‘JULIE AND JULIA’ ACTRESS VANESSA FERLITO

Friday, August 7 by

It's pretty much a certainty that Julie & Julia will lack any semblance of edge or bad-assery.  In spite of the fact that Julia Child was a spy before she was a cook, we think feel-good writer/director Nora Ephron chose to ignore that (here's hoping, however, that Paul Greengrass will direct a prequel to this movie focusing on her days as an impulsive secret agent).  The principal actresses Meryl Streep and Amy Adams don't really scream "gritty" either.  So, all hope would be lost for any sultriness in the film opening today, save for Vanessa Ferlito.  The Brooklyn-born beauty is most recently known for delivering a sexy lap dance to Kurt Russel in the extended version of Death Proof.  You may also remember her from the Tommy Lee Jones' film Man of the House (okay, we only remember the "This is my happy faaace!" line from that movie too).A word from Vanessa: "Directors look at me and think, Brooklyn, rough and tough. But I can also hang out with Helen Mirren." To be fair, Helen Mirren can hang in Brooklyn too.  Let's not forget that she's credited for the clapping at the beginning of the KRS-One song "MC's Act Like They Don't Know" But that's besides the point; check out more hot photos of Vanessa after the jump!

‘ZOMBIELAND’ RED-BAND TRAILER

Thursday, August 6 by

ZOMBIELAND Red Band Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers After Shaun of the Dead, the idea of making a good zombie comedy must seem daunting to any sane person.  And while the green band trailer for Zombieland didn't make anyone immediately name it the successor to Shaun, the newly released red band trailer embraces the odd-couple pairing of Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson and the gratuitous zombie violence… all of which makes this trailer a fun watch.  Hopefully, the movie will be as awesome without getting tired of killing the undead.While you're thinking about just how many ways there really are to kill a zombie, check out these links for inspiration: Jeri Lee Actin' All Sexy (Gorillamask) A Flowchart To Determine If You're Going To Have Sex On A Date (Holytaco) Leo Dicaprio and Ridley Scott Have Eyes On Brave New World (Filmdrunk) 40 Sexy Girls Dressed As GI Joe Babes (Manofest) Microsoft Makes New Zune… But Why?

‘COLD SOULS’ ACTRESS KATHERYN WINNICK

Thursday, August 6 by

Paul Giammatti is not known as a classical beauty, but rather possibly the most awesome actor of recent times (if this post were a soap box, I would spend the next twenty minutes bitching about how he didn't get an Academy Award for Sideways, but soap box this is not).  Luckily, his new film Cold Souls has plenty of pretty ladies surrounding him to make up for his lack of gorgeousness.  Yesterday, we noted Lauren Ambrose's presence in the film; today, we direct your attention to the blonde bombshell Katheryn Winnick.  The Canadian beauty has been in a bunch of projects ranging from small to big, but what sets her apart from her peers is that she's a third-degree black belt in tae kwon do, and a second-degree black belt in karate.  She's also a licensed body guard, which probably makes any guy reading this want to get rich and famous enough to necessitate a body guard, in hopes that they could find one this hot.  Our guess, however, is that they'd wind up with a 300 pound man named "Tito."A word from Katheryn: "I would love to work with Shirley McClaine, Phillip Seymour Hoffman. People that are grounded and human and passionate."We would love to see you work with them as well… Or take them on in a brutal tae kwon do sparring match.  Either way, it'd be cool.  Check out more photos of Katheryn after the jump!

I'm definitely going to invest. Ticker symbol: SNUG. Snuggie for Dogs – As Seen on TV Network – Watch more Funny Videos Warm your pups with these morning links… MTV 2009 VMA Best Breakthrough Videos.

GIRL ON GAME SHOW INSULTS THE CHINESE WITH ANSWER

Wednesday, August 5 by

 Girl Gets Answer Very Wrong – Watch more Funny Videos Apparently the clip is from a Kiwi game show called "W3" – presumably from the early '80s based on hair dating technology – and features a young female contestant nonchalantly giving an answer that you might only expect from your well-meaning but racially insensitive relative who fought in WW2.  You have to commend young Jerry.  Like a young, Asian Martin Luther King of Oceanic televised game shows, he gives nary a flinch while following up with the correct answer.  Still, casual racism is hysterical, especially for white folks who feel inferior Asians, who, as whole, are omniscient.
