We look back at a few times she failed to give a single f**k — even when she probably should have.

The post R.I.P. Joan Rivers: Her Nine Most Controversial Moments appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Joan Rivers, everyone’s favorite surgically-altered comedian/insult artist, passed away today in New York at the age of 81, after suffering cardiac arrest during a “minor throat procedure” last week. And so, another comedy legend has left this mortal coil.

Rivers is inarguably a trailblazer for female comedians, having delved into blue stand-up comedy in the 1960s when it was still taboo for any comedian, let alone a pretty young lady from Brooklyn. Amy Schumer, Whitney Cummings, Lisa Lampanelli and the like owe a tremendous debt to her; in the coming days, you’ll undoubtedly hear and read lots of elegies pointing this out.

In her later years, however, Rivers became known more for her unapologetic brand of comedy that often fell into inappropriate and politically incorrect territory. Luckily, the combination of her advanced age and the universal understanding that Joan Rivers has never given a single f*** made all her “controversies” somewhat short-lived.

Rivers said a lot that landed her in trouble throughout the decades, but here are some of her more recent moments of cold-bloodedness. Rest in peace, Joan Rivers: A sharp-tongued legend who never stopped going in.

1. Calling Michelle Obama a “Tranny”: Dime-store “reporters,” including TMZ and the like, discovered that the octogenarian Rivers was even less restrained than in her younger years, so they all approached her with the same agenda: Get a potentially viral video out of her. Indeed, she rarely disappointed: Here, she called the leader of the free world “gay” and his wife a “tranny” in an under-40-second clip. After the fallout, she gave a deliciously bulls**t non-apology that was actually more outrageous than the original statement.

2. Rivers on Palestine: Less than a month ago, TMZ got their hooks in Rivers (again) by getting her to talk about the renewed Israel-Palestine conflict. She said the Palestinians “deserve to be dead.” In very rare form, she actually apologized for her comments. Looks like even she has some limits.

3. Heidi Klum Holocaust Joke: Now, this was a rare example of a Joan Rivers compliment that just went pear-shaped. Rivers was praising Heidi Klum’s ensemble from the 2013 Oscars on her show Fashion Police, saying, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.” Since Rivers is Jewish, I’m not sure if she has more leeway to make a crack like this, or less. Either way, people were pissed, and she wasn’t sorry.

4. Comments on captive women: Quick but dirty: On her WEtv reality show Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best? Rivers lamented on the lack of space in her daughter’s guest bedroom by saying, “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more room.’’ Of course, she was referencing the women held captive, raped and tortured for years by sadist Ariel Castro. Hardly ever one for regrets, Rivers refused to ever apologize for the comments.

5. Rivers bounces from CNN Interview: CNN anchor (and my future second wife) Fredricka Whitfield interviewed Rivers about her book Diary of a Mad Diva. The interview was going just fine until Whitfield started nicely asking her about her tendency to, y’know, piss people off. Then Rivers got defensive, unhooked her mic mid-invective and stormed off. CNN sucks more often than not, but Rivers was definitely reaching.

6. Lindsay Lohan Miscarriage Jokes: Oprah Winfrey and company, for some strange reason, had the shining beacon of an idea to give Lindsay Lohan her own eponymous “docu-series” that no one ever really cared about. On that show’s series finale, she admits to having had a miscarriage that messed up the show’s production for a while. TMZ (big surprise) encountered Rivers and her daughter Melissa on the street; likely knowing she would say something spectacularly screwed up, they asked her opinion on Lohan’s miscarriage. She didn’t let down. Even Melissa was grossed out.

7. North West ugly comments: Now I’m more open-minded than most, but even I think this is a tad grimy. I wish all the hate the world can muster to be rained down upon Kim Kardashian‘s and Kanye West‘s vapid noggins, but bringing their spawn into the mix is another thing. Mind you, the phrase, “I’ve never seen a 6-month-old so desperately in need of waxing” is pretty damn funny, but that poor girl already has plenty of crap to deal with growing up with the parents she has (and her name).

