Guess Who I Met Last Wednesday?

So on the 18th I went to Flint for a concert and saw two amazing bands and an incredibly weird whatever band. After the concert, I got to meet the headlining band which I'm pretty sure most people, if anyone, on ONTD, have no idea who they are. But I am here to educate!

So who did I meet?

Mods, I completely understand if this isn't accepted, but I figured I'd give it a try. I'm a huge fan of  these guys and I think they deserve more love.

And yes, ontd. I am aware that I looked a mess in my pictures and my hand is incredibly freaky looking. I am not photogenic and I make no apologies.

Does Joe Jonas Stuff His Pants?!

As more pictures from the Jonas Brothers softball games surface we're starting to notice that Joe is a little bit more "gifted" compared to all the other players(and we're not talking about his game performances),

Lets look at some of the evidence from a recent game

Does he stuff his pants?

Duh! It looks like he's smuggling a small Mexican baby in that thing!
No! He is perfect in every single way, and that foot long sausage in his pants is real, I tell you! REAL!

Newsweek's Emmy Roundtable: Video

Emmy-nominated actors Matthew Fox, Christina Hendricks, Eric Stonestreet, Bryan Cranston, Connie Britton, and Chris Colfer discuss their worst first gigs, most embarrassing moments, and behind-the-scenes secrets, like how 'Lost' really ended and why Hendricks’s agent dropped her.

Audi And Chopard Emmy Week Kick-Off Party – Jayma Mays In Christian Cota

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jayma Mays also attended the “Emmy Week Kick-Off Party” hosted by Audi and Chopard last night.

The ‘Glee’ actress shimmered in a silvery lame Christian Cota Spring 2010 one-shoulder dress.

The first thing I said when I saw Jayma was, “Thank God she shortened her dress”.

If she’d kept the length she would’ve looked quite matronly and not as fun and sassy.

She added metallic silver accessories to her look which included Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ peep toes, and a Salvatore Ferragamo box clutch.

As it was a Chopard event Jayma dazzled in their jewels.

Head-to-toe I love this look.

Drew Barrymore @ 2010 V Festival

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Having helped organise Virgin’s V Festival a few years ago, I know what a massive coup it was for the organizers to have A list star Drew Barrymore hang out in their VIP lounge this weekend despite her not wearing the branded lanyard.

Boho chic would’ve been very easy for Drew to pull off, so she opted for a modern day Pocahontas look instead.

She looks like she born to channel festival chic pairing her suede fringed top with khaki trousers and brown riding boots.

No wellies here.

The ombre hair with plaits totally works in this setting so I’m surprised she opted to wear that brown felt hat.

Are you loving this look as much as I am?

X Factor' to axe "fragile" (LEGENDARY) Shirlena?

Shirlena Johnson could be dropped from The X Factor after it was revealed that that the singer has been diagnosed with serious mental health problems.

Johnson, who made it through her audition on Saturday's show with an arresting rendition of Duffy's 'Mercy', has apparently been described by psychiatric experts as a "ticking timebomb".

It is thought that Johnson's health may affect her ability to care for her 3-year-old daughter Mariah, and that her situation may worsen further if the singer achieves success on the ITV talent show.

According to The Sun, the 30-year-old had not divulged her issues to X Factor producers, who may now be forced to axe Johnson from the rest of the competition and scrap footage of her at Boot Camp.

An X Factor insider said: "Shirlena can no longer be part of the show. We had no idea about any of this as the information was not given to us by Shirlena when she applied.

"We take contestants' welfare extremely seriously. There is no way we would risk anyone's health or wellbeing on what is a very exhausting show."

The Salahi's ... Speidi wanna be's and hoarders?

With The Hills off the air and Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag in the middle of a divorce, we feel like we’ve been left with a void. Who could possibly entertain us and keep the tabloid magazines in business with their manufactured, made for reality TV antics as well as Speidi did? Fortunately for us, it looks like we have a contender: The Real Housewives of DC’s Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

The Salahis might be best known for infamously gate-crashing a presidential party - Spencer probably hit himself on the head for not coming up with that one – but they’ve now parlayed their 15 minutes of fame into a 30 minute reality show. Determined to become the Heidi and Spencer of the D.C. Real Housewives, Michaele and Tareq regularly try to hog the cameras and start fights with other cast members. Recalling Spencer Pratt’s public feud with Al Roker, the Salahis have also decided to start a celebrity fight of their own, choosing Whoopi Goldberg as their target after she recently interviewed them on The View.

