What would you say seems like the greater cinematic feat in the new X-Men: First Class TV trailers: the CGI needed for Jennifer Lawrence to morph into blue-scaled mutant Mystique, or the editing need to make January Jones look like she might not be reading off a cue-card while her character Emma Frost threatens the safety of humanity? Oh yes, we went there! What are you going to do, blow us up with your chest laser like Lucas Till‘s Havok?* Either way, there is plenty of movie magic to be found in the film, opening June 3; Michael Fassbender‘s seriously creepy magnetic powers and Kevin Bacon‘s luxuriant hair piece are but one small part of an awesome look whole.

As temperatures rise and blockbusters flood the movie theaters, prepare to swim in celebs who became household names via the boob tube. While some have since established themselves as movie stars, we grew to love them on a weekly basis from our couches.
A brunette version of Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively will play leading lady opposite Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern. Mad Men‘s January Jones will trade her 60s housewife getup for a shimmery push-up bra for her role as Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class. Ever the uptight but lovable nerd, The Office‘s Ed Helms will reprise his role in The Wolfpack in The Hangover: Part II. This summer’s token fluffy comedy Monte Carlo features plenty of TV’s hottest stars such as Glee‘s Cory Monteith, GG‘s Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, and Wizards of Waverly Place‘s Selena Gomez.
Before the heat and humidity makes us all flee to the movie theaters for relief, check out what TV stars to keep an eye out for in this summer’s biggest flicks.
Oh, how we love an extremely random famous person beef (remember the great Jeremy Piven/ Chris Kattan kerfuffle of 2009? Those were the days), and a Zach Galifiankis January Jones feud would really hit the spot right about now. While promoting his upcoming film The Hangover Part II to TheShortList.com, Zach had one specific memory about Mad Men star he just hasn’t been able to shake, despite reports that Jones found him to be “the most naturally funny man she’s ever met.” Laughed Galifianakis, “ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s really funny because, if I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party Ã¢â‚¬â€ IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d never met her Ã¢â‚¬â€ and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybodyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to forget about you in a few years, so f–king be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s funny?” Ba-zing! Man, we can’t want to see who’s next in the bizarre celebrity cage match: Bradley Cooper and Gary Busey? Ed Helms and Nicki Minaj? That little Hangover Part II monkey and, let’s go with, Chris Kattan?
We’re always amazed at how celebrities can conceal their baby bumps until the exact second they announce their pregnancies. Then bam! Instant belly. Those gigantic purses do more than just to hold their stacks of hundreds. Less than a week after announcing her pregnancy, January Jones‘ baby bump made an appearance among the many, many celebrities at the Lakers game on Monday. While the identity of January Jones’ baby daddy remains a mystery for now, it’s pretty clear the Mad Men star and her off-spring are going to have a hard time avoiding public scrutiny. Though if you have to lose your privacy when you become a celebrity, you might as well get floor seats out of the deal.
Unfortunately the Dallas Mavericks beat the L.A Lakers, but the very close game was witnessed by a number of stars who watched intently at Staples Center. Of them, we’ve already brought up birthday boy David Beckham celebrating with Gordon Ramsey. Seal was also there, along with his adorable daughter Leni, and was seen taking photographs of the on court action. We were also stoked to see a pregnant January Jones arrive at the game with her pal Jennifer Carpenter. Throw in Justin Timberlake, Joe Jonas, Eddie Murphy, Ricky Martin and Chord Overstreet and you have one seriously celebrity-heavy game! Check out the photographs from our gallery below.

When one of the hottest bachelorettes working in television today such as January Jones announces she’s pregnant, it takes discretion and a great P.R. person to throw the off switch on the rumor mill. Could someone get Jason Sudeikis either of those things? Possibly both? When talking to the Washington Post this weekend, Jason Sudeikis dodged January Jones’ pregnancy questions with all the tact and self-awareness of a deer frozen in the headlights of a speeding semi. When asked if he had any comments, the SNL star said, “I’d rather — yes but no.” When questioned if he was surprised that Jones was pregnant, Sudeikis replied, “No, I…No, I didn’t have anything [else to say].” If comedy doesn’t work out Jason could always switch to poker, seeing as how he is unreadable.
Despite Jones’ reticence at naming the father of her baby, given that Sudekis dated Jones last summer, it seems unlikely the MTV Movie Awards host and star of the upcoming A Good Old Fashioned Orgy would have that much at stake when it comes to the answer. Then again, Jason’s probably going to wish he’d prepared some full-sentence responses when January starts calling his house in a furious rage.
January Jones is pregnant and won’t spill the beans on who the father is! This isn’t some rumor flying around either, because her spokesperson has confirmed the news, revealing, “January Jones is happy to announce that she is expecting her first child this fall.” Another source has indicated that Jan-Jan is going to raise the child on her own, saying she is “really looking forward to this new chapter in her life as a single mom.” Congratulations are in order! Wish we knew who else to congratulate, but that’s the most anyone is saying, unfortunately. January’s going to look adorable with a baby-bump and probably already has an enviable maternity wardrobe! But can someone please tell us what’s going to happen to Betty Draper? Mad Men writers will probably have to do something about this!
See, this is what what happens when every single character in your movie is young and good-looking: unavoidable sexual tension. So maybe a select few have gigantic insect wings or blue scales or some kind of gross animal claw sprouting out of their body. It (probably) wouldn’t stop us in real life; it’s certainly not going to stop us on screen. In addition to the sexiness inherent in fighting for justice, the new X-Men: First Class theatrical trailer features a topless Zoe Kravtiz, a near kiss between Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique and Nicolas Hoult‘s Beast, and, of course, January Jones‘ ice cleavage. In retrospect, we probably won’t miss Chelsea Grammar‘s take on Hank McCoy as much as we screamed we would when the new film was announced. Even setting movie during the Cuban missile crisis itself is pretty sexy. In fact, seeing Michael Fassbenger‘s Magneto lift up an submarine with his mind is almost as exciting as the promise of some hot mutant-on-mutant action. Almost.
You can probably understand why a woman as stunning as January Jones can’t commit, at least not to her last boyfriend Jason Sudeikis. Which is why the Mad Men actress has come up with the perfect solution to her dating woes: propose to herself. “I think it’s tough to date in general,” January sighed in an interview with Extra!. “But maybe only because I live such a transient lifestyle. Never in one place for too long. Plus, I can’t commit… I don’t have a type, I’m all over the place. It’s me.” Jones quipped, “I’m like Queen Elizabeth. I’m going to marry myself.” We…we can do that? Take that, Mom; now we definitely won’t die a spinster!
While January books a caterer and picks out bridesmaids dresses for her self-wedding, in the meantime she keep on showering with Liam Neeson in her new thriller Unknown. “What you didn’t see was Aiden Quinn was also in the shower with us…they would switch him out. It was very awkward,” Jones laughs. “They were buddies so they were sort of high-fiving each other…that’s the most nude I’ve been in a film.” As long as it’s only for the movie, we guess January can’t get mad at herself for cheating. Girl better put a ring on it soon though, or January is going to find someone who really appreciates her. For example, any other person on the planet.
Mad Men‘s January Jones hasn’t crossed over into movie stardom yet, but judging from her edgy red carpet look at the Unknown premiere in LA, she’s ready to put in the work. The actress sported a dramatic Alexander McQueen concoction, with an equally dramatic haircut completing a look more couture than you’d expect from someone promoting a Liam Neeson thriller. Also exceptionally stylish was co-star Diane Kruger in a short, white number from D&G. Way to make Liam look underdressed, guys!
