The Last Harry Potter Book Has Hit BitTorrent

Harry Potter Book Leaked Online, Where to Find It

Yup, that’s right. Like a Tori Amos album, this thing leaked days before its planned release date.

I’m not going to tell you where to get it.

But if you know where to look for BitTorrents, you know where to look for this.

Oh, who am I kidding? This is a gossip blog., guys.

Update: This thing is pretty worthless. I’m not a big Harry Potter fan, but I went ahead and downloaded it just to see if anyone dies. But basically someone just took photos — from pretty far away — of all the pages. It’s barely readable. I’m sure someone will strain their eyeballs and figure out what happens, but that someone’s not going to be me. One of the page photos is after the jump if you want to see what it looks like. You’ll have to click on it a few times to see it full-size.

NBC is Hitting Up ABC’s Sloppy Seconds

Isaiah Washington Signs Deal with NBC to Guest Star in Bionic Woman

Isaiah Washington’s getting passed around Hollywood like a high-school cheerleader.

After ABC dumped him for calling co-star T.R. Knight a “faggot” (and then repeating the word in a freakin’ press conference), it looked as though Isaiah was on the fast track to an E! True Hollywood Story, but it appears he may be have been given a second chance. NBC, for whatever reason, has decided they want to work with the infamously difficult actor on their new series The Bionic Woman.

Washington will play a mysterious figure who is brought into the enigmatic scientific organization behind the “bionics” that transform Jamie, and whose own agenda is unclear as he instructs her on how to handle her new abilities.

Here’s the thing, though: they’re not signing him on to be a permanent member of the cast. He’ll have a five-episode arc as a guest star, and my guess is, with his current image crisis, they got him for bottom-of-the-barrel prices. And look! We’re all writing about The Bionic Woman today! So this looks to me like a pretty smart PR blitz on NBC’s part rather than a genuine desire to work with Isaiah. However:

NBC said the network also is developing a separate “action-series” project with Washington based on an idea from the actor.

I can just picture this pitch session.

ISAIAH: So I have this great idea for a series. It’s an action series.
NBC: Okay, shoot.
ISAIAH: It’s kind of like a Heroes theme, but with me.
NBC: Go on …
ISAIAH: Picture this: a time traveler from the future comes back to the current day to warn me that the human race is on the brink of extinction.
NBC: Why is the human race on the brink of extinction?
ISAIAH: Because men don’t have sex with women anymore! They are only having sex with men! So no babies are being born! It’s awful!
NBC: Um … so you’re saying that …
ISAIAH: And it is up to me to stop this!
NBC: Look, Isaiah …
ISAIAH: I must do anything and everything in my power to save the human race from annihilation by stopping man-on-man sex!
NBC: We just don’t think this will …
ISAIAH: And all I have to do it with is a billy club!
NBC: Okay. Look. We’re going to take this back to our writers and change it around a bit. We’ll get back to you.

Is This Paris Hilton’s New Guy?

Meet Tyler Atkins.

He’s 21 years old. He’s the designer behind Kitson fave t-shirt line Rock Stars & Angels. And he may be fucking Paris Hilton.

According to the Daily News, Paris and Tyler were “making out like teenagers” at a recent Malibu beach party.

On June 20, Tyler said the following about hanging out with a “famous chick” in the Hollywood Hills an interview:

She’s like a full pill-popper … she brought out these pills and because I was drunk I went, ‘Yeah, fuck it – I’ll just have one. Why not?’ And she gave me like four of these pills that were like Vicodin; they were like Rohypnols or something. Heavy, heavy. And she drugged me, this famous chick. … I woke up in her spa bath with her and her best friend. We were in the spa bath, full-on threesome. And then I don’t remember anything else. I remember waking up at 5 o’clock in the afternoon in between them both … I couldn’t find my clothes in the whole house. [I was] just tripping, just going, ‘What did this girl give me?’ It was gnarly, eh? I woke up from like banging on the door … because she had to go to set, and she’s meant to be at set at like 3 o’clock and it’s just that loose that it’s 5 o’clock and they’re still passed out. I didn’t know to open the door or what. I had these shitty girls’ clothes on, just tripping. I couldn’t find my clothes. I got dropped down on Sunset Blvd. … I had no minutes left on my phone, so I couldn’t call anyone. Looking like a freak in girls’ clothes.

I don’t know what Paris’s thing is with plucking these younger guys out of obscurity for five minutes and then ditching their asses. I seriously think she gets off on giving them a little taste of her special brand of glory and then shoving them back into their former, mundane existences. Like, “Look how awesome I am. Now you can’t have it anymore.” I used to laugh at these guys; now I just feel bad for them.
