How's this for an understatement? "My next film is gonna star Mariah Carey, so that should be really interesting."
I initially interpret Aaron Woodley's words as a Colbert-ian jape but, no, he's quite serious. Reports published in the industry trades last week confirm it. Produced by Lee Daniels (Monster's Ball, The Woodsman), the film is called Tennessee and is slated to start shooting in the spring.
"It's a straight-ahead drama about two brothers on a road trip," Woodley continues. "The younger brother has leukemia and they're searching for their estranged father to help save his life through a bone-marrow transplant. They haven't talked to him in 10 years and he was an abusive alcoholic. Along the way, they meet Mariah Carey's character, who's working in a diner and has dreams of being a country singer."
Woodley admits that this is about as far away from Rhinoceros Eyes as he could get. But he's determined not to be pigeonholed "as the director who does these weird quirky movies." (Perhaps he's recalling the time his uncle nearly directed Basic Instinct 2.) As for Carey's contribution, Woodley believes it will banish any unpleasant memories of her first movie venture. "Glitter," he says, letting the title hang in the air for a moment. "Whatever -- that's the past. People will see what she's really capable of."
She really liked Rhinoceros Eyes, too. She told him so while she was giving him a tour of her closets. No, he's still not making this up.

Comedian Margaret Cho despises George W. Bush — and claims she has allies in the President's wife and twin daughters.
"Those daughters" — Jenna and Barbara — "party really hard, and that's all I really know about them. But they must be really embarrassed by their father," said Cho, who'll be among the headliners at tonight's Air America-sponsored primal scream at the President, "Bring 'Em Home Now!" at the Hammerstein Ballroom.
First Lady Laura Bush, meanwhile, "seems to be much smarter than he is," Cho told me. "She seems like she hates him — in fact, she seems like she burns with hatred. Her smile is just a little bit too, well, wide. It's more like a grimace."
And since Mrs. Bush is reputed to be a secret cigarette smoker, "I think she's trying to kill him with second-hand smoke."
It's clear that the 37-year-old Cho — who's on the bill of tonight's anti-war concert with Michael Stipe, Rufus Wainwright, peace activist Cindy Sheehan (and, I hear, Moby) — hasn't been intimidated by the ugly reaction to her anti-Bush comments two years ago.
On that occasion, after right-wing blogs attacked her, she was deluged with abusive, profane E-mails — especially for comparing the President to Hitler.
She's more than happy to repeat the offending line: "Bush would be Hitler if he applied himself. But he's just lazy."
Cho added: "This administration has been great for comedy, but terrible for the country. Everybody he appoints is bad. We have a murderous vice president, and I don't understand why they don't send Dick Cheney to Iraq. He could shoot everybody."
If not a laugh, perhaps a riot.
HAHA wow...I don't even know where to begin..
Douglas Urbanski, of the Douglas Management Group has told Dissendium that unless an offer is made by next week, Gary Oldman will not be reprising his role as Sirius Black in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. A deadline has been put in place for early next week, Mr. Urbanski told Dissendium. He said that the desire on Warner Brother's part has been low since the beginning, even though the money Oldman wants to reprise his role is little. He added that it is unfair for Oldman to wait, as other films have assumed he is apart of the next Potter film, and, like the rest of us, he needs work for the summer.
As of this moment, Gary Oldman is not a part of Order of the Phoenix, has never been, and unless anything changes next week, will not be a part of this.
WTF? Not cool WB!
Neil Sean of Sky News reports that Britney Spears has signed on for another season of her reality show 'Chaotic', which will feature very little of hubby Kevin Federline. Though it isn't because the pair are headed for divorce, rather K-Fed has his own show which chronicles his bid to become a rap star.
Britney Spears’ househusband Kevin Federline has finally secured a j-o-b and it’s right here in Atlanta. Well, OK, for like three hours next Saturday anyway. Unbelievably, the budding white boy rapper and former backup dancer can now be rented as nightclub “entertainment.” Chris Kappy, who runs Elevation Media Group, secured the pseudo-celebrity booking for Vision nightclub in Midtown, where K-Fed will be placed on display in the “VIP circle” at 11 p.m. March 25. VIP tables for 10 are budget priced at $1,500 each for the evening. So will people actually pay dough to go hang in a club with a guy most famous for dumping his pregnant girlfriend to shack up with the Southern-fried Spears?
“It’s unbelievable how high he ranked as a club draw,” Kappy told Buzz on Friday as we desperately tried to reclaim our jaw from the Buzz Central recycling bin on the floor. “Only Paris Hilton ranked higher in the survey we did. He’s just such an oddity. He’s a guy who bagged the hottest pop icon in the world. Not even Justin Timberlake closed that deal.” And Kappy says that local club-hopping females can’t wait to get up close and personal to the scruffy, corn-row braided Mr. Spears. Explains Kappy: “He’s just got some kind of sex appeal that other men don’t have.” While Kappy wouldn’t disclose exactly how much Federline is bagging for the three-hour appearance (Buzz has heard whispers that it’s as much as $20,000), he did acknowledge: “For a guy who used to be a backup dancer, he’s pulling down some nice coin for this.”
Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Cate Blanchett plans to move back home to Australia so her eldest son can be schooled in Sydney.
The acclaimed actress told a News Limited newspaper she wanted her eldest son, Dash, to be taught Down Under.
"When Dash starts at 'big school' next year we will be making a more concerted move to be back in our Hunters Hill home in Sydney," she told the paper. "I love our life back home."
Blanchett, who already has two sons, also suggested she and her husband, scriptwriter Andrew Upton, may consider a third.
"We make pretty good babies so we'll just have to see about that," she said.
Blanchett is the latest in a long list of Australian celebrities who have chosen to raise their families away from Hollywood.

