The Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows Trailer is Here!

Is it me, or do there seem to be a fair amount of good movies coming out over the next few months to a year? Maybe I’m just drunk off of all the Harry Potter nonsense, but I’m seeing film for the remainder of 2011 and into 2012 through the rosiest glasses possible.

Take the newest Sherlock Holmes film. I mean, it looks GREAT. I don’t even LIKE Jude Law, and my girl Rachel McAdams isn’t even in this one, but in spite of that stuff, I am totally looking forward to seeing this in theaters. It looks amazing.

Also? I think Robert Downey Jr. makes a damn handsome woman. If that fact in itself isn’t enough to make you want to run out and see this movie, well. I guess all of your priorities are just wrong, friend.

Love It or Leave It: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Burberry Body

So the lovely Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was recently asked to be the spokesmodel for the new Burberry Body perfume, and I have to say: good choice. I mean, who better to lie around naked in a thin trench coat than one of the hottest tickets in the world right now?

The shoot was directed by Mario Testino.  No word on whether or not Shia LaBeouf is coming out with a hand-clapping, jumping-up-and-down “Ooh ooh I slept with her, too!” statement, but at this point, I’m thinking not: I definitely believe that her boyfriend, the Transporter, could probably mash Shia into grimy little ant residue in, like, a second flat even if he IS Indiana Jones’ son.

Are you guys loving Rosie here? Me, all I can say is “thank you, Transformers 3 for bringing a dream to life.”

Ted Danson Joining the Cast of ‘CSI’

Emmy-winning Ted Danson is probably television’s greatest actor—definitely better than Dennis Farina, John Larroquette, even Frasier. Hell, Ted Danson is better than Bronson Pinchot and Michael Chiklis combined.

So Laurence Fishburne is leaving his roost as CSI’s newest lead—did you even know Morpheus starred on CSI?—and Ted Danson is slated to replace him:

“From the moment we all started talking about the role, it was clear he couldn’t be more perfect,” said executive producer Don McGill. “Intelligence, wit, warmth, depth of character and emotion, he brings it all. And now he’ll have to bring latex gloves, too.”

Can you even imagine Ted Danson as a forensic scientist? No? That’s OK. According to Entertainment Weekly, CBS also propositioned Tony Shalhoub, John Lithgow, and Robin Williams. Listen, I am on-top-of-the-world. I haven’t been this excited since James Spader scored a role on The Office last month.
