OK, there've been a ton of releases lately that we need to discuss, because quite honestly, they are a hoot.

Vanessa Williams, A Capitol Fourth

Of all the leading men in the multimedia career of Vanessa Williams, Kevin Clash is — by far — the least recognized.

How can people in the movie ...

Question: How can people in the movie business have the same name? Like there's a director called Morgan Freeman as well as an actor; isn't there some kind of rule that one of them has to change his name?

I put in a call to the Directors Guild of America, and they have a similar rule: As long as a DGA member is active (which does read more

Soul boasts seven nominations for the 35th NAACP Image Awards (airing March 11 on Fox).

"As soon as I met all the cast members in the audition process," Malinda says, "I told everybody, 'Y'all know we got a hit, right? Don't play.' I mean, really, from the door. The first two episodes were so incredibly written, and I knew the caliber of actors that were representing these characters. I knew we were going to be a hit." "Even though Malinda saw read more
