Dear Ted:
So now there are reports that Sophia Bush is dating Austin Nichols. Did that girl ever meet a costar she didn't like? When she goes through all of her male costars, will she start going through the female ones?

Dear Sophia's Choice:
Don't count on S.B. walkin' down the aisle with Austin like she did her first hubby/costar, Chad Michael Murray. But you can bet they'll milk the attention for a while!

JJ is bought and paid for. He has the credibility of a cow on crack, or for that matter, Perez Hilton on steroids. Being a normal couple in HW is almost an oxymoron, and when that term is applied to a screwed up bearding situation like Reeke, the term 'normal' is almost laughable.

Luna (Untitled Moon Project)

Genre: Sci-Fi Thriller
Premise: A renegade group of former space employees travels the world, stealing space equipment in an attempt to go back to the moon.
About: A relatively unknown project that's being directed by Doug Liman which will star Jake Gyllenhaal. The script was originally penned by Liman with the help of 'Along Came Polly' director John Hamburg, but has been rewritten by 'Black Hawk Down' scribe Mark Bowden. It's unclear which draft this is but I'm fairly certain it's the Bowden draft. Dan Mazeau and Ken Nolan are also credited with working on the screenplay.
Writer: Mark Bowden.

I have to say that Doug Liman is one of the more underrated directors out there. No one gives him any credit for Swingers but the guy figured out a way to balance Vaughn and Favreau's love for improvisation with a production schedule that couldn't afford second takes. He went on to do "Go", a cool kinetic flick that played with time and still managed to differentiate itself from all the Pulp Fiction clones going out at the time. Mr. & Mrs. Smith was a movie I was so sure I was going to hate that I had to literally be dragged to the theater. Somehow, the movie turned out to be a good time. Then he started a franchise in the Bourne movies that had no business being as big as they were - since Matt Damon's career was basically in the cellar when the first film premiered. His only misstep was the Hayden Christensen starrer "Jumper", which felt like the projectionist had accidentally fallen on the fast-forward button for the entirety of the movie. It's one of a handful of movies that actually felt like it chopped off too much film (but we did get to see Billy Elliot all grown up). So when I heard that Mr. Liman would be directing a big-budget semi-sci-fi flick about going to the moon, I wanted to check out the script.

A mysterious group of misfits is stealing rockets and boosters and, yes, even lunar landers from all over the world - even going so far as to leave "I.O.U.'s" in their wake. They appear to be a rogue collection of former space pilots and engineers led by a hot Eastern European woman named Anya. She's one of those "save the earth" type women...but on like a case of red bull. FBI and NASA officials find out that the group is following an outdated thesis project from an ex-NASA employee which proposes how to get to the moon at 1/10 the cost of any known mission. The author of this project is an Observation Center employee named Cole - a man who has no idea that any of this is going on.

Well he's about to. Because Cole is the last item on the list. One second he's staring at the moon, the next he's thrown into the back of a van, drugged, and when he wakes up, he's on a mission to the moon. Yes, Cole is sitting in the cockpit of an old rusted Kazakhstan rocket three seconds before liftoff! Cole is equal parts surprised, terrified, and sincerely pissed off.

there's more! said...

Apparently Anya's group has dual motives: to mine Helium-3, a high performance energy source which can only be found on the moon and (I'm not kidding about this) to leave a Monk on the moon to establish a Lunar Lighthouse. Apparently nobody told Anya that the purpose of a Lighthouse is to guide incoming ships to safety. Since the only thing that's going to be heading towards the moon in the next 20 years is a meteor or two and the occasional Chinese satellite, I'd say Marco the Monk is going to have a a lot of free time on his hands. I hope he brought a Gameboy.

