Eric Stonestreet Confident “Modern Family” Can Tie “Frasier’s” Emmy Record

Eric Stonestreet Confident “Modern Family” Can Tie “Frasier’s” Emmy Record

ABC/Peter “Hopper” Stone(LOS ANGELES) — If ABC’s Modern Family wins the Emmy Award for best comedy again, it’ll tie the all-time leader, Frasier, with five wins. Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron Tucker on the series, said he’s confident the show is up to the task.”We hope we win. It’d be nice,” he told ABC News Radio while promoting his new partnership with Swiffer to encourage men to get clean.”I don’t know how much more love the Emmys have for Modern Family. I feel like we’ve been around long enough now and won enough Emmys individually and collectively that maybe people are getting tired of us,” Stonestreet continued. “I still think, obviously, we’re the best comedy and most well-written comedy on TV. I know the stories we tell each week, week in and week out, and I know that they’re worthy of Emmy love still. But hopefully we’ll win, and then tie, and then next year break the record.”This year, Modern Family is up against Louie, Silicon Valley, Veep, The Big Bang Theory and Orange Is the New Black.Eyebrows were raised when Netflix’s dramedy OITNB ended up in the comedy series category, as many felt it should compete in the drama series category. Stonestreet said he doesn’t mind that the hit show ended up in the category.”Where they end up is where they end up. I certainly don’t have anything to do with it,” he said. “I just think our show is funny. I think our show is well crafted, interweaved in telling multiple stories each week and I don’t know that other shows are necessarily doing that.””I think other shows are doing things we’re not doing as well. Veep is really funny. Orange Is the New Black is funny. Big Bang Theory is funny. I don’t think it’s anything better; it’s just different,” he added.Last season on Modern Family, Stonestreet’s Cam and Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s Mitch tied the knot in a two-part season finale. Stonestreet tells ABC News Radio that his onscreen same-sex relationship could bypass the honeymoon phase when the series returns Sept. 24.”I think they’ll find their balance of Cam and Mitch just kind of falling into the old married couple role, which is funny when you think about it. We’ve been married all of a few months, and all of a sudden we’re just like that old married couple, you know? But who knows what they have in store,” he pondered. “We’re always surprised each year when we return to hear the upcoming story lines and to see what the writers can create and what they want to do for our characters.” The 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Seth Meyers, will air live on NBC next Monday.

Mara Wilson Recalls Robin Williams ‘Was Different with Grown-Ups’

Mara Wilson Recalls Robin Williams ‘Was Different with Grown-Ups’

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) –  Mrs. Doubtfire star Mara Wilson was too devastated last week to talk about the death of her on-screen father, Robin Williams.However, in a new blog post, she opened up about what he was like to work when she was little.”Robin would do anything to make me and the other kids laugh,” she wrote. “He seemed to know instinctively what we would find funny, and never had to resort to saying anything that was inappropriate for children. He was, after all, a father himself.”Williams, who died of an apparent suicide on Aug. 11 at the age of 63, was, “warm, gentle, expressive, nurturing and brilliant,” Wilson wrote. To make her and her on-screen siblings laugh, he’d do voices and make jokes (“When we were filming the climactic dinner party scene, he would make his carpet bag bark like a dog under the table, then order it to be quiet,” she wrote), and even entertained them with shadow puppets that would later appear in Aladdin.However, she noted that he was shyer around adults, with her mother once telling her friends that he rarely made eye contact. (“I figured he must have been different with grown-ups,” Wilson wrote she thought at the time.) She came to the same conclusion when she reunited with Williams during a table reading of the 1998 film What Dreams May Come.”My strongest impression came when we saw each other for the first time that day. Robin crossed to me from across the room, got down to my level, and whispered ‘Hi, how are you?’ He asked how my family was doing, how school was, never raising his voice and only sometimes making eye contact,” she recalled. “He seemed so vulnerable. ‘So this is what Mom meant,’ I thought. It was as if I was seeing him for the first time. He was a person now.”After that, the two mostly lost touch, though Wilson did recall running into the actor while he filmed the 2007 movie, August Rush. At the time, Wilson could tell “he truly cared” about how she was doing.
“Many of my friends are comedians who were inspired by him, but others just loved his movies and comedy and had since their childhoods. If you can affect someone when they’re young, you are in their heart forever. It is remarkable how many lives Robin touched, and how many people said, just as I had, that he reminded them of their fathers,” she wrote, before quoting her Mrs. Doubtfire character. “I suppose — could I really end this any other way? — we’re all his goddamn kids, too.”

