    I can’t get over how rough and old David Gandy looks. Sure, he’s pretty, but he looks like he’s a pretty 50, not a pretty 34.

  2. Dawn says:

    I am a fan of this guy and it is all because of P&R. I wish him and his wife much success in their careers and just life in general. They always seem to be such a nice grounded couple or at least I like telling myself that!

  3. 'p'enny says:

    This film looks completely bonkers. I actually think it’s going to be brilliant, it’s going to be a breath of fresh air compared to Avengers. Roll on August.

    It screams to me Farscape meets Firefly :-D

    I’m going with Ben Affleck/Jennifer Garner for the blind on Lainey. Who was the HW player though? It wasn’t Cruise was it?

    And the Kristen Wiig/Harry Styles just made my afternoon.

    • starrywonder says:

      I think the guy they tried to set her up with was Cruise but the heavyweight can’t be Harvey Weinstein since Ben is still working with him…I am wondering who that is.

    • Marty says:

      Has to be a producer to have that kind of power.

    • KBTX says:

      Spielberg? They worked together in Minority Report right around when Cruise would’ve been single after the Kidman divorce. The blind says the Hollywood player was up for the same thing, which Spielberg was for Lincoln, while Affleck was snubbed for Best Director. Ultimately he couldn’t control the outcome because Argo won Best Picture.

      • starrywonder says:

        Ahhh yeah it could be Speilberg! He is actually friends with Tom Cruise’s crazy butt. They did War of the Worlds together.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yeah, but wasn’t that when Lifts was HEAVY into the Scientology and not shy about it? I seem to remember reading something about Steven (my future director husband) getting really pissed off because Lifts was too busy promoting Scientology, instead of the movie.



        It says in the second article (linked by CB) that Steven was telling Lifts about this therapist that was really great, etc—and then shortly after a bunch of Scientologists went all Westboro Church outside of the therapists office.

        So I don’t think they’re friendly. On an sorta OT note, I am SO GLAD he kicked that douchey Shia to the curb. ‘When you drop the ball, you drop the ball. I’m going to have to talk to Steven about this later’…WHATEVER bitch.

        EDIT: Also, that was the couch jumping era.

      • Bridget says:

        If he were more of a heavyweight (or had a movie in the race last year), I would guess JJ Abrams as the producer. He and Garner obviously had a good professional relationship for a time, and the movie that Cruise ‘auditioned’ ladies for was MI 3, which was an Abrams movie – and was Garner at some point on the shortlist for one of the roles? But the blind implies that she audited, hence the revealing of way too many secrets. I’m definitely curious who the producer was, since the 2 biggest producers in last year’s race were Spielberg and Weinstein.

      • Bridget says:

        The more that I think about it, the more Spielberg makes sense. The Katie Holmes stuff started with War Of The Worlds promo, and Garner would have known Spielberg since she had a small part in Catch Me If You Can (but it was when she was already an up and comer, so he would have definitely known her. Can’t you picture Jennifer Garner and Katie Holmes being on the same list? You can be she was at least considered for for MI3. And this was when Cruise was bringing all his Scientology people on his dates/meetings/setups – remember the ScarJo story about how she practically ran out of that room?

      • blue marie says:

        I love this answer. I never would have guessed Spielberg, so thanks ladies!

      • JaDeRu says:

        Affleck did beat Spielberg at the Directors Guild that year so may be some bad blood. I think Spielberg would have bristled at that more than Jennifer refusing Tom Cruise a date.
        Wait a minute…I don’t even like blinds!!
        *quickly shuffles out of room*

      • Bridget says:

        It would even make sense why Spielberg would hold a grudge – that War of the Worlds press tour was a DISASTER and the whole Katie Holmes ‘romance’ was a disaster from beginning to end. It wasn’t the runaway hit Cruise and Spielberg hoped it would be, very much because of the fact that Cruise went off the deep end, and then considering the way Garner has rehabbed Affleck’s reputation, I could see how there was some bitterness that she completely walked away from Cruise, especially when she would have been the junior party. Plus, I bet that Steven Spielberg simply doesn’t hear ‘no’ very often.

      • starrywonder says:

        @Virgilia yeah I remember that Cruise brought COS materials to work on the set of War of the Worlds but it was very hands off. Stephen blamed the failure of the movie on Tom Cruise later on I think (since couch jumping and the glib interview occurred before the premiere I think?

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      Am I the only one who wants to know what the wildlife gift was??! I wonder if they had to do a motorcycle test ride too? And am I reading it wrong or it was something iffy about the robowife that busted the deal? I feel like in say 30 years someone is going to write an amazing tell all when they don’t give a crap who they offend anymore, like Bette Davis did. I hope I’m still around for it!

    • Lucy2 says:

      I agree it’s Garner/Affleck, and Cruise- I remember hearing the “wildlife gift” story about him years ago when that all went down.
      Not sure about the other person- It might be something behind the scenes guy that we’re not aware of?

  5. dizzylucy says:

    That movie looks weird, but funny.
    If anyone isn’t familiar with Chris from Parks & Rec, you’re missing out – he’s hilarious. I’m glad to see him getting some big film roles.

  6. Sullivan says:

    Wait… Julia Roberts’ mother has cancer? Geez, when it rains, it pours.

  7. Dommy Dearest says:


    Thor 2 comes out next week. Captain America: Winter Soldier comes out in April and then GUARDIANS! Rocket Raccoon is my favorite!

  8. lunchcoma says:

    Apparently I’ve completely missed out on the Chris Pratt thing. I was talking about the Guardians casting with my gaming buddies and everyone was shocked that I was only vaguely aware of who he was. Then they listed his credits and I realized that he was on a show I didn’t watch, was in several movies I avoided or didn’t bother to see, and…oh, then I got it…was in Zero Dark Thirty, where he was very good indeed.

    Anyway, he’s not my usual type but he’s a real cutie and seems very charming. I’ll be keeping an eye on him in the future.

  9. Kiddo says:

    From the links: I feel sorry for Julia Roberts’ mother. She lost a child and is battling cancer at the same time. That is awful.

  10. Stephanie says:

    In that trailer, when the guy says “Who are you?” I half expected him to say, “Burt Macklin, FBI.” LOL.

    Love P&R!

  11. Corrie says:

    Every time I see him (and he’s not memorable) i think Meh! Trailer is Meh!

  12. Sunlily says:

    I’m there for the Raccoon. I love Chris Pratt. My body is ready.

  13. ashley says:

    Yes!!! I’m ready!!! The raccoon is everything!

  14. Mo says:

    This looks like fun. I love Chris Pratt, but not as much as I love Nick Offerman. Both funny, funny men. Amy Poehler knows how to pick talent.

  15. SonjaMarmeladova says:

    Who would have thought that he would be the break out star of Everwood? I really loved Bright and Hannah.

  16. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Loved Everwood! Love him in Parks &Rec, happy he is getting a shot at big recognition, this film looks fun.
