Russell Brand vs. Ken Doll

Sean Hannity recently had a segment on his Fox News show called “Sympathy for the Terrorists.” Some think that his stance favors one side over the other, to the point where he shouted loudly at the guest who opposed his viewpoint.

For some reason, Russell Brand recorded himself reacting to the segment, tearing it apart bit by bit.

And at the top of it, he said that Hannity “does look a bit like the Ken doll in the Toy Story 3 film.” Of course, Brand didn’t want to appear “petty” or “trivial.”

Which is good. Otherwise, he might land a show on Fox News, mightn’t he?

Check out the video – see what you think.

Did You Get Caught in the Sharknado 2?

It seems like the folks at the Syfy Channel know what they’re doing when it comes to flying sharks terrorizing a major city.

Last year, Sharknado took a funnel cloud filled with sharks and unleashed it on the West Coast. Last night, Sharknado 2 did just about the same thing on the East Coast – this time plopping a bunch of snapping Jaws-like creatures on the Big Apple.

An hour or so after it aired last night, Hollywood Life wondered if it might be the best worst movie ever - “… so bad, it’s good…” is what they had to say.
Ian Ziering, one of the franchise players, hopes there’s a third installment on the way. “Sharkpocolypse Now!” is what he’s praying for.

The Twitterverse went nuts with commentary all night long at #Sharknado2TheSecondOne.

One of my favorite tweets came from the Ocean Conservancy. Check it out. And wait til next summer, I guess.

Garth Brooks Makes Atlanta Number 2

51st Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards - Inside
Country singer Garth Brooks is planning a comeback world tour. So far, he’s doing okay with the plans.

On Friday, he sold out ten shows in Chicago, the first stop on his tour.

Yesterday, he announced that his second stop will be the Philips Arena in Atlanta. The tickets go on sale next week, and it’s expected that multiple shows will be available by then.

Garth’s wife Trisha Yearwood will perform with him at all of his concerts. The tour is expected to last up to two years.

Which makes them the more durable country version of Beyonce and Jay Zee.

Girls Girl to Play Peter Pan

NBC has finally announced who’ll be playing the title role in their live-action performance presentation of Peter Pan on December 4.

Allison Williams, who plays Marnie on the HBO dramedy Girls, will put on the green costume and fly off to Neverland.

She says she’s wanted to play Peter Pan since she was about three years old, so the casting is a dream come true.

NBC’s chairman of entertainment says Allison will “bring the perfect blend of ‘boyish’ vulnerability and bravado to save the day.”

Did he just call the Girls girl a boy?

Here’s the good news: Christopher Walken already signed on as Captain Hook, otherwise Lena Dunham could have ended up in the role.

Bloom vs. The Biebs

Oh, to have been in Ibiza, Spain over the weekend...

Word from there says that actor Orlando Bloom (of Pirates of the Caribbean fame) threw a punch at Justin Bieber.

What happened prior to the punch is a case of he said/ she said. Orlando’s people say that Justin made a rude comment about Orlando’s ex. Justin’s people say that Orlando got in The Biebs’ face.

Either way, Orlando’s not saying much. But The Biebs is doing what he can to keep it fresh, posting this picture of Orlando to Instagram. No caption, but suggesting he’s a crybaby.
 
To keep things in perspective, this is the shot Justin posted to Instagram just before that, showing him hopping onto a plane, obviously on his way to record “Pants on the Ground.”

Not a Good Day to be Wearing White Slacks

Two folks traveling on a highway in the Boston area had the (fill in the blank) scared out of them yesterday morning when an unsecured ax flew off the landscaping track they were riding behind and smashed through their windshield.

Luckily, the ax didn’t go all the way through and the head sort of stuck on the dashboard – directly in front of the passenger’s face.

The truck’s driver was fined $200 for not completely securing his load.

They should also make him pay for new pants for both the motorist and the passenger.

You Could Have at Least Given Them Some Lobster

A three-hour whale watch tour off the coast of Massachusetts turned into an overnight ordeal for 157 passengers the other night.

The whale-watching boat failed to spot some lobster traps about 16 miles out, and got caught up in their lines.

It took until morning to free the boat. The Coast Guard had two ships stationed near the marooned vessel, providing food, water and blankets to the passengers, so except for being at sea a lot longer than they expected, everything ended up okay.

But here’s a lesson for you: whenever something’s labelled a “three-hour tour” and it involves the ocean, you might invoke the Gilligan Rule and stay on dry land.

Somebody Got Beef With Beyonce


Wow. What do we have here? Beyonce is a hate magnet. The super star singer can’t seem to get a break these days and apparently Kerry Washington is the latest culprit. Now, this is definitely not from the “horse’s mouth,” but a source at Dish Nation says that Kerry is mad at B for staying with Jay. Peep the un-scientifcal data:

Emmy nominated TV star Kerry Washington has privately ripped the singer for not doing enough to empower young African American girls.
The 37-year-old star of the hit ABC show, who’s a political activist and outspoken feminist, “hates how Beyonce relies on her body and sexual innuendo to sell records,” an insider told Dish Nation.

“Kerry thinks Beyonce should spend less time shaking her booty and more time pushing other agendas, like the value of education and healthy eating, as well as promoting book reading.”

“To Kerry, it seems like Beyonce is sending a message to young women that standing by your man, even if he cheats on you, is perfectly acceptable. While Kerry’s peers, like Beyonce, exploit themselves for career advancement, she’s happy to keep her private life under wraps and let her talent do the talking. Kerry wishes Beyonce would do the same.”

Mike Tyson: Jamie Foxx Will Play Me In My Biopic

Jamie Foxx and Mike Tyson are soon to be linked together forever. During a recent interview, Mike Tyson revealed that Foxx and himself are in discussions for Foxx to portray the former heavyweight champion in an upcoming biopic.

Tyson reveals that “within a year to 18 months” an as-of-yet untitled biopic of his life will begin production with Foxx as the lead actor. According to Tyson, Foxx will portray him through multiple stages of his life with the aid of the same technology that transformed Brad Pitt in 2009’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:

Within a year to 18 months, we’re going to do the Mike Tyson story and he’s going to portray me, and now they have this new animation; because you know Jamie’s pretty much my age so he can’t portray me but they have this new system.

In May, Foxx appeared on Live With Kelly and Michael discussing his interest to play Tyson. According to Foxx, he actually dressed up as Tyson and spent time with the controversial ex-boxer before the two ever agreed to do the film:

I got a chance to hang out with Mike when Mike was at his height and I watched [him] go from his height to where he is now, and I talked to him about doing his story. I think that story would be fantastic … and I had my makeup artist dress me up as Mike Tyson … People were literally coming up asking for autographs. So hopefully, Mike, if you’re listening, let’s make history.

Tyson says that Martin Scorsece will be involved in the film.
