On second thought, Val Kilmer was the best Batman, says Joel Schumacher

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

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore reportedly at odds. Speaking of odds...

Things are not looking great for the six-year marriage of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. Though Two and a Half Men‘s new star has tweeted that we shouldn’t jump to conclusions — “When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME” — the tabloids are quoting sources close to Moore as saying that their relationship is teetering. Hence, paparazzi are stalking Kutcher to see if he’s still wearing his ring, Taiwanese artists have tackled the rumored discord, and oddsmakers are even speculating on their future together. According to PaddyPower.com, a website that clearly takes bets on anything, the odds of the couple divorcing before the end of 2013 are a cynical 2/5. Clearly, the smart money is thinking split. In fact, the smart money has already moved on to speculating about Ashton’s next girlfriend. Currently, Scarlett Johansson is the odds-on favorite (8/1) to land on Kutcher’s arm, with Eva Longoria (12/1), Jennifer Lopez (12/1), and Lindsay Lohan (16/1) close behind. The educated gambler in me trusts in past performance, so if I was a pathetic, compulsive gambler, I’d like Courteney Cox (25/1) and Madonna (33/1) as smart bets. I’m not compulsive enough, though, to lay money down on Sophia Loren (90/1).

Are you repelled by the practice of gambling on a marriage’s demise? Or is this the best news Lindsay Lohan has heard since Mean Girls?

Matthew Morrison to Jonah Hill: 'Nobody messes with someone from musical theater!'

Matthew Morrison has a message for Jonah Hill, who belittled and challenged Glee‘s Mr. Schue last week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and it goes a little something like this: “I know Sue Sylvester, Sue Sylvester is a friend of mine. Jonah Hill, you’re no Sue Sylvester.”

Last night, Morrison sent Fallon a video response, answering Hill’s challenge with, “Nobody messes with someone from musical theater!” Watch below. READ FULL STORY

Louis C.K. on the Dane Cook cameo: 'I really was letting my competitive ego f-- the bit up'

When Dane Cook appeared on an episode of Louie in August and the two comics shocked viewers by hashing out their real-life joke-stealing feud over Lady Gaga tickets, fans didn’t know what to think. Sure, it was brilliant, surreal theater, but what was real and what was fake? How did this encounter come to be, and did this on-screen rapprochement represent an off-screen conciliation? Well… sort of. In an expansive interview with the The A.V. Club, Louis C.K. revealed the circumstances that brought he and Cook together. (Watch it again here.) READ FULL STORY

Jonah Hill calls out Matthew Morrison: 'I'd like to see him sing his way out of this one!'

Well, it’s official: Nobody likes Mr. Schuester.

Especially not Jonah Hill, who all but declared war on Matthew Morrison, the actor who plays Glee‘s oft-maligned teacher/occasional rapper, during his visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday. The newly-svelte Moneyball star recalled a recent incident in which he attended a “douchey Hollywood party” where he tried to eavesdrop on a conversation between “Gossip Girl guy” Chace Crawford and Morrison, who had previously ridiculed him at a Fox television event (here’s that part of the story), only to hear that the Glee actor made a joke in which “Jonah Hill” was the uproarious punchline. It is on, PopWatchers.

Not only did Hill call Morrison out on national television with some flowery Sitter-like language (“Yo, Matthew Morrison, you better bring your s— next time I see you”), but he also earned some major street cred from the Roots (Questlove gave him a standing-O!). Check out the full clip below in which Hill draws the battle lines of this latest celebrity feud (“I’d like to see him sing his way out of this one!”). READ FULL STORY

Despite record-ratings for his old show, is Charlie Sheen still winning?

If CBS was worried yesterday about the future of Two and Half Men post-Charlie Sheen, they are breathing easily today. A huge audience of 27.7 million tuned in to see Ashton Kutcher make his celebrated debut on the show’s season 9 premiere last night. But as EW’s Ken Tucker points out, Sheen’s presence still dominated the proceedings — and it wasn’t just because of his character’s demise.

