Mama June compares herself to Kim Kardashian, MLS moves to protect gay players, the Zac/Seth shirtless ratio in The Neighbors
Which Captain America costar said “[I rode] Sebastian Stan like a mechanical bull?
Everyone hates their cable bill. Mine for Internet, cable, and alarm was $194 last month, and I don’t have any premiums. But what makes it that high? Probably channels that you don’t watch, like ESPN, which clocks in at $5.54 of your bill each month, though the next closest is TNT at $1.33. Yet I don’t watch sports. I have no idea what channel ESPN is on, and yet I can’t opt out of the sports package.
Reno 911!’s Thomas Lennon has been cast as the neat freak Felix in Matthew Perry’s remake of The Odd Couple. Felix always read gay of course, and Lennon has a tendency to play characters that way, so I do worry about what we’re getting into.
Tina Fey says that despite the rumors circulating, there will be no Mean Girls reunion.
A new study by the former Surgeon General and a retired general says that there is no medical reason for transgender people not to serve in the U.S. military. There are currently no plans to change the current policy, however.
Here are some NSFW pictures of Olympic sailors Onán Barreiros and Juan Curbel making good on their promise to sail naked around the Canary Islands if they got 1,500 Facebook likes.
Dexter Fletcher has bailed on directing the Freddie Mercury biopic, citing creative differences. Ben Wishaw is still attached to play Freddie, and there’s hope of landing a new director and keeping the production on schedule. This is the second major departure of the film after Sacha Baron Cohen dropped out, and both times the need to make it R-rated was cited as a reason. I’m fairly certain any biopic about Freddie Mercury needs to be R-rated.
SyFy has finally found a spaceship to care about, and has greenlit Ascension, a space opera about an ark ship. They’re also going to reduce their slate of original movies each year and focus more on series and miniseries.
I’m not much for watching Honey Boo Boo, but I will love Mama June forever for saying this. “Me and Kim [Kardashian] are similar, uh, because we have kids out of wedlock. We both got big asses, but Kim ain’t got sh*t on this, baby.”
As If is a new documentary by Charlie Lynn that takes a look at teen movies over the years. It grew out of Lynn being asked to program a teen movie film festival, and he realized the tropes involved. The whole interview is worth a read, but he specifically called out the homoeroticism that shows up. He specifically calls out EuroTrip, “I was amazed at what was going on in the film unbeknownst to the film. While it’s supposedly about teens taking a trip through Europe to chase a girl, it is also about a guy’s desperate grasping for a sense of identity. He goes around the world trying to meet with his heterosexual love interest, but what he does is enact wildly homoerotic scenes. And that is never mentioned. It never would have occurred to me as a teenager.”
Major League Soccer is launching a new Player Code of Conduct and new rules for reporting harassment in an effort to protect current and future gay players. “We are committed to providing a safe environment where everyone is treated equally, and with dignity and respect.”
Queen Elizabeth II has formally given Royal Assent to the Scottish marriage equality act, meaning it can become law later this year. This is great news, other than the likelihood of bagpipe music at gay weddings. On the other hand, kilts!
Seth Rogen and Zac Efron have been promoting The Neighbors at SXSW all week, and they sat down with MTV to talk about all the shirtlessness in the film. Seth notes that sadly he’s shirtless as much as Zac is, which is way off (and how much is Dave Franco shirtless?). Zac recalls shooting an early scene that had him as one of the shirtless models outside A&F, and how real people kept wanting to come into the store.
Speaking of The Neighbors, here’s the scene where the frat throws a De Niro party, but can’t quite seem to hone in on which films De Niro has been a part of.
Macklemore guest judges on Under the Gunn this week, and as Tim had promised, he actually knows his fashion, and is on point with the other judges concerning the dresses he’s shown, including the one that was designed by someone who had obviously never seen a woman sitting down, or walking up stairs.
The trailer for Dr. Proctor’s Fart Powder will require you to deal with subtitles, but it’s completely worth it for two minutes of fart jokes told from the perspective of children. Some sites have compared it to The Rocketeer but with farts.
And now, because it’s Friday, and you’ve had a long week, please enjoy this video of a bulldog rolling down a hill.
