Have You Started To Suspect That Jennifer Lawrence Might Be Katniss-ing Us All?

I’m not in the business of building celebrities up in order to tear them down. So trust me when I say I’m still very much on the Team JLaw train. You’ll find me in the bar car. That being said, it’s impossible not to draw parallels between her Goodwill Tour and the one Katniss and Peeta embark on in Catching Fire. Vulture has a compelling breakdown. (Vulture)

Speaking of JLaw, she’s one of only a few badass ladies in the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past. You comic book nerds already know that Ellen Page’s Kitty Pryde was supposed to be the star of this plot line. Here’s the filmmakers bumbling their way through a rationalization of replacing Kitty and her claws* with Wolverine and his. (First Showing)

And while we’re on the subject of mutants, is Cloons going for a sort of Chameleon look here? More polka dots than you could ever want if you click the link. (T&L)

They’ve cast THE most badass TV father of all time to play Ichabod Crane Sr. on Sleepy Hollow. Hold on to your Rambaldis, a good show is about to get MUCH better. (TMS)

speaking of Rambaldi plot devices, Dustin has a great list of TV’s most memorable right turns. They didn’t all work out for the best. (WG)

You know you’re life is in the toilet when That Guy From Freaks And Geeks gets one up on you. Suck it, Elan. Suck it hard. (LAist)

You want to know why there actually appeared to be a spark of sexual chemistry in the final final kiss of Thor: The Dark World? You know, as opposed to the chemistry vacuum of the rest of the movie? Ah, that’s because it wasn’t Natalie Portman Hemsworth was smooching. (NYDN)

We’re all hate-watching the live Sound Of Music event on NBC right? Right. Well I’ve been hate listening to the soundtrack all morning. Right around “Lonely Goatherd” is when my ears started gushing blood. (Spotify)

Here’s the cast of Game Of Thrones posing with their own action figures. Ahhh, a Lannister always plays the best. (io9)

Allegedly Pope Francis sneaks out at night to help the homeless. Dude, is he Jennifer Lawrence-ing us? (HP)

So in honor of my favorite pontiff, here’s some info on Giving Tuesday. Beats Black Friday and Cyber Monday, folks. (Giving Tuesday)

Star Wars has an official Instagram account and their first photo is a selfie you’ll have to see to believe. (VF)

Speaking of selfies, allegedly this is a Norwegian fitness expert FOUR DAYS after she gave birth. Someone is calling this an “act of war.” Christ. (Yahoo)

Personally I consider this ad campaign for a James Franco Supporting Actor award much more offensive. How can we consider anyone else in a post-Jared Leto in Dallas Buyer’s Club world? (FSR)

I’d much rather consider this puppy giving James Franco the side eye. All day, son. (DListed)

Finally, the most overplayed songs of the year boiled into a one minute clip. You know, if your ears weren’t already gushing blood from that Underwood travesty above.

*turn of phrase not literal mutant ability. I know. Trust me, I know.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • - I have no real opinion on Jennifer Lawrence other than that she's hot and appears to be a damn fine actress.

    - To be perfectly honest, I'd rather watch Hugh Jackman be Wolverine than watch Ellen Page be Kitty Pryde any day of the week.

    - It's funny how much approbation Francis gets when you realize he and Benedict said pretty much the exact same thing on a wide variety of subjects. It probably helps that social media is populated almost entirely by people whose memory retention makes goldfish look like elephants.

  • BlackRabbit

    You know what? Perhaps I'm naive and stupid, but I never once thought Ms. Lawrence was faking it till I read that article. And now, I can't help thinking about it. I know, I'll never meet her and it doesn't really matter, but still, I'm angry with the idea of it and disillusioned, even if it's not true. I wish you hadn't put up that article or headline.

  • Stephen Wong

    Jennifer Lawrence is awesome.

  • e jerry powell

    That Norse wench is lying.

    That is all.

  • carrie

    Clooney's pic hurts my eyes

  • Cowtools

    Thanks for informing me that we're to be denied a superhero movie with Ellen Page in the lead. My day is ruined now.

  • John W

    -If they hadn't screwed up the continuity of the X-Men movies so much they could have done it right and included Kitty/Ellen

    -Thanks for that Cersei pic. Lena is so beautiful....

    -What did that woman give birth to? A gerbil?

  • Lifting a quote from the very end of the article about the post-pregnancy selfie: But prenatal nutritionist and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Melinda Johnson warns against jumping to conclusions from Eriksen's photos, noting that every woman is an individual, with individual needs and abilities. "Obviously, what we're looking at is someone who is genetically gifted," she tells Yahoo Shine. "But we can't say she's unhealthy, we can't say [what] she is. The picture alone doesn't tell us anything at all about her health, the health of her pregnancy [or] even her happiness."

