    Earlier today, Marvel announced some big news: Ultron, the villain in the Avengers sequel, will be played by James Spader. James Spader? James Spader. Since the moment that the very last frame of The Avengers flickered out, the fanboys have been s...

    Amos Barshad

    Fox's serial-killer drama The Following — as good an excuse as any for Kevin Bacon to get into that that primo steady TV paycheck action — premiered last week, but our dude Andy Greenwald wasn't feeling it. "The Following is a toddler pla...

    Amos Barshad

    Chief Keef has been in some form of legal trouble ever since we met the young man. At first, it was endearing, myth-building stuff: "Hip-Hop's Next Big Thing Is On House Arrest at His Grandma's," that kind of thing. Quickly, it turned grisly and ugly...

    Amos Barshad

    On Wednesday night, in a victory against the Magic, the Bulls' Joakim Noah tried to feed the people. Up big with seconds left, he chucked up a 3 — just the fifth attempt of his career. If it had rattled in, the Bulls would have cracked 100 poin...

  16. The Boston Celtics and the Joys of Low Expectations

    Amos Barshad
