Leonardo DiCaprio On The Superheroes He Nearly Played!

Image and video hosting by <br />TinyPic

"I never screen-tested,"
the actor said in an interview with Shortlist after revealing that he was in talks to play Robin
. "I had a meeting with Joel Schumacher. It was just one meeting and, no, I didn't end up doing it...As I recall I took the meeting, but didn't want to play the role. Joel Schumacher is a very talented director but I don't think I was ready for anything like that."

DiCaprio was also in talks to play Anakin Skywalker in the recent Star Wars prequels but said that, "he didn't feel ready to take that dive" indicating he wasn't enthusiastic about signing up for a big franchise movie.

Perhaps most surprisingly, the actor also confessed that he had the chance to take the lead role of Peter Parker in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man back in 2002, "That was another one of those situations, similar to Robin, where I didn't feel ready to put on that suit yet. They got in touch with me."

As for whether he'd ever be willing to play a superhero the actor added, "You never know. You never know. They're getting better and better as far as complex characters in these movies. I haven't yet. But no, I don't rule out anything."

Conservative bloggers stand by Mel Gibson's side

Mel Gibson's defense: conservative bloggers defend actor after rant against ex Oksana Grigorieva

Not everyone hates Mel.

Despite his violent, expletive-laden, frothy-mouthed eruption at his former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, Mel Gibson still has some defenders: conservative bloggers.

While many of the right-leaning pundits and evangelical Christian leaders who defended the disgraced actor after his outburst of anti-Semitic slurs in 2006 have remained hush-hush on Gibson's latest racist and sexist tirade, a few devotees are sticking with him, the Daily Beast reported.

Columnist for the National Review, John Derbyshire, who backed the "Braveheart" star after the 2006 rants saying, "The guy was drunk, for heaven's sake," said he sympathized with Gibson.

"Clearly Mel's a guy who's deeply unhappy some of the time and finds relationships with women difficult," Derbyshire told the website. He then blamed the outburst on Grigorieva who Gibson, on tape, said needed "a f---ing bat in the side of the head."

'Jar of Hearts' singer Christina Perri on getting her break from 'So You Think You Can dance': A Music Q&A




Three weeks ago, an unknown, unsigned 23 year old café employee named Christina Perri found her life changed by So You Think You Can Dance — without dancing a step. Billy Bell and Kathryn McCormick danced to Perri’s mournful “Jar of Hearts” on the June 30th telecast, and after overwhelming response on the singer-songwriter’s MySpace, the ballad was rushed to iTunes, where it’s since sold more than 100,000 copies. Perri’s already gone to New York to meet with record labels and perform on the CBS Early Show. Tonight, she’ll sing “Jar of Hearts” live on SYTYCD. We caught up with the Philly native to talk about what she calls her “rollercoaster ride.”

Entertainment Weekly: Tell me the story of how this happened. You were having the worst day ever at your café job?


Christina Perri: Yes. The Friday before the show, I was having the worst day ever at work. I was getting yelled at, and there were terrible things happening, almost to where I thought I was in some show. I’m like, “Okay, this isn’t real.” I quit in my head like 17 times. I imagined this big, grandiose storming into the office and quitting. Which I didn’t do. But I got in my car at the end of the shift, and was really defeated. And I got the call that they’re using the song on that Wednesday’s episode. Can I just go backwards a second? Just about ten days or so before that happened is when my best friend on the planet, Keltie Colleen, sent my song to [SYTYCD choreographer] Stacey Tookey and was like, “Hey, I think this song would be great on your show.” Stacey and Keltie went to school together in Canada, and they’re good friends. Stacey heard the [rough demo] and loved it, but was like, “I gotta put you through to my producers, so don’t get your hopes up.” So it was like this weird kind of in-between stage where we didn’t know what was going to happen, but we thought, “Oh, we should probably record the song now.”

I love that she sounds so down to earth and funny. I always got angsty vibes from this song but Im happy to see that it seems she aint the typical angry rocker-chick.

Corin Tucker album details and tour dates

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES



Former Sleater-Kinney frontwoman Corin Tucker is now a stay-at-home mom with two kids, a far cry from the Riot Grrrl she once was with her old band mates. As we previously reported, her solo debut seeks to tell some good stories about ghosts, sadness, reinvention and rebirth. Expect the bridge between punk rock to “middle-age mom” to be crossed on her debut record now, titled 1,000 Years (via Pitchfork).

As the album art work implies, Tucker is releasing it under The Corin Tucker Band most likely because Seth Lorinczi of The Golden Bears and Sara Lund of Hungry Ghost and Unwound lent their talents to the album on the bass and drums, respectively. Check out the tracklist below.

Corin will also embark on a few west coast dates in support of the album, as well as Boston, New York, Philly, and DC dates later in October. West coast dates are onsale now and tickets for the east coast dates go on sale this Saturday the 17th at Ticketmaster.com. All dates are listed below.

1,000 Years is out October 5th via Kill Rock Stars

Corin Tucker 2010 Tour Dates:

Miley Cyrus talks about dislike of Twilight again



Miley Cyrus is possibly the only person who is not being swept up in the ‘Twilight’ obsession, despite sharing a number of fans with the movie series.

