Comic-Con Update

Comic-COn...

What we learned on preview night:

Comic-Con should be called Wait-Con. As soon as we arrived at the convention center, Liz and I spent TWO HOURS standing in the longest press line in media queuing history. We eventually got our coveted badges, but we also aged roughly three years in the process. Given the crowds, this is likely only a preview of more line-waiting to come. -- Jen

It is possible to enter the exhibition hall a completely normal person and exit with everything necessary to exit as an elf, Sith, Jack Sparrow or this chick. -- Liz


What's all the hub-bub about? A free plastic bag at the Warner Bros. booth. (Liz Kelly for washingtonpost.com)

I caught a portion of the pilot for the upcoming J.J. Abrams series "Fringe," featuring Lance Reddick of "Lost" and "The Wire" fame. When the episode closed, the audience responded with polite applause. The response was positive, if a bit lukewarm. I didn't get the sense that people were super-jazzed about it, but then again, maybe they also were suffering from post traumatic line-waiting disorder. -- Jen

Must-have swag item: The Wonder Woman bag that Warner Bros. was handing out last night to lucky Comic-Coners on the exhibition hall floor. -- Jen

Coming Up Today:

Between the panel on "Twilight," the upcoming film based on the hugely popular young adult vampire novels by Stephanie Meyer, and the preview of Alan Ball's upcoming vampire HBO series "True Blood," the theme of the day just may be sucking blood. -- Jen

I'll continue the vampire theme when I meet with "Lost Boys 2" cast member Corey Feldman, then switch into anime mode to discuss "Afro Samurai" with Samuel L. Jackson. -- Liz

Join convention panelist Neil Patrick Harris live at 10 a.m. ET to talk about "Harold and Kumar," "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," "How I Met Your Mother" and more. -- Liz

Liz Kelly, you didn't really mean for the Steve Guttenberg link to be "http://blog.washingtonpost.com/celebritology/2008/07/Tonight was a big eye opener.

You can tell the wax Amy Winehouse from the real Amy by determining which one appears to be more healthy and then talking to the other one.

There's a paragraph describing the Playboy Playmate doll that is incredibly creepy: "[I]t was exactly like a tiny f*** doll, complete with tiny but appropriately placed holes, rooted hair and dead eyes..."

Wax Amy looks so incredibly lifelike. Whacked Amy, not so much. (Curmudgeon, I wrote this before yours was posted, so I am sticking with it.)

That Top 10 Bachelors list tells you everything you need to know about the people who answer tv polls. What's *really* scary is that some of those people also vote in elections.

Either some copyeditor at US doesn't know how to write a good headline, or Sienna Miller is *really* going to go batcelinedion crazy when she finds out there are also pictures of her with her jumbly-wumblies hanging out.

But then, it WAS Bruce Campbell so it was kinda worth the wait.

From msnbc.com:

Little sis's music gets the thumbs up from LiLo
At 14 years old, she's already a reality TV star with the beginnings of a music career, but for Ali Lohan, success requires a little something more -- the approval of her big sis, Lindsay.

Though Ali told People magazine she could hardly stand to let Lindsay listen to her new single, "All the Way Around," the teen's happy to have the sisterly thumbs-up.

"Lindsay loves it," Ali said. "It was nerve-wracking to hear from her because she's so hugely successful, so I was like 'No, don't listen to it!' I ran out of the room when she listened to it. She's really proud of me."

Apparently, Lindsay's ever-present BFF, DJ Samantha Ronson, dug the track, too, leaving Ali hopeful for a Sam-styled remix one day.

Perhaps these people in New Zealand could offer some creative names for Celebrity babies:

Name change for Talula Does The Hula from Hawaii
AFP July 24, 2008

WELLINGTON - A New Zealand judge has ordered a name change for an embarrassed nine-year-old girl called Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii, a local newspaper reported Thursday.

The girl was so embarrassed that she had not revealed the name given by her parents to friends, who simply knew her as K, the Taranaki Daily News said.

Family court judge Rob Murfitt said in a judgement made in February -- but not released until Thursday -- that oddball monikers created social hurdles as children grew up.

"She fears being mocked and teased and in that she has a greater level of insight than either of her parents," he said of the girl.

The judge discovered New Zealand parents had given their children some other unusual names including Number 16 Bus Shelter and Midnight Chardonnay, both of which may relate to the conception of the child.

One child was named Violence and two pairs of twins were called Benson and Hedges and Fish and Chips. The children from one family were all named after six-cylinder Ford cars.

physically attacked sounds like an all out assault. not clear that's what happened. the british papers are reporting that one of his sisters hit him up for a $200k loan or thereabouts, so she could raise her 3 children. he said no and it devolved from there. the sister started saying some very snarky things about his wife, which had nothing to do w/the loan request. paper says he then pushed his mother and sister. not that he should have done that. however, that action is different than a physical attack.

