Downloading has been a bone of contention for the longest time, and we will always hear different versions from the opposing camps. People will always have something to say about it, but one thing is for sure: downloading does not seem to be going anywhere in the near future.

You can watch movies any time and practically anywhere these days. It does not even have to be part of illegal downloading!

No matter what perspective you hold, though, I think you will love our list for today: the top 5 most downloaded Hollywood hunks.

The data is taken from an infographic titled Top 10 Most Pirated Movies of All Time. This is a pretty good list with lots of eye candy. My only regret: Robert Downey, Jr. did not make the cut!

Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the top-grossing movies of all time, and apparently, people who download movies love it as well. The top-billed actor, of course, is understandably one of the hunkiest in Tinsel Town. I don’t think anyone will disagree!

When it comes to entertainment and celebrities, at any one time there is almost always a pool of super influential people that seem to be either pulling all the strings or covering all of the magazines. Here’s a quick rundown of the top 10 most influential celebrities in entertainment at the moment:

Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell’s celebrity status and entertainment industry influence may have started relatively small in the UK, but he’s definitely spread his wings of late. The TV producer, entrepreneur and showbiz judge was the brainchild behind talent show The X Factor, which has now gone stateside in a massive way. As one of the main judges on the show he’s got the power to make people’s careers. Read the rest of this entry »

’21 Jump Street’ Cameo For Johnny Depp

21 Jump Street Movie

Johnny Depp has announced that he would be willing to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming 21 Jump Street movie.

The movie, being produced by Columbia Pictures stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum and is based directly off the popular ’80s TV series that gave Depp his Hollywood start.

When asked if he wanted Depp to appear in the film, Jonah said:

“We wrote a cameo for him, so we hope he does it.

MTV News interviewed Johnny Depp this past week and he said of the role:

“I’ve said I’m into it, but no one’s actually approached me…I’m in. I’m in,” while adding “I think it’d be pretty easy.”

Here’s the clip of Depp admitting he would take on a cameo role in the movie:

Are you excited to see Johnny Depp in his original role if his cameo comes to fruition?

Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides Poster

Disney today unveiled the first official poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

The 4th installment of the Pirates series once again features Johnny Depp as well as Penelope Cruz and hits theaters May 2011.


Oops! Pirates Of The Caribbean “On Stranger Tides” Script Found In Cafe

Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 with Johnny Depp

Pirates Of The Caribbean “On Stranger Tides” will be released in May 2011 but one lucky Central London Eatery customer got their hands on the script way ahead of time.

According to The Sun the script was found in the eatery, no doubt left behind by an unsuspecting worker or actor from the film.

The customer decided to hand the script over to The Sun so they could get it back to Disney (the film studio that owns the rights to the movie).

Disney proceeded to thank the customer for their honesty.

The movie stars Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as he searches for the fountain of youth.

A happy ending for Disney and a nice gesture by someone who could have taken the Gizmodo/iPhone 4 approach but instead decided to do the right thing.


Brangelina’s Viva Italiana

The Jolie-Pitt family are adapting to Italy pretty well. Angelina Jolie is busy shooting The Tourist with co-star Johnny Depp, so the actress flew her entire family to Venice to keep them close while she is busy with the film.

Brad Pitt and the kids seem to be enjoying their time frolicking around Venice and immersing in the Italian culture.

Mad Hatter Lands On EW Cover

Of course he’d make the perfect March 5 cover. Alice in Wonderland is coming out tomorrow! Johnny Depp, in his Mad Hatter character, graces this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly and it’s all about Wonderland—well, almost.

There’s the music review of the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack—yes, the one with Avril Lavigne’s new track. There’s the cover story on Johnny Depp and Tim Burton—one of the best tandems in the entertainment world.

If you’re not so hot about all the Alice hullaballoo, you can always turn the page to the Oscar predictions, the Jason Derulo spotlight, and your usual dose of EW book reviews.

Go grab your copy now! I hear there are limited bulks left. Must be the Mad Hatter’s enticing wardrobe.


The stars of Alice In Wonderland graced the Royal World Premiere in London’s Odeon Leicester Square Thursday to celebrate the opening of the much-anticipated movie.

4 Things You Should Know About Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Mia Wasikowska: Mad As a Hatter

When Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are involved, you know it’s going to be phenomenal. Of all the blockbuster hits that 2010 promises to bring, it’s Alice in Wonderland that I cannot wait to see.

Lewis Carroll’s 19th century fairy tale has been told and retold so many times, but director Tim Burton promises to bring a more visually arresting version to the big screen.

Although Johnny’s twisted take on the Mad Hatter is expected to be entertaining as always, there’s another star that could steal the spotlight—Mia Wasikowska, who plays the lead role Alice. The film has yet to be shown in March, and already the 20-year-old Australian actress is making her rounds in Hollywood.

“I think I had a similar experience to Alice,” she told Daily Record. “I was definitely thrust into a world that was unlike my own. Making the film was very bizarre and odd, and it mimicked exactly what it was like for Alice to be in Wonderland.”

She’s been pegged as one of the faces to watch in 2010, and is reportedly working on two more movies with hotshot Hollywood directors. To want to be thrust into the public life of an A-List Hollywood celebrity, they say you have to be mad as a hatter.


Johnny Depp Comes Back As Jack Sparrow

For the fourth time. The new installment to the pirates franchise is titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” and Disney says it is due in 2011. This is not the only project that Depp is working on. He has Alice in Wonderland and Tonto (Lone Ranger).


Heath’s last film will push through


Heath Ledger was still filming The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus when he died last week. Now, the production company is scrambling for ways to finish it — if only to pay tribute to the talent for someone everyone deeply respected and loved.

Costar Christopher Plummer confirmed reports that Ledger hadn’t been feeling well. “We all caught colds because we were shooting outside on horrible, damp nights. But Heath’s went on and I don’t think he dealt with it immediately with the antibiotics.…I think what he did have was the walking pneumonia.”

He also said Heath repeatedly complained about not being able to sleep and was taking pills just to get enough rest for the next day’s filming.

There are rumors that Johnny Depp will be asked to step into Heath’s role, but none of these have been confirmed.
