Hollywood casting couches were definitely busy this week. Check out this trio of casting developments making headlines. First up is the super hunky Josh Lucas. Tell me, you didn’t fall in lust with him in “Sweet Home Alabama“. Something about that southern drawl. If everything works out, Lucas will soon be gracing our television sets on a weekly basis. Hell, yeah. Reports say the 39-year-old actor is in final negotiations to star in NBC’s midseason drama, “The Firm“.

The legal drama is an adaptation of John Grisham’s best-selling novel of the same name. It later became a hit movie starring Tom Cruise and Jeanne Tripplehorn. Lucas will play Mitch McDeere, the lawyer who brought down the prestigious unscrupulous law firm. The television series will take place ten years after the events of the film. McDeere and his family have now left the Witness Protection program and return to reclaim their lives. I loved the original film and book (yup, I used to read back then) and can’t wait what NBC does with it. Hopefully, they don’t eff it up.

Robyn has just released her video for her latest single, “Call Your Girlfriend“. In the video, Robyn dances non-stop by herself in what appears in a large warehouse. Perhaps the warehouse where she secretly meets the guy she sings about? With a little lighting magic, it’s the perfect dancefloor for Robyn to express what’s on her mind. Essentially, Robyn wants the man she’s into to call his girlfriend and breakup with her because he’s met someone new – her. It’s a catchy tune, but there’s no beating around the bush that Robyn’s singing from the “other girl” slash “homewrecker” perspective – LOL. You know the other girl will be devastated, hurting with “Every Heart Beat”.

The video, directed by Max Vitali, is so simple, yet extremely captivating. It’s only Robyn in one setting with very little editing, but the lighting is amazing and Robyn dances as if no one is watching. The only think I don’t like about the video is the landscape/rectangular crop of the screen. It is way too narrow for my liking. Other than that, it’s actually pretty incredible. Check it out!

That’s right. NBC’s grossly addicting reality competition is coming back. The show featured six individuals tackling extreme and horrific challenges all in hopes of winning the $50,000 prize. Considering talented designers on “Project Runway” only score $100,000 after weeks of competition, $50,000 for eating animal intestines is a pretty good pay day.

After a five-year absence, NBC is rebooting their classic show. Normally, NBC’s programming strategies drive me up the wall, but this actually makes sense. They can seamlessly plop a newly-revamped “Fear Factor” anywhere they have vacant slots when inevitably a few of their new fall shows fail. Too boot, the reruns on Chiller (NBC’s sister horror based channel) garner high ratings. Unlike other reality competition shows, “Fear Factor” were all self-contained episodes. You didn’t have to invest weeks to find out who won. Bringing it back was a no-brainer.

Virgin Mobile Burns Heidi & Spencer

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

You may have seen a recent ad from Virgin Mobile where they manufacture a fake celebrity couple: Spencer Falls + Sarah Caroll = Sparah. Of course desperate for attention, former Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag (aka Speidi) went public with their anger that Virgin Mobile would copy their likeness and demanded to be paid.

Virgin Mobile has responded to their criticism in the BEST way possible. Reps for the new spoof celebrity couple “Sparah” told TMZ that they have no time to respond to Spencer’s accusations “due to their pressing endorsement commitments with Virgin Mobile and their frequent interactions with real celebrities.” BURN! Love it.

Chances are you’ve only seen the 30 second spot of this commercial. I’ve included the 60 second version below. My favorite line is from their publicist (Anna Curtis) at the very end of the commercial when Spencer says, “I’m so confused.” She then responds, “See! That right there? That’s a tweet. Tweet that shit.” LOL.

“Come and play, everything’s…GAY, GAY, GAY?”

On Fox News, “The Great American Panel” discusses how they think that Sesame Street is a danger to the moral foundation of the United States, and that it essentially leads to boys becoming prom queens. The panel consisted of Ben Shapiro (author of “Primetime Propaganda”), Ken Blackwell (former Ohio Secretary Of State), Kirsten Haglund (Miss America 2008) & is led by Sean Hannity.

