  • Bryan Cranston is a silver fox at the ‘Need for Speed’ premiere

    We're so used to seeing Bryan Cranston bald that it's always a shock when he shows up anywhere with hair. But his appearance at the "Need for Speed" premiere on Tuesday was doubly shocking. Not only did he sport a full head of hair, but he was also a silver fox!

    While supporting his "Breaking Bad" co-star Aaron Paul's new film, 58-year-old Cranston gave Anderson Cooper a run for his money. Cranston, who wore his natural brown hair for his appearance on Broadway's "All The Way" opening night, sported slicked-back silver locks to the afterparty of the "Need for Speed" premiere at Jimmy at the James Hotel in New York City.

    What gives? According to the Daily Mail, Cranston had come directly from the set of "All The Way," in which he plays Lyndon B. Johnson, a former (gray-haired) U.S. president. Cranston had time to change his suit but not his hair.

    "All the Way," which opened on March 6, marks the actor's Broadway debut. The play revolves around Johnson's first year as president in 1963

  • Lorde fires back at radio DJ over inappropriate Taylor Swift questions

    When it comes to LGBT rights, Lorde is pure heroine.

    The "Royals" singer has been hanging out a lot with Taylor Swift lately, but the teen songstress wasn't impressed when an Australian radio DJ suggested earlier this week that they might be more than friends. Lorde was being interviewed on KIIS 1065's " Kyle & Jackie Show" when host Kyle Sandilands suggested that she and Swift might be lesbians.

    "I see your guys' pictures everywhere. Are you guys, like, uh, are you together now?" he asked during the interview, before adding, "Not together as in lesbians. I'm not talking about 'Ellen together.' I'm talking about, like, you guys are friendly, right?"

    But Lorde was not about to answer his question before taking issue with how he was asking it.

    "What do you mean you're not talking about 'Ellen together?'" the 17-year-old New Zealander asked. "Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're trying to say?"

    Sandilands denied it and then tried to change tack, asking if they

  • Elisabeth Moss looks back on her ‘horrible’ marriage to Fred Armisen

    New York Magazine

    Elisabeth Moss has never been particularly reserved about her short-lived marriage to comedian Fred Armisen. In 2012, she famously said of the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member, "He's so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person." Now, she's eviscerating her ex-husband once again.

    Ahead of the April premiere of the seventh and last season of "Mad Men," Moss spoke to New York magazine about her two-year relationship with Armisen, which ended in 2010.

    “Looking back, I feel like I was really young, and at the time I didn’t think that I was that young,” the 31-year-old actress said. “It was extremely traumatic and awful and horrible."

  • Jason Priestley wins at Canadian Screen Awards: ‘I fought very hard for this’

    Jason Priestley has proved that bad guys finish first. The 44-year-old Vancouver native won best comedy actor at the Canadian Screen Awards Sunday night for his role as a crooked car salesman on the HBO Canada sitcom "Call Me Fitz."

    Accepting his award, Priestley revealed that it took awhile for him to shake his famous alter ego, Brandon Walsh — better known as "Beverly Hills 90210's" resident nice guy.

    “I fought very hard for this because I had to, given the baggage that I’ve had to carry in my career,” Priestley said on stage. “Being an all-American nice guy, I wasn’t obviously the first choice to play a character like Richard Fitzpatrick, so I had to go in and fight for the role, and luckily for me I was able to fight hard enough to win the role.”

    As a young star on "90210," Priestley didn't win many awards, though he was nominated for best actor at the Golden Globes in 1992 and 1995. On Sunday night, "Call Me Fitz," now in its fourth season, also won best TV comedy and best

  • Viggo Mortensen and David Cronenberg share a kiss at the Canadian Screen Awards

    David Cronenberg was the biggest winner at the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards. Not only was he honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award, but the famous film director also got a kiss on the lips from muse Viggo Mortensen.

    On Sunday night, the 55-year-old "Lord of the Rings" star took the stage at Toronto's Sony Centre for the Performing Arts to present "the finest director and the sanest man I know" with the award. Handing the trophy to Cronenberg (after jokingly passing him a Montreal Canadiens flag first), the duo shared a smooch.

