What’s on at Flavorpill: Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office

Today at Flavorpill, we were excited to learn that Elizabeth Banks will be playing Alec Baldwin’s love interest on 30 Rock — but does she really have to channel Sean Hannity? We discovered that Tom Cruise was the original voice of Captain Planet. We wondered why anyone would be curious enough to drop $1B on a CD-Rom for Windows 98. We wanted to join a complaints choir. With news of Elvis Costello and Neko Case joining its cast, we were more intrigued than ever by the Stephen King/John Mellencamp musical. We heard more from Dave Longstreth’s old “boy band.” We vowed never to watch the Jersey Shore porn parody, Jersey Whores. Not even for research purposes. Not even if Michael Cera cameos. And finally, we were amazed that Nic Cage can play anyone — even Sarah Palin.
