He Was Totally Hitting This During Filming by phattyjboy

Not that everyone didn’t know this. Even the guy’s who hold the microphones on those long poles get a piece of Lindsay during taping, so its no wonder that pretty boy Jared Leto could hit this. Even after he gained 57 pounds to play the role of John Lennon’s killer. The movie, Chapter 27, seems like it would actually be good….until you watch the trailer. Not that I haven’t liked Jared in everything (except Panic Room), but itseems a little premature to start saying “Oscar run.” Especially when you have to look good by comparison when your co-star is Lindsay Lohan playing….well, Lindsay Lohan. She always acts like she’s completely lost when guys come onto her in movies, but you know as soon as the cameras are off they have to throw cold water on her and fan her off so that everyone on the set doesn’t get blown.

If it was me, I’d just let it happen. I’d probably pay her a whole lot more money, too, and if the movie bombed, I really wouldn’t care. People only attach her to movies to 1.) get blown during the read through 2.) to cause a PR stir 3.) they’re completely retarded.

By the way, where IS the 30 Seconds to Mar’s cover album of the Beatles for this movie? Did they not even do one cover with Jared in the movie? Dumb.

Now you can CLICK HERE to see the unrated trailer for the film. “Mother Nature just pissed her pants suit.” Actually looks somewhat funny.

More racist after you’ve seen the trailer? Will it really be funny? Send us your thoughts.

How I Met Britney’s British Side by phattyjboy

“How I Met Your Mother” marketing shot

By now everyone knows that Britney Spears is going to do a stint on “How I Met Your Mother.” She will supposedly play an secretary or assistant to someone that Ted’s character on the show is playing. Now we find out that she was supposed to play a secretary to a dermatologist who was supposed to be played by Alicia Silverstone. Ms. Silverstone, not relevant since the 90’s, has backed out because she does not want to be freaked out exposed to crazies overshadowed by Ms. Spears. So now Sarah Chalke of “Scrubs” fame has stepped in for one episode to play the ill-fated dermatologist.

First of all, Sarah Chalke confuses me. She came out waaaay before Katherine Heigl on “Grey’s Anatomy”, but somehow has played a Mad TV-esque spoof on Katherine in Scrubs. And she’s also very hot and bangable in some episodes, but then another day I don’t even want to look at her. Its like that okay-looking chick you banged last weekend and can’t stop having sex with even though she annoys you because no one else wants to touch you right now. You have her come over, slap your shit around, and then can’t wait for her to leave. But then when she doesn’t return your calls, you get all attached and shit.

What, you don’t do that? Whatever.

Neil Patrick Harris

I think this is a brilliant PR move by “How I Met Your Mother”. Britney will be completely atrocious, but everyone will tune in to see the disaster. Kind of like her MTV Awards appearance or the reason a gaper’s block forms on the road – you cannot look away even though you want to puke. In case you wanted to know what Neil Patrick Harris had to say (and it IS kind of funny), you can visit this site for an interview with Entertainment Tonight. He wonders what side of Britney we’ll see on the show and if she has a master plan and is just fooling us. I think Britney thinks that her British accent is just hotter than her southern one. Southern is waaaaaaay better.

Tropic Thunder is Going to Make It Rain (Get it?) by phattyjboy

Ben Stiller talked with Entertainment Weekly about his new spoof movie “Tropic Thunder.” In it, there’s a character named Kirk Lazarus, who is an Oscar-winning actor cast in the most expensive Vietnam War movie ever made. Problem is that he dyes his skin because the character is black.

Who has the balls to play this character, you ask? Robert Downey, Jr. Here’s what he had to say about the role:

”If it’s done right, it could be the type of role you called Peter Sellers to do 35 years ago,” Downey says. ”If you don’t do it right, we’re going to hell.”

Wow. Honestly, after Saturday Night Live, Mad TV, and The Dave Chappelle show, we should be used to stuff like this. Except its not just some dumb skit making fun of a taboo. White man plays a black man. Black man plays a white man. And usually the black people are more dead on as a white person. But we’re talking a major motion picture here. So Entertainment Weekly’s interview continues:

“Downey, meanwhile, is confident he never crossed the line. ‘At the end of the day, it’s always about how well you commit to the character,’ he says. ‘I dove in with both feet. If I didn’t feel it was morally sound, or that it would be easily misinterpreted that I’m just C. Thomas Howell in [Soul Man], I would’ve stayed home.’ (Note: In one scene, he tries to bond with a real African-American castmate by quoting the theme song from The Jeffersons.)

And just in case you were wondering what Stiller and castmate Jack Black do in the movie:

“Stiller plays an action hero who has just adopted a baby from Asia but worries that ‘all the good ones are gone.’ Black portrays a comedian known for performing multiple roles in a single film — his latest is called The Fatties: Fart 2. But when the film’s director (Steve Coogan) and writer (Nick Nolte) get fed up with their prima donna cast, they drop them into the jungle to fend for themselves. The actors think they’re doing some sort of full-immersion filmmaking, but the danger they’re in is very real.”

I’m gonna go ahead and say this movie might not do so well at the box office. Even with box office gold names like Nick Nolte and Jack Black. Robert Downey Jr. sure is throwing himself into some different roles as of late though. He’s playing Iron Man in the upcoming comic book thriller and now this. Iron Man looks somewhat decent but will just play out like Fantastic Four. At least it won’t be as shitty as The Hulk. But “Tropic Thunder”? The trailer comes out on March 17th so I’ll let you decide. And if you’re Irish, you’ll be wasted so get back to me on the 18th.
