Warner Bros. is doing their part to make sure a new generation also grows up with “Yogi Bear.”
The beloved animated mammal, originally created by Hanna-Barbera back in 1958, has received a live action, 3-D makeover, and will soon be chasing down a pic-a-nic basket on a big screen near you.
Dan Aykroyd lends his voice to “Yogi” while music sensation Justin Timberlake breathes life into Yogi’s loyal sidekick, “Boo-Boo.” As for the film’s live action stars, Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, T.J. Miller and Nathan Corddry lead the way. The unstoppable antics of the world’s least average bear hit theaters nationwide right in time for Christmas.
Much like his "Mad Men" character Don Draper, Jon Hamm isn't exactly a fan of marriage. Happily committed to actress Jennifer Westfeldt, 40, since 1997, Hamm says he has no plans to take a walk down the aisle.
"I don't have the marriage chip, and neither of us have the greatest examples of marriages in our families," 39-year-old Hamm, whose parents divorced when he was two, tells Sunday's Parade magazine. "But Jen is the love of my life, and we've already been together four times longer than my parents were married."
Though the couple, who met while performing in the off-Broadway play "Lipschtick," are crazy in love, Hamm confesses he definitely doesn't have babies on the brain.
"I like kids but I also like the option to close the door," he explains. "Becoming a parent is a whole other life, and it doesn't stop."
TGIF, Marquee readers.
"The Showbiz Tonight" staff just can't stop talking about the premiere episode of “Jersey Shore." Sammi and Ronnie - who were dating last season - are apparently off again, everyone seems to hate Angelina and all the kids seem to be soaking up the alcohol just fine in Miami!
"Showbiz Tonight’s" Associate Producer, Jessica Como said she was “underwhelmed by the season premiere but thinks it will get better”, but Production Assistant Anisa Husain loved it and can't wait for more episodes.
Jennifer Aniston’s next rom-dramadey (it’s romantic, it’s funny, and it’s dramatic all at the same time) seems to be art imitating the tabloid version of her life. In “The Switch,” out in August, Aniston stars as a single, 40-year-old woman who uses a sperm donor to get pregnant.
But when Jay Leno asked Aniston if she would ever consider doing the same – since, you know, she’s always pregnant or thinking about having a baby, depending on which celebrity weekly you read – Aniston joked, "Geez, that question has never been asked to me. Do I go to, like, the yellow pages?"
Because Leno is always…out for laughs, we suppose, he continued to press the topic, inquiring how, exactly, one would use a sperm bank to get pregnant.
Paige Miles understands how difficult it was for Ellen DeGeneres to dole out criticism to “American Idol” contestants.
“I know it was hard for her to be hard on us because she knows what it’s like to be on the other side, to be booed and to be cheered on to an encore,” said Miles, who finished 11th last season on “Idol.”
“She knows what it is like to be on both ends of the spectrum, so it was hard to chew us up like that," Miles said. "I think that was probably one of the biggest parts that she wasn’t quite ready for.”
You can take the cast away from the "Shore," but … well, you know the rest.
As it turns out, New Jersey is not vital to “Jersey Shore’s” success. Despite early speculation that moving Snooki and the crew to Miami, Florida, wouldn’t turn out well, they’re still the same old fist-pumpers we fell in love with last season.
(Update, 4:50 p.m.: Yeah, it looks like New Jersey is definitely not vital to this show's success. Last night's episode had 5.3 million viewers for the second season's debut, and the episode marks MTV's best season premiere rating in more than seven years, according to the network.)
