Audience walks during 'Postal' screening

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


HOBOKEN -- About 200 people were present Friday night at the start of the free screening of Uwe Boll's "Postal" at Pier A Park, but three-quarters walked away long before the closing credits.

Mat Levy -- who had his 15 minutes of fame as "Cheezy" on season two of VH1's celebrity dating show "I Love New York" -- was one of those who found the movie in bad taste.

The last straw for Levy was a scene in which two terrorists hijack a plane in a 9/11-style attack, but then decide to abandon the suicide mission and fly to the Bahamas instead -- only to wind up crashing into a building after the passengers storm the cockpit.

Mayor David Roberts, citing the same scene, refused to attend Friday night's premiere.

"I did not like Uwe Boll's perception of 9/11," Levy said. "It's too soon to mock a plane going into the World Trade Center. Do you not think there are families out there that had their loved ones killed on 9/11? It really upsets me that he couldn't care less.''

Country sensation Tim McGraw surprised a 9-year-old-fan during an Oklahoma City concert with the opportunity of a lifetime – a duet with his idol.

"My son Luke has been a fan since he was 3 years old and always has said that he was going to sing with Tim McGraw someday," the mother of Luke Wood, Kendra Wood, who brought her son to the concert Friday night to celebrate his birthday, told PEOPLE.

"He made a simple sign, 'Can I sing with you?' And brought it with us. I was completely shocked when Tim started singing 'Last Dollar (Fly Away)' and motioned for him to come forward. Before I knew it he was whisked onstage, Tim handed him a mic and began singing with Luke," she explained.

The crowd "went wild," as the proud mom whipped out her camera phone. Laughed wood, "I have NO idea how I am going to top this birthday present!"

Celebrating 25 years of… TOM CRUISE!




YEAHHH ROCK ON!!! TOM CRUISE HAS BEEN FAMOUS FOR 25 YEARS EVERYONE!!!

And he’s taken www.tomcruise.com to a new level, and graced us with a montage of him at his BEST - because really Tom Cruise IS ALWAYS THE BEST - in all of his movies… And there’s apparently a personal message from Tom, to you, at the end… but it was slowing down my computer so I didn’t watch the whole thing. I guess Tom is trying to remind people of why they liked him, because at this point he’s turned a LOT of fans off…

New '90210' to film at Old School


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

THE new version of "90210" will look familiar to fans of the original shows for at least one reason - it's being filmed at the same high school.

The new show - which begins filming next week - will be shot at Torrance High School, the same place the first show was shot, according the officials.

Torrance High, with its SpanIsh-style architecture, served as the fictitious West Beverly High in "Beverly Hills 90210" and as Sunnydale High, the alma mater of Buffy Summers in the series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."

taylor swift prepares for one heck of a hand cramp...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Taylor Swift has a busy day ahead of her on Saturday, June 7: She plans to spend a full six hours, beginning at 10 a.m., signing autographs and taking photos with fans at the exhibit hall in the Nashville Convention Center during the annual CMA Music Festival.

Taylor’s commitment doesn’t quite rival Garth Brooks’ legendary 1996 stretch, when he wrote out his signature for 23 hours straight, but it’s still a hefty donation of time by one of the most in-demand performers on the current country landscape.

Part of her commitment comes from remembering what it was like when she was mostly overlooked.

"I came to CMA Music Fest three years ago and nobody knew who I was," she told Dial-Global. "That first year, when people would come up to me and ask for my autograph, it felt so good, and I was so excited. That was a big deal to me."

Fast-forward to 2008 and you can bet Taylor will draw quite a crowd — perhaps large enough that she’ll have difficulty accommodating every single person.

"It’s been drastic to deal with the numbers of fans who want an autograph now, but I tell myself not to ever let it become a burden," she said. "Fans are the only reason why I’m here. I have zero record sales without them. I have zero songs on the radio without them. Without the fans I’m nothing, so why not give back?"

Taylor has plenty on her schedule before and after her day of autographs. On Thursday, she joins Gretchen Wilson and Randy Travis at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium for the CMA Celebrity Close Up series, taking questions from fans in a session that will be shot for a GAC special. That evening, she’ll perform at LP Field on a bill that also includes Sugarland, Montgomery Gentry, Jewel, Kellie Pickler, Luke Bryan and Jennifer Hanson.

On Monday, June 9, she’ll guest on NBC’s two-hour season premiere of "Nashville Star." Hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus, the talent competition’s panel of judges includes John Rich, Jewel and "What Hurts The Most" songwriter Jeffrey Steele.

Mary-Kate Olsen spent her afternoon getting a manicure and a pedicure at a nail salon in Beverly Hills. I really like the casual white dress she’s wearing, it’s perfect for a sunny summer day. Ashley Olsen was spotted later the same day at the same salon! My guess is that the girls are gearing up for the CFDA Fashion Awards tomorrow!

K104 FEST 08: ft. Blake Lewis, Pitbull, and others

So, every year my local radio station (WSPK Poughkeepsie, NY) has a big summer concert that is usually full of fail. However, they happened to have a semi-decent lineup this year, and because I'm interning for the station this summer I (conveniently) got to go. I took some pictures while I was there working all day, so some of them are pretty close, but others are farther away.


Line up: Metro Station, Enur, Ray J, Sum 41 (they were such assholes), Pitbull, Cherish, Blake Lewis, Wyclef Jean, Chris Willis, David Guetta, and Sean Kingston.
(the ones in bold are the people I got pictures of)

The Shat in Parade Magazine

In Step With...William Shatner


Maybe you remember him as Capt. James T. Kirk on Star Trek or currently watch him as the outrageous lawyer Denny Crane on Boston Legal. But until you read his recently published memoir, Up Till Now, you’ve really just scratched the surface of William Shatner.

It’s all in there, including the fights with Star Trek cast members, the four marriages, his third wife’s drowning and the subsequent painful inquiry by police, the professional triumphs, and the personal tragedies.

I wondered aloud if the book would offend Leonard Nimoy (Spock), his former Trek co-star, whom Shatner describes as an alcoholic—sober on the set but stewed when off.

“No,” said Shatner. “He and I discuss it often, and Leonard’s become a motivational speaker about the problem.” Of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, William said flatly, “He was a chiseler who wanted a cut of outside money his cast earned, demanded to be called ‘master,’ and prohibited poor Nimoy from using a company pencil.”


