Quick Little Interview with Clive Owen about The Boys Are Back

Just one of the boys, that's Clive Owen the dad

Clive Owen was talking with great confidence about how, when he's not working, he is a hands-on dad to his two daughters.

I'm listening to him, then I pounce. OK, I say, do you know which aisle is which at Waitrose or Sainsbury's? He roars with laughter  -  then sets me an aisle challenge at Waitrose on the Holloway Road in North London.

I was chatting to Clive about his Oscar-worthy performance in Scott Hicks's great movie The Boys Are Back. Clive plays a father left to raise a young son when his wife dies of cancer. Later, they're joined by a lad from an earlier marriage.

So excited for this movie! I'm buying my tickets for the TIFF premiere of the movie tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll get to see Clive in person!

Selena Gomez: UNICEF Ambassador

Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place” star, Selena Gomez is headed to West Africa as an ambassador for UNICEF. The star may only be 17 years old, but she’s taken-on the challenge of reducing the daily amount of preventable deaths of children. Selena explained, “Every day 25,000 children die from preventable causes. I stand with UNICEF in the belief that we can change that number from 25,000 to zero. I know we can achieve this because every moment, UNICEF is on the ground providing children with the lifesaving assistance needed to ensure zero becomes a reality.” The trip makes her the youngest UNICEF ambassador to travel to West Africa.

The second season of FX's hit drama Sons of Anarchy is set to premiere this Tuesday, September 8th, at 10pm. Here is a preview of what viewers can expect from season two:

And here's an interview that PopEater did with Adam Arkin, who plays a white supremacist in the new season:

Talking 'Anarchy' With Adam Arkin


As if FX's addicting motorcycle gang drama 'Sons of Anarchy' wasn't intense enough already, the show will be upping the fireworks in its second season thanks to a major plot turn led by Adam Arkin (who plays Ethan Zobelle) and his white supremacist crew battling the 'Sons.' PopEater spoke to Adam exclusively about what working on such an intense show is like, how he handles being a racist for the show and how he grew up in the limelight of fame.

Is this one of the more intense roles you've ever played?
Well it's certainly one of the more intense shows I've been a part of. The intensity of the character is in keeping with the show, but to be completely honest the things I've had to do on camera have not felt a lot more intense than some of the other things I've had to do. He's a very controlled guy, so the story lines have been intense and the things my character is responsible for are intense, but what I've actually I don't know that they're the most enthralling kind of villains, but finding the counterpoint to whatever the tone in. In an environment like Sons where most of the protagonists are incredibly rough around the edges and capable of a certain kind of brutality, whoever is going to come into that environment and be a menace is going to have to change it up.

Michael Jackson Laid To Rest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Gladys Knight performed at the funeral, which was attended by Stevie Wonder, Macaulay Culkin, Elizabeth Taylor and more.

After an hour-and-a-half delay, Michael Jackson's funeral got under way around 8:30 p.m. PT on Thursday (September 3) at Forest Lawn cemetery in Glendale, California.

The Jackson family and close friends, who departed their Encino compound in a police-escorted caravan around 7:30 p.m. PT, arrived at Forest Lawn at about 8:10. Solo piano renditions of Michael's songs began to play as the family -- including Michael's three children, his sisters Janet and La Toya, brothers Jermaine and Tito, mother Katherine and father Joe -- took their seats.

Jackson's body was driven into Forest Lawn in a hearse shortly before 8:30 p.m. and arrived at the Great Mausoleum burial site minutes later. As soon as the hearse pulled up, the cemetery-provided camera feeds shut off, ending the public's up-close, audio-assisted view of the proceedings. Helicopter shots continued to provide somewhat grainy footage of the ceremony.

Celebrities in attendance included Macaulay Culkin, Mila Kunis, Stevie Wonder, ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley, Corey Feldman, Elizabeth Taylor, Barry Bonds, Chris Tucker, Gladys Knight and the Reverend Al Sharpton.

On either side of a flower-decorated dais set up in front of the approximately 200 seats stood two pictures of Jackson in a bright yellow shirt and thick gold belt. Helicopter cameras hovering overhead showed that Jackson's family placed his flower-covered casket in front of the audience. Without audio, however, it was impossible to discern exactly what was taking place at the service. But at least one attendee used the power of social networking to communicate details from Forest Lawn.

"I just spoke at the conclusion of tributes," Sharpton wrote on his Twitter account during the ceremony. "Gladys Knight sang her heart out. Now we prepare to lay him to rest."

CNN reported that Knight sang the Lord's Prayer, Presley was extremely emotional when the casket was brought in from the hearse, and Taylor's wheelchair had to be lifted up a series of steps after the various tributes when attendees entered the mausoleum.