Cyrus was noted as saying, “I’d rather keep the dead and revolting things like vampires and werewolves out of my life,” reports DailyFreshNews. Apparently, the singer/actress has refused to see any of the films that are aimed at her fans as well.

At least all the young girls across the country can be relieved that she probably won’t be going after Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner anytime soon.

Is the M.I.A. backlash a result of truffle fry angst or crummy songs?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's been a whiplashing week for M.I.A. Her new album /\/\/\Y/\ was released on Tuesday to lukewarm reviews. Bummer. But the Brit rapper bounced back that very evening with a captivating performance of "Born Free" on Letterman. Stunner!

These spikes and crashes are becoming the norm for Maya Arulpragasam, who is still brushing the dirt off her shoulders from a now-infamous, not-so-flattering New York Times Magazine profile. Now fans are wondering: Did that profile color critics' reviews of the album? Wednesday, Questlove of the Roots tweeted, "damn. didn't know M.I.A.'s NYT's antics came at a price." Then he linked followers to the album's lackluster (but still not horrible!) score on Metacritic.

For our weekly Taking sides post, Click Track's contributors wrestle with the following: Are music critics transposing their post-New-York-Times-Magazine-profile-angst into their assessment of M.I.A.'s new album? Or is "Maya" just a crummy batch of songs?

Vote in our poll below, and read our thoughts after the jump. (i thought i'd copy their poll for ONTD lol)

Are music journos backlashing against M.I.A. in their reviews of "Maya?"

Yes. Critics = haters.

No. The album sucks.

I am Cameron's Inflamed Sense of Rejection

The “Ferris Bueller Fight Club Theory” (#4 in the article posted on ONTD)has been floating around the film world for a while now. The idea is—what if Cameron actually imagined Ferris Bueller as an extension of himself to fight his dull existence and deal with his love for Sloane? The way Edward Norton unknowingly created Tyler Durden in “Fight Club”? Interesting, no? Well, some fine web troller decided to make a trailer for the theory by doctoring clips from everyone’s ‘80s favorite. And it turned out awesomely creepy. Enjoy!

Not everyone has to get married to be happy


Dannii Minogue: Not everyone has to get married to be happy

Dannii Minogue has played down suggestions she's to tie the knot with boyfriend Kris Smith.

The X Factor judge says she's happy with the way things are with the rugby hunk. 'Not everyone has to get married and have children to be happy!' says Dannii.

'You just have to see what life gives you.'

Dannii divorced actor Julian McMahon in 1995 after less than 2 years of marriage and she was also engaged to Formula 1 driver Jacques Villeneuve. The 38-year-old says it's hard to maintain that newlywed bliss. 'I've been married before,' says Dannii.

'I blame my parents - they've been married forever and have the best relationship and we all have too much to live up to.'

Dannii gave birth to son Ethan Edward Smith at the Royal Women's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia, earlier this month.

Chace Crawford Is Too Pretty To Hold His Own Umbrella

Chace Crawford is as fragile as a baby unicorn's first coo and as precious as a bunny in a bubble bath, so you can't expect him to hold his own umbrella! Besides, it's impossible for Chace to hold his own umbrella. He might smudge his freshly polished nails or smear the foundation on his palms. Blake Lively and Leighton Meester can hold their own umbrellas, because their ancestors were vikings or miners or some shit. They are built for hard labor, but not Chace.

Fun Fact: Chace's umbrella was originally white, but he accidentally farted and his multicolored butt fumes waltzed through the air before landing on it.

LADY GAGA TO DESIGN SUNGLASSES

The epitome of weirdness and all things good, also pop sensation, Lady Gaga, is rumored to design some kick-ass glasses! Oh finally a touch of Gaga-ness in the real fashion world. Remember her stint where she rocked a sport sunglasses made from rows of lit cigarettes in the “Telephone” clip? Well, not that we think it’s going to be that crazy, but this did cross our minds when we heard that Lady Gaga is linking arms with London-based sunglasses brand, Linda Farrow.

The 40 year-old label has launched a sunglasses line designed by singer Róisín Murphy recently, and adding Gaga to the lineup of celeb-designed sunglasses would be a fresh move for the brand. Linda Farrow has collaborated with the likes of Alexander Wang, Matthew Williamson and Dries Van Noten. We’ll be waiting for the confirmation on this, but tell us… will you buy Lady Gaga’s Sunglasses?

NO SEX FOR CHERYL...



CHERYL COLE has managed her first laugh since she was struck down with malaria - when doctors banned her from having sex.

A bit of Will.i (THE SUN IS SO CLEVER! GET IT? WILL.I, LIKE WILLY!) is quite low on her list of priorities at the moment - with staying alive at the top.

The frail singer survived by the skin of her perfectly straight teeth after a horror spell in intensive care and on Wednesday she returned to her Surrey home.

But at least the X Factor judge had a good chuckle with her mum Joan Callaghan and Yank dancer pal DEREK HOUGH when she found out her high blood pressure meant booze and bedroom antics were off the menu.

A source said: "Cheryl managed to summon enough energy for a giggle when she was given the news about a sex ban. It's the last thing on her mind right now.

"She has also been told to avoid alcohol for the coming weeks."

Myers hints at 'Shrek' return



Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz have given fans of the Shrek movie franchise a glimmer of hope - hinting there may be a future for the lovable ogre after all.

The fourth film in the animated series, Shrek Forever After, hit cinemas earlier this year and was billed as 'The Final Chapter'.

