Spanish shopkeeper finds Homer Simpson euro 

A one euro coin has turned up in Spain bearing the face of cartoon couch potato Homer Simpson instead of that of the country's king, a sweetshop owner told Reuters on Friday. 


Jose Martinez was counting the cash in his till in the city of Aviles, northern Spain, when he came across the coin where Homer's bald head, big eyes and big nose had replaced the serious features of King Juan Carlos.

"The coin must have been done by a professional, the work is impressive," he told Reuters.

The comical carver had not taken his tools to the other side of the coin displaying the map of Europe. So far, no other coins of the hapless, beer-swilling oaf have been found in circulation.

"I've been offered 20 euros for it," said Martinez.

Julianne Moore does "Wonderland"



She may be approaching her 48th birthday, but Julianne Moore is still as hot as ever!

The actress/mother of two looked stunning as she posed for Wonderland magazine. And she revealed that her husband Bart Freundlich thinks she is strange because of the dark roles she chooses.
“He thinks I’m weird,” she said. “There was a script I read recently where I was like, ‘Ooh this horrible thing happens and it’s really good because they’re all dead!’ He’s like, ‘What is the matter with you?’”

In Julianne’s latest film, Savage Grace, she plays disturbed 1920s socialite Barbara Baekeland and shares a shocking sex scene with her screen son.
“People ask all the time if sex scenes and nudity are hard,” she said. “What’s hard? Not the lines or the physicality but the emotion.”

Shauna Sand looking nasty

Just when I think there's no way she can outdo herself in the "elegant" department, she does. Webster's dictionary owes it to the world to change the meaning of the word elegant to simply "Shauna Sand." The word should only be used to describe Shauna and nothing else!

Last night, Shauna took off her royal coochie cutters outside of Foxtail in West Hollywood. Shauna, being the saint that she is, probably decided to do the lovely people of Los Angeles a gift by cleaning up the air with her beautifully scented vagina.

Tom Cruise Demands Big Hands

Tommy Girl makes a cameo in the upcoming "Tropic Thunder" and Ben Stiller told Elle Magazine (via MSNBC) that Tommy had some specific thoughts about his character.



Ben said, “Tom said… ‘I want to play the studio guy. I want to dance, and I want to have big hands.' I’d never thought about the size of a character’s hands, ever. …Tom was doing this little dance, and I was like, ‘This is insane. If this thing was on YouTube, it would be all over the world. It would be a crazy screensaver.’ ”

There's a simple explanation for this, of course. Tommy Girl asked for "bigger hands" because his baby gerbil fist isn't enough for John Travolta's hungry hole anymore. Johnny needs a watermelon. When Ben Stiller agreed, Tommy did his "horny alien dance" because he knew his bigger hands would make Johnny's hole slobber like a panting Mastiff on a hot summer's day.

Lil' Wayne Daughter Killed In Car Accident?

Lil' Wayne Daughter Killed - Reginae Carter, the daughter of Lil' Wayne, has reportedly been killed. She was only 8 years old.

According to reports, the daughter of Lil' Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, Reginae Carter allegedly died in a traffic accident late in the evening on August 10th, 2008.

An online celebrity site is responsible for reporting the story as fact, but there is no confirmation from any mainstream media outlets.

Lil Wayne's myspace page is literally covered with Reginae Carter comments about her alleged unconfirmed death tonight. Comments about Reginae Carter's death appear on Carter's myspace page since 10 pm PST Sunday.

Questions about Reginae Carter have permeated the web tonight - with no answer. On Yahoo Answers, one mesage has been posted twice that she did not die and this is just a sad and hurtful rumor.

The following message, like the story, has not been not verified:

"Thanx to all of u who are genuinely concerned about the recent report of Reginae being killed in a car accident. It means a lot to our family to know that so many of u care (calls have been coming in to our family all day & are continuing to do so). I am pleased to inform u that this report is FALSE!! It is merely a rumor started by someone who obviously is miserable in their own skin that they would even have the notion to attack a child. Rest assured Reginae is tucked away in her bed @ this very moment trying to get past the hurt this ugliness has caused her and our family. It’s ironic however that although the evil,hellbound[EXPLETIVE] that started this hate mail did something like this to Reginae….she still said a special prayer for them 2nite. This is Nae’s Aunt & all of the responses that I wanted give all went out the window when I heard that prayer. So to all of our extended family & friends & fans…please join us in saying a special prayer for the lost soul who simply had nothing better to do….be sure to include .. LORD please forgive them…for they know not what they do". We love u all,we thank u…and we hope u will spread the good news…Nae-Nae is okay…smile God loves U!!"

If it is true, thought and prayers go out to Lil' Wayne and the members of his family. If it is not, we can all breathe a sigh of relief.

There isn't a great deal of details regarding the rumored death of Reginae.

Her mother, Antonia "Toya" Johnson, was briefly married to Lil' Wayne. They were reportedly high school sweat hearts. Johnnson was just 14 years of age when Reginae was born.

Panettiere Dad to Mom: You Disrespected Me!



TMZ now has details of what went down between Hayden Panettiere's mom and dad before daddy was busted for allegedly striking mommy, and we have video of the mother arriving at the party just hours before the incident.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Alan and Lesley Panettiere were at a party earlier in the evening. We're told Alan was upset because Lesley was "hanging" with someone at the shindig and he felt she was "disrespecting" him.

Sources say, according to Lesley's statement to Sheriffs, the couple went home, began arguing and he struck her in the cheek. We're told cops took pictures and there are visible marks.

Paramedics advised her she should go to the hospital but she refused. Alan did not give a statement to the police. It's unclear if any of their kids were at the house at the time of the incident.

TMZ shot this video of Hayden and Lesley arriving at Eva Longoria's restaurant, Beso, for the party last night, both looking ridiculously hot.

A TRANSATLANTIC chart battle has kicked off between LILY ALLEN and KATY PERRY.

Yank newcomer Katy’s first UK-released album, One Of The Boys, is out next month.

And it’s put the wind up Lily so badly that she has shelved her own album launch.

Stuck On The Naughty Step – the follow-up to Lil’s hit 2006 debut Alright, Still – had been expected out this month but will now be held back until next year.

