First Donald Faison and now Lindy Booth, man I can't wait for Kick-Ass 2. It'd also be so cool if they were to get Jim Carrey in on that.

it'd be better if Jim Carrey did Dumb and Dumber 2 instead.

Agreed, and it would be a great comeback for his dwindling career

I actually like the Killing Them Softly poster featured in that link. I think it speaks well to Domink's directing style. Not much concept to the design, but it's simple. Assassination of Jesse James was fucking amazing.

agreed...on all points. i think the poster is neat, somewhat different. It doesn't fall into the category of cliche movie-poster.

I think the Killing Them Softly post would be better if the words "Brad Pitt" was removed. Don't know why it bothers me.

And what. Did not know that As I Lay Dying was experiencing a screen adaptation. Really skeptical if I like what Franco will do with that.

I'm really curious for how they'll close The Office. A huge reunion with Michael would be amazing. RIP, though; one of my favorite shows of all time, and those Christmas episodes always made me feel happy. Now I can get the entire boxset or something.
