Thank You Come Again!

Despite early leaks and the PR-mandated Internet scrub yesterday, it looks like we’ll be able to to watch the trailer of the Sundance hit Lovelace in time for the 4th of July.
Written by Andy Bellin, directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, and with an all-star cast including Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Chloe Sevigny, Adam Brody, Chris Noth, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple and yes–James Franco as Hugh Hefner–the story of Linda Lovelace, (aka Linda Susan Boreman) has already become a festival darling–it premiered at Sundance this year–and if this trailer is any indication, it will be a hit with mainstream audiences as well.
Red Carpet Real Estate
Thank you, come again! Two years after putting his Soho apartment on the market as a $16,000 a month (furnished) rental, The Simpsons voice actor Hank Azaria has finally sold the fifth-floor co-op.