It has been ages since a good chart battle rumbled across the pond. And Lily v Katy is shaping up to be a classic scrap.

Bruce Springsteen doing Super Bowl Halftime?

Bruce Springsteen May Be The Boss Of Super Bowl XLIII

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Page Six is helpfully passing along the rumor that Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will headline the Super Bowl halftime show next February, a story that was supposedly confirmed by an all-tables reservation E Streeter Steven Van Zandt made at a Tampa-area Hard Rock Cafe. While this move makes sense on a lot of levels—just look at the results of our "Who Should Play Super Bowl XLIII?" poll, in which the Boss was just beaten out by Van Halen—it also brings up the semi-inevitable "so, OK, where do they go from there?" question, since aging rock stars with something resembling a mass appeal in this highly fragmented media age aren't exactly an endlessly renewable resource. Perhaps the plan is just to have Prince, Tom Petty, and the Boss switch off for the next couple of years, what with the world being slated to end before Super Bowl XLVII rolls around and all?

The Perks Of Being The MySpace CEO Include, Apparently, Paris Hilton



Facebook may be the king of the Silicon Valley crowd, but Paris Hilton apparently prefers MySpace. 42 year old MySpace cofounder and CEO Chris DeWolfe has been dating 27 year old Paris Hilton for at least a few weeks, sources close to the company confirm. We first got wind of this when we saw DeWolfe in a random video clip with Hilton from last month (see below). He’s also been throwing parties in the Hamptons, and Hilton has been at all of them.

Now we’ve got a source in New York that’s confirming the two are dating. DeWolfe is hosting yet another party tonight in the Hamptons, and Hilton will reportedly be there as his date.

This is a brilliant marketing move for MySpace (or for Hilton?). Or maybe they actually like each other. All we’ve confirmed is that they are definitely dating.

As far as we can tell DeWolfe still has a wife (but is reportedly separated) and Hilton still has an official boyfriend, but whatever, this is Hollywood. Best of luck to both of them.


The source is TechCrunch which normally does not report celebrity gossip......so I'm not sure what to make of this story.  You can see the video clip at the source.

Interview with Thurston Moore on his new book, "No Wave"




A cool interview with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore on the recent release of his new book, "No Wave"



BYT: Some BYT readers may be surprised to know this, but you are someone who is no stranger to the book world. And as a lifelong mix tape and mix cd obsessive, I can’t thank you enough for the book “Mix Tape.”

Thurston: Thanks!

BYT: In general, how do you feel about book readings and music lectures––have you done this sort of thing before?

Thurston: A few things like this, not too much. I’m really more into publishing books and getting books out. I’ve always wanted to do that. I’ve always been into books as much as I’ve been into recorded media–records and cassettes; I’m not into cds so much. And I’ve always loved books––I was brought up in a household of books.

But the mix tape book…that was something I didn’t really conceive of. It was an editor/friend of mine who was working at Rizzoli (NY-based publishing company) at the time, she works at Abrams (the company that published the Moore/Coley no wave book) now and I still work with her. She had this idea of doing a book on mix tape culture and she had asked me to sort of take this project and do something with it. And I just personalized it. I basically just went through my rolodex and contacted friends I knew, people who were musicians and artists and whatnot–people I knew that would have mixtapes. And they were very interested in the visual aspect of mixtape culture which I am as well. But it was a can of worms––I mean, where do you go with something like that? We decided it would be this thing where they’re like love letters…

Penelope Cruz: "I'm Not Beautiful"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Okay — there is officially no hope for the rest of us!

Penelope Cruz, without doubt one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, thinks she's (ready?) not beautiful!

When Parade.com asked the Spanish star her secret for looking so amazing in both her new movies, Vicky Christina Barcelona and Elegy, she said simply: "I don't have any.

"I don't think I am beautiful. I can look good and I can look ugly.

"What's funny is that when I was younger I wanted everyone to look at me. Now I like to watch other people because you can learn a lot of interesting things."

But it sounds like the cast of Vicky Christina who showed up for the filming of her love scene's with Scarlett Johansson don't quite agree with her self-assessment.

"The set was very crowded that day and I'm not sure everyone had a reason to be there," she said.

Fergie and Josh's Bedroom Dress-Up

It seems Fergie is already gearing up for her role as a prostitute in the movie musical Nine this fall.

A pal of the “Fergalicious” singer, who will star opposite Daniel Day-Lewis, reveals that she owns a variety of sexy costumes that she uses to play dress up for fiancé Josh Duhamel in the bedroom.

Among the characters she becomes: a police officer, a dominatrix and a nurse. When Fergie, 33, showed Josh, 35, her French maid outfit, he joked, “Oh, good, you’re finally gonna clean your closet!”

A pal of the stunning couple, who are taking their time planning their upcoming wedding, tells OK!, “Fergie could not stop laughing. She says not taking themselves too seriously is the key to their relationship — and the fact that they can’t keep their hands off each other doesn’t hurt either!”

Even though Fergie isn't shy about telling OK! about her plans in the bedroom, she likes to stay private about wedding plans. "That's the one thing I can keep secret in my life," she coyly explains.

Lauren Conrad confirmed to PEOPLE that she will be designing at least one dress for
next month’s Emmy Awards, calling it a “huge compliment”. “I’m doing one. I may be doing two,” she said Saturday in Las Vegas before hosting a night at Christian Audigier The Nightclub. The designer of the Lauren Conrad Collection will be dressing the show’s “trophy girls” who bring the awards on stage for the eventual winner. Conrad elaborated, “It’s a huge compliment to be asked to do that, and it was really amazing to be taken seriously.” The invitation to design the dress is a major victory for Conrad who has been chastised by some who recently said she isn’t involved in her clothing line. “I didn’t even really respond to the rumors because they were so silly,” she said. “It was someone who knew how important the line is to me and knew that that would hurt me.” Dressed in BCBG, The Hills star also squashed rumors that she is dating My Boys actor Kyle Howard. When asked is the two were dating, she laughed, saying “No, but I do know him, yes.”

