Quentin Tarantino's engagement party becomes "Pulp Fiction" reunion

(NEW YORK) -- Quentin Tarantino's celebration of his recent engagement to Israeli singer Daniella Pick became something of a Pulp Fiction reunion, the New York Post reports. The event, which took place at the New York City eatery Socialista, drew veterans of the influential Oscar-winning epic, including Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, and Harvey Keitel, as well as Tarantino's longtime producers -- and, incidentally, the guys who threw the party -- Harvey and Bob Weinstein. Tarantino, 54, met 33-year-old Pick in 2009, while Quentin was promoting Inglorious Basterds in Israel, where Pick and her sister, Sharona, were pop stars. The pair reconnected in 2016, the New York…

Star Freddie Highmore tells ABC Radio the role is a change from his last one, where he played Norman Bates on the show Bates Motel, a prequel to the legendary horror film Psycho.

Jeff Bridges says Elton John "comes to the party all guns blazing" in "Kingsman: The Golden Circle"

(NEW YORK) -- Director Matthew Vaughn wanted to put Elton John in his movie 2014 Kingsman: The Secret Service but couldn't find a way to work him into the plot.  But Vaughn did get Elton into the new sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle -- and one of Elton's Oscar-winning co-stars gives his performance a big thumbs up. In Golden Circle, which had a $39 million first place debut in U.S. theaters, Jeff Bridges plays Champagne, a member of the U.S. spy agency Statesman, the counterpart to the U.K.'s Kingsman spy agency.  Elton plays himself, and steals the scenes he's in.…

Who will be the first to go home tonight on "Dancing with the Stars?"

(LOS ANGELES) -- Tonight will see the first elimination of the season on Dancing with the Stars.  That of course begs the question: who will be the first to go home? Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran seems the likely candidate, based on her low first-week scores – and she knows her millions can’t help her in the ballroom.  “Money can never buy anything worthwhile, but accomplishment makes you feel like a million bucks, and that's what I was after,” she tells ABC Radio. Frankie Muniz scored a bit better, but is also at risk tonight.  He hopes he can stick around, because he’s discovered a…

Jerry Seinfeld says fans shouldn't expect a "Seinfeld" reunion

(NEW YORK) -- Jerry Seinfeld has said it before, and he'll say it again: don't expect a Seinfeld reunion. Despite a Super Bowl ad from a few years back -- and a reunion subplot on Curb Your Enthusiasm -- Jerry, Elaine, George and the gang will probably never grace the TV screen together again. Entertainment Tonight recently asked the 63-year-old whether he would capitalize on the current trend of reboots and reunions like Roseanne and Will & Grace. His response: "Why?" The legendary comedian has always been outspoken about leaving the show, which ended its run in 1998, alone. "Maybe…
