    LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- British actor Benedict Cumberbatch is the newest member of the “Star Trek” franchise, but he assured Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz, although he is the new “Trek” bad guy, he is not playing legendary villain Khan in the upcoming second installment of the origin series from J.J. Abrams.

    “A few have asked that which is strange,” Benedict told Scott on Monday, joking about it being “strange,” considering it was wildly speculated he would play the youthful version of the character originated by Ricardo Montalban in a 1967 episode of the “Star Trek” television series – “Space Seed” — and later in the 1980s film, “The Wrath of Khan.”

    “I play a character called John and not that other name,” Benedict continued. “It’s interesting. Speculation is speculation and that’s all fun.”

    On Tuesday, Benedict did reveal, however, some new details to Access’ MovieMantz at the junket for the first nine minutes of the film, “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which was first screened for journalists over the weekend.

    “I play John Harrison who’s a terrorist and an extraordinary character in his own right,” the Brit said. “He’s somebody who is not your two-dimensional cookie cutter villain. He’s got an extraordinary purpose, and I hope that at one point or other in the film you might even sympathize with the reasons he’s doing what he’s doing — not necessarily the means and the destruction he causes. But it was a great ride, not just because he’s the bad guy and the antagonist but also because he has a purpose and it’s hard not to see his point of view at certain points.”

    The actor, who also stars as Sherlock Holmes in PBS’ “Sherlock,” admitted he wasn’t looking to see a “Star Trek” film when the origin story of the reboot franchise first came out.

    “I wasn’t that interested in seeing a ‘Star Trek’ movie, I’ll be honest. I know you are a Trekspert, so forgive me,” the Brit told Scott. “It’s not out of any loathing of the genre or sci-fi or anything. I love it, but I just wasn’t that interested. And people said, ‘No, you should just go and see it. It’s a great film.’ And lo and behold, then all the Trekkie in me was reborn as well and I was just over the moon excited about them all meeting for the first time. I thought it was such an imaginative prequel.”

    And Benedict noted the new film takes things even further.

    “Without a doubt, it is truly epic,” he said. “It’s a big film. The scale of it is so much bigger than the first.”

    Benedict said he is aware this film is important to lifelong “Star Trek” fans, but he had to please his director, first and foremost.

    “You can’t try and fulfill everyone’s expectations. As an actor, my role in this is to fulfill my director’s promise in me and yeah, if I fulfill his trust in me, that’s it. That’s a job done. And then, I have full respect for the fans’ response. I know that they own this… A lot of people have grown [up] with this all of their lives… And that is important to me, but if you go about trying to please everybody, it’s a short way to madness.

    “It would paralyze you if you went to all of the comments… Having said that, I’ll be over the moon if the fans are happy,” he added.

    “Star Trek Into Darkness” hits theaters on May 17, 2013.



    He's not Khan! HE"S NOT KHAN!!

    Well, this is depressing: female authors are still using male pseudonyms — or ambiguous initials in hopes that prospective buyers won't realize they're ladies — because studies show more people read books written by dudes. Can you blame them?

    Some of history's most notable authors pretended they were men to sell more novels; probably the most famous are the Brontë sisters, who published as the Bell brothers, because, as Charlotte Brontë wrote, "we had a vague impression that authoresses are liable to be looked on with prejudice."

    Women still feel pressure to follow their example, even though that was 150 years ago.

    For example, there's Christina Lynch and Meg Howrey, who just wrote a new fantasy novel about a Beethoven scholar and a murder mystery in Prague under the name "Magnus Flyte," because he sounds like the kind of suave intellectual who would pen a thriller about what publishers consider "man issues," which apparently include mystique, symphonies, the back alleys of Prague, and everything else besides shoes, babies, and the color pink.

    "It sometimes makes sense for a female author to use a pseudonym, particularly when the main characters are male, or when it's a genre with a strong appeal to men, like military science fiction, certain types of fantasy or gritty thrillers," Penguin editor Anne Sowards told the Wall Street Journal. "When we think a book will appeal to male readers, we want everything about the book to say that-the cover, the copy and, yes, the author's name."

