I’ve Sweated Off A Vital Organ To Bring You This Film & TV Update (Look It’s Really Hot In Melbourne)

…And it’s a Sunday!?!?!?

  • Channel Seven are telecasting live from Canberra tomorrow for the Labor Party Bitchfight Vote off Between Big Kev & Primo Julia. Word on the street is if it’s a tie there will be jelly wrestling on the Parliament House lawn to determine a winner. Eddie McGuire will be reffing and Tony Abbott will be breaking to the Prime Ministers Office – only to realise it will never be his!
  • Ethan Peck, grandson of Gregory Peck, has joined the cast of SELECTION
  • Dorris Roberts, that annoying, totally unfunny mom of Ray Romano in EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND has joined the cast of COUNTER CULTURE. Counter Culture revolves around three aging sisters running their family diner together in West Texas who find that sibling dynamics are always getting in the way of getting the job done. – Deadline.
  • Really rethinking the jelly wrestling gag – that’s a vision no-one needs…
  • Julian Morris has been cast in FOX’s GUILTY TV pilot of a disbarred lawyer who solves cases from behind the scenes.
  • ABC’S BEAUTY & THE BEAST has cast its beast in the form of Darius Campbell (Darius? Really, is that a birth name or a stage name? Speaking of stage that’s where he comes from)
  • J.J. Abram’s new show REVOLUTION has added 3 more kiddies – Tracy Spiridakos, Anna Lise Phillips and Graham Rogers.
  • I wonder what the original Pippa from HOME & AWAY is up to now? I reckon she works at the Cabramatta 7/11 Thurs-Sun 11pm – 8am shifts and she watches those $2.50 muffins like a hawk!
  • Elaine Hendrix has joined the ABC comedy pilot AMERICAN JUDY
  • Bryan Greenberg has scored the lead in a new untitled comedy project for CBS
  • Martin Landau has joined the cast of an as yet untitled ABC drama centering on an astrophysicist who believes he is the chosen one to destroy the forces of evil. Landau will play a WWII German scientist who helps him. In the pilot episode, their first target, the writers, producers and mixers of Madonna’s utterly shitful album HARD CANDY. BURN IN HELL!
  • Ed Gathegi (The African American Vampire in TWILIGHT) has been cast in the TV show WHITE VAN MAN
  • Emilie De Ravin (Lost) is cast in the TV Drama AMERICANA
  • David Morrissey has joined THE WALKING DEAD as the recurring character THE GOVERNOR. Apparently Arnie turned the role down, actually I can’t back that up, I just totally made that up thinking there was a joke there somewhere involving him, Maria Shriver and a 2 Tonne Minke Whale but I just couldn’t make it work.
  • Bill Pullman has joined the cast of 1600 PENN, a TV Comedy where he will play the U.S. President. Hell, he’s done it before…
  • Martin Lawrence has a new comedy show that has been greenlit over at CBS. It’s either that or he waits for BAD BOYS 3 – which is coming people! Better that than another BIG MOMMA’S A REPULSIVELY UNFUNNY FRANCHISE sequel.
  • Channel 10 have announced two new reality shows – THE LIVING ROOM and BEING LARA BINGLE. Dear. God.
  • Just a quick recap – be there for the Aussie Priministerial Smackdown vote tomorrow night!
  • I promise I won’t joke about political jelly wrestling in Australia!
  • I like jelly though – I like lime jelly
  • Although it was a joke HARD CANDY is one of the worst albums of all time
  • BAD BOYS 3 is on the cards.
