Want to get personal phone call from Christian Slater (yes!) and Charlie Sheen (hell no!)? Lindsay Lohan has a foolproof strategy—get in trouble with the law and then go to rehab. (Relax, people, that is a joke.) Both Christian and Charlie have apparently reached out to Lindsay. Christian tells Details magazine:
“Look, I could spend a lot of time kicking the s**t out of myself for the choices I made. I was dealing with alcoholism and addiction, and there was a lot to take on without much life experience. Addiction is not pretty, and you don’t fully understand it unless you’re dealing with it head-on. That’s why when I see other kids struggling, I will sometimes reach out to them—a call or an e-mail. … Sure, of course [I reached out to LiLo]. I appreciated the people who reached out to me.

Corn Nuts! I am literally shaking with excitement over the news that “Heathers” is being revamped into a TV show. The 1989 movie, the ultimate high school revenge fantasy, elevated Winona Ryder to star status as she tried to fit in with her school’s mean girls, all named Heather.

(a hot Christian Slater) rolled into town and made her his accomplice in murdering the cool kids in school and making ‘em look like suicides. “Heathers” remains one of my top five favorite flicks of all time, and I have a feeling a show based on it could be very, very good—like “Gossip Girl” with a dark comedy twist. Jenny Bicks, a “Sex and the City” writer, is also executive producing. And the word on the street is that Winona and Christian may even be reprising their bad-ass roles. Prepare your croquet mallets and start singing “Que Sera Sera.” [Press Association] Keep reading »
As much as I love Don Draper and Dexter and Hank Moody, I’m always happy to have some new eye candy to gaze upon during my nightly TV ritual. The Fall TV schedule brings a plethora of new faces to the small screen on brand spankin’ new shows that either rule for more than just the hotness (like Fox’s “Fringe”) or are just worth a quick glance (um, “Knight Rider”). After the jump, 10 new-to-TV actors that you won’t want to miss. Keep reading »
This list was very hard to compile because we kept thinking of more and more to add, so maybe there will be a part two. In any case, here are the ten movie characters we’ve had raging crushes on. Not including Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing because that’s just a given. Add your own in the comments!
1. “JAKE RYAN”, Sixteen Candles
