    Gwen Stefani And Gavin Rossdale Split After Nearly 13 Years Of Marriag... - Huffington Post 3 hours ago

        Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are calling it quits after nearly 13 years of marriage. "While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment," the couple told Access Hollywood in a statement.  "To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time."According to the divorce filings obtained by TMZ, Stefani cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the couple's split and both musicians asked for joint custody of their sons Kingston, Zuma and Apollo.The couple first met when their bands No Doubt and Bush went on tour together in 1995 and the two began dating shortly after. They tied the knot on Sept. 14, 2002, in London and followed it up with yet another wedding in Los Angeles two weeks later.The relationship was not without its bumps, as Rossdale would soon learn he was father to then-14-year-old model Daisy Lowe, whose mother is former Powder singer Pearl Lowe. Stefani was rumored to be "devastated" by the news, but couple stayed strong and welcomed their first son in 2006. The couple has been plagued by divorce rumors for years and Stefani is the first one to admit their marriage hasn't been easy.

    'Who Killed Captain Alex?': The Best Worst Film of 2010, Uganda-Style - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        "You think I'll sit back and do nothing as you try to eat me like a juicy grasshopper?" shouts Richard, the thuggish head of the Ugandan crime syndicate, the Tiger Mafia. This unraveling gent has been raving ever since his brother was captured that afternoon by Captain Alex and his commandos. That Richard discovers his wife was spared provides no solace to him. In fact, just the opposite. Richard yells at her, "I don't need you. I have dozens of wives. I only have one brother." Then he bellows to his second-in-command, "Instead of my brother, you saved this bitch." He then shoots his spouse. (This isn't as sexist as it sounds since Richard tends to shoot everyone whether friend or foe.)State-of-the-art photos from Who Killed Captain Alex?Sadly, this drug-dealing villain is not the only one on the set who's psychotically unsettled. There's the hired gun who notes, "I'm a mercenary from Russia. I came here to kill. If you don't give me people to kill, I quit." Since the film's budget [around $200] didn't allow for the importing of a Muscovite actor or at least someone who even looks like they've even heard of Vladimir Putin, a short Ugandan plays him.Exuberantly directed, shot, and edited by Isaac Nabwana in the small, electricity-disabled town of Wakaliga, Who Killed Captain Alex? became an instant cult success in the streets of Uganda back in 2005, even though it was never shown in theatres. Instead, besides street sellers hawking the DVD, the action spoof were screened on TV sets in certain clubs/shacks while a VJ (video joker) added his own commentary to the film. The VJ might note when there's a rare moment the cast isn't being shot at or buildings not being blown up: "Action is coming, I promise you!" Or when a young woman is singing on the stage at a downscale restaurant, he'll bellow over both the music and the dialogue: "Sing Dolly Parton! We love Dolly Parton."Uganda's answer to Michael Bay's special effects.The current cut of the film -- an offering at the always outrageous Fantasia International Film Festival (July 14 to August 5) in Montreal -- includes the VJ dialogue, which is seldom less than a hoot. (For a complete history of the film and its sociological underpinnings, check out Sam McPheeters's superb article on Vox.com.) Clearly, what Plan 9 from Outer Space is to sci-fiers, Captain Alex is to Rambo-esque action aficionados. The film opens with the bombing of New York City for some odd reason. Then with the vigor and expertise of suburban kids playing Cowboys and Indians in the backyards of the 1950s, the cast here runs to and fro, yelling and killing and dying while deliciously cheesy special effects are edited in over their dinner-theater theatrics. The cast, crew, and friends party in Wakaliga.Oscar Wilde once insisted, "Bad art is a great deal worse than no art at all." Nabwana proves him wrong. This offering has already been downloaded from YouTube over 258,994 gleeful times the last I checked. By the way, Captain Alex does get killed. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Get ready for Lord Dominator, Wander Over Yonder's new extreme bad guy... - Huffington Post 5 hours ago

