Which Harry Potter Kid Holds the Award for Most Improved on the Hotness Scale?
Speaking of getting soused, Brian Prisco will be heading to Comic Con this weekend with plans to cover it Hunter S. Thompson style, which is to say: Get sh*tfaced, stumble around, and write down his thoughts. Thankfully, that is not among the 8 Ways to Die at Comic-Con. (FilmSchoolRejects)
Since I began guest spots over on Uproxx, I've tried to get more in tune with "web culture." Apparently, this means spending a lot of time on Tumblr and following the latest trends, like planking, owling, and photobombing sexy photo-shoots. (Uproxx)
Another one of the more amusing Internet memes going around right now is splicing footage of classic actors reaction (violently) to Adam Sandler's Jack and Jill trailer, like this one which has George C. Scott popping a vein, as he rightfully should. (FilmDrunk)
This is not meme-ish, but EW's first look at Elle Fanning in Francis Ford Coppolla's upcoming horror flick, Twixt, demonstrates that -- of the current class of young Hollywood actresses -- Elle Fanning may just be at the tippity tip top. (Slashfilm)
While we're checking out First Looks, here's one of Ryan Gosling in George Clooney's Ides of March that ask a very important question: Why is your shirt on, Little Goose? (Hollywood.com)
I'm typically non-plussed by lists of now-famous actors in roles we don't remember them from (say, Shia LaBeouf in Charlie's Angels 2), but who knew Seth Rogen was in Donnie Darko? Who? Oh, you are lying. Or that Stephen Colbert was on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" I've seen Almost Famous at least a dozen times, but I always forget that Rainn Wilson was in it. Check out this fascinating list of other examples. (Unreality)
Women's dreams of urinating while standing up are now one step closer to reality. (The Mary Sue)
What is the Internet's sudden obsession with the hotness of Harry Potter's Neville Longbottom? Still looks goofy to me, only now he wears better suits. I will grant him the award among the Harry Potter cast for most improved. (GoFugYourself)
I'm done weighing in on the issue of film critics, transparency, conflicts of interests, and swag because, frankly, it's hard to get anyone to care. Online media has steamrolled over the issue. But, our own Drew Morton offers up a piece on that very issue elsewhere. (DR. MABUSE'S KALEIDO-SCOPE)
Look, folks! It's finally time for Gary Oldman to shine. Shine like the shining shiny thing that you are, Gary. (Movieline)
"Game of Thrones" has been off the air now for three weeks, but the Internet can't get enough of the show, at least until it gears up for two months of "Breaking Bad" memes. This, however, is stellar: "Damn It Feels Good to Be a Lannister." Don't it, y'all? (Via WarmingGlow)