Well, because they're all amateurs and they don't have Houston on their side (the American space program refuses to help) they crash land, leaving them in the position of trying to figure out how to get back home. My interest started to fade long before this, but this was the breaking point. First of all, who cares if this team gets to the moon or not? We've already been to the moon, oh, what... 40 years ago. I wouldn't care if you told me my damn cousin was on the mission. Getting to the moon is old. There's nothing special about it, even if you were able to save a couple of dollars in the process. What's next? A renegade team that sends another rover to Mars? And maybe the two rovers clash for Martian supremacy? There could be some high drama in that. But seriously, all that happens is that they crash on a place we've already been before, and then try to find a way back. What's interesting about this?

You remember that movie, "Space Cowboys?" With Tommy Lee Jones and Clint Eastwood? The whole thing was about these old men going up into space. But what they did with that script is they added another element to the story. Once they were up there, they found out they had to fix this mysterious rouge satellite. The curiosity of what was behind that satellite added another dimension to the story that made it more than just a bunch of guys going into space. That's what "Luna" needed. That extra story element. What if they got to the moon and realized some country had a secret base there? What would the people occupying that base do to make sure the base's existence stayed secret? That's a story. Trying to get to the moon, crashing, then trying to get back isn't a story. I'm sorry but it isn't.

It was for this reason that I couldn't recommend Luna.

Script link: Luna

[ ] trash
[x] barely kept my interest
[ ] worth the read
[ ] impressive
[ ] genius

What I learned: One thing I will give Luna is that it's well-researched. While I wasn't always keen on the logic behind *why* they were doing this, everything seemed plausible and realistic because of how much research went into it. I believed that what they were doing was possible. A lot of writers don't do any research but it makes a difference. Readers know when a writer's bullshitting and professional writers almost always research their subject matter. So when someone comes along that doesn't, it sticks out like a sore thumb.

Anyone who thinks that Austin isn't bearding (assuming he's gay at all, see below) because they haven't seen as much fake PDA as Reeke is nuts.

Austin is a fourth-rate actor with a few minor third-rate movie roles and a third-rate TV series on his CV. Reeke is a carefully constructed commercial product financed by a big studio (Disney) for the benefit of two of its biggest stars : Jake and Reese. A pile of money is involved, money that is *not* going to be spent on a c/d-list actor like Austin. So, of course you won't see the elaborate hoaxes, staged photo-ops and planted gossip rag rumors for Austin and Sophia. They aren't important enough to construct a Reeke-sized hoax for. The return on investment is not there.

Now for the more controversial assertion.

I believe that Austin is as straight as a dye. All of the homo-energy coming off of Jake and Austin is coming from Jake, not Austin. Austin is a generic, ordinary, third-rate heterosexual male actor who happened to have found himself in the same room with a famous, horny, gorgeous, love-starved, closeted gay actor desperate for a little companionship in LA. Austin was flattered, took pity on Jake, saw the professional possibilities (self-promotion, bromance, whatever), and decided to go along for the ride. He might have even flirted for awhile with pathetic, emotionally confused Jake, as some straight male guys like to do with their gay male friends - before they go back, permanently - to their straight female girlfriends. And Jake might have even believed this game for awhile, but he certainly doesn't now.

That's it. There is no more homo-erotic energy in J/Austin. And yes, I've seen ALL of the pictures too.

It is important to understand this because it explains so much of Jake's bearding.

There is no great gay (or straight) love worth sacrificing his career for in Jake's life. He's a pretty lonely guy, incredibly love-starved in so many ways. The only thing that he has now is his career, and his current career obsession is a franchise. He's doing what he needs to do to make PoP successful. Meaningful gay love, in the short-term, is not a real possibility for him and he knows it.

Since there is no great gay love at home waiting for him, no wonderful man telling him that unless he stops bearding the relationship is over, why not sell his soul to the highest bidder?"

We Have to Take Our Clothes Off said...

Being a celebrity today is a lot harder than it used to be. I say this as though I have experience in a) being a celebrity and b) living back in the day. I have neither of those experiences. However, I feel like in order to be a celebrity today you have to either be really talented at one thing or pretend to be talented at lots of different things.

