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)

SKINS – has now lost so many sponsors (Taco Bell, Wrigley, Subway, Foot Locker, L’Oreal and Shick) due to its subject matter, it’s now in danger of being canceled. Can’t they just get new sponsors? Sponsors who aren’t so uptight? Like tequila, or the morning after pill. Or a tequila with the morning after pill in it. (fox)

PENELOPE CRUZ AND JAVIER BARDEM – are now the parents of a baby boy, with Penelope giving birth the same day Javier was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actor. Because of course she couldn’t let him be the center of attention for even 5 minutes. Selfish cunt. (huff post)

JESSE JAMES – is the subject of two more Nazi related pictures (as he was about a year ago), though these aren’t as bad. Or as good, depending on how you feel about Nazis. (us)

JOE MANGANIELLO – of True Blood is a leading candidate to play Superman in the reboot from producer Christopher Nolan and director Zach Snyder, and I’m sorry but no one named Joe Manganiello should be playing Superman. Or is part of the re-imagining to have a Superman who wears bronzer and “ice” in his ear, and instead of flying he drives a Mitsubishi Eclipse around. “Hey, hello, excuse me. I’m bein friggin Superman over here huh, so how about you show a little friggin respect.” (la times)

JAMIE CHUNG – stars in the upcoming Sucker Punch, and now she’s on the cover of Complex. I’ve said this a million times but Asian girls are just better than regular girls, in every way, at everything. And Jamie is a good example. If we ever had sex I would absolutely try to get her pregnant so she could never leave me. (complex)

SUPERMAN – is being produced by Christopher Nolan and written by Nolan and David Goyer (they directed and wrote ‘Batman Begins’ and ‘the Dark Knight’), and today it was announced that it will be directed by Zack Snyder, who directed ‘300’ and ‘Watchmen’. Will it be in 3D? Maybe. Will it have tons of slow motion bullshit and homoerotic outfits? Yes. (LA Times)

50 CENT – might have been on a date last night in New Orleans with Chelsea Handler. I’ve got a good feeling about these two. Wedding bells can’t be far off, I bet. (tmz)

READER EMAIL - Dan wants to know: “Are you seriously so god damn dumb you can’t even use ‘to’ or ‘too’ correctly?” Well, if you see it wrong on the page, then apparently I am. Not sure I can make it much more clear than that.

KATY PERRY – was in Munich this weekend for Oktoberfest and to do some weird German TV show. Since she’s weird as hell too it was the most perfect fit since I hosted a show on the Handsome Man Channel.
