Whoa—the casting news just won’t stop this week. The Hollywood Reporter has brought us some new details about the movie “I Hate You Dad” which will star Adam Sandler as a father who moves in with his son, Andy Samberg, and quickly begins to feud with his fiancee, Leighton Meester. Oh, but the casting choices only get more exciting from there. Our favorite mother/daughter duo—Eva Amurri and Susan Sarandon—will also be in this flick, with Susan playing a sexy older teacher who seduced Adam Sandler’s character when he was younger. She may or may not be Andy Samberg’s mama.
But—wait, it gets even better. Keep reading »
After a long day of swimming and preying on sea life, sharks need to take a load off just like us humans. Instead of watching massive amounts of reality TV (not that I’ve ever done that), researchers have found that sharks enjoy some tunes to help them relax. According to a team studying the effects of music on a group of great white sharks in Australia, AC/DC—more specifically the song “You Shook Me All Night Long”—has been shown to calm the animals. When hearing that particular hard-rock anthem, the sharks became inquisitive and much less aggressive. Some of them even rubbed their faces along the speaker in a gesture of affection. I wonder if something like Enya would have the opposite effect and make them bloodthirsty? Not that I have any desire to find out. Keep reading »
With big stars like Zooey Deschanel signing on for television shows, it seems like the small screen is the place to be. Today, I read about two other unexpected faces who will be appearing on the boob tube soon. First, Oscar winner Halle Berry is attached to a new TV series called “Higher Learning” that is being pitched to both Showtime and HBO and is expected to be picked up by one of them. Not too much is known about the show beyond Halle’s involvement and the fact that she would play a college professor in it. Also fascinating—Gavin Rossdale, aka the frontman of Bush and husband of Gwen Stefani, has signed on for a role on USA’s “Burn Notice.” Keep reading »
“It was fun, but I can’t say I’m going to be butt-naked in a movie again. I only did it because I’m young now, and everything’s where it’s supposed to be. I figured this is the time, before gravity gets the best of me.”

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton had one of the most tumultuous celebrity romances of all time. I mean, not so many couples get divorced twice—you know? Elizabeth and Richard first met in 1962 while she played everyone’s favorite lady pharaoh and he took on the role of Marc Antony in “Cleopatra.” They were both married to other people at the time, but their intense chemistry was too much to resist and they began an affair. Two years later, they married. But things weren’t happily ever, as seems pretty obvious when you see them in “Who’s Afraid of Virgina Woolf?”—it’s like their intense love/hate of each other seemed to ooze off-screen. In 1974, they divorced, only to remarry 16 months later. A year after that, they were dunzo for real.
Elizabeth and Richard’s story was captured in the book Furious Love. And now it has been optioned by Paramount Pictures. Even better, Martin Scorcese is set to direct the pic. Keep reading »
What is your female response? According to this film, there are seven basic ways that women respond. To what? I don’t know. To their femaleness, I suppose? I’m glad my way of coping was to become “the free thinker” and not “the secretary.” [Girls of the World] Keep reading »
