October 20, 2008 Pt. 2

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Silent Bob isn't staying silent anymore.

Sean Penn: Visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for the second time in two years.  Does a star’s political activities influence whether people pay to see his movies?  We’ll soon find out: his next flick, Milk, comes out in early December.

Brothers & Sisters: After a high-profile search for new character Ryan Walker, the execs have chosen someone with very little credits to his name: Luke Grimes.  We have no idea who he is but a quick Google search shows a 20-something guy with long-ish hair and some stubble.  Is this the next television heartthrob in the making?

Jennifer Hudson: Now that The Secret Life of Bees is in theater, we’ll see if the Idol alum can have 3 great flicks in a row.  And if not, there’s always that music career.

Survivor: Arguably the most successful show of the decade but the flame might extinguish soon.  Ratings are down, the economy sucks and ad execs are being more frugal with their money.  Good times.

Ne-Yo: Plans to star in a “music-driven romance” called Venice Beach.  Can being smooth and infectious in music translate to the big screen?  We’re doubtful.

Kevin Smith: Took to his blog to say how excited he is for Zack and Miri Make a Porno–and that he’s “really fat right now” and plans to lose a ton of weight after press for the movie is done.  Doesn’t he realize his size is one of the things that makes him so endearing and identifiable?

Phil Spector: He faces trial number two for allegedly killing actress Lana Clarkson.  The first trial, which ended in deadlock, lasted 5 months.  Can’t believe he–or Clarkson’s family–have to go through all that again!

Oprah: Available in Spanish for the first time in 22 seasons.  What took so long?!

  1. Who are we to criticize what Sean Penn does?

  2. Totally disagree. He represents our country. He is a celebrity and people look up to him. He should act responsibly and in the best interests of our country, not some other one.
