‘House’ Actress Jennifer Morrison

Monday, September 21 by

You may remember Jennifer Morrison from the two minutes she spent playing Captain Kirk's mommy in this past Summer's (today's the first day of Fall!) little indie Star Trek.  If you happened to miss her birthing scene because you were buying Sour Patch Kids, you can see her a lot more on House M.D., which premieres its 6th season tonight on FOX.  It looks like her character Cameron is going to marry Chase this year, which is interesting because those two were engaged in real life and broke it off right before the marriage.  Talk about conflict!  Let's hope some of the awkwardness shines through on screen.         A word from Jennifer: "This isn't technically the normal way that medicine works."Oh great!  Thanks for pulling back the curtain and revealing all the smoke and mirrors behind the magic of television.  You're such a party-pooper, Jennifer.  …But I'd still play doctor with you. Here are a few more pics of Jennifer after the jump that won't poop your party!

Monday, September 21 by

 Tonight, President Obama will visit the Late Show with David Letterman, and is set to be the only guest (sorry if you got bumped). This is his sixth time on the show, but the first time back since his election, and the speculation is that he'll be using this appearance to talk about the future of health care in America.  So what exactly might be said during his hour on late night TV? We gave that a think over here at Screen Junkies, and in the grand tradition of Dave, came up with a Top Ten list of our own. So here it is, an entirely speculative list…  Top Ten Things Obama Might Say on Letterman

Did a ‘Paranormal Activity’ screener haunt Steven Spielberg’s home?

Sunday, September 20 by

According to a new L.A. Times article, Paranormal Activity isn't just a film about a haunting; the film itself may actually be haunted – at least, if Steven Spielberg is to be believed. John Horn's article cites a source within Dreamworks as having said that, upon viewing a DVD screener at his Malibu home, Mr. Spielberg was inexplicably locked inside his bedroom and had to call a locksmith in order to get out. And upon his eventual release, the man who gave us Poltergeist tossed the screener in a trash bag and brought it straight back to the Dreamworks offices.Viral marketing hooey, or a legendary filmmaker genuinely freaked out by a film? Or even better… is there a standard def ghost in the Blu-Ray machine? Read the whole article over at the L.A. Times, where you can find out just how this scrappy $5000 do-it-yourself movie is being distributed by the folks behind Star Trek and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. And cower at the convincing scares in the trailer after the jump.

‘Greek’ Actress Tiffany Dupont

Friday, September 18 by

Let's just break the bad news right off the bat.  Tiffany Dupont, who stars as Frannie Morgan in Greek, loves Christianity bunches and bunches.  We're not saying there's anything wrong with being best friends with Jesus, but that likely means he's (He's?) putting the kibosh on sex until marriage, my friends.  Damn!  And I've got two strikes against me because A) we're not married and B) I'm as Jewish as the day (and the nose) is long.  She'd bring me home to the folks and they'd probably throw holy water at me.  Which would sting because on top of being Jewish I'm also a vampire.  Awww that's THREE strikes!       A word from Tiffany: "No, Mel Gibson was not involved."Yeah, that's what you think, Tiffany.  But chances are he's pulling those strings from a secret laboratory in his Malibu mansion.  Mel Gibson is always involved. Martin Riggs is probably even involved in these pics after the jump…

Adam McKay Talks “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters”

Friday, September 18 by

 A few months back we told you about the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters project that Gary Sanchez Productions had picked up from Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola. Now Sanchez honcho Adam McKay spills a little bit about where the production is at. No casting has been announced (though he mentions Will Ferrell will sit this one out) but it does seem the film will be an effects-driven, monster slaying good time. Think of it like MiB meets Shrek. Random sidenote, Susan Boyle would be PERFECT for a live-action Shrek. (MTV)  Morning links… Spike Lee and Robert Deniro venture into Alphabet City.

Obama Has a Lightsaber: A Gallery

Thursday, September 17 by

It's a known fact that President Obama is a bit of a sci-fi nerd, and any doubt was obliterated this week when he jousted with a lightsaber on the White House lawn during an announcement for Chicago's 2016 Olympics bid. The story blew up so big, even the guy picking his nose in the background of the photo became a bit of a celebrity on Digg (ironic, considering he was only digging himself).

‘Community’ Actress Gillian Jacobs

Thursday, September 17 by

Gillian Jacobs stars as Britta in the new sitcom Community, which starts tonight on the network that took away five blocks of scripted drama time so they could give Jay Leno his own show because they were afraid of losing his massive chin.  Anyway…the sexy blond plays opposite "Talk Soup" dude Joel McHale and, drum roll please…Chevy Chase!  That's right, folks, he's back!  I know this post is supposed to be about Gillian, but come on, Chevy Chase is back, and he's supposed to be funny again.  NBC should give HIM his own show five nights a week.  Oh wait, FOX already did that back in '93…  A word from Gillian: "I was actually watching a rerun the other day, and I was like, ‘I recognize that place! I've seen that swing before!'"Ah yes, the swing.  It brings back so many fond memories.  Memories of never having anyone to push you on it because you're a poor, ugly little orphan who's addicted to smack.  Thanks for ripping that one out of a deep, dark place, Gillian!Here's some pics after the jump that'll get you swingin'!
