Kourtney Kardashian is Pregnant

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 30th 2011 9:20AM
Kourtney KardashianAnd now for today's news from the world of the Kardashians ... Kim's older sister Kourtney has announced that she is pregnant. She told 'Us Weekly' that she took a pregnancy test about five weeks ago and is now nine weeks pregnant. "You're supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people," said Kourtney, "but I feel confident."

This will be Kourtney's second baby with her partner Scott Disick, and the pregnancy will no doubt be an integral part of the 2012 instalments of the Kardashian reality TV empire.

The couple's first child, Mason is almost two, and Scott told 'Us Weekly' that while this pregnancy wasn't planned, "It wasn't like we weren't trying. We kind of just said, 'If it's meant to be, it'll be.'"

Daniel Craig's Early Hollywood Experiences Weren't So Memorable (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 27th 2011 3:56AM
Daniel Craig, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Daniel Craig is one of the biggest stars in the world today, but that wasn't always the case. In fact, his first movie went so far under the radar, that when he mentioned it on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), the audience didn't even give him a courtesy clap.

It was as if they were all sitting there scratching their heads. 'The Power of One'? 1992 ... Well, we know who Stephen Dorff and Morgan Freeman are, but this one's not ringing a bell. We don't remember this one either, in all honesty.

The silence was so palpable in the studio that Kimmel actually stopped Craig's story. "Usually a couple of people will clap like they really know what it is and love it," he joked.

Jay Leno Asks About a Video of Daniel Craig Wearing a Dress (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 21st 2011 8:15AM
Daniel CraigDaniel Craig is the consummate ladies' man as Agent 007, James Bond. In a bold marketing movie spearheaded by a producer of the movie franchise, though, he sported an entirely different suit, and Jay Leno wanted to know about it on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

The short film, in support of International Women's Day 2011, is called 'Equals' and features Craig and the voice of Judi Dench. Both are in character as Bond and M, respectively, but they're discussing a very real issue in our world: Gender inequality.

In the spot, James Bond spends a few moments dressed as a woman, while M details the many inequalities that still exist between the genders.

"Funny as it is," Craig said. "It obviously has a very serious point to it. I just wanted to get as many people to notice as possible."

How About 'James Bond: The TV Series?'

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 20th 2010 4:05PM
James Bond logoSo MGM announced yesterday that the next James Bond movie -- number 23, if you're keeping track -- has been put on hold "indefinitely" because the studio is for sale and they have no idea what's going on with it.

This is scary stuff. It reminds me of those awful years when everything was put on hold so long that Timothy Dalton said "the heck with this, yo" and left and they were without a Bond for a while. Everything turned out OK, as Pierce Brosnan was Bond for several flicks and then Daniel Craig for the reboot. Let's hope that things get settled before everyone decides to move on.

But it got me thinking: isn't it about time we had a 007 TV series? Why not?

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Beefcake

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 3rd 2009 9:34AM
chuck(S02E15) Chuck was in a weird place last night. The character, that is, not the show. The show picked up on a storyline from a few weeks back and set up a future episode with a new character that seemed to me a nice contrast to the Casey-Sarah-Chuck triple play.

Remember "Chuck Versus the Suburbs," when Andy Richter's corpse was dragged away in a body bag? Well, he wasn't resurrected on Fringe, like one commenter suggested. No, he's dead and his body included a belt that contained some top-secret data, most importantly, the identity of the Intersect, i.e. Chuck.

The timing of the discovery couldn't be worse, though, because Chuck had just decided to "dump" Sarah as a fake girlfriend, feeling that they had no fake/real future. Of course, be careful what you wish for, Charles. More after the jump.

Kimmel... James Kimmel takes on Bond... James Bond - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 13th 2008 6:07PM
Jimmy Kimmel Live
The new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, opens in theaters tomorrow. And tonight, Jimmy Kimmel will welcome stars Daniel Craig and Olga Kurylenko to his talk show. Kimmel is going to open the show with a spoof of 007, with himself as the secret agent. After the jump is a sneak peek at the scene.

