His appearance has been teased for a couple of weeks now, but we are just about ready to meet one of “Hannibal”‘s most famous supporting characters on NBC’s series adaptation of Thomas Harris’novels. HuffPo today posted the first picture of Michael Pitt as Mason Verger, who will be making his appearance in the May 2nd episode.

Mason’s appearance was first teased in last week’s episode, when his sister Margot Verger (Katharine Isabelle) took Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) on as her therapist and at the very top of the list of topics for discussion was her brother, briefly shown in shadow holding her down to the ground.

The first photo of this abusive rich kid – who will one day get his just desserts when he ends up disfigured beyond recognition (as played by Gary Oldman in the 2001 film “Hannibal”) – doesn’t tell us much, except that perhaps David Slade, who took the photo, may be stepping behind the director’s chair again for this episode. Then again, he’s a producer on the show as well, so perhaps he was just on set and decided to snap a photo.

“Hannibal” airs every Friday night at 10pm on NBC.

yay or nay?

'Modern Family' dad opens beer garden-esque restaurant in his adopted home of Salt Lake City

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- He plays a bumbling dad on ABC's "Modern Family," but in Salt Lake City Ty Burrell is trying out for a role as restaurateur.

Burrell has just opened Beer Bar, a beer garden-like eatery that serves 150 beers paired up with an array of house-made bratwursts, local breads and Belgian fries. The restaurant, which has high ceilings and long tables and benches to evoke that Bavarian beer hall feel, is next door to the cocktail bar Burrell co-owns with an equally simple name, Bar X.

"It's a super simple menu, which is what we wanted from the beginning," says Burrell, sporting a scruffy beard and glasses. "Basic, but well-made and local. Instead of putting the energy into a lot of elements, making sure you have fewer elements and you are taking the time to make them right."

Bad news, Mark Fan-danawiczes: Even though this Pawneean lives in Indiana’s greatest town, the chances of him paying another visit to the Parks department are slim to none.

Scratching your head right about now? Here’s a refresher: Way back when Parks and Recreation first premiered, Leslie Knope’s number one crush was hunky city planner Mark, played by indie film actor Paul Schneider. Mark was basically the Hoosier State’s answer to The Office‘s Jim Halpert — wry, boyish, bored to death by his job but forced by sitcom laws to spend all his free time with his co-workers. He never exactly jelled with the rest of the show’s cast, especially after Parks morphed from an Office clone into its own sweetly optimistic thing in season 2 — and, at the end of the series’ first full year, Mark and Schneider both left Parks for good.

Parks showrunner Michael Schur did leave the door open for Mark’s possible return somewhere down the line — but according to a new interview, Schneider isn’t exactly champing at the bit to go back to NBC. “That experience was very strange for me,” he told ScreenCrush on Tuesday. “You know, I signed up for a specific character that was changed in mid-season. And it became a character with a lot less to do. And, all of a sudden, I was kind of confused and kind of having a lot less to do.”

That too ambiguous for you? Try this on for size: “I’m not interested in going back,” Schneider continued. “I’ve never been contacted about that nor have I any interest in going back.”

Just don’t think the actor holds anything against his old employers. Schneider also noted that he’d have “no idea” how to “captain [a] ship” like Parks and praises the show for finally finding its footing — not to mention securing a cameo from “the f—ing First Lady.” And honestly, despite the success he’s had in smaller movies, Schneider may just be ready for a career change in general; ScreenCrush writer Mike Ryan calls him “an actor who honestly appears to want to be doing anything else with his life other than acting.”

Maybe he should consider a job in construction?


First the Burberry campaign, now the racy selfies – looks like good-girl Suki Waterhouse is following in fellow model Cara Delevingne’s footsteps.
The 22-year-old took to Instagram and Twitter today to post a picture of her and Cara fooling about post-shower, wearing a cutaway swimsuit that showed off a little underboob.
With the tongue-in-cheek caption ‘Pitwash,’ Cara’s omnipresent tongue was out too - this time licking her friend’s armpit.

Cameron Diaz says the world would smell better if people stopped using antiperspirant.

"I don't believe in antiperspirant," the actress told me at last night's premiere of her new comedy, The Other Woman (in theaters on Friday). "It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years."


"You're stinky, because you use antiperspirant," Diaz said. "It keeps all the stink in."

Even men should go without? Yup!

"Let it go and just trim your armpit hair so it doesn't hold onto the scent," Diaz said.

Diaz has been all about body hair these days. Earlier this month she cleared up her views about pubic hair after advising women in her book, The Body Book, to keep their vaginas "fully dressed."


It would look A LOT like this.

There was a period of time a while back when it felt as though movies based on video games were being announced every second day, to the point where I simply stopped caring and openly wondered whether a single one would actually make it to cinemas. As an experiment, Kotaku Australia publisher Danny Allen decided to collate a list of all the 'video game movies' currently in production. It is insane. Brace yourself. This is a long list.

But first, a disclaimer. Danny informs me that this list was produced based on an exhaustive search of every movie related rumour he could possibly find. Some could be legit, some could be based on complete hearsay. Some are super early in production, some are close to release.

Me, I just find some of the games on this list hilarious. A Gran Turismo movie? Really?

Our view of the coming Star Wars cast is getting better: instead of a big dark blur, we see a big bright blur.

Although pretty much every breathing actor or actress in Hollywood has been rumored for a role in the new trilogy of Star Wars films, Disney studio boss Alan Horn says they are finally getting close to revealing who will be populating that far, far away galaxy.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV, the chairman of the Walt Disney Studios teased and tantalized without saying a whole lot: Casting, he said, is “almost complete. We’re not prepared to announce it yet, but we will be very shortly announcing what we’re doing.”

they're just waiting till May 4th lbrCollapse )
