Glenn Beck passionately reviews Broadway's 'Spider-Man': 'This is better than Wicked!'

Glenn-Beck-SpidermanImage Credit: Fox; Jacob CohlFox News personality Glenn Beck is never shy about serving up his opinion about most topics — that’s for dang sure — but this morning on his radio show, The Glenn Beck Program, he started in very passionately on a topic that we’ve rarely heard him be passionate about before: the theater. Specifically, Broadway’s new musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, which has been berdevilled with injuries and other problems during its previews. The somewhat surprising part? Beck absolutely loved the show, which has been largely panned by early reviewers. (Technically, no official reviews of Spider-Man are supposed to appear until the show’s official opening, which has been moved back twice but is currently slated for Feb. 7.) “This is better than Wicked!” Beck said, referencing the much-lauded Broadway show that was an instant success when it debuted in 2003. “This is much better than Wicked.”

'Harry Potter' stars practice their American accents, charm us all

I’m always pleasantly surprised when actors play along with off-the-wall interview angles, but after answering “How does it feel to be done with filming Harry Potter?” for the millionth time, it makes sense that the good-humored Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1 stars would be game to test their American accents with MTV. Watch the video below. I got slightly distracted by Daniel Radcliffe’s heavage (hairy!) and how great that color of blue looked on him, but I was focused enough on what he was saying to chuckle when he asked, “Do I have to say this one?” before pronouncing “Glenn Beck.” Emma Watson proves she is, in fact, a very smart young lady when she balks at saying, “Twilight blows,” because it could be a trick (and used against her in the wrong hands). Rupert Grint’s enthusiasm for “Charlie Sheen” is adorable. And Tom Felton charms with improvisation.  READ FULL STORY

Stephen Colbert being courted for Restoring Truthiness rally

Stephen-ColbertIs Stephen Colbert brave enough to stand in the same spot where Glenn Beck spoke about American freedom just over one week ago? Well, not the same spot, but a few steps lower? That’s what some 32,000 Facebook users are aiming to do with a new grassroots campaign to get the Colbert Report host to emcee a “Restoring Truthiness” rally, designed as a counterpoint to Glenn Beck’s Aug. 28 “Restoring Honor” rally.

The whole thing started with a post on social news site Reddit and has expanded to include a Facebook page and web site touting Oct. 10, 2010 as the target date and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., where Beck’s rally took place, as the chosen venue. The idea is to fundraise and sell merchandise to cover costs, and donate the remaining money to a charity of Colbert’s choice, or one chosen by vote. READ FULL STORY

News Corp's $1 million donation to RGA: Jonstewartissa Explains It All

I’m so glad Jon Stewart conjured up the visual aids to help explain News Corp’s $1million donation to the Republican Governors Association on last night’s Daily Show. I usually watch Glenn Beck bounce off the invisible walls surrounding his chalkboard if I need to understand high-concept political gobbledygook. But Stewart makes things even easier! Video after the break. READ FULL STORY
