NFL Draft's Mecole Hardman, I Can Help Steelers Replace Antonio Brown!
Georgia stud Wr Mecole Hardman can be Antonio Brown's replacement in Pittsburgh, so says the NFL draft prospect himself ... who tells TMZ Sports, "I can be that guy!" Of course, the Steelers just lost A.B. after an offseason full of drama ... and now they've got a glaring hole at wideout heading into next month's NFL draft. Enter Hardman -- a superstar with the Bulldogs -- who says he'd have no problem if Pittsburgh picked him to be A.

“Moana” proves that Dwayne Johnson can truly do anything

It seems like I write this at least once or twice a year, but Disney is poised to have another big hit on their hands. They continually churn out enjoyable fare, especially with their animated musical offerings. On Wednesday, their latest hits in Moana, which very much feels like it’s a successor to Frozen. Featuring songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda and a winning bit of voice work from Dwayne Johnson, it’s poised to be a big deal during Thanksgiving. Family fare always has a leg up, and this will be no exception. It’s going to contend for awards, that’s for sure, but it will also make a mint at the box office first, and that never hurts. Audiences are in for a treat. The movie is essentially standard issue Disney princess stuff, though there’s a bit of tinkering with that premise. Young Moana (Auli’i Cravalho

Moana Review

Now – more then ever – maturing young girls need positive female heroes to idolize, and with that perspective in mind, Moana summons an epic adventure primed to bolster the independent pride of future “nasty women” everywhere. This should come as no shock – Disney has been nurturing strong-willed princesses since cartoons were invented (figure of speech) – but Moana‘s importance shouldn’t be shrugged off (nor is she a princess, she’d remark).

Lin-Manuel Miranda brings island spirit to drum-beating musical numbers that herald the exuberance of life’s unexpected journeys, pushing young minds and hearts to follow passion, not practicality. Audiences of all genders have yet another animated Disney dazzler to embrace here, but Moana speaks specifically to a gender that faces preconceived barriers, and with enough strength to break them down.

Auli’i Cravalho voices the hula-dancing Moana, daughter of Chief Tui (Temuera Morrison). It’s Moana’s destiny to

Snoop -- Steelers Killed My Buzz ... Ain't Been the Same Since Polamalu (Video)

  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_i59ce9ei"]] The Steelers broke Snoop Dogg's heart again -- and the rapper says it's all because his squad still hasn't been able to replace Troy Polamalu. Snoop vented about Pittsburgh's last second loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday -- and placed the blame on the Steelers' secondary. "Since Polamalu left, our DBs ... very, very skeptical." Troy retired after the 2014 season. The Steelers have since retired his #43 jersey. Read more

Paul Rudd's College Yearbook Photo Will Blow Your Mind

Paul Rudd's College Yearbook Photo Will Blow Your Mind
Thanks to redditor SmoothBread, the Internet now knows what Paul Rudd looked like in the 1980s. We have to say, not much has changed except for one thing...

Pics: Stars Who Switched Up Their Signature Looks

That hair!

This University of Kansas yearbook photo shows the movie star sporting a wild Troy Polamalu-like mane normally associated with lead singers of hair metal bands or scientists inventing the flux capacitor.

But actually we've seen him with this look before...

Ned from Our Idiot Brother might be closer to the real Paul Rudd than we thought.

Troy Polamalu haircut, Elizabeth Hurley breakup, and Scott Eastwood's hot bod

Get caught up on the news all your friends will be talking about at Sunday brunch with Zap2it's "Weekend Warmup."

Troy Polamalu will kick off the Veterans of Foreign Wars (Vfw) "Mane Event" Nov. 11 by hacking off his trademark locks to raise money for U.S. military vets. The Pittsburgh Steelers safety hasn't cut his hair in more than a decade. And that's not the only reason this haircut is such a big deal. He's got his money-making curls insured for $1 million.

Here she is ... Miss America 2014. A new beauty queen was crowned, but not without some major controversy. Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, takes the title from Miss America 2013 Mallory Hagan -- also a former Miss New York.

12 Stars Who’ve Insured Body Parts

When you're a celebrity, certain body parts may be a bit more valuable to you than they are to a normal person. So why not insure them? The Frisky rounds up a dozen stars who have done just that: Troy Polamalu : The NFL star's famous hair landed him an endorsement deal with Head & Shoulders, which took out a $1 million policy on the long locks. America Ferrera : When she snagged an endorsement deal with a tooth product company, it insured her smile for $10 million. Keith Richards : His middle finger is insured for $1.6 million.

NFL Sunday Football Online Live Stream: Redskins at Steelers

The mediocre 3-4 record of the Washington Redskins and 3-3 record of the Pittsburgh Steelers don't exactly scream an exciting Sunday NFL Football game. Normally they wouldn't, except these Redskins are directed down the field by Robert Griffin III and he's been one of the biggest highlights of the season thus far.

Griffin comes into today's game having almost engineered a road victory over the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants. The narrow 23-27 loss went down to the wire, and Griffin did engineer a go-ahead drive to connect with Santana Moss with only 1:32 left in the fourth quarter. As as happened often to the Redskins this season, their secondary got burned big and gave up the game-winning score.

In that game, Griffin threw for 258 yards and ran for another 89, not too shabby for a rookie playing at New York. He continues to lead the league with a

Calvin Johnson – Struck by the Madden Curse?

Last year, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson received 96 passes for 1,681 yards and scored 16 touchdowns, this in the eyes of game developer EA, earned him a place on the cover of this years’ version of Madden NFL. The Madden franchise has a bad history concerning the players they place on the cover of their game, a set of unfortunate mishaps dubbed ‘the Madden curse’.

The Madden curse is a superstition which many believe affects the career of those who go on the cover, either through injury or a shocking season performance. It started way back in 1999, when EA decided that in order to reach out to gamers in the Pal regions they would replace John Madden who lends his name to the brand, with a player. The player in this case was Garrison Hearst who had played a spectacular season prior to being on the cover, but during his next

NFL Thursday Night Football Free Live Stream: Steelers at Titans

Tonight's NFL Thursday Night Football primetime match on the NFL Network between the 2-2 Pittsburgh Steelers and 1-4 Tennessee Titans screams of mediocrity. The Steelers are coming off a close win at home versus Philly, but their road defense has been nothing short of atrocious thus far in this still young season. The Titans, meanwhile, have struggled to score and to make matters worse have given up more points than any other team in the league. Links to watch a live stream of tonight's game online are at the bottom of this post.

Ben Roethlisberger was the Steelers' savior last week in engineering a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter that put Philly away for good via a field goal in the closing minute of play. If you take away that drive, the Steelers only managed a touchdown and two field goals over the previous three quarters of play. Maybe

The Dark Knight Rises: Hines Ward Reveals He Was Scared During His Cameo

Along with fellow Steelers members Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu, Mike Wallace and former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, ex-football player Hines Ward was given a brief cameo as a member of the Gotham Rogues football team, who is seen in the trailer sprinting for a touchdown while the football field behind him collapses thanks to Bane. From Ward: I've run scared before but I really ran scared that day," Ward told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "They told me, 'Don't look back.' I felt the explosion when I was running. I had to wear earplugs. Usually, I'm smiling when I'm running, but that day I was actually screaming. The Dark Knight Rises is directed by Christopher Nolan(The Prestige, Inception) and stars Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hardy, and Anne Hathaway. The film will be unleashed upon audiences on the 20th of this month.

Tom Brady on his ever-changing hair and why he'll never enroll at the school of 'Hard Knocks'

Tom Brady on his ever-changing hair and why he'll never enroll at the school of 'Hard Knocks'
Football star Tom Brady has sung on Saturday Night Live, been immortalized on The Simpsons, and popped up on an episode of Entourage, so it shouldn’t have been a surprise when he delivered another funny performance in a recent FunnyOrDie video to promote Under Armour. Brady plays the comic straight man, just hoping to locate some gear at a California sporting goods store when the salesperson and some customers become fascinated by him — not by his stardom, but what they perceive as his thick Bah-ston accent. In fact, no one seems to recognize him as the Patriots Super Bowl quarterback,

The Best Baseball Team Ever Assembled From Non-Baseball Players

The San Diego Padres drafted a kind of random college quarterback, Toledo's Terrance Owens, with their final selection in the recent Mlb draft - even though Owens isn't a baseball player. Owens hasn't played the sport since his first year of high school, in fact.

He told the Padres thanks, but no thanks, but it got my mind spinning. Great American athletes are not flocking to the game of baseball like they have in the past. African Americans in particular are abandoning baseball at a young age in favor of basketball and football, and the number of blacks in baseball has plunged to post-integration lows. 

But I've always fantasized (and I mean that entirely non-sexually) about how awesome it would have been to see Allen Iverson on a ball diamond (he was a hell of a high school Qb an Db on the gridiron), and I've always thought that if Michael Vick weren't left-handed,

'Saturday Night Live' recap: Eli Manning plays dumb, Rihanna plays dirty, Sacha Baron Cohen and Martin Scorsese play along
I know close to nothing about sports (except when I throw a balled-up piece of paper into the trashcan and know that it’s customary to shout “Kobe!” while doing so). But one of the few things I do know is the name Eli Manning. After all, here’s an athlete who has managed one of the rarest of feats in pop culture: being so high-profile in the zeitgeist that not only does an athletics layman like myself know his name, but he gets to step onto the Grand Central set and host Saturday Night Live.

So how did the