The 47-year-old actress is fed up with men who expect to date the fantasy Sharon Stone.
"You date somebody and three months into the relationship you get the flu and he's so furious, and he goes to his front-row seats at the basketball game without you because he doesn't want to be with the person who gets the flu," Stone told Newsweek.
"I stopped dating about a year ago, and decided to take some time to heal myself from a variety of traumas, that being one of them."
Stone recently denied reports she was dating retired Lakers' hoop star Rick Fox and TV talk-show host Craig Ferguson. Both men might be too cool for Stone's tastes, anyway.
"Guys who think they're cool aren't cool to me," said Stone, who often describes herself as an "ubergeek" with an IQ of 154.
"The kind of guy I'm looking for would want to wear SpongeBob pajamas and sit in the front row at the school play," she said.
Since divorcing from San Francisco Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein in 2003, Stone said she's "come to recognize that I'm special, and my children are special, and I deserve to be treasured like anyone does."
She has two adopted sons, Roan, 5, and 10-month-old Laird.
The blond screen siren is about to make more men fantasize about her, geeks included, as she reprises her role as seductive murder suspect Catherine Tramell in "Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction."
The film, to be released March 31, is so steamy it had to be watered down to get its R rating.
According to reports, Buck (born David Brown) recently held a three-day birthday celebration, but is supposedly refusing to pay Irving Brown II, the personal chef that catered the event.
Approximately 300 guests attended Buck's party, including stars like R&B quartet Jagged Edge and Young Jeezy. The bash included Cristal, prime rib and seafood.
Word is Brown often works with celebs, but has never had problems until working for Buck.
The rapper's last birthday bash also turned wrong. Last year, 30 police officers had to restore order when roughly 700 people attempted to rush in Nashville, Tenn's Tap nightclub because tickets being sold out. This year's event was held at King of Clubs nightclub in Nashville.
"He called us at the last minute and wanted us to do this for three nights and then cancelled after the first night, saying he couldn't afford it," Dr. Katherine Brown, Irivng's wife told the Post Chronicle. "Meanwhile, he drives off in his Bentley and was walking around the party carrying a bottle of Cristal in each hand that costs $475 each."
Why the hell wouldn't he pay him? I don't get it.

