I have a very soft spot in heart for ABC, the ultimate ’80s band in my mind. As a kid, I remember absolutely loving their video for the song “Poison Arrow.” It shows frontman Martin Fry lusting after a beautiful big-haired brunette, dripping in diamonds and fur, who eventually shrinks him and traps him under a martini glass. Well, apparently—the girl in the video is none other than restauranteur Lisa Vanderpump of “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.” Oh, how worlds collide. [Limelife] Keep reading »
Comic book fans seemed uniformly disappointed by the first image of Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Perhaps this new photo will set minds at ease. Sure, the cat suit might not be as shiny as usual, but in this shot it appears far closer to what we’d expected, complete with cat mask and ears. Anne has joked that she is subsisting on “kale and dust” to fit into this thing. Is it worth it? [ONTD] Keep reading »
Nearly everything can feel different if you simply change the music. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer to Nicholas Winding Refn’s new hyper-intense film “Drive,” starring Ryan Gosling. Only this time, instead of its electro-rock soundtrack, the trailer’s been set to Tom Cochrane’s “Life Is a Highway” and romantic tunes from Enrique Iglesias. Whatever, Gosling still looks goooood

“Right when ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.’ was beginning, [the show's creator] took my parents and me to a restaurant, sat us down, and said, ‘A career is like surfing. You paddle out and paddle out and get wet and hit by these waves. When you finally get out where you’re supposed to go, you have to sit on a surfboard for a long time, just waiting. If you’re really lucky, you’ll catch a wave, and it’ll be the most amazing feeling. But the key is that that wave will inevitably crash to the sand. Then what you have to do is paddle back out and get hit by a bunch of waves again. But trust that in the long term there will always be waves to catch.’ To a young family from New Mexico, you can imagine our reaction: ‘What the hell is surfing?’ But thinking back, it was a very impressive thing to hear as a kid and, as it turns out, absolutely accurate … It’s good to have a lot of once-in-a-lifetimes in your lifetime. If you get the chance to skydive, go skydiving. If you’re offered a part in a weird Shakespeare play in San Diego, slap on some tights and rock out some iambic pentameter. If you’re offered the opportunity to have a swastika painted on your ass, glitter on your nipples, and to simulate sex with a man and a woman behind a curtain, go for it… provided it’s ‘Cabaret’ on Broadway and not in some dude’s basement.”
—Neil Patrick Harris shares with Entertainment Weekly his advice for making it in Hollywood over and over again. But, I really think these are great words of wisdom for anyone in almost any field. I am appointing Neil as my life coach. I hope he takes checks. [EW] Keep reading »
Everyone loves a good villain. And ABC’s new series “Revenge” promises just that. The series features Emily Van Camp as Emily Thorne, a new girl in the Hamptons. But things are not what they seem. Emily has lived there before and has returned to exact vengeance on those who have wronged her in the past.
Among Emily’s targets is Victoria Grayson, a villain played deliciously by Madeleine Stowe. Victoria is the Hamptons’ richest and most powerful player, and nothing — not even her best friend — will stop her from getting what she wants.
Based on the tale “The Count Of Monte Cristo,” “Revenge” premiered Wednesday at 10/9 central on ABC.
