Tom Hanks has just landed himself in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the Actor With The Most Consecutive $100 Million Grossing Movies Apparently, Hanks has appeared in 14 movies with a domestic gross of over $100 million, seven of which were consecutive. Sure it’s an honor for the multi-award winning actor. But more than that, it’s another record David Blaine can’t break.
Wanna roll with the President of the United States? It’s easier than it might sound. Official White House Documents explicitly detailing President Bush’s traveling schedules, itineraries and staff were found discarded in the trash, unshredded, by a sanitation worker who also happens to be an ex-con. After digging a little deeper in the President’s trash, the garbage man (again, who used to be in prison) also found empty bottles of Diet Dr. Pepper Berries and Cream Soda, an old copy of FHM, photos proving the government was behind 9/11, and the suitcase that holds “the button” to authorize global nuclear warfare.
National Security is everything, folks!
- Britney may be planning a surprise divorce from Kevin. But first she has to fly in all his friends and family so he’ll really be surprised.
- Andy Roddick posts his first blog entry. The first time is always awkward.
- John Travolta demands silence in his hotel lobby. For the devout scientologist, entering a hotel is even more traumatizing then exiting the birth canal.
- Lindsay Lohan’s mom Dina is sued by music producers over songs they recorded with Lindsay. But the real victims are the people who had to listen to the songs.
- Top Model contestant has a fight with a TV guide interviewer. Nothing they can’t work out on the Tyra Banks show.
- A pimp calls Charlie Sheen a depraved lunatic. In his defense, Heidi Fleiss thinks he’s a gentleman.
The Smoking Gun has the contract riders of your favorite actors in vanity bands. There’s Jared Leto’s band 30 Seconds to Mars, who demand tofurky and top shelf water; Dennis Quaid and his band The Sharks, who request the star be booked in hotels under the porno alias “Richard Powers”. But the best is Steven Seagal who’s on tour supporting his record “Mojo Preist”, an album hailed as the year’s best (by BWE panelist Paul Scheer.) In fact his music is so good, he demands a “boom box” in his dressing room, presumably so he can listen to his own blues ballads like Alligator Ass and Show Me Your Ass. We guess when he wants to watch his movies, he has to supply his own beta-max.
Jamie Foxx, Academy Award-winner and self-proclaimed “saviour of R&B”, is insisting that he is not the godfather of Suri Cruise, even though just a few weeks ago he accepted Tom’s offer for the role of “uncle” in the divine comedy known as The Cruise Family. While no one is yet resorting to DNA testing to determine whether or not Foxx is in fact the child’s godfather, you’d think he could have at least waited for like a week after M:I3‘s disappointing box office debut to wash his hands of the child and jump off the sinking Tom-tanic Cruise liner. Foxx sure seemed to love Tom back when the relationship was all fun and flirty, but now that reality sets in and things get a little rocky, Romeo is stealing off like a thief in the night. For shame.

After filming the series finale of his long-running seriesThat 70′s show, Danny Masterson is making plans for his career future. This summer, the TV star is shooting an independent movie in New York and he even has plans to direct. And with the help of executive producer friends Ashton and Wilmer he may even have a shot at creating his own series. But he still has to be strategic, and plan out his path to success very carefully. First thing on the agenda? Attack psychiatrists on behalf of Scientology. Preferably in conversation with Matt Lauer but barring that, on a t-shirt.
One of the hottest trends in Hollywood right now is giving the big-budget blockbuster treatment to what seems like every new video game that comes out. But what about the classics? What about…Pac Man?
Okay, I’m just going to come right out and say it– I don’t watch Lost. I’ve never seen an episode. I KNOW it’s the best show ever and I KNOW that I’d love it if I gave it a chance, but I feel like it’s too late. I missed the boat and I’m just going to have to deal with that. It’s not easy.
That being said, I need help. Scanning through the lineup, I realized that I don’t watch ANYTHING on Wednesday nights. I mean, I’ll probably check out the American Idol results show and I’m sure I’ll end up tuning into My Super Sweet 16 whether I like it or not, but that’s it. I need some guidance. What SHOULD I be watching on Wednesday nights? What are you watching? Vote now!