If you are in the first class of persons, generating publicity for a movie takes about as much effort as breathing. Tom Hanks, for instance, can literally film himself taking a crap and it will most likely generate some Oscar buzz.

For the second class of celebs, it can be a little bit tougher. What do you do to get people to get out and see your new mediocre movie or listen to your new tepid album or whatever subpar activity you’ve decided to try your hand at? You could hit the talk show circuit aggressively, but as you’re a lukewarm personality, people will most likely not be amped about tuning in to hear you plug your latest venture at 1:30 AM on a work night. What you can do is what millions (maybe not millions…tens? twenties?) of celebrities before you have done. Hit the internet. With your camera. And your naked body.

What brings this to mind currently is the latest nekkid photo to hit the interwebs that of Mr. Jamie Foxx. I’m shocked by this for a variety of reasons. First and foremost being, goddamn he should change his name to Jamie Foxxx and look into a career in porn. Secondly, no more than 5 years ago, Jamie Foxx had an Oscar in his hand. But come to think of it, I haven’t heard much from Jamie Foxx since “Blame It” came out back in February. But considering that video shows Jamie palling around with Forest Whitaker, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, and Ron Howard, I’m surprised he feels he has to lower himself by lowers his pants. Though I suppose The Soloist has already come and gone from movie theaters with not as much hype as was expected. But Wikipedia tells me that Mr. Foxx has another movie due out in October. While it is only August, it’s never too early to generate some excitement for a movie. And with the image of Jamie Foxx’s wang seared into your retina (and at the top of most Google searches) for the next few weeks, Law Abiding Citizen may scrape some dough together from the box office.

We Have to Take Our Clothes Off said...

An even better example involves a repeat offender of these publicity generating tactics, Ms. Vanessa Anne Hudgens. I’m sure everyone saw Baby V’s lopsided bush when it first leaked to the internet back in September of 2007. You’d think she would have learned her lesson and stop taking naked pictures of herself slash delete any pre-existing pictures of herself. That’d be a big NOPE, because more pictures leaked to the internet earlier this month. And in a strange “coincidence” V.Hudge has a movie which came out over the weekend. A movie in which she plays a character named “Sa5m” where the 5 is silent. Clearly, the producers of this movie realize people are going to need an extra push to go see this piece of garbage.

Surely two instances do not make a standard. Well for you fine people, I combed through the annals of celebrity scandals to find some correlations. Let’s see. Colin Farrell’s sex tape was leaked in early 2006, a year in which he released Miami Vice (with none other than Jamie Foxx! Twist!), a movie with much hype, but not a lot of results. Pam Anderson’s sex tape started hitting the old interweb right around the time Barb Wire was set to hit the silver screen. As iff Leighton Meester couldn’t simply let her collabo with Cobra Starship on “Good Girls Go Bad” hype up her forthcoming album, her foot-job sex tape leaked roughly at the same time. Likewise, Kristen Davis let Charlotte York’s good girl image go bad soon before Sex and the City hit theaters with an alleged sex tape of her own.

Let’s say that all of the above instances are really publicity stunts and not Revenge of the Ex (a la Mya) although there’s something kinda hot about revenge on a famous ex via public naked humiliation or maybe it’s just me. I would kill to be a fly on the wall when the conversation between a star and their publicist turns to getting naked. “Listen, Vanessa, V, Baby V. We’ve got a bit of a problemo here. The numbers for your new movie just aren’t where we want them to be. I Googled you last night and it wasn’t pretty. You were the #9 hit. #9! Nickelback got more hits than you! I’d love to see you at #1, and there’s one way I can think of to make that happen. Still with me? This is a cameraphone. I’m going to step out of the room and if you happen to take some intimate pictures of yourself, so be it. And I can promise you that I won’t not accidentally leak them to Perez. Now drop trou, I’ll be back in ten. Love you babe!”

