It seems like more women in Hollywood are getting into roles as either porn stars or strippers. I guess times are tough. Last week it was Jessica Biel playing an artsy stripper. This week its Carla Gugino prepping to act our her the best fake DVDA scene that the Groundlings Acting Academy could ever prep you for. According to Empire, "The film's a sequel to Women in Trouble, an ensemble comedy about a day in the lives of 10 LA women." HA! See! That proves my long held suspicion: One out of ten women in Los Angeles are in fact porn stars. Carla Gugino to play a porn star (Empire)

Every once in a while you see a real news report that looks like it's explaining a scene from a movie. I always thought it would be awesome to devote an entire night of news to covering the carnage that occurs in one film. Live Free or Die Hard would be a good one. It would take five full hours of uninterrupted coverage to detail the destroyed buildings, cabs launched into helicopters, and dead bystanders.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, JLH has been busy. Among other projects, her newly bolstered production company has been developing the Untitled Odessa Project, a movie for Lifetime based on a Texas Monthly article titled She Had Brains, a Body, and the Ability to Make Men Love Her. It recounts the true story of a 22-year-old housewife and former homecoming queen in Odessa who became one of the city's most popular hookers. She is also has a 10-book graphic novel series in the works with IDW comics entitled Jennifer Love Hewitt's The Music Box. That, among other items, may be found in our morning industry news.

Legendary pin-up model Betty Page died today at age of 85 from complications of a recent heart attack. If you're like me you're pretty shocked by the news that Betty Page was still alive.
EW's list of supposed hot scripts dropped yesterday. Number 9 is I'm With Cancer, written by Will Reiser. Will is a friend, so I've read the script numerous times, and I can confidently say that EW's description of the project as "The 40 Year Old Virgin with Chemo is total bullshit." It's WAY better than that.
From HOLY TACO. America needs more raps by British dudes about awesome movies from the 80's. Finally, someone has stepped up. I want to see Robocop narrated in rhymes ASAP.
I really don't like live theatre. It rubs me the wrong way. It could be that I just haven't seen enough good plays. It might be because I've spent time around so many actors that defend theatre while they give each other HJ's and say how brilliant they were in their last performance. I will, however, be watching when HBO airs this special presentation of Will Ferrell's Broadway show "You're Welcome America. A Final Night With George W. Bush." No word yet on the date.

You've got a few options tonight. They are based on if you are watching TV with a woman next to you. If the answer is yes, then stick with a Christmas episode of House MD and a Nightline interview of Laura and Barbara Bush (she's the well behaved Bush daughter). If the answer is no, then go for the AMC salute to Mr. Bad Ass Motherfucker, Samuel L. Jackson.

The genius of Tropic Thunder is that the possibilities for jokes are basically endless. They created this bizarre meta comedy that broke through the Third Wall. And Awards season only offers even more outlets for spoofing the Hollywood machine– a machine that ramps up the pretentious seriousness about this time of year.

Im going to go ahead and name this one Crouching Tiger Hidden Curry. It's hard to tell what the crap is going on with it. It looks like one part Bollywood dance off, one part Chinese Kung Fu. But staring Borat. And released by Warner Brothers. Usually I hate anything Bollywood, but this one looks genre-bending enough to merit a look.
Ok, neither of these are exactly dude movies. But we have to give credit where credit is due. It's kind of a great idea to think of Revolutionary Road as a 2 hour alternative ending to Titanic.

There is a 99% chance that you will never see this movie. It’s a foreign film and will probably only play in NY and LA for half a week, even after it wins some unpronounceable award at Cannes. We can at least enjoy this clip, which is super intense.
Ah, the hallowed “magic number.” Dudes inflate it, chicks always leave a lot out, and now Anna Faris is making a movie about it. According to Hollywood reporter "Lady" centers on a woman who goes on a trek through her sexual past in an effort to find Mr.
