Look-A-Like for Halloween

Who better to dress up as for Halloween than your favourite celebrity? We spoke to Paul Venoit, make-up artist on Canadian series 'Look-A-Like', for tips and tricks to make your costume the talk of the town. The TV series takes ordinary, everyday people and transforms them into whatever celebrity the person claims to look like. Check out this gallery of last season's 'Look-A-Like' participants. http://xml.channel.aol.com/xmlpublisher/fetch.v2.xml?option=expand_relative_urls&dataUrlNodes=uiConfig,feedConfig,entry&id=756837&pid=756836&uts=1256575323 http://cdn.channel.aol.com/cs_feed_v1_6/csfeedwrapper.swf Look-A-Likes Amy Adams - Before Richard Sibbald AOL Television is not responsible for caption content Look-A-Likes Amy Adams - Before Richard Sibbald Amy Adams - After Richard Sibbald/WireImage Blake Lively - Before Richard Sibbald Blake Lively - After Richard Sibbald/WireImage Carrie Underwood - Before Richard Sibbald Carrie Underwood - After...

Dolly Parton Explains How She Lost Dolly Parton Look-a-Like Contest (VIDEO)

Dolly Parton admits she once lost a Dolly Parton look-a-like contest, and has difficulty choosing her own photo from a lineup of Parton impersonators on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC). Parton said she once participated in a look-a-line contest with drag queens held on Santa Monica Boulevard and, amazingly, she lost....

'Access Hollywood Live' Looks at Royal Wedding Souvenirs (VIDEO)

What better way to commemorate the royal wedding than with inappropriate or poorly-made souvenirs? On 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated), Billy Bush and Kit Hoover look at a range of royal wedding mementos, including a naughty photo album and a mug featuring a printing error. 'Kate and Wills Up the Aisle' is a photo collection of celeb and royal look-a-likes in a variety of compromising positions. One photo even shows a faux David Beckham attempting to seduce an ersatz Kate Middleton on the day of the wedding....

ABC uses flash mobs to promote Ugly Betty

Remember flash mobs? ABC has made a marketing tool out off the short-lived phenomenon. To promote Ugly Betty, which premieres tonight at 8 pm, the network sent actresses dressed as 'Betty' to New York's hottest tourist spots today. They showed up in groups of 100 so they wouldn't be missed by busy New Yorkers and would be gawked at by tourists. The actresses wore brown wigs, ponchos and thick, black glasses... in the style of the main character on Ugly Betty. ABC pulled the same marketing stunt during fashion week when a mob of Betty look-a-likes showed up at fashion shows....

The Most Memorable Suitors From 'The Bachelorette' Season 7 Premiere

Hello readers! It's your favorite Bachelor blogger Lincee Ray of www.iHateGreenBeans.com. It's good to be back on AOL TV this season providing informative Top 5 moments each week as Ashley vies for the affection of one mama's boy, a gaggle of fraternity brothers, three Josh Groban look-a-likes, one confused thespian and a handful of blonds with pretty teeth. I have one word that describes last night's episode ... special. As always, I have taken great pride and tremendous effort to narrow down from 25 men to the top five guys that made a significant first impression, and I'd like to present them to you in playlist form....

Short-Lived Shows: The Oblongs

I miss this show and am truly thankful that they released the full series on DVD. It only lasted around a dozen episodes on The WB and was later picked up by Cartoon Network, but it certainly didn't get the run is deserved. It starred Will Ferrell as Bob Oblong: a legless, armless everyman who smoked a pipe. Jean Smart (who recently joined the cast of 24) voiced his wife Pickles. The show was just pure madness. They lived in one big nuclear waste pile and just about everyone was screwed up in some way, shape, or form (just look at the picture). But what I really enjoyed was it's social commentary ("nuclear" family was an obvious pun). The highlight was The Debbies - a squad of look-a-like high school blondes who were attached at the hip. They talked alike, they dressed alike, and they reminded me of someone I knew so it just made it all that more special. Highly recommended, some of Ferrell's funniest stuff. Check it out on Cartoon Network if they still play the reruns....

Lynda Carter Wants Sandra Bullock to Don Wonder Woman's Tights

...and so do I, except I'm pretty sure Mrs. Carter is referring to a new incarnation of her famous TV show. TV's original red, white and blue-clad beauty told a morning talk show in Los Angeles that she wants Mrs. Bullock to play the title role in a big screen remake of 'Wonder Woman,' the TV show that made her famous. Carter said she believes Bullock is perfect for the role because she has "exactly the kind of personality" and that she's also "strong and feminine. And Wonder Woman has to be accessible". She also dismissed rumors that claimed she said Bullock was too old for the role. Me? If she gets the role, I just want to see her kick the ever-living snot out of some Jesse James bad-guy look-a-like. Jesse James is such a dead man now. [via Fark] ...

