The Entertation Index: May 18

May 18, 2010

Craigslist TV –– A series of short documentaries called Craigslist TV, available soon on the web, will follow the myriad of ways by which people use the classified-ad website, from finding true love to seeking out a new apartment. Congratulations, America. Marketing company in Ottawa now believe you to be so lazy and easily entertained that they think you’ll go online to watch someone go shopping for old, filthy sofas.

Diaz, Cameron — The actress is currently, according to the New York Post, locked in battle with fellow starlet Kate Hudson over Yankee third baseman Alex Rodriguez, whom Hudson previously dated and whom Diaz is currently dating. You can follow this story now, or you can wait till spring 2011 for the winning romantic comedy Double Play, starring Katherine Heigl as Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway as Cameron Diaz and Gerard Butler as Alex Rodriguez. The L.A. Times is already calling it a “hilarious romp — you’ve never seen Heigl and Hathaway as Hudson and Diaz like this!”

Hudson, Kate — See Diaz, Cameron

LaBeouf, Shia — The star of Michael Bay’s upcoming Transformers 3 promises that the second sequel will be “the craziest action movie ever made, or we failed.”  This only proves my longstanding point that you cannot have the craziest action movie ever made without hiring both Jamie Kennedy and Patrick Dempsey to star in it. If LaBeouf’s prediction is true, I will also look forward to a monkey riding a horse, which is riding another horse, on a speedboat loaded with explosives.

Museum, Hirshhorn — Cleanup continues after an out-of-control UPS truck jumped a concrete barrier to crash through the front glass window of Washington DC’s famed Hirshhorn Museum of Art last week. Efforts to  make repairs are being constantly hampered by pretentious art-lovers who keep wandering through the crime scene believing the accident is the Hirshhorn’s latest installment “Delivery Truck on Canvas,” murmuring about a “scathing and deft commentary on disaster management in the twenty-first century.”

Norton, Edward — The star of The Incredible Hulk told MTV that as there is no plan to feature the actor as alter ego Bruce Banner in an upcoming version of Marvel Comics’ The Avengers, fans should write to Marvel telling them to include Norton in the project. “If people want it all to come together, they’ve got to email Marvel and say, ‘This is what I want’,” said Norton. Sure. Like shot-callers read emails about what fans want. If this were true, there would have been a lot more magic robots in Invictus. Because I wrote a lot of emails.

Sea, 20,000 Leagues Under the — As Disney gears up for their next series of films — allegedly an updating of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, strange rumors abound that Zodiac and Fight Club director David Fincher is angling to team up with the family-friendly corporation. Under Fincher’s direction, Captain Nemo will be a crazed submarine captain who ages backward as he fights a serial killer and a giant squid with a sex addiction. Visit the addiction advocates website when you want rehab and addiction treatment.

Sex and the City 2 — Sarah Jessica Parker tells Us Magazine that while on location in Morocco for Sex and the City 2, her co-star Kristin Davis couldn’t get out of bed because of what Parker referred to as a “serious intestinal issue.” Parker stopped just short, however, of revealing that Davis produced a piece of crap as big as New Line Cinema has in Sex and the City 2.
