We’re always on the lookout for riding Hollywood stars, and today we have another crop of small names that are about to become big names.
Taylor Kitsch: He’s been on “Friday Night Lights” for five years and had a supporting role as Gambit in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Next year he will be starring in John Carter as the titular character, and we expect Kitsch to go far riding the buzz the film earns him. He also is set to star in the film adaptation of “Battleship” — yeah, the board game. Read more… Keep reading »
In a sea of commercials where skimpily dressed sorority girls try to sell me beer, I’ve depended on the Old Spice Guy for that hottie fix I need to keep me from TiVo-ing away. There was the Isaiah Mustafa era (those were the days!) and then this guy, who was kind of a letdown. Now the new Old Spice Guy is … Fabio.
Really, Old Spice, you went from Isaiah Mustafa to Fabio? No offense, Fab, you’ve got great hair — incredible hair, really! — but this is not working for me. [YouTube] Keep reading »
“I play Corny Collins [in 'Hairspray'], he’s sort of a DJ. He hosts a music show, sort of like a straight Ryan Seacrest … Ryan’s a friend. We’ve kissed.”
—John Stamos talks on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” about his role in an upcoming staging of “Hairspray,” and makes a crack at Ryan Seacrest, who has long been rumored to be gay even though he’s dating Julianne Hough of “Dancing with the Stars” and the upcoming “Footloose.” I have a feeling if John and Ryan were actually buddies, they aren’t anymore.

And so it begins, the frenzied media wars to get the first Casey Anthony television interview. The race to get Casey’s story is so brutal, in fact, that it involves lies, shady deals, cover-ups, and loads of speculation. But Casey’s totally used to all that.
One freelance TV producer Al Taylor already claimed he made a $1 million deal for the first interview. However, Jose Baez, Anthony’s lawyer, denied this claim — from his, eh em, NBC-funded hotel room in NYC, where he’s said to be holed up playing negotiator in the battle of the big TV networks, including NBC, ABC, and CBS, who all want that first interview.
Yep, all your favorite networks are competing to make Casey Anthony rich. While networks say they don’t pay for interviews, there is apparently a heap of money in offering to license photos and other material that can pay big bucks. Gross, right? This whole American way of making undeserved people rich in America is so disgusting, but it’s no one’s fault but our own. Read more… Keep reading »
Straight off the hype for “Horrible Bosses,” the trailer for Jason Sudeikis‘ new movie has hit the interwebs. The flick is called “Good Old Fashioned Orgy” and it looks about as promising as the title. The truly lame premise: when a man’s father decides to sell the summer house he lives and throws oodles of parties in, he decides to have one last hurrah—an orgy. While I appreciate Jason’s mullet in the preview, I shall be skipping this one. Will you? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