The ceremony lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes and wrapped up at approximately 9:45. "Michael Jackson has been laid to rest," Sharpton tweeted around this time.

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson to Quit Hollywood

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson are planning to move away from Hollywood — because they want to give their baby son, Bronx Mowgli, a “normal” life.

Fall Out Boy rocker Pete says he wants to raise his boy away from the media spotlight.

“Once you have a kid it’s a little bit different. You’re more protective. You want them to have a normal life, or as normal as possible,” he said.

“We’re going to figure out moving somewhere that’s a little less (public). But we still got to be close enough where we can work.

“There’ll be too many paparazzi and you’ll get mobbed. You’re just trying to protect your wife or your kid. It’s just frustrating.”

Happy birthday you crazy cat!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One of the most well-known cartoons to ever come out of Asia, Doraemon (or the robotic cat) celebrates his 30th anniversary this year.

To mark the occasion Bandai is today releasing a way cool Doraemon robot that performs a multitude of way cool tasks.

The new Doraemon bot is primarily intended to interact with the user by voice messages, rolling its eyes, rotating its head, lighting LEDs in its nose and collar, and responding to a number of built-in sensors including a switch connected to its belly pocket. It can track objects, like your hand, as they move in front of its face, and also reacts when you pat its head, twist its arm, or pull its tail. Turn off the lights and it closes its eyes as if it is sleeping. It also reacts to time and temperature as well as verbal commands.

The robot stands 165mm tall and weighs in at 360g with the CR2032 battery installed.

While it's not as awesome as some of the other robots you might have read about on here, the new Doraemon robot is pretty impressive as far as consumer toys go. The price tag is a little steep at 31,500 yen (about US$340), but hardcore fans and collectors will certainly be eager to acquire their very own robot cat.

Fiore Kissed Ex-Husband Days Before Murder

Just four days before she was brutally murdered, Jasmine Fiore shared a romantic moment on a Southern California beach with a man who wasn't her husband, Ryan Jenkins.

The man in the photos is Michael Cardosi --Jasmine's ex-husband -- a man who had been locked up in prison for the last three years.

The photos were taken on the day he was released from the slammer -- Tuesday, August 11.

In the pics, the two can be seen hugging, smiling, touching and even sharing a kiss. In the photo below, you can see she's not wearing her wedding ring.

Cardosi's mother, Winnie Humphreys, tells us the two were ecstatic to see each other during the two-day reunion -- adding Jasmine had kept in touch with Michael throughout his stint in prison.

Cops believe Jasmine was murdered by her husband, Ryan Jenkins, in the early hours on Friday, August 14. Cardosi was sent back to the slammer on Sunday, August 16 for violating the terms of his probation.

Buena Park police told us they don't know if Jenkins ever found out about Jasmine's time on the beach with her ex -- but cops tell us "jealousy was the most obvious motive for this murder."

Murderer has Brain Cancer, Still Despicable

One of the women convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate 40 years ago and now terminally ill denied parole for the 13th time.

A photo taken of Miss Susan Atkins, convicted mass murderer, and once a member of the Charles Manson 'family'. She stands behind the fenced-in women's prison on August 20, 1981. She got married to self-described millionaire Donald Lee Baisure on September 2, 1981 in Frontera, CA. He turned out not be a millionaire at all and had been married 35 times already. She had the marriage annuled. Photo Source: UPI

For the second time in as many years, a state parole board voted unanimously Wednesday to deny one of Charles Manson's fiercest followers her request for a "compassionate release" so that she can die at home.

Convicted murderer Susan Atkins, 61, is terminally ill with cancer and has only months to live, doctors say. The issue of mercy has long haunted Atkins. Nearly 40 years ago, actress Sharon Tate begged the knife-wielding Atkins to spare her life and that of her unborn child.

"She asked me to let her baby live," Atkins told parole officials in 1993. "I told her I didn't have mercy for her."

On Wednesday night, the parole board meeting at the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla had little mercy for Atkins, who slept on a gurney for much of a hearing that began in the early afternoon.

It was the same result as last year when, despite the presence of a number of supporters, and the approval of the prosecutor who put her behind bars, the 12-member California Board of Parole unanimously voted to deny Atkins' release.

I disagree with Bugliosi, she has shown no mercy or remorse. She is not rehabilitated. Her sentence was also life without parole. Would you release Charles Manson if he were ill? No. Why would you release Atkins?

The Boys of Fame, Remember Their Names

Fame stars Paul Iacono, Collin Pennie, Asher Book, Walter Perez and Paul McGill are featured in a hot new spread for the upcoming issue of V Magazine.

