Separated at birth? Long-lost twins? Vague coincidence? It's all possible when actors look so alike they could be siblings.
Is that Zachary Quinto, the Chief Science Officer of "Star Trek Into Darkness," running from the horror of "Aftershock"? Ah, no, at second glance, that's actually Quinto's doppelganger, Eli Roth, the man who gave us "Cabin Fever" and shot Hitler full o' holes in "Inglourious Basterds."
Anyway, with "Aftershock" and the new "Trek" being released back-to-back, we figured this was the perfect time to match up our favorite Hollywood doubles as they compete for roles, attention and DNA. It's like looking into a mirror! Get More »
RZA has some fightin' moves!
The hip-hop maestro makes his debut as feature director and leading man in "The Man with the Iron Fists," a martial arts epic that has guaranteed our opening night attendance with its tagline alone:
"They put the F.U. in Kung Fu." Heh heh ... yeah. Get More »

When you envision Las Vegas, you think of Cirque du Soleil, Penn & Teller, erotic showgirls, Don Rickles and some kind of vague recollection of Rat Pack-era drunken romanticism.
Now you can add Eli Roth to that list of vaunted Vegas staples as The Guardian reports the horrormeister plans to gouge tourists of their cash and possibly more with an attraction called "Goretorium."
Having already adapted his popular "Hostel" torture porn series into a serious meatgrinder of a horror maze on the Universal Studios lot called "Hostel: Hunting Season," writer/director/occasional "Inglourious Basterd" Roth plans for Goretorium to be a multi-storey carnival spook house writ large and, likely, oozing with blood and other bodily discharges.

Who says Hollywood doesn't know sports? With Super Bowl XLVI just days away, many in the movie biz are showing their true colors in preparation for the big game. But the fandom elevates when two storied teams like the New York Giants and the New England Patriots face off.
Here, we take a look at 10 die-hard celebrity fans for each team. Based on this study alone, the Patriots fans may be better-looking; but if a fight were to break out at the bar this weekend, we'd want these Giants fans to have our back.
Ol' Dirty Bastard's life story is still coming to a theater near you … eventually. The rapper also known as Dirt McGirt, Big Baby Jesus or just simply ODB died in 2004, and in 2009 his cousin and fellow Wu-Tang Clan member RZA mentioned a biopic was a possibility.
In a recent interview with XXL, RZA dished some details on the project, and it sounds like it's moving into high gear. Not only that, it's attracted the attention of "30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan and actor Eddie Griffin. Get More »
If you think that making nipple rings out of human teeth sounds like a scene from the cutting room floor of "Hostel," you might just be right.
American torture porn pioneer Eli Roth is getting back in the human parts trade, but this time, his passion is personal.
Put on your thinking caps, because the director, better known to people who aren't in the habit of watching movies that require a follow-up with a psychiatrist as "The Bear Jew" from "Inglourious Basterds," is giving away his wisdom teeth to the fan who can come up with the most disturbed plan for them. Just like a serial killer anyone would! Get More »
Steve Jobs, the business-savvy genius who pioneered home computing with Apple and conquered the movie industry with Pixar, has passed on at the age of 56. The official Apple website has posted a tribute to the company's visionary leader, and even President Obama issued a statement hailing Jobs as "among the greatest of American innovators."
Jobs co-founded Apple, and in 1986, purchased the computer animation division of Lucasfilm called The Graphics Group, which later became the Pixar animation studio, one of Hollywood's biggest runaway success stories.
His global influence is being paid tribute to via the devices he devised as some of the biggest names in Hollywood took to Twitter to pay tribute to Steve Jobs...
Sticklers for grammar and continuity will need to break out their felt tip marker and began doctoring their DVD collection, because according to Ashley Bell, "The Last Exorcism" apparently wasn't as "last" as it was cracked up to be.
In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Bell revealed that not only is there going to be a sequel to the found footage horror hit, but she's going to be starring in it as well.
Are you ready for "The Next Exorcism?" Get More »
Beware... The Clown!
Attention, aspiring filmmakers: Apparently, making a fake trailer might just be the perfect calling card if you say the movie is directed by Eli Roth.
Filmmaker Joe Watts made a completely unauthorized (and completely fake) trailer for an Eli Roth movie called "Clown," which chronicles the madcap murderous rage of... well, a clown. Eli Roth saw the trailer, and instead of suing Watts, he called him up and said he wanted to make the movie for real. Get More »