8. Cracking on Adele’s Weight: This one is mean only because Adele hasn’t done anything we know of to feel any sense of schadenfreude toward her. Sure, Adele is on the larger side of things, but Rivers pretty much went hard on Twitter to let everyone know exactly what she thought about her, and even dragged Adele’s baby in the mix.

9. Kim Kardashian Sex Tape Spoof: This one is pretty self-explanatory: two B-list celebrities grasping for straws by making fun of that devil of a tape which made Kim Kardashian a “star.” It made baby sister Khloe so angry she bailed on co-hosting Rivers’ Fashion Police show. I’m sure Khloe’s absence totally resulted in the show missing out on an Emmy.

‘Grand Theft Auto’ Crew Sued By Lindsay Lohan For Basing Obnoxious Character On Her http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/grand-theft-auto-crew-sued-by-lindsay-lohan-for-basing-obnoxious-character-on-her/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/grand-theft-auto-crew-sued-by-lindsay-lohan-for-basing-obnoxious-character-on-her/#comments Thu, 03 Jul 2014 16:00:55 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=262673 Probably, but is this the path you want to take, Lindsay?

Using her time that could otherwise be spent acting or generally being a more productive member of society, Lindsay Lohan is suing the guys behind Grand Theft Auto for allegedly thinly veiling her likeness for the vapid, broke starlet Lacey Jonas in the most recent iteration of the game.

Any similarities, suggested or overt, would probably be unenforceable due to satire exemptions, but nonetheless, it’s odd, even by Lohan standards, that this is how she wants to go. Claiming that a fictional moron in a video game that people is clearly her. I mean, it probably is, but she could probably get the same public reaction by putting a metal pot on her head, and run down the street banging it with a wooden spoon yelling, “I’M LINDSAY LOHAN, AND I’M DUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.”

Which she’s been doing metaphorically for about seven years now.

Somehow or another, Lindsay Lohan was somehow deemed fit to produce the ironically-titled Inconceivable. Today comes word that not only will Lohan handle the small matters of choosing a director and shaping creative, but will also star in the film. The insurance company, that must have been recently thawed after a 2005 ski trip accident, agreed to ensure the actress. Analysts project this film will be denied from festivals in 2021. (The Wrap)

“Somethingsomethingsomething cocaine trainwreck.”

News broke recently that Charlie Sheen helped Lindsay Lohan with a tax bill by giving her $100k. Since it’s become common knowledge that Charlie Sheen doesn’t give money to women without expecting something sleazy in return, it’s finally time for Lindsay Lohan to pay the piper with an appearance on Sheen’s FX series Anger Management. Ugh. It might be more palatable just to pay off the debt with sex like all the others do.

The two “characters” will meet in therapy and kick off a romance (that will apparently last one episode).

Such is the state of Lindsay Lohan’s career that she’s only available to find work in forms of self-parody and Greco-Roman clusterfucks of films like The Canyons. I guess it beats the macabre alternatives.

In a movie, you guys. They’re not actually sleeping together… yet.

When these two slime monsters do agree to squirt their fluids inside one another, the gossip machine will cave in on itself and the E! reporters will have brain overloads that cause them to forget the word ‘Kardashian’. So, there is a silver lining. But, as of today, their genitals adhering to one another like Velcro before raising the Nightmare City of R’lyeh has yet to occur.

So we can rest assured, the Scary Movie franchise is the only place a union so unholy can happen. But also, shame on you Scary Movie franchise. You’ve been helping terrible people be terrible for too long. Praise the Lord that Leslie Nielsen and his fart machine aren’t around to see this.

For now.

The post Lindsay Lohan Is Exhausted appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Lindsay Lohan has been going through some well-publicized trials lately. There’s the car accident, for one, but also the filming of the Lifetime Original Movie Liz and Dick, which features Lohan in a sure-to-be-scrutinized performance as Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor. So it was a little bit alarming to read reports of paramedics being called to the Ritz Carlton Hotel where Lohan was staying during the shooting of the movie.