Here’s what T. Cole Rachel writes for the mag: “Twenty-four-year-old director and former music video choreographer Kevin Tancharoen’s Fame update eschews the urban grittiness of [Alan Parker's] 1980 original in favor of a more stylized, music-video approach. The visual aesthetic may have evolved to Britney Spears proportions, but the delicious teen angst remains. The film features an all new cast of young hopefuls chasing their dreams (and each other) at a performing arts high school in New York City. Encouraged by a staff of tough but well-meaning teachers (played this time around by the likes of Bebe Neuwirth, Megan Mullally, and Kelsey Grammer), hopes are dashed, hearts are broken, and a few showbiz dreams are ultimately realized. ”

Salma Hayek Is Better Than You

Entitled Actress With Thick Accent Has Tantrum @ Restaurant

How many have you been out to eat? Show of hands? Yes, it looks like everyone. Now, when I go to a restaurant, there are what I like to call tables. Most of the tables have chairs, although the place I most prefer to sit has one really long table and lots of stools. No matter where you choose to sit at the restaurant, there is one law that can't be changed. There are a finite number of tables that can be squeezed into the restaurant and when those are full you have to do something called waiting.

Apparently however, Salma Hayek missed this day of math class and found herself at Chateau Marmont's restaurant yesterday when their finite supply of tables and chairs were all comfortably occupied. So, what did Salma do? According to Radar, Salma freaked the hell out and yelled in Spanish and English at the hostess because there wasn't a table ready for Salma. Salma's friends tried to calm her down, but Salma just kept right at it and didn't stop until some customers had finished their meal and a table opened up.

I'm guessing Salma wanted the hostess to go to a table and forcibly eject someone because when there are no seats there are no seats. This wasn't someone pretending there were no seats. There actually were not any. I'm thankful her kid wasn't there to see it, but will probably end up with the same sense of entitlement if mom can't even realize there was no room for her to sit down.

Jason Bateman, Kristen Wiig, Mila Kunis, David Koechner, Ben Affleck and their director (Mike Judge, creator of "Office Space" and TV's "King of the Hill") have violated the trust of their respective fan bases by participating in this extremely dismal project. "Extract" is a deflated balloon, a sour grape, a real Eeyore of a movie.

Craig Ferguson Interviews Princess Leia; Dubs This Week 'Jason Ritter Week'

It started out as a standard talk-show incident. Jason Ritter was booked as a guest on Tuesday night’s The Late Late Show, but Craig Ferguson (now in high-def and bracingly bitter about it!) got to yakking too long with Quentin Tarantino. Certainly, if there’s a guest who’ll keep you yakking — or being yakked at — it’s the Inglourious Basterd himself.

So Ferguson promised Ritter would be on the next night, Wednesday. Wednesday night: oops, nope. So enthralled by the Betty-Boop charms of Mila Kunis, Craig didn’t have time for Ritter.

By now he was making jokes about having to wear the same tie again, and we talk-show faithful know that what really happened is that Ferguson taped the Ritter interview earlier in the week, and he and his producers were waiting for the proper length segment to shoehorn it in.

But last night: Whoops! Got talking to Carrie Fisher too long about electro-shock therapy and such, and even though Craig had by now dubbed this “Jason Ritter Week”… no Jason. Check out Carrie Fisher’s segment, by the way; quite hilarious:

So tonight’s the last night to get Jason Ritter on the air this week. Will it happen? Personally, and I like Ritter, I think this dandy joke could go on for quite a while. And I like that thin black tie Ferguson has to wear to maintain the amusement.

Black Ranger Pleads "Not Guilty" For DUI

According to TMZ, "Lawyers for Walter Jones -- the dude who donned black spandex to fight Rita Repulsa as "Zack Taylor" back in the day -- were in an Alabama court yesterday to enter the plea" of not guilty. And it turns out, he wasn't even drunk!

Jones was making an appearance at a convention in Alabama July 24-26, and according to the convention's chairperson Lauren Collen, he was pulled over Sunday morning for "failure to dim headlights".

Then the officer "forced a very competent and alert (obviously not drunk) Walter to perform the various field sobriety tests. For those that don’t know, those tests consist of testing your balance, awareness, and even a breathalyzer (which checks how much alcohol is in your system). Walter passed all of those tests with flying colors, and yet he was still handcuffed," said Collen.

A trial has been set for mid-November.

Chris Brown: I'm Ready for Counseling

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
While Chris Brown vows he'll abide by all the conditions of his recent sentencing for assaulting Rihanna – including six months of community labor and five years' probation – he's eager to get the most out of the court-ordered counseling and anger-management classes.

"I want to understand my feelings," Brown, 20, tells PEOPLE. "I want to find out what really transpired as far as me that night. Sometimes when you're young you don't know how to express [your emotions], so I think it actually would be helpful to talk to a counselor or to somebody who has an expertise in what those [feelings] are."

