2011 Oscar Predictions: Does Burlesque have a real shot?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Is Burlesque a potential Oscar nominee or a train wreck waiting to happen? Steve Antin is making his feature directorial debut on the film, which he co-wrote with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich) and Keith Merryman. It stars an Oscar winner in Cher (Moonstruck), Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci and Grammy Award winner Christina Aguilera as the film's lead character Ali. With a November 24 release date Columbia Pictures is obviously thinking late year awards, if at the very least a Golden Globe (Musical/Comedy) nomination, but we'll just have to wait and see. One would think this film would be prime for original song, art direction, costume and makeup nominations and perhaps editing.

The BIG List: 40 Greatest Music Video Flops

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Music videos serve many purposes: to pop bottles and pour on models, roll out some of the flyest whips not yet on the road, popularize a mindless new dance or cast strategic celebrity love interests. But most importantly, they should provide some context to the song and draw attention to the music. Simple enough, right? Perhaps not as easy as it looks. The following 40 music-backed visuals brought more attention to the on-camera bloopers than they did the songs. Watch with a cautious eye. —Tracy Garraud, Clover Hope & John Kennedy

SHE WAS A BEAUTY QUEEN

RED DELICIOUS on the set of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES looking humble, bashful and youthful

Marcia Cross was anything but on-trend as she left her house in Los Angeles earlier this week to dash to the set of the hit U.S. TV show wearing fluffy slippers and a price tag on her jacquard dress.

However, the 48-year-old actress didn't seem too worried about her somewhat unusual outfit, flashing photographers as glimpse of her famous smile as she got into her car.

Flo Rida Wants To Work With (The Key Stage 1 bitches) The Saturdays


American rapper Flo Rida has been trying to fix things with UK pop outfit, The Saturdays.

He has beaten the girl band to the top of the UK charts twice - most recently this week when Club Can't Handle Me pipped the girls' Missing You - but now wants to collaborate with them as a way of saying sorry.

He told The Daily Star: "If we could make a collaboration happen I would be up for that. I don't know much about The Saturdays' but we put smiles on people's faces when we make music, which counts more than getting number ones."

The rapper then went on to talk about his superstar producer friend, David Guetta:

"David has got a great passion for what he does and he's very humble. Alexandra Burke insisted I meet him when we did a show together. We kept in touch and decided to work together."

EW: Is it bad when an actor is always the same?



Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of bellyaching from readers about actors who, you say, essentially give the same performance in film after film. The prime offender — as, according to this criticism, she has been for years — is Jennifer Aniston, who is accused of never having grown past her performance as Rachel on Friends: same cheerleader- next-door sexy wholesomeness, same silky straight goddess-of- shampoo-commercial hair, same lonely-princess aura. But in the last year or so, a lot of folks have been singing a similar song about Michael Cera, with his flat turtle stare and high school girl’s voice and 21st century Woody Allen neurotic-nerd patter. I hear what you’re saying (let’s agree right now that there’s some truth to it), but what’s amusing, and at times infuriating, about all this she/he is always the same! high dudgeon is the absolute, outraged presumption that if an actor doesn’t vary his or her personality very much (or, in fact, at all) from movie to movie, then that’s automatically a bad thing.

I have two words to say in disagreement with that idea: Katharine Hepburn.

Heidi & Karissa: Girl-on-Girl Sex Tape



Spencer Pratt has unearthed a girl-on-girl tape featuring Heidi Montag and Playboy Playmate Karissa Shannon .... sources tell TMZ.

We're told not too long ago Spencer was at the Malibu house he once shared with Heidi ... moving out some of his stuff. Sources tell us Spencer came upon a camera with XXX video of Heidi and Karissa -- and the light bulb went off.

Sources say it was then that Spencer decided he could make a fortune selling his "library" to Vivid Entertainment -- much of it featuring naked, fornicating Speidi.

We could not reach Heidi and her reps were mum.

As for Karissa Shannon -- she tells us such a tape does indeed exist, but she's not convinced Spencer really has it. Karissa says if the tape ever sees the light of day, she'll sue the pants off him.

Then again, he might enjoy that.

Julia Roberts Regrets Rejecting "The Blind Side" and "The Proposal" Roles?

In Touch Weekly Magazine



She’s an Oscar-winning actress with three children and a happy marriage, but Julia Roberts still regrets one thing she gave up.
 

“Julia Roberts (42) can’t help but feel upset that she had the chance to be in The Blinde Side, and turned it down,” an insider tells In Touch. Not only did Julia pass on the role that won Sandra Bullock (46) an Oscar, she was also replaces by Sandra in The Proposal after she refused to lower her salary. Sandra did take the pay cut, but her backend bonuses ended up making her Hollywood’s highest-paid actress. (Sandra earned $56 million in 2009; Julia made $20 million.)
 

