Everyone knows that Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt can dance, but no one suspected Broadway was also in the cards! The two talented actors are at the top of the list to play Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls, roles originally portrayed on the silver screen by Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando respectively. No news on who would play which part.
Gordon-Levitt has sung numerous times, and helps run the collaborative production company, hitRECord, but Tatum’s singing abilities are a complete mystery, and both Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson involve some serious musical chops! Both actors are in high demand however, so 20th Century Fox will have to move quickly if it wants both in the film.
Social media, fondly branded the poor man's therapy session, offers the perfect medium to vent one’s personal frustrations, usually matched with the much needed empathy and support of complete strangers. However, in recent days, it's extended its reach to a not-so-poor man in Kobe Bryant. Following a season ending surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered during the final minutes of a must-win game against the Golden State Warriors, Bryant immediately turned to Facebook to air his frustrations, disappointment, despair, and palpable anger toward the worst injury of his career. While the Lakers continued their playoff chase, eventually securing a seventh seed in the Western conference, Bryant allowed the world an uncharacteristic bird's eye view into his life, his recovery, and the hilarity spawned from the boredom of a brilliant NBA superstar.
Bradley Cooper recently admitted he still lives with his mother! The adorable actor explains in the latest issue of Details Magazine, that he lives with his mother, Gloria. Cooper explains that his relationship with his family is pretty tight-knit and his mom is no way living on an opposite compound or a guesthouse. She is right in the next room!
"But here’s the thing. She’s a cool chick. We can hang and she can roll with the punches," Cooper explained.
No longer will we hear Faith Hill's country twang on Sunday Night Football. The opening act for NBC's Sunday Night Football, for the last couple of years, Hill has been singing the theme song "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night" since 2007. The song was a country rock version of the tune "I Hate Myself for Loving You" originally by rock n' roll songstress, Joan Jett.
Hill tweeted, "Amazing 2 have been part of SNF—an honor. I've just let everyone know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open. Difficult decision. Kinda emotional. Love all you guys at SNF—I'll be watching!!!"
Fred Gaudelli, the producer of the Sunday telecast, tweeted his gratitude to Hill as well, "Great love and appreciation to @FaithHill for six great years of rocking the SNF open."
After a lack luster season from its New York counterparts, Stevie J and the rest of the Love and Hip Hop Atlanta cast return for Season 2 of the VH1 series. Picking up right where it left off, tangled in a web of love, sex, lies, and misplaced aggression, all 11 original cast members treated their audience to a night of pure entertainment.
From the continued love triangle between Stevie J, Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez, which looks to be materializing into a Marvel Comic-esque battle of good versus evil, Mommy Maid versus The Prostitute, to Momma Dee's deluded depiction of her son, Lil Scrappy as Atlanta’s Prince William while sipping red wine through a straw. Her extreme exhibition of undeniable tactlessness delivers a ratchet rawness uncommon to reality television.
Despite still cohabiting, rumors are again running rampant that Miley Cyrus and her fiancé, The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, have called off their engagement. Miley tweeted a photo on April 18th of her kissing her stylist on the cheek, ring finger visibly bare. The last time she took off her ring it was to have it resized, but she certainly can’t be having fit issues again…unless it’s not the ring that’s not fitting.
In what seemed like the longest, most dramatic celebrity divorce proceedings in recent memory, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries reached an agreement on their divorce. The process was riddled with finger-pointing and demands, with Humphries alleging that his 72-day marriage to Kim K. was a farce, perpetuated for the sake of monetary gain. He initially refused to sign any documents ending their union unless Kim admitted their marriage was a sham and they were granted an annulment, not a divorce. The wedding aired on the E! Network as a special episode of Kim's reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians. In April, Kris was a no-show for their mandatory divorce settlement conference with a judge. These were only a few events in the divorce debacle, which lasted for 536 days: seven times longer than the actual marriage itself!
Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber certainly seem cozy in spite of their relationship ending in January! Beiber ignited the rumor on Saturday by tweeting a picture of Selena leaning in, possibly about to plant a kiss on her former flame. She appears flirty and happy, fingers toying with her hair, while Justin stares blankly at the camera. He quickly deleted the shot, but this only reinforced stories that the two were spotted kissing in Oslo, Norway on April 18th. Justin is currently on tour in Norway, and it seems that Selena flew in just to visit him.
While in Atlanta filing the indie movie The Good Lie, Reese Witherspoon and her husband, CAA agent Jim Toth, were pulled over on suspicion of DUI. A police report states that the couple’s Ford Fusion was seen weaving in and out of the traffic lane. The official report states that Toth had red, droopy eyes and his breath smelled of alcohol. When Toth was given a sobriety test, Witherspoon hung out the window and questioned whether or not Trooper First Class J Pyland, the arresting officer, was actually a police officer.
