"I obviously don't do it for the money, I do it so I can play my guitar all day long," said "Rick," the man in this image by Skylar Aud, taken Sunday at Sunset Boulevard and North Orange Drive in Hollywood.

OutKast will headline the 2014 BET Experience, the three-day music festival scheduled for June in downtown Los Angeles. Black Entertainment Television is expected to make an official announcement Monday that the Atlanta duo will topline the festival's rap-heavy showcase, which includes Rick Ross, ASAP Rocky and DJ Khaled. When BET announced in March the first set of performers for the festival, which will be in its second year, the network teased a “very special hip-hop reunion you won't want to miss.” RELATED: The inside story on OutKast That reunion is OutKast, which recently ended a seven-year hiatus with a headlining slot at the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival this month.

The ready-made edginess of hit men, hookers and gangsters is a foundation that a story can either build on or coast on. Writer-director Brian Peterson's "The Misadventures of Rick the Strangler" at the Electric Lodge takes the lazy route with formulaic characters aimed at those who like their comedy crude and incoherent. Mob executioner Rick's misadventures ensue from his predilection for feeding his victims' severed digits to his dog. This unique take on finger food lands Rick (Jonathan Brooks)

SAN DIEGO -- Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt isn't certain the Dodgers' trip to Australia is to blame for Clayton Kershaw's injury, but he wouldn't rule it out. In Honeycutt's view, the trip itself wasn't the problem. Rather, it was how the Dodgers' training camp was shortened. “I would love for a starter to have a minimum of five starts in spring-training games,” Honeycutt said. Kershaw made four starts in exhibition games. Kershaw first felt discomfort in his back muscle in his opening-day start in Australia.

Since the end of its first season, the narrative direction of "The Walking Dead" has been a, um, bone of contention. Based on the graphic novels by Robert Kirkman (who serves as executive producer), "The Walking Dead" leveraged a built-in audience to become AMC's first real big ratings hit. Issues of plot and pacing dog any adaptation, but creative differences have separated the show from its show runner twice already - Scott Gimple recently took over Season 4, which premieres Sunday night.

We open moments after Rick hacked off Hershel's leg with a hand axe to theoretically save him from a zombie bite, while a group of five confused and slightly horrified prisoners looked on. After the crew rushes Hershel back to the secure cell block, the prisoners follow along like confused puppies until Daryl levels his crossbow at them, announces that they have all been pardoned by the state of Georgia, and invites the newly free men to explore the...

Every time Rick and Ron Rabune try to tell people back home about the football program they are involved in, they run into problems. USC? People can think only of the Trojans. Carolina? North Carolina comes more often to mind. This season, there's a short cut. They can tell them it's South Carolina--alternately known as USC and Carolina--and to tune in the Gator Bowl today, when the ninth-ranked Gamecocks will play seventh-ranked Louisiana State at Jacksonville, Fla.

For years we have witnessed the Westsidefication of Ventura Boulevard. Exhibits A through Z are the restaurants. Toscana, Cha Cha Cha, Versailles and Amazon are but a few that were cloned from originals south of the Santa Monica Mountains. Still, it was surprising to stumble upon a new joint that calls itself The Original Schwab's Grill. Now this seemed a cheeky claim.

Non-American actors are forever teasing their American counterparts about the latter's need to find a motivation for a character. There was the time, for instance, when Dustin Hoffman went through painful preparation for a key scene in "The Marathon Man," and co-star Laurence Olivier asked him, "Why don't you just act?"

"Rick is like a little boy, constantly demanding my time and attention," sighs Brenda, 35, a third-grade teacher and mother of a 6-month-old. "He berates me for being distant and insincere. To be honest, I don't know what's gone wrong with a marriage that seemed so perfect." When they first met, Brenda was enchanted by Rick's enthusiasm and eagerness to talk about how he felt or to discuss things that intrigued him.

"They're screwing with the wrong people" isn't quite "Go ahead, make my day," but it was the closing line of "The Walking Dead's" fourth season and the line that officially turned Rick from tortured, reluctant leader into an '80s-style tough guy. Having him rip a man's throat out with his teeth did a lot to push him in that direction as well. Arnold Schwarzenegger may be flopping at the box office this weekend, but Rick on "The Walking Dead" is doing just fine with all the former Governator's old action flick moves.

The name is familiar, but the title is not. The Angels hired Rick Eckstein, the older brother of former World Series-winning Angels shortstop David Eckstein, as their major league player information coach in November, which begs the question: What the heck - or would that be what the Eck? - is a player information coach? In short, it's a position that combines scouting and on-field coaching duties. "It's a hybrid role," General Manager Jerry Dipoto said, "one that will be very valuable to our club.

AUSTIN, Texas - Rick Ross had come to South by Southwest, as indeed he goes most places, to boast. "I just celebrated my fifth No. 1 album," the Miami rapper said Saturday night at the Fader Fort. Last week, Ross's so-so "Mastermind" debuted atop the Billboard 200, beating out competition that included Pharrell Williams' heavily promoted "G I R L" and the Oscar-winning "Frozen" soundtrack. The record, he wrote on Twitter before the show, "contains only the highest grade of execution.

Rick Perry is coming back to town. The Texas governor will be in Los Angeles next week to try to persuade local corporations to relocate to the Lone Star State. This is his third swing through the Southland since last year, and Texas this time around comes armed with a $300,000 advertising blitz. He returns with a big victory under his belt: Occidental Petroleum Corp. The Los Angeles oil giant, whose roots in the region go back nearly a century, announced last month it is relocating to Houston.

Just hours before hoisting his Oscar for best picture for "Argo" in February 2013, actor-director Ben Affleck cheered on his daughter Violet as she won the Pacific Palisades spelling bee. Geena Davis lunches at Matthew's Garden Cafe, and Dustin Hoffman shops at the local Gelson's on Sunset Boulevard. The Palisades is that kind of place - where celebrities mingle with regular people, and everybody is well shod. It's peculiar, then, that Pacific Palisades' shopping village has the beaten-down aura of a Midwestern Main Street where the mom-and-pop shops have been driven out by Wal-Mart, only there's no Wal-Mart.

There are a lot of lies involved in the zombie apocalypse. The biggest lie, and the most common one, is also the most necessary: "It's going to be all right. " It's the lie of Woodbury, the lie of the phone call. And the reason it's so seductive is that it's all anyone has wanted to believe since the nightmare started, and they're willing to accept just about anything - madness, murder - to make it true. Conversely, it's the same lie that Michonne has never really let herself believe, which is why she's running from a Woodbury death squad as the episode opens.

Give Rick Ross credit for playing to his strengths. Though the Miami rapper's new album "Mastermind" is largely a disappointment -- a stale rehash of ideas he's served up far more convincingly elsewhere -- Ross wisely focused on the record's best song for his performance Thursday night on "The Arsenio Hall Show. " And he didn't do " Sanctified " by himself, either, but brought out two of his A-list pals to the delight of Hall's audience: Kanye West and Big Sean, both of whom appear on the track on "Mastermind.

The manic will soon return to Mondays. "Rick and Morty," Adult Swim's wacky animated half-hour from "Community" czar Dan Harmon and actor/writer Justin Roiland, returns with new episodes Monday at 10:30 p.m. PDT. The deranged comedy, currently in its first season, centers on mad scientist/drunken sociopath Rick and his woeful grandson Morty and their loony adventures -- a sort of unhinged spin on the Doc Brown-Marty McFly relationship in...