Apparently, someone called 911 after finding Lohan unconscious and was unable to revive her. Paramedics arrived and somehow determined that there was nothing seriously wrong with her, and left without taking her to the hospital. Lohan is reportedly suffering from a simple case of exhaustion, which is easily explained by the reportedly extreme conditions of the Liz and Dick shoot. Sources say that Lohan had just gotten done with two straight sleep-free days of shooting – no wonder she’s exhausted.

Anyway, Lindsay was NOT hospitalized, contrary to earlier reports, and is apparently doing OK now. Hopefully she will get some sleep and pull herself out of this exhaustion. Or, barring that, do something more interesting to write about. But it’s Friday afternoon, what do you expect? (TMZ)

Good news for people who like Amanda Seyfried naked. E! is reporting that the starlet will have nude scenes in the upcoming biopic, Lovelace. Considering the film is about porn actress and star of Deep Throat Linda Lovelace, that really isn’t a big surprise. However, it is awesome.

“It’s going to be very risqué,” Patrick Muldoon, a producer at the film’s production company Eclectic Pictures, told the site.

He added that “Thematically, it’s talking about how abusive the porn industry was to Linda Lovelace. Yes, there’s a lot of nudity, but it’s a message movie about respecting women.”

Yeah, it’s all about respect. Now make with the boobies, chop chop.

The supporting cast seems to be something of a sausagefest, featuring Peter Sarsgaard, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, James Franco, Eric Roberts, Adam Brody and Demi Moore. I bet a bunch of dudes will go topless, too, if that’s your thing. (E! via Coming Soon)

It wasn’t scheduled for release until next week, but wouldn’t you know it… Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy cover has leaked online early. Along with statements from her publicist. How could this ever have happened? Maybe the armored truck that was transporting the photo was high-jacked by bandits or something.

Anyway, the cover features a naked Lindsay straddling a chair shaped like the Playboy logo with the chair back hiding the good parts. Also not pictured, the photo assistant in charge of Windexing that chair between shots.

Lindsay will debut the entire spread on the December 15th episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I think we all know whose decision that was…

Lindsay Lohan surprised the world (of Opposite Land) today when it was announced that she has struck a deal with Playboy to appear naked within its pages. Though inevitable, this was expected to have happened five years ago. Back then, the attention might have helped her repair her career. Now it just seems like a desperate cash grab to cover legal fees and her excessive lifestyle.

Obviously, she’s not the only one to take it all off in the hopes of gaining notoriety (it’s actually how Playboy has managed to keep it going all these years), nor is she the only one to wait too long. Here are seven other actresses who decided to pose for Playboy far too late into their attractiveness. Lindsay Lohan, this is your future.

Teri Polo

Teri Polo made the weird decision to parlay her Meet the Parents fame into a spread in Playboy. She was 36 years old at the time, which means she was about eighteen years late. This move didn’t really propel her into more stardom as her subsequent roles have mainly been guest appearances on CSI: Miami and The Ghost Whisperer.

Lisa Rinna

Lisa Rinna decided to return to familiar surroundings after Dancing With the Stars made her relevant again. She originally posed for Playboy while pregnant (gee… thanks, Lisa) when her stint on Melrose Place came to an end. Then again in 2006 at the age of 46 (gee… thanks, Lisa).

In news that would give you a boner back in 2004, Lindsay Lohan has posed nude for Playboy. TMZ reports that despite her rotten teeth and bloody fingers, Hugh Hefner has paid her close to $1 million to strip off. It’s reported that some of the shoots have alread taken place with more scheduled to happen.

However, there is no indication when the pictures will be released or what level of butt-nekkidness will be on display. It’s obvious that she’s doing this for the money since her lifestyle has compromised her career. My only question is, what was the hold-up? We all knew this day would come. In fact, we’ve had a draft of this article saved for years. Just like news outlets do with celebrity obituaries.

If only she posed back when the nickname “fire crotch” was in reference to her hair color.