But Myers and Diaz - who voice the title character and Princess Fiona respectively - are still not convinced the franchise is over for good.

Myers tells Empire magazine, "We're the last people to know anything that's going on, is the absolute truth. I don't know what's to be with the series."

Diaz adds, "I'm hoping it's just a big Hollywood joke, that they're pretending that we're not going to make another movie and then we're back!"

Chaka Demus & Pilers Suing Universal Music Group For $10 Million In Unpaid Royalties

Chaka Demus and Pliers, the reggae act best known for their 1993 party-starter “Murder She Wrote,” are suing the world’s largest record label for more than $10 million in unpaid royalties and trademark infringement.



Attorneys for Jamaican-born stars John Taylor (aka Chaka Demus) and Everton Bonner (aka Pliers) lodged the complaint against Universal Music Group in New York this week. Chaka Demus and Pilers accuse Universal of misappropriating royalties intended for the duo from the sale of their dancehall hits, including “Murder She Wrote,” “Tease Me,” and “Twist and Shout.”

The suit charges that Universal Music has “withheld the monies and royalties payments” from the inception of the reggae stars’ contract with the Universal-owned label Island Records in Oct. 1992

According to Reuters.com, the pair are also demanding an injunction ordering Universal Music to cease the sale, production, and performances of the their music.

Actress Vonetta McGee Dies At Age 65

She appeared alongside Clint Eastwood in 'The Eiger Sanction' and in many blaxploitation films.

Actress Vonetta McGee
, best known for her leading roles in the blaxploitation films "Blacula," "Hammer" and "Shaft in Africa," has died at age 65. The Los Angeles Times reports that McGee died Friday (July 9) after being admitted to a Berkeley, California, hospital for cardiac arrest, for which she was put on life support for two days.

Born Lawrence Vonetta McGee in San Francisco on January 14, 1945, she caught the acting bug while attending college and landed her first film role in the 1968 spaghetti western "The Great Silence." Times movie reviewer Kevin Thomas called McGee "one of the busiest and most beautiful black actresses" in 1972, the year "Hammer" and "Blacula" were released. She later appeared alongside Clint Eastwood in the action-thriller "The Eiger Sanction." Other film credits include "The Lost Man," "Detroit 9000," "Brothers," "Repo Man" and "To Sleep With Anger," as well as many successful roles in television.

Her "Hammer" co-star Fred Williamson said he was most pleased to see her alongside Clint Eastwood. "Not many black actors had that opportunity to be in a movie where color doesn't matter," he said. "Vonetta McGee was like a lot of actors and actresses at that time, like myself, Jim Brown, Richard Roundtree, Billy Dee Williams and Pam Grier, in that we had more talent than we were allowed to show because everything was perceived as a black project. Once they categorize you, your marketability becomes limited."

Though she is known primarily for her roles in blaxploitation films, McGee outwardly criticized Hollywood's profligation of the term. She told the Times in 1979 that the wording was "like racism, so you don't have to think of the individual elements, just the whole. If you study propaganda, you understand how this works."

She is survived by her husband, Carl Lumbly; son Brandon; her mother; three brothers; and a sister.

Trump Requests Services of Tiger Woods Mistress #1

 

TMZ has learned Donald Trump is getting in on the action with Tiger Woods mistress numero uno Rachel Uchitel ... because he's offered her a job on the next season of "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Trump -- a longtime friend of Tiger's -- told TMZ he personally called Uchitel three weeks ago and offered her a spot on the show .... telling her she'd be "awesome."

We called Uchitel and asked if she was going to take the offer -- and she said, "Absolutely."

We're pretty confident she'll excel in business -- since she's already proved she can handle the load.

NBC has the final say on whether Uchitel will be on the show, but Donald usually gets his way.

Now Oksana claims Mel Gibson 'bruised their baby'

Photobucket

Mel Gibson faced a devastating claim last night that he hit and bruised his eight-month-old daughter.

Photographs taken after the alleged incident are said to show a bruise on baby Lucia's chin.

Lawyer's for Gibson's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva were said to be planning to present the pictures to a judge in Los Angeles in an attempt to strip the Lethal Weapon star of his custody rights.

There are unconfirmed reports the judge today decided not to alter the current visitation arrangement, which gives Gibson daytime visits and one overnight stay a week.

Miss Grigorieva was expected to claim that Gibson lunged at her while she was holding Lucia, who was two months old at the time, and hurt the baby while doing so.
A detective from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department Special Victims Bureau, who deals with child abuse and sexual assault, was seen at the hearing.

Rock Offspring Clothing Lines We'd Love To See

Daisy Lowe, British model and daughter of Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, has designed a clothing line for the French brand Morgan. This comes on the heels of the much buzzed-about news that Lourdes would help her mother Madonna create a line called "Material Girl" for Macy's. It's not exactly a new thing for musicians' children to embrace fashion design as a career -- Stella McCartney being the Queen among them -- so we've compiled a list of some rock progenies whose clothing lines we'd be very interested in seeing.

Aaron Sorkin + John Edwards = movie?



