Margot Robbie to join Tina Fey for "Taliban Shuffle"?


Margot Robbie may step into comedy next if she decides to join Paramount Picture's Taliban Shuffle, produced by Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels. Tina Fey is set to star. The feature film will be adapted from Robert Carlock's script of the same name.

Plot description: When Barker arrives in Kabul, foreign aid is at a record low, electricity is a pipe dream, and of the few remaining foreign troops, some aren’t allowed out after dark. Meanwhile, in the vacuum left by the U.S. and NATO, the Taliban is regrouping as the Afghan and Pakistani governments floun­der. Barker watches Afghan police recruits make a travesty of practice drills and observes the disorienting turnover of diplomatic staff. She is pursued romantically by the former prime minister of Pakistan and sees adrenaline-fueled col­leagues disappear into the clutches of the Taliban. And as her love for these hapless countries grows, her hopes for their stability and security fade.

Margot Robbie will next be seen in Focus alongside Will Smith and Tarzan as Jane Porter. She is currently in talks for The Suicide Squad for an unknown role.

Ed Sheeran hits back after being labelled too boring to headline festivals

Last week Ed Sheeran held an audience rapt across four nights at the O2 Arena armed with just his guitar and a loop pedal.

But this digital one-man show appears not to have impressed the organiser of the Isle of Wight Festival who claimed that Sheeran was too “boring” to headline his Summer event.

Speaking at the Live UK Summit 2014, John Giddings, an industry veteran who has promoted tours by U2, Madonna and The Rolling Stones, warned of a dearth of future festival headline acts once the “legacy” artists have left the stage.

Red Band Society.... SAFE for now, Fox orders more scripts

Fox has ordered four more script for Red Band Society. There's no guarantee that these scripts will be filmed or that there will be a full-season order, but this is a good sign for Red Band Society fans.

Mulaney's episode order was cut to 13 episodes from 16. With Mulaney getting shit ratings and Red Band Society only drawing in 1.3 in the 18-49 demo, yup, Fox is failing.

Actress Felicia Day opens up about #gamergate fears; personal details leaked moments later

In a Tumblr entry posted last night, Day wrote:

I have not said many public things about Gamer Gate. I have tried to leave it alone, aside from a few @ replies on Twitter that journalists have decided to use in their articles, siding me against the hashtag. Why have I remained mostly silent?

Self-protection and fear.
I have been terrified of inviting a deluge of abusive and condescending tweets into my timeline. I did one simple @ reply to one of the main victims several weeks back, and got a flood of things I simply couldn’t stand to read directed at me. I had to log offline for a few days until it went away. I have tried to retweet a few of the articles I’ve seen dissecting the issue in support, but personally I am terrified to be doxxed for even typing the words “Gamer Gate”. I have had stalkers and restraining orders issued in the past, I have had people show up on my doorstep when my personal information was HARD to get. To have my location revealed to the world would give a entry point for a few mentally ill people who have fixated on me, and allow them to show up and make good on the kind of threats I’ve received that make me paranoid to walk around a convention alone. I haven’t been able to stomach the risk of being afraid to get out of my car in my own driveway because I’ve expressed an opinion that someone on the internet didn’t agree with.

Then, shortly after the post was made, a commenter named gaimerga8 posted her home address and personal email address in the comments section under the post.

ONTD Original: Famous Mexican Showbiz Feuds

Chica Dorada vs. Mexican Rock Princess


The origin of the differences between Paulina Rubio and Alejandra Guzmán first occurred because both got with Erik Rubín for a while. The daughter of Mexican Legend and your abuelita’s favorite actress Silvia Pinal dedicated the song 'Hey Güera' while Pau did the same with “Mío”. "Me lo bajó, me lo bajó gacho!” (She took him from me, very ugly), then yes, I sang 'Hey güera' and then she sang to me 'That man is mine', said 'Guzmán' in 2009. This happened in the early nineties and they still hate each other.

Twiggy: "Obesity is a Tragedy"

The former supermodel is disgusted by obesity, especially when it comes to the people of her native homeland Great Britain.  Twiggy implores them to change their diets.  She is quoted as saying: “I feel strongly that you are what you eat and I do think the obesity problem is a tragedy,” she tells Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper.

“They say that what happens in America comes here ten years later and it has. I think it’s a lot to do with fast food and how easy it is to buy it. I know people have financial problems sometimes but if one can buy good food and cook it they’ll find it doesn’t always cost more. But it’s whether people have got the inclination or the time. It’s so much easier to buy rubbish. I find that really upsetting actually."

