I am very meh on the thought of Ben Affleck playing the latest iteration of Batman — I don’t think he’s the best actor, though I suppose Batman/Bruce Wayne does have a rather wooden personality, and I also just don’t get why the world needs so many Batmans anyway. But I might be to get a little bit excited about this new reboot if it turns out to be true that instead of a male actor playing Batman’s sidekick Robin, actress Jena Malone is stepping into the role. For starters, Jena Malone is rad. Now she can act. But secondly, HELL YES to a female Robin. Malone will reportedly play Carrie Kelly, aka the female Robin appearing in the alternate universe of “The Dark Knight Returns.” [Variety]
No matter how many times he sadly sits down to eat a cupcake alone on a park bench — and you endlessly insert that same picture into images filled with cats or a reproduction of Lunch Atop A Skyscraper or whatever—Keanu Reeves will forever be known as the man who started Dogstar and, in turn, ruined it for all other actors to start bands without public outcry and critical mockery.
Lucky for us, there’s a new crop of fresh-faced thespians that might actually be able to shake the Dogstar curse and, dare we say, become both successful actors/actresses and musicians. So take a look—and a listen—at the following artists that are sure to be embraced by moviegoers and concertgoers alike. Keep reading »
Jena Malone wore a white-on-white-on-white ensemble to last week’s “Limitless” premieree, and radiated sexy, clean beauty. We love the way she offsets the sheerness of her blouse by buttoning it all the way up, and like the subtle texture play (pleats! edgy jacket!) at work, too. Yes, you can wear white after Labor Day — and a lot of it. Steal her look, after the jump! Keep reading »
Jena Malone is one of those actresses I love but feel I never see enough of. Here, the “Donnie Darko” and “Into the Wild” star plays a stripper in a music video for Dirty Vegas’ “Electric Love.” The story line isn’t altogether clear (are they ever?), but one man seems to find Malone the object of his strange desire, whether she’s a stripper working the pole or a cowgirl doing the two-step. Note to guys: What this dude does to himself at the end, you really, really shouldn’t try at home. Keep reading »
When did Jena Malone wake up and become so damn adorably hot? It seems like just yesterday she was the heartbreaking young star in Bastard Out Of Carolina, a movie in which her character faces some very horrifying adult problems. Now Jena is 23-years old and one of the stars of The Ruins — she showed up to the premiere rocking a very cool flapper-esque bob and some serious spunk. Nice havin’ ya back, Jena! Keep reading »
