Lizzy Caplan To Sleep With A Bunch Of Losers In ‘I Don’t Care About Your Band’

Friday, July 30 by

Lizzy Caplan is returning to the world of underrated cable comedy. Deadline reports that she's teaming up with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to develop the dating disaster memoir "I Don't Care About Your Band" into a comedy series for HBO.
Based on the sh*tty dating experiences of comedienne Julie Klausner, "I Don't Care About Your Band" will star Caplan as a young woman who dates man-boys perpetually. Whether they be hacky improv comedians or callow would-be rockstars. What that means is we'll most likely see Caplan wrapped in dinosaur-print bedsheets while asking, "Where is this relationship headed?"

Get Low

Friday, July 30 by

Director: Aaron Schneider

First Look At Andy Serkis In ‘Rise Of The Apes’

Friday, July 30 by

Little-known Hollywood funfact: Andy Serkis is 3-feet tall.
The first set pic from Rise Of The Apes has made its way online showing James Franco and Freida Pinto walking along with Andy Serkis. Not entirely certain what is going on in this scene, but it seems that James Franco's character is trying to impress Pinto by taking his helmet-wearing brother to Chuck E. Cheese. Just kidding. Of course this is Serkis in a mo-cap suit for his performance as the chimp Caesar in the upcoming film. It really does look like a still from Rain Man or "How's Your News?" though. (JustJared)

Stallone Says Rambo Prequel “Worth Pondering”

Friday, July 30 by

While Sylvester Stallone may have ruled out Rambo V, he certainly hasn't ruled out another film involving the iconic character. In an interview with Empire, Stallone left the door for a prequel wide open.
"I certainly think this is worth pondering," was his response. "It's intriguing to find the whys and wherefores of how peope have become what they are. The traumas, the loss and the tragedy of being in Vietnam would certainly be a great challenge for a young actor, and it would be ironic that Rambo directs younger Rambo having played it for twenty years plus…"
I, for one, would love to see Rambo's backstory developed into a feature-length film. But in order to get people interested, there has to be a twist. For example, what if Rambo's psychotic tendencies stemmed not from his service in Vietnam, but rather from an ill-fated childhood field-trip to J. Edger Hoovers' office?

Booty and the Beast: Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler to Join ‘American Idol’?

Friday, July 30 by

Jennifer Lopez…in happier times.
With the departure of Ellen Degeneres from "American Idol," Fox has some big, sensible shoes to fill. And it looks like they'll be filling those shoes with Jennifer Lopez's giant ass.
Deadline is reporting that Lopez signed a secret deal to replace Degeneres sometime last week. However, producers are still looking for a replacement for Simon Cowell. Rumor has it that the reanimated corpse of Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler is the frontrunner. As you probably remember, Tyler killed himself after recording "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" for the Armaggedon soundtrack back in 1998.
Personally, I think the two are a perfect fit. Lopez will bring back the washed-up singer vibe perfected by Paula Abdul, and Tyler's beastly face will allow viewers to snicker and crack jokes, helping to fill the meanness void that will result from Cowell's departure.

Jimmy Fallon Sued For Being Too Straight

Thursday, July 29 by

A former stage manager on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" is suing the show and host for sexual discrimination. But not the sexy Bill O'Reilly kind. The other kind where Fallon didn't want to be groped by men. What a jerk he is.
Paul Tarascio of Oradell has filed the complaint with the U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission and the New York Division of Human Rights. He claims he got demoted and then fired from his job on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” because, he was told, “Jimmy just prefers to take direction from a woman,” his lawyer tells us. The complaint also alleges that Fallon wanted only female technicians to place microphones on him, and only after a succession of women weren’t up to the task, he allowed a man, someone he’d worked with previously, to do the job.
When reached for comment, Fallon tried to tell a joke but giggled uncontrollably and nervously played with his hair. That's what we get for hiring Horatio Sanz as our field reporter. (Warming Glow)

Vince Vaughn, David O. Russell Could Move to ‘Old St. Louis’

Thursday, July 29 by

Vince Vaughn and David O. Russell have been gabbing for weeks about their Old St. Louis project, and now it looks like Universal will let them play in their sandbox. O. Russell wrote the script and would make the film his followup to The Fighter. Deadline reports:
Old St. Louis is the story of a traveling salesman who has been an absentee father, and how his life changes when his daughter becomes part of his life. Vaughn would play the salesman, and actresses including Kick-Ass star Chloe Moretz have been mentioned as possibles to play the daughter.
Being a native of St. Louis, I'm a little put off that the fine city and Gateway to the West isn't mentioned in the logline. Hopefully during the character's travels he gets stranded in STL, forcing production to shoot mostly there for authenticity's sake. Lord knows they could use the money for another strip mall built around an Olive Garden.

Len Wiseman In Talks To Direct ‘Total Recall’ Remake

Thursday, July 29 by

"I get no respect. No respect."
Columbia Pictures is in final negotiations with Len Wiseman to have him direct a new version of Total Recall. The original Arnold Schwarzenegger blockbuster was based on a Philip K. Dick and introduced mainstream audiences to the notion of triple-breasted women, a spectacle you would normally need to travel to the Soviet Union to see.
Len Wiseman handles action really well as evidenced by Bruce Willis surfing on a jet in Live Free Or Die Hard, and high-octane pilot for the new "Hawaii Five-O". His contributions to Dick's story should be visually thrilling if nothing else. From Wiseman:
“I’ve always been fascinated with Philip K. Dick’s short story, and I’m excited at that prospect of diving even deeper into the type of world it evokes and the questions it asks. I love that the most crucial mystery our character is trying to solve is the one of his own soul.”
Pfft. Whatever, hippie. Just tell us when Kate Beckinsale will put on a third breast and Gerard Butler gets his ass to Mars.

‘The Unknowns’ Actress Monica Olsen

Thursday, July 29 by

Monica Olsen may not be a household name yet, but that's probably because your prude wife is intimidated by her. She may be 'Brett Ratnerfied' with his upcoming The Unknowns project, which means we could be seeing her hot, if somewhat extremely enhanced boobs, on the big screen in the near future.
A word from Monica: "I like guns… I think every women should know how to use one."
I'm not going to lie. If you were holding a gun in any of your spreads I would totally, totally enjoy that. With oil all over you too, of course.
More pics of Monica and her gun rack after the jump…

‘I Melt With You’ Sounds Interesting Now Thanks to Sasha Grey

Thursday, July 29 by

We haven't really been covering Mark Pellington's indie drama I Melt With You because it didn't have any porn stars attached. Suddenly, the project sounds a lot more interesting with the addition of Sasha Grey. The porn star has enjoyed a career reinvention recently and is building up an impressive resume by picking up roles that don't require her to spit on her hand.
I Melt With You stars non-porn actors Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, and Rob Lowe as friends who feel empty inside and decide to resurrect a pact from their college days. Grey will play "a free spirit who helps one of the men realize that nirvana can only be achieved by death." And deep-throating. Tons and tons of deep-throating. (THR)
