• 'Duck Dynasty's' Si Robertson Says There's No Such Thing as an Atheist

    Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    NEW YORK — 'Duck Dynasty' star Si Robertson, who's known for being an outspoken Christian, told CP Voice earlier this week that as a Vietnam veteran he knows there's no such thing as an atheist because when people find themselves in a life-threatening situation they cry out to God, saying, "please help me." Discussing his new film "Faith of Our Fathers," which tells the story of two Vietnam veterans — one a devout Christian and the other a skeptic — Robertson explained that the bonds soldiers develop in wartime are "thicker than blood, because they've faced death together." "Whether you believe in Him or not, every time you write down the day's date you're saying He's here," continued Robertson, who reiterated his point that when it comes to circumstances of life and death, there aren't any atheists.

  • Dustin Hoffman talks decline of cinema and difficulties finding work

    Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    In an interview with The Independent, it’s hard to describe seven-time Academy Award nominee Dustin Hoffman as disgruntled when he says everything in such an effusive, mild-mannered way. He looks like he’s been living the good life, with his tanned complexion and the top buttons undone on his shirt. His enthusiasm to appear in and direct films is as strong as ever, which just makes his criticisms of the film industry all the more heartfelt. “I think right now television is the best that it’s ever been and I think that it’s the worst that film has ever been – in the 50 years that I’ve been doing it, it’s the worst,” he claims.

  • Variety exclusive: 'The View' May Cut Rosie Perez, Nicolle Wallace in Latest Revamp

    ABC executives are finalizing a plan to reboot "The View" next fall, for the second consecutive year, with a flurry of changes that could include the departure of at least one of its regular hosts, Variety has learned.

One or both women could be dropped because network execs are underwhelmed with their contributions to the show’s signature Hot Topics segment, which is expected to shift focus permanently toward more lighthearted celebrity fluff.

    Published: Mon, Jul 6, 2015

  • 'Mega Man' creator wants your help making a game-and-movie combo

    Published: Sun, Jul 5, 2015

    Mighty No. 9 might not even be out the door, but Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune is already looking for your help with a new project -- and this one is considerably more ambitious. His studio has launched crowdfunding for Red Ash, a project that combines both an open world action game (The Indelible Legend) and an anime movie from Studio4ºC (Magicicada). While both will share familiar characters and the theme of treasure hunting in a robot apocalypse, they'll otherwise be set in "parallel worlds" where the producers are free to tell whatever stories they want. As with Mighty, there are a lot of pledge options that sometimes let you directly shape either project. It'll take a minimum $25 pledge to get the game, or $24 for the movie; plunk down at least $499 and you can start creating achievements, naming items and more. Studio4ºC is even willing to accept fresh ideas for free, and it'll give you a small reward if your vision makes it into the anime.

  • Bo Duke tweets photo of Dylann Roof in protest after TV Land dumps ‘Dukes of Hazzard’

    Published: Thu, Jul 2, 2015

    In a 2001 documentary about the making of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” show creator Gy Waldron said the Confederate flag that appears on a car featured on the show — like the Good Ol’ Boys themselves — was never meanin’ no harm, The Washington Post reports. “Painting the Confederate flag on the roof of the car was done very innocently,” Waldron said, “because in the ’50s and ’60s it was very common to find Confederate flags painted on cars. There was never a political statement to be made by it. It was just part of the tradition. And once we had put it in there I saw no reason to bow to any pressure groups. We’re not making any statement regarding slavery or post-slavery or integration or anything like that. ”

  • Carrie Underwood Admits She Had Major C-Section Guilt After the Birth of Her Son

    Published: Wed, Jul 1, 2015

    While we're loving all of the adorable Instagram photos Carrie Underwood is sharing of hubby Mike Fisher and little Isaiah, says Redbook, the country music star recently revealed she's been dealing with a lot of guilt over the birth of her little baby boy . C-section guilt, to be more exact. And Carrie isn't alone. This guilt around having a Caesarean, or C-section shame, speaks to a growing cultural stigma as more women lean toward all-natural births (which include a vaginal delivery) while those who opt for—or end up having—a c-section birth are painted as "not strong enough" to stick to their original plan.
