ReelzChannel Celebrity Rundown
The Hollywood Reporter is debunking rumors started by RadarOnline that Charlie Sheen has landed a new sitcom deal with Lionsgate Television that started a bidding war with other networks including TBS. True or not, one thing is for sure: Sheen's character on Two and a Half Men will be killed off when the show premieres in September, with producers (and Chuck Lorre) toying with the idea of Sheen dying after driving his car off a cliff.
Hugh Hefner has doubled down after being victimized by runaway bride Crystal Harris, adding November 2010 Playmate Shera Bechard as his second girlfriend. Here's the scoop on Bechard. Harris's best friend, Anna Sophia Berglund, is the other.
What are we missing with Jason Sudeikis? First he dated January Jones (OK, half the men in Hollywood have, but still) and now he's rumored to be getting serious with Eva Mendes.
Jake Gyllenhaal was seen turning on the charm with Olivia Wilde.
U.S. Representative Michelle Bachman announced her candidacy for president in Waterloo, Iowa, yesterday and confused actor John Wayne with serial killer John Wayne Gacy, telling a Fox news reporter, "Well what I want them all to know is that just like John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa... That's the kind of spirit that I have, too." Gacy indeed lived in Waterloo. The Duke was born in Winterset, 150 miles away. Posted 06.28.11 by reelz
Not only are Joel Coen and Ethan Coen remaking the 1969 Western True Grit, but The Dude may be cast in the role originally played by The Duke.
Variety reports that Jeff Bridges, who played El Duderino in the Coens' The Big Lebowski, is in talks to star as U.S. Marshall Rooster Cogburn, the role that won John Wayne an Oscar in the original. In the story, Cogburn aids a young girl in search of the man who killed her father. While the original movie was more focused on Cogburn's point of view, the Coens' take will apparently focus more on the girl, which is more in keeping with the novel of same name by Charles Portis.
The thought of remaking a Wayne movie with another actor in his role may seem like blasphemy, but hopefully we can trust the Coens to come up with a reimagining, not a rehash. And we imagine Bridges would make the role his own and not simply imitate all the trademark Wayne mannerisms.
No other details about the cast have leaked yet as the movie's still a long way from release. As of now, it's currently expected for 2011. Posted 09.11.09 by reelz
