Splash Leaps Into Semi Finals And Linda Barker Shines In Her Swimsuit


Linda Barker Charlotte Jackson Tom Daley Omid Djalili

Although it was instantly treated as a nationwide laughing stock ITV's new show Splash has been making waves (sorry) in the Saturday night ratings schedule since it aired, and now the show is in the semi-finals stage, just about everyone is talking about it.

A quick head over to Twitter and you'll see that the show itself, host and diving wunderkind Tom Daley, and resident MILF Landa Barker are clogging up all the trending feeds. Who's laughing now? Well, people are still laughing at Splash but, lots of people are laughing with it too, and isn't that all you could ask for from a TV show about Z-listers jumping into a pool?

At 51, yes, 51! Barker has clearly been the star of tonight's episode. It's been that way for much of the series and lets face it, anyone who said that people wouldn't be tuning into the show just to perv over the contestants and their skimpy outfits was lying to themselves and clearly doesn't watch a lot of TV anymore.

Comic Omid Djalili Apologises For Mocking Soccer Star


Omid Djalili Star Trek

Actor/funnyman Omid Djalili has apologised for jokingly comparing a soccer ace who was disfigured in a childhood accident to a Klingon character from Star Trek.

The Sex and the City 2 star was watching the England team take on France in the Euro championships in Poland on Monday (15Jun12), and made several comments on Twitter.com about the appearance of player Joleon Lescott, who was left with scars on his forehead after he was run over by a car aged five.

Djalili wrote, "I love u Lescott. Never said u were a deformity. Always rated him... To be fair a lot of forehead to aim for."

After England drew 1-1, he tweeted congratulations to the team but likened Lescott to a Klingon, an alien race who have large, ridged foreheads.

Djalili's Fury Over Bin Laden Death Celebrations


Omid Djalili Osama Bin Laden

Actor/funnyman Omid Djalili was upset by the celebrations that followed news of the death of Osama Bin Laden, insisting it was an "outrage" for U.S. troops to gun down the terrorist leader.

The British-Iranian star, who has had roles in Sex and the City 2 and Pirates of The Caribbean: At World's End, was disgusted by the scenes of jubilation, televised around the world, which followed the announcement by U.S. President Barack Obama earlier this month (May11) that bin Laden had been shot dead during a raid on a compound in Pakistan.

Djalili tells The New Review magazine, "It was wrong for people to celebrate bin Laden's death. It just shows what an unevolved society we are. I saw lots of people on Twitter saying, 'I hope this is closure for all the people who were killed in New York,' but we don't even know for sure it was bin Laden (who masterminded the 9/11 attacks).

"For me, the killing is an outrage, and I'd rather have seen him on trial. I'd love to see the Pakistanis going into America demanding to kill their terrorist and the Americans saying, 'Bush, he's in Texas, you're welcome to him'."

David Baddiel Pleased With Infidel Success


David Baddiel Chris Morris Omid Djalili

David Baddiel is amazed at the worldwide response to his film 'The Infidel'.

The British comedian wrote the offbeat comedy about a devoted Muslim who discovers he is actually an adopted Jew, played by comedy actor Omid Djalili, and although he acknowledges it got off to a slow start in the UK he's been blown away by its success worldwide.

Speaking at the Loaded LAFTAs - where the movie picked up Funniest Film - he told BANG Showbiz: "I'm very happy with the way the film has been received. It was put out by a distributor who didn't put a lot of money behind it, it only started out on 29 screens, but now it's sold all around the world and it's grossed a lot of money.

David Baddiel's Controversial Comedy


David Baddiel Omid Djalili Skins Woody Allen

David Baddiel's new movie 'The Infidel' was too controversial for the BBC.

The 45-year-old comedian, who wrote the screenplay for the movie, claims the storyline of a Muslim who discovers he is an adopted Jew led to him having to finance the film independently.

He said: "The film was originally commissioned by the BBC, but they thought it was perhaps too sensitive a topic and so we financed it independently.

Modigliani Review


OK
Despite great talent, fame and fortune eluded the Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani during his brief life. A drunkard and a drug addict, Modigliani lived in squalor and died a relatively obscure figure of the Paris art scene of the early 20th century. Now, more than 80 years after his death, with a single one of his portraits recently fetching $8 million, Modigliani has finally achieved the ne plus ultra of artistic success: He is the subject of a feature film, writer-director Mick Davis's aptly titled Modigliani.

After a brief prelude, the film picks up Modigliani's story in 1919, the year before his death, at a time when modern art was flourishing in Paris. Artists such as Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, and Jean Cocteau haunted the cafes at night as their fame and influence spread over the globe. It is here, in a café, where Modigliani (Andy Garcia) makes his entrance, drunkenly hopping onto a table and publicly ridiculing Picasso with the question, "How do you make love to a cube?"
