Earlier today, a fake press release purported to be from Warner Brothers announced that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had been cast as Roman Sionis and Marion Cottillard would be playing Talia al Ghul. A few of the movie blogs, in their haste to get the news up FIRST! ran with the story without checking their sources (that is to say, waiting to see if Deadline would run with it). There was much hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing, questions of ethics broached, apologies doled out, and everyone lived happily ever after secure in the knowledge that, at the very least, Joseph Gordon-Levitt would still be in the movie. Hooray!
I was going to come up with a clever way to poke fun at the trade news SCANDAL in our typical tongue-in-cheek fashion, but then I got distracted by Yvonne Strahovski. And here we are: The triumphant return of “Chuck” recaps by screengrab. Because there is nothing shameless or unethical about posting images of attractive women in various stages of undress.
In this week’s “Chuck,” the show continued to meticulously track every single event leading up to a wedding. Here, Chuck decided to get Sarah’s old spy friends together to throw her a bachelorette party. Here are Sexy, Dopey, and Sleepy doing their best shampoo commercial looks.
The party apparently went off with much fanfare because, the next morning, Sarah woke up in the fetal position next to Chuck. But look! Special guest star Lou Diamond Phillips. He plays the 80s relic posing as a bad guy.
Meanwhile, Sleepy woke up with Morgan, and look! Star Wars sheets. They really take the geek fantasy to unrealistic levels, don’t they?
Anyway, Sarah’s spy friends get mixed up with a mission, and here they are taken hostage. Even still, they maintain perfect posture.
Sarah breaks free, and here she delivers one hell of an awkward karate kick. It looks like she’s trying to pee on a tree in the woods.
Soon, the foursome of women discover that there is a mole among them. Here, Sarah ends up fighting with Sexy, mistakenly believing that she’s the mole. And you’d think that two attractive women duking it out would be unbelievably sexy. Not when its reduced to screen grabs! It looks like they are auditioning for Russell Crowe’s band, 30 Odd Foots of Grunt.
Alas, they discover that Dopey is the mole, take her down, and give us their best poor man’s “Charlie Angels” pose.
Sarah has a wonderful engagement party. Morgan’s girlfriend takes him back. Lou Diamond Phillips gets a paycheck, and everyone lives happily ever after.
One question remains, however. Is Joseph Gordon-Levitt sexier with or without glasses?
See what I did there?
