Martial Arts Star Tony Jaa Becomes a Buddhist Monk
Tuesday, June 1 by

Martial Arts star Tony Jaa, best known for his work in the film Ong-Bak, has joined a Buddhist Monastery in Surin, Thailand. The move comes after a failed attempt at directing the first Ong-Bak sequel, and the poor box-office showing of Ong-Bak 3. The now bald actor took his vows on May 28th and will serve as a monk for an unknown amount of time.I sincerely hope that this trend makes its way to Hollywood.  After the disappointing failure of Sex and the City 2, it would be nice to see the cast forced to join a Catholic convent deep in the Italian back country, or to have Shia LaBeouf commit ritual suicide to alleviate the shame he feels for Indiana Jones 4 and Transformers 2. God be praised! (SlashFilm)

Ong Bak 2: The Beginning Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersOh man… Tony Jaa is back, and you know this one is gonna be better than the first Ong Bak flick 'cos there are waaay more elephants this time around and they're Jaa's energy source.  (It was said he exploded three silhouetted heads in a childhood screening of Dumbo.)  The teaser does its job not giving too much in the way of story (you can check out the synopsis after the jump) but that's moot.  I'm of the mindset that the thinner the plot, the more likely Tony Jaa can use it to slice someone's scrotum off (after setting it on fire, of course).Even if you have crippling ADD, try to stay focused til the end of the trailer, where some nefarious villain type laughs heartily as if he were hearing Zack Galifianakis say "ritard" in The Hangover for the first time.Here are today's top links to make you feel all ri-tarded inside: Sophie Turner In A Smorgasbord Of Skimpy Outfits (Gorillamask)Suggestions For The New Alien Movie (Holytaco)Twilight Author Accused Of Stealing From 15 Year Old Girl… Makes Sense (Filmdrunk)55 Photos, 110 Babes, Lots Of Double Vision (Manofest)Holy Crap… 4 In 1 Game Table Is Awesome (Walyou)There's Already A Movie Trailer For The True Story Of A First Round 2009 NFL Draft Pick (Pajiba)7 Old Songs That Would Make Eminem Blush (Cracked)Apparently It's "Point Out How Awesome Betty White Is" Day On The Internet (Sickpigs)18 Things You Didn't Know About Megan Fox (Coedmagazine)Jessica Alba Is Hot Again In Swimsuits (Celebjihad)How To Get With A Hot Bartender (Mademan)Fedor Probably Won't Get Immediate Title Shot (Cagepotato)Where Are They Now?  The Cast Of Menace II Society (Unreality)Boozing On A Budget (Asylum)Bad Boy Golfer John Daly Weighs In On Health Care Issues (Bustedcoverage)Memorable Movie Dance-Offs (Uncoached)True Confessions From Online Dating Hell (Regretfulmorning)Mad Your Car Got Towed?