My friends back home don’t want to spend $250 for a pair of jeans. I want them to be able to walk into a medium-priced store and be able to afford a cool pair of jeans for less than 100 bucks.” Crow’s most expensive jeans are $69, with shirts staring at $29 — click here to see the whole line at dillards.com.

First Official 'View' Group Photo

You'd think they would've done one of these months ago, guess not.

The ladies of the View have officially been photographed together for the first time, with Sherri Shepherd finally earning her place as the fifth horsewoman at the roundtable of the apocalypse.

Sherri's arrival last year signified an end to several tumultuous seasons marked by on-air feuding, off-air feuding, babies being born, tears and much grammatically incorrect blogging.

Also relegated to the ages was the stressful yet ultimately successful search for a person who was, all at once, a believer in the 15th-century solar system, a supporter of this country's one-year election cycle and good on television.

And now, with their struggles but a memory, the cast places Sherri in its center, symbolically holding the daytime-TV family together and placing an even more comfortable distance between Whoopi and Elisabeth.

Several internet gossip sites reported that Reginae Carter, the daughter of Weezy was killed in a traffic accident late last night (August 11th).

As a result of the rumors, Lil’ Wayne’s MySpace page was littered with comments and condolences but according to a representative from Wayne’s label, Universal Records, the reports are false and Reginae is doing just fine.

Reginae is Wayne’s child from his first marriage to his high school sweetheart, Antonia “Toya” Johnson.

Jonas Brothers live at MSG 8/9

My sister and I were in NYC for the weekend with my family and we went to the show on Saturday night. I can't even begin to explain how amazing it was. We saw them in Toronto at the dress rehearsal but that was only about 1500-2000 people; it was mind blowing seeing them in such a huge venue with ~20,000 others fans. I was never really a fan of them until I saw them in concert and now I'm hooked.

Oh and Brooke Shields was at the show with her daughter sitting a few seats down from us. Nick noticed her about halfway through the show and kept singing to them, it was so cute.

There are also a couple videos behind the cut.

Clearly not content with his work on such fan-favorite franchises like “Buffy,” “Serenity” and the upcoming “Dollhouse,” Whedon regaled MTV News with the details of his proposed plan to reboot the “Batman” film franchise before Director Christopher Nolan got the gig.

“Well, I actually did pitch a ‘Batman’ film when [Warner Bros. began developing "Batman Begins"], and it wasn’t what they did but the vibe was very similar,” said Whedon. “Mine was a bit less epic. It was more about the progression of him and it was more in Gotham City. He didn’t go to Tibet and meet cool people, but it was very similar in vibe [to Nolan's "Batman Begins"].”

After a little prodding, Whedon opened up a bit about his “Batman” idea, even going into detail about what villain he planned on using…or not using.

“In my version, there was actually a new [villain], it wasn’t one of the classics — which is probably why they didn’t use it,” he laughed. “It was more of a ‘Hannibal Lector’ type — he was somebody already in Arkham Asylum that Bruce went and sort of studied with. It was a whole thing — I get very emotional about it, I still love the story. Maybe I’ll get to do it as a comic one day [ed. note: HINT HINT, DC Comics... ].”

Despite losing out to Nolan, Whedon has no hard feelings, and gave nothing but praise to the Director Who Can Do No Wrong. “I just love the respect [Nolan has] for the character and the world,” he said. “I thought Christopher Nolan’s done an amazing job of bringing out the comic book, and I see a lot of movies [coughs “HULK”] — sorry, I had a Hulk stuck in my throat — that don’t really have the aesthetic or the pathos or really get why the comic book works.”

BLIND ITEMS

#1. Which TV leading lady has become quite the demanding diva? Following her recent movie successes, she's trying to get more than triple her current salary
source

#2. This hit sequel almost didn't come to fruition. The reason? How about an A list film actor who was also an A list television actor who couldn't keep his libido under control. Seems as if this A lister took a bet from another A list film actor that a certain wife, of yet a third A list film actor was open to his charms. Well it turns out that he was right. The wife of the third A list actor did have a relationship with our first A list actor. I guess maybe relationship is the wrong word. It was either once or twice, depending on which story you believe. What is known though is that the wife confessed all to the third A list actor who then decided he couldn't work with A list actor number one anymore. He finally gave in to the pressure from the studio, but has not said one word to A list actor #1 outside of hello or goodbye since that date. As for the bet? A list actor #1 offered up his girlfriend for the night. A list actor #2 offered up his girlfriend for the night. Unfortunately no one bothered to check if this was ok with the girlfriend of A list actor #2. She declined, although not for being bartered in a bet, or possibly destroying a marriage. She just didn't find A list actor #1 appealing.

EDIT: Translation- All three are A-list actors. We'll call them Bob, John, and Fred. Bob and Fred made a bet that John's wife would sleep with Bob. Turns out it was true. The wife ends up confessing to John about her infidelity, making John refuse to work with Bob. He only did the movie because the studio pressured him. Since Fred won the bet against Bob, Bob had to let Fred sleep with his girlfriend. Unfortunately, Bob's girlfriend didn't know about the bet and declined to sleep with Fred because she was not attacted to him at all.

two of my favorite shorty nerds, to be on Heroes?

Exclusive: 'Heroes' Geeks Out Over Seth Green, Breckin Meyer



Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Heroes is getting its very own geek squad.

Real-life BFFs and frequent collaborators Seth Green and Breckin Meyer are nearing a deal to join the cast of Heroes for multi-episode arcs, sources confirm to me exclusively.

As I first teased in this week's episode of Ausiello TV, the Robot Chicken duo will play Atlanta-based comic book nerds aficionados who cross paths with (and perhaps serve as advisors to) one of the Heroes. I'm told the names of their characters are still in flux, so there's a chance the cheeky monikers I referenced in ATV won't stick. Then again, they very well may. (Fingers crossed that at least one of them does.)

Got any theories as to what higher purpose Green and Meyer may serve in the Heroesverse? Is it just me, or do these two bring to mind a certain nerdy advisory panel from another popular sci-fi franchise? C'mon, it can't just be me.

I love these guys sfm.

Did anyone watch Grey's Anatomy with Seth on it? It was epic and disgrossting.

