Who Did Andi Dorfman Pick in the "Bachelorette" Finale?

ABC/Craig Sjodin(LOS ANGELES) -- After an emotional two-hour finale of The Bachelorette on ABC Monday night, Andi Dorfman chose Josh Murray, accepting his marriage proposal and leaving fellow suitor Nick Viall stunned and heartbroken.

Dorfman, a former district attorney, cried when she visited Viall to tell him he wasn't her choice.

Viall said he never saw the disappointment coming, telling her he woke up that morning confident about them.

"Man, I really thought this was it," Viall said from the back of an SUV as he was driven away after receiving the news. "I really thought she loved me."

With tears in his eyes, Viall said he thought he and Dorfman had something special. Earlier in the episode she had said their relationship was filled with passion.

Later she had happier news for Murray, who, during the final rose ceremony, told her he wanted to give her the world.

"Andi you are the answer to all of my prayers you are the answer to my dreams you are the woman I thought never existed in this world. All my worries they just seem to vanish when I'm with you," Murray said.

Dorfman told Murray that she was in love with him and wanted to spend her life with him and have children together.

The competition started with 25 eligible men vying for Dorfman's hand. With the other men dismissed by Dorfman, Viall and Murray were last ones standing.

She narrowed it down week by week to Murray, a 29-year-old former pro baseball player from Atlanta, and Viall, a 33-year-old software sales executive who lives in Chicago.

This was the tenth edition of The Bachelorette.

Kiefer Sutherland Responds to Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Negative Comments

Douglas Gorenstein/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- Kiefer Sutherland's rep tells ABC News that the negative comments from former 24 co-star Freddie Prinze, Jr. about working together came as something of a surprise.

"Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances," his rep told ABC News.

The rep added, "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."

The response came after comments Prinze made to ABC News' Jason Nathanson while he was at Comic-Con promoting his new Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels.

"I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze told ABC. "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face, I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."

He continued, "I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."

Prinze, 38, said because of the experience, he stopped acting for a while and even went to work at World Wrestling Entertainment with Vince McMahon.

Behati Prinsloo Talks Having Kids With Husband Adam Levine

Peter Kramer/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Adam Levine, 35, and Behati Prinsloo, 25, tied the knot less than 10 days ago, but the newly-married Victoria's Secret model isn't afraid to admit that she has babies on the brain.

Prinsloo spoke to Net-a-Porter and told the magazine she has a "definite" plan to have children with Levine, but doesn't look to far into the future.

"I have no expectations. Not in a bad way, but I've learned that you can't plan ahead. I live day by day and see what happens. It's vague, but I like it that way," she added.

Prinsloo also revealed that her look suits her relationship with the Maroon 5 rockstar, whom she married on July 19.

"My look is grungy, very rock'n'roll," she tells the magazine about her style. "I love the '70s; I love the vibe. The music I listen to most is Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, punk."

Levine revealed that he had popped the question to Prinsloo last July and even went on Live with Kelly and Michael, saying the proposal was one of the most intense experiences of his life.

"You can't be confident about it," he said. "I'm a confident person, but I got on that knee and everything changed immediately."

How Sandra Bullock Celebrated Her 50th Birthday in Wyoming

ABC/Rick Rowell(JACKSON HOLE, Wyo.) -- Sandra Bullock kicked off her 50th birthday celebration a couple days early with a night of music and drinks with friends at a country-western bar in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The Gravity star, who turned 50 Saturday, and a group of girlfriends, including Chelsea Handler, got the festivities started at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar on Thursday.

An eyewitness told ABC News that Bullock, "came in with about eight friends, sat down and had a couple cocktails. They just enjoyed themselves. Nobody got up on the table and danced."

But according to Dianne McManus, a member of the Southern Soul Allstars, the band that performed that night, Bullock and her friends did get out on the dance floor.

"They came out and danced and took a bunch of pictures," McManus told People.

"She's real sweet," the eyewitness told ABC News, adding that Bullock has been coming to Jackson Hole for years. "She gave her cocktail waitress her autograph, and she's a good tipper."

Pictures from Bullock’s fun-filled day ended up on Instagram.

Handler posted a photo of Bullock and her sister Gesine, nose-to-nose, earlier on Thursday.

