5 Things To Know About Romola Garai From “The Hour”

I could take or leave BBC America’s “The Hour,” about Brits who run a political news program in the 1950s. It’s a thinly-veiiled “Mad Men” knockoff with a bit of mystery swirled in.

Brad Pitt Fears Angelina Will Add Him To Her List of Suckers

We hate to say it, but Brad Pitt might be dealing with a little bit of karmic ass biting. The man who eventually left his wife Jennifer Aniston for his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie is said to be jealous of her on-screen chemistry with new co-star James McAvoy. Angelina is filming Wanted