    Ugh ugh ugh. But the problem is that studies show men are more likely to read books that are written by other men; one study found that four out of five men said the last book they read was written by a dude. (Women don't discriminate by gender when it comes to literature. Interesting.) So nervous first-time authors feel pressure to do whatever it takes to sell as many novels as possible.

    Women rarely win prestigious literary awards, and they have especially low chances of winning them if they actually write about women — consider how few women have landed the Man Booker Prize, or how only 12 women have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature since 1909. It doesn't help that there are way fewer female book reviewers at publications, as well as fewer books by female authors that are reviewed. Waiiit a second. I know Sherlock Holmes was a man (and that women aren't supposed to write mysteries — someone should tell Agatha Christie!), but I think I sense a connection here...

    Some female authors end up compromising by using their androgynous names or initials, so people who buy their books won't think too hard about the gender of the author. Sowards' authors include K.A. Stewart, Rob Thurman and K.J. Taylor — all women who don't sound like women. Nice. Then, of course, there's J.K. Rowling, whose publisher warned her not to go by "Joanne" lest she scare off little boys across the country.

    The article concludes with an aside about how "editors are quick to note that it's not only women authors who feel pressure to write under pseudonyms: Romance readers would be surprised to learn some of their favorite bodice-rippers were penned by men." Oooh, like who? We don't get to find out; that's how the article (rather abruptly) ends. Oh well. I guess I could always go read some "Fiction for Men."

    The Last of Us dev says studio was asked to put Ellie on the back cover; claims it is a fallacy that putting a female on cover will lead to lesser sales.

    The cover art for Naughty Dog's PlayStation 3 action game The Last of Us features female protagonist Ellie alongside male character Joel, but not all wanted it this way. Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann and Ellie voice actress Ashley Johnson spoke out on the issue in a new VG247 interview.

    "I feel like they don’t put women on the covers because they’re afraid that it won’t sell," Johnson said. "It’s all gamers really know--and I don’t want to be sexist by any means--but I get the feeling, generally, that they think game’s won’t sell as well with a woman on the cover, compared to some badass dude on the front."

    Druckmann concurred with Johnson's assessment, claiming it is a fallacy that games with females on their covers will sell fewer copies than those with a male front and center. He also revealed that Naughty Dog was asked to take Ellie entirely off the front of the box art for The Last of Us.

    "I believe there’s a misconception that if you put a girl or a woman on the cover, the game will sell less," Druckmann said. "I know I’ve been in discussions where we've been asked to push Ellie to the back and everyone at Naughty Dog just flat-out refused."

    Box art has been a much-discussed issue of late. Irrational Games creative director Ken Levine recently responded to criticisms about the BioShock Infinite cover art, saying that it was designed for the uninformed, not fans of the series.

    The 22-year-old actress presented a video of Jon Bon Jovi visiting Sayreville, New Jersey after the destruction from Hurricane Sandy.

    “A day after the storm one of Jersey’s most famous own went back to his home town of Sayreville to see the devastation first hand. What Bon Jovi – sorry, Jon Bon Jovi – saw served to humble, inspire, and move him,” Kristen said.

    Anyone remember that flop, Tara Simon from this season's US X-Factor? She was basically CeCe in 20 years, over-sang everything, horrible fashion sense, talking shit about Gene Simmons daughter...yeah, her. Even though she got cut at the judge's homes, she's back with her first official music video. I absolutely hated her on the show, but the song and video are actually kinda good. I'm also into the X-Factor shade. Maybe getting cut was a good thing?

    Canadian Exclaim! interviews Ke$ha

    Exclaim! Ke$ha Questionnaire
    [I skip the boring disclaimer and jump right to the interview. Disclaimer at the source.]


    This love is supernatural - can you feeeeel itttt???

    What are you up to?
    This exact moment I am trying to even out my eyeliner but it's not working. I have a wonky eye.

    What are your current fixations?
    My cat Mr. Peeps is the love of my life. I'm obsessed with him and take him everywhere. I take him to the grocery store, the doctor's office, into the studio, in rehearsals — I take him everywhere. He's so cute. He's my best friend and I love him.

