I didn’t think anything could be better than the “F**k yeah, Ryan Gosling”/”Hey Girl” meme about my boo, but then “F**k Yeah, Feminist Ryan Gosling” came along and appealed to my Betty Friedan-loving, bell hooks-reading side. Check a couple more after the jump and the full site here. Keep reading »
Jon Hamm has nabbed himself four Emmys playing the now-iconic role of Don Draper on “Mad Men.” But apparently, he was not producers first choice for the role. And he actually knows who the makers of the show originally had in mind for the starring role—Thomas Jane of “Hung.” “Nobody knew who I was. The casting directors didn’t know who I was. I wasn’t on anybody’s lists,” Jon explained on comedian Marc Maron’s podcast this week. “The funny thing was, I think they went to Thomas Jane for it, and they were told that Thomas Jane does not do television.” Hee hee.

In Hollywood, this happens all the time—big actors often turn down parts that then make a newcomer a bonafide star. Did you know that Michelle Pfeiffer was the original choice for “Pretty Woman?” Or that Kellan Lutz was turned down audition for Edward Cullen in “Twilight”? Many more examples after the jump.
If you’re anything like me, you track rising movie starlets through a patented system of chicken bone voodoo and Precog upkeep. It’s a good system but sometimes people fall through the cracks.

Dakota Fanning started NYU this fall — but she’s not living like your regular freshman. Instead of living in the dorms on campus, the “Twilight” star is renting out a two-bedroom, two-bathoom, $8,400/month apartment. Not too shabby, right?
The place boasts a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, soaking tub and a ton of windows. The building also has a 24-hour doorman and sundeck with panoramic views of the city. No word on if she’s got a roomie, but the building reportedly has at least one other famous tenant: John Mayer.
Check out the bedroom above and the rest of the apartment here. Who else is jealous? Read more…
Squeaky-clean teen idol Joe Jonas is the last person we’d expect to have a dead on Situation impersonation. But when he visited Wendy Williams‘ show and they reenacted a drunk conversation between Sitch and Snooki — in costume! — I got the same creepy crawlies as I do with Mr. Michael Sorrentino himself. Definitely watch this one. [Popdust]
