Here's a fun game! Try to imagine Angelina Jolie in the "Sex and the City" movie. You know, hanging with Carrie and the girls. Shoe shopping, giggling, brunching. Kind of makes your head hurt, doesn't it?

Now picture her playing Tony Stark's dutiful assistant (played by Gwenyth Paltrow) in "Iron Man." Or Bruce Banner's long-suffering love interest in "The Incredible Hulk." Not much easier, right?

I don't know if you are aware of this fact but Jolie is in a category all her own - and she's nobody's best girlfriend. Just in the nick of time, this real-life superhero is here to rescue us from a summer movie season monopolized by testosterone and handbags. In Timur Bekmambetov's Matrixy thriller "Wanted," out this Friday, Jolie is in top form: lean, scowling, firing big guns at bad guys - and not exactly taking it easy on the good guy, either. After watching the film's sneak peek, you get the feeling that Jolie intimidated every male actor around her, and she probably did.

So why isn't she getting more lead action roles?

Sharing the spotlight has, so far, been the price Jolie's had to pay for building up her credibility as a viable action-movie player. With the notable exception of 2001's "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" and its sequel, every thriller in which Jolie's appeared - her top-grosser "Mr. And Mrs. Smith," as well as "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow," "Taking Lives," "The Bone Collector," "Gone in Sixty Seconds" - has seen her taking a back seat to, or at least co-starring with, a male heavy hitter.

Is it that directors think she can't hold her own in a lead role? Because let us be, well, far from the first to argue that yes, she can. She's one of the most famous faces in the world. She regularly tops drooling men's-magazine lists of sexiest celebs alive. Last month, a poll of bikers rated her "Tomb Raider" motorcycle-chase scene "best two-wheeled movie moment of all time." She's also proven her worth as a box-office draw. "The 'Tomb Raider' movies made her a superstar," says O'Neil. "The first one made $131 million, and the second was $65 million. It didn't make as much as the first, but it didn't disappoint."

It's a curious thing yah know, because the Cult of Angelina (OK, Brangelina, if you want, but let's be honest - Brad is kind of an afterthought) has never been stronger. The fever-pitch of speculation about when and where she'll give birth to her twin girls has spawned new levels of paparazzi insanity.

But, despite her burgeoning brood, Jolie always plays as hard as the guys when she gets on the set. "She seems to be this frail, slender, delicate creature when she's strolling down the red carpet," says O'Neil, "and then becomes the ultimate symbol of female empowerment in these films."

And cinematic female empowerment - blame it on "Thelma and Louise" - often equals firepower.

Is it so bad, though, to have one actress out there who believes she's an invincible action hero? The only other female hero character in the genre this summer, Selma Blair's character in "Hellboy 2"  reportedly spends most of her time knocked up - and if there's one thing we've had plenty of in the past year of movies, it's pregnant women.

No, I strongly prefer Jolie, who kicks butt onscreen and plays mama off-screen. As with everything else in her life, she's insisted on doing it to the extreme - six kids? really? - but so far, motherhood doesn't seem to be slowing her down. Jolie still works tirelessly as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador. Last week, she appeared for World Refugee Day, and her page on the UN's site currently lists more than 20 field missions since her appointment in 2001, including trips to Sierra Leone, Kosovo, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.

And, OK, it might seem like she's mixing her messages a little - stumping for the rights of refugees from war-torn countries one week, wielding enormous semiautomatic weapons on the big screen the next. But I say: Woman's got a right to be contradictory. We need her gunslinging bravado in the movies. After all, nongirly girls need role models, too.

My heart is racing after reading the 60th Primetime Emmy® Awards’ shortlist. The list below are the top ten vote-getters for outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series, as voted on by the entire Television Academy. And I can't help but be proud as my bets are in the top list! As you can see below, almost 50% - 70% of my bets are on the list! Wonder how many of mine will turn up in the best female and best male actors and actresses. ^^,

The next step of the process will be the Blue Ribbon Panel screenings, which will be conducted throughout this weekend of June 28-29. I can feel the anxiety already in the respective stations hoping (and trying) to get their shows on that list. The results of those panels, who will watch and judge the work of each finalist, represent 50 percent of the vote. Both results will be averaged together to come up with our five nominees in each category.

Those nominees will be announced by the Television Academy at 5:40 a.m. on Thursday, July 17.
The panel participants have been confirmed and the panels are currently closed.