Ridicule Sheen, ridicule Two and a Half Men, ridicule its popularity, but you can’t overlook the role of Sheen’s innate Sheenism in making the show a ratings force. Though Kutcher wields his own supersized off-screen persona and brings his own brand of humor, it remains to be seen whether he can replicate the easy on-screen chemistry with Jon Cryer and Angus T.  Jones that made the show successful.

The latest chapter in the Tareq Salahi, Michaele Salahi, Neal Schon love saga: A story no one ever asked to read

Hearing the latest details of the scandalous romance between Michaele Salahi and Neal Schon plays a little bit like a Journey song: We’re all a little sick of it at this point and you’d probably enjoy it way more after having a few at the bar. Alas, it is too early in the morning for that and let’s face it, “Don’t Stop Believin'” will never go away.

The latest chapter in the Salahi-Salahi-Schon saga started a few weeks ago when The Real Housewives of D.C. star was believed to be missing by her party-crasher-in-crime, husband Tareq Salahi, when really she’d just run off with the guitarist from Journey, Neal Schon. (I know PopWatchers, if you’d had a nickel for every time!) Since then Tareq has filed for divorce and has spoken out about his soon-to-be ex-wife to E!, telling them that because of Schon’s track record (Schon has reportedly been married five times) “Michaele will be the victim.” Tareq, who claims Schon sent lewd photos of himself to a joint email account, also said his wife’s actions were something “a groupie sl– does.” READ FULL STORY

Larry Merchant wants a shot at Floyd Mayweather ... in 1961.

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather knocked out WBC welterwight champion Victor Ortiz in controversial fashion last night, throwing two mighty punches at a defenseless Ortiz after the champion had lowered his gloves following a pause in the fourth round. While boos rained down on Mayweather after the fight, he redirected his fury at Larry Merchant, HBO’s infamously meandering 80-year-old analyst, who persisted with questions about the fight’s climax that the new champ tried to sidestep. Finally, Mayweather exploded, “You never give me a fair shake. HBO needs to fire you. You don’t know sh– about boxing!”

Merchant shot back, “I wish I was 50 years younger and I’d kick your ass” before handlers separated the two men. Watch the exchange, courtesy of TMZ, below: READ FULL STORY

Sarah Hyland rips into Lea Michele for red-carpet stylings

Glee and Modern Family are pitted against each in several major Emmy Award categories tomorrow night, including Best Comedy Series, but their rivalry has bloomed into a feud thanks to some comments from Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland. As a guest on E!’s Fashion Police on Friday night, the actress who plays the oldest daughter of Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen mocked the red-carpet stylings of Glee‘s star, Lea Michele. “It’s like a slow-motion picture kind of thing. It’s just like, she puts her hands on her hips like this and like sticks out her collarbones — I don’t know if you can see — she sticks out her collarbones to make her look skinnier and she goes sticks out her lips,” she said, while simultaneously performing an impression. Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

Kate Gosselin on 'Today' claims fans 'are devastated,' says Jon wants 'mediocre for his kids'

Oh, PopWatchers, aren’t you just going to miss the all-around warmth and charm of Kate Gosselin? Did you grow to love her kids more than your own? Have I already laid on the sarcasm too thick? If you answered ‘Yes, of course, you jerk!’ to any of these questions, then by all means, read on.

While visiting Today to promote the final episode of her once-massively popular reality series Kate Plus 8 (formerly Jon & Kate Plus 8), the TV mom spoke rather somberly with host Matt Lauer about what she called “the end of an era.”

Gosselin said she was not only sad for the Kate Plus 8 fans (“They’re devastated. They’re saying, you know, you’re the neighbor moving far away and we won’t see you again,” she said), but also her co-stars children: “I feel sad for my kids because of all of the opportunities that they’re now questioning.” READ FULL STORY
