Fourth Child on the Way for Stanley Tucci

The fun and games are amping up to a whole new level at Stanley Tucci‘s house.

The Hunger Games star, 53, will welcome his first child with his wife, literary agent Felicity Blunt, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

It’s been just more than two years since Tucci and Blunt — the sister of actress Emily Blunt — revealed they secretly wed in a 2012 interview. It was a happy ending for Tucci, who has three children with his late wife, Kate, who died in 2009 from breast cancer.

This new addition will have an extra adorable buddy: Emily and husband John Krasinski‘s daughter Hazel, whom they welcomed in February.

And we have a feeling Tucci’s new addition will fit right in with the rest of the family, too. “I do joke around with my kids,” he told Reuters in 2010. “We laugh a lot.”

Doctor Who "Flatline" Review: Hey, Look at Me, I’m the Doctor!

Doctor Who "Flatline" Review: Hey, Look at Me, I’m the Doctor!

Headingmini meTitleDoctor Who “Flatline” Review: Hey, Look at Me, I’m the Doctor!By Kaitlin Thomasstaff2 hours ago60 Comments1

0Doctor Who S08E09: “Flatline”In a few weeks when we dig through the remnants of Season 8 and search for the strings of overarching plots and themes one thing will be clear: Originality and fear are the key to Doctor Who’s success at this point. The show will probably never leave behind the historical adventures, like the one involving Robin Hood, or the battles with the show’s classic enemies, but I wish they would. Leaning on tried and true methods probably looks appealing for the writers at this point, and it can’t be easy to create new enemies and monsters for Doctor Who, especially on a television budget, but if I never have to see another Dalek or Cyberman it’ll be too soon. The 2D monsters of “Flatline” were both original and creepy, and I loved everything about them, from the way they were never able to take full form to the way in which they could render things 2D, like door handles (that’s straight out of Nightmare 101). After the success of “Mummy on the Orient Express,” that’s two very strong episodes in a row, and it shouldn’t be surprising then that both were written by Who newcomer Jamie Mathieson.In “Listen,” which is still Season 8’s best hour, the show tackled the universal nature of fear, and as evidenced again this week, there’s truly nothing more frightening than the unknown. The 2D monsters were frightening because, much like the Weeping Angels (who I think have also reached their saturation point, sadly), the second they touched you, it was bye bye life as you knew it. The monsters, which leeched dimensional energy from the TARDIS thus trapping the Doctor within (and making for some hilarious sight gags), couldn’t communicate, meaning we didn’t know what their purpose on Earth was. Doctor Who villains are often straight forward—they want to destroy Earth or the Doctor or something equally unoriginal and uninspiring for reasons that are probably very important to them but not at all important to viewers—but that wasn’t the case here. The Doctor thought they might have been experimenting and trying to understand humans early on, and I think that was right to an extent, but but by episode’s end, it didn’t matter if they had malicious intent or not, because they were a threat to humanity and had to go. It felt reminiscent of Season 4’s “Midnight” in that way: We didn’t know what the creatures were or what they wanted, but they were scary nonetheless.With the Doctor sidelined in the TARDIS, Clara had to step up and essentially “be the Doctor,” which is an idiom that I hope catches on to mean “suck it up and save the day.” Was this a simple “Doctor-lite” episode (think “Blink” or “Turn Left” in which the Doctor appeared only briefly for production reasons) or part of the show’s ongoing theme regarding Clara taking on more responsibility? In “Kill the Moon” she had the fate of millions of people thrust upon her when the Doctor left her to decide whether or not to kill the creature in the moon, which could have potentially been a threat to all of life on Earth, or let it live. In “Mummy on the Orient Express” Clara lied to Maisie for the Doctor, essentially becoming more Doctor-like. This week the Doctor handed her the sonic screwdriver and psychic paper and it was up to Clara to save the day. It almost feels like Clara’s being trained as a replacement for the Doctor, which I could see being possible if this were the last season of the show—the Doctor teaching Clara that anyone could be a hero would be a nice sendoff, to be honest. But since that’s (probably) not the case, and since we already have the character River Song