    "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" is getting the crossover treatment again in one of its upcoming "Uprising" episodes. To tie into the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," at least one episode of the ABC series will be related to the plot of the film. "If anyone sees a trailer for 'Captain America,' you'll notice that SHIELD is a huge part of what is happening in the movie, just by all the talk of SHIELD and all the SHIELD logos everywhere, so definitely there's a crossover of things happening," series star Chloe Bennet tells Zap2it. "I can't tell you how much, but I can tell you that it is insane."

    She continues, "It will heavily affect our characters, I think. Everyone, definitely go see 'Captain America 2' and then you're going to definitely want to watch our show before and after."
    Beyond the big "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" crossover, fans are getting treated to an episode centered on Jaimie Alexander's "Thor" character, Lady Sif, as well as more appearances by Bill Paxton's Agent John Garrett.

    "Jaimie Alexander is so sweet and lovely and she is so talented and beautiful, so it was great having her on set. Bill Paxton is the best human live, obviously. He is just so much fun," Bennet says of the guest stars. "Sometimes we get nervous because we're such a tight-knit group of friends, just ourselves, so when people come on we get nervous. But when they're awesome, it's so great."

    With eight episodes left in Season 1, expect some more familiar faces to pop up as well. Bennet says at least one actor who's going to be on the show had her go full fangirl. "The person walked into the trailer and I [screamed] and I started freaking out and I jumped on the person, and I didn't know them and then I was like, 'I saw you driving once,' and then that person got a little weirded out. The person is awesome, but I cannot tell you who it is," she says. "Our fans particularly will like a certain guest star that is coming up soon."


    guesses on what familiar face will show up?

    Joanna has cleared the air about the air down there. The Bravo star appeared on Access Hollywood Live where she slammed a claim from fellow Brandi concerning her hygiene. Brandi claimed that Joanna broke up the marriage of Yolanda and her ex-husband Mohamed.

    “I’ve know the guy for 10 years, he’s a dear friend of mine. I’ve never hooked up with him. I’ve never broke up a marriage,” Joanna, who was promoting her Angels for Animal Rescue, told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover when asked about Brandi’s home-wrecking claim.

    “I had a boyfriend at the time and he was separated from Yolanda,” she explained. “I would love to get face to face with her and ask, ‘What is your problem with me?’”

    On Watch What Happens Live, Brandi tossed out another claim that had host Andy Cohen squirming and laughing. “Well, Mohamed did tell me that her pussy smelled,” Brandi said at the time, in response to a Tweet from Joanna about why her marriage to Eddie Cibrian didn’t last.

    Joanna slammed that claim. “Then she was saying that my junk stinks,” she said of Brandi. “Do you smell anything?” she continued, fanning the air away from her body towards Billy and Kit. “That’s going low, but that speaks volumes of her.” Adding, “Everybody thinks I stink now.”

    Joanna also addressed rumors that she could be jumping from the Miami cast to the Beverly Hills show. “If the opportunity came, I am bi-costal,” she teased.

    Will Teresa Go to Jail for Guilty Plea?

    The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband, Joe Giudice, are set to appear in court on July 8 for sentencing. They face possible jail time and the prospect of splitting up their family.

    "Teresa's plan is to explain to the court both how she ended up in this mess to begin with as well as how she has made a life for herself and the girls that will see them through it," her lawyer Henry Klingeman tells PEOPLE in a statement.

    While legal experts say judges can stick to the recommended guidelines for jail time (in her case, 21- 27 months), Teresa's lawyer says, "We have the right to ask for probation and we are going to."

    "Her hope is the judge will weigh wrongdoing against many wonderful accomplishments to justify a fair sentence," Klingeman continues. "We will be asking for a sentence that punishes the wrongdoing, but allows Teresa and the girls to have an optimistic future. As for specifics, we will spend the time between now and sentencing gathering material that will go into a written brief to be filed with the court as well as a presentation at the sentencing hearing itself."

    Bankruptcy expert Lee M. Perlman, Esq. says the final decision is based on a complicated formula.

    "The federal sentencing guidelines are going to govern specifically how the judge is going to decide here," says Perlman. "There are two factors: the criminal history in terms of the criminal sentencing guidelines and the conduct associated with the offense. It's typically advisory and judges are free to depart from that, but federal sentencing guidelines are complex."

    Marlo Apologizes For Bad-Mouthing Nene!

    After weeks of waging war against her former friend, Nene Leakes, Marlo Hampton is changing her tune. The Real Housewives of Atlanta regular took to her blog to apologize to fans for her bad behavior and extend an olive branch to her new nemesis.

    “Whether I want to be or not, I am a role model to my glam it up girls, nieces, goddaughters and other young women who are watching and imitating my behavior,” she wrote in her blog.

    “I need to do better. I can’t promise you I’ll turn the other cheek if I’m slapped, (don’t suggest anyone try me, I’m not there yet).”

    She also took time to apologize to everyone involved in the recent arguments.

    “To all the RHOA/Bridesmaids I have offended: Phaedra, Kandi, Kim, Sheree, Diana, Pat and NeNe, I apologize,” she said.

    “We may never be friends or see eye to eye on anything, (and I’m cool with that!) however, I don’t need to tear you down to build myself up. I know who I am–The Diva, Marlo Patrice Hampton and I am the spotlight, but so are you. Let’s all bask in it.”

    For the most part, Marlo seems ashamed to be part of the problem.

    “I apologize for my part in this shameful drama that reinforces stereotypes about who we are as black women. And pray that one day we’ll realize nobody wins when even one of us loses.”

    Tweet with Robyn Wright and Kevin Spacey
    The House of Cards official Twitter account tweeted this earlier today:


    House of Cards President Michel Gill Talks the Evil of Frank Underwood

    It's not easy going up against Frank Underwood.

    As the newly minted Vice President on Netflix's House of Cards, Underwood (played by Kevin Spacey) is the worst kind of political shark – he has to keep moving upward, or else he dies. In the second season, Underwood's main target is his own commander in chief, Garrett Walker, played by Broadway veteran Michel Gill. A mild-mannered pushover, Walker spends the season caught in the middle of a political war between Underwood and his longtime mentor, energy titan Raymond Tusk ...

    … until the two men eventually team up and force him to resign from office, leaving Underwood the most powerful man in the world. It's an ignominious end for any pol, made doubly ironic by the fact that Walker was one of the few House of Cards operatives to show any sign of a conscience.

    We spoke to Gill about playing the president, how House of Cards is like Shakespeare, and why viewers might be a little too tough on his character.

    Let's start with the big question of the season: Was Walker a bad president, or was he just caught in a bad situation?

    It's very hard to watch this show and handle Frank Underwood. He's crossed a line. We immediately think back to our own political system and think, "Could this really happen? How can the president be so gullible?" If you flash back to the 1600s, when they were sitting watching Richard III, you know they were thinking the same thing: "How can anybody get away with this stuff?" But today, we see it and we go with it. We're not so deeply enmeshed with the political system of the time.

    This is a tragedy about a highly sophisticated villain. You've got to realize, at every level of humanity, people are easily manipulated. Presidents have so much advice coming to them all the time. You're watching Walker take Tusk's advice, or Underwood's advice and you think "Oh God!" In my reality, he has a lot of advisors coming in and out – and he makes a big mistake in letting his sources of influence cloud his judgement.

    He was vulnerable because of his relationship with Tusk?

    He fell into this extraordinary thing, this battle between Tusk and Underwood, and he had to make a choice. This is where things got on shaky ground: They're artful manipulators. He's a husband and a father, and there's weakness there. That's where they nailed him.

    A lot of critiques of the second season wonder how he ever got elected in the first place.

    All I have to say is, why would Othello be general? Why would Duncan be king? Why would all these people be higher than Richard III? Because Richard III's the guy.

    It's easier to play that in a monarchy. Those guys are king because their dad was king.

