A couple of weeks ago we watched comedian/writer Seth MacFarlane host the 38th season premiere of Saturday Night Live and today we learn that he will be hosting the 85th Academy Awards next February. Clearly someone at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences was impressed with what they saw on SNL earlier this month (or maybe they just really loved the movie Ted) because MacFarlane‘s casting seems to have come from out of the blue (ie. he’s not a name we usually hear when discussions about who will host the Oscars begin). Click below to learn all the reported deets of Seth‘s latest and greatest hosting gig. More »
A Lot Of People Are Mad
Lifetime channel and the History channel are teaming up to take over the world. Or, at least they’re teaming up to widen their demographics. The two A&E Networks are coming together to produce a Bonnie & Clyde miniseries and they want Miley Cyrus on board. Not everyone seems thrilled about the former Disney star taking on the role of original ride-or-die chick Bonnie, but it looks like it’s happening either way! Click inside to learn more.
But Angela Lansbury's Still In!
Bummer news, guys. A little while back we heard reports about The Grand Budapest Hotel, a new Wes Anderson movie that would star Johnny Depp. I thought all (or at least one) of my dreams had come true, but Wes Anderson just did an interview with the Huffington Post denying Johnny Depp‘s involvement. Honestly? It hurts to hear this, ya know? It just hurts. Unfortunate deets inside.
Good News Or Bad News?
Okay y’all. A while back I vowed never to report on Fifty Shades Of Grey again… until I’d read the book. So you know what this means! I finally found some time for the mommy porn to end all mommy porn and based on everything everyone told me about the book (good, bad, and anti-feminist) I was not disappointed. And I’m so excited to talk about the book and the forthcoming movie now that I have an actual foundation, lol. So here’s the deal. Ryan Gosling fans will either be really really happy, or really really sad to hear that the actor is not one of the frontrunners for the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, as was previously reported. Click inside to learn more from author E.L. James who recently denied these rumors in an interview with Ryan Seacrest.
Is The 'Black Swan' Director On Board?
Oscar-winner Natalie Portman has a few exciting film projects in the works, including Knight Of Cups which we heard about a couple of months back. We saw pics of Natalie during filming, frolicking on the beach with co-star Christian Bale and I thought that was kind of awesome. But now we’ve got more non-Christian-related movie news for Natalie. It looks like the actress is being sought after for a new biopic on former first lady and American icon, Jackie Kennedy. Now that’s kind of a big deal. Click inside for more!
Seriously. The Coolest.
Tobey Maguire. Elizabeth Banks. Laura Linney. Ray Liotta (I don’t care how many people make fun of him, he is Goodfellas and Blow and Corrina, Corrina, and everything else awesome in this world). Oh and Kerry ARE YOU effing KIDDING ME Washington?!?! Seriously. I need this movie in my life. Stat! The trailer is totally weird and quirky and indie and awkward and I would watch anything with any of these characters individually so putting them all together in one movie is just tops! Agh! I cannot believe Tobey Maguire and Kerry Washington just made out! Whoops, belated spoiler alert! Watch the trailer now; it will please me. I mean you.
Okay, now the “bad news” is that the film had a delayed release which is usually a sign that studios were iffy about it. With such an eclectic cast I can see how this movie ultimately… may not work. But so what, lol?! I’m still pumped and– critics and mixed reviews be damned– I’m seeing this!
Playing One Of The Good Guys... Or Not?
Honestly? Can Django Unchained just come out already? This is not one of those movies where the slow build-up is making me more excited; I just want to see it now! But it’s my job to bring y’all the good (and sometimes bad) news o’ the day and today I’m happy to report that director Quentin Tarantino (who’s known for making the occasional cameo in his movies) will be making an appearance in Django Unchained, his upcoming slave narrative-esque revenge film.

Miley Acts Up
Earlier this year it was reported that Miley Cyrus would be making a guest appearance on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. Today we get our first look at Miley on the show. CBS has released a few promo images from Miley‘s upcoming episode and, as you can see below, she shares quite a few scenes with newest castmember Ashton Kutcher. You may recall that it was reported that Miley will be playing the new girlfriend of the kid on the show but from the look of these photos, Miley‘s character only has eyes for Ashton‘s character.
