1. During last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama decided to top that awkward salmon joke from last year with a bit about spilled milk that was just as groan-worthy; as to be expected, political observers’ immediate response to the cringe-inducing moment on Twitter wasn’t exactly kind.

There have been casting rumors swirling around Pride and Prejudice and Zombies since the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s mashup parody of the Jane Austen classic was first announced, but this has to be the strangest one yet: Twitch is reporting that Blake Lively has been offered the lead role of Elizabeth Bennet… Read More

As we’ve all heard, the folks over at HBO have closed a deal to turn Jennifer Egan’s recent Pulitzer prize-winning novel A Visit From the Goon Squad into an HBO series. No word on what exactly that will mean yet, however – the book spans so many generations and expands in so many directions that they’re going to have a tough time pinning it down to just a series. Or maybe they won’t – that’s the magic of television. After all, Egan has mentioned that she thought about The Sopranos while writing the book, so maybe there’s hope yet. As long as they figure out how to show that Power Point chapter. Regardless, the whole thing has got us thinking about the actors we’d pick to play our beloved characters from Egan’s masterpiece, but since the book spans so many characters at different points in their lives, we thought we’d just pick one of our favorite sections — the safari chapter — and cast that one. If you haven’t read the novel yet and want to play along at home, this chapter is actually available online — it was also published as a standalone short story in The New Yorker. Yep, it’s that good. Click though to see who we’d pick to play some of our favorite characters from A Visit From the Goon Squad, and let us know your own picks in the comments! … Read More
Sex and the City is dead, and Michael Patrick King killed it, with the awfulness that was Sex and the City 2. No matter. King is still planning to resurrect its stinking corpse for The Carrie Diaries, a prequel that tracks our over-analytical heroine from high school in the ’80s through her early days in New York. And now, there’s a rumor spreading that Blake Lively will play the young Carrie. Although we don’t dislike Lively as much as most people seem to, we think that if this project really is happening, she would be an awful choice for Carrie. So the news that her people are denying she’s been cast gives us hope. After the jump, we cast the prequel, based on the potentially misguided belief that the young Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte will also be making appearances. … Read More
