Minority Report’s Wilmer Valderrama Previews His Role in Fox’s New Sci-Fi Drama

Wilmer Valderrama, who stars in Fox’s new sci-fi drama Minority Report, is a name that resounds with audiences of different demographics, thanks to the many different projects he has been a part of during his career, from his breakout role as Fez in That ’70s Show to voicing the main character in the animated series Handy Manny to his most recent role as Carlos Madrigal in From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series. Now, though, Valderrama will be tackling an all-new character in Minority Report, playing Will Blake in Fox’s adaptation of Steven Spielberg’s 2002 film. This past Tuesday, I had the opportunity to speak with Valderrama during a conference call with other entertainment reporters, where he discussed Minority Report, his heritage, his career so far, and what’s still to come. Minority Report takes place in the year 2065 and therefore, as a futuristic show, showcases an array of advanced technology.

A Nickelodeon Cartoon Showed a Topless Woman's Breasts and Parents Are Upset

There’s a reason they call it the boob tube. (And it actually has nothing to do with this: The word “boob” is old-time slang for a foolish or stupid person, so the phrase was bashing TV and the people who watched it. Still...)

In a March 5 episode of the animated show Oggy and the Cockroaches called “(Un)happy Camper,” Nickelodeon showed a cartoon picture of a woman with big sunglasses, bigger lips, and the biggest naked boobs we’ve ever seen on a children’s show.

Parents were not pleased. Here’s the Nsfw screen capture:

'Big Hero 6' Star Damon Wayans Jr. Wanted to Be a Disney Animator

Fans of quality sitcoms know what a force Damon Wayans Jr. can be. He made a splash in the pilot for the Fox series "The New Girl," but had to leave when another show he appeared on, "Happy Endings" (for ABC) got picked up as well. "Happy Endings" ran on ABC for the next few years and a small, dedicated few (myself included) applauded it for being one of the best shows on television, an utterly surreal spin on the classic "Friends" tropes (at one point a character even drunkenly points out the similarities to "Friends"). When "Happy Endings" was unceremoniously canceled, Wayans returned to "The New Girl" as the character he played in the pilot. The universe was balancing itself.

As far as his big-screen outings go, Wayans is also making inroads. This past summer he starred in the raunchy R-rated comedy "Let's Be Cops," which ended up being a surprise smash.

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel to Childish Horrors, Part 1

Two things are certain: Everything is scarier when you are a kid, and kids make everything scarier. With these two facts in mind, I realized I have a couple of stories that you just might find enjoyable, and I want to share one with you in this Doctor Gash Tip of the Scalpel to Childish Horrors, Part 1.

This is a story that will really hit home for those of you who have children and have seen The Exorcist (and I’m sure many of you thought twice about the former after doing the latter). I certainly welcome the rest of you Dreadies to read and hopefully enjoy this story, but I think it'll really hit home with you parental veterans of The Exorcist.

Black Doctors See Hope In TV's 'Doc McStuffins'

Black Doctors See Hope In TV's 'Doc McStuffins'
Los Angeles — A pig-tailed girl whose favorite accessory is a pink stethoscope has become a symbol of pride and hope for black women in medicine and the daughters they want to inspire.

Doc McStuffins, the African-American title character of an animated TV series for children, dreams of becoming an M.D. and, for now, runs a cheerful home clinic for stuffed animals and dolls.

"I haven't lost a toy yet!" Doc exclaims as she hugs a blue dinosaur in need of attention.

For Dr. Myiesha Taylor, who watches Disney Channel's "Doc McStuffins" with her 4-year-old, Hana, the show sends a much-needed message to minority girls about how big their ambitions can be.

"It's so nice to see this child of color in a starring role, not just in the supporting cast. It's all about her," Taylor said. "And she's an aspiring intellectual professional, not a singer or dancer or athlete.

Valderrama: 'Minka Kelly Is An Old Friend'
TV star Wilmer Valderrama has played down rumours he's romancing actress Minka Kelly, insisting they're just good friends.

The former That '70s Show actor has been photographed out with Kelly on several occasions in recent weeks, and the pair was allegedly seen kissing and dancing together during a night out at West Hollywood's Greystone Manor Supperclub last weekend.

A source told UsMagazine.com, "They were kissing and grinding," adding, "I wouldn't say they're boyfriend and girlfriend, but he's started ignoring calls from some of his other girls."

But Valderrama, who split from singer/actress Demi Lovato in January, brushed off the reports during a Los Angeles radio interview with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday.

When asked about the love claims, Valderrama adopted his cartoon voice for his Disney Junior show Handy Manny and said, "Well, Minka Kelly and Wilmer Valderrama have been friends for a long time and that's all there is to it."

The actor, who has voiced the Hispanic handyman character since 2006, has also previously dated Mandy Moore and Lindsay Lohan. Kelly, the star of the failed TV revamp of Charlie's Angels, parted ways with baseball ace Derek Jeter last year.