who was essentially a female time-travel rival, I’m confused as to what the endgame is for Clara’s character and this storyline.While I enjoyed this Clara-centric outing and watching her pretend to be the Doctor, Clara needing the Doctor’s approval was unflattering to her character. She saved the world by tricking the monsters into energizing the TARDIS thus freeing the Doctor so he could send them back to their own dimension, but why does Clara need the Doctor to tell her she did a good Doctor impression? He eventually relented and then told her “goodness” had nothing to do with it (which is an entirely different discussion), but everyone wants to be valued and appreciated, and everyone should hear they did something well every once in awhile, but when you have to ask for the praise, it’s not worth it. The people in your life should appreciate you, especially if you save their life, without you having to ask for said appreciation.I’m happy to see that the show hasn’t completely forgotten the strain that’s been put on the Doctor and Clara’s friendship over the course of the season, but this wasn’t the way to show it. Clara needing the Doctor to appreciate her, or needing him to admit that he needs her, is off-putting and also, I think, slightly out of character for who she is now. It reminded me far too much of her past as the Impossible Girl, where her only purpose in life was to save the Doctor, and I hate the idea that the series is once again suggesting, no matter how subtly, that Clara exists to save the Doctor, or that her entire existence is defined by him. Been there, done that, got the misogynistic t-shirt to prove it.The relationship between Clara and the Doctor is still fragile at best and after Clara’s outburst in “Kill the Moon” they keep tip-toeing around their issues instead of addressing them head on. When Peter Capaldi was cast as the Doctor, I had hope that the series would leave behind the sillier drama for more adult fare. With an older actor in the role it meant the “boyfriend factor” would be all but erased, but it didn’t occur to me that the series would just replace it with another teen soap storyline. This week the Doctor found out that Clara has been lying to him about Danny and his supposed acceptance of her traveling with him, and surprise, the Doctor wasn’t really all that happy about being lied to. I have a feeling Danny probably won’t be too happy with Clara when she gets back to Coal Hill, either.To be honest, if I knew this was how this storyline was going to play out, I don’t think I’d have been as excited about the ending of “Kill the Moon.” I still think the Doctor deserved to have his ass handed to him, and I like that there’s a character component to the series so it’s not just the Doctor and Clara hanging out and saving the world, but Clara feels like she lost whatever inner strength she had the instant she walked out the TARDIS door and into Danny’s arms. It’s like she’s in an emotionally abusive relationship, but she can’t leave because her CDs are still in the TARDIS. This isn’t the first time a relationship with the Doctor has been unhealthy for a companion, but with each passing episode, I find myself hoping more and more that Clara will pull a Martha and find the strength to leave him. The Doctor needs a companion—Clara is his conscience and she takes care of him—but until he respects her and appreciates her, I can’t imagine why she should stay.All of this is to say that while I enjoyed the heck out of “Flatline” on episodic scale, I’m struggling with the Doctor and Clara’s relationship now, and I worry that soon it will spill over and taint my opinion of the areas where I think the show is otherwise succeeding. I love you and appreciate you, Doctor Who, but I’m going to need you to step it up. Let’s all talk like adults and fix our problems instead of ignoring them and hoping they’ll go away.NOTES– Earlier this season, I think some of you theorized that Missy was the woman from the shop who gave Clara the TARDIS’ phone number and who placed the ad in the paper in “Deep Breath.” This week’s tag in which she was checking on Clara via what appears to be an iPad of some sort (???), seemed to confirm that (she even called her “My Clara”), but why? If she is, what’s her purpose for throwing Clara and the Doctor together, which as Clara described to Rigsy as being in the wrong place at the wrong time? What’s her end game? We’re closing in on the end of Season 8, so I suspect we’ll be barreling toward an explosive season finale soon enough, but right now none of the Missy puzzle pieces fit together. Let me here your theories!thekaitling:list:doctor-who-what-did-you-think-of-flatline/

