HBO is seriously on a roll. Just as “Girls” and “Veep” weaseled their way into my DVR lineup, the network has announced that it is fast-tracking development for a new show that has me absolutely giddy. The as-of-yet-unnamed series will star the amazing Catherine Keener (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Cyrus”), who will also produce, and will be written and directed by mind-bending auteur Charlie Kaufman (“Adaptation,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”).
Keener and Kaufman first teamed up for “Being John Malkovich” in 1999, and have worked together many times over the years. Now, they are tag-teaming on this project, with Kaufman serving as executive producer. The show sounds appropriately quirky. As Deadline reports, it is “an exploration of one day in a woman’s life and how the events leading up to it can affect, or not, the reality in which she lives.”
I firmly believe that Keener is one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood. Honestly, I just can’t get enough of her. After the jump, nine reasons this actress is truly the bee’s knees. Keep reading »
According to In Touch Magazine, Casper Smart, not only got his penis inked, but got his “girlfriend’s name tattooed on [his] nether region.” According to a friend, “Casper surprised J.Lo with this token of his affection – and she was thrilled with the latest addition to his already inked-up body … Jennifer thinks Casper’s tattoos are sexy, but this one is her favorite, for obvious reasons … She loves it, and she loves him.”
Oh no. Fatal mistake. If this tidbit is true, Casper has just ensured himself a breakup. Getting a GF/BF’s named prematurely inked on your body (especially on the dick) is a very bad omen. That’s gonna suck getting that lasered off once Jennifer tells him that their relationship was just for fun. [WOW]
Begun after artist Jeff Gaudinet and a friend had a miscommunication about skating and Kate Moss, the Skate Moss project allows users and fans to “make” their own fantasy skateboards emblazoned with Kate Moss’s image and name. So far, the boards aren’t in production, but if there’s two things that go together, it’s overly hormonal skateboarders and naked girls, so kudos, Mr. Gaudinet. [Skate Moss]
Jennifer Lopez wears some absolutely fantastic things, but the singer and American Idol judge is not what I would call the arbiter of good taste: she likes her clothes short, spangly, and as skintight as she can manage without bursting a blood vessel. I mean, can you blame her? This week, J.Lo brought boytoy Casper Smart (who, ugh, I just noticed has a neck tattoo) along for the ride to celebrate the launch of her new single in Vegas, and I don’t think the term “minidress” does the teeny-tiny garment she chose for the occasion justice. Of course it looks fabulous on her — duh, it’s J.Lo — and it is Vegas, but I can’t look at her in this dress without wincing. How often do you think she had to pull that shit down lest she flaunt the fallopians? Jenny from the block needs a sit-down talk about not show-cha(ing) her chocha.
“I’ve always felt a little misrepresented in the world. I felt like people only knew me as a singer who dated pretty girls. A little bit of a bimbo. Maybe I was kind of a bimbo … I was the dude that was naked all the time with girls, and that’s fine, no problem with that. … There are two kinds of men. There are men who are fucking misogynist pigs, and then there are men who really love women, who think they’re the most amazing people in the world. And that’s me. Maybe the reason I was promiscuous, and wanted to sleep with a lot of them, is that I love them so much.”
– I’m glad to hear that Adam Levine from Maroon 5 is not a “fucking misogynist pig.” I’m also glad to hear that loving the opposite sex is a socially legit reason for promiscuity. Next time some commenters give The Frisky bloggers grief for slutting it up, I’m just going to tell them, “You don’t understand. We want to sleep with a lot of men because we love them so much!”
(P.S. A little birdie in our office who knows Adam says he’s not a bimbo at all, but “savvy, talented and hardworking.” So there you go.) [Details]
