Based on a true life story, it’s been reported that Steve Carell has signed on to star in Bennett Miller’s latest project “Foxcatcher.”

According to Variety, the six-time Emmy nominee will take the lead in the crime drama, which tells the story of a murder by Olympic wrestler John Du Pont.

As for Carell’s part, he’ll play “a paranoid schizophrenic and heir to the du Pont chemical fortune, as John du Pont built a wrestling training facility called Team Foxcatcher on his Pennsylvania estate, where in 1996, he shot and killed Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler David Schultz.”

With E. Max Fry and Dan Futterman penning the script, “Foxcatcher” is slated to begin filming in March 2012.

Justin Bieber And Selena Gomez’s Arena Date: How Much Did It Cost?

September 30, 2011 by admin  
Filed under Uncategorized

Membership has its privileges, and when the club you’re in is the elite pop star society, there isn’t much you can’t get your hands on. That’s why a teenager like Justin Bieber was able to swing the swankiest surprise date of all time with his squeeze Selena Gomez on Friday night when he treated her to dinner and a movie at the Staples Center.

Now, before you get any ideas. The 20,000-seat home of the Los Angeles Lakers (and countless major concerts) is not available to just any Joe Schmo. No, Bieber reportedly got the keys to the palace for free because he’s sold the joint out three times and owner AEG Live figured they’d throw him a bone. Which got us thinking: What would it cost to treat your sweetie to a Bieber-esque night of steak and “Titanic”?

Check out photos of Justin and Selena.

As you might imagine, the powers-that-be at Staples weren’t really willing to spill the beans, but we crunched some numbers on our own and here’s what we were able to figure:

$475,000: That’s how much it would cost you to buy a high-end VIP luxury suite for 14 at the Staples Center, which would get you about 2,500 tickets a year to Lakers, Clippers and Sparks basketball games; L.A. Kings hockey games; concerts; lectures; X Games; and wrestling matches. Given that the venue holds 20,000, we can only imagine a one-night rental would run you well into the six figures.

$200-plus: Bieber ordered steaks and pasta from the exclusive members-only Lexus Club at Staples, a 130-capacity high-end dining area where even the buffet will run you $57.

Priceless: The lucky couple reportedly watched “Titanic” on their date. Now, most men would try to save a few bucks and rent the regular DVD, but given JB’s clear baller tendencies, is it safe to assume he called James Cameron and finagled an early copy of the 3-D anniversary Blu-ray edition that is due out in April?

$299 to $1,199: The price of renting an inflatable, 32- to 40-foot portable movie screen from FunFlicks.com for a special event. That is, assuming the Biebs did not make Gomez crane her neck and watch the whole movie on the Center’s Jumbotron.

194: That’s how many minutes “Titanic” would run if JB didn’t have a remote that would allow him and Selena to skip some of the hours of extras.

2:30 a.m.: That’s about how late into the morning the couple would have had to stay at Staples in order to watch all of “Titanic,” assuming they started it as soon as they arrived at 11 p.m. and had it running during their meal.

$300,000: The amount Bieber pulls in nightly at each one of his concerts.

$53 million: That’s how much Bieber banked in 2010. In other words, don’t sweat it: He can afford this kind of date every night of the year if he wants to.

What do you think of Justin’s date idea for Selena? Tell us in the comments!

Jay-Z Throws A Carnival For College Kids’ Scholarships

September 30, 2011 by admin  
Filed under Uncategorized

NEW YORK ? On Thursday night, Jay-Z hosted a carnival at the Hudson River Park pier for his Shawn Carter Foundation. But it wasn’t all Ferris wheels and funnel cakes ? unfortunately Momofuku doesn’t make those. The event was called Making the Ordinary Extraordinary, and it sought to raise funds for college scholarships.

MTV News caught up with Mr. Carter at the event, where he said the evening was about having fun while raising money for a good cause. Jay said two of the worst things in life are a waste of talent and a person who applies him- or herself but is unable to advance due to financial hardship. He hoped this foundation would help ease such burdens and assist people in recognizing their potential.

“Just providing opportunity and seeing what people do with that opportunity. If you want to go further and you want to further your education, just giving someone that extra little push [so] that maybe you’ll turn out to be someone special,” Jay said.

Jay and his mother, Gloria Carter, started the foundation in 2002 to help those facing socioeconomic difficulties further their education at institutions of higher learning. The foundation started with one student earning a full ride through college and grew to offer 50 scholarships to students in 50 different states annually from 2003 to 2005. More than 750 students have been awarded scholarships totaling in excess of $1.1 million, and nearly 500 kids have taken part in the foundation’s college tours ? some even rode the bus with Jay’s mom.

