The Entertation Index: November 2

November 2, 2010

Chili Peppers, Red Hot — During a recent interview in Spin Magazine, Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer Chad Smith let it slide that the band’s next album may have a distinctly African influence, as many of the band’s members recently returned from a trip to Nigeria and Ethiopia. So get ready to have even more new-millennium Red Hot Chili Peppers news and music affect your life in no way whatsoever.

Disturbia — A legal battle continues to brew in the Los Angeles County Superior Court over whether the 2007 Shia LeBeouf  movie Disturbia is an infringement on the copyright of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller Rear Window. The legal party most interested in the outcome of this case, however, are the producers of 1988’s Vice Versa, who have been feeling the producers of 1987’s Like Father Like Son breathing down their necks for quite some time now.

Movies, United States of –– Last week a Reddit contributor assigned a movie to every state in the Union. Check it out and feel super-cool if you’re Massachusetts (The Departed) or Nevada (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), kinda disappointed if you live in Kansas (Twister) or Nebraska (Children of the Corn), and just plain depressed if you live in Georgia (Deliverance) or Ohio (Gummo).

Sheen, Charlie — Sources tell People Magazine that actor Charlie Sheen and his current wife Brooke Mueller, who have been married since 2008, will be divorcing. Allegedly, Mueller just doesn’t cower under a hotel table the way she used to during the “salad days.”

Spider-Man — Actor Kevin Aubin, a dancer who doubles as superhero Spider-Man in the soon-opening musical Spider-Man: Turn Off  the Dark, allegedly suffered injuries on-set last week when, while playing the webslinger, Aubin broke both his wrists during an acrobatic slingshot maneuver. Needless to say, this came as delightful news to the actor playing Doctor Octopus.
