House of Lies Season 1 Episode 10 Can you predict who's going to wind up where, long before they get there? There are lots of jokes about stripper names, and though it's one of those things that's a cliche because it's true, I don't think so many careers are as cut and dried. At least, not on the surface.

Where his abilities are much more appreciated than they are in English speaking parts of the world. Here’s Keanu being honoured at the FilmAID Power Of Film Gala in Hong Kong last night. In Hong Kong it doesn’t matter that he can’t sneeze convincingly. It matters more that he can play the martial arts. Full Story
This is Lucy Liu on the New York set of Elementary yesterday, a new Sherlock Holmes pilot for CBS. Liu is “Joan Watson”, the sober companion to Jonny Lee Miller’s Holmes who’s just come out of rehab. Needless to say, the purists are punching themselves in the face out of frustration. Look, I’m ok with Watson being a girl, and an Asian one too. Full Story
Smash Season 1 Episode 7 I need help. All of you are smart, and have big brains. Can you help me to figure this out? Nobody who writes music professionally is stupid.

I was in LA again this weekend for a junket. On Saturday I waited for the elevator at lobby level with Sean Bean looking handsome in a black suit. Ned Stark is thicker around the middle than I expected but that sex appeal, you can’t ignore it. Still, I have to say I was more obnoxious nerd than horny fan on this occasion and had to struggle with myself not to hiss “When you play the game of thrones you win, or you die” in his face. But when I posted about him on Twitter, over 90% of respondents referenced Lord Of The Rings. Oh yeah. He was in that.
As previously mentioned, I was just never into LOTR. As such, it’s never my first association.
Game Of Thrones on the other hand...

8 months after the birth of Bingham, Kate Hudson is on the beach in Mexico looking like she never had a baby, or two. That is a cuuuute bikini, non? And her breast enhancement was really rather modest. Like, barely noticeable, and only, only, only to piece of sh-t gossip whores who study these things for a living, and even then only when you have the before pictures shoved right up in your face.

Oh look. Daniel Radcliffe is back in spectacles wearing a scarf. Not THOSE spectacles, not THAT scarf...Here he is in New York on the set of Kill Your Darlings in costume with his hair curled as Allen Ginsberg. James Franco, of course, was the last to play Ginsberg in Howl. I loved him in that film. He was so. Full Story
