INDUSTRY NEWS


RATINGS FOR 'THE VIEW' ARE STILL DOWN: The reshuffling of co-hosts on The View this season has not really succeeded in bringing viewers back. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ratings for the 18th season have fallen below last year's in the episodes following premiere week. The numbers are not bad but they have continued to fall 30% from where they were five years ago. There are also rumors that producers are having issues with Rosie O'Donnell's treatment of the other women and that they are already allegedly looking to replace Rosie Perez when her contract is up.

'HOMELAND' ACTRESS JOINS 'GOTHAM': Homeland alum Morena Baccarin has landed a new gig on Fox's freshman series Gotham. She will be playing Dr. Leslie Thompkins -- a former friend of Bruce Wayne's parents who takes a job at Arkham Asylum. The role will be recurring during the first season but is expected to be full-time in season two. In addition to Homeland, Morena has had roles on Joss Whedon's Firefly, Stargate SG-1, and V.

FOX ORDERS MORE 'RED BAND SOCIETY': Fox has ordered four additional scripts for Red Band Society. The freshman drama has received favorable reviews but lackluster ratings since its debut. Viewership has been increasing slightly from week to week and tends to get a large boost when DVR ratings are factored in.

STEVE COOGAN IS REPLACING PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN IN 'HAPPYISH': British comedian Steve Coogan will step in for the late Philip Seymour Hoffman as the star of Showtime's Happyish.

NEIL PATRICK HARRIS WAS NOT FIRST CHOICE FOR OSCARS


Neil Patrick Harris may seem like the go-to guy to host award shows these days but he was reportedly not the first choice for the 2015 Oscars. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there were three other people offered the job before him.

  • Neil has previously hosted the Tony Awards four times and the Primetime Emmy Awards twice.

RYAN PHILLIPPE ADMITS MOST OF HIS MOVIES ARE BAD


Ryan Phillippe admits that his career hasn't included many high quality films. The 40-year-old reflected back on his 20-year career in a recent interview with the L.A. Times and his questionable future in the industry.

Ryan explained, "I've made 30-plus films over 20 years. And in my opinion, five of them are good. So you slave away and you work hard and you want to make something great, and a lot of times you end up disappointed. There are a lot of elements that are beyond your control when you're an actor for hire." He went on to use his 2011 movie Setup as an example saying, "I did this terrible movie with 50 Cent. It was just a situation I didn't want to be in. I was sold a bill of goods and it turned out to be something different, which is often the case in this business." Ryan added, "Acting alone doesn't sustain me the same way it used to. Which I think is completely okay if you've done something for 20 years. Trying something else becomes really appealing."

AMY POEHLER ADDRESSES HER BODY ISSUES


Amy Poehler won't let the superficiality of Hollywood get the better of her. She recently opened up to People about the pressure to look a certain way when you're in the entertainment industry.

Amy said, "In a shallow business, I just had to come to terms with being really okay with not being...symmetrical. You can either spend your life trying to be perfect, and you can tweak and nip and tuck, and then be afraid to move your face. There's a line between feeling healthy, strong and sexy and feeling good about yourself, and being worried about how you measure up." The Emmy-winner added, "Some days I wake up and I'm just like, 'All right, I'm feelin' really good,' and some days I loathe myself. Just like everyone else. It's so funny because it doesn't matter what you do, whether you have your picture in a magazine or you don't, there are days where you're just feeling it and other days where you look at yourself and say, 'Oh my god, who is that old woman in the store window? Oh my god, it's me!"

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY REVEALS WHAT PUSHED HIM TO GET MARRIED


Matthew McConaughey admits that he was in no rush to make things official with wife Camila Alves before she put the pressure on him to make things official.

He tells GQ magazine, "I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do. I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn't want it to be a destination; the fun is that we're on the adventure together. And look, some of it had to do with her putting it on me. It took her going, 'C'mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We'll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either s**t or get off the pot."

  • Matthew goes on to reveal that, despite his views on marriage, fatherhood was always something he knew he wanted. He goes on to say, "Never is a man more of a man than when he is the father of a newborn. Whatever decisions you make in the first six months of becoming a father, double down on them. I mean, you're meeting the Courier. You're meeting the Shepherd, the Future Prince. You immediately have something you don't have to think about. You know what's important. Bam! And the clarity of that is like, 'Whew.' I definitely got more selfish. And at the same time, I think I got more compassionate, which don't always go together, you know?"

BILLY BOB THORNTON EXPLAINS ANGELINA JOLIE'S BLOOD NECKLACE


Billy Bob Thornton is finally offering up an explanation for Angelina Jolie wearing a vial of his blood around her neck while they were dating. He made the revelation while speaking to the students at Loyola Marymount University's School of Film & Television last week.

The 59--year-old told the students, "A vial of blood is very simple. Angie came home one day with a kit she bought. You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your grannie in it or something like that and wear it around your neck? That's what it was. She bought two of those. We were apart a lot because she's off making Tomb Raider and I'm making Monster's Ball. We were on opposite ends -- we see each other for two weeks and whatever. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter's baby hair in one. Same thing. From that we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks...and we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon." Billy Bob added, "I think it's your duty to kind of tell people the truth about this stuff and the truth is not encouraged anymore."

  • He and Angelina got married in 2000 but broke up in June of 2002.
