Here Are Some Afternoon Links!

It's Jason Segel's birthday! And he's "32"? Do you think Jason Segel is lying about his age? 32 seems awfully young. I would guess, if I were REALLY trying to get it right, 37. But then again celebrities ages are always surprising to me no matter what. But really, 32? Jason? Are you lying? -More »

Here Are Some Afternoon Links!

Brad Pitt is on the cover of Sports Illustrated and I just want to say that I haven't thought about the magazine Sports Illustrated in like 45 years and I can't believe it's still a magazine. -JustJared Kevin Dillon thinks Jane Lynch's Entourage joke was unfair, apparently. "E has had a longtime relationship.

Tommy Lee Jones is a very compelling actor who only gets more compelling with age, which means he's really compelling at this point (because of the being a million years old, especially in his face).

Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: Omar’s Coming, Omar’s Coming!

There's a good article in the New York Times today about the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

Aragorn Shuffled Through The Ash, Pushing The Cart Towards The Coast Of Isildur

The first image from the Viggo Moretnson adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road hit the internet today (Row Three via i09). It looks about right. I see layers of clothing, and Apocalyptic ash.
