Another day of filming on the set of the Entourage movie, and it’s another lack of surprises from Hollywood’s most unoriginal minds. If you had any hope that this movie would be more than just hot girls in tight dresses and douchebags driving expensive cars, all while famous actors made cameos as themselves for the sake of looking cool, you should have known better. Yesterday, Liam Neeson stopped by to film whatever scene he’s appearing in, and judging by the photos, he tells Ari to go fuck himself and then talks to some girls with large breasts. Groundbreaking stuff. You can’t blame these guys for appealing to the lowest hanging fruit on the tree, but even Larry the Cable Guy thinks this shit is too shameless.
‘Taken 2′ finally came out with a trailer today, with that Russian guy who is a villain in every movie vowing to get revenge on Liam Neeson for killing his friends in ‘Taken 1’. Though “revenge” might not be the best word. Those guys did kidnap Liam Neesons daughter and try to sell her as a sex slave. I don’t know how Russian Bad Guy expected Liam Neeson to react but he seems pretty surprised that he would be upset. Maybe we should sell Russian Bad Guys daughter as a sex slave, see how he likes it!
All awards shows are inherently unbearable, except for when you get to see famous people pout and/or get made fun of. So with that in mind it’s fantastic news that Ricky Gervais has agreed to come back for a third time and host the 2012 Golden Globes. Because he’ll stand there and make fun of people and they just have to sit there like assholes and take it and he doesn’t give a fuck if they cry. In fact when Piers Morgan went on twitter yesterday and asked Ricky…
“please can I have the first ‘Sorry if I offended anyone’ interview after the 2012 Golden Globes, like last time?”
He should invite Lindsay Lohan and put her in the front row and then open by saying that was a mistake and she has to leave and then take out a big dildo with a white powder on it and wave it in front of her and say, “come on girl, come on, go get it”, and then throw it toward the exit. That would be a good way to ease into some of his edgier material.
(the video is from Rickys new show on BBC, ‘Lifes Too Short’ starring Warwick Davis)
SUPERMAN – will face off against General Zod in the reboot, to be played by the excellent Michael Shannon. So, brace yourself, but Lindsay was lying to make it seem as if she was in demand. Although really I think she should be the one playing Lois Lane. And Zod. And Superman. She’s that good. (thr)
YOUR HIGHNESS – bombed at the box office this weekend, making just $9.5 million and opening at number 6 despite starring Natalie Portman and James Franco. Hop was number one again ($21.6M), with Author second ($12.6M) and Hanna third ($12.3M). Experts said Your Highness was hurt by the fact that it looked fucking terrible. (la times)
MEL GIBSON – was replaced in Hangover 2 by Liam Neeson, who will now be replaced by Nick Cassavetes because the director wants reshoots and Neeson doesn’t have time. Re-casting and shooting new scenes 5 weeks before the movie opens is a good sign. It means the jokes will be fresh. (ew)
ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO – was at the opening of the Marquee Dayclub in Vegas Saturday, and she wore this fantastic dress. It’s basically held together by nothing but optimism. (fame and wenn)
For last nights world premiere, ‘the A-team’ stars Bradley Cooper and Sharlto Copley parked a tank on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, then joined up with co-stars Rampage Jackson, Liam Neeson, and Jessica Biel. Other big Hollywood names like Adrian Brody, Jon Hamm and Dana White all attended the premiere as well, while stars like Tim Robbins and Sean Penn misunderstood the stunt, surrendered to the tank, laid down in front of the movie theater, rolled back and forth crying, then begged the driver to give sanctions more time.
