Late Night Disses NBC Big Time

Wednesday, January 13 by

Last night, late night television had a rip roaring good time ripping NBC a new asshole. Everyone is pretty amped up over the whole O'Brien/Leno debacle, and the hosts presented a unified front by expressing their disdain for the floundering network in their own special ways. David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Craig Ferguson, and even Conan himself didn't hold back. I've posted a couple of my favorite clips below from last night's roast of NBC. The first one shows Conan playing a game of Deal or No Deal with Howie Mandel in an effort to decide his future. The second is Jimmy Kimmel's monologue, where he decided to impersonate a certain big-chined "funny"man.

Nathan Fillion Joins Rainn Wilson in ‘Super’

Tuesday, January 12 by

  James Gunn is going to break the Internet if he keeps casting so many geek-friendly actors in his upcoming Super. The superhero dark comedy stars Rainn Wilson as a man who up and decides to be a superhero after his wife leaves him despite his lack of powers. LOTR's Liv Tyler is the wife who leaves his ass for Kevin Bacon's charming drug dealer. Now, Nathan Fillion (Dr. Horrible), Ellen Page (Inception), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), Michael Rooker (Mallrats), Andre Royo (The Wire), Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls), and Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program) are all aboard the project. The nerdgasmic film is currently filming in Louisiana with no confirmed release date. Rest assured, whatever opening day is decided upon will be the day that me and the other cool kids go rob the nerd houses. Those Star Wars figures will be mine! (GeekWeek)

Conan O’Brien Gives NBC Two Big Middle Fingers. Bring on FOX!

Tuesday, January 12 by

And the fires from Heaven will rain down upon them, and only your chin will survive! Conan O'Brien is mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore. The current Tonight Show host has released a statement telling NBC they can go suck it, in so many words. He refuses to host the Tonight Show after Jay Leno, as he believes shifting timeslots would compromise the integrity of what he considers the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. It was NBC's plan to put Leno on at 11:35PM, followed by Conan at 12:05PM, but now that Conan is threatening to break his contract, the PeaCOCK is going to have to think again. FOX has made it more than clear that they think Conan would be a perfect fit at their prosperous network. No formal offers have been made yet, but inside sources say one is extremely likely in the near future. I imagine now that Conan has told NBC what's what, FOX is gathering its gaggle of lawyers together as I type this.Check out Conan's press release in its entirety after the jump.

‘Transformers 3′ on Track to Rape Your Senses Next Summer

Tuesday, January 12 by

It seems Michael Bay took time off from redefining evolution to prep his next film Transformers 3, which is set to begin filming in May. You might say, "Isn't that an awfully quick prep time for a movie of such magnitude," and I would respond, "Yeah, dude, now quit tugging at my sleeve." My guess is that the "creative team" is working off of a picture that Bay took of his bowl of Alpha-Bits Cereal. You never know what kind of fascinating stories you're going to find floating a top a silky sea of milk. Bay's breakfast spelled out, "Explosion robot sweat cleavage," and he was off to the races.  We'll find out if Transformers 3 sucks as much as its last predecessor July 1, 2011.

‘Youth in Revolt’ Actress Ari Graynor

Tuesday, January 12 by

You may remember Ari Graynor as the girl in Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist who takes the chewing gum out of the toilet full of her own puke. I bet it tasted like that movie played…A word from Ari: "I do not have an athletic bone in my body."There's no way your body needs to be playing sports. Keep it safe, unbruised, and unbroken. We don't need anymore Owen Wilson noses up on the silver screen.Check out more pics of Ari's tip-top body after the jump.

‘Sherlock Holmes’ Sequel to Milk the Teet of Success this June

Tuesday, January 12 by

Or are they???When you're a bro as in demand as Robert Downey Jr., bromances come and bromances go. And Jon Favreau needs to understand that.News has broken that Downey Jr. has dropped out of Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens in favor of broin' out with Jude Law on the set of the Sherlock Holmes sequel. The success of the first Sherlock Holmes has prompted Warner Brothers to fast-track the sequel and put it before cameras this June, which is exactly the same time that Cowboys & Aliens is planning to begin principal photography.It looks like this was strictly a business decision and Favreau should not take Downey's broparture to heart. I'm sure he'll find another bro who's brotastic enough for the part. That Matthew McConaughey seems nice. Just talk it over with Vince Vaughn. He's always there for a bro in need. (EW)

Road to the Oscars: ‘Avatar’

Ridley Scott’s ‘Robin Hood’ Restricted to 2D

Tuesday, January 12 by

In the wake of Avatar crushing so much ass at the box office, everyone wants to get into the 3D game. But now I have bummerific news for those who were hoping to have Russell Crowe's love handles looming out at their faces when Robin Hood comes to theaters. Previous reports that Ridley Scott had requested an additional $8 million to convert his re-telling to 3D have been denied by the studio. That's a decision that I can get behind. 3D is cool in small doses but it is ultimately an unnecessary gimmick. To the best of my knowledge, the following phrase has never been said: "Seven Samurai was really good but there just weren't enough swords poking out of the screen for my taste. Jeers to the filmmakers! Hiss! Hiss!!" (First Showing)

Sony Puts a Chalk Outline Around ‘Spider-Man 4′

Monday, January 11 by

Spider-Man 4 is deader than dead. Sam Raimi & Tobey Maguire and Sony have decided to part ways on the project after being unable to agree that John Malkovich would look totally awesome in a vulture costume, among other creative differences. Sony has decided to reboot the franchise completely, working from a script by Jamie Vanderbilt that places Peter Parker back in high school where he'll have to deal with sexual and arachnid hormones simultaneously. You can read the full Sony press release at Deadline Hollywood, but allow me to sum it up for you: "Ass-kissing, ass-kissing, ass-kissing. We're sorry this couldn't work. We wish only the best. Everyone is fantastic. (F*ck everyone). Ass-kissing, ass-kissing."The Spider-Man reboot is expected to hit theaters in Summer 2012.In the meantime, click on these links.50 Things Made Better with Bacon (HolyTaco)Mark McGwire Confesses to Steroids Use.