Jessica Alba to Headline 'Spy Kids 4'

According to THR, Jessica Alba (The Killer Inside Me, Fantastic Four) is in talks to star in Spy Kids 4, writer-director Robert Rodriguez's planned reboot (of sorts) of the family-oriented Spy Kids franchise. Like Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, Spy Kids 4 will be, for better or for worse, released in 3D. Rodriguez obviously liked what he saw in Alba's supporting roles in Sin City five years ago and Machete, the low-budget, Mexploitation flick that opens September 3rd, to bring her back for a role in his next film.

In Spy Kids 4, Alba will play a former spy, the mother of a baby (like Alba in real life) and step-mother to two preteen children. The stepchildren will take over the "Spy Kids" mantle first worn by Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. In the previous installments, the parents, played by Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino, were supporting characters. If that's the case, Alba might be the most or second most, depending on who signs on to play her husband in the film, credit, but be off-screen for long periods of time.

While the other roles have yet to be cast, Banderas, Vega, and Sabara are expected to appear in Spy Kids 4, presumably in cameos or significantly smaller roles. Spy Kids 4 will be shot in Austin, Texas at Rodriguez'a Troublemakers Studios with a reported $30 million dollar budget. Principal photography is expected to begin next month.

I haven't actually seen these movies, but I can't hate on 'em because it's adorable that RobRod basically does them just for his kids. Also, FUCK YEAH MACHETE \m/

Almodovar's Creepy New Fetish Flick to Come Minus Penelope; Men and Lesbians Everywhere Stop Caring

As Monika first reported in May, Pedro Almodóvar's next movie is The Skin I'm In, a horror movie that begins shooting today which Almodóvar said will be "the harshest film I've ever written." The official casting list has been revealed, and surprisingly, his modern muse Penelope Cruz is nowhere to be found.

The Skin I'm In does reunite the director with Antonio Banderas, the star of Almodóvar's edgy Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!, which made novel use of a wind-up bath toy, but his female costar will be Elena Anaya, who was in Talk to Her. The Skin I'm In is based on the novel Tarantula by Thierry Jonquet, and while I'm sure some changes were made in its adaptation for the big screen, its description on, is certainly worth noting. It's slightly different than the shorter description on Amazon, which gives away all the goods. The main characters are a plastic surgeon who has an operating room in his basement and keeps his wife Eve locked up in their bedroom, a killer on the loose, and a kidnapper who tortures his prey in cruel and novel ways.

And about that surgeon: "Eve is only allowed out to be paraded at cocktail parties and on the last Sunday of each month, when the couple visit a young woman in a mental asylum. Following these outings, Lafargue humiliates Eve by forcing her to perform lewd sexual acts with strangers while he watches through a one-way mirror."

Perhaps it's not Cruz's recent marriage to Javier Bardem or a secret pregnancy that's keeping her away from the script, but that she doesn't want to end up in some sort of Story of O-esque scenario. Late-night Cinemax viewers might remember Anaya from more titillating fare like Sex and Lucia, so perhaps she was more comfortable or suited to the material.

It will be interesting to see what kind of changes Almodóvar has made to the story in his screenplay, but the text itself sounds quite different from the typical Eli Roth torture trip. I have no doubt that this auteur will manage to delve into this very dark tale and make it a delightfully squeamish thriller.

Penny + Pedro = cinematic OTP. Still, his other stuff is usually good, and this sounds My faves are Talk to Her and Bad Education; how about you, ONTD?

Lindsay Lohan - One Day to Freedom

As TMZ first reported, all signs are pointing to Lindsay Lohan being released from UCLA this week -- and we're hearing it will happen tomorrow.  Judge Elden Fox has decided not to issue an order today, but rather he will make a decision tomorrow at 8:30 AM PT.

As we've told you, the doctors at UCLA think Judge Marsha Revel's mandate that Lindsay spend 90 days in rehab is excessive, and they are recommending an early release. 

Sources tell us going into last weekend, the plan was for a Wednesday release, and all signs now point to Judge Fox releasing Lindsay tomorrow morning and ordering outpatient care.


It seems like just yesterday, ONTD was posting about her going off to jail.

Dustin Hoffman will be in LITTLE FOCKERS

Nearly everyone who has seen the LITTLE FOCKERS trailer has asked the same thing: where's Dustin Hoffman? As many know, the actor and studio weren't able to agree on his pay rate. Hoffman wanted a certain amount, Universal didn't want to pay and Hoffman was gone. It's a shame because he was easily the funniest part of MEET THE FOCKERS.

