Remembering the one-of-a-kind Jerry Van Dyke

He was the younger brother of a more famous performer, but it is perfectly possible that Jerry Van Dyke was the sibling whose work you knew or liked best.

On and off television from the early 1960s to 2015, including eight seasons of “Coach” and a late-career recurring role on “The Middle,” Van…

The Powerful Reason Meryl Streep Chose Her Golden Globes Date

The Powerful Reason Meryl Streep Chose Her Golden Globes Date

Meryl Streep used her platform to give a voice to the voiceless at the 2018 Golden Globes. The actress, who is nominated for her work in The Post, showed up at the event with Ai-jen Poo, the director of Domestic Workers, an alliance which works toward building fairness and equality for women in the workplace. Before hitting the red carpet, Meryl took a selfie with Ai-jen, who said she joining the Oscar award winner to shine “a spotlight on domestic workers [and] people who are particularly vulnerable to abuse in the workplace.” Meryl was just one of many women who walked the red carpet with activists as their date in honor of the Time’s Up movement following the recent wave of sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood. Read on to see more photos of Meryl’s night out at the Globes ahead.

Kit Harington Kicks It With Emilia Clarke in LA After Getting Kicked Out of a Bar in NYC

Kit Harington Kicks It With Emilia Clarke in LA After Getting Kicked Out of a Bar in NYC

Kit Harington paired up with his Game of Thrones costar Emilia Clarke at Sean Penn‘s annual Haiti Rising gala Saturday night. The onscreen love interests posed together for cute photos at the event, during which Brad Pitt bid a healthy $120,000 to watch an episode of the hit HBO series with Daenerys Targaryen herself; the actor dropped six figures in the hopes of winning the opportunity but was outbid by a fellow guest. Bummer!

Just one night before linking up with Emilia, Kit was thrown out of NYC haunt Barfly after drunkenly trying to play a round of pool with patrons. Apparently, Kit “started banging on the table, grabbing at pool cues, and getting in people’s faces.” TMZ also reported that the actor “was asked to leave and did, but came back and finally had to be physically removed” from the bar. Bummer!

Keep reading to see more photos of Kit and Emilia together ahead of the Golden Globes.

Xscape blurs real life and reality TV on its strong reunion tour

Fond memories and reality television came to life Saturday night at the Microsoft Theater, where R&B quartet Xscape played the first of two concerts to finish a reunion tour it launched last year.

A platinum-selling operation throughout the 1990s — any R&B fan knows “Just Kickin’ It” and “Understanding”…

Even With Just 1 Song, the Black Panther Soundtrack Is Already Lit

Even With Just 1 Song, the Black Panther Soundtrack Is Already Lit

With mere weeks to go until the Feb. 16 release of Marvel’s Black Panther, excitement is at an all-time high. Now, in addition to the soaring thrills of the trailer, all the epic cast snaps, and the potential for a sequel, there’s something else to get us amped: the soundtrack!

Kendrick Lamar first hinted about his involvement with the Black Panther soundtrack by sneaking an announcement into the “Love” music video. On Jan. 4, he released the first song from the album: it’s called “All the Stars,” and it’s a collaboration with SZA. In addition to contributing a song of his own, Lamar was chosen by director Ryan Coogler to curate the rest of the soundtrack with Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith. While there aren’t additional details about the track list or other artists involved, a quick peek at the iTunes preorder page shows we can expect a total of 14 songs. Time to get pumped.

Brad Pitt Bid $120,000 to Watch an Episode of Game of Thrones With Emilia Clarke

Brad Pitt Bid $120,000 to Watch an Episode of Game of Thrones With Emilia Clarke

Brad Pitt stepped out in style for Sean Penn‘s annual Haiti Rising gala ahead of the Golden Globes on Saturday night. The actor, who recently rang in his 54th birthday, looked particularly handsome in his undone white shirt and black suit as he posed for photos and chatted with host Sean, as well as Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.

Inside, an auction was held to raise money for the J/P Haitian Relief Organization, and one experience up for bid was an opportunity to watch an episode of Game of Thrones with star Emilia Clarke, who was also in attendance at the A-list event with a few of her costars. Brad was photographed happily raising his paddle to place an opening bid of $80,000, then outbid himself to $90,000. After fellow GOT star Kit Harington “offered to sit in on the episode viewing,” according to Variety, Brad raised his own bid to $120,000. Unfortunately, another guest ended the auction at $160,000 – so we’ll never get the chance to hear about him watching the Mother of Dragons slay with the Mother of Dragons herself.

Brad certainly seemed to be enjoying himself this weekend, but we likely won’t see him at the Golden Globes on Sunday, where both of his ex-wives, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, will be presenting.