Specialty Box Office: ‘Birdman’ Soars to No. 2 Theater Average of 2014

Specialty Box Office: ‘Birdman’ Soars to No. 2 Theater Average of 2014

In a case of life imitating art, Birdman soared in its bicoastal debut for former Batman star Michael Keaton, who plays a washed-up superhero movie star trying to rehabilitate his career by launching a show on Broadway.The dark comedy, from director Alejandro G. Inarritu, grossed an estimated $415,000 from four theaters in New York and Los Angeles for a whopping screen average of $103,750, the best showing so far this year after Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which posted a record-breaking theater average of $202,792 earlier this year. (This year’s other indie hit, Boyhood, posted a screen average of $77,524 when launching in five locations in July.)It’s also one of the best showings in two years if Sunday’s estimates hold. Birdman, hoping to be a prominent awards player, now has to hold up as it wings its way into other top markets.Read more Michael Keaton on Getting ‘Spooked’ by Oscar Buzz After Nearly 40-Year CareerFox Searchlight and New Regency partnered on the film, starring Keaton opposite Edward Norton, Naomi Watts and Emma Stone.”I think to see him in this part was really gratifying for people,” said Searchlight distribution chief Frank Rodriguez.Keaton’s box office record has been decidedly mixed over the last two decades since starring in Batman Returns in 1992 and Batman in 1989.Birdman isn’t Keaton’s first indie effort. He both directed and starred in the 2008 drama, The Merry Gentleman, which quickly disappeared, opening to $74,981 in 24 theaters and topping out at $347,000.Two years earlier, Keaton played the lead in indie film Game 6, which fared even worse, opening to $9,610 from four theaters for an average of $2,402. Game 6 also starred Keaton as an aspiring playwright, although in that film, his character sets out to kill a critic who skewered his last play.Read more New York Film Fest: ‘Birdman’ Cast on Superheroes, Theater and How “Being a Celebrity Is S—”Rodriguez said Birdman’s strong opening was the culmination of several factors, including stops at the Venice, Telluride and New York film festivals, and a massive publicity blitz by the cast in the days leading up to the movie’s release.”It’s also a cinematic triumph,” said Rodriguez, in reference to Inarritu and Gravity cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki’s decision to make the movie seem as if it was shot in one long take.While an ode to Broadway, Birdman’s top-grossing theater was the Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles, followed by the Angelika Film Center in New York, the Landmark in Los Angeles and Lincoln Square AMC in New York. Next weekend, Birdman opens in an additional 18 markets, including San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego, Boston, Washington, D.C., Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas.Elsewhere at the specialty box office, Roadside Attractions and Justin Simien’s satirical dramedy Dear White People enjoyed a strong start, earning $338,000 from 11 theaters in select markets for a location average of $30,702.Dear White People, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, follows four African-American students at an Ivy League university whose lives converge when controversy erupts over an African-American themed Halloween party thrown by white students. The film stars Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon P. Bell and Kyle Gallner.Read more ‘Dear White People’ Director on Making a Comedy About Race and Spike Lee’s HeroismElsewhere, Alex Ross Perry’s 2014 Sundance entry Listen Up Philip, starring Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss and Jonathan Pryce, opened in two theaters, grossing $24,291 for a so-so location average of $12,146 for Tribeca Film.Among holdovers, Bill Murray’s comedy St. Vincent expanded into a total of 68 theaters in its second outing, grossing $685,000 for a location average of $10,074 and a cume of $836,982.”St. Vincent is working very well in the suburbs, so we are going to pull the trigger next weekend and go wide,” said TWC’s Erik Lomis. “People are embracing it because it’s a feel-good movie. There’s a lot of heavy stuff in the market.”Fox International’s co-production Bang Bang celebrated the weekend by becoming the top-grossing Bollywood title of all time in North America, not accounting for inflation. The film earned $155,000 from 108 theaters for a domestic total of $2.6 million, surpassing last year’s Kick ($2.5 million).Read more Imax to Screen Bollywood Remake ‘Bang Bang!’ in IndiaThe Metropolitan’s The Met: Live in HD broadcast its second opera of the season, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, on Saturday, taking in $2.1 million from 900 North American screens.

First steps? Been there. First words? Done.

Malin Akerman‘s baby boy Sebastian has learned a rare new skill: He’s is trilingual!

“I feel like every day is a milestone, but he’s running and walking up and down steps on his own now talking three languages, so it’s amazing,” The Comeback star said at Saturday’s Environmental Media Awards, hosted at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California.

“Whenever he sees his dad he starts speaking Italian, he sees me and starts speaking Swedish, and his nanny speaks English,” she explains. “So, it’s really just amazing to watch how a child’s brain works.”

As for what surprised her most about motherhood, Akerman — who welcomed Sebastian in April 2013 with now estranged husband Roberto Zincone, an Italian actor — told PEOPLE, “everything and nothing.”