Well, Hoffman may be back. Deadline just reported that LITTLE FOCKERS is about to film some extensive pick-up shots this September. Appearing in four of those six scenes will be Hoffman. According to the report, the film is in such serious trouble that Jay Roach and John Hamburg contacted Dustin Hoffman and convinced him to come back for the third film. The site says Hoffman will appear in several scenes opposite his onscreen wife Barbra Streisand and then a big scene at the end with other major characters. The other re-shoots concern Ben Stiller and the children of the film.

We've heard that LITTLE FOCKERS is experiencing some problems (i.e. it's horrible) but it's surprising to see the series producers reaching out to Hoffman like this. I don't know what is in those six scenes they're filming but it's good to hear Father Focker will be back. Will this repair the ailing movie? Probably not, but at least it'll give us more Hoffman.

"If God is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise"

Spike Lee Talks Katrina, New Orleans and His New Two-Part Documentary

Mr. Lee spoke recently with Dave Itzkoff for the ArtsBeat blog of The New York Times about the making of “If God Is Willing and da Creek Don’t Rise,” how it was altered by news events and some of the famous figures who still would not speak to him on camera. These are excerpts from that conversation.

Q. How long after “When the Levees Broke” did you decide to go back to New Orleans?

A. We knew even before we finished. It was just a matter of deciding when we’d return.

We saw the fifth anniversary’s approach, so we said let’s go back for five years. That was a fortunate decision or an unfortunate decision, depending on how you look at it. Our first day, we were shooting the Super Bowl. I had an NFL Films crew, which Roger Goodell was so kind to let us hire out, and my regular crew was in New Orleans watching people watch the game in this bar in Treme called Sweet Lorraine’s. Then they rushed over to the French Quarter to film the celebration. We thought that we had the end of the movie, because not only did they win the Super Bowl, it’s right in the middle of Mardi Gras.

Q. So at that point you thought you were making an uplifting movie about the city’s recovery?

A. Definitely. We forget what they’d gone through. When you’ve been stomped on, kicked and all this other stuff, and something great like this happens to you, it uplifts everybody.

Q. What would have happened to your narrative if the Saints lost the game?

A. It wasn’t going to happen. That was never a question. Peyton Manning, he might be the best quarterback in the N.F.L., but Peyton Manning, Unitas, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana, nobody was beating the Saints that day. They had a cause. If I was a betting man —

Q. If you were a betting man, you probably wouldn’t be able to afford to make as many movies as you do.

A. No, if I was a betting man, I’d be able to finance a couple more. Because I’d have bet the house on the Saints.

Doctor Who does something they should've done years ago

Doctor Who and Amy Pond are being transported to a new dimension - by moving into video games for the first time.

Gamers will be able to swap Sonic The Hedgehog for sonic screwdrivers when the Time Lord appears on the Wii and DS consoles in the coming months.

The Doctor and Amy - played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan - will be turned into computerised versions for the games Doctor Who: Evacuation Earth and Doctor Who: Return To Earth.

The BBC's commercial arm BBC Worldwide has worked with developer Asylum Entertainment and distributor Koch Media to create the adventures.

Fans will be able to become the Doctor and Amy in the family games which have been created together with show bosses. Plans also include launching a remote control unit and stylus shaped like a sonic screwdriver.

Simon Bailey, managing director of Asylum Entertainment, said: "We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with BBC Worldwide on these two new games.

"It is our firm belief that the franchise has massive potential on the Nintendo DS and Wii formats and it's an honour to be bringing Doctor Who video games to the show's huge fan base."

Evacuation Earth will be for the DS while Return To Earth is for the Wii, and both will launch in the UK, Australia and locations across Europe.

In October a live action stage version of the show will launch at major venues in nine UK cities.


I've been waiting for this for so long! I hope it's an intelligent RPG, even something like the latest Harry Potter games would be fun. I REALLY want a Wii remote shaped like a sonic screwdriver!

'Miss Universe’ hits all-time ratings low

by James Hibberd | August 24, 2010

These ratings aren't going to win any beauty contests: NBC's presentation of the 60th annual Miss Universe Pageant hit an all-time Nielsen low.

