He tells ABC News Radio, "I didn't think that people would get it...and the amazing producers behind it put it in a way that people could understand it. It's entertaining, it's educational."Cuban, who joined Shark Tank during its third season, is also surprised by its longevity. He says, "Honestly when I came on I thought this was just a business show, it'll be interesting, I'll have some fun, and I'll do my three episodes and it'll be over.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” Trailer Debuts During “Scandal”

“Fifty Shades of Grey” Trailer Debuts During “Scandal”

Focus Features/Universal Pictures(NEW YORK) — Gladiators -- that is, fans of ABC's Scandal -- got an extra eyeful during the show Thursday night, as the full-length trailer to the eagerly anticipated adaptation Fifty Shades of Grey made its debut during the drama. Set to Beyonce's "Haunted," the coming attraction only hints at the sexy content that made the E.L. James book a bestseller and the first in a hit trilogy. The snippet centers on the budding -- and eventually passionate -- relationship between billionaire Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan, and Dakota Johnson's Anastasia Steele, the young woman whose eyes are opened thanks to Grey's penchant for sexual bondage and dominance."My tastes are very singular," Grey says. "You wouldn't understand." 

"Enlighten me then," Steele says, before Grey opens the locked door to his sex toy-filled "playroom." The Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed film also stars Jennifer Ehle, Rita Ora and Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden.It will hit theaters on Feb. 13, 2015 -- just in time for Valentine's Day.

Movie Review: “Beyond the Lights” (Rated PG-13)

Movie Review: “Beyond the Lights” (Rated PG-13)

Relativity(NEW YORK) — Done no favors by a marketing campaign that reeks of “been there done that,” Beyond the Lights is a surprising film buoyed by a terrific performance from star Gugu Mbatha-Raw, opposite the vastly underrated Nate Parker. Mbatha-Raw (Belle) plays Noni, an up-and-coming pop singer who’s just starting to blow up, thanks to a collaboration she does with a rapper named Kid Culprit, played by real rapper Machine Gun Kelly. Noni is gifted, blessed not only with a gorgeous voice, but looks to match. Not helping, her overbearing mother and manager, Macy (Minnie Driver), encourages her child to show more skin than singing talent. When we first meet Noni, she’s a lost soul, drowning in her own ocean of over-sexualized hype. She’s just won her first Billboard award, she’s dating Kid Culprit, and seemingly has everything she’s ever wanted. That’s when she decides to leap off her hotel balcony. Don’t worry, she never makes it to the ground: the police officer assigned to her hotel room grabs her as she falls. She wants to let go, but the officer, Kaz, played by Parker, looks her in the eyes and says, “I see you.” Noni allows him to pull her to safety. The rumors start to fly that Noni tried to throw herself off the balcony. Macy buys Kaz’s uneasy silence with a $10,000 check, and at a press conference they tell the world Noni was drunk and slipped. Noni is drawn to Kaz and it soon becomes clear why. He’s an intelligent, confident, no BS, quietly ambitious dude who hopes to affect change by running for office. These two, of course, fall for each other, but there are plenty of obstacles standing in the way of their finding happiness together. I love the job writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood does here, sure-handedly presenting a story that unfolds like that moment up on that balcony, with Noni ready let go as Kaz struggles to save her. She keeps the cameras close and the dialogue economical, finding the truth in her actors’ eyes. It helps that in Mbatha-Raw, Parker and Driver, she has three actors who excel at delivering truth. Had Beyond the Lights been much less predictable and allowed the protagonist to be even more independent when finding her truth, it would’ve been a truly special movie, with something a little more important to say.  That said, it’s still a solid and entertaining film that tugs at the heart. Three-and-a-half out of five stars.