    Why do you live where you do?
    I'm from Nashville and my family's here. Plus it has so much soul. It's genuinely a part of who I am and I just didn't want to move.

    Name something you consider a mind-altering work of art:
    Pink Floyd's The Wall. The album and the visuals that go with it were very influential on this record.

    What has been your most memorable or inspirational gig and why?
    I played to a crowd of about 300,000 people in Budapest, Hungary. I'm Hungarian, and it was this massive show that was one of the most insane thing's I've ever seen. I realized then and there that words have power. It was a huge deal.

    What have been your career highs and lows?
    I think my highs would be that show in Hungary, playing Rock in Rio, performing with Stevie Wonder and getting to work with Iggy Pop. The main lows are just when I come across online scrutiny that is mean beyond necessity.

    What's the meanest thing ever said to you before, during or after a gig?
    Probably when people say that I can't sing because I used Auto-tune on my first record. I wanted to set the record straight so I've put out an acoustic EP called Deconstructive.

    What should everyone shut up about?
    Everyone should be themselves, love themselves and mind their own business.

    What traits do you most like and most dislike about yourself?
    I like my cat… I guess that's not myself. I like my ability to laugh at myself, especially in this business I think it's important. I dislike how I'm overly emotional and kind of psychotic when it comes to relationships.

    What's your idea of a perfect Sunday?
    Having sex and eating candy. All day.

    What advice should you have taken, but did not?
    I don't really live like that. I live with no regrets and think everything happens for a reason.

    What would make you kick someone out of your band and/or bed, and have you?
    I did have to fire somebody because they ate whale when we went to Japan. That's not acceptable to me. I'm an animal rights activist. And for my bed, if someone acts selfish they will get the boot.

    What do you think of when you think of Canada?
    I think of giant bearded men that wear red flannels, Bell, beer and killer whales and bears. Is that pretty accurate?

    What was the first LP/cassette/CD/eight track you ever bought with your own money?
    I remember being obsessed with "Gettin' Jiggy With It," that Will Smith song. I don't remember if I bought it, I just remember being obsessed with it.

    What was your most memorable day job?
    I was a telemarketer. It was incredibly soul crushing. I only did it for two days though. I was like, "Fuck that!"

    How do you spoil yourself?
    I'm not the most extravagant person. I only have one car and half the time it doesn't even run. But I did buy the world's biggest bed. I had it specifically made for me because I like having slumber parties. Comfortably it fits ten people. It's the funnest place in the world. It's twice as big as a California king size bed.

    If I wasn't playing music I would be…
    Dead. Or I'd be a hobo.

    What do you fear most?
    It's not failure because I'm not afraid to fail. It's more when I'm afraid to not try something. I'd rather fail than be too scared to ever try something. Like I was really nervous to get into a room and work with Iggy Pop, who's my idol.

    What makes you want to take it off and get it on?
    Bearded dude, big wiener, motorcycle. With a kitten. Like if Sons of Anarchy and Hello Kitty had a baby.

    What has been your strangest celebrity encounter?
    One of the strangest was when I ran into Snoop Dogg during a party at Coachella at six a.m. Now we're really close friends. He introduced himself by passing a joint and I was like, "Hello Snoop, I love you. Living up to all my expectations."

    Who would be your ideal dinner guest, living or dead, and what would you serve them?
    I would really like to sit down and talk wardrobe with Marc Bolan or Liberace. And I would probably skip dinner and go straight to the drinking. Some sort of weird concoction made out of blueberries and whiskey.

    What does your mom wish you were doing instead?
    Nothing! We wrote five songs together for my new record. She's not only supportive but a huge part of what I do.

    What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
    I think it would be a record, Jeff Buckley's Grace. It's definitely a tear-jerker, it's beautiful and I love his voice.

    Lindsay Lohan nearly torpedoed her episode of "Million Dollar Decorators" on Bravo -- after the network spent roughly $200,000 renovating Lindsay's Beverly Hills mansion -- because TMZ has learned she refused to film the big reveal moment for the show.

