Johansson, Scarlett — The Avengers co-star recently told Contact Music, which is apparently a thing, that she gets tired of playing and being offered “sexy” roles, telling reporters that “it’s not like I actively look for sexy roles…I never think about my character being sexy unless that’s written in,” and “I always wanted to be a character actor.” As such, she is currently eyeing the role of “Sexy Falstaff” in an upcoming film adaptation of Henry IV.

Kardashian, Kim — The Keeping Up with the Kardashians magnate recently gave words of support for former Republican presidential nominee Rick Santorum to reporters at the New York Daily News, stating that she was “impressed” with Santorum and his daughters, and that she likes their “family connection.” Nearly all political pundits on both sides of the fence currently agree that if Santorum wasn’t run out of the race already, this certainly would have done it.

Perry, Tyler — The Atlanta studio of film entrepreneur Tyler Perry was damaged late Tuesday night as a fire ripped through part of the backlot, leaving questions as to the undetermined nature of what may have started it. Perry is expected to address these issues in the end of the third act when he gathers his staff together at a church, where everyone will reach their catharsis and sing a happy gospel song as the credits roll.

Sheen, Charlie — Tiger-blooded actor Charlie Sheen may suing a topless club in New York City for naming a “Charlie Sheen Room” after him where patrons can eat sushi off of naked dancers, claiming it could damage his reputation. Yes, Charlie, because that’s how it works. That damages your reputation. Not waving machetes, babbling about alien races or terrorizing prostitutes cowering under tables in expensive NYC hotel suites. Good to see you’ve still got it, buddy! Welcome back to the Index! We’ve missed you!
