Segel To Quit ‘How I Met Your Mother’?

Categories: Uncategorized

Actor Jason Segel is set to quit hitU.S.sitcom How I Met Your Mother after its upcoming eighth season, according to a report.

The funnyman has been portraying the loveable Marshall Eriksen on the Emmy-winning TV comedy since its inception in 2005, when he was cast alongside Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor and Cobie Smulders.

The star has been branching out into Hollywood in recent years and recently scored box office success with movies including Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up and The Muppets, and it appears he’s ready to leave behind his TV roots to focus on more varied film roles, like his character in his latest romantic comedy, The Five-Year Engagement.

In an interview with Austrian website kurier.at, he is reported as saying, “It’s great to do some ‘Rated R’ stuff again, because I’ve been playing the nice guy for quite a long time now. That’s why I’m gonna quit How I met your Mother after the eighth season.”

The eighth season of How I Met Your Mother is due to premiere in theU.S.in September.

A representative for Segel had yet to respond to requests for a comment as WENN went to press.

Categories: Uncategorized

Michael Douglas got into character as pianist Liberace on the set of “Behind the Candelabra” in Los Angeles yesterday. The actor showed off his dark dyed hair, 70s sunglasses and leisure suit.

We also spotted Matt Damon looking very shaggy with longer-than-usual feathered hair. He plays Liberace’s gay lover, Scott Thorson, who filed a $113 million palimony lawsuit against the musician in 1982 and later wrote a book about his experiences.

In order to prepare for the role,Douglastook piano lessons and even lit up the house he shares with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones with Liberace’s signature prop, the candelabra. Douglas also tried on his wife’s underwear to play the flamboyant pianist.

Liberace, whose real name was Wladziu Valentino Liberace, was extremely popular in the 1950s and 60s. However, he refused to admit he was gay right up until his death from AIDS in 1987 at the age of 67.

Lindsay Lohan Demands Movie Crew Strips Down Before She Does

Categories: Uncategorized

Lindsay Lohan will show you hers, if….

Lindsay got naked with the entire ten man crew on the set of her new film.

TMZ is reporting that Lil’ LiLo got so nervous before having to shoot a topless sex scene for her new movie, “The Canyons,” that she demanded an orgy of bare flesh all around.

She figured if she was going to have to go topless for the sake of art, the rest of the crew was going to have to do the same for the sake of their jobs.

Flash forward to Lindsay rocking it in front of the camera, and ten dudes standing behind the lens, watching in their boxers.

So why would Lindz, who’s had her own spread (eagle) in Playboy and a notorious short-skirt free-baller for paparrazzi’s sake, clench up under the pressure of side boob?

Could be she’s out of her league. Her co-star and fellow scene mate in “The Canyon’s”, James Deen, is a legit porn star. That would be kind of intimidating right?

But let’s be real, she had to know what she was in for. Directed by Paul Schrader (who wrote “Taxi Driver” and “Raging Bull”) and written by Bret Easton Ellis (“American Psycho”), the film is basically considered a sex thriller.

“Youth, glamor, sex and Los Angeles, circa 2012.” What more did she need to know?

Anyway all that aside, we say, good job Lindsay, let’s demand equal nudity on set – those dudes have sat back and watched for long

enough!

But let’s hope they all made suitable wardrobe decisions while they unbeknownst got dressed that morning. I mean, we all have that last pair of totally unsuitable skivs that we rock on laundry day. Totally embarrassing.

Debbie Rowe, Mother of Michael Jackson’s Eldest Children, ‘Upset And Praying’ Guardianship Battle Is Solved (EXCLUSIVE GUEST BLOG)

Categories: Uncategorized

Writing exclusively for Celebuzz, New York Times best-selling investigative journalist Ian Halperin (‘Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson’) reveals Debbie Rowe — the biological mother of Prince and Paris Jackson — is concerned for her children’s welfare as an L.A. judge grants custody to the late King of Pop’s 34-year-old nephew, T.J. Jackson.

The ongoing public feud between Michael Jackson’s siblings and the executors of The King Of Pop’s estate did not surprise the biological mother ofJackson’s two eldest kids.

