When news broke that George Clooney‘s Hope for Haiti Now telethon would airing Friday at 8PM EST on VH1, MTV and just about every channel on your television set, scant details were available as to which celebs would be involved in the show. But that didn’t stop us from starting our Official Hope For Haiti NowTelethon Lineup guessing game. We’re happy to report that our initial list is shaping up to be remarkably accurate (Anderson Cooper‘s involvement doesn’t count because he’s a newsman who sometimes acts like a celebrity, not an actual celebrity).
As for Robert Pattinson, he’ll be hosting the London segment of Hope for Haiti Now. Clooney and pals will be based at the show’s headquarters in Los Angeles while Anderson Cooper reports from Ground Zero in Haiti. Performances will take place in L.A., New York and London.
With a Critics’ Choice lineup that includes Adam Lambert and Sarah Silverman, we had a hunch that this year’s show would feel a bit younger and maybe a bit sexier. Now it’s official! We just got our hands exclusively on a skit that will air as part of the show. The clip contains CCMA host Kristin Chenoweth making a bloody mess of herself while auditioning to play Bella in New Moon. We’re sure these skits will provide comic relief between thoughtful acceptance speeches made by A-list actors.
Wow, Taylor Lautner really is seventeen. The Twilight star reportedly has a plan to win back former girlfriend Taylor Swift. “He plans to overwhelm Taylor with four dozen red roses, a diamond friendship ring and a romantic dinner date when they’re both in Los Angeles” to promote their upcoming film Valentine’s Day, says some squealer to the Enquirer. “Lautner isn’t accepting her rejection. The way he sees it, this is nothing more than a minor setback in an enduring love affair.” Seriously—dude’s seventeen.
While their reported problems—he’s a health food nut, she wants to “focus on career”—seem more than surmountable, there’s no way this plan is going to work if a) it’s already being reported in the Enquirer and b) not a figment of the tab’s imagination. Let’s just hope Lautner doesn’t bring those roses out on the red carpet. Remember when Lisa Simpson shot down Ralph Wiggum on TV?
Greene explained the artistic process she underwent to prepare for the shoot, saying “It took the artist 12 hours to paint the SoBe scales on each skinsuit. But it was totally worth it. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.” It’s probably an experience most 12-to-22-year-old boys sitting at their computer won’t forget either. For a complete look at the seductively boob-heavy photo gallery, check out the SoBe site.
The New Year is upon us, and while resolutions and wishes are abound, we’re wondering what’s brewing in the world of cinema. Anticipation is already sky-high for the third film of The Twilight Saga and the first half of the final film of the Harry Potter series, but what else is waiting in the wings? We’ve got Angelina Jolie in a wig, Megan Fox in a corset, and an uber buff Jake Gyllenhaal.
Here are 10 movies worth your $12.50 + popcorn in 2010.
The Wolfman: February 12th
Benicio Del Toro has been holding out on us! Typically attracted to critic-friendly films (Traffic, Things We Lost in the Fire, Che), Del Toro gets horrific for Valentine’s Day weekend in The Wolfman,starring as the legendary moon-hatin’ monster. Critics’ Choice-nominatedEmily Blunt plays his fur-lovin’ love interest and always-great Anthony Hopkins co-stars as Del Toro’s father.
Alice in Wonderland: March 5th
Tim Burton + Johnny Depp. Do we really need to say more? Previous collaborations of the eccentric duo include Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. This fantastical gothic version of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale is sure to be visually stunning and over-the-top. Naturally Johnny Depp is The Mad Hatter, while Australian actress Mia Wasikowska snagged the role as Alice. Burton’s wife Helena Bonham Carter plays the part of The Red Queen with Anne Hathaway as The White Queen. Other highlights include Alan Rickman as The Caterpillar and Michael Sheen as The White Rabbit. Can you feel our excitement?
RPattz fans, rejoice! The sulky-looking Twilight hunk will not age too badly, at least according to Joe Mullins, a forensic artist who used computer technology to predict what celebs will look like after another decade. If he’s willing to trim his wayward eyebrows, Robert Pattinson may still be capable of landing roles that require some sex appeal. Do you think Robert looks like a heartthrob in this rendering? Check the gallery to see what more actors might look like in 2020, including Kristen Stewart.
“Hey! Yoohoo! Over here! Yes, it’s me, Ashley Greene, star of the Twilight movie, and, well, that other Twilight movie! Yes, I know you’d rather be staring at Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewartright now, but they’re off in a bunker somewhere reading indie scripts and making out with each other in a pile of their own hair grease. But I’m here! Two years ago I was a coat-check girl, and now I’m strolling the red carpet at the Sherlock Holmes premiere, hunting down Jude Law to try to get in on that sweet baby-daddy action. Just kidding, guys! Kind of. Anyhoodles, I know this amorphous white sack doesn’t show off my curves, but my stylist told me that’s what fashion is all about. And check out these lips, mo-fos! They’re pink! Hot pink! Looklooklooklooklooklooklook! Mememememememe! I’m famous! I’m unforgettable! I’m destined for a career of Lifetime movies alongside Tori Spelling! Wait, did I just say that?“
Finally we get to see Kristen Stewart‘s mullet in action! The first Runaways teaser trailer is out, but it doesn’t give too much about the film away, other than it being a film about 70′s girl power, rock n’ roll and Dakota Fanning looking insanely sexy in a feathered wig. (Yes, we feel uncomfortable typing that.)
Perhaps the most interesting part of the clip is not what we see, but we we hear: Kristen Stewart belting out “Cherry Bomb,” the badass chick anthem which we’re eager to see make a comeback on the charts a la “Bohemian Rhapsody” via the Wayne’s World soundtrack back in the 90s.
