In Reversal, Armstrong Is Said to Weigh Admitting Drug Use

Lance Armstrong, who this fall was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for doping and barred for life from competing in all Olympic sports, has told associates and antidoping officials that he is considering publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career, according to several people with direct knowledge of the situation. He would do this, the people said, because he wants to persuade antidoping officials to restore his eligibility so he can resume his athletic career.

Megan Ganz leaves Community for Modern Schamily

No one is going to be surprised, come May, if NBC schedules the series finale of Community. It’s been through so much, with the loss of its showrunner, the loss of Chevy Chase, and the battles its faced with NBC over its scheduling and renewals, really, since the very first season. We should probably be thankful that i

got four seasons, as most of us were with Arrested Development getting three seasons on Fox. At a certain point, you just have to say thanks for privilege, thanks for fighting for so long for the fans, and thanks for the wonderful, hilarious memories.

That’s what Megan Ganz — one of the best writers on NBC’s Community, the voice behind some of the best episodes (the documentary episodes, “Basic Lupine Urology” — has done. She’s moving on, taking a staff position on Modern Family, as she explained to fans of Community o Reddit esterday.

I do not like the sound of this. So basically Community is dead. Long live Modern Family~


Sarah Michelle Gellar Returning to Television....Again?

Sarah Michelle Gellar may be back on the small screen next fall as the star of a new half-hour comedy, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The potential (and currently untitled) series, which is being developed at 20th Century Fox TV (home of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), chronicles the hijinks parents get into while their kids are at home.

Gellar would play the wife/mother.

The actress — who attempted a TV comeback last year with The CW’s now-cancelled Ringer — became interested in the project after reading the Shepard Boucher-penned spec script. (Boucher’s credits include serving as a staff writer on the TBS comedy Men at Work.)

The project will be shopped to the major networks in the coming weeks.


David Hemingson (Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23) and Margaret Riley (Love and Other Drugs) are attached as EPs.


I'll take SMG any day of the week.

So sorry mods! You know how it goes :P

Rick Ross holds a baby mountain lion while wearing its cousin

Idgi, why is he wearing that fug coat. Is it like a Walking Dead thing where the humans bathe in zombie entrails to throw the zombies off their scent? Does he think he will fool that cat into thinking he is also a cat and it won't scratch his eyes out jw

I think Rick Ross & Drake need to have a playdate with some kitty cats.

Liam & Louis return from Sweden – Niall did NOT get a tattoo!

Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson have returned from their quick European trip.  The One Direction boys took a quick flight to Sweden this week and were pictured meeting and greeting fans, in various states of dress.  At one point Daddy Directioner was rocking a onesie in public and he seemed to enjoy the strange looks he got from some passers by. The fangirls didn’t mind either and Twitter exploded with young Swedish 1D enthusiasts who were elated to meet their idols.

The lads will start back to work this week and last night Liam and Louis were spotted in the airport, returning the UK. Niall Horan revealed that they are kicking off rehearsals for the upcoming One Direction world tour very soon and tweeted:  “Rehearsals for TMH tour start soon, cannot wait”

He also wanted to quash some rumours, after it was reported that he got a tattoo on his collarbone. Some fans had tweeted that the Irish singer had finally succumbed to pressure from his bandmate and had his first piece of body art. He insisted it isn’t true though and wrote:  “Gettin a lot tweets about tattoos! I didn’t get a tattoo! Not plannin on gettin one for a while either haha”
We don’t know when he’d have time to get a tattoo anyway, as Nialler has spent most of this week hanging with the lads and going to football matches. He even tried his hand at monopoly a few days ago but it doesn’t sound like it went too well and Ed Sheeran tweeted:  “monopoly with @zakarywalters @NicMinns @joshharte1 & @NiallOfficial and the irish lads, we all lost intrest and now are back to drinking”

Someone Must Be a Hardcore Martin Freeman Stan To Do This

You've seen the fantastic The Hobbit/The Office mash-up, right?

A rather brilliant person has taken chunks of dialogue, and a few other bits, from The Office and spliced it into The Hobbit. It’s very good.

When you see it, it’s obvious. The title character from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is played by Martin Freeman, who made his name in Ricky Gervais’ masterful The Office. That inspired Eagerbeaverfilms to put the two together to make one really good video.

As well as Freeman repeating his dialogue as Tim from the sitcom we also have Gervais appear as David Brent/Gandalf and even Keith turns up as Bombur.

But easily the best bit is the Gareth/Gollum character, which is exceptional.

Make sure you stay around for the credits too, which are Airplane-esque in their funniness.

Azealia Banks Dropped From Interscope?

Word on the street is that Azealia Banks has been dropped from her label home Interscope Records. It seems like they have not renewed some short-term contract for new recordings from the Harlem-bred 21-year-old. Looks like they just dropped her, straight up. Not sure of the source, but she was supposed to drop and album in the first quarter of this year and it seems like Broke With Expensive Taste will be on hold.

Dakota Fanning Tried Meeting G-Dragon and Failed.

Hollywood star Dakota Fanning called G-Dragon, from the Kpop group Big Bang, directly (update that it was actually her agent) and she said she wants to meet him.

According to G-Dragon's close acquaintance, Dakota Fanning will visit Korea on January 5th and will stay in Korea. She wants to meet him during her stays. She is G-Dragon's big fan and she wants to have dinner with him.

G-Dragon's close acquaintance said "Dakota Fanning and G-Dragon will meet at YG building. There's no minutely schedule yet, but these two star's meeting will be a big issue."

Unfortunately for Dakota shortly after this spread on twitter came this from YG
YG Entertainment said that GD is also a fan of Dakota Fanning, but because of conflicting schedule they are going to meet next time. 

Update #2 from Dakota's side:
However, a contradicting statement was released by Dakota’s representatives, who stated, “Dakota Fanning never called G-Dragon, and they never promised to meet in Korea. There’s no truth to the rumors.” As well as, “Dakota’s side never called G-Dragon’s side. It is not true that they were in contact to meet up,” emphasizing that the reports were completely false.

Rumor: John Krasinski Up for Star-Lord in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY; Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade, and Dave Bautista Vie for Drax the Destroyer

Earlier today we added Michael Rosenbaum to the shortlist to play Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in Guardians of the Galaxy alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jim Sturgess, and Zachary Levi. One more possibility has surfaced for Star-Lord, but the casting rumors have branched out with a shortlist for Drax the Destroyer. First up: CBM hears that Marvel is “still high on” John Krasinski for Star-Lord, a “master strategist and combat expert who wears an ability-enhancing suit and pilots a psychically-linked ship.” Marvel had their eye on Krasinski for Captain America once upon a time. Although that didn’t work out the studio is still understandably keen on Krasinski. Peter Quill is set up to be the central character in James Gunn‘s adaptation of the Marvel comic.

For Drax the Destroyer, Marvel is reportedly looking at Isaiah Mustafa, Brian Patrick Wade, and Dave Bautista. Interesting list: Mustafa is best known as the Old Spice Guy and Bautista is a former WWE professional wrestler. Wade by comparison is just your typical actor—given his unspectacular resume, we can conclude Marvel is not seeking big names to play Drax, a superhuman warrior created to defeat Thanos. Hit the jump for character bios.

The man JJ Abrams let see Star Trek Into Darkness as a dying wish, has passed away. RIP Daniel Craft


Even if you don’t know his name, chances are strong that you’ve heard the story of Daniel Craft. You probably know his name because he was the ‘Star Trek’ fan who was granted his final wish of seeing ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, but he was also a member of New York’s Subway Cinema and helped organize the city’s increasingly popular Asian Film Festival. Last night, he passed away.