Even with those semi-topless promotional photos of pageant contestants on the Internet, the Donald Trump-produced contest was down 10% in the ratings from last year's telecast, which was held on a Sunday.

Miss Universe was seen by 6 million viewers and garnered a 1.9 preliminary rating among adults 18-49. NBC pointed out this is the network's best ratings in the time period all summer and that the show did not decline among total viewers. A special "Minute to Win It" (5.3 million, 1.6) opened the night.

ABC's "Bachelor Pad" (5.9 million, 2.0) appeared to stabilize after last week's sizable drop, rebounding a tenth of a rating point. Audiences continued to fall off before "Dating in the Dark" (4.1 million, 1.6), but the show was up 5%.

Fox had "Lie to Me" (5 million, 1.7), on par with last week.

Slow news day: new R. Kelly single

The next time someone tries to tell you R. Kelly is not a gifted songwriter, play them his new single, “When A Woman Loves.” His more typical sex-crazed/absurdist/R&B thug shticks can be fun, too — but he’s arguably at his best when he’s penning sweet, sappy love songs like this one.

Check out “When A Woman Loves” after the jump. This could have been a hit 40 or even 50 years ago, easy. And Kelly sings it with real soul and verve. The vocal breakdown that starts around the 3:15 mark is particularly awesome. I love it, cheesy canned brass section and all.

A representative for Jive Records tells EW that “When A Woman Loves” is the first single from an upcoming Kelly project, but confirmed details are scarce beyond that. (According to Rap Radar, it could be from one of three upcoming Kelly albums.)

Award-Winning Anime Director Satoshi Kon Passes Away

Director of Perfect Blue, Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paranoia Agent, Paprika

Jim Vowles, a member of the Otakorp Board of Directors for the Otakon convention, has announced on Tuesday that director Satoshi Kon has passed away. Kon was 47. The staff of Otakon confirmed his passing with MADHOUSE studio founder Masao Maruyama. Maruyama had wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday night in Japan that an important director of the studio had suddenly passed away. However, Maruyama declined to name the director at the time.

Kon began working as a manga creator on such works as Kaikisen (1990) before deciding to delve into the anime industry with the script and art direction of Katsuhiro Otomo's Memories (1995). He first drew worldwide attention with his feature film directorial debut, Perfect Blue, in 1997. He would follow that with a string of critically acclaimed anime projects: Millennium Actress (2001), Tokyo Godfathers (2003), Paranoia Agent (2004), and Paprika (2006). At the time of passing, Kon was working at MADHOUSE on a new feature film called Yume-Miru Kikai.


Mods, the links are there to cite his work as a lot of people may not be familiar with his name but something he has done instead. His work in animation is pretty popular.

Nicki Minaj Says Critics Pray For Her Downfall, "People Expect Me To Lose"

Young Money's Nicki Minaj recently spoke out on the criticism she's received and why she feels people want to see her achieve success. Minaj also gave a brief update on how far along her Pink Friday debut is to this point.
"I think I'm about three quarters of the way done," Minaj revealed in an interview. "To be honest, every record is my favorite song, I love all of the record I have chosen for the album so far. They're all different facets of my personalty and they're all unique and to me they seem like those kinds of songs you could play over and over and over. Like, even with me, I get sick and tired of my music quickly...I haven't confirmed any artists yet. I've done so many features so far that right now, it's about me expressing myself -- I'm not going into my album thinking 'OK, I'm going to get this one and that one.' If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't...I feel like I have to do so much work, more work than other people. People, to me, expect me to lose. They think I'm one dimensional a lot of times and they don't realize I'm really someone that creates music. You've never heard me create music. There's nothing I have out that [sounds like] Pink Friday." (Honey Mag)

Can We See Phil Kiss Dylan Instead?

Modern Family's Gay Kiss Is Happening...and Was Planned All Along
Good news for Facebook campaigners and anyone else who's been waiting with bated breath to see when Modern Family's Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) would pucker up...

The kiss is happening. In fact, they're shooting a Cam-Mitchell "PDA" episode soon. And show boss Steve Levitan wants you to know something very important about it:

It was planned all along. Before the Cam-Mitch kiss controversy started up.

"We've had an episode planned for a long time that dealt with that subject of [Cameron and Mitchell's PDA]," Levitan told us at a cocktail reception for Emmy-nominated producers last night. "So it almost bothers us that there was a little bit of controversy about it. Because we don't want to appear that we're answering that criticism. But sure enough, we're dealing with public displays of affection, and the power of a kiss. Seems simple, but intriguing—I hope."