Julia’s new movie, Eat, Pray, Love, has helped re-stoke her acting ambitions - Julia said as much in a interview: “I was proud that my passion was still vibrant in me.”
 

An insider says: “Julia’s a mom first, but she still wants to be the biggest female star in the world.”

Source: http://www.celebitchy.com/113544/julia_roberts_is_jealous_of_sandra_bullock_wishes_she_was_still_a_huge_star/

Eh, the media have been trying to pit the two against each other since 1995 when Sandra was being hailed "The New Julia Roberts" as Julia Roberts' career was sliding down. Julia came back strong in 1997, though, and remained "The One and Only Julia Roberts."  Julia had her big breakthrough in "Steel Magnolias" when she was 22 in 1989, and Sandra did not have her breakthrough until "Speed" when she was 30 in 1994.

Torchwood star John Barrowman holds garage sale



Torchwood star John Barrowman holds garage sale

Flyers advertising the sale offered “great deals” on furniture, collectibles and ornaments.

A posh Smeg double oven was even being flogged off.

“Everything must go – spread the word,” urged the flyer, decorated with Welsh flags as well as the Stars and Stripes.

And the Glasgow-born 43-year-old – wearing rimless specs, red checked trousers and a tight blue T-shirt – said: “I’m having a garage sale like any other citizen of South Wales!” On offer at the gazebo-covered driveway were some one-off Barrowman specials such as signed copies of Torchwood scripts as well as prints and memorabilia.

In fact the star, who plays Captain Jack Harkness in the Doctor Who spin-off, was on hand to sign every item on sale for an extra £1 on the ticket price – with a percentage of the proceeds going to local children’s hospice Ty Hafan.

“I’m just a regular citizen holding a normal garage sale to clear out a load of old junk and raise money for charity,” he said.

But it was not a “normal” garage sale. Outside his luxury pad was his three-year-old blue Peugeot 407 estate on sale for just under £7,000 while wardrobes, sofas and dressers were being auction off.

Tables were piled high with kitchen equipment from expensive Denby dining sets to silver table-top candelabras.

Hordes of locals squeezed round several clothes racks crammed full of the star’s old clothes.

One neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “It’s nice to see he’s part of the community.”

Despite the star holding a two-day “USA garage sale” at his £750,000 ocean view home to “clear out a load of old junk”, he insisted he will remain in Wales.

Rima Fakih, Muslim Miss USA: "Build Mosque Somewhere Else."


Rima Fakih, the first Muslim Miss USA, has come out against the location of the so-called "Ground Zero mosque."

Fakih, whose faith caused a bit of an uproar when she was first crowned, told Inside Edition on Monday that while she concurs with President Obama on the need for the protection of religious freedom, she also feels that the placement of the Park51 center is a little too close for comfort.

"I totally agree with President Obama with the statement on Constitutional rights of freedom of religion," Fakih tells the show. "I also agree that it shouldn't be so close to the World Trade Center. We should be more concerned with the tragedy than religion."

Footage of the interview will air tonight.

Jen Aniston's 'Switch' Bombs at Box Office

American moviegoers switched off The Switch -- preferring vampires, killer piranhas, Sylvester Stallone and Julia Roberts, to name a few.

In its debut weekend, Jennifer Aniston's widely promoted sperm donor comedy landed at eighth place, grossing just $8.1 million, Entertainment Weekly reports. Us Weekly's Thelma Adams wasn't a fan of the film, either: giving it two stars out of four, Adams says that the actress "treads on all-too-familiar ground; there isn't an exasperated hair flip we haven't already seen 100 times."

The Switch was bested by such newcomers as Twilight spoof Vampires Suck (#2, $12.2 million) Bow Wow's Lottery Ticket (#4 with $11 million) and Piranha 3-D (#6, $10 million). Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables nabbed the top spot at $16.5 million, with Julia Roberts' Eat, Pray Love landing at #4 in its second week. Aniston's March action comedy Bounty Hunter, with Gerard Butler, fared better: grossing $20 million in its first weekend, and nearly $70 million overall.



Did anyone go and see this? I thought it looked awful.

SO EMBARRASSED RIGHT NOW

Nadine Coyle signs record deal with... Tesco?



Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle's hunt for a record label is finally over. I can reveal she has signed for, er... Tesco.

It means her debut solo album will only be available from the supermarket, where it will fight for space with the fruit and veg.

Britain's biggest grocer has been promising a string of bigname signings to their start-up record label. Earlier in the year its entertainment director announced a tie-in with Mick Hucknall and Simply Red and signing Nadine is certainly a big coup.