    "Mainstream movie business people, much as they might praise him from time to time, seem very reluctant to reward him officially," Mortensen said of Cronenberg, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The actor has previously worked with Cronenberg on three movies: "A History of Violence," "Eastern Promises," and "A Dangerous Method."

    "I can understand that because David basically is not one of them," Mortensen continued. "And I think they know it — a fact

  • Watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt recreate ‘David After Dentist’

    How does Joseph Gordon-Levitt look after a visit to the dentist? Not like Don Jon, that's for sure.

    For Jimmy Kimmel's annual After the Oscars special this past weekend, the 33-year-old "Don Jon" star was tasked with playing the star of the "David After Dentist" YouTube video in a spoof clip that turned famous YouTube clips into film trailers.

    The "Jimmy Kimmel Live" host aired the video, entitled "David After Dentist Double Rainbow Oh My God in 3-D," on Sunday, but this week he couldn't resist releasing Gordon-Levitt's full performance.

    "Most actors would have shown up, buzzed through the lines and be done with it," the video caption explained. "But Joseph memorized the entire David After Dentist video - for no reason. We didn't ask him to and most of it wasn't in the script."

    In the video the actor even wears a navy blue Florida football shirt like David, and his mouth is full of fake teeth. According to Kimmel, Gordon-Levitt didn't use any cue cards and wasn't watching the video

  • See the Osbournes in 1987 vintage photo

    It's been 12 years since "The Osbournes" premiered, so what better time to remind ourselves why they are our favourite family?

    Before "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," "The Osbournes" offered a window into celebrity family life -- and we fell in love. Shortly after the series premiered in 2002, it became the most-viewed show on the channel. So, we were sad to see them go when it got cancelled in 2005.

    If there's one thing we learned from the show's four seasons, it was that the family had a relationship like no other -- and a vintage photo from 1987 perfectly illustrates that dynamic.

    In the photo, the family is seen posing in what appears to be their living room. Ozzy holds up a purple balloon which seems to have caught the attention of adorable baby Jack. Meanwhile, Sharon and daughter Aimee try to quiet a fussing Kelly. Sound about right?

    Though Aimee chose not to appear in the series, there was always the air of maturity around the Osbournes'

  • Matt Dusk performs jazz versions of Drake, Robin Thicke and Serena Ryder songs

    Being nominated for a Juno is celebration enough, but Matt Dusk has given a select few nominees an added bonus: a jazzy mash-up of their hit songs.

    The Toronto native and his Max River Band (who are themselves nominated for Best Vocal Jazz Album) published a video on Wednesday of their mash-up of Drake's "Hold On, We're Hoing Home," Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," Classified's "Inner Ninja" and Serena Ryder's "What I Wouldn't Do."

    The video shows the singer and his band suited up at the Toronto's Verge Music Lab and performing a medley of his own song "All the Way" as well as the hits mentioned above. The recording appears to have been made last month, judging by a tweet Dusk posted on Feb. 28:

    The 2014 Juno Awards will be broadcast live from Winnipeg's MTS Centre on March 30 at 8 p.m. on CTV. Drake is nominated for three awards, including Album of the Year, Artist of the

  • Stars have fun with a Martin Short cardboard cutout at the Canadian Screen Awards

    Martin Short was manhandled at the Canadian Screen Awards this week — and he wasn't even there!

    The 63-year-old comedian is set to host the CSA broadcast this Sunday, but ahead of the big show, a number of trophies were presented at Toronto's Sheraton Centre to some of Hollywood North's small screen stars. And despite Short's absence, he got some red carpet love on Tuesday.

    ET Canada presenter Cheryl Hickey bench-pressed a cardboard cutout of the Hamilton native, while Helga Stephenson, CEO of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television, gave him a kiss and a squeeze.

    Inside the gala, comedian Steve Patterson presented 47 awards in the categories of News & Sports, Documentary, Lifestyle, Reality and Digital Media. On Wednesday, he handed out the next 43 trophies in the Drama, Children’s or Youth, Comedy and Variety categories.

    The biggest winner was Space's "Orphan Black" (best direction, best writing, best supporting actors) and Global's "Bomb Girls" (costume design, casting),

    Thirty-four years after "Airplane!" flew into theaters, the reunion has landed.
