Tom Cruise is in Prague today for the first day of filming on ‘Mission Impossible 4’, which is surprising because yesterday he was in Tokyo for the Japanese premiere of ‘Knight and Day’. That flight has to be, like, 200 miles (I’m not good with numbers). Even if they went 70 the whole way it had to take all night.
Tom Cruise has his faults, he’s crazy for example, but at least when you hire that guy you get a professional. A guy who goes to work and doesn’t make excuses. Keep in mind this is an actor we’re talking about, and 95 percent of all actors are fragile sissies. Jim Carey could see a red car or get an ice cream headache and you might as shut down production because you’re not filming shit for 6 months.
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4 – has added Josh Holloway from ‘Lost’ to the cast as a member of Tom Cruises team. His characters specialty is on missions where being really really handsome helps in some way. (hollywood reporter)
BRAD PITT – was always thought to be the only choice to play Professor Moriarty in the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ sequel, but today the role was given to Jared Harris, the son of legendary actor Richard Harris (here he is as a prisoner on ‘Fringe’.) It’s a terrible choice. If this guy was any good he’d be famous. Thanks for ruining the movie, dick. I swear to God you’re gonna pay for this! (latino review)
TRUE GRIT – has a new trailer. Can anything look better than a remake of the great John Wayne movie, directed by the Coen Brothers and starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin? Yes, as it turns out. Lots and lots of things. (quicktime)
BRITNEY SPEARS – did some shopping around West Hollywood in these kick ass shorts. For a bra you might ask? Nope. Apparently not.
Like a dark ominous cloud over the sea rolling in the from the west, ‘Knight and Day’ had it’s Japanese premiere in Tokyo earlier today.
Tom Cruise scared some little kids (“Why his crothes so tight? No I no want see, he rook rike pervert!!”) but thanks to things like Gamera and Pokemon, Japanese kids think ugly monsters are friendly and here to protect them, so when Cameron Diaz arrived, she turned those frowns upside down.
JON MAYER – went on tumblr and said the Huffington Post is “full of shit”, in a 463 word response to a 150 word story that implied he might be back together with Jennifer Aniston. Maybe he overreacted, but let’s see someone blab that you’re dating that fug bitch and see how you like it. (tumblr, huff post)
JEREMY RENNER – has won the lead opposite Tom Cruise in ‘Mission: Impossible 4′, directed by Brad Bird, which will begin production in the fall and film in the U.S., Vancouver, Prague and Dubai. Cruise is expected to star in ‘M:I 5′ as well, but after that the franchise may be handed over to Renner. Actually you can bank on it, because if there’s one thing Hollywood is good at, it’s making long range plans and sticking to it. (deadline)
MATT DAMON – was back today filming scenes for the new season of ’30 Rock’ (which finally got good last year) and Sherri Shepherd posted a picture of them with Tracy Morgan. Damon plays a pilot who dates Tina Fey, while Shepherd plays the last thing a pound of bacon ever sees. (twitpic)
SOPHIE MONK – is in Hawaii in a bikini, which is more than enough to make the page on a day this incredibly slow. Seriously did you see that Matt Damon story? WTF was that all about? (pacific coast)
MEL GIBSON – wants his ex girlfriend to produce some evidence to back up her claims, especially the one saying she has dental records proving he knocked out two of her teeth. And I want my ex girlfriend to produce some evidence that she got stationed in Germany. She’s not even in the military as far I know. (radar)
TOY STORY 3 - ruled yet again this weekend, earning another 59 million (total is now 227m). ‘Grown Ups’ was in second place with 40 mill, but ‘Knight and Day’ only made 20.5 million. That movie had a cutesy yet meaningless title, a recycled plot and Cameron Diaz. In hindsight maybe I should say it made an astounding 20.5 million. (bom)
STEVE CARELL – has confirmed that he will leave ‘The Office’ after next season, but the show will continue without him. Seems risky, but personally, I’m 100 percent confident that the show won’t get any less funny. (e!)
KELLY BROOK - is still in Barbados, in the same bikini, but these are new pictures. It’s nice really because this is like a hundred pictures now and I can edit them together and make a little movie. (splash)
As you watch Tom Cruise sell a billion ‘Knight and Day’ movie tickets by dancing with Hennifaa Yopez at last nights MTV Movie Awards, keep in mind that he’s … ahem … FORTY FUCKING SEVEN years old. I’m joining scientolgoy immediately. I asked my old god for immortality a hundred times. You know what I got? Nothin. A big fat nothin.
