Jack Black May Play The Lead In The ‘Goosebumps’ Movie

Okay, I'm Into It
The 22nd Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

Back in March we learned that a movie based on the children’s horror book series Goosebumps was officially in the works. On the one hand, it’s definitely an exciting prospect, but we’ve all had that experience where Hollywood kinda, sorta destroys a childhood experience for us– so there’s definitely some cause for concern here. Actually, I’d totally forgotten about the project until I learned that Jack Black was negotiating with the studio to play the lead (an R.L. Stine-type character) in the movie. Click inside for more!

A Little Research

The TV Guide

My Wednesday was a fairly quiet one for me. After the run of bizzy days I’ve enjoyed lately, I knew that I was gonna wanna take it real easy yesterday. I only ventured out after dark once the sun went down to avoid melting in the sweltering heat so that I could take care of a few errands. I made my way out to The Grove to see if I could find a wedding outfit for my friend’s Loy and Ryan’s upcoming nuptials and then I paid a visit to Barnes & Noble to peruse the Tokyo guidebooks. I am happy to reveal that I was successful in finding most of my wedding outfit at Top Man (my fave new clothing store) but I wasn’t quite successful in finding a suitable guidebook. More »

Whenever someone attempts to translate a really good book into a really good play, or film, or television show there’s always this great fear that it just won’t work. But every once in a while something cool happens, which is why I’m gonna keep hope alive for this new Les Misérables-based television show that’s coming to Fox. Sigh. Click inside for more!

Aziz Ansari Just Scored A $3.5 Million Book Deal

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day

So, I won’t get into details, but suffice it to say that there’s a certain member of my family who is obsessed with Aziz Ansari to no end, and has succeeded in infecting me with said obsession. I’ve seen the stand-up shows (including that episode of Bob’s Burgers I just watched where he voices some video game kid/god), and everything he’s in or on is a must-watch around here. Bottom line, Aziz is everything and I’m excited about everything he does. Which is why I was psyched to hear that he’s writing a book… LMAO. Cannot. Wait. Click inside for more!