'Lost' stars in renegotiation talks

Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly may get beefier paychecks

Aug 11, 2008, 12:00 AM ET

Call it Operation Oceanic Two.

ABC Studios, which produces the ABC drama "Lost," has quietly started renegotiations with stars Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly to beef up their paychecks, currently at about $150,000 per episode.

However, word of the talks leaked out by Friday, prompting reps for some of the other regulars to call the studio to open their own renegotiations. The majority of the "Lost" supporting players are in the $80,000-90,000 per episode range.

Chris Brown discusses an upcoming project:

“It’s a movie called ‘The Heist’ that I’m doing with T.I., Idris Elba and Matt Dillon. I’m playing a killer. I’m not going to give anything else away! It’s a bank-robbing movie, so it’s one of those action-packed films. You get a little different side of me in that movie.”

“At the end of the day, I’m going to focus on my music first. [But] me being onstage enhances me being in the movie, and then me being in the movie — acting, catching characters — gives me time to transform into a different character onstage.”


Just what the world needs, another singer slash actor slash…the movie sounds hot though, especially the Idris Elba part.

 7 Hollywood Curses and Coincidences
Photobucket As these are the biggest stories imaginable in our plagued and ruined times, we thought we'd wax high school poetic about celebrity jinxes and death curses, and then provide you with a list of some of the best ones right. here. After the jump you can read all about the Poltergeist skeleton hex, the famous Rule of Three, and the Exorcist ailments, among others. There are seven of them, because that is a lucky number. Stay away, ghost of Burgess Meredith!

Celebrities Die in Miserable Trios
No one really knows where this theory came from, though we suspect it may have something to do with the Wiccan Rule of Three. The Rule is pretty simple: once one celebrity dies, inevitably two more famous deaths will follow soon after. Speculation and dot-connecting can reach a fever pitch, even if the "celebrity" status of those considered can be a bit tenuous at times. Some sort of sane person may say that, you know, people die in an unending flood of thousands, every unforgiving day. But most of those people are poor and uninteresting. So, yeah. Important deaths happen in threes. The rest is just population control.

Carol Ann and the Poltergeist... Poltergeist
When filming the gruesome "swimming pool full of dead people" scene, the crew used actual corpses (though they were union, at least.) A series of unfortunate events followed, as chronicled by the AJ Benza of unfortunate events, Lemony Snicket. OK, that is not at all true, but, yes, tragically several people involved with the production died suddenly. Dominique Dunne, the 22-year-old actress who played the eldest daughter of the haunted family, was murdered by her boyfriend soon after the movie was released. Heather O'Rourke, who played Carol Ann, died suddenly of a septic infection. Two other actors died shortly after. It makes me icky to think about it, so let's end there. You can read more about it here.

The Dark Knight Curse: The Revenge of Katie Holmes
As I've already expounded upon it beautifully, I won't go into the nitty gritty specifics of this latest Hollywood hex. All you need to know is that Heath died, Christian Bale threw his elderly saint of a mother out a window and then peed on her, and then Morgan Freeman took an ill-advised shortcut. Note the overlap between the DK jinx and Thorntongate. One party is responsible. You decide which one it is. But, chose wisely.

Javier Bardem: Part-time stripper; Momma is proud

The Oscar-winning actor was scraping to make ends meet before becoming an international star - but he insists he's not ashamed about his early days as an exhibitionist.

He says, "I danced one night in a place, there was a club. And they asked for a guy to kind of make a striptease and I did it… It was for ten minutes. I needed money.

"My mother was there in the audience. She was so proud."

New Brunette in Town

There is an article in this week's Enquirer about my new friend Dasha Astafeyeva, an upcoming Playmate from the Ukraine.

I just have to blog about her in her defense . . . . she is one of the most beautiful, sweet, intelligent and talented women I have ever met. Not to mention a great model and a pleasure to work with. One might not expect someone as stunning and photogenic as Dasha to be as down-to-earth and approachable as she is . . . . but take my word for it, she is unreal. She reminds me of a Disney princess. We had so much fun when she was here in the States, and I hope she can return soon. She is a singer in the Ukraine . . . hopefully she blows up here, too and you all can get to know her like I do.

With the Oct. 30 issue, which will go on sale Oct. 17, Rolling Stone, published by Wenner Media, will adopt the standard size used by all but a few magazines.

What's up with Woody's Women?

Photobucket

For decades the director's female leads have been attractive but neurotic - figures who are oddly, comfortably familiar.


LOS ANGELES - One set of spectacularly full lips after another is singing the praises of writer/director Woody Allen. All have mouthed his dialogue on screen recently, and all speak of him fondly, like the odd uncle they didn't expect to find so endearing.

To a woman and one man - that would be Penelope Cruz, Scarlett Johansson, and relative newcomer Rebecca Hall, as well as Javier Bardem (no slouch in the lip department himself) - they talk about the insightful words Allen writes, and then how he insists that they change them on set.

Allen, in fact, has been telling journalists he had Academy Award-winner Bardem and Cruz create all their own Spanish-language arguments in "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," opening Friday in Boston. But Barden calls the story apocryphal, and a bit of a tease on Allen's part. There was a script, although they were encouraged to improvise. Cruz, for instance, threw in so much profanity that she feared Allen's reaction. He let it stand.

You Never Know What Goes On Behind Closed Doors........

The scuffle allegedly occurred around 3:00 am this morning and Alan allegedly hit Lesley in the face. We spoke earlier about the pain that Hayden must be experiencing as she watches her parents go through this. We at Buzzfoto know there is never an excuse for domestic violence and encourage our readers to always be kind and to be report violence. It is strange that these events have taken place this morning as we have these EXCLUSIVE fotos of Lesley and her husband Alan Panettiere during happier times, backstage with their son Jansen at the Netflix event on Saturday in Los Angeles, California.

"One day I was with my boyfriend and I opened a magazine and realised, 'You know what, honey, I would probably make out with Angelina Jolie if she wanted to'.

"It doesn't matter if you're female or male, if the right woman walks through the door, everybody's jaw is going to be on the floor."