Whether it works for Nadine remains to be seen. The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland has been working in LA for two years now on her "dream" album. She had signed with Geffen Records, but the deal came unstuck over finances. So far she's worked with Robbie Williams' former songwriting partner Guy Chambers, Madonna's one-time producer William Orbit and singer songwriter Lucie Silvas and is close to finishing her record.

The long wait for a deal has apparently being deeply frustrating for Nadine and fuelled speculation that things were not going well.

But my source tells me: "Tesco will sell her album exclusively to their customers and it won't be available anywhere else, and being able to work on the music that she wants was the main reason for going with Tesco."

The decision has allowed Nadine to call all the shots on what she releases.

"She's decided who she's wanted to work with from the start. She's in control of every single decision - from the writers, the producers and the collaborators - and wants to produce her dream album. She didn't want to be a puppet for a record company."

The new deal confirms reports that Nadine is at least a year away from returning to the band that made her famous.

Girls Aloud still have a three-album deal with Fascination Records to fulfil, but sources say Nadine won't join them until she's given the solo project her best shot.

"She's planning a year of publicity, performing on her own and creating a brand for herself," adds the source.

"She hasn't started to think about when she will return to the band - or even if she will.

True Blood: Too Gay?


Last week, Philadelphia Eagles player, Todd Herremans, had gotten in some trouble with fans and team management after he tweeted his annoyance at "True Blood's" "barrage of homosexuality."

We could have never predicted that Rolling Stone would unveil a racy new cover featuring Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer entwined with each other and nude soon after. And in the article, creator Alan Ball said that sexually anything goes with his vampires. Also, "90210's" Michael Steger appears in Sunday's (August 22) episode to add a new romantic interest for Denis O'Hare's vampire king character.

At any rate, after Herremans apologized, we asked our readers if it's possible to be a fan of the show and anti-gay. You responded in droves.

This isn't gay, it's a totally heteronormative relationship between a vampire and his maker. God, some people are so dumb. Really dumb.

Jason Trawick set to marry Britney Spears





Those tatty blonde hair extensions will soon be tucked under a veil because Britney Spears is set to trot down the aisle - one more time!

Insiders tell Now the singer's so loved-up, she's set to marry her former agent Jason Trawick, 38, this year.

‘Britney's on top of the world right now and has started wedding plans,' says the source.

‘They've decided to have a small, intimate ceremony - not a big media circus - but they'd like to say "I do" by the end of the year.

They've been dating since last summer and Jason's nothing like her exes.'
 

The upcoming nuptials have boosted 28-year-old Britney's self-esteem so much that she's even talking about having another baby.

‘She's aware that there'll be a big age gap between her elder son Sean [four] and her next baby, so she definitely wants it to be sooner rather than later,' says our insider.

‘Brit's dad Jamie and mum Lynne are fully supportive - since Britney was sectioned two years ago, they've been ultra-vigilant about her personal life but they've known Jason for years and trust him completely.'

'DELOCATED' SEASON 2 PREMIERES TONIGHT



As Mark Twain once wisely observed, “Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog.” The result, he warned, is that the frog usually dies. He was probably right, but even so, there’s something about Delocated, the Adult Swim series created by and starring Jon Glaser, that makes me want to kill a fucking frog.

The show’s first season, which originally aired last summer and consisted of just six 15-minute episodes, is a veritable smorgasbord of frog-murdering moments. The premise, at least on paper, is semi-amusing at best: a family in the Witness Protection Program stars in a reality TV show. It sounds like a sketch idea for a late-night comedy show. (Glaser spent five years writing for Late Night with Conan O’Brien.) But somehow, it manages to be one of the funniest and most original shows on TV today. And it’s almost impossible to explain why. Take the pilot episode, in which Glaser, wearing a black balaclava and speaking with a voice modulator, tries to seduce a woman by saying, "Bottle of red, bottle of white, whatever gets me laid tonight. Billy Joel." See what I mean? That line may’ve made you crack a smile, and that’s only if you’re being generous. But you’ve got to trust me on this. Coming out of Glaser’s mouth, with the sinister baritone of a harmonizer that makes everything a little extra creepy, it’ll give you an aneurysm from laughing.

The rest of the first season is just more of the same. It’s a blitzkrieg of comedy that’s destined to be lost in translation. I could tell you about the "Skalocaust" and the tortilla blanket and the Rage Cage and the "I Am Having a Good Time" dance and the Paul Rudd murder soliloquy. I could repeat Delocated-isms like "Let’s go give these whiteys a half-honorary black eye" and "That took balls the size of my balls" and "You’re just mad that he’s taking mom to the bone zone." But what’s the point? I wouldn’t be able to do any of it justice. And in the end, it’ll likely make you even less interested in watching the new season, which premieres this Sunday, August 22, on Adult Swim.