    I'm very anti-body shaming. The really important part about that is that is goes all ways: it's not ok to judge someone's health and happiness by their weight whether it's high or low or average or what. Real women and real men come in all shapes and sizes. It's no less ok to jump on someone for being skinny or to tell someone to eat a sandwich already than it is to call someone a whale or start concern trolling about weight loss.

    They’ve cast THE most badass TV father of all time to play Ichabod Crane Sr. on Sleepy Hollow. Hold on to your Rambaldis, a good show is about to get MUCH better.

    Um, no, NO . . . Keith Mars is the most badass TV father of all time. I REFUTE YOUR CLAIM.

  • Even Stevens

    Keith Mars is awesome, but he's more snark and smarts. Joanna is completely correct, Spy Daddy is the most bad ass of all the TV daddies.

  • Berry


  • kirbyjay

    uh....RED FOREMAN!!! We're talking badass, right?

  • Berry

    Red's no Keith Mars.

  • Cowtools

    The list goes:
    1) Keith Mars
    2) Ben Sisko
    3) Jack Bristow
    4) uh…?

  • crackblind

    4) Tywin Lannister?

  • I have no doubt the fawning trend followers will backlash against Lawrence soon and it will make not a damn bit of difference to anything ever. Just like 99.99% of everything posted on the internet daily. She will still be the best actress of her generation and will probably be glad to be finally left alone.

  • BendinIntheWind

    I am SO unreasonably excited about Victor Garber. Sleepy Hollow is my fall television crack.

  • Davis

    I've been saying she's just playing the game like every other celebrity but i get a hater and douche for say saying it for some reason. People are just super gullible and into celeb worship for some reason.

  • Red Rage

    Carrie Underwood can sing well no doubt, but some people should not venture into Broadway musical territory. See Nick Jonas and Russell Crowe. When I listen to the soundtrack I feel like I'm just listening to a Country music concert instead of a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.

  • Scully

    If the term “THE most badass TV father of all time” isn’t immediately followed by “Jack Bristow”, I’m automatically programmed to start fires. So. Good work, JoRo. Phew. We’re safe. For now.

  • emmalita

    Spy Daddy!

  • ellcoolj

    How could Dustin leave off his list the most dramatic turn... Mid way through the first season when hippy Capt. Jenko left the beloved JumpStreet program he started and that hard assed Capt. Fuller came in to do it by the book. As least that's also when Sal "blowfish" Banducci joined the squad

  • Robert

    James Franco in Spring Breakers is playing an entirely different game than Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club. One of them took on a guaranteed Oscar bait role and did a fine job; the other is James Franco in cornrows getting critical acclaim for a really fucked up film with a performance that borders on caricature. Both are worthy Oscar nominees but aside from the size/function of the roles, they're very difficult to compare.

  • It's kinda neat that Hemsworth and Pataky have that kind of obvious passion between them, even though Kirk Cameron pretty much ruined such usually neat tidbits by being so obnoxious about it.

    As far as the Days of Future Past stuff, eh. The time scale was a big mess to start with, so using Wolverine actually does make more sense in a narrative standpoint. But the part that gets me is the whole "he's the series protagonist" thing. I am just damn tired of him getting so much damn focus. Then again, that is Wolverine's REAL mutant power: the world's biggest attention leech.* But, if they can work in a Mystique/Pryde mud-based knockdown dragout in there somewhere (hell, Romijn-Mystique will still work), then maybe I can forgive such things.

    The problem with the whole "post-baby body" is that anyone actually gives a shit. Some women snap back. Some need time and effort. Some are changed for the long term. The idea that there even needs to be a standard or competition for this is ridiculous. Please, everybody who somehow thinks the amount of skin flab on a woman is more important that the life she just squeezed out her lions: GET A GODDAMN LIFE.

    *Note: this is not a slam against Hugh Jackman, because he is awesome and I want to see him dance for iced tea again.

  • kirivinokur

    Audra McDonald's playing the Reverend Mother? That's something good! And I saw Liesl and Rolfe dance and lipsync during the Macy*s parade, and they sounded good. Underwood really is the main thing that's making me cringe.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Giving Tuesday makes me feel a little guilty that I did more shopping this morning. Mostly boring stuff, but still...

  • Jifaner

    I don't know why I care, but no way did that lady give birth 4 days before that picture. 4 weeks maybe. Even people in excellent shape have excess skin right after giving birth. It doesn't just snap back into place like nothing ever happened.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    She's got binder clips behind her back, like store mannequins.

  • Jifaner

    Bahahaha I should try that

  • rd

    Mr. Clooney "More polka dots than you could ever want"....his image instantly reminded me of..."Put Me in the Zoo" by Robert Lopshire

  • janetfaust

    Instant nostalgia seeing this picture. Thanks!
