Bryan Cogman discusses The One True King of Westeros, the torturing of Theon, and more


Jonathan: As a fan of the show and books, I’ve noticed that the show really revels in having scenes that pair off certain characters and their relationships in ways that can’t be done in the books, especially with non-POV characters. The Robert and Cersei scene from season one, Arya and Tywin’s scenes, Varys and Olenna, all come to mind, along with many others. When making these scenes, do you just sort of think “what would happen if character A and character B had a conversation?” or is there more that goes into it? Also, are there any specific characters that you would personally be really interested in pairing off in one of these types of scenes, where you just set the two characters down in a scene together and sort of see what happens next (regardless of location, canon, and/or their respective states of being alive or dead)?

Bryan: It varies from scene to scene. In some cases, it’s “wouldn’t it be fun if these two got together?” and you get a scene like Bronn & The Hound in “Blackwater”. In Season One (as I’ve talked about before) it was more of out necessity — some of hte episodes were running short and we needed new scenes that could be relatively low cost and use our existing sets, so you got those two-handers like Robert/Cersei. But most of the time, from Season Two on, it has to do with new or adjusted story lines — for instance, the expanded King’s Landing marriage plot of Season Three which was adapted to heavily involve Varys, hence the scene he shared with Olenna. So it varies, but, yes, we do love doing it.

BANKS-w724


Hometown: Los Angeles.

The lineup: Banks (vocals, keyboards).

The background: Banks doesn't have a first name, but she does have a phone number, and she plastered it all over the web recently. "Hello world!" she exclaimed, virtually. "I like making connections outside of a computer screen. Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have never really been my thing. So my manager is going to run the Social Media stuff.

NBC's 'Hannibal': The gag reel! -- EXCLUSIVE

The rule of thumb is: The more serious the project, the funnier the gag reel. And you can’t get much more deadly serious than NBC’s stylishly Kubrickian thriller Hannibal, which impressed fans and established a passionate fan base last season. Below is a couple minutes from the show’s gag reel that just screened at the show’s Comic-Con panel.
Bonus! We also have the details on Hannibal‘s home video release: Season 1 will launch Sept. 24. In addition to the 12 episodes that aired on NBC, the DVD includes the full version of an episode pulled from the schedule in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting. Full features are listed below the clip.

‘Free Willy’ Turns 20: Catching Up With Star Jason James Richter



If you were a child growing up in the ’90s, you probably saw the film Free Willy. (And you probably watched it so many times your VHS tape got too worn out to play.) If you were one of those kids who saw and fell in love with the movie, about the unlikely bond between a boy and a whale, you definitely wanted to be that boy. After all, how cool would it have been to play with a giant whale all day? Well, Jason James Richter was that boy. And, he confirms, it was extremely cool.

Now brace yourself for this next bit of information.

July 16 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Free Willy, the small family film that defied all expectations to earn a whale-size $77 million at the domestic box office, roughly $149 million when adjusted for inflation, and spawn two sequels. It also turned Jason James Richter, who was just 13 when Free Willy hit theaters, into a Teen Beat–covering, mobbed-in-the-grocery-store millionaire.

He can’t believe it’s been 20 years, either.

“It makes me feel old, dude,” Richter, who is now 33 and diving headfirst back into an acting career, tells The Daily Beast. “I’ve had kids come to me and say, ‘Oh, I loved your movie when I was a kid and I became a marine biologist.’ It’s crazy.”

Boosh- At The Barbican

That's right ladies and gentlemen, it's time for a glockenspiel solo.



Ably supported by musical skills of Oly Ralfe , [Noel and Julian] play as part of Beck's Song Reader night at the Barbican in London. The LP was actually a book of 20 songs of sheet music, which musicians were asked to interpret themselves and perform as they like. (...) the boys have made it every inch a Boosh song

Noel told XFM: "We're so excited to be playing with Beck tonight, he's an absolute genius! He's one of our biggest influences and the song they gave us is actually pretty Booshy. It's perfect."
The Mighty Boosh haven't played together since their special one off performance for a Franz Zappa tribute gig in 2010. They are planning another one off in LA this October, when they play Jack Black's comedy festival, Festival Supreme.

