Well here he was then.
And here he is now... not to shabby.
Here is his myspace---> http://www.myspace.com/woeismiko You can view his more emo pictures there, and his little asian girlfriend, such a cute couple.
The studio handpicked 27 teenage and child amputees from South African hospitals to appear as extras in the Leonardo DiCaprio film and promised to provide prosthetic limbs as well as a small salary for their contribution. However, more than three months after filming wrapped, the kids are reportedly still waiting for their new limbs…
And here's the money shot, a rep for Warner Brothers told the amputees, "You will have to wait for December, when the movie comes out, so we can get some publicity out of it."
Holy Christ. Really? They couldn't just put little Santa hats on the amputees now and film it, then show it in December. Maybe give one of them a giant candy cane instead of a leg. Well, okay, maybe not that, but they could do something. At least pay them now. I'd rather be a raccoon in America than a human being in Africa, those people have enough problems. Hey Warner Brothers - fuck you.

Yikes. This looks bad. Like, Madonna-stealing-an-orphan bad.
SHOCKINGLY enough, no one in New York wants to hear Kevin Federline rap. Our spies at Webster Hall say that so few $20 tickets have been sold for Federline's Nov. 4 show that "we may just cancel it. New Yorkers are clearly not fans of 'Popozao' [Federline's pathetic first single]." Britney Spears' hubby - who claims he is the most underrated person in Hollywood - should be used to rejection by now. We hear his Cleveland show was also canceled due to lack of interest.
RUFUS Wainwright couldn't have cared less about the other luminaries at the Whitney's Fall Gala the other night. The musician spent much of the time making out with his boyfriend, Jorn Weisbrodt - and they took their antics to the party's photo booth, blocking a long line of people waiting to take their own pictures. Also spotted at the party, which raised $2.4 million for the museum, was Michelle Williams - who, when asked for her coat-check ticket at the gift-bag table, huffed, "I don't need a ticket. I am Michelle Williams!" Uma Thurman freaked when caught smoking a cigarette by paparazzi lurking outside and shrieked, "Oh, [bleep]," before running back inside.

