Celebritology Weekend: The John Edwards movie and a project for Meryl Streep and Tina Fey

Three celeb-centric stories on our radar this weekend: John Edwards, coming to a theater near you. (File photo) John Edwards: The Movie: Aaron Sorkin -- a writer who demonstrated his deftness with political drama in TV's “The West Wing” -- is turning his focus to a different sort of political intrigue. Sorkin plans to make his directorial debut with an adaptation of “The Politician,” the juicy John Edwards tell-all book written by the one-time senator's former aide, Andrew Young. "This is a first-hand account of an extraordinary story filled with motivations, decisions and consequences that would have lit Shakespeare up," Sorkin said in a statement reported by Variety and other media outlets. Now the most pressing question: who will be cast? As we noted in the blog on Friday, we humbly suggest million-dollar-smiler Tom Cruise in the role of John Edwards (Dennis Quaid also makes a strong option), Tea Leoni...

George Clooney: Setting the celeb courtroom standard

George Clooney, charming his way through Italy's judicial system. (AP) After all the courtroom hubbub about Lindsay Lohan, the current legal ugliness involving Mel Gibson and the carping about the Roman Polanski case, it's weirdly comforting to see a movie star who knows how to handle a judicial proceeding like, well, a movie star. That movie star? Clooney. George Clooney. While testifying in Milan against three individuals facing fraud charges for using Clooney's name and likeness to launch a fashion line, he appears to have reported on time. While on the stand, according to the Associated Press, he kept things entertaining. ("I also don't wear long jean shorts," he noted while explaining that he was not actually in a photograph that clamed to feature his likeness.) And, as you'll see in the video below, he moved calmly and cooly through a swarm of media and fans. "Don't crush my...

Friday List: The 'Green Lantern' costume and other superhero ensemble mistakes

Posted by Paul Williams Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern mode. (Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly) The first pictures of Ryan Reynolds in costume for the upcoming "Green Lantern" movie were revealed yesterday, to mixed reviews from fans. (I tend to agree with the commenter who wrote "it looks like he has been skinned and his muscles are green.") Comic book costumes have been notoriously hard to translate to film. What works on a printed page can look ridiculous. Some films -- "X-Men" and "Dark Knight" -- forgo the underwear-on-the-outside look altogether. But too many changes also run the risk of alienating a character's fans. In light of the "Lantern" revelation -- and the fact that Comic-Con gets underway next week -- let us consider some of the odder decisions in comic book-to-film translation. General Zod ("Superman II"): General Zod was Krypton's greatest military leader, though historians are unsure how much of...

The critics who dared not to like 'Inception'

Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in 'Inception" While Jen may be preparing for Christopher Nolan’s new mind-bender “Inception” to be the "Avatar" of next year's awards-season, some critics aren’t rolling out the red carpet for the film. Yes, the majority of reviews have been positive. On Rotten Tomatoes community, “Inception” currently has an 84-percent approval rating; Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday, among others, gave the movie a glowing review. But wait! Take out the reviewers who don't write for your more standard mainstream outlets and reduce the field to the so-called "Top Critics" and the rating drops to 73 percent. So who are these detractors and what exactly is their problem? Here’s a few of the critics whose minds remain decidedly unblown by "Inception." David Edelstein, New York Magazine Respected film critic David Edelstein is one of the stronger detractors of the film. “I...

Casting Aaron Sorkin's John Edwards movie

Aaron Sorkin has announced that he will make his directorial debut with a big screen adaptation of "The Politician," Andrew Young's tell-all about the sordid affairs of one-time presidential candidate John Edwards. Sorkin has demonstrated a flair for capturing political drama in movies like "The American President" and, of course, in NBC's "The West Wing," a show he created. The guy probably doesn't need any help in the screenplay-crafting department. But maybe he could use a hand with casting. So, in an effort to make Aaron Sorkin's life easier, we've got four of the key roles in "The Politician" all figured out. As John Edwards: Tom Cruise (AP) They've both got smiles that flash brighter than 1,000 halogen lamps. And for Cruise, this would present the kind of acting challenge he hasn't tackled in a while. If he could master that Carolina drawl and Edwards' affable smarminess, maybe he'd even...

Lindsay Lohan checks into rehab

Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab. People magazine reports that the recently sentenced actress has checked into Pickford Lofts, a sober house in L.A. She checked in Wednesday and is still there today. This news comes on the heels of reports that Robert Shapiro, former lawyer for O.J. Simpson, is in the process of taking over as Lohan's attorney. The "Mean Girls" star is still expected to report to jail on Tuesday, but it appears she is hoping for a reduced or altered sentence once the judge sees that she has taken positive steps toward rehabilitation. Lohan has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for violating her probation, to be followed by time in rehab. Gallery: Lindsay Lohan sentenced to jail...

Does Angelina Jolie really want Anna Chapman to see 'Salt'?