According to a source close to Debbie Rowe, the mother of Prince and Paris Jackson, she was extremely aware of how a notably adversarial relationship between the Jackson family and the executors of MJ’s estate developed in the past several months.

“Debbie is acutely aware of what is going on and is monitoring the situation closely,” the source revealed. “She knew about this for months and hoped that it would work itself out behind closed doors. She was upset that everything is being dragged out in the public eye, something Michael would have opposed staunchly. She loves her children unconditionally and prays that they will not be dragged into this publicly any further. She thinks it’s a very delicate and sad situation that should not be aired publicly.”

Rowe reportedly cut a trip to a horse show short and hurried back to southern Californiawhen she got wind of missing person reports about the children’s legal guardian, Katherine Jackson.

“Debbie would like Katherine to consult her before making any changes to the agreement they worked out together after Michael died,” a source told the NY Daily News.

For nearly a decade, Rowe’s contact with her two children was extremely minimal. She’s always maintained that it was at her discretion, because she thought MJ was more than suitable to look after the children on his own.

“I didn’t do it to be a mother,” she once said. “I didn’t change diapers. I didn’t get up in the middle of the night, even when I was there, Michael did it all.”

Now, Rowe appears to be on good terms with her two children, but somewhat betrayed by the recent public firestorm among theJacksonclan. Last month, to mark the third anniversary of her father’s passing, Paris Jackson tweeted a touching photo of her dad kissing Debbie Rowe, captioning it “Mommy and Daddy”.

“The children have been in contact with their mother and the relationship is somewhat better than it’s ever been,” the source close to Rowe revealed. “But she’ll still do whatever she can to protect them. She fully accepts the responsibility of protecting her children’s welfare even though they are under the full time guardianship and care of someone else.”

Last week a L.A.judge took custody away from Michael’s mother Katherine and handed it to children’s first cousin, 34 year-old TJ Jackson who has been very close to MJ’s three children since their father’s passing.

“Debbie understands how difficult it must be for Michael’s mother to raise the children because of her age,” the source close to Rowe said. “She knows how much the children love and respect TJ so for now she accepts the new situation. But if things don’t go as planned you can be sure she’ll be back in court looking after the best interests of her kids. Under the present circumstances that’s basically all she can do.”

As for the allegations of fraud alleged by theJacksonsagainst the executors of MJ’s estate, the source close to Rowe was skeptical.

“They (Branca and McClain) seem to be doing a great job,” the source said. “They have erased the huge debt and the estate will be very profitable in the future, which is great news for the children. It’s confusing why the family is so up in arms. Michael’s will was very clear. But if Michael didn’t actually sign the will, as the family alleged, then there would be no statute of limitations for the family to challenge the will because there is no statute on fraud. If the family can really prove this then a lot of things will change. But if they’re wrong and don’t have concrete proof they should stop now, especially for the sake of the children.”

Rumor: Janet Jackson Banned From Her Mother Katherine Jackson’s House

Categories: Uncategorized

It looks like things have gotten really nasty for Janet Jackson and her family! After all the drama surrounding mother Katherine Jackson‘s disappearance last week and her losing custody of her three grandchildren, Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket Jackson, her lawyers have just barred Janet Jackson and several of her siblings from entering her house as they were the perpetuators in trying to get Michael Jackson’s Estate to overturn his will, which they claim is fradulent.

The ban has been proposed by Katherine’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman. He says in a letter:

“Given the circumstances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs. Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds, and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children.”

We are really, really disappointed that Janet is involved in this mess. Wasn’t she always considered the normal one? Well, I guess that title will now go to LaToya Jackson who has claimed that she wants nothing to do with this family drama. Janet, take note!

Jeff Probst Gets His Own Talk Show

Categories: Uncategorized

“Kelly and Jeff will be back after the break.”

It wasn’t so far-fetched. Well, before Jeff Probst got his own talk show, that is.

Jeff Probst, who was at the Television Critics Association tour to promote his new syndicated daytime talk show titled The Jeff Probst Show, had success as a co-host with Kelly Ripa, filling in for Regis Philbin on a part-time basis. So Probst was asked if there was any communication about him possibly taking the position full-time once Regis retired.