From the Times:
The situation is tricky for a network like Comedy Central, part of Viacom. Its audience is young and technologically sophisticated, and Comedy Central stars in the past have used YouTube and clip services to interact with their audience.
No kidding. The Times cites the obvious in Colbert's White House Correspondents Dinner, which caught fire on YouTube before C-Span had it removed (though its still easy to find on the site, for example here).
It's an interesting move on the part of Comedy Central, which has seemed to turn a blinde eye until now, to their benefit: Not everyone gets cable, or is home to see every show religiously in the 11 - 12am block. YouTube highlights are wildly popular the next day (almost always cracking the HuffPo's top five news stories), and such clips are popular with random procrastinating surfers as well (which ETP can confirm anecdotally). But the videos are available on Comedy Central's own site, which is fairly user friendly (though not as user friendly as YouTube), and it is only natural that it would want users to go there (recently, it even took out ads on HuffPo in the house style, directing readers to specifc clips).
The Times quotes from Jon Stewart in Wired in Sept/05, regarding the need to balance getting stuff out there with actually having it funded: "If they're not making their money, we ain't doing our show." Not so different, really, than the arguments for and against TimesSelect, really, but here's the other side, from BoingBoing, on "Lazy Sunday" but just as applicable here: "Viral means the stuff has a life of its own, guys, and that's what made it a hit."
In the meantime, while you still can, enjoy this clip of Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinem with Stephen Colbert in a wonderfully awkward and intelligently-conceived clip, where the medium really is the message. By the way, this originally ran in late September and hit a blind spot - wasn't mentioned or picked up. They reran it in early October and it caught, with YouTube clips appearing on HuffPo and a number of other blogs. This version has been viewed 36,317 times.
In true diva form, singer Gladys Knight launched her new lingerie line, Knightwear, on the stage of the Apollo Theatre on Thursday. The collection is a collaboration with Ashley Stewart, who hosted the event — a charity gala to raise money for Dress for Success, the Boys Choir of Harlem and the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund.
Ashley Stewart, an urban, plus-size retailer, approached Knight with an offer this past year to become one of the company's "Great Women of Style" (a spokeswoman chosen yearly and formerly held by other notables such as Mandisa, of "American Idol" fame).
It soon became apparent that Knight longed to be more than just a pretty face for the brand.
Although Knight was unavailable for an interview, Ethan Shapiro, chief executive officer of Urban Brands Inc., parent of Ashley Stewart, explained how Knightwear came to be. "She apparently had been thinking about [a lingerie line] for a long time," said Shapiro. Knight felt "there wasn't any luxury looks like this for people who would be considered a plus-size. She had this vision of a lingerie line. So we said, ‘Let's get to work.'"
In particular, Knight wanted her clothing to serve the African-American plus-size market. Knight worked on every detail of the color and pattern and collaborated with Ashley Stewart executives on the final design. Shapiro said she added her input. "She wanted certain things." In particular, Knight "thought it should be very sensual, but not sexy, appealing but not revealing."
In its entirety, Knightwear includes 15 to 20 different styles, primarily satin- or cotton-based lingerie and nightwear which will retail from $26.99 to $29.99. From shimmering satin gowns to cotton pajama pants, the lingerie sets itself apart with an eye-popping color palette and wild animal prints. Knightwear will be offered in all of Ashley Stewart's stores nationwide, beginning Wednesday.
Much like Knight's innumerable chart-topping albums, Shapiro says, "We're projecting it'll be a sellout."
The couple, who are based in Los Angeles, wed in 2001. Anka, an actress, is the daughter of singer and songwriter Paul Anka.
Bateman, 37, whose Fox comedy "Arrested Development" was cancelled earlier this year, got his start in acting on shows such as "The Hogan Family" and "Silver Spoons."
Since the cancellation of his critically acclaimed TV series, he's been busy doing films. He has four films due out next year, including the thriller "The Kingdom," starring Jamie Foxx and Jennifer Garner, which just wrapped.
Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have separated. The couple's rep released a statement to TMZ Monday morning that says "We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time."
Sources tell TMZ Witherspoon has contacted celebrity divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman, who has represented Jennifer Aniston, Roseanne and Lisa Marie Presley.
Sources say Witherspoon spoke with Kaufman about divorcing Ryan Phillippe, her husband of seven years. The couple has two children. They met at Witherspoon's 21st birthday party.
As for why Witherspoon contacted Kaufman, we're told it was not triggered by one event. Rather, one connected source says it was "cumulative."
Divorce papers have not yet been filed.
Team Reese or Team Ryan. UHOH?
It's the second child for actress and her husband
(Holly, Finley and David in 2004)
"Charmed" star Holly Marie Combs has been blessed with another child.
The actress and her husband, David Donoho, welcomed their second son into the world on Thursday afternoon (Oct. 26) in Los Angeles, reports People.
Riley Edward Donoho was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and weighed 8.5 lbs. at birth. His older brother Finley Arthur is two years old.
"Everybody's great," says Donoho, 41. "Holly is tired, but she's fine. Riley came right out and as soon as he heard Holly's voice, he smiled. He has hair like Elvis –- a full head of black hair. The doctor said he came out looking like a 2-year-old."
Combs, 32, and Donoho met on the set of "Charmed," where he was working as a key grip. They married on Valentine's Day 2004.
On the show, Combs played Piper, one of three witch sisters along with Shannon Doherty and Alyssa Milano, and then later with Rose McGowan after Doherty left the show.
Combs also appeared on "Picket Fences" and in the ABC Family movie "See Jane Date" opposite Charisma Carpenter.
I love Holly, and Finley is adorable -- I can't find a more recent shot of him at the moment, but he's so cute.
13th Annual Dream Halloween Fundraiser

Oprah Winfrey has famously given members of her audience new cars, paid off their debts and fulfilled their wildest dreams. Now she's given them what she calls the "gift of giving back."
On a show that aired Monday, Winfrey gave more than 300 audience members $1,000 debit cards sponsored by the Bank of America to donate to a charitable cause.
Winfrey called the show her "favorite giveaway ever."
"I can honestly say that every gift I've ever given has brought at least as much happiness to me as it has to the person I've given it to," the 52-year-old talk-show host said. "That's the feeling I want to pass on to you."
People can give the entire sum to one person — relatives aren't eligible — or they can split it among charitable causes. Audience members also received a DVD recorder to tape their stories for a future show.
"You're going to open your hearts, you're going to be really creative, and you're going to spend it all at once on one stranger or spend a dollar on every person," Winfrey said. "Imagine the love and kindness you can spread with $1,000."

