Check out the new Alice in Wonderland.

Boy, that photo is the stuff of nightmares.

It won’t be released until March 2010, but USA Today has a first look at some of the artwork from Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton. This story has been told so many times in so many ways but with Tim Burton at the helm, I have a feeling this will be the dark, twisted tale that it was meant to be.

Good riddance.

I always wondered who was the tool that was responsible for eliminating music videos from MTV’s lineup in favor of such classic entertainment like The Hills, Jackass and TRL. Apparently the man’s name is Brian Graden, who is leaving the network after 13 glorious years of destroying the whole purpose of MTV, which used to be about…oh what’s that word again….oh yeah… MUSIC!

I know I’m a dreamer, but since Viacom won’t be filling the position, and is looking to save some cash, could they maybe start adding back in some videos in lieu of stupid reality shows? Yeah, it’s a pipe dream, I am aware.

I think he cursed himself.

A fellow wordpresser (I made that word up…copywright 2009) sent me this clip from the Tony Awards show. Broadway Space’s Kathy Searle interviews various Broadway and Hollywood celebrities from the Tony swag room. While Kathy is a little manic and slightly over the top in this clip, the gem is really at the 1:44 mark, when Bret “Busted Face” Michaels says this:

“I gotta be honest with you, I have bad luck at awards shows.”

Ya think?

Interview with True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis.

If you still haven’t watched the season premiere of True Blood, stop reading now. If you have, then here’s an interview with Nelsan Ellis, who plays Lafayette. Lafayette is one of the reasons I am glad Alan Ball is straying from the books. Nelson talks about finding out his character survives:

“When I first started it was only a one-year contract, so I thought I was a goner after the 12th episode. In fact, (Alan) didn’t tell me that he was bringing me back until after the table read for (the season 1 finale). He was like, “You know we’re not killing you, right?” And I was like, “I didn’t know but thanks for telling me.”

He goes on to discuss Lafayette’s relationship with Eric and if he believes he will make it to season 3. Read the rest of the article over at MSNBC.

Primeval is history.

BBC News has confirmed that Primeval has been cancelled. That’s a bummer. Although I felt like the show was slipping this season after losing Stephen and Cutter, I thought it was starting to pick up again after watching last week’s episode. Even a sub par BBC show is better than half of what’s on American television anyway. Wonder if the movie is still on?

Was True Blood worth the wait?

So what did you all think of the season premiere of True Blood? I loved it. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, I won’t reveal any big spoilers, but it’s safe to say I was pleased with the direction Alan Ball is taking. He is straying quite a bit away from the books, but I like where it’s going and it should be a great season.

Minor spoiler alert: Also, how funny was Eric coming down the stairs in a track suit with his hair wrapped in foil for his highlights right before he bites the crap out of that redneck?

SciFi Wire has an interesting interview with Alexander Skarsgard as he discusses developing the character of Eric Northman:

“Season one was an introduction to Eric,” Skarsgard said in an exclusive phone interview last week. “You didn’t see much more than the one side, which is him being the bad-ass vampire leader. In season two we go deeper, and you’ll understand that he is more complex than that and has a sensitive side and a very loyal side. He can be a great friend. He doesn’t like a lot of people, but if he likes you, then he’s extremely loyal. For an actor, it’s something I love to do, to go deeper and play more. I felt that after season one, people were always like, ‘Eric is the evil vampire,’ and I always defended Eric, because I don’t see him as evil at all.”
