Who Fills Out A Clingy Action Suit Better Than Anne Hathaway? Idris Elba That's Who.

By Joanna Robinson | Pajiba Love | June 8, 2012 | Comments ()


Happy Friday y'all. I want to give a quick shout out to all of you who send me links via Twitter, email, Facebook and carrier pigeon. You are the best. But the MVP award has to go to Bierce Ambrose based on volume alone. Here's a classic Ambrosian link that maps the recent "zombie" (aka psychotic, bath salt-induced flesh eating) incidents in the U.S. Let's all steer clear of Florida, shall we? (Google Maps)

Speaking of the zombocalypse, here's the first look at The Governor character from the next season of "The Walking Dead." I do love me some Morrissey (both the band and the actor). There's also a snap of the new "Doctor Who" companion who still just looks like a very pretty girl. Yawnsofar. (The Mary Sue)

The Governor makes another appearance in this link but, more importantly, we get the first photo of Idris Elba from Guilermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim. If y'all are disappointed by the amount of Spacesuit Elba in Prometheus, then this film is for you. (MovieHole)

But while we're on the subject of suiting up, you Fitzgerald purists will be pleased to know that Saville Row has been working with Baz on The Great Gatsby to make sure the 20s fashion is up to snuff. (Gothamist)

Speaking of the Fitzgeralds, it has come to my attention that some of you didn't know Loki (aka Tom Hiddleston) played F. Scott in Midnight In Paris. Well now you know. Go see the movie. Again if you must.

And Mrs. Zelda Fitgerald makes an appearance on this great list of famous flapper glamor shots. They're showing ankles and KNEES. Scandalous. (Mental Floss)

Mrs. Doubtfire recut as a horror movie? Makes a drive-by fruiting sound much more ominous, no? Warning...the video starts automatically on this page. (Evil Beet)

A music writer in Boise threw all journalistic impartiality out the window with this delightfully scathing Nickelback write up. (Laughing Squid)

And speaking of scathing, watch a man's entire life unravel via Twitter after he tries to hit on his airplane seat mate. He had it coming...I think... (Oh No, Polio)

Similarly, this young man has made a bit of a fool of himself in pursuit of a lady. He knows Convention Booth Babes are paid to be nice to dorks...yes? (Craiglist)

Did you know this? I did not know this. (via Keg Works)

Of all the Hollywood scandals, it's the Scientology ones that always get me. I cannot wait for the inevitable collapse of the major Power Players and for all the secrets to come tumbling, pouring, gushing forth. Nicole Kidman (ex-wife of Power Player Tom Cruise) recently invited Kelly Preston (beleaguered wife of Power Player John Travolta) to come seek refuge on her ranch. DEPROGRAMMING OR TOTALLY INNOCUOUS? You decide. (Celebitchy)

Have you seen this woman's photography? It's absolutely stunning. And that's not the cronyism talking. (Etsy)

Dustin has listed the ten best episodes of the 2011-2012 season and he's absolutely dead on. (WG)

Coulrophobes beware, Cary Fukunaga will be directing a two-part remake of Stephen King's "It." Sure, yes, good luck out-creeping Tim Curry. (THR)

And, finally, I'm contractually obliged to post this "Daily Show" interview with Michael Fassbender. Despite Dan's tepid Prometheus review, I'll be the first in line to see the Fassbot in action tonight.

Joanna Robinson eagerly awaits the day they pay Booth Bros to be nice to dorks like her.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Lucyem

    Morrissey isn't a band, he's a he. He was in the Smiths at one point, but under that name he's a solo artist. I like the idea of him as a one-man band, though. I wonder if his recently-announced 'retirement' is just to allow him time to learn the accordian, pursuant to a one-man band future...

  • Johnnyboy

    I have ALWAYS been taught you pour wine to the top of the Solo Cup!!! Damn you, mom and dad!

  • googergieger

    Those are my pj's. Pajamas not the nineties cartoon.

  • Test.

  • Idris Elba, YUM.

    Also, Midnight in Paris is worth a rewatch for a lot of reasons - including catching all the artists and author cameos - you'll miss them on first viewing.

  • Vi
  • DominaNefret

    I'm just going to leave this right here...


  • lowercase_ryan

    And Joanna, I'm sure any Booth Bum (I can't afford the douche jar fee's associated with saying Bro, from which girls are exempt)  with half a clue would trip over himself to get to be nice to a dork like you. 

  • L.O.V.E.

    Yah, but Kate Beckinsale FTW.

  • BierceAmbrose

    I'm an adjective now? So, this is what it feels like to have arrived.

    I'd like to thank the academy ...

  • Forbiddendonut

    Wait a second.  Dustin's list of the ten best episodes of the 2011-2012 season includes episodes from "Cougar Town", "Parenthood" and is topped off by an episode of "Community"?  WTF?  It's like I don't even know the guy anymore.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    That Twittering is too much. Ouch.

    though the tweet about him removing his wedding ring is not on her feed.