If it does actually work and a naked photo scandal does increase publicity (the litmus test for this will be whether Bandslam is in theaters for more than a month), then please expect pictures of my raw dong to be floating around the internet faster than you can say “More like 2balls1blog!” If not, maybe keep the celeb naked photo shoots to a minimum. However, I heard Jake Gyllenhaal has a movie coming out soon, and if he needs to increase publicity, then by all means.

BRYAN BATT'S BRUSH WITH A BELLBOY

BRYAN Batt -- who plays Salvatore Romano, the closeted art director of the Sterling Cooper ad agency on AMC's hit "Mad Men" -- had his first gay sex on last week's episode when he lip-locked with a hotel bellboy, who put his hands down Sal's pants. Interviewed by Frank DeCaro on Sirius XM, Batt said, "Orestes [Arcuni], the young man who played the bellboy, was fantastic -- he was really, really good. He's straight, and I told him, 'Close your eyes and just pretend I'm Christie Brinkley.'"

Orestes Arcuni said...

Bryan was very nice, but a little nervous so I decided not to mention I'm gay. But I did think about Christie Brinkley - I needed something to get my erection down.

Ted has been bashing Reeke since day one, the latest was tame. I remember several posts including him making fun of their PDA at the Lakers game, the coffee dates, etc.

PR doesn't care about Ted, otherwise he would have stopped or toned it down after all these years. There are some actors he doesn't touch with a 10 ft pole as per E lawyers.

If actors like Angelina and Brad ignore his constant bashing and him preicting that they will reak up any day,that she openly flirts with other women and that she still is on smack, Jake's PR sure the hell ain't paying attention to him either.

I read something awhile back that said that actors and their PR don't pay attention to gossip bloggers with the exception of Perez, they mentioned Jake's PR. I have to search for that.

It's not that they trust Perez, but they do care because he is the most visible and popular of the internet bloggers. The others don't register outside of the internet including Ted despite being around for years. All Ted seems to be doing for the most part is making sure he gets a ton of hits by mentioning Twilight in every post. Even when he mentioned Reeke a few weeks ago, he made sure he mentioned Twilight so he can get the hits.

While Jake filmed Brothers ona closed set, we were spared Reeke pics, just a few blog sightings due to the fact that she was also filming, FC.

Ted stopped Crisp Lisp all of a sudden and Crouchalistic or whatever was about Franc, you noticed he hasn't done a BI about that in ages after doing back to back BI's> he does refer to him and makes commenst occasionally about Franco but that's it. How much you want to bet Franco's PR said something,the same thing with Lisp whoever that was.

Stopped the BI's about Orlando nloom and Viggio after Blooms people said something and Ted's explanastion that no one cared was BS, I know a lot in the fandom that sent him ton of letters and he just stopped.

Jake'speople never said/did anything back then proly thought it was good PR with BBM coming up andhe would stop. He did in 11/05 - 3/06 when he said he was bored with TT and was going to start doing BI's about Lisp, then a month later he dropped Lisp and started TT again. 2 thngs happened then :Lisp's people contacted the E lawyers and 4/06 was when WFT started and Star, a mainstream rag first did a story on Jake and Austin, then all of a sudden he was on the TT trail again because he knew for sure he had an audience.

They really rather focus on the big fish, the others they can afford to ignore in their opinion.

I know you don't like Perez, most people don't but that's the truth.

Perez likes Reese, even pre Reeke and he likes Jake. And he seems to think Reeke is legit and that Jake is straight, maybe bi. There will be no outing.

Perez knows Jake is gay, he hinted that more than once before Jake's PR arranged things with Perez.

From time to time Perez suggests Reese Witherspoon is Jake's beard - he wouldn't do that if he really liked her.

9:45: No because like most gossip columnists I don't think he has actual inside info on most stars, just BS speculation and embelishing.

