The Teen Choice Awards were last night. I actually didn’t know until I texted Duana about her boy Rory McIlroy who’d just birdied 17 at the PGA and was going into 18 with a two shot lead over Phil Mickelson. ANYONE but Phil Mickelson. Duana was all like, but the Jays just played a 19 inning game! I’m exhausted. Full Story

Someone emailed me this morning asking for some Friday “man candy” in the form of Idris Elba. Not going to lie and I don’t mean to hurt feelings…but I hate this expression. Then these new shots showed up on the agency database and I thought, well, I guess I’m the asshole because using the word “man candy” evidently conjured a bare chested Idris Elba on set in London. Full Story

When you break up with someone and they start to look worse and worse, does it make you feel better? Kind human beings are not supposed to think like this. Nice people with hearts and good values don’t have these thoughts. I think we’ve established though that humanity is f-cked. At least that’s where I live. Full Story

It’s been trailer porn for the last few weeks, non? They’re all rolling out previews for fall releases and award season contenders. This year looks to be a strong one for Actors. When isn’t it a strong year for Actors? Right now, it’s looking like Michael Keaton for Birdman is the only legitimate lock. Full Story

A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that Joaquin Phoenix was supposedly in negotiations to play Dr Strange for Marvel. No news since then. He’s been working on that new Woody Allen film in Newport with Emma Stone. They were all seen on set yesterday. Maybe they’re haggling over terms? The term most people haggle over is money. Full Story

May 6, 2016 loomed large, the date on which Marvel and DC would pit their cinematic universes against each other in a billion-dollar death spiral, but in the end, there could be only one. As I predicted months ago, Warner Brothers/DC flinched and Superhero Face Punch has been pushed back to spring—to March 25, 2016 to be exact—taking it out of direct competition with Captain America 3. Full Story

Unless he pulls a Mel Gibson in the next week, Matthew McConaughey is going to win the Emmy for True Detective on August 25. That means he’ll hold the Oscar and the Emmy in the same year. And it brings him half way to EGOT. Could he? A Time To Kill was on last night. Jacek and I stayed up late to watch it because he’d never seen it, never heard McConaughey deliver the closing summation and that line, that disturbingly powerful line: “Now imagine she’s white”. Full Story

I have a Dan Stevens Situation that is under imminent threat of becoming a full-blown Dan Stevens Problem. He was cute in a kind of teddy bear way when he broke out on Downton Abbey, but now he looks like this... … and well, it’s getting to be a thing. Not helping my Dan Stevens Situation is the new trailer for The Guest a thrillerish, horrorish movie that premiered at Sundance to strong reviews. Full Story

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Fassbender were in New York last night at the premiere of Frank. If you’re looking forward it because Fassbender makes you hard, heads up that he has a bag over his head the entire film. The star of Frank is Domhnall Gleason. One day I’m going to stop calling him Bill Weasley, I promise. Full Story
