(Sorry, Jacek, I had to) Homeland Season 3 Episode 5 recap Other than two very delicious uses of the F word this week, Homeland has now firmly constructed itself – this season, at least – as a show that might be smarter than you and is determined to keep you guessing. This is either immensely appealing or intensely annoying, depending on how you live. Full Story
Now that Jamie Dornan’s been confirmed as Charlie Hunnam’s replacement for Robert Pattinson in Fifty Shades Of Grey, the paps have a new target. Check out Jamie with his wife Amelia Warner in London this weekend. The look on his face is cracking me up. He’s like, already? Oh yes already. Full Story
The Germany premiere of Thor: The Dark World occurred over the weekend and—gasp—a rare wild Hemsworth appeared. We’ve been poking at Chris Hemsworth for his lackluster presence in his own franchise’s promotions, and after the London premiere I didn’t expect to see him again until the US premiere in another week, but lo, there he is in Berlin.

She’s ignorant, obviously. But she also has no friends. If she had friends, real friends, they would have shut this down. But then again, does anyone have real friends in Hollywood? Here’s Julianne Hough in blackface at a Halloween party this weekend and with the blackface rubbed off by the time she left. Full Story

Angelina Jolie took her kids out shopping the other day in Queensland, Australia where she’s directing her next film Unbroken. I don’t understand these pants. Like, I’m all for an elastic waistband but these…these are not sweatpants. The material is too nice. These are more like…palazzo pants. Full Story
Katie Holmes has joined Twitter -- @KatieHolmes212. So, like, KatieHolmesNYC? Her first tweet was a retweet from the set of The Giver in South Africa. She’s standing next to Taylor Swift. Her second tweet involved a lot of exclamation points. Will she be one of those “inspirational quote” tweeters? Will she keep it to promotion only? Will she go start showing us her Thanksgiving turkey recipes? Will she become one of those “mom” tweeters? Example: “Helping Suri with her math homework. Mommy and baby time!” Oh God, do you think she’s a compliment re-tweeter?
So. About this Russell Brand interview – have you seen it yet? Click here if you haven’t. I’m still trying to decide – is he actually articulate or are we just so conditioned to celebrities NOT being articulate that we have to praise one who can put a sentence together? Is it problematic for you to hear about someone who’s valued at $20 million arguing for wealth redistribution? Watch it back with that in mind and let me know your thoughts.
Have a great weekend!

There are so few things in life that a person can feel %100 good about. French fries, sunshine, even Beyonce -- most things that are ostensibly pure have a destructive and evil side. BUT we’ve got some news today that can do nothing but spread joy and cheer across the land – Octavia Spencer is going to star in a reboot of…MURDER…SHE WROTE! It’s like…you know that thing where Ryan Murphy tries to make a show for/about gay stuff, so he just takes every single gay thing on Earth – Kathy Bates, teen witches, Dylan McDermott’s ass, etc. Full Story
