And he can! He can! James McAvoy was on Jonathan Ross this weekend. So was Barry Manilow. And it turns out McAvoy is a Fanilow. He told Ross that he used to dress up in his sisters “wee white trousers” as a kid to sing “the love story of Tony and Lola”. McAvoy is all about Copacabana. Full Story

The last time a group of comely young singers came together for a musical movie sequel about a choir; it was Sister Act 2 - a movie which, no joke, has informed my friendships, my wedding, my career. And which, it goes without saying, far surpassed the kick-ass-in-its-own-right original. There is nothing wrong with a surprise sequel to a choir movie. Full Story

There’s something about good actors also being good mimics. There’s some connection between being good at one and also being good at the other. It makes a certain kind of sense, especially given accent work and how being able to mimic would make mastering an accent easier. So when you tell me that Benedict Cumberbatch is good at impressions, it’s like—well of course he is, he’s a super good actor. Full Story

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know how I feel about Daniel Radcliffe. I’ve been interviewing him for almost 10 years. And while he might disagree, in my mind it’s practically a relationship. You’d be crazy not to want a relationship with him. Goddamn he’s so nice. Full Story

Brad Pitt really wants you to see Fury. The small details are what get me initially. Like how they Scotch tape the microphones on this show. It’s a slow build. The first two minutes aren’t all that exciting. But then. Zach Galifianakis goes for it. I mean, sure, it’s not hard to go for it when both of you are in on it. Full Story

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were at the ELLE Women in Hollywood event last night. And that reminds me… We’re inside 3 months until the Golden Globe Awards. Tina and Amy are returning as hosts.

Duana and I are working old school today at the library, sitting at a table across from each other by a window, fascinated by the regulars who hang out here. People still come to the library to use the computer – I’m a f-cking asshole for being surprised by this. The librarian overdraws her lip liner and wears her skirt barely past the ass. Full Story

Mimi, our Elusive (but omnipresent) Chanteuse, kicked off her tour in Tokyo the other night. Mimi’s been in the news a lot lately because she and Nick Cannon have separated. And she and Jermaine Dupri broke up too. And no one who isn’t a lamb cared about her new album. So it was time for a good headline. Full Story