Anna Chapman: wanted, but not by Angelina Jolie. | PHOTO GALLERY (AP) Reports surfaced today that Angelina Jolie is allegedly attempting to invite Anna Chapman -- you know her: cute, in her late '20s, probable Russian spy -- to the Moscow premiere of "Salt." Except that it appears the whole thing is untrue. The New York Post reported that Russian promoters of the movie are scrambling to track down Chapman, who is being debriefed and does not have access to a cell phone. The Post quotes a gentleman by the name of Igor Dubinin, who supposedly told the Russian Web site Lifenews.ru: "How are we going to look for Chapman? We have no idea." Well, the Russian news agency Ria Novosti now says it's all bunk. A Sony spokesperson told the agency that any stories about Jolie -- who plays a suspected Russian spy in the upcoming film --...

How many award nominations will 'Inception' score?

More reviews of "Inception" are in, including one from the Post's Ann Hornaday. And at this point, even though the Academy Awards are still months away, it appears to be a foregone conclusion that Christopher Nolan's twist-your-brain-until-it's-a-pretzel thriller is going to get some Oscar love. The New York Post is saying it. So is New York Magazine. Heck, the blog Film School Rejects has already called a win for Best Picture. Roll up the red carpet at Hollywood and Highland, boys. The show's already over. But wait, I haven't jumped into the fray yet! I had planned to yesterday, but I got detained while trying to untangle the knots in my cerebellum after an "Inception" screening on Tuesday night. So today -- as part of a new awards-season handicapping series in Celebritology to be dubbed "The Contenders" -- I examine the nomination odds for "Inception" at some of this year's...

What Lindsay Lohan can learn from Mel Gibson and other celebrity lawbreakers

Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes Lindsay Lohan sentenced | PHOTO GALLERY (Reuters) Even though Lindsay Lohan's 90-day jail sentence hasn’t begun, speculation over her first post-jail interview is running pretty high. PopEater reports the bidding for what I'm calling the "Lohan Interview of the Century" is starting at the bargain basement price of $500,000. Other sources in the same article say she could get $1 million. And while it seems that Lohan herself doesn’t think she’s headed to the slammer, everyone else does. Let’s just hope they let her Tweet from jail. As Lohan's jail time looms, reality presumably sets in and more rumors about alleged interview bids continue to swirl, let's look at four post-scandal celebrity interviews that could teach Lohan a few lessons....

More Mel Gibson rage in tape No. 4

Mel Gibson: on fire again in latest tape. (AP) | PHOTO GALLERY It seemed, for a brief, magical moment, that perhaps we could go for one day without another rage-filled Mel Gibson tape. Pipe dream, people. Pipe dream. Today's Mel Gibson recording -- part four in the ongoing series -- was released a short time ago and features the actor insisting that "he's been nothing but nice" to ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Shortly thereafter, he shouts: "You're a pain in my [expletive]. Stop being that!" Once again, these tapes have not been authenticated and Gibson has yet to comment on them, other than to accuse Grigorieva -- the woman who serves as the alleged target of his audio-recorded anger -- of committing extortion by using the release of the tapes as a threat. As always, you can listen to the NSFW tape at Radar Online, a Web site that now...

From Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston to Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz: Recent celeb pairings that surprised us most

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, one of several recent wedding/engagement shockers. (Reuters) | PHOTO GALLERY The news this morning that Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have gotten engaged -- information that, based on this Us Magazine interview, may be as much of a surprise to Sarah Palin as it is to the rest of us -- is the latest in a rash of celebrity weddings and engagements, some more out of the blue than others. So which pairing, so far, has been the most unexpected? Was it the low-key nuptials between Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green? Or the ones between Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz? Zoe Saldana's recently announced engagement to longtime boyfriend Keith Britton? Let's take a look at some of the pairings and determine their individual "surprise" factors.

'The Hills' heads for the hills

"The Hills" -- an MTV reality series that served as such a significant public service that, frankly, I never understood why it didn't air on PBS -- comes to a close tonight after six much-celebrated seasons. Undoubtedly, hardcore "Hills" fans will host viewing parties tonight, where they willl dress up as Heidi Montag -- both the pre-plastic surgery version and the post -- while sipping on cocktails with names like the Justin-Bobby Gin Fizz and Sex on Laguna Beach. How will the series come to a close? Is there any chance it will turn out that all the people on this show have been dead for all or part of the past several years? And if that is how it ends, how to explain Spencer Pratt's Twitter feed? (But seriously: how does one explain Spencer Pratt's Twitter feed?) We don't know how it will all wrap up. So the best...

