In the past two months, dozens of celebrities have voiced their support for the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement. Sin City director Frank Miller is definitely not one of them. This past Monday, Miller went to his blog to post his thoughts about OWS, and it seems a feud is about to get as ugly as Basin City itself. Addressing the protestors as “losers” and demanding they “go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords of Warcraft,” Miller wrote to OWS participants: READ FULL STORY

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is currently producing a film about The Beatles, but the guy knows a thing or two about another band whose often tumultuous back story is just as memorable as the music itself. Why, Oasis, of course!
In an interview with UK publication The Independent, Gallagher, who has had a — for lack of a better word — strained relationship with his brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel Gallagher (he did, after all, sue him this year for remarks he made at a press conference), said he wouldn’t be opposed to sharing their rocky rock n’ roll tale with audiences at the movies. “Sometimes, when we’ve had a few drinks, we sit about telling stories and talk about putting them in an Oasis film. I’d be up for that … But I’d start it with Paris. I wouldn’t want it to end on such a bummer. I’d start at the end and work my way backwards,” the younger Gallagher brother revealed.
So who should play those lovable Gallagher brothers? READ FULL STORY
Brett Ratner talks Olivia Munn relationship, fallout: 'She talked about my shortcomings ... She's bitter.'
Brett Ratner appeared on G4′s Attack of the Show for just a little over six minutes, but that was plenty of time to cover a wide range of topics. The director took the time to delve into his new film, Tower Heist, the upcoming Oscars (which Ratner is producing), Occupy Wall Street (a “viral marketing” campaign for Tower Heist, according to Show co-host Kevin Pereira), and sex with Olivia Munn. Wait, what?
For those unaware of the gossip, Munn wrote in her memoir, Suck It, Wonder Woman!: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek, that she once saw a Hollywood director holding his “undersized manhood” while eating shrimp. It’s long been rumored that she was referring to Rush Hour director Ratner, and while he did admit on Show Thursday that he was the subject of the passage, he’s claiming that none of it’s true. And making sure to heighten the drama while he’s at it. “I used to date Olivia Munn … when she was Lisa,” said Ratner of Munn, née Lisa Munn. “That was the problem. She wasn’t Asian back then.” READ FULL STORY
Today in Jon Stewart news: Host chats with Condi Rice about the Iraq War, dubbed a 'racist' by Donald Trump
Today in Who-Can-Play-Nice-With-Jon-Stewart-And-Who-Can’t News, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sat down with The Daily Show host for an in-depth, frank, open discussion on the heated topic that is the Iraq War, while former Owner of Human Hair Donald Trump blasted Stewart for a recent segment about Presidential candidate Herman Cain and declared him a “racist.”
Rice stopped by The Daily Show on Tuesday night to promote her book No Higher Honor, where, in addition to telling a great ice-breaking story about recently deceased Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi (he had a notorious infatuation with her), had a nearly 20-minute conversation with Stewart about the Iraq War. In what could only be described as the rarest jewel in cable news programming (The Daily Show can win all the comedy Emmys it so richly deserves, but it’s also, most definitely, a news show): A level-headed talk between two opposing sides on a topic they’ll never fully reach an agreement on, but can, at the very least, state their case in a civilized manner. Watch all three parts of the fascinating, and yes, at some times, tense, interview below: READ FULL STORY
After Libya strongman Moammar Gadhafi was killed by rebels on Thursday, many celebrities marked the occasion with humor on Twitter. “Lunch with Gadhafi, cancelled,” tweeted Steve Martin. On Saturday, actor Orlando Jones went in a different direction, posting, “Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin(:”
After the post came from the MADtv star’s unverified account, followers got into a war of words with him over what he wrote about the former Alaskan governor. While Palin did not respond on Twitter to Jones’ remarks, her supporters did. An account called Tennessee4Palin (@TN4P) wrote, “Why does @TheOrlandoJones think it’s funny to call for Sarah Palin to be murdered? #palin #liberaltolerance”, to which Jones responded, “No I don’t. I think it’s funny that you are so upset about my inane tweet.” READ FULL STORY
Typically it’s Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine that’s the one taking requests, but on Wednesday, The Voice mentor had one for Fox News: Don’t play my music. Or, more specifically, as he put it on Twitter, “Dear Fox News, don’t play our music on your evil f–king channel ever again. Thank you.”
While the network didn’t have an official statement regarding the tweet or which of his songs in particular that Levine was referring to, Fox News hosts Andy Levy and Greg Gutfeld of the late night program Red Eye responded personally to Levine on Twitter. Levy wrote back to the pop star, “Dear @AdamLevine, don’t make crappy f–king music ever again. Thank you,” while Gutfeld fired off tweets from his page like, “Dear adam, That’s not music” and “fun joke: why did Maroon 5 cross the road? because crappy music is legal there! @adamlevine.” READ FULL STORY
Kelsey Grammer’s sitdown with Piers Morgan aired last night, and, of course, Morgan got him to open up about his very public divorce with his third wife, Camille. Did she marry Grammer because he was a TV star, he asked? “I think she married me because I was Frasier,” Grammer laughed. “I think it was Frasier. You know, he had this great wonderful life … he was stylish … and fabulous, you know, just a little gay … and he was famous. Kelsey Grammer was a different story. You got home and Kelsey Grammer was somebody different.” Asked which of Camille’s comments have hurt him most, Grammer thought of two. ”She once said that I didn’t want my daughter… that pissed me off,” he offered first. (Morgan put that into context as only he could: “You’ve been a fairly hopeless husband from time to time with the various wives, and then some of them have been pretty useless wives, but you’ve throughout been a very contentious, loving father, so that kind of thing must really hurt you.”) The statement that stung both him and his fourth wife, Kayte Walsh, even more was “that thing about the child we lost … something about it being karma … it’s just disgusting,” Grammer said.

The ladies entered this season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey like lions, and they obviously had no intention of going out like lambs. With an 11th-hour flair-up caused by Housewife Teresa Giudice’s trash-talking in her latest book Fabulicious!, the women of Franklin Lakes — even usually diplomatic Caroline Manzo (pictured right) — went into the two-part finale on decidedly bad terms. After learning that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, with whom she’s skirmished all season, was in touch with former Housewives nemesis Danielle Staub, Teresa spits, “You’re the devil! I’m, like, lookin’ at The Exorcist right now!” See the diabolically good preview after the jump.
Asking Joel Schumacher about his Batman films must be like asking Steve Bartman about the Chicago Cubs. But the director, who was blamed for nearly killing the franchise after 1997′s Batman & Robin, seemed to have a healthy perspective when an IFC.com reporter brought it up during press for his latest film, Trespass, with Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman. “I’m responsible for everything. I said, ‘yes’ and I took it on,” he said. “It’s not my favorite movie I’ve ever made, but I’m proud of my cast and I’m proud of all the artists who worked on it. I take full responsibility for Batman & Robin.”
Schumacher is much prouder of his first Batman film, 1995′s Batman Forever. “For me, Val Kilmer was the best Batman,” he said. “I thought he looked great in the costume, and I thought he brought a depth to the role. I thought the relationship between Val and Nicole Kidman was very sexy.”
Wait! What? Rewind. “For me, Val Kilmer was the best Batman”?! READ FULL STORY
