See The Rock join Jimmy Fallon for an old-school workout

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stopped by The Tonight Show to promote his new film Hercules, Jimmy Fallon asked about Johnson’s workout routine. From there, Johnson and Fallon put on some killer wigs, reenacted classic workout VHS tapes, and even perfected the art of the “squat thrust” as The Fungo Brothers.

As the Fungo Brothers always say, “You gotta hustle for the muscle!” READ FULL STORY

Dwayne Johnson maybe just revealed that he's playing a 'Justice League' superhero

Dwayne Johnson has long been rumored to play a character in Warner Bros’ rapidly expanding DC movie universe. In a surprising revelation happening days before the yearly Casting Revelation Geek Orgy known as Comic-Con, Johnson appeared to confirm his participation in the DC franchise. “DC and I have been talking for a couple of years now,” said the Hercules star, clearly excited to talk about anything besides Hercules. “There’s a character out there that we’re gonna announce really soon, that I’m gonna play.” READ FULL STORY

The Rock in 'Hercules' or Ben Stiller in 'Tropic Thunder': Who wears an animal head best? -- GIF

Hercules-Tropic-Thunder.gif

When the latest Hercules trailer hit the Web on Tuesday, there was something very familiar about The Rock going head-to-head with a lion and then donning his conquest’s furry head atop his own. It took us right back to one of the best moments of the action comedy Tropic Thunder, when a manic Ben Stiller murders a wild beast in the dark jungle only to discover in the light of day that his furious foe was a sweet, cuddly panda bear. The actor-turned-survivalist then wears the panda’s head like some kind of ursine ushanka.

The Rock’s divine Greek hero is a little more intimidating than Ben Stiller’s Tugg Speedman, but there’s no doubt they can both rock a furry hat. In the spirit of a celebrity gossip mag, however, we have to ask: READ FULL STORY

Robert Downey Jr. tops Forbes' list of highest-paid actors

It pays to be Iron Man.

Between June 2012 and June 2013, Iron Man 3 and Avengers star Robert Downey Jr. netted an estimated $75 million, nabbing him the No. 1 spot on Forbeslist of Hollywood’s Highest-Paid Actors. Unlike the Celebrity 100 List, this one is all about money, something that Downey knows a lot about recently. The Iron Man trilogy has grossed over $2 billion while The Avengers is now the third-highest grossing film ever.

A decade ago, if you had said that Downey would be King of Hollywood, you probably would have been met with laughter. Even though he appeared in some well-regarded projects — even receiving a Golden Globe for Ally McBeal and an Oscar nod for Chaplin — his drug abuse and erratic behavior was well documented and prevented studios from investing too heavily in his projects. He soon cleaned up, bounced back, and reinvented himself with his career-making turns in Iron Man and Tropic Thunder. READ FULL STORY

In honor of the 1,000th episode of 'WWE Raw' tonight, a look back at the first

Tonight is something of a television milestone, as WWE Raw will celebrate episode number 1,000. How do you celebrate such an incredible feat? By inviting basically everybody who has ever been on the program and cram in nearly 20 years of wrestling history, of course.

The guest list this evening includes former champions and crossover stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Mick Foley, and Brock Lesnar, as well as pro wresting legends from previous generations (Roddy Piper, Bret Hart, Mae Young, Sgt. Slaughter, Vader, Bob Backlund, and Road Warrior Animal among them). There’s also a ton of other stuff planned, like a championship match between current top-level guys John Cena and CM Punk, a wedding between Daniel Bryan and a game-changing woman named A.J., and the naming of a new General Manager of the show.

It will also be the launching pad for the program’s new three-hour format. Raw has occasionally expanded to three hours for the sake of some special events but normally clocks in at two hours. But when the show began in January of 1993, it was only an hour long. In fact, quite a bit has changed since the first program, which WWE put up on YouTube in its entirety. Go ahead and check it out below — even if you only tune in for two minutes, you’ll be shocked at how much can change over the course of 999 episodes.
