_rbdave73dj1_hires219Just in time for Halloween, musical grave-robber BARRY MANILOW is releasing MY DREAM DUETS, a collection of cover songs technologically remastered to include a blend of his vocals with the original recordings made famous by some of the most iconic (and deceased) vocalists of the 20th century.

Beautifully produced, the collection features new orchestrations of songs made famous by the likes of ANDY WILLIAMS, LOUIS ARMSTRONG, JUDY GARLAND, MAMA CASS, DUSTY SPRINGFIELD, WHITNEY HOUSTON, JOHN DENVER and MARILYN MONROE. Every bit a valentine to eras gone by, the collection is a major accomplishment and a welcome addition to the MANILOW discography.

During his recent publicity tour to promote the new collection, MANILOW talked about how the project came to pass.


MY DREAM DUETS is available now wherever music is sold.

gotham_ver46Gwen Stefani is quickly becoming one of the most beloved judges on television. She is currently winning fans and critics over being a coach/judge on the NBC hit music reality series, The Voice.

Stefani, one of the most successful women ever in the music industry, didn’t know if she wanted to be on The Voice. When Stefani was offered the gig it was at a very busy time in her life, not only being a mother and a wife, she was also pregnant with her third child. But accepting the job on the show was an easy answer for her, and one she doesn’t have any regrets about. (Click on the media bar below to hear Gwen Stefani)

The Voice airs Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.

gotham_ver45Opening this Friday on Halloween, is the original Saw film, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary since it was first released. The franchise spun off six sequels in total, but it was the first Saw film that horror movie audiences seemed to like the most.

Nobody could have predicted Saw’s box office success, including its star, Cary Elwes, who recalls that not even the cast or filmmakers could have predicted the huge impact the film made. (Click on the media bar below to hear Cary Elwes)

gotham_ver44Actor ROBIN LORD TAYLOR is impressing both fans and critics with his portrayal of Oswald Cobblepot on the new hit FOX series GOTHAM. As one of the many proto-villains in this jam-packed origin story, Cobblepot will eventually go on to become Batman arch-nemesis The Penguin.
A relatively unknown actor, TAYLOR has actually guest starred on such highly acclaimed series as THE GOOD WIFE, LAW & ORDER: SVU, PERSON OF INTEREST and THE WALKING DEAD. In addition to that, he and pal BILLY EICHNER co-created and co-starred in CREATION NATION: A LIVE TALK SHOW which they performed at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

A certified scene stealer, TAYLOR is a stand-out as the much put-upon Cobblepot and he’s well aware of the responsibility that goes along with portraying one of the DC Universe’s most notorious bad guys. We recently sat down with him to talk about the new series and he admitted his good fortune as well as playing to the fans.

GOTHAM airs tonight on FOX.

_rbdave73dj1_hires218Returning next Sunday (it’s been bumped tonight for the World Series) to FOX, stumbling sitcom MULANEY continues to put on a brave front as it struggles with the ratings. Recently cut back from its original order of 16 episodes to 13, production has ostensibly stopped and it’s been reported that already one cast member, FORTUNE FEIMSTER, has moved on to a series on ABC. Inspired by the daily life experiences of former Saturday Night Live writer-turned-stand up comic JOHN MULANEY, the show just isn’t catching on with viewers despite a cast that includes MARTIN SHORT, ELLIOTT GOULD, NASIM PEDRAD, ZACK PEARLMAN and SEATON SMITH.

We recently sat down with iconic comic actor MARTIN SHORT who talked about his comedic roots and admitted that doing classic stand-up isn’t really in his comfort zone.

MULANEY returns next Sunday night on FOX.

_rbdave73dj1_hires217Currently in theaters and holding its own on the box-office charts after three weeks of release, GONE GIRL is author GILLIAN FLYNN’s own big screen adaptation of her best-selling novel of the same name and tells the story of the investigation into the mysterious disappearance and possible murder of a seemingly happily married young woman. Directed by DAVID FINCHER, the film stars BEN AFFLECK, ROSAMUND PIKE, NEIL PATRICK HARRIS and TYLER PERRY.

More than just a simple mystery, GONE GIRL manages to be a topical observance (and occasional indictment) of modern marriage, morals, social media and tabloid journalism. As the husband who is at first romanticized and then vilified by the tabloid press, BEN AFFLECK seems to be treading on slightly familiar soil. During the recent press tour to promote the film, AFFLECK noted that the swipes taken at tabloid media in GONE GIRL did not go unnoticed by him.

GONE GIRL is in theaters now.

_rbdave73dj1_hires216Based on the popular DC Comic Book character introduced in THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING (1984) and promoted to lead in the HELLBLAZER series (1988), CONSTANTINE debuts tonight on NBC and centers on a street-wise ’supernatural advisor’ with a keen sense of cynical snark, an ability to use his wits to thwart evil and a commitment to defending humanity against the dark forces from beyond.

While considered by many to be a ’superhero’, CONSTANTINE is a rarity in that he doesn’t wear a traditional costume or possess any ’superpowers.’

But rather than try to describe him ourselves we figured we’d deliver it straight from the sorcerer’s mouth. We recently sat down with Welsh actor and series star MATT RYAN who gave us his take on his character of CONSTANTINE.

CONSTANTINE debuts tonight on NBC.

_rbdave73dj1_hires215In theaters now and riding high at the top of the box-office charts, FURY is a World War II action/adventure set during the last days of the war and centered on a (mostly) hardened tank crew moving into Nazi territory for one final hurrah. Written and directed by DAVID AYER, the stellar cast includes SHIA LaBEOUF, LOGAN LERMAN, JON BERNTHAL, MICHAEL PENA, JASON ISAACS, JIM PARRACK and BRAD WILLIAM HENKE.

In a performance some are calling a ‘revelation’, LOGAN LERMAN is a stand-out as the fresh-faced, naive, newbie who puts the crew at risk. Known for his work in the short-lived television series JACK & BOBBY as well as such films as the PERCY JACKSON series and THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, LERMAN has pretty much grown up in front of an audience.

During his recent publicity tour to promote FURY, LERMAN talked about the film and described his character in it.

FURY is in theaters now.
