The hit British paranormal dramedy Being Human has been picked up for a second season by BBC One. In addition, Syfy has picked up the project and plans to create an American version. For those unfamiliar with the series it tells the story of three twentysomething roommates — one a werewolf, one a vampire, and the third a ghost — and finds out what happens when they stop being polite and start getting real.No writer has been attached but Syfy prez David Howe stressed that Syfy does not intend to "slavishly replicate the British version." Which is showbiz-speak for "We're making a supernatural version of Big Bang Theory." (THR)

Peace indeed, Corey Feldman. He's getting the big peace out from his Playboy model wife, Susannah Feldman, who just filed for divorce from the childhood actor/adult reality TV star. According to Zimbio:Susannah's flame for Corey was apparently sparked at a young age. She has been quoted as saying, ""I knew I would marry Corey ever since I saw Stand By Me." According to Screen Junkies' unsubstantiated gossip, the official reason for divorce on the document:He's Corey Feldman.We've also heard reports that Susannah was tired of Corey Haim sleeping on their living room couch. Two Coreys is apparently just too much. I know because I've accidently flipped past The Two Coreys.

Who gives a twirling sh*t if Joanna Krupa can dance? I certainly don't. Hey ABC, get a pole up on that stage and watch your ratings skyrocket. Joanna is one of the sexiest woman alive, which is clearly evident by the aurora borealis of "daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!" above. No tap shoes required. A word from Joanna: "I get so sick of wearing lingerie for shoots that I don’t even go to Victoria’s Secret" Lingerie is overrated anyway. Nothing always works. Or bath bubbles. Personally, I prefer the Robocop brand of liquid suds. You have ten seconds to comply with the pics after the jump.
Dudes, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the final season of Lost is going to be c-blocked by the Winter Olympics. Also your mom and I are taking things to the next level.According to Carlton Cuse, Lost will take a break after the first few episodes while NBC airs the Winter Games. The show is expected to return in March.This news comes as a total bummer but on the brightside we won't care much anymore come March. We can get through this together, you guys. (IGN)
Before I Self Destruct Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos 50 Cent can now rightfully don an askew director's cap as he has just released the trailer for his directorial debut Before I Self Destruct. Curtis Jackson aka Fitty aka Mr. Ferrari also stars in the low budget flick where he shows off his acting range (For instance, in some scenes he holds a gun and in others he does not). Beyond that it just seems like inaudible mumbling. And if 50 Cent's albums are any indication, inaudible mumbling sells like hotcakes. The cops is at your Nana's house.

Paranormal Activity is an undoubted success. It cost $11,000 to make and has raked in over $62 million at the box office. I don't have a calculator on hand but when you do the math the profits equal a f*ckload. Of course a sequel is being talked about but more importantly the attention has warranted a pornographic knock-off. Or knockers-off, in this case:Dread Central has alerted us to Jim Wynorski's Para-Knocker's Activity. Yes, the Spielberg of Boob Cinema is taking on the ghost genre and giving it a kinky edge. Filming is slated to begin right after Halloween (presumably because Halloween props will be marked down). Look for it this Spring at the Cans Film Festival.

The TV Subtitling Industry is set to make a bundle this January as mumbly British comic Ricky Gervais has been hired to host the 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards. This comes as no surprise as The Office star has crushed as a presenter at the Emmys for the last few years. Apparently, he's been approached to host other awards shows in the past but never had an interest. In a statement, Gervais… err… stated: "I have resisted many other offers like this, but there are just some things you don't turn down. Not only is this the biggest Hollywood celebration of the industry which includes both film and TV, but also an environment where I feel I can get free reign as a host."The noms for this year's Globes will be announced in December. Gervais appeared most recently in The Invention of Lying and will be seen next in his day-to-day life looking like a human/mole hybrid. (First Showing)

Chris Farley & David Spade Direct TV Commercial – Watch more Funny Videos Direct TV has a new ad that re-creates the "Fat Guy In A Little Coat" scene from Tommy Boy. Many feel the ad is in poor taste given Chris Farley's sad end and are appalled that David Spade would take part. However, in Spade's defense the cable provider did get the consent of the Farley family before he accepted all that blood money. Regardless of your stance on the ethics of advertising, I think that the real lesson here is that life is fleeting and can be torn away from us at any time. Like so many little coats.

