    TIFF Review: 'Top Five' Starring Chris Rock & Rosario Dawson

    "It's never just a movie," says Chris Rock's Andre Allen in "Top Five," and that sentiment definitely applies to the comedy veteran's latest directorial effort. While on the surface it's an incisive and playful look at celebrity, media and fame, it's also about the difficulty, fear and risk of stepp...

    Faux Real: Reality Shows Get Skewered by BET, Comedy Central and SpikeTV at the TCA Winter Press Tour

    Most reality shows are, to some extent, fake, frankensteined together in the editing room or herded along by producers if not outright staged. But a trend emerging from TCA is that of the mock unscripted series -- the reality parody that pulls together the snap zooms and the "next ons" and...

    Kate Hudson, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes & Many More Join Larry David's HBO Movie 'Clear History'

    Last month, the plot for Larry David's upcoming improvised comedy was revealed, ending what was an unusual amount of secrecy for the creator of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." At the time, the project still lacked a name and only had confirmed the casting of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and David himself....

    Christina Ricci, Brendan Gleeson & JB Smoove Join 'The Smurfs 2' For Some Reason

    Looks like some actors who should be and deserve to be doing much better things are going to buy themselves a nice vacation or perhaps put a down payment on a second or third house, as they've lined up roles in the inevitable "The Smurfs 2."

    Nicki Minaj Will Terrify Your Children By Voicing A Character In 'Ice Age: Continental Drift'

    Nick Frost, JB Smoove, Joy Behar, Heather Morris, Josh Gad, Alan Tudyk, Kunal Nayyar & Alain Chabat Also Join The CastHere's the deal with Nicki Minaj. We don't get it. Her whole cartoony/sexpot image combined with tepid musical output makes us wonder why she's as popular as is.

Regardless, Minaj voicing a character in an animated film? Yeah, it sort of makes sense even if her delivery may...

    'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Star J.B. Smoove Bags A Role In Sacha Baron Cohen's 'The Dictator'

But perhaps the biggest breakout seems to be the actor who's behind one of the most seminal supporting characters on the show: J.B. Smoove, who's played Leon Black on the last cou...