Followed the commercials, the trailers, the production photos, the interviews, a viral campaign on par with the Navy, but I'm still not sure if I want to see what might be the most hyped movie in history--a film that includes the final completed role of a talented young actor whose dark performance as one of comics' most notorious villains is already being hailed as Oscar-worthy. I mean, will Batman have some kind of Bat-arm-brace-metal-cutter thing or is just going to be more of the same old bull? Oh, he does have that? I guess I'm game then. Just hoping for no more assistant-leading man love teams here.

A thousand new Dark Knight photos here. Spoiler: print them and treat them like a flipbook for the full movie.

Hordes of new stars from reality TV shows and other contests the media unabashedly create to temporarily sow intrigue (?) and controversy take part on overpopulating the Hollywood scene. But what is REAL stardom? EW shared with us their bets for the next Hollywood A-listers and I can't help but agree with their choices. The throne belonged only to a few and these guys are eligible candidates for the position.


Despite his involvement with "silly slapping" videos (circulating in the internet for awhile) and turning off smoking alarms while movie productions, the 21 year old actor last seen in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull pocketed a Career Box Office of $2.3 billion*. Labeouf/Ladouche isn't an easy catch as his asking price now is $10 million.

While Hollywood execs were desperately seeking the next leading man (Is it Colin? Is it Jake?), this scrawny kid star (Holes) was slowly maturing into the Gen-Y mover of their dreams. His first solo outing, Disturbia, opened to an impressive $22 million — an achievement quickly dwarfed by his next film, Transformers, which grossed a massive $708 million worldwide. Steven Spielberg, who executive-produced the latter, took a shine to the kid, casting him in Indy 4. ''He's accessible without being soft,'' says one top studio exec. ''There's a bit of an edge there. I think he's fantastic.'' He's most often compared to a young Tom Hanks, but LaBeouf has built a template closer to Cruise, lining up action franchises and then injecting them with emotion. Now he just needs to prove he's got enough stamina, and good sense, to keep his career ablaze without getting burned by fame or sidetracked by momentary lapses in judgment (see: Walgreens arrest).

Coming soon: The terrorism thriller Eagle Eye, followed by (no surprise) Transformers 2.
*Worldwide box office; live-action films only; figures provided by Media By Numbers and

The fresh 21 y.o. actress isn't a newbie when it comes to the silver screen. She was last seen in the critically acclaimed movie Juno and Smart People. Its a good foundation her being in her 20's to get a sizable career box office of $705 million and a a good asking price of Over $3 million. Her SNL skit was something that kinda raised my eyebrow and made me think. "Hmmm, is she trying to tell us something?" It was a hands down funny but
Now that she's the darling of the indie world, what other "shenanigans" can she get into? Plenty, if she plays her cards right. ''Ellen has a choice,'' says one producer. ''Will she be Meryl Streep or will she be a big [box office] star?'' So far, Page hasn't dropped any big hints as to which direction she's leaning. What's certain is that she's not going to be some bland ingenue, dolling herself up for fashion shoots or trolling out her personal life for the tabloids. She's shown off her acting chops in small films like Hard Candy, but also played a mutant in the last X-Men movie. Most important, Juno's success ($228 million worldwide) has made Page a cult icon to a generation of young women. They'll likely follow her wherever she decides to go, at least for the near future. ''Audiences are looking for authenticity, verisimilitude,'' says a top studio exec. ''She has that.''
Coming Soon: First, a rural drama, Peacock. Second, a Roller Derby comedy, Whip It, directed by Drew Barrymore. Third, a British period drama, Jane Eyre.

Although now I'm in stitches about her being in this list due to her slight attitude problem and "lack of gratitude", I still do believe she has that IT factor in the movie industry. Last Seen In 27 Dresses, Heigl made a mark with her $633 million career box office and is quite impressive with the $6 million asking price.
Hollywood's had a devil of a time finding the next female romantic comedy star. Even Reese Witherspoon hasn't been able to drag a rom-com over the $100 million mark domestically since 2002. Into this void steps Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy), who capitalized on the success of last summer's Knocked Up by opening her first solo vehicle, 27 Dresses, to $23 million, besting both Legally Blonde films. ''Women really like Katherine, and men like her too,'' says a top talent agent. ''That's a pretty good place to be.'' (It doesn't hurt to have a fan following from TV, either. Ask George Clooney.) A classic beauty, Heigl's as adept with a pratfall as she is with a crying jag. The challenge will be finding great material (not easy in her genre) and maturing into dramatic roles. Romantic comediennes tend to have short shelf lives — witness Meg Ryan.

