7Law & Order Switching It Up Again

Jesse L. Martin Leaving Law & Order, Pictures, Photos

After spending nearly nine years on the series, total hottie Jessie L. Martin will be leaving Law & Order later this season. No word yet on how his character will make his exit.

Martin will be replaced by K-Ville star Anthony Anderson, who pulled some shifts on L&O’s sister series, SVU, when Mariska Hargitay was on maternity leave.

It appears Martin’s leaving the series to focus his energies on his film career — he’s signed on to play the starring role in the Marvin Gaye biopic, Sexual Healing, set to begin production in the spring.

11Lindsay Lohan to Be Gainfully Employed Once Again


It’s not that posing for soft porn under the guise of art isn’t a career, exactly, but it appears Miss Lindsay Lohan is looking to step it up a notch.

Lindsay’s signed on to co-star with Jack Black in Ye Olde Times, a comedy about two dueling Renaissance Faire troupes.

You read that right: Two. Dueling. Renaissance Faire. Troupes.

Are we coming up with film plots by playing mad libs these days, guys? Or just for the ones that are Lohan vehicles?

7I’d Marry George Clooney

George Clooney Predicts No Oscar

Clooney knows he’s doomed at The Oscars come Sunday telling People Magazine:

“For me, it’s like being Hillary Clinton,” says the Michael Clayton star. “If it weren’t for Barack Obama, it would have been a very good year.” Adds Clooney: “I thought Daniel Day-Lewis had the best performance of the year.”

Dan Day-Lewis is already shining his Oscar as we speak. But Clooney would have given a far more entertaining speech I’m sure.

As for Clinton/Obama… well, March 4th is still in play. After that things might get a little clearer. But probably not.

24Oscar Pool Suggestions… If You’re Interested

Many people enter an Oscar contest each year. Many fewer have any idea what they’re doing. So allow me to present to you the current Oscar odds (yeah, you can bet on Oscar… you can’t bet on damn near anything). This will tell you where picking an underdog is a good gamble versus where picking one is a big ol’ mistake. I’m only listing nine categories so this doesn’t go novella length. Here we go after the jump. Wheeee!

5Simmons Strikes Back

Ok, not really. But Gene will be suing the hell out of some folks over this whole sex tape thing.

His website states:

You may have heard of seen garbage that has sprung up from my past. Rest assured the proper legal team is looking at all the ramifications and options.

Huh. A few things I’d love to point out:

1) That sure sounds like a confirmation to me.
2) Proper legal team? How many are there?
3) As far as options… just go ahead and sue. Why not? You’ve got to have a better legal team than most and you can just allege they made you feel bad.

Here’s the screenshot, doing a thumbnail because it’s big.