The post In Memory Of Dan Wheldon: Our 7 Favorite Movie Race Car Drivers appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Yesterday, beloved two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Dan Wheldon died in a 15-car collision in a Las Vegas race, reminding us all how dangerous race car driving can be. However, he leaves behind a legacy that also reminds us why we love racing. The inherent drama and binary nature of races (first or second, winner or loser) makes racing plots a favorite in Hollywood.

With racing on our minds after this tragic development, we thought we’d take inventory of our favorite racers and drivers in movies. So let’s buckle up, hit the gas, and “add additional racing cliché here”!

7. Maggie Peyton

The name probably doesn’t ring a bell, but the actress playing her in Herbie: Fully Loaded might. Lindsay Lohan really captured the essence of the racer’s spirit in this charming romp about a sleazy-hot girl that races an anthropomorphic Volkswagen Beetle. She also was somehow able to beat fictional NASCAR champ Trip Murphy (played by Matt Dillon) in a race, which is hard to believe, because Lohan has a track record of piss-poor driving, but it’s still exhilarating to watch, nonetheless.

She would have placed higher on this list, but her character falls in love with Justin Long, which is ridiculous and improbable.

Seriously. He’s the worst.

6. Stuntman Mike

Death Proof has its share of detractors, but it’s hard not to like the sleazy, for-some-reason-evil baddie Stuntman Mike. He rocks a satin jacket, which is VERY important for reasons I will get into in the next entry. He’s got a car that’s death-proof, which is a pretty badass concept. He kills innocent women, which I’m not totally in favor of, but I’m willing to look past that to his bitchin’ jacket and suave way with the ladies.

If you haven’t seen Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, check it out immediately, but don’t get too attached to Stuntman Mike.

There have been so many young actors who have been in rehab that Hollywood might start installing red carpets at the local recovery centers. Pills, drugs, alcohol and other intoxicants have been part of the entertainment scene long before child star Judy Garland was kept working late by MGM management. Garland’s troubled history finally made her persona non grata in the industry, but these days a stint, or several, seems like just another Hollywood rite of passage. Here are some of the saddest and most surprising cases of young actors in rehab.

 

Drew Barrymore

The delightful Ms. Barrymore is probably the youngest actor who has been in rehab. At only thirteen she sought treatment after spending her late childhood starring in films and nightclubbing at Studio 54. In her autobiography Little Girl Lost, she described smoking marijuana at twelve and quickly progressing to cocaine. It took a suicide attempt and another stint in rehab at fourteen before Barrymore maintained her sobriety. Two decades later, she confesses to drinking the occasional glass of wine. She also balances an impressive acting career with behind-the-scenes work as a director and producer.

 

Mary-Kate Olsen

Young Actors Who Have Been in Rehab

Mary-Kate Olsen smoking

Few young actors begin their careers as early as Mary-Kate Olsen (born 1986), who was only nine months-old when she first shared the role of Michelle on Full House with her twin Ashley. After Full House ended its eight year run, the sisters formed a popular and profitable tween franchise with movies, specials and merchandising. Olsen had just celebrated her eighteenth birthday when she entered a Utah rehabilitation facility in 2004. Although tabloids pointed to drugs, her publicists insisted anorexia nervosa was the issue. A healthier Olsen emerged six weeks later, and there have been no return rehab stints. Olsen found solo acting success in some feature films and a recurring role of Showtime’s Weeds. She has also formed two fashion lines, The Row and Elizabeth and James with sister Ashley.

 

Corey Haim

Only 38 years-old when he overdosed in 2010, Corey Haim had entered rehab a total of fifteen times before his death. Haim, born in 1971, became a teen idol in the late 1980s, following his performances in Lucas and The Lost Boys. His lopsided smile and adorable face made him an ongoing cover boy for teen magazines like Tiger Beat. He later admitted that his party lifestyle led to a crack addiction during the filming of 1988’s License To Drive. Then, at the age of eighteen, he entered rehab. He did manage to quit cocaine, but unfortunately just swapped it for an addiction to prescription medications. He spent the next two decades trying to get clean, but was found to have procured 532 pills in the month before he died, including Valium, Vicodin and Xanax.

