Buffy The Vampire Slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar Joss Whedon Alyson Hannigan

Sarah Michelle Gellar, Joss Whedon and the cast of perennial ‘90s TV favourite ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ have reunited to mark the 20th anniversary of the legendary show.

Entertainment Weekly gathered the extensive cast together for a photoshoot this week, some images of which came out on Wednesday (March 29th), with an in-depth interview coming soon. Whedon, who has since directed Marvel Universe cinematic blockbusters, described the get-together as “surreal”.

Keira Knightley Admits She's A Spelling Error, But Who Else Has A Weirdly Spelt Name?


Keira Knightley Jaime Winstone Alyson Hannigan Thom Yorke Tobey Maguire Courteney Cox Barbra Streisand Nicolas Cage Zooey Deschanel Ioan Gruffudd Ashlee Simpson

Keira Knightley has always baffled the world with her first name's unique spelling, but as it turns out, rather than it being creative license on the part of her parents, it was a simple spelling mistake that less than impressed her father.

Keira Knightley has done well despite the difficult start her name had

In an interview with Elle magazine, the 29-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star explained that she was supposed to be named after the Russian figure skater Kiera Ivanova but her mother got the spelling wrong when she went to register the birth. Apparently, this didn't go down too well with Mr Knightley.

Man's World? Sofia Vergara Earns More Than Anyone - Even Kutcher


Sofia Vergara Mariska Hargitay Julianna Marguiles Ellen Pompeo Cobie Smulders Alyson Hannigan Amy Poehler

Who said cutthroat corridors of U.S television was a man's world? Sofia Vergara has proved that the era of the disgustingly high-paid leading man (Laurie, Sheen) may well be over, by not only topping the highest paid TV actress list for a tired consecutive , but taking the top-spot overall.

The actress earned $37 million last year, that's some $11 million more than the top-earning TV actor Ashton Kutcher. The Colombian-born star earns a reported $325,000 per episode for 'Modern Family' - way off the reported $1 million per episode deal that Kaley Cuoco signed on 'The Big Bang Theory' - but Vergara's earnings come from endorsements and licensing deals with Diet Pepsi, CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, AT&T and Synthroid. As Forbes note, the actress is also the co-founder of Latin World Entertainment - a huge multi-million dollar episode.

DiCaprio, Johansson, Laurie: A Sneak Peak At Celebrity Auditions


Leonardo Dicaprio Scarlett Johansson Hugh Laurie Alyson Hannigan Brad Pitt Robert Downey Jr

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?

Leonardo DiCaprio
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.

'How I Met Your Mother' Ends Tonight, As We Find Out The Big Secret


Josh Radnor Neil Patrick Harris Cobie Smulders Jason Segel Alyson Hannigan Cristin Milioti

There'll be How I Met Your Mother fans with knots in their stomach all day today as they wait anxiously for the final episode of the hit CBS sitcom. It has been a long road for the comedy show which by tonight will have run its course over nine seasons. When "HIMYM" debuted back in the fall of 2005, no one could have predicted the consistent success and comedic legacy of such a simple premise: a man in 2030 telling his two kids the tale of how he met their mother.

How I Met Your Mother Cast
'How I Met Your Mother' Prepares For Its Final Episode This Evening.

An entire series told in flashbacks, HIMYM only revealed the identity of "the mother" at the end of series eight, played by Cristin Milioti. Certain signals from her interaction with Ted (Josh Radnor) lead fans to believe that the mother actually is dead in 2030, and that's why the dad is reminiscing with his kids. This rumour was quickly played down by the cast but shows a keenness amongst fans for a "legen-dary" twist to top of their favourite show.

'How I Met Your Mother' Gears Up For Finale, Fans Wait Anxiously


Josh Radnor Cobie Smulders Neil Patrick Harris Alyson Hannigan Jason Segel

In two episode's time we'll have the last ever episode of How I Met Your Mother. It has been a long and undulating road for the hit CBS sitcom but the upcoming 31st March will hopefully give the series' devoted fans the finale they deserve.