So forget it. Check out Delocated if you want. Or don’t. And then in ten years, when it’s considered a cult classic, the Fawlty Towers or Mr. Show of the early 21st century, and everybody insists that they were a fan back when it was just a throw-away show on a long-gone cartoon network’s late-night schedule, you can pretend that you loved it all along and you’re not actually embarrassingly late to the party. Oh hey, here’s a message from all of us in the past: “Enjoy your dead frog!”

What ASkars wants for his Birthday....


Few people would rather give than receive on their birthday, but Alexander Skarsgård is one of them.
Alex's birthday falls on August 25th and he has requested fans not to send him gifts but instead to put their money where it could do the most good.

SkarsgårdNews.com has acknowledged Alex's request, accepted the mission, and working with his approval, is coordinating its first charity auction to benefit Alex's charity of choice, Amnesty International.

Collapse )

The auctions will begin on August the 22nd and last for over 2 months. New items will be presented each week and will be sold before the next item is offered for bidding. The first item on the block was donated by Celeb4ADay.com and consists of the “A-List Package.” It is specifically intended for either Los Angeles residents or those traveling to the LA area. It can also be gifted to someone who fits the geographical criteria.
This item was inspired by Lady GaGa's "Paparazzi" music video in which Alex portrays her murderous boyfriend. The "A-List Package" offers the winning bidder a unique A-List celebrity experience which includes 4 paparazzi photographers following you to your destination be it a night club or Denny's, shouting questions, taking pictures, vying for your attention, begging for one more photo, just like Alex encounters whenever he goes to buy milk. While his pap experience is unending, yours will last 30 minutes

The best part, you'll have your own tabloid cover with headlines custom made just for you and a DVD containing pictures of your experience to share. Warning!; bodyguard not included, neither is the murderous boyfriend!

Other items available will include: autographed memorabilia, original art, jewelry, True Blood merchandise and rare items, and other pieces unique to Alex's career. Alexander Skarsgård himself has donated several personal items to be auctioned off.

We on the website are excited to host what we hope will be the first of many such events that allow the fans to send their money where it's needed most. So check in frequently and bid often at SkarsgårdNews.com

The charity's main page is here. Please read carefully before bidding on any auction!

Sammi moves back in after quitting Jersey Shore

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola can’t handle the heat at the Jersey Shore any longer. The guidette from Hazlet, N.J., packed her bags Friday night, her pal tells OK! exclusively, after a blowout fight with boyfriend and castmate Ronnie Magro over his infidelity.

“She ripped off the mic pack at the house after a monster fight with Ronnie and quit,” Sammi’s friend tells OK!.

Sammi learned of Ronnie’s cheating ways in last week’s episode of the hit MTV reality show — currently airing on the network — and has had enough.

“She feels stupid for believing him and he made a fool of her,” the insider says.

Sammi left Ronnie and the rest of her castmates Friday night, emptying her belongings from the Jersey Shore house in Seaside Heights, N.J. The gang is currently filming Season 3, and the blowout was captured on tape.

“The door was left open for Sammi to return whenever she wanted, but she said ‘No way, not happening’ and is home,” our source added.

MTV has no comment while cast is in production.

However, as fans of the show have learned, anything can happen on Jersey Shore and Sammi’s dramatic exit (and return) would make for great TV!

UPDATE: After negotiations with producers, Sammi has agreed to return to the Jersey Shore house and resume filming.

DH: Young Lily Evans + screening Q&A

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


A&J casting agency has listed 10-year-old actress Ellie Darcey-Alden to play young Lily Evans in the final installment of the Harry Potter series, Deathly Hallows: Part II. Lily, as a child, was featured in the story during Snape's memories of his lost love in 'The Prince's Tale' chapter, which illuminated Harry of his impending fate.

Special Deathly Hallows Q&A: CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILERS!

1. How did Ron react to Hermione being tortured?:
Irrationally... That entire scene was just how I imagined it in the books. The Malfoy mansion was absolutely perfect.

2. Were there peacocks?: there may have been... I didn't notice any. But it doesn't mean they weren't there.

3. Were Ron/Hermione done justice?: it was very clear that it was Ron and Hermione. The scene in the forest when Ron saves Harry's live while he's swimming underwater to get the sword of Godric Griffindor was amazing.

4. Was the locket scene like you imagined it would be?: When harry opened it, Voldemort played on Ron's fears and it's great. His fears for his family, but very vividly his fear that Hermione is into Harry. And the smoke that comes out of the locket is almost like the smoke monster from LOST. It has smoke versions of Harry and Hermione saying the most vicious and hurtful things to Ron. Then they start making out with very little clothes on.

5. Do Harry and Hagrid go straight to the Burrow after the 7 Potters fighting sequence..or do they still stop at the Tonks' house?: No, they go straight to the burrow. And spoiler alert... Hedwig dies. But I was very happy with the way she dies

KIM G IS GOING TO BUY ALL TERESA'S STUFF AND SELL IT ON EBAY
(THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS BITCH)



The auction of The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s belongings has one confirmed buyer, and she has major plans for the items.