        It was Rudyard Kipling who said it best (in rhyming couplets, no less): "The female of the species is more deadly than the male."And if you want animated proof of this proposition, then I suggest that you tune in to Wander Over Yonder tonight. Which is when Lord Dominator -- a brand-new female fiend -- makes her debut on Disney XD at 9 p.m. ET / PT as this Annie Award-winning series kicks off its second season."And why is Wander adding a new villain to its canvas?," you ask. According to series creator / executive producer Craig McCracken, it was basically because Lord Hater (i.e., Wander Over Yonder's original antagonist) wasn't seen as a real threat."As Season 1 unfolded and Hater revealed himself to be more of a misdirected, lovable goof and not really a REAL bad guy, we knew that we had to introduce a serious and legit villain to shake things up and throw our whole goofy show back on its heels," McCracken explained during a recent interview. "After a whole season of having Wander handily defeat / befriend Lord Hater at every turn, it became hard to take him seriously as a credible threat.""So we made that literal: After wasting an entire year of his life chasing Wander around, the entire galaxy would now think that Lord Hater was a joke. Especially if a bigger, badder bad guy suddenly swooped in and was, you know, actually a bad guy," Craig continued. "Introducing this element is Season Two would also help reinforce one of the main threads of our show: Wander proving that Lord Hater actually has some good in him. And one of the clearest ways of doing that is by putting him next to a more evil, nastier threat."Mind you, in this case, the badder bad guy -- when all of their armor gets stripped away -- is revealed to be a bad gal. So was this done because McCracken -- like Kipling -- was looking to make a comment about " ... the female of the species" ? Craig says no. That this new character was added to Wander Over Yonder's cast strictly for story-driven reasons."Part of the appeal of making Dominator a -- let's say 'enthusiastic' female character -- was the chance to create a real, unapologetically wicked villainess while still having this character be lively, vital, energetic, and fun," McCracken enthused. "Lord Dominator's gender is not what defines her. If male characters can be all things then it follows that female characters can be all things as well." "Lord Dominator's not the wicked stepmother or the old crone. She's not the secondary villain or the 'girl villain' or the main villian's girlfriend. She's THE BAD GUY," Craig continued. "And if you know anything about Lord Hater, you know that -- deep down -- all of his posturing and bluster comes from Lord Hater's desperate desire for people to like him. And he's such a narrow-minded lunkhead that we knew introducing a better villain who happened to be a girl would really throw Lord Hater for a loop on a couple of levels."And given that -- according to McCracken -- Lord Dominator had to be " ... tougher than Sylvia, more cunning than Commander Peepers, more evil than Lord Hater, and is as excited about doing evil as Wander is about doing good" ... Well, not just any voice actor could bring this new Wander Over Yonder character to life. Craig knew that he needed someone who was actually up to this voice-acting challenge. Which is why he reached out to Saturday Night Live alum Noel Wells. Who signed on as soon as she read the teleplay for "The Greater Hater" (i.e., the episode of Wander Over Yonder that actually introduces the Lord Dominator character)."Basically, Wander Over Yonder is one of the best written shows on television. Just my audition sides alone were better than 99 percent of the on-camera auditions I go on. The scripts are fantastic, and Lord Dominator is a fully developed, 3-dimensional female character, which are like Yetis in movies in television. Everyone WANTS to see them but no one ever does," Wells stated. "So I feel super honored that I got to do it. Plus, this is my first recurring animated character on television, and who doesn't want to do that?!"Just to be clear here: When it comes to voicing Lord Dominator, Noel actually shares this role with Fred Tatasciore. Whenever Wander's new villainess is locked away inside of her armor, it's Fred who'll be reading Lord's lines. But as soon as Dominator unmasks, it's Wells who then does all the talking."The way we handle Lord Dominator's voice is that we'll have Noel come in first and get the performance that we want," Craig explained. "Then Fred will come in and dub over her lines to match the nuances of her reads.""Noel's delivery really is key to this character. The director and I wanted to match her cadence as much as possible; especially when Lord Dominator is monologuing to herself," Fred said. "Lord Dominator turns into something else when she 'suits up.' Her imperious speech patterns come out more aggressively as she addresses the world, playing the part of a cruel overlord. That's when -- as I'm voicing this character -- I'll change the cadence. But it always goes back to Noel. It's really fun matching her word for word when I'm doing Lord Dominator's voice."You wanna get a sense of how Wells & Tatasciore combine to create the voice of what McCracken calls " ... MOST EXTREME version of a villain we could think of" ? Check out this Wander Over Yonder Season 2 sizzle reel. Which Disney Television Animation screened for Comic-Con attendees last month in San Diego.And just so you know: "The Greater Hater" -- which debuts tonight on Disney XD at 9 p.m. ET / PT -- is the first installment of a four-part story arc, which includes a musical Wander Over Yonder episode written by composer Andy Bean.So if you want to see how Wander (i.e., the biggest optimist in the universe) and Lord Hater (i.e., a dork who's pretending to be way cooler than he actually is) deal with a more evil, nastier bad guy who just happens to be a gal, be sure and catch the premiere of Season 2 of this acclaimed animated series. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Accused Taliban leader said he was doing 'God's work': testimony - Yahoo Sports NEW!

        By Gary Robertson RICHMOND, Va. (Reuters) - A former American soldier testifying in the trial of Irek Hamidullin on Monday said the accused Russian Taliban leader was compliant when captured, and said he was doing "God's work." Hamidullin, a former Soviet tank commander who converted to Islam and was allegedly fighting for the Taliban, is the first Afghan War military combatant to be tried in U.S. federal court. Believed to be in his 50s, Hamidullin was charged last year with 15 criminal counts ranging from supporting terrorists to firearms offenses stemming from an assault on an Afgan Border Police base in November of 2009 "He raised his hands and said [in English], 'Don't kill me, I'm a Russian citizen'" said Todd Marcum, who shot and wounded Hamidullin as he and other soldiers pursued insurgents who had attacked Camp Leyza in Khost Province.
