The Talk of Tinseltown; Turning TV Shows into Movies

Johnny Depp has officially signed on to play Tonto in a movie adaptation of The Lone Ranger. Now they're looking for a leading man to play the title character. Johnny said, "There's so many interesting possibilities out there. Brad Pitt would be great. George Clooney would be great. Don't know who it's going to be just yet." I think Depp and Pitt would be fantastic together. Regardless of who they choose, I'll be seeing this movie.


Snoop Dogg says he's made an 'anthem for Prince William' after he was reportedly asked to perform for the newly engaged prince. "When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something," the rapper said in a statement obtained by The Wall Street Journal. This has yet to be confirmed by the royal family, but if it's true... well, they'll definitely earn some street cred in my book.


Christina Aguilera told People mag that she's seeing Matthew Rutler, a set assistant from her new flick, Burlesque. "Once I filed for divorce, we started dating. I'm not trying to jump into anything. I'm taking it slow and trying to be happy." Someone should help Christina with the definition of 'taking it slow'.


Josh Duhamel was kicked off an airplane when he refused to turn off his phone. The flight attendant reportedly asked him three times. When he laughed in her face, she had the pilot turn the plane around which was already on the runway. Celebrities may be rich, but they aren't special. Turn off your damn phone, Josh!


Star is reporting Britney’s husband for two days, Jason Alexander, received a phone call from the pop star where she accused current boyfriend, Jason Trawick, of beating her. I won't post a link to the tape since it's a fake. Jason Alexander is obviously desperate for money and attention. Britney and her people quickly squashed the story. She took to her Twitter with the following message.

"Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya'll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana ass!"


Another tv show is being turned into a movie. This time it's 21 Jump Street which will star Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. I love Johnny Depp now, but I wasn't a fan back in the day. I've never seen a single episode of 21 Jump Street so I seriously doubt I'll watch this movie.

The Lone Ranger is definitely one I want to see. I watched that so much as a kid. I am really looking forward to the remake of the vampire show Dark Shadows. Johnny is in that one too.

Beth said...

if snoop plays at the royal wedding...i hope i get an invite.

i never pegged J. Duhamel for a douche.

and if channing tatum is in some 21 jump street shizz...i may have to go see it just for that reason.

Jennifer Grey-stein said...

They are seriously reaching for shit when all these movie companies can do is sequel after sequel and turn tv shows into movies. Just sayin.

californiadreamin said...

Totally agree with ya on Christina and Josh. He's hot, but not THAT hot where he get special treatment like that, geesh!

Kristina P. said...

For as much gossip I read, you still provide me with new information.

Christine said...

I would watch the 21 Jump Street movie just to see Channing Tatum.

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

When I was younger I never watched 21 Jump Street - I thought Johnny was cute but he didn't make my heart pitter patter like he does now. I'm all about some Lone Ranger! LOVE! I can't wait to hear more about that project.

Josh DOUCHE that's his new name. Turn off your phone jackwagon!

Sarah said...

I love Johnny Depp. I will see any movie with him. Although like you, I've never seen an episode of 21 Jump Street.

MiMi said...

Johnny Depp is so weird. I love him.
I can't imagine Snoop Dogg doing a piece for "the royal couple."
LOL!! I would LOVE to see that!

SharleneT said...

I loved the Lone Ranger and Johnny will make a great Tonto (why, again, didn't they choose a real NA actor?) but I'm thinking Clooney's too old. We want an actor whose voice makes your heart pitter-patter because of its resonance and strength -- we know he'll take care of everything... he needs to be mid-30s... who does that mean?

Laura said...

I love me some Snoop Dog and Johnny Depp. Madonna aka Crypt Keeper- is really aging scarily bad.

fojoy said...

Josh Douche-amel, more like! He has serious issues

Jessica said...

I'm happy that Josh was kicked off of the plane. I seriously don't care the slightest bit *who* they are in the world...rules are rules, people. Follow them!

Olivia Carter said...

If it weren't for you I'd have no idea what's going on in the celebrity world. I love it.

Impulsive Addict said...

You know what Snoop's gift would be right. A big, fat bag of green stuff! LOL! You gotta love him.

Speaking of love, I lub me some Josh but seriously...NOT COOL Josh. Where were his southern manners? I'm disappointed.

I love Brit. She's a hot mess but Mr. Alexander needs to move on. I stalk her on twitter and saw her message. Too funny!

I've been a huge fan of Tatum for a while now. He's just plain hot. I'd probably leave my husband for him if necessary.

Karen Peterson said...

I heard ages ago that Johnny Depp was rumored to be playing Tonto. I think it'll be awesome. As for Jump Street, I WAS a fan way back then and I'm not likely to see it if there's not at least a cameo from the original Tom Hanson.

Nikosmommy said...

Fantastic talk of tinseltown! (you always do such a great job!!!)

Johnny Depp as Tonto? Lurve it!
Christina Ag already dating? No surprise there.
Britney being beat on? Anythings possible, let's hope it's false. My BritBrit doesn't need anymore sh!t in her poor life!

Jen said...

Let's talk more about Johnny Depp!! ;-) And Christina? Isn't dating a little too soon? Just my opinion!

WhisperingWriter said...

Channing Tatum is definately nice to look at.

Josh Duhmwhatever--ugh, he sounds like an ass. I guess he's gotten in trouble with planes before, shouting, "Do you know who I am?" I HATE when people scream that. I'd be all, "Nope, and frankly, I don't give a rat's ass. Have a great day!"

Candice said...

Josh Dumbass needs a foot in his scrot.

And Snoop dizzle at the royal wedding? I've heard it all now...

jennykate77 said...

Well, I had something very witty and clever to say, but then you had to go and put a picture of Channing up there. That boy makes me lose all my senses. He was amazing in Dear John. I just love him.

Oh, I do know that I wanted to say that I think Snoop performing at the Royal Wedding is such a win for me. Love that. Hope it happens.

Krista said...

I think I need to become a screen writer because clearly, no one has any original ideas.
Snoop Dog performing for the royals? Impressive.
Aguilera already dating? Umm, are we sure she waited to seperate?
Duhamel got kicked off a plane by a lowly flight attendant?! God forbid! (coming from a retired lowly flight attendant!)
Good for Brit-brit!
I think I like that Tatum boy.

Madonna has scary hands. The end.

A Real Housewife said...

oh how i've missed 'talk of tinseltown!!' i would watch, and salivate, over anything with johnny depp in it. le swoon.

Allyson & Jere said...

Ok, while I love Johnny Depp in all his wierdness and greatness, I really do. Am I the ONLY one who fails to see how HE is right for Tonto? Really? Is there not an uproar in the Native American community? It's not like there are loads of acting jobs coming their way ever. Oh, sorry...tangent over.

In other news....21 Jumpstreet the movie? For reals? OY!

I'm relieved to hear Christina is dating a man, since my husband just falsely told me she was dating Samantha Ronson or whoever the ho that dated Lindsey Lohan was.

So yeah, thanks for this enlightening post.

S.I.F. said...

I think Josh Duhamel is absolutely gorgeous, but seriously - it kind of makes me smile to think of him being kicked off the plane like that! I hate when people think they're above the law!

Kristy said...

I have seen that pic of Depp before. Mmmmmmm. Love it.

And, Christina? I don't believe her. Not one little bit.

AMY said...

Love the star updates!

Cathy said...

Oh. dear. God. thank you for that pic of Johnny. Swoon.

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

Christina A looks super chunks in that picture.