E! declares the most awful celebrity in Hollywood, as chosen by you

What a great idea! In this era of people becoming celebrities for the stupidest reasons (I had a bunch of kids), or getting reality shows for even worse reasons (I'm rich!), there are certainly more stupid celebrities out there than there used to be in, say, the Cosby era. Back then it was primarily sports athletes and performers. Which means they all had a bit of talent. With so much realty schlock on the air today, that's no longer required to be famous. Granted, there were always the occasional "fifteen minutes" guy or gal, but not like we have now. E! put together a list of 128 celebrities, including lots of actors, and let you vote on who was worse. They put them up head to head over nine rounds to get our winner and in the end it came down to two celebrities who are famous based on no merit of their own: Nadya "Octomom" Suleman and Spencer (The Hills, I'm a Celebrity...) Brat Pratt; Heidi made the list but not the finals. So who was E!s most awful celebrity?...

American Dad: Star Trek

It's still my least favorite of the animated block on Fox's sunday night lineup (although admittedly I'm not including King of the Hill because I've only seen like two episodes), but American Dad is growing on me. I've been critical of it in the past, especially when it plays out the same plots over and over and over again, but when they stray from this formula and branch out, I think it can be a really funny show. I thought tonight's episode was funny, it had a slightly different feel to it, but I think that was at least part of the point. On with the show!...

Arrested Development: Save Our Bluths

Ok, plain and simple, Fox just doesn't deserve this show. Regardless of what they "want to do with it", they don't deserve Arrested Development. Cancel it and let ABC or Showtime try something instead. I mean, what idiot at Fox decided to put the funniest episode of the season up against the Fiesta Bowl? This is just the latest example of their complete lack of respect for one of the funniest shows ever. There are only so many ways that you can screw up perfection, and I'm pretty sure Fox has now run the gamut. At the end of a good show's run, they always try and pull some kind of stunt to bring back some new viewers. Tonight's episode was like a Cliff's Notes version, and it was brilliant. On with the show!...

As Seen on YouTube: A Royal Wedding Video Roundup

William and Kate's nuptials are only days away, which means there's only a few more days of embarrassingly bad television news reporting of the event to endure. I don't think it's quite as bad in the U.S., but since Will will eventually be our head of state, the Canadian press has decided we Canadians want endless coverage of the "I do" affair. CBC's news 'The National' has included a few minutes of wedding reporting in almost every episode for the last month (blessedly, usually after news about our upcoming election, though you can tell they'd love to lead with it). All the cable nets have a few specials going, entirely composed of event speculation: What will Will and Kate spend their money on? What will people wear to the wedding? How valuable will plates with their faces be in ten years? My feeling is, if you're going to make stuff up and speculate about all the event's details, you might as well have fun with it (something mainstream networks haven't done, yet). Which is what drew my eyes...

Survivor Fiji: Something Cruel Is About to Happen...Real Soon

(S14E01) Season 14 and how are they going to mix it up this time? We've had old versus young, men versus women, and last season's controversial race against race season. This is the season of haves and have-nots because nothing provokes discord like sleeping under a tree with the knowledge that members of the other tribe are living it up with a couch. A couch? I wonder if the team living in the lap of luxury will later be at a disadvantage from living too soft. And didn't I already see this concept on the latest season of The Apprentice? Still, the overall tribe looks to be a bit more compelling than the usual and maybe a bit more feisty than last season's precision fighting team over at Aitu....

Brothers & Sisters: The Road Ahead (season premiere)

(S04E01) "William was a cheater. He had this bottle-blond tramp across town..." - Nora's mother to Holly The dysfunctional Walker clan is back, and it didn't take long for the squabbling and worrying and break-ups and tragedies to surface. Things open right away with Nora's feeling of foreboding, and with this family, it's usually warranted. There's generally a nice mix of comedy and drama in Brothers & Sisters, and this episode followed suit....

'American Idol' Auditions No. 2: New Orleans Recap

Different city, same, mostly underwhelming, auditions as 'American Idol' made its way to "N'awlins," a city with a culture rich in swamps, alligators and drunk people wearing beads, as 'Idol" would have us believe. That's not to say that season 10's third hour didn't show any promise. It looks like there's a lot to look forward to this season, not just from the thirty-seven contestants that made it to Hollywood but also with our trifecta of new judges, who gelled nicely in tonight's second outting....

Chuck -- An early look

Let me make myself clear from the get go: Watch Chuck this fall. I have seen the first two episodes and I am in love. You can read the rest of this spoiler-free early look if you want a little bit more about the show, but I just had to get that off my chest before I started. Chuck follows the recent trend in television and film of Beta-male leads. What do I mean by that term, one that was obviously developed by some social anthropology professor with too much time on his hands? Nerds are hot right now....
