Introducing the Star of Taylor Swift's Next Album ... Matthew Gray Gubler?

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | July 19, 2013 | Comments ()


Kris Jenner is reportedly “annoyed” that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have no plans to wed. One would think that she’d be relieved to avoid another embarrassing, 72-day marriage, but I guess (as always) Kris is only seeing the potential dollar signs. (Us Weekly)

Woody Allen claims that he’s so inspired by Louis CK that he’s even considering returning to stand-up comedy. (Film Drunk)

Girls can surf in high heels, and here is video proof of that phenomenon. (Videogum)

What an amazing cast — John Hawkes, Josh Brolin, Jason Clark, and Jake Gyllenhaal — all poised to harness up for Everest. (Slashfilm)

Ben & Jerry’s flavor or Pottery Barn paint color? This quiz is surprisingly tough. (Mental Floss)

Huh. So that “dragon” skull that washed up on a Dorset beach was just a “Game of Thrones” marketing ploy. I feel much better now. (Warming Glow)


Oh, this story is scrumptuous. Apparently, Taylor Swift and Matthew Gray Gubler have been quietly dating since at least the beginning of this month, and Taylor is hesitant to reveal this relationship because, you know, we’ll all make jokes about her upcoming breakup single, “Gray.” (Celebitchy)

Eva Longoria is allegedly spreading the word that George Clooney wanted to break up with Stacy Keibler to be with her. Strange but possibly true. (DListed)

David Fincher supposedly has the green light to go forth with The Girl Who Played with Fire. I thought we were going to pretend the first remake never happened. (Film School Rejects)

DC president Diane Nelson knows the drill and has admitted that Wonder Woman is an incredibly “tricky” character to bring to life. Yet she still acknowledges that this impending disaster is a “priority.” (The Mary Sue)

Sorry ladies, but Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that he’s got a bit of a crush on someone who is not you. He’s actually smitten with Matt Damon! Benny gushes about how “special” Matt is and how his “biggest wish” is to “hang out” with Matt on “a hot night where we’re all getting drunk and dancing.” Uh-huh. (Vulture)


Did you ever think your 20s would be just like Reality Bites? Then you’ll identify very strongly with this list. (Buzzfeed)

Athletes should never wear formalwear on the red carpet. Just their sports uniforms. Always. (Go Fug Yourself)

Jar Jar Binks finally gets what’s coming to him. Good — I can’t stand that creepy bastard. (Kotaku)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Lauren_Lauren

    What an amazing cast — John Hawkes, Josh Brolin, Jason Clark, and Jake Gyllenhaal — all poised to harness up for Everest.

    I hope they get matching jackets that say, "Acting, by J. Crew".

  • I can fix the Wonder Woman problem in one sentence: set it during WWII.

  • John W

    Marketing ploy? That's what they want you to believe.

  • Three_nineteen

    I bet that as we speak, Mrs. Damon is working her way up to suggesting a threesome.

  • minxy

    Happy Birthbatchday, Cumby! I hope he continues to make strides for the whimsically named.

  • Yocean

    That Buzzfeed list mostly applies to me except I grew up in Japan and had my first cell phone in...high school I think?

  • Yocean

    That Upr

  • maureenc

    I for one look forward to Benedict's rendition of "I'm F**king Matt Damon".

  • stella

    Godamnit Kris Jenner. Just stop. Please?

  • BobbFrapples

    Is it wrong that I'm proud to have gotten a 91% on the ice cream or paint color quiz? I feel like celebrating with some Cherry Garcia on a waffle cone...

  • lowercase_ryan

    So are the actual Sherpas that are going to carry the entire production up the mountain going to play themselves in the movie?

  • mairimba

    It's like the Duggar family in that Everest movie.

  • Bodhi

    That Buzzfeed list is like a snapshot into my 20s, I swear to Godtopus.

    I would love LOVE to be a fly on the wall during a Cumberbatch/Damon man date. Oh yes.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    The logos turtle. Oh. Takes me back.

  • Bodhi

    Right? The link at the bottom, 20 Status Symbols Gen Y Girls Grew Up With, is spot the hell on, too. I bought my own AG doll, though

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I'm a little too old for that list. We had Trapper Keepers, and Cabbage Patch were the statusy dolls in elementary school for me (I had - and wanted - none; they creeped me out). Lacostes were a thing, and we had some knockoffs with unicorn insignias in a rainbow of colors.

  • rio

    Well I guess she saw how popular the "dressed as hipsters" line was and thought, what if my next album is used to take down the pretentious hipster that's going to break my heart? Where can I find a cute hipster? NAILED IT.

    On the other hand, Gube, let me just tell you what they say in italy, "tira più un pelo di fica che un carro di buoi".

  • thatstrangewoman


  • Bert_McGurt

    That' unexpected coupling.

    I'm guessing we haven't heard about it 'till now because Joe Mantegna had a little "talk" with Ms. Swifty.

  • Maguita NYC

    I'm actually hoping Ms. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler would have a much needed talk with Swifty. And soon.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Honestly I don't think Swift would realize/respect the importance of such a situation. It would be lost on her and more likely than not she would think they were seeking her friendship. Yada, yada, yada Taylor is forever unworthy of Amy and Tina's time.

  • Maguita NYC

    Leave it to the grand Ms. Tina Fey to make her point heard.

    She did after all deal with Alec Baldwin for over 7 seasons. The woman is gnarly and could outlive the most persistent of objections. That, and Amy Poehler's angelic voice.

    I have hope!

  • lowercase_ryan

    The most persuasive arguments fail when they fall on deaf ears. Taylor just doesn't get it and I honestly am starting to wonder if she ever will. She's like a Mormon Bieber with a better PR team.

  • Maguita NYC

    A Mormon Bieber... A Mormon Bieber... I'm quite sure there is a joke in bad taste in those two words, but for the life of me can't think of one.

    And sadly, no matter my faith in the Super-Feyhler duo, I believe you might be right. For Swifty would have at least changed her tune (literally) for the past 2 boyfriends if she remotely was equipped with self-assessment instead of self-delusion.

  • lowercase_ryan

    admittedly I have no idea where I was going with that. I just think they are both similarly detached from reality and couldn't care less. I think he's headed for more trouble as he's starting to act out more, she always seems to be in control. But neither has any clue what the real world is like. Wait, yeah, that's what I was going for.

  • Maguita NYC

    Get your fine ass to Comic-Con thread. The fun started. Also, Baked goods.

  • Maguita NYC

    I understand and support Cumberbatch in his man crush. I mean, who could ever resist that bedazzled Speedo.

  • I don't think he saw that yet, otherwise he would have included Rob Lowe on general principle.

  • Maguita NYC

    Maybe his man crush on Damon is exactly because of Candelabra.

    I mean that physique, that hair, those tight pants, that bikini, and let us not forget the best of all: Damon humping on Douglas.

    For that alone, you would forget the amazingly tight face of Rob Lowe. That and Arrested Development's Lucille Bluth.

  • Slash

    WTF would you want to surf in heels? That's pants-on-head stupid.

  • Oh, Eva, you tiny little person! It must be sad to resort to such measures in order to keep your name out there. One might have thought the 'desperate' would have washed off once the show ended, but one would have thought wrongly.

  • So really the only thing that matters in this PLove is...Kat Dennings is available?

    And since TK is happily married, I have no competition?


    ADDENDUM: I am amazed that the Cumberbatch/Damon thing hasn't gotten more comments. But the day's not over yet.

  • emmalita

    We're all busy in our bunks. We will comment later when our brains start functioning again.

  • Fredo

    Other songs in Taylor Swift's album will include "Of 2 Minds", "Dr Reid, Heal My Heart" and "Criminal".

  • BigBlueKY

    Wait, dragons aren't real?

  • Fredo

    I hold that they are, but that they're all asleep deep underground, guarding mountains of gold and jewels and ignoring the world they left behind eons ago until their greed overcomes their apathy and they rise again to wreck vengeance on a humanity that never knew them.

  • In Wales...

  • pfeiffer87

    I can verify this.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Was it on Pajiba or somewhere else that I heard about the Taylor Swift radio contest in Boston? Because I find that news hilarious and disturbing at the same time.

  • toblerone

    Kat Dennings and Taylor Swift? That's a pretty impressive line up for a guy named Gubler.

    Swift is definitely hate f*ck worthy.

    No Starcher link?

    *Kreiger should really be Spock and Cyril should be Bones.

  • Adrienne Marie

    Oh god no. Keep the Gube away from her!!!!!!!