Kim Granatell, her frenemy on the show, told RadarOnline.com that she thinks Teresa’s household items aren’t worthy of an estate sale. “Her things should be for sale on a folding table on Mulberry Street"

However Kim told RadarOnline.com she was going to the auction and was bringing her checkbook. “I’m going to buy everything and re-sell it on eBay,” she said. Kim plans to donate everything to the Emmanuel Cancer charity.

The auction was originally slated to take place on August 22 but has been postponed until October 3. Kim and her partner in crime Tom Muro plan to be present at the auction and clean house. Literally.

The same company that organized the auction of Grammy-award winning singer Whitney Houston’s sale in 2007 exclusively told RadarOnline.com that they expect Teresa Giudice’s auction to be more popular. Houston’s auction was in an old warehouse in New Jersey, but this one promises to be a higher level event.

“This one is a beautiful home in New Jersey on a Sunday. So, I think more people will show up.”

Fantasia Barrino Hits The Stage at the Big Chill in Charlotte, NC

About a week after her 'suicide attempt', Fantasia Barrino hit the stage at the Big Chill in Charlotte, NC as a surprise performer to close out the Birthday Celebration/Comedy Show for Charlotte Bobcats player Tyrus Thomas. VH1 camera crews were in attendance, as Fantasia performed a set of old school jams.

“I been in the house for a week so you know I’m 'bout to act ugly,” she said to a cheering crowd. “When they said it was over for me, I’m here to say I’m back!”

Paul The Psychic Octopus and David Beckham Together. AWWW YEAH!


Paul the octopus joins David Beckham in England World Cup bid

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Paul the psychic octopus, who became a sensation by correctly predicting the outcome of eight World Cup matches, has become an official ambassador for England's bid to host the event in 2018, the bid team said Friday.

Paul, who lives in an aquarium in Oberhausen in western Germany, guessed the outcome of as many World Cup matches as he has limbs - all seven of Germany's games plus the Spain-Netherlands final.

He hatched at Weymouth Sea Life Centre in Dorset in 2008. "Paul has spent two years of his life in Germany, but he is definitely a proud Englishman," said Nicola Hamilton, the centre's manager. "We have had a number of football approaches from around the world, but Paul was only ever going to choose his homeland."

Paul, who retired from the official oracle business after the World Cup in South Africa, has joined the list of celebrities supporting the 2018 bid that includes England player David Beckham, Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton, and musicians Noel Gallagher and Sting.

England is competing with Russia, the US, Australia, and joint bids from Spain and Portugal, and Holland and Belgium for the right to host the 2018 World Cup.

FIFA will announce the winning bids for 2018 and 2022 tournaments December 2.

Cinematographer Wally Pister talks about shooting Inception, says Nolan like Michael Bay films

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As much of a genius as Christopher Nolan may be, it's fair to say that he wouldn't have the success he currently enjoys without the invaluable contributions of Wally Pfister. Pfister, a cinematographer who began his career with a series of straight-to-video (forget DVD) thrillers and other forgettable films, first collaborated with Nolan on Memento, and the two have worked together ever since. Pfister has since been nominated three times for Academy Awards, and their latest work is Inception, which is quite possibly the summer's most highly-anticipated film.

Cinematical was lucky enough to sit down with Pfister for an exclusive interview at the Dallas Film Festival this spring, where he was honored with their coveted Star Award. Gregarious and charming, Pfister discussed his ongoing collaboration with Nolan, examined his efforts to create a relationship between a film and its audience, and reflected on his own artistic and personal evolution throughout his career leading up to Inception.

Cheryl Cole insists she has never been happier



X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has decided to put her split from husband Ashley and her recent bout of malaria behind her. The 27-year-old insists that she has never been happier.

She told The People: "I've got so much to look forward to in the next few months. I've never felt happier."

During the first episode of The X Factor the Girls Aloud star was seen as she collapsed with malaria.

Cheryl has now fully recovered from the disease that left her hospitalised.

Friends said that the singer now feels ready to move on from the pain of her marriage break-up.

A source said: "Cheryl's saying I feel like I've turned my life around.

"She says she's looking at doors opening for her in her life over the next few months. She is excited about starting this whole new chapter in her life.

"It's great to see her looking and feeling good again after all that she's been through.

"She is talking excitedly about starting work on The X Factor again and the release of a pop single."

They added: "But she seems particularly relieved about the way her divorce is progressing. There is no time frame here. It's not a case of a date for the divorce to come through. That will happen when the lawyer's letter arrives."

