Here's George Clooney getting crushed by a piano

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:27PM
You don't see George Clooney doing commercials in the U.S. (except for some voice overs) but like a lot of celebrities he does them overseas. Like this ad for Nestle Nespresso.

It's never explained, however, why John Malkovich is greeting him in heaven. Unless it's not supposed to be Malkovich and is just a character he's playing.

America's Got Talent: Top 20 results show two

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 10th 2009 3:19PM
America's Got Talent - Top 20 results show, S04E24(S04E24) Nick asked the crowd who they'd like to see in the finals, and of course, it was impossible to tell which names they yelled out, since all of the acts have their fans at this point.

Tonight we learn who's taking the last five spots in the finals. Nick also reminded us that the next show will air Monday, Sept. 14, and that there's no judge's pick tonight. The five who go through will be the five that America voted for. As it should be, in my view.

After a brief recap of last night's show, Nick asked Piers why he X'd the acts he did. Piers said it's a simple formula -- a game of the good and the not-so-good. Sharon gave another shout out to Barbara Padilla, whom she absolutely loves. Hoff said, "I'm Hoff crazy!" He also reminded us that they've seen a hundred thousand acts and it's getting down to the wire.

America's Got Talent: Top 20 performance show two

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Sep 9th 2009 12:30AM
America's Got Talent(S04E23) There were mixed feelings amongst viewers last week when the America's Got Talent judges announced that they couldn't decide who, between Voices of Glory and Fab 5, should get the fourth place in what was supposed to be a final round of the top eight acts of the summer.

It wasn't much of a surprise when Nick announced at the beginning of this week's performance show that there would be no judges' pick. It wouldn't make sense to have a Top 9, eh? I'm happy that more acts -- aka the same number as last year -- will get to perform in the finals. But what I'm happier for is that America will pick the final five acts to enter the next round. No judges' pick. The results will be solely based on the number of votes.

How did the ten remaining acts perform this week? Which acts should move on? My two cents, Piers' many Xs, and your comments coming up!

America's Got Talent: Results show three

America's Got Talent(S04E18) "The most electrifying show yet!" - Nick, about last night's performance show

Nick is right. Last night was electrifying, even if a few acts got X'd. It was one of the best show's we've had so far this season.

As I noted in my review of the performance episode, I expected Jeffrey Ou to lose some votes because viewers weren't able to hear him play the piano in the second part of his acts. But a few of our site visitors said they voted for him because he wasn't given a fair chance.

Will Jeffrey get another chance by moving on to the Top 20? Results coming up!

Captain Mustache: the return - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Nov 12th 2006 9:02PM

brendon smallBack in August I posted a clip of Brendon Small, creator of Home Movies and Metalocalypse, performing a stand-up routine as a mumbling character called Captain Mustache. Home Movies ranks as one of my favorite shows of all time, and Metalocalypse holds a special place in my dark, twisted heart for its over-the-top depiction of the raw brutality of heavy metal. Small has a knack for divining humor out of what seems like thin air, and I'm both entertained and made insanely jealous by his talent. The same YouTube user who posted the original Captain Mustache video has posted another one, and you can watch it after the jump. This time the Captain even sings and plays the piano, giving a whole new dimension to Toto's "Africa" that just might make you weep at its brilliance.

David Bowie is hilarious on Extras -- VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 26th 2006 4:13PM
david bowie; ricky gervaisThe celebrity cameos are getting ridiculously funny on Extras, which is airing season two right now in Britain (HBO hasn't announced an air date for season two in the U.S.). Last week, it was Orlando Bloom trying to convince 'Maggie' that he's more famous than Johnny Depp. This week, it's David Bowie in a restaurant, singing a song about Andy and his pug nose face. It's completely over the top and, in true Ricky Gervais style, it's uncomfortably hilarious.

Video is after the jump.

Star Trek/Simpsons musical mash-up -- VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Sep 18th 2006 6:02PM
simpsonsI found this on YouTube several days ago and thought y'all would get a kick out of it. A very talented young man has created a musical masterpiece that combines the Star Trek theme with the Simpsons theme. These kind of mash-ups have been all over the Web since Danger Mouse mixed Jay-Z's Black Album with the Beatles' White Album and called it The Grey Album. I think this one trumps them all, however, because you also get to see some weirdo dancing around his room while the music plays. I think the peeps over at The Simpsons should get in touch with this guy and use his song on one of their episodes. Check it out after the jump:

Alicia Keys bringing story to UPN

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 12th 2006 12:01PM
UPN has decided to stick with the "celebrity coming of age" approach for a new drama based on the childhood of recording artist Alicia Keys. Heck, it worked for Chris Rock.The series will be based on Keys', who had a white mother and a black father and was raised by her mother in Hell's Kitchen after her parents divorced when she was two. She started playing piano at six and eventually grew up to be a popular singer and pianist, selling over fifty billion copies of her first album in just under eight minutes. The show will be written by Felicia Henderson, who wrote for Family Matters and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Keys will executive produce.