Taylor Swift Announces Title, Cover for Upcoming Album “1989″

ABC/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) –  After dancing with fans while debuting her new single “Shake It Off,” Taylor Swift revealed the album cover and title for her new release 1989.During a live stream on Yahoo and ABC News, Swift surprised fans and said, “I have some big news.”The first surprise was the song and the second surprise was the title and cover of the new album, which reflects the year she was born.”Having been born on Dec. 13 1989, this album is called 1989.Swift has been working on her new album for two years and said she has changed a lot over the past two years, especially delving into late 1980′s music and being influenced by that era.”The inspiration behind this record, I was listening to a lot of late 80′s pop … I really loved the chances they were taking, how bold it was,” she said. “It was apparently a time of limitless potential, the idea you could do what you want be what you want … the idea of endless possibility was kind of a theme in the last two years of my life.”The cover of the album is a Polaroid of herself, cutting off her face at the eyes with T.S. at the bottom and “1989″ at the bottom right. Swift is wearing a shirt featuring flying seagulls.”That photo you are seeing is a Polaroid we took, we took the album photos on Polaroids,” she explained. “It was kind of an accident, so I figured why not make that photo the album cover?”The album is in stores Oct. 27 and Swift said fans will actually get packets of real Polaroids inside the album — 13 each, but different packs with different photos in each.”For the record this is my very first documented pop album,” she added.

Charlie Sheen Puts Twist on Ice Bucket Challenge

Charlie Sheen Puts Twist on Ice Bucket Challenge

Frank Ockenfels/FX(LOS ANGELES) — After being challenged by Ryan Miller, the husband of his Anger Management co-star Noureen DuWolf, Charlie Sheen did what so many celebrities have done recently and took on the ALS Foundation’s Ice Bucket Challenge. But as shown in a YouTube clip, the actor put his own spin on it: instead of pouring ice over his head, he poured dollar bills.
After lifting the bucket to his head and letting the money fall out, Sheen said: “Oh wait, that’s not ice. That’s $10,000 in cash which I am donating to the ALS foundation. Because, let’s face it: ice is going to melt, but this money is going to actually help people.”
Sheen then challenged his former Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer, as well as his replacement, Ashton Kutcher, and the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, “to identically do what I just did,” adding, “Come on, it’s for a great cause.” Sheen was dismissed from Two and a Half Men in 2011, and has a contentious relationship with Lorre and Kutcher.
The Ice Bucket Challenge, a viral effort to increase awareness of ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, has been a tremendous success so far. Thanks to the efforts of both ordinary folks and celebrities, the ALS Association reported Sunday that it had received $13.3 million in contributions from July 29 through Aug. 17. According to The New York Times, that includes 260,000 new donors.

How Kim Kardashian Reacted to Meeting Khloé’s Boyfriend

How Kim Kardashian Reacted to Meeting Khloé’s Boyfriend

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — For awhile, Khloé Kardashian wanted to keep her family in the dark about her relationship with French Montana.However, when her sister Kim finally got a chance to meet Khloé’s rapper beau, it proved that there was nothing to worry about.”It is so obvious that Khloe and French are dating. They are so cute and he’s so sweet with her,” Kim Kardashian gushed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “I get why she’s hesitant on introducing anyone to the family but if she’s out and about all over the world with this guy, there’s no reason she shouldn’t share it with her family.”In an effort to get to know Montana a bit better, Kim went to a club to hang out with her sister and her new group of friends. She was pleasantly surprised and praised his group for being “so nice” and “so welcoming.”
Still, Khloé admitted that pivoting into a new relationship has been “difficult.””I’m a different person. I’m going to deal with things differently and that’s in every situation,” she said. “I’m still going to hold things closer to my heart, and maybe still keep things private for me, but it’s good that I’m slowly letting [my family] in.”