“I still to this day, every now and then, wake up and go, ‘I’m a mom? That’s crazy! I’m responsible for a person’s life? I don’t know what I’m doing!’ ” said Ackerman, 36. “I guess the most surprising, although everyone tells you, is the love that you feel for your child. You need nothing else in the world but your child. That’s it. He’s the air that I breathe.

She’s also teaching her son to be responsible. At just 18 months, Sebastian is getting an early start at being eco-friendly.

“I have solar panels, I have a hybrid car,” Akerman told PEOPLE of her sustainable household habits. “We turn off light switches, which is very exciting for Sebastian because he loves turning off and on lights, so he helps me turn off the light switches when we leave a room. He’s just tall enough to reach that.”

Kristen Bell: Why We Taught Lincoln Sign Language

Kristen Bell‘s 18-month-old daughter Lincoln is already a great communicator.

“[She can say] a lot of two-syllable words, but she signs mostly because she’s really good at it,” the actress told PEOPLE at This Party Saves Lives event hosted by her company, This Bar Saves Lives, on Thursday night.

She adds, “People recommend doing signs because the baby can communicate with you and say, ‘I want an apple’ or ‘Look at the black dog,’ and you can actually form sentences.”

While Lincoln works on her signing skills, Bell, 34, and husband Dax Shepard, 39, are preparing for the upcoming arrival of their second child. The actress says her pregnancy has fortunately been a breeze — just like her first.

“Thank my lucky stars, it’s been a virtually identical pregnancy,” she shares. “Pregnancy can be really hard for women, and I’m lucky that I’m not really symptomatic. I’m okay with being on my feet and I’m lucky that my body feels really good.”

Her secret to a feel-good pregnancy? Yoga.

“I’ve found pre-natal yoga to be really unbelievably therapeutic,” she explains. “The days that I do it — even I find in my mental attitude — I’m so much happier. All pregnancy really does is contract your body in these weird ways, so that’s one thing I’ve tried to commit to.”

And while she typically maintains a healthy lifestyle, the mom-to-be has been known to occasionally indulge in what she loves most: snacks.

“I suppose I give in to more cravings because I eat pretty healthy normally, but I’ll give into a lot more snack food and potato chips here and there because why not,” Bell says.

Fortunately, the family has found a fall favorite that has plenty of flavor without the added sugar.

“The whole family is really into organic honey crisp apples in the fall — I know that sounds weirdly specific,” Bell shares. “We try to stay away from sugar and when you haven’t had a ton of sugar in a while, having an organic honey crisp apple feels like you’re having a Snickers bar.”

Why Returning to Twin Peaks Is a Bad Idea

Why Returning to Twin Peaks Is a Bad Idea

Headingno more coffee, pleaseTitleWhy Returning to Twin Peaks Is a Bad IdeaBy russmarshalek16 hours ago47 Comments4

