In Which The Man In Me Will Do Nearly Any Task And As For Compensation There’s Little He Would Ask

You Get The Face You Deserve

by Molly Lambert

First off: Attention Ryan Gosling lovers, we heard some hot goss that the Gos was spotted dining in Red Hook with none other than Ms. Michelle Williams! Think about the potential flaxen hawtness of that couple. And then pour some out for poor Rachel McAdams. I hate to see Alpha Females pitted against one another over a dude.

But look if it’s already on, Gosling needs to make The Harry Nilsson Story and Michelle Williams (who pwns Claire Danes in the crumple face cry competition) should be the woman who dumps Nils so hard he’s moved to record his famous cover of Badfinger’s “Without You.” I’m thuper therial about this.

Does it really even count as scabbing when the script practically writes itself?

Maybe I’ll just swing by the Valley, see my man P.T. Anderson, run it by him. He’s probably tuckered out from Ghoulardi season. We can shoot all the concert stuff at Largo, wtih Ryan singing Harry like his Blond Method Actor predecessor Val Kilmer in The Doors. Jason Schwartzman can finally play Keith Moon, and the scene where he overdoses at Harry’s London flat will surely clinch him a Best Supporting Actor nom. Maybe Keanu as John Lennon since he’d just have to act stoned anyway.

Round out the cast with John C. Reilly as Randy Newman, get Phillip Seymour Hoffman in there as Brian Wilson at the height of his craziness and bloat, Nikki Blonsky as Mama Cass, and William H. Macy as Van Dyke Parks. Score by Jon Brion with Gosling’s covers and Nilsson’s originals on a separate soundtrack (Gosling Sings Nilsson Sings Newman), merchandized Luxury Drinking Bathrobes for sale in the Arclight lobby. Ryan bb, don’t lose a pound. Hollywood, endless gems like these are yours for the buying at bargain basement prices whenever the the WGA strike ends!

Second off: SHIA! My crush on him so far has been mostly talk, but nothing instantly ramps up a guy’s hotness like a rap sheet! I hope I look that good when I’m arrested for WordPress crimes.

Thirdz of all: God damn it Steve Coogan. Just when I want to hate you most, you do a cameo on Curb Your Enthusiasm that reminds me of the Alan Partridge I first fell in love with.

Speaking of charismatically amoral superseducers, the Jezebels have a great post about this nutty Elle reporter on Alex Carnevale…erm, Bill Clinton:

His intellectual and humanistic appetites remain voracious, and when his gaze sweeps the dinner table and catches you, you feel as if you have been X-rayed by the eye of Sauron, the flabbiness of your own cerebrum exposed.

Whoa whoa whoa, Hillary is rumored to be fucking John Cusack’s GF Huma? That sounds way too good to be true.

1. Tea

2. The Kinks

3. Moby Dick (this won’t really help at all, but it’s AWESOME and you should probably give in to the darkness anyway)

Speaking of getting the face you deserve, Ethan Hawke looks like his soul.

Heath has a Gournal: Here too was his Joker diary, which he began compiling four months before filming began. It is filled with images and thoughts helpful to the Joker back story, like a list of things the Joker would find funny. (AIDS is one of them.) Mr. Ledger seemed almost embarrassed that the book had been spotted, as if he had been caught trying to get extra credit in school.

Batman Dylan vs. Joker Dylan = Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts?

Molly Lambert is Senior Editor of This Recording. She thinks it’s funny that Heath Ledger kept a Joker diary.
