'Parenthood': Think twice before eating that candy

I'm starting to think that a few of the Bravermans need to get their ears checked.  Was it just me, or did some of the family members seemingly forget how to listen during last night's episode?

Let’s start with Zeek wanting to take Max on a fishing trip. I think any kid with Zeek on a camping trip would be a problem, but Zeek with Max? Definitely problematic.

Crosby tries to warn him, but Zeek is convinced Max will have no problem on the traditional Braverman manly hunter-gatherer camping trip. Grandpa Zeek is well-intentioned but not well-versed on Max’s Asperger’s, despite the handbook Kristina prepares for him. But men like Zeek don't read instruction manuals. He realizes he really doesn't understand what Adam and Kristina have been going through when Max has a meltdown.

Billy Joel responds to Elton's 'rehab' comments

Sir Elton John is not biting his tongue on what he really thinks about Billy Joel.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the 63-year-old proud papa dishes out what he calls “tough love.”

"At the end of the day, he's coasting," John says in the interview. "I always say, 'Billy, can't you write another song?' It's either fear or laziness. It upsets me. Billy's a conundrum.”

Hugh Jackman eats 6,000 calories a day for 'The Wolverine'

While most celebrities struggle to stay lean, Hugh Jackman is busy packing on the pounds. The actor has been ordered by director Darren Aronofsky to bulk up for the new Wolverine movie.

"Right now, I’m at 210," he tells the L.A. Times of his current weight, which is the result of an intense diet and workout regime. "It’s 6,000 calories a day," he says. "It’s rough."

Jackman, 42, was closer to 190 pounds when he made 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," but Aronofsky insisted he add muscle for the latest film.

'Fletch' to return to the big screen

Ace reporter Fletch will be snooping his way around the big screen again. Warner Bros. has announced that it is planning to reboot the popular '80s film franchise, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Chevy Chase starred in the original two "Fletch" movies, which were based on Gregory McDonald's mystery novels about investigative journalist I.M. Fletcher.

Filmmaker Kevin Smith tried for over a decade to revamp the franchise with an adaptation of "Fletch Won" — with everyone from Ben Affleck to Jason Lee to Joshua Jackson being eyed for the lead —but the project eventually fizzled out.

No word yet on who is being considered to headline the Warner Bros. film or when it will be released.

Who would you like to see play Fletch? Tell us in a comment below.