Wesley Nault may have been ousted from Project Runway on Wednesday night, but there's a silver lining for the designer -- he's happily dating a fellow Runway contestant.

Nault (far left), 23, confirmed to PEOPLE that he's in a relationship with fellow season 5 contestant, Daniel Feld (near left), 25.

"We met on the show," Nault told PEOPLE. "And we tried to keep it very professional on the show because we were both there for our careers, and we didn't expect this to come out of it. But I'm really happy."

Speculation about a relationship between Project Runway contestants - a first for the Bravo show - began online after fashion bloggers noted that both designers listed that they were "in a relationship" on their MySpace pages. And both listed each other as a "top friend."

Runway's executive producer Jane Lipsitz also confirmed to PEOPLE that two of this season's contestants were dating each other, but never specifically named them.

"I am shocked that they're talking about this, I really am," Nault says about the buzz surrounding his relationship. "I'm shocked it's such a big deal."

And rest assured, Runway fans, the designing duo are going strong. "We're still together - and it's going really well," says Nault.

So well, in fact, that the two designers may have a professional collaboration to look forward to.

"Daniel and I are talking about possibly working on something together," Nault says. "Everything's in the works right now." -Brian Orloff

Check back later for more of PEOPLE's Q&A with Wesley.

As for the names iwth songs. Been there done that. It's freaking annoying. I finally just changed my name. Don't do that to a child. YOU may not subject your child to the song, but others will. Repeatedly. All while acting like they are the first person to make the connection and do it.

I haven't heard much from him lately (maybe he's been under the weather ever since he had that alien erupt from his torso), but John Hurt has one of the best voices ever.

Also, I know Mel Gibson isn't exactly flavor-of-the-month after his appallingly bad behavior, but he does have a good voice. It's always been one of his better qualities, I think.

Alex, it was another of my frequent dyslexic typos. But now that I think about it, there may be taco gender. For example, a tuna taco would most likely be female, while a pork taco would likely be male.

Jake e., the overwhelming majority of chicken tacos are of the female gender.

Had to take both kitties to the vet so I'm here late today. Thanks for the Barry White links. Our phone book list now has Alan Rickman, James Earl Jones, Sam Elliot, Barry White, Mel Gibson and John Hurt.

The troll who is calling Jackman gay is just baiting -- this is a continuation of yesterday. As yet again, an actor who portrayed a gay character must really be gay (despite a 12 year marriage and two kids). It's tiresome. I propose we ignore all accusations of gayness henceforth and maybe he'll just go away.

I heard about those pics of Brad and angelina and a couple of the kids out on the lawn (the twins not in evidence--and even if they were it wouldn't affect the deal for the authorized posed pictures). All I can say is I hope they sue the celinedion out of the photographer. Here they are on a ginormous estate minding their own business and feeling secure and some piece of celinedion photographer snaps some shots hanging upside down from a tree branch a mile away with a lens big enough to pick out a wart on Jupiter. Reminds me of Diana--no wonder the poor woman had emotional problems, she was being stalked 24/7.

I could almost feel sorry for Sienna Miller. Standing topless on a balcony isn't the brightest move, but in some of those shots they appeared to be inside -- I think it was Elizabeth Taylor who won a big lawsuit over pictures shot through a window from a distance (?) -- even the courts consider that out of bounds.

Must check out the NPH chat -- I was watching million dollar password to help a friend prep for audition and he was really really good at it. Very smart and intuitive. Surprisingly, Rosie O'Donnell was also a celeb you'd want to get partnered with -- very fast and accurate.

I probably won't be around on Friday, but hopefully Liz K will pick this up. As if we had any doubts left, Heather Mills is officially cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. She can't keep a lawyer or a publicist. According to Access H'wood, she had a shoutfest w/ her US publicist, who then quit.

"The activist's U.S. rep quit, but rather than keep the matter quiet, she released a statement calling the former Beatle wife "impossible."

"After working for Heather Mills for the past four years, I have decided to cease representing her. Since her divorce has become final, in my opinion, Heather has become an impossible person," rep Michele Elyzabeth said in a statement released to the media.

Elyzabeth claims Mills called her names during a conversation on Wednesday.

"Yesterday, we engaged in a heated argument during which she called me 'stupid.'" Elyzabeth's (the publicist) statement continued. "I reminded her that she was not 'God' and she answered, 'I will never ever talk to you again.'"

Elyzabeth said this incident was the final straw in their working relationship.

"I have been very patient in my dealings with Heather, however, I cannot take any more," Elyzabeth wrote. "I have given her substantial unpaid time and attention. I am owed money. I refuse to be subjected to her outbursts. On reflection and given the way I have been treated, I now have sympathy with much of what the British press has reported about her.""
