  • He's been in exile for years, hunted by the government of the very country he saved from so many terrorist plots. But as these 20 new Yahoo TV exclusive photos hint, when real American hero Jack Bauer does finally resurface, he is, of course, trying to save the world yet again.

    Bauer (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Kiefer Sutherland) is looking uber-menacing in the "24: Live Another Day" pic above, and that's because… nah, that would be too spoilery to reveal, especially since viewers have been waiting four years for the series' return to primetime. Suffice it to say that Jack is facing off with a foe, and while it may look like his adversary has gotten the better of him, that's just the way Jack wants it to look.

    More details from "24: Live Another Day," the 12-hour revival that premieres on Fox with back-to-back episodes on May 5:

  • PARKS AND RECREATION -- Moving Up Episode 621/622 -- Pictured: Michelle Obama as Herself -- (Photo by: Screengrab/NBC)

    From tonight's "Parks and Recreation" finale to an upcoming edition of "Nashville," Michelle Obama seems to be the go-to TV guest star these days. But why?

    The real question is, who's really benefiting here, especially with May sweeps nearly upon us? Is it the networks? The White House?

    Is it us?

    It's unclear how Obama will amuse us on "Parks and Rec," though she continues a guest-starring tradition pioneered by John McCain and Joe Biden. The giggles seem more likely to fly over on "Nashville," where Obama and Kellie Pickler will band together with Connie Britton to save the teen community center throw a charity concert for Fort Campbell.

    FLOTUS's past visits to TV — on shows such as "The Biggest Loser," "Sesame Street," "iCarly," and "Iron Chef America" — all have garnered plenty of buzz, both good and bad... which, really, in this business, is just good under a different name. After all,

  • First "Friends," now "Will & Grace." Evidently, TV reunions are like the word "fetch" -- they're never going to happen. And yet we get so psyched about them, even when they're only rumours!

    Earlier this week, Courteney Cox told David Letterman that a "Friends" reunion was "never going to happen," and only a day later, a representative for NBC shot down rumours about a "Will & Grace" reunion, confirming that "there are no talks right now."

    To add fuel to the rumour mill fire, '80s kids were given a beacon of hope on April 22 when "Goonies" director Richard Donner told TMZ a sequel to the 1985 original was in the works, and that "of course" Stephen Spielberg is going to be involved with it. (Which is exciting because a Spielberg-involved follow-up to an iconic '80s film has never gone wrong as we all learned from "Indiana Jones and the Shia LaBeouf.")

    On top of that, a "Farscape" movie is reportedly in the works -- even though ten years ago, "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars" offered all

    Avril Lavigne has been taking a ton of heat from her Japanese-themed "Hello Kitty" video, which was leaked on Wednesday. Some have called it racist, while others have said it's just plain terrible.

    Lavigne has apparently seen the criticism — or at least heard of the complaints — and has fired back about the alleged racism in the clip, which features the "Skater Boi" singer playfully dancing with four identically dressed Harajuku Girls, chowing down on sushi, and drinking sake.

    We reached out to a few people affiliated with the Japanese Culture Center in Chicago to get their take on the clip. Neither thought it was racist, but one was slightly

  • Last weekend on "Britain's Got Talent," Darcy Oake wowed the judges with his dove magic act (it now has more than 10 million views on YouTube). But he was soon called out by U.K. viewers for being too Canadian and too professional for the British talent show. However, the 26-year-old illusionist from Winnipeg is not letting a little controversy get in the way of his "crazy amazing" experience.

    "The fact that I'm not from the U.K., that doesn't bother me. The people that won last year were from Hungary. People come from all over the world to do that show because of its influence," Oake told Yahoo Canada Celebrity on Thursday. "The professional thing, I understand, I get it. But it's never been pitched as a show for amateurs. If only people who have never performed went and auditioned for the show, what kind of show would it be? I feel like if it went horrendously wrong, no one would be saying that."

    While Oake waits with the rest of us to find out if he will make the next round of

  • Minnie Driver hit back at criticism over her amazing bikini body. Copyright [Splash]

    By Chris Smith

    She briefly quit Twitter after coming under fire by online trolls.

