They share the face and the brandy-hued baritone, but you could never mistake Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch for the prickly savant of the BBC’s Baker Street — not only is the actor relentlessly polite he’s also never clubbed a cadaver in the name of scientific inquiry. The sleuth may have shined through for a moment last summer though when Cumberbatch showed a Holmesian impatience for unanswered questions and state secrets. “It’s achingly irritating,” Cumberbatch said when asked about the secrecy surrounding his role in this May’s Star Trek Into Darkness. “Believe me, I’d rather talk about the role and the fantastic story and all the things J.J. [Abrams] has come up with. And then everyone would be as excited about the film as I am. But then of course I think I would be on a phone call coming from J.J.’s office…” READ FULL STORY »

Holy Guttenberg, is another Three Men and a Baby sequel going to make it to the big screen?
Tom Selleck seems up to the challenge. The Blue Bloods star told the women of The Talk Thursday that he’s definitely discussed the possibility of making Three Men and a Bride with Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg, his co-stars from the 1987 flick that grossed more than $167 million domestically. “We’d love to get back together if they’ve got a good idea,” he said. “It seemed to be real, and then it disappeared. If they’re smart, they’ll do it.”
Actually, it hasn’t dematerialized. A Disney spokesman confirmed the project remains in early development. If the movie ever makes it past the talking stages, it would be the third in the franchise; the studio released a sequel in 1990 called Three Men and a Little Lady.
Here is the mustache talking about the possibility of a big screen reunion. (They wouldn’t still be roomies, would they?) READ FULL STORY »
Krysten Ritter is saucy, red-lipped and flaunts some take-no-prisoners sexuality on ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, and she’s hinted interest in taking on an even kinkier role: the lead in Focus Features-Universal’s adaptation of E.L. James’ novel Fifty Shades of Grey.
The 31-year-old actress, responding to a fan’s suggestion that she land the coveted part of Anastasia Steele, the lover of charming, S&M dabbler Christian Grey, tweeted on Wednesday, “Thanks! i would be down. .”
The rumor mill has been in full effect since it was announced that the movie, being written by screenwriter Kelly Marcel, and still sans a director, would be made. Author Bret Easton Ellis took to Twitter last August bemoaning not making the list of screenwriters being looked at to pen the script. Names such as Anne Hathaway and Ian Somerhalder have been flung around left and right as to who should embody amorous Anastasia and Christian.
At least, when it comes to Ritter, she’s already comfortable revealing her inner sex kitten.
Neither Focus Features nor Ritter’s publicist would comment on her tweet.

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994′s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006′s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.
Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface, the forthcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and why the cast members of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia aren’t as drunk as you might think. READ FULL STORY »

Best of 2012 (Behind the Scenes): Inside Joe Manganiello's five favorite 'Magic Mike' press tour moments
After the stripping numbers (which EW thoroughly dissected with the choreographer, costume designer, and music supervisor when the movie hit theaters last summer), what people probably remember most about Magic Mike is costar Joe Manganiello’s gloriously game, body roll-filled press tour. “There were a lot of moments where I was backstage right after whatever went down lookin’ at my publicist, Lisa [Perkins], like, I’m a classically-trained actor. What the f— am I doing? What are we doing? Please tell me I’m not insane and out of my mind. And Lisa would look at me and just go, ‘You are insane. You are out of your mind. But it’s working,’” Manganiello recalls, laughing. “It was one of those things where I’m either gonna look like the biggest a—hole that’s ever lived, or this is gonna be huge. There’s something magical that’s gonna happen, or I’m never gonna be allowed out of the house again. Thank god it went the way that we hoped.” Here, Manganiello takes us inside his highlights.