Fallen star MICHAEL JACKSON is reportedly planning to resurrect his music career by recording a duet with rapper 50 CENT.
The reclusive pop star approached an associate of the IN DA CLUB star at the Bahrain Grand Prix last week (ends17MAR06), where Jackson has been living since he acquitted of child molestation charges last summer (05).
A source tells British newspaper the News Of The World, "Michael was talking to 50's DJ WHOO KID who spoke to 50 there and then about it.
"The track would catapult Michael back into the limelight, which he is desperate for, and 50 has always been a fan."
In a lengthy rap posted on his Web site (www.terrellowens.com), the newly acquired Dallas Cowboy openly taunts the Eagles about earning a guaranteed $10 million this season from Dallas.
"When it comes to this game I'm the best in the field/Some said I was gonna sign just a one year deal/But I got what I wanted up front, 10 mil/Changed the rules of the game so now how you feel?"
Owens also takes shots at the Eagles management: "I got a brand new team/I am a Cowboy now/No more black and green/To the haters that said I'm not going to get my money/I'm laughing in your face ha ha that's funny," he raps.
This past Saturday (March 18), Owens signed a three-year contract with the Cowboys.
Absent from the press conference was Cowboys coach Bill Parcells, who was forced to release protégé Keyshawn Johnson to make room for Owens.
Details of Owens' contract weren't immediately available, but the deal is likely to include behavior-related provisions.
His blowup with Philadelphia last season led to new regulations regarding punishment, which were written into the NFL's latest collective bargaining agreement.
Before his actions limited him to nine games last season, Owens had at least 75 receptions and 1,100 yards receiving in five straight seasons.
Owens is looking forward to a stellar season with the Cowboys as he raps: "And this will probably be my best season by far, no more getting my Eagle on, you can meet me at the stars."
At press time, Eagles' management had not issued any public comment regarding Owens or his diss track.
All I can say is.... THANK GOD THE LIONS GOT RID OF HARRINGTON! What a pos.
The band Keane have announced details for their upcoming album. On their official message board, they posted a handwritten letter stating that their new album will be called "Under The Iron Sea," and will be released June 20th in the US and Canada and June 12th in the rest of the world.
Their debut CD "Hopes and Fears" was the second-biggest selling album of the year in the U.K. in 2004. They also won two awards at the 2005 Brit Awards: Best British album for Hopes and Fears and the British breakthrough act award.

I'm pretty excited. Their CD is my favorite by far and they are the nicest guys I have ever met. Except the name got "Under The Sea" stuck in my head. :(

It looks good and phillip seymour hoffman looks good too.
According to rollingstone.com, the scripts for the show have been kept under wraps, so no details on what characters the rappers will portray have been revealed.
Both Treach and Lord Jamar had recurring roles in HBO's prison drama "Oz," which came to an end in 2003.
Treach's groupmate Vinnie also has small screen aspirations as well.
"I am working on a TV show for young adults called, 'The Block,'" states Vin Rock on the group's website. "It's a 'Teen Summit' meets '106 & Park'-kind of show. I want to impact today's youth in a broader sense. There's a bunch of negative energy out there and I'm gonna bring some positive vibes to the youth."
In related news, Treach and Vinnie will be sharing a stage with Black Sheep when they perform at B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill in New York on May 17.

Fox has just ordered up two more seasons of that Emmy-winning animated series, guaranteeing that Homer, Bart and the rest of the Springfield gang will keep going through a 19th season in 2008. The 'toon will also mark its 400th episode in May 2007.
Not since CBS' Gunsmoke ruled the airwaves has a TV program so successfully etched itself into the pop culture landscape for so long.
With Monday's announcement, The Simpsons is getting closer to tying the western's record 20-year run.
The Simpsons, created by cartoonist Matt Groening, holds Guinness World Record titles for longest running 'toon in TV history, longest running comedy on the tube (having surpassed The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, which lasted for 15 seasons from 1952 to 1966), and having the most guest stars in a TV series.
To put it in perspective, a 10-year-old who tunes into a Simpsons episode today was in diapers when season six wrapped up with the classic "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" cliffhanger. Those born in 1987, when sketchy, prototype Simpsons first appeared as brief segments in between the sketches on Fox's The
Tracey Ullman Show, are now ready to collect high school diplomas (that is, if they adhered to Lisa's, not Bart's, study habits).
The Simpsons voice cast-- Dan Castellaneta (Homer, Krusty, Grandpa Simpson, Mayor Quimby), Julie Kavner (Marge, Selma, Patty), Nancy Cartwright (Bart, Nelson, Ralph Wiggum), Yeardley Smith (Lisa), Hank Azaria (Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum) and Harry Shearer (Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner)--are reportedly signed up for the additional seasons.
As Monty Burns would say, that's excellent news considering the group's periodic strike threats to get higher paydays as the show's evolved into a $1 billion juggernaut for Fox and its parent, News Corp. Apparently rumors of The Simpsons demise over the years, including even comments to that effect from Groening himself, have been greatly exaggerated.
Meanwhile, a big-screen Simpsons is definitely in the works and will likely debut at the end of the series' run...whenever that happens to be.
The good news on Monday wasn't limited to The Simpsons camp. Fox also annouced it's firing up the barbecue for an additional season of King of the Kill.

