Casting Shortlist for ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot

Thursday, May 27 by

Over the last few months, director Marc Webb has been quietly meeting with young men. To "discuss" a "role" "in" the Spider-Man "reboot." Riiiiiiiight.The casting shortlist for the coveted role of Peter Parker is Jamie Bell (Tin Tin, King Kong, Billy Elliot); Alden Ehrenreich – (Tetro); Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus); Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince); and Josh Hutcherson (Journey To The Center Of The Earth, Zathura).Early speculation has Hutcherson ahead of the pack but it really all comes down to how good they look when Sony forces them to choke back tears and take their shirts off. You boys wanna be stars, don't you? (THR)

Television Host Art Linkletter Dead at 97

Thursday, May 27 by

TV personality Art Linkletter has died at the age of 97.Linkletter, who began his career at CBS radio in the 1940s, became a mainstay of 1950s television, at one point hosting a show on all three networks. His credits include the orginal version of "Kids Say the Darndest Things" and "Art Linkletter's House Party", which I can only assume was the basis for the popular Kid 'n Play films of the same name.Word is that Linkletter died of natural causes, but I'll believe it when I see the autopsy report. They said the same thing about Bob Hope, and we all remember how that turned out.RIP, Art. (Variety)

‘Captain America’ Picks Up Tommy Lee Jones

Thursday, May 27 by

We're getting late word tonight that Captain America: The First Avenger has picked up actor Tommy Lee Jones. The pickup allegedly took place in the bathroom stall of a "superhero bar" where Captain America was trolling for actors.During a recent interview, Actress Hayley Atwell, who co-stars in the film, confirmed that Jones is on board with the project. Although his actual role has not been announced, experts (i.e. my 28-year-old cousin who still lives in my aunt's basement) speculate that Jones will star as General Chester Phillips, the officer who chooses Steve Rogers for the super soldier program. Dork-a-licious! (Coming Soon)

The New ‘Jonah Hex’ Trailer is a Tired Rehash of the Original

Wednesday, May 26 by

Megan Fox (Left) speaks with Edward James Olmos (Right) between takes.If the latest installment of the Jonah Hex trailer series is any indication, Hollywood is officially out of ideas.The original trailer, which premiered last month, told the story of the upcoming Jonah Hex movie staring Josh Brolin as the titular cowboy bounty hunter who straddles the world of the living and the dead. The trailer also featured Megan Fox and John Malkovich, and was cheered by fans and critics alike for its non-stop action and witty dialogue.Although the new trailer features the entire original cast, the sequel squanders any good will earned by the first installment. It is nothing more than a tired rehash of its predecessor, devoid of any original ideas whatsoever. Brolin, Fox and Malkovich should be ashamed to be associated with this transparent marketing ploy which seems to have the singular purpose of selling movie tickets to eager fanboys.Watch the pathetic new Jonah Hex trailer after the jump.

Carl Erik Rinsch to Tag Along with ‘Logan’s Run’

Wednesday, May 26 by

In this dystopian future society Cirque de Soleil is ALWAYS in town!Commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch, protege of Ridley Scott and all around badass visual artist, is stretching his legs for helming duties on Logan's Run for WB/Joel Silver. Rinsch was originally attached to the Alien prequel until Papa Ridley Bear decided to direct himself. In the meantime, he made an awesome short entitled The Gift for Philips that showcases his skillz, and basically proclaims, "Yeah, you should probably give me a sci-fi feature."Rinsch is currently in production on 47 Ronin, a movie where Keanu Reeves gets to pretend to be a samurai like Tom Cruise did, and he intends to move right to Logan's Run after. The plot of the 1976 film and 1967 novel involved a dystopian future society that controlled the population by killing everyone at age 30 (21 in the book). Those who try to escape their destiny are known as a “Runners”, and are hunted down by operatives known as Sandmen. The main character of the story is a Sandman named Logan who says hell no to losing the best years of his life and bolts. Being executed once you get to legal drinking age? Way to harsh a mellow, Government. (/Film)

50 Cent Will Get Thin Or Die Tryin’

Wednesday, May 26 by

The skeleton monster you see in the picture above is the fragile whisp that used to be 50 Cent. The rapper has dropped fitty pounds to play a cancer-stricken football player in the upcoming Things Fall Apart. The film, directed by Mario Van Peebles and written by 50 Cent tells the stor– what? I wouldn't drop $12 let alone a quarter of my body weight for a Mario Van Peebles / 50 Cent collabo.50 Cent lost a lot of weight for his upcoming movie 'Things Fall Apart.' In the movie 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer. He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks.That's weird. Russell Crowe's liquid diet didn't help him lose any weight. Then again, that liquid was cake batter. (This Is 50)

