Ben Affleck directed Jon Hamm in The Town, released in 2010. Back then I didn’t know that… Hamm had it in him the way Affleck had it in him. Oh but he does. Can you imagine that wingman situation? Middle-aged women would moist themselves as hard as they do at a Twilight convention. Sure, I coulda used a different word there, but “moist” is so much more evocative, non? Hamm hosted the ESPY Awards last night. Full Story

Last week I got sucked into FX’s new show, The Bridge, and a bunch of you emailed to tell me that the Danish original is so much better than the US remake. That may well be, but I’m holding off on watching the original. The Bridge ought to stand on its own and I’d rather judge it on those merits than be comparing it to the original. Full Story

Selena Gomez was at the ESPY Awards last night. She wore red Dolce & Gabbana. You know what I’m starting to notice about Selena Gomez? I feel like every dress she puts on, no matter how different it might be, always looks the same, has the same effect. Why is this? I think I prefer her in casual clothes. Full Story

Is it weird that I am comforted by strangers I’ve never met on Twitter? Does it make a difference if they’re famous strangers? Because they are all saying the same thing this morning.   “Tatiana Maslany was robbed.” It was always the longest of long shots, of course – a Canadian show on BBC America, (largely) unknown actress, and a Sci-Fi premise. Full Story

Crowdfunding for movies with established stars attached – it’s all a bit confusing isn’t it? Like, why would I give money to James Franco? (Read Sarah’s thoughts on it here). Not that I’m telling anyone how to spend their money, but $40 for a T-shirt from a movie that hasn’t even been made? Non-profit and charity fundraisers must be weeping. Full Story

He’s in Chicago shooting Jupiter Ascending. And he’s blonde, the kind of blonde that looks tinted green in some light. You dig it? I … kinda do. That may be because I like him so much (by celebrity standards) or it could be because, ultimately, I’m one of those losers who misses the tackiness of the late 90s and early 2000s. Full Story

The Queen was visited with her people in Lake Windermere in Cumbria today in a bright green outfit. While she was on her walkabout, she was asked by a precocious young lady about Kate’s baby, whether or not she preferred a boy or a girl. The Queen answered right away. Like, she didn’t miss a beat. Full Story

It’s July, which means it’s time once again for the annual Gathering of the Geeks down in San Diego, otherwise known as Comic-Con.
