In the world of television, actors and actresses come and go, resulting in some of your favorite characters getting replaced by someone completely new.
Some of the more prominent examples include Michael J. Fox leaving Spin City and being replaced by Charlie Sheen, or for that matter, Charlie Sheen being replaced by Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men. A more tragic example includes Phil Hartman on NewsRadio being replaced by Jon Lovitz after the former’s untimely death.
And now we can add one more to the list, though this one seems to be more temporary. Megan Fox will be replacing Zooey Deschanel during the the fifth season of Fox’s comedy series New Girl as the titular star of the series goes on maternity leave after having her first child last month. But for fans who may be upset, this Megan Fox New Girl stint is only temporary. Read More »

We’ve had a long time to wonder what a Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film would look like. Now that the film is in theaters we can see the results: pumped-up, violent, a bit over-sexualized, and simple but not exactly faithful to either the early comics stories, or the animation that made the turtles insanely popular.
Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans), the film stars Megan Fox and Will Arnett as humans who end up in the company of four giant mutated humanoid turtles. The cast also features Pete Ploszek as Leonardo (voiced by Johnny Knoxville), Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, and Jeremy Howard as Donatello.
We’ve reviewed the film in print and podcast. Now that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out, we want to know what you think. Spoilers are encouraged in the open comment thread below. Read More »
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in theaters very soon, but Paramount still wanted to prove to Comic-Con that after years and years of controversy, they’ve made a winner. According to co-creator Kevin Eastman, the movie is “absolutely fantastic” and to prove it the producers (Andrew Form and Brad Fuller), director (Jonathan Liebsman) and stars (Megan Fox and Will Arnett) showed up to present not one, but two extended clips from the film. Each one was a big action sequence that gave a much better idea than the trailers of the look, attitude and tone of the movie, and the Turtles themselves. Below, read about the two Ninja Turtles scenes with some impressions. Read More »
After years of speculation and controversy, the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer is finally here.

We hear Shredder (William Fichtner) talk about creating heroes with reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and then, there they are. Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello and Raphael. Well, not all of them together. Not in this short tease for the August 8 release. But you get a pretty good idea. Check it out below Read More »

The Call of Duty franchise is consistently successful because gamers expect a certain level of quality.

The biggest “of course” news of the day comes from the set of the Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. At one point the film was going to be called Ninja Turtles, but script issues (and just a dose of Internet venom) delayed the film and changed some key elements. One of those changes is the title, which thanks to the set photo above, we can now resume discussing under the title Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Also, though Megan Fox‘s April O’Neil wasn’t wearing her trademark yellow on set earlier in the week, that has since been amended. Check out the images below. Read More »