Tom Hanks And Sandra Bullock Will Star In 'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close'

Paramount and Warner Bros. are set to partner on Jonathan Safran Foer’s 2005 Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close: A Novel, with Stephen Daldry to direct two Oscar-winners, Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks.

The deals are not yet closed. Warners grabbed rights to the book, then brought in Rudin and Paramount. It has not yet been determined which studio will take domestic or foreign. The two studios partnered on The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Another Oscar-winner, screenwriter Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) adapted the book, which like Foer’s 2002 debut bestseller, Everything is Illuminated (which was made into an indie film by actor/director Liev Schreiber in 2005), involves multiple narrators and time frames. Bullock and Hanks will take on the parents of a brainy nine-year-old vegan/scientist/artist/pacifist who plays a tambourine (recalling the drummer-hero of Gunther Grass’s The Tin Drum). He searches for a lock that matches a mysterious key left behind by his father, who died the year before in the North Tower on September 11, 2001. His father’s parents also recount how they met and married and lived through World War II. The filmmakers are just starting the search for their young lead as they prep a mid-to-late January start in New York City.

Producer Scott Rudin is on a roll.

The prolific film and theater producer boasts two likely fall Oscar contenders: David Fincher’s A Social Network and the Coens’ True Grit, starring last year’s Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges. Next month, Fincher starts shooting the global hit book franchise, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara. Rudin recently scored the film rights to Time cover boy Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom: A Novel, which is nabbing raves. Rudin won the best picture Oscar for the Coens’ 2007 film, No Country for Old Men.

Daldry and Rudin have proved a potent combo in the past, delivering Oscar wins for Nicole Kidman in The Hours and Kate Winslet in The Reader; Daldry was Oscar-nominated for both as well as his 2000 feature film debut, Billy Elliot. He also directed the hit London and Broadway musical, which won ten Tony Awards, including best musical.

All Together Now: "Awwww!"

Wil Wheaton is Awesome

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In 1988, aged just 8 but already a fan of the teen actor due to Stand By Me, Star Trek: The Next Generation and his 'awesome smile', an excited Teresa Juniso saved up the $12.00 membership fee and applied to join 'WilPower', then-15-year-old Wil Wheaton's official fan club. She then waited. And waited some more. And then gave up waiting altogether. The membership kit never materialised, and before long the initial disappointment was forgotten.

In 2009, Teresa Juniso, now a 29 year-old writer, received - along with a package containing the very items she had waited patiently for 21 years previous - the following letter; an incredibly endearing apology and belated welcome to Wheaton's now defunct fan club, written by Wil Wheaton himself after being alerted to her story.


Said Teresa:

He gets a big thank you from Twenty-Nine Year Old Me. Don’t get me wrong. Eight Year Old Me is very, very pleased. But Twenty-Nine Year Old Me better knows the importance of a kind gesture, and hopes that her gratitude carries more weight.

T.I. is following in the footsteps of his fictional character in 2006's hit “ATL” and planning to release a cartoon. The rapper/actor confirmed to Shade 45 host Angela Yee that he's working on the series titled “Lil Homies.

Speaking on the upcoming project he says that in addition to working behind the scenes, he may lend his vocals to provide voice over for the characters. “I'm actually working on a TV show as a producer…a cartoon…called Lil Homies. I may do like voice over…like a narrator.”

He also joked with Yee, telling her that she may be eligible for the project to play the voice of the “neighborhood freak.”

Something Corporate puts together pitch-perfect reunion set

If, as the saying goes, you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone, Something Corporate fans knew exactly what they had when the band returned for a brief reunion tour on Saturday.

Billed as An Evening with Something Corporate, there were no opening bands, just the mounting anticipation of once-again hearing some great songs played by a group whose time, it seems, was too short.
At 9 p.m., the lights dimmed inside Salt Lake City’s sweltering In The Venue, and the sound system blared “Reunited and it feels so good.” And good it was.

Collapse )

 Source


There have been a lot of reviews of the reunion tour but  they're pretty much all saying the same thing: "Something Corporate was definitely missed." I hope all SoCo fans had/will have the opportunity to go, it was seriously one of the best nights of my life (and meeting Andrew McMahon wasn't too shabby either!). 

Who all got to go on this tour (or is going to go)?!

ETA: For anyone who doesn't know who Andrew McMahon is, take the time to look at the website for the Dear Jack Foundation. He's a leukemia survivor and basically an amazing person. It's a really important cause.

20 Actors Who Deserve Your Support

The list of categories actors could be broken into is seemingly endless. Just in the last month or so here at Cinema Blend, we've done itemized editorials celebrating the great supporting actors and disgracing those who no longer care. The possibilities are exhausting. Who's the most bankable star in Hollywood? Will Smith? Who's the best actor in the world? Johnny Depp? Who's the smarmiest villain of all-time? Eric from Billy Madison? But, it seems to at least us, there's one single factor which matters more than all others. It's all about whether or not you care.

