The internet lost its collective sh*t a few months ago when Simon Pegg teased that he might have a role in Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man movie. And then Simon said something along the lines of “don’t lose your blob, I’m not up for the part.” Seriously, internet, gather your blobs, because it looks like they’re going in a decidedly less ginger direction. JGL or Paul Rudd? That’s like saying do I want a delicious chocolate bar or do I want a delicious chocolate bar wearing a vest? (Underscoopfire)
Speaking of delicious chocolate things, Dustin took some time to bring you 20 fun and obscure facts you might not know about Scrubs. The delicious chocolate thing is Turk, ah, in case that wasn’t clear. (WG)
I’m fairly certain Olivia Wilde could fit at least three of you up the legs of these pants. And, if she charged admission, I’m equally certain she could make more money doing that than her last five movies combined. (GFY)
And while we’re on the subject of sassy pantsuits, I’m recapping The Good Wife for Vulture this year. Please do go read if you a) enjoy the show and b) STILL HARBOR HATE FOR MELISSA GEORGE FROM HER ALIAS DAYS. Ahem. (Vulture)
Natalie Portman claims that though she grew up in an environment of snobbery, she’s come to reject all those things. That, ah, that doesn’t jive at all with my perception of her…(Celebitchy)
…then again, what do I know.
Rand Paul’s anti-Muslim rant may be upsetting, but I’m still dying to know how he gets his hate-filled curls so irresistibly crunchy. (TDB)
My arch-nemisis, Bret Easton Ellis got quashed by none other than Norm Macdonald on Twitter. I don’t know which is weirder, Ellis deciding that the delightful Alice Munro is worth of attacking or the Twitternaisance Macdonald is enjoying. (Uproxx)
Some neighbors called the cops on these delightful people because their Halloween decorations were going to “upset the children.” I. Oh. People. Get a grip. (Gawker)
Speaking of the horror (the horror), there are currently five Wizard Of Oz TV shows in development. FIVE. I mean, the four shows Marvel has in development look tame by comparison. (The Playlist)
Speaking of Marvel, that sassy little kid who held his own against RDJ in Iron Man 3 is going to be the lead in the new (AND WHOLLY UNNECESSARY) Jurassic Park movie. Possibly more relevant to your interests? Jake Johnson is also in talks to star. Good luck out Charlie Day-ing Charlie Day in Pacific Rim, Jake. (Deadline)
And while we’re on the subject of It’s Always Sunny, please enjoy these adorable Japanese kindergartners performing a song from the show. Some young American is having fun with his “I’m going to go live abroad and teach English in Japan for a year” plan. (Videogum)
I loved the hell out of these high-concept portraits of classic comedians. Oh, Mel Brooks, you may get old but your Hitler jokes never will. (Flavorwire)
Finally, Tom Hiddleston did a little dance and, by the sound of it, the entire audience feverishly tore themselves to shreds.
