Are We Getting That ‘Watchmen’ Show From HBO? Why?

During this weekend’s Vulture Festival LA, Damon Lindelof talked about his current project, a TV version of Watchmen for HBO. Why is he doing this? In part because he loves comics. His dad was «a huge comic book junkie» who used to take Damon and his mom to tons of conventions and «so I have this huge love for comics.»

And in the mid-80s, he gave me the first issue of Watchmen and said «this is too mature for you, probably inappropriate for you, but I think you can handle it.» And it just crackled with electricity and dealt with the phycological realism of the superhero genre that I had fallen in love with….

Watchmen was this … It was dangerous. …This is dangerous times and we need dangerous shows. What we think about superheroes is wrong. I love the Marvel movies and we saw Justice League this morning and I’m all for Wonder Woman and Batman. I grew up with these characters and I love these characters but we should not trust people who put on masks and say that they are looking out for us. if you hide your face you are up to no good.

As for what they’re trying to do with the show, Lindelof noted: «Alan Moore is the greatest writer in the history of comics, maybe one of the greatest writers of all time, and while he certainly doesn’t want us to be doing it, we’re trying to find a way of doing this that honors him.»

And from Lindelof’s perspective, it sounds like the show is not a given yet, as he noted that «it’s more timely now in 2018, 2019, whenever the show actually airs, if it airs.»

Open Post: Hosted By Dacre Montgomery From “Stranger Things” Getting A Spray Tan

screen-shot-2017-11-18-at-2-14-52-pm

Dacre Montgomery (pronounced Day-ker),) is the hard-bodied Australian actor who plays the wackjob bully with the ASTOUNDING wig on Stranger Things S2. (That wig should be in the credits. It should probably come before Winona Ryder.) A makeup artist on the show posted this video on Instagram of her giving Dacre’s chest a little color. For those of you who are thirsty and into sinewy types with mullets, this fap’s for you.

Hornet:

In her Instagram post — which has now been viewed over 6.2 million times — Hindsgaul mentions that Montgomery’s abs are real. You can also tell from the curve in his jeans that he has a nice butt too — just sayin’.

Personally, he’s such a prick on the show that I spend too much time wanting his character to die to notice his bod. I’m such a liar – I totally notice his bod. As if anything short of a funeral would cause me to stop being thirsty. And it would probably have to be the funeral of a family member or friend. Maybe not even then. *sad-face* Watch the vid below.

Stranger Things: Seriously, Though, When Are We Getting Season 3?

By now, you’ve probably watched Stranger Things season two. In fact, according to a ratings report, by the end of the first weekend, over 15 million people had watched the season two premiere, each individual episode averaged 4 million viewers apiece, and over 350,000 people watched the whole season in 24 hours. Which means we’re all ready for season three. But just when should we expect it?

Unfortunately, there is no official release date yet (and probably won’t be for a while). But examining the season two production schedule should provide some clues — season one, not so much, since that was entirely in the can before anyone had even heard of Stranger Things.

For season two, the cast returned to set for its first table read on Nov. 4, 2016. So the first season three table read could be taking place any time now.

However, one big difference is that at this point last year, the cast was largely done doing press for season one because the season had dropped over three months prior. This time around, season two is only a week old, so the cast is still embroiled in all the press that comes with the release of a new season. That is probably pushing the production schedule back a bit.

Earlier this year, season two then wrapped filming on June 3, 2017, according to social media posts by various cast members, like Finn Wolfhard’s adorable Instagram of Joe Keery and a chihuahua.

If season three wraps at the same time, we would expect to see it premiere around Halloween 2018 like season two did, but if season three isn’t in production yet, it might be pushing the production schedule to get it done by June. Season two took seven months to film nine episodes, then four months of post-production. If season three takes that long, October might not be feasible. It all depends on how fast the creators can shoot and produce the season.

However, Halloween is such a natural time of year for Stranger Things to drop that it seems like a waste not to use it. So we would be very surprised if Stranger Things drops any later than Friday, Oct. 26, 2018.

As for future seasons, there aren’t any set in stone yet, but the creators have said if they can, there will «be at least four,» and «there could be more,» they recently told Entertainment Weekly.

This Is Getting Messy — The Weeknd Is Spotted Leaving Ex Bella Hadid’s NYC Apartment

By now, you’re probably aware that The Weeknd and Selena Gomez have broken up and that Selena has since rekindled her romance with ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. Well, over the weekend, The Weeknd proved he’s doing just fine when he was photographed at an LA nightclub with none other than Justin’s ex-girlfriend, model Yovanna Ventura. But wait, there’s more! In a move we never saw coming, The Weeknd was spotted leaving ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid‘s NYC apartment on Tuesday night.

Bella and The Weeknd dated on and off from 2015 to 2016. Given the fact that Bella has previously stated that there are no hard feelings between them and that The Weeknd is her «best friend,» the meetup could simply be just two friends catching up — but based on the singer’s surprising move over the weekend, it looks like it could be something more. We’ll let you decide.

“Big Little Lies” Is Getting A Second Season

Premiere of HBO's 'Big Little Lies' - Arrivals

Big Little Lies walked away with a closetful of Emmys this year, and HBO did the wise thing and decided to let everyone appreciate it for the art it was and tucked it away in the vault next to The Sopranos. Kidding, they’re totally bringing it back for a second season.

