The now-infamous cast of Eclipse, the Twilight sequel have been spotted throughout Vancouver where the third installment of the series is currently filming. It will be a prime time for some snooping too, as rumours have been flying about romances between a number of duos on the set.
Lead actors Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson arrived just days ago, Stewart still clad with a mullet from her title role in the Joan Jett biopic Runaways. They were sited a few nights ago getting cozy at a Kings of Leon concert in Vancouver Aug. 15, with photos of them practically making out appearing on RadarOnline.com and Just Jared. This comes after the two attended Comic-Con, an international and now celebrity hot spot comic book convention in San Diego, where they were practically joined at the hip according to the Los Angeles Times.

Just when I thought Ryan Gosling couldn’t get any sexier. Well, he’s in a band now. Not just any band – a duo with his best friend (and sister’s ex-boyfriend) Zach Shields called Dead Man’s Bones featuring, throughout the entire album, the Silverdale Conservatory Children’s Choir.
The result: songs with titles like “My Body is a Zombie for You” (the chorus of which is shouted by the aforementioned children), set to ominous piano-folk and the Roy Orbison-esque voice of Gosling. The mood is something like the Billy the Kid scene from I’m Not There, and if that reference is too obscure, let’s just call it Halloween. In the video for the band’s first single, “In the Room Where You Sleep”, the choir is outfitted in an array of costumes from skeleton to pirate to ghost.
Gosling has clearly gotten into character yet again – he and Shields created their own label, Werewolf Heart, that will release the debut Never Let a Lack of Talent Get You Down this summer. (Werewolf Heart has also taken on upcoming releases from Ima Robot and The Goat.) And just this week, Dead Man’s Bones announced plans for a North American tour in October, with stops in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, and will include a local talent show before each performance.
THE KING OF QUEENS revolves around Doug and Carrie Heffernan, a loving blue-collar couple from Queens, N.Y., who share their humble home with her eccentric father, Arthur. After a long day’s work as a parcel deliveryman, Doug retreats to his home for some peace and quiet, which is often interrupted by Carrie’s father, for whom they have hired a dog-walker, Holly, to take him on walks. Doug’s only refuges are the little time he spends alone with Carrie and the company of his buddy Spence, and his brother, Danny, whom he turns to for advice that just might make his life better, if he only bothered to follow it.

Scrubs star Sarah Chalke and her fiancee, entertainment lawyer Jamie Afifi, are expecting their first child this winter, reports Life & Style Weekly.
Ottawa-born Chalke, 32, has played Dr. Elliott Reid on the popular medical comedy for eight seasons.
Officially one of the funniest interviews of the year. I mean what else could it be when a group renames the interviewer “DJ BJ”. Really fun guys with some interesting stories about being on the road and being surrounded by ladies. We do apologize for the shaky camera work for Jenn’s intro that was also out of focus. We think our camera man was drunk or high when this was filmed.
If I could party with any celebrity, it would be The Black Eyed Peas. And I think that’s exactly what they are going for. After all, they have managed to make a living off it.
Their latest album, The E.N.D. is a self-proclaimed party soundtrack and has skyrocketed them to the top of the Billboard charts in a record-breaking leap. Between singles “Boom Boom Pow” and “I Gotta Feeling”, BEP clocked in 20 weeks up there, beating legends like Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
The record isn’t a new theme for the group who have made a name for themselves with songs like “Let’s Get Retarded” and “Pump It”. Not much has changed in the four years since their last release. Except the resurfacing of mainstream electro-house music, which the peas were exposed to on various world tours and quickly adapted to fit their hip-pop repertoire thanks to guest DJs like Mstrkrft and Crookers.
Who knew Anglo-American relations could be so funny? Directed by Armando Lannucci, “In the Loop” shows just how loopy politicians can be. Be prepared for a nonstop ride of satirical humour made famous by the Brits.
After Simon Foster, a bumbling British minister for international development played by Tom Hollander, unknowingly backs a U.S. war in the Middle East (by suggesting war is “unforeseeable”) during an interview, the Prime Minister’s communications chief (Peter Capaldi) is left to clean up the mess as tension rises amongst both countries.
Soon enough, British government officials land in Washington, D.C., where a U.S. General (James Gandolfini) thinks war is just a crazy idea and the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Diplomacy (Mimi Kennedy) tries to infiltrate the War committee. Foster continues to make things worst by trying to gatecrash a slew of government meetings while his young assistant (Chris Addison) gets distracted by a sexy American intern (Anna Chlumsky), which leads to a United National Security Council vote that makes war seem “unforeseeable.”
See, I wasn’t joking about the roller coaster part, nor the comedy. “In the Loop” features nonstop dialogue back and forth, due in part to Capaldi’s character (said to be a satirized version of real-life British politician Alastair Campbell), Malcolm Tucker. For every adjective used by Malcolm, two or more profanities follow (his favourite is “horse cock”). Capaldi delivers by far the standoff performance in this film (a character he also plays in the British TV series “The Thick of It”). But after all, the script is simply hilarious. Judge for yourself. Here’s a sample of what to expect:
It appears that Entourage is really reaching new heights with it’s cameos of athletes.
First Tom Brady- beyond awesome, then a brief Steve Nash- cool stuff, but now viewers should prep themselves to see one of the biggest global superstars on the planet, the King himself, LeBron James!
Not sure exactly which episode it’ll be, but Jeremy Piven -a huge fan of the NBA and James himself- took a little video of the guy on the set:
It only seemed like a matter of time before World War Two was “Tarantino-ized.” After all, it’s the perfect setting for the “Pulp Fiction” director’s self-proclaimed poetry and mind-boggling gore.
Set in the first year of Germany’s occupation of France, “Inglourious Basterds” – a film that’s loosely based on the 1978 Italian war flick “The Inglorious Bastards” – kicks off with Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (played by German actor Christoph Waltz) who’s on the lookout for Jews (he’s literally referred to as the “Jew Hunter”). One of Landa’s searches in the outskirts of France leads him to a Jewish French girl, Shoshana Dreyfus (played by the beautiful Melanie Laurent) – whose family is killed by Landa and his crew.
Simultaneously (but in a different part of Europe) Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift acts of retribution. And by retribution, he means Tarantino-style revenge (which translates to gore X 150).