    But now Minnie Driver has silenced those who cruelly critiqued her bikini body on the social networking site – by posting a very raunchy naked picture of herself.

    The 44-year-old actress shared a snap of a recent photshoot in Allure magazine in which she posed totally starkers alongside Kristen Bell.

    She captioned the picture: “If you want people to stop taking about how you look in a bikini, let them see you naked. It tends to shut them up:)”


    Good work Minnie, well done.

    The stunning actress found herself a target of trolls earlier this month after she was snapped by paps while holidaying with her family.

    Upset by the cruel comments the images garnered (we still have no idea why they were sent in the first place), Minnie

  • Justin Bieber visiting the Yasukuni Shrine. (Instagram/Getty Images)
    Justin Bieber isn't helping international relations. The 20-year-old Canadian crooner's tourist adventures have caused upset... again.

    The latest incident occurred during a trip to Tokyo, where he visited the Yasukuni Shrine, posting a photo of his visit on Instagram. However, the memorial is controversial because, in addition to honoring 2.5 million men, women, and children who lost their lives during combat, 14 war criminals are buried there. For many in China, Korea, and other Asian nations, the shrine represents the worst of Japan's imperial militarism, and visitors of it are thought to have a lack of understanding of its history.

    After comments appeared on the photo, many from Beliebers in China, the "Boyfriend" singer deleted the image and posted a new one of a headline from Time magazine detailing his visit to the shrine.

    "While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine," he wrote. "I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer.

  • Kaley Cuoco debuts new bob (Instagram)
    Kaley Cuoco's going short and sassy for spring.
     
    "The Big Bang Theory" star debuted a drastic new look on Wednesday, and posted several shots of her stylish 'do on Instagram.
     
    "Here we go!" the 28-year-old actress captioned the below photo, in which she can be seen sitting in stylist Christine Symonds's chair at the Andy Lecompte salon in West Hollywood, California.

    In March, Cuoco tricked fans (and a few media outlets) when she attended the Kids' Choice Awards sporting a messy bun, even though she had jokingly uploaded a photo which looked like she was going in for a serious cut prior to hitting the red carpet. Clearly, Kaley liked what she saw!

    "Cut,color, joy, joy,joy !!! Thank u @clsymonds and Vanessa @andylecomptesalon," she wrote along with the close-up pic.

    "Thanks to this little gem for giving me this killer haircut !!!" she captioned this next photo.

    What do you think of Kaley's new bob?

  • Even though Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie have been divorced for over 10 years, the two still remain close. In a recent interview with the website Your Tango, Billy Bob was asked if he and Angelina still keep in touch, and he said, "Oh of course, yeah. She's amazing, amazing. She's got so much energy and so much goodness in her, and we check in on each other all the time. She makes sure I'm doing okay. I make sure she's doing okay."

    Billy Bob and Angelina met in 1999 on the set of the film "Pushing Tin" and were married a year later. They separated after only two years and finalized their divorce in 2003. But while they were together, Billy Bob and Angelina were constantly in the headlines for being one of Hollywood's most talked about couples. What's more, the two had a twenty-year age difference,  they wore lockets filled with each other's blood, and they were extremely affectionate on the red carpet.

    Looking back at their marriage, the actor told "Nightline" in 2012 why he

  • Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison (Stefanie Keenan/Getty Images)Jodie Foster is a married woman. The two-time Academy Award-winning actress and her girlfriend of almost a year, Alexandra Hedison, wed over the weekend.

    Foster's rep confirmed the news to Yahoo on Wednesday.

    Hedison, 44, a photographer and former actress, is best known for her role in Showtime's "The L Word." She previously dated Ellen DeGeneres more than a decade ago.

    Foster was romantically involved for many years with Cydney Bernard, with whom she shares two sons, Charles, 16, and Kit, 13. The two separated in 2008.

    Foster came out during a rambling, yet passionate, speech at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2013, as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.

    "I'm just going to put it out there, loud and proud, right? I am… single. I'm kidding," she joked.

    She then got serious:"There is no way I could ever stand here without acknowledging one of the deepest loves of my life, my heroic co-parent, my ex-partner in love but righteous soul sister in life,