“Rising Star” Recap: The Top Six Compete, Four Contestants Advance

“Rising Star” Recap: The Top Six Compete, Four Contestants Advance

ABC(NEW YORK) — ABC’s interactive singing competition, Rising Star, continued Sunday night with three contestants advancing to next week’s finale after the East Coast vote and one additional act being sent through after the West Coast broadcast.  Two other acts were sent home.Jesse Kinch, Dana Williams and Austin French advanced after the East Coast broadcast.Audrey Kate Geiger was saved by the West Coast and also advanced to next week’s finals.Maneepat Molloy and Joshua Peavy were sent home.The top 6 acts went up against one another to compete for the highest score. The first three sang with the wall up. The act with the lowest score from that point on was placed in the “hot seat.” The next contestant then sang with the wall down, trying to beat that person’s score. Viewers who downloaded the Rising Star app were asked to vote “yes” or “no,” just as they did in the audition round.Host Josh Groban and the Rising Star experts — Kesha, Ludacris and Brad Paisley — presided over the performances. Votes from the experts only counted for one percent.Here are the highlights from Sunday night:Austin French kicked things off with OneRepublic’s “Love Runs Out.” French took the advice the experts gave him earlier to move around the stage a little more and it paid off, earning him 81 percent of the vote. Kesha voted “yes,” calling the 20-year-old Tifton, Georgia, native “infectiously cute.” Paisley also voted “yes,” calling French a natural. Ludacris added his “yes” vote, noting that during the performance, Austin moved farther off stage than any other contestant so far. French advanced to the finals.Sixteen-year-old Bangkok, Thailand, native Maneepat Molloy was the next contestant to take the stage. Earlier, she was urged by the experts to let loose and be herself. Molloy chose Sia’s “Chandelier” for her performance and was only able to collect 27 percent of the vote. Ludacris voted “no,” explaining the young singer “didn’t look as comfortable” as he would’ve liked, but complimented her on her courage in taking on such a difficult song. Brad voted “yes” because he felt she took the experts’ advice and worked on her stage presence. Kesha also acknowledged Maneepat looked nervous, but believed she “sang beautifully” and voted “yes.” Molloy was sent home.The previous Sunday night, Jesse Kinch was challenged by Paisley to show a softer side of his voice and prove he wasn’t a “one-trick pony.” That was Brad’s advice this week as well. Kinch answered the challenge, turning Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” into a power ballad that garnered 83 percent of the vote. Brad voted “yes,” commenting that Jesse “reminded everybody how great that song is.” Kesha called the performance a “God-like experience” and voted “yes.” Ludacris took Paisley’s comment a step further by saying Kinch made everyone “forget it was a Michael Jackson song.” He also voted “yes.” Kinch moved on to the finals.Dana Williams, who sang with the wall down, channeled Billie Holiday for her version of Maroon 5’s “Sunday Morning.” Before the performance, Kesha told Williams she believed in the Los Angeles native and fought to keep her in the competition. However, she wanted the 24-year-old to prove she wanted it just as bad. Dana raised the wall with 75 percent of the vote. Kesha voted “yes,” calling Williams a “diamond in the rough” and adding that this performance was “the best she’s had on this show.” Ludacris felt she proved to him that she wanted it more than anyone else on the show and voted “yes.” Paisley called the performance “emotional,” adding Dana connected with the audience better than she’d ever done in the past. Williams advanced to the finals.Next, it was Audrey Kate Geiger’s turn to “raise the wall or go home.” Earlier, Paisley called her “one of a kind,” but Ludacris and Kesha felt her stage presence needed work. She chose Roberta Flack’s “Killing Me Softly with His Song” and failed to raise the wall with only 69 percent of the vote. The judges disagreed with America. Ludacris, who voted “yes,” noted the song choice might’ve turned voters off. Otherwise, he thought the performance was top-notch. Kesha was also disappointed with the song choice, but praised Audrey’s execution. Paisley voted “yes” and urged America to save her. Geiger was sent home after the East Coast performance, but was saved by the West Coast and moves on to the finals.The last performer of the night was Joshua Peavy. Josh originally wanted to sing John Newman’s “Love Me Again.” Brad, however, wanted to hear the Georgia native sing a country song and suggested Rascal Flatts’ “What Hurts the Most.” Peavy collected 72 percent of the vote, not enough to raise the wall. Paisley was pleased with the performance and voted “yes.” Brad, who has a recording studio on his farm, even told Peavy, “If you get saved, we’ll see you next week. If you don’t get saved, come over to the farm, we’ll record something.” Ludacris voted “no,” confessing that it came down to a choice of eliminating Dana Williams or Peavy and reiterated his earlier comment that Williams wanted it more. Kesha said she was “on the fence” at first, but Joshua won her over at the end and voted “yes.” Peavy was eliminated.The Rising Star season finale airs next Sunday on ABC.

Why Joseph Gordon Levitt ‘Absolutely’ Calls Himself a Feminist

Why Joseph Gordon Levitt ‘Absolutely’ Calls Himself a Feminist

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) — Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s parents taught him about the history of feminism at a young age.Now 33, the actor was shocked to learn that there are people who proudly declare themselves anti-feminist.”What [feminism] means to me is that you don’t let your gender define who you are — you can be who you want to be, whether you’re a man, a woman, a boy, a girl, whatever. However you want to define yourself, you can do that and should be able to do that, and no category ever really describes a person because every person is unique,” the Sin City: A Dam to Kill For actor told the Daily Beast. “So yes, I’d absolutely call myself a feminist.”
Gordon-Levitt added that to him, the idea of equality for women is especially important given the history of “women suffering abuse, injustice and not having the same opportunities as men.””I think that’s been very detrimental to the human race as a whole,” he said. “I’m a believer that if everyone has a fair chance to be what they want to be and do what they want to do, it’s better for everyone. It benefits society as a whole.”

“Mrs. Doubtfire” Star Mara Wilson Remembers Her ‘Favorite Teacher’ Robin Williams

Richard Cartwright/CBS ©2013 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved(LOS ANGELES) –  When Robin Williams died, many of his former co-stars expressed their grief in prepared statements or via social media.However, his Mrs. Doubtfire co-star, Mara Wilson, wasn’t ready to do that — until now.”While Robin and I had not talked in a few years, there is no question he had a great impact on my life,” she wrote on her blog. “He was as warm and talented as everyone says, and a joy to be around. It’s as if my favorite teacher died.”
Wilson, now 27, played Williams’ youngest child in the 1993 film, Mrs. Doubtfire. When he was found dead on Monday from an apparent suicide, she said that news outlets asked her to do interviews, which she didn’t — and doesn’t — feel ready to do just yet.”Everybody grieves in their own way. When I heard about Robin’s death, I was shocked, confused, angry, regretful, and above all, sad,” she wrote. “All I wanted was to talk to my family and friends and cry.”