Orlando Bloom as Romeo with a Black Juliet

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The first image of Orlando Bloom as Romeo from the upcoming Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet has been released.
The actor will be taking on the role of the star-crossed lover alongside two-time Tony Award nominee Condola Rashad in the mixed-raced contemporary production.
The simple yet effective image shows the characters dressed in crisp white shirts gazing at each other while lying on a bed.

Leveaux’s production will feature Shakespeare’s original language while in a modern setting.


Further conflict is added to the tragedy as the Montague family is white and the Capulets black.


The race issue was addressed in the press release: ‘While race defines the family lineages, the original cause of the ‘ancient quarrel,’ passed down by successive generations to their young, has been lost to time

Dexter @ Comic-Con



Michael C. Hall & Co. hit the Comic-Con stage on Thursday night for Dexter‘s final, fan-filled hurrah — and they brought along a surprise friend or Trinity three!

A handful of former Dexter faves — including Julie Benz, Lauren Velez and Erik King — surprised the crowd by “crashing” the panel, making the Showtime saga’s swan-song Con showing one to remember.

Following two tear-inducing video packages – a look-back with the cast, and one featuring Dexter’s greatest kills – Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, David Zayas, Aimee Garcia, Yvonne Strahovski and executive producers Sara Colleton, Scott Buck, Manny Coto and Clyde Phillips, as well as the aforementioned returness, reminisced about seasons passed and weighed in (a bit) on what’s to come.

Arrive Derci, Popemobile! Francis I Prefers To Ride With The Top Down, ONTD



Pope Francis is forgoing the bulletproof popemobile for his upcoming trip to Brazil for the Catholic Church's youth festival, further evidence that he has no qualms about tweaking the Vatican's security operations for the sake of getting closer to the faithful.

The Vatican said Wednesday that Francis will use the same open-topped car he uses for zooming around St. Peter's Square to move about Rio de Janeiro, where he arrives July 22 for the week-long World Youth Day fest. He'll use a closed car for longer-distance drives, but the open-topped car for milling about the crowds.

Hey, ONTD! KFC To Go Boneless and Ditching Col. Sanders for Their "Upscale" Restaurant



KFC is tossing out the chicken bones and the quaint image of founder Col. Harland Sanders as it gets ready to test a slightly more upmarket restaurant.

The fried chicken chain says it's opening a location called "KFC Eleven" early next month near its headquarters in Louisville, Ky., that will serve flatbreads with toppings, rice bowls, salads and only boneless pieces of its Original Recipe chicken.

The restaurant's exterior won't feature Sanders, whose bespectacled, white-bearded likeness has long been front and center at traditional KFC locations. But the name of the test restaurant is a reference to the 11 herbs and spices Sanders used in the Original Recipe.

Nick Cannon covers Rolling Out; quotes Rupaul, wears colorful socks, talks career goals & sexy wife



Nick Cannon always seems like he’s having a good time.

On a balmy afternoon near Battery Park in Manhattan, Cannon is laughing and joking with a photographer about his suit while acknowledging that he has less than two hours to get to JFK Airport to make his 7 p.m. flight. “We’ll be a’ight,” he says confidently. That scenario and his reaction are quintessentially Cannon: a sense of urgency without seeming too worried about anything. For a guy who came into the game with big dreams that he managed to fully realize, the ability to stay focused without getting flustered has been a hallmark of his career and life up to this point.

The personality, comedian, rapper, actor and philanthropist emerged in the early 2000s as an ambitious and likable Nickelodeon star and after more than a decade, he’s parlayed that affable persona into a multimedia empire. All the while, Cannon took shots from outsiders who felt that he wasn’t “edgy” enough to appeal to anyone other than preteens.

Justin Timberlake apologizes for ‘Take Back the Night’ controversy


Justin Timberlake has apologized after unknowingly using the name of an anti-rape group as a song title.

Take Back the Night is the name of the new single released last week by the pop star, and also of a sexual assault awareness foundation, who threatened to sue the singer for using their name without permission.
The song’s lyrics include phrases that don’t necessarily support the group’s aims, including “Tonight’s the night, come on, surrender,” and “Use me up until there’s nothing left.”

Timberlake released an apology, saying he had no idea who the group was.

“The Real” is averaging a 1.0 rating/3 share in households, which is up by 11 percent from the lead-in. And up double-digits in women 18-49 (0.8/ 6) and women 18-34 (0.9/ 7).