Meds or Not, It's All Cool Between Katie & Brooke
Nothing mends a celebrity rift like a baby.
Katie Holmes seemed to forget the firestorm of controversy created by her man with regard to Brooke Shields this weekend, when she ran into Tom's former abuse-target at a private party in Los Angeles. Katie's face lit up as she gazed upon Brooke's daughter Grier, and the love-fest (however polite and camera-ready) continued throughout the rest of the conversation.
Looks like any ill-will concerning Tom Cruise's bashing of and subsequent apology to Brooke about her use of medication for her post-partum depression seem to have melted away.
Are playdates with Suri and Grier far behind? Stay tuned.
I can't believe "Where is Suri?" hasn't started up again. Cause, really, where is she?
Whilst the news outlets have focused on Buffalo-area storm damage up around Niagra Falls in recent weeks, a Hollywood film crew has had its lenses trained on the brink of the Horseshoe Falls - the biggest of the three waterfalls that make up Niagra Falls.
Now, Access Niagra reports that Walt Disney Studios is shooting falls-related scenes for use in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" scheduled for release in May.
The studio is not saying how the footage of the world-famous waterfall will be used, but there is speculation that moviegoers will see Captain Jack Sparrow and his shipmates facing oblivion courtesy of the giant cataract.
Stars Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley were nowhere in sight - expected to be added later to the footage used.

Just thought the Canadians might be interested...
But two weeks ago, they came to the opening night party for Ryan's performance in Clint Eastwood's "Flags of our Fathers." It was not a pretty scene. Reese was packing away cosmos and chatting happily with just about anyone, but it was clear she was peeved about something.
The party took place in the rooftop penthouse suites of the Soho Grand Hotel, and what I saw next was something I decided not to print at the time. The couple went out on the roof terrace and had a knock-down, drag-out fight. It looked like something from "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
My line of vision was partially blocked by a big exhaust pipe, so at different times during the fight they were obscured. But then Ryan would appear, disgusted, on one side of it, and Reese on the other.
Suddenly, Reese stormed back inside, crossed past me and headed for the elevator. Ryan followed in hot pursuit. Thus, their security guards assigned for the night went running after them, thinking that they were leaving.
After a couple of minutes, though, clearer heads prevailed. The couple came back from the elevator with security in tow. Perhaps they'd forgotten that many members of Ryan's family, including his grandmother, were still in the room, oblivious to what was going on.
All of this was alluded to in our Oct. 17 column. I referred to their marriage as "tempestuous," trying to err on the side of good manners. It was obvious from their heated exchanges that the couple was in trouble. But no one really knows what goes inside a marriage; maybe fighting was part of their deal.
In retrospect, however, Ryan and Reese already knew it was over when they came to the "Flags of Our Fathers" party. They had already committed to it, and Phillippe's family wanted some kind of celebration.
The sad thing is, they are both nice people. But they are also young; Ryan is 32, Reese just 30. They could never have calculated her stratospheric success.
But actresses tend to hit their stride early, with tougher times after 40. For men, it's the opposite. In five years, Ryan could be a perennial best actor nominee.
But the early 30s — with the exception of Leonardo DiCaprio, thanks to Titanic — is the hunker-down time for most young actors. They're too young for the good roles and too old for the teen ones.
I'm sure the tabs will be full of stories of infidelity. This column has already gotten calls about it. But I think, in the end, there are no villains for Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon. It was just too much too soon.
Yes, we know they split (THIS POST), but I have a feeling there will be many stories like this one, sadly...
I'm skeptical, of course, since Jessica Alba has been so annoyingly careful about keeping herself covered up, at least to the limits of decency. Catching her having sex in public would definitely be a departure from her usual style.
However, in some shots, it looks like Jessica's not even wearing her bikini bottoms (though that could just be wishful thinking). She does seem to be having a good time, though...
So, is Jessica Alba having sex in these pictures? We may never know. All I know is that's my new favourite position.