It may seem downright obvious to most, but people who genuinely care about their craft are, in any industry, increasingly rare. Like any generic, run-of-the-mill, cubicle-infested business Hollywood is composed of all types. There's the guy who does just enough not to get fired, the guy who seems chiefly concerned with pleasing his boss, the guy who only really cares about how his work will further his career, the guy who doesn't seem to care at all. Sometimes those people get the job done, sometimes they don't. But the worker you know you can count on, the one who's there every day, putting in the extra hours simply because he loves what he does, because he respects it, that's the guy who deserves your money.

This list, the one you're about to read, is a celebration of the stars who still consistently give a shit. It's for the guys who miraculously bat .750 in an age when the majority of actors are content with sacrifice flies or swinging so hard they either hit a home run or strike out. Some of these men and women are old standbys; some are promising upstarts frantically fighting upstream. They don't always get it right, but all of them seem to, for their own reasons, care. This is our thank you. Cinema Blend supports these men and women; we suggest you start (or continue) supporting them too…

Do you agree with this list? Do you think someone should/shouldn't be here? Is someone missing?

Snooki's Ex -- I Should Have Made a Sex Tape!

Spencer Pratt's guido protégé Emilio isn't quite on his level yet ... because he didn't shoot a sex tape with Snooki like Spencer did with Heidi -- but he wishes he had!

Emilio shot a dating show pilot for Spencer's production company called "Fist Pumping 4 Love." He tells us he thinks the Speidi sex tape is "an amazing idea" and he envies Spencer for it.

But rest easy -- there is no sex tape with Emilio and ex-GF Snooki. Emilio says, "Wish I did that with Snooki. But I'm still learning and wasn't as smart as him."

It's probably a good thing -- the world isn't ready for a Snooki sex tape.

  

Ugh. This person should not exist.

Taylor and Ben interviewed by T4 @ V-Festival. Clears up the Rihanna situation going on to say "First of all I'd like to say that...it's a misquote. I was arguing the difference between rock vs pop and it's a very pop world at the moment and that is there is no rock and the people who dress or have guitars in their music...[for] audiences that's the closet thing they have to rock and we are looking to bring back a real rock band and Rihanna, I wasn't insulting Rihanna."

This Sounds Completely Believable And True!

Jennifer Aniston Tried To Have Brad Pitt’s Ex Juliette Lewis Fired From The Set Of Their New Film!

Nervous about interacting with Brad’s ex on the set of their new film ‘The Switch,’ Jen spoke with the director about firing Juliette before filming even began!

It looks like Angelina Jolie isn’t the only partner of Brad Pitt that Jennifer Aniston is determined to avoid — she tried to have new costar and Brad ex Juliette Lewis fired from their new film The Switch! A source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “When Jen heard that Juliette was cast in the movie, she wasn’t happy. In fact, she wanted her fired before the movie even started filming. Jen is one of the producers of the film, so she had a say in who was cast and who wasn’t.”

Eventually the director was able to convince Jen that Juliette was perfect for the part and should stay in the film, and assured the star Juliette would be under strict orders to not speak about Brad.

“It took some convincing, but Jen finally okayed it,” our source told us. “In fact, she turned out to be very cool about it. She went up to Juliette and welcomed her with open arms. They weren’t the best of friends on the set. Nor, will they probably ever see each other again. But Jen was a professional as usual and made Juliette feel comfortable.”

We are glad Jen was able to put aside her initial fears, though we doubt we will ever see her going so far as to star alongside Angie!

What Anna Paquin wore on her wedding day!



True Blood
stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer tied the knot at a private residence in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday night at sunset -- and Us has new details on the bride and groom's wardrobe for the special day.

Bleach-blonde Paquin, 28, summoned Marilyn Monroe for her look: she wore a white halterneck, three-quarter length gown and black platform court shoes, with her hair in an updo. Moyer, 40, donned a dark suit.

The happy couple exchanged their vows beneath a tent on a grassy lot near the beach; they then celebrated at a nearby house with such guests as Elijah Wood and True Blood castmates Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, Alan Ball, Rutina Wesley and Carrie Preston, plus Preston's husband Michael Emerson (Lost). (WUT?)

The pair -- who play lovers on HBO's smash vampire series -- announced their engagement last August.  They began dating a few months after filming first began in 2008 for the show.

"I have never trusted anybody like I trust Anna," Moyer gushed in the July issue of Playboy.

"I feel so lucky right now," Paquin says in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. "Life is pretty great."