According to Brown's Aug. 5 probation review, the R&B singer "has already looked into some domestic violence programs, showing that he is taking some initiatives to address this issue."

Explains Brown: "I wanted to take the counseling upon myself and … just talk to someone. I just need to talk to someone. I wanted to understand the problem at hand."

Brown tells PEOPLE he doesn’t think he has an "anger problem," but says he's keeping an open mind. "If I do, I will work with my counselor and hopefully channel my anger into something like dancing," says Brown, who insists he'll never let himself lose control again. "I don't think I would get that mad again. I want to be a man, so I have to be more responsible .... I'd rather walk away."

Kim Kardashian: I'm Planning Kourtney's Baby Shower

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kim Kardashian is a few months away from being an auntie and she already has babies on her mind!

Kim accompanied sister Kourtney Kardashian on a little baby shopping spree today where she realized she's ready for a baby herself!

"Kourtney and I went baby shopping last week! It's really fun but we you have to stay neutral when you're shopping for a baby and you don't know what the sex of the baby is!...I want Kourt and Scott to find out already!! I want a baby!!!! OK, so maybe not right now, but I can't wait to be an aunt!," Kim wrote on her blog.

Earlier this week Kim told Hollyscoop exclusively that she's planning Kourtney's baby shower and the family is overjoyed about the latest addition to the Kardashian clan.

"There's the baby shower I have to plan, the baby is coming. All this stuff is going to take so much time and it's going to be exciting at the same time," Kim told Hollyscoop.

She added, "And at the same time I have to deal with Kourtney's mood swings. I was at Dash today and filming something for Jay Leno and she walked in with her big attitude and we were taking up too much time. It's really cute cause we're like, 'oh get over it'."

"She's a really cute pregnant girl. It's just a big belly, but we're just so excited to share this experience,"
she added.

When asked what kind of cravings Kourtney has been having Kim revealed that the only abnormal thing is that she only craves healthy food. "She really just wants to eat healthy food. She just only craves healthy food...I gotta get pregnant," Kim joked.

Too bad things didn't work out with Kim and Reggie, they would have the cutest little babies together. Something tells us they're not quite over yet, so not all hope is lost.

Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham: Expecting Fourth Child

The couple was married during a private Catholic ceremony in Beverly Hills on August 1st, and already are the proud parents of Ella Rae, 5, Michael, 3, and Brendan Joseph, 11.

Meanwhile, Walhberg won’t deny that Durham and his children allowed him to get rid of his bad boy image.

“We continue to grow in our relationship,” Wahlberg told Us magazine last July. “I was not prepared to be married … when I was 20 or 30. Committing to making it work and all the other things that go into building a solid foundation is where I’m at now.”

And where he goes, the whole crew goes. “My family travels with me when I work most of the time or I go back and forth on the weekends. I’ve been pretty consistent about just making phone calls in the morning and then chasing the kids around in the afternoon.”

Conspiracy Theorist Convinces Neil Armstrong Moon Landing Was Faked

LEBANON, OHIO—Apollo 11 mission commander and famed astronaut Neil Armstrong shocked reporters at a press conference Monday, announcing he had been convinced that his historic first step on the moon was part of an elaborate hoax orchestrated by the United States government.

According to Armstrong, he was forced to reconsider every single detail of the monumental journey after watching a few persuasive YouTube videos, and reading several blog posts on conspiracy theorist Ralph Coleman's website,

"It only took a few hastily written paragraphs published by this passionate denier of mankind's so-called 'greatest technological achievement' for me to realize I had been living a lie, " said a visibly emotional Armstrong, addressing reporters at his home. "It has become painfully clear to me that on July 20, 1969, the Lunar Module under the control of my crew did not in fact travel 250,000 miles over eight days, touch down on the moon, and perform various experiments, ushering in a new era for humanity. Instead, the entire thing was filmed on a soundstage, most likely in New Mexico."

"This is the only logical interpretation of the numerous inconsistencies in the grainy, 40-year-old footage," Armstrong added.

Although Armstrong said he "could have sworn" he felt the effects of zero gravity while soaring out of the Earth's atmosphere and through space, he now believed his memory must be flawed. He also admitted feeling "ashamed" that he had failed to notice the rippling of the American flag he and Buzz Aldrin planted on the surface, blaming his lack of awareness on the bulkiness of the spacesuit and his excitement about traveling to the "moon."

"That rippling is not possible in the vacuum of space," Armstrong said. "It must have been the wind from an air-conditioning duct that I didn't recognize because you can't hear a damn thing inside those helmets."

"This is all just common sense, people," he added. "It's the moon. You can't land on the moon."

In a symbolic display of his newfound skepticism, Armstrong then grabbed a collection of moon rocks he had kept as souvenirs and dramatically dumped them into a trash can.

