Although the role of “wife” has already been taken, Leslie Mann has inevitably joined New Line‘s continuation of the Vacation series. She will be branching out from her traditional spousal role to take up the mantle of Audrey Griswold, the daughter played originally by Dana Barron and then by Dana Hill, Juliette Lewis, and Marisol Nichols in the later sequels before the role reverted back to Dana Barron again for Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie’s Island Adventure.

While Christina Applegate is tasked with rolling her eyes at Ed Helms’s Rusty, Mann’s Audrey will pursue Chris Hemsworth‘s handsome anchorman, Stone Crandall. It really does seem like there was a screw up at the Casting Lab and somehow Mann and Applegate’s files got switched. (THR)

We probably all put the news of an Ed Helms-starring Vacation reboot far in the back of our minds after hearing it, but the film is becoming more and more real every day. It’s now slated to being shooting in September, and it won’t just be Ed Helms with a camcorder in his garage.

Nope. The producers of the franchise of Chevy Chase films have cast, in addition to Helms as grown-up son rusty, Christina Applegate as his wife, Chris Hemsworth as his sister Audrey’s husband, and Charlie Day with a small part as a rafting guide.

So there’s gonna be rafting? Sweet!

Of course, Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are expected to make cameos, though what the hell they’re going to do remains a mystery. Probably just hang around the old folks home or something, talking about that cat in the Jell-O mold.

You know how when you read an article on The Onion, it seems like 84% of the joke is in the punchline? That’s how I feel about this article. There’s going to be a film called Epic Fail. I normally don’t judge a movie by its title, but normally, movies aren’t titled Epic Fail.

So…*sighs*…I guess we should talk about the plot. Ed Helms will play the head of an “elite, but highly unorthodox, special forces team.” Ok. That actually does sound pretty funny.

In the event that the movie is terrible, it will at least have lived up to its name. It’s stupid, stupid name. And every crappy movie journalist in the world will delight in that fact.

As he had been called upon to be the modern face of the National Lampoon Vacation films reboot, Ed Helms is once again being summoned to make something old accessible to teenage fans of nut-shots. The Hangover/The Office nerdy guy will take over the role of Frank Drebin in a reboot of The Naked Gun. Though I find Helms likable (when not singing), this is one he shouldn’t touch. Nobody should touch. The Naked Gun is more than a classic. It’s special and doesn’t deserve to be mishandled.

Creators Jim Abrahams, David & Jerry Zucker are not involved with this reboot as Paramount has assigned scripting duties to Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. Presumably because they are close friends with “Weird” Al Yankovic and the studio’s best shot at getting him to agree to cameo once again. (Variety)

Todd Phillips promised that the final chapter in The Hangover trilogy wouldn’t follow the same beats and conceit of its predecessors and he’s a man of his word.

The latest trailer for The Hangover Part III lays out the film’s plot. After Alan goes off his meds, the guys take a road trip to deliver him to a rehab facility. However, they’re hijacked by gangsters on the hunt for Mr. Chow while en route. That leads to a global hunt and probably male nudity.

Pulling a page from the CBS sitcom casting playbook, New Line is in talks with Christina Applegate to have her star opposite Ed Helms in their Vacation update.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone writing team of John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are directing the sequel/reboot. The story follows Helms as the adult version of Rusty Griswold who embarks on his own bungled vacation. Applegate will play his wife whom THR hints may be growing tired of him. It’s the singing all the time, I bet. Enough with all the singing Ed Helms.

Original stars Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are rumored to also reprise their characters because they would just find another venue to do so anyway.

Helms can next be seen in The Hangover III and Applegate will appear in the highly-anticipated Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Beyond that, you’ll likely be able to see them appear together in Old Navy commercials thirty years from now.

Todd Phillips promised that The Hangover Part III wouldn’t be another rehash of what made the original great. After watching this teaser trailer for the final chapter in the trilogy, I’m worried that Todd Phillips doesn’t know what the word “rehash” means.

Thus I’m happy to present the first teaser trailer for this summer’s biggest comedy. Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis,Ed Helms, and some form of exotic animal return to have crazy adventures with Las Vegas gangsters one more time.

