While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Mel Gibson, for all his PR troubles, isn't hurting for work. The actor is in talks for a part in Robert Rodriguez's new film, "Machete Kills." [THR]
  • We're a little concerned for Scarlett Johansson. We can enjoy a good chicken wing (Korean fried, please) with the best of them, but the actress seems to have formed a dependency. "Buffalo chicken wings, I am addicted to them," she admitted on the red carpet. "I can't stop eating them. I just can't get enough." Honey, we're sure there's help if you need it. [Fox411]
  • Quote of the day:  "Lindsay Lohan may be the most insured actress that ever walked on a sound stage," says the producer of her Lifetime movie, "Liz & Dick." He's not just relying on a "Plan B," that one. [E!]
  • Jennifer Lawrence, it seems, has become the definition of striking while the iron is hot. The Oscar nominee/"Hunger Games" trilogy heroine is said to be in talks for yet another movie, this time the adaptation of Jeannette Walls' "The Glass Castle" memoir. [Deadline]
  • Excellent news "True Blood" fans: Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly mystery books could wind up on Syfy as a series called "Grave Sight." [EW]
  • It seems the voice in Nicki Minaj's head has now told her to reinstate her Twitter account after previously instructing her to delete it. (Roman? Was that you?) [MTV]
  • We're just waiting for the day when Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are "caught" holding hands on these little secluded trips of theirs. [People]

    yea, you and your friends really killed these blogs. I guess you'll delete this post as well because it's true. In fact, why don't you deleted everyone's comments, other than your friends of course, that doesn't match your standards.

  10. i dont know

    blue cheese waited all this time to to let the chicken wings know that the blue cheese was still around when all this time the chicken wings thought blue cheese was all done and gone. Not that it would matter bc blue cheese was replaced by bq sauce. Chicken wings cant understand w-t – h happened. blue cheese popping out of the sky like heny penny or something. then to top it off blue cheese started hanging out with the nuts. walnut, peanut and so on. Ya know what im saying.

      You're right, you can stay up all night posting and then I'll wake up in the morning after a good night of sleep and delete your comments.
      But what does that accomplish?
      What do you want?

  14. ?

    What was so bad with the comment I left asking if you were going to delete cc crew's comments about their lives? There wasn't anything negative about that, or, are you just going to delete everyone's comments now other than your friends?

    • @ ?

      Where is all these comments you speak of ? The only thing I see of them is you using their names and making dumb comments.

    Every time I see the SciFi channels new name I think of syphilis. Whatever PR firm handled their rebranding should give them their money back. Seems like it was all downhill after Stargate bit the dust.

    Honestly, I think Mel has been flogged plenty. Deservedly so after all the racism and insanity. But in the end if he's changed and can keep himself on the rails I think he deserves another chance. Hollywood is full of people who did far worse than beat their girlfriends and curse the jews. Still think it was a bad idea not to have him come back as Mad Max. He made the role and it's going to be an uphill battle for the flick without him.

    the sad thing is the Sci-Fi channel changed its name so they could get away from science fiction and start doing more paranormal, horror, & vampire cr@p. why not just do a separate "Horror Channel" and leave the sci-fi aloe?

    Have been quite a few of those on here lately. I do agree on the race issue. If he was raised judgmental of race he will have those tenancies. Factual information Trina you are correct.