Shatner and I spoke during his lunch break from shooting one of Boston Legal’s final episodes of the season. The successful series is currently in its fourth year, with no signs of stopping, and Shatner’s Crane remains quirky.

In real life, William has an edge. He admitted that when he and Legal lead actor James Spader first met, it was chilly. Spader called him Bill, and Shatner said, “Is it James, or can I call you Jimmy?” “No,” Spader coldly responded. “It’s James.”

Today, Shatner adds, “Him, I don’t love. But certainly I like him and respect him.”
Shatner himself is respected by his fans and peers, even if they were slow to reward the actor for his many contributions. When William won an Emmy in 2005 for his Boston Legal work, he demanded of the applauding audience, “What took you so long?”

The poor kid from Montreal had made it, or as Shatner more gracefully put it to me, “Fate has dealt with me so kindly.”

Bryce Dallas Howard to join new Terminator?



Bryce Dallas Howard is in negotiations to replace Charlotte Gainsbourg in "Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins."

Gainsbourg was originally set to play Kate Connor, the wife of human resistance hero John Connor, played by Christian Bale. The actress had to bow out because of scheduling conflicts with another film, a French comedy. Production on "Terminator," directed by McG, is already underway in New Mexico. If an actors strike were to happen, shooting would stop and then restart at a later date, potentially butting heads with the French film.

Cameron Diaz and Diddy......A New Couple?!?!?

Careful opening that door! Cameron Diaz and Diddy could be behind it.

The actress and the hip-hop/fashion mogul certainly have become cozy - and fond of playing hide and seek.

Back in March, they had dinner in L.A., and, for some reason, felt it necessary to leave separately through the restaurant's kitchen. Last month, they were looking very affectionate in SoHo's Sub-Mercer lounge. According to witnesses, the pair disappeared into a private room for about 20 minutes while a guard stood outside the door.

Diaz had a big hug for Mr. Combs at the Beverly Hills party he threw last month to celebrate his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. More telling was their intimacy at Prince's house last Friday.

Sly Stallone, John Legend, Eddie Murphy, Babyface and other guests were riveted by the 2 1/2-hour backyard concert the funkster gave to launch his book, "21 Days." But Diaz and Diddy seemed only to have eyes for each other.

During the show, they laughed and held hands. At one point, while Diddy sipped a Grey Goose, Cameron told him he "must" try her bread pudding, which she proceeded to spoon-feed him. After some whispering, Diddy nodded toward Prince's mansion.

Once inside, he led Diaz by the hand through its labyrinthine corridors to Prince's basement. That's where we came upon the entranced twosome standing in the theater's doorway. Diddy was bringing his lips toward hers when he realized someone was approaching. Smiling, they closed the theater's door and locked it. We heard them giggling inside.

Diddy said he and Diaz did not go into a private room at the Sub-Mercer, adding, "It is ridiculous that two celebrities of the opposite sex can't just hang out with a group of friends without it being reported as more than that. We are just friends.”

Diaz's rep had no immediate comment, but the actress recently told InStyle that she loved dating again after her breakup with Justin Timberlake, "Men are the best!" she proclaimed. "Sex is the best!" Diddy - whose mantra is "Preserve the sexy!" - couldn't argue with that.

Hey, with Clooney back on the market and now possibly Ryan, my week is looking up!

Sir Paul McCartney loves bringing his family together over food

“Oh most wonderful father,” intones Sir Paul McCartney, his hands clasped in front of him like a Victorian patriarch delivering grace.

“Almost wonderful father,” his daughter Mary sings back.

“Who we really revere…”

“Who we really fear…”

“Who really makes us tick…”

“Who really makes us sick…”

Thirty years on, it’s a rare glimpse into the private world of Paul McCartney, a playful two-hander that he and his late wife Linda shared with the children before meals at their Peasmarsh estate in Sussex, or on the family farm in Scotland.

Naomi is going bald

Naomi Campbell is going bald, a friend says.

The fiesty supermodel, 38, started losing her hair 15 years ago, fashion photographer Huggy Ragnarsson told Britain's The Sun newspaper. And her flowing locks are to blame.

Campbell's tresses began falling out after years of having hair extensions, Ragnarsson says. She was reportedly warned about the risks, but chose to ignore them.

The model, who was charged last week for alleged assault on an airline, appeared to have a receeding hairline as she left a London police station on May 29.

"That’s been happening for a while," Ragnarsson said. "The hair stylist Sam McKnight said to me in the '90s, 'She'd better be careful with those weaves, she's going to lose her hair.'"

More of Angelina in "Vanity Fair"

Angelina Jolie Wigs Out in Green



New pictures of Angelina Jolie from the July 2008 issue of Vanity Fair have surfaced. 

The photos were taken Jan. 31, before everybody’s favorite humanitarian, mother, and sex goddess publicly announced that she was expecting twins in August. Here are some new quotes from her interview, where she lets us inside her celebrity bubble:

On why they named their daughter Shiloh: “It’s a biblical name,” she told me, “but we didn’t name her for that. It was a name my parents almost named their first child—there was a miscarriage: Shiloh Baptist. Because my father had been shooting in Georgia and that was the most southern name [my parents] could come up with. It’s a name I always liked. I used to go under it in hotels: Shiloh Baptist. I’d gone under it when [Brad] called hotel rooms where I was staying.”

On how she plans on raising her kids religion-wise: “[My mother] was Catholic but also a child of the 60s. She stopped going to confession at one point because she was having sex before marriage. To me, she represented what religion should be. She never preached. If things didn’t make sense to her, she never just accepted it. I had Communion, but she never forced me to go to church. Brad got me this great thing for Christmas. It’s a bookshelf that has a book on every religion. That’s how we plan to raise our kids. Teach them about all religions. They can pick one or be a student of all of them. We’ll celebrate Kwanzaa for our girl. We’ll celebrate moon and water festivals for our boys. We’ll take them to temples in certain countries. Also to church.”

On Brad Pitt coming into her life unexpectedly: “After my last divorce, I said I was absolutely going to marry somebody in another field, an aid worker or something. Then I met Brad, everything I wasn’t looking for, but the best man, the best father I could possibly wish for, you know? I don’t see him as an actor. I see him very much as a dad, as somebody who loves travel and architecture more than being in movies."