West Wing creator and An American President scribe Aaron Sorkin will make his feature directorial debut on a drama that chronicles the scandalous implosion of Senator John Edwards' 2008 run to be the Democratic presidential candidate. It ended shockingly when a tabloid newspaper revealed that the married senator had fathered an illegitimate child with Rielle Hunter -- a claim Edwards denied, denied, denied, and then finally admitted, much to the amazement of his cancer-stricken wife Elizabeth who was blindsided. Sorkin has optioned The Politician, the book by one-time Edwards aide Andrew Young that was published last January by Thomas Dunne Books.

"This is a first hand account of an extraordinary story filled with motivations, decisions and consequences that would have lit Shakespeare up," Sorkin said in a statement. "There is much more to Andrew's book than what has been reported and I am grateful that he's trusting me with it." Sorkin is no stranger to the political arena with credits that also include A Few Good Men and Charlie Wilson's War. Sorkin optioned the project on his own and hasn't yet involved a studio. He'll write the script and produce the film in a deal just closed by WME and his attorney Richard Heller. Sorkin is coming off two high-profile scripting jobs: the David Fincher-directed The Social Network, which opens October 1, and Moneyball, an adaptation of the Michael Lewis book that is about to begin production with Bennett Miller directing and Brad Pitt starring. Both are Sony Pictures' projects.

Bollywood releasing a 'comedy' about Bin Laden?



A feel-good movie about Bin Laden? Really?

A new controversial Bollywood comedy, Tere Bin Laden (Without You Laden), is coming out in Indian theaters tomorrow. The film is about a struggling Pakistani journalist (Pakistani pop star and heartthrob Ali Zafar) who tries to sell an interview with a fake Bin Laden to American news media organizations. The movie is set in Karachi, Pakistan, but filmed in India on a modest $2 million budget.

Even though the title was changed to Tere Bin (Without You) for the release in Pakistan and stars a Pakistani celebrity, the movie has already been banned in the country to avoid terrorist attacks, reports Variety.

Lately, Bollywood directors have been straying from the standard formula of action movies and weepy love stories and producing more controversial films. Last month, actor Anupam Kher pulled out of Dear Friend Hitler after protests from the Indian Jewish community.

Friend Claims The-Dream Tried To Control Christina Milian

MediaTakeOut.com received word from one of Christina's closest friends. She is furious with The-Dream and what he did to Christina. Here is the report:
christina milian vibe Pictures, Images and Photos

I am very close with Christina and she has NEVER removed her ring because she and Dream NEVER broke up

His announcement was the first time he ever expressed not wanting to spend the rest of his life with her and at this moment she is a distraught mother and wife.
With that kind of shock, I dont think she has even considered taking it off yet, everything happened so fast.

Trust me, if his words were truth, I would have been the first to throw a party for her leaving his evil ass. Check all the photos from 2010: she never took it off. Meanwhile he sure tried to use her and that baby to promote his failed album cause thats the only thing people cared about, not him. Why would a single man do that?

And all this bull about doing things to protect the baby!!! That baby cant read! But before she knows how to read, she will be able to understand those nasty disrespectful photos of daddy and what was a close family friend and employee.

Christina has real family and friends supporting her because she is 100% real and is an absolute joy to be around. The-Dream is the devil and anyone close to him is paid to be there and he could never get over that. That was the only problem in their relationship: he is crazy; he was mentally controlling and abusive. Now that he has recently turned his back on Christina, the clouds are clearing and she is no longer in the brainwashed state he had her in. Thank God!

Alexa Ray Joel Does 20/20

Alexa Ray Joel does 20/20. The daughter of “Piano Man” Billy Joel and supermodel Christie Brinkley will sit down on ABC’s 20/20 in her first interview since an aspirin overdose in December 2009. On 20/20, Alexa Ray Joel shows the stuff she’s made of. Joel is all grown up and healing from the depression that nearly cost her life and focused on her musical career and her future.

Joel is now 23 and claims that the near suicide attempt was because of pain not the desire to die. Joel states “I wasn’t trying to hurt myself, I wasn’t trying to kill myself. I was panicked. I was not thinking clearly at all. When you’re in that much pain, you’ll just do whatever you can do to get it to go away.” The source of Joel’s pain was the end of a relationship with a band member 15 years her senior. Joel coined the aftermath of the break up “heartbreak depression.”

The interview also reveals the pressure Joel has felt being the product of such talented parents and her efforts to create her own musical career. Joel states “If i can be half as good of an artist as him [her father Billy Joel], if I can write a melody he somewhat thinks is good, great. I’m doing okay. To him, it’s like, you’re gonna be fine, kid.”

Leonardo DiCaprio Ready for Fatherhood!!!! ...Someday



Leonardo DiCaprio is willing to start celebrating Father's Day. Just not anytime soon.

"Do I want to be a father? Yes, but I think I have a few more years," the Inception star, 35, tells the Swiss newspaper Le Matin. "That said, I don't think I need to have children to play a father in the movies. This feeling is in me, I understand it completely."

He adds, "In my private life, I still have time to become a dad, and I've no desire to rush."

Asked why he is so discrete about his relationship with Israeli beauty Bar Refaeli, even amid (unconfirmed) rumors they plan to wed this fall, DiCaprio says he prefers his press coverage to be about his professional life.

"I want to be an actor just like my role models. Robert De Niro, for example," says DiCaprio, who was seen cycling with Refaeli last weekend in Paris. "Being discreet in his private life has allowed him to be even more credible in different roles on the big screen."

