Weeds fans can get a tiny Nancy Botwin fix in R.I.P.D., in which Mary-Louise Parker plays a foxy police chief of the afterlife. But whither her on-screen son, Hunter Parrish, who once taught us the true meaning of the word “cougar”? He was rumored to be up for Peeta in the Hunger Games — along with a dozen other popular roles we’ve fantasy cast since Weeds ended last year.
Parker seemed just as eager for Hunter to do big things as we are. She had just spoken to him two days before she sat down with VH1.
Here are VH1, we have a bit of a fascination with Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling. Both actors have films opening this weekend (R.I.P.D. and Only God Forgives, respectively) so we asked them who would win in a face-off. Of course, Jeff Bridges, who was hanging out with Reynolds during the interview, jumps in and offers his thoughts as well.
Ryan Reynolds is a man if many talents onscreen: How else could he go from Van Wilder to Buried, Fifteen to The Proposal. But when we saw the beautiful photography book his R.I.P.D. co-star Jeff Bridges made on the set of the weird afterlife buddy cop flick, we wondered, does Ryan also have some kind of side career waiting in the wings?
“I love to write, but I don’t publish, he told VH1 earlier this week. “I write some memoir stuff that’s not necessarily true. It’s expanded versions of kernels of truth that happened when I was young. I have three older brothers, and each one of them is uniquely bizarre in their own way. They’re a wellspring of great stories.”
Hey, this seems like something more than a little hobby. Look out, David Sedaris.
“It sounds like there’s a script there, man,” Bridges commented.
Ooh, and if he added some “expanded” versions of stories about his love life, we’d definitely be hooked!
