'Abduction' premiere: Watch Taylor Lautner and cast walk the red carpet! -- VIDEO

Taylor Lautner’s first big post-Jacob movie as an above-the-title star — the I’m-a-suburban-teenager-who-discovers-I’m-a-missing-person thriller Abduction –premiered Thursday tonight at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. And since it was kiiiiinda impractical for all of the Twilight Nation to pile onto Hollywood Blvd. to see Lautner walk the red carpet, we thought a replay of the live-stream event would work instead. Check out Lautner below, along with co-stars Lily Collins, Jason Isaacs, Maria Bello, Sigourney Weaver, Denzel Whitaker, and director John Singleton joining in on the festivities: READ FULL STORY

'SYTYCD': On the scene for Top 6 rehearsals, and an apology to Tyce Diorio, sorta -- EXCLUSIVE

Earlier today, I teased my exclusive first-hand look at the early morning rehearsals for tonight’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance with some ridiculously cryptic clues. I’d promised not to spill any big details until after the show had aired on the west coast — who am I to stand in the way of the “fairness” of reality TV call-in competitions — so instead, I had to get all ambiguous.

Not anymore! I have to say, as savvy as I’d like to think I am to the ways of reality television production lo these many years of covering SYTYCD and American Idol, getting to spend much of the day watching all the work that goes into mounting a single two-hour episode of my favorite reality TV show was illuminating, to say the least. And wouldn’t you know it, the day also provided me with the crow-eating experience of having to apologize to Tyce Diorio. Publicly. On this very blog. Right now.  READ FULL STORY

'So You Think You Can Dance': Teasers from this morning's rehearsals -- EXCLUSIVE

Anyone who watches So You Think You Can Dance even once knows the contestants dance their enviously well-shaped tushies off for our entertainment (weekly!). But until I got an exclusive first-hand look at this morning’s rehearsals for tonight’s Top 6 performance show, I did not quite understand just how maniacally dedicated these dancers really are to honing their craft. For one thing, they are dancing, full out, by 8 a.m. The most strenuous thing I do at that hour is walk my dog.

I’ve been asked not to spoil things until after tonight’s show airs, but I can give y’all some tantalizing teasers for what is in store — well, at least for the first half of the show, since the agreement with Nigel Lythgoe was only for my first born. (The joke’s on him: Technically, that’s my snark demon Smirkelstiltskin.) Anyhoodle, see if you can decipher these cryptic clues! READ FULL STORY

'Captain America' premiere screening at Comic-Con: On the scene!

As previously announced, Captain America: The First Avenger is holding a day of preview screenings at the UA Horton Plaza in San Diego — just a hop, skip, and a jump from Comic-Con, which is otherwise pretty low on new Marvel Studios fun. At the special 10 a.m. fan screening for Captain America, attendees were treated to a special performance by a gaggle of USO-style dancers dressed in red, white, and blue. They were performing a 1940′s-style song about a “Star-Spangled Man” that actually plays in the movie while Captain America is zooming around the country shilling for war bonds. Obviously, selling a film using patriotism is an incredibly thorny moral quandary and opens up a whole host of ethical questions about movie salesmanship, which is exactly what I’m mumbling to myself while I’m getting my picture taken with the USO girls.

The final 'Harry Potter' movie premiere in London: Watch video replay on EW.com!

Today, after 10 years, eight movies, and $6.4 billion in global box office, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint are walking down their final red carpet of the final London premiere of the final Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Just contemplate that for a second. Imagine your junior high, high school, and college graduations, smashed together into one massive event meant to convey the end of a decade of your life’s work, an event that also has meaning for people around the world. That is my best guess for what it will be like for these three young adults today.

And thanks to the wizardry of the interwebs, EW.com is live streaming the event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET, during which Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint will be joined by Potter author J.K. Rowling, producers David Heyman and David Barron, director David Yates, and countless members of arguably the greatest ensemble of British acting talent ever assembled.  CLICK HERE to watch the red carpet stream — the magic has already begun! (UPDATE: If you missed it live, you didn’t miss out: the video replay of the event is scheduled to be re-streamed in its entirety for 24 hours.)

'Glee' Live 2011: The shrieks shall inherit

When I boarded a train at Jamaica Station and immediately found myself sitting across from two teenage boys decked out in full Warbler getup — including Dalton blazers and sweaters, despite New York’s 80-degree weather — I began to think that I was in over my head.

We were headed to Long Island’s Nassau Coliseum to see Glee Live!, the show’s second annual concert tour. After this matinee performance and one more show Saturday evening, the cast of Fox’s chart-topping hit would be leaving for Europe — apparently, there’s no rest for the gleeful. I didn’t quite know what to expect… but if the superfans riding the train with me were any indication, the spectacle I was about to witness wouldn’t just be confined to what was happening onstage.

'Hot in Cleveland' returns to TV Land: You know what's more fun than watching it? Being there!

You know what’s more fun than watching TV Land’s delightfully throwbacky sitcom Hot in Cleveland, which returned to television last night? Being on set of the episode that aired last night! And not even that, but being there not exactly as press, but as an extra.

If you watched last night’s episode “Where’s Elka?” and watched close (and, you know, had any remote idea of what I look like, which you likely don’t), you would have seen me a couple of times. Albeit, very, very briefly, in a couple of the scenes where Joy (Jane Leeves), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), and Victoria (Wendie Malick) stumble into an Amish bar (Victoria postulates that it’s an “old-timey gay bar”) looking for Elka (Betty White). I’m dressed as an Amish bar dude. Did you see me? The photographic evidence of my presence — sitting at the table of guys that flash to when the gals enter the bar, and then later, next to guest star George Wendt — is below.


E3 2011: Inside Nintendo's booth! 'Zelda,' 'Kirby,' and a slew of 3DS games

For the Mario and Zelda fans in the crowd, we have our hands-on impressions of some of Nintendo’s hottest upcoming titles, straight from its bustling, flashing headquarters on the showroom floor of the Electronic Entertainment Expo is Los Angeles. Alhough the games demoed for the newly-revealed Wii U were just promos to show off the system’s capabilities, Nintendo displayed lots of promising software for the 3DS and original Wii. Chances are, at least one of these games will pique your interest, whether your bag is more pink puff balls with feet or more drawling, rotund space hares. READ FULL STORY

E3 2011: 'Batman: Arkham City,' 'Bioshock Infinite,' and other adventures from Day 2

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, is a convention you have to attend in order to learn how to attend it. Like a day spent at Disneyland, there’s simply too much to see and play at the gaming showcase, and any attempt to stuff one’s schedule to the brim would be ill-advised from a physical, mental, and sanitary standpoint.

Instead, E3 beckons you to roam its vast halls and appreciate its full-throttle extravagance. Where else are you going to witness Hulk Hogan signing autographs, Verne Troyer zooming by on a scooter, an orchestra playing music from Lord of the Rings, the most friendly looking dragon ever, and whatever the heck these guys are? Perhaps Comic-Con, which outshines E3 in terms of star power and do-it-yourself costuming. But E3 reigns when it comes to geektacular eye candy and eardrum-awakening loudness. (My colleague Adam Vary’s 10-step process for recreating E3 at home gets it just right.) Plus, as far as I’m aware, Comic-Con hasn’t been endorsed by Jesus, so there’s that. READ FULL STORY
