AfterElton Briefs: Alexander Skarsgard Wears Tassles, Al Franken is Awesome, “Happily Divorced” Renews Its Vows, and More!

  • Today’s Birthdays! (Note: Birthday shoutouts are for out entertainers, allies, or for any celeb that seems to have a following on AE). Dame Diana Rigg turns 73, Josh Holloway is 42, and Kim Carnes is 66. Kim is one the most underrated singers ever, and my 3rd all-time favorite! Okay, time to name your top five Kim songs. Here are mine: 5. “Invisible Hands,” 4. “Make No Mistake, He’s Mine (Duet with Barbra Streisand)”, 3. “What About Me? (with Kenny Rogers and James Ingram),” 2. “Divided Hearts,” 1. “Voyeur”.

  • There are not one, but two musical versions of A Clockwork Orange on the way to the stage.
  • Presented without comment.

  • Below you can see Senator Al Franken rip an asshat to shreds. It’s quite a sight.

  • New on DVD: Aussie shark flick The Reef, alleged 80′s tribute Take Me Home Tonight, and Bradley Cooper in Limitless.

  • Speaking of DVD’s, here’s something truly outrageous. An 11 disc box set of the complete Jem & The Holograms will be released on October 11th.

  • Just Jared has pics of Alexander Skarsgard receiving an honorary doctorate degree in the arts from Leeds University. Please avert your eyes from his crotchal area. I don’t know what’s going on there.

And today’s Briefs are brought to you by…
