Beat this caption: 'When 28-year-old George Lucas first set out to make 'American Graffiti' in 1972...'

When 28-year-old George Lucas first set out to make American Graffiti in 1972, the only time he smiled during the five-week shoot was when Wolfman Jack made armpit noises.

Kenny Loggins admitted that “Playing With the Boys” was not the song that “Danger Zone” was, but he couldn’t help but grin every time that Top Gun check arrived.

Once Greg Evigan tried to shove Paul Reiser into oncoming traffic, there was no repairing that relationship and My Two Dads quickly sank.

When evidence surfaced that Stephen Colbert was really Yusef Islam who was really Cat Stevens who was really Steven Georgiou, Bill O’Reilly quickly labeled the disgraced comic a Pinhead.

These alt-captions for this old picture of Stephen Colbert(!) write themselves, but I know you’ve got better ones up your sleeve. Try and top each others’ witty comic stylings below.

'Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things': 5 Facial Expressions of Near-Terror on Monday's show!

favorite-thingsImage Credit: George Burns/Harpo ProductionsIt wasn’t OHHHH-VERRRRRRRR! On today’s Oprah, Ms. Thang delivered a message from on high (her metaphorical perch atop a pile of solid gold iPads) to announce to the studio audience that THEY TOO would be on the receiving end of Santa Winfrey’s sleighful of presents. First, she baited a lady in a hot pink blazer to admit how disappointed everyone probably was because they’d just seen those lucky bitches from the previous taping (that had happened just before theirs) pile out with tons of new stuff.

And then. [A single ornament rolls out.] What’s this? “I got an ornament!” [It begins to snow.] “Actually….it’s beginning to look a lot like….FAVORITE THI-IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINGS!” READ FULL STORY

Indonesian Obama fears assassination

It appears that President Barack Obama has his very own doppelgänger. A 34-year-old Indonesian man, Ilham Anas, shares an uncanny resemblance to our president. He looks like him. He smokes like him. He’s even a Muslim (Just kidding!). Anas, who says he enjoys being an Obama impersonator, often gets stopped on the street because of his looks. But it’s not all fun and games. With great power comes great responsibility, and Anas sometimes worries that the negative feelings toward America in Indonesia will lead to harm, and possibly assassination. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars' 200th episode: Which group of returning alumni was the most hilarious?

Last night marked the beginning of the 200th-episode celebration of Dancing With the Stars. What? It seems like the series just started! NOT. So many random crops of alumni turned up for this huge ABC event. There they were, in scattered patches of the liiiiiiiive crowd, at once funny, fascinating, intergalactic, and sad. They bothered to show up, so I thought I’d bother to screengrab them in all their return-to-Planet Mirrorballus glory! Judging on ridiculata standards and nothing else, look through the pics and vote in our totally unnecessary poll after the break. READ FULL STORY

'The Fighter': Watch the insane trailer that played during 'Mad Men'

Viewers of last night’s Mad Men season finale were treated to some majestically bizarre sights — how cute, the Draper kids are singing in French! But one of the most unexpected delights about the evening came during a commercial break, when we were treated to an eye-catching trailer for The Fighter, the upcoming boxing film starring Mark Wahlberg. The movie’s been a passion project of Wahlberg’s for years, and will be the first feature directed by David O. Russell since 2004’s I Heart Huckabees. The trailer is, well, insane: lots of overlapping dialogue and raw-looking footage. How raw? Amy Freaking Adams punches somebody. READ FULL STORY

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows': New posters let you look the main characters in the eyes

With 42 days left until the release of the highly anticipated Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, Warner Bros. has released seven new character posters to further promote the film. The posters are simple, dark, and totally striking, spotlighting one of the film’s seven major characters: Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint), Hermione (Emma Watson), Snape (Alan Rickman), Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter), Fenrir Greyback (Dave Legeno), and Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). (Collector’s item, anyone?) I was ridiculously excited to see this movie even before I saw these posters, but now I am beyond ready for Nov. 19th.

This entire poster series is visually stunning, and the extreme closeups show the intense emotion each character has in what will be one of the darkest films in the Harry Potter franchise. I’m not ready to accept that this film marks the beginning of the end, but these mature-looking photos (I see that facial scruff on Harry and Ron!) are a clear indicator that my three favorite Gryffindors are ready to move past Hogwarts and face the darkness of the world head on.