"I think it's great that people care so much," Stonestreet says. "I always am confused why they don't worry about shows that don't have any gay characters on them. They should put some focus on them as well, but we'll give the audience exactly what they need."

"I mean, Ed and Sofia also never kiss," Ferguson points out, "but they seem to care more ‘cause we are the gay couple. But we're all proceeding and progressing and moving forward, there'll be lots of everything."

Maybe so. But Ed O'Neill still isn't satisfied. "My idea was Christmas," he jokes to me, "but go right to oral sex. You know, in the easy chair by the tree with Christmas carols. Maybe the camera outside, amber light, snow gently falling, some soft moaning. And we go out on that."

And this guy was the only Modern Family actor not nominated for Actor in a Comedy at the Emmys? Puh-lease!

I hope the kiss looks like this so you annoying fuckers get exactly what you asked for

Kurt's Glee Boyfriend: Tall Blonde With "Pouty Lips"

It looks like Kurt will finally get his star quarterback on Glee.

No, we're not talking a romance with Finn, but...

Rumors that new cast member Chord Overstreet will play Chris Colfer's on-screen boyfriend appear to be true.

"They've cast him already," Jane Lynch told us last night at the Audi and Chopard Emmy party when we asked about Kurt's much-anticpiated love interest. "He becomes the new star quarterback and he's going to be Kurt's boyfriend."

While Lynch said she couldn't remember the name of the actor who is playing Kurt's beau, she described the lucky guy as "a good looking kid."

"He's tall, boyish with straight blonde hair and big fat, pouty lips," she said.

Sounds like Overstreet to us.

Overstreet, who has appeared on iCarly, recently joined Glee as Sam Evans, a footballing transfer student who first befriends Finn, but eventually becomes his nemesis.

Show poobah Ryan Murphy remains tight-lipped about the upcoming romance. "We're working on it," he teased us at the Creative Arts Emmys.

Murphy did say that Rachel and Finn will be very much together next season. As for skirt-chasing Puck, he said, "He's struggling. He's torn about who to have sex with next."

Does anyone else think he resembles a certain...pig? Take away the blonde hair and fatten him up is all I'm sayin!

Real Housewives Daily Tale

Jacqueline: There Are Reasons We Hate Danielle

Jacqueline Laurita
realizes she may have come off as “bitter” and overly interested in the drama relating to costar — and former friend — Danielle Staub during the second season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which ended Monday night. But she’s clear about one thing: there was a reason for the animosity. “Things were getting out of control,” Laurita tells PEOPLE. “There was other stuff going on that we didn’t talk about because it would draw too much attention to it. If we addressed the lies she was spreading, it [would] keep it going.”
In drama that played out on the show, Staub had engaged Laurita’s daughter, Ashley Holmes, 19, in an online war of words, before a physical altercation occurred last fall, during which Holmes pulled her hair. Staub pressed assault charges and Holmes was found guilty and had to pay a $189 fine.
But Laurita says there was even more drama going on behind the scenes. “If there was nothing going on we wouldn’t be so angry with her. Out of nowhere? Obviously something was being said and done to warrant that anger,” she says. “It was stuff she was saying about everybody. She had a mission to destroy people, but me getting angry is just fueling the fire.”

Shame On You Danny Jones From Mcfly

McFly's Danny spill 'causes £10k damage'
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Danny Jones has accidentally caused £10,000 worth of damage to a radio studio while promoting McFly's new single.

The group were visiting Real Radio Scotland when Jones knocked over a cup of coffee into the mixing desk. The "sophisticated and very expensive" piece of equipment was left "absolutely useless".

Despite having a no-liquid rule in the studio, presenter Paul Harper allowed the band members to have their coffees while recording the chat.

"I couldn't believe it when the coffee fell into the desk," he said. "Danny started shouting to the other guys, 'Someone get your T-shirt off and mop it!'"

He added: "He also broke his 3GS iPhone in the commotion! Poor Danny was very apologetic and I'm sure he felt pretty bad about what happened."

Harper posted a video of the aftermath on YouTube. In the clip, Tom Fletcher jokes that Jones is "notorious" for spilling his drinks.

"When Danny comes over to my house, he spills something every time," he revealed. "That is not an exaggeration!"

McFly release their new single 'Party Girl' on September 5.

