In this week's highly anticipated new release, 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' Vin Diesel plays a walking, talking, sentient tree named Groot. As adorable as that sounds (and it's really adorable), the best part about Groot is that his vocabulary consists of just three words: "I am Groot." It's how he expresses everything (and it kind of works), but it also means that Diesel needed to dub his lines into different languages for international release himself, because it's such an essential part of his character.
Daniel Radcliffe hit up Comic-Con this past weekend to promote his new film, 'Horns,' but the 'Harry Potter' star was determined to have some fun away from the glare of the spotlight. Fortunately, the charming star was in the right place for that, and he did it quite handily...by dressing up as Spider-man. Where else can a full-grown man dress up as a superhero and not get a second glance? Point to Radcliffe.
The '50 Shades of Grey' trailer is alternately steamy and scary, but late-night host Jimmy Fallon wasn't content to show it to his house band, the one and only Roots, as is. Nope, that thing needed to be modified just a touch, to really make sure that the band was paying the proper attention to their trailer-watching assignment. So the 'Tonight Show' host did what anyone would do -- he inserted a scary scream face into the middle of the trailer. Obvious, right?
James Franco has never been one to shy away from selfies, even the kind he probably shouldn't be taking and putting on the internet. Over the years, he's developed a well-oiled system for making them work, especially the ones he takes with his eager fanbase.
Ah, yes, the hard-hitting questions with Jimmy Kimmel! The late-night host sent some of his crack 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' team down to San Diego for Comic-Con 2014 to get a real sense of the costumed crowd, including asking them the tough questions. You know what he asked? You want to know, too, don't you? Don't be shy. Don't play coy.
Beloved actor Morgan Freeman has apparently found a strange new way to help him wind down after a long shoot or two -- while some people take up crafting in the later years, or perhaps get into vintage cars, maybe even fill their vacation time with cruises to exotic locales, Freeman is into something just a little bit different. Bees. He's a beekeeper now. "Morgan Freeman, Beekeeper." They like him. He likes them. Sounds pretty sweet, right?
You know the drill by now: a big star hits up a late night talk show to chat, laugh, maybe play a game, plug their latest project, and show a clip. It's a standard way to do things, but you know who doesn't care about standard ways of doing things? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And, really, who are we to argue with him?
We already know that Conan O'Brien is super stoked about his latest star turn in sure-to-be-blockbuster 'Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda' -- the man did already buy his own billboard to boast about his performance -- but that doesn't mean that we as an audience are that excited to see him in the new feature. Really, what's the 'Conan' host going to do with a lil cameo in a monster movie?
Marvel has been making some big changes to its standard comic book lore lately -- introducing both a new female Thor and a new black Captain America over the course of mere days -- and rival comic book giant DC does not want to be left behind. DC is progressive, too, you guys, and what better time to unveil their new take on a beloved superheroine than during Comic-Con week? It just makes sense!
If there's one thing you need to remember about comedians, it's that despite the chuckles, belly laughs, and guffaws that they can inspire in other people, they tend to be kind of grumpy on their own. Just look at Ricky Gervais! He's been nominated for yet another Emmy (he's already won two), but all the guy can think about is the thank you that's owed to him from yet another comedian, who just so happens to also be an Emmy nominee.