    Sources close to Lindsay tell us she agreed to film the segment for the show earlier this year -- and in exchange, the people behind MDD spent $200,000 on expensive furniture and other trappings for her house ... which Lindsay's now renting for $8,000 a month.

    We're told Lindsay was initially cooperative -- filming a furniture shopping segment back in March and spending several more days shooting in the home before the renovations.

    The show then went to work on the house -- filming the entire renovation process -- but when it came time to shoot the big reveal in April, Lindsay stopped returning their calls.

    Lindsay's since been living in the house -- and according to sources, the home is now so messy ... it's completely unfilmable.

    We're told MDD producers have since decided to use canned post-renovation footage (without Lindsay) as the big reveal moment.

    Calls to the network were not returned. The episode's scheduled to air early next year.


    Not surprised by this but wtf, how can you trash such a nice house when so many people are struggling???

    For those of you who enjoyed this summer's guilty pleasure that was Oxygen's The Glee Project, have we got a bombshell for you! 

    Remember Dani Shay, the super-adorable butchy lady who also appeared on America's Got Talent, but for some reason we still don't understand got sent home about halfway through the season? We thought so.

    And of course you'll recall Ali Stroker, the spunky blonde with a voice bound for Broadway, who made it to the final three (and arguably still should have beat out Blake Jenner for a recurring role on Glee). Did you know she's a lesbian, too?

    And even better — did you know Dani and Ali are in love? Because we didn't until the couple released this adorable video, simply titled "One." The couple announces their romance with heartwarming lyrics and more than a few steamy makeout scenes—which somehow never made it into The Glee Project. (Further evidence of creator Ryan Murphy's squeamishness about lesbians? We think so.)

    Watch the video, produced with FUN. and The Ally Coalition, below.

    Thank you so much for watching our video.
    I’d like to tell you how I feel about the video, and why I wanted to
    share it. Over a year ago I met Dani at the glee project call backs. We
    connected in a way I have never connected with anyone in my life. It was
    never about gender or my wheelchair or the number of YouTube hits. It
    was always about the feeling that I felt when I was around her. We
    laughed so hard that weekend we cried.  The joy and trust was immediate.
    Dani and I shared our goals and I realized how aligned we were.  I
    recognized our connection was bigger than just the two of us and we
    could say something together.

    I’ll be very honest, when Dani had the idea to make the video I was
    nervous. I worried that this was another way for someone to put me in a
    box. Then I realized I felt even stronger knowing this is another way to
    help people see beyond the box!  We are so much more than the
    categories we place ourselves in. I have never just wanted to be labeled
    “the girl  in the wheelchair” so I was scared that this would be
    another opportunity for someone to label me.  I know that I am more than
    that.  I’ve never let labels define who I am.

    I never expected to meet Dani and fall in love, and I especially
    never expected that I would want to share it with the world. Here I am. I
    couldn’t be more proud to share my love with all of you. No matter who
    you are. No matter what you think is or isn’t possible I am telling you
    that life’s surprises are the best gifts! I never thought I could have
    it all. It didn’t seem possible. I can say now, I feel like I got my
    fairy tale.

    One last thing, I want to thank Dani.  This has been ONE of the
    greatest adventures of my life. You’ve helped me see so many new
    beautiful parts of life. Thank you for loving every part of who I am.
    Love really feels limitless with you!


    To PRE ORDER “ONE: The Winter EP” (featuring a duet of “Let it Snow” between Dani and I)  go to…

    Your television screen is spattered with more blood than ever before, what with all the zombies and vampires, meth fiends and Prohibition gangsters who populate our favorite dramas. From the biker treachery of Sons of Anarchy to the boardroom betrayal of Mad Men, it's one big American horror story. Here are 10 of the most brutal, shocking and delectable deaths from the 2012 TV season.

