Listen, do you ever get the feeling that Fassbender and Gosling are just messing with you? And by "you" I mean you, mortal dudes. We'll get back to those talented, photogenic *ssholes in a second. For now let's look at a Pajiba hero who's a little closer to earth. Temperamental genius, erstwhile "Community" showrunner and potential heir to the McFarlane/Groening animated throne, Dan Harmon, dressed up as The Goblin King for Halloween. If you asked me, he nailed it. (Harmontown)

Is anyone watching "Arrow"? No? Bueller? Well then, I guess you won't care that a "Doctor Who"/"Torchwood" fav is the show's new Big Bad. (THR)

Speaking of the sexually irrepressible, James Bond and his many partners are the subject of this fittingly named "nymphographic." If you look at the numbers, you'll see Daniel Craig is getting significantly shorted. (Nymphographic)

The "Business Week" cover in reaction to Hurricane Sandy warms my hippe, treehugger, liberal heart. It really does. (Bloomsburg Business Week)

You know that moment when you're firing up your favorite show and the "Previously On" segment spoils the episode you're about to watch. Annoying, no? Someone got mad enough to write a whole thing about it. (Unreality)

A screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show was always a Halloween tradition around the Robinson household. (There, does that suitably explain away my abnormalities?) The Rejects gave the movie the old "Mindhole Blower" treatment. Alas, the commentary doesn't reveal how Curry got those killer legs. (FSR)

Marion Cotillard glued some roses to her bosom for "Harpers Bazaar." In a dive bar somewhere in Van Nuys, Mena Suvari is demanding her signature look back. (Celebitchy

I think this dude managed to cover all the geek bases this Halloween. What say you? (Reddit)

Here's all the information that's fit to print about then new season of "Luther." Can we start a letter writing campaign demanding the return of Alice Morgan? (Warming Glow)

And, oh yeah, Fassbender and Gosling took a break from working on that Terrence Malick project to do some charitable work. Drool away, Merrill. Drool away. (FD)

Finally, RDJ pulls a pretty adorable "oh sh*t" face in this great "Call Of Duty" commercial directed by Guy Ritchie.

    WHAT in heaven's name is Bond doing to Dame Diana RIgg in that infographic?! (That was a rhetorical interrobang. I know what he's doing.)

  • Yocean

    Ok as awesome as that geek costume guy is, he could have had a damn sword or ring or bow to represent fantasy geekery! Why go Jack Sparrow when you can Arragorn! Or, like, at least have a Ned's head.

    Rant end.

  • BlackRabbit

    Too bad they couldn't somehow get Michael Rosenbaum to do Deadshot. He had a great voice for it. Green Arrow doesn't really have a huge Rogues Gallery, so Barrowman may well be someone new.

  • Ley

    *SKYFALL SPOILERS*

    Obviously you can add Solange to that list. Also, Javier Bardem (!), depending on how you saw it.

  • Even Stevens

    Add me to the list of people watching Arrow. It's not high brow viewing, but damn if it isn't highly entertaining, and sometimes that's all I need.

  • Quatermain

    I'm right there with you. It's not the second coming of Shakespeare, but it does alright as far being reasonably entertaining goes.

  • Of course I'm watching Arrow. It's fun and has a frequently shirtless hero with interesting tattoos and scars. Also, Paul Blackthorne and a suitable amount of stylized violence. Barrowman was just the icing on the cake.

  • NateMan

    I entirely approve of all the scars. I thoroughly approve of violence in media, but it drives me nuts when there are no long term ramifications from it.

    That's one (of many) reasons I'm a big fan of the How To Train Your Dragon movie, actually. Hiccup goes to do battle with a big, scary dragon, and comes back minus a leg. They show him having to accept it, albeit quickly, and doesn't shy away from the fact that even when doing the right thing, there are often ramifications.Bit off topic, I know, but hey, that's what the Internet is for.

  • Scars are long-term ramifications. He just isn't old enough yet to feel all those aches and pains from the crap he's doing now. I suppose we don't see a lot of serious damage to comic book heroes because the creators are invested in them being mostly indestructible, so they can keep the franchise going. On the other hand, the people he's inflicting violence upon are definitely feeling the ramifications, which is supposed to make us okay with the fact that he's pretty much a killing machine.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    You mean "Bloomberg Business Week" right? 'Cause Bloomsburg is a little Pennsylvania college town where I did some actressin', and I have a hard enough time calling each by the appropriate name.

    (also, doesn't appear to be an actual link for that one)

  • Bodhi

    You have to click on the "continue to" link on the top right

  • Puddin

    You know when you're typing and you stare at a word for too long and it starts to look really weird? Well, I must have looked at Gosling's picture for too long because he's starting to look like a meerkat.

  • Green Lantern

    *raises hand* I am TOTALLY watching "Arrow", because of course I am.

    Frankly I was expecting it to suck. When it did NOT suck, I became interested and have watched it consistently. Oh it's not without its problems, but I was expecting about a "3" out of 10 and feel like I got a "7".

    These are my standards. You are welcome to your own.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I feel similarly. There is a level on which I know I should not like it, because it's basically like someone is making a Nolan Batman show, only they're not very good at it and they have to settle for the other rich DC superhero instead, and yet still, kinda like it.

  • TheOtherGreg

    Also, I'm kind of enjoying Arrow, too.

  • TheOtherGreg

    Bond seduces Solange, the wife of Dimitrios, in the first 15 minutes of Casino Royale. Who knows what other omissions there are.

  • Samantha Klein

    But did Gosling and/or Fassbender RUN the 5k, and if so, what were their times? Running geeks want to know.

  • Samantha Klein

    I hope Fassbender runs faster than I do. I could TOTALLY pull some serious PRs if I were trying to catch him.

  • Puddin

    The guy smokes like a chimney. You could catch him by power walking.

  • Three_nineteen

    John Barrowman being on Arrow is the entire reason I'm watching the show. And it's funny that you would talk about not liking spoilers right after posting the spoiler about Barrowman being the Big Bad.

  • Even Stevens

    It's not really a spoiler, as he was introduced in last night's episode and was quite obviously Eeeeeevil

  • Three_nineteen

    You are absolutely right - I got the days mixed up because I hadn't seen the episode yet.

  • NateMan

    I for one am watching and enjoying Arrow. It's no Supernatural, but it's better than Smallville and I'd say the best mainstream comic adaptation that's been on TV despite its occasional corniness. They don't shy away from the violence in a hero named after a high velocity stabby thing, which I appreciate. My biggest peeve with it has to be last week's episode, where an assassin codenamed Deadshot (I think, I haven't finished the episode) was the main bad guy, and they had a scene where he was tattooing the names of his victims on his body.

    Really. A highly skilled assassin, who travels the globe shooting people for money, enscribes the names of his victims on his skin. Not in code, not in Roman numerals or hash marks, not even initials. He just writes them out. WTF is he planning to do if he ever gets interrogated, hope they never ask him to take his shirt off?

  • Bert_McGurt

    I'm just sorry they couldn't get Guy Pearce.

  • I was bothered by that, as well. My husband shrugged and said "He doesn't expect to get caught. Also, he might be insane, depending on the incarnation." What was more irksome is that the character was famous for never missing, and he missed all over the damned place.

  • Funky_Brewster

    Don't knock the Dive Bars in Van Nuys. Springbok, Ireland 32's, and The Pineapple Hill are all pretty good times.
