Christina Hendricks Does The Hunger Games, Internet Catches Fire
Yes yes, we’ve whipped ourselves up into quite a lather over this Hunger Games business. Deal with it. The lovely Ms. Hendricks posed with bows and arrows for V Magazine’s sports issue. Yes, this is the same issue that has J. Lo. dressed as a boxer, massaging her cup. Click on that if you dare; click on this if you like Hendricks, black leather and crazy-looking bows. (Celebitchy)
Speaking of comely lasses, the well-endowed Ms. Olivia Wilde did a video for the upcoming British GQ comedy issue. I’m not sure what it has to do with comedy, but I will tell you that parts of me feel funny now. (Film Drunk)
Hey! Today’s the day you can pre-order one of those cool new Back To The Future hover boards … that don’t actually hover! Wow! Neat! I could accomplish the same effect by taking the wheels off my* skateboard! (Gizmodo)
I derive such pleasure from the “Scandals Of Classic Hollywood” series over on Hairpin. This entry about Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy is no exception. Did you know they engraved one of his Oscars to “Dick Tracy”? Oh yes. (The Hairpin)
I am similarly enamored with all the excerpts from the upcoming “Tales From Development Hell” book that are popping up on the Internet. This one explores the Indiana Jones film Frank Darabont wrote. You better believe there were no f*cking fridges. (FSR)
I know I deprive you all of LOADS of cute animal photos. So here are a great number of them. All at once. (Buzzfeed)
But don’t you think those animals would be a whole lot happier if they were being snuggled by Clint Eastwood? I know I would. (Clint Eastwood Snuggling A F*cking Armadillo)
As “The Office” continues to fall apart, Unreality explores which character deserves a spin-off. My vote is for B.J. Novak’s Ryan, who is the only one who consistently makes me laugh. (Unreality)
Guess who Obama’s favorite character from “The Wire” is. Guess. You can do it. Oh, indeed you can. (Uproxx)
Speaking of TV shows we talk about too much, here is the first look at Shirley MacLaine on the set of “Downton Abbey.” Her hat is magnificent but her haughty sneer is even better. (World Of Wonder)
I’m really jealous I didn’t think to do this list. Yesterday, in honor of Leap Day, Screen Junkies recounted their favorite “Quantum Leap” episodes. Oh boy. (Jealous
Listen, to be honest, I kind of knew the “Inspector Spacetime” Web series was in trouble when I found out it was neither the brainchild of “Community” creator Dan Harmon nor NBC. Sorry peeps, there’s such a thing as intellectual property rights. Nonetheless, I agree with Dustin — NBC shutting it down is kind of a d*ck move. (Warming Glow)
And, to monger your fear today we have this crazy Firefox add-on that allows you to see which sites are tracking your Internet movements. Thanks for the paranoia, replica! (Mozilla)
Watch this a cappella version of Adele’s “Rumor Has It” and then join me in feeling embarrassed that the most creative thing you’ve ever done with a cheese grater is, well, grate cheese.
Finally, I shamelessly stole this from Tracer Bullet. Here’s the pay-off from that photo of Tim Daly and Nathan Fillion in their superhero jimjams. Watch them do superheroic things on “The Daly Show.” Yes, Tim and his son Sam have something called “The Daly Show.” I miss “Wings” almost as much as I miss “Quantum Leap.”
*I don’t have a skateboard.
Joanna Robinson wants to thank tamatha for that Clint Eastwood photo. It made her day.