She also doesn't approve of children drinking soda and claims that her philosophy is 'everything in moderation'.

“I don’t believe in dieting, though. It’s so boring.”

Taylor Kitsch can't talk about 'True Detective', yet, but can confirm he won't be rocking a man bun


Taylor Kitsch showed up at the GQ Gentleman's Ball last night as he was honored for his charity work with the African Children's Choir. He stopped to talk with Cosmopolitan Magazine about the potential of seeing him rocking a man bun on True Detective.

He couldn't talk about his role on the show, yet, staying tight-lipped on the subject but would talk a little about his infamous Tim Riggins locks and its man bun potential, "It is long - but I can't say anything about [the show]." He eventually admitted that, "Ok, I will not have a man bun. Put it that way. No matter! On or off screen, I'm not going to rock that."

Archie drama "Riverdale" coming to FOX

Archie fans, are you excited?

Arrow and Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti will heading this series for Fox. The series will focus on the eternal love triangle of Archie, Betty, and Veronica (no surprise there) and will feature the rest of the entire cast. "The entire team working on ‘Riverdale' is as passionate about Archie as Jon and I are, so it feels like the stars have finally aligned for Archie and the rest of the gang."

WB is also producing.

Death Cab for Cutie talks departure of Chris Walla and new album for 2014

After 17 years, long-time producter and band member Chris Walla played his last show with the band when they performed at Rifflandia in September. The lengthy Q&A talks about the following:

  • The process of finding a new producer for their 8th studio album and details on the amicable split of Chris Walla from the group

  • A lot of cool indepth discussion on what it means to be a prominent indie band 17 years later and the impact of their back catalogue on how they try to make music now

  • Talks about the types of fans they have and how they've reacted to their new albums over the years; describes it as having 3 types of fans: fans that love We Have the Facts, fans that love Transatlanticism, and fans that love Plans, and of course the fans that hated Codes and Keys

  • How fans that initially hated an album will come back around and love them later on

  • What it means to have fans that have grown up with them and the burden of having people extremely emotionally attached to their previous works and albums

  • A really cool conversation on the nature of music journalism and being a music listener: what it means to like music for what it actually is, versus what you want it to be like when you have preconceived notions about the artist and their previous history

  • How the music on this upcoming album is going to connect back to their earliest works

I highly recommend reading the entire Q&A at the source at Stereogum: http://www.stereogum.com/1713885/qa-death-cab-for-cutie-preview-their-final-album-with-chris-walla/franchises/interview/

Wayne Coyne Sheds Some Light On Kesha’s Relationship With Dr. Luke, Why ‘Lip$ha’ Was Shelved


Wayne Coyne, the frontman of The Flaming Lips, became good friends with Kesha back in 2012. He's now revealing a bit more about that Lip$ha project that never came to be and Kesha's relationship with Dr. Luke.

“The stuff that we did together was just spectacular, and it made us want to do more,” Coyne reveals in an interview with Radio.com. “And I think we did like four or five songs, and then Kesha would remind me, ‘Wayne, I can’t put this music out, Dr. Luke will kill me.’

“I don’t know Dr. Luke at all, but when we [Kesha and I] speak, I know there’s some anxiety about their relationship,” he continues. “I think she would like to have the freedom to do more things in that spirit. Where it’s not — again, I don’t know their situation — but where it’s not producers producing her. She could produce herself, that’s probably what she is wanting to happen with her own career.”

“I love Kesha, she’s great. Miley is a lot more of her own entity, I think the success of Hannah Montana has allowed her to be the king of her own destiny,” he exppains. “And I think Kesha will get to that eventually. She doesn’t have that sort of power now, but I think she will eventually.”

Is Planet Hollywood Lying About Britney's Sales?

Planet Hollywood is even reporting an extra $20 million dollars in earnings from the show. Is the hotel inflating Britney's sales for good press?

“I don’t talk about race since it takes a very open mind to hear my view, because my view is the sky view. But I’m very troubled by what happened in Ferguson, Mo,” Williams told Ebony regarding the tragedy in Ferguson, MO. “When things like that happen, we need to be a united cell. We need connective tissue to be linked by spirit and spirituality.
For every individual who gets killed, someone should build a school or teach a child,” he continued. We really need to balance things with positivity.

'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Trailer Leak Aftermath Post

The “Avengers 2” trailer was supposed to save “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Oops.

It seemed like a foolproof plan: The Avengers were going to come to the rescue, just when Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. needed them most.

