No, we’re not talking about Courtney Stodden, we’re talking about this year’s newcomers to the Twitterverse. Having passed its half-decade mark, the site continues to attract A-listers who have a little time and 140 characters to spare for an occasional rant or rave. So, which celebs got a taste of the dreaded #failwhale for the first time in 2011? Read on… READ FULL STORY
Tag: Charlie Sheen (21-30 of 76)
Yesterday EW.com asked why FX would take such a big gamble on Charlie Sheen and potentially order 100 episodes (!) of his new sitcom Anger Management? While there’s no cut-and-dry answer, there is the theory that the network could turn a big risk into an even bigger success. After all, Sheen, for all his troubles, is a ratings machine (Two and a Half Men, his Comedy Central Roast) who still gets attention for his personal life.
There’s still some other looming questions for FX, though. Has Sheen changed for good? READ FULL STORY
Charlie Sheen in talks for 'Scary Movie 5' cameo. He should drop the 'winning' schtick to truly win.
Charlie Sheen made appearances in both 2003’s and 2006’s spoof fests Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4, respectively. Of course, that was a simpler time, before Charlie Sheen had truly become the Charlie Sheen we know now. But now Dimension, the studio behind the wildly successful Scary Movie franchise, confirmed to EW that Sheen is, in fact, “discussing a role” for the upcoming Scary Movie 5. But which Sheen will we see? Or want to see, for that matter? READ FULL STORY
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. READ FULL STORY
During last night’s pushing-the-boundaries-of-taste Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, comedienne Amy Schumer delivered a low-blow at the man of the hour, as well as his Two and a Half Men replacement Ashton Kutcher: “You’re just like Bruce Willis — you were big in the ’80s and now your old slot’s being filled with Ashton Kutcher,” she joked.
But Schumer wasn’t the only one to hit Kutcher where it hurt on Monday night. Even his beloved Twitterverse seemed to have turned their back on him, when the social networking website lit up with talk of Sheen and his harsh roast. But Sheen got the last laugh: According to Gigaom.com, social media monitoring group Visible Technologies found that the Charlie Sheen roast, and talk of all things about the tiger blood-infused warlock, garnered upwards of 400,000 tweets, while Kutcher’s debut on Two and a Half Men earned only around 150,000. (One of which he contributed to, with his post, “Man I wish I had the east coast feed so I could watch it with you all… #2.5.”) READ FULL STORY
Remember that time last night at the Emmy Awards when it seemed like Charlie Sheen was sincerely trying to make amends? Remember how he agreed to do a Comedy Central Roast (airing tonight at 10 p.m.), suggesting that he just might have a sense of humor about himself? Well, Sheen made the latest pit-stop on his “let’s try to salvage a tiny thread of my public image” tour Monday morning, and the results were… well… mixed at best.
Sheen stopped by The Wendy Williams Show for a sit down with the intrepid journalist, who grilled him not only on Two and a Half Men, but on two decades’ worth of romantic misfires. Unsurprisingly, the latter was not the best topic of conversation. While Sheen seems to be capable of expressing remorse for some of his crazier antics, he is still clearly unable to approach his romantic history with anything other than a flippant, self-deprecating manner that really comes across as cockiness.

While we’re all still waiting patiently for our hoverboards, (just four more years, PopWatchers!) Michael J. Fox brought the next best thing to his visit to The Late Show with David Letterman on Thursday night: The new Nike MAGs, a line of Back to the Future Part II-inspired shoes. Fox showed off the kicks, which are almost an exact replica of the ones worn by Marty McFly himself in the 1989 movie. (Sadly there’s no power laces, but they do light up.) The actor explained that the limited edition shoes (there’s only 1,500 of them) will be auctioned off on Nike’s eBay site and that the proceeds will go to his Parkinson’s research foundation. As Fox put it, the coveted shoes will go to three groups of “people with major joneses”: Sneakerheads, Back to the Future fanatics (who Fox joked are, “Out of their minds… in a good way”), and the Parkinson’s community that want to help advance research. Better yet, Fox revealed that Google co-founder Sergey Brin will match up to $50 million. Watch the moment below: READ FULL STORY
