Ahhh, “21 Jump Street.” The show that introduced us to our crush of the past 23 years, Johnny Depp. The premise was a little weak—a group of young-looking undercover officers investigate crimes committed by and to those who aren’t yet of age. (Check out the first 10 minutes of the pilot above.) Now, “Jump Street” is headed for the big screen. The stars attached? Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Wait, do we smell a buddy cop movie? Suffice it to say that Channing is no Johnny, but still—this could be pretty good. [EW] Keep reading »
Look! It’s models getting ready to walk in the Victoria’s Secret runway show! They call this “couture.” (Hm.) They are very excited about their fittings! The theme is “A Night of 1,000 Fantasies,” which is one way of saying, “Men across the country will be masturbating to this.” There are six sections that represent six types of women! What are they? I must know which one I am! They are Tough Love, Game On, Country Girls, Heavenly Bodies, Wild Things, and Pink. Which one am I?! Who knows. Adriana Lima says, “Zeriouzzly, dis iz deh beegest weeng eye evah hayd.” We concur! Only 20 more days until this thing airs. We can hardly stand the wait. Keep reading »
“Lake Shore” is Canada’s answer to MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” It’s a new reality show that will follow “eight vibrant and volatile 20-somethings through the streets of Toronto.” But the Canucks upgraded the concept to make it more of a multi-cultural, pan-sexual, guido bonanza where STD testing is free for all. The cast includes Sibel the Turk, Joey the Italian, Anni Mei the Vietnamese, Tommy Hollywood the Czech, Robyn the Jew, Salem the Lebanese (and he’s gay!), Karolina the Pole, and Downtown D the Albanian. And they already hate each other before they’ve even moved in! Oh Canada, how can we ever thank you? [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
Even those of us who proudly call ourselves feminists can admit that sometimes other feminists can be a wee bit extreme. That’s why “Vag Magazine,” a new webisode series about a cabal of young feminist hipsters who buy out fashion magazine Gemma with proceeds of their Etsy shop and replace it with uber-P.C. mag Vag, had me peeing my pants laughing. (Pants, of course, being what I wear, as skirts and dresses are tools of the patriarchy.) Staff members Sylvie, Fennell, Bethany, Heavy Flo, and Reba have big dreams for Vag, but Meghan, the lone holdover from Gemma, is increasingly terrified at how little sense these ladies make.
I watched five episodes of “Vag Magazine” — you can watch a couple more after the jump — and I knew I just had to talk to its creators, Upright Citizens Brigade alums/comediennes Caitlin Tegart and Leila Cohan-Miccio. After the jump, read my chat with Caitlin and Leila about third-wave feminists, their hilarious cast of improv stars-to-be, the MarieClaire.com piece about “fatties,” and what it’s like for ladies in comedy. Oh, I’m sorry, womyn in comedy. Keep reading »
