Because Super Bowl ads are all about spectacle, what better way is there to sell a Kia than by casting the twenty-fifth hottest star of 1999 to repeatedly state that the car is nice? Laurence Fishburne returns to his most sunglassed role to announce the new Kia K900, the only luxury vehicle to completely lose any value within a few years.

The spoon gag was pretty cute though.

A filmmaker recently sat down to show his mom The Matrix. He then recut the film based off her description off the plot. She hilariously missed the mark on a few vital elements.

Reports have recently surfaced that former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar’s daughter Sara Kosar has been doing porn under the name “Lexxi Silver.” That’s definitely a surprise, but remember: It it’s hard being the daughter of a celebrity. People can have very high expectations of you, expectations you might find difficult to meet. There are several different ways of coping, and one of them is to start doing porn. Here are a few (including Kosar) who chose that path, for your furtive viewing pleasure.

Sara Kosar

The aforementioned Sara Kosar, daughter of former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar, is just the latest celebrity daughter to allegedly get into porn (when she’s not working as an aerobics instructor). And it’s evidently not the kind of porn it’s OK to look at while you’re at work. But Lexxi Silver isn’t the first celebrity’s daughter who’s looked to America’s Largest Industry to make some extra cash.

Montana Fishburne

Montana Fishburne, daughter of actor Laurence Fishburne, is another celebrity daughter who recently began a career in porn. And unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Dad is any happier about this than you’d expect, since the actor has reportedly cut off all ties with his daughter. And porn isn’t the onl fringe business Montana has been involved in: In 2009 she was arrested for prostitution. Hey, maybe porn isn’t so bad after all.

Jayme Langford

Not all celebrity daughters in porn capitalize on their famous last names. Take Jayme Langford, whose identity as rock star Dave Navarro’s daughter is such a secret that it isn’t even mentioned on her Wikipedia page. This might be because unlike Montana Fishburne, Jayme Langford isn’t exactly a porn “star.” According to recent rumors, she’s currently addicted to crystal meth and living out of her car.

‘Contagion’ Posters Tell You Six Times Not To Touch Or Talk To Anything http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/contagion-posters-tell-you-six-times-not-to-touch-or-talk-to-anything/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/gallery/contagion-posters-tell-you-six-times-not-to-touch-or-talk-to-anything/#comments Tue, 09 Aug 2011 23:59:05 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=gallery&p=224107 These posters want you to live like a hypochondriac, which makes sense, given the subject of the film.

We get it. There’s a disease and it’s bad. You don’t need to tell us twice. And you certainly don’t need to tell us six different times.

But he does anyway with these character posters for Contagion, which I’m just going to start describing as “Outbreak-but-better.”

We’ve got posters here for Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Laurence Fishburne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, and Kate Winslet. There’s acknowledging that you’ve got a great cast, then there’s bragging about it, and right now director Steven Soderbergh is toeing the line. Seriously, though, this cast looks lights-out.

It’s not clear if the film will be as scary as the posters would lead us to believe, but I have hopes that it will be every bit as good as the hype that surrounds it.

The 'Contagion' Trailer Will Kills Us All!

Steven Soderbergh‘s upcoming viral thriller Contagion is premiering in just a few weeks, provided humanity can survive that long. And you know what that means: TV spots! Here are two, fresh off the Petri dish. Above is the first one, which focuses more on Matt Damon and wife Gwyneth Paltrow before branching off into worldwide panic, while the other one (below) is pretty much all worldwide panic. You can also catch glimpses of Jude Law, Laurence Fishburne, Marion Cotillard, and Kate Winslet. Can’t wait to watch them all slowly die of an incurable virus!

I think these both look great, and I’m excited to see Soderbergh take on such an established genre. And it’ll almost definitely be better than Outbreak.

In news that’s sure to make William Petersen feel just greeeaaatttt about his decision to leave CSI for a career in movies, his CSI replacement has just booked a big role in Zack Snyder‘s Man Of Steel. That’s right. Laurence Fishburne has signed on to play Clark Kent’s jerk boss, the Daily Planet editor Perry White. This casting is a departure from the Perry White we’re used to (previously played by John Hamilton, Jackie Cooper and Frank Langella), but it’s a good sign overall for Snyder’s production, showing that he’s not afraid to shake it up and reinvigorate the classic hero’s story. Also, Fishburne is great in these authoritative roles. I wouldn’t want him for my boss. Poor Jimmy Olsen.

Fishburne joins Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Julia Ormond Harry Lennix and Christopher Meloni, with shooting beginning in the fall. (Deadline)

CSI is getting a new daddy and it’s Ted Danson!! Ever since William Petersen left to pursue a sure-to-be successful film career, the show has had a tough time maintaining its audience. CBS chose not to renew Laurence Fishburne‘s contract after he dedicated two years of his life to making tasteless puns around dead bodies. It’s your turn now, Danson.

Danson will play the CSI supervisor for the grave shift after heading the crime lab in Portland. He comes to the team as they are still grappling with the professional and personal fallout from last season’s take-down of serial killer, Nate Haskell

The casting of Danson caps off an exhaustive search by CBS to find another star worthy enough to help return some luster to the aging CSI franchise. EW learned that offers went out to actors like Tony Shaloub, Robin Williams and John Lithgow before the studio landed on Danson, who’s been enjoying a career resurgence thanks to a critically-acclaimed run on Damages. He received three Emmy nominations for playing Arthur Frobisher. Danson will remain a series regular on Bored to Death. [EW]

Cheer up, Laurence. At least now you’ll have more time to spend with family. Oh… right.
