Russell,
You really don't want to play Robin Hood. If your name is not Errol Flynn, that is the role that kills careers. Look to Kevin Costner as a cautionary tale.

Do you think that if all the journalists in all the world joined together and committed to not ever writing another word about Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, they'd eventually go away?

I second Melinda's suggestion. Heidi and Spencer- publicity hogs-- need to go away.

That painting looks NOTHING like Madonna or Guy Ritchie. I think the artist just made an ugly painting and then thought, what can I name this so that it will sell for a ridiculous amount of money?

If I were stupid enough to buy that I'd stay anonymous too.

The whole Heincer nonsense reeks of publicity stunt for a dying TV show.

Larry David looks like he's beating the critics to gagging over the movie.

The role of Robin Hood didn't do Cary Elwes' career any favors either. (Though I'd love to see Dick Gautier's "When Things Were Rotten Again" TV show again just to see if it's as funny as I remember it.)

OK, if I didn't have enough reason to despise Paris Hilton, the chandeliers in the doggie mansion just put her even further over the top for me. Poor people are starving, but the pampered Pomeranian has a fricking chandelier.

And why does a dog need a wardrobe?!

Too bad they are in the jungle, otherwise the show could change the locks to keep Heincer from every coming back.

Third Melinda's suggestion.

You know, depending on the role, I can see Liam Niessen on the A-Team. It works.

I, for one, would pay good money to see Liam Neeson play Mr. T.

I pity the fool.

Heincer need their own show. How about "I'm a Celebrity Yo-Yo." (First episode: Spencer walks the dog, then sings along with her on her new single.)


I can't help but think that with all the nekkid Madonna pictures out there, the painting had to have been bought by some rich perv with a thing for Guy Ritchie.


Russell Crowe and director Ridley Scott butting heads: and McG will take on the winner in the finals.


"Three dollar-" is an adjective a lot of people use in the the same sentence as "Britney Spears," isn't it?

I meant "When Things Were Rotten."

"When Things Were Rotten"!!!!!!

That takes me back.

I thought the painting of Madonna & Ritchie was gonna be NSFW in a good way...

Call it a hunch, but I'm guessing Liam Neeson would be playing Hannibal Smith and not, say, B.A. Baracus. Although I'd love to see him pitying foo's.


Hmmm...you know, I'm looking for housing. Where does one apply to be one of Paris Hilton's dogs? Chandeliers, poolside quarters, plus the opportunity to leave dog poop on her floors.

Three dollars to see Britney? The tube pass would cost more just to get to the Arena. She might as well present the concerts in an Underground station.

Errol Flynn. Yum.
Who will star in the Captain Blood remake of a remake?

Ahh- the A-TEam-- my ringtone. :) I'd like to see George Clooney as Hannibal...

Or throw in a free lap dance to boost attendance. (Pretty much how the choreography already is).

Hello all. First time commenting - love reading the blog and the comments.

Liz - can you provide info on the whereabouts and times of Salt filming in DC? Also, what about something attached to the blog of updates/info/locations of all the movies/tv shows filming in DC? Maybe all of this info is out there already and I have missed it.

Thanks!

Clooney as Hannibal

Hahaha, I like it! But I think Clooney would be even better as Howlin' Mad Murdock.

Posted by: Bawlmer51 | June 9, 2009 10:22 AM | Report abuse

Oh please, Clooney is Face. Totally and completely. The roguish fixer.

Posted by: epjd | June 9, 2009 10:26 AM | Report abuse

Yeah, I guess he'd be a better Face...I just think it'd be hilarious to see him as Murdock. Brad Pitt could play his invisible dog Billy.

Face- yea, that's what I meant to say. I totally need more coffee.

"[Lindsay] was spotted in London with a diamond ring on her left hand (where engagement rings are usually worn, although she had it on her third finger instead of ring finger)."

Was she flashing her engagement ring or flipping off the paps?

"Russell Crowe and director Ridley Scott butting heads on "Robin Hood" set..."

Ridley Scott is very thankful he didn't cast Keiffer Southerland in the role.

"Tickets to Britney Spears's London concerts sell for as low as $3..."

Britney's promoter now regrets quitting his job at General Motors.

ROFL ... when I looked at that painting I didn't know which man was Madonna!

I always roll my eyes when tabloids describe Braneglina as looking "so much in love". Um, guys? They're ACTORS ...

Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee: The DD Team.

Posted by: sasquatchbigfoot | June 9, 2009 1:41 PM | Report abuse

mdreader, From what I've heard, Russell Crowe could hold his own in a head-butting contest. Plus he could beat Kiefer in a Batttle of the Bands.

The A Team is one TV show whose remake would obviously not suffer by quality comparison with the original. Unless it WAS Pammy & Tommy Lee. Or Heincer.

How about "Get Me Out of Here, I Want to Be a Celebrity"

Wait, that's what's already on.

Is that DD or VD, sas?

Now we now WHY you bought the Madonna/Guy Richie painting - and all along, I thought it was to replace the big pile of porn your mother made you burn!

A little noticed item in the Pammy Lee story:

"But in a sign of their status as a global super-band Vince said: 'I don't really see her because we each have our own buses.'"

Motley Crue must have one hellacious carbon footprint.

Whichever it is, one thought applies equally to each of them:

I pity de fool!

Assuming that there will be a re-make of the A-Team, who will play the role of Mister T. More important, what will he eat?

Rotten Tomatoes is reporting that Bradley Cooper will be Faceman on the A-Team movie...ugh. They need a guy whose attractive and charming to women and he just does not cut it, especially as he seems to specialize in cad roles.

Michael Clarke Duncan would make an excellent B.A.
