Before tomorrow’s week of posts kicks off, I’d like to just clear out a few mentions from late last week up and until now so we can start the summer with something of a clean slate.
First up, Victoria’s Secret has put out a video congratulating the fake, plastic doll-like person above for being cast as Megan Fox’s replacement in Transformers 3. You think the cross-promotion clinched the deal? (Facebook)
There’s currently a huge campaign over on Twitter to get “Community’s” Donald Glover considered for the lead in the Spider-Man reboot. If you’re one of the Twitterati, I encourage you to join. This is the kind of guy we need in a superhero costume. (Twitter)
After it was announced yesterday that Guillermo del Toro had bailed on The Hobbit, some had speculated that Peter Jackson would take over or, perhaps, had even forced out del Toro because Jackson really needs a hit. Jackson, for his part, says that he’d only do it as a last resort. Sounds like he’s paving the way to me. (Slashfilm)
Good news! If they NBA Finals do not go to a Game 7, ABC plans to air two previously unaired episodes of “Better off Ted.” So, we just need the Celtics to wrap that up in 6. (Hitflix)
Reese Witherspoon has apparently been asked to play “L. Ron Hubbard’s younger, pregant wife” in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Scientology film, which would also star Phillip Seymour Hoffman as The Master and Jeremy Renner an alcoholic drifter. (The Playlist)
Bruce Willis in in talks to join Anton Fuqua’s The Tomb, a prison escape drama in which Willis’ character would use MacGyver like skills to escape. (Deadline)
And for the hell of it (via FilmDrunk), I’ll leave you tonight with Orson Welles. Drunk. And filming a commercial.