He stopped putting Jake under Gay,gay, gay (Clooney too) but he still occasionally implies that Jake and Clooney are gay and or bearding. When asked about it, Perez has said that is only joking when he says Jake is gay on his site, he does it with a lot of actors ut who knows? He gets more reaction when he does that than when he does a pro-Reeke post.

PR is concerened with Perez because of the traffic on his site is high despite the fact that you have to now register to post , also he is very visible outside of that. On the E site you don't haveto register to comment on the blog posts opening it up to the same people posting over and over, something that PR is well aware of. MKyou haveto register as well but he has a core group of followers that post there and you pretty know who they are if you post and or lurk there.

I'm surprised JJ doesn't make you register, maybe he will soon.

Probably because he heard about the TT rumors and has some fun with it sometimes. He has always been Reeke supportive.

If you checked Reese, Jake entries pre Reeke, you'd have noticed he's always been friendly in his posts about each of them.

9:56: Perez like Reese, most of her solo posts are positive, Jake I get the feeling he could care less about. When Perez first started his site he referred to Jake as Gyllen-Ho, most thought that he meant that as homo, but it was because he was spotted with several women while he was supposed to be back with Kiki or as he called her Drunkst, he hated Kiki and still does.

It,'s no coincidence that he first broke the Gyllenspoon story. Since then he has gone back and forth but IMO he is bored by the whole situation and unless PR actually pushes him to do something, he won't go out of his way.

PR would probably rather he ignore them than go back and fort.

IMO Perez doesn't actually know one way or another about Jake and doesn't care, too boring.

I bet Jake is embarrassed by Reeke by now. For some reason he is hanging on, if the whole thing is an arrangement than probably for that reason.
Jake named Ryan Gosling as an acting role model. But Ryan Gosling is not pretentious, natural and very talented and doesn't need an A-List starlet to bring him up there. I still think Jake is a decent actor and I hope PoP won't end up a disaster. There's still a bit of a fan inside of me, I don't know why.

Jake might be trying to distance himself from Reeke right now, so that no questions about it during the Brothers promotion will come up. Like if they broke it off or taking a break, what talk show host is gonna ask about that? If I were him I'd not want to have anyone ask about it either, how embarrassing that in 3 years she's selling it on magazine covers that he's proposed at least 5 times and he hasn't said a word that they're even dating. Even if it were real, who the hell wants to admit they're fucking old sour bitchface Witheredpoon that 90% of people in HW hate and won't work with?!

I say with all Jake's promos and interviews coming up, its time for him to shit or get off the pot. Either quit the bearding so he gets no questions and tells no lies, or lie and tell the world he loves her and marry the bitch. Either way he needs to get his shit done and over with.

Perez deleted all of his old posts about Jake being gay after PR got to him and gave him the "exclusive" that Reeke was an item. Someone on Data Lounge pointed this out a while ago, and noted that Perez didn't do it right and that his old posts on Jake could be found in the way back machine.

PR thought that if they got Perez on their side everyone would believe Reeke was real because gasp, Perez, a gay man known for outing, would never do that. Perez is a joke, and he can be bought, unlike Ted and Michael K. He is perfectly happy to protect all the A and B list gay stars while outing people lower down on the food chain.

Why would he be upset over Rendition at the Rome premiere? They hadn't even seen it yet. The fan crowds there were excited to see him just like any other film festival, but he wouldn't smile for them on the red carpet. He was very sullen. A fan whose pics of it are on flicker and they had comments with the pics saying he wasn't responsive even though fans were cheering for him. Even if Rendition was a box office disaster in the US, why would Jake snub cheering fans in Rome? IMO there was more to it than B.O., it was shame at what he had done earlier that day, the Reeke Rome pics.

Also he was a physical mess in the Rome photo call pics. His suit had flakes all over it and he just looked bad. He didn't have that star "glow" and he rarely looked anyone in the eyes. Even compare the Rome press conference pics to other PC pics. There's maybe 2 or 3 pics and Jake looks like he's been sentenced to death, he looks 30 years older and grim.