I hope he pays for the repair of all of that equipment.
also everybody better by "Party Girl" on Sep. 5
Mcfly needs a tag please?

Update on Stephen King's 'Pet Sematary' Remake

Of course with today's remake trend we knew it was only a matter of time before our beloeved Stephen King novel and fan boy flick would be remade. Is it nessacary? Of course not. Will we see it? Yes, but I am sure we will be urning for the pressense of the late, legendary Fred Gwynne who portrayed Jud like we imagine no one else will be able to...

We've known and reported on this project in the past but today David Kajganich, writer of screen plays for "The Invasion" and "Blood Creek" gave the latest he knows about the remake that until now has been dead in the water.

From what Kajganich says in the interview below, "Pet Sematary" seems to be going in the right direction at least on paper.

"I should say up front that Pet Sematary is my favorite King novel and adapting it was one of the best screenwriting experiences I’ve had, creatively speaking. In its modern way, I think it is easily the equal of anything in the literary canon by Hawthorne or Poe, so I approached the book as a piece of literature as opposed to a horror concept to be pillaged. It was a pure pleasure.

After I turned in my first draft, Paramount went through a top-down regime change and I was given a new executive who had creative ideas I just couldn’t stand behind. They wanted to appeal to younger audiences, so there was talk of making a teenaged Ellie the main character, and etc. It was really heartbreaking, but that’s how the process works sometimes. The studio was gracious enough to let me out of my contract and the project was dormant at the studio until very recently.

The current news is that Paramount has restarted the process with a new producer and writer (Lorenzo Di Bonaventura and Matt Greenberg). I wish I could tell you something about their approach, or how it’s going, but I’m entirely out of the loop now."

We pray this does justice to both Stephen King and the 1989 classic film that it is trying to update. Director Mary Lambert left some big shoes to fill and is it possible for them to make Zelda any creepier? We say no. Stay tuned for more information about this project as we get it.


If they fuck this up I will be so pissed. No slutty Ellie pls and ty

also sorry for the Zelda photo but I just watched the original and I want you all to suffer with me

'Brothers & Sisters': Bobby Soto cast as Kevin and Scotty's possible adopted son

Kevin (played by Matthew Rhys) and Scotty's (Luke Macfarlane) story lines in "Brothers & Sisters" has a lot of fans wondering what's next for them in Season 5.

Last season, we saw them both go through career shakeups. Yet, one of their bigger storylines involved the hardship of building their family using a surrogate mother.

In next season's one year time jump, executive producer David Marshall Grant, tells us exclusively that the surrogate pregnancy doesn't work out.

"After a year or so, [Kevin and Scotty] are in a place of certain disappointment about that," Grant tells Zap2it. "I think it has taken a lot out of Kevin and I think they put a lot into the surrogate."

Enter young actor, Bobby Soto, who has been cast as Mateo, a troubled teenager who Kevin meets at his law practice (yep, in the one year time jump, Kevin has gone back to practicing law).

"I think that there is the possibility that this kid who has come from a very troubled home," Grant tells us. "And may end up in foster care is maybe somebody that Kevin and Scotty might be able to help along the line, which would be something that could be in place of any more attempts to get a baby."

Soto has appeared in episodes of "Cold Case," "The Closer," and he will appear in an upcoming episode of "Lie To Me." We'll meet his character in the Season 5 premiere of "Brothers and Sisters" titled "Homecoming" airing Sunday, September 26 on ABC.

Paul F. Tompkins, John Hodgman, & Julie Klausner join TL/Rx on the Great White Way

Ted Leo mentioned he was working on a broadway musical months ago on The Best Show with Tom Scharpling, and he alluded to musical theater again in a tl;dr cryptic blog entry last week (complete with embedded video clips of "Across the Universe" and "American Idiot").

This is the broadway baby he was referring to:

The video is written and directed by none other than Jersey's own Tom Scharpling and features Paul F. Tompkins as a broadway impresario, John Hodgman as a notable theater critic, and Julie Klausner as a choreographer.

Is it too late to nominate this video for a People's Choice VMA? Because this is a music video for the people.


Postscript: The Best Show with Tom Scharpling airs tonight at 9 PM Eastern, and you can stream it live via WFMU. Don't think about it!

Logan Marshall-Green 2

Takers film review from The Hollywood Reporter.

Bottom Line: Strong cast and solid script are undermined by hyperactive direction.