Comedian Whitney Cummings posted a pic of the bar's red neon sign, along with the caption, "Now I know where all the cowboys have gone. Let's go make some bad choices!"

Freddie Prinze Jr. Trashes Kiefer Sutherland

Vince Bucci/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) -- Freddie Prinze Jr. and Kiefer Sutherland worked together on 24 a few years ago, an experience that Prinze tells ABC News Radio was “terrible.”

Prinze was at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend to promote his new Disney XD show Star Wars Rebels when the topic of past projects came up and Prinze, completely unsolicited, recalled that working on the Fox series in 2010 almost led him to quit acting.

“I did 24, it was terrible. I hated every moment of it," Prinze told ABC News Radio. “Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face, everybody that's worked with him has said that. And I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped.”

Prinze, who was a can't-miss movie star in the late 1990s with hits like She's All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer, dropped off the map for a while and even ventured into other projects.

"I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE...and it was a crazier job than working with Kiefer," he told ABC News Radio. "But, at least he was cool and tall. I didn't have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do. Just put the guy on an apple box or don't hire me next time. You know I'm six feet and he's five-four."

Sutherland is listed as five-foot-nine on various websites. He was also at Comic-Con, promoting 24: Live Another Day.

In an interview with Parade magazine in January 2010 about the then upcoming eighth season of 24, Sutherland had nothing but positive things to say about working with Prinze.  "We have some great actors joining us -- Mykelti Williamson is the head of CTU, Freddie Prinze Jr. is playing my partner. So, it’s this great balance between something that’s new and what fans will find familiar.”

A request by ABC for comment from Sutherland's rep was not immediately answered.

WATCH: “Family Guy” Meets “The Simpsons”

FOX(SAN DIEGO) -- You no longer have to imagine what would happen if Peter Griffin met Homer Simpson, because a first look at the Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover episode has been released.

The extended five-minute clip of the Griffins’ much-anticipated visit to Springfield for the Sept. 28 one-hour show was screened during the Family Guy panel at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday.

It opens with the Griffins somehow winding up in Springfield, where Peter and Homer initially bond over beer and donuts while their sons Stewie and Bart make prank phone calls and skateboard together.

Peter and Homer’s friendship takes a dark turn when Homer says Peter’s Pawtucket Patriot Ale tastes a lot like Springfield’s Duff Beer.

When Peter says the ale “may have been inspired by Duff, but…takes it in another direction,” it’s also a dig at the shows’ similarities.

The two men duke it out in an epic fight that also involves a runaway bus and a nuclear meltdown.

Watch what happens when these animated worlds collide below:

Bindi Irwin Reflects on Her Father, "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin

Lisa Maree Williams/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Bindi Irwin, the daughter of "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, has been sharing some of the fond memories she has of her late father.  The Australian wildlife expert died after being stung by a stingray in 2006 when Bindi was just eight years old.

Bindi reveals to People.com that her dad's tragic passing still haunts her. She explains, "I remember after we lost dad, so many adults came up to me and said, 'Honey, time heals all wounds.'  That is the biggest lie you will ever hear. It doesn't. That kind of sadness never goes away. It's like losing a piece of your heart that you never get back."

The 16-year-old says sometimes she and her brother Robert visit the handprints their father left in concrete outside the family's home at the Australia Zoo.  Bindi explains, "We'll put our hands in them, just to see how they've grown and how they match up to dad's.”

She also has all of the letters her father wrote as he traveled the world in search of animals.  Bindi says, "Reading those letters back is special. I'm grateful he wrote them. Those little things remind you of him and give you strength to keep going."

Bindi has been keeping her father's memory alive by continuing his work. She is working with SeaWorld as a youth ambassador.

Comic-Con Closes with Avengers Re-Assembling for "Age of Ultron" Peek

iStock Editorial/Thinkstock(SAN DIEGO) -- As expected, Comic-Con International: San Diego kicked into high gear on Saturday, and the talk of the convention was a triple superhero tease: Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, and Warner Bros.' Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The latter film remains on a collision course with Marvel's Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016.

Marvel brought the big guns to bear in Hall H and managed to reassemble most of the Avengers -- minus a pregnant Scarlett Johansson, who sent a greeting via video, and writer/director Joss Whedon, laid up from knee surgery.

