First Look Of James Marsden As JFK Will Knock Your Pill Box Off

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | August 21, 2012 | Comments ()


As we've already mentioned on the site today, that rumor that the late Tony Scott had inoperable brain cancer was completely, utterly, patently false. I think. I don't know. The point is I'm still sad he's gone. So is fellow director Edgar Wright. (Edgar Wright There)

Criterion has not only released a disc of The Royal Tenenbaums disc, they've made available every book and magazine cover used in the movie. I want to frame this photo of The Baumer. I still think it's the highlight of the Brown Wilson's career. (Laughing Squid)

Splitsider has 53 "Arrested Development" jokes you probably missed. No, really, you missed some of them. I don't care how many damn times you've rewatched. (Splitsider)

Thanks to mswas for this brilliant 50 Shades Generator. Go print yourselves your very own badly written breastseller everyone! (50 Shades Generator)

NBC has won the bidding war for Michael J. Fox's new sitcom. For those of you doubting MJF's ability to perform these days, do yourself a favor and watch his episodes of "The Good Wife." It's not just for your meemaw, I promise. ANYWAY, here's a rundown on the new show. (WG) The most pertinent aspect, of course, being that the actor's Parkinson's will be written into the show. Alyssa Rosenberg (one of the most thoughtful TV writers out there) dissects the advisability of portraying a chronic illness on TV. (Think Progress) Me? I'm for it, and I'm desperately hoping Bob Hoskins comes along for the ride.

Have you seen the 10th Anniversary "Firefly" print QMX has for sale? Sh*ny as f*ck, you guys. (QMX)

What do you get when you cross monkeys, booze and science? Apparently you get a pantsless lab tech. (AJC)

Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby flick is in need of several million dollars in order to be completed. Luhrmann is (not so) privately shopping around for investors. Don't go to Meyer Wolfsheim, Baz! I'M SORRY, I HAVE TO USE MY LIT. DEGREE FOR SOMETHING. (FSR)

Here's your first look at James Marsden and Minka Kelly and JFK and Jackie O as well as Forest Whitaker in silhouette as the titular character in The Butler. I don't ever remember JFK wearing a wife beater. Le swoon. (/Film)

Finally, because I'm awfully tired of debating rape, defining rape and feeling outraged about rape, here's motherf*cking Alan Rickman making a cup of tea. Legitimately.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    When I first read that top post, I thought you were saying that Edgar Wright was also gone.

  • dahlia6

    The 50 Shades Generator left me with this gem: corn-eyed butt-snake.

  • Tate

    Oh Alan, that water is not piping hot. You have been out of England too long.

  • Becca

    I like to imagine that it's for that very reason that he flips out at the end.
    "What is this shit? I said I wanted the water hot!! DOES THIS FEEL HOT TO YOU MOTHERF*UCKER?!!!"

  • TheReinaG

    Thanks joanna for finally putting up the Alan Rickman link I linked to @pajiba on twitter days ago!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    James Marsden is too good looking to play JFK.

    Also: pet peeve: when people refer to young Jacqueline Kennedy as Jackie O.

    I tried to read the 50 Shades Generator...but just one and a half sentences and I almost retched. So...I'm not gonna take myself there.

  • lowercase_ryan

    side note: how many of you want to be that cup of tea that Rickman is so intensely reaching for? Yeah that's what I thought.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I don't care what Michael J. Fox does, he does it brilliantly. He gets a lifetime pass for Spin City alone.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Ok Wes, so who's Amanda Bouquet?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I was wondering too. And wishing it had been Amanda Hugenkiss.

  • fracas

    I always think James Marsden is going to be James Marsters, and then I'm disappointed when he's not.

  • BiblioGlow

    I always get the two of them mixed up too, but I'm happy every time it turns out to be Marsden because Marsden is dreamy. Have you seen Marsters lately? You would do better just to go watch a Buffy ep than to wish he was in new projects. It will give you the sad.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Me three.

  • emmelemm

    Me too.

  • TheOriginalMRod

    That is not a very flattering picture of Minka Kelly... she looks like someone's mom. I guess she is supposed to look like JFK Jr.'s mom.

  • winged chorus

    why is unflattering to be a mum?

  • John G.


    seriously, one whole minute for the teabag to reach the cup. I shouldn't watch this while I'm this caffeinated. I just started banging my head into my desk.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Are you sure it's the coffee?
