Update: Flight of the Conchords' Bobin to Direct the Muppets
January 29, 2010

UPDATE: Heat Vision says that Bobin has indeed chosen the Muppets movie over "Bridesmaids."

Vulture reports that "Flight of the Conchords" co-creator James Bobin is receiving two offers today - one to direct Disney's new Muppets movie, which would start production by late summer, and the other to direct Universal's Bridesmaids, a Judd Apatow comedy co-written by "Saturday Night Live's" Kristen Wiig about two women battling to plan their friend's wedding party.

The script for the new Muppets movie was co-written by Jason Segel and his Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller. Stoller was originally supposed to direct the movie, but he was too busy doing post-production on the Russell Brand spin-off, Get Him to the Greek, as well as preparing to direct a new Zac Efron movie at Warner Bros.

Bobin has also worked as a writer and director on "The 11 O'Clock Show" and "Da Ali G Show."

Casting Clive Owen in a movie is always a step in the right direction.

Production Weekly has twittered that Clive Owen is set to star in the action thriller "Protection." There are no details on the plot, but we're guessing that Owen will have to protect somebody or something or both.

The film will be directed by Patrick Alessandrin, the mastermind behind "District 13: Ultimatum," which if you don't remember, was the sequel to the original movie based on an internet sensation that lasted all of five seconds. The script is by Brandon Noonan who has no credits to his name as yet, though at one point years ago he had a writing deal in place with DreamWorks and a potential project with Neil LaBute that never came together.

Owen's post-"Sin City" action film resume is spotty at best. "The International" and "Shoot 'Em Up" were abysmal and our hopes for this project aren't very high. Owen has the potential to be a pretty slick and cool lead actor for action films, but he has yet to find the right script to do it with. We aren't hopeful that this is one that will turn things around.

In memory....

Cary Grant, circa 1959 ("North By Northwest").

In Memory: Cary Grant 1904-1986

BY ROGER EBERT / December 1, 1986

Everyone knows that Cary Grant was the most charming man in the history of the movies, but charm alone did not make him a star, and indeed he rarely offered only charm in a performance. There was always something underneath, a quiet reserve, a certain coldness, a feeling that he was evaluating his leading ladies even as he romanced them - and that dual nature is what made him so important in so many different kinds of films. He brought comedy to thrillers, danger to romance, and even a certain poignancy to slapstick farce. He always gave us more than we bargained for.

Look, for example, at his famous kissing scene with Ingrid Bergman in Hitchcock's "Notorious" (1946). In the movie, they are in love with each other, but Grant is a U.S. intelligence official trying to convince Bergman to marry Claude Rains, the leader of a postwar Nazi spy ring.Hitchcock's shot begins on a balcony overlooking Rio. Grant begins to kiss Bergman, and as they stay in each other's arms, they move slowly inside, where Grant picks up the telephone and makes a call, still holding her and kissing her, and then he guides them toward the door while she breathlessly makes dinner plans and he smiles rather remotely at her and then leaves, saying "goodbye" with an ironic smile before closing the door.

This is the kind of scene that perfectly captures what was unique about Cary Grant as a movie actor. He had the kind of handsome charm and sex appeal that made him completely convincing as a romantic leading man - but mere seduction never seemed very high on his list of priorities in the movies. He and his characters often had hidden agendas, secrets they were more interested in than love itself.

read the rest here...

thoughts on the premiere...

why why why do characters on 24 still second guess JACK FREAKING BAUER?

if Jack Bauer says "hey i think you have the wrong person" or "hey something is wrong here, so-and-so can't be trusted" or "hey, you have false intel" NEVER EVER DOUBT HIM. give him guns and stuff and let him go put the SMACK DOWN! NOW!


if Jack Bauer says "hey, i know a really swell lemon cake recipe" or "hey, i know of a secret way to make your nail polish last longer without chipping" or "hey, i hear that there is a sale on shoes at Bloomies" THAT'S when you doubt him! THAT'S when you go "Alright boys, cuff him! Lock him up! He craaazy!"

I mean, really.

Rudd and Galifianakis Reunite for Will

Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis, who both star in Paramount's upcoming Dinner for Schmucks, will reteam for the studio's comedy Will.

Little Miss Sunshine helmers Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are directing, with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez on board to produce.

The story follows an ordinary guy (Rudd) who lives in a world where people's lives and destinies are being written by writers in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer (Galifianakis) has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted, ending up on a journey to fulfill his hidden potential.

well said Conan


People of Earth:

In the last few days, I've been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I
want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second
feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I've been getting paid to do what I
love most and, in a world with real problems, I've been absurdly lucky.
That said, I've been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my
bosses are demanding an immediate decision.

Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight
Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson
every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant
everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed
up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally
hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the
future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would
have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of
ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting
audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.

But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months,
with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their
terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their
long-established late night schedule.

Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight
Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years
the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I
sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to
accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider
to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight
Show at 12:05 simply isn't the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move
I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David
Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot.
That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be
unfair to Jimmy.

So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy
hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is
for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably
hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The
Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its
destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the
Internet a time slot doesn't matter. But with the Tonight Show, I
believe nothing could matter more.

There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set
the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have
no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this
quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of,
for a company that values our work.

Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair;
it's always been that way.

no exaggeration: Zachary Levi is the most attractive celebrity i've ever seen in real life. when he came to reelz channel and i was a few feet away from him i was like one of those assholes who wait at the movie premieres to look at edward or bella or jacob from 50 yards away. i mean, i didn't scream or cry or anything. but i kind of wanted to. and i certainly couldn't breath properly.
it's like him and clive owen for me. tied. wait. no. clive is still number 1.
ZL is actually too good looking, which kind of guarantees that he's a dick right? (it makes me feel better to think this)

but what is happening here?

is that a chick's peacoat? i'm pretty sure that is the same jacket i have from j. crew.
i guess it doesn't matter. but it's weird right?

meanwhile, i'm super annoyed at myself for not watching Chuck. even if it's not good staring at that face for 42 minutes a week can't do anything but good right?

Thom Yorke, Philip Glass and Damien Rice team up for Tibet Documentary

After lending his talents (probably in exchange for a decent amount of cash) to the "New Moon" soundtrack, Thom Yorke is ready to earn back some cred by teaming up with Irish singer/songwriter Damien Rice and modern composer Philip Glass to write the music for the forthcoming documentary "When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun."

The Dirk Simon directed film will “show, for the first time, an inside perspective on the Tibetan movement to free Tibet from Chinese occupation, its internal conflicts and contradictions.” Among the participants are Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama and other prominent artists and figures in the Tibetan freedom movement.

There is a trailer already up at the film's website and the picture has already started doing festival and competition rounds. It recently picked up Best Soundtrack from the Maverick Movie Awards, and is set to play the Santa Barbara Film Festival in February. No word yet on an official release date (it will need to find a distributor first) or if we'll see an official soundtrack release, but given the heavyweights involved, it's only a matter of time.