Mike Judge, the latter 'toon debuted in 1997 and has become the second-longest running comedy on television. Hill, which won an Emmy in 1999 for Best Animated Series, is now back on the air after being preempted by Fox's coverage of the NFL playoffs. Its 11th season is slated to kick off in January 2007.

Star weds one of the Boyz
EX-Boyzone star Stephen Gately got hitched to his boyfriend yesterday.
The singer-turned-actor, 30, swapped diamond rings with businessman Andrew Cowles, 29, at a civil service in London.
The couple are thought to have been introduced by Sir Elton John in 2003.
Stephen said his former bandmates Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch were among guests at the reception at Goring Hotel, near Buckingham Palace.
He added: “This is the happiest day of my life.”
The Dublin-born heart-throb famously revealed he was gay in The Sun in 1999.

At around midnight, we met up with La Lohan at Sway on Spring St., which we had never been to before but was totally hipster heaven. It's the new MisShapes!
We think we heard whole albums by Morrisey and Sinead O'Connor.
1987 was a great year!
At around 2-ish, we hopped in Lindz's car and headed over to Bungalow and stayed until closing.
We began the evening having dinner with our roomie, Miss Milly Diaz, at yummy restaurant SAPA in Chelsea. And, then, we met up with our friend David from Spike TV and headed on over to Hiro at the Maritime hotel, where we saw Drew Elliot from Paper and our old friends (who are dating) Will Wikle and LOGO's Jason Bellini.
As opposed to Sway, Hiro is a gay party. And you know what that means? They played two songs off Madonna's new album.
I love New Yooo-ooo-ooork!
P.S. Look out for a celebrity playlist on PerezHilton.com from Miss Lohan coming at ya real soon.

Natalie Portman is horrified she was considered a sex symbol aged just 12.
The stunning actress shot to fame playing a young, Lolita-esque orphan who befriends a hardened assassin in ‘Leon' in 1994.
Although she won universal acclaim for her stunning performance, the ‘Star Wars' beauty admits she found it disturbing that some men lusted after her - even though she was a child.
The brunette star, now 24, revealed to Britain's Independent newspaper: "I had a bad experience when ‘Leon' first came out.
"In hindsight, I'm really proud of that film, though at the time it was unnerving to find myself being suddenly looked upon as a sexual object when I was only 12."

Every once in a while something comes along and changes the musical world away from its conventions. Sometimes these things are a flash in the pan while other times the music world embraces this new voice and change rushes over in an enormous wave. In 1991 this kind of thing happened.
Nirvana released it's second album, "Nevermind", and they were met with a frenzied seemingly overnight success that no one could have possibly expected. With crossover potential that stretched over to embrace the ears of people who might only listen to bands and songs from certain genres, they busted the gates wide open for a flood of new sounds from grunge, alternative, punk, and even metal bands everywhere. Often compared to the frenzy that was the British invasion, Nirvana lead this brigade with Nevermind's opening track, "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Unmistakable from its opening guitar riff, this song heralded a new sound and became anthemic to a whole generation.
While Kurt Cobain may no longer be part of the corporeal world, his words, voice, music, and attitude can still be felt today thanks to the full albums, videos, and unheard of amount of bootlegs left behind. Sure, there are still some songs here and there that diehard Nirvana fans may have not been able to get in its finest form of clarity, and we are still waiting for an official DVD release that catalogs all their music videos, but the one thing that many fans have been asking for and have never received in ANY form, official or not, is an action figure. Many other musical icons have been brought to plastic and NECA is proud to be able to bring that same respect and admiration to Kurt Cobain's memory with our figure.
Based on his appearance in the video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" this Kurt Cobain Action figure includes his guitar, rendered in painstaking detail, and part of the gymnasium floor as his base. Be on the lookout for Kurt to stand with his guitar again on store shelves late in June. Here is our first look at our "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Kurt Cobain.

More news from Keane. Channel 4's Planet Sound have announced that the first two UK singles from Keane's new album will be 'Atlantic', a download-only single to be released in mid-April, followed by 'Is It Any Wonder?', which will follow on physical formats on May 29th. These will be the first singles off their new album, 'Under The Iron Sea," which I posted about here earlier.
'Atlantic' is rumored to be about the struggle of pianist Tim Rice-Oxley's relationship with his now wife on the road. Rumors are that they'll start a US tour in or around September/October.