“My mom has been running this for a number of years,” said Jay. “My mom gets on the bus and takes the kids and takes them to their orientations and she’s been riding around the college. It’s a real grassroots thing that she’s been doing on her own, and I’m just really trying to help her expand it so we can help more people. It started out as a Brooklyn thing, and then it started as a New York thing, and now hopefully we can take it to a worldwide thing.”

The Kardashians Will Co-Host ?Today? Next Week

September 30, 2011 by admin  
Filed under Uncategorized

As if we weren?t on Kardashian overload already, four K?s and a B will serve as co-host for the fourth hour of the ?Today? show next week with Hoda Kotb. For some, they will avoid the hour at all costs, for others, such as myself, they will tune in to see how they do. Or watch as they fail. Badly. Surely some sort of mishap or drama will occur, right? Crying, perhaps? Heh.

I swear you can?t turn the TV on nowadays without seeing them on one show or another. The reruns on the E! channel of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe & Lamar and Kourtney and Kim Take New York, seriously is overkill. I know, I know, millions of people tune in. I suppose they should milk it while it lasts.

Next week a Kardashian will take a seat next to Hoda each day. So Monday we?ll see Khloe first, the third Kardashian sister and wife of Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom. I do actually like Khloe & Lamar?s reality show the best out of all of them. On Tuesday, Bruce Jenner, Kris Jenner?s hubby and stepfather to the Kardashian sibs, will serve as co-host. Oh my, I wonder how he?ll do. Kris Jenner is up on Wednesday and has co-hosted before, on Thursday it?s the oldest Kardashian sib?s turn (I really do think Kourtney is the prettiest of all the K?s), and last but not least, Kim takes a seat with Hoda on Friday. Did they save the best for last? She?s using her co-host gig as a means to promote her two part special on E!, ?Kim?s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event?, which will air on October 9 and 10. Speaking of weddings, Kathie Lee was a guest at her nuptials and is godmother to the Kardashian kids? half sisters, Kendall and Kylie. KL and Kris go way back, friends for over 30 years. Where is Kathie Lee you ask? She?s been in Seattle where her musical, Saving Aimee, opens tomorrow.

So I have to ask, readers. Will you be tuning into the fourth hour of Today next week?

Shailene Woodley Is New Class’ ‘Most Likely To Surprise’

September 30, 2011 by admin  
Filed under Uncategorized

Shailene Woodley is already the star of the hit ABC Family series “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.” For those not familiar with the show: It’s kind of like MTV’s “Teen Mom,” but all the drama is fiction. Still only a teenager at 19, Woodley is readying her not-so-secret life for the next phase of her budding career.

She’s set to star in the Alexander Payne-directed “The Descendants” with George Clooney, and her turn in the drama will likely help her connect to a whole new crop of fans. The film, which opens November 18, centers on a family trying to piece their lives back together.

Clooney plays Woodley’s dad who is trying to reconnect with her after his wife gets in a boating accident that leaves her in a coma.

Now that Woodley is ready to show another side of herself, she is the up-and-comer MTV Movies has named the New Class’ “Most Likely to Surprise Everyone.”

MTV: Do you get excited about roles?

Shailene Woodley: From the second I first read the screenplay for “The Descendants,” I was incredibly passionate about it. I loved how human it was and how it dealt with raw emotions, and it didn’t try and cover up the messiness of everyday life. So, I was incredibly passionate about it … And then Alexander became attached, and George Clooney became attached. Those were added components, but it was the screenplay that I fell in love with.

MTV: There are so many points where you can relate to this story. Can you give me a sense of what really hit you hard?

Woodley: There’s so many components: the loss of someone or someone being in a hospital or the dysfunctional family. Everyone can relate to all of those; we’ve all had those hardships. But, for me, it was more about the art of making a film that was real and a film that was human because I feel like cinema has drifted so far away from the truth of humanity that it was really refreshing to be raw and emotional in a film that was also comedic.

MTV: We’re always looking ahead, so we’re anointing you as a part of our New Class. Does it feel like now the choices are going to be different and more important?

Woodley: People always talk about “strategy” and whatnot. If a screenplay fuels my soul, then that’s what fuels my soul, and that’s what I’m going to be passionately committed to. I would love to continue to do movies ’cause that’s where my heart lies. I’m so grateful to the show, and I look forward to seeing what happens, and in the meantime, I’ll go hike the Swiss Alps.

MTV: Is it useful to look at other actors [for inspiration]?

Woodley: Absolutely! I think the world of Natalie Portman and Ryan Gosling and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I find them so inspiring, not only as actors, but as human beings, and I really respect their choices in films and what they bring to the table.