The American version of The Office is finally giving America what America wants — The Rev. Sir Dr. Stephen Tyrone Mos Def Colbert, D.F.A., Heavyweight Champion of the World.

Truthiness will descend upon Scranton on October 25th in this season’s Halloween episode. The Colbert Report host will step into the shoes of Andy’s college a cappella rival, Broccoli Rob. The character has been teased over the years and, though several years since Cornell, remains the bane of Andy’s existence. With the show in its final season, it was time to bring in Brocc to help Andy resolve his deep-seated anger issues. Otherwise, it would just be weird that he’s talking about him all of the time and viewers would assume that the two had a bad breakup or something. (EW)

Let's harken back to that era.

After National Lampoon has made every attempt to sully the reputation of everything it had ever touched with crap like Dorm Daze and Pledge This! the remnants of the magazine’s only lauded property, the Vacation series, are set to rise from the ashes with a reboot/sequel-y type of thing.

With Lampoon‘s track record, that would normally be cause for an audible groan, but the fact that Ed Helms is in talks to play Clark Griswold’s grown son Rusty in the coming installments gives some hope to the project.

In case it’s not clear, Rusty would be the focus and patriarch of the next installment, after almost 15 years since Chevy Chase regaled us with Vegas Vacation.

Is Randy Quaid going to reprise his role? I heard he’s available!

Most movie press conferences tend to be pretty dull. That’s why we called in DJ Flula. Rather than asking the cast of Jeff Who Lives At Home a bunch of boring questions about the film’s craft services table, he sampled various sounds and phrases from the interview and turned it into a techno song. How did it turn out? Well, I can say without hyperbole that it’s the greatest techno song sampled from a movie press junket that I’ve ever heard. But watch for yourself.

And check out Jeff Who Lives At Home, starring Ed Helms, Jason Segel, and Susan Sarandon. It hits theaters March 16th.

Mike Tyson, the source for about 88% of all our entertainment news, has confirmed that he’s coming back for The Hangover Part III. This announcement wouldn’t have even been newsworthy, except after the tepid reception of The Hangover Part II, the producers and cast said that they were going to take things in a different direction.

Oh well. They held out as long as they could.

No plot details are available, but we’ll leave you with this nugget from producer/director Todd Phillips:

“Obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy. The third would be very much a finale and an ending… I haven’t discussed it with these actors yet. [It would] not follow the same template, but is very much a new idea.”

Obviously. It would be ridiculous and reckless if they had just done the one.

Much like Shia LaBeouf, we all knew there’d be another Hangover. Now Bradley Cooper has confirmed it. He’s also confirmed that nobody was happy with the formulaic approach to The Hangover II and that the third entry won’t serve up such a recognizable storyline. He tells TV host Graham Norton:

“I hope we’ll start shooting next September. I know (director) Todd Phillips is working on the script. We stuck to the formula in the second one but the third would need to close the trilogy. I think it’ll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure.”

I don’t know. Can we believe him that we’ll be entertained in a fresh and original way? The man is an actor after all. He’s paid to make believe. This could just be one huge misdirect tailored to trick us into buying tickets for another chapter. Then again… those eyes. They’re so deep. I feel like I can see into his soul. It’s warm and honest there. (National Ledger)

Congratulations!

The post 9 Actors Who Were Born To Play Frankenstein appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
One of the 621 Frankenstein movies that are currently in development found itself a director in Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel), which is great. Every film needs a director. However, this announcement begs the question, “Who will play Frankenstein’s monster (let’s just call him Frankenstein and not be all up-our-own-ass about the semantics) in the new project?”

Well, pretty much anyone can portray Frankenstein. I could get a Golden Globe nod for my performance if the director just gave me three Xanax, a 1″ lift in my right shoe, and a burn on the roof of my mouth with a Bagel Bite just out of the oven. So with the playing field being equal, it comes down to looks.

“What has two thumbs and sort of looks like Frankenstein? These guys!”

Truthfully, though, I wouldn’t be surprised if Trejo was missing a thumb.

