Stephen Colbert is Frank Underwood's new target

As Stephen Colbert spends his final few months on The Colbert Report, the talk show host remains unsure of what he’ll do next—though the real Stephen Colbert’s plans are already set. Luckily for him, Kevin Spacey appeared as House of Cards‘ Frank Underwood on his show last night to offer some seemingly friendly advice.

Complete with his southern drawl and unintelligible metaphors about animals, Underwood promised to take Colbert under his wing if the talk-show host ever pursues a career in Washington. All Underwood asked was that Colbert meet him at the edge of a train platform—which should give any fan of House of Cards a moment of pause for Colbert’s safety. READ FULL STORY

NeNe Leakes to make Broadway debut as wicked stepmother in 'Cinderella'

Is there such thing as an octuple-threat? Because NeNe Leakes can add another role to her stacked resume – Broadway star.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Glee actress has signed on to play the wicked stepmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway, from Nov. 25 to Jan. 3, 2015. Leakes will be taking over the role from the show’s current stepmother, Sherri Shepherd, and acting alongside Keke Palmer, who plays the titular character. Leakes recently came off a stint as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, which could come in handy in case the stepmother ends up doing some wicked jazz hands.

The play also announced that it will also close its two-year run on Jan. 3, 2015.

In 'Velocity 2X,' new-school speed meets old-school charm

Velocity-2X

“Just one more level,” I told myself more than a handful of times as I played Velocity 2X. The game took a few levels to grab me, but within minutes of playing, I was hooked.

Before players are inundated with a bunch of big-budget action games and shooters—Destiny releases just one week from now­— today, developer Futurlab managed to slip in their space shooter Velocity 2X. It may not be able to compete with the bombast of releases coming in the next few months, but I likely won’t enjoy such a wholly crafted and purely fun experience this fall as Velocity 2X.

'Super Meat Boy Forever' announced for phones, tablets

Super Meat Boy has been driving fans of platformers crazy since 2010, when the game’s fun but tough gameplay and cute protagonist debuted on the Xbox 360. The game, which was also featured in the documentary Indie Game: The Movie, has since been released on a number of platforms but has remained noticeably absent from phones and tablets. The game’s developer, Team Meat, revealed a solution to this problem during PAX Prime with the reveal of Super Meat Boy Forever. READ FULL STORY

Saints Row franchise continues with 'Gat Out of Hell'

gat-out-of-hell

As the Grand Theft Auto franchise went further down the road of depicting a real open-world setting as accurately as possible, the Saints Row series veered in a near opposite direction. The latest entry in the series, Saints Row IV, gave players control of a superpowered President of the United States as he or she fought their way out of a simulated city controlled by aliens. (It’s as delightfully crazy as it sounds.) The series’ insanity and irreverence know no bounds, and it appears the titular Saints will push the limits all the way to the underworld in a new expansion revealed at PAX Prime.

Titled Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell, the standalone content focuses on franchise favorites Johnny Gat and Kinzie Kensington as they are thrown into hell. The two must fight their way through legions of demons and, according to the game’s trailer, “prominent historical figures,” before taking on Satan himself. READ FULL STORY

Robin Williams' daughter Zelda returns to Twitter

Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda was bullied on social media after her father’s death, causing the 25-year-old to suspend her Twitter and Instagram accounts. “Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever,” Zelda posted on Twitter Aug. 13. Nearly three weeks later, she’s back.

Zelda posted a simple tweet Monday, her first since Aug. 13, reading “Thank you.” In that tweet, she also linked to a Tumblr post containing a quote from actor Harvey Fierstein: “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life; define yourself.” READ FULL STORY
