You Think A Tatted-Out Tom Cruise Is The Most Disturbing Magazine Cover You'll See Today? Think Again.
First things first, let’s address the heavily mascara’d elephant in the room. That would be Mr. Tom Cruise in all his preposterous Rock Of Ages glory. Trust me, until you see the Freudian tattoo that is pointing towards his nether region, you ain’t seen nothing yet. (Evil Beet)
The more disturbing magazine cover I was referring to? That would be this gem from “Time” magazine. (Jealous of that “Newsweek” cover, I see.) Anyway, I’m curious as to your thoughts. Me? All I can think of is that kid, 15 years from now, parodying this cover for “Playboy.” (Time)
Oh! A “Playboy” segue! I’ve never had one of those! Apparently Sean Bean (notorious defender of “Playboy” playmates) was arrested for harassing his ex-wife. I’M SORRY, I don’t create theses scandals, I just report them. (Celebitchy)
British dreamboat Tom Hiddleston (that’s Loki, if you’re nasty) was asked to perform an impromptu Shakespearean monologue and he rose to the occasion. Oh, once more into my breeches, dear friend. (Vulture)
And since I just made a dumb Shakespeare joke, I might as well go full lit. nerd with these amazing pieces of jewelry inspired by English literature. h/t ShinyKate and Julie (Etsy)
Watch as “Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev performs some yoga on Conan O’Brien. No, not the show. On the man himself. His reaction was appropriately ginger snappy. (Uproxx)
Unreality has a list of five movies that could break the box office record set by The Avengers. I had no idea a Justice League movie was even a glimmer in DC’s eye. (Unreality)
Speaking of geekily beloved film franchises, Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright have formally announced plans for their follow-up to Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. They’re calling the three films their “The Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy” and a synopsis for the third, World’s End is here. (MovieLine)
Pajiban fav “Cougar Town” has been renewed for two more seasons…but it’s moving to TBS. I DON’T CARE! BRING ME WINE! JUBILANT NOISES! To celebrate, Dustin has collected Busy Phillip’s Best Cougar Town GIFs. (WarmingGlow)
Speaking of Pajiban favorites, apparently Walton Goggins is getting a much expanded role in Tarantino’s Django Unchained. Kurt Russell is leaving the project so Goggins and his magnificent hair will be absorbing the role. For those of you who have never seen “Justified” or “The Shield” just, trust me, this is amazing news. (AICN)
Hello Giggles has a list of 80s Movie Couples That Wouldn’t Work In Real Life. Uh, duh, that’s because all the guys you used to love are total d-bags. Doy. (HG)
Speaking of couples working out, check out this amazing infographic detailing gay rights, state by state, in the U.S. Way to go Northeast! Except for you, Pennsylvania. Can someone get Biden on that? (The Guardian)
If you didn’t see it last year, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller (you know, Sherlock and Sherlock) will be returning to your local movie theater in the National Theater production of “Frankenstein.” The actors swapped roles each night and last year I saw Miller as The Monster, so I may try to catch the other cast this year. (CinemaBlend)
Finally, I hope you find this Bond Girl breakdown as enjoyable as I did. Me? I was just trying to figure out which lovely lady was saddled with the worst name. You may have other comparisons in mind. (CableTV)
Finally, it’s almost Friday, so here are some dudes in Predator gear dancing. You’re welcome.