“Kris,” is flat from the year-ago time period, with a 0.9/ 3 in households, down by 10 percent from the lead-in and 18 percent from the year-ago time period average.

Charlie Hunnam Stored Things in His 'Pacific Rim' Suit Pee Flap



Charlie Hunnam talks about his new film Pacific Rim while making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday (July 17) in Burbank, Calif.

The 33-year-old actor told Jay that his suit had a pee flap that was roomy enough to store things like his pack of gum!

“One of the worst things about that suit was it takes about a half an hour to get on and half an hour to get back off, so if you need to have a pee, you’ve gotta hold production up for a while,” Charlie said. “So, I got through it for the first couple of weeks and said, ‘Come on guys. I mean, I need a pee flap.’”

“So, they gave me one, which was wonderful. There was a little codpiece and you know there’s a button there and you’d flick it up and there’s a zipper underneath,” Charlie added. “It became a secondary function because there’s no pockets in that suit of armor. So I discovered that within the codpiece, now that I had a pee flap, I could store things in there. I’d put my gum [in there].”

Watch what Charlie says when Jay suggest that he could fit things in there because he wasn’t able to fill up the crotch area well!

The Mindy Project Season 2: 'Happy Endings' Adam Pally joins the cast




Looks like another "Happy Endings" alum is moving on to another sitcom just in time for the new TV season. Adam Pally has just been cast for a multi-episode arc on "The Mindy Project", TVLine reports.

Pally, who played Max on the critically-loved yet canceled ABC sitcom, will play a new doctor at the OB/GYN practice where Mindy Kaling's character works.
Not the first "Happy Endings" alum to find a new home on Fox, Pally's casting comes after Damon Wayans Jr. inked a deal to reprise his role as Coach on "New Girl" for its upcoming third season.

Despite our lingering disappointment in the "Happy Endings" cancelation, we're glad that we'll still get to see Pally on our TV's come this fall. How do you think Pally's doctor will get along with Mindy?
"The Mindy Project" Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

Omg at least Adam will be back on TV even tho I still miss him as Max

Glee’s Fan Fiction Community Reacts To Cory Monteith’s Tragic Death




Fan fiction lurks in the hidden corners of the internet, and in many ways, it acts as the internet’s release valve. It’s a place where people can take their favourite pop culture artefacts and mess with them however they damn well please, free from the constraints of editors and censorship. That kiss that never happened, that plotline whose satisfying resolution never came — somewhere on the internet, they’re playing out right now.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that fan fiction is just a way for horny nerds to get their rocks off: What would happen if the magic of time travel put Mad Men’s Trudy Campbell and Community’s Annie Edison together in the same room, in nothing but lacy undergarments? How would Cormac McClaggen’s tender, forbidden kiss feel as he felt you up in the quidditch changing rooms after practice?

In fact, fan fiction fills a lot of other needs besides these obvious one-handed ones. Gay kids from the middle of butt-fuck nowhere can layer their own coming-out narratives over characters from favourite TV shows until they find the courage to do it themselves. Alternately, true crime enthusiasts can create all-new cases that rival the likes of Law & Order: SVU. These are just two of many examples.

Nylon Recasts Clueless for its 18th anniversary





Cher Horowitz may just have been a "virgin who can't drive" when Clueless premiered on July 19th 1995, but the Beverly Hills blonde sure has come a long way since then.

Within the past 18 years, the teenager and her posse—Dionne, Tai, Amber, Elton, and Josh, we're looking at you!—have weaseled their way into our daily vocabulary, our wardrobes, and our VHS collection with their pitch-perfect lines and important life lessons that we still hold true. Now we know that Billie Holiday is a girl, the meaning of "sporadically," and that searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie.

Along with teaching '80s and '90s babies everywhere that headbands were cool, plaid skirts were cooler, and Alaia was coolest, the Amy Heckerling comedy propelled Alicia Silverstone and the rest of the cast to star status... not to mention, ignited our lifelong crush on Paul Rudd.

The very best part about Clueless is the fact that it's so timeless (which explains why even after the thousandth time, we're still obsessed). But considering today marks the movie's 18th birthday, it's only fitting we recast the classic with a crew of actors who we believe can step into these designer shoes. With a play already in existence and rumors swirling about a sequel, who knows? Clueless just might get a revamp someday.

