8 Things You Can Learn Today In Less Than The Time It Takes to Complete Your Bathroom Break

  • The picture above is from Aaron Paul's twitter account, and it made my genitalia crawl up inside of me and hide behind my left kidney. I do find it amusing how much Skyler-Walter actually looks like Flynn.

  • I suppose that knowing Mitt Romney's favorite shows are "30 Rock," "Friday Night Lights," "Modern Family," "Seinfeld" and "American Idol" is supposed to humanize him, but when you put "American Idol" among that collection of shows, it only makes you look like you're pandering because no one who likes "American Idol" also liked "Friday Night Lights," and no one who likes "30 Rock" would advocate cutting funding to NPR and PBS, and no one who loves "Modern Family" would hold a position against gay marriage.

    Meanwhile, President Obama also loves "Modern Family," but also "Boardwalk Empire," "The Wire," and "Homeland," but what else would you expect from an anti-colonialist hellbent on taking down America from the inside.

  • According to IndieWire, Ryan Gosling co-wrote and will make his directorial debut on How to Catch a Monster, a surreal drama set in a "vanishing city," that will also feature an "underwater town." Christina Hendricks has been cast in the lead.


  • I don't see much long-term hope in Jorge Garcia's future, but it's good to see he's still bouncing around and getting some occasional work, including last season's cancelled "Alcatraz," and now "Once Upon a Time," where he has been cast, fittingly, as The Giant, according to TV Guide.

  • I used to have a wicked Father of the Bride crush on Kimberly Williams, who unfortunately went on to the deplorable "According to Jim." She's looking to get back in our good graces by being cast in "Nashville," Connie Britton's country and western music drama due out this fall. That, too, is fitting casting, as she's the wife of country singer Brad Paisley.

  • There are a couple of new promos out for the Observer-centric fifth season of "Fringe." Here's one featuring a bloody Walter, and head on over to Uproxx to see an even more intense promo where it looks like the Observers are about to snatch up Olivia and Pacey's kid.

  • Mike Newell has taken over directing duties from Ridley Scott on Reykjavik, a movie that centers on the 1986 summit between Reagan and USSR leader Mikhail Gorbachev. Michael Douglas has been cast as Ronald Reagan, according to THR.

  • Another Michael, this one Keaton, has been hired to replace Hugh Laurie as the CEO villain in the Robocop remake, after negotiations with Laurie fell through, according to Slashfilm. The Robocop remake is being directed by Jose Padhilla, will star Joel Kinnaman in the title role, and will also feature a smashing cast that includes Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jennifer Ehle, Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel, Michael K. Williams, and Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

    • EKnievel

      I didn't know what I was doing over the Labor Day weekend until I saw that Christina Hendricks gif.

    • Jezzer

      I've seen worse. Nightmarishly worse. Behold: NEWTLISTA.

    • Forbiddendonut

      Ryan Gosling was spotted in Detroit for the filming of "How to Catch a Monster", which means that The 'Donut is now the second tastiest man in "The D".

    • John W

      Kimberly Williams was hot. She coulda been the Anne Hathaway of her day.

    • Mr_Zito

      You just can't get it right... it's JOSÉ PADILHA! Padilha, not Padhilla...

    • laylaness

      WHOA WHOA WHOA. Does this mean I get to watch Christina Hendricks and Baby Goose make out? Because, AWESOME.

    • Lauren_Lauren

      Excuse me while I run, screaming, off the Internet and back to bed where photos like that don't exist.

    • AudioSuede

      Jackie Earl Haley! Where you been man? Creeping people out, being an underrated actor?

      Jackie Earl fucking Haley.

    • Usually I'm okay with my breast size, but that Christina Hendricks gif made me understand that sometimes life is just not fair.

    • Pants-are-a-must

      I'd feel bad as well, but I'm still too busy staring at that gif, to be honest.

    • Neon

      Where is that scene taken from?

    • Chich

      That scene is actually from BEGGARS AND CHOOSERS. Don't ask me why I know that. I just do.

    • Uriah_Creep

      It is indeed from "Beggars and Choosers". If you think your boner and/or lions can handle it, head over to

      Beggars And Choosers

    • Pants-are-a-must

      I'm not a Hendricks expert, but I'm pretty sure it's from Firefly.

    • celery

      I don't think it is...but I have no alternate suggestion.

    • nosio

      Word, Elissa. Word.

    • zyzzyva

      As a staunch believer, that gif makes me sad as it's the most compelling evidence for the "fake" argument I've seen thus far... They don't appear to pass the Lying Down Test.

    • Neon

      They're still in their bra. I don't think the Lying-Down test applies...?

    • shardik

      Pretty sure that test only applies for boobs that are not currently encased in a push-up bra

    • zyzzyva

      Yes, the test usually applies for the movement/migration (or lack there of) when lying down. However, when lying down, implants are more likely to shift and display the revealing upper profile -- precise half-round outline/ridge -- that doesn't occur with natural breast tissue. Newer methods involve placing the implant under the muscle to better hide this.

      A push up bra will mostly prevent boobs from flattening whilst lying down, yes, but not create such a "cantaloupe effect," if you will.

      I'm guessing you are not yourself a possessor of [large] boobs and (what I affectionately call) an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder?

      (Also, @ Elissa R & nosio: the grass is *not* greener over here. Honest.)

    • Fabius_Maximus

      Er... the sideboob shots from Firefly show that they are real. IIRC that gif is from a TV show she did before that.

    • shardik

      Ahahahaha, nope, I'm just an, ah, interested, male. But I shall defer to your knowledge in this area.

      All that said, the possibility of Hendricks' girls being enhanced does nothing to deter mah boner..

    • zyzzyva

      Hahaha, and by all means, boner away.

    • Bert_McGurt

      Oh, and I think I speak for everyone's reaction to that header picture when I say:

    • Bert_McGurt

      What's extra funny about that segue is that Michael Keaton's real name is Michael Douglas.
      Also, I know she's married and all, but I'm going to be the first one to suggest, based on no information whatsoever, that Hendricks and Baby Goose are hooking up. Mostly because it'd cause significant squeeing around these parts, were it true.

    • Isn't Baby Goose dating Eva Mendes?

    • Bert_McGurt

      So I've heard. But we don't like her as much as we like Ms. Hendricks.
      Think of it as dream-casting adultery.

    • Adrienne Marie

      That would suck because Christina Hendricks is married to the most adorable geek ever. Though Baby Goose could do better than Eva Mendes.

    • Pants-are-a-must

      I'm waiting for the inevitable post about the new images of Thranduil, because they have made this shitty, RNC-infested week into a shitty, RNC-infested week in which I make "YOU GO GURL" snaps at Lee Pace.

    • zyzzyva

      To quote a Pajiba commenter (who I unfortunately forgot to write down...): "He's the first man whose eyebrows I wanted to run my hands through."

    • Fabius_Maximus

      He kind of looks like Saoirse Ronan...

    • Anne At Large

      Wow. Just. Wow.

    • Danar the Barbarian

      Ashamed to admit that when I saw the header pic I thought it was Erasure in drag.