One of the main arguments posited on Coleman's website—that America could not, in 1969, have realistically possessed the technological capabilities needed to put a man on the moon—was reportedly one of the first things to cause the legendary astronaut a pang of doubt. Despite having spent thousands of hours training for the historic mission under the guidance of the world's top scientists, technicians, and pilots, Armstrong said he knew the conspiracy theories were true after learning that website author Coleman was "quite the engineering buff."

"Yes, at the time I thought those thousands of NASA employees were working round the clock for the same incredible goal, but if anyone would know what was really going on, it would be Ralph Coleman," Armstrong said of the 31-year-old part-time librarian's assistant. "He knows a lot more about faked moon landings than I ever could. He's been researching the subject on the Internet for years."

"Literally years," he added.

Addressing another inconsistency brought to light by OmissionControl, Armstrong explained he was probably so focused on piloting the lunar module that he failed to notice that one of the moon rocks visible in footage of the landing appears to have the letter 'C' stamped on it. An emotional Armstrong said that the only possible explanation for this detail was that the rock actually came from NASA's prop department.

"They forgot to turn it over," Armstrong said, removing his eyeglasses to wipe away tears. "Those lying bastards at NASA went through all the trouble to fake the moon landing, but they forgot to turn over one little prop rock. And now the whole damn thing's blowing up in their faces."

Although Armstrong initially questioned why the U.S. would attempt such an elaborate cover-up, he cited one overarching explanation provided by Coleman: that it was a ploy to defeat the Soviet Union and fulfill the Illuminati's plan to unify the world's banks and control the dissemination of information.

"Just ask Ralph Coleman," Armstrong said. "He'll answer any questions you have."

To conclude the press conference, Armstrong showed reporters footage of his first steps on the moon to demonstrate that the most daming evidence was "right under our noses." Speeding up the tape and replaying the graceful moonwalk several times in a row, Armstrong explained that the iconic images of humanity's triumphant dance with the cosmos was actually just a film of him walking backwards, slowed down, and played in reverse.

"What other explanation could there be?" Armstrong asked. "It's all right here. Everything is all right here if you'd just open your damn eyes and see!"

Devil's Film Spoofs Reality TV with Jon & Kate Fuck Eight

Devil’s Film is preparing to roll out a new spoof of a mainstream reality TV show with its hardcore DVD, Jon & Kate Fuck Eight.

The parody is based on the notorious couple Jon & Kate Gosselin, who star in TLC’s “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” with their sextuplets and twins. The couple recently split up, creating plenty of material for tabloid news outlets.

Devil’s Film sales manager Steve Volponi said the movie was written with the angle that “the grass is always greener on the other side.”

“In our movie they go to marriage counseling and come out with the suggestion that maybe they should go out there and bang other people, so they do and then it turns out that after they sow their wild oats that they are meant to be together,” he said. “It’ll probably be true to life.

"Right now with the timing of it—they’re on TV every three minutes—I think this movie is going to be huge.”

Devil’s recently released two other parodies, Cocktomom and This Isn’t Big Love XXX.

“More people know about Jon and Kate than have HBO,” Volponi reasoned. “Everybody we tell the name of the title to has an immediate chuckle. I think at the retail stores it will be on the tip of everyone’s tongue.”

Riley Evans stars at Kate and Frankie Young plays Jon in the feature, which also includes Amy Starz, Evie Delatosso, Kristy West, Ashton Pierce, Ralph Long, Jenner and Alex Gonz.

The DVD will hit the streets on Sept. 14.

Madonna ‘Takes A Bow’ On Record-Smashing ‘Sticky & Sweet’ Tour

Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet” Tour made history as it wrapped up last night with two final shows in Tel Aviv, Israel at Yehoshua Gardens (HaYarkon Park, September 1 and 2). The Material Girl more than lives up to her name, as her tour becomes the most successful tour ever by a solo artist. After playing 85 shows since its launch in August 2008, Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet” has drawn more than 3.5 million fans in 32 countries and has grossed $408 million, it was announced today by Live Nation, the tour’s global producer. “Sticky & Sweet” is also the second highest grossing tour of all time.

Erin Andrews Returns to Work.

Tonight, you may have noticed, marked the return of blessed college football, and the return of sideline favorite Erin Andrews to broadcast television for the first time since her unwitting appearance on that loathsome peephole video flew around the Web last month. The game? Largely uneventful, to put it mildly. Andrews' appearance? Largely uneventful, to put it mildly.

She showed up without fanfare, without undue comment, and carried on her typical duties with all her characteristic poise and professionalism. The Worldwide Leader's college football machine whirred on without a blip as she delivered injury reports and chased a recalcitrant Steve Spurrier down the sideline before and after the game.

