Yesterday I posited a theory that George Lucas may be the shadowy puppet-master pulling the strings of the mysterious Hollywood Star Whackers due to a report that the special effects maestro is buying the film rights to dead celebrities. Correction: he is not.
Just to put it in perspective, remember that political blog you started back in college? It received six total clicks, four of which were from you at different machines around the computer lab. Multiply that times a million, and you’ve got the same numbers that AMC is putting up.
It has been rumored that Paul Rudd would voice the new (dork) muppet Walter in his friend Jason Segel’s The Muppets. Well the actor just called bullsh*t on that idea.
Kathryn Bigelow will have to wait longer than planned to tactfully ask Triple Frontier’s make-up stylist to apply extra powder to Tom Hanks’s giant forehead. That project has encountered complications and will be pushed back to Fall 2011.

Stone has ditched her ginger locks for a blond dye job because of her role as Gwen Stacy, Spidey’s first girlfriend.
Matt Damon had better work on his jazz hands. George Clooney is getting into the musical game. He is attached to direct a film adaptation of the UK stage production, Enron: The Musical, sometime after he wraps Farragut North.
We don’t always agree on the happenings in the entertainment industry and we like to make our beefs public. There’s no denying that RoboCop is part man and part machine, but it’s unlikely that it’s evenly split. Which part dominates his makeup? Fight!
In an effort to make frat guys care about voting, Jay Roach is hoping to direct Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in a political comedy about two candidates in time for the 2012 presidential election.
Meet Peter Parker’s parents. Campbell Scott and Julianne Nicholson will play Spidey’s moms and pops in Sony’s reboot.
I don’t know why the fate of Two Face at the end of The Dark Knight was ever up for debate. Probably because it is a Christopher Nolan movie and people are all about obsessing over the ends of his films.
Kate Winslet is saying things about her ex-husband’s affairs. The British actress told The Daily Mail that she is looking to move her children back to London as Sam Mendes, her former hubby, directs the newest Bond film. Shooting could begin as early as the end of next year.
If you were worried that Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides would be your last chance to see Johnny Depp wear a floppy hat and talk like a drunken stroke victim, don’t fret. You’ll have at least two more chances.
Since appearing as a hot hippie on “Mad Men,” Abigail Spencer’s career has been picking up steam. With Cowboys & Aliens under her giant Western belt buckle, she’s ready to join McG’s This Means War.
Good news for people who like serial killers and ridiculous plots (I kid because I love). Showtime has renewed “Dexter” for its sixth season.
Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi are close to joining the cast of Contraband, Variety is reporting. If the deal goes through, the pair will join Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale, who have already been cast in the thriller.
Are the Farrelly brothers about to escape development hell? Maybe. Twentieth Century Fox is taking over the brothers’ long-awaited modern day The Three Stooges adaptation, pulling the project from the clammy grip of the now-officially-bankrupt MGM.
Outspoken comedian Neil Hamburger, a Tim & Eric favorite, has taken it upon himself to launch an anti-Yogi Bear tirade on his @neil_hamburger Twitter account. Neil doesn’t mince words in his explicit bursts of disgust over the live action/animated hybrid featuring Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake as the voices of Yogi and Boo Boo, respectively.
After weeks of painstaking research, I’ve come up with this list of seven probable victims of the “Hollywood Star Whackers.” They are the key to figuring out the “who” and “why”…and god willing, maybe “how much” and “how many.”
Our nerd friends over at GameFront put together an impressive rant on why Mark Wahlberg should not have been given the lead role in David O. Russell’s adaptation of the PS3 blockbuster game, Uncharted.
If I had a dime for every project that Steve Carell has sold I’d have enough dimes to put into a sock and beat my mailman. Speaking of mailmen, Steve Carell has sold a post office comedy to NBC.
What do you get when the world’s most reclusive author and a notoriously paranoid Hollywood filmmaking sensation meet somewhere in the smoke-filled depths of creative abstraction and start comparing notes? Presumably, you get a pretty damn good movie.
Yesterday, several of Quentin Tarantino’s friends gathered in New York for lunch to roast the director in only a way that the Friars Club can. They all gave Tarantino sh*t about his face, cadence, use of language, and supposed foot fetish.
Future Oscar host James Franco and guy who dresses embarrassingly at the Oscars Ben Stiller are set to join Noah Baumbach’s next project. Taste the angst!!
Batman has Robin. Siegfried has Roy. And The Lone Ranger has Tonto. So with Johnny Depp already cast as Tonto in Gore Verbinksi’s Lone Ranger, who does the actor feel would best complete the pair?
Dani Pudi plays the character on “Community” who provides most of the show’s self-referential meta humor. So it makes sense that Abed is responsible for a stop-motion animated episode in the tradition of the Rankin Bass specials.
