Alec Baldwin Quits, Mel and Joe Feud, Ben Kingsley’s New Gig!
- I can’t lie, when I heard Ben Kingsley would be the baddie in the new Iron Man I was all “Oooooh my God Ben Kingsley will be playing Mandarin AND NOTHING HAS EVER BEEN MORE HILARIOUS TO ME!” but then all the media outlets were like “That will never happen because of how it is racist” and then I cried. We still don’t know who we’ll be. But he’ll be in it. I am praying it is as zombie Gandhi which is not a thing. [E!]
- It would be an exaggeration to say that watching a feud between Mel Gibson and Joe Eszterhas is like watching Hitler and Stalin bitchslap each other, but not by much. To that end, please go google their names and be innundated with articles about the best feud EVER. That said, Mel Gibson’s rants about John Lennon (deserved to die) and his ex (who he would like to do in the butt WHILE STABBING HER) are deeply, deeply, unsettling and maybe I should recite them all as a solo show? [TMZ]
- I worry that if I were ever a celebrity I would be like Alec Baldwin – incredibly talented but INCREDIBLY moody. To be fair – Baldwin is dealing with being stalked by this lady which can’t be pleasant. That said, it smacks of the melodramatic to loudly proclaim you will leave NBC because they outside your apartment covering this event given that you tweeted about it. To conclude I was very worried about even posting this because I think Baldwin is a gifted hunk and I would never wish to incur his wrath and also I completely understand his reaction but feel like maybe…chill…pill…Phil?
