Scarlett Johansson and Blake Lively Sparring It Out For ‘Gravity’ Lead

Wednesday, August 11 by

It was rumored last week that Blake Lively was making a play for the role of sexy astronaut in Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. However, it's been expected that role was Scarlett Johansson's for the taking. Well, now it's official that both ladies are pushing for the part, with reports that they both have tested for the role.
Will this create a rift between the two? Will that rift involve wrestling?? Hopefully. We'll let you know if and when Pay-Per-View tickets for the event go on sale. Gravity is said to be a really ambitious, experimental film that would require a lot from whichever actress lands the part. Neither Johansson or Lively have carried a film of this magnitude to date, but both are ready to step up. Personally, I'm really torn. Either would be super-convincing as an astronaut. (THR)

‘The Hangover’ Funded Mike Tyson’s Drug Habit

Wednesday, August 11 by

The Playlist has alerted us to an interview with Mike Tyson that is as candid as you'd expect from the man who once threatened to "f*ck you until you love him." It all came about when Mike wandered into a Las Vegas radio station unexpectedly after a trip to the dentist. If you're familiar with David After The Dentist, you know that you're in for a treat. Here are some of my favorite parts.
On The Hangover:
“I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I’m sorry I’m coming at you guys like this… I said, ‘Wow, This is going to be really good. We’re going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.’ This is my best thinking on drugs… It wasn’t that way. It was an international success."
On becoming a Vegan:
“I became a Vegan. Vegan is where no animal products. No livestock products. Nothing."
On his slow-transformation to vampirism:
"My personal life is so isolated right now. I don’t go anywhere unless I’m invited." (except for when he wanders into radio stations of course. – Ed.)
And on the arduous task of wiping one's butt when weighing 350 lbs:
“It was hard to wipe my butt… I was sweating like some kind of guy from a moon project or something."
Awesome. MTV needs to find a way to get him into the "Jersey Shore" house. (ESPN Radio)

Britney Spears to Guest Star on ‘Glee’

Wednesday, August 11 by

Good news for anyone who likes washed-up pop stars! Britney Spears is going to appear on "Glee", according to the show's creator Ryan Murphy.

Instead of having a drunken Spears ram her car into the glee club's bus or attempt to buy drugs off of one of the students, the show decided to take the high road by having most of Britney's scenes take place in a dream sequence.

After being put under in the dentist's chair, some of the characters from the show will "hallucinate about being like the singer." I can only assume that means they will dream about forgetting to feed their children while drunkenly scouring the house for that last free sample of Valtrex. (Coming Soon)

Helen Mirren and Russell Brand Give ‘Arthur’ a Happy Ending

Wednesday, August 11 by

Who says Hollywood is out of ideas? Obviously they haven't seen this picture of Helen Mirren giving Russell Brand the old "rub & tug" on the set of Arthur. In fact, seeing a geriatric Mirren giving Brand a bathtub HJ is the most original thing I've seen in weeks, and mind you, I watch Bravo daily.

The only question is how is Hollywood going to top this? Chances are we'll see Betty White giving an "Asian massage" to the wolf-boy from Twilight sometime soon. "Team Jacob" indeed! (Cinema Blend)

Conan O’Brien’s ‘Flying Circus’ Promo for TBS

Wednesday, August 11 by

Promos for Conan O'Brien's new show are now airing on TBS, and for hardcore comedy dorks, things are looking up. That's because the ad is very reminiscent of "Monty Python's Flying Circus," specifically, the animated shorts of director Terry Gilliam.

Whether or not the style was intentional is irrelevant. The result is the same either way. Monty Python fans are with Coco. Although that was probably true before the ad, as well. (Cinema Blend)

Fooled ya! This clip from MTV's "Undressed" features a Christina Hendricks circa 1999, but she doesn't get naked. Still, it's Christina Hendricks at age 24. Niiiiiiiiice. (BuzzFeed)

‘Skyline’ Teaser Trailer Redefines Abduction

Tuesday, August 10 by

These new aliens are really efficient.
Universal has released the trailer for Skyline. It stars Donald Faison from "Scrubs," Eric Balfour from "24," and Brittany Daniel from Club Dread. The film is about aliens abducting Los Angelenos, not unlike almost every other alien movie before it. However, I do enjoy the mass human collection, even if it makes zero sense logically. The aliens are just going to have a bunch of concussed people stumbling around their ship throwing up in the hallways.
Skyline invades theaters November 12, 2010.