Robert Downey Jr. entered the hall in full Tony Stark mode, grooving to Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" while pulling out a bunch of roses from a sleek looking case. He tossed the flowers into the crowd, saving one white one each for Ultron's female cast members Elizabeth Olsen and Cobie Smulders, the latter reprising her role as former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill.

Introduced prior were their Avengers co-stars Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Olsen's fellow newcomer and onscreen sibling Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays Quicksilver to her Scarlet Witch. James Spader was also making his first appearance on a Marvel panel ahead of his role as the movie's baddie Ultron. Paul Bettany, known in the Marvel universe as the voice of Iron Man's computer sidekick J.A.R.V.I.S., was on hand, too as he will be seen for the first time in the 2015 film as The Vision.

Near the close of the presentation, Josh Brolin surprised the crowd, wielding the golden Infinity Gauntlet, which gives his character Thanos nearly unlimited power. "Where's my rose?" he growled to Downey, who pulled out the final flower -- this one purple, which not coincidentally matches Thanos' face. Brolin, who appears as the character for the first time in Guardians of the Galaxy, then took the flower in his hand and chomped it, to the crowd's and Downey's delight.

The panel also screened a snippet of the film, that started with a party in Avengers Tower, features a Hulk vs. Iron Man battle, and ends with the team bloodied and battered, and Cap's nearly unbreakable shield metaphorically shattered.

Another Marvel project, Ant-Man, also brought its stars to a Q&A panel Saturday, including director Peyton Reed, and stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly. The presentation also included some footage of the movie's titular hero exercising his science-based powers: the ability to shrink down to ant size and back, and the ability to call the insects to come to his rescue. Rudd called joining the Marvel universe, "a mind-bender," while Douglas admitted, "I've always vicariously looked at Marvel films from afar with tremendous envy." Ant-Man crawls into theaters June 17, 2015.

[The Five Biggest Moments from Comic-Con]

On Warner Bros.' side of things, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill made an appearance to plug their onscreen face-off between Affleck's Caped Crusader and Cavill's Man of Steel. The teaser was just that: Batman strides onto a roof, his eyes glowing as they appeared in the comics, and fires up the Bat-Signal. The beam cuts through the rainy night to reveal Superman, his eyes burning a furious red. The crowd went ape. The reaction was mixed for a later reveal of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman costume -- with some fans digging it and others digging at it, by saying it looked just like Lucy Lawless' outfit from Xena: Warrior Princess.

One coming attraction that those who didn't go to San Diego Comic-Con get to enjoy is the first trailer for WB's Mad Max: Fury Road, the Road Warrior reboot that features Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy taking Mel Gibson's place as a drifter in a violent, post-apocalyptic world. Mad Max's original director George Miller is calling the shots once again. The movie rolls into theaters May 15, 2015.

Other Comic-Con-related tidbits include:

  • Director James Gunn tweeted that he's writing and directing a sequel to his Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens Friday. The sequel is set for July 28, 2017.

 

  • Hobbit fanboy Stephen Colbert made a surprise appearance -- dressed as his "Lake Town spy" cameo character from The Desolation of Smaug -- to moderate a panel for the third Hobbit film, the Battle of the Five Armies. Co-star Benedict Cumberbatch is no stranger to geek-friendly fare, thanks to his voicing Smaug, and roles in Sherlock and Star Trek Into Darkness, but he'd never been to Comic-Con. He told ABC News Radio he's plotting coming back next year in disguise. "I'd love to get more into the thick of it a little bit. you know," says the actor, "I would love to just mix in amongst the people a little bit more. Because the amount of devotion of the people coming out -- these are fans who have already paid for their ticket to see your film, then paid to come to the convention, who spend a fortune on their costumes and travel and you know, their, their stay -- It's just, it's just mind-blowing, and it's for the love of what you do!"

 

  • Hobbit and Lord of the Rings series star Andy Serkis told ABC News Radio that this Comic-Con felt different for him than the others he's attended, as the performer realized Battle of the Five Armies is his last J.R.R. Tolkien-related film. "This one has an extra layer of emotion attached to it, obviously, because it's the last one with Middle-Earth, really," the Planet of the Apes and Star Wars: Episode VII actor explained. "And...it was a really big achievement I think to get, to get everyone from both sets of films -- you know The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy, together in one room, you know, as many, as...we could."
