Um, has Kelsey Grammer convinced everybody he's some kind of action star now or something? Seriously, did we miss that memo, Hollywood?

Questions and Answers With Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens has certainly matured on camera exponentially since her Disney Channel and "High School Musical" days. The 24-year-old actress took a walk on the wild side as a gun-toting criminal who wears a neon bikini in Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers" and now Hudgens is tackling tougher dramatic material in "The Frozen Ground," which opens in theaters on August 23.

The Scott Walker-directed movie chronicles the real-life 1980s Alaskan hunt for serial killer Robert Hansen, who stalked and killed between 17 and 21 young women and then buried them in the Alaskan wilderness. Hudgens plays Cindy Paulson, the only survivor of Hansen, played by John Cusack. Nicolas Cage stars as the detective trying to track Hansen down, and 50 Cent appears as Pimp Clate Johnson.

We caught up with Hudgens as she talked about getting to meet the real-life Paulson, what rating she thinks the MPAA would bestow upon her, the various substances she's been required to snort on camera for different films and if her family-film days are behind her. Get More »

5 Things Nicolas Cage Says We've Gotten Wrong About Him

Everyone knows the name Nicolas Cage, right?

It's one of those household few — like Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman and Sandra Bullock, for example — who even your 94-year-old great-grandma would recognize and has probably even seen in a movie or two. Better yet, chances are she could even spout off some errant knowledge about his off-camera life to boot, since some of the dude's private woes have become very public information.

But to hear Nicolas Cage talk, people, we've just got the guy all wrong, and he's ready to "Face/Off" with all the rumors once and for all.

Cage has now detailed the many, many public misgivings about him in a new interview with The Guardian, and as it turns out, we know nothing. NOTHING. Brace for imminent mind-blowage as we break down the five biggest things we've gotten wrong about Nic Cage ... according to Nic Cage. Get More »

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

Killing Season Millennium

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents. Get More »

The 13 Most Hilarious Google Movie Searches

Ah, Google. The greatest information superhighway, where most of us cruise on the daily, searching for intel only an absurdly complex, fast-acting algorithm can provide (unless you use Bing). We look for recipes, statistics, images, ourselves … pretty much anything and everything.

Google is a judgment-free zone, thus you can ask it whatever you'd like without fear or embarrassment. It's a mostly secret enterprise, as far as your personal search history is concerned. But ever since the search giant introduced the auto-fill drop-down function Google Instant, it's given us delicious insight into what others most commonly seek out around a subject.

Vulture made great use of this last week when it looked at what people most commonly asked about when it came to the Google love-fest "The Internship." It inspired us to look at a broader spectrum of Hollywood, plucking the very best/ most hilarious/ most absurd/ most depressing queries. Really, this list could go on forever ... Get More »