  • CMooreVerdad

    Forget Spacesuit Elba, I prefer Birthday Suit Elba.

  • TheMaskedEmu


  • TheMaskedEmu


  • F'mal DeHyde

    That Solo cup photo is wrong.  Cross out beer and put wine for that top measurement.

  • L.O.V.E.

     And just go ahead and remove that "liquor" line altogether and move the liquor line up to where "wine" is. 

    You know what, everybody just move up two notches.

  • Dear God. Hiddleston, Fassbender and Elba in one post? Happy Friday to meeeeeeeee.

    Also, people drink wine in 5 oz. servings? They are obviously doing it wrong. Bring on Big Joe (RIP).

  • TheOriginalMRod

    It is funny that this thread mentions the Fitzgeralds and solo cup drinking. It's like taking Downton Abbey and placing it in a trailer park somewhere in Arkansas.

    I think I will have to go home and make a Sidecar... or a martini...and NOT drink from a Solo cup.


  • Actually, just got back from seeing Prometheus ....it was actually good....I was pleasantly surprised. Oh and Charlize Theron fills out a clingy action suit better than anyone IMHO.

  • Hey Hey no need to piss on the permanently single. We've already failed enough as it is. Laughable as it is at least the kid has the balls to go for it. If I didn't have the interactions of Bar Maids that are paid to interact to me I'd be even lonelier.

  • lowercase_ryan

    - I take back everything I ever said about models, that one on twitter is awesome and why do people think they sound cool when they say things like "colabbo"??? Fuck you dick, you deserved to have those tweets read aloud over the PA by a flight attendant. what a piece of shit.

    - As if I needed another reason to avoid Florida.

    - The beer line works even better as a wine line thank you very much.

    - Is it sad that all it takes for me to get excited about a photographer on the internet these days is their non-use of fucking instagram?

    sweet, consolidating really makes me feel like I'm not carpet bombing the comments (Y)

  • Anna von Beav

    Oops! I was testing out that whole upvote/downvote thing and I accidentally downvoted you! I'M SORRY, LOWERCASE_RYAN! I DIDN'T MEAN IT!!

  • lowercase_ryan

    I've never been more offended in my life, save for all those other times when all those other things happened.

  • LaineyBobainey

    She did. She meant it. She's a rotten human. NICE GOING, VON BEAV.

  • Anna von Beav

    I meant that one.

  • LaineyBobainey


  • space_oddity

    Gah. How do we change listing from 'most popular' to 'oldest first?' Do not like this disqus format.

  • LaineyBobainey

    Top left where it says "Discussion", click that down arrow thinger and it will have the sort options.

    I like it because it lets me stalk people!

  • JoannaRobinson

    Under "discussion" you have three option.

  • JoannaRobinson

    Sorry. Typo. That comment was so carelessly done.

  • F'mal DeHyde

     Hahaha, same brain!  I wish I had seen your comment before writing the same thing.

  • mswas


  • mswas

    Great minds think alike

  • space_oddity

     - The beer line works even better as a wine line thank you very much.

    It works even better as a liquor line.

  • lowercase_ryan

    using the beer line as a liquor line I would never make it past the wine line

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I didn't see this in time to submit, but here's a link for the Bradbury fans - a pretty insightful piece about Bradbury's technophobic tendencies (NY Times)

    Side note: I'm pretty sure the writer was my correspondence creative writing tutor when I was in junior high.

  • ZombieNurse

    So...people drink liquor out of solo cups?  I was unaware.  One would think that if that was the case, they wouldn't be so concerned with measurements.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I hear they're hiring in Florida

  • $27019454

     "There's acid in the red cups."

  • fracas

    The Doctor's new sidekick looks kinda like Rose Tyler in that picture

  • PaddyDog

    That would be Magnus Martinsson.  Gah, Fridays.

  • $27019454

    I did NOT know that about the ubiquitous SOLO cups! I am going to make it my business to test all of these lines out this very night. Oh yes I am!

  • PaddyDog

    Don't forget Hiddleston was also  a fantastic Martin Martinsson in the English language Wallander TV series (with a bonus Kenneth Brannagh looking scruffy and redeeming himself completely from his icky Bonham Carter period)

  • lowercase_ryan

    why would you accept links from carrier pigeons but not ravens?

  • JoannaRobinson

    Because, silly, Theon had all the ravens killed.

  • John G.

    Shit, that's why all my ravens never came back.

  • lowercase_ryan

    we gotta do something about this Theon jerk

  • lowercase_ryan

    In Winterfell maybe, but I've always been a Riverrun kinda guy.

  • fracas

     Dark wings, dark words.

  • Rollo Treadway

    Please, PROOFREAD your work. Commas, spelling. Honestly, so carelessly done.

  • $27019454

     How great that you are perfect. Pin the gold medal upon his chest.

  • mswas

    Thank Godtopus she had no sentence fragments.