Mel Gibson: Yet another audio tape, yet another slur

Another Mel Gibson audio tape has been released by Radar Online. Wow, Gibson has a little franchise going here, doesn't he? Perhaps entitled "The Passion of the Crazy"? Mel Gibson, keeping that mouth wide open. (AP) Once again, like the first audio recording that was released, as well as the second, this has not been authenticated. If it is legitimate and that is indeed Gibson's voice screaming at ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, this recording includes Gibson's use of the derogatory term wetback to describe an employee who cares for the couple's daughter. Other gems from the tape: "You're a [bleeping], using whore. Now I own you." and "Your logic sucks because you're a [bleeping] mentally deprived idiot." Grigorieva, not to be outdone, also talks about how Gibson owns both her liver and her kidneys. Anyone feel like the sequels in this Gibson audio trilogy are not quite as solid as the...

On the 25th anniversary of Live Aid, a look at the most '80s moments from the mega-concert

On July 13, 1985, Live Aid -- an effort to raise money for starving Ethiopians by harnessing the persuasive musical powers of everyone from David Bowie to the Thompson Twins -- rocked two continents with performances that lasted 16 hours, were broadcast on multiple television networks and seen by an estimated 1.5 billion TV viewers worldwide. For those of us hitting the cusp of our teen years at that time, Live Aid was a huge deal. Like, huger than the debut of a Duran Duran video and a new Molly Ringwald movie combined. I remember waking up and tuning in at 7 a.m. on the dot to ensure I didn't miss a minute of those 16 hours and the anticipated sets they would bring from U2, the aforementioned Duran Duran and, perhaps most awesomely, Queen. The obsession with Live Aid in my house didn't end after July 13th was over....

Mel Gibson audio: Yes, there is more

First there was the damning audio tape of Mel Gibson's expletive-laden, racist tirade toward ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva, at a movie premiere last year. (Getty Images) Now Radar Online has released audio of a second conversation -- audio that is filled with more foul language and, for what it's worth, does not appear to have been authenticated -- in which Gibson threatens to kill Grigorieva. At this point, it's getting pretty difficult for anyone in Hollywood or elsewhere to do or say something supportive of the guy. Even pal Jodie Foster, who directed Gibson in "The Beaver," a low-budget comedy whose release date is now up in the air, hasn't issued a statement of support yet. Robert De Niro -- who backed out of co-starring with Gibson in the recent "Edge of Darkness" because of creative differences -- did have something semi-positive to say to the...

Weekend box office: 'Despicable Me' triumphs over 'Twilight'

The animated, moon-heist adventure "Despicable Me" outdoes the vamps and werewolves of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" to become the weekend's No. 1 movie. Meanwhile, "Predators" gets a relatively decent start, "The Last Airbender" moves beyond the $100 million mark and some excellent indies have something to celebrate, too. Keep reading for more details on the weekend box office. "Despicable"? Try profitable. (Universal) "Despicable Me" raked in $60.1 million, opening way ahead of studio projectons. Though, really, this shouldn't be that much of a surprise. The movie has been promoted extensively, starting way back in February with a high-profile Super Bowl commercial. It appeals to families. And the reviews and audience buzz were strong. The Steve Carell-voiced film played a key role in the overall box office performance, which was up roughly 43 percent compared to the same weekend last year, according to Box Office Mojo. Business for "Eclipse" dropped by...

Roman Polanski will not be extradited to the U.S.

Text updated, July 12 at 9 a.m. EST: Looks like filmmaker Roman Polanski won't be coming to the U.S. to face charges in a 1977 rape case. Roman Polanski, not en route to the U.S. (Michael Euler/AP) The Swiss Ministry of Justice announced this morning that it does not plan to extradite the Academy Award winner, according to several news reports. The decision means he will not face charges in a decades-old rape case in the U.S. and is now a free man. Polanski, 76, moved to France in 1978 while facing charges in the U.S. of committing sexual assault against a 13-year-old girl. Last year, Polanski was arrested at the behest of U.S. authorities while attempting to travel to Zurich to receive a lifetime achievement award. He was placed on house arrest while awaiting a decision on his extradition to the States, but Ministry officials said today he is...

Comic-Con 2010: 'Harry Potter,' 'Lost,' 'Glee' and more highlights from final two days of Comic-Con

Simon Pegg, heading to Comic-Con to promote a movie about ... Comic-Con. (AP) The complete schedule for Comic-Con 2010 has now been released. I've already hit the highlights of Thursday and Friday, so now let's look at the weekend dates. As expected, Saturday is packed with so many intriguing panels, apparently some of us may need to clone ourselves in order to hit multiple corners of the San Diego Convention Center at the same time. Given the brain power and scientific know-how among Comic-Con attendees, that's probably not entirely out of the question. Seriously, there is no way to hit every worthwhile event that's happening Saturday and Sunday at the Con. But here, at least, are some of the highlights. As the big event gets closer, stick with Celebritology for continuing coverage of the annual mega-event for connoisseurs of pop culture, where the worlds of comics, movies, TV, video...