The discussion starts with the twirp, Ben Shapiro saying he’d like to take Elmo, Big Bird, and the whole gang out back and cap ‘em. WTF? THAT’S how you’re starting this discussion about your country’s morality? When you’re unhappy with a situation or group of people, you should “cap ‘em”?! Nice. Anyway, he then goes on to introduce his book called “Primetime Propaganda” which is about the liberal bias (in his opinion) in the Hollywood community.

Lady Gaga recently sat down with Lee Hawkins of Wall Street Journal to discuss her fame, her creative process, Amazon selling her album for $0.99, Michael Jackson, and a few other things. The interview is definitely one of the cutest interviews I’ve seen with her. She’s so quirky, honest, and funny – I love it! As I’ve mentioned before, I really applaud how much more real she’s gotten in her interviews as her fame has grown. She’s such a great artist and quite obviously extremely passionate about her fans and using her music to accomplish so much more.

Hawkins asks her about how she felt about Amazon selling her album for only $0.99. He asks her, “Don’t you think, considering who you are, your record is worth more than 99 cents?” Here’s what she said in response:

“No. I absolutely do not, especially for MP3s and digital music. It’s invisible. It’s in space. If anything, I applaud a company like Amazon for equating the value of digital versus the physical copy, and giving the opportunity to everyone to buy music. It also wasn’t really 99 cents, because Amazon paid the difference on all of those purchases as part of their promotional campaign for one of their new services. I think it’s amazing and it was a really nice surprise and I felt honored that they chose my record to be part of it.”

I totally didn’t expect her to say that nor did I know that was the situation with the Amazon promo. So interesting. Also, when Gaga is later asked about Michael Jackson having wanted to collaborate with her, it makes her very uncomfortable…

Watch the interview below – it’s really good!

Brad Pitt who? Vince Vaughn what? Jennifer Aniston‘s got a NEW man in her life and here’s hoping he’s the one! I was always on Team Aniston after Brad hooked up with Homewrecker Jolie. I think Aniston is a gorgeous, classy, and very funny lady (check out the trailer for “Horrible Bosses“) who deserves someone who’ll treat her right. Last fall, she met Justin Theroux while filming the upcoming film, “Wanderlust,” and they’ve been into each other ever since.

According to People magazine, over the weekend, Aniston had a little party and used it as a good opportunity to introduce her new man to some of her close friends (including Courtney Cox and Chelsea Handler). “They all had a great time and enjoyed Justin’s company,” the source told People. The source added that they are “doing great” and that he is “edgier than the guys Jen usually dates. She really likes him!” A source at US Magazine also added, “Jen is totally into him. They have been hanging out for months. She wants to be with him all the time. She’s diving in headfirst.”

UPDATE: Justin Theroux is still apparently dating Heidi Bivens and Ken Baker, chief correspondent from E! News has stated: “I’ve found out from Heidi Bivens’ mom, who apparently would know, that Justin has told her there is nothing going on between him and Jennifer, and that the’re just friends. It’s a big misunderstanding.”

Regardless, check out some pictures of Justin Theroux below…

While her Gossip Girl costar Blake Lively is all over the tabloids rumored to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio (this kind of stuff is like storyline taken out of the GG show itself), Leighton Meester is busy luring in a man of her own with Vera Wang‘s frangrance called “Lovestruck“. As you may or may not know, Meester has a two year $3 million contract as the face of Vera Wang’s new fragrance.

In the commercial, Leighton Meester is perched on a balcony in Soho, looking stunning in a burgundy form-fitting Vera Wang dress, and eagerly awaiting the arrival of her man. No, it’s not Chuck Bass or Lonely Boy. The guy sprints down the street and up the fire escape until he reaches Miss Meester, giving her a bouquet of flowers that match her dress exactly. Overcome with passion (obviously as a result of the “Lovestruck” fragrance), Meester chucks her bouquet and the two embrace and gaze into each other’s eyes. They’re “Lovestruck”.

Vera Wang told WWD, “When I heard tourists saying, ‘ I want to look like her,’ I knew we were right on the money,” said Wang. “There’s nothing like the real client in the street, and I mean the street literally — and in windows literally.” I agree, Leighton Meester looks gorgeous. The fragrance hits U.S. stores in August. In the meantime, check out the cute commercial below!