On her father Jon Voight and his film Coming Home, which he won the best-actor Oscar in 1979: “Actually. I’ve never seen Coming Home. Because that was when my father left my mom, and the woman who he cheated on her with is in the film.” (When rumors surfaced about Jolie and Pitt, who was then married to Aniston, Jolie denied them, saying, in essence, Look, this is what happened to my mother, so I could never do it to another woman.)

I was really proud of my parents because they didn't know what Family Feud was. The only thing they have that is similar in Korea was the war. They did remarkably well and my dad even razzed host Al Roker a little. It was awesome. We did just as good as any white family would have!

Seth Rogen "Not Going to Answer" if Pot Was Real at MTV Movie Awards

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Who got the biggest buzz at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards?

Pineapple Express stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, who said they were smoking "fake weed" as they presented the award for "best summer movie so far."

They joked that MTV chose them because only "two potheads like us" would be willing to announce such a weird category.

As they pulled out a "huge fatty joint" and lit it, cameras pulled to a wide angle and stayed that way until the two left the stage.

New York's Daily News wrote that the "sweet scent wafting through the Gibson Amphitheatre suggested the herb was real." Added Robert Downey Jr. (whose film Iron Man won): "Thanks for that intoxicating introduction."

Rogen refused to reveal if the pot were real.

"I'm not going to answer that question," he told the Daily News.

Asked what was in the bag, Franco told the Associated Press, "I don't know! MTV gave it to us."

He said MTV asked them to do the joke, even providing them with the script and fake weed.

Before they went on, he said, "backstage there was this big commotion: 'You guys can't [do] that.'"

(MTV has refused to comment.)

Franco said he was disappointed that the cameras went wide.

Said the actor, "I think they killed the joke."

Duffy - Paper Mag interview

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
"I'm obsessed with vintage!" Welsh singer Duffy says enthusiastically. "I love to go out and buy a stinking 1940s shirt that's so smelly I can never really wear it, but for some reason it gives me amazing pleasure to know that there's something I own that's 60 years old. It's weird."

In fact, to hear the blond chanteuse say such a thing is not weird at all. From her black-and-white video clip for "Rockferry" featuring her heavily-lined lids and blond bouffant, combined with her earthy Dusty Springfield-esque vocals, the native Welsh-language speaker's preoccupation with all things retro is apparent and has been a part of who she is ever since she was a youngster, according to her charming anecdotes about growing up in small-town Wales.

"I've always been old-fashioned. When I was younger my mum gave me and my sister a fiver each, which was almost as much money as I got for every birthday," she says. "We went 'round Pwllheli, a small town in North Wales, and my sister was in the arcade gambling with her mate, and mum saw them there and walked down the street and looked into this coffee shop and I was sat there with a cashmere cardigan on, in July, with a cup of tea and a scone. I was six years old. She knocked on the window and pointed [at] me as if to say, 'What the hell are you doing?' and I waved, and had cream all over my face. Apparently, I've always been opinionated. I like to do my own thing. I was more into having a scone and a cup of tea at the age of six than gambling and getting wet at the funfair. It's always just the way I've been."

Once named as one of the so-called 'New Amys' (after Amy Winehouse), Duffy's managed to forge her own path, her soulful Sandie Shaw and Lulu-influenced sound being lauded by the likes of BBC TV's Jools Holland, who has had her perform on his Later show no fewer than three times since November 2007. Now with the release of her debut album Rockferry in the U.S., Duffy's set to become as well-known as Winehouse, albeit likely without the tabloid tales.

30 upcoming movie sequels you didnt know about

The Brazilian Job: the follow up to Paramount’s US remake of The Italian Job is still on the cards, and it’s got a 2009 release date marked. Jason Statham, Mos Def, Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron are attached, as is director F Gary Gray.

I, Robot 2: All we know on this one is that it’s in the scripting stages still, with a potential 2010 release date planned in. No news on Mr Smith's involvement.

I Am Legend 2:
Warner’s huge Christmas 2007 hit could also have a follow up, although it’d be interesting to see if Will Smith returned to it. A 2010 release date is also being mooted for this one.

Beverly Hills Cop 4: If Die Hard can still do it at the box office, why can’t Axel Foley? Er, because the third BHC movie was crap, and a flop. Still, it’s not stopped development work going ahead on number four. No further news than that, though.

National Treasure 3:
Not a huge surprise, but as the Nic Cage Indiana Jones knock off franchise has proved to be quite a juggernaut, you’ll only have to wait until 2011 for the third film in the series.

Cars 2: We spotted this on AintItCool – is Pixar really looking to make a sequel to its weakest film? Apparently so…

Toy Story 3: This one, after lots of umming and ahhing, appears to be a goer. It won’t, as was speculated, be a straight-to-DVD affair, and Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are both expected back on voicing duties. It’ll be out in 2010.

Brittany Murphy Back Off The Pixie Dust

Two years after Disney executives nudged Brittany Murphy before a roomful of gathered press, then detonated a confetti-filled landmine which left one Reuters photographer legless from the knees down, comes news that the once white-hot Hollywood Was-Girl has been replaced by Disney animation head John Lasseter as the voice of Tinker Bell in that sprite's direct-to-video adventures. Explains hollywood-newsroom.com:

[The original] Tinker Bell was a disaster. The story didn’t work, too many fart jokes and lesbian innuendos. The CGI was subpar. Most importantly, Tinker Bell herself. The animation and Brit’s vocal work lacked the magic Lasseter expected with this iconic Disney character.

Then, Lasseter himself flushed everything regarding Tinker Bell, $120 million, down the toilet. And Tinker Bell went dark. [...]

[On May 29th,] Disney sent out the below press release, announcing that the new NEW voice of Tinker Bell would be…. Mae Whitman! The 19 year old actress, best known for her voice work on Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Jungle Book 2, Johnny Bravo and Superman. She was also the President’s daughter in Independence Day.

Lest you worry about where that leaves Murphy, the actress will continue to breathe new vocal life weekly into King of the Hill's sexually overstimulated Luanna Platter, while reprising her efforts as Shellie the Abused Barmaid in Sin City 2. Still, after all the multicolored fanfare, we feel somewhat robbed of a Murphy-interpreted Tinker Bell, forever nodding off in some Neverland knothole between bouts of involuntary flatulism and hot faerie-on-faerie action.

