Is Anne Hathaway the Alison Brie of The Dark Knight Rises?
Emily Nussbaum has a great piece up about the passionate fanhoods of "Doctor Who" and "Community" and the parallels to that fandom in Dan Harmon's third season. (New Yorker)
Will Ferrell, James McAvoy, Woody Harrelson, and Chef Ramsey were all part of a HUGE celebrity soccer events, and here's a lot of images, best of which is Ramsey getting his tuckus kicked and being carted off the field. (Movieline)
I am stoked about The Dark Knight Rises, but why is the marketing department selling Anne Hathaway's sex appeal so hard? She's like the Alison Brie of "Community," only Alison Brie was used to try to introduce new people to the series. Everyone already knows The Dark Knight Rises. Is Batman not a big enough selling point? The high heel, really? (GammaSquad)
I'm just sayin'.
This brilliant fucking GIF captures Jack Nicholson behind the scenes as he prepares for his signature, "Here's Johnny" line delivery. Every time I see that scene now, I'll imagine what was going on behind the door in the second before Kubrick yelled, ACTION. (Unreality)
FilmDrunk is the only other site on the Internet that has as much fun as Charming Potato's expense than we do, and they really go balls out with it. Although, C-Tates? It doesn't have the same ring, but nice job with the storyboards, Burnsy. (FilmDrunk)
For those of you who aren't sick of hearing about "Community" yet (and really, I love the show, but I need the hiatus), there is a very cool, real-life #sixseasonsandamovie art show. Here are the highlighted artworks. (The Mary Sue)
Back when they were teenagers, Christian Bale once went on a date with Drew Barrymore. CAN YOU IMAGINE? He probably just glared at her the whole time, seething while she rolled her eyes obliviously. (Celebitchy)
Bieberrific Patriots QB, Tom Brady, appears to actually have a sense of humor buried underneath layers of prettiness. This Funny or Die video is better than anything he ever did on "SNL," but COME ON, Brady. At least attempt a Boston accent. (SmokingSection)
On the subject of Boston area sports people, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona is apparently texting pictures of himself in a towel to a much younger woman. (Deadspin)
This? Fantastic. Someone calculated the points for every cast member on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" Wayne Brady by a mile. (Blogowolf)
Damn, people. You gotta have some kind of memory to be able to compile a list of the 10 Best Botched Escapes from "Gilligan's Island." I probably saw every episode when I was a kid, but all I remember is the Harlem Globetrotters. (See Also, Scooby Doo). (Neatorama)
For those of you who like beach photography and celebrities, this retrospective slideshow has you covered. (Vanity Fair)
You know, I don't know who is more wrong in this scenario: Dominic Monaghan for outing Matthew Fox as a frequent beater of women, or Matthew Fox for frequently beating women. OH WAIT. I do know who is more wrong. I don't give a shit if its tacky of Monagan to tweet that. (WG)
For those of you who complain that I feature too many kid-related links (cram it, Bweaves, or I'll hang a GIF outside your bedroom window), apparently, France is the place to go if you hate your children. Paddydog sends along this collection of horrifiying French children's book covers. (Guardian)
Peter Dinklage is a Pimp, y'all! This wasn't actually on the side of the building; it was superimposed, but it was so convincing that George Takei thought it was real and posted the image below. (Yahoo!)
Don't do it, Jason Bateman! Stay away from Adam Shankman (Rock of Ages) projects. They're great for Tom Cruise's mid-life crisis, but not for actors who have a good head on their shoulders. You, too, Leslie Mann. (TheFilmStage)
Speaking of Cruise, I know you're all mad as hell that he was cast in One Shot over someone like Dwayne Johnson, but now that it's been retitled Jack Reacher, at least you can all enjoy the porn title permutations. (Collider)
You guys know Rebecca Hall, yes? Fantastic actress. She was in The Town and Please Give, among others. She's also due to be in Iron Man 3. But in the trailer for Stephen Frears Lay the Favorite (with Bruce Willis and Joshua Jackson (RIP)), you'll see her like you never have before: A smiley, bimbo Elizabeth Berkley-type. (Slashfilm)
Hey! Here's some meaningless scuttlebutt about who may take the role of Finnick in Catching Fire, a list that includes the year's least successful abtastic franchise actor. (The Playlist)
Michael Jackson! Now even creepier than previously believed! He signed his love notes, "Turd." (TMZ)
A new teaser for the upcoming season of "Dexter" is out. It's short and completely uninformative, but it'll probably be better than the actual season of "Dexter."
