James Franco stars as in this prequel to “The Wizard Of Oz,” playing a magician who gets transported to a strange world via tornado (you know how it goes). There, he meets three witches — Michelle Williams (as Glinda), Rachel Weisz (I presume the evil one) and Mila Kunis (the witch who henceforth shall be known as “The One Who Looks Like Carmen Sandiego) — and decides he’s the only one who can save this magical land from total destruction. James Franco playing a guy with a God complex? You don’t say! Check out the trailer above.

Yo, this Sunday, Mr. Walter White and his meth-addicted protege Jesse Pinkman are back for the season premiere of “Breaking Bad.” I am so excited that I’m hosting a small get together at my apartment, complete with blue raspberry rock candy (what the show uses for their meth) and a bell in memory of Hector Salamanca, may he rest in peace. If I could, I would cater the entire thing from Los Pollos Hermanos.
Now, everyone knows there’s nothing hot about drug addiction in real life, but TV and movies have done a good job finding hot dudes to play drug addicts. In honor of “Breaking Bad”‘s return, I present to you 10 hot drug addicts on TV and in film, starting with the show’s own Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul). I would so be his bitch.
Apparently, reading 50 Shades of Grey warrants being squirted in the face with 50 Shades of Brown.
Raymond Hodgson, 31, was recently charged with common assault after finding his partner, Emma McCormick, reading the BDSM erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, before slapping her in the face and squirting a mysterious brown sauce on her because he found the books “pornographic” and “distasteful.” Keep reading »
When we first heard Rihanna was going to have her own reality TV show, we were praying it would be kind of like the Britney Spears/K-Fed disaster “Chaotic.” But it turns out, she’s made a fashion show, titled “Styled to Rock,” and it’s more “Project Runway” than personal foray into Rihanna’s world. She’s also primarily the executive producer, and while she’ll appear on some of the episodes, the show’s judging duties will be mostly held by Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud, Rihanna’s stylist Lysa Cooper and designer Henry Holland. It’s also airing on British channel Sky Living, so it’ll probably be difficult to catch many of the episodes, unless they’re leaked online. You can see the trailer for the show — and Rihanna (pegged here as a style icon) in an unfortunate baseball cap/blonde hair combo. [Styleite]
Between watching “Chopped,” “Top Chef,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Master Chef” and “Kitchen Nightmares,” I didn’t think there was time for another cooking show on my lineup. But when your dream reality show concept comes along, you make time. NBC is creating a new show “that brings together everyone’s two favorite things: food and love.” Indeed! The network put out a Craigslist casting call, which describes the premise of the show:
Each episode pits real-life single men in competition with each other in the kitchen as they try to win the affection of our lovely bachelorette. The single guys will field questions while simultaneously cooking the bachelorette’s favorite dish.
Wait, it gets better … Keep reading »
