Jamie Foxx Writing The Script For “Laverne And Shirley” Movie Adaptation

“Sclemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated. We’re gonna do it!” Well, actually Garry Marshall is going to do it — direct a movie adaptation of the classic TV show “Laverne and Shirley,” that is. For those of us old enough to remember enjoying the “Happy Days” spin-off when it originally aired from 1976 to 1983, or who caught it in syndication in the decades that have followed, this may come as good news. Or not. After all, when are movie versions of TV shows ever done well? And when I tell you that Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel are tapped to play the title characters, respectively, the news may make you shudder even more. But there’s a twist! The script is being written by the multi-talented Jamie Foxx, which makes me wonder if they might be able to pull this thing off yet. Time will tell, I guess. Still, I know Marshall could do better than casting Garner and Biel. Who would you like to see play Laverne and Shirley instead? TVGuide suggests Chloe Sevigny as Laverne and Ginnfer Goodwin as Shirley, which sounds like a good bet. OMG! What about Angelina Jolie as Laverne and Jennifer Aniston as Shirley? I’d pay to see that.

Jessica Biel Hops On That Powder Face Trend

Jessica Biel left her house Wednesday without passing a single mirror on the way out. The star showed up to the premiere screening of “Summit on the Summit: Kilimanjaro” in New York with an ode to the snow-covered mountain sitting right on her schnoz. Either that, or Nicole Kidman, who sported the same look recently, is quite the trendsetter. [Hollywood Rag] Keep reading »

Jessica Biel Eats A Chocolate-Covered Cricket

OK, so there is one thing we really like about Jay Leno‘s show—the “Earn Your Plug” segments, where he makes a celebrity do some stupid thing before they get to tell people to go see their newest movie. Last night, Jessica Biel earned the right to plug her new flick and hurt our stomachs in the process. Jay had her eat chocolate-covered things. It started off OK, with chocolate-covered strawberries, but went downhill pretty fast with chocolate-covered pizza and chocolate-covered bacon. And then came the chocolate-covered cricket. Jess gulped down the little critter but looked completely disgusted. On the bright side, no one can accuse her of not eating … on Wednesday night, at least. Keep reading »

Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, And Friends Reach The Top Of Mt. Kilimanjaro

Want me to make you feel lazy for a minute? While you were feeling proud of yourself for making it to the gym a few times so far in the new year, Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, Lupe Fiasco, and Santi White were on a quest to climb Mount Kiliminjaro to raise awareness about the horrible state of drinking water around the globe. Today, after six days on the trail, they reached the summit of the tallest peak in Africa at 19,340 feet. Along the way, they encountered heavy rains, single-digit temperatures, and even a blizzard, but kept on trucking to take this photo at the top. “The last 48 hours have been the most intense and physically grueling experience of my life,” said Emile. “Miraculously, we all made it to the top together.” Lupe Fiasco added, “The thrill of conquering your fears, especially in such a physically and mentally taxing environment, can’t really be done justice in words.” Good work, folks. Now go buy the world a Coke. [People] Keep reading »

Jessica Biel’s Next Movie: “F**king Engaged”

Yes, that’s a curse word in the title. More than a decade later, Jessica Biel is still trying to knock the “7th Heaven” good girl dust off herself. She did a pretty good job of that in “Powder Blue,” playing a stripper who (almost) takes it all off. But sadly, the movie was released straight-to-DVD and wasn’t nearly the breakthrough she was hoping for. Next she was set to star in a sexual satire called “Nailed” (directed by David O. Russell of “Three Kings” and “I Heart Huckabees” fame) until it got shelved. But, do not fret! Jessica has another edgy project in the works. She has signed on to star in and produce a movie that … (wait for it) … has an expletive in the title. “F**king Engaged” is a kid-gloves-off comedy about a couple who make a pact to bone every day before their wedding day, so they don’t become old fogies who never do it. The flick has the potential to be the female answer to “The 40 Year Old Virgin” or “The Hangover”—it’s written by a breakout, young, female screenwriter, Julia Brownell. I’m just glad Jessica wasn’t “too pretty” for the role. [Yahoo News] Keep reading »
