Oh it's on! Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been confirmed to be in the next installment of the Batman saga currently titled "The Dark Knight Rises". Which character he will play has yet to be released but if I know my Batman trivia, which I think I do, I assume he'll be playing the role of King Tut. Google it, trust me it's funny.
Jodi Foster will step behind the camera for a new sci-fi flick that she's developing. No real details on the movie but apparently it'll have a nice warm family feel to it. So maybe something like "ET 2". The world demands it!
"The Seventh Son" has added Julianne Moore to its cast list which already includes Jeff Bridges. Moore will play the most bad ass of all witches who uses blood magic, whatever the hell that is. This is funny because I've always assumed Julianne Moore was a witch in real life because she looks exactly the same as she did 20 years ago. In days of old she would have been burned at the stake for being in her 50's and still being pretty hot.
Everyone and their mother has joined the cast of "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D" including Derek Mears who you might remember as Jason from the "Friday the 13th" remake. Fans of the "MacGruber" movie may also recognize him as "Large Henchman" which I believe got him an Oscar nomination.

I'm pretty sure you need to get your parent's permission when you're 14 years old and want to get a tattoo. Even if you are paying for it with sex like this girl in Pennsylvania did. The 34 year old tattoo artist is now being brought up on charges and I assume he'll try to say he thought she was over 18. For his sake I hope it wasn't a Bieber tattoo.
I don't want to get your hopes up but I think Heath Ledger may be alive. Or at least it looks like he may make an appearance in the next Batman film via unreleased footage from the last movie. But let's go with Zombie Ledger, it sounds cooler. What, too soon?
All the world has Monica Keena fever right now. I mean did you see "Night of the Demons"? Action! And now she's been cast as a cult member in "Manson Girls" along with Laura Harring, Patti D'Arbanville, Estella Warren and Stella Maeve. Who's excited now? I don't even know what it's like to not be sarcastic anymore. Please help me.
Why the hell are people still talking to Joss Whedon about the freakin' "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" remake? I don't know folks but apparently now he is saying that he was offered to be a part of the film and passed. I can't wait to see what comes out next week so I can put it in the news and complain about it.
Here's the cast and a promo video for the new Syfy series "Being Human" which is the first thing I've seen on that channel that didn't feature a giant something or other. Unless you count Sam Huntington's forehead. I mean am I right? Anyway the show is about a ghost, a vampire, and a werewolf all living together and trying to cope. With sexy results!

Finally someone is honest about why they jump down to save people who fall on the subway tracks! A NY man admits to leaping down to save a man who passed out because he knew that if the guy got hit it would delay the trains for hours and he wouldn't make it to work on Sunday, which is time and a half.
Wait seriously, this worked? A man in Missouri has been acquitted of a DWI charge after he claimed to have gotten drunk to keep warm after his car lost control on an icy road. This is actually the same reason I need to get hammered to make the ten minute walk from my bus stop to my house. I could freeze to death without the sweet sweet warmth of booze.
So last night I learned two things. First I learned that "The Dark night" was nominated for 11 Saturn Awards this year. And second, that apparently for the past 35 years the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films have held something called The Saturn Awards, which honor the past years film, TV and DVD releases.
