Courtney Barnett tries explaining Aussie slang, then kills it on her SNL debut
Yahoo News - 9 months
Oh Courtney Barnett, how do we love you. The Australian indie sensation hailing from the city of Melbourne smashed it on her debut on Saturday Night Live's season finale, while also helping Americans understand a bit of local slang. SEE ALSO: New Lonely Island video has it all: sex, VR and Osama Bin Laden If you've ever wondered what a "ute" or a "singlet" is, please allow Ms. Barnett to explain. She got down to basics with SNL cast member Bobby Moynihan in a behind-the-scenes video uploaded to the show's Facebook page. You'll also find out what Crocodile Dundee a.k.a. Paul Hogan has been up to recently (just crying, apparently). After pushing through the myriad of confused looks and hilarious questions Moynihan threw up — "do you get mad when people say 'shrimp on the barbie' and stuff?" — Barnett took to the SNL stage to perform. Honouring a classic Australian TV ad with a "Life. Be in it." t-shirt, Barnett performed her tunes "Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party" and "P ...

Getting Away: Of Islands and Authors
Huffington Post - about 1 year
If you Google "Salt Cay, Bahamas" and select the satellite map view, off the coast of Nassau you'll see an impossibly tiny green and brown spoon-shaped strip of land in a turquoise sea. Zoom closer, and coconut palms and white sand beaches appear. Closer still, and you can see the blue roofs of Dolphin Encounters, which shelter the dolphins and sea lions that live in the lagoon. In the late 1800s Salt Cay [pronounced "key"] was the haunt of privateers and pirates who visited the island not to bury treasure, but to cull salt from the lagoon to preserve their food. Today the island is the home of the 3 dolphins who played the famous aquatic star in the Universal Studios movie "Flipper" with Paul Hogan and Elijah Wood. This incredibly beautiful island also has a unique literary history. John T. McCutcheon, The Chicago Tribune's chief foreign correspondent, Pulitzer Prize winner, and dean of American political cartoonists, purchased the island in 1916 sight unseen for $17,500. Duri ...

Paul Hogan Divorce In The Works After Splitting With Wife Of 23 Years
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Paul Hogan is headed back to bachelorhood after 23 years of marriage to his wife, Linda Hogan, according to multiple sources. The pair met while co-starring in the 1986 action-comedy "Crocodile Dundee," for which Hogan is best known. And despite their 23 years of marriage, Hogan's wife has now filed for divorce, reportedly citing "irreconcilable differences" as her reason for the split. Just earlier this year the couple was photographed at a red carpet gala event looking quite in love, but what goes on behind the scenes of celebrities' lives is often more than a photograph can capture. Linda Hogan plans to revert to her maiden name, Kozlowski, and will also petition for spousal support, as well as joint legal and physical custody of the pair's 15-year-old son, Chance. Keep in mind that Hogan's reported net assets amount to roughly $20 million, amassed over a four decade career both in the U.S. and in his native Australia. If the separation goes smoothly, both he and Kozlowski will ...

Chris Hemsworth Buys Paul Hogan's Malibu House (PHOTOS)
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
Australian "Crocodile Dundee" actor Paul Hogan has sold his Malibu home to "Thor" actor (and fellow-Aussie) Chris Hemsworth for $4.8 million. The 6,382-square-foot house changed hands a few months ago in June -- a good find by real estate blogger Real Estalker. Hunky Chris' new five-bedroom home sits on an acre of land and is blocked from view by gates and a wall of greenery. Lookie-loos can probably spot it from the group of paparazzi parked out in front. No doubt they'll be hoping younger brother Liam comes to visit with rumored new flame Eiza Gonzalez (or ex-fiance Miley Cyrus) on his arm -- a pap's dream come true, if ever there was one.

Crocodile Dundee Star Paul Hogan Claims Financial Advisor Stole $34 Million From Hidden Bank Account
Radar Online - almost 4 years
Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan is desperately trying to track down millions of dollars that have gone missing from a hidden overseas bank account. The 80s action star is struggling to recover $34 million held in a Swiss bank account since the funds were allegedly misappropriated by financial advisory firm Strachhans, reported TheHuffingtonPost.com. The money was hidden in the offshore account as a tax haven, but now Hogan’s sneaky cost-cutting has backfired and he is blaming his tax adviser, Philip Egglishaw. There is already an international warrant out for the ”bowler hat Englishman,” who is the alleged mastermind behind Australia’s biggest tax evasion scheme. Comic Sinbad Loses Home Over Tax Debt Just like in the iconic comedy franchise, the Australian hero is not backing down and his advisers are taking legal action in the US alleging Egglishaw has ”absconded with or spent all” of Hogan’s millions, according to documents filed in the Californian District court by his repr ...