 

Lindsay Lohan

Young Actors Who Have Been in Rehab

Lindsay Lohan strung out

One child star who has helped give rehabilitation the reputation of a revolving door is Lindsay Lohan. Once a successful Disney star in wholesome flicks like The Parent Trap, she seemed to be handling the transition to adult roles with a sophisticated turn in Mean Girls. Her partying quickly overshadowed her early promise, as endless tabloid stories documented her love of the nightlife. Then, the California court system became involved as DUIs, car wrecks and other criminal incidents have piled up. Lohan’s status as an actress and a recovering addict remain uncertain.

 

Robert Downey Jr.

Young Actors Who Have Been in Rehab

Robert Downey Jr.'s mugshot

The most talented of the young actors who’ve been to rehab, or at least the most inspiring, is the Robert Downey Jr. He was just 22 when he made his first trip to rehab, following a Hollywood childhood where his director father reportedly gave him his first drugs at eight years-old. Downey’s long, tortured journey continued through drug dependence, jail stints, and very public falls off the wagon. His most astonishing drug-addled moment came in 1996 when he wandered into a neighbor’s house in Malibu and fell asleep in a child’s bed. After a year-long stint in Corcoran State Prison, Downey finally sobered up. He has since made a slow but steady climb back to the very top of the Hollywood heap, including starring in a blockbuster Ironman franchise and gaining an Oscar nomination for Tropic Thunder.

When you think socially outcast teenage girl, you think Megan Fox. Oh, you don’t? Yeah, I don’t either. Nobody does, god willing…

However, the rumor is that Fox is lobbying to play Carrie in MGM and Screen Gem’s remake of the Stephen King classic. I like looking at Fox as much as the next guy, especially her boobs area, but that casting would be more horrifying than anything they could put on the screen. Never mind that Fox is 25, far from high school. Fox looks like the type of girl who would tease you into an eating disorder – not a bullying victim. Also, two words: Jennifer’s Body.

Another actress who apparently wants the role? Lindsay Lohan. *Knocks Head Against Wall* (ShowBizSpy)

Al Pacino Cast Against Type In ‘Gotti: Three Generations’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/al-pacino-cast-against-type-in-gotti-three-generations/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/al-pacino-cast-against-type-in-gotti-three-generations/#comments Tue, 10 May 2011 15:57:24 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211265 Pacino as a gangster?

Al Pacino is known mostly as the kindly old man in movies like You Don’t Know Jack and Righteous Kill. So it may come as a surprise that he’s been cast in Gotti: Three Generations as, of all things, a professional criminal! More specifically, he’ll be playing Neil Dellacroce, an underboss for the Gambino crime family.

He’s joining John Travolta, Joe Pesci, and if her luck holds out, Lindsay Lohan, with Barry Levinson directing. If you’re having trouble visualizing Pacino playing a gangster, you’ll have to wait until late 2012 to see it happen. Me, I’ll just be watching S1m0ne again. He’s so funny in that.

Your loss!

UPDATE: Now TMZ is reporting that Marc Fiore was totally JKing and Lindsay is being considered for the part of John Gotti Jr.’s daughter-in-law that Kim Kardashian was previously being eyed for.

The producers of the movie Gotti: Three Generations just aren’t able to handle the supernova star power of Lindsay Lohan. Here’s one of them, Marc Fiore, in a statement:

“We are not talking any further about Lindsay playing Victoria. She is no longer being considered. The talks have stopped. We are going to meet with other people [for the role].”

Well let me tell YOU something, Marc Fiore. It’s your loss. Your loss! Lindsay Lohan doesn’t even want to play a stupid Gotti, so she’s glad that “the various demands of her management team just got out of control.” Glad!

