Howard Stern Defends Jimmy Fallon for Ruffling Trump’s Hair
Howard Stern opened up about a cancer scare, vented about an ill-fated interview with Robin Williams and defended Jimmy Fallon for ruffling Donald Trump’s hair during a lengthy Tonight Show interview. The radio host was on-hand Wednesday to promote his newly issued book, Howard Stern Comes Again, which blends career-highlight interviews with memoir-styled commentary.

Early in the 14-minute segment, Stern admitted that his near-brush with cancer inspired him to reflect on his life in written form.

“I thought I was supposed to live forever,” he joked. “That was the

Donnie Yen on How Kong Kong Action Cinema Can Reclaim Its Glory

Donnie Yen on How Kong Kong Action Cinema Can Reclaim Its Glory
Since taking up the mantle of Wing Chun grandmaster in Ip Man 4, Donnie Yen has become increasingly synonymous with the real-life martial arts legend, who famously trained Bruce Lee.

In the intervening years, Yen became a part of the Star Wars franchise, playing the fan-favorite blind warrior Chirrut Îmwe in spinoff Rogue One, and will be featured in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Mulan. But it has been the Ip Man franchise that brought him into hand-to-hand combat with Mike Tyson and secured him a place among hard-core kung fu aficionados as one of the great action superstars to come out ...

Lucifer's Rachael Harris Reacts to Episode 2's Big Reveal — and Linda's Hilarious Inability to Cope!
The following contains spoilers from Lucifer Season 4, Episode 2.

We shoulda sensed something was up when Dr. Linda suddenly started air boxing.

As witnessed in Season 4’s first two episodes, the shrink “is manic and has all of this energy, like, ‘I’m going to learn how to defend myself because all this s–t keeps happening to me,'” her portrayer, Rachael Harris, recalls. The unusual burst of hyperactivity “was sort of akin to Jeff Goldlum in The Fly.”

But midway through Episode 2 of Lucifer’s fourth season (now on Netflix), the Mike Tyson-channeling Linda was the one down for the count,

Jamie Foxx Is One Step Closer to Playing Mike Tyson in Upcoming Biopic

In a photo posted on Instagram, Ray star Jamie Foxx poses with Mike Tyson and teases a planned Mike Tyson Biopic. Using the hashtag #TheJourneyBegins, Foxx thanks Tyson for his trust in the photo's caption, saying that the movie is "one step closer" to production. Tyson himself responded to the post with a closed fist emoji, apparently just as eager to see the project come to life as Foxx. As of this time, no other information about the movie has yet been revealed by the award-winning actor.

Jamie Foxx has been talking about wanting to do a Mike Tyson movie for at least a decade. In 2009, he publicly stated he wanted to do the movie with Ray helmer Taylor Hackford directing.

‘Master Z: Ip Man Legacy’ Film Review: Michelle Yeoh and Dave Bautista Kick It in Gorgeous, Muddled Martial-Arts Tale

‘Master Z: Ip Man Legacy’ Film Review: Michelle Yeoh and Dave Bautista Kick It in Gorgeous, Muddled Martial-Arts Tale
The cinematic odyssey of Ip Man — the real-life master of Wing Chun and, famously, instructor of Bruce Lee — continues with “Master Z: Ip Man Legacy.” But don’t expect Donnie Yen to show up in this installment and don’t expect much in the way of historical fealty, narrative plausibility or serious examinations about human dignity or the ethics of kung fu.

Expect, instead, a spin-off about Ip Man’s rival from “Ip Man 3,” Cheung Tin Chi. After his secret defeat at the hands of Ip Man, Cheung Tin Chi became a mercenary — so briefly that it barely impacts the story. After retiring, he sets up a tiny grocery and tries to raise his son in peace, but a chance encounter with opium dealers leads to one giant fight sequence after another.

The story of “Master Z” is frustratingly muddled, and Cheung Tin Chi has very little to do with it.

