LETHAL WEAPON: I’m Too Old for This Sh*t!

Tuesday, March 10 by

So, according to Moviehole.net, another Lethal Weapon (that would make it 5) got put on ice by Warner Bros.  The words came straight from the mouth of series creator Shane Black, who was up to direct the movie himself.Apparently Mel Gibson turned it down because the studio wouldn't let Richard Donner direct it.  And now Mel won't answer Joel Silver's calls.  Danny Glover's sweet residuals from Gone Fishin' have just about dried up by now, so I'm guessing about half those voicemails from Joel Silver "trying to get the gang back together" sound remarkably like Danny Glover.In any case, Weapon 5's script supposedly had Riggs and Murtaugh teaming up once more, but this time alongside Murtaugh's son, also an LAPD officer. I see a trend here…

TUESDAY TV PREVIEW

Tuesday, March 10 by

So it's come to this. Another Tuesday of pretty random selections; Snoop Dogg talking 'heart' (as in the kind Rudy Ruettiger had) with some NFL superstars, the beginning and end of New York City as we know it, and Dave Mordal shooting fruitcakes into the air. Tomorrow, randomness gives way for one of the (if not the) best show on TV to return. Your preview after the break.

Tuesday, March 10 by

With the I LOVE YOU, MAN DVD & Blu-Ray hitting the street on August 11th, Screen Junkies decided this list needed a bit of an update (or upchuck, perhaps).  We're still paying homage to the vomit takes, barf clips and hurl gags that came "B.R." (That's "Before Rudd"), but we want to lead this list with an all-new exclusive DVD clip that tells you just HOW they pulled off the now infamous scene of Rudd puking all over IRON MAN 2 director (and occasional actor) Jon Favreau.

MORNING NEWS ROUNDUP

Tuesday, March 10 by

So, not only could we be getting a Pirates of the Caribbean 4, but Britain's coolest comedian alive, Russell Brand, could be joining the cast.  I don't know about you, but I think Brand is exactly what the series needs.  You know people will come to theaters in droves regardless, but I could overlook what'll likely be the most convoluted plot yet if Mr. Brand is trading verbal blows with Cap'n Jack Sparrow.  Or maybe they won't be adversaries… maybe… they're brothers?  Let the speculation commence. Here’s your morning news. Russell Brand talks Pirates 4 (ComingSoon.Net) Kubrick still alive after being dead ten years (The Playlist)

However, after every insult the man apologizes. After a while, the insulting-man’s nose starts to bleed and he passes out. We have our patient. The team is assembled in House’s office, discussing the case of this new patient. They discuss a historical case of a man who was impaled in the head with a railroad spike.  The man was argumentative and hostile after the accident.

Juma's goons then drag away the President.Bauer whispers to Buchanan.

"The world is waiting Madame President."A live feed straight to internet, broadcasts Taylor's statement. She says that America's at fault, that it's a criminal act of opression from a power hungry country, etc.

TELE-VISIONS: KALEY CUOCO

Monday, March 9 by

Over the past couple seasons, Monday night on CBS has officially become the most ridiculous night on television, thanks to Ms. Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on The Big Bang Theory. My guess is that Penny came about late in the show's development stages, in a meeting between the writers and network execs.  My guess is, it went down a little something like this:
