Naturally, instead of rejoicing, Dean (Jensen Ackles) is filled with suspicion – how the hell did Cass get out of Purgatory? – and guilt, because Dean didn’t get Cass out of Purgatory himself. This happens in the midst of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean trying to track down the connection between seven people who have vanished in […]Read On »

Still, it’s clear who should stay and who should go now, but will the fans agree? Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani absolutely stupefied the audience with an amazing if not the best […]Read On »

In the venerable videogame franchise STREET FIGHTER, M. Bison is a Boss, aka top villain, character. M. Bison appears as himself in Disney’s new 3D animated hit WRECK-IT RALPH. Without providing big spoilers, let’s just say that we see a very different side of M. Bison in RALPH than we see in STREET FIGHTER. Actor Gerald Rivers has been the voice of M. Bison for any iterations of STREET FIGHTER. We caught up to him on the WRECK-IT RALPH red carpet, where he was extremely cordial and friendly in discussing voicing M. Bison’s guest turn in RALPH. ASSIGNMENT X: How […]Read On »

While Renner is an amazing dramatic actor, doing live TV is not necessarily his strong suit, although when his piano failed to play during his monologue, he handled himself quite well until the problem was fixed. That said, most of the sketches were terrible this […]Read On »