9. Matt Dillon


He may be in a tie with #8 for the best-looking guy on this list, but still Frankenstein-esque. He also speaks with a deep enough voice that when I’m watching Wild Things while writing (which is most days), I sometimes get startled and need to look up to reassure myself that Denise Richards and Neve Campbell aren’t having a threeway with Frankenstein, because that would just drive me up the wall with sexiness.

8. David Boreanz

Bones could be Frankenstein. I’m aware that Bones is actually the girl on the show of the same name, but it’s just easier for me if I call everyone on that show Bones, as it prevents me from having to learn anything about the show Bones.

7. Danny Trejo


Danny Trejo looks like he has been stitched together a la Frankenstein, complete with baseball glove-type skin. I don’t think Frankenstein had a tattoo on his chest, but the news of Levy’s attachment doesn’t say when the film is set. 2011 Frankenstein in Williamsburg, Brooklyn could totally have a chest tattoo.

“Frankenstein need pick up American Spirits before Frankenstein go ironic barbecue.”

Warner Bros is developing a new talkie titled True North and they’re using it as a vehicle for a member of the Wolfpack. Ed Helms is set to star in the moving picture as a selfish radio DJ who falls into a two-year coma after a plane crash. After waking to find his looks have been surgically altered, he sets out to find and reconnect with his family. Doesn’t sound like that harrowing of a journey but then again, dude is probably hesitant to fly.

The pitch was bought from Rob Pearlstein, who has written for Medium and The Inside. Pearlstein is currently at work on his directorial debut, Someone Marry Barry. (Variety)

You just don’t copy another guy’s tattoo. Not only does it lack originality but it’s also creepy. Warner Bros and the producers of The Hangover 2 have learned this the hard way. Tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill sought to block the theatrical release of The Hangover 2 when he saw previews that featured Ed Helms with the same facial tatt that he designed for Mike Tyson. Warner lawyers were able to squash the attempt by painting a tunnel entrance on a mountainside and tricking Whitmill to drive into. However much like an animated coyote, the tattoo artist is on the case once again with a better-conceived trap. One that can’t possibly fail. Or can it?

Yep, it can. Though Whitmill has worked out a deal to receive money for his copyright, Warners have opted to digitally augment the tattoo before the film is released on home video in December. That means Whitmill can claim against the theatrical release and marketing materials that feature his work, but won’t see a dime of the DVD sales. In silent protest, Whitmill will design a tattoo of Calvin urinating on the WB logo. (THR)

The post Review: The Hangover Part II appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Thank God The Hangover Part II is good. We don’t need any more summer disappointments. This is everything we loved about The Hangover and more all new epic, outrageous comedy.

First of all, the film does a great job of handling how the exact same thing happens again. The characters acknowledge it just enough without being all, “Remember the last time we passed out and had to piece back the comic misadventures of the night before?” The only excuse they need is “it’s still funny,” so they don’t dwell on the explanation.

It is nice to see more of the wolf pack’s everyday interaction, including how they’ve coped with the history of Vegas. Phil’s (Bradley Cooper) basically the same but Doug (Justin Bartha) is happily married and Stu (Ed Helms) is now completely overprotective. Alan (Zach Galifianakis) is a definitive personality with his pronunciation of Thailand and random Doogie Howser jokes, and, as destructive as he is, he’s also sweet and protective.

‘Hangover Part II’ Teaser Warms Your Frat Boy Heart

They really build another mystery, even though we’ve already seen Stu’s face tattoo and Alan’s shaved head on the poster. The catch phrases on the poster aren’t spoilers either. “I have a demon in me” comes up in a totally different context than I imagined it would. The script by Scot Armstrong, Craig Mazin and Todd Phillips seamlessly applies the Hangover structure to a new setting. The beauty of it is it could happen anywhere, or with anyone (i.e. franchise.)

This hangover is even more desperate. Stealing Tyson’s tiger is irresponsible, but it’s easy enough to stay out of a wildcat’s path. Thailand is epically seedy and their exploits there have permanent ramifications. They have not given away the most shocking moments in the trailer. You’ve seen one-off gags like hitting the pig with the car, but the actual immoral ones are a surprise. The tattoo artist cameo definitely didn’t need to be a celebrity stunt casting. It works great with just a tough character actor.

