Salma Hayek: Adam Sandler Sets Great for Kids

When it came to making her comedy debut, Salma Hayek was more than happy to put her faith in Adam Sandler‘s latest film, Grown Ups.

“I said yes to this movie at the beginning just because I am an Adam Sandler fan and I really liked the script, and I am glad now this is my first big comedy,” the actress tells The Vancouver Sun.

“You want movies your children can watch, and also that your children can have fun with, and enjoy the experience of shooting it.”

And according to Hayek, that goal was met — and surpassed!

'American Idol' on Rolling Stones night: How did the Top 12 fare?

'American Idol' on Rolling Stones night: How did the Top 12 fare?
"(I Haven't Been Able to Get No) Satisfaction" from most of the current crop of American Idol finalists over the past three weeks. And though I'm not sure tonight's telecast turned that trend on its head, at least the bulk of the dozen performances didn't use the pages of the Rolling Stones songbook to line the spattered birdcage that season 9 has been. [Warning: Spoilers Ahead, west-coast Idoloonies!] What we saw happening tonight was a tightening of the pack, a heating up of the raging battle for fifth through tenth place, as singers from Casey James to Lacey Brown to Paige Miles to Lee Dewyze gave a'iight-to-decent performances.

'American Idol' meets the Rolling Stones: What should the Top 12 sing?

'American Idol' meets the Rolling Stones: What should the Top 12 sing?
The American Idol season 9 finals are upon us, and you know what that means, right? Overpowering accompaniment from the AI band and backup singers? Check. Kara touching Simon inappropriately in front of a larger live audience? Sadly, check. And, of course, crazy-preposterous-cool theme nights! Since, apparently, Ken Warwick and Cecile Frot-Coutaz did not read my gallery of 18 Utterly Awesome New Idol Theme Nights, the Top 12 will kick off on Tuesday night with the music of the Rolling Stones. And while it's always scary when cherished rock standards are placed in the clammy, trembling paws of singers like Katie Stevens and Aaron Kelly,

Scoop: Forest Whitaker to headline 'Criminal Minds' spin-off!

Scoop: Forest Whitaker to headline 'Criminal Minds' spin-off!
Oscar winner Forest Whitaker is nearing a deal to headline CBS' in-the-works spin-off of Criminal Minds, sources confirm to me semi-exclusively. Whitaker would play Cooper, the new team's fiercely loyal and intensely private leader. A former star profiler in the Bau, Coop's been off the grid for the last eight years — leaving only a trail of rumors in his wake. Minds 2.0 will follow the NCIS/NCIS: La model in that the new team will be introduced in an episode of Minds this spring before being launched into their own show next fall. Seasoned industry professionals like myself refer to it as a "planted" spin-off.

JJ Abrams, an EW Entertainer of the Decade, on 'Star Trek,' 'Lost,' and his collaborators
Alias. Lost. Fringe. Mission Impossible 3. Cloverfield. Star Trek. All in all, writer/director/producer JJ Abrams had a pretty sweet decade. That’s why we at Entertainment Weekly named him one of the Entertainers of the Decade in our Best of the Decade issue, on stands now. In particular, 2009 was a peak year for the 43-year-old Abrams thanks to Star Trek, a global box-office smash that revitalized a lagging pop culture franchise. Abrams — an unabashed Star Wars guy — had been a Trek shrugger himself, but fell in love with the world the more he worked on it. “I didn’t