Contemporary Chinese Cinema is a column devoted to exploring contemporary Chinese-language cinema primarily as it is revealed to us at North American multiplexes.Opening this week across North America is Master Z: Ip Man Legacy, the seventh Ip Man-related film to have been released since the first one appeared just over ten years ago, in December of 2008.

Inside the Charity Work of 50 Cent

There have been just as many negative things to say about 50 Cent as there have been positive for a while but it would seem that if you dig a little deeper there’s a lot more positive stuff that you might have missed. It’s true that he’s had some financial issues, as Annabel Murphy of The Sun wrote he had to sell the home he’d bought from Mike Tyson for a whopping loss. But thankfully a good part of that sale if not all of it went to charity, so as many woes as he might have in the financial

Joker Trailer Teases Unsettling Origin Story

Kirsten Howard John Saavedra Apr 3, 2019

The first teaser trailer for Todd Phillips’ Joker confirms that this will be a very different DC film.

Warner Bros.' forthcoming Joker origin tale has been a very weird project from the get-go, but that approach has served in its favor when it comes to audience expectation levels. The last two big-screen iterations of the Clown Prince of Crime were like chalk and cheese - Heath Ledger's phenomenal portrayal of the character in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight blew everyone away, whereas Jared Leto's tattooed Suicide Squad villain ...er, didn't.

The Hangover director Todd Phillips was certainly an interesting choice to helm the project, but he's been frustrated by the lack of accuracy in the coverage of his Joker solo outing so far, which he concedes is to be expected “when you set out to make an origin story about a

Jussie Smollett ‘Saturday Night Live’ Sketch Absolutely Roasts the ‘Empire’ Actor

Jussie Smollett ‘Saturday Night Live’ Sketch Absolutely Roasts the ‘Empire’ Actor
Jussie Smollett was doubly skewered last night, first by comedian Chris Rock at the NAACP Image Awards, and second by a brutal sketch on “Saturday Night Live.” The actor recently made headlines again when Chicago Pd announced all charges had been dropped against him after he alleged two men attacked him in a potential hate crime.

In a short scene tucked inside Weekend Update, the NBC sketch series turned a meeting of “Empire” executives into an absolute Smollett roast. The episode was hosted “Killing Eve” star Sandra Oh, and the Emmy winner was tightly wound as Smollett’s manager. She played off Chris Redd as a beleaguered-looking Smollett, Kenan Thompson as Lee Daniels, and Kate McKinnon’s Ego Nwodim and Mikey Day as Fox executives.

The sketch begins with the Fox executives attempting to fire him from “Empire,” when Smollett and his manager make their case. When he is late to the meeting,

‘Saturday Night Live’ Follows Up on Jussie Smollett Scandal (Watch)
Just days after the state charges were dropped against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett for filing a false police report after a vicious attack in Chicago, Ill., “Saturday Night Live” weighed in on the thesp.’s troubles.

Although Fox has stood behind their star, releasing a statement earlier this week that said “Jussie Smollett has always maintained his innocence and we are gratified that all charges against him have been dismissed,” the NBC late-night sketch comedy series had the team behind the show taking a difference stance: telling his manager (played by episode host Sandra Oh) that they no longer wanted to work with her client.

“Jussie Smollett was a victim,” Oh said, pleading to Thompson’s Lee Daniels that she had represented him during his entire career, and although he was two hours late to this meeting, she knew he had a valid reason. But her tune changed by the end of the sketch.

Best Casino-Inspired Movies Ever Created

There has been no shortage of casino based movies, with the setting providing a backdrop of bright lights, glitz and glamour. Maybe it also has something to do with the charisma of the people there or the thrill of the chase so to speak, all we know is that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

007

Ah yes the good old cult classic that has seen fans reveling in some of the most expensive action scenes ever created. Because James Bond has been around for nearly a century now, it’s no wonder they constantly have to replace the star.

Bond is a suave, handsome British secret agent who has a flair for woman, often finding himself in hot water over them, and no I don’t mean the Jacuzzi. Many famous faces have had the opportunity to be called Bond including the likes of Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan
