Afternoon Delight: Emma Watson could be Cinderella, ScarJo is forming an all-girl band

 
 

Good afternoon and happy March! Where does the time go?

Happy birthday to Ke$ha!

Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right) and Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) star in the modern version of the 1897 book-turned-movie What Maise Knew. The story is about a child “shuffled back and forth between her two divorced parents every six months.” (Ugh, it sounds so depressing.) Moore plays Susanna, an aging rock star, and Skarsgård plays her second husband.

Check out the film’s poster below.

Rumor has it Emma Watson might be starring in Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Cinderella. If Watson signs on to be the title character she’ll have to go head to head with her Wicked Stepmother played by Cate Blanchett.

Zoe Saldana wants to play a “sexy something, like a princess from another planet” in JJ Abrams upcoming Star Wars film. I fully support this idea.

Rihanna is rocking a white tank top and a black leather mask (one of my favorite pairings) on one of her three covers for Elle UK’s April issue.

Clint “Talks to Chairs” Eastwood is one of over 100 Republicans that signed a brief yesterday asking the Supreme Court to allow same-sex couples to marry.

Out actress Fiona Shaw will star as Katherine Greenshaw in the TV movie Marple: Greenshaw’s Folly. The small screen film is adapted from two Agatha Christie short stories: “Greenshaw’s Folly” and “The Thumb Mark of St. Peter.”

Change.org is asking the masses to sign its petition to discourage singer Carly Rae Jepsen and the band Train from headlining the National (Boy) Scout Jamboree scheduled to take place in July. If this issue is important to you please sign the petition.

Britney Spears added her voice to the anti-bullying movement.


Anna Faris, Kristen Schaal, Andy Samberg and Neil Patrick Harris lend their voices to the animated comedy Cloudy with the Chance of Meatballs 2. I’ll only see this film if the meatballs are vegetarian.

Tina Fey has signed on to star in This is Where I Leave You alongside Jason Bateman.

Black Swan’s Natalie Portman will produce the film version of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I’m pretty sure the book is based on a true story.

Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) has taken her award-winning talents to the off-Broadway play The Madrid at the Manhattan Theatre Club’s City Center Stage I in New York.

Scarlett Johansson is forming an all-girl band. (This news might be the end of my marriage.) During a recent interview on Live With Kelly and Michael Johansson said, “We’re called the One and Only Singles. We’re kind of doing our Go-Gos thing!”

Speaking of Johansson what do you think of her new ad for Dolce & Gabbana makeup?

Below is a stellar parody of actress Lena Dunham auditioning for Zero Dark Thirty. Actress Chelsea Davison does a shockingly good impression of Dunham.

Diva magazine chatted it up with Heading Out star Sue Perkins.

Did you know out fitness guru/reality star Jackie Warner is the Wisk detergent “Sweat Ambassador”?

Video of the Day!

If you have some extra time today, watch this hour-long video where Senator Scott Dibble and Representative Karen Clark announce the introduction of a bill allowing same-sex marriage in Minnesota. “If approved by the legislature and signed by Governor Dayton, the measure would overturn current law, which recognizes only marriage between opposite sex couples.”

Have a great and safe weekend everyone!