Movie Review: “Dumb and Dumber To” (Rated PG-13)

Movie Review: “Dumb and Dumber To” (Rated PG-13)

Universal(NEW YORK) — Humor is subjective, and I strongly subject to Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s Dumb and Dumber To. (Thanks for allowing my small tribute to the movie’s fondness for malapropisms.) The plot: for 20 years, Harry (Jeff Daniels) has been visiting Lloyd (Jim Carrey) every week in a nursing home, where Lloyd has been in a catatonic state since the first movie. Right away, we’re treated to the first two Farrelly Brothers’ trademark gross-out visual gags, both of which involve Lloyd’s bladder catheter, and its forced removal.  If you’ve seen the trailer, you know Lloyd’s catatonia was only a two-decade-long joke he played on Harry, which Harry found “awesome!” Harry needs a kidney but can’t find a donor. He turns to his Asian parents for help but is crestfallen when they inform him he was adopted -- a telegraphed joke, but funny nonetheless. Instead, his father gives Harry a box of his old mail, which includes a postcard from Fraida Felcher (Kathleen Turner), informing Harry she’s pregnant. The postcard was sent more than 20 years ago which, Lloyd deduces, means Harry has an adult child who probably has a kidney to donate.  Turns out Harry has a daughter, named Penny (Rachel Melvin), and when Fraida shows Harry and Lloyd a picture of her, Lloyd falls in love -- which will, of course, cause tension between our two favorite idiots. Fraida also informs them that she gave Penny up for adoption.  So off go Harry and Lloyd to track down Penny, while avoiding a diabolical plan by Penny’s stepmother, Adele (Laurie Holden) and her lover (Rob Riggle) to kill Penny’s father, a rich scientist, and inherit his fortune. This is where I tell you how much I liked Dumb and Dumber, how I consider There’s Something About Mary a classic, and how Kingpin is one of my all-time favorite comedies. I like the Farrelly Brothers. That said, this is also where I tell you I didn’t laugh out loud once while watching Dumb and Dumber To. I giggled quietly and smiled a lot, but not one visceral, honest-to-goodness, uncontrollable laugh. Seeing Harry and Lloyd, 20 years later, is on the one hand nostalgic and comfortable, but it also at times feels desperate, which is in turn awkward and uncomfortable. Even so, the years haven’t diminished Carey and Daniels’ ability to play these characters.  It has, however, diminished the Farrellys’ ability to be original. They’re victims of their own amazing and hilarious success, and Dumb and Dumber To feels like they’re trying too (to?) hard to recapture the magical, winning formula of their early films.  In the end, Dumb and Dumber To is like a mildly amusing, 50-year-old guy in a bar, dressed like a hipster, awkwardly hitting on 21-year-old girls: it’s kind of funny, but it’s also kind of depressing. Two-and-a-half out of five stars. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Why Idina Menzel Calls John Travolta’s Flub ‘The Best Mistake That’s Ever Happened to Me’

Why Idina Menzel Calls John Travolta’s Flub ‘The Best Mistake That’s Ever Happened to Me’

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- At the Oscars this past March, John Travolta famously flubbed Idina Menzel's name.However, Menzel -- or, as Travolta called her, "Adele Dazeem" -- has a great attitude about it."It’s the best mistake that’s ever happened to me," she told Redbook magazine. "Just having the kind of success where people might know my name — my real name! It took me a long time to stop chasing it and just embrace it." These days, Menzel's name is bound to be heard more and more as the Frozen star, 43, is promoting her new holiday album, starring in her Broadway show, If/Then, and of course, being a mother to her son with her ex-husband, Taye Diggs. Balancing work with motherhood can be tough."The guilt is the thing that we as women all feel, whether we stay at home or we work. There are a lot of double standards with the way the men in our lives see how we make those choices," she said. "I think there’s an accounting for how much time I spend with my son, and men don’t have to account for how much time they spend with their child. It hurts to feel that’s a judgment being made. Because we’re already judging ourselves."Fitting in a dating life, then, has been nearly impossible."I’m open to it. I just don’t have a lot of time," she said. "They’d have to meet me at, like, midnight after the show, and that’s kind of slutty, isn’t it?"

Jeffrey R. Staab/CBS ©2011 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved(NEW YORK) -- Poppy Montgomery's baby boy is here!

The Unforgettable star and her husband, Microsoft executive Shawn Sanford, welcomed a son, Gus Monroe Deveraux Sanford, on Tuesday, her rep told People. He weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz. and was 20.5 inches long.

Montgomery, 42, announced this past July that she was expecting a boy.

