How do you cap off a hilarious, action-packed trilogy like Kung Fu Panda?

Well, Rebel Wilson is a good start!

The MTV Movie Awards host showed off her vocal talents in Pitch Perfect, and now she's bringing them to the far east for Kung Fu Panda 3!

We can't wait to see hear her square off against Jack Black! What an even matchup that will be!

Also joining the sequel's cast are Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston and Hannibal's Mads Mikkelson.

Hmm, we wonder if they'll be playing the bad guys…

Bradley Cooper Is Comedy's Best Man At The Critics' Choice Awards!

It seems like it's going to be a sweep for Silver Linings Playbook!

And rightfully so!

Just moments after his co-star Jennifer Lawrence won her SECOND Critics' Choice Award, Bradley Cooper won for Best Actor In A Comedy.

He beat out Jack Black for Bernie, Paul Rudd for This is 40, Channing Tatum in 21 Jump Street, and Mark Wahlberg for Ted, so that was some pretty stiff competition!

But, Brad walked away with the big surprise! Let's toast to your talent and hawtness, Mr. Cooper!

Eddie Murphy Tops List Of Most Overpaid Actors

Eddie Murphy Tops List Of Most Overpaid Actors

Is Eddie Murphy the most overpaid actor in Hollywood working today?

Forbes says yes! They've compiled a short list of the movie stars that just aren't worth their weight in gold.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see who else made the top five!

Of course, this is no judgment on the quality of the acting or the entertainment potential of these stars. It's purely a financial metric.

Forbes developed the list by comparing the gross of movies the actors starred in with their paychecks. According to their calculations, Eddie Murphy movies bring in only $2.30 for every dollar he is paid.

But is he really overpaid? Sure, Eddie gets millions per movie, but think of how much money you save on other actors when he plays five roles per film! They totally haven't thought this one through!