    We do not have the opportunity to see how Walker got elected. But the fact is, he is a consummate politician, he does have strong ideas, but we've put him in a situation where he's being manipulated. If you look at Othello being completely distorted, psychologically and emotionally by Iago, it's frustrating to the audience. But you're still on pins and needles the whole time.

    Was it hard playing Walker's weaknesses, while still keeping that presidential gravitas?

    It's hard to play the president. When you look at people playing CEOs, generals, congressmen, you can get away with being faceless. You cannot get away with that playing the president. That recognition, that connection to secrets and power: It's very hard for an actor to play that. You have to have Kevin [react to me as] president, and the woman who plays my chief of staff play [react to me as] president, and the Oval Office set [react to me as] president. You have to rely on those sources, so that you can actually sit and make the choices that need to be made.

    What was your favorite scene to play?

    One of my favorite scenes to play was the one where I bring in the punching bag, and I have Frank come in. It really made me work my weight and get under his skin. Regardless of the actual scene, I also just enjoyed when my wife [Jayne Atkinson, who plays the secretary of state] was on set. We'd be sitting in the cabinet meeting and just before they'd call action, we'd look over and go, "This is kind of fun."

    You and your wife, alongside the rest of the cast, have a background in theater. What does that add to the show?

    Because this is a very Shakespearean tale, because there is a lot of language involved, Kevin was interested in people with a lot of experience in that. [Theater] helps with the language, and the understanding of what we are imposing on a realistic political system. Buckingham and Banquo – all these characters are steeped in that.

    Now that Frank's president, is there anyone in the cast who could be a real threat to him? He has skated by pretty easily so far.

    I think Frank is his own worst enemy. With this great power hunger, one undermines one's self. Now, there are formidable characters who could take him down – I think Claire matches quite well – but I think there's no doubt, however long this show goes, it's about his rise and fall.

    What kind of president do you think Frank will be?

    What kind of president do you think he will be?

    It's hard, because he wants power, but the audience thinks: Now what?

    I think he was in a better position before. The biggest frustration about being president is walking into the office and realizing that everything is much different than it really appears. You realize the lack of power you have. Frank's issue is going to be how he deals with things he can't get.

    What's your dream post-presidential career for Walker?

    I think he'd get into global initiatives, like Clinton. He's going to have a very strong career in bettering the world in all kinds of ways. But I can't imagine he would just walk away without having some deep issues with the way things went down.

    Let's close with some presidential fan fiction: What would happen if Frank Underwood was on The West Wing as Jed Bartlett's vice president?

    Bartlett's down. That's the wonderful thing about a villain. There's nobody he cannot take down. It depends on the personality, and what side of him Frank's chipping away at, but nobody's safe, everybody's down. It's just a matter of how.

    Despite 12 Years a Slave's very serious subject matter—steeped in the most inglorious era of our country's history—and all the important conversations about race that have taken place leading up to the film's big win at this year's Academy Awards, white people still feel super comfortable making stupid jokes and puns about the movie that are glaringly racist.

    It's not like we expect cultural sensitivity from The Opie & Anthony Show host Anthony Cumia. He's a shock jock, so the most that we can expect is that he has both a particular skill set and a face for radio. That being said, his "joke" was so egregiously racist in that Gabourey Sidibe was not in 12 Years a Slave, so the premise here (beyond mocking the way she looks) is: haha black people.

    You sort of have to be familiar with the show The Bachelor in order to "get" actor Jason Biggs' tweet. Cassandra Ferguson, a contestant on the show's current season, was an NBA dancer and she has a child with Rodney Stuckey who plays for the Detroit Pistons. So it would seem that Biggs was making a joke about how she's so into black dudes—any black dudes—that she is brought to the point of arousal just looking at them, even if they are being beaten or tortured or whatever. But we're tempted to give Biggs a pass on this one as we seriously doubt that he has any knowledge of female arousal or what it takes to make a woman wet.

