Billboard reports that actress Rita Wilson has announced she’s becoming a singer, releasing her first album this February.
Earlier this week, Tom Hanks’ wife popped in to the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Music Conference and discussed her upcoming debut album, titled "AM/FM."
Wilson, 55, told the conference crowd she’s “always felt more comfortable with music than with acting,” and shared that her album is inspired by childhood memories. "We used to sit in the back seat of our parent's car, hear songs on the AM radio and sing along," Rita said of her Los Angeles upbringing.
Team Bartowski is back in business for what NBC has promised is the final season of “Chuck.” Last night’s premiere picked up with the nearly wholesale reboot that ended season four.
Just to catch up: Chuck and Sarah are married. The team has been fired by the CIA and has decided to branch out on its own as freelance spies. Chuck’s sister knows about the intersect, but Chuck doesn’t have the intersect anymore. Morgan does.
So we’re jumping into a completely new dynamic among the characters, but I’m not so sure it works. We’ll get back to that later.
On Friday's series premiere of "Grimm," we were introduced to our second take on fairy tales in less than a week's time, this one a little more of a police procedural.
Nick Burkhardt is a detective who suddenly finds himself having inherited the power to see certain people's "true selves": creatures from Grimm fairy tales.
This first episode saw him pursuing a monstrous predator who went after women and young girls wearing red (gee, I wonder which fairy tale that's about?).
Today's news you might've missed:
Tonya Cooley, whom you may remember originally from "The Real World: Chicago" and subsequently from "The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins," is suing MTV and production company Bunim/Murray for alleged sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination and sexual assault, among other claims.
In a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on October 27, Cooley also cites her fellow "Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins" cast members Kenneth Santucci and Evan Starkman.
Cooley alleges that while filming the reality show in Phuket, Thailand in 2009, male contestants, including Evan and Kenneth, "forcibly removed female cast members' bathing suits,"; inappropriately touched female cast members even though the women stated the physical contact wasn't welcome; and called the female cast members derogatory terms relating to their gender, among other allegations.
Right after an earthquake and tsunami hit Japan in the spring, band Linkin Park began to raise money through the non-profit Music for Relief, which went to the work Save the Children was doing in Japan.
Now, six months following the devastation, Linkin Park was back in the country to see how those donations have helped kids who have lost so much.
In the northeastern town of Ishinomaki, the musicians visited an elementary school where the students had been able to practice emergency drills with red, quilted disaster hoods provided by Save the Children. The hoods, as seen in a travelogue the band filmed, are cushioned to protect the kids' heads, and are also fire-proof. In addition, the children at the elementary school have received backpacks and school supplies.
