6 Awesome Roles Intended For Men, But Cast As Women

Angelina Jolie looks so femme fatale-tastic staring out from the poster for “Salt,” with her black wig and heavily lined eyes, that it’s hard to imagine that the title role in the movie was actually written for a guy. But, yes, it’s true—Evelyn Salt was originally scripted as Edwin Salt. And lame name aside, the role was intended for Tom Cruise. It was only when Cruise backed out that the movie’s makers rethought the part and decided to cast Angelina instead. A seriously good move. [NPR]

Interestingly, this is not the first time a woman has played a role originally envisioned as a man. After the jump, some of our favorite examples. Keep reading »

“Love, Carla”: What “Mad Men”‘s Black Maid Would Say If She Had A Bigger Speaking Role

Betty Draper’s Parenting Skillz


When it comes to Betty Draper‘s parenting on “Mad Men,” people either roll their eyes at her for constantly barking orders at her kids and never seeming to care that much about who they are, what they say, or things they’re interested in or they applaud her for her authoritarianism and want to nominate her for Mother of the Year. So which camp do you fall in? Take a look at this montage of mama Betty to decide. And, just for the record, I’m in Camp A. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Christina Aguilera Premieres Depressing New Video, “You Lost Me”

Christina Aguilera‘s latest album, Bionic, may not be selling, but that’s not stopping the songstress’s record label from churning out another music video. “You Lost Me” follows on the heels of “Not Myself Tonight,” the latter being a raunch-fest featuring Aguilera with a ball gag in her mouth. For the new video, she’s got pink-ish hair, baggy clothes, and the vibe is more “Beautiful” than “Dirrty.” It’s a breakup song, mostly, seemingly about a man who cheated. I’m not sure what this slow jam will do for her album sales, but at least she’s not prancing around in her underpants. Right? Keep reading »

James Franco Sexes Up Scraggly Poet Allen Ginsberg In “Howl”

I cannot, cannot wait to see James Franco in “Howl.” He actually makes Beat poet Allen Ginsberg kinda hot, instead of hairy and creepy. It gives the famous lines from Ginsberg’s iconic poem, also named “Howl,” a whole new meaning: I saw the best minds of my generation, starving, hysterical, naked …

Oh, did I mention JON HAMM IS IN THIS MOVIE, TOO?! Yes, he is, looking all hot as a lawyer battling obscenity charges. You win, casting department! Unforch, we have to wait until “Howl” debuts September 24. Keep reading »

Danielle Staub Accuses Former Partner-In-Crime Of Stalking Her

Surprise! Another loser from “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Danielle Staub’s past has turned on her. Ex-con Danny Aguilar, a friend and, uh, partner-in-crime of Danielle’s from the ’80s, demanded that Danielle pay him $100,000 this past weekend. Why? Because he thinks she owes him. Big time.

“Grease” Gets A Re-Release And A Video Game


So I know that, by virtue of being female, I am supposed to love “Grease.” But to be honest, I’ve just never gotten that into it. Something about the message, “If you want the guy … change yourself and wear more pleather,” just never sat that well with me. So I’m wondering why “Grease” is having such a revival at the moment. Last week, Paramount Pictures re-released the flick as “Grease: The Sing-A-Long” in five cities in the U.S. Residents of other cities can go online and vote to get the movie in their area, too. And that’s not all. 505 Games is making “Grease: The Video Game,” which will be available for Wii and Ninetendo DS on August 24. As the press release reads, it’s “loaded with mini-games that let players sing the movie’s iconic songs, dance the hand jive hop, race down Thunder Road, fight for Sandy’s affections and have fun at the fair with Frenchy, Kenickie, Rizzo and the rest of the Greasers.” See a preview for the game after the jump.

So what do you think? Is “Grease” the one that you want, or does this news give you chills that are multiplying in a bad way? Keep reading »

Children Take On “The Real Housewives Of New Jersey”


It’s not a compliment when a 6-year-old can accurately represent who you are without much help beyond a wig and makeup. Just like a group of tots did for “The Hills,” these girls nail the vanity and craziness that surrounds the four “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” The clip features all the juicy bits from the show, like Teresa’s table-flipping, Danielle’s bodyguard, and a lot of use of the word “toxic.” Even Danielle’s daughter is included.