    Chelsea Handler took a lot of heat for her Oscar coverage, which consisted of her tweeting one-liners from Huffington Post's Twitter account. Among her more offensive remarks were a series of Angelina Jolie adoption jokes in reference to non-white presenters and winners (one of which targeted Lupita Nyong'o). But it was her tweet about Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave, which managed to be at once self-promotional and self-destructive, that took the award in achievement in Twitter racism.

    Then of course, there were a series of headlines from actual, legitimate news organizations that meant well but did worse with inappropriate puns.

    We'll see a new side to Cruise in high concept sci-fi, according to director Doug Liman.
    Speaking at a footage presentation for the film, he said that Cruise’s character would be funny and cowardly.

    “This is a Tom Cruise you haven’t seen before,” he said. “He’s a coward throughout the movie – he does this amazing squeal. I didn’t know Tom would be this funny.”

    Cruise plays Lt. Col. William "Bill" Cage, a marketing manager forced to fight a hostile alien race known as mimics.

    When we first see him he has no combat experience and is killed within minutes. He then wakes up at the start of the day, realising he is caught in a time loop and forced to fight the same battle again and again. He’s helped by Emily Blunt’s veteran soldier Rita Vrataski, who has also experienced the time loop.

    “If you hate Tom Cruise go and see this,” joked Liman, “because he dies 250 times during the movie”.

    From the 15 minutes of footage we saw, the film was as funny as Liman suggested, with the weasel-y Cruise getting plenty of laughs. The premise feels like ‘Groundhog Day’ crossed with ‘Starship Troopers’, and has scope for plenty of time-travelling related twists.

    The ‘Bourne Identity’ and ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’ helmer said such high concept sci-fi fare was a rarity for a big budget studio project.

    ‘It’s wholly original. People expect me to break to the mould. There was no pressure to make a ‘studio' film.”

    Liman said they wanted to make a film that “appeals to Tom’s mainstream audience, but means I can also hold my head up high to my artsy friends in Brooklyn”.

    He added that some of his ideas for a ‘Jumper’ sequel made their way into his new film.

    “I did not get [‘Jumper’] quite right, but I’m a quick learner and have lots of ideas for sequels. A lot of what I learned from ‘Jumper’ is in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’, but it’s an arena I’d like to return to."

    ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ is released in the UK on 30 May.US release on June 6, 2014.

    Not even a 5-year-old boy with cancer could persuade egotistical actor Andrew Garfield to be a presenter at the Academy Awards.
    The “Spider-Man” star was supposed to take the stage Sunday with Miles Scott, who has come to be known as “Batkid” after the city of San Francisco let him play superhero there.

    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences had arranged with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to further make Miles’ dreams come true.

    “The academy was going to make him an official superhero during the Oscar ceremony. Andrew Garfield was going to appoint him ‘Batkid.’ But, in the middle of the dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn’t like his lines,” said a well-placed source.

    “Garfield refused to go by the script. He came up with his own lines. The producers felt that Garfield’s [rewrites] were not appropriate. Garfield had a tantrum. He stormed off. Miles and his family, who were at the rehearsal, were devastated.”

    The producers decided to cut the superhero initiation, but they paid for Miles to go to Disneyland.

    “Garfield was such a spoiled brat that he didn’t even want to be a presenter,” said my source. The academy had to call “Captain America” star Chris Evans to sub at the last minute.

    Garfield’s agent at CAA didn’t get back to me.


    The Batkid thing would've been super ott and cringey, but IF this is true, Andrew is a huge asshole.

    ETA, Andrew definitely WAS confirmed to be a part of this. But no one knows why it was cut/why he didn't show up. And Page Six is usually pretty reliable.

And she's unfortunately right. Watch below!

    Oculus is directed by Mike Flanagan, (Makebelieve, Still Life and Absentia) and written by Mike Flanagan & Jeff Howard, based on the short film of the same name.

Karen Gillan ("Doctor Who", Guardians of the Galaxy), Brenton Thwaites (The Signal), Katee Sackhoff (Riddick, "Battlestar Galactica"), Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan Ewald star in the film Relativity Media sends to theaters on April 11th.