And when it comes to his own career, DiCaprio, whose character in Inception does have children, says, "I like that I've reached an age where I can play more mature responsible characters, and that includes the father of a family."

Radar posted a picture of Oksana Grigorieva taken shortly after Mel Gibson allegedly punched her in the eyes and mouth while she was holding their baby. The picture is here if you need to see it. With the giant ass pink Radar over it, you can't really see any bruises on her face, but there's a clear view of OctoSana's broken teefs.

The picture has been turned over to the L.A. County Sheriff's department as evidence in their domestic abuse case against Blow Mel. OctoSana told the police that she lost a veneer and her front tooth got messed up something bad. OctoSana's dentist told police that he believes her broken teefs were caused by severe blunt force trauma. BUT (There's always one of those)....

TMZ's source is spitting up a different story. Their "law enforcement source" (It helped me to picture this dude as their law enforcement source) thinks something in the holy water ain't clean about the pictures and video of OctoSana's injuries. One source said that there's really no evidence that she was hit in the face. To them, it doesn't look like there was any damage to her soft tissue and her teeth remained intact. They said that one veneer was knocked out and another one was severely chipped. One expert believes that OctoSana might have done it to herself. SANTO DIOS!

Mel is crazier than a pack of rabid possums on a 5150 hold, so I totally believe that he's capable of bringing the passion of his fist onto anybody who goes into the Jacuzzi without him or refuses to blow him with a smile. Even thinking of blowing Mel makes my teeth hurt. And would OctoSana really pull some Taylor from Melrose Place shit by hitting herself with the door and then blaming it on Mel? Before you ponder that, let's give ourselves a brain cleanse.

He's disgusting. There's really nothing else to say.

NOTE: Regarding calling her OctoSana: It's DlListed's commentary. I don't think it's meant to be offensive but idk.... do with it what you will

Ellen Page talks public urination, remains snuggable

Ellen Page was on 'The Tonight Show' Thursday night to promote 'Inception,' but she spent part of her first segment talking about the trip she took to an eco village in Oregon.

While there, she peed in a bucket. The urine was then added to a compost as it's 'quite a prized commodity' and 'an incredible nitrogen source.'

Oregon talk starts 2 minutes in, urine talk starts 3:10 in.

Gratuitous "adorable lesbian" comment. Hay ONTD, have you ever sleepwalked or had a hallucination? This one time I went to work tripping on acid and hallucinated that these two big sheepdogs came through the automatic door, wandered around the store, and left. At least I think it was a hallucination. Either that or they just didn't find anything they liked.

Neverland Ranch to become Public?


Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If you're a Michael Jackson fan - you might be in luck - his former home aka Neverland Ranch might become a state park which means you may be able to visit his home.

According to reports, plans have been made to make the land, which is co-owned by the Jackson family and a private equity firm Colony Capital, available to the public.

Residents have previously protested against making the site a tourist attraction, but if all the plans go ahead fans will be able to visit the King of Pop's former residence.

California assemblyman, Mike Davis, told Associated Press: "Given that we have an economic shortfall... I suspect it would be difficult for the State Parks Department to purchase the property alone... I am committed to finding out all details possible to make this a good proposal".

Hmm. I don't know about this, personally. I liked the idea of Neverland being discreet.. But I'm on the fence! AND FOR ALL OF US MJ STANS, I purposely used a cute picture of the King :)

Nicki Minaj signed on to Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment in 2009 so it only makes sense that she collaborates with Jay Sean who is signed on to Lil Wayne's Cash Money Records.

Seth Cohen has a message for Bella Swan



Adam Brody, no stranger to successful teen franchises, has a message for Kristen Stewart and other actors accused of hating the fame game: Quit.

Appearing on Diablo Cody's new internet talk show "Red Band Trailer" (the screenwriter actually holds celeb chats in an Airstream trailer), the duo broached the perilous lives of celebs, paparazzi and all.

"Do you enjoy being famous, or do you wish that you could just be an actor apart from all that, a la Kristen Stewart?" Cody asked.

"It's only gotten worse, I'm sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don't have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do," Brody said, calling back to Cody's reference to Stewart.

"It's like, quit ... you don't need to be an actor, so it's like if it's that much of a problem ... there's the door."

Cody and Brody could be alluding to previous comments from Stewart regarding fan obsession and the oppressive nature of being famous.

Other gems from the sit-down include Brody settling the age-old debate -- Red Lobster or Olive Garden?

"I don't have a lot of experience with Red Lobster, but I trust the pasta over fish," he said.

"Game of Thrones" Casting MegaPost! Including Pictures of the ENTIRE Cast

New "Game of Thrones" Casting Includes Renly, Varys, Lysa and More!

HBO has just released a factsheet for "Game of Thrones" with information about the series, and a lot of the remaining cast filled in!

"“Game of Thrones” is a new original HBO series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling novels. In a world where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, the Westeros crown comes with a price.  Betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdom, from the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond.  Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noble men vie for power in the bloody struggle for the Iron Throne.
"

Some highlights of the people just cast include:

Gethin Anthony as Renly Baratheon                                      Jerome Flynn as Bronn
                                                       

James Cosmo as Jeor Mormont, the Old Bear                          Conleth Hill as Varys
                                  


Collapse )


DNW Renly, the only bad casting so far IMO. His mugshot here hides that his eyes are way too far apart. I'm also devastated over no Dominic West for Bronn. Fingers still crossed for Alan Dale as Tywin though.