"I've been hiding it until this very moment," she said during appearance on Late Show with David Letterman. "I've been filming my show! I’ve been doing all my stunts and running and leaping, but I haven’t told anybody because I didn't want them to treat me differently, but I do [want some special treatment]. I want people to give me their seats. I want them to open doors."

Channing Tatum and Michael Strahan Dish on New “Magic Mike” Film

ABC/Adam Taylor(NEW YORK) -- Michael Strahan will make his big-screen debut alongside Channing Tatum in next year's Magic Mike XXL, and the experience on set was somewhat scarring for the talk show host.When Tatum, 34, made an appearance on his talk show, Live with Kelly and Michael, Strahan admitted he was nervous."I had a little post-traumatic stress disorder when he came out," Strahan said with a laugh. "When he came out, I started sweating. He's seen me do unmentionable things.”

Despite his experience with the genre, filming the stripper movie had a profound effect on Tatum, too. Upon sitting down, he had one question for Strahan: "What was the first thing you ate after it [the filming] was all over?""I was good for a while," Strahan, 42, replied, adding that he still tries to eat clean, most of the time. "But the first thing, a burger. A burger. I had a good burger, man."

Why Kim Kardashian Decided to Show Full-Frontal Nudity

Why Kim Kardashian Decided to Show Full-Frontal Nudity

Paper Magazine(LOS ANGELES) -- The photo designed to "break the Internet" was apparently Kim Kardashian's idea.Mickey Boardman, editorial director of Paper magazine, told Yahoo! Style: "Kim’s attitude was, ‘If we’re gonna do it, let’s really go there.’"He continued, "And it was her idea to take off her clothes and show more than her butt. But we didn’t say, ‘Let’s do a cover with your butt hanging out.’ She said she was willing to take her clothes off and one thing led to another.”The magazine Wednesday night posted two more revealing photos from the shoot. In one, she is fully naked, showing everything from the front."We know you came for the article. @kimkardashian shot by #JeanPaulGoude for our #BreakTheInternet issue. Click for the #NSFW image in our bio," the mag posted on Instagram.There's another photo where she poses from the side and shows off her butt a little, too. But it was the photo from Wednesday that completely shows her backside that got the Internet buzzing.As for any retouching to the photos, the Paper mag chief says there was "much less [retouching] than people think. That’s really what she looks like. That’s her. I would say it’s the normal amount of retouching that’s on a normal cover.”A lot was also made about the shininess and oil on her butt.“It was the makeup artist," who put the oil on, Boardman said. "It was someone who she works with a lot so she felt comfortable."

Brooke Shields Reveals Losing Her Virginity to Dean Cain in New Book

Ron Galella, Ltd./WireImage(NEW YORK) — Brooke Shields has a new tell-all book coming out later this month titled There Was a Little Girl that explores her complicated relationship with her mother, her crazy life as a child star and her celebrity romances.In an excerpt from the book, appearing in the November issue of People magazine, the actress and model also reveals losing her virginity to Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman star Dean Cain when she was 22 years old.Shields, 49, reveals that when she met Cain at Princeton University, they were "instantly crazy" about each other. She writes in the book that they were, "always holding hands and trying to find ways to be alone and kiss," adding, "but poor guy, I made him wait."The Suddenly Susan actress goes on to write that holding out "was more tortuous for him because I was used to shutting that part [of me] off."Shields explains she was always more focused on her ever-present mother, noting, "I felt as if she was watching."After they had sex, Shields writes she became so overwhelmed, she jumped out of the bed."I actually kind of tumbled off it and started running," she recalls, adding, "I was buck naked streaking down the hallway and running like I had just stolen someone's wallet."She continues, "I didn't know where I began and where my mother ended, and that meant I didn't know how to fit Dean in." The pair broke up soon after.Brooke tells People, she recently called Dean, 48, to let him know she was including the episode in her book and the actor was fine with it."He said 'As long as you're happy with it, I'm comfortable with it,'" she recalls.

