‘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'!

7 Awful Prequel Ideas & Their Posters

Thursday, September 17 by

If there's one thing Hollywood loves to do, it's run an idea into the ground. And when it comes to squeezing every last dime out of a concept, sequels are the studios' weapon of choice. But what happens when your film's main characters are dead, or your actors refuse to return for part two? A prequel. That’s what happens. From X-Men Origins to Van Wilder: Freshman Year, Hollywood has proven that all you need for a prequel is a loose back story, an established title, and a willingness to crap all over the memory of the original movie. On that note, here are seven awful prequels that are currently in production (in our minds). Shawshank Origins: Brooks Haven’t you always wondered about the mysterious origins of Brooks Hatlen, the librarian and resident "bird man" of Shawshank? No? Well screw you. That's what you're getting.    

MTV Developing “Greg The Bunny” Spin-Off

Thursday, September 17 by

 MTV has announced they are developing a spin-off to one of our favorite cult shows, Greg the Bunny. The new series, Warren the Ape, focuses on Greg's puppet counterpart Warren T. Ape DeMontague as he attempts to pick up the tattered shreds of his acting career. Failing to win any roles, DeMontague agrees to appear on a reality show as a last ditch effort. He's just like Trishelle. Both will do anything for attention and neither mind having fists stuffed up their butts.

1950s ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ Trailer Remake

Wednesday, September 16 by

Some clever fellow by the name of 'whoiseyevan' created this homage to the very 1950s pulp adventure flicks to which the Indiana Jones films paid homage as well. It's like Indiana Jones and the Search for Some Crazy Ass Meta Sh*t. The mash-up pulls from so many sources we can't list them, and features a pre-militant, rifle-carrying Charlton Heston as Dr. Jones, and a bevy of '50s film stars… all coming together for some uncannily similar action to Spielberg & Lucas's action hero. Impressive stuff. [via BoingBoing] No time for love, Dr. Jones? Make time for these links at least: Does Kanye Have Asperger's Syndrome?

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Actress Nina Dobrev

Wednesday, September 16 by

Nina Dobrev stars as "Elena Gilbert" in the new show The Vampire Diaries, and guess what? Her character's in love with a vampire.  Dammit, what is wrong with women?!  Why do they find fanged bloodsuckers so damn attractive?  Twilight, True Blood, and now intimate journal entries on the subject.  Most of the girls I know don't even like hickeys on their necks, let alone pustulating fang punctures.  Fine, go fall in love with your vampire, Nina. Take the ridiculous ratings that come with it.  I'll cry salty tears like the mortal I am. Your new boyfriend is incapable of crying, you know.      A word from Nina: "There is something about a man who lurks in the dark."Way to invite the stalkers, Nina.  Like seriously, you can't say stuff like that because stalkers pay very close attention.  Then they pop out the dark, naked; you run away screaming; they get arrested and testify that you…ASKED FOR IT.  And they might have a case.Here's some more of what you're sure to ask for.  Pics after the jump!

Giraffe Dies On Set of Kevin James Movie

Wednesday, September 16 by

Celebricide '09 continues. News has broke that the giraffe that starred in many Toys R Us commercials and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective died unexpectedly on the set of the new Kevin James film, The Zookeeper. Tweet the Giraffe's death came as a shock as the animal was believed to have no known health problems. A federal probe is being conducted to find out if any mistreatment took place. The Zookeeper tells the story of a rotund zookeeper who gets some advice in the romance department from the sassy animals he cares for. Think of it as a more furry Hitch. It's a shame to see another noteworthy actor join the Raul Julia Club of Actors Who Died With Crappy Final Films. (WHDH)40 Bear wants you to read these morning links… Jessica Biel joins A-Team.

‘Drugs Are Fun’ PSA featuring Black Dynamite

Tuesday, September 15 by

Drugs Are Fun PSA – Watch more Movie Trailers In the above viral promo for Black Dynamite, starring Michael Jai White, the titular badass is on a mission to fight smack in the orphanage. He pays a visit to the front stoop of Ding Dong Roar (a disturbing '70s "Sesame Street"/"Zoobilee Zoo" hybrid) to let us know that drugs aren't as fun as they look. But judging by the catchy song, hypercolors and characters like Funky Feline and Little Strange Alien Child, drugs appear to be way f**king fun. Why Tom Sizemore isn't a regular on "Ding Dong Roar" is beyond us. Black Dynamite opens October 16th, 2009. Be sure to visit the official site of Black Dynamite's crusade: Fight Smack in the Orphanage. You can help the children and sh*t.

OMFG. It’s a homemade Yoda Fleshlight.

Tuesday, September 15 by

Now, before you unsheath your lightsabers to gouge your eyes out, know this: the photograph laying atop the mattress is not actually of Yoda or his Irish cousin Seamus O'Dagobah (could have fooled me).  Nay, it's that of Yaddle, a female counterpart of Yoda's who is also part of the Jedi Council. So, your childhood hero is not about to be violated in effigy. Just one of George Lucas's afterthoughts crammed into The Phantom Menace. So use the Force, pal. Use as much Force as you want. Those Fleshlights are…ahem… supposed to be durable.  [Source: PictureIsUnrelated.com]Here are today's top links: How To Convince Your Girlfriend To Like Football (HolyTaco)Christopher Lloyd Is Doing Great.