It's also looking like Ilyrio might be recast, as Ian McNiece has some scheduling conflicts. Jamie Campbell-Bower is also being replaced as Waymar because they're reshooting the pilot.

Ned Stark and Ice thank you for your time

Eau de Gaga not happening.

So remember the other day when we told you Lady Gaga was rumoured to launch a perfume? Well apparently those rumours are completely false, so if you were hoping to smell like the Lady this Christmas you’d better scratch it off your list already.

Steve Mormoris, senior vice president of global marketing for Coty, the licensing company rumoured to working with Gaga on the scent, quashed the whispers soon after they arose this week. “I know nothing of this project,” he told WWD. “It is a totally false rumor.”

Well that’s us told, then. But whilst we’re a little confused as to where these rumours sprang from in the first place, we have no doubt that Lady Gaga will launch a fragrance at some point in the future – for now, though, her little monsters will have to wait a bit longer to smell like the singer.

Take That to earn £75 million from reunion

The boy band is set to rake in the mega-bucks after Robbie Williams announced he was rejoining.



Take That are set to make a whopping £75 million after it was announced that original member Robbie Williams is to team up with his fellow band mates once again.

The singer, who left the group in 1995 to pursue a solo career, originally chose not to reunite with the other four members who announced they were getting back together in 2005.

However the star has now changed his mind – and according to The Sun, each member of the group stands to make £15 million each from an album deal, arena tour, royalties and other projects which have been lined up.

JUPITER ISLAND — A Boynton Beach contractor is seeking a little more than $28,000 yet to be paid on a bill for work on the nearly completed Jupiter Island home being built by singer Celine Dion and her husband, René Angélil.

John J. Churey Construction Inc. has filed paperwork with the Martin County Clerk of the Court stating that Dion's Canadian firm, Renlec Management Inc., the owner of the 5.7-acre Jupiter Island property, has yet to complete payment on a $68,960 concrete-pumping project.

Officials with Renlec Management and Churey Construction were not available Thursday for comment.

The lien remains in place for a year unless legal proceedings are undertaken to foreclose on the property or Renlec moves to dismiss the claim.

Leighton Meester is willing to go bald; cheating on Selena Gomez with Katie Cassidy



As it turns out, Blair Waldorf and Leighton Meester probably wouldn’t be BFFs in real life. While the Gossip Girl actress’s character is known for her designer wardrobe and flawless beauty, in real life, Meester couldn’t care less about keeping up with the trends or taming her tresses. “I’m not super OCD when it comes to every little flyaway,” Meester told PEOPLE. “I like being a little undone.” And while the 24-year-old star recently became global spokeswoman for hair care brand Herbal Essences, she wouldn’t hesitate to chop off her signature long locks if for the right role. “I know it’s just hair and I can change it however I want. I haven’t shaved my head or anything like that. But, you know if I needed to! It’s part of my job to change my hair.” For Meester, embracing change is part of her routine, admitting to “playing a part” when she’s on a red carpet. And she turns to her dream team, including makeup artist Chris Colbeck and hairstylist Charles Baker Strahan, to help create her image. “It’s all about individuality and making a big statement. I leave it to the pros, they’re artists. I’ll be like, ‘just do your thing.’”

Ausiello blind item: Hit show plans a (shocking) wedding

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In the mood for a blind item? Good, ’cause it’s a doozie! At the end of next season, a couple on a successful show we’re obsessed with will be getting hitched.

I know, I know — it doesn’t sound shocking. TV couples get married all the time.

But trust me when I say, um, it is a mind-blower. Why? Unfortunately, I can’t really say. If I did it would be too obvious about whom we are talking. However, I can offer you a few clues…

1. It’s a wedding I was pretty sure we would never see.

2. The bride and groom are heterosexual. (Hence, bride and groom.)

3. The network in question is either ABC, CBS or Fox.

4. And there’s an important piece of this wedding that remains a mystery — even to me. (OK, that one may not be much of a clue. But it’s true!)

Mind you, it’s very early in the planning stages, so anything could happen. The story could be scrapped. On the other hand, all indications are that the nuptials have been approved by the higher-ups at the network.

PIXAR DEVELOPING DIRECT-TO-DVD CARS SPINOFF CALLED PLANES?
Is Pixar running out of ideas?

It's not a stretch at all to say that Pixar has been almost mistake-free since TOY STORY was released in 1995. The only misstep was CARS, by all accounts a moderately enjoyable but mostly average film. Strange then that Pixar seems so intent on expanding that universe. In addition to the CARS sequel that's set for release next summer, and the endless CARS-Toons short films, we've now got word that Pixar is developing a spinoff to the CARS franchise. Titled PLANES.

If this were April Fools, I might not even be fooled. If this were a headline on The Onion, I'd probably laugh. But by all accounts it seems that this is legit. Eager to cash in on the lucrative direct-to-DVD market, Pixar is apparently developing PLANES, a movie very similar to CARS, except with planes as the anthropomorphic characters.

