This week, we caught a glimpse of both Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt rocking bald heads. Both hairdos are apparently for upcoming movies. Channing’s freshly shaved head was noticed by the papparazi as he walked around in LA, and many are assuming it’s for his role as Duke in “GI Joe 2: Cobra Strikes,” which has just started filming.
Meanwhile, Joseph’s shorn locks are for a very different movie. Keep reading »
Everyone in the media has been scratching their heads on how to write about Rep. Michele Bachmann‘s bigotry towards gays and her husband Marcus Bachmann’s work “treating” gays in so-called “ex-gay therapy.” He apparently said gay people are “barbarians” that need to be “educated” and “disciplined.” Do we report this as straight news? Blow a gasket over how cruel and dehumanizing they are? Even Jon Stewart struggled with how to report on Marcus Bachmann on last night’s episode of “The Daily Show.” That’s when Jerry Seinfeld came to the rescue and prescribed a spoonful of “ex-comic therapy.”

“The trauma of the whole thing has been humbling, and for the first time, I’m a little bit wobbly … It makes you a more empathetic person, and I think it’s made me a better actress.

“Community” is hands down one of my favorite shows on television, and Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs are so, so brilliant in their roles as uptight Annie and posh girl Britta, respectively. So it makes me a touch sad that one of the few ways they can get space in a magazine is to put on lingerie and pretend to spank each other with hairbrushes. But then again, this photo is hot. And they do have a sense of humor about it. “With a shoot like this, you’re negotiating these positions together,” said Alison. “‘Can you move your crotch a little to the left? Really get it up there.’” Gillian adds, “The next day we were texting each other, ‘Are you sore, too?’” So I guess I approve. [GQ] Keep reading »
Melissa McCarthy and Joshua Jackson woke up very early this morning to announce this year’s Emmy nominations. Unfortunately, they didn’t get to show off their personalities much—the proceedings were austere, as usual, with just a smattering of laughs and giggles, and the whole thing was over in six minutes flat. After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF of the nominations. Keep reading »