How I Met Your Mother Cast

The HIMYM team's final outing will cap nine seasons, which is a pretty impressive feat: "I feel grateful that we all managed to get to the finish line. It's not every show that gets to run nine years and end on its own terms," says co-creator Carter Bays, who, has helped guide the show to its long-planned ending.

'How I Met Your Mother' Will Finally Reveal Mysterious Titular Parent In Final Season


Neil Patrick Harris Josh Radnor Cobie Smulders Alyson Hannigan Jason Segel

The co-creator of 'How I Met Your Mother' Craig Thomas has confessed that the identity of narrator Ted Mosby's mysterious future spouse will be finally revealed in the ninth and last season of the show.

The CBS comedy show will make its conclusion in the next season but writers insist that all loose ends will be tied. "The plan has always been to meet this girl at some point", he told TVGuide.com. '[CBS] want to make sure, I guess, that the audience knows they're not going to be jerked around or short changed in any way.' He also mentioned that they wanted to go all out with the new series in its 'final lap', claiming that there will be no 'withholding of fun ideas' and describing the conclusion as a 'carpe diem' type affair.

In case one of our main stars; Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel; were to leave the series too early, however, Thomas said that they had 'a Plan A and a Plan B' as to how the series would make its finale. The rest of season 8 is currently being aired on Mondays on CBS in the US as well as E4 in the UK.

CBS Confirms One Final Season For 'How I Met Your Mother'


Neil Patrick Harris Jason Segel Alyson Hannigan

How I Met Your Mother, the enduring CBS sitcom, has been confirmed for renewal for its final series – the ninth since the show began back in 2005.

Making stars of the likes of Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel, as well as furthering the careers of the likes of Alyson Hannigan, the show has enjoyed a steady popularity both in the United States and abroad, and there was no surprise that it’s received commission for one final run. "Through eight years, 'How I Met Your Mother' has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catch phrases," CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said in a statement. "We are excited for Carter, Craig, Pam Fryman and this amazing cast to tell the final chapter and reveal television's most mysterious mother to some of TV's most passionate fans."

Another statement, from Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen of 20th Century Fox Television, added "We're thrilled to have the entire and incredibly talented 'How I Met Your Mother' cast back for one final season to bring the series to a proper close. Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are masterful and hilarious storytellers, and we have no doubt that they will guide one of the greatest comedies of the last decade to a gratifying conclusion when they finally reveal the identity of the Mother."

How I Met Your Mother Confirmed For 9th And Final Season, May Copy Seinfeld


Neil Patrick Harris Jason Segel Alyson Hannigan Cobie Smulders Josh Radnor

Finally, we might find out how Ted met his kids' mother. The CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother has been confirmed by its makers that it will return for a 9th season, but that its season will be the last.

We'll have to say goodbye to Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), Ted (Josh Radnor), Marshall (Jason Segal), Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Robin (Cobie Smulders), but its legacy will live on in Suit Up Day, at the very least. From the writers of Friends, it has managed to retain a good audience and does particularly well with the sought after demographic of 18-49, according to the Los Angeles Times. Having premièred in 2005 it is now in its 9th season, and has followed Ted and his friends while he narrates the story of how he met his children's mother. Every relationship that he has seems to continually imply that that is their mother, but always fizzles out. 

"Through eight years, 'How I Met Your Mother' has mastered the art of leading-edge comedy, emotional water-cooler moments and pop culture catch phrases," CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said in a statement. "We are excited for Carter [Bays], Craig [Thomas] and [executive producer] Pam Fryman and this amazing cast and to tell the final chapter and reveal television's most mysterious mother to some of TV's most passionate fans."

American Reunion [aka American Pie: Reunion] Review


Weak
Call this a missed opportunity. While there's plenty of scope to have fun with these characters as they hit 30, this script is simply not up to the job. It's never very funny, has no sense of momentum and only comes to life due to the endearing characters and the likeable actors who play them.