It’s great seeing each of these characters that we have come to love — or fear — over the course of the series take center stage in each of the seven posters. As much as I love Harry, I like seeing everyone get equal face time, as they’re all so integral to the story. As much as the Lord Voldemort — I mean, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named — poster freaks me out, I’ll admit I’m glad to see him sneering at me through my computer screen.

Excited yet?

Lisa Rinna reduces upper lip: Will she be the same soap-reality star to you?

Lisa-RinnaWhen you think Lisa Rinna, you may think Dancing With the Stars, Melrose Place or Days of Our Lives. But more than likely, when you hear the star’s name, you think lips. Thanks to a recent procedure, however, Rinna’s signature plumped-up pout, courtesy of a 1986 lip injection, is a thing of silicon past.

The actress and new star of TV Land’s Harry Loves Lisa, went under the knife in August, People reports, to reduce the size of her famously large upper lip after years of ridicule. The actress said: “I took a big hit for being honest. It gave everyone online permission to lambaste me. It hurt my feelings.”

Rinna, who’ll have to wait six months for a full recovery, also acknowledged that she didn’t want her lips to define her anymore. But much like game-changing surgeries of the past (think Jennifer Grey’s rhinoplasty), will she be the same Lisa Rinna to you? What other plastic surgeries have forever changed celebrities in your eyes?

Now you can be one degree from Bacon Kevin Bacon!

Bacon-Kevin-BaconImage Credit: J&D FoodsFall 2010 has brought forth an interesting trend where celebrities, fashion, and art all meat up. Weeks after Lady Gaga donned an all raw meat ensemble at the MTV VMAs, the latest celebrity to turn to protein is, fittingly enough, Kevin Bacon. A charity auction on eBay — all proceeds are going to Ashley’s Team, a not-for-profit organization with the mission to bring joy to childhood cancer patients — is offering a life-size bust of Kevin Bacon that has been constructed entirely out of (yep, you guessed it) bacon.

The 14-inch tall Bacon Kevin Bacon bust appears to be fashioned out of bacon bits, and its swoopy red hair makes him look more like Conan O’Brien than Kevin Bacon. Of course, the sculpture is not edible, but why would you want to eat your art? (Gaga’s dress, however, is being turned into jerky.) There are seven days left in the eBay auction — bids have already reached $510 — so if you are willing to pony up a minimum of $520, you can own this one-of-a-kind sculpture, much to the envy of all your friends.

What’s next? Jon Hamm in a Don Draper-esque suit made entirely out of ham? A sculpture of Meatloaf made out of meatloaf?

PopWatch Rewind Week 7: 'Alien 3'

ALIEN-3Image Credit: Everett CollectionBefore The Social Network, before Fight Club, before Se7en, David Fincher was a brilliant music video wunderkind trying to make the jump to a feature film career. So he set himself the impossible task of directing Alien 3 (usually stylized as Alien3, the derivative of which is 3Alien2). With little film experience, Ridley Scott and James Cameron’s big shoes to fill, and an intrusive studio that thought it could push him around, it’s no surprise that Fincher’s contribution was worse than what came before in the franchise — and what came after in his career. The result is like getting face-hugged for nearly two hours, and not in a good way.

Keith Staskiewicz: Alien 3: Great opening 30 seconds, not so great closing 113 and a half minutes.

Darren Franich: I wanted to like the movie because it so gleefully kills off everything and everyone people like about Aliens, but it doesn’t really give us anything in return. Besides lots of bald people with interchangeable space-British accents.

KS: The movie defines itself in the negative right from the start. At the end of Aliens, Ripley succeeded at kick-starting her maternal instincts by saving Newt, her surrogate daughter, and Michael Biehn, the makeshift husband. Before the opening credits of Alien 3 are even out, Newt and Biehn are both dead. Are we done with them? Nope, not by a long shot! First, we have to palpate their dead bodies to make sure they don’t have aliens in them. Then, cut them wide open, just to make really sure. And then, just to be really really sure, toss their bodies in a huge burning furnace. It’s like trying to get rid of space bedbugs.

DF: And then, just when you think Alien 3 is done tearing Aliens apart, it revives Bishop as a limbless, faceless, dripping-android-blood muppet. READ FULL STORY