4Two weeks ago, when the creators of the cult ’90s television program Twin Peaks, Mark Frost and David Lynch, began teasing Twitter with a potential third season of the beloved show, I was less than enthralled. And judging by the tempest of glee that spread across the internet when it was announced, a few days later, that Twin Peaks will indeed be returning to television as a Showtime event series, my negative response to the news was utterly alone, adrift in a sea of voices like a dead prom queen wrapped in plastic and left in the bay. The outpouring of excitement on the web—a multigenerational moment of unity usually reserved for the launch of new Apple products—is strange to me for a number of reasons, but the most pressing is simply this: Deep down, no one truly wants a third season of Twin Peaks. (Or, for that matter, the just-announced book that will bridge the decades-long gap between Season 2 and the upcoming Season 3.)When it debuted, Twin Peaks was so far ahead of anything else happening in mass culture at its time. Much has been made of its influence on TV, but the show also impacted the worlds of music, visual art, and fashion in a way that’s just now bubbling to the surface. As an entirely new generation of artists begins using the Palmer family and the world they lived in as a starting point for creating entirely new nebula, it’s disheartening that, rather than enthusiasm for what Twin Peaks’ 25-year wake hath wrought, we’re headed for a retread of where we’ve been, what we’ve seen, and who we’ve met before.Say what you will about the second season of Twin Peaks, or Fire Walk With Me as a film, but every moment of the series as a whole felt vital, important, and searingly new, to the point where it instantly created a nostalgia for itself. The resulting haze—a mix of discovery and Lynch’s singular ability to poke around the human brain in search of the point where fear and humor overlap—is what everyone will want and expect from a third season of Twin Peaks. But it won’t come.There are no more questions left to ask of Special Agent Cooper, of the Palmers, of the Bookhouse Boys. Throughout two seasons, a masterful movie, and an entirely new 90 minutes of footage released this year under the moniker of The Entire Mystery, the caverns in the world of Twin Peaks as we know it have been illuminated. The magic can’t be recaptured any more than the show itself can be unwatched and re-watched again for the first time.A friend of mine made a very astute statement recently. As I was talking to him about writing this piece, he said, “There’s already a new season of Twin Peaks. It’s called True Detective.” While I don’t fully agree—wonderful and strange as it was, True Detective has yet to reach a truly Lynchian high—I do believe that the world has consumed Twin Peaks and finally, finally begun assimilating and accommodating to it, building worlds from it that Lynch never could’ve dreamed of. To return to Twin Peaks, to those characters and that world, would be a huge step backward from the very zeitgeist of the series, and the zeitgeist can only move in one direction: forward. Rather than simply going back to the familiar, I know I’d rather see Lynch and Frost spend their increasingly rare time together creating something new. Neither one of them has ever been of the “Give the people what they want!” mindset, and starting now feels cheap and easy.Of course, if they DO try to break new ground, they’ll inevitably be met with protest. For example, I have no doubt that if Lynch taps a relatively unknown music producer, someone who’s been heavily influenced by the sound and soul of Twin Peaks, let’s say, to re-work the classic theme song, the outrage will be swift. When I close my eyes, I can already see the #bringbackFalling hashtag trending. And that’s exactly why a third season of Twin Peaks will never work: People want what they had when Twin Peaks was first on the air, and nothing more. They want the feelings, memories, and attachments associated to it at the time of their first viewing. I firmly believe that treating Twin Peaks’ third season like an anthology that exists within the Twin Peaks universe could yield an artistic triumph (we already know that Lynch’s 1997 film Lost Highway takes place within the Twin Peaks mythos), even if it’d be a critical failure because it wouldn’t have, for instance, “Good Ol Coop.” But a mere continuation of the original story, 25 years later, will never reclaim those twisted highs and lows that we all loved so much—and that’s really, at the heart, what we’re hungry for. We’d be better off not with a return to Twin Peaks, but with something new that has the energy, creativity, and effervescent darkness that drew us to Twin Peaks in the first place.So I beg everyone: Leave Twin Peaks as it is, like Laura—dead, wrapped in plastic. we already know the owls aren’t what they seem. I assure you we don’t want to know what they are.Russ Marshalek works in social media at Havas Worldwide and performs/produces electronic music under the moniker a place both wonderful and strange.

Seahawks trade wide receiver Percy Harvin to Jets: report

Seahawks trade wide receiver Percy Harvin to Jets: report

The New York Jets have acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks.Two people familiar with the trade told The Associated Press on Friday that Harvin, a star in last season’s Super Bowl but injury prone through his career, was headed to the Jets. The people spoke anonymously because the deal wasn’t officially announced by either club.The 26-year-old Harvin has played in only 43 career games since being a first-round pick (22nd overall) by Minnesota in 2009. He was traded to the Seahawks in 2013, appearing in just one regular-season game because of hip surgery. But he had two rushes for 45 yards and ran back the second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Seattle’s 43-8 win over Denver in the Super Bowl.The deal was first reported by Fox Sports.New York gave up a conditional draft pick.Harvin has battled a thigh injury and was listed as questionable for the Seahawks’ game at St. Louis this weekend. The Seahawks have tried to find a variety of ways to use him in their offence as a runner, receiver and on special teams, but injury woes slowed their plans.This season, Harvin has 22 receptions for 133 yards, with 12 of those catches coming behind the line of scrimmage. He has only one catch on a ball thrown more than 10 yards, according to STATS. Harvin’s average of 6 yards per catch is last among all wide receivers in the NFL averaging at least two receptions per game.He also has 11 runs for 92 yards and a touchdown, and 12 kickoff returns for 283 yards.New York’s offence has struggled and the Jets have lost six straight since opening with a win over Oakland. Harvin figures to team with Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley as the Jets’ main weapons in a so-far weak passing game with Geno Smith at quarterback.
