Nothing in 2013 could be more dated than Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and their close-knit circle of literary wackos that called themselves the Beat Generation back in the 1950s, but there’s always a new gang of rebels without a cause to make movies about them that nobody wants to see.
Big Apple Idolatry
– In her continuing efforts to upstage that total biatch Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes decided to strip down in a tanning salon lobby in New York and run around screaming “I’m a retired multi-millionaire!!” Said an eyewitness, “There was definitely something wrong with her.” What do you think it was?
While the Met was swarmed by A-listers Monday night, we only heard news about Beyonce‘s dress this morning. Upstaged by the attendance of Tim Tebow, these celebrities dispersed to three locations the Met in order to fully dance away the pain: the Ukrainian Institute of America, the Boom Boom Room, and Crown all hosted parties that were hit up by roaming models, actors, and musicians.
Sex and Celebrities
Oh my Dumbledorfs: Daniel Radcliffe (or as we like to refer to him, the British Elijah Wood), has come out and admitted that he copulated with fans of his Harry Potter films during a recent interview with The Daily Mirror. No, he didn’t have sex during the interview…you know what we mean.
So while we’re all still reeling from the shock that the boy wizard drinks too much alcohol (and is not that funny at live comedy), now we have to come terms that some lucky Muggle got Harry’s wand in their ____ (whatever the magical apparatus equivalent of a vagina is).
Harry Potter is six feet under and Daniel Radcliffe is understandably looking for ways to move his career in new directions. Full frontal nudity all over the Internet and singing and dancing his way through a recent Broadway revival of the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying broadened his fan base beyond the teenybopper rut. Now he’s trying something else: a creepy haunted-house thriller crawling with ghosts from the spirit world called The Woman in Black. It’s not exactly a setback, but it won’t break new ground, either. I’ve had bigger scares from a fish tank. Boring and sedentary, not to mention only occasionally coherent, this creaking-door mystery is not much of a vehicle to display young Mr. Radcliffe’s range and charm.
Stars: They're Just Like Us
In the next issue of Bullett, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe opens up about performing nude in Equus (“some nights there would be some beautiful girl in the front row and I’d be like, Oh fuck, in two hours you’re going to have seen everything”) and whether he wants kids (yes!). In Read More
James Franco (and David Cross, John Turturro, et al) have reason to be worried: Harry Potter is about to smash your portrayal of New York beat poet Allen Ginsberg into dust. Daniel Radcliffe, fresh from filming the Victorian horror flick The Woman In Black has reportedly joined the cast of Kill Your Darlings (not to be confused with the 2006 flick with the same name) as the famous (and infamous) part of Jack Kerouac/Ginsberg/Lucien Carr trio.
This is it, kids. Absolutely, positively the end of the Harry Potter series. I feel good about that, knowing I will never have to sit through another installment. The franchise that started 10 years ago and seems more like 10 lifetimes ago has at last written an ultimate “The End.” I’ve outgrown Lilliputian witches and Read More
The area around super-classy apartment building One Morton Square, in the edge of West Village, has a fine array of well-stoked boîtes from which boozy revelers can choose from. Hell, the Olsen twins used to live there! But it wasn’t the best day for another of the spot’s celeb denizens — in the Read More
Where were you when you found out that Daniel Radcliffe had not received a Tony nomination? Surely not far into any of the articles about this morning’s nominee announcement (the actual nominees are here)! In a move akin to the Los Angeles Times illustrating a Jennifer Egan critics’ award win with Read More
