Before the 1990s, there was a stretch of time -- roughly 10 years or so -- we refer to as "the '80s." It was, like, this totally rad era in which a geriatric Rodney Dangerfield could be a party animal, coke was a problem and New Coke was an even gnarlier problem. And the only rule for your hair was that it had to appear hilarious to anyone not living in the '80s.
With the jukebox broadway musical "Rock of Ages" coming to theaters, we say it's time to grab a pogo ball and hop our way through the historical hallway of hairstyles, searching for what made '80s yearbooks into the comedy treasure chests they've become.
Stop that clock! Looks like Jack Bauer will remain frozen in time when it comes to his big screen debut. News broke yesterday that the "24" movie won't be filming this spring after all. Last we heard, it was set to start in late March, which you might notice is creeping up on us like one of Bauer's baddies.
One Fox representative told The Wrap, "We're still working on a script, and hope to make [it] when Kiefer [Sutherland] next has time… But this all came down to timing, and seven weeks is not enough time to prep a movie like this." However, The Wrap and Deadline have more gossip-y tidbits about the BTS drama. Get More »
Golden Globe winner Martin Sheen. Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo. "The Matrix" siren Carrie-Anne Moss. "Chuck" star Yvonne Strahovski. Seth Green. Freddie Prinze Jr. Tricia Helfer. It's like a Who's Who of cool. But these aren't the stars of Hollywood's next blockbuster -- they're just a few of the big names lending their talents to the biggest video game release of the month, "Mass Effect 3."

Then check out our list of the nine biggest stars to lend their voice talents to video games. Get More »
Jack Bauer himself has confirmed that the "24" movie will finally start rolling in March or April of this year. Kiefer Sutherland, who was most recently seen in the magnificent "Melancholia," revealed the news at a Television Critics Association event for his new show "Touch."
2011 was the year of "24" hints, with countless news stories following the ups and downs of the movie's development as closely as Jack Bauer and his Counter Terrorism Unit worked to thwart terrorists. Of course, there are still plenty of details about the movie that haven't been revealed, although hopefully we won't have to resort to any of Bauer's methods to extract info about the project.

The past few years haven't been kind to "Lethal Weapon" star and "Passion of the Christ" director Mel Gibson. Or, rather, he hasn't been so kind to them.
Either way, Gibson isn't letting personal problems or his public persona stand in the way of an acting career. He's garnered high praise for his latest film "The Beaver," which recently debuted in American theaters, and now he's riding the wave, already honing in on his next project: the heist comedy, "Sleight of Hand."
The crime flick will star Gibson alongside Kiefer Sutherland (who is racking up projects at Cannes like nobody's business), famed French actor Gerard Depardieu, Thomas Jane (HBO's "Hung") and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jon Lovitz. The movie revolves around a group of burglars in Paris who accidently steal a rare coin belonging to a local gangster. Hijinks inevitably ensue. Get More »
The only thing more magical than the black tie galas, prestigious film screenings and the star-studded red carpet events that are currently occupying the French town of Cannes, is the dealmaking for the future. Pairing stars for neatly-packaged projects meant to whet the appetite of potential buyers -- it's like a week long cocktail party where movies are the appetizers.
The latest cinematic hors d'oeuvre of interest is as romantic a concept as the Cannes Film Festival itself: Kiefer Sutherland and Kate Bosworth will play two sides of a budding couple in "Fairytale in New York," which Hollywood Reporter explains is looking for a buyer at the fest. Get More »
France's Cannes Film Festival has officially begun, and that means glamour, big premieres, gorgeous women in bikinis on yachts, and producers negotiating deals for oddball movies on said yachts.
One such cult-y sounding flick trying to come to life at the festival is a just-announced action-comedy starring none other than TV's Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland.
According to THR Sutherland will headline "Sleight of Hand," a caper film "which centers on a crew of small-time crooks in Paris who inadvertently end up possessing a rare gold coin belonging to a notorious French gangster." Get More »
Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer was an expert at countering terrorism, but now we're counting the days until Jack can blast his way onto the big screen, and we're locking on a target year of 2012!
Over the nine years the Fox series "24" ran, Bauer was known to outright torture his suspects to prevent the world from blowing up on numerous occasions, but a film based on the series has had a torturous journey of its own, including a script by Billy Ray which was rejected and executive producer Howard Gordon walked off the project.

Kiefer Sutherland may have played a no-nonsense, highly effective operative in the cult series "24," but his ability to take this hit to the big screen remains uncertain.
Just yesterday, good old Jack Bauer dropped by "The View" and told the ladies at the table that the much anticipated "24" movie will release in 2012.
Color us surprised. Get More »
Jack Bauer has never stayed dead for very long.
It looked like the "24" movie was destined to wallow in development hell after the script by Billy Ray ("Breach") was rejected by 20th Century Fox late last year. Producer Howard Gordon, who is no longer attached to the project, said Ray's script wasn't "strong enough or compelling enough." And a Jack Bauer adventure definitely needs to be "strong" and "compelling."
However, star Kiefer Sutherland is optimistic that the challenge of finding the right script will be met and conquered. And soon. Get More »