Two On-Screen Team-ups You Didn't Ask For, But Are Getting Anyway



Two recently announced movie projects are proving that the cinematic odd couple will always be a reliable movie formula. First, The Hollywood Reporter, um, reports that Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah will team up in Warner Bros.' and Alcon Entertainment's upcoming feature "Joyful Noise." Todd Graff ("Camp," "Bandslam") will write and direct the musical project, in which two women join forces to prevent a small-town gospel choir from shutting down. Latifah will play a mother of two teens who is put in charge of the choir after the death of its director, while Parton will play the choir director's widow who hopes to take over her late husband's job. The pair clash over their differences until they eventually earn a mutual respect for each other and unite for the greater good. Or so I'm guessing.

On the other end of the movie spectrum, Variety reports that Wesley Snipes and Joey Joseph Lawrence will star in the indie action flick "Havana Heat." The movie centers on a Homeland Security agent based at Guantanomo who's murdered while undercover in Havana, where betrayal and intrigue take place against a backdrop of crumbling colonial architecture and vintage American cars. Tayrona Entertainment Group, the company behind the film's production, have indicated that they are aware of Snipes' legal troubles, and expressed confidence that the matter will be resolved positively. The Variety article says that "Heat," which is being directed by Dean Hamilton ("Blonde and Blonder") and will co-star 80's B-movie action flick staple Michael Dudikoff, mixed martial arts fighter Heath Herring, Zulay Henao ("Fighting"), Peta Wilson (TV's "La Femme Nikita"), Bollywood star Nicholas Brown ("Kites"), and Raul Julia-Levy (son of the late Raul Julia), is expected to be released (aka available in your local Redbox) next summer.

Bill Kaulitz Swings Into STK



Making for a rare sighting, Bill Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel was spotted checking out the Tinseltown nightlife with a visit to the STK Steakhouse in Los Angeles on Saturday (August 21).

The German pop star looked his usual stylish self as he dropped by the popular west coast eatery/nightclub with a bodyguard trying to thwart awaiting paparazzi along the way.

As for their musical endeavors, Tokio Hotel recently performed a gig in Malaysia during which Bill and his brother Tom Kaulitz spoke of possible plans for a bilingual followup to the popular Humanoid album.

Tom said, "The problem is we will need about two years to produce the record. because we have to do everything twice! So instead of recording, say, 50 songs, now we have to record 100!"

"And I have to write the lyrics in two languages, so that’s really a lot of work,"
added Bill. "So we’re not really sure about that, but I think we can do a little bit here and there, but we definitely (still) want to make English songs, and because it’s not a word-to-word translation, we like to think of it as two versions of one song, because sometimes the story is also different."

Mad Men Can Be Dangerous To Your Health, Says Desperate Housewives Star

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Desperate Housewives star Kathryn Joosten would like a word with the folks behind Mad Men.

No, she's not looking for a job on the hit AMC drama, but…

Joosten, who plays Karen McCluskey on Housewives, thinks there should be a warning at the beginning of Mad Men episodes because of all the smoking the characters do—even if all that cigarette-puffing is historically accurate for the 1960s.

"I think they should at least have a disclaimer at the front of the show saying smoking is relevant to the time and place with the subject matter we're dealing with and it is not recommended because it causes cancer," Joosten, a two-time lung cancer survivor, told me yesterday at the Creative Arts Emmys. "They should at least do that."

Joosten, 70, ended her 45-year smoking habit when she was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2001. Eight years after beating the disease, she was once again told she had cancer. In January, doctors said she was cancer-free after undergoing surgery to remove the cancerous growth.

She also thinks Mad Men producers should provide annual chest x-rays "for any member of the cast and crew who wants one."

Love Spurts! 5 Things Movies Taught Us About Donating Sperm



Curious about sperm donation? We were too, until we came across some literature. (Literally, we ejaculated on some reading materials, ’cause we didn’t know what else to do with them. What? We’re semi-literate over here!) Anyway, after that, we got hip to the process by watching a bunch of movies that dropped loads (of knowledge) about dropping the kids (who you hope you’ll never know) off in plastic cups. The latest of these flicks, The Switch, releases all over theaters this Friday. Jason Bateman plays a guy who’s secretly in love with his best friend (Jennifer Aniston) and who replaces the high-quality donor sperm, with which she is to be artificially inseminated, with his own inferior mancake batter. We’re pretty sure there’s a lesson to be learned in there, and we aim to figure it out so we’re not just shooting blanks when you check out the five things movies taught us about sperm donation…

6 Movie Heroes Who Actually Made Things Worse



WARNING: SPOILERS.

The typical Hollywood blockbuster has a pretty straightforward plot, with the good guy thwarting the bad guy's evil schemes and then kicking him off the Hoover Dam onto an exploding submarine.

But here's a fun little game you can play: watch a movie and ask yourself what would had happened if the hero hadn't showed up at all. You'll be surprised how often things would have actually turned out for the better.