Coming Soon: Starring opposite 300 hunk Gerard Butler in the romantic comedy The Ugly Truth.
The recently single 25 year old we last saw in The Devil Wears Prada and Becoming Jane is making a career boosting box office of $878 million. Her roles in Becoming Jane and Brokeback Mountain undid the hate I harbored for her in the past movies she made, especially those Disney-cheesy movies. I sure hope it helps in forgetting her past love now that she has an asking price counting up to $5 million.
Could she be the next Julia Roberts? It's a tall order, to be sure, but of all the contenders to the throne, Anne Hathaway may have the best shot. After being launched from obscurity as the star of Disney's $300 million worldwide-grossing Princess Diaries films, Hathaway deftly left the kiddie pool behind by polishing her acting chops (and, ahem, baring her chest) in the R-rated, Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain. Then she held her own against no less than Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. ''Annie's just going to keep going up and up,'' raves one studio exec. ''She can do anything.'' Well, almost. The doe-eyed gamine has one more mission before she can ascend to the next rung on the A-list ladder. ''She needs to appeal to men,'' says one producer. True enough. And playing a slinky secret agent with legs for days in Get Smart ain't a bad first step.

Coming Soon: Get Smart, followed by Jonathan Demme's Rachel Getting Married, opposite Debra Winger.

MICHAEL CERA (not shown in image)
From Arrested Development to the movies, I never get enough of this Canadian cutie. And it adds up to his endearing factor that he hopes to do roles played by Bill Murray even at his age (except be recently divorced like Murray). The adorable 20 year old we last saw in Superbad and Juno has a way with audience making $498 million and sets the bar with an asking price of over $4 million.
Nobody can spot a phony faster than a teenager, which is exactly why Michael Cera has become the alpha male for the Proactiv set. ''He has defined for a generation something that feels relatable, slightly underdog, and authentic,'' says a studio exec. With his sad baby-seal cuteness and mastery of the uncomfortable pause, Cera has made teenage awkwardness not just funny but cool. After building an ardent fan base on TV's brilliant-but-canceled Arrested Development (and developing an Internet following with his Web series at, Cera delivered a one-two knockout last year, first as a sweet guy trying to score in the summer smash Superbad and then as the most non-playa baby daddy ever in the indie darling Juno. Industry insiders worry about how his boyish charm will age — will he still be adorable at 30? — but for now, he's hotter than a high school quarterback after the championship game.

Coming Soon: The romantic comedy Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist' and the comedy Year One, opposite Jack Black.

Incoming stars!!!
The Step Up stud stars in Fighting, opposite Terrence Howard, but 2009's G.I. Joe will be his real leading-man test.
Across the Universe had 'em swooning, and 21 hit No. 1. Has heat, but his next film, Crossing Over, is an ensemble.

TV Characters You'd Date

I created a discussion on BlogCatalog for the past week and polled on a couple of friends asking people to name the fake people you want in your life for real -- here, your (sometimes very weird) answers. 


By far the most popular response...

JIM HALPERT (John Krasinski)

The Office

We would have so much fun pulling pranks on Dwight and Andy and we'd go to baseball games and he'd never leave me at a fountain in NYC. Of course, I'd have to pull an Eternal Sunshine on him to erase all memories of that Pam person, but I know people, and that can be arranged. — Red

I'm sure everybody thinks to themselves, ''Oh my god, I am SO Jim/Pam! I'm so cynical, and everybody else at school/work are just a bunch of Kellys/Phyllises/Stanleys!'' But, like, for me, it's REALLY true. So I'm sure Jim would fall madly in love with me. — Emily R

LOGAN ECHOLLS (Jason Dohring) and VERONICA MARS (Kristen Bell)

Veronica Mars

He's fiercely loyal, witty as hell, and pretty much awesome in every way. To quote Veronica, he's ''ownage.'' Sure, he used to arrange bum fights and screw his friend's stepmother, but when you think about it...he's had the most f'd up life ever (girlfriend brutally murdered, dad arrested for sleeping with/killing said girlfriend, mom commits suicide, etc.) yet he still manages to love with his whole heart. — Melissa

