Woody Harrelson claims he mistook photographer for zombie

zombiecamera

Is that not the best headline of the week? Apparently traumatized from fighting all those zombies on the set of his new movie, “Zombieland”, Mr. Harrelson attacked a TMZ paparazzo as he took his picture at La Guardia. Honestly, can you blame him? The paparazzi can seem a little like a roving band of zombies. I’m just sayin’.

Ok…I’m having another Rupert Everett moment.

So I am browsing Cinematical.com, reading about the latest movie news. I came across an article about Brittany Murphy signing on to star in The Expendables and all I kept saying was “What the hell is up with missy’s face???”

She’s only what like 31 or 32? Her upper lip is about to start merging with her nose…and her cheeks…and her eyes….aaaack. Scary. She keeps this up and she should be the next lion lady. Here’s a side by side comparison of Brit’s two faces:

And we thought the vial of blood necklace was as weird as it would get.

So did you hear about Billy Bob’s little diva moment? When the Canadian radio dj dared to introduce Mr. Thornton as a “Oscar-winning screenwriter, actor and director” during an interview to promote his band The Boxmasters? Apparently, not happy with the thought of Joaquin Phoenix being at the top of the crazy celebrity ladder, Billy Bob is now being crowned the new king of the bizarre. MTV reports that his band has dropped out from the tour with Willie Nelson after Thursday night’s concert where he tried to explain himself to his Canadian audience and ended up only making them angrier.

For Real with Jeremy Fisher explains what really happened, that it was just a little lost in translation moment.

Being a zombie isn’t the only way to lose a finger apparently.

Just in time for Easter, Zombie Research Society, has a fantastic zombie bunny painting from artist Cambria Evans. One of Cambria’s clients is Martha Stewart Omnimedia. Lucky girl. It would be nice to work for a company that actually appreciates and encourages creative thinking but who am I kidding,  I have tried dozens of crafts from her show and it NEVER comes out looking like it did on her show. I call the craft a success if I don’t end up with glitter up my nose and glue in my hair. I am apparently not alone in my feelings of craft inadequacy. Gawker talks about why Martha makes them feel like losers.

For all the guys I completely turned off with all the craft talk, The Consumerist talks about Martha Stewart lounge chairs that are eating peoples fingers. Hey, their words not mine.

Let’s all take a deep breath…

dollhouse3

Boy oh boy the interwebs were in a panic today about the potential cancellation of Dollhouse thanks to an announcement from Fox that they would not be airing the 13 episode “Epitaph One”(which is the 14th if you count the unaired pilot.) Twitters from actress Felicia Day and @drhorrible were only adding fuel to the fire when Tim Minear’s post cleared everything up.

So it seems, at least for the time being, that Dollhouse still has the potential to be renewed for second season. I have to say that Dollhouse has grown on me, I wasn’t too excited about it after the first episode but several episodes in, I am kinda hooked. I’m not holding my breath about the renewal though given the track record between Joss and Fox.

Told you so.

lego-zombie

Time magazine says zombies are the new vampires. Well duh. Who wants those pretty boy vamps, especially ones that sparkle. Apparently it all boils down to a zombie’s relatability:

“Sure, he’s an abomination and a crime against all that is good and holy. But he exemplifies some real American values too. He’s plucky and tenacious — you can cut off his limbs and he’ll keep on coming atcha. And he’s humble. ”

You can find the rest of the article here.

Geeks are chic.

FREAKS AND GEEKS

I’m not sure when it happened but I think it is officially The Age of the Geek. With Steve Wozniak on Dancing with the Stars and the rise of the whole Apatow acting clan, geeks are everywhere. Jaunted.com has put together a whole section on best geek trips to take, Aisha Tyler talks about why “geeks have recently, finally, come into vogue.”  and this book is apparently going to teach me how to be a geek goddess(like I’m not there already). Does this mean I can finally go public with my crush on John Oliver now?

Also, has anyone noticed that the “Freaks” or “Slackers” side of Freaks and Geeks went on to have pretty successful movie and tv careers: Linda Cardellini(ER), Seth Rogan(Knocked Up), James Franco(Milk) and Jason Segal(Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Huh. Just thought that was kinda interesting.

Exterminate!

Since I am not a patient person, the wait for the next season of Doctor Who has been killing me. I’m not too keen on the new Doctor but I’ll give him a chance to make the character his own before judging him. In the meantime, I think I need to take a trip to Scotland so I can see the coolest exhibit ever. Visitors to the Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow have a chance to get up and close with the characters and creatures that have been a part of the amazing world of Doctor Who. Of course, being unemployed and broke means I will need to win the lottery or rob a bank before the exhibit ends in January 2010.

If you’ve never heard of Doctor Who, it’s British sci-fi series that centers around a time traveling alien. It orginally ran from 1963-1989  but was brought back in 2005. I think all four seasons have been fantastic but Season 3 is my favorite so far. You can go here to read an interview with the current Doctor Who, David Tennant and writer/producer, Russell T. Davies.

Why I hate clowns.

It seems like everything is being remade nowadays. From movies to tv shows, there seems to be a lack of creativity going on in Hollywood. I don’t know about you all but it irritates me that producers and filmmakers want to “reimagine” all the shows and movies that were fine the first time around. I don’t want to see another version of Pennywise, Tim Curry mastered that portrayal. I also don’t want to see a modern Sex in the City version of Wizard of Oz, no one does a better Wicked Witch then Margaret Hamilton. Enough already. Go do some brainstorming up at some swanky LA spa and come up with some new ideas.

Here’s a list of some of the shows and movies being or soon to be remade:

Melrose Place, Nightmare Before Elm Street, Macbeth, It, Wizard of Oz, Children of the Corn, Robocop, Rock ‘n Roll High School, Red Dawn, Parenthood, A-Team

On a sorta unrelated note, $72.5 million for Fast and Furious this weekend? Did not see that one coming. Yay for Vin Diesel I guess.
