The Entertation Index: August 9

August 9, 2010

Bernsen, Corbin – The Psych actor was slightly injured in a bar brawl near Akron, OH, where he is shooting a film about the All-American Soap Box Derby called 25 Hill.  This will end up being the most exciting thing about the movie.

Canyon, The Grand – An 18-year-old French tourist fell 75 feet into the Grand Canyon and survived with minor injuries.  That just goes to show you that if you want to come over here and be all French and stuff, the Yoonited States will eat you up and spit you out.  America, fuck yeah!

Gigs, First Paid – The folks at Gawker, either on their own or with tips from readers, have dredged up some early commercials from TBTS favorites Jane Lynch and Tina Fey.  Here’s Lynch in a Frosted Flakes commercial and Fey in a regional bank ad.

Best political capital I ever spent!

Kid, Billy TheEntertainment Weekly asks if New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson’s potential pardon of Billy The Kid on the 20th anniversary of Young Guns II is a coincidence.   We would have said yes, but it just so happens that 2008 Poet Laureate Kay Ryan’s pardon of Josiah Gordon “Doc” Scurlock’s horrible poetry coincided with the 20th anniversary of Young Guns.

Right, The Price Is – Shane Stirling claims she lost her job as model on the show after she became pregnant because it was “dangerous” and a “liability.”  Even on a show where dozens of hikers have fallen to their deaths and thousands of people have nearly been crushed by a giant spinning wheel, it seems a stretch that standing in front of signs with numbers on them would be dangerous.

SnookiJersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has decided to cut back on her drinking after being arrested for disorderly conduct and disappointing her father.  That’s nice in theory, Snooki, but half of a huge number is still a huge number.