Katy's first record was a gospel collection. But a Christian website launched a backlash: "What a sad picture of a lost child swept away by carnal pleasures.

Alexander Skarsgård talks about Generation Kill



TV Profile: ALEXANDER SKARSGARD STAYS FROSTY AS ICEMAN IN HBO'S 'GENERATION KILL'

The actor talks about his famous father (and him not helping), the realism of the sets and working with Marines

By PETER BROWN, Managing Editor
Published 8/11/2008

While he isn’t one of the commanding officers in HBO’s Iraq war mini-series GENERATION KILL, if there is a leading character in the television series, it is Alexander Skarsgard’s Sgt. Brad “Iceman” Colbert – the tip of the arrow in the first Humvee of Bravo 2 Squad as part of the Marine First Recon unit.
Skarsgard’s name might seem familiar to you. His father is journeyman actor Stellan Skarsgard that has been in everything from PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST and AT WORLD’S END, to KING ARTHUR, to DEEPBLUESEA and RONIN. For his son, Alexander, this is his first big break in Hollywood after staring in a number of overseas TV and films.

So dear old dad definitely had to give Alexander some pointers, right?

“He did not give me any advice at all and I was terrified,” Skarsgard says. “When I was auditioning, I was very, very confident and because I had to be. So I kind of played the part of a confident actor going into the audition basically because I had to, because if I didn't believe that I was the only one who could play Sgt. Brad Colbert, these guys wouldn't believe it.”

Two days later, “I was on a plane to Namibia with seven scripts, a book and scared sh*tless and terrified,” Skarsgard says. “But it was good because as soon as we came out, we were thrown into boot camp with these guys and it all started to make sense, you know, because it's difficult just the way we talk with the radio communication and the lingo. I'm not used to that, I'm not a Marine, but I'm not American either. I'm from Sweden, so it's not my language.”

While dad didn’t help, at least he had the help of some of the actual Marines that were actually there and they started them off with the boot camp that helped the actors to understand how they are going to shoot certain scenes, the history of the Marine Corps and the history of recon.

Skarsgard says this was helpful in getting a real feel for what they would be dealing with on the set even though they knew it wasn’t real, it was a movie set.

“But I remember we were sitting in our Humvee and there was this little girl without legs and people lying dead all over the place, it was an intense experience for us,” Skarsgard says.

“And then we realized, sh*t, two Humvees back is Rudy [Reyes], and he saw this live five years ago, and he's been dealing with this ever since, and now he's on a movie set and has to see it, and I talked a lot to Rudy about it," adds Skarsgard. "I guess it was the same for you to see a set that, you know, must bring you back.”

Julia Stiles-boyfriend of 2 years split

  July 28th, 2008

August 11, 2008 --

JULIA Stiles and her beau of more than two years, artist Jonathan Kramer, have split over "irreconcilable differences." The breakup may have left the actress in a foul mood; a spy says Stiles got worked up the other day at Café Frida, on Columbus Avenue, when some nearby diners started taking snapshots of themselves. Stiles assumed they were snapping her, and as they left, she waved to them and said, "Bye, guys - glad you got your picture!" A rep for Stiles said, "Julia was trying to get out of the way of the picture. She wasn't being sarcastic."

we GLG (GirLicious Girls) check youtube to get the feedback of what people are saying about our music, and the majority of it is good things. but some of it is a comparison of us to another group.

so lets break it downnnn....

girlicious and danity kane are different. it's okay to be fans of both groups. seriously. i have the dk album and i love it. i have the girlicious album and i love it. our genre of music is completely different. we have urban music and they have pop music. the only thing we have in common is that we are both multi racial girl groups. other than that we're the opposite. we dress different. act different. look different. our musics different. sound different. we're just different all together. don't get me wrong though i think dk is great. but to clear the record and i think i can speak for both groups when i say we're different. :)

The Top 6 “Celebrities” who shouldn’t be famous

The Top 6 “Celebrities” who shouldn’t be famous

I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point in recent history, it became ok to be famous for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Plenty of people have opinions on celebrity gossip on the whole – but the simple fact is – a lot of people that are followed constantly in the press are there for a reason – they’re extremely talented. Take Britney Spears for example – yes, she’s crazy, yes, she makes awful decisions over and over again, but the she’s also an outrageously talented and driven performer.

That’s more than we can say for this group of – well – what would you call a person without a job, career, talent or marketable skills that mostly parties and lives off their parents? Oh right… now we call them “Celebrities”.

Interview With Sharon Jones

The Woman Out Front
With the Dap-Kings, Soul Singer Sharon Jones Brings Brassy Back



At 52, Sharon Jones could easily be Amy Winehouse's mother. Instead, the Brooklyn-raised soul singer and leader of the Dap-Kings is often mistaken for the understudy to the boozy British singer.

The confusion began when producer Mark Ronson went looking for a vintage sound for Winehouse's breakthrough 2006 album, "Back to Black." He hired the Dap-Kings, a suit-wearing octet that recalls such soul legends as Booker T. and the M.G.'s. It is their throwback sound on Winehouse's Grammy-winning song, "Rehab" -- and on five others on the album.

"It was a problem because we worked so hard" to get to that point, Jones said recently from Chicago, her voice hoarse after a particularly grueling set of European tour dates. "Then, it took someone else to come in there and spend a few days, a few weeks with the Dap-Kings, and next thing you know they're up getting a Grammy."

Arcade Fire show Radiohead around Montreal
Bands bond over bagels, dragons and football




Radiohead's Colin Greenwood has revealed how Arcade Fire showed his own band the sights of Montreal when they last played in the city.

In an interview with The Montreal Gazette, Greenwood explained that the two bands hung out after Arcade Fire came to both of Radiohead's Montreal shows in June 2006.

"It was really fun," the bassist said. "They took us up to their part of town [Mile End], where they live. We had bagels and coffee on the church steps. It was really cool. We went to some bar - this European Community Centre - and watched football during the World Cup.

Greenwood added: "They came and saw both shows. They took me, Ed and Phil to see some gaming/Dungeons And Dragons thing in the park, then we walked to the top of the hill and looked down across Montreal with them. We talked to Regine and Win (Butler) about life and touring. It was really cool."