Jennifer Lawrence Briefly Hosts “Late Show,” Talks Strep Throat and Being Haunted

Jennifer Lawrence Briefly Hosts “Late Show,” Talks Strep Throat and Being Haunted

Lloyd Bishop/NBC(NEW YORK) — Jennifer Lawrence, late-night host? She replaced David Letterman for a brief but glorious moment on Wednesday night's episode of CBS' Late Show.As Letterman's lead guest, Lawrence tried to introduce the trailer for her latest movie, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, but it wasn't immediately available. She jokingly asked Letterman, "What do you wanna do, you want to get out of here?" Sure enough, the 24-year-old actress and the 67-year-old host stood up and walked off the set, leading into a commercial break.When the show returned, Lawrence was sitting in Letterman's seat. As she attempted to set up a Hunger Games clip, a confused J-Law quipped, "I'm so good at hosting."Earlier in the interview, she noted that she sings in the sequel, though she's self-conscious about it. She said, "I still haven't heard it but everybody's told me that it's me, because I was like, 'Will you please get Lorde to really sing it?'" Lorde curated the soundtrack and recorded songs for Mockingjay - Part 1.When Lawrence appeared on the Late Show nearly a year ago to promote the second Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire, she was suffering from abdominal discomfort -- an issue that Letterman said inspired him to undergoing tests to see if he had a similar condition. This time, the Oscar winner said, she recently overcame a bout with strep throat she had in Austria, while promoting her new film.Lawrence recalled, "My doctor was 18 or 20 wearing ripped Converse and jeans and a shirt that says, 'A real woman never lets her man leave hungry or horny.' And I was like, 'Whose little brother is giving me an IV?'"Lawrence also joked that she's crazy, judging by the voices in her head, though she added, "I don't believe them. They're always talking nonsense anyway."She did note that she once had a ghost encounter while visiting her ex-boyfriend, X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, in Africa. She said they turned off the lights in the home and set the burglar alarm on, only to have the alarm go off. They discovered a lamp turned on and an oven door open, and Hoult reacted, "Well I guess that's it," and went to bed. But Lawrence said she yelled, "OH HELL NO!" and stayed awake for the rest of the night.Letterman asked Lawrence if she plans to take time off, to which she replied that she already has, adding, "I lost my mind. It was awful." This led to a conversation about Letterman's impending retirement. She urged him to stick around: "Just keep doing this until you die...we need you." Letterman joked, "I feel the same way because I'm sitting at home a couple of weeks ago and the next thing I know I'm watching Ellen and I thought, this is not right. This is not good."You can see Lawrence in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 when it opens Nov. 21.

“Duck Dynasty” Musical in the Works

“Duck Dynasty” Musical in the Works

A&E Television(NEW YORK) — The Duck Dynasty story is coming to Las Vegas as a musical.

The New York Times reports the Robertson clan is overseeing a 90-minute show titled The Duck Commander Family Musical. The plan is for the production to open at Sin City's Rio hotel and casino in February.The Robertsons wouldn't actually star in the show; they'd be portrayed by actors.The musical will be based on Willie Robertson and his wife Korie's 2012 book, The Duck Commander Family. He tells the Times, “We’ve enjoyed the process of making a musical alongside the team who is interested in telling the Robertson family story from an outside perspective.”The Times notes that several Broadway producers are "aghast" that some colleagues are involved in the project, in light of the fact that Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson equated homosexuality to bestiality in a 2013 GQ interview.The Duck Dynasty musical is being developed by Jersey Boys producer Michael David.

Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar Mash-Up Hits the Web

Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar Mash-Up Hits the Web

Ida Mae Astute / ABC(NEW YORK) -- When Taylor Swift's album 1989 sold 1.287 million records in its first week, she celebrated by lip-syncing the Kendrick Lamar rap "Backstreet Freestyle."Now, a mash-up of the song mixed with her hit "Shake It Off" has hit the Web. (Listen to it here, but note that there is some explicit language.)"Industry experts predicted 1989 would sell 650k first week. You went and bought 1.287 million albums. AND IT'S GOT ME LIKE," Swift, 24, wrote on Instagram last week -- a lead-in to a video of her mouthing the words to Lamar's song. Sample lyric? "Goddaamn, I feel amazing, damn I'm in the matrix/My mind is living on cloud nine and this nine is never on vacation."

It's been a big week for Swift, as her video for "Blank Space," in which she plays a crazed ex-girlfriend, was released just two days ago.