This past Tuesday night, as the ABC superhero drama—the first TV spinoff from the Marvel Universe—hit its lowest US ratings ever (with just 4.36 million tuning in), Marvel announced that the highly-anticipated trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron would premiere during next week’s episode. The fan frenzy started immediately, and Marvel and ABC reasonably assumed that the chance to see the first footage of what is expected to be next summer’s biggest blockbuster would bring back some of the nearly 8 million viewers who have abandoned Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since it first premiered last fall.

Instead, Marvel was thwarted, not by Hydra (the usual troublemaker in the Marvel universe), but by whomever leaked the trailer online.

10 (4) most expensive television flops in history

A list brought to you by io9....

Something of interest to note is that a lot of these shows "were made during the post-Lost boom in huge high-concept pilots." I guess when Lost first aired, it had the distinction of being the most expensive television pilot, which then resulted in a lot of Follow the Leader.

Anyway, on to the list...

Terra Nova aka the one with dinosaurs and time travel

Terra Nova aired on Fox back in 2011 and got a lot of attention at the time for how much it cost to produce. io9 reports that the pilot was "estimated to have cost somewhere between $16 and $20 million" and that each episode thereafter cost "around $4 million." That's not including the shit ton of money that went into promoting/marketing the show.

Too bad Terra Nova ended up being complete and utter crap that was canceled after one season. Superstitious folk like to blame show-killer Jason O'Mara but anyone who actually watched this drivel knows that it was the writing.

this is like eating cheesecake-flavored ice cream and complaining that it tastes like cheesecake

Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth in "Before I Go to Sleep"


This film, Before I Go to Sleep, is a thriller version of 50 First Dates: Christine (Kidman) has amnesia and can't remember her husband (Firth), who has to remind her of who he is every single day. Meanwhile, she visits her doctor who is prodding her memory. The mystery is finding out which man is manipulating her and lying to her about crucial facts.

There are very few psychological thrillers, particularly for women, that play just on your face and the psychology of the character, with very little dialogue" - Kidman

Peter Jackson discusses the Battle of the Five Armies

Mods, Entertainment Weekly is not listed as a banned source on the info page.

According to the Twitter account of Entertainment Weekly, Peter Jackson kindly granted an interview to some plebeian journalist about the major battle scene in the third Hobbit movie. The main points are:

  • According to Peter Jackson, you should use as many CGI Orcs as possible to fill up that battleground/look impressive. (tbh I'm pretty sure he forgot he was talking about the Battle of the Five Armies and started discussing Helm's Deep instead)

  • Peter Jackson acknowledges that the eagles are a bit of a deus ex machina, and says that The Lord of the Rings probably would have ended much quicker if they'd helped out a bit with Sauron.

  • Apparently they have a rule where a main character has to be shown in at least every third shot of a battle sequence, so it won't be "boring." (??? but the battles are the fun part...)

There are some cool drawings and a diagram of the armies in the battle at the source:

Bette Midler covers TLC's 'Waterfalls'

Listen to Bette Midler sing this TLC's hit. Her new album “It's the Girls!” feautures songs originally sang by different girl groups.

From her website:
As most of you know, I have an absolute mania for harmony and vocal groups – I'm mad for the melodies, I’m cuckoo for the chords! I have been a rabid fan of these groups since I was a mere sprout, (which was so long ago I’m practically a beanstalk now!) and although I have jumped feet first into this kind of music many times, I decided to devote an entire record to some of the girl group music that I have loved since I was a kid. Yes, Virginia, I MADE A NEW ALBUM!! It’s my 25th album, which I really can’t believe. How did I manage that? Have I been recording albums I didn’t know about in my sleep? [...] They say behind every great man, there’s a great woman. Well I think that behind every great woman, there should be at least two other women singing and dancing in perfect unison. I hope “It’s The Girls” gives you the impulse to dig deeper into the music and the lives of the women who made it. You won’t regret a moment…

Kiernan Shipka and Meg Ryan to Star in "Fan Girl" featuring All Time Low

Kiernan Shipka of Mad Men and Meg Ryan of nothing of note recently tbh are set to start in "Fan Girl," directed by Paul Jarrett and written by Gina O'Brien. The film centers around Shipka, a 15-year old girl whose main interests are making movies and idolizing her favorite band (to be played by flawless kings Baltimore pop-punk band All Time Low, who will also be lending their music to the movie). With a deadline for a final project fast approaching, Shipka's character decides to find a way to bring her two loves together.

Alex Gaskarth, lead singer of All Time Low, officially announced their involvement on Twitter today, though a small group of the band's fan club did get to participate in filming a concert scene for the movie a few months ago (the song used was "Vegas" off "So Wrong, It's Right").