Some folks have mentioned the boys from Veronica Mars, but no man has stepped up to the plate to take V herself. I heartily volunteer. She's smart, hilarious, and a sassy lady. What's more to ask for, oh wait she's a bombshell. Annoy me, tiny blonde, annoy me anytime! — Seth



He's ridiculously attractive, I like ridiculously attractive guys...He likes to save people, I frequently need saving...He's usually pretty stubbly, I like's clearly a match made in heaven. — Cara

This is a good question as there are a lot of TV characters I have a ''crush'' on...I wouldn't actually date them (i.e. Logan Echolls). I love the idea of them...not actually them. Jack Shephard, on the other hand...We share the same sense of morality, which I think is the most important thing in a relationship. Also, there is nothing sexier than someone who does the right thing simply because it's right. Goodness & morality are the ultimate turn-on. — Kris


Eric Taylor. He's not perfect and he doesn't claim to be, but he's a decent man who loves his family, is a loyal friend, and cares very much about doing the right thing. He's funny and smart and loves what he does and there is just no man who has ever cooed at a baby sexier!…Sadly I can't even begin to compete with Tami Taylor's awesome hair [but] I'd be more than willing to help him get that bratty teenage daughter of his under control. — Melissa

I'd have to go with Tim Riggins...He's not averse to dating older women, and do I really need to say it? People, he's HOT. — Alison

I usually dig the older bad boys, like House and Sawyer, but I think Smash Williams is the guy for me right now. With all that self-righteous, brash, reckless charisma behind that handsome face, Smash got it going on. — K

I have SUCH a soft spot for Landry...I'm a geek, he's a geek.... — Kari

My heart belongs to the ENTIRE cast of Friday Night Lights. I'd marry them all in a big polygamous to-do. I'll even take Buddy, just for kicks. Now, the fight for 1st wife though comes down to Coach and QB 1.... — Anonymous

BREE VAN DE KAMP (Marcia Cross)

Desperate Housewives

I sorta dig that neurotic obsessive compulsive thing she's got going on. As long as I use a coaster, I've got it easy.... — Darma Boy



I've been told I'm crazy for wanting to be with him (by almost everyone I know), but I don't care. Sure, he's a Vicodin-popping, fortysomething, sarcastic doctor with a limp, but who cares? He's smart, speaks his mind, and is very witty. As I love to argue, this works out perfectly. We could go back & forth for hours on a number of topics, from religion to celebrities. Plus, he plays the piano and a mean guitar. So hot!! — Frances

PAM BEESLY (Jenna Fischer) and KAREN FILIPPELLI (Rashida Jones)

The Office

From the male perspective, Pam Beesly. She is very cute, without being high-maintenance, growing in her confidence and is artsy. We share a similar light, yet sarcastic sense of humor. — James

Wow, so it's mostly female posters lusting after all the terrific male characters out there...I'll mix things up a bit and put in my vote for Karen Filippelli of The Office. She's smart, funny and enjoys practical jokes, but works hard when she has to (like me). Not to mention she's unbelievably beautiful (some might say ''exotic looking''). She's a risk taker and willing to make big changes in her life for someone she cares for (I like to think I'm the same way). Hey, if Jim doesn't want her.... — Ceballos

HIRO NAKAMURA (Masi Oka), SYLAR (Zachary Quinto) and CLAIRE BENNET (Hayden Panettiere)


Hiro Nakamura!! We share many interests — I would go comic shopping with him, I wouldn't gripe if Ando hung out all the time, I'd ask him to teach me some samurai moves, and I'd take care of him after a time-hopping jaunt to save the world. Oh yeah — and I'd make him waffles. — Kathleen

I have a HUGE crush on [Sylar]. I have no superpowers he'd want to steal, so I'm safe. I'd be understanding and love him for the slightly creepy, super-smart weirdo that he is. I would make him happy, but it wouldn't be enough. He'd break, kill someone; I'd cry, then leave him. He'd apologize and ask for forgiveness. I would go make out with Nathan Petrelli (ignoring the last episode) and then take him back. It'd be a huge messy deal but the make-up sex would be awesome. — Susie S.