So that puts this whole thing to rest, right? Andrews is back, and she's going back to work. The cameras didn't pick up any lewd signs or any catcalls from leering frat boys in the student section. Nobody at home had any reason to feel all creepy. Football returns, and we're going back to work ourselves. Fin.

(And from the "the more things change" department, ESPN stylists continue to display their utter hatred for their on-air talent, swaddling Andrews in an inexplicable scarf surpassed for hideousness only by the Gamecock and Wolfpack offenses. Like the woman hasn't been through enough this summer.)

Welcome back, EA. Game on.

(You make me want to vote Republican)

The delightfully pretty and funny Kristen Wiig stars in this trailer for One Night Only, which is unfortunately the hipsteriest movie that ever hipstered.

It’s produced by Last Pictures, a New York-based company that usually specializes in short films, and is described as “a romantic drama about two couples shifting sexual dynamics over one night in a folk music bar.”

Ooof. Man, I want to knock this trailer off its stupid fixed gear bicycle so bad, but chances are its father is a lawyer. The entire trailer consists of two context-free throwaway conversations, followed by a credits montage that takes up three-fourths of the trailer, set to a song by Bob Dylan’s unemployed nephew.

Seriously, that has got to be a candidate for the most annoying goddamned song in history. “This here’s a foreign song I learned in Utah.” What? “Hey, y’all, I never learned a skill or how to relate to people, so I try to trick ‘em into confusin’ pointlessness for art. Here it go…” Then he starts singing the stuttery folk version of Hava Nagila and eventually starts yodelling. I can’t believe I didn’t make that up. PLEASE KILL YOURSELF. This is more offensive than Neo-Nazi death metal.

termination fee: worth more than your life

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Marvel Entertainment Inc would have to pay the Walt Disney Co a termination fee of $140 million if it terminates a proposed merger with Disney, according to a securities filing on Friday.

The $4 billion merger agreement, announced on Monday, contains termination rights for Disney and Marvel, including Marvel's right to stop the merger to pursue a "superior deal," the Securities and Exchange Commission filing by Marvel said.

Marvel has agreed, however, not to solicit other merger offers, the filing said. It may be required to pay Disney a termination fee of $140 million under "specified circumstances," the filing said.

The agreement also amends Marvel Chief Executive Isaac Perlmutter's employment contract to provide that Perlmutter could not resign for "good reason" over a change in his duties and still collect severance benefits, the filing says.

Under the proposed merger agreement Perlmutter will report to Disney chief executive Bob Iger.

If the merger is completed, Perlmutter would receive 100 percent of a planned 2009 bonus, or about $4.3 million, the filing said.

Disney executives said earlier this week they expect the deal to close by the end of the year.


‘The Social Network’ Casting Rumors


Well it was bound to happen more sooner than later: director David Fincher and company have already started the casting process for their Facebook movie, The Social Network. I’m telling you this project is getting passed quicker than a laxative coated banana through a monkey.

Don’t believe me? Consider this: It was just August 11th that Screen Rant reported on the idea of The Social Network movie. Two weeks later on August 25th, we reported that producer Kevin Spacey had alreadyconfirmed a budget of $45 million and a start date of this October.


First Showing has received a good word from their friend Carson Reeves of Script Shadow via his Facebook page in regards to some casting rumors for The Social Network. According to Reeves, upcoming zombie killer, Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland), will most likely snag the lead role of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg; while former N’Sync pretty boy, turned solo artist, turned “actor,” Justin Timberlake, will portray Napster founder Sean Parker. Rounding out the cast as Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin should be Andrew Garfield (who you can see as Anton in the upcoming movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.)

I know everyone is probably like "WTF??? A movie about Facebook!? Stupidest idea EVER, I'd rather watch Twatlight than that!" But apparently the script is really good, and it's Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher, sooooo.... *shrug*

Preview of Stellan and Alexander Skarsgard in Metropia

Metropia takes place in a not-so-distant future. The world is running out of oil and the undergrounds have been connected into a gigantic subway network beneath Europe.

Whenever Roger from Stockholm (Vincent Gallo) enters this system he hears a stranger’s voice in his head. He looks to the mysterious Nina (Juliette Lewis) to help him escape the disturbing web of the Metro, but the farther they travel, the deeper he’s involved in a dark conspiracy.

The film premiered on September 3rd at the Venice Film Festival

Could Tom Cruise Have Saved Dr. Parnassus (and Vice Versa)?

It's probably best to consider the free-speaking source on this one, but Terry Gilliam has apparently told Total Film magazine that Tom Cruise had asked, and was turned down, for one of the three roles in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus that opened up following Heath Ledger's death last January: "I'm not sure if it was Tom or his agent [who put Cruise forward for the role]. I know there was a period when Tom's agents were keen. The thing is, I was only interested in people who were friends of Heath. Simple as that. I wanted to keep it in the family."