In the meantime, check out our dream team below, and let us know who you'd cast in the comments! --LIZA DARWIN

A Suicidal Young Girl Is Mistaken For Kick-Ass 2 Promo at Comic-Con

Events at Comic-Con took a darker turn after an apparent promotional stunt for the blockbuster sequel Kick-Ass 2 turned out to be an actual suicide bid.



Reports suggested that onlookers saw a woman hanging from the 14th floor of a building above a car park where a party to promote the film was due to be held.

However it soon became apparent that she was not linked to the film – leading those on the ground to plead with her not to jump.

Police attending the scene later confirmed that woman had no connection to the film or the event.

‘The call came in as a jumper,’ an officer from the San Diego police department told the Los Angeles Times.

‘There was something thrown from the balcony and she was crying. After some negotiations, she was taken into custody.’

From YouTube video description: A young girl decided to attempt suicide in San Diego,while I was working on Kick-Ass 2 premier set.Some of the stunt guys pulled off set to save a young girl from certain death.Hats off to the stunt guys for acting quick and swiftly and getting her to safety.

Kanye West allegedly attacked a paparazzi photographer at LAX airport on Friday.

Paramedics are reportedly on the scene to treat the photog, reports TMZ.

The nature of the confrontation and the extent of any injuries have not been confirmed.

According to TMZ, several paparazzi surrounded West while he was leaving the terminal, with the rapper telling the most aggressive of the group to leave him alone.

When the man persisted, West allegedly went after him and threw punches.

Police and medics responded to the area after West departed.

Exactly one week ago, the rapper confronted a photographer at the same airport who refused to stop asking him questions.

Details about Friday’s alleged incident are still emerging and have not been confirmed.

Project Runway S12: Episode 1

In the Season 12 premiere episode, the designers arrive on the runway of an airfield. In this unconventional challenge, skydivers begin to fall from the sky and the designers learn that they must use the colorful parachute materials to create a look that will help define their aesthetic. Actress Kate Bosworth serves as guest judge.

The show also added two new features:
1. Tim Gunn is part of the runway show. He is not allowed to "judge", but can offer up a save (Tim Gunn Rescue) to be used only once during the season to save any designer.
2. Anonymous runway: During the runway show, the judges do not know who designed which look (I guess for unbiased scores); but they are informed immediately after for critique.

Joe Dempsie,Freya Mavor,Jamie Dornan and Alice Englert cast in Channel 4's New worlds

collage DG

Jamie Dornan (The Fall), Freya Mavor (Skins, The White Queen), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and Joe Dempsie (Southcliffe, Game of Thrones) will star as young idealists during the Restoration period in an ensemble cast of new four-part historical drama New Worlds.


Set in the turbulent 1680s, the drama takes place on both sides of the Atlantic, as two young men and two young women commit their lives to a fairer future with blood, passion and urgency. New Worlds is a gripping story of love and loss and the human price paid for the freedoms we enjoy today.


Written and created by Peter Flannery (Our Friends In The North) and Martine Brant and produced by Company Pictures (Skins, Shameless, Elizabeth 1, The White Queen) for Channel 4, New Worlds follows on from their 2008 BAFTA-nominated series The Devil’s Whore.

Chris Matthews Apologizes For White Racism, Gets Attacked On Twitter


MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews decided to speak for “all White people” and apologize for racism in the United States and was attacked by White people on Twitter for his efforts.

Matthews was speaking with guests Michael Steele, former Republican National Committee chairman and MSNBC political analyst, and Val Nicholas, vice president and creative director at NBC News.
After listening to the two men exchange war stories on being Black men in America, and drawing comparisons between their experiences and the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a clearly upset Matthews offered a heartfelt apology:
“I’ll just tell you one thing,” the Hardball host told his two guests. “And I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially [the ones] who’ve tried to change the last 50 or 60 years. And a lot of them really tried to change, and I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.”

Comic-Con got to be the first audience to watch the eagerly awaited show’s first episode, a pilot that even industry reporters and many Hollywood insiders had not yet viewed.

Andrew Garfield Upset over Shailene Woodley's 'Spider-Man' Departure

She was cast in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and expected to appear in the third installment. She shot a few scenes. Then, she was cut. Shailene Woodley, the star of the upcoming young-adult, book-based "Divergent," has expressed her disappointment over losing the role of Mary Jane Watson in Spidey's next flick.

