Murray, Goodman, Poehler, Hamm: Five Things You May Not Have Heard About This Week

Stuff of Importance.

5. Amy Poehler Imparted Thoughtful and Sound Advice.

The "Parks and Rec" queen sent out her love to Boston and wisely reflected upon choosing what we want to see, as part of her Smart Girls advice series.

4. Jon Hamm Hung Out with Elmo.

I'm sure there's something wrong with ogling a hot, bearded dude while watching "Sesame Street," but hey, Elmo's done worse (allegedly). Go ahead, groan. Then watch Le Hamm and try not to think about, sculpture!

3. We Got a Look at the First Thor: The Dark World Poster.


His hammer is his hammer! The snowy poster precedes the teaser trailer, set to debut this Tuesday. The Dark World will pit mighty Thor against Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) and his Dark Elves, reunite him with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) (ptooey!), and hopefully provide a few brotherly love chuckles when Hemsworth and Hiddleston lock horns again. The film is set to hit theaters November 8th.

2. Amazon Studios Put Us in the Driver's Seat.

I'm usually all about being against The Man, but dammit, Amazon keeps doing smart shit. I succumb. The mega-conglomerate's studio division put 14 series pilots online and asked us to watch and help decide which ones should live. That's right, we get to play crusty, old network executive. And guess what? Some of them have unbelievably great talent behind them, like "Alpha House" (see above), starring Bill Murray and John Goodman, and written by Garry Trudeau. So put your power where your mouth is (?) and vote.

1. New Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel Clips Featured Villainous Threats.

Michael Shannon's General Zod or Benedict Cumberbatch's John Harrison...who's the bigger badass? Who shall wreak the most havoc? Which film shall kick the other's ass? My money's on Man of Steel.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) did not cry watching the Man of Steel trailer; she merely choke-sobbed a tad.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Can't we drop the blah Natalie Portman and keep Kat Dennings? No matter the story line, Kat is always so much more fun to watch interacting with hunky men.

  • bimboden

    I think Bill Murray is just a guest spot in the Alpha House pilot with the option to come back for cameos sporadically in the series? How Amazon got his answering machine to agree to the role is beyond me... Good on 'em.

  • Man of Steel over Star Trek? I like where your heads at, Cindy.

  • Maguita NYC

    Cumberbatch has to intensely fix his cold stare at you to make you wince, whereas Michael Shannon needs only to look, and you will cower in terror knowing he will hunt your nightmares.

  • Danar the Barbarian

    As a stay-at-home mom, I appreciate Sesame Street's decision to intersperse plenty of eye candy in between Elmo and friends. Worth Youtube-ing are Paul Rudd's turn as Prince Charming (as adorable as you'd imagine), and my personal favorite, Jason Schwartzmann as the host of an Iron Chef spoof. The kids get their Cheerios and I get my own sweets! Well done, PBS!

  • e jerry powell

    Hamms and Hammers. There are some filthy-minded people up in here...

  • Guest

    No Stringer in Thor 2? Or does he not rate a name drop this time?

  • John W

    It doesn't matter if Zod or Harrison causes the most damage because in each case all the hero has to do is travel back in time and undo the damage. Right?

  • Thor AND Hamm?

    Hello, gentlemen. I'd like to extend you an invitation to the...pants party.

    Is that how you afforded all those fancy Umlaut things? I am jealous!

  • Natallica

    ... where nobody wears pants!

  • Anne At Large

    I feel like your username is totally inappropriate in this context. And I rarely say that.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Considering the location of this party, I think my username is HIGHLY appropriate.

  • MsMoMo

    Elmo and Hamm. "Show them *your* sculpture Mr John". Tee Hee, titter, groan.
