    Mad Men party y/y??

    When it came to casting the guest role of Broadway baby-turned-TV star Lyle West on NBC’s Smash, executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan didn’t have to look far. The real thing, Nick Jonas — currently the lead in their other big project, Broadway’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying — had already asked to cameo on the show. Jonas had been an actor on Broadway. He’d been a hit on TV. And he could definitely sing — a must for a musical drama chronicling the making of a tuner about Marilyn Monroe. EW caught up with Jonas to chat about tonight’s episode ofSmash, Broadway, and acting alongside Anjelica Huston.



    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Who is this Lyle West?
    NICK JONAS: Lyle is a really common character. He’s very precocious and he has a lot of confidence. Basically, he’s a child actor who has just come into a bunch of financial success from the television show that he’s on that’s gone into syndication. He knows all the people involved in the Marilyn workshop from his time as a theater actor as a young boy. So the director, Derek Wills [Jack Davenport], throws Lyle a birthday party where Anjelica Huston’s character tries to get him to invest in the show.

    So, just like you, he started as a kid on Broadway and then he became a TV star. Was that intentional?
    You know what, I really don’t know if it was or not. I know that his role was already in place when they asked me to be a part of it. They just said that there is this role that they were developing for a young guy to negotiate with Anjelica Huston. It’s very similar to my real journey and that’s fun. I definitely didn’t have to do much character research since I know what that’s like.

    Will you be singing?
    I sing a song when you enter the party. I’m singing Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet,” which was fun for me. I love that song and I think Michael Bublé is great. I’m also involved in a group number — an original number they do at the end of the episode. I jump on the guitar.

    That number — when the company decides on the spot to perform a song from the Marilyn musical at your party — seemed pretty complicated.
    It took a little while to film. I think it took about a full night to work that all out, because it is pretty elaborate. It’s ironic that the elaborate thing is the one that’s supposed to be impromptu.

    You share a particularly emotional scene at the end of the episode with Anjelica Huston.
    Yeah, it was pretty, pretty intense. I think Anjelica Huston is obviously one of the greatest actresses of all time and it was incredible to watch her work in that way. It was very inspiring. Megan [Hilty] and I were humbled to be part of that scene in the way that we were.

    Is Lyle going to be a hands-on financier? In other words, will you be back?
    You know, I haven’t really been told yet. I would be all for being on the show again, but no one has mentioned it yet. If there’s an opportunity, I’m there.

    Is there anything that occurs on the show that doesn’t happen behind-the-scenes on Broadway but you wish did?
    I’ve watched all the episodes so far and the brilliant thing they’ve done is really keep it close to the way Broadway actually works. It’s a great thing because I think that it’s really connecting with so many audiences — not just musical theater fans, but people who want to know how the whole thing works and are genuinely just interested in these different people’s lives and stories.

    For my final two questions, I want you to go with your gut. Which do you prefer, Broadway or TV?
    Ah, tough to say. I really enjoy both. There’s another element, though, that should be in there: recording music. It’s the biggest thing for me, really. That’s where I really got my start and out of those three passions, well, I’m going to be greedy and say I like all of them. It’s just a joy for me to be able to do them — especially on Smash where I get to do all three. It’s a really fun sort of collaboration.

    And lastly, whom would you rather end up playing Marilyn: Katharine McPhee or Megan Hilty?
    You know, I’ve been given a little insider information on that. So I have to stay silent and just say to everyone that doesn’t know, keep watching and that story gets really interesting.



    this is an excuse for a Smash post, tbqh. Love this show so much, not gonna lie.

    Wrath of the Titans, the sequel to 2010’s Clash of the Titans, is just over a month away from its release, and we’ve already seen a handful of trailers, posters, and images from the film in the past few months, most recently getting a new trailer for the second film just last week.

    We’ve now got a set of nineteen new images to share with you, courtesy of IMDb, featuring some of the impressive cast that includes the likes of Sam Worthington, Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson, and Danny Huston reprising their roles from the original, with Toby Kebbell, Rosamund Pike, Édgar Ramirez, and Bill Nighy joining them for this second time around.

    Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles) is behind the camera for this one, and though the first film may have got fairly panned by critics, it nonetheless took just short of $500m. at the box office, and the sequel could certainly do well, boosting its already impressive cast with some great new faces.

    'Game of Thrones' new art: 'The North Remembers'
    By JAMES HIBBERD

    HBO is starting to unveil its marketing art for season 2 of Game of Thrones. The network is rolling out a series of “fan ads” representing each of the major houses during the “War of Five Kings” — the name given to chaotic scrambling for power in the wake of King Robert Baratheon’s death. Here’s the first, featuring the sigil of House Stark. Looks like one big pelt (and for those who missed it, here’s the latest season 2 trailer):

    I still think it's too early for the whole "The North Remembers" thing, but it is relevant to stuff that happens this season. Oh, and remember that 16-minute Season 2 featurette we were supposed to get this Friday? Yeah, it's not happening. WiC.net confirmed with HBO after they took it off their schedule. :(

    While Spike Lee and the team behind "Oldboy" haven't yet found their leading lady, you gotta at least respect that they are going for some pretty solid talent. Rooney Mara was the first one to be offered the female lead in the film, before passing on it while Mia Wasikowska was also sought to join before the end of the year. Alas that didn't work out either, as yet another offer is going out, this time to rising "Martha Marcy May Marlene" star and recent Spirit Award nominee Elizabeth Olsen.

    The part is for Marie, an integral role that we can't really talk about too much without getting into spoilers, but it's a tough part, one that Olsen has proven she could take on and of everyone mentioned so far, would arguably be the best fit. Josh Brolin is still on board in the lead, but the project has also had a hard time nailing down a villain with Colin Firth and Clive Owen both circling but ultimately not comitting. In fact, the casting issues have forced the production to be pushed back to late summer or early fall -- so really, still a lot of time to cast this right (and we're glad they're not rushing this out of the gate).

    And while generally speaking this would be the kind of remake that would get under our skin, with Lee at the helm we're curious about what his energy and style would lend to it, and with screenwriter Mark Protosevic drawing on both the previous movie and the mangas, we're intrigued about how the story may change and shift in this version. But before we can find out more, we'll just have to wait and see how the casting plays out.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPicWe knew Kid Cudi had some rage issues — his nickname is Mr. Rager, after all — but someone really needs to give him a massage or a hug or something. Coinciding with the release of his new collaborative album with Dot Da Genius, WZRD, the rapper — who blew a gasket at the crowd at his album listening party — showed off his new, incredibly morbid tattoo of two slit wrists. “New Tat The old Scott is dead…slit wrists,” tweeted Cudder. You’d think that WZRD being #1 on iTunes would give him something to be smile about, but Cudi is spending the day furiously blasting his record label for not shipping out enough physical copies of his CD.

    “My weak ass label only shipped 55k physicals cuz they treated this like some indie side project tax right off,” tweeted Cudi. “So i apologize on behalf of my weak ass major label. And I apologize for the lack of promo, again, my weak ass major label. They tried to rush me thru this so i can just give em another MOTM, but guess what? Fuck that, next album is WZRD. MOTM3 on hold til 2014.”

    He continues: “Who mad??? not me and @DotDaGenius : ) So its def gonna be tough to find one in the stores guys, I’m sorry about that. I gotta go out and find one too, becuz my weak ass label never even gave us a copy of our own album. FAIL!!! Im lettin Universal Republic have it, fuck it. What they gon’ do, spank me?? hahahaha.”

    Considering musica fans’ purchasing behavior these days, we don’t think Cudi has much to worry about. When is the last time you actually headed out to a record store to buy an album on opening day?

    SO emo

    Paramount to Release 'SpongeBob' Movie in Late 2014

    UPDATED: Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman tells a Deutsche Bank investor conference that the film "will serve to start off or be one of our films that starts off our new animation effort."

    NEW YORK - Viacom's Paramount Pictures will release a SpongeBob SquarePants movie in late 2014 as it looks to kick its animation output into a higher gear, Viacom president and CEO Philippe Dauman said Tuesday.
    "We will be releasing a SpongeBob movie at the end of 2014, which will serve to start off or be one of our films that starts off our new animation effort," he told a Deutsche Bank media and telecom investor conference in Palm Beach, Fla. His appearance was webcast.


