The moustache has played an important role throughout cinema history. In the early days of silent film, the facial hair was often used to brand a character as evil. Over time, moustaches found their way onto the faces of movie heroes such as Errol Flynn and Clark Gable. Today, they can still be found on a wide range of characters, but as in the early days, the stache is still used to add an aura of intimidation to characters.

I bet you’re wondering why the hell I’m going on and on about moustaches. Well I’ll tell you why, smart ass. We’re gearing up for Movember, and we’re encouraging our readers to do the same. The rules are easy: Go here and sign up with Break and Movember. Start November 1st clean shaven, then proceed to grow a killer Moustache, all while raising funds for men’s health. Last year, Movember raised $81 million for prostate research, and this year we plan on helping them break that record. So sign up today, and help make a difference.

Then, when you’re done with that, help make a difference in my paycheck by checking out the 9 most intimidating moustaches of all time.

Borat – Borat

Though Borat’s moustache may not be intimidating in the sense of manliness or machismo, I think you’ll find him quite intimidating when he comes at you with a plastic bag full of feces.

Ron Burgundy – Anchorman

Ron Burgundy is the number one local newscaster in 1970′s San Diego and he owes a lot of that to his mythical, Scotch-scented moustache. In addition to “a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they” make “Sinatra look like a hobo,” his moustache is also a powerful aphrodisiac. Hairs from his moustache brush are incredibly sought after to be used in love potions and fertility centers around the world. Everything look how good he looks!!

Peter Mitchell – Three Men and a Little Lady

Tom Selleck’s moustache is very different from the intimidators on this list. But that doesn’t mean you should rule it out. There is one category in which it dominates — the ladies. No woman is free to resist the course tufts upon Selleck’s upper-lip, and Nancy Travis’s Sylvia Bennington was no exception. Selleck’s moustache swooped in and stole her away from the altar just as she was about to marry a rich, stuffy but ultimately bald-faced British prick. It’s godly, really.

Some film roles are so iconic that the actor who plays the part becomes synonymous with the character. Harrison Ford is Han Solo. Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminator. Michael J. Fox is Marty McFly. But if a few things had turned out differently, these characters could have ended up being played by other actors. Whether or not the alternatives would have been successful will never be known, but it’s fun to look back at these casting almosts and wonder “what if?”

Source

Brad Pitt – The Shawshank Redemption

Superstar Brad Pitt reportedly turned down the role of Tommy Williams, the brash young burglar who claims to have information exonerating Andy Dufresne. Instead, the role went to actor Gil Bellows, and Brad Pitt landed a role playing house with a crazy bi-sexual woman and a pan-ethnic smorgasbord of children.

David LettermanAirplane

As much as I like both David Letterman and Airplane, pairing them together just seems like a bad idea, especially considering Letterman was auditioning for the lead role of Ted Striker, which ultimately went to Robert Hays. I can think of at least ten reasons why that would have been a bad idea.

Anne Hathaway – Knocked Up

Long before Anne Hathaway was prepping for her upcoming role as Cat Woman or bombing at the Oscars, she was up for the lead female role in Knocked Up. Apparently, she backed out because she felt the film’s use of a prosthetic vagina was in bad taste. Katherine Heigl ended up getting the role. Apparently, she loves fake vaginas.

Sylvester Stalone & Christopher WalkenStar Wars

Both of these iconic actors auditioned for the part of Han Solo. While it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Harrison Ford in the role, I have to say that I think Christopher Walken might have pulled it off. If nothing else, the audition inspired the classic SNL sketch featured above.

Sean Penn – Fight Club

Brad Pitt owned the role of Tyler Durdan in Fight Club, but Sean Penn almost ended up playing the deranged alter-ego. And while I’m sure Penn could have easily covered the character’s insanity, I’m not sure that he could have pulled off the likability that Pitt brought to the role.

Ian McKellen – Harry Potter

Sir Ian McKellen was once in the running for the part of Dumbledore. I’m sure the actor would have been great in the role, but perhaps it’s for the best that he didn’t make it. After all, I’d hate to see such a versatile actor get typecast as a wizard.

