It’s Coming Outta Me Like Lava!!! Film & TV Updates That Is, I Don’t Know What You Were Thinking…

  • Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical) has been cast as the lead in a CBS Comedy Pilot that has yet to be titled.
  • I did an Adele on Zac Efron once and gave him the bird.. 
  • Chris Egan (Letters To Juliet) has been cast in ABC’s Drama Pilot BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. No word as to which role he’ll play in this medieval set show but my guess is he’ll be the Beauty.
  • Dennis Quaid & Michael Chiklis are cast as leads in a new Las Vegas drama set in the 1960’s for CBS.
  • Do you think Meg Ryan looks really ugly when she puts her cry face on?

  • Vince Flynn’s AMERICAN ASSASSIN set to become a film for CBS Films.
  • Monica Raymund joins NBCs CHICAGO FIRE
  • Sharon Woodward (Raising Hope) has joined Emma Roberts in ADULTWORLD
  • That doesn’t mean she’s grown up – that’s the name of the movie – I dont’ think Emma Roberts belongs in Adult world after AQUAMARINE
  • The Puzo Estate is about to release a new GODFATHER novel THE FAMILY CORLEONE. They are being sued by PARAMOUNT as they did not ask their permission to publish it and it tarnishes the ‘legacy’. PARAMOUNT owns the rights to the Godfather property. Read: It means that they didn’t get a chance to assess potential adaption opportunities or negotiate royalties on the book before its release – big smacks Puzo’s
  • I hope Sacha Baron Cohen rocks up to the OSCARS as his DICTATOR character – it will help what is going to be a very dull awards ceremony this year.
  • Just heard 30 seconds of a new Madonna song off M.D.N.A. called Girls Gone Wild – it was S.H.T.
  • Denise Eriksen, Head Of Current Affairs At The ABC, has resigned today. Maybe she heard that f*cking awful Madonna sample too!
  • Did anyone else confuse THE HUNGER GAMES with a feature version of an extreme episode of THE BIGGEST LOSER?