Claire Bennet. A little young, I know, but it's been a goal of mine to date a cheerleader. I'd threaten to expose her to the entire school if she didn't go out with me (teens hate that)! — Rob Grizzly

MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Wentworth Miller)

Prison Break

I know he's on the run from the law and a shadowy evil corporation that murdered his last girlfriend, and that he is seriously on the rebound after losing said girlfriend, but look at the guy — he is incredibly hot, sexy, vulnerable, can I not go for that? Besides, he hasn't been intimate with a female for months so I know that whatever time we spend together on a secluded Central American beach would be...uh...memorable to say the least. So hands off, girls, this fugitive is mine! — anne

Thieves by Tuesday* Indie Radio

Indie rock. Indie Pop. What exactly is it? Rock/Pop on an independent label? Or does it have to do with style, attitude or era? One thing is for sure, there's no exact definition.
Various indie artists influencing my musical taste...

Indie Faves Indie Faves

After quiet and prudent deliberation, I have decided upon my 10 TV pair-ups that have the TV's Onscreen BEST CHEMISTRY. I'm such a coach potato these days that I even watch recaps on the Internet. I also searched for their character's full names---hope I got it right. It's sick but I love it. Anyway, here's my 10.

1. Kate [Evangeline Lilly] and Sawyer [Josh Holloway] on Lost
have enough heat to melt every polar ice cap around.I swear, even my mother agrees. The scene where he asks for a kiss in payment for telling the truth about Shannon's inhaler makes my toes curl it's so hot!

2. Jack Shephard [Matthew Fox] and Kate Austen [Evangeline Lilly] from Lost. I've never seen anyone with so much chemistry; they really make you love the couple and their skill to act together.

3.Mulder [David Duchovny] and Scully [Gillian Anderson] on The X-Files. As a kid, I was fascinated by the geeky info and science-based fiction from X-files. But another factor why I love the show (the movie is coming SOON!) is how Mulder tries to deviate his relationship with Scully from professional to something else (by something else, you know what I mean). :-)

4. I'll throw in Veronica [Kristen Bell] and Logan [Jason Dohring] from Veronica Mars. What could be better than lurve? Another plus is that I really like Kristen Bell.

5. House [Hugh Laurie] and Wilson [Robert Sean Leonard] on House M.D. I don't know what House's concept of friendship is, but his just ENTERTAINS me so much that I'm putting them in this list.

6. Bethany Joy Galeotti and James Lafferty who play Nathan and Haley Scott on One Tree Hill. For five years I've watched this duo portray a beloved couple. Their chemistry is gold, and has never failed to amaze me. Their presence really owns the screen. They just have this simple grace, comfort, and pureness to the way they portray this couple.

And honestly speaking, for me, they are the reason why everyone believes in true love. They just feel so right together, and the way they look at each other just melts your heart. That feeling is definitely here to stay for a very long time. Here's to Haley and Nathan from One Tree Hill, always and forever!!!!!

7. Marc [Michael Urie] and Amanda [Becki Newton] from Ugly Betty have amazingly funny, quick banter that always makes me laugh. They are both perfectly devious. I just love them bitching on TV. Hehehe.

8. This isn't questionable, me being a Joss Whedon fan. Angel (David Boreanaz) and Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. From their first meeting in a darkened alley, they set my TV set ablaze. The two of them engaged one another like no one else on the series. Although, I find it hard to believe that David could not have chemistry with anyone, given his recent well matched pairing on Bones.

Buffy and Spike [James Marsters] as well. The characters complimented each other beautifully, and the actors played off each other perfectly whether the situation was dramatic or comedic. Plus, their onscreen connection was smokin'. I'm a bit more o Angel-Buffy tho.

9. The Gilmore girls of course!
Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham [as Rory and Lorelai on The Gilmore Girls] not only pulled of the daughter/mother dynamic but were also able to spit out all that rapid pop culture laden dialog and make it totally believable. Who didn't want to be them or at least be their friend? I sure do. *_*

10. This almost didn't make my list if I hadn't scanned in my DVD library J
ohn Krasinski's movie with Mandy Moore. I thought I'd hate Jim and Pam [Jenna Fischer] pair-up in the US version of The Office, but as I neared the end of the season, I was like, "Whoa!". I guess it was good that they SLOWLY built their chemistry amidst the chaos in their jobs and delivered the much awaited steam from them.

Wanna add to the list? Or maybe comment? Feel free to do so!
