Although this often involves hearing the same canned answers time and time again, it sometimes means you get to see some of your favorite actors pop up in unexpected places. In this case, 'Neig
Last week's 'SNL' installment significantly raised the bar for the 2014 season with the hosting debut of 'Pitch Perfect' player Anna Kendrick, but can 'Neighbors' star Seth Rogen keep the same standard of quality with his third hosting turn, alongside musical guest Ed Sheeran?

If Zac Efron can take a shot to the jaw with dignity (too soon?), he can certainly handle anything Seth Rogen has to throw at him. The two star in the upcoming comedy 'Neighbors,' the trailer for which features the two in a heated showdown as a family man and a douchey frat guy trying to boot the other off their residential block.
At the beginning of last summer, my neighbor Helen had to move because of health reasons. She’s now in Alabama with her daughter and son-in-law and doing well. Her house next door was for sale for about a year and now a nice couple and their 3 daughters moved in...