At Cannes he was nasty with fans as well. There was athread on IHJ where a fan said that he ignored fans while Mark and Chloe were nice. He did stop at the airport for a second when someone ran up to him to take a pic but he wouldn't smie.

When he got to the Cannes/Zosiac screening he continued to dodge fans and run into cars. When they did the red carpet, fans yelled his name, he ignored them until Chloe tapped him on the shoulder, then he turned to the crowd and gestured to yell louder, the jerk.

WDW/Kate was there but she cleaned up that part but I read the real account on IHJ and a LJ.

This was May 2007. He was all smiles at the phtocall of course but IMO he wasn't dressed to sharp and you could see specs of gray hair in some pics which he nows dyes.

I'm guilty of it too but why is it that the bulk of the guilt/pressure of Rendition failing go to Jake? When you think about it, it was Reese's movie. She had the most screen time, her character was the main story, she was the lead, her name was first and she got paid the most. IMO she was the worst actor in that movie, with her "Just tell mee where heeeeee izzzzzzzzzz" screeching. If only they had cut her part down to a third of what it was and made Jake's role bigger and the story more of a suspense, it would have been a winner. SHE was the one who ruined it. But all the pressure of it flopping goes on Jake. WTF?

You know damn fucking well that if, IF Rendition had done well Reese would have taken all the credit. It would have been her movie. Seeing how it didn't do well, it's now Jake's movie.

You know who I remember the best in Rendition? Who made the character their own? Peter Sarsgaard. He had the least screen time but he made the biggest screen impact. I can still remember his voice and his character and what he said and how he said it. All I recall of Jake is his befuddled face in a dark corner. Reese, ugh, the screech, trying to look concerned, and the posturing. Awful.

Anonymous said...

2:33 PM, that's because Sarsgaard is a really good actor.

Reese is good in funny and funny satirical movies and was lucky to get a role in a bio pic (Oscars love them) and deliver. I doubt another nomination or Oscar will come anytime soon.

Jake can be good if he really wants to and if he chooses the right parts. Rendition wasn't a fitting role for him.

2:30 ok I'm wrong. But still, she's the one who fucking butchered it. And I still say she had the most scenes and screen time. That's what surprised me when I saw it, how the movie promos had Jake as the lead but the actual film was more Reese than him. IMO if she had been billed as the lead it would have sold as a Lifetime Movie. Instead they used Jake to draw people in and it was Reese who was on film the most and who in the end fucked it up with her bad bad acting. I will NEVER see another movie with her again. Even without Reeke LOL. She is just a horrid actress.

I read a while back that Oscars generally go to actors when they play a role that's opposite of their normal selves/temperament. Which makes sense, if they always play themselves, then its not acting! Remember Denzel Washington in Training Day? Total asshole. Got the Oscar, because it was a fine piece of acting...he's the nicest guy in HW and nowhere near that TD character. Well anyway to make my point LOL, remember what Reese got her Oscar for. Playing a nice, talented lady who cared about others, was family oriented and who stood by her man. 'Nuff said.

I remember Gavin Hood saying that he approached Reese during one of the awards shows in '06 about Rendition when his original choice, Cate Blanchart wasn't available. He didn't mention Jake who you woud assume was at some of those same parties. Then in Sept. of '06 it was annoumced that Jake and Reese were doing Rendition.

I wondered at the time if Jake got Reese to talk Gavin into getting him the part, i asked this because I remember Fincher first saying Jake was his 1st choice for Zodiac but later admitted that J. Anniston lobbyed Fincher for the role for Jake. Anniston was friends with Fincher since she was married to Brad.

I do remember reading that Jake convinced Reese to take the part because she was still upset about the split and didn't think she could be focused but that sounded like S at the time.
