When Kevin Smith reported that the Weinsteins had said nay to financing his proposed budget of $6 million for Clerks 3 earlier this year, it seemed that a resurrection of the cult film had been officially canned. Fortunately for Smith fans, the box office bombing of his last effort Tusk had a nice silver lining that’ll be sure to put the indecency back in filmmaking, the porn spread back in our faces, the smell of shoe polish back in our noses.. the cigarettes back in the hands of 4 year old girls… ok, you get the point.
Here are the words straight from Silent Bob’s mouth:
TUSK was the absolute bridge to CLERKS III. Because of TUSK I got my financing for CLERKS III. And honestly, that wouldn’t have happened without Tusk. A year and change ago I was desperately trying to get CLERKS III made for the 20th anniversary and that desperation, I must have reeked of it because I couldn’t f*cking find money and shit. But it was Tusk, people going ‘Holy f*ck, what else do you have?’ and I was like ‘Clerks III‘ and they’re like ‘done’. So, everybody that’s like, ‘he failed, he failed’, I’m like ‘thank you, I failed into CLERKS III.”
Neal Moritz, the producer of I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997 is planning on rebooting this horror classic movie. The the box office showed how successful the movie was that they soon released the sequels: I Still Know What You Did Last Summer in 1998 and I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer in 2006.
The most exciting part is that two of the original casts, Jennifer Love-Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar, will return to produce the reboot project.
It may come as a bit of a surprise to some people, but Carly Rae Jepsen, who burst onto the music scene with her hit Call Me Maybe, isn’t a teenager. In fact the singer is 27 years old. Despite her age, Jepsen has been accused in recent times of trying to appear younger than she actually is.
The argument against her isn’t a surprising one, so everyone from binguez enthusiasts to the chef on the corner were probably expecting it. Call Me Maybe does upon first listen, sound like a song which would be sung by the likes of Selena Gomez or any other Disney starlet turned singer. And sometimes the outfits Jepsen wears on stage, could be construed as the kind someone ten years younger than herself would wear.
However the Canadian insists that she’s “stoked” people assume she’s younger. Although she certainly doesn’t feel like a youngster. “I turned 27 in November, and when I look in the mirror, I see all of the years attached to that face, and I’m content with me.”
And when it comes to her own life, well, lets just say the teenage outfits don’t make an appearance at home.
“I love being classy and as elegant as possible in my apartment. But when I’m on stage, I can’t dance in 4-inch heels, so I’ll generally sport flats. I’m 5-foot-2, so yeah, I’m going to look a little bit more playful. But I don’t think that means I’m trying for an age younger than I am.”
Is it fair to criticise the singer for taking advantage of her youthful looks? And what’s more, what do people expect her to dress like? She’s at the age where she can still get away with dressing younger, and considering the majority of her peers use sexy outfits to sell albums, can’t we call her a breath of fresh air and be done with it? Her style will mature as she gets older. Give her a chance.
As far as highly entertaining, modern and edgy shows go, FX is a great network. It’s who has brought us The Shield, Nip/Tuck, Damages, Rescue Me, Sons of Anarchy, Justified, American Horror Story, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Louie, and more. But after seeing yet another terrible, terrible interview with Charlie Sheen on the Today show, it’s a big wonder how FX was talked into creating a TV show for him.
51-year-old actor Doug Anthony Hutchison, known for roles such as “Tooms” in The X-Files series, as a prison guard in “The Green Mile” and most recently as “Horace” in LOST, announced on his website this weekend that he has married 16-year-old aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden.
It’s pretty simple: you go up there, you crack a few jokes and you introduce the awards presenters, but no… Hosts of awards ceremonies always find a way of making really uncomfortable jokes while they’re in the spotlight, and if you’re an elephant in the room, you will be spotlighted — it’s an old trend that’s become mainstream and dubbed a “Roast”, a (hopefully) good-humored spiting of the guest of honor (or guests). But roasts can go overboard as this one has in some people’s eyes, such as Robert Downy, Jr. as quotes as saying, “it was mean,”.
Interestingly enough, Gervais is also a devout atheist and can be seen gurgling the sentiments of the holy spirit on Inside the Actor’s Studio.
If you’ve ever kissed the concrete in your hospital gown after a three day stint on the dark side of New York’s urban underground party scene, then this latest Schaffer The Darkord video for The Bender, directed by Burke Heffner will most likely dredge up some unfond memories that you never meant to rehash.

Applicants submitted video auditions for The Oprah Show and Kohl’s Your OWN Show contest. Austin TX’s Zach Anner was winning by a landslide with his incredibly funny and surprisingly charismatic video. 25 year old Anner has cerebral palsy, and suggested he host a travel show. Sweeping 4chan, reddit and tumblr, Anner ended up being in the lead and was likely to win the
For an entire week last June, he was winning the contest by more than 300,000 votes. Rumors that the contest winner, Doctor Phyllis, had to cheat to win. This scenario would mean that the source code for the voting mechanism was modified to give more than one vote when clicked. No one from the Oprah Show has commented publicly, and rumors abound on the Internet as to the plausibility of this accusation.
Watch a few of the videos and you can see that Zach Anner deserves a show. Celebrity support form Dennis Quaid and John Mayer might help him out, too. I know I’d watch a show hosted by this oddball guy. So, keep an eye out for Zach Anner.
Here’s the original audition:
Here’s his reaction to the overwhelmingly positive response: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG0_rnkRiM8&feature=related
