Jamie Foxx Blames The State Of Comedy For Why We Might Not Ever See His 2016 Film “All-Star Weekend” In Which Robert Downey Jr. Plays A Mexican Man
As Variety reports, Jamie Foxx says his 2016 directorial feature debut, All-Star Weekend, a comedy starring Foxx and Jeremy Piven as “two best friends who win tickets to the annual NBA event” whose road trip to LA is “upended by a handful of wacky characters,” might never be released due to the “current state of comedy.” Jamie apparently doesn’t think we can handle a wacky character like “Mexican Stranger,” played by Robert Downey Jr. Alas, it seems the so-called woke mob has struck again. First, they came for The Alamo, but I was not a history major and am unclear on how exactly that played out— so I said nothing. Then they came for Señor Frog’s Cinco de Mayo $2 margarita special, but I did not have one near me— so I said nothing. Then they came for my Mexican pizza and I said, OH HEEEEELL NO!— And they brought it back. So obviously the point here is that if Jamie wants All-Star-Weekend to ever see the light of day, he needs to recast “Mexican Stranger” with Doja Cat and do some reshoots.
The movie stars are revolting! The movie stars are revolting! Mickey Mouse is currently in the gym, doing crunches, working on his footwork, and punching a bag held by Coach Goofy, because he’s preparing for his upcoming legal tussle with Scarlett Johansson over Disney releasing Black Widow on its streaming service the same day it was released in theaters. Mickey may have to step up his training because there’s a chance star of Cruella Emma Stone may tag-team in by filing her own lawsuit against Disney too. But while ScarJo’s lawsuit is over her losing out on multi-million dollar box office bonuses thanks to Disney’s simultaneous release of Black Widow on Disney+, Gerard Butler’s lawsuit has nothing to do with shit like that. His lawsuit takes us back to a simpler time in 2013 when we were free of both COVID-19 and a zillion streaming services. Gerard is suing because he believes he was cheated out of $10 million in profits from 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen. Good luck to those producers, because one of the Rules of Life is: Never ever mess with a dude who fucked in a Porta-Potty at Coachella.
The wildfires currently raging through California have been devastating, despite their cute-sounding names (Camp Fire in the north, which has me picturing teenagers singing Kumbaya in a circle, and Woolsey Fire in the south, which makes me picture the same thing but with more blankets and sweaters). The fires have proven that fire doesn’t care who you are, it’s going to rip through your house and leave a pile of ashes. It was previously reported that the fires claimed Caitlyn Jenner’s house, but that was wrong info. Caitlyn’s house still stands, but many others weren’t so lucky.
…That’s her job! As with any celebrity feud these days, Gerard Butler may have ruffled some feathers with a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live. He made it sound like he had no idea she was on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (and prone to cameo on just about any other reality show that will take her). So he was surprised after their casual hook-up to get mobbed by TMZ wondering what his housewives tagline would be (my suggestion: “These broads aren’t the only ones who look good in a skirt!”) since he had no idea what a Brandi Glanville even is. Naturally, she took it like a champ. Cough. Continue reading
Gerard Butler made his Watch What Happens Live debut where he chopped it up with Andy Cohen and guest 50 Cent. During the “Plead The Fifth” segment, Gerard revealed that he’d rather kiss and tell on his lady co-stars than tattle on himself. After refusing to answer the question “name one movie you did strictly for the paycheck”, Andy moved on and asked him who was the better kisser; Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie. I guess insulting the makers of Playing For Keeps was scarier to him than facing the wrath of Angie Jo because Gerard named Jennifer as the the better smootcher!
Liev Schreiber and Gerard Butler are both famous dudes with brown hair in their late 40s who are famous for playing tough macho types that either yell or talk in a low whisper. It sounds like they can add something else to the list of things they have in common. On Wednesday, Liev was spotted strolling around Los Angeles with his arm around Gerard Butler’s on-again/off-again girlfriend Morgan Brown.
