There May Be a NEW INDIANA JONES in Town…

Bradley Cooper the a team shirtlessNerds, flex your gag reflex. People who thought Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a completely acceptable movie: I have good news for you!

Disney may be recasting Bradley Cooper as Indy, replacing 71-year-old Harrison Ford after four runs as professor Jones beginning in 1981 with the spectacular Raiders of the Lost Ark. (I love the smell of melting Nazis in the morning.)

A source for Latino Review says the studio is “100% prepared” to move ahead with a younger actor for Indiana Jones 5, with Cooper at the head of the list. LR adds that Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles) is being considered for lead script writing duties.

Bradley Cooper Likes Gerard Butler More Than he Likes his New Girlfriend

Bradley Cooper Gerard Butler tennis
Bradley Cooper brought a date to Wimbledon and it wasn’t his girlfriend, 21-year-old model Suki Waterhouse. While Waterhouse was technically present, Cooper had tunnel vision for Gerard.

Coop and Butte opted to pose for photos together and laugh it up in matching suits instead of paying much attention to Andy Murray’s win over Novak Djokovic.  Continue reading “Bradley Cooper Likes Gerard Butler More Than he Likes his New Girlfriend”

Trailer: The Hangover Part 3

Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Justin Bartha and Zach Galifianakis are back in Vegas for The Hangover Part III. This is what happens when you make unwarranted sequels…

Giraffes instead of tigers, John Goodman’s goons and a Melissa McCarthy cameo.

Differences Between ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ The Movie And Book

Bradley Cooper Silver Linings Playbook As much as I loved Silver Linings Playbook the movie, I noticed some strange things with the timeline and didn’t completely understand why Bradley Cooper’s character suddenly seemed to forget about getting back together with his wife Nikki in favor of the girl (Tiffany, Jennifer Lawrence) he seemed to regard as a friend throughout the entire film.

Then, in the improper order, I picked up the book (with the faces and voices of the actors and actresses imprinted in my mind) and it all made sense. Here are the major differences between Silver Linings Playbook (2012) directed by David O. Russell, and The Silver Linings Playbook (2008) written by Matthew Quick…

New York Observer Critic Needs To Be Clotheslined and Buried Alive in Cement

I saw Silver Linings Playbook yesterday and enjoyed it as much as Looper and Argo, my two prior favorite movies of 2012.

Lone critic for the Observer disagrees, calling out the title (based on a book), Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jennifer Lawrence and the director (David O. Russell, The Fighter, I Heart Huckabees).

I draw the line at the word “overrated” being used anywhere near the vicinity of Jennifer Lawrence, whose Oscar-nominated performance in Winter’s Bone speaks for itself.

Slap-worthy excerpts:

“The ridiculously titled Silver Linings Playbook, not in the same league as The Fighter, doesn’t do for Bradley Cooper what that movie did for Mark Wahlberg.”  Continue reading “New York Observer Critic Needs To Be Clotheslined and Buried Alive in Cement”

Behind The Scenes Photos of ‘The Hangover Part III’

This is it, the final movie in The Hangover series. A movie that didn’t need a sequel to begin with, but got one because it did so surprisingly well at the box office and on DVD.

Now there’s a third and it appears to take place in a cemetery and then somewhere dusty and desolate that could be Nevada but definitely isn’t Thailand.

Director Todd Phillips posted these beauteous photos of the cast (Justin Bartha, Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong and John Goodman).

Are you as blah about this movie as I am? Like, blah because you feel obligated to watch it but wish you  didn’t care? That’s how I felt about every season of Weeds after three.  Continue reading “Behind The Scenes Photos of ‘The Hangover Part III’”

GQ’s Men Of The Year


Yesterday marked the annual Men Of The Year ceremony where GQ Magazine unveiled their (mostly) testosterone-driven covers for October.

I have no clue why they choose to announce one woman of the year?  Why pick the aging Dutch model Lara Stone? (And by aging I mean she’s older than me, which is older than the pyramids in that industry)…
