The movie “The Kids are All Right” was a huge critical and audience hit in 2010, so we’re psyched that the film — about a lesbian couple raising teenagers conceived via the same sperm donor — is being turned into a TV show on HBO. But in an interesting turn, producer Celine Rattray told New York that the series adaptation will show the characters lives both before and after the events of the film. Originally slated as a continuation, Rattray says that all five characters — the two moms, the two kids, and the sperm donor dad — will return, though, “right now, we’re figuring out if we show what happens with the meeting in the movie.” Keep reading »

James Bond fans, meet your two new Bond girls. Today in London, the cast and crew of “Skyfall,” the name of the 23rd James Bond film, gathered for a press conference and revealed for the first time which women would be distracting the notorious ladies man 007. According to TooFab:
French actress Berenice Marlohe, who stunned in a sexy red dress, will play the glamorous Severine … though, at the moment, not much more is known about her character. Naomie Harris will also star in the film as a field agent named Eve — and Harris revealed she’s been doing yoga, stunt driving and firing machine guns to prepare for the role. We like her already.

Emma Stone is currently in negotiations to appear in the rom-com “He’s F**kin’ Perfect.” The film follows a ”social media savvy girl who is pessimistic about love and vets her friends’ dates to find flaws. When that process leads her to uncover the perfect guy, she decides to use her internet research skills to turn herself into his perfect match.” We’re not sure how long the present title will survive, but it does sound like a f**kin’ perfect role for Emma Stone. “He’s Fuckin’ Perfect” is a debut screenplay from Lauryn Kahn, who has spent the last four years working as assistant to director Adam McKay (“Anchorman,” “Step Brothers”). (McKay will act as as producer alongside Will Ferrell via their production company Gary Sanchez Productions.) Keep reading »
“I think it’s harder to date as an Angel, [because] when people meet [us] it’s hard to look past our job, what we look like. They are always trying to impress you, you know, like ‘come to my mansion blah blah blah.’”
– Poor Victoria’s Secret model/lingerie “angel” Candice Swanepoel, who must constantly deal with a barrage of annoying suitors who want to whisk her away to their mansions. It’s so difficult being pretty. [Stylelist]
Here at The Frisky, we’re unabashed fans of the boob tube, but books are our first love. So, when we heard one of our favorite networks — HBO — was turning the much-hyped book Swamplandia! into a mini-series, we bumped it up to the top of our must-read list. (First of all, any book that has an exclamation point in the title piques our interest.) Karen Russell’s book takes place in the Florida Everglades and is about a teenaged girl desperately trying to keep her family’s gator-wrestling theme park in business after her mom passes. Sounds like a page-turner to us! If you’ve read it, share what you thought in the comments! [$10.17, Amazon]
