Stuff under cuts is short. And yes, second entry of the day. WHUT?!
1.) Chris Pine is rumored to be taking over as Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan. I posted about it on ontd_startrek
(apologies to those flisters on that comm who are experiencing crossposting difficulties, but I'M REALLY EFFING THRILLED ABOUT THIS!) Paramount confirmed it in Variety
and Yahoo! News had it on their front page yesterday, so obviously it's true. Obviously. (I'M BEING WILDLY OPTIMISTIC HERE. HUMOR ME.) That would be amazing- not only would it wipe the slate clean of all that Affleck-fail (he really needs to stick with directing) but now is the time for some Jack Ryan. He's the thinking Bond- a political animal with patriotic sensibilities, a love of family, etc. but not annoying in an overwrought Republican way. Frankly with all the shit going on in the world it's time he came back. I'm hoping Pine gets to play Ryan Jr. and they do "The Teeth of the Tiger". Actually, I don't care- any
Ryan will do. ANY.
2.) Note to the folks who make "Glee"- please start making episodes that last for several days, because a mere 42 minutes cannot contain the awesomeness. Last night's episode? GENIUS. Cannot wait for next week and have pre-ordered the first season on DVD. (Cast was apparently in DC recently- WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS???) ( I like minorities so much I'm thinking of moving to California to become one! )
3.) Oh, TVD, you're like a Twinkie. One that's been made from scratch by the Barefoot Contessa or something. I want to wave you off as fluff, but the fluff is so so
good. Watched "You're Undead to Me" last Sunday while recovering from hellride.( It didn't have to be this way. )
Random, but I had no idea the CW has a music page for their shows. Have you seen this? IT'S AWESOME.
4.) Reading "Touch of Dead"- I love the idea that CHarris wrote fanfic for her own series. :D