The producers are also looking for a new director, after the previously attached Nick Cassavetes left to do other things. Perhaps he really wants to work with Lohan? The John Travolta-starring movie is scheduled to begin filming in the fall, provided that Lohan’s army of fans don’t riot to prevent this. (The Hollywood Reporter)

The post Lindsey Lohan Might Be Working With Joe Pesci On ‘Gotti: Three Generations’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The filmmakers behind the upcoming film Gotti: Three Generations are assembling a team of titans to surround John Travolta as John Gotti. One of those titans, Joe Pesci, is already signed on to play Angelo Ruggiero, and Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play Victoria Gotti. “In talks” presumably means buying her massive amounts of cocaine, but on the other hand, I’m an idiot.

The producers are also reportedly in talks with someone to play John Gotti, Jr., but aren’t “ready to announce the actor” who’s getting the part. Maybe James Franco? It wouldn’t be unheard of. Nick Cassavetes is directing all the characters shouting at each other from the point of view of Gotti’s son, so it will probably be something approaching a lead role. I hope it is Franco, he needs the work. (ComingSoon)

Though she was deemed unfit for porn, Lindsay Lohan‘s career isn’t completely dead. Photographer Tyler Shields wants Lohan for his Charles Manson biopic, Eyes Of A Dreamer, if she can fit the shooting in between her court appearances.

This is never going to happen. I know it. You know it. Tyler Shields knows it. But it’s a slow news morning, so let’s just keep writing about this. If she isn’t arrested, in the act of being arrested, or sleeping in, the role of Sharon Tate is hers. Tate, of course, was famously murdered by Manson and his followers in one of Hollywood’s darkest times. To stunt-cast the role of the upcoming actress seems in poor taste but Shields is aiming to manipulate.

“Sharon Tate was a movie star,” he says. “So I want [an actress who] you already have a backstory with. People have a backstory with someone like Lindsay. And I think it’s very relatable.”

“I’m just going to be directing people to do the craziest s— they’ve ever done,” he says. “[But] I’m going to find a way to do it where it doesn’t turn people off, but it gives you the feeling of it. I want this to really hit people in a really specific place.”

Yes. People do have a backstory with Lindsay, but I think it would help if the backstory wasn’t, “Hey! That’s the loopy bitch who sideswiped my car!!” (EW)

Talk show hosts should be a lot of things: quick witted, well spoken, affable, and maybe most importantly, persuasive. Jimmy Kimmel seems to at least be INCREDIBLY persuasive, which is evidenced in this clip from his post Oscar show last night entitled “Hottie Body Humpilates.” It seems as if he approached some of Hollywood’s most beautiful actresses (including Emily Blunt, Scarlett Johansson, Jessicas Alba and Biel, etc.) and said “be in my comedy video! You’ll pantomime having sex with a yoga ball!” I have no idea if they all owe him some giant favors, but they not only acquiesced, they SELL THIS BIT! Warning: it is very long, and a little confusing, and it ends up feeling like a toothless Tim and Eric sketch crossed with some passably clever wordplay, but it does feature Jessica Biel enthusiastically and frantically pounding away against a wall. So, there’s that! Creeps take note: wrap your lechery up in a comedic package and you’ll never catch any flak!

The post Screwed Up Lohan Family Screws With David Letterman appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Celebrity Problem Tornado Lindsay Lohan, who I think used to star in movies at some point, was supposed to make an appearance on ”Late Show With David Letterman“ to read the Top 10 List. That was what was announced, and that is what I believed.

Lohan’s been accused of stealing a $2,500 gold necklace, just the latest crime “Fully Loaded” Lohan has committed in a growing rap sheet of DUIs and drug possession arrests. The Letterman guest spot might have been the funniest thing she’s done since Mean Girls — which was released almost 7 years ago, or in “the long, long ago” in Lohan chronology.

Recently, the rug was pulled out from under Letterman when Lohan tweeted she wasn’t playing ball, adding:

I’m not sure how this happened.

I imagine after an all-night celebrity cocaine party at Charlie Sheen‘s house, you wouldn’t be sure how or why anything happened. Here’s how Letterman responded on the show. (You can watch it in the clip above.)