    Never one to shy away from controversy, The CW is making a bold move with Thursday's (March 6) episode of "Reign."

    In what's likely a network TV first, the network will release two versions of the episode, "The Consummation," Entertainment Weekly reports. Viewers who tune in on their TVs will see a cut that meets broadcast content standards, while an uncensored "too hot for TV" cut will be available to stream exclusively online.

    Where do the differences between the two versions lie? Why, in the editing of a pair of sex scenes, of course.

    The experimental move marks the first time a broadcaster has released two versions of the same episode during the same week, with one containing the content that was deemed inappropriate by the network's standards department.

    A spokesperson for the network wouldn't expound on what exactly happens in the pertinent scenes, but notes that the network isn't simply adding R-rated content. Rather, they say they're offering "a more sexually intense edit of the existing program." Of the two scenes which bookend the episode, the one nearing the end involved Mary (Adelaide Kane), who will choose between Bash (Torrance Coombs) and Francis (Toby Regbo) in the episode.

    The edited version of "The Consummation" will air Thursday, March 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, while the unedited cut will be posted to the network's website on Friday morning.


    who watched the ep? pls spoil me!!!

    The 39-year-old actor was due to star in the movie adaptation, but will now no longer take the leading role, reported Digital Spy.

    The Deep Blue Good-By is based on the book by John D MacDonald. The story centres on Travis McGee, a beach person who gets into misadventures during his salvage consultant jobs.

    The reason behind Leonardo not starring in the film has not been disclosed yet.

    Leonardo again missed out on a Best Actor prize at the Oscars, losing to Matthew McConaughey and causing Twitter to trend "Poor Leo".

    Ireland Baldwin and her longtime boyfriend Slater Trout have parted ways.

    E! News has exclusively learned from the 18-year-old beauty herself that she is no longer in a relationship with her surfing beau.

    So what was the main cause for the breakup?

    "I am focusing on work and school now," she explained when asked how the big decision came about.

    The two began dating back in 2013 and had been very public about their affection for one another on their social media accounts in the past.

    Last May, the model gushed about Trout to People magazine, explaining, "I would say he is my best friend. We have our moments but that's rare. We can act stupid in public, private or wherever and we are always laughing."

    But now it seems as though Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's daughter is ready for a fresh new start.

    Perhaps that explains her latest makeover?!

    Baldwin debuted her newly-dyed purple hair on her Instagram yesterday morning.

    It turns out that she asked Justin Andersson, a colorist at the Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills, to transform her bleached blond locks.

    "I just really wanted to go lavender and it's going to fade out," Baldwin told E! News. "I wanted change! I love my platinum hair and that's who I am, but this is fun. Why not? It's temporary and fun."

    MIAMI — The deposition of troubled pop star Justin Bieber in a lawsuit filed in Miami-Dade County ended about 4 p.m., and sources are telling me Bieber’s behavior during the six-hour ordeal was odd at best.
    “The guy proved today he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed,” one source familiar with the court proceeding said.

    Bieber got so angry that he attempted to walk out and risk the wrath of a judge — but he was held back by his five lawyers.
    Why was he ticked off?
    Some questions focused on his failed relationship with singer/actress Selena Gomez, a sore point for Bieber.
    Later, Bieber appeared to fall asleep and claimed he couldn’t remember the names of the members of his entourage, or whether his bodyguards even worked for him or someone else
    The ultimate humiliation: Bieber faced questions, under oath, about whether he took legal or illegal drugs 24 hours before the hearings, or whether he drank alcohol within 12 hours of the hearing.
    He answered “no!’ to those questions.
    Bieber, 20, spent most of the day in the conference room of famed criminal defense lawyer Roy Black‘s law firm. Black reps the singer in his DUI case but sat in on the civil court deposition.
    Today’s grilling by Aventura legal eagle Mark DiCowden was about a lawsuit filed against Bieber in June by Miami Beach paparazzo Jeffery Binion.
    Binion wants millions in punitive damages because, he claims, Bieber and his bodyguards behaved like thugs towards him outside the Hit Factory recording studio in North Miami.
    One source described Bieber has having “selective amnesia” during today’s questioning.
    Question: Do you remember being in Australia in November?
    Bieber: I don’t know if I ever was in Australia.
    Question: How about Seoul, South Korea?
    Bieber: I don’t remember.
    Question: Do you remember being at the Hit Factory in North Miami in June?
    Bieber: I don’t remember being in Miami in June.
    Question: How many managers to you have?
    Bieber: Oh, I might have 100 managers.
    Question: What are their names?
    Bieber: I don’t really know.
    The singer of Baby and Boyfriend took frequent breaks throughout the session, sometimes every 15 minutes.
    At times, I’m told Bieber looked like a deer in the headlights.
    At others, he appeared to fall asleep.
    “He denied being asleep,” someone familiar with the deposition said. “He said something about being frustrated with the questions and trying to focus.”
    I’m told Bieber did complain about the court-mandated deposition being “unfair” to him.