Friars Club to Roast Quentin Tarantino

Wednesday, May 26 by

How could you be mean to this punim?They've done it to Pam Anderson, they've done it to William Shatner, and now the time has come for Quentin Tarantino to endure their wrath. On October 1 at the New York Hilton, The Friars Club will exploit Tarantino's shortcomings and almost certainly mention the words "Badrock; Bazooka; Benzoylethylecgonine; Benzoylmethylecgonine; Bernice; Bernies; Beta-Cocain; Blast; Blizzard; Blow; Bouncing Powder; Bump; Burese; C" Carrie; Cabello; Candy; Carrie; Caviar; Cecil; Charlie; Chicken Scratch; Cholly; COC; Coca; Cocain; Cocaina; Cocaine Free Base; Cocaine, L-; Cocaine-M; Cocktail; Coke; Cola; Corine; D-pseudococaine; Dama Blanca; Delcaine; Depsococaine; Dextrocaine; Dust; Ecgonine, Methyl Ester, Benzoate; Eritroxilina; Erytroxylin; Flake; Flex; Florida Snow; Foo Foo; Freeze; G-Rock; Girl; Gold Dust; Goofball; Green Gold; Happy Dust; Happy Powder; Happy Trails; Heaven; Hell; Isocaine; Isococain; Isococaine; Jam; Kibbles N' Bits; Kokain; Kokan; Kokayeen; L-Cocain; L-Cocaine; Lady; Leaf; Line; Methyl Benzoylecgonine; Moonrocks; Neurocaine; None; Nose Candy; Pimp's Drug; Prime Time; Rock; Sleighride; Snort; Snow; Star Dust; Star-Spangled Powder; Sugar; Sweet Stuff; Toke; Toot; Trails; White Girl or Lady; Yeyo; Zip" during a good ol' fashioned roast. Comedy Central has aired the specials in the past, but hasn't yet signed on for Tarantino's jittery jamboree of insults.

Yep. Victoria’s Secret Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Will Replace Megan Fox’s Glistening Torso in ‘Transformers 3.’

Wednesday, May 26 by

This is what happens when you complain.Last week we pondered whether Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the Victoria's Secret model with zero acting credibility, would be selected to fill the Megan Fox-shaped hole in all of our Transformers 3 hearts. Today we have the answer: duh.Pending negotiations, Rosie will fill the role of semi-nude girl tinkering with a motor, and star opposite Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, and Tyrese Gibson. If she opts in, Rosie will be having her leg humped by either a miniature Decepticon or Shia LaBeouf within the next few weeks. (Deadline)

Christian Bale vs. Bear vs. Friends in ‘The Revenant’

Wednesday, May 26 by

John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is attached to direct The Revenant with Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, How to Berate a Cinematographer) in talks to star. Bale's character would be a 19th century frontiersman who is left to die by his friends after being mauled by a bear, and eventually sets out to take his revenge on them. Um, is it just me, or shouldn't he be taking his revenge out on the bear and its family? Sorry your friends didn't fight off a bear for you, dude. Chances are they quickly assessed the situation and came to the the conclusion that IT'S A BEAR. Now you're going to make them pay for using their God-given natural instincts? Whatever, this concept had me at "mauled by bear." (BloodyDisgusting)

15 Most Awkward Michael Scott Moments

Wednesday, May 26 by

One of the reasons "The Office" has remained so eminently watchable over the years is Steve Carell as the clueless Dunder-Mifflin boss Michael Scott. The actor, combined with a great script, just has a talent for wringing the most extremely painful awkwardness out of basically any situation. Making a list of the most awkward moments is like picking the most apple-y of apples. Awkwardness and Michael just go hand-in-hand – every single episode contains something that makes you cringe while laughing at how uncomfortable he can make people, but there are those memorable moments that stand out even amongst 115 episodes. And knowing that we only have one more season of Michael's hi-jinks to look forward to, it seems appropriate at the end of this past season to take a look back at all the most excruciatingly embarrassing ways the actor has made us laugh.

Julie Benz Returns For ‘Dexter’ Season Five

Wednesday, May 26 by

Welcome back.**SPOLER ALERT: DON'T READ FURTHER UNTIL YOU'VE WATCHED THE FOURTH SEASON OF 'DEXTER'**Turns out that Julie Benz will return for the new season of "Dexter." Aussiello got the scoop that Benz will reprise her role in the season premiere despite the fact that Rita's blood is now on the outside of her. Though everyone's being tight-lipped about how she will return.As she told us a few months back, Sara Colleton reaffirmed that Rita won't be brought back as a ghost a la Dexter's father, “We reserve those for Harry. If you have too many things like that it becomes gimmicky.”I hear what she's saying. It's like when "RoboCop: The Series" introduced that hologram-ghost as a recurring character. Totally pulled me out of the tightly-woven narrative.
