Milla Jovovich Goes From Resident Evil To Resident Thespian By Joining Cast of Cymbeline!

Filed under: Film FlickersMilla Jovovich

milla

We can't remember if there are more Resident Evil films or Shakespearean plays, but now we don't have to, since Milla Jovovich has switched from one franchise to the other!

One Milla in her time plays many parts, forsooth!

Milla was just cast as Cymbeline's evil Queen of Hearts who tries to position her weak son on the throne at the expense of the King's daughter. Sounds like a good ole trip to Dr. Phil might solve that problem!

Plot! Intrigue! I-am-bic-pen-ta-me-ter! What's not to like?

This filmed Shakespearean adaptation is sure to be AH-Mazing as it has a too, too solid cast to disappoint! With co-stars like Ethan Hawke and Ed Harris, how can it fail? That is the question!

Family Feud Answer Gone Terribly HIGHlarious!

Filed under: TV NewsHIGHlarious

What's in a name?

Seriously, that's what Shakespeare Steve Harvey was asking, when he had the Fisher family try to come up with a boy's name beginning with the letter H.

Hmm, you'd think having a host that has a phone book listing of Harvey, Steve might provide a clue!

Ch-ch-check out the Fisher family's response (ABOVE)!

romeo and juliet

Can anyone say star-crossed seXXXy?!

Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad are heating up Broadway with their revival of the Shakespearian standard, Romeo and Juliet!

The Lord of the Rings star and two-time Tony nominated actress are serving us with an interracial take on the classic tale for the first Broadway production in 36 years!

And the pic (above) is a seductive preview for what's to come!

Oh la LOVE!

Rashad reveals:

“We’re using all the classical text, but it’s not necessarily in a classical setting. The setting is still kind of being talked about, but it is contemporary. Not jeans-and-shorts contemporary, but more of an extraction.”

We can't wait to see this ishh modernized for the stage!

Romeo and Juliet begins previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on August 24!

Nobody tells a story quite like Billy Shakespeare!

The world's greatest playwright has had his works adapted into movies HUNDREDS of times, including this summer's much anticipated flick Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Joss Whedon.

The early reviews are that this movie might be the GREATEST modern day treatment Shakespeare has ever gotten.

Did you know THESE old favorites were inspired by Shakespeare too???

Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick Brings The Bad As Hot Tempered Tybalt In LEAKED Romeo & Juliet Trailer!

Filed under: Film FlickersPerezTVGossip GirlEd Westwick

A Chuck Bass by any other name DOES smell as sweet deliciously SOUR! LOLz!!

The FIRST trailer for the upcoming screen adaptation of Romeo and Juliet has LEAKED all over the internetz, and we scooped up some of that Shaksperian liquid for your viewing pleasure!

Ch-ch-check out the rough footage (above)!

And yes… that IS Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick playing the hot headed Tybalt!

And judging from his performance as the often devilish Chuck on GG, we're sure he'll do justice to the iconic role.

SO excited for a new R&J!

We adored Baz Luhrman's modern twist and are quite partial to the 1968 version, so we can't WAIT to see another take on the classic tale, which is arguably the most famous love story EVER.
