Friday, September 17 by

Easy A is Can’t Buy Me Love for the Mean Girls generation. It knows it and it references that movie and other ‘80s classics, but Can’t Buy Me Love is…

‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ Massive Wand Battle Preview

Friday, September 17 by

There’s probably not much news about the Harry Potter films. If you’ve read the books, that’s probably going to be in the movie. But then, maybe you’re one of those who complain they didn’t film every single word of the book, so you want to manage your expectations. Well, Gemma Jones, who plays Madame Pomfrey, told us a little about the big magic battle in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II.

Anthony Hopkins Messed With Chris Hemsworth’s Head On ‘Thor’ Set

Friday, September 17 by

If a superhero is going to have a mentor, it should be someone major like Brando or The Dude. Sir Anthony Hopkins is another good one. Playing Odin in the big movie version of Thor, Sir Anthony enjoyed messing with beefy Chris Hemsworth.

“I’m glad I’m not young anymore because you see their insecurities and I always joke along with them,” Hopkins said while he was promoting the Woody Allen comedy You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. “I say things like, ‘Is that the way you’re going to play it?’ Chris and I got to know each other but he was looking nervous and I said, ‘Oh, is that the way you’re going to play it?’ He said, ‘Yeah, is it okay?’ I said, ‘Well, it’s your career.’’

Ben Stiller Gets The Chair For An Unpaid ‘Parking Ticket’

Friday, September 17 by

Never Let Me Go director Mark Romanek is setting up his future projects and hoping to work with Ben Stiller. The two have been talking about teaming for A Parking Ticket, a dark comedy about a father who decides to fight a parking ticket in order to teach his daughter about the judicial system. Of course, he ends up on death row.
No word yet on whether Stiller will tap into playing an angry character, a nebbish character, or a hip-hop spouting character in a fat suit. There will definitely be a scene with a dance-off, I'm sure. This IS a Ben Stiller movie we're talking about here. (Worst Previews)

Casey Affleck: Joaquin Phoenix Documentary Was Fake (Well Duh)

Friday, September 17 by

Breaking News: Casey Affleck has admitted that his Joaquin Phoenix documentary, I'm Still Here, is fake. Affleck followed that bombshell by admitting that he and Ben Affleck are brothers, and that he really likes Boston. He then went on to give the dumbest quote in the history of man (or in at least the past two days):
“I never intended to trick anybody…The idea of a quote, hoax, unquote, never entered my mind.”
Really, that's weird. Usually when I'm lying out my teeth while taking part in an elaborate hoax, it crosses my mind. Then again, I'm not the type of person who says "quote/unquote" out loud, so maybe I can't relate because I'm not a pretentious #sshole. Although I find that hard to believe, considering my love of A Prairie Home Companion…the radio show, of course, not the movie. (NYT via /Film)

Very Nice: Sacha Baron Cohen to Play Queen Front Man Freddie Mercury

Friday, September 17 by

Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on to play Queen front man Freddie Mercury in an upcoming biopic, Deadline is reporting. The film will be written by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), and will be financed by GK Films, in conjunction with several other companies including Queen Films, which is made up of the surviving members of Queen. Production will begin in 2011.

Will Cohen be able to pull off the flamboyantly gay showman that was Freddie Mercury? Considering his character of Brüno makes Mercury look like Pat Robinson, I'm assuming he'll do just fine. In fact, if my understanding of Mercury is accurate, it will be a lot like the Brüno movie, except instead of being Austrian he'll be British, and instead of having a happy ending he'll die of AIDS. Basically Brüno meets Philadelphia.

Shia LaBeouf Is An Immortal Shape Shifting Clone

Thursday, September 16 by

This video is basically saying that Jewish people share certain traits. I should know. I look like a combo of Shia, Adam Sandler, and Marty Feldman. (Buzzfeed)

Orlando Bloom Dressed Ridiculously On Set Of ‘Three Musketeers’ (PHOTOS)

Thursday, September 16 by

Uncanny.
JustJared snagged some snaps today from the set of What The Hell Is Orlando Bloom Doing? Here you can clearly see Orlando dressed like an asswipe along with Cristoph Waltz and Milla Jovovovovovovich. No photos yet of co-stars Logan Lerman, Mads Mikkelsen, Matthew Macfayden, Ray Stevenson, or Juno Temple, but I'm sure they look just as ridiculous. I'll keep you posted.

Jennifer Garner Signs On for ‘Better Living Through Chemistry’ and ‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green’

Thursday, September 16 by

Everyone wants a piece of that Jennifer Garner ass! Ahem, I mean talent. The in demand actress is in talks to star in Better Living Through Chemistry opposite Jeremy Renner, another actor who's grabbin' up roles. Garner has also signed on for The Odd Life of Timothy Green. Dolla dolla bills, ya'll. Gotta support those Affleck kids somehow. Vulture has the deets:
Better Living Through Chemistry is a dramatic thriller about a small-town pharmacist (Renner) stuck in a loveless marriage who embarks on an affair with a "trophy wife" (Garner). She introduces him to prescription drugs, as it goes, and that’s when “things spin out of control” as the pair begins to devise a scheme to off Garner’s husband.
The modern-day fable Timothy Green centers around a child-prodigy musician and his parents: Garner would play the mother, and we hear an offer is out to Mark Wahlberg to star opposite her as the dad, though he's expected to pass. (Vulture also hears that Joaquin Phoenix is on the "next step" of candidates to be offered the part if Wahlberg does say no.)
Peter Hedges (About a Boy) is signed on to direct the latter of the two films, and if Joaquin gets cast Hedges will have his hands full trying to keep the looney tunes actor away from the impressionable young talent. Number one rule on set is no matter what Joaquin tells you, he DOES NOT have the secrets to success. His lessons always end in pooping on someone's personal property.

Kevin Spacey Is The Super Lobbyist In ‘Casino Jack’ Trailer

Thursday, September 16 by

Spacey churns out another intense performance.
Kevin Spacey stars in George Hickenlooper's Casino Jack, the true life story of corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Co-starrring Barry Pepper and Kelly Preston, it looks like a fun, light-hearted approach to a story about a fat cat who laughed his way to the bank after robbing this country of millions of dollars. With house foreclosures up 25% since last August, that's exactly what audiences want to see nowadays, right? Why aren't you answering? And why are you sitting in your soon to be repoed car in a closed garage with the engine running? That's a waste of gas, silly-bean.

‘Mad Men’ Actress Christina Hendricks

Thursday, September 16 by

We're finally paying homage to your favorite buxom redhead Christina Hendricks. She makes Roger's heart flutter on "Mad Men" in pencil skirts that seem to be holding on for dear life at the seams. One disconcerting fact though. The curtains don't match the rug. Christina was born a blonde. We've been duped!
A word from Christina: "My boobs are real, and I'm proud to say that."
And I'm proud to hear that. Along with the rest of the male population.
More pics of Christina after the jump…
