The star of The Lonely Lady is dead. Not Pia Zadora, the guy who was her mentor. He also starred in Manimal that same year! (Lloyd Bochner was his name, and he was a solid character actor for 50 years.)

Here's a tantalizing tidbit: Wicked (2007) will be written by Charlie Kaufman and ... Roger Ebert! Spike Jonze will direct. I had heard that Kaufman and Jones were going to do a "horror movie," but this Ebert thing is a new wrinkle.

The Weekend Warrior's prediction for the weekend of Nov 4-6
  • He thinks Chicken Little will top 30 mill, with Jarhead coming in about 18.
  • He thinks Good Night and Good Luck will rise to seventh place in an expansion to 1000 theaters. (I would not be surprised if it finished as high as fifth, assuming Warrior is right about the thousand theaters - a number which Box Office Mojo contradicts.)

Speaking of the thin line between real news and satire - this is an actual headline from the Toronto Sun: "Penis size used as defence in trial ... Accused claims he's too large to have committed sexual assault."

Apparently, there's a virus attached to this site. At least, that's what my Norton deleted upon visiting the link.

No viruses as far as I could tell (using Norton 2005 w/definitions updated on the 31st of Oct.)

There are ALOT of popups though, maybe that's what Norton had a fit with on your computer.

Good call Scoop, she's one of my favorite Lara Crofts.