“So it turns out we were duped… I have no one to blame but myself, and boy, is my face red… [Deadpans:] I hope I didn’t embarrass you, Lindsay, and your family.”

Well, now we know who the mystery “duper” was. Her fist-fighting father Michael Lohan, no stranger to the inside of a jail cell himself, apologized for the debacle. Mr. Lohan told TMZ he made the booking with Lindsay’s approval, but when her entourage found out, the deal was immediately kaput.

“Anything positive that I bring into her life … [her people] try to nix it,” Michael Lohan said.

And that, my friends, is the story of how the Lohan clan turned Mr. Letterman’s life upside-down for one magical news cycle. (ReutersLA Times)

The rumor mill is at it again, cranking out specious yet saucy stories for us to speculate over. Today’s piece of questionable half-truth concerns Lindsay Lohan and her potential involvement as a cast member in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming Superman: Man of Steel. She’s, according to notorious bullshit artists TMZ, in talks with Snyder’s camp to play a major, non-Lois Lane role in the film, potentially the villainous Ursa. It remains to be seen whether or not this rumor has any validity. Between Lohan’s questionable reputation and TMZ’s penchant for bullshit, there’s no reason to take this news at face value, but if it’s true, it would be cool, right? For her? Look, we all saw Mean Girls, didn’t we? She was great in that. Eight years ago! You’re welcome for this “news” you’ve just been delivered. (Screen Rant)

Lindsay Lohan in happier times.

Poor Lindsay Lohan. Everyone knows she’s fallen on tough times, but now, it seems she can’t even find work as a porn star.

Lohan had landed the role of 70′s porn actress Linda Lovelace in Matthew Wilder’s Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story. But due to her ongoing legal troubles and drug problems, she has been dropped from the cast in favor of Malin Akerman. You know your career is in trouble when you’re too unreliable to play a 70′s porn star. But on the plus side, Malin Akerman, who you may remember as the chick wearing the skintight outfits in The Watchmen, is super hot. I guess that’s not much of a comfort to Lindsay, but it makes me feel better. (Deadline via Collider)

The post Review: ‘Machete’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Machete
R, 105 min., 2010
Cast: Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez, Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin with Don Johnson, Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, and Robert DeNiro
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis
Screenplay by Robert Rodriguez and Alvero Rodriguez

While Machete is one hilarious, madcap, blood-filled pinata party, it’s also one of the most politically charged action movies to come along this year.

The iconic big screen bad-ass Danny Trejo gets his much needed day in the sun at Machete, an ex- Mexican cop turned Texas day laborer who finds himself in the middle of the battle between borders, with double crossing politicians, vigilantes, cops, and cartels. All the while he’s becoming another legendary folk hero from the endless mind of Robert Rodriguez and the Troublemaker studio family.

Machete is joined by a cast that can slap and slice the face off of The Expendables – they can be labeled  like Sergio Leone‘s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.  The Good: the ultimate female revolution fighter from a taco truck Luz/She (Michelle Rodriguez in another one of her kick butt and still look sexy performances), INS agent sexpot Santana (Jessica Alba), and Priest (Cheech Marin showing up in his best Rodriguez movie cameo to date). The Bad: evil vigilante Texan Lt. Stillman (Don Johnson, at his sleazy cigar slinging best, carrying echoes of Henry Fonda’s villainous performance in Once Upon a Time in the West), racist tea bagger Senator McLaughlin (Robert DeNiro having fun as the guy you love to hate), scheming political assistant Booth (Jeff Fahey making us wonder why he isn’t cast in more movies as a screen villain), and Mexican drug lord Torrez (Steven Seagal taking everything so seriously and with hilarious end results). And The Ugly: drugged up bad girl turned religious savior April (Lindsay Lohan always down to satirize her own persona) and the famous worn and pockmarked face of Danny Trejo as Machete.

All these wacky characters and more face off in a blood-filled cannon of showdowns and confetti that will you have kicking, wincing, howling, whistling, and clapping for more.

