In keeping with the war he has waged on all things reasonably entertaining, Tyler Perry won his battle to trademark the tired phrase, What Would Jesus Do. Perry didn’t actually create the slogan, but he fought to own it just the same. Perry won his battle against reality day player Kimberly Poprah Kearney who is apparently the only other person with shitty enough taste to want to earn off a motivational poster slogan as lifeless and idiotic as What Would Jesus Do. Perry plans to use his new catchphrase to market more of his repetitive projects filled with stock characters and slapstick domestic violence. I don’t know what Jesus Would Do, but I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t be claiming to own station wagon bumper sticker shtick he didn’t invent in the first place.

Dominic Monaghan was having a seemingly routine Q and A with fans on twitter when a girl asked him to say hi to ‘Lost’ co-star Matthew Fox. And in a sense, that’s what he did.
FAN: Holla at Matthew Fox and tell him to get a twitter I beg of you.
MONAGHAN: He beats women. No thanks. (1)
FAN: I know it was wrong but what?! What about all those good times you had together?!
MONAGHAN: How do you know we ever did? You don’t know either of us. He beats women. Not isolated incidents. Often. Not interested. (2)
FAN: Spreading an accusation that EVEN eww-TMZ didn’t make… How classy. Hope Matthew Fox sues you for defamation.
MONAGHAN: An accusation is when you “claim” someone did something wrong. I know. But hey little fan girl maybe want to get slapped.
MONAGHAN: And it’s very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth. (3, 4, 5)
Fox hasn’t responded yet but he better because any guy who hits girls is a complete piece of shit and beneath contempt. Unless that guy is dating Cameron Diaz, in which case it’s really none of our business. Why is everyone such a little busy-body these days.

CHRIS EVANS – is on the cover of the new issue of Empire, and only a country as bad ass as America could have a superhero like this. What would the French one be, some pedophile in a smock holding a baguette? You can suck it, France! (empire)
RICKY GERVAIS – has been asked to host the Golden Globes again next year, because the ratings were up again, but doesn’t think he should because he doesn’t think the show could have been any better. Here’s a suggestion: trap doors for the losers. (hollywood reporter)
TYLER PERRY – is famous for playing a sassy old lady, but now he’ll play the lead in I, Alex Cross, the character originally played by Morgan Freeman in the movies Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. I have to assume the producer agreed to this while duct taped to a chair and with Perrys agent forcing the pen in to his hand. That dude is a good agent! (variety)
JOAQUIN PHOENIX – may unretire to play the mentor in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, with Benjamin Walker playing Lincoln. Rule 1 with vampire hunting: just go out there and have fun. (deadline)
