The actor, who will next star in The Servant for Apple TV+, told Entertainment Tonight that he remembers “sparks” flying between his co-stars Emma Watson and Tom Felton. “There was always something (between Watson and Felton),” Grint, 31, said. “There was a little bit of a spark”.

It was like any kind of playground romance,” he added. Grint went on to describe his own time on set, however, as “spark-free”. He also admitted to not watching any of the eight Harry Potter films during his time working on them only recently did he watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. “You watch us grow up through all the awkward teenage stages, and it’s not something that I’ve ever really wanted to revisit,” Grint confessed as to why he’d never seen any of … [Read more...] about Rupert Grint says ‘sparks flew’ between Tom Felton and Emma Watson on set
In the opening minutes of season two of Fox’s The Masked Singer, host Nick Cannon announces, “Time to get weird,” from behind a bejeweled mask and, well, this show at least deserves points for self-awareness. The hit reality singing competition is back after a successful first season. More recently, the network indulged in a bit of confusing, shameless self-promotion at the Emmys when someone in an egg costume joined Samantha Bee and that guy from Workaholics onstage for a lackluster musical performance. The Egg is back in The Masked Singer season premiere, wearing a snazzy white suit and Humpty Dumpty mask to perform his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance.” Egg eventually faces off against a wisecracking skeleton in a top hat who offers a growly interpretation of Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle.” Esteemed reality TV judge Nicole Scherzinger describes the performance as “soulful.” Robin Thicke, of “Blurred … [Read more...] about Clueless Judges Ensure ‘The Masked Singer’ Is Hilarious
The Voice is a hit. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about that. It’s almost singlehandedly carrying NBC with its strong ratings and water-cooler presence. It’s the first of the endless stream of American Idol copycats to finally compete with the reality-TV juggernaut in terms of popularity and relevance, even outdrawing the longtime Goliath in ratings some weeks. But at least in one crucial measure, The Voice is not a success. Like American Idol, The Voice is a talent competition. Its mission is to find the next great recording artist, just as Idol discovered Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Katharine McPhee, Kellie Pickler, Daughtry, Clay Aiken, Adam Lambert, Scotty McCreery, and, as recently as last year, Phillip Phillips. Now about to crown its fourth winner, The Voice has discovered ... exactly no one. That is, not one contestant from the show—winner or otherwise (and who even remembers the names of the three past winners?)—has made so much … [Read more...] about Danielle Bradbery Wins ‘The Voice.’ But She Won’t Be a Star.
It’s an interesting choice, to make a singing competition TV show with hardly any good singing in it. It’s also the only interesting thing about The Four, a clunky The Voice knockoff and the first thing to make the upcoming American Idol revival seem like a good idea. Fox’s much ballyhooed reality show premiered Thursday night with all the wanton confidence of a wrecking ball—and nearly as destructive. A cacophony of celebrity ego, bombastic production, and misguided cruelty, The Four purports to reinvent the singing-competition TV series for a modern audience and industry but is actually the worst kind of derivative: the kind with the irritating braggadocio of thinking it’s fresh. And, because it bears repeating, it doesn’t even showcase much good singing! To be fair, the series is upfront in admitting that this is intentional. “I’m looking for someone who isn’t necessarily the greatest singer in the world,” Charlie Walk, a … [Read more...] about Sorry, Diddy: ‘The Four’ Is the Worst ‘American Idol’ Rip-Off Yet
