Lost‘s Emilie de Ravin just got married, stars on a megahit tv show, and is younger than me. Damn you, Emilie de Ravin.
Rob Thomas said in this week’s Ask Ausiello that Tina Majorino will most likely be a series regular for season three of Veronica Mars. Unfortunately, Michael Cera (George Michael on Arrested Development) will not be a regular because of scheduling conflict, though there’s a chance he could appear in an episode or two later in the season.
Watching the trailer for Spider-Man 3, I am left with this thought: wow, Tobey Maguire sure looks fug.
Now you can purchase and download Warner Bros. movies online at Guba, either for rental at around $3, or to own for $20. The site includes titles like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Syriana. I guess if this catches on, Veronica Mars and other Warner shows might be distributed this way. It seems a little expensive and restrictive to me, although it does allow you to burn purchased movies to DVD.
I love it when E! Online solves intriguing celebrity mysteries! It turns out Nicole Kidman did not get her first marriage annulled. It turns out she did have a freaky Scientology marriage ceremony instead of a Catholic one, and thus the Catholic Church considered her never married. She’s very tricky, that Nicole.
J.K. Rowling will be killing off at least two more characters in the final Harry Potter book, according to this interview. Seriously, if she kills off Harry, I will be infuriated. Infuriated.
Zap2it's TV award ballot is up and ready for voting. I love any poll where the nominees include Michael Vartan and/or Veronica Mars.
Where's Suri Cruise? According to Fox (via A Socialite's Life), pictures of her were shopped around, but withdrawn when news outlets were only willing to pay $3 million, in comparison to Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's $4 million.
I don't think Tom should be offended. The price difference was due to simple celebrity math: Shiloh's the daughter of two bona fide movie stars ($2 mil each). Suri is the daughter of one movie star ($2 mil) and one Dawson's Creek cast member ($1 mil). Assuming the baby actually exists, I bet we'll finally see Suri at about 5 months.
Peter Liguori is begging comedy writers to bring their projects to Fox. He also hopes that comedy writers forget about the timeslot switches and subsequent cancellation of Arrested Development, and delude themselves into thinking that their shows will receive much better treatment.
An interview with Santino from Project Runway. Amidst all the ego, Santino mentions that he was involved in casting season three, and claims not to remember Chloe's name.
I heard the most bizarre thing on the radio the other day: Steve Miller singing "Take the Money and Run" to the tune of "The Joker." You can hear it for yourself here.
Also, here's a crazy remix of Fall Out Boy's "Dance Dance" for download.
An interview with James Walter, who will play young Sirius Black in the next movie.
In case you’re suffering from Hogwarts withdrawal, here’s a skit performed for the Queen’s eightieth birthday celebration, in which Harry and the gang try to find the Queen’s missing purse, and wacky hijinks ensue. Hermione overacts as usual, but at least it’s nice to see Harry’s new haircut.
I'm not interested in Nicole Kidman's wedding (except for the light it sheds on the Tom situation) but it does kind of suck that Marcia Cross's wedding got completely overshadowed — and Marcia's union is arguably the bigger deal, since everyone thought she was gay.
Plus, the guy that gave Marcia her big break on Melrose Place kicked it while she was on her honeymoon. What a disaster.
Ain't It Cool News has an advance review of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest up. I only read the first few paragraphs for fear of spoilers, but those paragraphs say the movie is great!
