According to Variety, Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables cast just expanded by two more: WWE's Stone Cold Steve Austin and Charisma Carpenter, of TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and CSI. Looks like Stallone's taking a lotta names, but will the film also kick ass? And the biggest question still remains… will Ahnold be the icing on this explosives-laced cake?And here is the rest of your morning news:Orphanage director finds home at Summit (Variety)Joaquin Phoenix goes Axl Rose at nightclub (FilmDrunk)Jeff Goldblum joins insemination comedy The Baster (Coming Soon)

You know, watching today's TV sitcoms just ain't the same as twenty years ago. Don't get me wrong. The technology is miles apart. We have single-camera shows that out-slick their studio-based counterparts, and modernized three- or four-camera studio-based shows that outwit their predecessors. But there's something sorely missing in our current crop of "laffers." And that's a great theme song. Back in the 80s, the theme song meant something. It was survival of the catchiest. It had to have a hummable hook. And more importantly, it had to have lyrics that not only got you singing along, but that taught you a valuable life lesson. Theme songs were our education away from school, and more than likely, we learn a lot more from some power chords and a so-white-he's-pale singer waxing lyrical than we ever did from our teachers. And so, it is with great pleasure, that Sceen Junkies presents the Top 12 80s Theme Songs to Live By. #12 FULL HOUSE
Of the infinite reasons I miss living in Austin, Texas, here's one: Universal Pictures heads there this weekend to give South by Southwest (SXSW) 2009 attendees a sneak peek at footage from Sasha Baron Cohen's Bruno March 15th at 11:00pm. Alls ya gotta do to see it is arrive early to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar! No badge is needed and attendance is free. Oh and if you didn't know, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema serves beer, beer, and beer (and beer) during their screenings. They have waiters that bring it right out to you. Brewskies and Bruno… Vassup!

With the I LOVE YOU, MAN DVD & Blu-Ray hitting the street on August 11th, Screen Junkies decided this list needed a bit of an update (or upchuck, perhaps). We're still paying homage to the vomit takes, barf clips and hurl gags that came "B.R." (That's "Before Rudd"), but we want to lead this list with an all-new exclusive DVD clip that tells you just HOW they pulled off the now infamous scene of Rudd puking all over IRON MAN 2 director (and occasional actor) Jon Favreau.
So, not only could we be getting a Pirates of the Caribbean 4, but Britain's coolest comedian alive, Russell Brand, could be joining the cast. I don't know about you, but I think Brand is exactly what the series needs. You know people will come to theaters in droves regardless, but I could overlook what'll likely be the most convoluted plot yet if Mr. Brand is trading verbal blows with Cap'n Jack Sparrow. Or maybe they won't be adversaries… maybe… they're brothers? Let the speculation commence. Here’s your morning news.

“Sandwiches are usually a natural source of deliciousness BUT some lunchmeats are darker than others. And when combined with condiments of fear you get… SANDWICH OF TERROR.” If you are a fan of Tales from the Darkside or The Outer Limits or enjoy a cool, refreshing meatball hoagie on a hot summer’s day then this is the web series for you.

Adolf Hitler was the cause of numerous attrocities that lead to the deaths of millions and he ruined that mustache for the rest of us. However I have to give credit where credit is due, bitch can sing.
Stan Lee and the geniuses at the BBC have teamed up to make a kid’s version of Who Wants To Be A Superhero? On the program, children aged 9 to 13 create superhero personas and break down into tears when the judges harshly pulverize their hopes. I know what you’re thinking. It sounds awesome. We haven’t seen the show ourselves because we don’t speak British but we have provided a handy episode guide after the jump. The show seems really severe.