    Paramount announced the formation of its new animation unit last July with a target of one release starting in 2014. It has previously not mentioned a specific project. However, Paramount picked up rights to Penny Arcade's science fiction comic New Kid in June and is planning an adaptation of it. The studio tapped The Book of Eli writer Gary Whitta to pen the script and Mary Parent and Cale Boyter are producing via their Paramount-based Disruption Entertainment.

    Paramount has distributed animation fare from Jeffrey Katzenberg's DreamWorks Animation, but that deal is coming to an end at the close of this year. Dauman has repeatedly said that his company's studio would be fine without DWA, which has also weighed its options, including self-distributing its movies. But Dauman has not directly ruled out a potential renewal of the DWA deal.
    Viacom released a SpongeBob film several years ago, but back then, Nickelodeon did not have as much of a presence around the world, Dauman said Tuesday in touting the outlook for the new feature.

    The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie hit the silver screen late in 2004 and grossed $85.4 million domestically and $54.7 million abroad, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. The film saw SpongeBob take leave from the town of Bikini Bottom to track down King Neptune's stolen crown.

    Paramount did not provide additional deals on the new SpongeBob film.

    Dauman also once again said that the Paramount animation productions will be a new opportunity for his company as they will each cost less than $100 million, and the animation unit will be only 30 to 40 people strong, allowing for good financial returns. Thanks to modern technology, the films still look "great" despite the lower cost, he said. He also lauded his studio team for winning an animation Oscar for Rango, the studio's first fully-owned CGI effort. "We're very proud of that," he said.

    David Stainton, the head of Paramount's animation effort, resigned abruptly earlier in February. That has left Paramount Motion Picture Group president Adam Goodman in charge.

    As Sherlock Holmes, he has had more than his fair share of adventures. But Benedict Cumberbatch may now be learning that real life can be even stranger than fiction.


    The actor has struck up a ‘very close’ friendship with Lydia Hearst, daughter of notorious kidnap victim and bank robber Patty Hearst. Cumberbatch, 35, has been seen at a number of Hollywood parties with the  27-year-old model over the past month. The pair were seated together at the 20th annual Elton John Aids Foundation Oscars Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday night, where one onlooker said they ‘only had eyes for each other’. And perhaps it’s no wonder the British actor is captivated by Miss Hearst, given that her family background is more dramatic than many film scripts. 

    Her great-grandfather was William Randolph Hearst, the newspaper magnate said to have inspired the megalomaniac central character in Citizen Kane. Her mother was an apolitical 19-year-old American heiress when she was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army, a Left-wing guerilla group, in 1974. Her case grew even stranger when, during her captivity, she joined the SLA, denounced her former life, took the name Tania and carried out an armed robbery on a bank in San Francisco with other group members. She was arrested the following year and during her trial it was claimed that she had developed Stockholm syndrome, the condition in which hostages begin to identify with their captors in order to make sense of what is happening to them.

    Patty was originally sentenced to 35 years in prison, but that was later reduced to seven and she served less than two before President Jimmy Carter cut her sentence further and she was released. She was granted a full presidential pardon by President Bill Clinton in his last official act before leaving office. Her extraordinary tale has spawned countless books and movies, including the 1988 film Patty Hearst, based on her autobiography and starring Natasha Richardson. Following her release from prison, Patty married her bodyguard, Bernard Shaw. Mr Shaw is now the head of security for the Hearst Corporation, while Patty, 58, has dabbled in acting. The couple have two daughters, Gillian, now 29, and Lydia.
    Lydia, who uses the surname Hearst in her professional life but was born Hearst-Shaw, was spotted with Cumberbatch last month at a Vanity Fair party at Hollywood restaurant Cecconi’s. The pair arrived and left together and she happily posed for pictures with Cumberbatch’s arm wrapped around her. 

    Cumberbatch is being courted by Hollywood after appearing in Oscar-nominated hits Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and War Horse. He is currently in the U.S. to film the Star Trek sequel, in which he plays a ‘baddie’. He also recently finished shooting Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit, in which  he will voice both dragon Smaug and villain Necromancer. Martin Freeman, his co-star in BBC1’s Sherlock, has the title role.

