Like Charlie Brown, Beaver Cleaver, and even Tom Sawyer before him, the most extraordinary thing about Doug Funnie was the fact that he wasn’t extraordinary at all. During his three years on Nickelodeon (and another three on Disney), Doug never got bitten by a radioactive spider or found an all-powerful amulet. He never stopped a speeding missile or solved a grisly murder — or even managed to grow a full head of hair. He was just a gawky 11-year-old boy growing up in the city of Bluffington (the Bumper Sticker Capital of the World!), playing with his dog Porkchop, eating Honker Burgers with his best pal Skeeter, and pining after the dreamy Patti Mayonnaise.

In the wake of PBS’ announcement of a Mr. Rogers next-generation spinoff featuring a descendant of Daniel Tiger, I set out to recall exactly who Daniel Tiger was by watching a few clips of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on YouTube. (Because that’s what the internet, and my work days, are for.) The show was not much like I remembered — the rhythm, dialogue, and messages seemed absolutely foreign to me. Do you ever go back and watch a children’s show after 20-25 years and it’s just completely different? And you think, wow, maybe I should be learning anew from this kiddie crap every day?

Over the weekend at the Television Critics Association press tour, writer-director Cameron Crowe — who was on hand to talk about his forthcoming Pearl Jam Twenty documentary, which will air on PBS Oct. 21 after a one-day theatrical release on Sept. 20 — was asked if he’d consider a sequel to his 1989 teen romantic comedy classic, Say Anything.
The short answer: Yes.
“It’s the only thing that I’ve written that I would consider doing that with,” Crowe said, according to HitFlix, indicating he could see John Cusack reprising the iconic Lloyd Dobler role. “I’ve thought about it from time to time and talked about it with John Cusack once and just said this is the only story that I kind of think there might be another chapter to that at some point.” READ FULL STORY
The Smurfs may not be getting the most Smurfing reviews, but we’re finding that that the blue comedy is difficult to ignore completely — we just like Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays too darn much!
So we sat down with the upbeat actors earlier this week to chat about The Smurfs, in which they play a married couple whose lives are thrown out of wack when an assortment of singing blue munchkins arrive in their apartment. Harris and Mays explained the complex process of shooting with the CGI creatures that weren’t really there, and they took a little time giving each other smurf names as well. Check out the video below:
TV makes me cry disproportionately more than real-life, so I was a little confused when the camera panned to tear-stained Lady Gaga after Marko’s performance last night, and I sat there with dry eyes. Don’t get me wrong. His performance was gorgeous and very touching, but tear-worthy? I’m not so sure.
I’m sure the song — Jeff Buckley’s “I Know It’s Over” — played a major part in the weeping effect the piece had on The Gaga. It’s a hauntingly lovely tune that was a perfect fit for the message of the dance. But is my heart going cold? Did the performance move you to tears, too? Or were last night’s tears something for the Overreaction Files? Also, do you think the fly on Lady Gaga’s hat was attracted to her because she perpetually smells like meat or did it just want a hug? Watch the clip. READ FULL STORY
Giant metal rainbow to bring 'the sense of optimism' closer to Los Angeles, but still just out of reach
The U.S. has finally decided to do something about the St. Louis Arch’s fatal flaw: not being colorful enough. Congratulations, country! Sony Pictures has obtained approval to construct a 94-by-188-foot rainbow near an entrance to its studio lot. Built to fulfill Culver City’s Art in Public Places requirement, the $1.5 million structure will be a nod to the rainbow imagined in The Wizard of Oz — which filmed there – but more generally, it will serve to infuse people with “the sense of optimism and well-being associated with rainbows in general.” Shiny, happy, people, laughing. They’ll be everywhere! Until they glance away and realize that real rainbows aren’t real and that’s not a jauntily jigging leprechaun on the other side of the artificial rainbow. It’s a bum.

Forget the Oscars: the Marine Corps Ball has quickly turned into this year’s A-list event. Now that Friends With Benefits co-stars Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake have both said yes to the Marines who invited them to the dance, word has clearly gotten around: If you ask a celebrity out on YouTube, they will go with you. Which is exactly what Sgt. Ray Lewis (like the football player!) did by asking Betty White to attend the Ball with him. His reasons for asking the lovable Hot in Cleveland star were certainly justified (“She’s funny, she’s sweet, she’s mature. She’s the all-around perfect woman”), but even with a two-minute vid, he didn’t give it quite the same pizazz that Sgt. Scott Moore (Kunis’ date) and Sgt. Kelsey De Santis (Timberlake’s date) did with their posts. (C’mon, Betty deserves more than a, “So… call me”!) Still, you have to wonder, who will be the first star that’s going to say no? Somebody sort of has to at some point, right? Or, will celebrities soon be making video pleas to the marines asking them out?
UPDATE: Betty White released a statement regarding Sgt. Ray Lewis’ request which read, “I am deeply flattered and truly appreciate the invitation, as everyone knows I love a man in uniform, but unfortunately I cannot accept, as I will be taping an episode of Hot In Cleveland. Love, Betty White.”
Who do you think will be the next star asked to attend the Marines Corps Ball, PopWatchers? My money’s on Jon Hamm. (In other news, I just joined the Marines in order to ask Jon Hamm to the ball!) Watch the full clip of Sgt. Ray Lewis’ date request to Betty White below: READ FULL STORY
Victoria and David Beckham have posted pictures of their week-old baby Harper Seven to Facebook (there’s one of Posh, too) and the Internet is flipping out. Here’s Becks transmitting one of his secrets about how to look hot for the camera to his new spawn via an adorable nose-to-nose download. It’s never too early to start succeeding in life. Take it from me, Baby Harper. I’m posting this. On a Sunday!
The floodgates are officially open. If you’re in the military, a celebrity will accompany you to the sock hop. Following his Friends With Benefits co-star Mila Kunis, who agreed to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore, Justin Timberlake accepted an invitation from servicewoman Kelsey De Santis (watch it here) while at a press conference for the film. He’ll go…provided his schedule will allow it. He said yes! It’s just that yes means maybe sometimes. Also: No means no, and benevolent acts of dateness means that perhaps someone’s got a big movie coming out! We’ll be sure to brief you daily about where Justin Timberlake might be on Nov. 12.
Ha! When asked why he made a military woman squeal, Timberlake said, “I don’t get asked out. Ever. So I was very flattered by that.” Whatever, Justin Timberlake!
Mila Kunis IS attending the Marine Corps Ball after all. National crisis averted.