Adrien Brody To Have Hard Time Matching Christina Hendricks’s Eye-Line In ‘Detached’

Tuesday, August 10 by

Eyes up, Brody!
Adrien Brody has signed on for cuckoo bird director Tony Kaye's Detached. Brody will star as a substitute teacher who becomes attached to a teenage prostitute while working at a troubled school. He later gets in trouble when he shows a gay film in class in an attempt to teach tolerance. I'm going out on a limb here and guessing it was Victor Salva's Clownhouse.
Christina Hendricks also stars as a teacher and potential love interest who encourages Brody's sub to go full-time. Brody has proven talented in a number of complex roles but this may be his greatest challenge yet. Can you imagine trying not to look at Christina Hendricks's boobs all day, every day? That's a test of endurance even David Blaine wouldn't be able to pass. (The Playlist)

Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman Take Over Atlanta News Station

Tuesday, August 10 by

It seems a little convenient that Michael Cera and Jason Schwartzman have a movie coming out this weekend and they just so happen to be reporting the weather on Atlanta's Fox 5 News. Unless this whole thing was an ingenius plan… The two actors, in an effort to promote Scott Pilgrim vs. the World screw around for two minutes in front of an animated green screen. The best part comes right in the beginning when Cera is trampled by a poorly rendered school bus. What would make the clip even better is if the local morning news anchors would shut the hell up. Let the comedians be funny, news anchors. The producer will let you know when there's an update on those human remains found at the Carvels.

Danny McBride and Rhys Darby Tapped To Join ‘The Office’

Tuesday, August 10 by

Everyone's curious what will become of "The Office" after this season, once Steve Carell packs his assorted chochkies and potted plant into a banker's box and is forcefully removed from the Scranton Sabre branch. A replacement has yet to be named but sources say that both of the slobs pictured above have been contacted about joining the cast.
Showrunner Paul Lieberstein confirms that Rhys Darby ("Flight of the Conchords") and Danny McBride (every comedy) are having conversations about coming aboard in the role of a new salesman. It's not a done deal that the actor who takes this role will take over as boss. That job could easily go to a current castmember. Sound off in the 'comments' section to let us know who you think would make the best dipsh*t boss. (EW)

Daily Expendable: Mickey Rourke

Tuesday, August 10 by

 
Mickey Rourke is the most accomplished dramatist of the rock'em sock'em team in The Expendables. An 80s icon who after pulling off a series of great performances in Diner, Rumble Fish, The Pope Of Greenwich Village, Angel Heart, and Barfly fell off the map and didnt re-surface until 20 years later with his award winning performance in The Wrestler. Now he's back and kicking major acting chop ass. Just remember don't get between him and his chihuahuas or they'll be hell to pay.
Highly Debatable Best Role: Henry Chinaski in Barfly

Weird Fact: Walked off the set of a movie because the producers wouldn't let him use his pet chihuahua.

‘Enter the Void’ Trailer Is Like Whoa

Tuesday, August 10 by

It's an indie movie, but don't be afraid. Just melt into the bright colors and everything will be–AHHH SPACEBUG!!!
I present to you the trailer for Gaspar Noe's trippy thriller Enter the Void. It's chock-full of drugs, sex, violence, and sex all swirling around the psychedelic Tokyo terrain. In the movie, "a drug dealer is killed by police but eschews a traditional afterlife in favor of floating around Tokyo in spirit form, watching over his sister." Or he's just really, REALLY high.
Enter the Void floats into theaters and On Demand September 24.

‘Scott Pilgrim VS. The World’ Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Tuesday, August 10 by

 
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the girl next door, gets a punk rock make over in this week in Scott Pilgram VS. The World. A distant cousin to sexy 1940s screen siren Ava Gardner, Mary has inhabited the female heroine roles in previous installments to the Die Hard and Final Destination franchises.
A word from Mary: "You have to believe that it is what you want to do with your life and you have to be dedicated to it."
Like being hot. She has fully committed herself to that challenge.
