The Beard Stays, Conan’s New Ad for TBS Gig The Beard Stays, Conan’s New Ad for TBS Gig

We are very ardent Conan supporters. If we could post all of Coco’s twitter updates, we would. But that’s just not realistic. I would like to think that we’re more Conan supporters than we are Leno haters, but I don’t mind being both at the same time. So in order to spite Leno, we present to you Conan’s first print ad for “Conan” his new late night shot

Rick Moranis Might Come Out of Retirement for Ghostbusters 3 Rick Moranis Might Come Out of Retirement for Ghostbusters 3

The development of Ghostbusters 3 is questioned on a daily basis. The last time I checked, Bill Murray was having no part of it. But now there have been reports that Rick Moranis might return for this franchise with Sigourney Weaver as well. Moranis has been out of the game since 1996, but we’ll always remember him as Louis Tully in Ghostbusters and Wayne Szalinski in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids.

If you weren’t doing that already, then let this trailer get you in the mood. It’s so easy to go viral these days. All you have to do is take something that everyone cherishes and adores, and then rob it of all its gravity.

Marvel To Cast Asian Character… as Asian! Marvel To Cast Asian Character… as Asian!

Marvel Studios recently amended the casting call for its film adaptation of Runaways, explicitly calling for Asian-American actresses to play Nico Minoru. Hollywood may yet have a soul.

Spiderman the Musical Spiderman the Musical

Showbusiness has long been an industry of incestuous wheeling and dealing and blatant stealing. So, with a thirst for all things tried and true, Broadway has decided to bank on two of the most popular genres to date, combining them into a rip off of colossal proportions. Ladies and gentleman, I give you, Spider-Man…THE MUSICAL.

How Does Snooki Reading in the Park Make You Feel?

Considering the book that she’s reading, I am almost convinced that she’s pretty damn smart. Everyone likes to throw out that she’s a public nuisance, the next Lindsay Lohan, etc. If she is as dumb as she portrays herself to be, then that argument is like saying water is wet. But if Snooki is just a role being played by Nikki Polizzi, then that book is nothing more than

Christina Hendricks Joins Cast of ‘Drive’, Puts Our Stick Shifts in Overdrive Christina Hendricks Joins Cast of ‘Drive’, Puts Our Stick Shifts in Overdrive

The buxom Mad Men star has joined a cast of respected actors in Drive, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. And if that doesn’t excite you, the cast sure will. They managed to snatch a collection of actors who care dearly about their careers (in a good way) including: Ryan Gosling, Albert Brooks, Bryan Cranston, Oscar Isaacs, and Carey Mulligan.

Marlons Wayans News Makes My Day Marlons Wayans News Makes My Day

I’m a huge Wayans Brothers fan. I grew up with them as my main source of comedic intake from In Living Color all the way to The Wayans Brothers. For those of you who weren’t familiar with these shows in your youth, they were the funniest guys in the room for about 10 years.

Everything Chris Klein Says in “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li” Everything Chris Klein Says in “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li”

I’m going to post this up as a tribute to the stand-up guy that Chris Klein played in American Pie.  Apparently, his acting has evolved to the point where there’s a montage commemorating his stellar performance in the supremely underrated Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li.  I’m using hyperbole when I say “supremely underrated” but not when I say “stellar performance.”

Ruben Fleischer Gives Aways Some Details on the Zombieland Sequel Ruben Fleischer Gives Aways Some Details on the Zombieland Sequel

Ruben Fleischer was on set to discuss his latest pizza delivery comedy, 30 Minutes or Less, starring Jesse Eisenberg, who was also in Zombieland. And while I’m sure the media was pumped to hear about an upcoming comedy project that no one knows anything about, they were more than keen to listen in on the details Fleischer let go about Zombieland 2.

January Jones as Emma Frost on the Set of X-Men First Class

When I mentioned before that Matthew Vaughn gets a pass on this blog, I meant it. In that spirit, the first images of January Jones as Emma Frost in X-Men First Class, and the first images I’ve seen from this movie, in general, have been making the rounds. It looks like they’ve got her color scheme correct, but I’m sure we could all benefit seeing a little bit more

Sad Don Draper Time

The newest meme hits the internet at lightning fast speed. Inspired by the latest episode of Mad Men, there’s obviously no better way to express how we feel about anything than with Sad Don Draper. He’s crying at 9/11, inaugurations, and baby juggalo funerals.

Katee Sackhoff Finds Work! Katee Sackhoff Finds Work!

This is how we make our favorite shows live on. We follow the careers of every actor/actress who took part in it, even if their current or future project bares no sort of semblance to the show that made them all great. So consider this more of an homage to Battlestar Galactica and 24 than an actual backing of support for Katee Sackhoff’s recent casting in CSI.

Sackhoff was initially the producers’ first

Here’s Your Viral Vid of the Day: The Amazing Race Trailer

Having a lackluster morning? Let the genius from a recently leaked Amazing Race promo trailer cheer you up. Nope, I’m not being sarcastic. This clip is genius and whoever decided that it would make for great promo material is genius.

And to CBS, whoever is in charge of your twitter account, I would like to give him a chest bump.

Laurence Belcher is Your New Charles Xavier – Toddler Edition Laurence Belcher is Your New Charles Xavier – Toddler Edition

Looks like this kid on the left is going to be playing a Young Charles Xavier in X-Men First Class. I’m going to assume that Matthew Vaughn is going to take this reboot way back into time. Perhaps we’ll see a Young Charles Xavier and a Young Magneto lead parallel lives that will converge and clash later in the film. That sounds a lot like Star Trek, doesn’t it?
