Since the news broke earlier today of the explosions that went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, there has been an outpouring of support online, including from celebrities via Twitter. But at least one celeb was quick to vocalize his thoughts about the tragedy with more than 140 characters. Actor-comedian Patton Oswalt went serious on his Facebook page on Monday afternoon to respond to news of the explosions that have reportedly killed two people and injured dozens more.
Oswalt, known for roles in such films as Young Adult and Pixar’s Ratatouille, first recalled his feelings following the plane hijackings on Sept. 11, 2001. “My reaction was, ‘Well, I’ve had it with humanity,’” he wrote. READ FULL STORY »
This year’s Pulitzer Prize winner for drama, announced Monday along with other winners for the highly prestigious writing awards, is the play Disgraced, which opened at Chicago’s American Theater Company in January 2012.
The Pulitzer for drama honors “a distinguished play by an American author, preferably in original in its source and dealing with American life.” Disgraced, which centers on a dinner party gone wrong, moved to New York’s Lincoln Center Theater after its initial run in Chicago. Set to have its London premiere next month, the American production starred Indian-American actor Aasif Mandvi (The Daily Show) as Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots.

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel have a long, public friendship that includes songs, smiles, cursing, and one hijacking.
It now includes a vow renewal: People reports that Kimmel officiated the “sunset ceremony” between Damon and his wife, Luciana Bozán Barroso, this weekend on the 10-year anniversary of the couple’s first meeting. Robert DeNiro, Don Cheadle, and the Affleck clan were all reportedly in attendance.
A source told the mag, “It was a very family-oriented and happy celebration.” Afterward, cocktails were served while children played with white parasols. This otherwise beautiful image raises a few questions, like: Has Ben been replaced as Damon’s No. 1 Pal? And also: Did Kimmel waste a golden opportunity to stage a very-special episode of Matt Damon Sucks?
In honor of the occasion, take a video tour through the Damon/Kimmel hijinks. Fun fact: the first thing that pops up in Google under the pair is “Matt Damon Jimmy Kimmel feud.”
MTV Movie Awards host Rebel Wilson is known for a particularly uncomfortable brand of comedy. Witness: Pitch Perfect‘s Fat Amy, who told the Barden Bellas she adopted the moniker “so skinny bitches like you don’t do it behind my back.” Considering the fact that at least one promo for tonight’s show featured a punchline in which Wilson found her in a compromising position regarding Channing Tatum’s junk, it seemed clear that the Aussie hostess wouldn’t spare the salacious.
To her credit, Wilson didn’t go the safe route. Most of her jokes fell on the absurdist side of the comedy spectrum rather than the conventional, Poconos-style yuks that hosts generally adopt for these occasions. (The one exception, in her intro of Kerry Washington: “Our next presenter is one of the few actresses that plays strong black women more than Tyler Perry.”) Whether her one-liners landed or not, they certainly delivered an across-the-board jaw-drop factor.
Below, we run down Wilson’s most obscene, sometimes cringe-worthy, lines from the 2013 ceremony. READ FULL STORY »
In an episode that saw the teams creating 60 second silent movies promoting Australian Gold sun care products, one celebrity dressed up as a caveman, another discussed the finer points of cocaine and strippers, while another was fired before all was said and done.

In 2004, ABC Family premiered the TV movie I Want to Marry Ryan Banks. It stars a post-Alias Bradley Cooper as a talent manager who convinces his friend/falling star client Ryan Banks (Jason Priestley) to do a Bachelor-type reality show to rehab his image. The twist: The sane, likable contestant Ryan is supposed to choose, Charlie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Emma Caulfield), falls for Cooper’s character instead.
If you’ve seen the movie — penned by Chad Hodge, the future creator of NBC’s The Playboy Club who is currently developing the Twin Peaks-esque limited series Wayward Pines with M. Night Shyamalan for Fox — odds are you’ll be thrilled to hear it’s debuting on Hallmark this Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET. And after reminiscing with Hodge, we can confirm that you are not alone.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Are you aware of how much people love this movie, or did our interview request come as a complete shock?
CHAD HODGE: Your email was forwarded to me, and I laughed because I have had that conversation with so many people — people I know and people I don’t know. I’ll be out at a bar with friends, and they’re like, “That’s the guy who wrote I Want to Marry Ryan Banks.” And it’s like, “You wrote that movie? I’ve watched that movie 19 times.” I love that of all the things in my career, this is the thing that everyone’s obsessed with.
I imagine it’s women like me, in their mid-30s.
Totally. And women in their mid-20s: Girls who were in high school and sick with a cold for three days probably saw it, and they’ve just been watching it ever since. I don’t know. It’s so funny. Girls of every age. Or gay guys, of course. READ FULL STORY »
Mary-Louise Parker is set to star in the world premiere of The Snow Geese, a new Broadway play from writer Sharr White.
Set in the time of World War I, The Snow Geese follows a widow and her two sons, who set off on their annual hunting trip only to realize that their pre-war life is over, as their days are now clouded with harsh realities of battle and debt.