If you want a completely different structure then you’ll be disappointed, but then also it wouldn’t be The Hangover, it would just be some other movie. So it’s a tattoo instead of a tooth and a monkey instead of a baby. Stu’s new song isn’t quite as funny as “Halle Berry in her Catwoman suit” and the photo montage at the end isn’t as shocking, but I’m glad they tried them again. The beauty of sequels is they can try different takes on familiar favorites, and build on what they’ve done before. It becomes tradition and there are plenty of new bits destined to be classics. Alan’s meditation flashback is so right for depicting how Alan sees the world.

Look, it’s not entirely unpredictable but it’s funny. The explanation for their second blackout is a bit disappointing but so far, The Hangover Part II is the only summer movie that lives up to the hype. I want to see another one, but the next blackout shouldn’t happen at a wedding. Maybe Doug’s son’s bar mitzvah, and not just finding another missing person. They should cause an international incident, maybe murder someone. It can turn out in the end that he was a terrorist and they actually saved the day, but take it to the next level. Keep doing it though.

Hang onto your chairs, folks, because this news is going to shock you so hard your parents’ grandparents will feel it. The sequel to the massively popular comedy The Hangover, starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and more, has grossed $10 million in midnight showings alone, putting it well on its way to making over $100 million this Memorial Day Weekend.

In case you’re interested in such things, this would make The Hangover Part II the first live-action comedy to even get within spitting distance of making $100 million in one weekend. The other movie to come close is Bruce Almighty at $67 million, proving once and for all that America might like God, but they love drunken hijinks even more. (CinemaBlend)

There was some worry among fans of The Hangover that it wouldn’t be seen on its intended release date on May 26th, due to a lawsuit from the creator of Mike Tyson’s infamous facial tattoo, which was co-opted by Ed Helms for the movie. Here’s Warner Bros. in a statement on the good (for everyone but the tattoo artist) news:

14 photosWarner Bros. Releases Too Many 'Hangover Part II' Stills

“We are very gratified by the Court’s decision which will allow the highly anticipated film, The Hangover Part II to be released on schedule this week around the world. Plaintiff’s failed attempt to enjoin the film in order to try and extract a massive settlement payment from Warner Bros. was highly inappropriate and unwarranted.”

There you have it. If I were that tattoo artist, I’d definitely buy a ticket for something else and sneak into The Hangover Part II this weekend. (Deadline)

The post Todd Phillips Says ‘The Hangover III’ Will Follow A Different Path appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The press conference for The Hangover Part II was today, so already the question of a third Hangover came up. Obviously this one will make money so we should expect the next one. Part II pretty much follows the template of the original, only international and deadlier. Director and co-writer Todd Phillips must know the rule of trilogies, because he’s planning to change it up for the finale.

“It’s certainly not in the same template that you’ve seen these movies,” Phillips said. “Obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy as you can imagine. The third would be very much a finale and an ending. The most I could say about it, what’s in my head, and I haven’t discussed it with these actors, is that it is not following that template but very much a new idea.”

14 photosWarner Bros. Releases Too Many 'Hangover Part II' Stills

I don’t expect it to stop at III. You could always do spinoffs. “Listen, I love this world that we’ve created,” Phillips said. “I love every actor in these movies, even all the ones that aren’t here today as well. Who knows, we do a Mr. Chow movie, I haven’t talked to Ken [Jeong] about it but Chow is definitely a man of mystery much like Austin Powers. He obviously has a web that is woven deep in crime and women.”

It doesn’t even have to be connected to this set of characters. You could always throw new comedians into more hangover situations. “Yeah, please tell that to these guys and their agents,” Phillips deflected. “No, I would not see spinning it off like that. I wouldn’t do that.”

With that, Ed Helms jumped in. “We’re just like the kids in the Vacation movies,” Helms said, making reference to the rotating cast of Griswold kids including Anthony Michael Hall and Juliette Lewis in different entries.

