Fast forward to 3:15 and you will see Shaq receive a piggyback ride from “Hoops,” his Lilliputian girlfriend. That is seriously impressive. And she is wearing heels. The only good thing you missed before the piggy is Shaq referencing how large his “anaconda” is. I mean, we figured as much. Oh, and just in case you failed to notice, the name of his forthcoming book is Shaq: Uncut. Fun with double entendres! Imagine all that action packed into one “Jimmy Kimmel Live” segment. [Buzzfeed]
Last night, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a screener of “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” the film that was the talk of Cannes, based on the book by Lionel Shriver. The book/movie is told from the perspective of a mother — played by Tilda Swinton — as she struggles to rebuild her life shortly after her teenage son, Kevin, kills a bunch of his fellows students and teachers in an orchestrated massacre. Kevin has always been a bad seed, exhibiting sociopathic behavior since he was in diapers and the film (and, I imagine, the book) puts a certain damper on any baby fever you might have. It’s the ultimate psychological horror story — are some people just born evil?
Ezra Miller spent over two years trying to land the role before finally getting the green light — and damn, did he blow me away. The thing about many sociopaths is their ability to switch seamlessly between being charming and cruel, and Miller pulls this off brilliantly. He exudes an emotional intelligence beyond his age, a quality that is essential for such a complex and disturbing character. I — and, oh, everyone else — am convinced he is the next big thing.