Marvel Comics is now streaming the first episode from the 1970′s Japanese television version of Spider-man. It’s unlike any Spidey you’ve ever seen before. Giant robots, motorcycles, ghosts, scientists, monsters,…
The day for which many have been waiting is finally upon us. After a very public legal battle and gazillions of marketing dollars spent, fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. Today Zach Snyder’s adaptation of Watchmen opens in theaters. It’s expected to dominate the box office for the foreseeable future. How can the other studios compete? They can’t. That’s why they’re releasing the worst films on their rosters in hopes of getting them in and out of theaters quickly and quietly. After the jump are the movies that will be trounced at this weekend’s box office. I’m not sure why anyone in his or her right mind would ever produce these in the first place or want to see them.
According to a report from Entertainment Weekly Larry David will be joined by some old co-workers when Curb Your Enthusiasm returns for its seventh season. Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards will also guest on the HBO series.
I’ve always imagined William Shatner to smell the way a ham does as it bakes. Slow juices mingling with the snappy zest of a pineapple ring. Apparently, I couldn’t have been further from the truth. The bored fine folks over at Genki Wear have developed Tiberius; a scent that combines notes of sweet citron, black pepper, cedar, vanilla, white musk and sandalwood.
With Joaquin Phoenix pursuing a mushroom-induced musical career, we thought that we would take a moment to point out the missteps taken by those before him. These vanity projects should serve as a warning to any actor who has rock and roll dreams to stick with their dayjob. And a reminder to all of us that fame makes people crazy.
Surprise! Daphne’s not dead! Surprise! Sylar’s not dead! Surprise! Some dude who you absolutely wished had kicked the bucket is not dead! If there’s one thing the Heroes writers have proven themselves to be incapable of, it’s killing off a character.

If you're having horizontal relations on a regular basis, chances are pretty good you're busy Saturday night. But fear not you coupled soldier you, there is no reason your bro-ness has to be sacrificed in the name of Saint Valentine. I know I'm planning on dinner for two and a movie in the comfort of my apartment, but if you're just starting down the road of monogamy you're going to be expected to leave the house. So when it comes to what movie you're going to see at the multiplex after your romantic dinner, keep in mind February 14th is her day. Which means unless your GF is crazy awesome, My Bloody Valentine 3D is out. So here's a run down of what you'll need to sit through if you want to see her naked later.
After paying an exorbitant fee on Ticketmaster just to print your tickets out (convenient and immediate), you still have to scour for parking, only to wait in line behind whatever flannel print happens to be popular at the moment, to stand in another line to show your I.D. for foamy, overpriced draft beer in a plastic cup. After securing that perfect spot, to the left of the guy in the stovepipe hat and respectfully buffered from the fledgling larva of a mosh pit. The band lumbers onstage.They rush through eight songs, including that one that your girlfriend recognizes, “I know this! I didn’t know these guys sang this! I like this song.”Through the miracle of home DVD, you can now enjoy your favorite bands in the coolest of dive bars, “Your Couch”. These magical discs carry backstage interviews, a biography, and occasionally a sound check. These are rockumentaries. And they rock. Enjoy them at your leisure at home, where the bathroom isn’t blanketed with an inch of urine.
The Grammys are really not worth watching, especially if you are a straight male. But there have been some awesome moments in live TV which would have never happened without them. Here’s are a few of those little gems.
A few points of clarification on the recent email sent by Twitter regarding the @Michael_Bay profile.1) Michael Bay's Movies have GIANT FIGHTING Robots. 2) Michael Bay is AWESOME.3) We are not the real Michael Bay.
When the economy tanks so do the ads. Whether companies are wanting to spend less on high-budget spots or they're trying to be more in tune with the popularity of viral videos this year, most of the ads were stripped-down compared to years past. There were a few very entertaining ones (but nothing on the level of Cat Herders). The game was good and here are our favorites.Doritos- Free Doritos Free Doritos Ad-Superbowl 2009 – Watch more Free Videos

It's a rare thing when a woman can appeal to both your brain and your boner. But through a blend of sexiness, quirk, smarts, and style, the following women have ingratiated themselves to our best and worst intentions. Keep up the good work, ladies.
Not every commercial can come from the typewriter of Darren Stevens or the desk of Don Draper. Here is a cluster of shoddily made local commercials. I urge you, DO NOT get up for a beer. Do not even get up to piss. Just sit back and enjoy these words from the sponsors.
