But only for a "small character" for "a couple of episodes"
SO, remember how back in 2013 we first learned that Jessica Lange had decided that she was ready to leave American Horror Story … and in March of this year, when Jessica reaffirmed publicly that she is “out” of the show and wouldn’t be returning. WELL, it would appear that she has had a change of heart. In a new interview, Lange confesses that she is open to returning to AHS if Ryan Murphy came to her with a “small character” that would only be featred on the show in “a couple of episodes” … which means, undoubtedly, that Ryan Murphy is currently writing a small character role for her so that she can appear in a couple episodes of the forthcoming season of American Horror Story: Hotel.

Bustin' makes her feel good
Earlier today we learned that filming production was due to begin today on the set of the female-led remake of Ghostbusters. Right now we get to see the first photos of actress Kirsten Wiig on the Boston, MA set of Ghostbusters filming her first scenes for the movie. As you may recall, I mentioned earlier that Wiig is rumored to play a Columbia University professor who gets kicked out of her university job due to her belief that ghosts are real. She enlists the aid of her co-stars (Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon) to start busting ghosts in NYC to prove that hey exist. There isn’t a lot of ghostly action featured in these first set photos but it is fun to see Kristen in character filming her scenes. She always wears the best wigs. I can’t wait to see more from the set.
Earlier this month it was reported that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards will be demoted (or cut out entirely) on the upcoming new season of the Bravo reality TV series and at the time, I figured the writing was on the wall for her BFF and RHOBH co-star Brandi Glanville. Brandi has been a constant source of conflict for every other person on the show for years now, save for Kim. When it was announced that Kim was being demoted (or fired, it’s not clear yet), I figured we’d be hearing similar news about Brandi … and today, that news has come. TMZ is reporting that Bravo has decided to axe Brandi because, well, she doesn’t really offer anything at all to the show. I have to say, I think firing Brandi from RHOBH is way overdue, she will not be missed by me. More »
You are very welcome
Zac Efron and Pitch Perfect star Adam Devine have been spending some time in Hawai’i recently filming scenes for their new movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. As you can see below, the guys got all squeezed into skintight, very form-fitting wrestling singlets that give us a pretty good feel for what they are packing in their pants. Now, keep in mind, wrestling singlets are very tight and, therefore, they can be very unforgiving when it comes to truly showcasing the male form … so it might be wise not to judge too harshly based on what you see in the photos below. That being said, what are you waiting for? You know you wanna see what Zac Efron looks like all squeezed into a skintight wrestling singlet, don’t you? More »
Um ... ok.
In the wake of the embarrassing implosion of E!‘s Fashion Police after Giuliana Rancic made that offensively racist joke about Zendaya‘s hair, which resulted in both Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffin quitting the show as co-hosts, E! decided to pull Fashion Police off the air for a while so that they could figure out what to do next. After the show got yanked, you may recall, Joan Rivers‘s daughter Melissa Rivers gave an interview where she proclaimed that Kathy Griffin “shit all over” her mother’s legacy by letting Fashion Police go down the toilet. Today we learn that E! has finally decided how to move forward with Fashion Police … they have decided to bring Melissa Rivers on as one of the permanent co-hosts. HMMM. More »
Is the world ready for the first ginger Bond?
Remember back in December when rumors started to swirl that actor Idris Elba might be offered the role of James Bond after Daniel Craig passes the mantle of 007 to a new actor? Well, today we are hearing a new rumor that Idris may be out of the running for the role. For some reason, UK Bookies are saying the odds are more likely that Homeland actor Damian Lewis might become the next Bond and, apparently, that alone is enough to get everyone thinking that Lewis may get the role. Forgetting for a minute how much of a bummer it will be if Idris Elba does not become the next James Bond, the question becomes … Is the world really ready for a ginger Bond to save the day? More »

Will Nicholas Hoult or Jack O'Connell take the role?
Sigh. The seeming curse of The Crow continues to plague production of the Crow redux with the news today that actor Jack Huston has dropped out of the project, leaving the role of The Crow / Eric Draven vacant again. Since we first heard WAY back in 2009 that a remake of the 1994 film The Crow was going into production, rumors and reports have maintained that Marky Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgård, Norman Reedus, Luke Evans and Jack Huston have been offered the lead role in the Crow redux … and none of these men have managed to follow through (tho Bradley Cooper got close, apparently). The project last lost screenwriters and directors over the years as well. Now that Huston is out, the word on the street is that producers are hoping to nab someone like Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) or Jack O’Connell (Unbroken), which both sound like fine choices … if highly unlikely. Read on to learn more about the latest in the saga to remake The Crow for the big screen. More »

Madonna needs a lot of help, apparently
A couple of days ago, we got to see a behind the scenes photo from the set of Madonna‘s music video for Bitch, I’m Madonna which was full of colorfully dressed back-up dancers. Today we learn that Madonna will have more than just back-up dancers in her video … she’ll also have actual mega (and not so mega) pop stars in the video as well. Taking a page from Taylor Swift‘s Bad Blood music video playbook, Madonna has decided to invite her rivals/compatriots/BFFs Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Rita Ora to feature in the music video as well … which would sound kinda cool had Taylor Swift not done this same sort of thing just a few weeks ago. Click below to see the poster art that Madonna shared on Instagram announcing the cast of pop stars that will co-star in her new music video. More »
For your deliberation
Back in March we learned that Scandal actress Kerry Washington signed on to star as Anita Hill in an upcoming HBO biopic film that will tell the tale of the 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, the man that Hill accused of gross sexual harassment. Today, we get our first look at Washington in character as Hill on the set of the HBO biopic film Confirmation, in production now. The film is being directed by Rick Famuyiwa (whose excellent new film Dope opens in theaters this Friday) and executive produced by Washington herself. Click below to see Kerry as Anita and get your first look at Confirmation. More »
Starring Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson and Mandy Patinkin
Altho we *just* got new Smurfs movies back in 2011 and in 2013, we learn today that the Smurfs movie franchise is being rebooted already with a new animated film titled Get Smurfy. This time around, the movie will star (the voices of) Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson and Mandy Patinkin. IMHO, the first 2 Smurfs movies (which married live action with animation) were just terrible (tho the song Britney Spears released for The Smurfs 2 was a highlight for me) so hopefully this time around, this completely animated movie will be able to do justice to the Smurfs legacy. Click the embed above to watch a promo video for Get Smurfy which introduces the cast and informs us that the movie will hit theaters on March 31, 2017. Are you smurfed or what?
