‘American Idol’ Will Cover the Rolling Stones Next Week

Written by , Posted in General

‘American Idol’ needed to plan something big next week for the top 12, and I think they’ve done it.  The singers will perform songs by the Rolling Stones.  No word yet on whether any members of the band will show up, but my guess is that they won’t.  I can’t even believe that the Stones agreed to release their songs on Idol, though its probably great promotion.

‘Hurt Locker’ DVD Sales on the Rise

Written by , Posted in General

If you want your film to make more money, just get a Best Picture Oscar.  The ‘Hurt Locker’ recently earned the distinction of being one of the lowest grossing films to win Best Picture.  The film seems to be making up for that in DVD sales.  It has managed to make the top 10 rental list each week.  Interestingly, the ‘Hurt Locker’ is also returning to theaters following the Oscar win.  Double the venue, double the money?

Gaborey Sidibe is in Showtime’s ‘The Big C’

Written by , Posted in General

Sidibe will appear in the new series, as a student in Laura Linney’s class.  Linney will lead the series, where she will play a teacher dealing with terminal cancer.  Wow, didn’t I already post about the overflow of projects related to cancer?  This show is being called a “dark comedy.”  Any interest?

Evan Rachel Wood Drops Out of the ‘Spider-man’ Musical

Written by , Posted in General

It appears that Evan Rachel Wood got some good career advice.  She was set to play Mary Jane in ‘Spider-man, Turn Off the Dark,” but she recently dropped out due to “scheduling conflicts.”  Translation?  She got cold feet because she realized that turning Spider-man into a musical might be the worst idea ever.

Samantha Harris v. Brooke Burke: Harris says she can Return to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ if she wants

Written by , Posted in General

Samantha Harris was pretty cryptic in a recent interview, saying “who knows what the future holds,” and “for season 10” of DWTS, she “want[ed] to focus on ‘The Insider.'”  Since Brooke Burke has been named the new host, I wonder if Samantha Harris is having buyer’s remorse.  After all, ‘The Insider’ is the worst show on television.  Perhaps this is her way of telling Burke not to get too comfortable.  Am I reading to much into it?