By now there have been so many classic heist movies that it's hard to imagine a fresh variation on the theme, but the genre never quite loses its appeal to filmmakers or audiences. Although "Takers" pales alongside "Rififi"or "The Killing," it's a serviceable B-movie that will do decent business during the dog days of August.

2010 Summer Vibrations

Janelle Monae:
Janelle Monae’s The Archandroid was one of the best albums of the summer. Monae’s superb interpretation of R&B and soul, rock, alternative, and even jazz, is an artistic achievement that doesn’t deserve to be ignored. Her album was on repeat in my iPod for weeks. Pick this album up NOW if you haven’t done so already.

Scarlett and Ryan Bring Their PDA on a Romantic European Vacation

Scarlett Johansson was ready for a brisk, picturesque walk in the Swiss Alps yesterday while on vacation with her husband Ryan Reynolds. The couple arrived in Europe a few days ago, and they also were spotted in matching grays while on a recent walk through Vienna, Austria. Scarlett and Ryan are enjoying their Summer vacation abroad after planting roots back in LA with the purchase of a huge modern home in Los Feliz. They both have new film projects to maintain their real estate portfolio — Ryan signed onto the thriller Safe House, while Scarlett's teaming up with Vince Vaughn in the comedy Old St. Louis. The couple also still has passion projects, like Ryan's PSA about the effects of the Gulf oil spill.

Kimberley misses Girls Aloud

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

KIMBERLEY Walsh has told OK! Magazine she can't wait to get back together with the rest of Girls Aloud.

OK! columnist Kimberley Walsh told us she misses Girls Aloud and wants to get back on the road.

She told this week's OK! Magazine: "I will get excited [when we get back together] because we do miss each other and as much as it's crazy mayhem it is good fun and it is nice having the girls to support you.

"It's different being on your own. Bittersweet - there's good and bad to everything isn't there?"

Our girl Kimberley, who like Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Cheryl Cole and Sarah Harding has taken 12 months out to focus on individual projects, says she's just dying to get back on stage.

She added: "I just love performing and I also really like working. So although we're supposed to be having a bit of a break, I don't want to rest too much, because I get bored."

But she's well aware that being a pop star has a shelf life.

She told us: "Some people do get a really long career out of it but you can never assume that. So yeah it's sensible to try other things."

And could there be a Girls Aloud episode of US hit show Glee on the cards?

"That would be amazing. Why can't they do that?! You could completely turn our songs in a a theatrical direction if you wanted. It would be amazing - put it out there please!"

Kim Kardashian’s Ass Is Camera Shy

Kim Kardashian isn’t normally one to shy away from the camera, but for some reason that’s exactly what she’s doing here. Covering her giant ass with her hand is just embarrassing. I’m pretty sure that even if she had one of those giant foam hands you see at football games she wouldn’t be able to hide that massive thing. She’s getting up there in age, maybe her genetics are kicking in and she’s finally lost control of that thing. It was a good run, but everything must come to an end.

Elizabeth Hurley Swears By 'Almost Nothing For Breakfast'

Elizabeth Hurley is tweeting about her body again. Monday she assured fans her breasts are natural, and Tuesday she shared a diet tip.

"Btw my diet survived the onslaught of phenomenal vacation food-doctors disagree, but I swear by almost nothing for breakfast for adults," she tweeted on Tuesday. "Mugs of hot water first thing, maybe an espresso and a few oat cakes mid morning."

British oatcakes are high-fiber crackers that have about 50 calories a piece.

Last week she was on vacation on a yacht in the South of France, and tweeted, "Another workout in the gym with the Australian and an awful lot of hot water. Sick of it now."

After she gave birth in 2002, Hurley famously holed up in Elton John's house and ate nothing but oatcakes until she had lost all the baby weight.


I love her endlessly, but Idk, breakfast is the most important meal of the day :/

Mary-Louise Parker on Her Cameo in ‘Howl’

If you watch closely, you can spot Mary-Louise Parker in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in the coming Allen Ginsberg biopic “Howl.” Parker appears in a courtroom scene as an expert witness who testifies to the obscene nature of Ginsberg’s famous poem. Given her star status and the likelihood that she was paid scale, Parker’s brief appearance struck us as curious. During a recent interview, we asked the actress what led her to take the role.

Burying Her Head In the 'Weeds'

Ms. Parker's role as a suburban mother turned drug dealer on "Weeds" earned her a Golden Globe in 2006. But as the series begins its sixth season, critics and fans have suggested that what began as deft satire of suburbia has fallen into to nihilism and soap-opera farce.

