“Lindsay Lohan was such a pro on the set of “Eastbound & Down” … its star Danny McBride wants to take her talents with him … to a show he’s developing for HBO.
Sources close to LL tell TMZ … while guest starring on “E&D” Danny — a.k.a. Kenny Powers — and LiLo really hit it off. Danny was so impressed with her work he had several serious talks with her on set about a new show. He wants her to star in it.
We’re told the show is being developed by McBride and his producing partner Jody Hill. It will be in the same comedic vein as “Eastbound” … but revolve around a high school.
Our sources say Lindsay loves the idea and is hoping it works out.”
Despite my thinly veiled contempt for TMZ, I believe the story and I hope it’s true. Everyone, including Oprah, are going out on such a limb to get her back on track. It would be great if she could pull out of this and prove herself as a reputable actress. Unlike the gossip rags who thrive from her relapses—I’m rooting for a Robert Downey Jr. success story.
I may actually have a real scoop to break. I love the movie “RockNRolla” passionately. There has always been promise of a sequel titled, “The Real RockNRollas”. All of us fans were hanging back for Ritchie to tire of making his blockbuster flicks and return back to the quirky gangster flick we all love so much.
Alas, all hope is lost. I was on Twitter a few days ago and decided to ask Idris Elba who played “Mumbles” in “RockNRolla” if there would ever be a sequel. To my surprise, he responded minutes later:
“no I don’t think so. Sorry”
I have to admit that while i was excited to finally have an answer, I am completely saddened that I’ll never be able to see anymore hijinx and tomfoolery from The Wild Bunch.
“Black Swan” is an amazing movie. Tragic, well-acted, beautifully shot. Director Darren Aronofsky is always successful in making cinema that consistently haunts me. I was a 12th grader when I first saw “Requiem for a Dream”. When the movie ended, I went to bed. There was nothing I could do afterwards, it shook me to my core. The rawness of drug addiction, broken childhoods, and loneliness was too much for my immature 17 year old spirit.
Then 2 years ago, I drug myself to my local indie theater and saw “The Wrestler”. Afterwards I drove home and went to bed. At 25, I wasn;t ready for the grittiness of Randy the Ram’s world. The idea that your dreams may not come true and that you could indeed grow old still waiting to make a mark, was captured in a way that felt very real. Too real.
I think that’s what I love the best about Aronofsky. He manages to showcase multi-dimensional characters trapped in situations that seem much too real. The young friends who fall victim to drug abuse, poverty and horrid childhoods. The perfectionist ballerina who unravels because of her own self doubt. The old weary wrestler willing to sacrifice his life for one last shot. The possibility of these people and their situations coexisting in my world, in reality, makes every character study Aronofsky brings to life more haunting and effective than any film released by his peers.