Rock pioneer Bo Diddley dies at age 79

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Bo Diddley, a founding father of rock 'n' roll whose distinctive "shave and a haircut, two bits" rhythm and innovative guitar effects inspired legions of other musicians, died Monday after months of ill health. He was 79.

Diddley died of heart failure at his home in Archer, Fla., spokeswoman Susan Clary said. He had suffered a heart attack in August, three months after suffering a stroke while touring in Iowa. Doctors said the stroke affected his ability to speak, and he had returned to Florida to continue rehabilitation.

The legendary singer and performer, known for his homemade square guitar, dark glasses and black hat, was an inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, had a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, and received a lifetime achievement award in 1999 at the Grammy Awards. In recent years he also played for the elder President Bush and President Clinton.

Diddley appreciated the honors he received, "but it didn't put no figures in my checkbook."

"If you ain't got no money, ain't nobody calls you honey," he quipped.

The name Bo Diddley came from other youngsters when he was growing up in Chicago, he said in a 1999 interview.

"I don't know where the kids got it, but the kids in grammar school gave me that name," he said, adding that he liked it so it became his stage name. Other times, he gave somewhat differing stories on where he got the name. Some experts believe a possible source for the name is a one-string instrument used in traditional blues music called a diddley bow.

His first single, "Bo Diddley," introduced record buyers in 1955 to his signature rhythm: bomp ba-bomp bomp, bomp bomp, often summarized as "shave and a haircut, two bits." The B side, "I'm a Man," with its slightly humorous take on macho pride, also became a rock standard.

The company that issued his early songs was Chess-Checkers records, the storied Chicago-based labels that also recorded Chuck Berry and other stars.

Howard Kramer, assistant curator of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, said in 2006 that Diddley's Chess recordings "stand among the best singular recordings of the 20th century."

Diddley's other major songs included, "Say Man," "You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover," "Shave and a Haircut," "Uncle John," "Who Do You Love?" and "The Mule."

Diddley's influence was felt on both sides of the Atlantic. Buddy Holly borrowed the bomp ba-bomp bomp, bomp bomp rhythm for his song "Not Fade Away."

The Rolling Stones' bluesy remake of that Holly song gave them their first chart single in the United States, in 1964. The following year, another British band, the Yardbirds, had a Top 20 hit in the U.S. with their version of "I'm a Man."

Diddley was also one of the pioneers of the electric guitar, adding reverb and tremelo effects. He even rigged some of his guitars himself.

"He treats it like it was a drum, very rhythmic," E. Michael Harrington, professor of music theory and composition at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., said in 2006.

Many other artists, including the Who, Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello copied aspects of Diddley's style.

Growing up, Diddley said he had no musical idols, and he wasn't entirely pleased that others drew on his innovations.

"I don't like to copy anybody. Everybody tries to do what I do, update it," he said. "I don't have any idols I copied after."

"They copied everything I did, upgraded it, messed it up. It seems to me that nobody can come up with their own thing, they have to put a little bit of Bo Diddley there," he said.

Despite his success, Diddley claimed he only received a small portion of the money he made during his career. Partly as a result, he continued to tour and record music until his stroke. Between tours, he made his home near Gainesville in north Florida.

"Seventy ain't nothing but a damn number," he told The Associated Press in 1999. "I'm writing and creating new stuff and putting together new different things. Trying to stay out there and roll with the punches. I ain't quit yet."

Diddley, like other artists of his generations, was paid a flat fee for his recordings and said he received no royalty payments on record sales. He also said he was never paid for many of his performances.

"I am owed. I've never got paid," he said. "A dude with a pencil is worse than a cat with a machine gun."

In the early 1950s, Diddley said, disc jockeys called his type of music, "Jungle Music." It was Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed who is credited with inventing the term "rock 'n' roll."

Diddley said Freed was talking about him, when he introduced him, saying, "Here is a man with an original sound, who is going to rock and roll you right out of your seat."

Diddley won attention from a new generation in 1989 when he took part in the "Bo Knows" ad campaign for Nike, built around football and baseball star Bo Jackson. Commenting on Jackson's guitar skills, Diddley turned to the camera and said, "He don't know Diddley."

"I never could figure out what it had to do with shoes, but it worked," Diddley said. "I got into a lot of new front rooms on the tube."

Born as Ellas Bates on Dec. 30, 1928, in McComb, Miss., Diddley was later adopted by his mother's cousin and took on the name Ellis McDaniel, which his wife always called him.

When he was 5, his family moved to Chicago, where he learned the violin at the Ebenezer Baptist Church. He learned guitar at 10 and entertained passers-by on street corners.

By his early teens, Diddley was playing Chicago's Maxwell Street.

"I came out of school and made something out of myself. I am known all over the globe, all over the world. There are guys who have done a lot of things that don't have the same impact that I had," he said.

Neil Young feels driven to work on electric car

Neil Young, the rocker who provided some of the soundtrack to Vietnam-era protests, is trying to change the world again — with his car.

Young has teamed up with Johnathan Goodwin, a Wichita mechanic who has developed a national reputation for re-engineering the power units of big cars to get more horsepower but use less fuel.

The two are looking to convert Young's 1959 Lincoln Continental convertible to operate on an electric battery. Ultimately, they said, they want the Continental to provide a model for the world's first affordable mass-produced electric-powered automobile.

"Johnathan and this car are going to make history," Young told The Wichita Eagle. "We're going to change the world; we're going to create a car that will allow us to stop giving our wealth to other countries for petroleum."

Young has poured about $120,000 so far into the project, Goodwin said.

What's more, the prototype power system worked during a 12-mile test drive of the car last week — albeit with a few glitches.

"She was awesome," Young said of the battery-operated car. "Her acceleration was incredible, she moved with hardly a sound; it was so quiet we could hear the wind through the tags of other cars."

The drive almost ended in disaster when Goodwin, who controls acceleration with a knob in the back seat, twisted it the wrong way while approaching an entrance ramp and the vehicle lurched toward the rear of another car. Young, in the passenger seat, was able to hit the brakes in time.

"Still needs work," said Goodwin, 37.

Young, 62, said he came across taped interviews of Goodwin eight months ago on the Internet, including a segment for the MTV show "Pimp My Ride." Goodwin's clientele includes California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who had Goodwin work on his Hummer.