Ms. Parker spoke with the Journal about the criticism and about her blink-and-you-missed-it appearance in the upcoming Allen Ginsberg biopic, "Howl."

Georgia May Jagger for Hudson Jeans

A few months ago Hudson Jeans shot their Autumn/Winter 2010 advertising campaign at the Alder Mansion in Yonkers, New York. Starring Georgia May Jagger for a second season, the advertising campaign was set to be sultry and all about the jeans like the duo’s first outing. And we have an exclusive look at the campaign as well as the other images you’ve seen floating around the internet.

Sex appeal is where it’s at for the 18 year old model and photographer Mario Sorrenti in this moody campaign.

“Georgia May is a true embodiment of the spirit of the Hudson brand,” says Ben Taverniti, creative director at Hudson Jeans. “She doesn’t try, she’s just cool. She has that certain Je ne sais quoi.”

Though your eyes may be telling you that denim is just denim, Jagger is modeling designs from Hudson Jeans Classic, Custom, Capsule and Collection lines.

What do you think of the ad campaign?

Go and Pay to See 'Scott Pilgrim' Right Now

by John Lopez
Let me get straight to the point: Go and pay to see Scott Pilgrim right now. Why, you ask? Well, check out last weekend’s box-office totals. See Scott Pilgrim? Keep looking—it’s down there at No. 10. It made only $5 million dollars in its second weekend of release, a 53 percent drop from the first weekend, with a total domestic gross of $20 million. That’s not good. (Trust me when I say “not good”: Universal not only spent a lot making this, it spent a lot marketing it. They had to market the hell out of it because it was something you probably hadn’t heard about before—you know, the way movies used to be.)

The film’s dismal performance is pretty disheartening for anyone who’s a fan of the new, as opposed to the stale, trite, and cliche, because whatever Scott Pilgrim is, it is definitely not stale, trite, or cliche. It doesn’t redo old ideas, revisit threadbare conceits, or remake twice-told stories in a tired way. In fact, it’s good. Or, if you’re searching for movie-critic adjectives, you could call it “different,” “fresh,” and “innovative,” if not “cool,” “fun,” “heart-warming,” “intelligent,” and/or “awesome.” (Have fun with those, blurb-makers!) Listen, if A.O. “Nashville’s-the-Greatest-Movie-Ever” Scott can recommend a film aimed at video-game-junkie twentysomethings, whose themes and characters are as important to him as a Surgeon General’s Warnings is to Don Draper, there’s probably something there. And if you haven’t noticed, it’s been an atrocious year for movies. That’s not just our opinion: it’s so bad even studio executives are ringing up agents with frantic “Oh my God, what have we done” conference calls to ask, “Oh my God, what have we done?”

Black Widow: The Only Female Avenger

The excitement for what Joss Whedon might bring to The Avengers certainly exploded last month when the entire cast of the movie appeared on the Marvel Panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, but one thing long-time "Whedonholics" were wondering was what the man behind "Buffy the Vampire
Slayer" and "Dollhouse," two very female-centric television shows, would be able to achieve with a superhero group made up mostly of men.

Talking to the Sunday Herald Sun (via Moviehole) for his upcoming "Australian tour"--apparently, Joss Whedon's rock star status has him touring now--Whedon confirmed that Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow would not be the only female role in the movie:

"It is true that the movie is only going to have one female Avenger, but she will not be the only female character," he told them, which makes us think some of the women from the other Marvel movies--maybe Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts from the "Iron Man" movies?--would be making appearances in the movie.

Whedon is working hard on rewriting the script but he remained mum on what the plot would be, though he did say that it would incorporate a number of different Avengers stories, both from the original comics and the "Ultimates" version of the characters: 

"It will be a new story that has many things from different arcs of the comics in it. There is no one Avengers story that you can just do the way that you can do the origin of Spider-Man. You really have to cull from the original and The Ultimates, which is one of The Avengers titles."

So we don't really know that much more except that The Avengers  will continue the path paved by the previous Marvel Studios movies rather than being entirely faithful to any one version of the comic books.

The Avengers is scheduled to open May 4, 2012.


(IDK. Even though Wasp isn't a favorite character of mine,
I still think they should introduce her, considering she's a founding member.
Although, the only character I want to see is Scarlet Witch [and, maybe Ms. Marvel];
but that might not happen if they don't buy the rights from Fox)
