He doesn't know it but that doesn't matter. We're tight, Idris and I.  So it was Saturday at Roy Thomson Hall for the gala premiere of Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Etalk broadcasts live into the theatre from the carpet during arrivals for half an hour. We all take turns through the two weeks. Full Story

Check out Tom Hiddleston at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night in London. He looks GREAT. And you know what? Since I have been actively avoiding Tom’s Twitter account, and therefore spared from his exclamation points, Tom’s been holding steady lately, even higher than Tom Hardy. Then I watched this interview. Full Story

Last week we saw a teaser. This week they’re giving us the first full length trailer for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, starring Idris Elba in the title role and Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela. Yesterday was also Nelson Mandela’s 95th birthday. As I’ve already mentioned, several times, Elba’s performance in this film is said to be nomination-worthy, in a year featuring several nomination-worthy performances from black actors including Michael B Jordan in Fruitvale, Forest Whittaker in The Butler, and Chiwetel Ejiofor in 12 Years A Slave. Full Story

Deadline posted an article earlier this week about the upcoming award season and the possibility that it might actually be more diverse this year than it has been, maybe, ever. Fruitvale opens this weekend after coming out strong from Sundance. Then there’s The Butler, and Twelve Years A Slave, and Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Full Story

Pacific Rim opens on Friday. My interviews with the cast are airing all week on etalk. I’ll tell you more about Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, and Ron Perlman tomorrow when I post the photos from the LA premiere which is happening tonight. Will Hunnam bring his girlfriend? Will she tell him to lower his chin? Here’s Hunnam at Good Morning America yesterday. Full Story

There will be more of this. Pacific Rim doesn’t open until next Friday. So we’ll get at least another major carpet. And some television interviews. My interviews with Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Guillermo del Toro, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day from the junket in San Francisco last weekend will air next week on etalk so I’ll save most of the details about being in a room with these two beasts for then (since many of you are still on holiday), but I will say, for now, that they’re waaaaaayyyyyy more sexy on the casual than they are on a carpet. Full Story

Are you thanking me? Because you’re welcome. For Idris Elba. I want you to look at this man. Look. At. This. Man. (And don’t think about his rap-singing.) This man was at Letterman yesterday promoting Luther Season 3. Do you watch Luther? I’m into Luther. Luther is my private, maybe a little pervy, OK a lot pervy, pleasure. Full Story

This is not fair, I know, but we’ll come to that in a minute... Are you tired of all the new trailers? A new trailer is dropping every day. It’s holiday bombardment and some of you have written to complain about the inundation. Me? I have no trailer fatigue. I LOVE movie trailers. Full Story

Newly married and pregnant Drew Barrymore, ankle boots over jeans, attended the premiere of Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World last night in LA where she hung out with Diablo Cody because, obviously. Have they worked together yet? It seems like that would be inevitable. As for Drew’s other best friend Cameron Diaz, she was also spotted yesterday in ankle boots and jeans, but in New York. Full Story
