"Grease" stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta channeled Sandy and Danny with their dance moves and red carpet outfits.
Brendan Tighe left Scientology six years ago but has been holding on to some bizarre, star-studded stories.
John Travolta appeared in a stage version but played a very different role, and Rydell High was based on a real school. Jim Jacobs, one of the show’s creators, has the low-down.
For “Gotti,” which opens today, the “Pulp Fiction” star steps into the Dapper Don’s shoes and other assorted clothing. Yahoo Entertainment spoke with Travolta about remaking himself in Gotti's image, and one of his favorite memories from “Grease.”
Released on June 16, 1978, Grease helped establish John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John as bona fide superstars and went on to become the highest-grossing movie musical of all time (a title the film held until last year, when it was passed by Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast). Adapted from the hit Broadway musical of the same name, written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, the Grease we know and love almost didn’t happen in the first place. Once the film rights became available, Hollywood came calling.

Are we the only ones who feel as if the 2016 presidential campaign has been going on for years? While we are literally counting down the days until it’s all over, we must confess that we have been a tad obsessed with all the drama surrounding Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump‘s battle for the presidency. While we’re sure a film is probably already in the works, here is how we would cast Election 2016: Judgment Day….

In the upcoming thriller In a Valley of Violence, Hawke plays the drifter Paul, who turns up in the near-abandoned town of Denton with his dog, Abbie (critically acclaimed dog actor Jumpy).

Vance. After too many seasons of neglect, another FX show, The Americans, finally got some of the attention it deserved as the show was nominated not only in the drama category, but also co-stars and real-life couple Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell were nominated as well.
The father of Scientology leader David Miscavige has written a book about his son provocatively titled Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me – and David Miscavige has threatened to sue over the book, which its U.K. publisher says details the younger Miscavige’s “brutal approach to running the organization.” In the first excerpts from an interview Ron Miscavige did with ABC, he talks about his estranged son’s childhood and says he “wasn’t always that way.”
The folks at FX have asked critics not to review tonight’s final episode of American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson until after it airs, but in a stunning rebuke to spoiler culture, I’ll take a daring stand and reveal: In “The Verdict,” the show’s 10th hour airing Tuesday night, Simpson is found not guilty.