Annette Bourdeau: Action Movie One-Liners: Sylvester Stallone's Saving Grace
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Bullet to the Head certainly isn't destined for the awards circuit, but Sylvester Stallone's latest action flick does promise some mindless fun packed with plenty of solid one-liners. Plus, it co-stars the awesome Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian) as the big, hulking bad guy. Few actors rival Stallone when it comes to the ability to deliver menacing barbs. And if the trailer is any indication, Bullet to the Head takes full advantage of its star's skills. We see him uttering one-liners, like "Are we gonna fight or do you plan on boring me to death?" and "I take out the trash." (Hopefully there's a lot more where those came from.) To add to the campy fun, it looks like this time around the aging Sly isn't afraid to poke a bit of fun at himself. The movie sees him paired up with a young whippersnapper played by Sung Kang (The Fast & The Furious) who constantly takes jabs at the 66-year-old action hero, like "Can we listen to something from this century ...

Game Of Thrones Recap: Two Princes
Best Week Ever - almost 5 years
It’s Game Of Thrones Season 2, Episode 8 entitled “The Prince Of Winterfell,” a reference to the possibly-burnt ‘Prince’ Bran (aka “The Even Younger Wolf”) and his brother Rickon (aka “The Wolf Who’s Constantly Eating Wolfnuts”), who’ve yielded Winterfell to its current ‘Prince’ Theon (aka “Dick Wolf”). Theon’s sister Yara arrives in Winterfell to ridicule Theon and confidently sit in chairs: Yara tries to convince Theon to leave Winterfell before Northern forces instantly slaughter him, but when Theon stubbornly refuses, Yara tells him the touching story, “When you were a baby, you used to scream all the time. Also, you couldn’t walk, speak, or understand things, and now, you’re four times larger and can speak and walk upright and are an adult. My point is, if you’re gonna get obviously killed because you have no idea what you’re doing, at least do it closer to the sea so we can have a traditional Pyke Funeral with squid pallbearers in tuxedos.” Over at Camp Robb, Jaime Lann ...

'Crocodile Dundee' star Paul Hogan resolves 7-year battle with Australian tax authorities
Fox News - almost 5 years
"Crocodile Dundee" star Paul Hogan has resolved his seven-year battle with Australian tax authorities over alleged unpaid taxes dating back to his first international hit movie in the 1980s. Hogan and his friend and producer John Cornell said through their lawyer, Andrew Robinson, on Monday that the pair had reached a settlement with tax authorities to resolve more than 150 million Australian dollars ($156 million) in alleged unpaid taxes and penalties. Tax officials barred the Australian actor from returning to his Los Angeles home for two weeks over the matter in 2010 when he returned to Sydney for his mother's funeral. Hogan's lawyers eventually secured a deal that allowed him to leave Australia. The 72-year-old comedic actor became an international star with the 1986 movie "Crocodile Dundee."

