Houston, we have one heckuva problem.
Doing an animated film must be an absolute blast for an actor. Show up in your pajamas. No time in hair and makeup. Don't shave your fu manchu. All that the film's producers need is your voice — your sweet, golden, $20-million-a-picture pipes.
For some actors, however, that's a problem. It's no one's fault; in fact, it's often a testament to their on-screen success with other endeavors. But there are a certain group of thespians whose voices are just too damn distinct to hide behind a cartoon character. They might deliver a fine performance, but it just doesn't quite work because we all know their voice so well. Get More »
Practically every mega-star in Hollywood has gotten animated.
Tom Hanks was a toy. George Clooney was a fox. Eddie Murphy was an ass a donkey. And in the prehistoric adventure "The Croods," Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds play a cavegirl, a caveman and a caveboy, respectively.
We wondered what these stars would look like as animated people rather than as, you know, animals and neanderthals and stuff. Thanks to these 17 portraits, we've replaced our wondering with works of art. Get More »
Winning an Oscar represents the culmination of years of labor and faith in the careers of those who work in film. When your name is called, it's etched in stone forever, never to be taken away by anyone or anything. And that's all fantastic.
There's one final detail that can still go terribly awry, however; something that can, fair or unfair, eternally undermine your win and your performance in the film: A botched acceptance speech.
Don't **** up the acceptance speech.
Here are nine unfortunate incidences of a less-than-stellar moment in the Oscar spotlight. Get More »
Ahh, the never-ending pursuit of the almighty
dollar yen, euro and ruble. It will forever dominate us all — especially those in Japan, Europe and Russia, respectively.
That's where the following American movie stars traveled to film a commercial or two. Fortunately for us, what happens overseas does not stay overseas. Thanks, YouTube! We haven't quite forgiven you for Bieber, but this is a good first step. Get More »
UPDATE: The working title "1952" has been scrapped in favor of space age Disneyism, "Tomorrowland" – and a release date has fianally been announced. "Tomorrowland" will hit domestic theaters on December 19, 2014.
George Clooney is loving the alien.

You may or may not know that "Movie 43," the movie starring everyone you know and directed by everyone else, was seen by close to no one, making $5 million this weekend and finishing in a tie for sixth place at the box office. Disappointing, to be sure, and as is often the case when your movie is poorly reviewed and makes no money, now comes the 20/20 hindsight backtracking, courtesy of executive producer Peter Farrelly.
As our good buds at CinemaBlend report, Farrelly admits that his stars were pretty much guilted into being in the film. "They clearly wanted out! But we wouldn't let them." His strategy? "Wait for them. Shoot when they want to shoot. Guilt them to death." Get More »
The 2013 Golden Globes: Last night, at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's 70th annual awards bash, we laughed, we cried, we, well...drank. Co-hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey proved to be smart picks to shepherd audiences in-house and at-home through the three-hour ceremony, and the awards show's legendary open bar did not disappoint.
Weird moments and hilarity flowed as freely last night as the Moet stocked at the celebs' tables, and how better to relive those moments than in meme form? Below, check out nine of our favorite Golden Globes moments, meme-ified. In the wise words of early-2000s emo band Fall Out Boy, Thnks fr th Mmrs, guys.
1. Anne Hathaway is visited by the Ghost of Oscars Past
Holy Photoshop Wizardry, Batman!
Reddit user morphinapg has worked some finesse worthy of Batcave technology in merging the features of former Batmen Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale to create the be-all, end-all Caped Crusader (unmasked, of course).
Take a good look. Is that not the face of a billionaire playboy by day, masked vigilante by night? Let Hollywood be on the lookout for a headshot that most resembles the above when it comes time for "Justice League" casting.
Thanks to Heat Vision for the find.
Man, it's gotta be pretty hard for a superhero to keep a secret identity these days, what with the internet all up in everyone's business. Take Batman, for example: No matter how carefully he disguises his voice by making it sound like angry Grover, one snapshot and a face recognition algorithm later and suddenly we've got Bruce Wayne's face posted all over Gotham City.
