Welcome to this week’s installment of The Most Important People on The Internet where one of you clearly used some form of incredible witchcraft to point out that Paris Hilton looks exactly like George Hamilton’s Gay Zorro if Gay Zorro owned a chicken cutlet factory. My mind is officially blown. On that note, everyone needs Read More …
Of course, the less optimistic way to say it is that the sibling directors of the basic cable-haunting comedy You, Me and Dupree might direct Captain America 2. But why make ourselves sad?
Though The Avengers has yet to hit theaters and debut Captain America’s new jammies, Marvel is moving quickly to sort out what next to do with our most jingoistic shield-based superhero. As reported by Vulture, studio head Kevin Feige is expected to select a director for Captain America 2 by as early as the middle of next month, and already the candidate pool is said to be down to three (or four, if you count directing duos as two): Anthony and Joseph Russo, F. Gary Gray, and George Nolfi.
As mentioned, the Russos are brother co-directors (why are there so many of these?) known mostly for their work in the cult television world. Their pilots for Arrested Development, Running Wilde, and Community helped to define what those series would grow into before their premature cancellations (good luck, Community!). Unfortunately, their last feature was You, Me and Dupree, which was not a very good movie. No one has ever said, “Captain America was decent enough, but I’d like to see the next one go in the direction of Owen Wilson moves in and HE JUST WON’T LEAVE!” I somehow doubt the Russos would say that either, though, so they seem like a reasonable enough choice. No odder than Jon Favreau directing Iron Man or Kenneth Branagh directing Thor, at least.
Meanwhile, there’s also Friday director F. Gary Gray in the running. His last two films were Law Abiding Citizen and Be Cool, and after those turds, he could definitely use a career pick-me-up. But shouldn’t that pick-me-up really be earned through the close examination of yet another Friday? Look deep into your Ice Cube and you’ll know it’s true.
Finally, there’s George Nolfi. His only directing job is on last year’s The Adjustment Bureau, though he has writing credits on Ocean’s Twelve, The Bourne Ultimatum, and more. Like The First Avenger director Joe Johnston, he would probably do a dutifully competent enough job on the film, but he would probably also keep complaining about how much better Matt Damon would throw a shield.
So, what do you think of the options? Who should be instructing Chris Evans on his motivations for pouting?
Her small screen career is certainly on the up-and-up, and Alison Brie landed herself a feature in the April 2012 issue of BlackBook magazine.
The 29-year-old actress donned designer dresses from the likes of Emilio Pucci and Burberry Prorsum for the elegant Harper Smith shot spread accompanying her comedic column titled “School’s Out”.
Highlights from Miss Brie’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to BlackBook!
On getting her comedic start at a very young age:
“When I was a little girl, I was always trying to make my family laugh. I would perform little SNL-type skits with my sister. My signature sketch was about edible wieners. Picture me, a skinny little eight-year-old girl in Pasadena wearing a trench coat to reveal a hot dog between my legs, and I’d burst into an advertisement. ‘You’re walking down the street and you get hungry, and you don’t have anything to eat. New edible wieners! It’s your wiener, but you can eat it!’”
On her take on comedy:
“A big part of comedy to me is looking stupid and being comfortable looking unattractive. Comedy comes before vanity.”
On her TV show ‘Community’:
“What keeps people coming back to watch the show is that these people are constantly growing and changing, and that those relationships are evolving. You can go see stand-up and laugh, and that’s fine, but it’s the story that should keep you coming back.”

Welcome to Friday’s The Crap We Missed coming at you slightly early because it’s past noon and it’s hard to type and hold a whiskey bottle at the same time we couldn’t wait to bring you Charles Barkley in drag. No, not the bikini pic, you racist. Anyway, we’ve also got Slash‘s wife unleashing her Read More …
This is the entertainment of our future. This is the real I’d Buy That for a Dollar. In a few years, we’ll all be Super Tivoing CBS to watch Keyboard Cat inserted into Casablanca, and CBS won’t even bother calling it “Catsablanca,” because they know that will go over too many heads. (One half to two of the Two and a Half Men will also be cats.)