The Hangover series has already gone from Las Vegas to Bangkok, so Phillips reiterated his joke about where a third one could be set. “As far as where it takes place, I said I’m very open, like the Olympic committee, to being pitched and presented cities, flown around with wine and women and bribed,” Phillips said. “Then I will make my decision.”

The Hangover Part II opens May 26.

Somewhere in Burbank, a bunch of Warner Bros. marketing executives are waking up from a long night of partying. They don’t remember the night before, but one of them goes online and realizes they released more than 30 stills from The Hangover Part II. Also, there’s a stupid monkey in the room for some reason.

While those executives piece their night together, you can flip through the above gallery, showing highlights from the newly released group of high quality pics from the summer sequel, starring Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong. The Wolf Pack is back, doing things that are similar to their first outing, but also enough different stuff to warrant your $38.

Directed by Todd Phillips, The Hangover Part II drunkenly stumbles into theaters May 26th. (More images at Collider)

Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Wants To Block Release of ‘Hangover 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mike-tysons-tattoo-artist-wants-to-block-release-of-hangover-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mike-tysons-tattoo-artist-wants-to-block-release-of-hangover-2/#comments Fri, 29 Apr 2011 20:01:49 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209757 He thinks Ed Helms' face tattoo looks a little familiar.

The post Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Wants To Block Release of ‘Hangover 2′ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Mike Tyson‘s face-tattoo artist has sued Warner Bros. and asked for an injunction to prevent the release of The Hangover: Part II. That’s not the crazy part. The crazy part is that he might have a legal leg to stand on.

S. Victor Whitmill (kind of a regal name for a tattoo artist, no?) claims that Tyson gave him ownership of the tattoo design, and, consequently, a copyright on the work. Whitmill has the docs to back up that he’s the copyright holder, and has a signed release from Tyson.

So, the question that remains is: Did the studio need to get his permission to use the design on Ed Helm’s face? There are two sets of circumstances that would preclude the studio from having to get Whitmill’s permission. The first is if the tattoo was different enough that they could argue it’s just a coincidence. Not likely. Though the designs are VERY similar, this might have been viable if, uh, Mike Tyson hadn’t appeared in the original The Hangover.

The second one is that if they argued fair use due to parody. I don’t know enough about copyright law to weigh in on whether this holds water, but we will see as we creep up on the film’s Memorial Day weekend release. I’m sure some sort of compromise will be reached. I think dragging Ed Helms out onto Hollywood Blvd. during the premiere and executing him should do the trick. (THR)

Then again, I think killing Ed Helms is the answer to everything.

Stoner comedies are experiencing a bit of a resurgence of late, what with the stonerly acclaimed Harold & Kumar movies, Pineapple Express, and Your Highness. And now it looks like indie comedian Matt Walsh is getting in on that sweet hydroponic action with High Road. Get it? “High”?

Anyway, here’s the trailer, which kind of seems like it was put together by someone under the influence of cannabis sativa, in that it’s meandering and sluggish. Hopefully the movie will be a lot better, especially with the cast that it has. Take a look at these names: Lizzy Caplan, Rob Riggle, Ed Helms, Horatio Sanz, and Kyle Gass are just some of the people in this thing. And the movie seems to be largely improvised, so maybe the trailer is a fluke. Third option: That you think the trailer is hilarious and I’m an idiot and/or high right now.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the premiere of The Hangover 2, so they can see it with their bros and have a great time. Until then, they can check out these new character posters, featuring each of the main characters (but not Liam Neeson) in a mildly disheveled state, presumably with one of their lines from the movie printed above their heads.

My favorite is the one with Ed Helms, who’s making a tough-to-pin-down facial expression, somewhere between intense fear and resignation. Which one is your favorite? The monkey, probably. I bet it’s the monkey. (Empire)

People you will see in The Hangover Part II: Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms. People who you will not see: Liam Neeson. Monkeys you will see: that monkey they have now.

Neeson’s cameo as a tattoo artist in Bangkok was cut from The Hangover Part II. Director Todd Phillips needed to re-shoot the scene for continuity reasons three weeks ago, but Neeson was in London shooting Clash of the Titans 2: Titan Up. At the last minute, Phillips got Nick Cassavetes to sub-in.

