Everybody has at least one friend who is obsessed with Batman. They collect the comics, put the pointy ears and cape on for Halloween, or watch "The Dark Knight" like it's their job.
There's probably a part of these incurable obsessives that wishes either A) they could live in Wayne Manor with Alfred or B) that Batman was in every movie, and luckily that second fantasy has been fulfilled with the YouTube vid "Batman in Classic Movie Scenes." Get More »
It seems like only yesterday we met Daniel Radcliffe as the titular boy wizard in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." Now, more than 10 years later, the "Harry Potter" series has ended and Radcliffe is on his way to a successful post-Potter movie career. Yes, "the boy who lived" has become a man, and he turns 23 today.
While getting the chance to play the movie version of one of the most famous characters of the 21st century would be enough to make anyone happy, Radcliffe's not letting one iconic role define his career. After "Potter" wrapped, he went on to star in the spooky "The Woman In Black" and take the stage as the lead role in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" on Broadway. Up next, Radcliffe will star in the horror flick "Horns" and the indie rom-com "The F Word."
We're psyched to see what new movie magic Radcliffe turns out as a mature leading man. Happy birthday, Daniel! And here's hoping you celebrate with all the butterbeer and chocolate frogs you want.
Tom Green can claim all he wants that he invented planking back in 1994. We all know the truth.
Obviously, it was Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze who kicked off the trend back in 1987 in "Dirty Dancing." And they weren't the only ones.
We've spotted planking in a number of recent movies from "The Smurfs" to "Green Lantern." Oh, and Edward Cullen? Yeah, he's been known to plank in a certain meadow here and there.
Look, we get that some of these characters may not have known what they were doing, but an accidental plank is still a plank, right?
It takes a certain kind of magic to excel as an actor, dancer and country singer in Hollywood. And Julianne Hough -- "Dancing With the Stars" champion and star of the upcoming "Footloose" remake -- developed her hocus pocus overseas, believe it or not, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The cast of the "Harry Potter" franchise has been such an ubiquitous presence in our lives that it's hard to believe nearly 10 (count 'em, 10!) years have gone by since we first met Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." The trio were just wide-eyed schoolkids and we've watched them blossom into three attractive and talented actors.
We've heard how they got their Harry Potter jobs over and over again -- how Grint filmed himself rapping to convince producers he was Ron Weasley, that Watson was recommended by her acting teacher and Radcliffe (a veteran of BBC productions) needed to overcome his parents to try for the part.

Based, as they are, on the event-filled conclusion of the "Harry Potter" series, the upcoming adaptations of "Deathly Hallows" are sure to be filled with awesome moments, like [SPOILER], and [SPOILER], and when [OMG SPOILER].
But in getting excited for the big finish, let's not forget that the six previous "Potter" movies have been chock full of great moments, so much so that it would be hard for anyone other than a master magician to narrow it down to nine. Good thing we brought our robe and wizard hat. Get More »