Young said he set out wanting his car to be able to use biodiesel, but later asked Goodwin whether they could instead power it with batteries and use it as a template to make electric cars more mainstream.

"The technology to make a practical and affordable electric car has been around for a long time," Goodwin said. "There are all sorts of ways of doing it and all sorts of ways to work out how to make it work on a national scale."

For Young, the project may finally complete a mission he set for himself with his music.

"You know, I thought long ago you could change the world by writing songs," he said. "But you can't change the world by writing songs. Oh, you can inspire a few people, get some of them to change their thinking about something. But you can't change the world by writing songs.

"But we could change it with this car."

My bb Tilda's relationship Venn Diagram (Your Monthly Tilda Post)

THE partner of Oscar winner Tilda Swinton has told how he is seeing another woman - with his wife's approval.

Michael Clayton star Tilda "shares" writer John Byrne with Jeanine Davies - and the trio have even met at the celebrity couple's home

John's revelation is the latest twist to his bizarre relationship with Tilda, 47, who openly travels the world her toyboy lover, German painter Sandro Kopp, 29.

She and John still live happily with their 10-year-old twins in Nairn.

John, 68, the man behind Your Cheatin' Heart and Tutti Frutti, told us of his two-year relationship with theatre lighting director Jeanine, 42.

The writer said: "I can say that Jeanine and I have been in a relationship for almost the past two years.

"We have not hidden away and Jeanine is very much part of my life.

"Tilda knows all about it and is more than happy with the situation. It's all very relaxed and very amicable. She has Sandro and the arrangement works very well."

'Jeanine and I are in love...Tilda and I have certainly not split up.We are still together.There is so much love there. But it is not an open relationship - that would imply we both had lots of partners which is certainly not the case'

Honestly, I think Sandro is a significant upgrade for Tilda and respect her desire to stay together with the father of her kids, even if it is a non-traditional arrangement.

Ben Barnes is searchin' for a real love

Ben wants a normal girl



Ben Barnes, the British star of upcoming film Prince Caspian, hopes that his burgeoning movie career will kick start his love life.

"I'm single right now and I have a movie out," he told reporters outside the MTV Movie Awards. "I don't know if that will help."

The actor, who stars in the second instalment of the Chronicles of Narnia series says he is looking for a "normal" girl to date.

"Somebody who's fun and normal," he said. "There's a lot of fun people round here [Hollywood] but not so many normal ones."

Prince Caspian has already been released in the US, but Ben hasn't been besieged by fans as yet.

"I haven't really been here," he confessed. "I've been off in Japan and Taiwan and Australia. There's still a couple of weeks until it come out in England."

Ben was attending the awards to support the Narnia film, which was nominated for Best Summer Movie so far, but he wasn't too confident about its chances.

"It's in the biggest category with Indiana Jones and Iron Man," he said.

la times on supporting hills cast members

Former cast members of 'The Hills' complain of bad editing, sudden exits.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
After the MTV series moves on without Elodie Otto, Jessica Trent and Gavin Beasley, what next? They try to work it out.

PEOPLE'S REVOLUTION has a reputation for being one of the toughest fashion public relations firms in the business. It's been called a madhouse -- a pressure cooker where 18-hour days are common and the mission is as uncompromising as the founder and chief executive, Kelly Cutrone: maximum exposure, whatever the cost.

So when its West Coast director, Jessica Trent, and a few underlings gathered to discuss the Pussycat Dolls lingerie show at L.A. Fashion Week in March, Cutrone put their feet to the fire. She wanted to know whether any celebrities had committed.

"Working on that," Trent said.
"It's a little late," Cutrone snapped.
"I know we were . . . "
"We . . . we . . . nothing."
"That was supposed to be your responsibility, Jessica," sniped Cutrone's partner.

Trent was nearly in tears, and then the camera cut -- to a sweeping panorama of Los Angeles.

It was just another painful day on "The Hills," the docudrama everyone loves to hate. Its stars -- Lauren Conrad, Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port -- relentlessly pursue the perfect blend of work and partying, largely in the confines of the L.A. fashion community, be it People's Revolution or the offices of Teen Vogue. Woe betide anyone outside their circle.

While Conrad and her cronies have happily morphed from SoCal teens to paparazzi-hunted celebrities with cosmetic contracts, clothing lines and movie deals, other minor players have become roadkill on the highway of public spectacle. Sure, the star foursome graced the cover of Rolling Stone last month, but a growing sorority of "Hills" outcasts was loudly grumbling.

Freema Agyeman to star in Survivors re-make

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Just weeks before the Daleks are scheduled to return to the BBC to wrap up the current season of Doctor Who, another sci-fi series conceived by their creator is returning to TV.

Terry Nation's Survivors originally ran from 1975 to 1977 while Nation was still writing the occasional Dalek script for Doctor Who. Set in the present day, the sci-fi drama was a predecessor to post-apocalyptic shows like Jericho. The program's titular characters lived in the aftermath of a devastating virus that wiped out their friends, families and most of the world's population.

The new series will run along those same lines and will include Doctor Who's Freema Agyeman (Martha Jones). Along with Torchwood, Survivors will be Ageyman's second sci-fi series roll since leaving full-time duty on Who.

It'll be a busy viewing season for the Terry Nation estate as another one of his sci-fi creations, Blake's 7, is also set to return to TV next season.

The Paper's Amanda Lorber Begins Journalism Career With Bitchy Email

From Gawker:


Um, dag. We knew we liked Amanda Lorber, the go-get-'em star of MTV's bittersweet study of a high school newspaper The Paper, but we didn't know we liked her this much. Recently some uppity so-and-so (from a fuckin' Columbia newspaper, natch) wrote a nasty article on Lorber, calling her "overbearing and annoying" and citing her "crippling self-consciousness and a terminally unfulfilled desire to be liked." Lorber saw this as an unfair and unqualified attack, and responded with an acid-tongued, well-worded email. And it's awesome!


To the piece's author, Alexandria Symonds, she wrote:
    You, Ms. Symonds, are obviously a fundamentally bitter woman. You degrade the work ethic and academic values of a 17-year-old in order to cure your self-consciousness and upset at perhaps never being recognized for your work when you're through with "The Specator." In fact, if my staff hadn't been excitedly 'googling' every article written about our (national television) show, I would never had come across your disgusting piece.


Hah! And:

A cast of 'pioneers' to invade Belltel Lofts for 'The Real World: Brooklyn'

The young and beautiful cast of next season's "Real World" will live the suite life in a $6 million, two-story penthouse perched high above downtown Brooklyn.

The art deco-era Belltel Lofts on Bridge St. was named Sunday as the site of the MTV reality show's 21st season after weeks of frantic speculation.

"We're excited," said David Bistricer, owner of the 27-story building that once held a telephone company but was converted to condos last year.

"It is what it is. It's the 'Real World.'"

The 6,000-square-foot, two-story penthouse includes two terraces, five bedrooms and 10-foot windows. A Jacuzzi and other amenities are also on the way, said Bistricer, whose building beat out 24 other Brooklyn digs for the starring role on the show.

Britains Got Talent Winner 2008's family woes


GEORGE'S FAMILY ANGUISH - AMAZING LOOK INTO EARLY LIVES OF THE BRITAIN'S GO TALENT CHILD STARS - Tug of love for breakdance lad

Britain's Got Talent dancing sensation George Sampson is at the centre of a heart-breaking tug-oflove battle between his warring parents.

The 14-year-old's world was torn apart five years ago when his mum Lesley, 39, and dad Brian, 40, separated after a series of bust-ups. According to his mum's side of the family, George has not spoken to his dad for two years.

But The People can reveal the talented breakdancer has paid a secret visit to Brian - in the hope that he will one day get his parents back together.

And last night, after battling it out in the ITV1 show's gripping live final, George begged his mum and dad: "After all I've achieved, please get back together - I love you both."

Brian angrily hit back yesterday at claims that he has done nothing to support his son, who dances on the streets to raise money for dancing lessons.

WWE chairman promotes `Raw' with $1M giveaway

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Wrestling fans eager to get their hands on Vince McMahon's money will have to jump through a few hoops first.

The World Wrestling Entertainment chairman announced during last week's "Monday Night Raw" that he would give away $1 million of his own wealth to viewers, but he didn't specify when or how it would be distributed.

The cash will be given away as part of a lengthy promotional sweepstakes, McMahon and the WWE told The Associated Press.

For a chance to win a part — but not all — of the $1 million, viewers must pre-register on WWE.com and then watch the beginning of "Raw" each week to receive a special code, which viewers must tell McMahon if he calls them during the live broadcast.

The code will change each week of the promotion and will not be revealed until the beginning of each episode.

"People can view this as my own version of an economic stimulus plan to benefit our viewers," McMahon told The Associated Press.

While the USA Network series continues to be one of the most watched shows on cable TV, its ratings have recently declined. Last Monday's episode received the lowest ratings in five years, according to Nielsen Media Research.

McMahon said his goal with the giveaway, which begins June 9, is to reward loyal "Raw" fans and draw new and former viewers back to the show.

Flight Of The Conchords Preview New Stuff in LA

Flight Of The Conchords preview new material in LA



New Zealand comedy duo win over a sold-out crowd

flight

Flight Of The Conchords won over a packed house at Los Angeles Orpheum Theatre Friday night (May 30), where they gave the first of two sold-out shows at the historic downtown venue.

The New Zealand musical-comedy duo performed for nearly two hours, interspersing crowd-pleasing favourites including 'The Most Beautiful Girl (In The Room)' and 'Mutha'uckas' with clever banter throughout the evening.

"This song is so new we don't even know it yet," Jemaine Clement said when introducing a new number about "getting freaky".

"It's like cookie dough -- it's not quite finished but it still tastes great," Bret McKenzie added.

The band previewed a handful of new tracks, including one about Jemaine's ex-girlfriends forming a scathing choir, which featured Bret's college friend on back-up vocals.

Tickets for the sold-out gigs were reportedly being touted online for $400 each. The duo have garnered a massive US fan-base in recent months due in large part to their popular self-titled HBO television series.

The band kept the show lo-fi, playing most of the songs with nothing more than two guitars and a Yamaha key-tar.

After concluding with 'Business Time', the pair returned for two encores, including 'Bowie' and ending with a new track about angels "doing it" in the clouds. "Jesus is our drummer on this one," Jemaine quipped before launching into the groovy, upbeat number.

The $15 Million Twins

Brangy Baby Pics Will Fetch Fortune



The bidding for the Brangelina twins pics has reached a whopping $15 million -- and will probably go a lot higher.

Our magazine spies tell us only PEOPLE and OK! are left standing in the bidding war. One spy says the pics are so valuable they would "print blank pages" the rest of year to get them.

Can a weekly mag actually recoup all that cash? Probably not, but it doesn't matter. The prestige is what counts.

No deal has been inked yet. Brad's peeps didn't return our calls. A PEOPLE rep says, "We'd love to see the photos in PEOPLE. We wish the family well" OK!'s rep refused to address a dollar figure, but admits they'd be "foolish" not to make a play for the photos.

We're told the $$$$ Brad and Angie get will go to charity.

CRAZY!!

Pink Floyd shunned by Glastonbury

Wish you were there, Floyd


Pink Floyd

PICTURE the scene – a sweltering midsummer night in Somerset.

One hundred thousand smiling punters gripped by communal euphoria as Dark Side Of The Moon, one of the greatest British albums ever, is performed by one of its creators during a headline slot on the Pyramid stage.

Sounds like the recipe for a pretty perfect Glastonbury moment, doesn’t it?

Well, not if you’re organiser MICHAEL EAVIS, it doesn’t.

The dairy farmer has nixed the chance of that happening later this month after rejecting an offer from PINK FLOYD frontman DAVID GILMOUR to play at the bash.

It truly beggars belief.

The silver-haired prog lord personally contacted the Glasto kingpin to offer his services for the event from June 27 to 29 only to be told he was surplus to requirements.

No disrespect to THE VERVE, but their classy Britrock is no match for the might of the Floyd. KINGS OF LEON’s muddy swamp blues doesn’t even come close.

And JAY-Z’s hip hop couldn’t hope to replicate the awesome atmosphere of hearing Wish You Were Here pumped out across a field late at night at a deafening volume either.

It’s a titanic mistake from Eavis.