And Yahoo! Movies has learned Spidey was sad about it, too. "That's a bummer," Andrew Garfield told us at this year's San Diego Comic-Con when we brought up Woodley's departure. "The reason why I would've liked it to have been in… is Shailene, because she's so talented and because she did just beautiful work," he said of the 21-year-old actress. "I only did a couple of scenes with her, but gosh, it was just beautiful to hang with her and work with her. She is not only an incredibly talented, gifted actress with great craft but also she's one of the better people you'll meet." As if we needed more proof that Garfield is an ultra nice guy.

The 29-year-old Spidey star then offered the same reason director Marc Webb gave for Woodley's untimely departure from the film's cast (which includes Garfield's real-life main squeeze Emma Stone): story. "In the sense of storytelling, it didn't quite make sense to introduce another girl," Garfield told Yahoo! Movies. "The idea neutralizes the budding and growing relationship between Gwen [Stacy] and Peter [Parker]," he went on to explain.

But Garfield makes no bones about it. He wasn't happy to say goodbye to Woodley. "I'll go on record and say it's a bummer that those scenes won't be seen because she just killed it and she was perfect."

Bryan Singer talks more about X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

At 20th Century Fox’s Comic-Con panel on Saturday, fans are expected to be treated to a blowout preview for a movie its director describes as “not a sequel or a prequel, but an inbetweenquel.”

“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which comes out in May of 2014, is a decades-spanning movie involving time travel and alternate timelines that’s based a seminal 1981 storyline from the comics about mutant superheroes who are societal outcasts.

For those who aren’t longtime readers of Marvel Comics’ X-Men, however, “Days of Future Past” stands out because it marks the return of director Bryan Singer, who made Fox’s first two “X-Men” films, largely seen as the best in the series. It also brings together virtually every actor who has appeared in an “X-Men” film, including Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellan, Jennifer Lawrence, Halle Berry, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender.

It’s an original story, but it’s based on ‘Days of Future Past,’” explained Mr. Singer. “It takes into account all of the films so far and doesn’t go crazy trying to tie them together, but establishes a timeline and flushes out the universe.

Rihanna asks Topshop for free clothes AFTER she filed lawsuit against company



Rihanna's stylists continued to ask Topshop for clothes for the star despite the fact she is suing the retailer, a court heard today.

The singer claims the printed sleeveless white top - which hit the rails in Topshop last year - may have tarnished her reputation by leading her fans to believe the garment was 'genuine' Rihanna-approved merchandise.

But the retailer's lawyers today said that - while the singer is claiming the top blighted her image - it has not stopped her entourage contacting Topshop to ask for clothes for Rihanna half a dozen times since the lawsuit was launched.

Paula Deen headed to DIVORCE!!!!!

BBC-0141652


PAULA Deen is headed for an ugly $17 million divorce battle with her husband Michael Groover.

According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, the couple have no pre­nuptial agreement — and pals are saying all bets are off at this point.

“If they do divorce, Paula could have a real fight on her hands,” said a source close to the family.

Michael is said to be furious over being dragged into the mess that exploded when news broke that Paula admitted in a court deposition she’d used the N-word.

“Now that Paula has soiled his name, too, everyone fears it could be the final breaking point for their marriage,” revealed the source.

“Michael is a quiet Southerner, a fifth-generation native of Savan­nah. He’s a proud man and has had trouble being in the limelight. This scandal has been a nightmare for him. People blast Paula to his face for her racial slurs, and they’re let­ting him have it, too. It’s a case of guilt by association.

Kanye West's 'Yeezus': Heaven-sent or weak event?


To no one's surprise, Kanye West's sixth solo effort debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts last month. But "Yeezus" only sold 327,000 units that week - West's lowest first-week sales since he released his 2004 debut, "The College Dropout." This week, the fourth week the album has been out, "Yeezus" sold 29,000 units, bringing its total to 459,356, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Could West's album be headed south? Joe Levy, editor of Billboard, says the rapper hasn't promoted his album the way most A-list artists do, so "Yeezus" is performing nicely.

"With almost absolutely no promotion and certainly nothing traditionally defined as album release promotion, no single, no video, no magazine covers. ... This is a fan reaction based purely on interest and anticipation," he said. "I think given the way he's approached this release, he's doing quite well."