We're still not clear on just how well Jude Law, Colin Farrell, and Johnny Depp, who ultimately took the roles, actually knew Ledger, but whatever — isn't it sort of too bad that Gilliam turned down Cruise? Regardless of how the final product would've turned out (surely not drastically different than it did without him), wouldn't the involvement of another megastar — one who runs his own damn movie studio, for God's sake! — have helped a little? Despite doom-y predictions, his Valkyrie was even a hit! If Cruise had starred in Parnassus, would the film have still languished for months this year without a distributor, accumulating bad buzz the whole time, only to maybe get picked up by Sony Pictures Classics? We doubt it. (As far as we can tell, the previously announced deal hasn't yet been finalized, and there has been no official word on an American release date.)

Come on, Terry, we know he's weird and was probably just trying to rehabilitate his couch-jumping image, but if Tom Cruise asks to be in one of your movies, you should always say yes.

Farrell, Murphy & Byrne To Star In ‘At Swim Two Birds’

Irish trio Colin Farrell, Cillian Murphy and Gabriel Byrne have joined the cast of the coming-of-age tale At Swim-Two-Birds for Parallel Pictures. Brendan Gleeson will direct the film and also co star. Farrell, Murphy and Byrne have all worked with Gleeson before, most recently Gleeson and Farrell starred in the brilliant little gem, In Bruges.

An adaptation of Irish author Flann O’Brien’s seminal metaphysical novel, At Swim-Two-Birds follows a 19-year-old student who sees the fictional characters in the play he’s writing intertwining with the people in his life. The plot operates on many levels, incorporating plots within plots and includes elements of farce, satire and fantasy.

The film will mark the directorial debut of actor veteran Irish actor Brendan Gleeson. It sounds like a very ambitious project and it will certainly be interesting to see how this actor turned director handles his role on the opposite side of the camera. The question is, will this actors directorial debut be of Ben Affleck goodness (Gone Baby Gone) or of Ed Norton badness (Keeping the Faith).
Super yay for Colin, and Brendan working together again!!! They are awesome.

SNL Fires Micheala Watkins and Casey Wilson

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sources outside the show, and backed up by anonymous sources from within 30 Rock, have informed me that Michaela Watkins and Casey Wilson have been let go from Saturday Night Live and won't be returning this season (although they may have participated in some pre-taped ad parodies and digital shorts). They're no longer listed in specific office protocol. Michaela just confirmed this to me herself. So it looks as though Lorne Michaels hired Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad not as additional females to the cast (as SNL follower Rachel Sklar over at Mediaite would have hoped), but rather to replace Watkins and Wilson.

The 19-year-old Canadian actress recently told the LA Times show much she loves Venice beach. She said, “I’d drag a friend to yoga and then to [Venice] beach. I just love it there, and the fact that it’s almost always good beach weather. The one beach we had in Toronto was dirty and I don’t think you were allowed to go into the water because you probably would have grown a third arm. And the weather can be pretty chaotic, too. Here, it’s just wonderful. I like the Venice boardwalk because of all the characters you find. And there’s always great snacky foods around.”Collapse )

Dressed in nude stockings and suspenders and reclining on a diving board looking every inch the Hollywood star, it's hard to imagine Victoria Beckham has any hang-ups at all.

The former Spice Girl has a hint of Audrey Hepburn about her in the photoshoot, taken for Elle magazine's subscriber cover in the U.S.

But the 35-year-old has revealed that she is insecure and that her shyness is the reason for her near-constant pout.

She said: 'I do have my insecurities. Maybe that is why I look a little bit serious.

'The kind of person who's going to stand on the red carpet and love the attention and have the big grin - I'm just not like that.

'I want to get in there, do what I've got to do, and get home to my kids.'

Jade Goody's Husband, Jack Tweed, Arrested For Alleged Rape

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jack Tweed was recalled to prison last night after being arrested by police investigating the 'seriously degrading' rape of a teenage girl.

Jade Goody's widower, 22, was questioned by detectives after a 19-year-old claimed that he had attacked her at his East London home while drunk.

The arrest prompted prison chiefs to demand that Tweed be put back behind bars because he was in breach of conditions imposed following an earlier offence.

He was released in January, after serving a fraction of an 18-month sentence for beating a 16-year-old boy with a golf club, with a requirement that he address an alcohol problem.

The 19-year-old girl who accused Tweed of rape was among a group of girls he had invited back to his rented bachelor pad after meeting them at a London nightclub.

Tweed has never been far from controversy following Miss Goody's death aged 27 in March from cervical cancer. He was pictured partying in nightclubs across London just weeks after her funeral.

