He’s so charming and likable….IT’S SCARY!!!!
A few other actors who have a chance at “winning” a lead on “Two and a Half Men.” The list includes John Stamos, Martin Sheen and… Heather Locklear?
When CBS presented their new fall drama “The Defenders” at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, the producers told the press that they were eying Dan Aykroyd to play a tough judge who Jim Belushi will face later in the season. The new Blues Brothers go way back, so creator and executive producer Kevin Kennedy thinks it will be easy to get Aykroyd. Belushi actually wanted him sooner but Kennedy didn’t want to stunt cast the pilot.
“Obviously he and Jim are friends,” Kennedy told Screen Junkies on the red carpet at the Paley center. “I believe he did a couple of “According to Jim”s. They’ve talked about it. Jim asked him. Jim suggested him to play the judge in the pilot and we said, ‘You know what? We’d like to save that because we think we could really plan for it and write something specific for it.’ So we talked about it and we asked Danny if he’d be interested in doing it. In theory, yes. It’s a matter of time. It’s a matter of making the schedules work and obviously Danny has to like the script. It’s a long way down the road but it’s a dream.”

Piranha 3D is a movie of the people. Especially people who have always wanted to see Jerry O'Connell have his wiener bitten off (you know who you are). Producers of the inevitable sequel want to stay in the good graces of the fans, so they are making Piranha 3D: Part Two an interactive movie.
That's right! You, Joe Q. Public, can decide which celebrity will be cast to meet a gory demise in the next film. There's no info yet on how to vote, so I'm going to walk out into Times Square and begin shouting "Gary Busey!!" If I do that long enough, two things may happen: 1) producers will receive my vote, 2) the real Gary Busey will show up before me. He's like a "Bewitched" character in that way. (NY Post)
This feels like a formality, but some of the stars of the upcoming Piranha 3D felt it necessary to create a For Your Consideration video to drum up Oscar support. In my opinion, it's already a shoe-in, and I haven't even seen it yet because the studio won't screen it for critics, most likely because it's too amazing to show early.
Jerry "Hollywood Treasure" O'Connell, Adam Scott, Kelly Brook, and Paul Scheer are a few of the cast members asking for your vote this award season. If nothing else, the film should definitely have a lock on the Best Penis Being Gobbled Up and Spit Out in 3D category. The scene of that in Inception was just so-so.
