Seth MacFarlane joins elite list of Oscar hosts-slash-nominees

Congratulations, Seth MacFarlane — you’ve just become a historical footnote.

The Family Guy creator was nominated for an Oscar this morning, when Ted‘s “Everybody Needs a Best Friend” snagged a spot in the Best Song category. That makes MacFarlane the sixth person in Oscar history to both host and be nominated for a competitive award during the same ceremony. More importantly, MacFarlane is the only person who’s managed to achieve this feat while serving as the event’s solo host.

Host-slash-nominees — hominees? — are more common at Emmys or the Tonys than the Oscars, since those other ceremonies are more likely to be hosted by performers who work in the same medium as the awards being given. It’s interesting, then, that only two years have passed since a same-night Oscar nominee last took the stage as host — in 2011, Best Actor contender James Franco tested his emcee skills with co-host Anne Hathaway at the 83rd annual awards. (And we all know how that turned out.)

Titus Welliver on 'Promised Land' fracking issue, his wife's death, working with Affleck and Damon

Titus Welliver may be known to Lost fans as the ominous “Man in Black,” and to others for tough-faced parts in Supernatural, Grimm, Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy, and Ben Affleck-directed movies Gone Baby Gone, The Town, and now Argo, but in Gus Van Sant’s new film Promised Land, he plays a regular guy store owner, a refreshing change for Welliver.

The movie, starring and co-written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski, has shone a spotlight on the continued debate surrounding hydraulic fracking – an environmentally controversial method of extracting natural gas from the ground that has prompted energy companies to buy drilling rights in rural towns such as the one at the heart of the movie. Damon plays Steve, a company guy who arrives in the small farming town with his co-worker Sue (Frances McDormand) to get landowners to sign off drilling rights to their land. Welliver plays Rob, the owner of an aptly-named local store called Rob’s Guns, Groceries, Guitars and Gas, who strikes up a flirtation with Sue, and is less overtly direct about his own stance on fracking.

Welliver, though, is very clear. He’s anti-fracking, but also sees the movie as a Frank Capra-esque look at the human relationships involved, more than politics. As well, in the midst of promoting the movie, the gravel-voiced actor has been dealing with the devastating loss of his wife, producer Elizabeth W. Alexander, who died from complications due to breast cancer in October. Now a single father to their 6-year-old daughter, and two sons from a previous relationship, Welliver spoke to EW frankly and emotionally about Alexander, her firm belief in him being involved in Promised Land even while she was sick, about the controversy over fracking, and working with both Damon and Affleck, hopefully for years to come.

Benedict Cumberbatch on playing a villain: Will 'Star Trek' feel his wrath?

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

'Three Men and a Baby' sequel: Tom Selleck's game! -- VIDEO

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 hints interest in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' lead role on Twitter

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

Your future is knocking at 'Monsters University' -- VIDEO

'Castle' star Nathan Fillion to host 2013 Writers Guild Awards in Los Angeles

When it comes to smarts, charm, and humor (not to mention a great, saucy smirk), Nathan Fillion is the total package.

Appropriately, then, the actor — who plays a writer on ABC’s Castle — has been tapped to host the 2013 Writers Guild Awards in February.

The Writers Guild of America, West announced Fillion, also the star of the long beloved defunct sci-fi western TV cult hit Firefly, as the ceremony’s host on Monday. The awards show will be held Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE.
