Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton.

The Expendables 3 hits theaters this month, giving moviegoers a third round of A-Team-meets-AARP action and giving a host of '80s and '90s stars a reason to flex their muscles onscreen once again.
The cast list reads like a fanboy's dream: Sylvester Stallone, Antonio Banderas, Jet Li, Wesley Snipes, Dolph Lundgren, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and Arnold Schwarzenegger – and Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke appeared in the previous installments.
But where are the women?

You know how the line goes: If there's something strange in your neighborhood, you probably live near the Kardashians. We're totally kidding! Everyone knows that if there's something strange or something weird "and it don't look good," you're gonna call the Ghostbusters.
Those four jumpsuit-wearing, proton pack-carrying heroes first appeared on movie screens 30 years ago this weekend, serving all of our supernatural elimination needs, reminding us never to cross the streams and, as the late Harold Ramis said, "turning the word 'slime' into a verb."

The six-episode Political Animals has the makings of great summer entertainment. It's as shallow and cheaply constructed as a kiddie pool, but there's plenty of water to splash around in.
In a nervy riff on real-life politics, Sigourney Weaver plays Elaine Barrish Hammond, a greatly admired Secretary of State and former First Lady: She's now divorced from ex-President Bud Hammond (Ciarán Hinds), a southern rogue whose sexual conquests can't satisfy his hunger for a return to power. My guess is you're not supposed to imagine Pat and Richard Nixon.

As the official leading lady of The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence knows she's landed an out-of-this-world role – in more ways than one.
Taking on the part of Katniss Everdeen, a fierce and feisty heroine competing in the ultimate game of life-or-death, Lawrence, 20, has extra special, extraterrestrial inspiration for tapping into the "fighting spirit" of her character.
"Sigourney Weaver's Ripley in Alien is the first [movie] that comes to mind," she tells Entertainment Weekly of an older yet similarly famous heroine.

As if losing a tooth in The Hangover wasn't proof enough of just how uninhibited Ed Helms can act, then go take a look at his latest effort, the big-screen comedy opening Friday, Cedar Rapids.
In it, the costar of The Office, here playing a dorky Midwestern insurance salesman, not only has intimate scenes with Sigourney Weaver and Anne Heche, but also shares a bare-all, towel-dropping embrace with Kurtwood Smith, who played the father of Topher Grace's character on That '70s Show.
"I was completely naked," Helms, 37, told PEOPLE at Thursday's New York Cinema Society screening of Cedar Rapids, sponsored by Altoids. "I feel that those little modesty pouches that they give you for nude scenes are far more humiliating than actually nudity, so why not just go for it?"

At 64 years old, Susan Sarandon couldn't be happier.
"I wouldn't want to be 20 now," the actress tell V magazine, in their special Age Issue, also featuring Jane Fonda and Sigourney Weaver. "I know so much more, and I'm much more comfortable in my skin, saggy as it is."
Sarandon says life's too short to spend it worrying about your body. "When I hear young girls complaining about superficial things ... You're at the peak of your physical beauty right now!" she exclaims. "Just enjoy it and stop worrying about your thighs being too big."
