Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, is throwing her hat into the talk show ring.
The activist will host her very own talk show, titled Raising McCain, on the new cable network Pivot when it launches in August.
The show will follow McCain on the road, and film her interactions with guests. “I keep telling people it’s like ‘Meet the Press’ meets ‘Jackass,’” McCain revealed at Pivot’s upfront on Wednesday.
MCain, who calls the show an “opportunity of a lifetime,” says the show will be “uncensored.”
The Pivot channel will target 18 to 34 year olds, and combine entertainment with social action, according to Pivot president Evan Shapiro.
“We’re told … that young people can’t have news because we’re just tweeting all the time, and that’s just bullshit,” McCain said at the presentation.
The first photo of British actor Tom Brady as the villain “Bane” was released on the net yesterday. Bane will be the main villain in the upcoming Batman movie, Batman 3: The Dark Knight Rises.
But who is “Bane?”
Bane is the test subject for a drug named Venom, which grants him superhuman strength and durability. The character first made an appearance in the 1997 film Batman & Robin starring George Clooney.
The Dark Knight Rises began filming a couple of weeks ago. Anne Hathaway will take on the role as Selina Kyle AKA Catwoman and actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt as officer John Blake.
Christian Bale reprises the role of Batman. Michael Caine returns as Alfred the Butler, Gary Oldman as Commissioner Gordon and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox.
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.
With the Oscars just weeks away, it’s no surprise that Vanity Fair has put together a special issue for the occasion. The 2011 cover features an array of stars dressed in their best red carpet attire.
From L-R: Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Jennifer Lawrence, Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Robert Duvall (LOL), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund, and Noomi Rapace.
