Hall tweeted to raise some excitement for his comeback, using the hashtag "#backisbeautiful."

Arsenio Hall
He's Back! Get Those Fists Pumping!

The 57 year-old, who barely looks a year older than when he made his departure from his show, welcomed Paula Abdul, Chris Tucker, Snoop Dogg. Hall showed that his easy manner, sense of humor and energetic hosting skills had not been lost as he stepped back into a television genre now saturated with late night talkshow hosts and their comfy armchairs.

Set In Stone: Jackie Chan's Stardom Is Cemented In Hollywood History


Jackie Chan Chris Tucker Jaden Smith Will Smith

59 year-old Jackie Chan, who made a name for himself by performing his own stunts throughout his illustrious martial arts career, has left second imprints of his hands and feet outside Hollywood's Chinese Theatre after the first set disappeared.

Hong Kong-born Chan has starred in over a hundred films since his first appearance as a child actor in 1962's Big and Little Wong Tin Bar, crossing into Hollywood in 1995 with cult-film Rumble in the Bronx and receiving a Sidewalk Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002.

Described as a more exclusive honour than Hollywood's WoF by The Daily Mail, a special 'handprint' ceremony was held yesterday (6th June) where Chan made his prints in front of an audience including Jaden Smith - son of Will Smith and Chan's young co-star in the recent remake of The Karate Kid.

Chris Tucker Announced As Host Of BET Awards 2013


Chris Tucker Beyonce Knowles

Chris Tucker has been announced as the host of this year’s BET Awards, New York Daily News have revealed. The comedian / actor will play host at the award ceremony, which is scheduled to take place at the Nokia Theater LA Live on June 30, 2013.

Best known for his role in the Rush Hour movie franchise, starring alongside Jackie Chan, Tucker’s profile was unmistakably raised by his appearance in the Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. In a statement, he said that he’s honoured to be taking part in the awards and is “looking forward to being part of a really great show.” Helping to make it a ‘really great show,’ it has also been announced that Beyonce will provide some of the entertainment at the event. This year, the BET awards will form part of a three day event taking place that weekend, entitled BET Experience at LA Live. It starts on June 28, and Beyonce will perform then. She’ll be flanked by fellow performers Kendrick Lamar, R. Kelly and The Jacksons.

BET’s President of Music Programming and Specials, Stephen Hill, said “We cannot wait for Chris to set fire to the BET Awards stage with his unique brand of mayhem,” he said. “We’ve been chasing him for years and we couldn’t be happier that he is hosting the show in this special year: the year we embark on the three-day-long BET Experience."

Silver Linings Playbook Review


Excellent

Writer-director David O. Russell's out-of-control filmmaking style is perfectly suited to a romantic-comedy involving mental illness, and he infuses the film with a sparky unpredictability that's echoed in the perfectly graded performances of the entire cast. Cleverly, even though most of the characters are clinically unhinged, they're all likeable and easy to identify with.

Cooper stars as Pat, who has spent eight months in a mental hospital before his mother (Weaver) comes to take him home early. His dad (De Niro) isn't so sure it's a good idea, but everyone's happy to have him home. And since he finally accepts that he's bipolar, Pat is ready to get on with life. But it's not so easy. He's prevented from reuniting with his wife because of a restraining order, so he visits mutual friends (Stiles and Ortiz) instead. And they set him up with Tiffany (Lawrence), who's psychologically damaged in her own way. Recognising similar needs, they agree to help each other.

Yes, the film has a clear rom-com premise, but the characters are so unpredictable that we are never quite sure what they'll say or do next. And it's not like Pat and Tiffany are the only unstable people here: they're just the only ones with official diagnoses. All of which gives the actors almost too much colourful material to work with. Cooper is a likeable, charming presence at the centre, eliciting our sympathy even when he does something stupid. And Lawrence delivers a full-on performance that often takes our breath away with its clever layering.

PICTURES: Silver Linings Playbook Premiere, Jennifer Lawrence No Show!


Bradley Cooper Jennifer Lawrence Beth Ostrosky Howard Stern Julia Stiles Chris Tucker

The Silver Linings Playbook premiere was a predictably star-studded affair in New York on Monday evening (November 12, 2012), though its star Jennifer Lawrence was conspicuous by her absence. With the Oscar-tipped female lead nowhere to be seen, it was down to co-star Julia Stiles to take all the attention on the red carpet. Styles – best known for her role in 10 Things I Hate About You – rocked a short black dress.

Silver Linings Playbook Trailer


Pat Solitano has just come out of a mental institution where he was sent after a violent altercation with his wife's secret lover. Now he has lost his house, his job as a teacher, and his marriage is unsalvageable. He moves back in with his parents in order to build himself a life and make things up with his wife, but putting the past behind him isn't as easy as he'd hoped. He meets a woman called Tiffany who happens to be in a similar situation; she has also lost her job and her husband has passed away. The pair begin to get close as Tiffany promises to help him get back with his wife in return for him doing her a big favour. Both are still determinedly attached to their former spouses but their feelings betray them as their bond grows closer. 

'Silver Linings Playbook' has been adapted from the comedy drama novel of the same name by Matthew Quick and directed and written by David O. Russell ('Three Kings', 'I Heart Huckabees', 'The Fighter'). It's a wonderful story of how the brightest things can come out of the darkest situations and will hit the UK on November 21st 2012.

Director: David O. Russell

Rush Hour 3 Review


Terrible
For all the talk of his beguiling cameo as a police chief, Roman Polanski shows up in Rush Hour 3 for exactly two scenes for about two minutes. In fact, the French police have absolutely nothing to do with anything in the third Rush Hour installment. Polanski simply acts as a diacritic; a punctuation mark to let us know we're entering and exiting the French portion of the program. And although they are given more screen time, Ingmar Bergman-regular Max Von Sydow and French actor/director Yvan Attal serve similar purposes: They're garnish on a liver sandwich made with moldy bread and mayonnaise that started going green around the time of the Bay of Pigs.

Rush Hour 3 plunks our questionable partners, the loose-mouthed Carter (Chris Tucker) and elastic Lee (Jackie Chan), into an international scandal involving the Chinese Triad election that takes them from sunny Los Angeles to gay Paris. Lee's friend and employer Consul Hu (Tzi Ma) is about to blow the lid off the Triads when a sniper snags him a few centimeters north of his heart. Hu's friend Vernard (Von Sydow) OKs Lee and Carter's trip to his hometown of Paris, where, for one reason or another, the Chinese Triad have decided to have an election.

Chris Tucker Didn't Know Kanye West Would Berate George Bush Over Hurricane Katrina


Chris Tucker Kanye West George W Bush

'Rush Hour' star Chris Tucker is insisting that he was not aware that Kanye West was planning to use the televised live benefit concert for 2005's Hurricane Katrina as a stage to rant about US President George W. Bush. In the support concert for people in New Orleans, Louisiana, Kanye West decided to express the view that "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

The televised show had to cut to Tucker offstage during the rant, however, 'The Fifth Element' actor has expressed that he was just as surprised as everyone else. When he spoke to Playboy magazine, expressing his surprise by saying: "Kanye didn't tell me he was going to say it. I didn't know what to think. I don't know if what he said helped any. It was definitely shocking. But maybe it did help, and maybe he was the right person to say it."
