Entertainment News

Gregory Jacobs, director for the upcoming sequel to Magic Mike, has confirmed that Matthew McConaughey will not be in the film. He revealed some details about the project to Indiewire while promoting his new Amazon pilot, Red Oaks.

Jacobs told the website, "It's road trip movie, and put it this way: It's different enough that once you see it, you'll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice." Filming for Magic Mike XXL started earlier this month with returning cast members Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, and Channing Tatum.

  • It is set to hit theaters on July 1st, 2015.
  • McConaughey played Dallas in the first installment.

Rumors are circulating that there is already drama behind the scenes of The View after less than a week with the new co-hosts. Sources tell Page Six that liberal Rosie O'Donnell and conservative Nicolle Wallace couldn't stop arguing even after the cameras stopped rolling.

The fighting began on Tuesday's show (September 16th) when Nicolle said on-air that President Obama "doesn't love people" which did not go over well with Rosie. One insider said, "Rosie and Nicole were still going at it after the cameras stopped rolling. Executive producer Bill Wolff had to call them both in and order them to calm down." A rep for the network called the rumor "absurd" and an attempt to create controversy.

  • There are also rumors that ABC is having internal struggles over who decides the directed of the show. Another insider revealed, "ABC News head James Goldston and Daytime head Lisa Hackner are fighting over who gets control of The View. The situation has become so fraught that Disney/ABC Senior Vice President Abra Potkin had to step in. It is a monumental clash of egos."

When you're A-listers like Jada Pinkett and Will Smith, the world can be your oyster -- but sometimes they just want to hang in their backyard. Jada appears on the cover of Health magazine where she describes a date night with her hubby of nearly 17 years.

She reveals, "A lot of times, we'll do it at the house because when we go out it can be a little hectic. So we have different places around our yard where we like to set up a little Arabian tent, pillows, wine and cheese, candlelight. Will likes really thought-out productions."

  • Jada previously addressed all of the rumors surrounding their marriage to Net-A-Porter last month saying, "The coping technique is knowing what the truth is -- there's no better technique. When you know that what's going on in your house is so the opposite of what's being said, and you also know that when there's mystery, people fill in the gaps, that's okay. And then you look back at it and look at how creative people can be, and it's kind of entertaining. We can laugh because it's so ridiculous."

Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza has been hired to be the voice of Grumpy Cat. The popular kitty is the star of a new Lifetime movie called Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever.

The story follows a grumpy, lonely cat who lives in a mall pet shop until a 12-year-old girl named Chrystal learns she can speak to the animal. Chrystal then sets out on a mission to rescue her feline friend after the mall closes on Christmas Eve. It will be airing on November 29th.

  • Aubrey addressed the casting by sharing a Christmas-themed Grumpy Cat meme:

Donnie helped him get dressed, and then he met me and said, 'You ready?' He put out his little arm, and we walked down the aisle, and the officiator said, 'Who's giving away this girl?' And he raised his arm, 'I am.'" The former View co-host also said the Evan made a speech at the wedding saying how happy he is for his mother and that he loves his stepdad.

FLIGHT OF 'TWILIGHT' ACTOR FORCED TO MAKE EMERGENCY LANDING: Jackson Rathbone, co-star of the Twilight movies, took to WhoSay on Thursday (September 18th) to reveal that his flight from California to Austin, Texas blew an engine and had to make an emergency landing. He wrote, "We were on jetBlue flight 1416 to Austin from Long Beach. Our right engine exploded and our cabin filled with smoke. The oxygen masks did not deploy, but the brave stewardesses came around and manually deployed them. It was rough, the plane was rocking. I recited the Lord's Prayer as I held my son and my wife in my arms. The pilot came on the PA and let us know we lost the right engine. We were told to brace as we careened sharply back towards land. Over the PA, the pilot yelled 'Brace!' The stewardesses made it into a chant. I wrapped my arm around us. And we braced. Guided by our pilot, and I believe our guardian angels, we landed safely. We landed safely. It wasn't even all that rough, honestly. I just couldn't stop kissing my family and thanking my God. The doors were thrown open, once on the tarmac. The stewardesses yelled for us to get out and as far away from the airplane as possible. I grabbed my son and jumped down the inflated ramp, my wife following. We left all our personal effects onboard. Who cares. We were alive. We're safe. I'm grateful. From the bus, we all just followed one after another. I never felt so okay being a lemming." Since the incident, Jackson has been sharing photos of the aftermath and how the airline has been handling the whole situation. He also revealed that he got on another jetBlue flight to get his family to their final destination.