Radiohead return to Montreal as part of the North American leg of their world tour on August 6.

Tegan and Sara Line Up North American Dates



It's been a couple months since Tegan and Sara wrapped their last North American tour, and dang if they're not already getting revved up to do it again. The Sisters Quin will attend to few festival appearances before picking things back off proper-like September 30 in Atlanta. They'll close things out in mid-October with a four-night stand at Los Angeles' Henry Fonda Theater, at which point we may very well be telling you about their plans to hit the road this winter.

Before all that, the duo will do an acoustic set at the Under the Volcano festival in Vancouver this weekend. Then, on September 4, Tegan will break away from her sister for one night in NYC. She'll play a SPIN.com Housing Works benefit show alongside members of Circa Survive and Anberlin and authors Elizabeth Seward and Augusten Burroughs. As previously reported, Tegan contributed a song to the soundtrack to Burroughs' latest book, A Wolf at the Table.

Two film icons in rare screentest

I was just thinking about Paul Newman and everything  D: and found this on YouTube. It's a clip of James Dean and Paul Newman auditioning for East of Eden. Paul was considered strongly for the role of Aron, but lost to actor Richard Davalos. The video is a little wonky in some parts but it's totally worth it for the ~sexual tension~ (aka Jimmy making Paul really uncomfortable).

Jolie replaces Cruise in 'Salt'



"Edwin A. Salt" is about to undergo a gender change.

Once expected to star Tom Cruise, the Columbia Pictures espionage thriller will be redrafted by screenwriter Kurt Wimmer as a star vehicle for Angelina Jolie. Philip Noyce remains attached as director and Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Sunil Perkash are producing.

Jolie is close to a deal to play the title character, a CIA officer who's accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy and must elude capture long enough to establish her innocence.

Cruise had long flirted with the project, but that ended recently. The well-regarded script had several male movie stars circling.

Jolie took a liking to it, prompting the studio's decision to rewrite it. Sources said the project won't require that much of an overhaul to suit her.

After Universal beefed up Jolie's role in "Wanted" and then marketed the action film squarely on Jolie's shoulders and watched it gross $132 million domestically, Jolie reestablished in the wake of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" that she is the rare female who is viable in an action genre that has been almost the exclusive domain of men.

"Edwin A. Salt" will undergo a title change, and if everything falls into place, the film shapes up as a return vehicle for Jolie, who recently gave birth to twins. Another candidate for her return is the Lionsgate drama "Atlas Shrugged," which has been adapted by Randall Wallace from the Ayn Rand novel.

Jolie, who also provided a lead voice in the DreamWorks Animation hit "Kung Fu Panda," drew strong notices at the Cannes Film Festival for her starring role in the Clint Eastwood-directed drama "The Changeling" for Imagine and Universal. That film opens in late October.

Former Blink-182 bassist sues over bad investment

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Former Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus sued a father-and-son business Monday, alleging they pocketed his investment in a venture to install automated checkout machines at McDonald's restaurants.

The lawsuit in San Diego Superior Court says Ed and Jeff Mitchell lined their pockets "to the tune of over $1.5 million." It alleges their company — Missicom LLC of San Diego — does not have any contracts to install the machines to take orders and collect payments at McDonald's or anywhere else.

Hoppus, currently a member of the pop-punk band Plus-44, invested $600,000 in Missicom in October 2003, according to the complaint.

The lawsuit says the Mitchells raised nearly $3.4 million and solicited millions of dollars from "prominent, well-known figures."

Hoppus' attorney, Howard King, said in a news release that other investors included golfer Phil Mickelson and former Blink-182 members Tom Delonge and Travis Barker. After Blink-182 disbanded, Hoppus and Barker formed Plus-44.

Spoiler Chat: Prison Break, Office, Heroes and More!


Hey, tubers! Just got back from the set of Prison Break set where I spied Wentworth Miller kissing someone very exciting. (And it wasn't me, but I'm still excited, so you can probably guess who...Squee!) I also have the word on how Ali Larter will come back to Heroes. Ooh! Plus more Office scoop on Toby (Paul Lieberstein) and Pam (Jenna Fischer). So should we get started, or would you prefer to swap rhubarb-pie recipes? What's that? You want the scoop? OK....

Any word on whether we will be seeing our favorite damsel in distress, Kim Bauer, on this season of
24
?

My 24 sources told me there are currently no plans to put Kim (
Elisha Cuthbert
) in season seven, and my
Lipstick Jungle
sources told me there are no plans to let that other 24 Kim (
Kim Raver
) off of her NBC series to come and do her previous Fox gig. However, there
are
plans for Kim's hands to be firmly cupping Rob Buckley's backside, so all is not lost.

Any dirty gossip on the drama queens of
The Hills
?

You know I only take it dirty, my friend. (And that didn't sound right
at all
.) Even though Lo Bosworth has been compared to the devil, she thinks season four will be her salvation. "I think I will be redeemed and everybody can go back to not hating me," Lo told us at a recent event. Of course, the previews for season four seem to promise otherwise, as tension continues to build between Lo and Audrina. By the way, MTV will be filming/hosting a beach party at Malibu Colony on Aug. 18 leading up to the premiere of the new season at 10 that night.

What's the scoop on Brody's
Bromance
show? Any good?

The real scoop is how Brody reacted to Stephanie Pratt's name being brought up: "Blaaaaah." So the feud continues. As for the show, Brody is looking for a new friend on the MTV reality series, which premieres later this year and is brought to you by Ryan Seacrest Productions. Why does that name sound familiar?

Porn "actress" Tera Patrick BlackBook magazine interview


Tera Patrick Busts Through
By Benn Barna

August 06, 2008

Tera Patrick has oodles of sex. Need proof? The 5"9" former Ford model from Great Falls, Montana is one of the top actresses in the adult entertainment industry, and she's got the multi-million dollar empire to prove it. She's business by day, bondage by night. Along with her husband, former Oz actor Evan Seinfeld, she's one-half of a porn super couple, a TomKat with anal beads. Throughout her near ten-year career, she's gone beyond the San Fernando Valley and landed on the cover of FHM magazine, played a version of herself on "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," and most recently served as a special producer on the video game Saints Row 2. I spoke to the woman formerly known as Linda Ann Hopkins about sharing her husband with porn stars, her non-relationship with Jenna Jameson, and which of her colleagues is the authority on cunnilingus.

