Carey Mulligan Proves She’s A “Fair Lady”

Carey Mulligan has wowed us with her sophisticated style and serious acting chops. Now we can judge if she has a singing voice to go with the rest of the package. The 24-year-old actress is signed on to play everyone’s favorite street urchin, Eliza Doolittle, in a screen remake of “My Fair Lady.” The casting was confirmed by fellow British actress and the writer of the film, Emma Thompson. But who will play Henry Higgins? Hugh Grant is rumored to be interested, which could be a good way to make up for the just plain bad “Did You Hear About the Morgans?” but nothing is confirmed. I guess Carey should start practicing her Cockney accent and tongue twisters now. The original 1964 film captured eight Academy Awards, so maybe this is a chance for Carey to claim the Oscar that she lost to Sandra Bullock this year. You know, because if you sing in a movie, you’re almost guaranteed to win. Let’s just hope this doesn’t end up being a Pierce Brosnan in “Mamma Mia!” situation. [BBC] Keep reading »

“True Blood” Season 3 Is Brewing

After months of placating myself with reality television because both “Mad Men” and “True Blood” have been off the air, I finally get a glimmer of hope via this teaser poster for the third season of “True Blood.” I am now officially in a tizzy of anticipation for the show and all it took was an appliance full of colored corn syrup. Who else is ready to drink up another season of sex, scandal and Sookie? Keep reading »

Quotable: Chloë Sevigny Says “Big Love” Sucked This Season

“It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not allowed to say that! [Gasps.] It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very farfetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season. And with nine episodes, I think they were just squishing too much in. HBO only gave us nine Sundays … I think that they had more story than episodes … We never know what’s going to happen in the next episode until we’re almost finished shooting the one we’re shooting at present. Me and the girls [Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ginnifer Goodwin] definitely were not very happy with where it was going—or more kind of, ‘We really hope it’s going to work. It seems like they’re really pushing it.’”

Chloë Sevigny explains why I’ve preferred watching Bravo repeats to checking out this season of “Big Love” via OnDemand. What are your thoughts on the show? And will someone please tell me who J.J. is trying to have an incest baby with? Is it his and Nicki’s daughter? Thanks. [A.V. Club] Keep reading »

Charting “Friday I’m In Love”

Ever since I was 13, The Cure has been one of my favorite bands. And while there are way, way better Cure songs than “Friday I’m In Love” (see: the entire contents of Boys Don’t Cry and Pornography), it remains their most famous ditty. So check out this artist’s rendering and sing along. “I don’t care if Monday’s blue/Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday, too/Thursday, I don’t care about you/It’s Friday I’m in love … ” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Mamma Mia! An ABBA Reunion?

Are you ready to break out your one-piece, polyester bell-bottom jumpsuit and your dancing queen platforms? There is a chance that the Nordic, disco-tastic foursome, ABBA, may be reuniting. I know, I know—I never really considered it possible to see them live again since they’ve gone on record saying that they would never get back together. They even turned down a $1 billion tour so that their fans could remember them as the young, hot, exuberant Swedes they once were and not the old folks they are now. But with the success of “Mamma Mia!” and a recent induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, they may take a chance on reuniting. Keep reading »

“The Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Are Ba-ack!

It’s been way too long since we’ve seen a good table flip on TV. So thank goodness that “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” will be back in May. And shocker, the second season seems to be all about hating on Danielle Staub and her new face. “To the end of Danielle. I hope she goes back where she came from — hell!” says Teresa, in a toast, no less. And, wait, is that Teresa running after Danielle to kick her butt? Oh, the drama. Keep reading »

“Fly Girls” Introduces Us To A New Acronym: IFB

Fly Girls,” the new CW reality show that follows a group of flight attendants, premiered last night, and boy was it a doozy. “The Hills” and “Real Houswives” feel scripted, but this show takes “reality” to another level of fake. The first episode did, however, introduce us to a new acronym, IFB, which stands for “in-flight boyfriend.” I think even non-flight attendants can relate to daydreaming about a fellow passenger to pass the flying time.

Even Christina Aguilera’s Robot Half Wears Red Lipstick

Behold, the cover of Christina Aguilera’s new album, Bionic, her first in three and a half years. It’ll be dropping on Jun. 8. And while I like the album art, I wish it looked more real-life cyborg and less drawn. Thoughts? Keep reading »

Frisky Q & A: Singer/Songwriter Sally Seltmann Chats About Her New Album

The moment Sally Seltmann started to sing at the Presbyterian Church during SXSW, my ears instantly perked up. Maybe it was the sound of her angelic voice in a dimly lit church or her jaunty, delicate melodies that got me. After hearing her perform songs from her soon-to-be-released album, Heart That’s Beating (due out on April 9), I couldn’t wait to meet her. I sat down with the Aussie—who used to perform under the name New Buffalo and who wrote Feist’s mega-hit “1, 2, 3, 4″—over some French toast at The Old Pecan Street Café. And she was just as lovely and ethereal in person as she sounded in church. Keep reading »
