Casting Couch: Ashton Kutcher, Ryan Reynolds Coulda Been In “Horrible Bosses”

Over the weekend, “Horrible Bosses” grossed $28 million at the box office. But according to an interview Brett Ratner did with The Hollywood Reporter, in the six years the movie was in development, it could have had a very, very different cast. Ratner explained that many actors had once been attached to take Charlie Day, Jason Bateman, and Jason Sudeikis’ roles—including Ashton Kutcher, Ryan Reynolds, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Johnny Knoxville, and then Ashton Kutcher again.

Racist Doctor Writes Prescription For Mom To Spank Her 5-Year-Old Biracial Son

Oh, Texas.

A mother appeared before the Texas Medical Board last week to complain about an ER doctor at Huguley Memorial Medical Center who treated her five-year-old boy for a finger infection and wrote a prescription for her to “apply large paddle to bottom of child anytime he needs it.” What’s even more WTF about this story? The physician, Dr. Carl W. Gossett, who is white, asked the child’s race first. When she informed him her son was biracial, the doc asked, “How does your family feel about that?”, meaning, you know, teh interracial sex. Keep reading »

A Sneak Peek At The “Dallas” Reboot

We’re still not 100 percent in favor of a network dredging up a television hit of yesteryear and updating it with hot, young actors. I mean, the rebooted “90210” and “Hawaii 5-0″ have their moments—but the new “Melrose Place” was truly terrible and we don’t have huge hopes for Minka Kelly’s “Charlie’s Angels.” Last night, TNT debuted a preview of their rehash of “Dallas,” which will feature original stars Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray alongside newcomers Jesse Metcalf, Josh Henderson, and Jordana Brewster. In the preview, J.R. and Bobby Ewing do the most talking while the hot, young things do a lot of … makeout scenes. So maybe this show will be okay after all? We’ll have to wait until next summer to see. [EW] Keep reading »

“NY Post” In Trouble For Accusing Hotel Maid Of Prostitution

Fireworks weren’t the only thing exploding over 4th of July weekend: that’s also when The New York Post published a scathing front-page article about the hotel maid who accused ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault which, among other things, called her a prostitute. The paper quoted an unnamed source “close to the investigation” who said, “There is information … of her getting extraordinary tips, if you know what I mean. And it’s not for bringing extra f**king towels.” It basically insinuated the woman was being pimped out by her union.

The newsprint probably wasn’t even dry before the hotel maid, a refugee from Guinea who lives in the Bronx, filed a libel lawsuit against the Post. Now, as media reporters, like Erik Wemple at The Washington Post, look closer at the Post‘s so-called reportage, the prostitution allegation looks even fishier. Instead, it looks more like a smear to make this woman just look like some whore. Keep reading »

Helen Mirren Says It Gets Better (After Your 20s)

“The hardest period in life is one’s 20s. It’s a shame because you’re your most gorgeous and you’re physically in peak condition. But it’s actually when you’re most insecure and full of self-doubt. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s frightening.”

—It’s difficult to imagine Helen Mirren was ever insecure or filled with self-doubt — that’s her back in the day, yowza! — but apparently it is so. Would that we all age gracefully with kick-ass-edness, as she does. [Esquire] Keep reading »
