Buzz Break: Introducing Captain Spork


· This is what would happen if Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto were to make love, conceive, have a son, and watch that son grow up to claim his birthright as the quarter-Vulcan Captain of the KFC Enterprise. Live long and prosper. [He Who Laughs]

· Speaking of future Star Trek plots, J.J. Abrams e-mailed Ain't It Cool News with an update. While the boys have "not had MEETING ONE about a sequel," he does confirm that he's been "talking to Jack Black about doing something," and there will be "shitload more lens flares."

· Here is Hugh Grant kicking paparazzi in the nuts.

· The author of the The Catcher in the Rye sequel that prompted a lawsuit from J.D. Salinger? It's Fredrick Colting, 32, of Sweden, who wrote 60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye under the pseudonym John David California. His previous efforts: The Macho Man's (Bad) Joke Book, The Erotic A-Z, and "a volume listing the 100 best heavy metal albums." Phony.

· Private Airbus A380 being developed for Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud: $488 Million. Ability to take a shvitz on your flight from L.A. to Dubai: Priceless $488 Million.

    I actually liked the lens flares. Dan Mindel (the cinematographer) purposely shot that way. It really does give the film a more "sense of wonder" work, because real life has flares.

    Mmmm, Pinto.

  • SunnydaZe says:

    In Grant's defense- the camera guy was wearing a t-shirt which read, "Please kick me in the balls".

  • Furious D says:

    1. Paramount's already working on a hybrid clone at their labs, so they can do sequels while only shelling out one paycheck.
    2. Abrams hasn't had a meeting because he's not in on the clone plan, yet.
    3. If you can't kick a paprazzi in the nuts, who can you kick in the nuts?
    4. Writing a sequel's nothing, I know JD Salinger's darkest secret: he's been writing Harlequin romance novels under the name "Giselle de Chastain" since the 1970s, plus Salinger's the creator of the "Truly Tasteless Joke Books."
    5. If you can't piss half a billion dollars on a private party plane to do things you would kill others for doing, what can you blow half a billion dollars on?