Tell me about your involvement in Saint’s Row 2.

Saint’s Row 2 is s a very exciting project. It’s really cool because not only am I working on a video game, but I have a teenage brother, so I’m like a hero to him. It’s really exciting because it’s my demographic: young boys, twenty year old boys, thirty year old boys. Video games are like porn movies. Everybody loves them and everybody plays them.

You’ve managed to transcend porn and have somewhat of a mainstream presence, which is very rare for porn stars. Jenna Jameson is another example.

I’m the only one with a mainstream presence. Jenna’s never been on the cover of FHM. There’s a lot more things I’ve done than Jenna. I wouldn’t say she has a mainstream presence, I would say that she is the number one face of porn. She has more of a porn look. And Jenna’s a lot older than me and she’s been in the business a lot longer than me. She was the first to go mainstream with Howard Stern, but I’ve done more legitimate mainstream things than she has. There’s really no other porn star that’s crossed into mainstream that I can think of. I’m the only girl that’s been on FHM, I have a video game, I’ve been on the Carson Daly show, I’ve done a lot of stuff. I’m not trying to toot my own horn, I’m not saying I’m definitely out of porn or turning my back on porn, I would never do that. But I’m pretty much the girl that makes porn okay.

Why have you achieved this mainstream recognition?

Aside from the fact that I have a good work ethic, good attitude, I can act, and I’m intelligent, I don’t look like a porn star. I’m not bleached blonde with silicon and fake lips. I have a good look. I look like a fashion model. There’s nothing wrong with looking like a porn star, but when women see me, it’s okay for their husbands to look at me. I’m not fake looking.

Has porn changed a lot since you started in 1999?

The presence was definitely different. There was a lot less girls in the industry. It used to be owned by old, bald, hairy Jewish guys. Now I’m the one who is capitalizing on my look. Now it’s about empowerment over exploitation. It’s about the performers taking over, the girls making the money for the first time. There’s a lot of women that devoted a lot of their lives to working in the industry for ten, fifteen, or twenty years and they don’t have anything.

Are you and Jenna Jameson friends? I know you were involved in a legal snafu.

No. I was never affiliated with her. Jenna and I have never worked together. There was a brief moment where I did some business with Club Jenna, but that is no longer. I am completely in charge of my entire empire. I wish Jenna the best.

Did you have some kind of falling out?

No, we’ve never had a falling out! We’ve only met a few times, and she’s no longer in the business. We just don’t speak and I only wish her the best.

Wolfmother Split, Singer to Recruit New Members

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After only one album, Wolfmother have announced via their website that they are splitting up. Initially, keyboardist/bassist Chris Ross left the Australian trio, citing irreconcilable personal and musical differences. Not wanting to simply fill the void and continue on in a changed line up, drummer Myles Heskett followed Ross’ exit. That leaves singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, who said he would recruit new musicians and continue on as Wolfmother. After touring the world from 2006 to early 2007 on the strength of their self-titled debut, “longstanding frictions within the group” finally came to the forefront, forcing the band to take an extended break to consider its future in late 2007. Earlier this year, the band regrouped to start work on their new album and to “road-test” new material. But after this weekend’s Splendour in the Grass Festival in their native Australia, Ross decided he had had enough. The band said they ask “fans to please understand that in spite of their best efforts over a long period of time, they just could not find a harmonious way to work together and that has lead to the decisions announced today.” In their short history, Wolfmother sold a half-million copies of their self-titled debut album in the U.S., became a Guitar Hero favorite and even won the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2007 for “Woman.”

Mariah Carey in "Ocean Style Magazine"

Article excerpts:

Tell us about E=MC²
This album, it’s so much about fun and freedom and just the continuation of me feeling emancipated. It’s sort of like emancipation equals Mariah Carey times two. This is me, 100 percent …having fun, just being real. People ask me all the time: “How do you stay relevant, how do you stay current, how do you make music that people continue to respond to?” You just keep being real, keep being you. Stay true to who you are from the beginning.

And the karaoke feature on the [Emancipation of Mimi Live] DVD?
It’s been really amazing for me to watch how karaoke has become so popular around the world…. It’s fun and … its cute – its something fun to do.

Tell us about your new fragrance, M by Mariah Carey.
I was so excited to work on a fragrance because I’ve never even worn a fragrance before. I’ve never liked perfume until I started talking to the people at Elizabeth Arden about working together on a fragrance. It’s called M and its my favourite, favourite scent of all time.

Is it more fun to be you now than in the past?
Yes it’s definitely a lot more fun being “Mariah Carey” [now] than it was when I first started out … I was very young and people were kind of bossing me around and telling me what to do and it was more difficult to be myself. But, now, being able to make the music that I love … whether its singing a big ballad or doing an up-temp record that makes me happy – it’s up to me to do what I want, and so it’s fun.

Michael Ian Black blogs about his pilot project that also stars Michael Showalter


 
Hi Everybody

Sorry I've been in absentia (Latin for "on board a UFO") for the last week. Michael Showalter and I were taping our pilot for Comedy Central and I did not have any free time for blogging. How did the taping go? It was a disaster. Most of the problem had to do with the fact that we only had five days to shoot the entire thing. Ordinarily this would be enough time to shoot a half hour television pilot, but I stupidly scheduled a bunch of softball games at the exact same time that we supposed to be shooting. Big mistake. Obviously, the TV pilot should take precendence over some recreational softball games, but our team is in the hunt for the league title and I felt like the guys really needed my moral support (I spend most games on the bench because I am not "good" at softball). As a result of all this softball, we ended up shooting less than half of the script in our allotted time. So instead of a half hour pilot, we will eventually wind up with a thirteen minute pilot. Will this affect our chances of getting picked up? Almost certainly, yes.

