Who Should Play the Demented Industrialist?
The Green Goblin wasn't the first Spider-Man villain and he's not the most powerful, but the colorful character has become Spidey's signature nemesis over the years, appearing in just about every board game, video game, and animated series based upon the wall-crawler's exploits, as well as featuring prominently in Sam Raimi's trilogy (played with great aplomb by Willem Dafoe). Norman Osborn, the wealthy industrialist who first took on the mantle of the Green Goblin, did not figure prominently in this summer's The Amazing Spider-Man, but director Marc Webb laid the groundwork for his big screen return, setting up Osborn's company, Oscorp, as the manufacturer of the biotech that inadvertently created both Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and the Lizard (Rhys Ifans) and also inserting a tag scene at the end that shows a mysterious figure that may or may not be Norman Osborn.
While most speculate that Electro will be the primary villain in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 because of the Electro-ish lightning seen in the credits, the return of Norman Osborn and the Green Goblin are inevitable, especially in light of the recent news that Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) will likely have "a very small part" in ASM2 as Peter's other major love interest, Mary Jane Watson, and that Sony intends to "build to the classic 'Death of Gwen Stacy' story" that saw the Green Goblin killing Peter's high school sweetheart. Help us choose the new Green Goblin: Who do you think has the drive and determination to play a billionaire industrialist willing to experiment on himself to save his own life?

Bradley Cooper seems attracted to playing characters who look for shortcuts to success. In Limitless (2011), Cooper played a struggling writer named Eddie who takes experimental mind-enhancing pills that allow him to not only complete his novel in a matter of days, but find financial success beyond his wildest dreams. In his new movie, The Words, Cooper plays a struggling writer named Rory who finds a brilliant manuscript and passes it off as his own, earning him the fame and success he has always craved.
Of course, there's always a price to pay for taking shortcuts. In Limitless, the success Eddie finds at the bottom of a pill bottle attracts the attention of nefarious characters who will stop at nothing to possess his secret. Similarly, in The Words, the success of Rory's novel forces the original author of the manuscipt (Jeremy Irons) out of the shadows to confront Rory with the truth about the lie he has been living.

CBS and Warner Bros. have shut down production of the hit comedy Two and a Half Men after Charlie Sheen's incendiary and ridiculously entertaining radio show rant yesterday. Sheen called Men executive producer Chuck Lorre a "turd," "clown," and a "charlatan," and said Lorre's show was a "tin can" that he magically turned to "pure gold." He also called Alcoholics Anonymous a "bootleg cult," referred to the women he parties with as "turds" and "losers," and called Thomas Jefferson a "p***y."
After learning production was halted, Sheen sent an open letter to TMZ that is even more colorful than his on-air comments, calling Lorre a "contaminated little maggot" and an "earthworm" he defeated with his words, "imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists." Sheen then challenged Lorre to a fight and said, "If he wins, then he can leave MY show!"
The outburst may cost Sheen a role in Major League 3, with James G. Robinson — CEO of Morgan Creek Productions — comparing him to Lindsay Lohan and telling TMZ, "I'm not going to risk putting Charlie in the movie if he continues messing up." According to Sheen, that would be a mistake. As part of his rant he discussed Major League 3 and again used the t-word. "If they want me in it, it's a smash, and if they don't, it's a turd opening on a tug boat."
Finally, RadarOnline reports Sheen is already leaving CBS for HBO for a show called Sheen's Corner that would pay the star $5M per episode.
Sharon Stone is seeking a restraining order against Bradly Gooden, who insists his name is Bobby Joe Clinton, son of Hillary Clinton, and that he's an FBI agent and wrote the script for The King's Speech when he was just 2 years old. Gooden had broken into Stone's house and claimed it was his, a gift given to him by Hillary. In an interview with Piers Morgan, Stone did not discuss the stalker, but insisted she has only been married twice, not three times as widely reported.
Miley Cyrus has refused to comment on dad Billy Ray's candid remarks about his family, but friends tell People Miley is "upset" and "very hurt and angry."
Jeremy Irons has just become The Rundown's favorite actor, saying he is skipping the Oscars to stay home to smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol. The Academy Award-winning actor told Jimmy Fallon it's much more fun watching at home, and "this way I can smoke and drink and have a really good time." Posted 02.25.11 by reelz