The Beatles are amazing; EW acknowledges this fact

This Week's Cover: The Beatles Invade Again!

With The Beatles: Rock Band and reissues of all their albums hitting stores Sept. 9, it’s time for another Beatles revolution. This week’s Entertainment Weekly offers fans our guide to what’s new — as well as the 50 best songs the world’s greatest band ever wrote and a gallery of rare behind-the-scenes photographs.

Do you find yourself occasionally slipping into a Liverpudlian accent? Hankering after a pair of granny glasses? Arguing with your friends about the best Beatles songs of all time? Then you’ve got a condition called Beatlemania, and if you don’t want it to get worse, then stay in bed on Sept. 9: The eyes and ears of the world will once again be on the Beatles — and now their hands and larynxes will be able to join them.The reissues alone would be huge news, since the band’s albums haven’t been upgraded since their original CD release in the late ’80s. But if you’ve ever fantasized about actually playing with the Beatles, then Rock Band is equally drool-worthy. This installment of the massively popular franchise (more than $1 billion in sales and counting) lets you jam along with 45 tracks from all stages of the group’s career. It also offers previously unseen photos and never-heard audio clips of the quartet talking in the studio. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison were intimately involved in putting it all together. “It’s very cool,” McCartney enthused to EW earlier this year. Now Rock Band seems set to turn an even younger generation on to the band. “I see people playing it and they look…completely funny,” says McCartney. “But I like the idea that it introduces kids to music.” Maybe Sept. 9, 2009, will soon be known as the day that the biggest band of the 20th century also became the biggest of the 21st.

Sonique has lost her hair after months of chemotherapy sessions after discovering she had breast cancer in June. She underwent surgery but the disease had spread to the lymph nodes under her arms.

But as she left The Collection restaurant in Chelsea last night,the odd pairing of young DJ and the veteran actor clearly left her with a smile on her face.

The Wrestler actor told waiting photographers that Sonique is a 'positive young lady'. Today her publicist said she is half way through her chemotherapy treatment.

Downey Jr, Lohan, Richie come out for DJ AM memorial

While Michael Jackson was being buried in a lavish ceremony across town, friends, family and fans paid a final tribute to DJ AM (born Adam Goldstein) on Thursday night at the Hollywood Palladium, less than one week after the popular celebrity DJ was found dead in his New York apartment of an apparent drug overdose.

According to People, hundreds of invited guests and fans turned out to remember AM, 36, who was buried on Wednesday, among them former fiancée Nicole Richie and friends Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart and Robert Downey Jr. E! Online reported that the VIPs also included Dr. Drew Pinsky, Tom Arnold, Jon Favreau and Sugar Ray singer Mark McGrath.

"He was my soulmate and now he is my soul," girlfriend Hayley Wood said during the two-and-a-half-hour memorial. "He is my amazing grace."

Because of the anonymity requested by organizers to honor the structure of a 12-step meeting, no press was allowed into the event, and few details have emerged about what was said inside.

Radar Online reported that the 3,500 attendees also included John Mayer and that the event was organized by Hollywood club promoter Brent Bolthouse. While fans reportedly scrambled to get a seat in the venue, an eyewitness described the crowd as "very hip and eclectic," with some in T-shirts and jeans and others in black suits. "It was packed, though. You could tell how well loved he was," the witness told the site. "It was a very somber and sad crowd."

The Palladium was a fitting place for AM's final memorial, as it was the first venue he performed in following the South Carolina plane crash he and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker survived last September.

The New York City medical examiner's office has not yet determined a cause of death and is conducting further toxicology tests, but there were several reports from unnamed sources earlier this week that AM had more than half a dozen undigested OxyContin pills in his stomach and one in his mouth when police found him face down on his bed in his barricaded Soho apartment.


Demi Moore says Perez Hilton promotes child pornography

Celebrity Feud Alert! There’s all kinds of Hell breaking loose between Demi Moore and gossip chatterbox Perez Hilton on Twitter.

Moore has waged war on Perez for what she claims are his persistent exploitative posts sexualizing her 15-year-old daughter, Tallulah Willis.

One of the pictures is located on Los Angeles nightlife photo blog The Cobra Snake and showed Tallulah with several buttons on her top open, while another picture showed the teen hugging her famous dad, Bruce Willis, in denim mini-shorts.

Demi was incensed.

“Anyone who advertises follows or supports Perez supports violating child pornography laws!” she Tweeted.

“Clearly Perez Hilton isn’t taking violating child pornography laws very seriously. He might not but there are alot of people who do!” a furious Demi wrote in a Tweet Thursday afternoon. “MrsKutcher” later posed this question to readers: “Let me ask all of you, what is it called when someone is telling people to look and focus on a child’s ‘boobs & ass’ while providing photos?
