I Visualised The Cast Of ‘The Circle’ Naked To Stop Myself Getting Excited About This Film & TV Update!

  • Reba McIntire’s new ABC comedy pilot MALIBU COUNTY has added none other than Lily Tomlin to the cast. With Reba and Lily headlining that gives the two principles a combined age of 357. The real trick will be to see if it can make it through season one – not from the point of ratings but here’s to hoping they survive it! I’m kidding Tomlin is comedic talent!
  • Ving Rhames (Piranha 3D), Mary Louise Parker (Weeds) and James Woods (Contact) are all confirmed for the indy film JAMESY BOY about a young man who is sent to prison and whilst there is befriended and mentored by an inmate. There’s a very cool, and hopefully inappropriate TOOL song on their UNDERTOW album that can go straight onto the soundtrack of this movie! Still, I see choreographed dancing and something about a disgruntled pigeon but I could be wrong!
  • The Weinstein Company are in a dispute with the MPAA (The U.S. Censorship Board) on the rating for their new documentary BULLY (trailer is here on the lowdown in the trailer park – check it out) – the film, which deals with high school bullying, has been given an R (roughly M-MA here) based on language. The Weinsteins are arguing that the films subject matter and importance for a young audience means it should be a softer rating and that an R excludes much of the films target audience. The MPAA is holding firm – the Weinsteins are considering a ‘Leave Of Absence’ from the MPAA
  • Scott Foley (the crappy bad guy in SCREAM 3) has been cast in the FOX comedy THE GOODWIN GAMES about 3 siblings who reconnect after their fathers death. Phew! I thought it was about a guy who plays games with Jennifer Goodwin – but that’d be on HBO if it were!
  • Thinking of the cast naked on The Circle totally killed my buzz – it totally worked – save it for when you are trying to keep yourself contained in public!
  • Powers Boothe has been cast in the new musical drama NASHVILLE for ABC
  • Judy Reyes lands the lead in Marc Cherry’s (Desperate Housewives) new show DEVIOUS MAIDS. Is it just me or is this just DESPERATE HOUSEMAIDS?
  • Jay Hernandez (Hostel) has been cast in Jerry Bruckheimer’s TROOPER for CBS. Approved!
  • Molly Meldrum is recovering well! … but Ive never seen a dog so ready to die as the one he’s holding in that photo – it’s like the pup is saying ‘Get Me The *&^% Out Of Here!!!!’
  • Sylvester Stallone’s BULLET TO THE HEAD has been pulled from release amidst a wall of stiff competition in the U.S. and will be redated soon.
  • FACEBOOK is going to become a one of the biggest film streaming sites as studios and production houses sign on for online options.
  • ARCHER, the animated super spy pisstake series has been renewed by FX. That is great news as the show is hysterical!
  • Amy Teegarden has nabbed the lead in the new show THE SELECTION – based on the book series of an epic romance that takes place 300 years in the future. So Amy was the selected for THE SELECTION out of a wall of potential selectees failed to get a selection.. BOOM!
  • Selectees is not a word by the way – I totally made that up – that’s how I roll!
  • Kahlin Giblan’s THE PROPHET is set to become a film via Salma Hayek’s production company.
  • Sorry to stop you but I would like to meet the person who came up with the ‘words’ – chillaxing, totes, amazeballs – and frankly any other of the offensively idiotic cancers on the English and make them STOP!! Everytime you use those words a kitten spontaneously combusts.