My spy tells me: “Dave has always had a soft spot for Glastonbury. He’s got a window in his touring plans and thought he’d contact Michael about performing.

“And while Michael was grateful for the offer he turned it down. He wants the event to appeal to a younger generation and feels that Dave wouldn’t.”

Eavis is attempting to get a new generation interested in Glastonbury.

But his scheme has backfired. This year’s lineup has led to the fest not selling out, something unthinkable over the event’s recent history.

He’s dangerously out of touch with a public – youngsters and all – who would have delighted in some Floyd action.

The prog pioneers were scheduled to play the very first Glastonbury Fayre in 1970 but missed their slot because they couldn’t get their kit on to the Pyramid stage.

Gilmour’s Floyd bandmate ROGER WATERS returned to the scene in 2002 and was warmly received.

He had walked away from the rockers in the early Eighties after the release of another of their landmark records – The Wall.

The pair were then involved in a bitter legal battle for years over who had the right to use the band’s name as the original members continued touring and recording without him into the mid-Nineties.

The multi-million-selling outfit regrouped for the first time in 24 years when they played Live 8 in 2005.

Michael, it’s not too late to reconsider.

tori amos leaves epic records

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tori Amos has ended her tenure with Epic Records and "has chosen the path of independence for her next work," according to her manager.

"As with many of her contemporaries, Tori is devising new and exciting ways of getting her music to the masses without the boundaries and limitations of the major music companies," manager John Witherspoon tells Billboard's Ask Billboard column.

Amos' next album, due in spring 2009, will be "a project of new music and visuals which is being started in the summer," he says.

Amos is also writing a musical for the British National Theater, "The Light Princess," and in July will unveil a graphic novel, "Comic Book Tattoo," based on her catalog.

Amos recorded for Atlantic from 1992 to 2001 before signing with Epic. Her last album for that label was 2007's "American Doll Posse."

natasha bedingfield blogs about coldplay, rihanna, madonna, alexander mcqueen, and sex and the city

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Natasha Bedingfield checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace on Monday (June 2). She writes:

I hope you're all well?

Here are some of my recent emotions...

- I'm itching to hear the new Coldplay album.

- I've just got the Kooks new album and I love it. I'm a new fan.

-I'm jealous of Rhianna's hot pixie hair do. She makes short hair look so good. It's suits her as much as it suits Halle Berry.

- I'm wondering if the Sex and the City movie will live up to how good the show is? It's hard to successfully translate a show to a movie in my opinion, haven't seen it yet though. If you've seen it, shall I watch it?

- I'm secretly smug that my song has owned a position higher than the Madonna single for a few weeks, only because I admire her so much. I sing a cover of one of her songs in my show by the way. She is a great songwriter; I appreciate that more now after singing her song. It feels so good to sing it. I admire how consistent she is.

- I'm missing Chris Moyles. It's hard to be away from home! That's the hardest part about the job I'm lucky enough to have. That bloke knows how to do an interview!

- Brandy is the nicest girl in the biz. I hung out with her recently in Hollywood. She's seriously a good person.

- I'm IN LOVE with my new black and white Alexander McQueen heels. I'm smitten; they go with everything so I'm wearing them everywhere. Also I'm really impressed by American Apparel. Went into one of their shops in Atlanta and took most of it out with me when I left.

Much love

Michael Lohan's Blog Update


Episode 2: "Burning Down the House," June 1, 2008.

Although I continue to have second thoughts about this blog, I am going to keep my word with OK!. And I'll continue to do so in a respectful way.

To which, I thank, Mr. T, Mr. L, my attorney and friends for their advice.

I will however call it as I see it and speak from my heart, because "the truth", (which in essence is God) is what matters and I don't see a lot of it in this show.

What continues to frustrate me is the deception and hypocrisy. As a matter of fact, just this past week there were reports that Lindsay went to the hospital. My question is, if Dina is soooo worried about FALSE tabloid reports, why is it that her own camp lied about Lindsay being in the hospital to visit a friend, when truthfully, she had an asthma attack?

Is it so bad to say that Lindsay did have an asthma attack?Why not just be HONEST and not lie?

[Ed. Note: It was Lindsay's rep who initially said that the actress was visiting a friend. When OK! spoke to Dina last Friday night, she admitted that her daughter had suffered an asthma attack]

Ashley Judd Is Amazing


Ashley Judd is in New York and the actress was on NBC's today show if you can't make out what is on Ashley's necklace, it is a pendant of Afirca.

The actress didn't discuss any of her upcoming movies, instead she spoke about her recent three week humanitarian mission to Rwanda and the Congo. Ashley is a global ambassador for Youth Aids.

Some quotes from the actress, “I was in a brothel in Mumbai last month, and there are lots of babies who are born in brothels because the madams, the pimps and the owners want their sex workers to have one to two children because that traps the women in a cycle of poverty and keeps them in the brothels,” “A woman’s body is not the property of any church, state or other human being,” and to sum it all up “The fewer the children, the healthier the family, the better chance of getting an education.”

Ashley is addressing the UN on Wednesday about human trafficking and slavery. If only every celebrity would work this way.

Laura Albert Versus Savannah Knoop


LEROY HOAXERS IN FALLING-OUT

June 2, 2008 -- LAURA Albert is on the warpath over a new book about the JT LeRoy hoax being written by the one-time friend she hired to portray the fake teen-writing sensation.
In "Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT LeRoy," Savannah Knoop, 27, will tell the story of the charade in which she wore a blond wig and sunglasses to hobnob with celebrities who believed she was "LeRoy," the drug-addicted hustler who supposedly wrote the 1999 best seller "Sarah," about the sexual abuse of a 12-year-old homeless boy. A 2006 expose revealed that Albert had written the book and used Knoop to make appearances as the nonexistent LeRoy.
"I am not in any way connected with this book and it disgusts me. Just because you play a writer doesn't mean you are a writer," Albert, 42, told Page Six. "I think Savannah is being motivated by money and attention. Now that she's had to go back to being a civilian, this is her way of getting back to it. It's sad and it's sleazy. She's really stepping on my feelings."
Seven Stories Press, which will publish the tome in October, gushes in a press release: "Who was the real JT LeRoy? A new memoir reveals how a girl, pretending to be a boy, captured the imagination of everyone who met her . . . JT became a darling of the avant-garde - including Asia Argento, Gus Van Sant, [Michael] Pitt, Carrie Fisher, Winona Ryder, Courtney Love, Debbie Harry and dozens of others . . . Then it turned out to be a hoax."
Albert bristles, "This is a cheap way for Seven Stories to get my story. And it's disgusting they're using celebrity names to sell it. I'm not interested in making a career of JT, I'm an artist."
Knoop couldn't be reached, but Seven Stories Editor-in-Chief Amy Scholder told us: "Savannah has every right to tell her story. It is funny and irreverent. Laura will hopefully feel differently when she reads the book."

