Mickey Rooney, One Of Hollywood’s Biggest Legends, Dies At 93
Stoogeypedia   |  

Mickey Rooney

Mickey Rooney, who while diminutive in size was an actor who spanned a wide range of moxie, versatility, and range, culminating in him becoming one of Hollywood’s true A-listers in its colorful history, has died at the age of 93 after battling a long illness reports TMZ. Rooney died of natural causes.

Mickey Rooney’s career as an actor and as a showman spanned ten decades, and he packed a lot into what appeared to be, at face value, a puckish, aw shucks kind of visage and frame. But he was able to stretch his talents into much more than a one-note artistic flair to appear in films that were some of the mid-20th Century’s most successful and more revered of all time.

Happy Birthday To Bryan Cranston
Stoogeypedia   |  

Bryan Cranston as Walter White

Bryan Cranston, who thrilled and enthralled audiences as one Walter White, the milquetoast chemistry teacher turned turned the sinister and relentless meth drug kingpin Heisenberg on AMC’s Breaking Bad, celebrates a birthday today.

Born on March 7, 1956, the Canoga Park, CA native has dabbled in film productions like Argo and the highly anticipated forthcoming re-re-retread of the Godzilla franchise, but it’s been his television career that has been the benchmarks of his career — two TV shows that sport two opposite ends of the spectrum, and neither could be further from one another: Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad.

Interview: Diamond Dallas Page Talks ‘Shark Tank,’ DDP Yoga, Weight Loss, and Wrestling
VanDyke Brown   |  

DDP Yoga header

Diamond Dallas Page is one of the toughest guys to ever lace up a pair of boots and step into a wrestling ring. An underdog champion in the truest sense, Page is the kind of guy who makes the best of any situation and rises to the top of whatever industry he’s a part of.

A former WCW/WWE champion on multiple occasions, Page started wrestling at the ripe age of 35 and didn’t hit his prime until the age of 40. He was winning matches when wrestling was at its peak – back during the now-famous Monday Night Wars. Nowadays, he’s revolutionizing another industry. Yoga. Yoga? Really? Oh hell yes really. DDP has taken a timeless practice and added in his own personal flair and, by doing so, he’s developed a literally life-saving workout.

I had the opportunity to chat with DDP following his appearance on Shark Tank.

Seth Rogen Promotes Alzheimer’s Awareness To U.S. Senate; Calls Out Senators Who Left Early

Seth Rogen Promotes Alzheimer's Awareness

If you haven’t already noticed, Seth Rogen is a very funny guy. With so many comedic roles, screenplays, and more under his belt, Rogen shows no signs of slowing down. But he took a moment to take a break from it all to bring a very serious matter to our attention: Alzheimer’s disease.

On Wednesday, the comedian spoke before the U.S. Senate about the horrifying disease, and how it has affected the people close to him, such as his mother-in-law who has the illness. Naturally, not everything was serious, as Rogen, known for his stoner roles, opened with a rather lighthearted joke: “Yes, I am aware that this has nothing to do with the legalization of marijuana.” He then went on to explain the reasons that brought him in front of the Senate in the first place, including that he’s a huge House of Cards fan.

While the Pineapple Express actor can’t help but inject humor into everything he does, he was serious about the importance for the need for more Alzheimer’s awareness, education, and research.

Hit the jump to check out the video of Rogen speaking before the U.S Senate.

ABC News Asks The Dalai Lama About ‘Caddyshack’
Empress Eve   |  

The Dalai Lama Caddyshack quote

In a statement regarding the passing of Harold Ramis, U.S. President Barack Obama referenced a scene from the filmmaker’s 1980 comedy Caddyshack where Bill Murray’s character, Carl Spackler, tells a story about how he was once a golf caddy for the Dalai Lama, who he says was a “big hitter,” but not a good tipper. In lieu of money, Spackler says that His Holiness promised him that on his deathbed he’d “receive total consciousness.”

Right after Ramis’s death, ABC News sat down with the Dalai Lama, where at the very end of the interview they snuck in some questions about Caddyshack. Yes, that’s right, the 78-year-old Nobel Peace Prize-winning spiritual leader did an on-camera interview with a reporter from a major news organization, who then went on to ask the Tibetan monk if he’s ever seen Caddyshack, a 1980′s R-rated “snobs vs. slobs” comedy centering on the crazy exploits of golf tournament competitors and their sexually charged caddies. The interviewer also asked the Dalai Lama if he plays golf, but didn’t get the chance to ask if he was a “big hitter.”

Watch the interview here below, which is intercut with the Bill Murray/Dalai Lama scene from Caddyshack.

Roger Hill, Cyrus From ‘The Warriors,’ Dead At 65
Stoogeypedia   |  

Roger Hill

Roger Hill, who had a small but memorable part as Cyrus, the leader of The Riffs, one of the main gangs in Walter Hill’s 1979 cult smash film The Warriors, has died at the age of 65, reports Variety. No cause of death was given.

Hill had a varied career as an actor in off-Broadway productions in the 1970s before he landed the part in The Warriors as that decade came to a close. His character of Cyrus memorably exclaims “Can You Dig It?” to the spellbound denizens of gangs who have gathered for a meeting in New York’s Central Park, which ends in tragedy and accelerates the picture’s narrative. The line has since become a memorable quote in filmdom’s history and instantly recognizable with the film.

Empress Eve   |  

Caddyshack Bill Murray Dalai Lama scene

Yesterday, the entertainment world lost a beloved figure with the death of Harold Ramis, the writer, director, and actor behind such classic film comedies like Ghostbusters, Stripes, Groundhog Day, Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation, and many more. The Chicago native’s untimely passing has left a lot of people who enjoyed his many work saddened by this great loss, including the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

In a statement released today through the White House, President Obama, who served as an Illinois Senator before becoming President, called Ramis “one of America’s greatest satirists” and talked about the effect the actor’s work had on him and his wife, Michelle Obama. The President went on to quote Caddyshack, the 1980 comedy co-written by Ramis, referencing Bill Murray’s memorable scene about meeting the Dalai Lama and being promised “total consciousness” upon his death.

You can read President Obama’s full statement and watch Bill Murray’s Dalai Lama scene from Caddyshack here below.
