Barack Obama is a wizard. But even sorcerers covet the sort of powers that come only from radioactive spider bites, exposure to gamma rays, and accidentally drinking “super-plastic fluid.” So, which unusual ability does the president want to add to his repertoire? Let’s go to the audio tape:
Tag: Apropos of Nothing (71-80 of 529)
Robert Pattinson has been fairly tight-lipped about his relationship with Kristen Stewart throughout his Cosmopolis press tour — but this photo, taken at last night’s TimesTalk with RPattz and David Cronenberg, indicates that the Twilight star might be entering a new era of openness. The pic shows Pattinson at the event, sporting a backwards cap, a neutral expression — and a fly that’s unmistakably unzipped. That’s got to be an “OMG!” on the Blush-O-Meter. Let’s take a closer look:
Sorry, Matt Damon!
Jimmy Kimmel is engaged to Molly McNearney, a co-head writer of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, People reports. The couple have been together since 2009. Prior to that, the comedian dated Sarah Silverman.
Kimmel has been a busy guy recently. In addition to his show, he will also host the Primetime Emmy Awards September 23.

Get ready to update your college papers and work emails — “F-bomb” is now Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary official.
The dictionary giant teased its list of new additions (usually about 100 a year) and “F-bomb” made the cut. Who can you thank? Kory Stamper, an associate editor for Merriam-Webster, said the company traced the word back to 1988, when New York Mets catcher Gary Carter mentioned in an interview that he had given them up. Recent political discourse had also brought the term mainstream, with Dick Cheney dropping an “F-bomb” on the Senate floor in 2004, and Vice President Joe Biden trotting it out in 2010. “It’s a word that is very visually evocative,” Stamper told The AP. “It’s not just the F-word. It’s F-bomb. You know that it’s going to cause a lot of consternation and possible damage.” READ FULL STORY
Avery Jessup would not approve of this silliness.
Elizabeth Banks will appear on IFC’s Comedy Bang! Bang! this Friday, and in a just-released clip, it’s clear the Hunger Games star was down to have some fun. Watch Banks sing a seemingly improvised song about the wonder of living in a Lincoln Log house (who hasn’t wished for that?!) and try — and fail — not to get distracted by host/piano player Reggie Watts.

Jason Biggs’ “unreleased Magic Mike audition tape” has surfaced on YouTube. Watch the NSFW video below. Apparently he read for Matthew McConaughey’s role (not really) and performed two of Dallas’ most memorable scenes — the opening “no, no, no, no, no” monologue and the dance tutorial. If you just want to see him strip to Ginuwine’s “Pony,” jump to 2:53. Spoiler: There is a thong involved. READ FULL STORY
If you go see Magic Mike this weekend, there’s a fair chance after it’s over you’re going to need to see some more stripping, stat.
Step one: Start planning a New York trip with your girlfriends, because Magic Mike may be Broadway-bound.
Magic Mike screenwriter Reid Carolin told USA Today that mini-bombshell at the premiere of the film earlier this week. “We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story,” said Carolin. “More of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story. I’m almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it’s the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show.” READ FULL STORY
After the news that Ann Curry was on her way out on the Today show broke last night, some suspected Curry might not show up this morning. She did, and her impending exit wasn’t mentioned at all. Well, besides the completely insensitive scroll that read, “HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW.” The phrase was referencing Steve Carell’s new movie, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, but it still has to sting. Whoops.
MediaBistro first noticed the goof.
It’s the month of the male stripper.
Joey Lawrence, whom — depending on how old you are — you remember from Blossom, Jumping Ship or Melissa & Joey, will be joining the legendary Chippendales in Las Vegas.
Presumably devastated he wasn’t able to appear in stripper movie Magic Mike, Lawrence — who’s not fond of wearing a shirt on Melissa & Joey either — is fulfilling his stripper needs with a stint in the famous show. But the early nineties nostalgia lovers among us have to act fast — Lawrence will only appear as a special limited engagement until June 24.
There’s no video of his performance available yet, so only time will tell if Lawrence can compete with the all-time great bowtie dancers like Chris Farley.
