Xavier Fans Hope So]]> Sat, 25 Mar 2017 12:41:44 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-657091926.png

Bill Murray is having quite the year. It's always a good time to be the iconic 66-year-old 'Ghostbusters' actor, but it turns out that this is a pretty good time to be a fan of his favorite sports teams, too.

The Chicago-area native was front and center for his beloved Cubs’ first World Series victory in 108 years – singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game;" appearing on 'Saturday Night Live' with team members; calling for Mayor Emanuel to cancel school; and even making one fan’s dream come true

He crashed postgame interviews, victory celebrations and even a White House press briefing, all for the love of his Cubbies. Now Murray has his sights set on March Madness, and his support of bracket-busting Xavier University has led some to speculate that perhaps there’s a little something more to his diehard fandom.

The Musketeers came into the NCAA tournament as the 11 seed in the West Region, but those long odds didn’t stop them from winning three major upsets in a row. After taking out six-seed Maryland and three-seed Florida State in the first two rounds, Xavier toppled two-seed Arizona on Friday to head to the Elite Eight for the first time since 2008.

In the stands to see it happen was, of course, Bill Murray, whose son is an assistant coach of the Xavier men's basketball team. While the proud father's reaction to Xavier's shocking exit from the 2016 NCAA tournament quickly went viral, this year has so far been a very different story.

A notoriously raucous sports fan, Murray's hair-tousling joy could put a smile on just about anyone's face – and it did not go unnoticed.

"Entourage" actor Jerry Ferrara even tweeted that "tons of credit" goes to Murray, while sidelined Bulls star Dwyane Wade himself was in awe of Murray’s "power."

That power even led some fans to change their allegiance—or hope that Murray could lend them a helping hand.

Whether there’s some sort of magic to Murray's support remains to be seen, as Xavier is set to face their toughest test yet. The Musketeers take on one-seed Gonzaga Saturday evening, with both teams looking to secure a trip to their first-ever Final Four.

<![CDATA[Taylor Kinney Opens Up About Break-Up With Lady Gaga]]> Fri, 24 Mar 2017 09:39:41 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/LadyGaga-AP_207300433019.jpg

“Chicago Fire” star Taylor Kinney has stayed quiet about his break-up with ex-fiancee Lady Gaga, but in a recent interview he revealed his character’s current love life may be more exciting than his real one. 

Kinney opened up about life after his ended engagement with Gaga, who he had dated for five years. 

He told Entertainment Online at NBC’s Summer Press day that his dating life is now lived “through Chicago Fire.” 

“I live vicariously through my character,” he said.

Kinney proposed to Gaga in February 2015 and the engagement ended in July 2016. 

Details surrounding the breakup are still unclear, but the news followed weeks of rumors circulating on social media when the singer appeared in photos without her engagement ring.

Kinney told ET once he’s ready to put himself back out into the dating world, he doesn’t have a “type” in mind.

“I think of compatibility as the intangibles, and someone that you meet and connect with, and someone you can laugh with, and maybe share a sense of humor, then things go from there,” he said. 

The actor even revealed a sneak peek into the upcoming episode of “Chicago Fire,” which he said takes place entirely at Firehouse 51 and involves a predicament between the firehouse and gang members.

“They take us hostage for the most part,” he said.

<![CDATA[Kate Winslet Speaks Out on Bullying Experience]]> Fri, 24 Mar 2017 08:08:54 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-504595398winslet.jpg

Kate Winslet on Wednesday spoke out about bullying during the United Kingdom’s WE Day even in London, Vanity Fair reported.

Winslet shared her experiences being bullied with the crowd at the event to celebrate youth making a difference in their local and global communities, according to the organization's website.

"They called me blubber. Teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard. Laughed at me," Winslet said.

Winslet shared that she was told that she "might be lucky" in her acting if she was "happy to settle for fat girl parts." According to the Oscar winner, casting agents even told her that she wasn’t what they were looking for.

"I learned to embrace my flaws, to make no apology for who I am," Winslet told the fired-up crowd. "And I decided that I simple wouldn’t listen when they said that my body didn’t fit. This is who I am."

Winslet has always been an outspoken advocate for positive body image. In 2003, she criticized GQ for reducing the size of her legs on her cover photo for the magazine.

<![CDATA[See It: 5-Minute 'Ghost' Clip Before Film Hits Theater]]> Thu, 23 Mar 2017 12:56:28 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/ghostinshellclip.jpg

Curious about Scarlett Johansson in the upcoming sci-fi thriller "Ghost in the Shell"? Well, now you don't have to wait. Paramount revealed a nearly 5-minute long sequence from the controversial film Wednesday.

"Ghost in the Shell" has come under fire for placing Johansson in the leading role. The film, a live-action version of Japanese anime, had been used as an example of white-washing across social media. 

In the March issue of Marie Claire, Johansson addressed the controversy directly.

"I certainly would never presume to play another race of a person. Diversity is important in Hollywood, and I would never want to feel like I was playing a character that was offensive," she told the magazine.  "Also, having a franchise with a female protagonist driving it is such a rare opportunity. Certainly, I feel the enormous pressure of that—the weight of such a big property on my shoulders."

Students will go to great lengths to snag the internship of their dreams, and that’s exactly what one college student did when he made a rap video to capture Jimmy Fallon’s attention, Today.com reported.

Jake Sirianni, a college student at Washington State, superimposed himself over a 2014 clip of Daniel Radcliffe on "The Tonight Show." He rewrote the words of the rap to explain why he’s a good fit for an internship with "The Tonight Show."

And his hard work paid off. On his show Wednesday night, Fallon announced that his answer was yes, Sirianni is hired.
