Obama Plays Daniel Day Lewis Playing Obama

On the set of his latest film, “Lincoln,” Lewis lived as Abraham Lincoln 24/7, and the same goes for his characters in “There Will Be Blood” and “Last of the Mohicans.” So it makes total sense that in Steven Spielberg’s latest biopic, “Obama,” Lewis would really…

Call it an enigma wrapped in a mystery stuffed in a donut. “Community”‘s Donald Glover has signed up to play Young Tracy Jordan on an upcoming episode of “30 Rock.” Actually, it’s going to be during “30 Rock”‘s second-ever live episode, so that should be pretty exciting.

Tina Fey Calls Tracy Morgan’s Anti-Gay Bigotry “Disturbing”

“I’m glad to hear that Tracy apologized for his comments.

Celebs Who Endorse Donald Trump For President — And The Ones Who Don’t

If Donald Trump seriously runs for president (which I don’t think will happen, but still) and gets so much as one single vote in the primaries, I am moving to Canada. No ifs, ands or buts about it.

Quickies: Sarah Palin Is “Great Masturbation Material” For Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan called Sarah Palin “great masturbation material” — a sexist assessment of the telegenic but dimwitted ex-governor, but nevertheless one that holds a grain of truth.
