Here Are Some Afternoon Links!

  • This Star Wars fan raised $12,000 to save Luke Skywalker’s home in a remote area of Tunisia. What have YOU ever done for Star Wars? Your favorite movie? That you owe EVERYTHING to? -MarySue
  • Almost only a month until new Breaking Bad episodes are on TV! Kind of! In order to celebrate, here is an interview with Bryan Cranston about Breaking Bad, and then mostly Total Recall. Great. -Hollywood
  • Uhoh! The new Greta Gerwig movie for girls, Lola Versus, is not getting great reviews. And it’s because of men? Men are giving it lots of bad reviews and now no one is seeing it, or something. I don’t know! Figure it out! -Gawker
  • Here’s an interview with Kurt Braunohler about his new IFC show, Bunk, and about his comedic partnership with Kristen Schaal. What a treat! -AVClub
  • Andy Samberg is going to be in a six-part comedy series on the BBC, called Cuckoo. Want to read about it? Here you go, if you want to! -TheHollywoodReporter
  • Oh wow, look at how cute Jack Black was as a child in this Atari game commercial. He kind of looks like Lindsay Lohan on a very good day, except a boy. Or something! Look! -HyperVocal
  • Here’s a letter from Gene Wilder to Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory director Mel Stuart, giving some notes he has on the Willy Wonka costume. Oh, great! Lots of nice things today. Great link list. -FilmDrunk
  • Ahhh, you guys! Charlize Theron cut all of her hair off! And she’s still beautiful! Don’t you wish that you could cut all of your hair off and still be beautiful? Not that you’d do it? But because you’d like to have the option? -Dlisted
  • Has anyone watched Bunheads? As a very big Gilmore Girls fan, I have to say I am hesitant, because also I watched Gilmore Girls recently and kind of didn’t really like it as much as I did when I was a child, if you can even believe it. But. Have you watched it? The Week watched it! -TheWeek
