Buzz Break: Adventures in Benchpressing


· Elisabeth Shue is racing New Moon's Taylor Lautner for the coveted, vaguely unsettling prize of "Most Whoa-Inducing Biceps."

· First it happened to Liam Hemsworth, and now Brittany Murphy has been rewritten out of The Expendables. It seems the casting director is taking the title rather literally.

· Here's a novel conclusion from HuffPo's Scott Mendelson: "Sad to say, but the death of [John] Travolta's son is nothing but good news for the financial success of his latest picture." Thanks, asshole!

· Jay Leno's farewell from The Tonight Show delivered the program its highest ratings...since March. Kinda ouch? But hey, it was the highest-rated Friday edition ever! So that's something.

· Sandra Bullock on romantic comedies: "They are terrible, they are bad. They are not funny...and most of the time they are not romantic. So they shouldn't be called a romantic comedy." Damn, Sandy -- we were really hoping to attach you to The Socialite And The Guy With The Real Job.

    1. Sweet mother of monkeys, she could kick some serious ass with those. And her arms are pretty big too.
    2. Hopefully by the end of production there will be absolutely no one left in that movie.
    3. Shouldn't he be counting American Idol ballots instead of making predictions based on the death of children?
    4. A high point is a high point. Especially since NBC's ratings as a network are around those they had when only 10 people had televisions, and CBS had better shows.
    5. Amen Sister Sandra, Amen!!

    "You liked Leaving Las Vegas, punk? Well you know what won't be leaving? The pain when these guns hit your head! Just call me City of Paingels. You like Palmetto? Well wait till my palm-met-o-your face, bitch! The only Hollow Man I see is you, and you're going to break like glass when the Shue gets done with you..."

  • Read the whole Huff Post article first. Don't shoot the messenger.

  • gwendemarco says:

    So after Sandy's made $100 mil, she admits this? Even bleach couldn't erase her tour de force diarrhea in an RV scene in Two Weeks Notice.

  • Inhaler says:

    Elisabeth Shue is the new Linda Hamilton.

  • sweetbiscuit says:

    Yes, Sandra, by all means, just change the name of the genre. That will make it all better.

  • MALONE says:

    Shue gets a lifetime pass for playing herself in HAMLET 2. Hi-larious.
