  • Sharon Stone will play the mother of Mary in Sweet Baby Jesus. Fitting, because “Sweet baby Jesus!” was exactly the phrase I used upon seeing Basic Instinct 2. [Deadline]
  • This November, HBO will premiere Tracy Morgan: Black and Blue, a stand-up special from the 30 Rock star. (Filming will take place at the Apollo Theatre Sept. 24 and 25.) “The special is going to be all the elements: fire, water, earth, air, the comedy bender, the avatar of comedy experience,” the comedian said in a press release. We were hoping for A Blaffair to Rememblack, but we’ll settle for Blavatar.
  • Speaking of, Nickelodeon has scheduled The Legend of Korra — the network’s spin-off of Avatar: The Last Airbender — for 2011. Because we all need one big wave from the Water Tribe to help us wash this from our memory. [Associated Press]

      I’m still waiting for “Jefferson” to come out. (“Get me off this horse!”)

  • JACK HART

    tracy morgan is not funny, i’m suprised that he is still on 30 Rock.

    • Henry

      I agree. I feel frightened for his mental health every time I see him.

      • Gil

        Why? I’m pretty sure that being zany isn’t dangerous.

    • Brian

      I think Tracy Morgan is hlarious. He’s essential on 30 Rock. You do realize that saying things like “[So-and-so] isn’t funny” is completely stupid, right? Humor is subjective. For instance, d-bags find Dane Cook’s stand up hilarious. I don’t. You don’t find Tracy Morgan funny. I do. See?

  • Caroline