According to io9, James Cameron may have spontaneuously come up with the concept for Avatar after reading Poul Anderson's 1957 sci fi novella Call Me Joe, and then conveniently forgetting that he read it:Like Avatar, Call Me Joe centers on a paraplegic — Ed Anglesey — who telepathically connects with an artificially created life form in order to explore a harsh planet (in this case, Jupiter). Anglesey, like Avatar's Jake Sully, revels in the freedom and strength of his artificial created body, battles predators on the surface of Jupiter, and gradually goes native as he spends more time connected to his artificial body.Cameron is no stranger to accusations of plagiary. After Terminator's release, writer Harlan Ellison sued the production company for ripping off two episodes he wrote for The Outer Limits. The company settled and Ellison is acknowledged in the film's credits.As far as Avatar is concerned, at least Cameron had the creative insight to change the name of the title from Call Me Joe. Sounds like a biopic of Joe The Plumber, who would undoubtedly be played by a bald Tim Allen.
Paul Haggis is best known as the Academy Award-winning writer and director of the 2004's Crash aka the Love Actually: Racist Edition. He's not as well known for his dance moves but trust me, dude does a sick robot. Anyhow, the writer/director/dance-fiend is in the news today because he has decided to end his 35 year relationship with Scientology. Incensed that the San Diego's branch of the Church has supported Propostion 8, the anti-gay marriage ballot, Haggis wrote an angry letter to church spokesman Tommy Davis. Here is an excerpt of the controversial letter: "Why are you so dumb?" Oops. Sorry I paraphrased. Here's the actually excerpt: “As you know, for ten months now I have been writing to ask you to make a public statement denouncing the actions of the Church of Scientology of San Diego. […] I called and wrote and implored you, as the official spokesman of the church, to condemn their actions. I told you I could not, in good conscience, be a member of an organization where gay-bashing was tolerated. [...] The church’s refusal to denounce the actions of these bigots, hypocrites and homophobes is cowardly. I can think of no other word. Silence is consent, Tommy. I refuse to consent.”Many members of Hollywood were very vocal in their opposition to Prop 8. Will Haggis's leaving the Church inspire others to jump ship or will it inspire Hollywood to turn its back on Paul Haggis? When making your decision please note that unlike Xenu, Haggis doesn't have his own spacecraft. I think he has a Saab or something. [THR]
Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz has been silent thus far in the back-and-forth speculation on whether or not the cult favorite will find its way to the big screen. Until now. While appearing on a panel alongside series executive producer and Hollywood's beloved ginger Ron Howard, he was asked about the status of the film. Hurwitz confirmed that it is happening and he will be directing. When pressed for more details, Hurwitz only commented that the script will feature "a heavy jail presence." So there you have it. Once again, not much substantial info. The stars haven't been contacted and the project doesn't appear on any production schedules. So let's reclassify this one from a "Maybe" to a "Strongish Maybe Kinda". Don't let this one linger in Production Limbo too long. It very well may be our last chance to see Scott Baio on the big screen. (The Playlist)

A quick trip over to Rotten Tomatoes will show you that Amelia, which opens this weekend, has a favorable rating of about 20%. For those of you who don’t know, that percentage means the movie sucks on a collective level. But you probably didn‘t need some Tomatometer, scientific as it is, to tell you that. After all, does the real life story of the first woman to not fly around the world sound exciting? Christ, why didn’t they just make a movie about my grandma? She didn’t fly around the world either, but unlike Amelia Earhart, she didn’t have a butch haircut. Plus, my grandma made some delicious pierogi. All Amelia made was a wrong turn.*My point is this: if for some reason you are going to make a movie about someone who didn’t do something, there are a lot more impressive failures to choose from. Here are five of them.Marv Levy and the Buffalo Bills – Not Winning Super Bowls

UGO reports that unsung actor Dylan Baker confirmed he will be making a return to the Marvel Universe in Sam Raimi's forthcoming Spider-Man sequel. In fact he had received his first call regarding the film just yesterday. Baker has appeared in both Spider-Man 2 and 3 as Dr. Curt Conners, better known as the web-slinger's scaly nemesis, The Lizard. Baker also reportedly stated that he would essentially have a background role, but no one is sure whether or not it's a joke and he'll finally transform from a mild-mannered Empire State University professor into the lab coat-wearing reptile. You can currently see Dylan Baker in screenwriter-turned writer-director Michael Dougherty's Trick 'r Treat, available on DVD.

MSNBC mistakes Jesse Jackson for Al Sharpton – Watch more Funny VideosWell… kudos, I guess, to MSNBC's Contessa Brewer for not disappearing and leaving a Contessa Brewer-shaped cloud of dust after having the Reverend Jesse Jackson remind her that he is, in fact, not the Reverend Al Sharpton as she introduced him. Apparently MSNBC thinks all wise, elderly black reverends are named Rev. Al Sharpton. Or else they thought Al Sharpton was coming, and he cancelled at the last minute, leaving them with one choice: get "the other one." Then some poor intern forgot to change the script… and the rest pretty writes itself. Tune in to "Countdown" this evening, when Keith Olberman interviews star of the Lethal Weapon series, Forrest Whitaker.
