The Rock Bottom Remainders: Writers Gone Rock Star

As the cliches go, critics want to be artists, actors want to be directors, and writers want to be rock stars. Very few of the latter actually go for it—which is why I am so in love with The Rock Bottom Remainders, a band made up of authors like Dave Barry (guitars), Amy Tan (left, vocals), Mitch Albom (keyboards) and James McBride (saxophone). Many others—like Stephen King and Matt Groening—have played with the band during its 18-year existence. As the band’s tagline goes, “We’ve sold more books than The Doors, The Beatles and Rolling Stones together.” They just finished their April 2010 Wordstock tour, which raised money for Haiti, and actually managed to pick up some mediocre reviews along the way. Of the band’s New York show, the NY Post wrote, “During the 100-minute performance, Barry wasn’t Slash, but he was slick in his guitar work. The rest of the ragtag lit rockers in the lineup also fell into the not-so-rarefied air between pretty good and not so bad.” But rave reviews aren’t what this band’s about—they’re more into having fun and raising money for good causes. In all, the band has raised more than $2 million for charity. All I can say is, keep on rockin’ in the literary world, guys. Keep reading »

Your Daily Cry: The “Mother And Child” Trailer

The rest of you don’t cry every day? Oh, uh, me neither. But I did tear up at the trailer for “Mother and Child,” a film starring Naomi Watts, Annette Bening and Kerry Washington, about how three women’s lives are affected by adoption. Karen gave a baby up for adoption at 14; Elizabeth grew up as an adopted child; and Lucy can’t get pregnant so she and her husband are trying to adopt. “Mother and Child” debuts in NYC and LA on May 7th and in theaters elsewhere after. Just the sob-worthy drama you need for your mama to see on Mother’s Day! [Sony] Keep reading »

10 Ways Jake Pavelka Could Extend His 15 Minutes Now That He’s Off “Dancing With The Stars”

Last night, Jake Pavelka was ousted from “Dancing with the Stars,” ending his run on three ABC reality shows in a row. Maybe he should’ve undone a few more buttons? Oh wait. Anyway, today, he appeared on “GMA” to talk to George Stephanapoulos about it. Of course, Jake says that the “Dancing” experience has only made him and Vienna stronger. “Vienna has been amazing,” he said. “She’s been a cornerstone through all of this — cooking me breakfast every morning, she brings Chelsie and I lunch a lot of times — and I owe her big. She put her life on hold for me to do this and so I’m going to go romance my bride.”

Earlier this year, an ex accused Jake of being voraciously fame-hungry. And he gave a rather cryptic answer when asked if he was going back to flying. “You know what, flying, no matter what happens, will always be a huge part of my life,” he said. “You never know what door God’s going to open, but right now the plan is to fly airplanes.” [Reality TV World]

But the man has two hands—why not open some doors on his own? After the jump, 10 ideas Jake should consider to stay in the public eye. Keep reading »

Why Katie Holmes Will Make A Great Jacqueline Kennedy

Post-Joey Potter, everyone thought Katie Holmes would have a long and fruitful career. But then she met Tom Cruise, got married, and had baby Suri. Ever since, she’s taken notably few roles. This week, however, she’s signed on for a big one. She’ll be starring in the History Channel’s 8-part miniseries “The Kennedys” as Jackie Kennedy, opposite Greg Kinnear as JFK. The series, produced by the creator of “24,” will focus on the early years of JFK’s presidency. Even though I secretly wish they’d cast Joshua Jackson as JFK, I am pretty pumped about this. After the jump, the reasons I think Katie could rock this role. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

“Downtown Girls” = “The Hills,” “The City” And “Sex & The City” In A Blender

Did you watch this video of Shallon Lester, former New York Daily News gossip columnist, telling men she judges them by their jeans? Well, there’s more where that came from! On June 1, MTV is debuting “Downtown Girls,” a reality TV show about — wait for it — rich, beautiful 20- and 30-somethings who appear to live and/or party at a huuuuge apartment in downtown Manhattan. There’s Nikki the “rich girl”; Gurj Bassi, the “crazy Brit” (who’s on Twitter); Klo, “the slightly older, definitely wiser one”; Victoria, “the ditzy one”; and, of course, Shallon, who is now a writer at Glamour and “observes everything and tries to make sense of it all.” And judges men based on their jeans.

But hey, I’m not gonna lie: I’ll totally watch this crap. [MTV] Keep reading »
