Hey, remember that "Untitled Celebrity Death Pool Movie" starring Ken Jeong, the Hoff and Hulk Hogan? It just got even more unBeliebable. It seems David's old Knight Rider co-car KITT is in the movie, and he'll be voiced by everyone except George Takei's least-favorite Canadian. Justin Bieber will presumably be following in the proud tradition of George Clooney Bat-nipples as he screws up an iconic role even worse than Val Kilmer did*.
Check out the video in which a drunk-looking Hoff bobs back and forth explaining that he did an unspecified "favor" for Justin Bieber (let your imagination run wild on that one, folks), and was owed one back.
I wasn't paying much attention to the production of NBC's Peter Pan Live!, because honestly, why the fuck would anybody do such a thing?
Dammit! They had to go and cast Christopher Walken, and make him look like a plastic surgery nightmare. DAMN YOU NBC! Now I have to pay it some attention, and desperately hope everything else about it won't be terrible, even though it probably will be.
Were you expecting a more mature, reasoned assessment from me? NO! I WON'T GROW UP! Appropriate, right?

We probably didn't need yet another company to make Darth Vader, but it happened anyway. A few more things before everyone chips in...
-James Deen is presumably Dick Reckard in this NSFW Blade Runner porn pictorial.
-Bill Nye endorses this time-travel documentary Kickstarter.
-GWAR replaced Oderus Urungus with a woman named Vulvatron.
-David Ayer may do a Suicide Squad movie.
-Laser cannons on planes are already a thing.
-A Top Cat origin movie isn't the movie you need, but the prequel Mexico deserves.
-An L. Frank Baum biopic? Word to the wise - he's a little harder to whitewash than Disney in Saving Mr. Banks.
-Game of Thrones theme, '80s synth-style version, is the best thing today.
This one guy, on a little YouTube
Covers this song 'cause he's not a rube
Knows it's loved, won't get a yawn
As one by one, viewers log on
Blows up balloons for irony
To play like instruments, you see
It made me post, I gotta say
I like "99 Red Balloons" this way!
Following on the heels of having made REM, Kid Rock, Britney Spears and The Who, NECA's celebrity Simpsons line is quietly becoming the best and most diverse source of music action figures since the heyday of McFarlane. In addition to nerd icons Yankovic and Costello, the new series will include Tom Jones - who ought to liven up many a Mars Attacks! display - and the less-musical Buzz Aldrin.
I think my dream celebrity Simpsons figure would be Alan Moore. Can't imagine it would happen, but just take a moment to conceive of the display possibilities.More >>
Videos of Ohio State's marching band frequently go viral, as their elaborate tributes to things like video games and comic books hit the Internet's sweet spot. This past weekend, it was our favorite re-runs that got the tribute. From a large Bart Simpson skateboarding off a ramp to the Lone Ranger's horse Silver galloping across the football field, these living bits of choreography set to theme music tickle the eye and make you wonder how the hell the people on the ground can get so precise that a bird's eye view sees a moving cartoon made of human pixels.
It's a brilliant way to get people who'd never come to sports games otherwise to come support the home team. Or you could stay home and just watch the videos.More >>
It's Hangover time again! Start your week right with some of the best reader-submitted stories from the weekend, compiled with the help of Kyle LeClair. We'll start with the official medical marijuana tie-in to Kevin Smith's newest movie Tusk, pictured above.

I know given development timeframes, it is probably a coincidence, but that red coat, gold helmet and smartass wise-cracker underneath them, leading a small team while cranking classic rock on his personal playlist? It feels awfully convenient. In all likelihood, this commercial is probably more Guardians-like than the game. (Anybody else remember when Led Zeppelin music was almost impossible to license for anything?)
It is impressive, though - even if very little of what you see on the screen is technically live-action in any way.More >>