“He came in and crushed it and that is the scene that you will ultimately see in the film,” said Phillips in a recent interview. “[I'm excited for everyone] to see the film. It turned out great.”

The small part has been recast three times. It was going to be played by Mel Gibson, until the cast was like, “he’s… kind of a horrible racist?” So then they cast Neeson, but the above hullabaloo led to Cassavetes nabbing the role. A lot of fuss over a small cameo – hopefully they had time to focus on, y’know, the rest of the movie.

The Hangover Part II drunkenly stumbles into theaters May 26, though the film may not remember it did that on the 27th. (Variety)

Yesterday, the trailer for The Hangover Part II hit the interwebs, and at first glance, the movie looks a lot like the original. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not saying that’s a bad thing. Even if Todd Philips made a scene-for-scene remake, I’d still pay money to see it. But even so, I couldn’t help but notice the glaring similarities. Of course, when you bring back the entire cast of a film, there’s bound to be some overlap, but this goes well beyond that. For example…

Big Wedding – Big Wedding

Both films revolve around a wedding. Not a big deal. In a group of friends, you’re going to have multiple weddings.

Alan Gives a Wacky Toast – Alan Gives a Wacky Toast

OK, I get Alan giving a toast to his friends at a bachelor party, but who the hell would let him speak at the rehearsal dinner? That’s poor planning on Stu’s part.

Missing Guy No One Cares About – Missing Guy No One Cares About

Just like the first film, a character no one cares about goes missing. They might as well have named both of these guys “Mr. MacGuffin.” Honestly, if the groom had died in the first film, it still would have been a hilarious movie.

Stu’s Missing Tooth – Stu’s Facial Tattoo

Poor Stu. First he pulls out his own tooth. Now he’s done gone and got himself a face tattoo!

Tag-Along Baby – Tag-Along Monkey

In the first film, it was funny to see a group of hungover bastards taking care of a baby. In this film, the same can be said for the monkey. As a bonus, there’s always a chance of a monkey attack, which is nice.

Clues In Pockets – Clues In Pockets

In both films, the men must search for clues in their pockets in order to piece together the previous evening. And in both films, wackiness ensues.

Trip to a Chapel – Trip to a Monastery

Church, monastery, whatever. Six of one, a half dozen of the other. After all, Christ is Christ. Am I right?

Baby Jerking It – Monkey Sucking It

In the first film, a baby jerks off. In the second, a monkey sucks off. Sorry the baby picture is of such a low quality, but I didn’t want to run too many searches with the keywords “baby” and “jerkoff.”

Convicted Rapist – Accused Rapist

Mike Tyson was the big surprise cameo in the first film. And while Phillips has denied that Bill Clinton will be appearing in part two, I still think there’s a 50/50 chance.

Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” is a classic children’s book that teaches kids to be more mindful of the natural world. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, teaches kids about drawing hearts on composition books. Now these two forces will collide, as Taylor Swift lends her voice to the upcoming 3D computer animated Dr. Seuss adaptation The Lorax.

She’s joining a pretty solid cast that includes Danny DeVito as the titular Lorax, Ed Helms as the Once’ler, Zac Efron as “Ted, the young boy who searched for the Lorax,” Rob Riggle as King O’Hare and Betty White as Grammy Norma. Swift herself will be playing Audrey, Ted’s love interest. Man, I wonder what Dr. Seuss would think of the idea of adding a “love interest” to his stories. He’d probably write a really angry rhyming couplet about it. (via Deadline)

A new still has been released for The Hangover 2 and loses points right off the bat for not featuring that monkey. Though the guys look pretty stressed out. Maybe they lost the monkey? I know I’d be pretty bummed if I lost a monkey that toured with the Stones. That thing is an automatic chick magnet.

One thing we know they won’t be losing this time around is Doug. Justin Bartha tells Empire in the latest print edition, “Doug isn’t lost in this one. There are similar circumstances, but he’s a little bit more involved.”

We’ll have to wait for a full-length trailer to find out exactly what is going on in this film, what role the monkey plays, and where Zach Galifianakis puts his penis this time around. (via The Playlist)
