Casting for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic was messy even before Sony vomited bitchiness all over it. Now that it’s been re-homed at Universal, things are hopefully less dramatic around the production office, but the casting merry-go-round continues to turn. The female lead has yet to be cast since the Sony Hack exposed that Natalie Portman was less “in talks” and more “lobbying for” the part. Full Story

The Affair Season 1 Episode 10 finale recap Noah’s in the rubber room with Elvin from The Cosby Show. How’s your weekend? I couldn’t breathe most of the time that I was watching this finale because where are we going? Where in time are we? Who are these breathtakingly honest people who still manage not to be too earnest, except when they’re being cringe-inducingly naked about their feelings? There were enough gasps in this hour to make me hang on with bated breath, and there were certain scenes that really sold it. Full Story

Rachel McAdams was photographed at LAX on Friday presumably heading out for the holidays after spending several weeks in LA working on True Detective Season 2. Where? Home, I would imagine. Toronto. Always home when she can. Because Hollywood is a place for work – not a residence. Word is she’s single now. Full Story

Well, they cleared the first hurdle. When you name your first daughter Lincoln, you are morally obligated not to call the second one Rebecca, or even Kira. You have to match tone, and I think they did. Both all Americana, nostalgia and a good dose of southernness, which is amusing given that Shepherd and Bell are both from Michigan, so they’re virtually Canadian. Full Story

Am I allowed to say now that the final episode of Serial was… frustrating? Frustrating is a safe word, right? It’s been frustrating for a few weeks now. I finally gave in and started googling about 10 days ago because I just, you know, like, I dunno, (in Sarah speak), certain questions weren’t being asked. I felt deflated to start the day. And then…by the end of the night…
If we’re talking final episodes, Colbert’s was perfect.
And it’s not because he had so many celebrity guests (Cookie Monster was the best, obviously). You know what I appreciate about Stephen Colbert? Or at the least the version of Colbert that was presented on The Colbert Report, who’s now achieved immortality alongside Santa, Unicorn Lincoln, and Alex Trebek (HAHAHAHA)?
It’s that he was ALWAYS Colbert.
There was no crying. There’s no crying in baseball, and there’s no f-cking crying in satire!
There is, however, a new, exciting question: Who are you now Stephen Colbert? See you in September.
Have a great weekend!

Like I said earlier in the JLO post, the point of the PEOPLE Magazine Awards is to look at the clothing. And even though JLO trotted it all out last night, from the deep cleave to the crotch draw, two celebrities took the red carpet. With JLO there’s always a hint of the tacky anyway, non? First Nicole Richie in a black jumpsuit with sheer sleeves and leaves delicately weaved on the shoulders. Full Story
