Bloom vs. The Biebs

Oh, to have been in Ibiza, Spain over the weekend...

Word from there says that actor Orlando Bloom (of Pirates of the Caribbean fame) threw a punch at Justin Bieber.

What happened prior to the punch is a case of he said/ she said. Orlando’s people say that Justin made a rude comment about Orlando’s ex. Justin’s people say that Orlando got in The Biebs’ face.

Either way, Orlando’s not saying much. But The Biebs is doing what he can to keep it fresh, posting this picture of Orlando to Instagram. No caption, but suggesting he’s a crybaby.
 
To keep things in perspective, this is the shot Justin posted to Instagram just before that, showing him hopping onto a plane, obviously on his way to record “Pants on the Ground.”

You Could Have at Least Given Them Some Lobster

A three-hour whale watch tour off the coast of Massachusetts turned into an overnight ordeal for 157 passengers the other night.

The whale-watching boat failed to spot some lobster traps about 16 miles out, and got caught up in their lines.

It took until morning to free the boat. The Coast Guard had two ships stationed near the marooned vessel, providing food, water and blankets to the passengers, so except for being at sea a lot longer than they expected, everything ended up okay.

But here’s a lesson for you: whenever something’s labelled a “three-hour tour” and it involves the ocean, you might invoke the Gilligan Rule and stay on dry land.

Garth Brooks Makes Atlanta Number 2

51st Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards - Inside
Country singer Garth Brooks is planning a comeback world tour. So far, he’s doing okay with the plans.

On Friday, he sold out ten shows in Chicago, the first stop on his tour.

Yesterday, he announced that his second stop will be the Philips Arena in Atlanta. The tickets go on sale next week, and it’s expected that multiple shows will be available by then.

Garth’s wife Trisha Yearwood will perform with him at all of his concerts. The tour is expected to last up to two years.

Which makes them the more durable country version of Beyonce and Jay Zee.

Girls Girl to Play Peter Pan

NBC has finally announced who’ll be playing the title role in their live-action performance presentation of Peter Pan on December 4.

Allison Williams, who plays Marnie on the HBO dramedy Girls, will put on the green costume and fly off to Neverland.

She says she’s wanted to play Peter Pan since she was about three years old, so the casting is a dream come true.

NBC’s chairman of entertainment says Allison will “bring the perfect blend of ‘boyish’ vulnerability and bravado to save the day.”

Did he just call the Girls girl a boy?

Here’s the good news: Christopher Walken already signed on as Captain Hook, otherwise Lena Dunham could have ended up in the role.

Not a Good Day to be Wearing White Slacks

Two folks traveling on a highway in the Boston area had the (fill in the blank) scared out of them yesterday morning when an unsecured ax flew off the landscaping track they were riding behind and smashed through their windshield.

Luckily, the ax didn’t go all the way through and the head sort of stuck on the dashboard – directly in front of the passenger’s face.

The truck’s driver was fined $200 for not completely securing his load.

They should also make him pay for new pants for both the motorist and the passenger.

Did You Get Caught in the Sharknado 2?

It seems like the folks at the Syfy Channel know what they’re doing when it comes to flying sharks terrorizing a major city.

Last year, Sharknado took a funnel cloud filled with sharks and unleashed it on the West Coast. Last night, Sharknado 2 did just about the same thing on the East Coast – this time plopping a bunch of snapping Jaws-like creatures on the Big Apple.

An hour or so after it aired last night, Hollywood Life wondered if it might be the best worst movie ever - “… so bad, it’s good…” is what they had to say.
Ian Ziering, one of the franchise players, hopes there’s a third installment on the way. “Sharkpocolypse Now!” is what he’s praying for.

The Twitterverse went nuts with commentary all night long at #Sharknado2TheSecondOne.

One of my favorite tweets came from the Ocean Conservancy. Check it out. And wait til next summer, I guess.

Russell Brand vs. Ken Doll

Sean Hannity recently had a segment on his Fox News show called “Sympathy for the Terrorists.” Some think that his stance favors one side over the other, to the point where he shouted loudly at the guest who opposed his viewpoint.

For some reason, Russell Brand recorded himself reacting to the segment, tearing it apart bit by bit.

And at the top of it, he said that Hannity “does look a bit like the Ken doll in the Toy Story 3 film.” Of course, Brand didn’t want to appear “petty” or “trivial.”

Which is good. Otherwise, he might land a show on Fox News, mightn’t he?

Check out the video – see what you think.