    The first teaser for Mad Men's seventh season has arrived, and in classic form, the clip manages to divulge pretty much nothing about what's to come while still being the most engrossing thing you'll watch all day. In 15 seconds you see Don Draper getting off a plane in slow motion while putting on a hat. It's awesome. The clip was originally set to a remixed version of "Que Sera, Sera," though it's since been changed to an optimistic, ambient drone.

    The trailer follows a a set of images that teased the upcoming season while, again, providing no information or context about where the show will pick up after Don hit rock bottom at the end of the sixth season. Sure, it tells us Don will be hanging out in front of the Algonquin Hotel in New York City at one point, but who knows if that means he's talking to a client because he got his job at Sterling Cooper and Partners back, or if he's seeing a new mistress, or if he's waiting for a taxi to take him to the airport so he can relocate to California – it sure did look nice and sunny in that teaser clip.

    Which just means we'll have to wait until Mad Men returns on Sunday, April 13th at 10 p.m. EST. Like Breaking Bad, the show will have its final season split into two seven-episode halves, with the final set, dubbed "The End of an Era," scheduled to air next year.

    "We plan to take advantage of this chance to have a more elaborate story told in two parts, which can resonate a little bit longer in the minds of our audience," show creator Matthew Weiner said of the split last September. "The writers, cast and other artists welcome this unique manner of ending this unique experience."

    As the clock crept close to midnight on Sunday night, Cate Blanchett and Matthew McConaughey were each awarded shiny gold men. And, according to a study reported by Time, those two—and the rest of the 2014 Oscars class—have more to be happy about than winning alone.

    Researchers from the University of Toronto observed 1,649 Oscar-nominees back in 2001, specifically looking for factors that could influence life expectancy, and found that winners tallied up a survival advantage of about four years over their competitors who left empty-handed. Feel dubious about the connection? The study found that winning multiple awards correlated to an even longer life expectancy of two additional years!

    What's a survival advantage? It means successful stars are probably more likely to take care of their health and avoid risky behaviors while in the public eye. It's not a box-office silver bullet to success (Philip Seymour Hoffman comes to mind), but having the means to take that kind of care of oneself has been linked to a longer and healthier lifespan.

    After much debate over what cut would make it to theaters, Joon Ho-Bong's much anticipated "Snowpiercer" has finally received a release date from Radius-TWC. American audiences can finally see the festival favorite on June 27, according to BoxOfficeMojo.

    The summer release date indicates at least some degree of optimism at the box office from Harvey Weinstein & Co. Starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, and John Hurt, "Snowpiercer" tells the story of evolving class systems onboard a train circling the world thanks to a perpetual motion engine. Dealing with social issues, global warming, and Chris Evans' mangy beard, the film carries the weight of a freight engine and hopes to attract audiences venturing out for blockbuster fare this summer with its commentary, clashes, and cast.

    Much has been made about the film's long journey to cinemas. Now that a date is finally here, how excited are you, dear readers? Do you expect to see the best cut of the film come June, or will you anticipate various versions upon its Blu-ray release down the line?
