    Like I said last week, despite the criticism she got for "lowering the standards" of OWN, Oprah's interview with the Kardashians was a rating stunt and nothing that should be so horrible or shocking, since she has to do what she has to do to get people to watch OWN.

    Watch: Daniel Radcliffe Stars In One-Take Music Video For British Band Slow Club

    We're increasingly impressed by Daniel Radcliffe. It's not the easiest thing to escape from the shadow of a huge franchise but, while he's likely to be followed by jokes about quidditch for the rest of his life, the young actor has made a pretty good job of breaking out of Harry Potter, ...

    Jon Hamm Joining Larry David In Greg Mottola-Helmed Improv Comedy

    First Look At Angelina Jolie In Character As Disney's 'Maleficent'

    It took a little time, but the fairytale movie duck was broken a few weeks back when "Snow White And The Huntsman" proved to be a solid hit. More recent pictures based on fables and legends, like "Red Riding Hood" and "Mirror Mirror," had mostly underperformed, but SWATH proved that there's plenty o...

    One of the crucial aspects of this Friday's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" was seeing a fresh face in the lead role, allowing him to become the bloodsucker-loathing President.

    A smash hit in its native France, an arthouse sensation on this side of the ocean, and nominated for 9 Cesar awards, it's not a shock that The Weinstein Company (who distributed the original stateside) are eager to remake "Intouchables" for what they hope is an awards season contender....