The move strikes me as somewhat hypocritical as one of John Lasseter's first edicts as Chief Creative Officer of Disney was to shut down the direct-to-DVD cycle that had churned out such crap as THE LION KING 1 1/2 and THE LITTLE MERMAID III. (Apparently it was an early screening of TINKERBELL that so incensed Lasseter that he fired then DisneyToon Studios head Sharon Morrill.) Word was that Lasseter felt that these sequels were undercutting the creative and financial success of their feature films. An entire line of planned DVDs, "Disney Princess Enchanted Tales," were canceled outright. So why is a direct-to-DVD release spinoff of one of Pixar's films suddenly OK?

I get that CARS is John Lasseter's baby - he wrote and directed the original and he's co-directing the sequel. But with MONSTERS, INC. 2 also on the way, I'm just hoping that Pixar hasn't lost touch with the idea that original properties are why we love them so much...
Sauce
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Gif and title aside, I'm not that angry. It's a direct to dvd movie rather than a full length feature. And Cars wasn't that bad as the internet makes it out to be (I like the Route 66 imagery a lot). I know in the end, Pixar is a business and they're doing what would make them the most money but I just wished they were use more of their awesome talent to keep making original and new stories for us to watch rather than keep building on this cash cow franchise. That's all.

The frames other wide release Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" launched to a sleepy $3.9 million on Wednesday. Originally skedded to bow today, "Apprentice" moved up to benefit from tots on summer vacation, as well as to likely distance itself from Warner's "Inception."

What was the name for it? LohRon? Ronhan? This is how long it's been



Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson have had a famously tumultuous relationship – including tossed drinks and a Twitter war – but lately the deejay has been spending time with her troubled ex, and only wants what's best for her, says a source.

"Sam wanted to distance herself from Lindsay when they split up," a source tells PEOPLE. "But Sam never stopped caring. She genuinely cares about Lindsay and just wants to see her get better."

Since Lohan was sentence to 90 days in jail, Ronson has stepped back into the actress's corner.

On Monday, she Tweeted in Lohan's defense against cruel comments made by Joan Rivers. The pair were also spotted dining in L.A., and Ronson has visited Lohan twice at the sober-living facility where she's staying – including a visit Thursday night when she was seen leaving at 4 a.m.

Ronson, who the source says "is sober," wants to help lead Lohan in a better direction. "She gets it, she knows what Lindsay is going through and she knows she needs good people around her helping her down the right path," the source says.

In the coming days, Lohan will need all the support she can get. A source tells PEOPLE that once she reports to jail next week, she'll be kept in a cell at Lynwood jail by herself and have limited access to other inmates, but won't get any special treatment.

She "is not to be given any extra sheets, clothing, towels, etc.," the source says. "She will follow every rule and policy of the facility."

The source also says Lohan will serve no less than 23 days, and possibly more if she violates any rules.

source

I am really happy about this. Call me naive but I think the chance to win Sam back might help Lindsay turn things around. She was doing so well when they first got together, maybe they'll be able to come through this and be even stronger than before. Also they are totally boning again y/y

A post about the only person from the Hills who will be around in 5 years

While the clock is at 14:59 and ticking for the rest of the Hillsies Lauren already has a leg up on post-Hills life with her best-selling LA Candy novel series. She's now planning to expand the series.

Lauren out at a restarurant in LA July 14th


Lauren Conrad is going dark.

No, this isn't a story about the former Hills star changing the color of her hair...

Conrad says she's planning on penning a spinoff of her L.A. Candy novels.

"I'm going to take Madison from the book and do a darker series," she told me the other night the Hills finale party. "I already wrote a little bit and it was really fun."

L.A. Candy focuses on Jane Roberts, a young woman who moves to Hollywood, gets a job with an events planner and eventually lands her own reality show. Like Conrad, Jane isn't always happy with her fame and the attention it brings. (FYI: She just completed writing third installment of the Candy trilogy).

"I think it would be really fun to do it the other way, with someone who loves it," Conrad explained. "Someone who loves the fame and plays that game well."


The movie adaptation of her LA Candy series is in the very early stages of development.

The Town Trailer

 

Warner Bros. has unveiled the first trailer for The Town, Ben Affleck’s directorial follow-up to Gone Baby Gone.  Equal parts heist thriller and romantic drama, this adaptation of the Chuck Hogan novel The Prince of Thieves stars Affleck, Rebecca Hall, Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, and Blake Lively.  

 

Oddly, subsequent to a poignant shot of Affleck through a prison window, the trailer touts “the acclaimed director of Gone Baby Gone.”  Is there still residual Affleck resentment circa his 2003-04 career dive that his solid directing work on Gone doesn’t earn him top billing?

Not to say that the film doesn’t look like it was made by the acclaimed director of Gone Baby Gone.  Affleck seems to be exploring similar themes (is Boston a theme?) and developing a distinct visual style.  I am eager to see how the above black-and-white screencap of a gun-toting Renner fits into the context of the film.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang’s latest job, when they briefly took a hostage–bank manager, Claire Keesey (Rebecca Hall). Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name… and where she lives. But she lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug…not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path.


 


The trailer is also bing played during the previews of Inception.

Victoria's Secret Latest Chain to Be Bitten by Bedbugs

The store, on East 58th Street and Lexington Avenue, closed for extermination Wednesday morning and reopened later that day, a Victoria's Secret spokeswoman told the network.

The infestation was confined to a small section of the store, and all of the clothing from the affected area was destroyed, the spokeswoman told NY1.

