Video: Ben Affleck Talks Parenthood, Being Cast As Batman

Fanboys can be real dicks. When Michael Keaton was cast as Batman back in 1988, the fanboys went ballistic. When Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker in “The Dark Knight” the fanboys bayed for his blood. Now, Ben Affleck has been cast as Batman, and the fanboy butthurt fury is worse than ever.

Tyrese Gibson Talks Fast Six

33-year-old actor Tyrese Gibson is a busy bee, although it may not seem like it to audiences.

But Gibson has a regular sideline in the music business, plus he just co-wrote a bookContinue Reading

Christopher Nolan Talks The Dark Knight Rises

Director Christopher Nolan is under a lot of pressure to deliver on the third and final (for him) Batman film. But he certainly isn’t letting it show.
