Seth MacFarlane's comedic western "A Million Ways to Die in the West" has released a bawdy red-band trailer, and true to its name, it demonstrates plenty of ways to meet an untimely end. They include getting crushed by a huge block of ice, being set aflame by a camera flash, getting shot in a duel, overdosing on a shamanic concoction, being gored by a bull and, somehow, falling victim to a splinter. MacFarlane directed, produced, co-wrote (with Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild)

Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon and writer Chris Tartaro are ... "The Chickeneers.

Dressed as chickens. Clucking their way through the whole song. No words, just clucks. Bock , bock and everything. The quartet was costumed as bright yellow fowl, a la Big Bird, and delivered a nearly straight-faced performance of the hit song in celebration of Easter this Sunday.

Art sometimes imitates life. And then again, life often imitates art. Just ask Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave and her husband, Franco Nero. In the new romantic comedy, "Letters to Juliet," the 73-year-old Redgrave plays a widow named Claire who had left the love of her life, Lorenzo (Nero), 50 years earlier when she was a student in Verona, Italy. Before she had left, Claire did what numerous women in love have done over the centuries, write a letter about her love affair to the Shakespearean heroine, Juliet, and tack it on the wall of the courtyard where the fictional character had lived.
