Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have assembled a Murderer's Row of comedy heavy-hitters to provide cameos as themselves — including Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Emma Watson and Rihanna — in their new apocalyptic satire, "This is the End."
That's a buncha muncha cruncha cameos, but how do they stack up among the greatest ever perpetrated? We're counting down 35 surprise appearances in movies that pleased and shocked us ... and left us wanting more. Get More »
What makes a Hollywood face "scary"?
The ways to get on the following list are indeed diverse. You could have made an entire career off of having a naturally horrifying face (reluctantly looking at you, Mr. Englund). You could have a nightmare-inducing mugshot floating on the internet forever (hi, Mr. Nolte). You could even have a relatively friendly face that still is kind of ... well ... noteworthy (Buscemi). One thing's for sure: Each and every person on this list is beautiful on the inside, and that's all that matters.
Having said that, let's talk about how scary their faces are. Look within.
Most of us understand that as we age, it's important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Go for a jog (or a "yog" if you're Ron Burgundy) once in a while. Maybe opt for a salad sometimes instead of a few slices of pizza. If you work at a desk, perhaps you make sure you walk around your office for five minutes every hour. Feel that burn.
Then there are others who take that notion to extreme lengths, who hear "maintain a healthy and active lifestyle" and think "lift enough weights every day of my life to tear a horse in half with my bare hands and have a laughing fit in its blood." 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 »
By now you've probably seen the ad for Sylvester Stallone's "Bullet to the Head" in which the following exchange happens:
[Stallone murders a bad guy.]
Stallone sidekick (aghast): "You don't just kill a guy like that!"
Stallone (satisfied): "I just did."
This type of scene is ubiquitous in the Stallone canon; either a nobody supporting character serves up an alley-oop that Stallone confidently finishes (not unlike the above exchange) or Stallone delivers the gold by himself. Either way, we're all winners. Get More »
This week: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and more aging action heroes are back to blow things up in the explosive "The Expendables 2."
Also new this week is a collection of Quentin Tarantino movies handpicked by the filmmaker himself, the Blu-ray debut of 1975's "Zorro" starring Alain Delon and a Criterion Collection edition of the formerly maligned/recently praised 1980 Western "Heaven's Gate." Get More »

UPDATE: Okay, so maybe Nicolas Cage isn't going to be in "Expendables 3," as Sylvester Stallone has told Deadline that previous reports of the "Ghost Rider" star's involvement in the action sequel are false.
The Facebook page that had posted the news of Cage's casting is apparently run by a fan and is not Stallone's own "official" page.
Consider this to be merely a minor setback, as we don't see how Nicolas Cage could not eventually be in "Expendables 3." Stay tuned. Get More »
Certain members of the "Expendables" gang are pimping their other wares this week.
Earlier today, Arnold Schwarzenegger took "The Last Stand" in the first look at Kim Jee-woon's upcoming action thriller. Now, Arnold's pal Sylvester Stallone is out to prove that old dudes do it best in the trailer for "Bullet to the Head." Get More »
The boys are back, and this time they brought some big reinforcements as "The Expendables 2" torpedoes its way into theaters.
Sylvester Stallone's mercenary-for-hire Barney Ross has the old (in some cases very old) team from the first film including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews. Lending him an assist this time around are his former Planet Hollywood compatriots Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with "Delta Force" captain Chuck Norris and "Hunger Games" heartthrob Liam Hemsworth, all to do battle against Jean-Claude Van Damme. It's a veritable action lover's wet dream! Get More »