  • 2013
    Age 72
    On 18 April 2013, it was reported that Egglishaw denied the allegations of his former client.
    More Details Hide Details
    As of April 2013, Hogan's financial advisor Stewart remained in a dispute with the Australian Tax Office.
    More Details Hide Details Hogan then reappeared in the media in April 2013 due to an AU$32.3 million issue with a Swiss bank run by the Geneva firm Strachans. Following the placement of the monetary sum in an offshore account for the purpose of tax avoidance, Hogan is unable to access the funds as of April 2013 and a United States court action that sought AU$80 million in damages proved unsuccessful for Hogan. Hogan publicly stated that he believes that Philip Egglishaw, the principal of Strachans and a former tax advisor to Hogan, has absconded with the money and Hogan's American legal representative Schuyler "Sky" Moore filed corresponding documents in a Californian Court based on this claim.
  • 2011
    Age 70
    In January 2011, it was announced that Hogan is suing the Australian government, his lawyer stating that Hogan's "earning potential and reputation has been decimated."
    More Details Hide Details Hogan has since likened the Australian Tax Office to the Taliban and referred to staff as 'a-holes'. In May 2012, it was announced that following mediation before ex-High Court Judge the entities settled with the Commissioner of Taxation in an agreement "without admission". The parties have agreed that the terms of the settlement are to be confidential, but as part of the settlement, the Departure Prohibition Order has been revoked by the Commissioner.
  • 2010
    Age 69
    In November 2010, the Australian Tax Office dropped its criminal investigation of him and his business manager for tax evasion.
    More Details Hide Details
    On 20 August 2010, Hogan flew to Sydney for his mother's funeral.
    More Details Hide Details Upon arrival he was issued a Departure Prohibition Order by the Australian Taxation Office, which prevented him leaving the country until his alleged tax debt was paid or settled. The nation's tax office claims he owes taxes on A$37.5 million of undeclared income. On 3 September, Hogan was granted permission to return to the US through an agreement between his lawyers and Australian tax officials, though the terms of the agreement have not been disclosed. Hogan continues to deny any wrongdoing in the case.
    On 18 June 2010 in the Australian High Court, Hogan lost a long-running legal battle to keep the contents of his tax documents secret, paving the way for details of his offshore accounts to be published.
    More Details Hide Details Earlier the same year, Australian media reported that the Australian Crime Commission was in the final stages of preparing to lay criminal charges of tax evasion against him, film producer John Cornell and their accountant Anthony Stewart, whom it suspects of channeling millions of dollars from the proceeds of the film "Crocodile" Dundee and other films into offshore tax havens. The release of the documents is expected to help finalize their case.
  • 2008
    Age 67
    In October 2008, Hogan scored a major victory in his tax fight with the Australian Crime Commission, who were forced to pay up to an estimated A$5 million for legal bills dating back to 2006 and were required to return seized personal financial documents that they had admitted were irrelevant.
    More Details Hide Details Hogan has not been charged in connection with the investigation, which began in 2003.
    In July 2008, Hogan commented to Network Ten that he had "paid plenty of tax" in Australia and that he had nothing to fear from the Australian Taxation Office investigation.

    Hogan married his "Crocodile" Dundee co-star Linda Kozlowski in 1990. He has five children with his first wife and one with his second wife. In October 2013, Kozlowski filed for divorce from Hogan, citing irreconcilable differences.

  • 1985
    Age 44
    In 1985, Hogan was named Australian of the Year.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 1985, Hogan starred as an Australian World War I 'digger' named Pat Cleary in the critically acclaimed mini-series Anzacs which aired on the Nine Network.
    More Details Hide Details Cleary was described as the quintessential Aussie larrikin and series writer John Dixon wrote the part of Cleary with Hogan in mind. The series included a "who's who" of Australian television and film actors of the day including Jon Blake, Andrew Clarke, Megan Williams, Tony Bonner, Bill Kerr, Ilona Rodgers, Vivean Gray and Robert Coleby. Throughout the decade, he appeared on British TV in advertisements for Foster's Lager, in which he played an earthy Australian abroad in London. The character's most notable line (spoken incredulously at a ballet performance) "Struth, there's a bloke down there with no strides on!", followed Hogan for years, and the popularity of its "fish out of water" humour was repeated with his next endeavour. In another advertisement from the same Foster's series, Hogan's character is approached in a London Tube station by a Japanese tourist who asks, 'Do you know the way to Cockfosters?' (referring to an area in North London), to which Hogan replies (with a puzzled look on his face): "Drink it warm, mate."
  • THIRTIES
  • 1973
    Age 32
    The series, which ran for 60 episodes between 1973 and 1984, was popular in his native country, and South Africa, and showcased his trademark lighthearted but laddish ocker humour.
    More Details Hide Details The early series was on Channel Seven and by 1975, it was screened on Channel Nine where it remained until the end of 1984. In the 1970s, he advertised Winfield cigarettes in television, print and billboard advertisements in which he wore a formal dinner suit. These ads always ended with the catchphrase "Anyhow, have a Winfield". During the early 1980s, Hogan filmed a series of television ads promoting the Australian tourism industry, which aired in the United States. An advertisement the phrase "shrimp on the barbie" which aired from 1984, was particularly successful.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1958
    Age 17
    Hogan and his first wife, Noelene Edwards, married in 1958. They separated and divorced in 1981 and remarried less than one year later. A second divorce, initiated in 1986, was considered one of Australia's ugliest in celebrity circles.
