‘The Voice’ found this Orange County singer after he’d spent years of paying his dues

Nine words and 17 seconds. That’s all Roderick Chambers had to sing of the Brian McKnight song he’d chosen for his blind audition on “The Voice” to convince judge Nick Jonas to hit his button, spin his chair, and change Chambers’ life forever. Now picture what that was like for Chambers: You just got something you’d dreamed about for years, but there’s still more than a minute of the song to sing, and millions of viewers are watching. Rock singer Tom Petty and his wife Dana arrive at the wor...

Child actor Hannah Marks grew up to write and star in ‘Banana Split.’ Oh, and she directs now, too

Hannah Marks turned 24 while directing her first feature film – though she says she looked even younger than that. “So definitely, in the first few days, people did not realize I was one of the directors,” Marks, who is now 26, says of “After Everything,” the 2018 release she co-wrote and co-directed with Joey Power. “Like, there were a few days of people asking me to get them coffee and stuff, and I was like, ‘I can’t; I’m busy. I gotta direct this thing,’” she says from her home in Los Angeles...

‘Zombieland’ Writers Reveal the Original Cameo Scene Written for Patrick Swayze

Bill Murray‘s appearance as himself in Zombieland is one of the greatest cameos of all time. It’s so perfectly Bill Murray, and the way it ends is truly worthy of a chef’s kiss. However, before the Ghostbusters star was confirmed to make the cameo, there were several other versions that were considered. In fact, the original draft had Patrick Swayze making the big cameo with a ton of references to his greatest movies from the 1980s, and some serious shade thrown at one of the favorites.  Zomb...

Sure, Jesse Eisenberg Would Ham It Up Again As Lex Luthor, Why Not?

Remember when Jesse Eisenberg had the time of his life playing a wacky goofball version of Lex Luthor? The type of Lex Luthor who puts a jar of piss on someone’s desk and then blows them up? The type of Lex Luthor who offers people Jolly Ranchers by forcing them into their mouths for some reason? Well, he’d be perfectly happy to do all that again. And honestly, we as a society should just let him at this point. Jesse Eisenberg made his supervillain debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice...