“I received one phone call from ABC,” revealed Probst, the longtime host of Survivor. “And we did talk a little. But what I couldn’t tell them is, I was already in negotiations with CBS to do a talk show.”

Plunging in alongside many others trying to fill the massive daytime hole left by Oprah Winfrey, The Jeff Probst Show is a one-hour series that will air in Canada on Global, starting Sept. 10.

“You take what appeals to you and leave behind the stuff that doesn’t,” Probst said when asked how his show will be different, or similar, to other daytime talk forays.

“You could make arguments for every successful show. You could argue that the judge shows and the conflict shows where people are fighting do very well in the ratings. I’m not saying they’re not successful shows. I’m just saying, that’s not what interests me.

“What interests me is the idea of a dinner party and you invite 12 people over and then four people leave a little early and eight stay behind. This is the conversation that happens with those that stay behind.”

Ripa, meanwhile, has been ripping through many co-hosts in kind of a treadmill audition process since Philbin left.

“Be patient,” Probst said when asked if he had any advice for the former Regis and Kelly show. “That’s what we did when we hired our staff (for The Jeff Probst Show). The mantra was, no a——- and don’t panic. If we can’t find the producers we want, just wait, they’re out there.

“They’re waiting to find the right person, just like they waited for Kelly. It’s worth it. You could argue Kelly doesn’t need a co-host.”

Whatever happens with Ripa, Probst said working with her gave him a crash course in the genre.

“The biggest thank you I owe is to Kelly Ripa and to Regis,” Probst said. “I mean, Regis is the one who said yes to letting me sit in his seat. He could have easily said, ‘I don’t want that guy here, find someone else.’ But he didn’t. And Kelly and I had this great chemistry.

“Honestly, nothing scared me. I feel so comfortable on that stage. I’m not a bulls—er. My only question is, does the audience want what we’re going to do? We’re going to do an hour show that hovers around my personality.”

Only time will tell if The Jeff Probst Show is a Survivor.

Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis & More: Five Reasons You Must See ‘The Campaign’

Categories: Uncategorized

If two of the funniest men in Hollywood isn’t enough of a reason for you to see ‘The Campaign’ — I can give you five more. Read on for more details!

Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis and politics are a hilarious combination that make for a must-see summer movie.

Will plays Cam Brady, an incumbent — and arguably incompetent –fictitious Congressman of a troubled district in North Carolina. He’s the only one in the running for another term in Congress and is expected to win until the ultra-wealthy Motch brothers ask the naive, pug dog-loving and unlikeliest choice, Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), to run against Cam in hopes to ultimately build a Chinese sweatshop in their district.

Marty is clueless about the Motch brothers secret plan and unfortunately gets sucked into their dirty, devious ways which turns into a comical catastrophe full of fighting, sex and guns. The truth about politicians and how their decisions are sometimes money-driven is the theme of The Campaign, but mixed with Will and Zach’s humor, its satirical writing and Jay Roach’s directing — this movie will undoubtedly be a quotable one — think in the same realm as Anchorman or Wedding Crashers.

Now without further adieu, and spoiling too much, here’s why you need to see The Campaign before the end of the summer.

#1 It’s Pee-In-Your Pants Funny

There are plenty of “oh my gosh they really said that moments?” in the film. Some are are just plain outrageous and others are PG-rated, but overall you’ll be laughing every five minutes.

#2 You’ll Learn Something

Who doesn’t appreciate a good history lesson, right? Despite it’s out-of-control humor, you’ll definitely walk out of the movie theater feeling like you’ve learned a thing or two about politics and America.

#3 It’s All About The Underdog 

At first you’ll feel indifferent about Marty, but by the end you’ll be rooting for him!

#4 Zach Galifianakis Plays His Most ‘Normal’ Character Yet

Marty has his own strange quirks about him, but he’s not a total weirdo. And by the end of the film, those quirks actually become endearing.

#5 Overall A Star-Studded Cast

Will and Zach aren’t the only stars in the flick. Did we mention Jason Sudeikis, Dan Aykroyd and Dylan McDermott also star in the movie?

The film opens nationwide August 10th, 2012
