The Entertation Index: October 23

October 23, 2009

Baldwin, Alec — As if you needed any more reasons to love Alec Baldwin, here he is as the first male host of the Elle’s annual “Women in Hollywood” banquet. Good stuff. If you’re not currently watching 30 Rock, as the media says you’re not, I’m going to personally come to your home and brain you with a pipe wrench. Please don’t let this show suffer the same fate as Arrested Development.

Cleese, John — On the heels of the best Monty Python documentary about Monty Python ever aired — the recent six-parter Almost the Truth on IFC — and the comedy troupe’s 40th anniversary, Cleese talks to Rolling Stone about the group dynamic, Fawlty Towers and a giant heap of trash named in his honor. And no, I’m not talking about Pink Panther 2.

Kardashian, Khloe — NBA star Lamar Odom says that although he hasn’t yet, he does plan on introducing new bride Khloe Kardashian to his offspring from a previous relationship. Odom says that the plan is to take Kardashian to a large meal before she meets his children, as a full stomach may lessen Kardashian’s desire to eat them.

Psycho, American — American Psycho director Mary Harron revealed during a BlackBook Magazine interview that Christian Bale’s inspiration for title character Patrick Bateman was none other than Tom Cruise. Bale claimed he used Cruise’s “intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes” as a lead characteristic for Bateman. Ironically, just like Bateman, Cruise has also turned to be a delusional madman with power issues.

Simpson-Wentz, Ashlee — Singer Ashlee Simpson-Wentz has reportedly been jettisoned from the CW reboot of the classic soap drama Melrose Place. Unfortunately, unlike Ashlee’s new nose, some things just aren’t an improvement over the original.

Sweetin, Jodie — Formerly Full House’s precocious Stephanie, child actress Jodie Sweetin writes in her new memoir that despite an outward appearance and vow of sobriety, she remained addicted to cocaine, ecstacy and meth possibly as recently as late 2008. She claims still to be unclear whether several years of her youth spent with a woodchuck puppet, an Elvis impersonator and two twins secretly pretending to be the same person actually happened or whether it was just drug-fueled hallucination.