This is the first picture of the actress, Dakota Blue Richards (12 years old) cast to play Lyra.
New York, Oct 30: 'Desperate Housewives' actress Marcia Cross is reportedly taking the services of her lawyers to get her nude photographs back from Phoenix-based agent David Hans Schmidt.
Schmidt has gotten more than 200 personal photos of Cross, which include ones showing her taking a shower outdoors.
"There are some pictures of her showering outside. She looks absolutely gorgeous. And yes, the carpet does match the curtains," the New York Daily News quoted him as saying.

In support of Habitat for Humanity, Brad Pitt was clicked along with former President Jimmy Carter while building houses in the village of Lonwala. Voila!
Ever the humanitarian, Pitt visited the construction site of 100 homes, set to alleviate housing problems in the region. The stone cold hot dad even took time to lay a few bricks.

Posh said of her time in Paris: "I had so much fun with [Katie]. She is very tall though — I did feel like a bit of a midget."
But the love-fest may have come to a dramatic halt over a couple of petty disagreements between fashionista Vic, 32, and actress Katie, 27.
A close pal tells us Katie isn't best pleased after super-skinny Victoria suggested she shed a few more pounds before her big day. Posh, who has been plagued by rumours of eating disorders (which she strenuously denies), wants to help the actress get in tip-top shape for her nuptials.
We're told: "Victoria didn't mean any harm, she just wanted to help Katie look her best for her big day. She offered to share her diet secrets but Katie immediately got defensive, saying she didn't need any advice.
"Katie is really proud of the weight she's managed to lose since giving birth to Suri in April and she doesn’t think she has to lose any more."
Victoria also recommended Katie take her man to a barber's to get his floppy mop chopped before 18 November, when the couple will marry at a secret location.
The pal went on: "Vic pointed out that Katie will have to live with his hair in the wedding photos for the rest of her life. She recommended Katie ask Tom to get a new, fashionable haircut like David."

Ryan Phillippe's interview with Howard Stern from September 4, 2002
An oldie but goodie. Reese was so upset by this interview, she banned Ryan from talking to Howard ever again. The interview is 31mins long, 21MB download (sendspace). Juicy stuff between 3:30 and 13:15, 31 minutes total.
Points of interest:
- Ryan says he's proud of Reese's paycheck, "she's a chick making more than 99.9% of the men in Hollywood"
- There is no pre-nuptial agreement, so he will get half no matter what
- Ava's been sleeping in their bed every night and it's been driving Ryan nuts
- Howard: "I don't know how the hell you're going to stay married"
- Ryan goes to therapy for depression and also talks to his therapist about his career
- Didn't have sex until after 5 weeks after they met
- Reese isn't into threesomes
- Ryan has been hit on by gay casting directors
- Ryan said he would tell Ava when she's older that she was unplanned
After the good stuff, there's a lot of Howard and Ryan ranting on American Idol and Ryan defending Angelina Jolie, but w/e.

Kevin Federline, "Playing With Fire" (Federline Records)
All jokes aside about his climb to fame, Kevin Federline's album "Playing With Fire" is a credible, entertaining debut. I kid you not.
K-Fed knows the role. He's been hated, debated, and roundly derided for his marriage to Britney Spears. Thus, the detractors are unlikely to admit that this is nicely raw around the edges, probably some of the most sincere urban storytelling you'll hate to admit you like.
He takes on the topics closest to him; from his rise from Fresno County obscurity to a hip-hop stage dancer to a high-profile position on the arm of Spears.
Is it Fed's fault he's got so much hustle? Don't hate the hustler, hate the game.
Tracks like "Privilege" are spot-on smooth, with K-Fed rhyming about the life he's grown accustomed to — and the one he left behind. "I got Gucci on, she got Prada/ She calls me daddy but she's not my daughter/ And I'm not her father I'm just a mack/ Got tired of the drugs so I switched to rap."
The beats are primely polished, but tough enough to maintain an aggressive stance. On "Keep on Talkin'," K-Fed talks about "pancaking" back in the days, an allusion to riding the drug trade no doubt. The streets of Fresno County are no joke, and good for Fed-Rock if wants to boast about surviving that life.
And "Crazy" (featuring the wife) has one serious club banger beat. You just have to move to it. Resistance is futile.
Hats off to K-Fed. There's a lot here to like.
no, i didn't make this up
Will update with a HQ once it becomes available.
