As Melissa McCarthy‘s transformation nears the end of its cycle, the ancient scrolls prophecy that she shall ride a Segway with the dawn of the Fourth Blood Moon. I’m not certain that Tammy involves a plot of any kind but it does give Melissa McCarthy the opportunity to run around, fall down, dance to Coolio and ride a jet ski in a silly way. They were going to title the movie that but had trouble getting it to fit on a poster.

DJ Flula Remixes The Cast Of ‘Jeff Who Lives At Home’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/dj-flula-remixes-the-cast-of-jeff-who-lives-at-home/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/dj-flula-remixes-the-cast-of-jeff-who-lives-at-home/#comments Wed, 14 Mar 2012 19:11:04 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=247453 It's the greatest techno song sampled from a movie press junket that I've ever heard.

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.

9 Celebrities With Really Weird Hobbies http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-celebrities-with-really-weird-hobbies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-celebrities-with-really-weird-hobbies/#comments Fri, 02 Dec 2011 15:00:01 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=238382 None of them collect orphan tears like I do.

The post 9 Celebrities With Really Weird Hobbies appeared first on Screen Junkies.

News broke yesterday that Nicolas Cage sold his Superman comic (Action Comics #1, for the aficionados out there) for $2.1 million. Some people will be surprised to learn that Nic Cage is an avid comic collector, others won’t be because he’s something of a comic book character himself. Despite his best efforts, Cage doesn’t have the market cornered on weird celebrity hobbies. Rather, he’s joined by quite a few folks who unwind with everything from typewriters to ping-pong to tree-climbing.

Celebrities! They’re weird like us!

Tom Hanks – 1940’s Typewriters

“I have almost 200 old portable manual typewriters. Most of them are actually working and I keep them rotating.”

Is there a more Tom Hanks-like hobby than collecting old typewriters? That was rhetorical. There is not. That’s awesome. I was hoping that a guy like Hanks would have some weird hobby, like collecting Nazi flatware like Chris Cooper did in American Beauty, but then I remembered that Hanks LOVES World War II, and even that wouldn’t be very weird. Tom Hanks is physically incapable of doing anything that isn’t adorable.

Simon Cowell – Climbing Trees

Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of background here, but on a press call, Simon Cowell just mentioned offhand that he likes to climb trees. Like, a lot. In fact, his exact quote was “I climb trees daily. It’s like a ritual.” I am just imagining him sitting atop a beautiful oak while Ruben Studdard and Adam Lambert are scrambling at the bottom, looking for footholds. In my imagination, Ruben is also crying a lot because he’s scared of heights.

Rod Stewart – Model Trains

Granted, this hobby isn’t all that strange, but it seems extremely out of place for a guy like Rod Stewart.

The Bobby Baccalieri of celebrities, when he’s not buying professional soccer teams, Rod Stewart likes to take his mind off the fact that his daughter is friends with Paris Hilton by building model railways. He was actually featured on the cover of Model Railroader with his recreation of Grand Central Station, which even features little people in 1940’s garb and boasts 100 feet of railroad. It’s hard to make fun of this hobby when he’s had the career he’s had. In fact, he manages to make building model railroads kind of rock and roll. Not bad, Rod.

‘Snitch’ To FINALLY Pair Up The Rock And Susan Sarandon? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/snitch-to-finally-pair-up-the-rock-and-susan-sarandon/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/snitch-to-finally-pair-up-the-rock-and-susan-sarandon/#comments Wed, 28 Sep 2011 00:17:13 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=230290 It makes sense, cause I've always considered The Rock to be the thinking man's Tim Robbins.

Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming film, Snitch, follows a father who must choose between going undercover to lessen his son’s prison sentence or watching him languish in behind bars. Word is the film may be getting some help in the acting department, as Susan Sarandon is rumored to play a US attorney who views the case as a career booster.

Bummer. I thought she was cast to play a more mature Salt-like character.

If this pairing sounds amazing to you, a) you’re a weirdo, and b) you shouldn’t get too excited too soon, as Sarandon has a pretty full dance card with I Hate You, Dad, Cloud Atlas, The Company You Keep, and Gently Down The Stream. Snitch would follow those projects, so don’t look for it to start with her for another year or so.

‘I Hate You, Dad’ Finds Susan Sarandon Both Sexy And Intellectual http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/i-hate-you-dad-finds-susan-sarandon-both-sexy-and-intellectual/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/i-hate-you-dad-finds-susan-sarandon-both-sexy-and-intellectual/#comments Wed, 01 Jun 2011 19:21:18 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=214282 Sarandon is going to play Samberg's mom, just like she does in all those SNL Digital Shorts.

I Hate You, Dad has found its sexy teacher, and it’s none other than…Susan Sarandon.

They got the teacher part right.

Sarandon has decided to join the motley crew that is this Adam Sandler project’s cast. She joins Sandler, Andy Samberg, Ian Ziering, and, of course, Vanilla Ice. The Hollywood Reporter states that she will play a teacher who we later find out is Samberg’s mother. (Hey, they didn’t give us a spoiler alert, so we’re not giving you one. It’s a Sandler movie. There will be no surprises.)

Apparently, the role is a major one that the studio had a special interest in casting perfectly. You have to give it up for a lady who’s been playing “hot older woman” for almost 25 years. It’s kind of freaky, actually. Also in talks are James Caan, Milo Ventimiglia, Tony Orlando (?), and Dan Patrick (???). This is shaping up to make Little Nicky look like a responsible, well-made film.

I Hate You, Dad will film in Boston this summer and will probably host the strangest wrap party ever.

Rapper Drake Plans To Blandly Star In ‘Arbitrage’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rapper-drake-plans-to-blandly-star-in-arbitrage/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rapper-drake-plans-to-blandly-star-in-arbitrage/#comments Sat, 22 Jan 2011 01:51:49 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21536 The Fresh Prince of Bel-Lazy Eyes is looking to add a second movie role to his filmography.

Drake may not have a lot of different facial expressions, but he does get a lot of work done. From Degrassi: The Next Generation to #1 hit singles, it seems like there’s nothing the milquetoast toast of the music world hasn’t done. Now The Fresh Prince of Bel-Lazy Eyes is looking to add a second movie role to his filmography.

Arbitrage is an indie film written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki (“The Outsider”), and Drake may co-star with Eva Green and Susan Sarandon. The film is about a shifty hedge fund manager trying to pawn off his about-to-collapse empire to an unsuspecting bank before it’s too late, and a lot of bad shit happens to him.

No word yet on what character Drake plays, but we bet he’s described in the script as “smooth.” When you want so smooth, you kinda get drowsy looking at him, you go to Drake. If he got Bill Murray to mentor him though, that might be a game changer. (TheWrap)
