Dear Gossips,

My project this weekend was House Of Cards on Netflix, now that award season is no longer hijacking our weekends. Marathoned 8 episodes and am trying to work in the next 5 before I leave for Toronto later this week. There has been a lot of discussion focused on Netflix’s broadcast model for the show -- releasing the entire first season at once as opposed to the traditional pacing, one episode at a time for several weeks.  Read Full Intro

Chin down, Charlie! Chin down! Charlie Hunnam is back in Toronto for Pacific Rim reshoots. It’s the movie where Idris Elba “cancels the apocalypse”. It’s also the test to see if Charlie Hunnam can be a movie star. Did you read Mark Harris’s article in GQ last week about the “The New And Improved Leading Man”? Click here Full Story

Will it look like this? Stuntman turned action director Jesse Johnson has put together a self-financed—well, they’re calling it a “fan film” but I think the more accurate description is sizzle reel—video of what he thinks a Wonder Woman movie should look like. He cast Danish singer Nina Bergman to play Wonder Woman and blink-or-you’ll-miss-him Peter Stormare as a Nazi (also that dude from Sons of Anarchy), and the result is proof of both what works about Wonder Woman and what doesn’t. Full Story

Thank you for your emails requesting coverage of the Canadian Screen Awards. They happened in Toronto last night and etalk will be all over it tonight -- 7pm on CTV. The reason I haven’t posted about the event until now is because I’ve been waiting for more photos to become available. Unfortunately, the best images from the show are priced way out of my range which. Full Story

Girls Season 2 Episode 8 recap I am a terrible person. I know this, because when Hannah, early in the episode, started exhibiting OCD symptoms, I thought “Oh, right, she’s pretending to have OCD for an essay in her book”. It made perfect sense to me. It seemed like exactly the type of wistful, if-only-I-had-this-writerly-thing sort of hope that book-character Hannah would want to have, and then would try to acquire. Full Story

Another great example of the “Business of Hollywood” and all the manipulation and strong-arming that characterises the industry. Deadline’s Nikki Finke posted a delicious item yesterday about how Vanity Fair curiously pulled down an article about Jessica Chastain during the Academy’s Oscar voting period. Full Story

Bradley Cooper took his new bike out this weekend. And showed us what his hair looks like when it’s not gelled back: A bob! He has a bob! Like Keanu Reeves’s Ted Logan, only with some natural curl. Apparently it’s for a movie. Well, I hope so. In other Coop news, now that it’s a week after Oscar, it turns out he never wanted to win one in the first place. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio spent the weekend in Japan promoting Django Unchained. He looks...really good. As I mentioned last week in my post about his arrival there -- click here for a refresher -- Morley and I saw him at the Weinstein pre-Oscar party last Saturday night and he appeared a lot less bloated and gross than he has in a long time. Full Story

Here’s what I wrote in the intro to the site last Thursday: “...curiously enough, the prom king hasn’t been seen with his kids since Sunday. Coincidence or conspiracy? Maybe he’ll emerge on the weekend out of obligation, just so it won’t seem so obvious. Full Story

It appears Justin Bieber been taking lessons at Ben Affleck's School of Celebrity Perspective. JB turned 19 on Friday. Apparently there was a themed party planned for him at a London club. According to E! News, his entourage was turned away because club management believed he had underage friends who were trying to get in, including Jaden Smith. Full Story