Kimmel does all of the usual Bondian things in the clip, including bedding a beautiful woman, dodging assassins, skiing, and also flying away to escape the bad guys. It's not on a jet pack though, it's via a bottle of soda. In fact, the entire skit seems to be sponsored by Coca-Cola. No shaken or stirred martinis for this spy.

Uncle Frank, Veatrice, and Guillermo also make appearances in the short film, of course. This isn't the first time that Jimmy Kimmel Live has spoofed a big-screen spy. They did a video take-off on the Bourne films too, which even featured a cameo by Matt Damon himself (long before Sarah Silverman was f***ing him).

Jonny Lee Miller: In the Limelight

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 21st 2008 2:43PM
Jonny Lee MillerWhen I first saw the commercials for ABC's Eli Stone, I didn't recognize Jonny Lee Miller. Then, after watching the first episode and liking him, I decided to find out who he was. Imagine my surprise when I learned that I had seen him, multiple times, in a variety of roles. And he was British! I was duly impressed and intrigued. Jonny Lee Miller was a helluva an actor, a chameleon who could be as convincing as a junkie named Sick Boy in Trainspotting as he was a San Francisco lawyer named Eli.

Barry Nelson, first James Bond, dead at 89

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 14th 2007 6:01PM

Barry NelsonA lot of people don't realize that the first James Bond wasn't Sean Connery on the big screen, it was Barry Nelson on television, on a 1954 episode of the CBS series Climax. Nelson played 007 in an adaptation of Casino Royale.

Nelson died in Buck's County, PA on April 7 while traveling. He was 89.

Besides the classic role of Bond, Nelson was a regular on the 50s series My Favorite Husband, and guest starred on several other shows, including The Twilight Zone, Murder, She Wrote, Fantasy Island, Magnum, P.I., Dallas, The Love Boat, Thriller, Cannon, Longstreet, The F.B.I., The Philco Playhouse, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and many others. On the big screen he was in several films, including The Shining, Airport, and Pete N' Tillie, and starred on stage in several productions.

Gordon Ramsay the most admired man in the UK

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 6th 2007 3:29PM

Gordon RamsayThis poll in the UK edition of Esquire isn't too much of a surprise I guess. I can understand why chef and TV host Gordon Ramsay is the most admired guy, especially in a popular, "of the moment" sort of way. But what I find funny is that he beat scientist and author Stephen Hawking, a man that has literally changed the way we look at space, time, and the universe.

Other people on the list after Ramsay (17%) and Hawking (14%) are Ray Mears (a TV survival expert - probably unknown to many of us here in the U.S.), who got 11% of the vote, new James Bond Daniel Craig, who also got 11%, and comedian/writer Ricky Gervais, who somehow only got 9% of the vote.

The new season of Hell's Kitchen, the U.S. show that Ramsay hosts, starts on FOX, June 4 at 9pm.

The Ladies Love Simon Cowell

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 5th 2006 8:42AM
Simon CowellLadies, who do you fantasize about when you're making sweet love to your partner? 'American Idol' judge Simon Cowell? Well, in wacky ole England, Cowell has placed second on a list of women's dream men right after "007" Daniel Craig. Cowell beat out David Beckham, Brad Pitt and Leo DiCaprio. Speaking with The Sun, Cowell had this to say about the honor: "I would expect to be very near the top as I'm obviously extremely attractive."

I'm not sure Cowell would even place in the top 10 stateside. What do you think it is that makes England's ladies weak in the knees for the bad boy judge? Could it be the tough, man hair that peeks out of his V-neck sweaters? The confidence? The power? Do they think he'd take charge in the sack? Frankly, he seems like the kinda guy that probably cries after sex. I wonder if in the British broads' fantasies, there's a panel of judges ranking their amorous activities upon completion -- something like Woody Allen's 'Bananas.' Just don't expect much for the East German judge.
