Remember That Time Alison Pill Accidentally Tweeted A Topless Photo of Herself and 8 More Fully-Clothes News Items

  • The long in-development prequel to 300 has finally got a title, and it'll throw you for a loop. It's called 300: Rise of an Empire. Ironically, it's also the movie's porn title.

  • In case you missed it, it turns out that Alison Pill is as clumsy as her Newsroom character as she inadvertently tweeted out a topless photo of herself yesterday (you can look-see here, although it's NSFW). She quickly deleted it and offered up this apology:

    The most interesting part of that story, besides the fact that Pill wears HUGE glasses while posing topless, is that her fiance, Jay Baruchel, retweeted the apology, and I had no idea they were dating up until then (was it because they met on the set of Goon?)

    But, really: How do you accidentally tweet a photo of yourself topless?

  • Joss Whedon, currently developing a television series based on Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. has revealed that the series characters will be all new and separate from the film characters.

    "It's new characters. It needs to be its own thing," said Whedon. "It needs to be adjacent [to the MCU] but you don't want to do a show where you're constantly going, 'Iron Man just left, but he was totally here a minute ago.' You want them to do their own thing."

  • Parks and Recreation could not have found a better guy to play the father of Adam Scott's character. Jonathan Banks -- who plays Mike Ehrmentraut on Breaking Bad -- will fill that role, according to Hitfix. The "Parks and Rec" folks are stoked:

    "To me, at this exactly moment in time, he's everyone I know's favorite actor," says [Showrunner Michael] Schur. "After that arc, he's the actor about which we've spent the most time talking in the room over the last year. It's awesome. He's going to be here at 2 p.m. today and everyone's geeking out. A lot of the writers are coming up with reasons to be down on the set today."

  • I'd just like to say that I'm a little annoyed with a comment Kurt Sutter made to TV Guide about this season's new big bad, Damon Pope, played by Harold Perrineau:

    "I always envisioned this guy as being [the] kind of guy who has sort of risen above the street and has learned to carry himself in the community," creator Kurt Sutter tells "It's a different kind of bad guy."

    Yes. Totally different. Except for Stringer Bell. And Gus Fring. And even Mags Bennett. But other than that, yes, totally, "a different kind of bad guy."

    Nevertheless, the season premiere racked up 5.3 million viewers, making it the most watched episode in the history of FX. In fact, in the 18-49 demo, it was the top rated show in the hour, beating out even the network competition.

    You can read my recap here.

  • Meanwhile, Jason Biggs -- who struck out with his CBS sitcom -- will be co-starring in a new Netflix original series, "Orange is the New Black," from "Weeds" showrunner Jenji Kohan. It's about a college drug runner named Piper (Taylor Schilling) who is imprisoned, and not knowing anything about prison culture, immerses herself in it and "finds acceptance, tears, laughter and love amid an outspoken group of inmates." Biggs will play her fiance.

  • NBC and "The Today Show" has apologized to its affiliates for not observing a moment of silence on 9/11 and, instead, AIRING AN INTERVIEW WITH THE KARDASHIAN MOM.

  • Figgy and you other "America's Top Model" fans may be saddened to know that a former contestant on the show, Jael Strauss, is now a meth addict. Dr. Phil is trying to save her. Thank God!


  • Josh Schwartz and Stephane Savage -- who are behind the CW's "Gossip Girl" -- are developing a series hatched up by Brett Easton Ellis. "'Copeland Prep' is set at the premiere secondary school in the nation, which is so fiercely competitive it's turning its students into monsters -- literally -- and spreading the disturbing ramifications throughout the town."

    Sounds interesting. Catherine Hardwicke (Twlight) will exec produce.

  • Finally: FYI. Obama is beating Romney in the 7-11's 7 Election, wherein customers pick an Obama or Romney cup when purchasing coffee. He's up by 16 points, and the contest has proven to be quite accurate in the past.

    • But, really: How do you accidentally tweet a photo of yourself topless?

