Warner Bros. Reportedly Wants Leonardo DiCaprio For That Joker Origin Movie

1ba9d2de33c5fa30b8839591aa1e11cb

It’s AMAZING what you can find on Google by merely typing in “bad Joker cosplay.” Hollywood is desperately trying to forget Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker as an annoying Manic Panic addict with a melanin deficiency in the execrable Suicide Squad. Warner Bros. is trying to make a Todd Phillips-directed origin story for the Joker, and Martin Scorsese is reportedly on board to executive-produce it (!!!) in hopes of a quality, classy production. Both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter are claiming that they want Victoria’s Secret model vetter and frequent Scorsese collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead. This flick was supposed to feature a “young” pre-Joker. Have they changed the synopsis to a forty-something dude who decides to bedevil Batman as a solution to his midlife crisis?

No offer has officially been made to Leo as of yet, and he hasn’t said anything about it. The Joker flick would be his first since his lifelong thirst for an Oscar was sated by being half-devoured by a bear in 2015’s The Revenant.

Marty Scorsese hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet, either. But Warner Bros. supposedly wants to elevate their DC Comics universe movies to award-worthy levels. Even lauded Wonder Woman-director Patty Jenkins is shaking her head at that hilarious idea.

But what about that Suicide Squad spinoff flick they were supposedly making with Jared Leto, once again cosplaying Joker as driven crazy by the fact that he has to wear braces, and Margot Robbie as his irritating girlfriend Harley Quinn? That seems to still be a go, which would give us multiple Jokers. Like how they have TV Flash versus the upcoming movie Flash! Except it will be high on himself actor Joker vs. high on himself actor Joker. Well, Mr. Leto is not pleased by this turn of events. There’s only one Joker and he listens to nu-metal and drives a really cool car! The Hollywood Reporter says:

Leto is said to have made his displeasure with the notion of multiple Jokers known to his CAA agents, and rival agency WME has been using the concern to court him.

Look at all the ripples in the greedy-as-hell Hollywood pond this movie is making! It hasn’t even been written yet! By the time they’re through whittling the concept down and making it completely unrecognizable so everybody’s happy, it will probably star North West as Joker’s long lost grand-niece Funny Girl, and she’ll probably be battling a Transformer.

Clemson Band Trolled Ohio State So Hard With Their Halftime Performance

We got bands out here taking shots! I don’t think Ohio State will ever live that Fiesta Bowl performance down. You get shut out like that in a playoff game and teams have every right to troll you into submission.

People may call this band petty, but I totally disagree. I love moves like this. Let ’em know who put a 31-0 beat down last year while you kick the shit out of Akron at the same damn time.

Now not only is this a shot at Ohio State’s football team, that’s also a direct shot at the band. “The Best Damn Band In The Land”, I should say. I’m pretty sure Ohio State invented spelling out stuff with their band.

Clemson coming out in week one going straight for jugular’s. I like it.

Kid Rock’s Response To An Allegation Of Campaign Finance Violation Was What You’d Expect

wenn20942127-1-500x734

Because the late 2010s are a time of insanity and confusion, the patron saint of trailer parks is running an unofficial campaign for Senate. (Hold on, let me take a shot to soothe my nerves, cuz’ that’s some bullshit). Unfortunately for the demolition derby aficionados out there, Kid Rock’s political aspirations hit a brief snag this week when he was accused of a campaign finance violation. UsWeekly reports that Mr. Rock’s response to the allegation was as calm and measured as you’d expect from any political candidate.

The nonprofit organization Common Cause filed a complaint against Detroit’s Finest yesterday, claiming that he’s been campaigning for Senate without registering with the Federal Election Commission. Kid opened a website in July that sells a bunch of swag pushing his run for Senate.

Well, Kid had this to say yesterday:

“I am starting to see reports from the misinformed press and the fake news on how I am in violation of breaking campaign law. No. 1: I have still not officially announced my candidacy. No. 2: See #1 and go fuck yourselves.”

Now THAT’S how a future senator handles bad PR. Running for office and accused of infidelity/thievery/deceit/colluding with the Russians? Just tell them to go fuck themselves! Just treat it like you would if you were accused of harboring Insane Clown Posse’s glass dildo!

Does anyone else get a chill now when a dipshit drops “fake news” in there? It reminds me of a scene from Stephen King’s Desperation, when Ron Perlman’s scary cop has the couple in the back of his cruiser and he casually drops “I’m going to kill you” in the middle of advising them of their rights? *SCREAM* Nothing’s innocuous anymore!

The other scary thing here is that since 45 took the White House, it goes to show that ANYBODY can be president. Don’t laugh Kid Rock off! Remember when you were a tyke and you lost the Pop Warner game or screwed up your gymnastics team try-out? And your parents soothed your bruised ego by telling you that you’re still a winner to them and you could even be president someday if you wanted? That wasn’t just one of the thousands of lies your parents tell you when you’re a kid! Donald Trump is our president. Kid Rock can totally be a senator. Hell, Kid Rock could become POTUS!

If he did, I would hope he’d at least open every appearance screaming “MY NAME IS KKKKKKIIIIIIID ROCK!” from atop a monster truck while flanked by hookers on dirtbikes. It would be the only comfort a Kid Rock White House could afford us.

George Clooney Didn’t Want His Twins To Have “Dumb Names”

wenn32191715-500x739

Pilot Inspektor would like a word with you, George Clooney.

George is pushing that Suburbicon flick he directed alongside its star Matt Damon. They sat down with Entertainment Tonight, and George talked about the twins he had with his statuesque global superstar lawyer wife Amal Clooney in June. Clooney explained that they named the twins Alexander and Ella because Jermajesty and Phyllon Gor were already taken. No, it’s because he didn’t want his future put-upon celebrity children to have to deal with the burden of “dumb names.Ode Mountain, you have every right to be offended after reading this.

“We figured these kids are going to be looked at a lot and watched and [have their] every move sort of judged, and we wanted them to at least have a break with the names,” he reasoned. “So we looked for some sort of normal names. We didn’t have any great inspiration. It wasn’t Alexander the Great and Ella Fitzgerald.”

“Alexander Hamilton?” Damon inquired.

“It was Alexander Hamilton,” Clooney jokingly confirmed.

Well, I think his kids’ names are totally basic and uninspired,” sniffed Audio Science.

As new parents do, George went on to claim that his twins already have very distinct personalities. This is despite babies having next to no interest in expressing themselves beyond screaming due to hunger, fatigue, or having soiled a diaper. George’s kiki buddy Matt agrees with him that Alexander should already be enforcing the velvet rope at clubs. Translation: They both think Alexander Clooney is fat.

“[Alexander] is a thug already. You saw him,” he said to pal Matt Damon. “He’s a moose! Literally, he just sits and he eats.”

“He looks like he could bounce right now, some place in Hollywood,” Damon agreed.

“Like, checking IDs on the way into the nursery.”

As for Ella, she’s got Angelina Jolie eyes, looks like her crusading attorney mom, and is all about elegance. Obviously, George hasn’t touched a diaper yet.

“She’s very elegant, and all eyes. She looks like Amal, thank god.”

Because I don’t need anyone trying it when it comes to being the most beautiful face in this family,” George secretly thinks when he takes all of the copies of his 2006 “Sexiest Man Alive” issue of People from their hiding space in the carriage house to lovingly stroke.

Check out more pics of George Clooney promoting Suburbicon at the Venice Film Festival in the gallery below.

Game of Thrones: Rhaegar and Viserys Targaryen Are Practically Twins

Game of Thrones fans were rewarded with a major payoff in the season seven finale when Samwell Tarly and Bran Stark get together, pool their respective knowledge, and discover that Jon Snow is the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. It is revealed via a flashback to their wedding, now that Bran Stark can conveniently have flashbacks about all people and all places now that he’s the omniscient Three Eyed-Raven.

In the flashback, you may have felt a sense of deja vu looking at Rhaegar, with his wavy, flowing blond tresses. That’s because he’s the spitting image of his brother, Viserys, who was a character on Game of Thrones in season one — which was actually by design on the part of the creators.

«It was a little bit of a double take for everybody. (Laughs.) But they’re meant to look similar!,» director Jeremy Podeswa told The Hollywood Reporter of the resemblance. What’s interesting is that Podeswa goes on to say that it was important to the show to set the right tone with the wedding scene.

«[Rhaegar and Lyanna] had a proper marriage that was based on love. For me, it was important to present that scene in a kind of idyllic way, which was really unexpected,» says Podeswa.

Unexpected, indeed. It’s hard to reconcile the beautiful (albeit brief) scene of love and harmony with someone who looks so much like the awful, spoiled, abusive Viserys from season one. But perhaps Viserys would have been a very different person if he was not raised in exile across the Narrow Sea with the rest of his family dead save for his younger sister, Daenerys.

Either way, the casting and makeup/hair departments really earned their money with Wilf Scolding (Rhaegar), who does bear an uncanny resemblance to Harry Lloyd, who played Viserys. It isn’t just the platinum blond wig done in the same hairstyle; it’s the nose, mouth, and bone structure too. They could definitely pass for brothers. And actually, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) looks like she could be a member of the family too, for that matter.