Rodriguez, sharing his writer/director/cinematographer/editor/score chair with co-director Ethan Maniquis, script writer Alveno Rodriguez, editor Rebecca Rodriguez, and cinematographer Jimmy Lindsey. It’s a block party of filmmakers that bring a lot of energy and color to the creative table, creating an environment that is part grindhouse fun and part family affair.

As the idea of Machete came out of Rodriguez’s head 15 years ago during Desperado, we now see another possible tough character actor, Michelle Rodriguez, becoming another one of his modern day folk hero characters of SHE — a legendary Mexican freedom fighter or quasi female counter part to iconic Che Guevera. You know he is onto something here when Rodriguez’s character gets the audience roar of approval next to a bland Alba applause. It’s something to look forward to in the Troublemaker future of cartoon movies.

The movie itself is more fun watching than really talking about with all its beheading and rocket-filled low riders. The first part is the most uninhibited fun, with the mixture of grindhouse type violence with political undertones that include a running gag of xenophobic political ads, not unlike something Sarah Palin would pay for.

By the time the climax hits, there are so many characters and elements played out that they all collide in a Looney Tunes-type carnival ride of guns and cars that doesn’t come to a solid conclusion. It even seems that Machete is lost at times in the battle between characters and screen time.
Yet Rodriguez and crew give us a something to chew on as we face a time of terrible racism and actions, all the while punching it with one-of-a-kind performances and action moments.

Grade: B +

What the film lacks in the way of an original title it more than makes up for with off-the-wall cameos. Bobby Lee plays a character named Dickman, Michael Clarke Duncan plays a gay virgin, and Lindsay Lohan plays herself in this bizarre, most likely straight to video flick. Last I heard, Offer, a vocal opponent and former member of the Church of Scientology, had been hauled off to jail for punching a hooker in the face (supposedly in self-defense). I'm suprised that he's back, but I'm even more suprised that the Scientologists didn't put the kibosh on his film, considering their reach in Hollywood.

For Cinco de Mayo, Robert Rodriguez dropped a package off at the home of his AICN homies, and it turned out to be the "illegal" trailer for Machete hidden underneath a pound of tamales. Alright, I’m not certain about the tamales, but it’s how I deliver all of MY packages.

If you enjoyed the fake trailer for Machete attached to Grindhouse, you won’t be dissappointed by the trailer for the movie made from the trailer. It features a Mexican-hating Robert DeNiro, a Robert DeNiro hating Mexican Danny Trejo, a gun-licking nun Lindsay Lohan, Steven Seagal, and Jessica Alba with a perm. Also, Soothsayer Rodriguez managed to tap into a controversy that’s bubbling over in Arizona at this very moment, and he predicted that sh*t months ago! Way to make the zeitgiest your bitch, Robert.

Check out the trailer below. Machete slashes into theaters September 3, 2010.

Lindsay Lohan Taking On Linda Lovelace Role in ‘Inferno’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/lindsay-lohan-taking-on-linda-lovelace-role-in-inferno/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/lindsay-lohan-taking-on-linda-lovelace-role-in-inferno/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Perfect. Lindsay Lohan is officially set to play 70s porn star icon/oral pleasure pioneer Linda Lovelace in the biopic Inferno. The film's producer Walid Razaqi confirmed that Lohan secured the part, and that they'll be an official announcement at the Cannes Film Festival. Razaqi stated, "For at least a year, the director and I have gone back and forth imagining how awesome of a performance she could give if she was in the movie." Please be more specific, Walid. Were you guys hangin' down in the basement, passing the Sunny D and discussing Lohan's depth and range as an actor, or did one of you casually hold up a banana and say, "I bet Lindsay Lohan could take all of this."This isn't the first racy project Lohan has taken on since she entered Phase 2 of career suicide. She attempted to get asses in the seats again by playing a stripper in I Know Who Killed Me, and she'll appear topless in Machete just for the hay of it. Deep Throat seemed like a sensible next step.
