Isaiah Mustafa: "I'm the man your man wishes he could smell like, especially when the movie your man is in smells like a Jennifer Aniston rom-com."

"Old Spice Guy cast in Jennifer Aniston movie" -- He's going to tell her that her new perfume stinks. And to put a shirt on. Then he and Lucky Vanous are going out to have a Diet Coke and take their shirts off.

"Lindsay Lohan wants family time before rehab stint" -- C'mon, they had this Quarters game set up months ago. Do you know how hard it is to get these people together in one place at the same time?

...quality time with her dad.

SPLOOT! Well-played. There goes my tea, all over the keyboard.


Old Spice Guy cast in Jennifer Aniston movie.

Barbara Feldon advanced successfully from being a siren on shaving cream (right?) commercials to her co-star gig on "Get Smart," so this is not inherently implausible.

Especially considering the part of her anatomy where Angie reportedly had her latest tat inked.

Lilo, didn't any of your previous rehabs tell you the family is part of the problem?

Wonder when the Gore police interview will be Wikileaked.

Note to all you hawt babes: the (previous) "Old Spice Guy" didn't used to look like that.

Jen, shame on you for getting me to think I was going to get a chance to post a question for a Jane Lynch Q&A.

PS Maybe the Wikileak of the Gore interview (which can't really be that interesting based on previous performance) is waiting for an X-Man First Class...

The front is airbrushed and made up, but nothing can hide the scary ropy arms, skeletal hands and unhealthy veiny look:

"Jen, shame on you for getting me to think I was going to get a chance to post a question for a Jane Lynch Q&A." --reddragon1

And it would've been a better question than any in that interview. She comes across as kinda boring in print (screen), like she was tired and phoning in (no pun intended) the interview. Then again, in person she was probably hilarious.

td, Jane Lynch has done a couple of fairly recent interviews with Terry Gross on NPR's "Fresh Air" that you might be able to find online. Perhaps you'd enjoy them more, since Gross is a worthy interviewer.

Yo, Liz Kelly: happy birthday, you.

Nooooo! Lee Pace, you are better than that! He makes me swoon, but I have a firm rule about not swooning for anyone affiliated with that franchise (they have enough obsessed fans as it is)

I have been going through serious Celebritology withdrawal. We lost internet Sunday night in the storm and it is stll not back. Finally found a close by library that had power. I had less trouble during the blizzards last winter.

I think LiLo is getting enough family time with all those jail visits. Off to rehab you go. A real one this time, not one run by your (now former) lawyer. Where they don't change the rules to fit your "lifestyle." Which is your problem, dearie.

"Chris Tucker reportedly owes IRS more than $11 million in back taxes . . ."

How is it possible that someone who I've never heard of has amassed enough money to owe eleven million dollars worth of taxes? Me, a loyal and devoted daily reader of Celebritology? In the immortal words of the King of Siam, it's a puzzlement.

Speaking of Old Spice guy: hilarious ad for libraries here, modeled on him. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll suddenly want to become a student again:
