Apparently, the answer is Facebook. The red trench-wearing mysterious character is heading to the virtual world. Farmville, you better watch out!!! Carmen Sandiego is looking to dethrone you as the most popular Facebook application. I couldn’t be any more stoked about this news. As a kid, I loved playing the globe-trekking case solving game.

Blue Fang, the company developing the game for the Facebook platform has been working round-the-clock to bring the popular game to the masses. The edutainment computer game first launched back in 1983. The Facebook version is scheduled to go live on Feb 9, 2011. A week prior, the company is also releasing another classic historical game, “The Oregon Trail“. Watch the “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” trailer below.

No Ordinary Family Enlists Lucy Lawless

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Xena and her warrior badass self are heading over to ABC’s “No Ordinary Family” to cause some havoc for the Powell family. ABC announced Lucy Lawless has been tapped for at least five episodes. Essentially, she’ll be around til the end of the season. According to sources, her character will be “a powerful woman and potential adversary for the Powell clan whose agenda could put the family in danger.” Sounds scandalous, doesn’t it.

I wonder what powers her character will possess. I’m sure network execs and show producers are hoping her powers involve increasing the show’s ratings. The freshman sci-fi family show is in danger of being canceled due to anemic ratings. Poor show, can’t catch a break. Whatever little momentum it had has been lost due to preemption by Barack Obama and his news conferences, ABC switching the show’s timeslot and awkward schedule of new episodes and repeats.

Movie Review: The Rite

In: Movies, Nic

Hopkins and priests and possession OH MY!

I took in the premiere of The Rite this week, to see what was going down in the horror world. I would call myself a horror buff but had little to no expectations of another movie about a priest who may not believe in God, a mentor skilled in exorcism, and a whole lotta science vs. religion.

The movie opened up fantastically and set the scene for our main character Michael Kovak (played by relatively unknown Colin O’Donoghue), a twenty something year old trying to get away from taking over the family’s Funeral Home business. He decides to study the priesthood, fully conscious he may not believe in God, and after a full four years of school decides to resign. His superiors see potential in Michael, and somewhat blackmail him into studying a new exorcism program in Rome and staying in the priesthood. So out of America, and into the sweeping landscapes of Italy we go.

In the infamous words of Destiny’s Child. Can you handle it? I don’t think you can handle it. Let that be your warning because hearing this amazing mashup will leave you in such a euphoric state, you’ll think you popped a few mind-altering pills. Seriously, this guy is amazing. My good friend, Scott, who’s currently living in Australia introduced me to this musical genius.

Robin Skouteris is a music producer, DJ and a video director from Athens, Greece. He’s mostly known for his mashups. Beside sharing his audio masterpieces to the world, Robin also remixes and composes for music artists, tv commercials and short films. His latest creation is titled “Popalicious!” and includes artists like The Pet Shop Boys, Destiny’s Child, Kylie Minogue, Salt-N-Pepa and much more. A couple years back, I claimed DJ Earworm had created the best video mashup ever, but after hearing this awesome mix, Robin Skouteris has supplanted Earworm in my eyes. Especially, given DJ Earworm’s less than stellar 2010 year-end video mashup.

If you ever had any trepidation about James Franco and Anne Hathaway co-hosting the 83rd Academy Awards, you can squash them immediately. As the countdown to this year’s telecast kicks into high gear, ABC released two video clips promoting Hollywood’s biggest night. Franco and Hathaway step in for Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin who did an excellent job hosting last year’s show. As a side note, Hathaway is the first woman to host the ceremonies since Ellen DeGeneres did in 2006. Whoopi Goldberg being the other female to hold the big job.

Besides breathing some much needed youth to the show, judging by the promos the dynamic duo will be serving a healthy dose of hilarity. Their chemistry is undeniably deliciously captivating. In the first promo, the two train for any unexpected incidents that might occur on live TV, including a wardrobe malfunction. In the second clip, the two flub their lines. Watch both videos below.

Colbie Caillat Says “I Do”

In: Donovan, TV Shows

As “American Idol 10” searches for the next music superstar, the one that got away is back with brand new music. Colbie Caillat is widely-known to have tried out for American Idol twice and rejected both times. She even sang, what would become her biggest hit, “Bubbly” during her second audition, but to no avail. Don’t be too hard on Idol judges, seeing tens of thousands of people is daunting and eventually some will slip to the cracks. For their part, Idol has created more superstars than lost- Colbie Caillat and Amber Riley (Glee) being the two most notable misses.

But enough about Idol, let’s talk about Colbie’s new track. The “Bubbly” singer’s “I Do” leaked online a few weeks early of it’s scheduled February 7 debut on radio. It’s the lead cut from her third album, “All For You“. In the preview found on Caillat’s official site, she mentions the song is about taking a relationship to the next step. If you like her music, you’ll enjoy “I Do”. It’s light, cheery, cute and summery. In other words, it’s everything you would expect from her but with more of an up-tempo vibe. Check it out below.

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, TV Shows

A couple of weeks ago, the “Charlie’s Angels” reboot signed its first angel, Annie Ilonzeh. Now comes word that negotiations to sign the remaining two other angels are close to being finalized. According to Deadline Hollywood, the reboot’s showrunners have tapped Minka Kelly and Rachael Taylor to round out the cast. Don’t the three of them above look great together. If the pilot is half has good as these girls are gorgeous, the show could be a breakout hit for ABC during the 2011-12 television season.

Minka Kelly who stars in the upcoming flick “The Roommate” with Leighton Meester is best known for her roles in “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood“. In addition, her role as Derek Jeter’s real-life girlfriend has kept her front and center on many publications. The Leighton Meester lookalike was named by Esquire as the sexiest woman of 2010. Rachael Taylor’s biggest role to date was in “Transformers“. The Australian-born actress has also appeared on “Grey’s Anatomy“.
