Adrien Brody Is Here To Kill Your Crush On...Adrien Brody

You know, as I ramble and roam around these here Internets, collecting links I hope will strike your fancy, I come across a wide range of quality. But it's rare for me to get both the top and the bottom of the spectrum on the same subject in the same day. And yet, I present to you both the best "Harry Potter" link I've seen in a long time (it's the margin doodles that make it) and the worst. That? Right there? That is some sh*tty punning.

Michael K. Williams reveals a possible explanation for his blindingly brilliant performance in "The Wire." Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby. (WG)

If you thought the Victorians were a bunch of gloomy motherf*ckers before, wait until you hear about the "professional mourners." Consumptive urchins and chimney sweeps won't bury themselves, you know. (Retronaut)

You can watch the new JJ Abrams pilot online in its entirety. Right now. Instead of working. Do it! You JJ fans know it's all downhill from the pilot, right? (IndieWire)

Go behind the scenes of one of the best shanking/shiving montages in the history of television with the crew of "Breaking Bad." (CB)

Put away your face paint (you keep it out on your desk, right?), there's no way you'll ever top this woman's Venom. (Captain Sara Sparrow)

The Hugo Awards were presented over the weekend, and though I'm woefully behind on my sci-fi/fantasy reading, I was delighted by the television prizes. (The Hugo Awards)

Speaking of which, Neil Gaiman revealed during his acceptance speech that he'll be penning another "Who" episode for this upcoming Spring. (Nerd Approved)

And in other TV news that makes you want to bite/kiss your neighbor, Mitch Hurwitz reveals that more "Arrested Development" may pave the way for resurrecting other beloved, dead shows. Like "Freaks and Geeks" and (shrieks Kristen Bell from somewhere in the Hollywood hills) maybe "Veronica Mars?!?!?!?" (WG)

High School (featuring a super bedraggled/tattoed Adrien Brody) is out on Blu-ray this week. The film was a hit at Sundance but didn't get much love in wide release. If you want a taste of Brody in all his inked and braided glory, FSR has an exclusive clip of some of his deleted scenes. (FSR)

Do you think this Chainsaw Dress is available at your local S-Mart? (Boing Boing)

Reba directed me to this fundraiser auction which we hope you'll contribute to because of the gold in your heart, not because you would claw someone's face off for a chance at one of the prizes including lunch with Nathan Fillion or a behind the scenes tour of "Community." (Bidding For Good)

Finally, some person has meticulously cobbled Rick Astley's notorious "Never Gonna Give You Up" from "Mad Men" footage. If that's not your cuppa, then go ahead and watch it on mute from some sweet Hendricks Conga and Alison Brie doing the Charleston.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned

    Mitch Hurwitz reveals that more “Arrested Development” may pave the way
    for resurrecting other beloved, dead shows. Like maybe
    “Veronica Mars?!?!?!?”

    Don't fucking toy with us, people.

  • SabrinaHatesDisqus

    Is this some weird Looper shit, where Adrien Brody killed my crush on Adrien Brody by... going back in time and making sure I never develop a crush on Adrien Brody?

    Or is that Back to the Future...

  • Eva Halloween

    Nope. I love ya, JR, but I don't think this Venom/Ann Weying cosplay will ever be beat.

  • Eva Halloween

    Ohh, piffle, I can't make the picture post. They're up here: http://tinyurl.com/tyoh-venom

    It's Freddie Nova in really fantastic liquid latex and paint. Worth a look.

  • poopysnizz

    It's what, nearly 14 years since Freaks and Geeks last aired?

    Yeah, it would SUCK COCK if Apatow and company brought it back now.

    Too much time and all the cast members are way far past their sell date.

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    Oh. I looked at the header photo without reading the headline, fully expecting to see what shenanigans the oddly bearded and corn-rowed Steve Carell was up to.

    Well this is awkward.

    Oh well

    ::wanders off, whistling::

  • Quieteyes

    When I saw that pic, I assumed Adrian Brody was playing Khal Drogo for some reason.

  • sj

    Honestly, that pic of Adrian Brody up there is the first time I've actually considered him in the neighborhood of good looking. He's a fine actor and all, but for some reason his face always seems droopy and depressing, like a melting candle.

    Not anymore though. Beards fix everything.

  • John W

    After reading Sandman I used to think that "Neil Gaiman" was Doctor Who's nom de plume.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    I'm not sure I can do the J.J. Abrams show, Revolution. I watched the first 15 minutes or so, but I just can't suspend disbelief. I baaarreely stand some kind of "computer virus kills off all electric things, including power plants, etc etc." But even if you kill off electricity entirely, you can still have steam power. Diesel engines only need electricity for the glowplug and starter. So the idea that everything electric is dead doesn't even kill off the railroads.

    Are we to believe there is no more static electricity? Shouldn't we have a scene of a kid wearing socks, scuffing his way across a carpet concluding with a puff of blue smoke instead of a shock?

    (update): Ok I just watched a few minutes more. Check this out: Guns work! So.... guns work, which means we can get gasses to compress so that means all sorts of engines can work.

    Sorry, too much just doesn't hold together on this one.

  • Snath

    I don't know about that second Potter link. That "spoiler" tshirt is the kind of asshole shirt I might wear. Except it's been years now, and it isn't so topical any longer.

    Which is probably why I'd wear it now.

  • Samantha Klein

    Nooo, not my crush on Adrien Brody. I'm so attached to it. To counteract, I shall replay him saying "Rhinocerous" as Salvador Dali over and over in my head.

    ....Aaaah. That's better.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    And the Gillette commercial! don't forget the Gillette commercial!

  • Eve

    "Rhinocerous"...my favourite scene in Midnight in Paris.

  • Why are you trying to kill my ladyboner for Adrien Brody AND Jeremy Renner in the same day? That just doesn't seem fair.

    However, the Voldemort anagrams almost make up for it.

  • e jerry powell

    Badder Irony or Debonair Dry for you, milady?

  • Eve

    Agreed.