West wouldn't be interviewed for this story and his label, Def Jam, didn't immediately respond to an email requesting an interview or a statement.

"Yeezus" is an artsy, dark adventure that isn't easy to digest. The 10 tracks are made up of moody, electronic and erratic beats, with the lyrics focusing on race, religion and other topics. West's weird-boy, punk rock sound isn't a surprise: He began on a darker route in 2008 with "808s & Heartbreak" and went deeper two years later with "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." But the new album has put the multiplatinum, Grammy-winning rapper on a new wavelength outside the mainstream margin.

The album, though critically acclaimed, doesn't have any big singles, anthemic hooks or charismatic lyrics like West's past efforts. In fact, West officially released a single, "Black Skinhead," two weeks after the album dropped. The music video came days later.

More Britney/Justin fanfic for the 'shippers.



Britney Spears gave troubled teenage pop star Justin Bieber a pep talk to get him on the straight and narrow.

Justin has been capturing negative headlines for several months and has most recently been accused of spitting in a DJ’s face at a nightclub.

Britney shot to international stardom when she released her album …Baby One More Time! in 1999 at the age of 18. It's 17, bitch

She also had her fair share of negative press in the past, as the songstress was under public scrutiny when she visited rehab, divorced and experienced a mental breakdown in 2007.

Apparently Justin’s milieu have been really worried about him recently and asked Britney to impart her knowledge to the troubled teen.

“Justin’s team asked her to talk some sense into him,” a source told British newspaper The Sun.

Britney remains under the conservatorship of her father, Jamie Spears, who is currently in control of the star's assets under its terms.

It is said she made it clear to Justin during their conversation that it is easy to lose perspective with a hard partying lifestyle.

“Britney warned him of the slippery slope that can easily lead to rehab – or even death – among young pop stars,” the insider detailed.

Britney’s conservatorship order was enacted after she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold and stripped of visitation rights for her two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

She has since regained access to her children and has reportedly signed a multi-million dollar deal to perform a series of concerts in Las Vegas.

Dropping the Ball: Why it’s time to bury ‘True Blood’ six feet under

sixtrue.jpg


“I liked their early stuff better.” It’s easy to feel suspicious of this sentiment, so often leveled at musicians, filmmakers, novelists and doughnut shop owners alike, considering the increasing speed with which the digitally empowered masses seem to move from unexpected delight towards vague dissatisfaction these days.

Yet, in the case of Alan Ball, it’s hard not to agree: How did the creator of Six Feet Under, one of the most original, thoughtful, understated dramas on television, go on to create True Blood, one of the flashiest, emptiest, most repetitive dramas ever to haunt the small screen?

Alfonso Cuaron Calls 'GRAVITY' "An Amazing Miscalculation" + Wants To Do Horror Film Next



"Gravity," the new film from "Children of Men" auteur Alfonso Cuaron about a pair of astronauts (played by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney) adrift in outer space following a calamitous event, doesn't seem like your typical Comic-Con movie (ie. not based on a comic or featuring dudes in spandex). But the film, which is set to open the Venice Film Festival in August with a domestic bow in October, needs all the hype it can get. The film has been in active production since 2010 and has missed its release date at least once already. “It’s been an amazing miscalculation,” Cuaron told the Hall H crowd.

Amanda Bynes gets thrown out of hotel while making front desk girl cry



Amanda Bynes was unceremoniously ejected from a Ritz-Carlton in NYC Thursday after allegedly smoking weed in her hotel room and being so rude to hotel staff she made one poor girl cry, sources tell TMZ.

Amanda begs to differ, telling us she left the hotel voluntarily and does NOT smoke weed.

Our sources say Amanda was a nightmare from the get-go, smoking weed everyday despite warnings from hotel staff. We're told Amanda tried using spray chemicals to mask the weed smell.

But that's not it, we're told Amanda was unspeakably rude to the hotel staff, telling the front desk girl she was "too ugly" to check her in. We're told Amanda then offered her plastic surgeon's services to the desk girl in question ... and the tears started flowing.

The bad behavior continued until Thursday. Amanda was scheduled to check out at noon, but the hotel staff had had enough and kicked her out several hours before mandatory check out.

In case you're wondering where Amanda's going next -- we're told she was last seen getting into a cab headed to LaGuardia Airport bound for L.A.

damn she just gave a stranger her plastic surgeon's number though..
