Your favorite toys are back! In this exclusive photo of the Toy Story team, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Jessie the Yodeling Cowgirl reunite in ABC’s computer-animated thriller Toy Story OF TERROR! — and they’re not their usual, smiling selves in this exclusive art.

Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio developing Gorbachev pic with HBO Films

The Cold War has captivated our imaginations and taken over our television sets. But instead of stylish spies in disguise, HBO Films is taking the biopic route.

The Odd Couple: Tom Hanks and Bill O'Reilly pair up for 'Killing Lincoln'

Tom Hanks and Bill O’Reilly don’t always see eye-to-eye on things. Earlier this year, Hanks narrated an Obama re-election campaign video, a job that O’Reilly quickly dismissed as “career suicide.” Then, when an old home video turned up that captured Hanks at a 2004 private school fundraiser where a parent donned blackface as part of an ill-conceived skit, the Oscar-winning actor apologized to the Fox News personality because he name-checked him as a desperate punchline during the awkward videotaped banter.

But both men share a passion for history, with Hanks a star and producer of huge Hollywood films about World War II and the space race, and O’Reilly the author of a best-selling book about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. And sometimes, that’s enough.

Today, the National Geographic Channel — which is also partially owned by News Corp, the parent of Fox News — announced that the two will team up to turn O’Reilly’s book, Killing Lincoln, in to a two-hour television event. READ FULL STORY
