A collection of rare audition tapes of some of a our favourite Hollywood actors has been released and it makes for interesting viewing!
TV and film superstars often don’t seem like real people. They live on a screen in our front room, or occasionally on a bigger screen in a bigger room if it’s a special occasion. They perform something funny, moving, sad or uplifting and then we, as the viewing public, go back to our daily lives and they continue to be these things that we can’t really associate with. Do they eat, drink, fight, burp, play and laugh like everyone else? Who can tell when the only time we see them is pouting on a red carpet in beautiful designer clothes that make them look unrealistically sensational?
Hollywood stars like Leonardo Dicaprio have to apply for their job just like all of his fans
While the everyday lifestyle of the average acting superstar may be but mere guesswork for us mortals, what we can conclude is that they have to interview for jobs just as much as the next person - and they have to do it on camera.

The BBC are mixing things up, slowly.
As part of the shakeup at BBC Radio, Radio 2 has one of the corporation’s longest running broadcasters switching to a late night slot, Hugh Laurie hosting a blues show, and radio stalwart Steve Lamacq shoved out the door. He’ll retain his BBC 6 Music drivetime slot, though. As far as shakeups go, this isn’t very shaky.
Hugh Laurie was the highest paid actor in the U.S for House
Lewis Carnie, Radio 2's head of programmes, said: "I wanted to expand our big band programming but, with reduced funds across the BBC, we could no longer afford to commit to regular big band recordings. However, we are aware that our listeners love this kind of music, so we are giving our Sunday night audience an extended two hour session of the tunes they love from the broadest range of Big Band music."
Stephen Colbert mocked Daft Punk on 'The Colbert Report' after they cancelled their appearance in favour of the MTV Video Music Awards.
Daft Punk cancelled their appearance on The Colbert Report on Tuesday night, this was so they could make a surprise appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Unfortunately for the group, Stephen Colbert did not take the slight kindly. The comedian started to make puns at the electronica group's expense, he claimed he'd been "daft punk'd" and referred to the duo as "the artists formerly booked as Daft Punk."

As many of us look forward to tomorrow, a Friday: the end of the working week and a chance to kick back with a vat of whatever numbs the pain, think of Ashton Kutcher - raking in $24m a year and spending it on the sexiest woman of the year.
That's right, according to Metro, the richest TV actor is enjoying some extra curricular activity with Esquires Sexiest Woman in the World, Mila Kunis. The facts suggest that he certainly is the luckiest man on earth. For some, it really is luck: with fancy houses growing up, the best education, the best contacts thanks to their parents jobs, but for Ashton, life wasn't so simple. All of his siblings had health problems of some such; his twin brother has cerebral palsy and his other brother had to have a heart transplant at a young age. And it's not as if Kutcher was the only family member to grow up untroubled. He attempted suicide at just 13-years of age. A tough home-life didn't put him off acting though, and he continued to become one of the most prominent actors today. Like him or loathe him, and many choose to loathe, but he's well and truly got himself to where he wants to be.
Following Kutcher, who overtook the erstwhile Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen in the richlist, were Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano, tied for second place at $18 million thanks to the syndication of "House" and "Everybody Loves Raymond.
Sheen isn't so 'bi-winning' anymore it seems, since Kutcher started raking in the glory. Not only has he got the lead role in one of the most popular sitcoms in the States, earning him a Teen Choice nomination already, but his earnings of $24 million since signing the show's contract has made him the Highest Paid TV Actor according to Forbes - not only that, but he is also reportedly dating his stunning 'That 70s Show' co-star Mila Kunis who, incidentally, came ninth on FHM's 100 Sexiest Women In The World 2012 list whereas Sheen appears to be, regrettably, single. And no longer super super rich like Ashton, as he didn't even make Forbes top 10 list in spite of the fact that last year he earned a whopping $40 million.
Forbes bigged up Kutcher even more when mentioning his business ventures: 'In addition to acting, Kutcher is an active Silicon Valley investor. He got in early on Skype, Spotify and Airbnb which is now worth $1 billion.' Also in the top five on the list were Hugh Laurie with $18 million, Ray Romano with $18 million, Alec Baldwin with $15 million and Mark Harmon, $15 million in respective second, third, fourth and fifth places.
Hugh Laurie and Catherine Keener talk kissing and music during a press junket at New York's Crosby Hotel for their hilarious new movie 'The Oranges'. Hugh, 53, is asked why his onscreen kiss with 26-year-old Leighton Meester has been made into a 'big thing' in America. 'I don't know the answer to that not having seen the kiss itself', he said. 'Is it shocking?' But Catherine chimes in that she's used to seeing that kind of age gap in LA: 'It's pretty much the norm there.'
Arthur Christmas is the clumsy youngest son of the famous Santa Claus. Together with his family, including his father, his cool older brother Steve, Santa's father Grandsanta and Santa's wife, Mrs. Santa, they run a top secret, highly state of the art operation beneath the North Pole, which helps Santa deliver every single Christmas present in one night around the globe and which cannot be seen by anyone else. It is a lengthy process, which sees Santa's team of elves - including a 'Gift Wrapping Battalion' who carry scissors and tape guns - training in the isolated Arctic during the summer by performing drills and practising their wrapping skills on unsuspecting polar bears. There is also a 'mission control' in which Santa and his team can see exactly how many days there are until Christmas and how many presents have been wrapped.