Everything Must End

This isnt an easy blog to write but I feel the need to confess... I have a lot going on in my life right now with the release of my book at the end of the month. And because of that I am beginning to do interviews and press to get a buzz going about my book. One of the more common questions is "when am I getting married"? (I know most of you know this, but for those who dont I got engaged last year.) So, I may as well announce it here to you that.... I am no longer in that relationship. A lot of you keep asking me why my profile says single and why I seem sad lately. So, before you read it in some dumb article or online, let me be the first to say it. We broke up about 2 weeks ago. I am not ready to be in a relationship at the moment. Ive been married once before and Im not entirely sure I want to do it again. Right now I need to focus on me. I know it sounds selfish but its the best thing for me right now. As far as the break up goes, there are no hard feelings and we are still friends. We are just trying to give each other some space. I will always love him. So, for those of you who know him or are on his friends list please be respectful... This is a hard time for both of us. I just wanted to tell you what has been going on with me... And if nothing else, its helped me slim down. a break up is always a great diet. I think Ive lost 10lbs just from the break up alone. All jokes aside though... I just wanted you to hear it from me and not some gossiping fool. I love you all and am so glad I can share my life with you as you do with me...

Love, Life & Metal
-Mia


P.s: I thought being alone again was going to suck. I think that is what kept me from breaking up a lot sooner. But I am finding a new sense of freedom and empowerment. It sounds corny, but I feel like I can do anything. I dont need to have someone in my life to make me feel complete. Right now I can do this... Maybe one day i will meet that someone that will change my mind about love and what it means to be in love. But right now I need to rely on myself and learn to love ME again... Thank you all for you kindness. If I didnt have you guys I'd be miserable!!!

Sure, Batman is cool and all, but he's a work of pure fiction, right?

There are only six not-so-easy steps to a Bat-enhanced you. Better start training now, because it's going to take about 20 years before you're ready to mete out justice on the mean streets of Gotham City... or Boise.

Professor E. Paul Zehr studies kinesiology and neuroscience at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. His credentials don't end there: he also practices martial arts and has been collecting Batman comics since he was a kid.

Rainn Wilson is shamelessly promoting his new movie using Jenna Fischer's myspace blog

Today he posted this from her myspace:

"A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM JENNA’S "FRIEND", RAINN WILSON



Hey there Jenna's MySpacers!

My name is Rainn Wilson and I've kidnapped the lovely Jenna, put her, bound, in the trunk of my firebird and logged onto her MySpace to send out this bulletin.

To free America's sweetheart, Pam Beesly, one half of the magic which is 'Jam', you must attend my new movie, 'The Rocker', which opens August 20th.
As soon as the film grosses 18.7 Mil, she will be released and given a peach smoothie.

I've also recently discovered that August 20th is truly a special and historic day. Estonia achieved it's independence! Sting got married to Trudy Skyler! What better way to celebrate the magic of Sting and Estonia than by seeing what is perhaps the greatest film ever made (about a heavy metal drummer).

Many of you have perhaps seen posters of me in my leopard briefs, or the trailers in which my balls get racked by a power strip. And, although the film WILL be adored by legions of teen-aged male Dwight fans, it will also be loved by the whole GD family, including Amish cousins.

It truly is a fun and lovely coming-of-age, rock n'roll comedy and good reviews are coming in, including two thumbs up from Ebert and Roeper and also from my son, Walter (who has three of them).

Also, if you're a fan of:

Will Arnett, Christina Applegate, Jason Sudeikis, Jane Lynch, Emma Stone, Jeff Garlin, Demitri Martin, Fred Armisen, Bradley Cooper, Pope Benedick III, WINGS (the show and/or the back-up band), coral reefs, soup, Former Mayor Ed Koch, the guy who played Norm on Cheers, baby Suri, dairy, Coldplay, Animal Planet or the letter "Q"...

YOU WILL LOVE THIS MOVIE!

So... Please spend your 10.50$ American on THE ROCKER, get yourself a popcorn and a Mountain Dew, bring 1800 of your closest friends so that 1) Jenna gets a smoothie and 2) They let me be in another movie someday.

That is all.

NY Bar Backed by Ledger To Go Ahead



A nautical-themed restaurant and bar in New York, partly designed and backed by Australian actor Heath Ledger, will open soon, after his father Kim provided money to finish the project.

BrightSide, the Brooklyn bar in which the Dark Knight star had invested with his friend and business partner Jud Mongell, contains features designed by Ledger, including a chessboard engraved into one of the tables.

"Heath was a big chess player," Mongell told Life and Style magazine.

"The whole idea was to make it a spot for us. We wanted to make it our own space to hang out."


Ledger, 28, was found dead on January 22 in his Manhattan apartment from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs, including powerful painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone and anti-anxiety pills.

Mongell said the opening would be bittersweet without Ledger.

"Heath was very, very into it. He drew the floor plans and thought of the name, BrightSide, because it's on the bright side of McCarren Park," he said.

The bar's designer John McCormick, who created New York hotspot Beatrice Inn, where Ledger spent a lot of time, said Ledger had also wanted a table large enough to accommodate his family group.

"Heath specifically talked about having a place for him and his family to sit," said Mr McCormick.

"It was great working with Heath. He was the most unassuming guy."

The bar is scheduled to open towards the end of the American summer as a tribute to the star.

I know the going-ahead with the bar has been posted a while ago, but this gives more details, including a name change.

Britney Comeback Begins - Will Appear for Cover Story in OK! on Friday!



Paris Hilton took advantage of John McCain's ad citing her and Britney Spears, but Spears stayed strangely silent. It appears she had more pressing engagements to tend to.

Spears is said to have just completed her first exclusive sit-down interview and photo shoot in nearly two years. OK! magazine, the same publication that attempted to deliver Spears' previous exclusive agreement, is said to be running her tell-all in this week’s issue.

Who can forget just how disastrously the mag’s earlier encounter with Spears was? She took clothes from the set, and her dog did unspeakable things to a Zac Posen dress.

But this time around, a source says that things went quite well. Not only did Spears answer questions (with no couture dresses harmed in the process), but her dad, Jamie Spears, who’s never spoken at length with the media, was forthcoming about Spears’ relationship with her management, Kevin Federline and her sons. The issue is on stands nationwide on Friday.
