'The Voice': Gwen Stefani Says Show 'Inspired' Her Music Career
Coaching on NBC's The Voice has reinvigorated Gwen Stefani's career. The "Hollaback Girl" singer told Starpulse during a recent press junket how her first year coaching on the show made her feel different about her own music, and why she decided to come back for this season.

"The experience is what inspired me," she said. "I think I was just so shocked, because I'd just had a baby and they just asked me to do the show and it was just a shock. Never in my life would I ever do something like this. It just didn't seem like my thing...It was a crazy move and I just think that sometimes, things...

Meet 'Heroes Reborn' Newcomer Toru Uchikado
NBC's Heroes Reborn is adding a lot of new faces to the Heroes universe, including Toru Uchikado. Toru plays the character Ren, who becomes connected to Miko Otomo as she begins her heroic story as Katana Girl. Starpulse caught up with him recently to talk about the show - and it being his first major acting role!

"It’s just great that I finally don’t have to tell my friends 'Don’t blink or you will miss me,'" the actor told us. "I moved to LA in 2011 and since then, I’ve worked everywhere. When I was taking acting classes and going to numerous auditions, I served tables, worked as a barte...

Charlene Amoia Previews The Return Of 'Sleepy Hollow'
FOX's Sleepy Hollow returns for a new season this week, and the season premiere features a face that will be familiar to TV fans. Actress Charlene Amoia endeared herself to audiences as the waitress Wendy on CBS's How I Met Your Mother, but now she's taking a completely different turn.

Starpulse spoke to Charlene to discuss diving into Sleepy Hollow and what it was like for her to be the titular character in the first new episode, "I Witness." It goes without saying that she's not just visiting town.

"Season two has Ichabod [Tom Mison] and Abbie [Nicole Beharie] dealing with very differen...

Way back in 2006, After Dark Films got an idea to feed fan fear frenzy with their now legendary event HorrorFest aka '8 Films to Die For.' The fest took smaller genre outings and gave the eager public a chance to check them out at Halloween time. Fast forward to 2015 and After Dark is once again back in the audience angst business with a crop of new hallowed hopefuls. But what would the fest be without the famed former Miss HorrorFest now titled 'A Scre...

Matt Forbes Discusses His Start In Music And Debut Album, 'Could
Matt Forbes is redefining the genre of vintage pop. The 27-year-old Canadian born and raised, Los Angeles based crooner has had the opportunity to headline some of the city’s top jazz venues with his Big Little Band, also known as “The Horn-y Sextet,” and has served as a regular front man with the Influence Jazz Orchestra.

Interview: 'Some Kind Of Hate' Helmer Adam Egypt Mortimer Talks
Every once in a while you come across a film that defies categorization, that breaks the rules and dares to be different. Such is the case with the insane inspired new film titled "Some Kind of Hate" (in theaters, VOD and iTunes on Sept. 18 from RLJ Entertainment) which manages to bravely tackle subjects like bullying, teen angst and even undead summoning – all under the same cinematic roof. (Think "Lost Angels" with a body count!) Beyond description and reason (but certainly savory to watch!) the film is the work of Director and Co-Writer Adam Egypt Mortimer and it’s impressive to say t...
