Attention “Veronica Mars” fans! Kristen Bell and Co. have been busy filming the flick, which raised some of its funds on Kickstarter, and they’re finally ready to show the show’s loyal following a preview of what to expect. Think before you click — there are spoilers in the interviews and scenes packed into the four minute video above. [The Mary Sue]
Happy Halloween from Britney Spears and her Madonna-esque faux-English accent, which she utilizes to recite the opening monologue of “Thriller” while cavorting, uh, creepily alongside green-screen ghouls and graveyards. I don’t completely understand what I’ve just seen, but Bert-Bert looks conscious, which is ALWAYS a good thing. [Jezebel]
I always manage to forget that Jude Law is actually a terrific actor. “The Talented Mr. Ripley”? “I Heart Huckabees”? “Closer”? So good! Jude’s latest role is as the titular “Dom Hemingway,” a gangster free after 12 years in prison, trawling the streets of London to collect what he’s rightfully owed. Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir, and “Game of Thrones” beauty (and Frisky favorite) Emilia Clarke also star in what looks to be a violent, vulgar, and shockingly hilarious new film. “Dom Hemingway” premiered in London last night, but it won’t hit American theaters until next April. In the meantime, let’s hope this cheeky (literally) trailer can hold us over. Not safe for work, unless your place of work, like mine, is firmly pro-Jude Law’s naked bum. [via Celebitchy]
This baby goat has decided that his days in the pen are over. They say you have to step on others to get to the top, but this escape artist took it literally. I wonder if he planned his way out for a while with his donkey friend before taking his leap to freedom or just seized an opportunity when it presented itself. Either way, I admire him for being so brave! He could have ended up impaled on the side of a fence, but instead he’s runnin’ free around the barnyard. [Huffington Post]
Depending on who you ask, season three of “Homeland” is either going further off the rails than season two, or has helped the show regain the excitement and appeal of season one. But both sides would probably agree that this “Sesame Street” parody of “Homeland,” called “Homelamb,” is better than most of the episodes in season two. Baaaaah-rody is literally a wolf in sheep’s clothing! And don’t mind Saaaaaaaaul — he’s just feeling a little sheepish. As for Carrie? She’s as emotional as ever. [NYMag.com]
“You’re too ugly to be raped”? I’ll let Pages Matam‘s poem “Piñata” speak for itself. [via Upworthy]
“When I came back from the hospital the first thing I did was go and look at my vagina in the mirror. It looks better looking than before. … I just want to come out to the world, and be naked and be like, ‘I look so hot. I am back.’”
Last night’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” did not actually feature Kim Kardashian giving birth to daughter North West, but it did check in with her after the birth. I’m glad to hear Kim’s vag is in good shape, especially since one of the more common, and I think silly, worries that pregnant women have is that giving birth vaginally will wreck their lady business. In fact, I have a friend, who shall remain nameless, who had really long labia, but after she gave birth, those lips shrunk right up. Not that there’s anything wrong with long labia — I have embraced mine — but it’s interesting to know that giving birth can give your cooch a natural makeover. Anyway, good morning, it’s Monday, and I’m done writing about Kim Kardashian’s vagina now. [Entertainment Wise]
Despite successfully killing all their fellow tributes in “The Hunger Games,” Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are not done kicking ass and taking names. In “Catching Fire,” Katniss and Peeta are back in the arena for the Quarter Quell, when past winners of the Hunger Games compete against each other. In this final trailer for the film, which opens November 22, we finally get a glimpse at the arena, some of the amazing costumes, and those freaky Jabberjays. But why, why, why is there no Finnick?!
No. No no no. Lou Reed, rock ‘n’ roll legend and frontman of the Velvet Underground, passed away in New York City at age 71 today. No cause of death has been released yet, but Reed underwent a liver transplant in May. Satellite’s gone up to skies. Enjoy your walk on the wild side, Lou. Rest in peace. [Rolling Stone]
The best part of last night’s Edward Norton-hosted “Saturday Night Live” was this digital short, a mock trailer for the Wes Anderson-directed horror flick, “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders.” It features all of the classic Wes Anderson tropes: actors like Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tilda Swinton, and Danny Glover; a pair of precocious children; cutesy, diorama-like sets; an array of artfully presented weapons, like a picture of Edith Piaf and a protractor; a totally twee plot; and, of course, a stop-motion mouse. Only this time, a scary murderer is on the loose. Watch above!
