Auto-Tuned ‘$#*! My Dad Says’ Makes Breakfast Funky

Sunday, October 10 by

Why someone decided to take last week's episode of "$#*! of my Dad Says" and auto-tune it I have no idea. SidTheBillyGoat posted this video on his YouTube page and now I can't get the damn song out of my head. With those Blue Blockers on, Shatner looks freakishly like Biggie Smalls. Enjoy the video while you eat your pancakes and turkey bacon this morning. HOLLA!

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Won’t Start Its Engine Until at Least Early 2012

Saturday, October 9 by

Yay, more Mad Max: Fury Road delay news. Just the other day we reported that Charlize Theron might shed her arm for the film, and now it seems production isn't anticipated to begin until February 2012. But how will I quench my insatiable Charlize amputee fetish?!
George Miller is having worse luck with Mad Max than Terry Gilliam is with bringing a Don Quixote story to the screen. Some powerful force does not want these projects seen by the world. I'm aware of the curse on adapting Quixote, but the troubles with Mad Max's production are perplexing. All I can guess is that somewhere Mel Gibson is surrounded by candles and lamb's blood uttering satanic prayers over a picture of Tom Hardy. (/Film)

‘The Dilemma’ In Hot Water For Pointing Out Gayness Of Electric Cars

Friday, October 8 by

SOMEBODY GOT TOLD.
Like all great vanguards, Vince Vaughn has come under fire for his radical views. The funniest part of the unfunny trailer for The Dilemma features Vaughn addressing a room with the line, "Electric cars… are gay," and now, a month later, controversy has sparked.
Rumored electric car lover Anderson Cooper went on "Ellen" and flagged the line as offensive. "I was shocked that not only they put it in the movie," Cooper told DeGeneres. "But that they thought that it was okay to put that in a preview for the movie to get people to go and see it." Just like the trailer for Vaughn's Couple's Retreat, the offensive material will be removed. Not to defend Vaughn's fictional choice of words, but I have to agree he has a point. A car you plug into the wall? C'mon. (Deadline)

David Mamet Hires Al Pacino To Play Phil Spector In Best Idea For A Biopic Ever

Friday, October 8 by

"Say 'hallo,' to my giant hair!!!"
I hope you're ready to see Al Pacino attempt to act dramatically while wearing a potpourri of silly lady-wigs, because that's what HBO is going to give us. The NY Times reports that Pacino will rant and scream his way through a portrayal of legendary music producer/firearms enthusiast Phil Spector for an HBO biopic written and directed by David Mamet.
This is awesome. Spector is best known lately for his ability to produce dead actresses, rather than his acclaimed music production, but he's lead an intriguing life that not many know about. For instance, his unauthorized biography highlights the time he took a romantic interest in a young La Toya Jackson. He invited her over and she left running and crying through the Hollywood Hills not too long after. Nobody knows what went on in the house. I mean, c'mon. What HASN'T a Jackson seen? If Mamet can crack that nut, we're in for an interesting story.

Muggle Alert! ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1′ Won’t Be Released In 3D!

Friday, October 8 by

"Say what?!"
Warner Bros. has scrapped plans to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 in 3D. Break some hearts, THR:
"When the film arrives in theaters on Nov. 19, it will be in 2D, playing both conventional theaters and IMAX, but that "we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone's best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey."
Good riddance. If the film was going to have Clash of the Titans craptastic post 3D then keep that mofo in the second dimension. Releasing Part 2 in 3D will make it all that more memorable and dare I say…special. However Warner Bros, I suggest you reenforce your studio gates. Some irritated muggles might be storming them at any moment.

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Actress Daniela Ruah

Friday, October 8 by

A Boston native and graduate of the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, Daniela Ruah is one tough and rough actress who can take on any method. No wonder she is a regular on the series "NCIS: Los Angeles" with LL Cool J and Chris O'Donnell, giving them acting tips on how to re-live each episode as if it was a horrible memory from their childhood.
A word from Daniela: "I’ve been introduced to new skills that I didn’t have and which now I love having and want to continue developing, like shooting and using weapons and the appropriate protocols of gun fighting."

Alice Eve Locked In ‘ATM’

Friday, October 8 by

Our fears that Alice Eve would never land another movie role again have been waylaid. She's actually starring in the confined space thriller ATM. Originally, it was reported that Adventureland's Margarita Levieva was playing the role but now that appears to have been misinformation. Either that or Margarita suffers from claustrophobia, or co-star Josh Peck. Sounds plausible. He was a child actor after all.
ATM is filming now in Winnipeg with David Brooks directing from a script by Buried's Chris Sparling. ATM's plot came to be when Buried producer Peter Safran essentially asked Sparling, "Hey. Wanna milk this contained thriller sh*t?" Sparling's response, of course, was a resounding "F**k yeah!" (via The Playlist)

Watch Betty White Explain ‘Inception’ (Video)

Friday, October 8 by

Normally, I don't like to put funny video clips in my posts. After all, I'm a writer. It should be my words that kind-of-sort-of make you laugh, not some Youtube clip.

But when it comes to Betty White, I make an exception. First of all, the Internet loves her. Second, the internet loves Inception, and in this clip from "Community," that's what she's talking about. Third, and most importantly, I can't write because last night I mixed beer, wine and whiskey like some brain-dead freshman sorority girl. But unlike her, I knew all the guys who were hitting on me were lying, I just didn't care. (Vulture)

Shia LaBeouf Might Play Karl Rove for Some Reason

Friday, October 8 by

I knew it was only a matter of time before The Social Network inspired a copycat film. But I hardly expected said film to be a biopic on Karl Rove with Shia LeBeouf playing the Republican strategist. But like Costco on Acid, Hollywood can be a very strange place.
In the wake of The Social Network's success, the L.A. Times brings word that the new hot biopic circulating in Hollywood is the Wes Jones script for College Republicans, a dramedy about Karl Rove's college bid to become chief campus conservative under the tutelage of Lee Atwater. Among the many young hotties vying to play Rove (only in Hollywood!) is Shia LaBeouf…
Now that I think about it, I can totaly see why this might come together. A lot of people seem to hate Karl Rove, a lot of people seem to hate Shia LeBeouf, and I always have to pretend I know who they both are so I don't look stupid. It's the perfect fit. (Vulture)
