One note Blake

It was supposed to be the Comic-Con panel for The Green Lantern. Instead Blake Lively tried to make it about her breasts. Hard-ons aside, I mean, really, is it necessary? There were people who I interviewed in line waiting for hours, I mean hours, in the heat, they’d come from far and wide, and if they wanted to see cleave, they could have stayed at home with their laptops and jerked off. Full Story

There’s Robert Pattinson’s unintentional comedy, and then there’s Pacey-Con San Diego 2010. The.Best. He’s the best. Joshua Jackson was at Comic-Con for Fringe.

Joshua Jackson is back in Vancouver resuming production on a new season of Fringe. Look at him on set yesterday. Look how cute. He doesn’t fuss, he doesn’t pull attitude, he doesn’t demand to have his ass kissed. Instead he is always jovial, always smiling, always in great spirits with the crew, with his peers. Full Story

These vampire conventions are everywhere. Just one season old, Vampire Diaries is popular enough to have a travelling convention.

Everyone is jizzing over Inception

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 6, 2010 08:06:00 July 6, 2010 08:06:00

Media screenings are happening this week. Everyone coming out of Inception is jerking off over Christopher Nolan’s latest brilliance. Like, everyone. And just in time too. Inception opens July 16 following a smartly paced, cleverly strategised marketing campaign that teased just enough and not too much and as such, should deliver both critically and commercially which is not to say that it’ll do Toy Story numbers, but well enough to be considered a hit and, having made its money, on to perhaps an awards season run. Full Story

On Canada Day

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 1, 2010 07:50:00 July 1, 2010 07:50:00

Seems fitting to open with a Canadian. Jason Priestley was photographed yesterday in Toluca Lake and from this distance, underneath those shades, he could still be Brandon Walsh. Looks good, right? Jason is returning to television soon having just booked a guest-starring role on the new series Scoundrels on ABC. Full Story

Chris Brown can eat their sh-t

In an auditorium full of world class entertainers, Chris Brown tried to usurp the occasion by trumping the rest. Well, he can eat their sh-t. You’ve already seen the amazingness of the Prince tribute, but Brown’s tears also took a back row seat to performances by Kanye West, Eminem, and Drake. Full Story
