The fantastic Lindsay Bahr wrote about her adorable experience as an extra on “Dawson’s Creek.” James Van Der Beek totally made fun of her shoes. (Hairpin)
It’s pilot season, which means that lots of familiar actors are landing potential TV gigs. Here’s 7 notable actors who have landed gigs, ranked in order of hotness. (WarmingGlow)
I love Matthew Perry, but with the exception of his stellar role on “The West Wing,” he hasn’t really found a suitable post “Friends” role. Now, perhaps he has: He’ll be in a multi-episode arc on “The Good Wife.” How great would it be if he also became Alicia’s long-term love interest? (THR)
TK was not a fan of Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, not even a little bit. And if there’s anyone that might like that movie, it’s TK. However, the film does have a few insane scenes, but thankfully, you can find them ALL right here. No need to waste your money on the film. (Gamma Squad)
Speaking of Ghost Rider, here’s Nic Cage’s reaction after reading any script.
How do you you solve what’s ailing “The Walking Dead”? Bring in Omar Little. No, not Michael K. Williams. Literally, Omar Little (and five other characters from deceased TV shows that could enliven the AMC Series). (Unreality)
It’s bad enough that the Muppets will be unable to perform their Oscar nominated songs at this year’s telecast (though they will present), but now comes word that someone nearly as endearing won’t be attending, either. (Screenjunkies)
I read Jordan Hoffman’s headline, “The Best Satanic Movies You Haven’t Seen” and thought, “Fuck you. I’m a movie critic. I’m sure I’ve seen them.” Wrong. I’ve seen only two. (Slashfilm)
Over on Kotaku, Mike Fahey talks about how good kids have it today with video games because back in his day, all he had was the likes of Duck Hunt. We’ll let me tell you, Mr. Fahey. You don’t know how good you had it with your fancy plastic guns. Try playing video-game baseball on an Atari 2600 with crappy joysticks that broke if you swung too hard. (Kotaku)
“Jurassic Parks and Rec” demonstrates that tumblr mash-ups haven’t worn out their welcome just yet (Jeff Goldblum plus Jean-Ralphio? Absolutely). (Uproxx)
I don’t love the headline for this, “Tiffani Amber Thiessen is Hot Again” because it suggests that she wasn’t hot at some point, that point being post-pregnancy, which totally doesn’t count, which is to say, the headline should read: “Tiffani Amber Thiessen Is, As She’s Always Been, Totally Hot.” (Evil Beet)
In a recent interview, Jon Hamm spilled some details about the forthcoming season of “Mad Men” and how his character and that of Christina Hendricks will begin to explore their relationship further. (WG)
TK passed along this fascinating video in which the Bechdel test is applied to the current crop of Oscar nominees to see how relevant women are to the plots of those films.