It's the class of 1999's 13th reunion (huh?), so the entire gang returns to East Great Falls. Jim and Michelle (Bigs and Hannigan) now have a 2-year-old son, which has interrupted their sex life; Oz (Klein) is a B-list TV star with a supermodel girlfriend (Bowden); the now-married Kevin is worried about rekindling his high school romance with Vicky (Reid); Finch (Thomas) is a world traveler who clicks with Michelle's band camp pal Selena (Ramirez). And then there's party-boy prankster Stifler (Scott), who hasn't changed at all and leads them into all manner of trouble.

Alyson Hannigan Forced Herself To Wait Before Getting Married


Alyson Hannigan Alexis Denisof

'How I Met Your Mother' star Alyson Hannigan reveals that she followed her mother's advice and decided not to rush into a marriage. Despite being married to actor Alexis Denisof in October 2003, she revealed that they waited until being in a relationship for four years to get married, after first meeting on the set of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'.

Hannigan was raised by a single mother, Emilie Posner, after her husband Al Hannigan (Alyson's father), walked out on the family. This led to Posner teaching her daughter not to leap into a marriage with a man she didn't truly like. The 38-year-old Hannigan spoke to 'The Sun', saying: ''My mom, Emilie, always taught me to think hard about marriage. Her own, to my father, ended when I was two. So she said, 'Take your time.' I met Alex, who played Wesley Wyndam-Pryce in the series ('Buffy'), and it was flirtation at first sight!"

American Pie 2 Review


Excellent
The gang from American Pie is back in American Pie 2, or, I Still Know What You Screwed Last Summer. The immortal pie, of course, is gone, but there are plenty of foreign objects and luscious ladies to occupy the genitalia of the entire cast for a full hour and a half.

After reinventing the sex comedy in 1999's American Pie, AP2 had a high bar to live up to, and miraculously, it has done so. It actually outdoes the original (by a mile) when it comes to juvenile and crude humor. And the sex gags... jeez, the dick jokes come rapid fire, one every minute. It ain't Woody Allen, but damn if it isn't utterly hysterical.

American Wedding Review


Good
That wacky American Pie crew is back -- er, a handful of them, anyway -- for a lackluster third and undoubtedly final outing with sex, pie, and ice cream. Okay, there's no pie or ice cream.

Picking up three years after American Pie 2, we find pastry-loving Jim (Jason Biggs) and band-camper Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) graduating from college and still in love. A wedding is deemed in order, which brings back Jim's pals Kevin (Thomas Ian Nicholas), Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Stifler (Seann William Scott) to plan the blessed event. Of course, any married man knows that no wedding in history has ever been organized by three hapless guys, and when the crew drives three hours to Chicago to buy Michelle a wedding dress (huh!?) you know we're in for an old-fashioned round of Spot the Plot Device.

Dead Man On Campus Review


OK
Have you seen the one about the college kids who try to get their roommate to kill himself so they can get straight As? Oh, you have? Well, MTV remade it for the umpteenth time again, last year, and it wasn't good this time, either.

Boys And Girls Review


Excellent
Boys and Girls plays like a college version of When Harry Met Sally..., with just as much fun and fewer contrivances. Here, the key couple is Ryan and Jennifer, who meet by chance on a plane as pre-teens, and continually bump into one another until their lives bisect at Cal-Berkeley. Ryan, played by Flavor of the Moment Freddie Prinze Jr., is a bright, sometimes awkward engineering student who loves planning and order; Jennifer, Meet Joe Black's Claire Forlani, majors in Latin for no particular reason and aims to travel. Both wish they could apply their positive personality traits to their floundering relationships, but it just doesn't work.

The smart script for Boys and Girls, written by the humbly-credited "Drews", succeeds in part because Ryan and Jennifer nurture their unique friendship for nearly all of the film. While the inevitable Hollywood ending may be in viewers' minds from the get-go, The Drews and director Robert Iscove keep us guessing if this pair might ever connect with each other, and the sweet performances by Prinze and Forlani keep us interested.. The couple's interplay, and the machinations of their separate, frustrating lovelives, are satisfying enough that a sunshiny ending is not required.