Employees at the 58th Street location said Friday that they were "not at liberty to discuss" the issue. However one saleswoman acknowledged that she had not even been informed of the infestation.

George Clooney testifies in fashion fraud trial

It's no wonder the Italian businessmen claimed George Clooney was behind their fashion line — the actor knows how to wow an audience whether he's on the red carpet or the witness stand.

Maintaining his trademark aura of cool, Clooney delivered a few wisecracks Friday as he testified against three defendants accused of co-opting his name with the goal of launching a fashion line.

The appearance of the star, who maintains a villa on nearby Lake Como but is rarely seen here in public, sent the normally staid courthouse into full celebrity tilt. Clooney had to push his way through a wall of cameras into the courtroom, saying "scusa, scusa," — "Excuse me" in Italian — and warning "Don't crush my lawyers."

Throngs of fans packed the tiny courtroom. The judge repeatedly told spectators to be quiet and tossed out one woman who snapped a photo of Clooney.

The 49-year-old actor wore a navy blue suit, crisp white shirt and red-spotted blue tie as he addressed the court through an interpreter, throwing in occasional words in Italian and apologizing for his lack of fluency.

He testified that photos that purported to show him with two of the defendants were doctored and signatures on documents also were forged.

Only one defendant — Vincenzo Cannalire — attended the trial.

Clooney turned to greet him after recognizing the man from of the photos he was looking at.

"This is the first time I've ever seen him," Clooney said, motioning to the defendant. Then with just a trace of irony, Clooney added, "So I'd like to say hello, nice to meet you."

Hard at work in the midwest, Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley were spotted on the set of "Transformers 3" in Chicago on Friday (July 16).

Getting into the action scenes, the co-stars sprinted through piles of rubble and concrete as they filmed a fast paced scene for the movie along the blocked-off city streets.

In related news, an E! insider recently dished on Shia's bulked-up body, saying that the "Indiana Jones" hunk has definitely packed on a fair share of muscle.

The source tells, "He was short but so built. I bumped into him and literally said whoa. That's how surprising his presence was and how un-scrawny he looked!"

Meanwhile, fans can look forward to seeing the Michael Bay directed film when it hits theaters on July 1, 2011.

Daniel Radcliffe to star in supernatural thriller The Woman in Black


Dan Radcliffe's reps just confirmed that he's set to star in the supernatural thriller, "The Woman in Black". I'm too lazy to summarise, so here's the bit from IMDb:
When a friendless old widow dies in the seaside town of Crythin, a young solicitor is sent by his firm to settle the estate. The lawyer finds the townspeople reluctant to talk about or go near the woman's dreary home and no one will explain or even acknowledge the menacing woman in black he keeps seeing. Ignoring the towns-people's cryptic warnings, he goes to the house where he discovers its horrible history and becomes ensnared in its even more horrible legacy.
Hammer Films is set to begin production on a 3D film adaption of the book this fall.

GLSEN to Honor "Modern Family"



Fresh off the heels of scoring 14 Emmy nominations, the cast of “Modern Family” has another reason to celebrate: They will be honored by GLSEN - the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, during its sixth annual Respect Awards in Los Angeles.

The hit freshman comedy will be honored for its portrayals of positive images and story lines that reflect a diverse America, including the depiction of a family headed by a gay couple, the organization said.

Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) have won over audiences for their antics as first-time parents who often get themselves into clumsy situations, usually involving raising baby Lily.

Both Stonestreet and Furguson garnered nominations for their roles.

New shows like “Modern Family” and “Glee” have received applause for continuing to tackle storylines revolving their respective gay characters.

Breaking Dawn's Birth Scene Will Probably Be Gore-Free

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


The good news: It looks like Breaking Dawn will definitely include a birth scene.

The bad news: It will probably turn out to be a lot tamer than a lot of Twi-hards would prefer.

Eclipse producer Wyck Godfrey recently sat down with FEARnet to discuss the upcoming final installment of the Twilight saga, which begins filming in November, and it appears that gore fanatics might be disappointed with how the book's most infamous scene will play out on the big screen:

"I think the one thing that we've done that we've really done in all the films is keep them very subjective and keep them from Bella's point of view. So the conversations we've had with [director] Bill [Condon], is that we'll try to do something similar here; you're with Bella's perspective and her point of view of what's taking place in the rush around her, as she's in intense pain. Not so focused, objectively, on her body and his body and that. So I think it'll be something like that, in terms of trying to make the audience experience and feel the confusion, almost, of what's happening to her."

So...no close-ups of a bloody-fanged Edward Cullen performing an oral C-section, then? Well, at least we know we won't be gagging on our popcorn.

Selena Gomez is Team Lindsay

At first glance it would seem that squeaky-clean Disney star Selena Gomez and troubled actress Lindsay Lohan wouldn't have much in common. But to hear the Wizards of Waverly Place star tell it, she has nothing but love for the Machete actress, who is preparing to serve a 90-day jail sentence for probation violation stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest.

During a recent interview with E!, Gomez professed,

"I love her. I always have loved her. I'm a huge fan of hers , and I wish her and her family the best and nothing but."

And what of Lohan's current woes? Gomez remains philosophical on the issue:

"We all make mistakes, and are all just trying to figure out where we're supposed to be. I know I am."