      You don't. No. You just fucking don't. Nobody is that big of a jackass, and the fact that people keep using that bullshit excuse pisses me off to no end.



      Also: Shout-out! also also: I REMEMBER HER. And holy shit, meth is a horrible drug.

    • Serpentlord

      I think that celebrities need to stop commenting on their leaked nude pics. At this point I'll only believe a celebrity's phone was hacked if they said they posted a nude pic on purpose.

    • Clancys_Daddy

      I don't see any reasons to apologize.

    • Quatermain

      There are sometimes when a pair of glasses will make a cute girl cuter, but this is not one of those times. She should have taken off those glasses before she took off her shirt. That said, it is a topless photo, so I'm not complaining too much.

    • Genevieve Burgess

      I assumed she meant to text the photo to the boyfriend and didn't check the thing at the top that shows who you're texting, since you can update your twitter feed via text. The idea that she was trying to send a direct message (that would be private) also seems decent, although I hope Ms.Pill is smart enough to not deliberately go anywhere NEAR twitter with topless pictures. But hey, good day for admirers of boobs and girls in big glasses either way.

    • alwaysanswerb

      Pajiba, ILU, but having this as the header image skirts the line a little too closely to NSFW for comfort

      (edited for my first try barely resembling english)

    • John W

      So is Aaron Sorkin standing somewhere saying: "I'm waiting for an apology internet."

    • Slash

      "Accidentally." Right. I don't really care, just saying. I doubt stuff like this is ever accidental. But since I don't use Twitter, I could be wrong.

    • Slash

      Heh ... well played.

    • "But, really: How do you accidentally tweet a photo of yourself topless?"

    • Bert_McGurt

      I'm a little late to the game on SOA (and I've not seen anything past season two, nor have I viewed episodes in order due to FX Canada's odd airing schedule), but didn't Sutter himself already have a villain like that with Zobell?

    • Mrs. Julien

      It's accidents like Ms. Pill's that reconfirm my decision to maintain selective Ludditism and avoid tweeting or complex phone manoeuvers involving "apps".

    • ,

      You are truly wise indeed.

      As am I.

    • zeke_the_pig

      Indeed. Though, in the age of Twitter, I have lost all faith in the idea of anything breast-related happening by 'accident'. I should point out however that this is by no means meant to be a comment on Ms Pill's character or motivations.

    • KatSings

      "But, really: How do you accidentally tweet a photo of yourself topless?"

      The same way you accidentally email your entire corporation that you cheated on your ex who is your news anchor...seriously, did Pill decide it was good to emulate Mack's terrible tech abilities?

    • I don't think the delete explanation is a cop out. She probably meant to send a DM to her boyfriend and then clicked the wrong button when she realized she wasn't in the DM menu.

    • DeistBrawler

      I guess a text message is out of the question?

    • Seriously, why the FUCK would you use twitter for that? I call total bullshit. She wanted it to be seen.

    • Maguita NYC

      I believe they are engaged to be married. And have been since Goon came out.

      I agree with you that this is an incident, and love how she admitted to it, and did not go the usual "hacker-broke-into-my-account" poor excuse.

      May I also add that she looks absolutely cute in her big glasses, and if that picture was "accidentally" intended for the general public, she would have worn make-up, tweaked her nipples, and posed a lot more suggestively? (see Kardashian, Lohan, Reid, and any other "starlet" hard-try in the past).

    • BobBalaban360

      Yeah, the "delete" copout really is weird in what is otherwise a very cool, calm, collected reply. Is it that bad to admit that you took a nudie pic of yourself on purpose for private use? I mean, Liz Lemon did it!

    • Forbiddendonut

      Unfortunately, Harold Perrineau's run on "Lost" pretty much ruined him for me. Whenver I see him, all I can hear is "WAAAAAALLLLLT!!".

    • pajiba

      I hear you, man, but I have to say: He is GOOD in SoA. A total motherfucking bad ass, and about as far away from WAAAALLLLT as you can imagine.

    • winged chorus

      i never watched Lost so i just remember him from Oz. I loved him in that crazy crazy show.
