‘New Moon’ Actress Anna Kendrick

Thursday, November 19 by

Anna Kendrick is just so damn adorable. She's also a natural born actress. She was great in the movie Rocket Science as a fast talking master debater, I'm sure she's great in New Moon (I'll ask some tween), and she's already getting major buzz for her role opposite The Clooney in Up in the Air. A word from Anna: "I'm a big dork."Adorable!Check out more ADORABLE pics after the jump.

Create A ‘Simpsons’ Character Contest Yields A New Character

Thursday, November 19 by

In celebration of the 20th season of The Simpsons, a contest was held to create a new character. The winner of the 25,000+ received entries is 52 year-old Peggy Black of Orange, CT. Her character, Ricardo Bomba (pictured below), is a handsome, smooth-talking, hot-blooded lothario who's set to liquify the town's panties on the January 31st episode."Rrrri-carrr-do Bomba," Black said when describing the character, extravagantly rolling the "R's" in Spanish-language fashion. She then added, "You look mah-velous!!!" Soon after, her spinning bowtie went awry and cut her chin up pretty badly. (Yahoo)

T.J. Miller Auditions for ‘Yogi Bear’

Thursday, November 19 by

What better way to win the role of Ranger Jones in the Yogi Bear movie than to audition with a bear? That's exactly what comedian T.J. Miller decided to do after auditioning twice and still feeling like he needed that extra something to rise to the top of the pack. Actually, T.J. made the video with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts as a joke, but it got into the hands of Barry M. Meyer, chairman of Warner Bros., who enjoyed it while most likely chortling loudly through a thick cloud of cigar smoke. I just figure that's the only way studio moguls watch anything. T.J. will leave for New Zealand tomorrow to begin shooting. Doesn't leave much time for the method approach to acting… (TheApiary)

Will Ferrell Is Highly Overpaid

Thursday, November 19 by

Recently I reported that Forbes had crowned Simon Cowell the highest paid man on television. Now they've released a more pithy list and Will Ferrell sits at the top. Ferrell has been cited as the most overpaid actor in Hollywood based off the financial returns of his movies. This is of course due to flops like Land of the Lost and Semi Pro. An outraged Sean Penn commented, "Will Ferrell is one of our finest actors… who is willing to drop trow for laughs."Second on the list is Ewan McGregor, which is really hard to believe. Think about all the money that the Star Wars movies raked in. Not to mention Angels and Demons, Robots, Black Hawk Down, and Big Fish. Did The Island really do THAT poorly? (Forbes)

Chinese ‘Blood Simple’ Remake Crazier Than Anything Werner Herzog Has Ever Done

Wednesday, November 18 by

We told you in July about Zhang Yimou's plan to remake Blood Simple. And in record time we have a trailer for the House of Flying Daggers director's take on the Coen Brother's classic. It seems like something may have been lost in translation.

Looks cuckoo-bananas to us Americans but this is business as usual for Asian audiences. To make matters far crazier, Yahoo also reports that this version will include 100% more rap than the original. They are reporting that Yimou himself has written a rap theme for the film and that he recently performed it on Chinese state television. So, an accomplished filmmaker has diverted from his career path to pursue rap at the risk of embarassing himself. Tread carefully Zhang Yimou. You don't want Joaquin Pheonix getting in your ass.

Kevin Smith Can’t Get Away with ‘Dick’

Wednesday, November 18 by

Censorship has struck again, and not even Kevin Smith can wield his mighty sword to defeat it. The TV networks are prudes and don't like dirty words in their adveeeertissments (I wrote it like a proper British person would say it), so Smith's new comedy is changing "Dicks" to "Cops" for a title of A Couple of Cops, and the result is not double-entendre-y.This is disappointing because the new title doesn't make me giggle, it makes me drool. Maybe it's because I sometimes stick my pen too far up my nose, or it could be that it's so boring my brain seizes up in an effort to comprehend such a generic transformation. Hey, all you old people watching NCIS! You gonna have a heart attack if you see "Dicks" come up on screen? No, the WORD! Ahhhh, I can't talk to you people. (CinemaBlend) 

‘New Moon’ Actress Nikki Reed

Wednesday, November 18 by

Nikki Reed wrote the screenplay for the movie Thirteen at fifteen. It would have been more impressive if she would have written it at thirteen, but whatever. I guuuuess it's still quite an accomplishment. Now Nikki is reprising her role of Rosalie in New Moon. At 21 years of age. A word from Nikki: "I had hoped that girls all over the world would relate to Thirteen." I'm sure all the slutty, druggy ones did. Courtney Love probably balled while watching that movie. Balled right into her mound of cocaine.  The pics after the jump will have you doing the opposite of balling.

Justin Theroux To Rewrite ‘Space Invaders’

Wednesday, November 18 by

Based off Hollywood's new obsession with optioning everything that has ever existed, I automatically assumed that the classic video game Space Invaders was making its way to the big screen. Thankfully I made an ass out of "me" and "umption." Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 scribe Justin Theroux has been brought onboard to rewrite and possibly direct the Will Arnett-vehicle Space Invader. The movie tells the story of a space shuttle janitor who flies to the International Space Station to cock-block a hunky astronaut who has designs on his astronaut girlfriend.Never thought I'd see the day that I was thankful for a Harland Williams retread but with standards as low as they are these days, beggars can't be choosers.

J.J. Abrams Will Not Direct ‘Mission: Impossible IV’

Wednesday, November 18 by

Paramount Home Entertainment put on a huge bash at L.A.'s Griffith Observatory to celebrate the release of Star Trek on DVD and Blu-ray and Screen Junkies caught up with J.J. Abrams on the black carpet. When asked if he would return for another impossible mission with Tom Cruise, Abrams indicated that he will serve as producer but has another film he's helming that will interfere with him directing another Mission: Impossible.“The one I’m directing hopefully next year, I’m just in the early stages of that or middle of that, which is probably going to preclude my availability for doing Mission,” Abrams said. “Although I so love what the script is, what the story is. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are writing a script and they’re doing an amazing job so I’m already sort of envious of whoever ends up directing that movie.”Don't feel too bad J.J.. I'm sure there are people out there that are jealous of Felicity. Somewhere.

Jeff Bridges Rides The Dusty Trail to Oscar Bait In ‘Crazy Heart’

Tuesday, November 17 by

Jeff Bridges may soon be able to wipe away the stigma of "Four Time Academy Award NOMINEE" from his title and add the coveted "Academy Award Winner." The trailer for Crazy Heart gives him a role as strong as Mickey Rourke's in The Wrestler, but replaces bright spandex with a good 'ol fashioned gee-tar. The Dude plays Bad Blake, a broke down country music singer looking to find salvation with the help of a journalist (instead of stripper this time) played by I-look-like-a-sad-turtle Maggie Gyllenhaal. As Blake and the turtle struggle down the road of redemption, they learn profound things about  each other and themselves, and it changes their perception of the future. Basically.Check out the trailer after the jump.
