I like Jamie Foxx, and I didn't mind The Amazing Spider-Man, but good God, Foxx looks silly in these set photos from the sequel, where he'll apparently play Tobias Fünke. (Vulture)

Here's another look at Jamie Foxx on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man sequel pre-transformation, and uh ... y'all. I'm worried. (DListed)

Bryan Fuller wants to do a "Star Trek" TV series, and if he could pull it off, he has the best ladies in mind to command the Starship. (TheMarySue)

If you're all caught up on the phenomenal "Rectify" -- the best new series of the year -- then you probably already love Abigail Spencer, so now you can love her even more on "Burning Love." (WG)

Johnny Depp is dating Amber Heard, who came out as a lesbian last year, and now all of tingly senses are confused. (Celebitchy)

The real-life people behind The Bling Ring, the movie featuring Emma Watson, are pissed because the feature film is "trashy and inaccurate." (Slashfilm)

This is sad. Watch the world-record attempting 40,000 piece jigsaw puzzle collapse, and then feel better about how you've wasted your past week. (Videogum)

Ahead of this week's release of Iron Man 3 stateside (it's already made bazillions overseas), here's Iron Man's 5 Best Cinematic moments. (FSR)

Eek. Here's what not to name your spacefaring raccoon video game. (Kotaku)

Our old pal Josh Kurp has ranked all the "Game of Thrones" Houses by their hotness, because it needed to be done. (Uproxx)

After drafting their future QB in the NFL draft, the Jets have cut Tim Tebow. Here are 11 of his lowlights from last season. Sweet, sweet Gif failure. (Buzzfeed)

The Fug Girls, as always, are doing spectacular fashion coverage of the White House Correspondent's Dinner. (GoFugYourself)

In honor of Arbor Day, here are 16 fascinating stories about ... uh ... trees. (MentalFloss)

The first active professional athlete in a major sport has come out as gay. Not that it matters, but he's a good looking guy, too. And if you don't already love him, he wore the number 98 in honor of Matthew Shepard. (SI)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • MrMinion

    "I don't label myself one way or another – I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman. I love who I love; it's the person that matters."

    Amber Heard said that in an interview. So apparently she's bisexual and not lesbian.

  • zeke_the_pig

    I dunno - have you seen Johnny Depp lately? He's approaching the 'stereotypical old lesbian' look pretty quickly. Which just means that Amber Heard's got a bit of an older woman thing going on. And there's nowt wrong with that.

    I'd go lesbian for old lesbian Johnny Depp.

    ...If I was a woman.

    ...Which I'm not.
    But I would still find a way to go lesbian for Amber freaking Heard.

  • Strand

    I love how every Spider-Man villain (at least in the movies) is a well-meaning, idealistic scientist who goes bad when their experiments fuck up.

  • Apparently Amber Heard is a bad lesbian, then. And not the good, porno movie kind of 'bad lesbian' either, which is, ironically, worse.

  • Tinkerville

    I don't understand. Why did he put the jigsaw on a vertical sloped surface instead of just a... flat table? Or, I don't know, the floor?

  • googergieger

    "This is sad. Watch the world-record attempting 40,000 piece
    jigsaw puzzle collapse, and then feel better about how you’ve wasted
    your past week."

    I don't know how that is supposed to make me feel better about spending a week masturbating to puzzles collapsing, but alright...

  • Batesian

    I'm just glad they went back to the classic Spidey costume design. Last time he was running around with a giant red arrow pointing at his junk:

  • Quorren

    Or is it a penis, pointing at his penis?

  • F'mal DeHyde

    The photo of Foxx at Dlisted reminded me of In Living Color.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The first active professional athlete in a major sport has come out as gay.

    Am I right to infer that your definition of "major" has male as a qualifier?

  • Mrs. Julien

    That didn't occur to me at first, but in the article, the player actually makes that distinction: first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport.

  • JJ

    True. That's because it's too difficult for people to spell "Navratilova."

  • That, and nobody cares about tennis.

  • Mrs. Julien

    What about "KING"?!

  • toblerone

    “Rectify” — the best new series of the year. - I think that title should go to Orphan Black. Tatiana Maslany is amazing (and gorgeous and Canadian) and as long as they can keep up the pace / writing it gets my vote and is my favorite new show (followed by Hannibal, Rectify and Top of the Lake).

    Krupp got it wrong:

    “Game of Thrones” Houses by their hotness:

    1. House Stark
    2. House Lannister
    3. House Targaryen

  • ViciousTrollop

    Ugh, Orphan Black. I couldn't make it through the pilot episode.
    If I wanted to see people from Brampton, Ontario doing horrible British accents I would....I can't think of a situation where I would ever want to see that.
    It's like they remade SMG's Ringer for Canadian television and somehow managed to make it even worse.

  • Three_nineteen

    In my opinion, the pilot was the worst episode of the show so far. Once I got through that, the story got a lot better. I won't say if the accents get less bad, since I have a blind spot there and can't usually tell how bad accents are.

  • toblerone

    Only Felix is from Brampton, Ontario. Sarah is from Regina, Saskatchewan.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm still angry that Jamie Foxx won an Oscar for doing a really, really good impression of Ray Charles.

  • NoPantsMcLane

    If he should have gotten an award that year, it should have been for Collateral.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Yeah, you know what - I agree. If Foxx HAD to get an award that year over everyone else, then Collateral should've done it. I find it hard most of the time to not see him acting, but in that one he got me. I believed him.

  • superasente

    What is acting if not pretending to be someone else? It's only acting if the person is make-believe? That's silly.

  • Mrs. Julien

    What I meant was that his portrayal lacked substance and depth. It was all on the surface. All impression and no soul.

  • poopnado

    Can I disagree? I disagree. And anyway, even if you think he sucked it up in Ray, I do think he's gotten better. And besides, like Tony Stark says, they were gonna give it to him eventually.

  • ViciousTrollop

    And he kept showing up at awards shows doing the same impersonation for like a year afterwards. It drove me nuts. I can't stand the guy.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    And Jason Collins just became my favorite person of the year. His whole article is spectacular.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Congrats, Johnny Depp, for becoming the first famous male beard of the 21st century.
