Nick Cannon Guns for the Richard Pryor Biopic Lead

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | July 7, 2014 | Comments ()


The Harry Potter theme park expansion revealed a few easter eggs, including some new info about the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie. (Slashfilm)

Dustin talks about the first teaser for The Walking Dead S5. The show seems a little bit pressed for a teaser since they only began shooting last week, but one must feed a hungry audience. (WG)

Taylor Swift’s “family portrait” consisted of several female celebrities at her Fourth of July party. No dudes at all. She’s saving them for the next album-writing party. (DListed)

Prince William’s new royal portrait is some kind of Lucian Freud-esque nightmare. Off with that painter’s head? Oh, never mind. The portrait is downright hilarious. (GFY)

Gwyneth Paltrow tried to get down with the pedestrians by eating at a food truck and shopping at Costco. Who knew that coconut water could be cheaper at Costco? What a discovery. Goop is probably cleansing this week to get rid of the icky-people germs. (Lainey)

We’re still in the midst of a slow news cycle, so these Disney mashups of OITNB characters seem pretty fascinating. (TMS)

Chris Pratt says that Anna Faris prefers him “fat” instead of in his Guardians of the Galaxy physicality. (CB)

Dare I say that Cara Delevigne has the prettiest middle finger in all of celebrity land? Shemar Moore is also flexing, in case you care. (ASL)

Kanye West is the latest celebrity to throw the “rape” word around as a metaphor for having his picture taken. Have a million seats, Kanye. (Mirror)

Nick Cannon might be playing Richard Pryor in a biopic. Man, Richard Pryor would be so pissed off about this casting news. (Uproxx)

This interactive storm cloud light may make you bust out the wallet for an early Christmas present to yourself. Or you can just live vicariously by watching this video. Yeah, do that. (Unreality)

Solange Knowles finally opens up about going ballistic on Jay-Z in an elevator. Of course, she takes no accountability at all for her actions. Now you all know who Solange Knowles is, which is what really matters. (INO)

Vanity Fair has conducted an online poll covering all sorts of important matters of etiquette. It’s good to know that Carrie Bradshaw’s breakup via a Post-It still gets some decent airplay. (VF)

Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo, and she talked the Flaming Lips guy into getting the same one. It was a house party, y’all. (PS)

I’m bummed that the Fourth of July is over, so let’s end with a discussion of how fireworks get their colors. So preeetty. (MF)

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Parsnip

    I think Michael B. Jordan should play Pryor.

  • BlackRabbit

    Wait, Chris Pratt is with Anna Faris? Lucky bastard.

    Chris Pratt says that Anna Faris prefers him “fat” instead of in his Guardians of the Galaxy physicality.

    We may be witnessing history here: this is the first time I can recall not being 100% on board with a guy being mushier. Don't get me wrong, Pratt is adorable mushy, but structuring his lumps a little differently for the action films has had a warping effect on my brain somehow.

    Now you all know who Solange Knowles is, which is what really matters.

    Yeah, Solange was the one who got knocked up at sixteen and therefore couldn't use the baby as part of her overall career strategy.

    ...how fireworks get their colors. So preeetty.

    And so sciency, too!

    "Nick Cannon might be playing Richard Pryor in a biopic."

    You know what scares me more? Who's going to play Gene Wilder? NOBODY can play Gene Wilder.

  • AvaLehra

    The correct answer is Gene Wilder -- and sans any make up or special effects. He just looks the way he looks now and no one even mentions it or bats an eye during the film.

  • dilwazr

    I think a lot of people know who Solange Knowles is? Her music has been really well-received critically, and she's played a lot of major festivals.

  • stardust

    That cloud light is pretty co.......ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD.

  • Jo 'Mama' Besser

    That sounds like something Steve Carlsburg's double would say. Just shut up and let us live!

  • luckypete

    I can't believe Wayne Coyne of THE FLAMING LIPS (and his wife, by proxy) has a matching tattoo with Miley Cyrus. I guess this is Coyne's way of keeping people off guard, though anything would've been better than legitimizing Cyrus.

    Slow news cycle? This is the summer doldrums of news cycles. The good ship Pajiba is floating in circles.

  • We'd all be rather on a beach somewhere. Even the news.

  • BlackRabbit

    Cabin Fever!

    Guest, I'm not sue why you removed the comment, but that painting is a delight. Every newly engaged couple should have a painting with their deceased relatives hovering over them.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    That's not Kate's hand.

  • Dulce et Banana
  • elsie_the_first

    That's really bad. But you have to admit that their faces look so much better than the one on the GFY link. The skin color is really weird and one eye is larger than the other in that portrait.

  • Dulce et Banana

    yes, true but then I notice how the artist gave the poor woman a GIANT head.

  • emmalita

    I felt the same way, and then I remembered he is married to Mariah Carry. Man's got some darkness in him.

  • He's hilarious...
