(LOS ANGELES) -- Amid all of the talk of diversity in Hollywood, American Crime star Regina King says TV provides better opportunities than does the film industry.
"There are just better stories being told," she explains to ABC Radio. "Cable just opened things up. I mean, look, when you're talking about like an American Crime, you have this opportunity, it's almost like a 10-hour movie. So you have more space to explore a character or a story than an actual movie."
Despite Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, and Spike Lee, protesting the Oscars, King says she'll tune in, and she…
(NEW YORK) -- January 27, marks the 60th anniversary of the release of "Heartbreak Hotel," which became Elvis Presley's first #1 hit on the Billboard pop singles chart. The song was among the first tracks Presley recorded for RCA Records after the label purchased his contract from Sun Records.
"Heartbreak Hotel" was written in 1955 by Mae Boren Axton -- mother of singer/songwriter Hoyt Axton -- and Tommy Durden, inspired by a newspaper story about a man who'd committed suicide and left a note that read, "I walk a lonely street." According to The Billboard Book of Number 1 Hits,…

Both Hollywood legends took part in the glitzy tribute, which was…

(PARK CITY, Utah) -- Danny Glover thinks Hollywood can solve its diversity problems by doing away with the Oscars altogether.
“Artists are the gatekeepers of truth,” Glover told Variety while promoting the indie flick Mr. Pig, which had its premiere Tuesday at the Sundance Film Festival. “[But] I don’t see diversity in film in the world at all anymore.”
Glover explained that in the 1970s, he could easily go to mainstream theaters and watch Italian, Japanese and African films. But now, big-budget movies are kicking these “real” stories out of theaters, and now all he can find is a very…

(PARK CITY, Utah) -- Bradley Cooper isn't in Park City, Utah for the annual Sundance Film Festival -- which is apparently giving a look-alike a chance to try to party in the actor's stead.
The New York Post reports the suave suspect walked into a private party for the Sundance contender White Girl on Saturday, but the celebrity subterfuge didn't last.
Organizers bounced the ersatz Oscar nominee, but not before he threatened "You're done for!" and flashed "proof" of his ID his real-life counterpart decidedly wouldn't: "He pushed a button on an iPhone and had a picture of The Hangover as his…
