Seth Rogen + Evan Goldberg’s ‘The Boys’ Has Begun the Search for Talent

Last week, Amazon announced that they will be home to Seth Rogen and his writing, producing, and directing partner, Evan Goldberg’s latest TV venture, “The Boys.” It’s a comic adaptation from the same author that created the “Preacher” comics, Garth Ennis, and Rogen and Goldberg were responsible for bringing that to the screen for AMC. The duo had previously announced that the series would go to Cinemax, but after a time in development, Amazon officially gave the project the green light. “The Boys” is a dark superhero story that follows a group of vigilantes, which gives the series its title, the boys, who bring down corrupt superheroes by fighting dirty. There’s no talent attached to the series as of now, but Los Angeles–based Ulrich/Dawson/Kritzer will be handling casting. There’s no word on when or where production will take place, but it appears that

Beyoncé Shares Photos of Blue Ivy and Chris Martin That Might Bring You to Tears
Beyoncé took to her personal blog last week to share a slew of amazing photos from her Super Bowl halftime show rehearsals with Bruno Mars and Coldplay's Chris Martin. The photos show the performers behind the scenes in a dance studio, where Beyoncé, clad in tights and a sweatshirt, goes over her moves and even takes a celebratory shot of alcohol with her crew. The cutest snaps, however, may be of Beyoncé and Jay Z's 3-year-old daughter, Blue, who looks to be having the time of her life while running around in a tutu and sneakers and playing with Chris, who picks up the toddler and swings her around. While Beyoncé, Bruno, and Coldplay took the field for their memorable performance, Blue was actually watching the show from her box seats with Chris's ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, and their kids, Apple and Moses.

Hellraiser Q&A Moderated By Fangoria Eic Chris Alexander!

While at Texas Frightmare Weekend, I had the pleasure of hearing from a few cenobites at the Hellraiser panel, known to other Frightmare attendees as the Cenobite Me panel. Doug Bradley, who played the infamous character of Pinhead, along with Nicholas Vince, who played Chatterer, and Barbie Wilde, who played the female cenobite in Hellbound: Hellraiser II reunited in Texas for a quick chat with Fangoria Magazine’s editor in chief, Chris Alexander. This was undoubtedly one of the most entertaining panels I’ve ever been to, and I feel lucky to have had witnessed it in person. However, I know a lot of people couldn’t make it all the way to Texas, so I wanted to share the experience with everyone. This way, everyone can rejoice in the event of some of horror’s most iconic figures reliving the shocking, provocative, unforgettable Hellraiser films that we all know and love.

Mission to Lars: film follows learning disabled man's dream

New documentary follows Tom Spicer as he leaves his Devon care home on a quest to meet Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich

Tom Spicer is wearing a huge pair of headphones and an expression of mild anxiety.

Backstage at the Honda Centre, Anaheim, California, at one of the world's biggest rock gigs, Tom is about to find out whether he will fulfill his 15-year-dream to meet his idol, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich.

Tom is now 40, and this scene took place two years ago. But this was not just a tick on a "things to do before 40" list – it was an unprecedented achievement. Tom has fragile X syndrome, the most common cause of inherited learning disability.

The Voice second live show: live blog

Join Stuart Heritage from 7.10pm for The Voice's second live show as Jessie and Danny's teams go head to head, fighting for survival

Hello, and welcome to The Voice liveblog. Can you believe it's only been one week since we were last here, watching Thingy competently sing that song and The One With The Hat competently sing that other song? It seems like a different time, man. A different time.

You might remember that last week The Voice dismissed Sophie Griffin, who sang a song that nobody had heard of in a way that nobody wanted to pay attention to; and Sam Buttery, who reacted to his elimination in the precise manner of an old lady watching her house burn down. With her cats in it. But forget those two, because tonight we've got ten more singers to plough through.

Last week was dedicated to the acts coached by Tom Jones and Will.

Love Is All You Need: Paul McCartney Honored By The Legends Of Rock

Love Is All You Need: Paul McCartney Honored By The Legends Of Rock
Sure, everyone gets nervous before going on stage. But when you're about to perform some of the most beloved music in history and on a grand stage in front of the man who made it all famous ... well, that calls for grander measures.

Backstage in the talent tent for the MusiCares Person of the Year gala, music legends requested everything from Advil to space heaters. Elvis Costello stood outside wife Diana Krall's dressing room, chatting with Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Duane Eddy, while Neil Young prepared separately in his tour bus. 85-year-old Tony Bennett made a call from his dressing room asking for vodka.

It was hard to know where to look on Friday night inside the packed La Convention Center ballroom -- but all eyes were decidedly on the man of the night, Sir Paul McCartney. As guests sat down to his personally chosen vegetarian dinner, McCartney ceremoniously chewed
