Written by Duana At long last, a chance for me to shut up a little. For those who are new to the GG recaps, they involve me talking about these people in Twitspeak. Which is what they would want. GG has been off the air for approximately a year. Full Story

Is this your Effie?

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 19, 2011 08:46:40 April 19, 2011 08:46:40

THR is reporting that Elizabeth Banks is in talks to play Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games. Must discuss this during the liveblog. I can see what they’re going for in the sense that Effie is the ultimate packager from the Capitol. In that spirit, Effie is totally Hollywood. Full Story

What you can’t unsee

Before you open up these photos, remember you won’t be able to unsee them. So… proceed carefully. I mean, there’s Jennifer Garner and those goddamn pants, and then there’s Katherine Heigl who spent a lot of time putting this together, on her way to a meeting yesterday, and …well… Here’s what came out. Full Story

Written by Sarah As you know, I love Ryan Gosling. And my favorite Ryan Gosling film is Lars and the Real Girl, which was directed by Craig Gillespie (he also did the upcoming Fright Night remake with Colin Farrell). Full Story

Who’s the idiot keeping her waiting?

Oh I would not want to be the ass picking up Sofia Vergara yesterday in New York. Judging from her face, he’s late. And she looks annoyed. And so f-cking sexy. Look at that little pout. I want her. Sofia is, presumably, in NYC to do a little more work on New Year’s Eve. Before that she’ll be in theatres, or at least her voice will be, this summer in The Smurfs. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The last time Nicolas Cage made headlines for being drunk and disorderly in public, he was in Romania.

“I’ll die in the name of honour!”


Remember that? Click here for a refresher. Unfortunately, there is no audio from the camera footage of his New Orleans arrest this weekend. Otherwise, I’m sure we would have been treated to another classic. As you may have heard, Cage taunted the cops into arresting him (“Why don’t you just arrest me?”) and I imagine the follow-up line to that was probably something in the spirit of:

“But if they can’t defuse that bomb, that’s on the NOPD, brother. That’s on you. You are a gambling with our future!”

Real life is a movie too, didn’t you know?

Duana, my tv coach, always says you have to watch at least 2 episodes to get the flavour of a new show. So give it one more week for Game of Thrones. Or maybe I don’t have to tell you that, maybe you saw the premiere last night and are in for the ride already. I powered through the first 6 episodes on media screeners this weekend. SO GOOD. It’s worth your investment.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

All you have to do is tell me who went up and down on each other a few years ago, as both are curiously in the midst of pregnancy speculation at the same time. Easy, right? Also there’s another chance to win on Wednesday with one of my favourites from the gossip hall of fame. That one, however, won’t be so obvious. Study up!

Cory’s moves

Lainey Posted by Lainey at April 18, 2011 14:47:56 April 18, 2011 14:47:56

You know who isn’t young, famous, and mean? He’s young and famous, yes. But the mean part, it’s not Cory Monteith. Cory was at Coachella too (Memo to Cory – but you’re checking your iphone for Canucks updates every few minutes during games, right?) and working some moves on a pretty girl…who seems like a good match, at least in height. Full Story

Inside 3 months

Friday was exactly 3 months. Friday was also the day that the DVD for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 was released. And Harry Potter also covered the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. I am an Entertainment Weekly subscriber. Sometimes I worry that my magazines will get stolen depending on the cover stories. Full Story

Hunger Games casting update! A release was just sent out. They’ve announced the tributes from District 11. Which means Rue! Her name is Amandla Stenberg. And Thresh, also from 11, is Dayo Okeniyi. Both newcomers. There’s now actually a Facebook page for casting confirmations. Looks like they may be going in reverse chronological order of districts. Full Story

Young, famous, mean

Remember when Lea Michele meangirled Hailee Steinfeld who then went on to get nominated for almost every major award and Lea had to swallow back her own sh-t and be nice to her at the shows? Blind, deaf, and dumb Glee fans were all like – no way, Lea could never be a bitch, she’s so nice and grateful on Twitter! Guess what? They’re young, they’re famous, and they can be mean. Full Story
