In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Shailene Woodley might play the iconic Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Amazing Spiderman sequel and Niall Horyn needs surgery after a brutal squirrel attack.
HIT: Shailene Woodley may join The Amazing Spiderman 2 cast as Mary Jane Watson
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Shailene Woodley has been offered to play the iconic redhead Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spiderman sequel. This may be the second best thing to happen to her this week after ABC announced they’ll be cancelling The Secret Life of an American Teenager. Since her stunning performance in the George Clooney film, The Descendants, proves she’ll be a worthy third piece in the romantic love triangle between Andrew Garfield’s web-slinging Peter Parker and Emma Stone’s brainy Gwen Stacey.
MISS: One Direction’s Niall Horan gets attacked by squirrels
One Direction’s Niall Horan recently been spotted on crutches. The 1D member told the U.K.’s the Sun Newspaper that the injury was the result of being attacked by a squirrel in a London park. Niall will reportedly have to undergo surgery to fix the ligaments he tore in his leg because of the furry attack. Niall’s injury just adds to my now rational fear of the urban creatures.
HIT: The Mythbusters prove that Jack Dawson didn’t have to die at the end of Titanic
The guys at Mythbusters have finally put the widely debated Titanic dilemma to a rest. Through the use of science, Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater could’ve lived happily ever after if only she made some room on that floating piece of wood. This startling revelation has 1) made me a smug person who wants to yell, “I TOLD YOU SO” to everyone who has ever disagreed with me, 2) given me another to cry at the end of the movie, and c) given me the conviction to boo at James Cameron if I ever come across the famous director.
MISS: Ke$ha will release an illustrated memoir
As a prelude to her new album Warrior, Ke$ha will be releasing an illustrated memoir. Titled My Crazy Beautiful Life (after one of her songs), the memoir will include photos, thoughts and reflections from the singer. Here’s what I really think will be included in the book: glitter on every single page, a Stud-Your-Own-Head kit and a detailed illustration of her sexy time with a ghost.
HIT: Jay Z rides the subway
Even with his millions of dollars, Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z decided to do the normal people thing and ride the subway to work. Though unlike normal people, work means performing in front of thousands of fans at the stadium his NBA team (he’s a minority owner), The Brooklyn Nets call home. If I want to spot celebs, I guess I should chug back another morning cup of coffee so I can keep my eyes peeled on my morning subway ride. For the record, I haven’t seen Rachel McAdams or Spiderman on the TTC yet. Yet.
MISS: NBC pushes Community back to who knows when
(NOTE: Before I go on I know I normally reserve this last spot to Lindsay Lohan. I’ve put a moratorium on all Lohan news because I simply can’t keep up. Just in case you’re wondering though, the trailer for her B movie The Canyons was released and got into a bloody fight with her mom. Now onto the important stuff.)
NBC won’t be premiering Community or
Whitney (who am I kidding? No one cares about Whitney) on October 19. So far, a new premiere date hasn’t been set. The Peacock says they need more time to promote the shows as they’ve been busy pushing their newer programs onto the unsuspecting public.
Yeah right, NBC. We all know you’re pulling a Jack Donaghy and have been purposely tanking the network for years now. Or, you’re just Brita-ing everything. Talk about life imitating art.
