Who Fills Out A Clingy Action Suit Better Than Anne Hathaway? Idris Elba That's Who.
Happy Friday y’all. I want to give a quick shout out to all of you who send me links via Twitter, email, Facebook and carrier pigeon. You are the best. But the MVP award has to go to Bierce Ambrose based on volume alone. Here’s a classic Ambrosian link that maps the recent “zombie” (aka psychotic, bath salt-induced flesh eating) incidents in the U.S. Let’s all steer clear of Florida, shall we? (Google Maps)
Speaking of the zombocalypse, here’s the first look at The Governor character from the next season of “The Walking Dead.” I do love me some Morrissey (both the band and the actor). There’s also a snap of the new “Doctor Who” companion who still just looks like a very pretty girl. Yawnsofar. (The Mary Sue)
The Governor makes another appearance in this link but, more importantly, we get the first photo of Idris Elba from Guilermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. If y’all are disappointed by the amount of Spacesuit Elba in Prometheus, then this film is for you. (MovieHole)
But while we’re on the subject of suiting up, you Fitzgerald purists will be pleased to know that Saville Row has been working with Baz on The Great Gatsby to make sure the 20s fashion is up to snuff. (Gothamist)
Speaking of the Fitzgeralds, it has come to my attention that some of you didn’t know Loki (aka Tom Hiddleston) played F. Scott in Midnight In Paris. Well now you know. Go see the movie. Again if you must.
And Mrs. Zelda Fitgerald makes an appearance on this great list of famous flapper glamor shots. They’re showing ankles and KNEES. Scandalous. (Mental Floss)
Mrs. Doubtfire recut as a horror movie? Makes a drive-by fruiting sound much more ominous, no? Warning…the video starts automatically on this page. (Evil Beet)
A music writer in Boise threw all journalistic impartiality out the window with this delightfully scathing Nickelback write up. (Laughing Squid)
And speaking of scathing, watch a man’s entire life unravel via Twitter after he tries to hit on his airplane seat mate. He had it coming…I think… (Oh No, Polio)
Similarly, this young man has made a bit of a fool of himself in pursuit of a lady. He knows Convention Booth Babes are paid to be nice to dorks…yes? (Craiglist)
Did you know this? I did not know this. (via Keg Works)
Of all the Hollywood scandals, it’s the Scientology ones that always get me. I cannot wait for the inevitable collapse of the major Power Players and for all the secrets to come tumbling, pouring, gushing forth. Nicole Kidman (ex-wife of Power Player Tom Cruise) recently invited Kelly Preston (beleaguered wife of Power Player John Travolta) to come seek refuge on her ranch. DEPROGRAMMING OR TOTALLY INNOCUOUS? You decide. (Celebitchy)
Have you seen this woman’s photography? It’s absolutely stunning. And that’s not the cronyism talking. (Etsy)
Dustin has listed the ten best episodes of the 2011-2012 season and he’s absolutely dead on. (WG)
Coulrophobes beware, Cary Fukunaga will be directing a two-part remake of Stephen King’s “It.” Sure, yes, good luck out-creeping Tim Curry. (THR)
And, finally, I’m contractually obliged to post this “Daily Show” interview with Michael Fassbender. Despite Dan’s tepid Prometheus review, I’ll be the first in line to see the Fassbot in action tonight.
Joanna Robinson eagerly awaits the day they pay Booth Bros to be nice to dorks like her.
