The Entertation Index: January 13

January 13, 2010

Cruise, Tom — A poll conducted by a British agency has revealed Tom Cruise to be the world’s “Sexiest Short Man,” according to The Sun. Cruise beat out fellow competitors Seth Green and Elijah Wood, plus Buzz Lightyear, Owen Wilson as the tiny cowboy in Night at the Museum and the “father sea monkey” from the old back-of-the-comic book advertisements.

Kardashian, Khloe — Mrs. Lamar Odom called into a Los Angeles radio station morning show recently to discuss her family plans with her Laker husband. Kardashian was disappointed, however, when she discovered she was calling to “dish on having a baby” and not calling to “have a baby on a dish.”

Shatner, William — The former Star Trek star was having a “silly moment” with aerobic septuagenarian Richard Simmons when things got weird and awkward and Simmons allegedly walked off the set. Although if we’re being totally honest, can you imagine any way the meeting of these two wouldn’t be weird and awkward? For that matter, can you imagine that any encounter with either of them separately wouldn’t be weird and awkward?

Spider-Man 4 — After director Sam Raimi made claims that he couldn’t bring in Sony’s next Spider-Man sequel in the time demanded without sacrificing creative quality, Sony has decided to retool the whole franchise, brooming the cast and Sam Raimi and hiring The Rundown screenwriter Jamie Vanderbilt. Finally, Sony got rid of those hacks Raimi and his team of no-name actors and hooked up with a name like Jamie Vanderbilt, who brought us Darkness Falls. It’s about damn time. Seriously, though, this is like assigning Godfather 4 to the director of Suburban Nanny and casting the kids from Jersey Shore. Just a bad idea all ’round.

Stamps, Postage — The Royal Mail yesterday released a set of ten stamps featuring album covers by famous British artists Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and New Order. It will be the first time David Bowie has been licked by half the women and men of the United Kingdom since his Ziggy Stardust days.

Transformers 3 — Michael Bay is supposedly set to begin filming Transformers 3 this May, and that the newest installment will “focus more on development of the characters, particularly the relationship betweeen Sam and Bumblebee.” Although if you’re walking out of the last Transformers movie saying  “you know what ruined that movie? A lack of relationship development between Sam and Bumblebee,” you probably don’t have many friends of your own.

    The stamps seem appropriate: after all, the Stones have been mailing it in for going on thirty years now.
