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.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)
Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his
Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
