A year ago, you might have wished you could spend the day in Brad Pitt’s shoes. Handsome, wildly rich and shacking up with stunning Angelina Jolie, the superstar seemed to have it all. He even scratched his paternal itch by playing pop to Angelina’s adorable, mo-hawked son Maddox. But now with the Jennifer drama, the two more babies, and the exhaustive nomadic lifestyle, being Brad Pitt doesn’t seem like such a good gig. But you know what does? Being Brad Pitt’s Lookalike.
Greek-born Aris Kontos has the same twinkly baby blues and pink smackers as Brad Pitt with half the baggage. You may remember him as the guy who was mistaken for a cheating Brad in Greece(pre-Angelina). Now Kontos turns down movie roles, makes women shriek on the street and brings along a bouncer where ever he goes. And while he’s living the high life as an A-list celebrity, homeboy doesn’t even have to keep a job. So you see, Brad Pitt’s lookalike may live better than the superstar himself. Wish I could say the same for the guy who looks like Jason Alexander. (thanks for the tip ONTD)
If you’ve ever wanted to be sitting in the back of a convertible, flying down a California freeway, listening to Kirk Cameron ramble on about homosexuality and Jesus before confronting a bunch of "the gays" about their sinful nature, today is your lucky day!
Whether you hated to love him or loved to hate him, you’ll hate to miss this sneak preview of BWE‘s fond farewell to Kevin Covais.
Contrary to popular belief, some child stars come out okay. In fact this week, there were three former-celebukids who emerged from puberty victorious.
First there’s beloved Wonder Years child star Fred Savage who announced this week he’s going to be a daddy. We know somewhere Daniel Stern is making an misty-eyed observation on the human condition. Speaking of Savage, Boy Meets World alum Rider Strong is making his TV comeback this Tuesday as a smitten cameraman in Pepper Dennis, the winsome WB drama starring Rebbecca Romaijn as a sexy TV reporter. After watching the trailer, we are proud to say that aside from a pair of brainy glasses, Strong hasn’t changed a bit.
But you know who has? Haley Joel Osment. The former child star, who’s been waiting out puberty in a cave somewhere for the three past years, emerged at an LA Launch party this week and proved to the world that he’s come out on the other side. While he’s no longer eligible to play his signature creepy child prodigy, he’s first in line for the biopic on James Van Der Beek.
When "Bowiechick" made a "video confessional" and added some cool effects, she couldn’t have known that the world would be set afire by her web skills. But that is what happened. As this site says, it’s pretty standard post-breakup stuff, but she added Clark Kent glasses, a gas mask, a cat nose and Beatles glasses, which has generated over 900 comments. and growing, most of them asking "How’d you do that?" And hey, maybe she’s still single, so move fast!
Tom Felton, the young British actor who plays evil wizard nemesis Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films is on MySpace. He lists himself as bi-sexual. And he blogs about his boyfriend. And he only has 73 friends. And he doesn’t make as much money as you’d think.
See, they really are just like us! Add him, why don’t you?
Perhaps you’ve seen the commercial for the WristTec blood-pressure monitor, which is affiliated with the Invention Channel. If so, you might remember that the woman who speaks on behalf of the product is named Pat Murphy-Stark. You would know this because she says, "I’m Pat Murphy-Stark," as if we all know who Pat Murphy-Stark is. I felt bad that I don’t know who Pat Murphy-Stark is (and maybe you don’t know who Pat Murphy-Stark is either), so I headed to the Internet and here is what I found on her website:
This week Forbes predicted the futuristic fashion we’ll be wearing in 10 years. Meanwhile yesterday at LA Fashion Week celebrities were already sporting garb that looked like it’s from another millennium. While Forbes’s futuristic fashion is multi-purpose, celebrity high-fashion fashion serves no purpose at all . After the jump, guess which items are futuristic and which ones were donned by your favorite celebrities at LA Fashion Week circa 2006.
Judging by the looks of this video, Joe Rogan is already hard at work training for his next battle with the Apollo Creed of MySpace known only to us as Kevin. He’s got the touch, indeed:
Also, it seems that Joe already has new challengers lining up for witless battle…
Or is he planning on getting in the ring with some strippers?