    'True Blood': Russell Edgington Stakes Roman Zimojic (Season Five, Episode Six)

    Deaths on True Blood are so commonplace, the only way to shock the fans at this point is to kill off a major character as soon as he or she is introduced. That's exactly what happened to megalomaniac vampire Roman Zimojic, whose storyline came to a screeching halt after just five episodes at the hands of the diabolical Russell Edgington – proving once again that no character, however powerful, is safe on this show. This rule of thumb re-emerged at the season's end, when we bade a blood-teared adieu to Russell himself (staked by Eric Northman, settling a 1,000-year grudge), and when, after downing a vial of vampire goddess Lilith's blood, Bill Compton was reborn an indeterminate hybrid the interwebs have unofficially dubbed "Billith."

    'Gossip Girl' (The Series)

    "You know you love me, XOXO." Oh, but how we did, dear Gossip Girl! Remember when that show was everything? Dan and Serena! Chuck! Blair (and Nate)! Dorota! The Met steps, little J before she became a punk-rock raccoon, and the time when every masked ball, every fundraiser and every champagne brunch felt like it was the place to be, because it was? Those times became a distant memory sometime around 2010, when ­– seemingly overnight – the show's guilty pleasure appeal became tired and uninspired and we no longer actually cared who was hooking up with whom or when (if) Chuck and Blair would finally play it for keeps. But the CW kept the Josh Schwartz teen show a-churnin' for three more seasons, until, in the spring of 2012, the network finally realized it was time to put the show out of its misery with a half-season order. And so, we raise our glass of champagne to the Upper East Siders. Here's to the good times, despite how long ago they actually were.

    'Sons of Anarchy': Saying Goodbye to a 'Son' (Season Five, Episode Three)

    There have been plenty of deaths on Sons of Anarchy over the years (see: Piney and Half-Sack), but none shocked fans more than the unexpected demise of Opie, played by Ryan Hurst. The brutal lead-pipe prison beating of the fan favorite left many asking, "Why?" But in the realm of SAMCRO, it was the only way to save Opie's best buddy, Jax, from a similar fate. The onscreen death was compounded by the grisly real-life murder-suicide involving Johnny Lewis, who played the aforementioned Half-Sack, that unfolded just hours after the episode aired. It was a sad example of life imitating art, in the worst possible way.

    'Boardwalk Empire': Owen Sleater in a Box (Season Three, Episode 10)

    The murder of Boardwalk Empire's most unhinged mobster, Gyp Rosetti, may have been Season Three's splashiest death, but given the battle lines that had been drawn between Gyp and Nucky Thompson, we figured at least one of them would wind up six feet under. It was the subtle, offscreen killing of Nucky's right-hand man, former IRA soldier Owen Sleater, that had us all jumping up from our couches when his body was delivered in a wooden crate to Nucky's Ritz-Carlton suite – a casualty of the botched assassination attempt on Joe Masseria. The consequences of Owen's murder went beyond gangster reindeer games, though: in the season finale, a distraught Margaret Thompson, whose affair with Owen had resulted in an illegitimate pregnancy, made the heart-wrenching decision to abort the baby.
    (Still not over it. Never)

    'Mad Men': Lane Pryce Resigns (Season Five, Episode 12)

    When Mad Men returned after a 17-month absence this past March, the show appeared to be suffering from a case of uncharacteristic jollies. Namely, Don Draper, womanizer extraordinaire, was happily married and displaying zero signs of infidelity. Yet the fifth season turned out to be especially dark, with the story line of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce's financial officer coming to a bleak end in the penultimate episode. After learning that Lane had embezzled funds from the company to pay back taxes, Don was forced to demand the British expatriate's resignation. Personally and professionally humiliated, Lane hangs himself on the door to his office (following a bungled self-asphyxiation attempt in his brand-new Jaguar), leaving his bereaved colleagues to discover his dead body.

    'As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel that I have ever been loved': Sean Penn opens up about his split from Robin Wright 

    He has been married twice - to Madonna for four years, and then to actress Robin Wright for 13 years.
    And now Sean Penn has opened up about his heartbreak over the failed relationships.