Eric Stoltz – Back to the Future

It’s hard to imagine Back to the Future without Michael J. Fox. But it almost happened. In fact, Eric Stoltz was originally cast as Marty McFly, and filmed for several weeks before the director decided to pull the plug and start over with Fox.

Mark Ruffalo – Signs

Can you imagine Mark Ruffalo playing the role of Merrill Hess instead of Joaquin Phoenix? I can. They could have used the reanimated corpse of Humphrey Bogart, and the movie still would have sucked.

Chris Farley – Shrek

Mike Myers Scottish accent is synonymous with the character of Shrek. But Chris Farley was originally cast in the role, and actually recoded some dialogue before his untimely death. Had he lived, I’m not 100% that the franchise would have been as successful, but who knows.

Tom Selleck – Raiders of the Lost Ark

If this role had gone to Tom Selleck instead of Harrison Ford, would Indian Jones have worn a mustache? Or conversely, would Selleck have had to shave his signature facial hair? My puny mind is barley able to fathom such troubling alternate histories.

Will Smith – The Matrix

Will Smith turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix. While the film was wildly successful, Smith says he has no regrets, since he thinks Keanu Reeves nailed the part. Besides, casting Smith alongside Laurence Fishburne would have broken the rules in regard to the number of badass black dudes in the same film. It’s a SAG thing.

O.J. Simpson – Terminator

Clearly, Arnold Schwarzenegger was born to play The Terminator. But even so, the producers were forced to go through the motions and have auditions for the part. O.J. Simpson was supposedly a contender, but his nice guy image prevented him from landing such a dark role. Irony, thy name is Hollywood.

10 Greatest Entertainment Related Memes of 2010 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/10-greatest-entertainment-related-memes-of-2010/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/10-greatest-entertainment-related-memes-of-2010/#comments Wed, 29 Dec 2010 12:17:05 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=13542 While meme topics are as varied as the Internet itself, film and television are continual sources of inspiration.

From Antoine Dodson getting his people snatched up, to the infamous “Double Rainbow,” it’s been a hell of a year for Internet memes. Countless man-hours have been wasted both creating and consuming these pointless, yet hilarious endeavors. And while meme topics are as varied as the Internet itself, film and television are continual sources of inspiration. With that in mind, here are the 10 greatest entertainment-related memes of 2010.

Selleck Waterfall Sandwich

Selleck Waterfall Sandwich is exactly what it sounds like: a website with various pictures of actor Tom Selleck standing next to both waterfalls and sandwiches. Apparently the site’s creator knew there was a need for such a thing on the Internet, and the Internet thanked him with tons of traffic. The meme also managed to bring Tom Selleck back into the limelight in a way that no cheesy CBS cop-drama ever could.

Selleck Waterfall Sandwhich 1 – “Blue Bloods” 0

Prancing Cera

People have a love-hate relationship with Michael Cera. On the one hand, “Arrested Development” was fun to watch. On the other, Michael Cera getting bludgeoned with a pipe would be fun to watch, too. This meme fills the void between those two extremes.

A picture of Cera jumping between two platforms in Norway was the inspiration, and since it hit the net, hundreds of people have used Photoshop to make the actor prance through odd and often dangerous situations. Why is he running? Is he in danger? Will he die? The lack of a definitive answer only adds to the intrigue.

Sad Don Draper

Literally speaking, it was a pretty sad year for Internet memes. Pictures of actors looking sad struck a chord, and led to some incredibly creative content. One example is Sad Don Draper. Once this still of the”Mad Men” character made the rounds, it was only a matter of time until Draper’s face ended up in all sorts of weird places.

The Snooki Crasher

Is “Jersey Shore” still on the air? Is Snooki dead yet? Yes and no? Oh, then while we wait, let’s enjoy these Photoshopped images of America’s favorite guidette troll popping up in places she doesn’t belong. It’s not as dirty as it sounds.

