Jamie Foxx Working On Mike Tyson Biopic

9 10 2009

Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx in an interview with MTV revealed he’s serious about bringing the life of former World Heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson to the big screen. This has been one of those projects that has been rumored for years, but it seems like Foxx is kick starting it. In addition to making the rounds selling his interest in the project (with Tyson’s backing), but he wants to bring director Taylor Hackford on-board as well. Hackford directed Foxx in his Oscar-winning turn in Ray telling the story of legendary musician Ray Charles.

Foxx seemed to sympathize with the former boxer who is undergoing somewhat of a career revitalization in film.

“Look at society. Sometimes we put you up so high, and some people say it’s to get aim on you, but once you get up there it’s like: What do you do once you’re up there now?” Read the rest of this entry »

Watch It!: Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis Interviews Charlize Theron

8 09 2009

Between two Ferns

Everyone found out about the awesomeness that is Zach Galifianakis when they went to see The Hangover this summer, but even before that he started a series on Funny or Die called Between Two Ferns in which he performs the most awkward interviews you will find on the internet. Think “The Chris Farley Show” from SNL that allows cursing and instead of the host being in love with the subject, he can’t stand them. He has done six  episodes so far with actors like Michael Cera, Jon Hamm, and Natalie Portman, and today he has brought the beautiful Charlize Theron in and it is amazing for three reasons:

1)  Charlize Theron is super hot.

2)  Skinny dipping at wet thighs are discussed.
