In the case of renowned filmmaker and occasional singer Madonna, she reportedly used business as the reason she texted her way through the New York premiere of "12 Years A Slave." However, as the New York Post's unimpeachable Page Six reported , the singer allegedly offered a further retort to someone who asked her to shush like a virgin and shut off her phone. She is said to have accused her accuser of being an "enslaver." Perhaps this was attempted wit. But how odd that she might choose such terminology. Some might offer that she seems to be something of a slave not to the rhythm, but to her BlackBerry. In retaliation, one theater owner has decided that she should no longer be enslaved by the confines of a movie theater. pics of Kim Kardashian The esteemed Alamo homepage Drafthouse movie theater organization has decided to ban Madonna until she apologizes for her material tendencies. As the Guardian reports , this banning may be merely symbolic. <br>Source: http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-57607461-71/madonna-banned-by-movie-theater-for-alleged-movie-texting/#!
At the end of The Scout, Steve Nebraska (after much drama) leads the New York Yankees to the World Series. In this particular fictional World Series, the Yankees are playing the St. Louis Cardinals. Now, we're down to the final out of Game 7 and, stepping up to the plate, is ... Ozzie Smith. Ozzie Smith is one of my favorite baseball players of all time. <br>Source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-ryan/the-dumbest-baseball-movie_b_4109604.html
Oct 15, 2013 11:38am (Photo Credit: Evan Agostini/AP Photo) With Charlie Hunnam bowing out of the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie this past weekend due to an immersive TV schedule, whats next for the female lead -Dakota Johnson? On Saturday, the studios behind the film, Universal Pictures and Focus Features, released a statementstating, The filmmakers of FIFTY SHADES OF GREY and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead. The statement continued that Hunnamdidnt have time to prepare for the role of Christian Greywhile also focusing on his show Sons of Anarchy. Read: Charlie Hunnam Drops out of Fifty Shades of Grey Movie But back in September after accepting the role, Hunnam, 33,suggested that he and Johnson, 24, who was cast as Anastasia Steele ,were the perfect match for the adaptation of the steamy book, especially in the eyes of director Sam Taylor-Johnson. We both suggested I do a reading with Dakota, who was[Taylor-Johnson's] favorite, Hunnam told reporters last month .As soon as we got in the room, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it. Theres just a tangible chemistry between us. It felt exciting and fun and weird and compelling. So, if it was the tangible chemistry between Johnson and Hunnam that locked theactors into dothe movie, does Hunnams departure mean Johnsons characterwill be recast as well? <br>Source: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2013/10/will-dakota-johnson-drop-out-of-fifty-shades-of-grey-movie/
He also doesn't mind movies about sexhis film "Moroccan Gigolos" http://parisrett4k.skyrock.com/3190180433-Kim-Kardashian-Does-She-Deserve-A-Star-On-The-Hollywood-Walk-Of-Fame.html was a comedy about three pals who prostitute themselves out to older women so that they can raise enough money to finance their sandwich shop. Arnaud described his character like this: "He takes the necessary steps Kim Kardashian exposed to get where he wants." Doesn't that sound very Christian Grey-like? Francois Arnaud is also perfect for the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie because he shares two very important traits with Christian: He can speak French and play the piano. It might seem like his chances of replacing Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey are pretty good, but the actor does have some stiff competition. Other actors being looked at include "The Fall" star Jamie Dornan, "True Blood" hottie Alexander Skarsgard, "Divergent" up-and-comer Theo James, and "Cemetery Junction" actor Christian Cooke. A lot of factors are going to decide the Christian Grey recast, so it's hard to determine who will ultimately walk away with the role. The actor who gets the part will need to have the right chemistry with Anastasia Steele actress Dakota Johnson, and he'll have to be comfortable with what the movie's screenplay requires them to do and say (it sounds like Charlie's troubles with the script played a part in his decision to walk away). <br>Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/fifty-shades-of-grey-movie-francois-arnaud-approached-for-christian-grey-role