TVLine says their sources are saying HBO wants to start production in spring 2018 for season 2. BLL Executive Producer and writer Mr. Michelle Pfeiffer David E. Kelley told TVLine they were nearing scheduling stage:

“We’re kicking around ideas and trying to lasso the talent [and] get the band back together. It’s just a lot of logistical things. But I’m optimistic because everyone wants to do it. We feel we still have storytelling to do. No decision has been made yet, but we’re hopeful. Where we left it, I felt like it did open the opportunity for a lot more storytelling.”

Translation: “We won eight Emmys, and now Reese Witherspoon wants her turn with the Best Actress statue.

Reese is going to be double-dipping on the boob tube, as she’s also attached to do that morning show drama with Jennifer Anniston. That show was just picked up for two seasons by Apple. HBO remains tight-lipped on if Big Little Lies is coming back. Jean-Marc Vallée, the show’s director, didn’t see a future for the show beyond its initial limited run, but pretty much everyone else is ready to go – even Miss Shailene “I’m more of a reader” Woodley.

On the one hand, I’m glad. I only like Nancy Meyers movies because of all the real estate porn, but she hasn’t been cranking out those middle-aged divorcee films like she used to. Big Little Lies was a gift from above because I could drink white wine from the box in ratty pajamas on my couch and watch Laura Dern swill Malbec wearing this season’s Escada while on her seaside patio. Stars…they’re just like us!

Some are pissy because the show was billed as a “limited series” (and won all its awards under that guise!), so coming back for a second season is a liiiiiitle bit of a cheat move. Obviously (SPOILER ALERT) Alexander Skarsgard will probably not be back for season 2. But I hope his  floppy prosthetic wiener makes a guest appearance or two.

Greg Norman Seems LIT, Bama Getting Middle Fingered & Mike Vick Jerseys

Need a good read today before the Ric Flair 30 for 30?

Read this on how a minor league baseball guy ended up becoming an autograph forger. There’s a part about how the guy paid Bama players to sign autographs (*cough cough*) and then he eventually moves to Vegas and autographs items to fuel a Vegas lifestyle.

The best part: the forger is an Ohio Man.

Josh Gordon Opens Up On Getting Loaded Before Games & Jerkoff Browns Fans Being Jerkoffs

Instagram Photo

Josh Gordon, who is about to come back to the NFL after yet another suspension, sat down with GQ for an interview where he definitely opened up about his life with booze, weed and pills.

You know the basic Gordon story: Can’t stay sober, fails tests at an alarming rate, incredible skills, Cleveland Browns best player that never plays. If you think what Gordon had to say about Cleveland will scare off Browns fans, you’re nuts. These people are already in a bad relationship. This is like an estranged wife talking shiit about her husband. One thing leads to another and they make up. Browns fans actually like being talked to like this. Real Talk Express. See below.

From GQ:

How many of your games would you estimate that you had something in your system for?

Every game. Probably every game of my career.

What about college? I think you know how he responded to that question.

How much did all of the noise and criticism get to you?

A lot. Every day. That’s why I had to move out of Cleveland. I went to Gainesville specifically because I thought there’d be nobody there that would know who I was. Living in Cleveland, sometimes it could be a nightmare. I’ve been harassed, had drinks thrown at me. I’ve been [followed] in the grocery store, heckled everywhere. At the games, people harassed and heckled my brothers and my mom. [My] brothers got into fights in the stands. Cars [have] been jumped on. Somebody dented the hood of the car. Had to sue a guy and get the money back cause he damaged the car. People are throwing money, pennies, to break the windows. So Cleveland was rough, man.

The full interview is worth your time. Check it out.

How is this relationship going to go if Gordon returns to the Browns lineup in Week 13? Could push him right back to the weed and booze. Might be best to send him to like New England for the playoffs.

Gordon hasn’t caught a regular season pass since December 21, 2014.

Here’s your 2018 World Series odds

Coming off that awesome World Series already has me ready to go for the 2018 playoffs. I’m thinking next year we skip the shitty regular season and just fast forward to the good stuff. I wouldn’t mind just having Houston and LA run it back again. But for now we wait, so let’s look at some odds.

Via SI:

The Dodgers, who had baseball’s best record and highest payroll last season, open as 5–1 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

Houston is a 6–1 favorites along with the Cleveland Indians.

Washington Nationals (7-1) and New York Yankees at 8-1 are the next highest favorites, with the The Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs coming in at at 10–1.

The Arizona Diamondbacks, who won one for the NL’s Wild Card spots along with the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals have 20–1 odds.

Sam Smith Almost Falls Out of His Chair After Getting Back-to-Back Scares on Ellen

Sam Smith may be too good at goodbyes, but he is not very good at surprises. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, the singer had a serious conversation with the host about why he thinks his house is haunted. As he talked about how he’s not frightened by the ghosts in his home, he got the ultimate scare from someone dressed up as — what else? — a ghost. And that’s not even the best part. Less than 20 seconds later, he got spooked by another person hiding in the coffee table beside him. Looks like he really is afraid of ghosts, after all. See his hilarious reactions above!
