VICTOR GARBER – of ‘Argo’, ‘Titanic’, ‘Alias’, etc., has come out and said he’s gay. And good for him. No one should ever hide or be ashamed of the person they date, unless that person is from Alabama. (greg in hollywood)

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER – whose movie ‘the Last Stand’ is getting surprisingly good reviews, did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on reddit last night, later saying this was his favorite part, and even did a sketch of the reddit alien (above). He was amazing; a charismatic Austrian who likes to draw, experimented with physical perfection, acquired global power, and ran a government. I’d follow a guy like that anywhere! (reddit)

TOM CRUISE – probably won’t get a sequel to ‘Jack Reacher’ because, even though it’s completely fucking awesome, it will likely fall short of the $250M needed to warrant a sequel (it’s made $165M so far). So they’ll just have to use the extra-short camera mounts that point up in a different movie where Tom Cruise beats up people. (hollywood reporter)

ARCHER – returns to FX on January 17th, so until then here’s Archer, Pam and Cheryl/Carol answering the question, “What’s your idea of a perfect day?” If your answer to that would be “watch videos in little boxes”, I’ve got good news. (av club)

‘Jack Reacher’ has a new trailer

This first full trailer for ‘Jack Reacher’ is a little underwhelming, and it really should have kept the name ‘One Shot‘, but it’s directed by the great Christopher McQuarrie and produced by Skydance, which is as close as you can get to a sure thing in Hollywood. It even has Werner Herzog as the villain. Every single person involved with this is smart and really good at making movies, it has to be good.

Still, they probably should have found a way to add that fat little redneck girl Honey Boo-Boo, because most people are morons, and there’s only so much quality one movie can have before that approach backfires.

‘Jack Reacher’ has a trailer

Everyone agrees that Tom Cruise is a member of a scary cult that takes advantage of people, and that’s very bad, but his new movie is directed by Christopher McQuarrie who wrote ‘the Usual Suspects’ and wrote and directed ‘The Way of the Gun’, which is THE SINGLE GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE. So if Tom Cruise is what it takes to get a new Christopher McQuarrie movie than he could be in the fucking Manson Family for all I care. Go ahead, brainwash his kid, I don’t even like kids, I would probably brainwash them too so who am I to judge.
