Scooby-Doo fans know Shaggy as the cartoon canine's grungy, munchie-crunchin' sidekick. How did Matthew Lillard get cast to play him in the movie? Well, he's previously done three other films with his good pal, Scooby star Freddie Prinze Jr. which didn't hurt. Plus, "there's only so many tall, skinny guys in Hollywood that are relatively funny," he says. "I happen to fit the bill."
Despite his lucky break, Lillard insists: "I took it really seriously. Honestly, I realized this is the biggest opportunity I've ever had. Shaggy is an icon that people all over the world have grown up with. Frankly, I didn't want to be the guy to screw it up!

His lead in Disney's historically dubious Squanto: A Warrior's Tale comes to mind. But for this 29-year-old native of Manitoba, Canada's Saulteaux tribe, one little film changed everything.

Our community has many more stories to tell."

After two weeks at No. 1, Fears dropped to fourth place with $13.5 million; its 17-day total stands at $84.5 million. The latest summer blockbuster to arrive DOA was the read more

When the fifth season of HBO's Sex and the City begins in mid-July, the same old question is sure to arise: Are the gal pals really just gay men trapped in the bodies of straight women? This go-round, however, we've finally come up with a definitive answer yes. In fact, with a little gender bending, the party girls become almost interchangeable with the playboys of Showtime's Queer as Folk. See for yourself.
