The casual viewer’s guide to zombies on TV

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 2, 2010 07:39:00 November 2, 2010 07:39:00

Written by Sarah Sunday night was the premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead, a television-adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s comic book series of the same name. The comics are a very popular monthly serial so an adaptation of some sort seemed inevitable, especially as zombies have become more mainstream in the last few years. Full Story

How he lost it

What’s “it”? What else? He gave it to a more experienced older woman, if you can call her that, also living the public life and with it all its attendant miseries. Which could explain why she chose to, um, initiate him the way she did. Because his first time was certainly not conventional, at least not when I was growing up, but then again, maybe that’s what they do at summer camp now: losing your virginity through the backdoor. Full Story

Renaissance Woman of the Year

Last night at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year event in London, my obsession Sam Taylor-Wood received the Renaissance Woman of the Year Award, accompanied by my other obsession, her fiancé, Aaron Johnson. As you know, their relationship – she’s 43 and he’s 20 and they’ve been together almost 2 years and are now parents to a daughter, 4 months – has been the source of much debate. Full Story

This is for Emily G in Halifax who is missing her Nan. Shawna B requested for you some Jim Sturgess but specifically as Dexter and it appears I didn’t get ‘round to posting these shots of Jim back when they were shooting One Day in Paris: Dexter in his jammies meeting up with his ma, played by the indomitable Patricia Clarkson, brilliantly cast. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m with the girl who’s willing to “go ugly” for Halloween. Few of them are. And certainly not, say, someone like Kate Beckinsale. She actually POSED for the paps on the sidewalk while out trick or treating with her kid.  Read Full Intro

Hollywood’s Most Powerful on a ledge

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 1, 2010 14:31:00 November 1, 2010 14:31:00

A couple of weeks ago, Entertainment Weekly published their list of Hollywood’s Most Powerful. The rankings were based largely on box office averages. Sam Worthington took the top spot. Avatar, Clash of the Titans, Terminator – you cannot argue with those numbers. If you were a contrarian you’d probably say that’s it’s nothing to do with HIM, but more to do with those projects, they were no-brainers. Full Story

Exclusive Hot tip just in! Just learned that Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal were at Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur this weekend. They were seen together over breakfast and also by the pool. Swifty was wearing a beret. There was some handholding and their arms were around each other and she was touching his hair and getting lost in his cute ass amazing face. Full Story

Jesse in Rome

I've been meaning to post photos of him for a while and then something always came up. Then on Friday night Zombieland was showing on HBO. Again I was reminded how much I like him. I liked him a lot in Adventureland. And very much for his brilliant performance in The Social Network. And the angles of his face. Full Story

FNL: The Final Season – Part the First

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 1, 2010 12:01:00 November 1, 2010 12:01:00

Written by Duana Season 5, Episode 1 Spoilers abound below. If you are waiting for the spring broadcast, be warned. It shouldn’t be any surprise to anyone who reads here often to learn that Friday Night Lights is precious. To me, so much so that I went to Austin to stalk the set last year (I don’t know what’s still standing, but if you want the chills this show provides over and over again, all it takes is going to stand in Herrmann field, where the Panthers play…), and such that the decision to recap this final season of the show was, sing it with me, bittersweet. Full Story

Carey doesn’t look back

I loved her with Shia, but I think I might love her even more for how she’s handling their breakup. It’s the opposite of Porny Jessica Simpson. It’s dignified and stoic and sassy with some f-ck you strategically sprinkled in just to make sure we know she can handle this sh-t, yeah she can. Full Story
