Because I haven't in a while (mostly because The Playlist has been down due to their unfortunately-music-themed title), here's a bit of news:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, my love, has joined two movies: One, called 'Premium Rush', about a bike messenger who picks up and envelope and finds himself chased about New York by some dirty cops. The other, a reunion with my other love, Rian Johnson, for his new sci-fi-assassins-time-travel thing, 'Looper'. So much win, I know not where to start squealing.

Empire has The American trailer. George Clooney being serious, etc.

Sam Rockwell joins 'Cowboys & Aliens', so yay! because I didn't even know he was in Iron Man 2 until two days ago. So, y'know, lots of happy Sam Rockwell surprises.

Rutger Hauer is...Hobo With A Shotgun.

Steven Spielberg does WWI for a change. Otherwise, I can't be bothered with the details.

The Clientele covers MIA.

The AV Club has the first two chapters of Chuck Palahniuk's new book, Tell All. So, y'know, eek.

In other news, Elton John was banned from performing in Egypt for being 'a gay', as well as for his stance in equality for women and gays in Egypt, and his remarks about gay ol' Jesus.

Um...Lindsay Lohan is playing Linda Lovelace (not Ada Lovelace, as Zooey Deschanel will be), the Deep Throat porn star who later took an adament stance against porno. She'd better not suck (oh!) in it, because remember, kids, this could've gone to Anna Faris.

Nice, nice day to all.

Wow... is it just me or is the Lindsay Lohan playing a porn star thing all too telling of her continuing path toward being completely washed up? I mean, first it was a stripper in I Know Who Killed Me, and now this?

Maybe, if the movie's good, Lindsay will actually have a chance to shine...she used to have potential...oh who am I kidding.