While planning for her wedding to local newsman Derek Dietl (voice of Paul Rudd), Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is hit by an enormous meteorite containing a mysterious alien element. It instantly causes her to grow in size to gigantic proportions. Naturally, this leads the government, under the director of General W. R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) to capture the gal and take her back to his top secret compound. There, he keeps other so-called "monsters" -- mad scientist turned bug Dr. Cockroach (Hugh Laurie), an aquatic fish man known as the Missing Link (Will Arnett), a blob like biological accident named B.O.B.

Alcoholic police detective Todd Ludlow (Keanu Reeves) has just finished wrapping up a notorious kidnapping case when Captain Jack Wander (Forest Whittaker) gives him the bad news. His ex-partner Terrence Washington (Terry Crews) is talking to Internal Affairs, and bureau head Captain James Biggs (Hugh Laurie) is looking to take Ludlow down. Before he can intimidate his former friend into not snitching, a pair of gang bangers kill him. Desperate to clear his own name in the death, Ludlow begins to investigate. Soon, he's linking the crime to a couple of local drug dealers who seem incapable of committing the hit. With Wander on his side and Biggs on his back, it will take all the street savvy he has to solve the case -- that is, if someone doesn't try and permanently stop him too.

Little 2 starts off strong enough, reintroducing dad Fredrick (Hugh Laurie), mom Eleanor (Geena Davis), son George (Jonathan Lipnicki), and adopted child Stuart (voice of Michael J. Fox), who's actually a talking mouse. Since last we met the Little clan, the family has added baby girl Martha, which gives Eleanor someone else to dote over besides her pint-sized sons. Speaking of, Stuart's depressed because George is outgrowing the novelty of having a kid brother.

This is surprising because this remake is considerably faithful to the plot of its predecessor. The story tells the plight of an eccentric group of underachieving oilrig workers who become stranded in Mongolia's Gobi Desert (the Sahara in the original) after their cargo plane crashes during a fierce sandstorm. There's very little water, and only a few cans of peaches to sustain their existence under the scorching desert summer sun. Despite their circumstances, the group decides to take their chances and, gulp, build a new plane in a desperate attempt to save themselves.

It's easy to see why the money is going elsewhere. Valiant clocks in at just below 80 minutes, and it feels padded. The typical Disney trademarks of untested heroes, sarcastic sidekicks, and puppy love are offered, but they feel like hand-me-downs, worn ragged by Aladdin, Timon, and the rest. Nothing in Valiant is larger than life, including the villains, always a staple. Tim Curry voices an evil falcon, and his work won't make anyone forget Jeremy Irons' Scar anytime soon.

Fans of "Stuart Little," the classic E. B. White's children's book about a congenial little mouse with a wind-up red roadster, would be wise to avoid "Stuart Little," the mostly in-name-only big screen adaptation featuring Michael J. Fox's voice emanating from a computer-animated Stuart.
Nearly everything delightful about the book is erased or painted over here with near-plotless kiddie fare, predictably zany adventures and deliberately ham-fisted acting from a wildly talented cast (Geena Davis, Hugh Laurie, Jeffrey Jones, Allyce Beasley, Estelle Getty, Julia Sweeney), entirely wasted on a Saturday morning cartoon script.
Ironically co-written by M. Night Shyamalan (the writer-director of "The Sixth Sense"), the story opens with Mr. and Mrs. Little on their way to an orphanage to pick out a kid for no explored reason. Won over by the home's least likely resident -- a talking mouse named Stuart with a miniature wardrobe and a pithy personality -- they take him home, where his new brother George (Jonathan Lipnicki from "Jerry Maguire") gives him the cold shoulder and the family cat (voiced obnoxiously by Nathan Lane) tries to eat him.

There are bound to be very few surprises in a movie that gives away its ending in the title. A remake of a 1965 Jimmy Stewart movie in which the survivors of a desert plane crash build a new makeshift aircraft from the wreckage of the old one, "Flight of the Phoenix" has no surprises at all.
From a guy showing pictures of his wife and kid (uh oh) before the doomed cargo plane even takes off to ferry workers home from a shut-down Gobi Desert oil rig, to the personality clashes as social order disintegrates, to the inspirational speeches that bring them all back together, everything in the story comes pretty much on cue. Even the band of desert marauders who turn up to threaten them arrives just in time to kick off the third act.

A significant improvement over its plotless, meandering predecessor, "Stuart Little 2" is fun-loving, low calorie, big-city adventure for the seamlessly computer-animated talking mouse with the effervescent voice of Michael J. Fox.
In this sequel the fuzzy, Lilliputian adopted son of the Little clan -- which includes Stuart's human brother (Jonathan Lipnicki) and his silly, sacchariney, storybook-perfect parents (Hugh Laurie and Geena Davis) -- brings home a spirited sweetheart of a canary named Margalo (Melanie Griffith's voice) after rescuing her from a falcon.
When she later disappears -- along with Mrs. Little's wedding ring -- naive, good-hearted Stuart is convinced the falcon has snatched her away and sets out on a rescue mission, dragging along a very reluctant Snowball, the Littles' pampered house cat with the Vaudevillian voice of Nathan Lane.