    The Hollywood star tells Esquire magazine that he thinks that throughout his romantic life, no woman has ever really loved him.
    The 52-year-old, who muses over his love life with the magazine, saying: 'There is no shame in saying that we all want to be loved by someone. As I look back over my life in romance, I don’t feel I’ve ever had that,' he tells the magazine.
    'I have been the only one that was unaware of the fraud in a few of these circumstances blindly.'
    Penn and Wright had a particularly turbulent relationship.
    After the pair, who now share two grown-up children, tied the knot in 1996, their relationship went from on to off in the late 2000s.
    The couple filed for divorce in 2007 only to dismiss the filing and reconcile shortly after.
    But in 2009, the union appeared to had sour again and Penn filed for legal separation only to once again withdraw it and reconcile with his wife in May.
    It was finally over in August 2009, when Wright filed for divorce and the couple's split was made official in July 2010.
    Penn tells the magazine that divorce made him realise the truth about his relationship.
    'When you get divorced, all the truths that come out, you sit there and you go, "What the f*** was I doing? What was I doing believing that this person was invested in this way?" Which is a fantastically strong humiliation in the best sense,' he says.
    'It can make somebody very bitter and very hard and closed off, but I find it does the opposite to me.'
    Cover boy: The actor graces the cover of the January edition of Esquire magazine
    Penn explains that the couple's divorce also impacted on how he handled co-parenting the pair's children - daughter Dylan, 21, and son Hopper, 19.
    It was a particularly tough time when Hopper recently underwent brain surgery after a skateboarding accident.
    'When he was recovering, seeing the morphine go into him and give him relief created kind of a love affair for me with morphine and that usage of it,' Penn says.
    'It had already been eight months of divorce and s***, and raising a kid that's going through the divorce himself, and then this f***ing thing happens ...it was a tough, tough time.'
    Penn reveals that after his son Hopper moved in with Wright following their split, he was left confused about what was next.
    With time on his hands, Penn had began watching television and saw the crisis in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake.
    'I thought, "Wow, I can actually go on a date." And so I go out and I strike out four nights in a row, drinking at a bar and ending up home, you know, drunk,' he explains.
    'And on the fourth day I said, "I could just go sit in the middle of the bed and watch TV at four in the afternoon, too. I don't have anything." My daughter's ... doing her thing, my son's with his mother. So I turned on the TV and there was this earthquake in Haiti.'
    It wasn't long after this point that Penn co-founded the J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
    'The road started with the most obvious kind of trauma, my son's head, and then to get to a place that had been just so devastated and traumatized, and then to see that in fact most of the trauma actually predated the earthquake,' he says.
    'You had a country that had never experienced anything that related to comfort, and out of that you had great trauma - but also this great strength that, I think, we all benefited from.'

    In this first video Zach talks about how Into Darkness is "bigger" than the 2009 movie and more "absorbing."

    In this second video Scott Mantz (a huge Trek fan) asks about how the original Star Trek has many allegorical episodes and how Into Darkness ties into today, where they talk more about how the villain (Cumberbatch’s John Harrison) is a "terrorist." Pine also talks about how Kirk and Spock are two halves of the same person and how they are still on an arc together. Quinto talks about what a visionary Gene Roddenberry was and contrasts him with JJ Abrams.

    And in this final video Quinto and Pine contrasted the villains in the 2009 Star Trek film and Into Darkness, and in doing so at one point Quinto accidentally says "Khan" instead of Nero. That should fuel some more speculation even in light of what Cumberbatch says below. Both talk about how Cumberbatch’s character has a big psychological impact on the crew.

    lbr though no one is surprised cos there all lying liars who lie

    Lindsay Lohan is on the verge of losing expensive designer clothes, family heirlooms and potentially embarrassing items ... because she hasn't paid her storage bill and as a result the unit is about to go up on the auction block.

    Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... LiLo has fallen behind on paying her monthly bill ... and now owes roughly $16,000 to the storage company.

    The account is now delinquent and the locker can't be opened until the balance is paid in full ... and that's not going to happen because Lindsay doesn't have the cash. As we reported, her financial situation is so desperate the IRS has frozen her bank accounts because of unpaid back taxes.

    So here's the upshot. If Lindsay doesn't get a big check for XMAS, her storage unit will be auctioned off this month. We're told she's reached out to family and friends to front her the money but so far no one is biting.

    Talk about a good "Storage Wars" episode.