    Cumberbatch was in a relationship with actress Olivia Poulet, whom  he met at Manchester University,  for a decade, but the couple split up almost a year ago. Last month, his half-sister Tracy Peacock said that he struggled to find a girlfriend because he was too clever. The 53-year-old, who has the same mother – actress Wanda Ventham – as the half-brother she calls Ben revealed: ‘You would have to be a pretty smart cookie to keep up with him. I think that is why possibly he has trouble with girlfriends.’ Miss Peacock, a picture frame restorer, went on: ‘He is such a lot like Sherlock – he is quick-thinking like him, but not harsh. ‘He’s incredibly well read. In comparison to some he is quite an intellectual.’ But she added that unlike his loner alter-ego in the detective series, Cumberbatch is keen to get married and start a family.

    He had a brief romance with fashion designer Anna Jones last year and his sister said: ‘One of his regrets is that he hasn’t found someone to settle down with. ‘I think they would have to be someone not in the acting profession. Someone who was happy to hold the fort while he went off and pursued his career.’ 

    Last night, a spokesman for Cumberbatch confirmed he was ‘very close’ friends with Miss Hearst, adding: ‘They have been friends a while now, but to say they are dating is probably too strong.’

  • 02/28/12--19:44: My Crazy Obsession: TLC


  • Pat and Joe Prosey know there will be some folks watching TLC’s upcoming edition of “My Crazy Obsession,” featuring their collection of Cabbage Patch dolls, and think the couple is totally bonkers.


    And not in a good way.


    It’s not that they’ve spent a ton of money amassing more than 5,000 of the dolls that will make folks say they’re weird — it’s the couple’s
    insistence on carrying one, named Kevin, everywhere they go.


    “I can see where a lot of people think we’re not quite right,” Pat Prosey says. “You could even say our daughter thinks we’re out there.”


    Sure enough, in the edition of “My Crazy Obsession” to air March 7 at 10 p.m., daughter Vicki notes that she refuses to refer to Kevin as a kid or a brother.


    The Maryland couple talk to Kevin as if he’s real, and walk around talking to others as if Kevin is a child, not the invention of a toymaker.


    In one scene, they go into a gift shop where Joe, carrying Kevin, talks to the shop worker through Kevin. The woman says to the camera that her doll-carrying customers are usually in grade school.


    “For every person who makes a comment like she does, there are 10 people who make a positive comment,” declares Pat.


    The couple began collecting the dolls 27 years ago. Over time, they collected so many Cabbage Patch creatures that they had to build a separate 6,000-square-foot home just to house the collection. It costs upwards of $1,000 a month just to keep the dolls in a climate-controlled world.


    Think twice about calling the Proseys nutso, because they’re not alone.


    In one scene, Joe, a retired shipyard manager, invites other collectors to visit — along with their “kids” — and he sets up an amusement park where the dolls can play.


    “We have a roof over our head. We have food. We don’t owe any money. It could be worse,” says Pat, who worked as a lab researcher. “We could be doing other things with our money.


    “What about people who collect artwork,” Pat says. “Nobody thinks they’re weird. This happens to be our collection. I think it’s crazy to spend a couple of million dollars on jewelry or art.”


    Carrying Kevin around all the time actually started as a fluke, says Joe. Years ago they were meeting friends to go waterskiing. He found a pint-sized wetsuit, got a small boat, and dragged Kevin along on the trip.


    He’s been with them ever since.


    “Somebody always has something to say, whether good or bad, about Cabbage Patch kids,” observes Joe.


    Fellow Cabbage Patch collectors understand their connection to Kevin. On holidays, the “kids” send cards to each other.


    “It’s a unique little fantasy world,” he says. “It’s good, clean fun.”


    Where the collection goes — or grows — down the road is a big question for the retired couple.


    “We have wrestled with the idea of what will happen to the collection when we’re gone,” Pat says. “We have it right now in our wills that the collection will be split between the Ronald McDonald House and St. Judes [Children’s Hospital].”

    And Kevin?

    “If Vicki did not want to take him, he would go with the rest of the collection,” Pat says. “No matter what she says about the kids or our collection, I kind of think that would be the one memento she’d want to hold onto.”