Actress Gina Gershon's Affair with Bill Clinton

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Vanity Fair writer Todd Purdum in his extensive article ‘The Comeback Id’ hints that Bill Clinton has been having an affair with Hollywood actress Gina Gershon. Be sure to check out the entire 8 page article. It is one of the best political articles I have read in a long time.

"Over the last few years, aides have winced at repeated tabloid reports about Clinton’s episodic friendship and occasional dinners out with Belinda Stronach, a twice-divorced billionaire auto-parts heiress and member of the Canadian Parliament 20 years his junior, or at more recent high-end Hollywood dinner-party gossip that Clinton has been seen visiting with the actress Gina Gershon in California."

Gershon is best known for her roles in Cocktail, Showgirls and Bound.

What? You expect Slick Willie to sit on his hands and wait while Hillary has been busy for months on the campaign trail chasing Barack Obama in the polls? Last time I checked Gina is a lot more attractive than Monica Lewinsky or Gennifer Flowers. So I guess Bill’s taste has at least improved since leaving office.

Jessica Szohr has Been Targeted

 

Jessica Szohr shows off a natural look at the Target and Converse One Star Collection Movie Awards after party at the Lot in West Hollywood on Sunday.

At the party, the 23-year-old Gossip Girl actress got on stage with Rumer Willis and danced to M.I.A. (aka Maya Arulpragasam) singing “Paper Planes”! The singer was dressed in a techno-colored jester suit and sang for 30 minutes including “London Town”.

The interesting part of the night, however, was when M.I.A. hopped up on a photo booth and announced, “They’re giving me $100,000. I’m going to use it to build schools in Liberia! It costs $2,000 to build a school for 1,000.”

Siriano: Makin' Whoopi's "Ruffled Extravaganza"

Photobucket

Can’t wait to see what Christian Siriano is whipping up for Whoopi Goldberg to wear when she hosts the Tony Awards?

“It’s going to be a ruffled extravaganza,” the Project Runway winner told me yesterday at the official MTV Movie Awards post-party. “She’s going to be wearing a skinny pant, fabulous heels for days, a great jacket and a fabulous coat-cap kind of thing.”

Siriano says he showed about 10 sketches to Ms. Goldberg. “She liked, of course, the most outrageous,” he said. “I tried to do something more tame, but she wanted something more crazy.”

Keep your fingers crossed that it’s ready in time. “It’s going to take a while,” says Siriano. “I have only like a couple of weeks. So it’s going to be balls to the walls and working all night.”

The Tony Awards take place June 15 at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

Those black things on her feet are trash! They belong on commoners like Posh Spice or Kim Kardashian. Shauna only deserves the best.

Even worse, Shauna wore them to the Chanel store yesterday. Double betrayal! Did Shauna not get the memo that we're boycotting Chanel for what they did to Phoebe Price? I can forgive Shauna for her Chanel mishap as long she puts her exquisite lucite heels back on and never takes them off again!

craig david and his fine self on trying to mount a comeback in the USA

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Armed with a hot David Bowie sample and a successful overseas track record, British R&B singer Craig David is ready to re-invade America -- and says he's willing to work to make the Yanks care about it.

"I'm going to have to slowly but surely build momentum back in the States," David tells Billboard.com. He's not necessarily a stranger to the U.S.; his 2000 debut "Born To Do It" went platinum with hit such as "Fill Me In" and "7 Days," while 2002's "Slicker Than Your Average" was certified gold.

But, David says, "It's been a good, like, four years or so that I've been away from America. To come back in and say, 'I'm here! Accept me!,' I'd be fooling myself. America's not waiting for me. It's open with all arms if you're hungry and you go in and make things happen, so I know I've got to work from the grass roots upward."

With his fourth album, "Trust Me," just out after a 2007 release overseas, David, who has a second residence in Miami these days, is busy trotting around the U.S., visiting radio stations and playing acoustically to drum up excitement for the single "Hot Stuff (Let's Dance)," which is built on a Bowie-approved sample from his 1983 hit "Let's Dance." David then hopes to return with his band for a concert tour some time this summer.

"You have to split yourself off from the success you may be having elsewhere," David notes. "You're playing (London's) Wembley Arena, and the next thing you're in a program director's office playing to that one person acoustically ... while the person's messing around with his sticky notes and talking to people on the phone. But you're hoping that record gets added, which you know can create an incredible ripple and domino effect, so you do what you have to do to make things happen."

And, David adds, he's willing to be patient about that process. "I'm young -- I'm only 27 now -- and I've got a new record and I'm excited," he explains. "If this album just stars the ripple to which I drop a next record, then that's what it's all about. I'm not expecting to just come here and, bang!, Craig David's back. I have to work it hard."

So Lil Wayne hit up Love nightclub here in DC a few nights ago for a concert….in rare form. YBF DC correspondent Nicole was on the scene and caught Weezy in all his syrup-y glory. Apparently Weezy didn’t even hit the stage until 1:30am. Too bad he was supposed to be on a little after the doors opened at 7p. I hear the patrons were extra pissy about the bootleg lateness…literally. Someone in the audience actually peed by the stage and Big Tigger (who was hosting the event) had to call them out. Still, I’m told Wayne gave a hot performance (for a dude that high) for about an hour while Snoop from The Wire and other celebs kicked it on stage with him.

You and me both, babe. But the good news is that Harold is set to star in a dramedey on ABC (he was cast in the pilot The Unusuals), which is music to my ears. If you’ve seen much of H.P. in real life, you know he is (a) hilarious, (b) funny and (a) did I mention the funny? And of course, he can act his ass off. Personally, I never felt like poor, unlikable Mikey-poo did him much justice, so a fresh start where he can flaunt his comedy chops sounds good all around to me. Just my opinion!