Isaiah Mustafa: Old Spice

Unlike the other items on this list, Isaiah Mustafa‘s Old Spice ads are less of an organic outgrowth of the Internet and more of an ingenious marketing ploy to sell deodorant. Even so, a good idea, is a good idea, and the various videos the company made in reply to Twitter and Facebook questions became more popular than the original commercials. It also led to Mustafa landing movie and television gigs. If that doesn’t pan out, he can always work at county fairs charging $10 a pop to say “Hello Ladies” on people’s voicemails. It works for the “Wussup” guys.

Hugh Jackman Can Ride Anything

When actor Hugh Jackman was injured while using a zip-line on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” you knew it was only a matter of time before the net responded via Photoshop. After all, that blue-sky background might as well be a green screen. This meme is a relative newcomer, so we may not even see it peak until 2011.

Inception Multi-Panes

Did the serious acting and bizarre dreamscapes of Inception lend itself to the multi-pane format, or did the film’s popularity simply cause a flood of these comic-style jokes? Who gives a shit. Either way, they’re really funny.

LOL Mel

2010 saw Mel Gibson lapse back into his old ways. A series of violent, racist voicemails were released to the tabloids, in which the actor demanded blowjobs from and threatened to kill his now ex-girl friend. Sounds like a typical day at the Screen Junkies office, but I guess it made for a pretty big P.R. problem for ol’ Mel. However, on the plus side, people used the tapes as an excuse to spice up dialogue from Gibson’s older films.

Strutting Leo

This is the second Inception-inspired meme to crack the top ten. When a random picture of Leo walking confidently around the set was posted on line, it didn’t take long for the actor to turn up strutting his stuff in some very peculiar locations.

Jesus, how many different ways can I say the same thing? Photoshop + Weird Places = Meme.

Sad Keanu

Show of hands: how many of you have actually seen a Keanu Reeves film made in the past five years? Now, raise your hands if you’ve seen a picture of Sad Keanu? Exactly.

Sad Keanu was arguably the biggest meme of the year, and it’s easy to see why. From eating birds to hanging out with Ro Paul, Sad Keanu took the net on amazing journey. Plus, he also inspired this song, which never fails to bring a tear to my eye.

Tom Selleck Confirms ‘Three Men and an Unnecessary Sequel’ Rumors http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-selleck-confirms-three-men-and-an-unnecessary-sequel-rumors/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-selleck-confirms-three-men-and-an-unnecessary-sequel-rumors/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Why are these dudes still living together? Actor Tom Selleck confirmed that Disney is attempting to move forward on a third installment in the Three Men series. For those of you born after 1992, this refers to a popular 80's movie (Three Men and a Baby) and its disappointing, midget-porn sequel (Three Men and a Little Lady) co-starring Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson. Make your own Steve Guttenberg joke, cause I like the guy. "It is true that Disney checked my availability," Selleck told the site. "And I know they checked Ted's and Steve's, and then had a script written, I think tentatively called 'Three Men and a Bride,' which kind of says it all [about the story]." I'm trying really hard not to be negative, but the "baby" from the film is now in her mid twenties, and no one besides my friend Jon wants to see a girl in her 20's "accidentally" pee on Ted Danson. I'm not even sure Netflix can legally send something like that through the mail.  While we're at it, why not just make Adventures in Babysitting: The Next Generation, Good Evening Vietnam, or Mannequin: The Revenge.* (ComingSoon)*These are all real pitches. I demand an executive producer credit and 5% of both the domestic and international box-office.

Why are these dudes still living together?

Actor Tom Selleck confirmed that Disney is attempting to move forward on a third installment in the Three Men series. For those of you born after 1992, this refers to a popular 80′s movie (Three Men and a Baby) and its disappointing, midget-porn sequel (Three Men and a Little Lady) co-starring Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson. Make your own Steve Guttenberg joke, cause I like the guy.

"It is true that Disney checked my availability," Selleck told the site. "And I know they checked Ted’s and Steve’s, and then had a script written, I think tentatively called ‘Three Men and a Bride,’ which kind of says it all [about the story]."
