Family reunion: Will Smith reunites with "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" cast

No Comments

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — It looks like the cast of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is still, “chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool.”

In a photo posted to Instagram Monday by Alfonso Riberio, who played the cheerful Carlton Banks on the beloved 90s sitcom, the cast of Fresh Prince is seen hanging out together on a patio near the beach.

“Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family,” Ribeiro captioned the pic.

Ribeiro’s photo included Tatyana Ali who played Ashley; Karyn Parsons who played Hillary; Will Smith, who of course played the delinquent cousin Will; Daphne Maxwell Reid who played the second Aunt Vivian; and Joseph Marcell, who starred as their sarcastic butler, Geoffrey.

Noticeably missing from the pic was Uncle Phil, played by James Avery, who died in 2013 after complications during open heart surgery. Riberio acknowledged the actor, writing, “Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete.”

Watch now: "Spider-Man: Homecoming" trailer shows Peter Parker's in over his web-head

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

Marvel Studios – 2017(NEW YORK) — The second trailer for the new Spider-Man movie — Spider-Man: Homecoming — just debuted.

The new footage rounds out a bit more of the plot: as shown in Captain America: Civil War, Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man has retrofitted Tom Holland’s Peter Parker with a Stark tech-filled Spidey-suit to compliment his powers. But the eager Avenger wannabe soon finds himself in over his head, thanks to Michael Keaton’s Adrian Toomes, who becomes the fearsome flying suit-wearing villain, Vulture.

Peter Parker finds this out the hard way after trying to bust some baddies on board the Staten Island Ferry: Vulture blasts the passenger-filled vessel in half with an energy weapon, forcing Spidey to try to lace it together with his webs, and his strength alone.

After Iron Man comes to the rescue, Stark admonishes him. “What if someone had died?!,” he says, before telling Peter he wants the suit back. “I’m nothing without this suit!” Parker protests, to which Stark says, “If you’re nothing without the suit, then you shouldn’t have it!”

Spidey then apparently goes at it alone, trying to take on Vulture and Bokeem Woodbine’s baddie, Shocker.

The clip also shows how the high schooler’s super-heroic extracurricular activities are affecting Parker’s friendships, and his relationship with his Aunt May, again played by Marisa Tomei.

Spider-Man: Homecoming opens July 17, 2017 from Marvel Studios and Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Abby Lee Miller says she's quitting "Dance Moms"

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

Lifetime/Barbara Nitke(LOS ANGELES) — Abby Lee Miller is quitting Dance Moms, she has announced.

The reality TV star took to Instagram on Sunday evening to tell her fans that she will no longer participate in her Lifetime series.

In the show, Miller teaches young dancers at her Abby Lee Dance Company studios in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh.

A rep for Lifetime had no comment when reached by ABC News.

“For the past six years/seven seasons I have asked, begged, and even demanded creative credit for all the ideas, award-winning routines, themes and costuming to no avail. Today, I was so proud that I went against the producer’s idea (once again) to enter a command performance of one of my favorite numbers,” she wrote on Instagram.

“I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful. I just have a problem with being manipulated, disrespected, and used day in and day out by men who never took a dance lesson in their lives and treat women like that.”

In October 2015, Miller was indicted for fraud. The reality star was accused of lying about the money she earned between 2012 and 2013, and secretly creating bank accounts to hide that income, which totaled about $775,000, to gain better terms to restructure debt.

Last June, she pleaded guilty to purposely hiding that income and later, she also pleaded guilty to an unrelated charge of sneaking $120,000 in foreign currency into the United States from Australia, which, according to The Associated Press, she agreed to forfeit. The AP also reported that a prosecutor has urged a federal judge to sentence Miller to prison in her fraud case.

Sentencing reportedly will take place later this year.

"Dancing with the Stars 24" Recap: Chris Kattan goes home, Normani Kordei and Rashad Jennings heat it up for high

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) — Comedic actor Chris Kattan was eliminated from Dancing with the Stars Monday night, the second week into season 24. It was a bittersweet moment for the actor after he revealed earlier that he broke his neck 14 years ago and has pins along his spine which restrict his movement. Kattan and his partner Witney Carson danced to “Hey Ya!” by OutKast, but tied for the lowest score of the night with Mr. T. He was sent home.

In jeopardy with Kattan was the fiery Charo, who delivered another sizzling performance but brought in a low score of 25, despite a positive critique from the judges. She was clearly displeased with the results and things took a comedic turn for the worse when the 66-year-old icon told Bruno Tonioli, “I’m going to get you!”

High scores went to Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei and NFL running back Rashad Jennings, who heated up the dance floor during their individual performances. Normani and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy dazzled during their cha cha, this after just she returned from three concerts in Japan. Jennings and Emma Slater glided across the floor to “Suffer” by Charlie Puth. Jennings seems like a natural.

Monday night’s standout moment:
While Mr. T’s Paso Doblé to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” from Rocky III was fun, it was the steamy chemistry between Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess during their Viennese waltz that caused Julianne Hough to speculate that “something” might be unfolding between them.

Monday night’s high scorers:
Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy – Cha Cha, Score: 32
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater – Viennese Waltz, Score: 32

Judges’ Scores:
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev – Cha Cha, Score: 28 out of 40
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko – Foxtrot, Score: 28
Charo and Keo Motsepe – Paso Doblé, Score: 25 (in jeopardy)
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd – Foxtrot, Score: 25
Heather Morris and Alan Bersten, who was filling in for Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Jive, Score: 30
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess – Viennese Waltz, Score: 29
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber – Cha Cha, Score: 29
Chris Kattan and Witney Carson – Jazz, Score: 22 (in jeopardy; eliminated)
Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy – Cha Cha, High Score: 32
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater – Viennese Waltz, High Score: 32
Mr. T & Kym Herjavec – Paso Doblé, Score: 22

Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday on ABC.

Liam Neeson, Lin-Manuel Miranda "audition" to be Stephen Hawking's new voice

No Comments

By Stephen Iervolino

Getty Images/Karwai Tang(LONDON) — In a hilarious clip created for Red Nose Day, the annual fundraising event from the charity Comic Relief, genius physicist Stephen Hawking auditions some A-List talent to provide a replacement for his usual computer-assisted voice.

None other than Anna Kendrick, Liam Neeson, and Hamilton phenom Lin-Manuel Miranda line up to try out their pipes, with the latter opting, unsurprisingly, to rap his offering. Miss Piggy, as well as Star Wars stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, also offer their services.

British actor Eddie Redmayne also tries to get the gig — after all, he won an Oscar playing Hawking in the movie The Theory of Everything.

That job experience ultimately, didn’t pay off for the actor however: the “once-in-a-lifetime” voice-over job goes to another Academy Award winner: Michael Caine.

The annual fundraising campaign is celebrated May 25th in the U.S.
