George W. Bush to Play Ronald Reagan...Kinda

Actor Will Ferrell
If Variety is to be believed, Will Ferrell could catch some serious heat for his new movie role. Rumor has it Will might be playing the beloved former President Ronald Regan with dementia. Did I mention it's supposed to be a comedy?

A description of the plot: "When Ronald Reagan falls into dementia at the start of his second term, an ambitious intern is tasked with convincing the Commander-In-Chief that he is an actor playing the President in a movie." 

And hijinks ensue? Allegedly, Lena Dunham and John Cho have already taken part in a live reading of the script. 

Will is no newbie when it comes to playing Presidents. His George W Bush is still noted as one of his best impressions from his SNL days.  



BUT this is still my favorite Will impression...

Caitlyn Jenner Gets Permission To Use The Bathroom From Trump?

Are we still on the bathroom thing? Okay, just checking. 

Presidential candidate Donald Trump said Caitlyn Jenner (formally Bruce Jenner) was welcome to use any restroom she wanted to at one of his buildings.

So she went to the bathroom and made a video about it.

In the Facebook video Caitlyn Jenner explained her wonderful bathroom experience. "Thank you, Donald, really appreciate it. And by the way, Ted [Cruz], nobody got molested!"



This bizarre video stems from transgender bathroom laws in states like North Carolina. The law says you must you the bathroom that conforms to your birth gender. Many businesses say they absolutely will not enforce such a measure by discriminating against customers but they will continue to make sure safety is a top priority for everyone.

Guess Which Snapchat Filter Allegedly Caused A Car Crash?

Snapchat on a smartphone
Snapchat filters are one of the signature pieces of the social network, but now one of them is part of a lawsuit.

The filter of concern is the one that shows how fast you are going.

It's fun when someone Snaps from an airplane and they're going 500+ miles per hour! But now a teen allegedly got into a car accident because they were trying to post a really high speed on Snapchat.

The lawsuit suggests that Snapchat should have known that people would drive too fast just to show a high speed. That's a big leap. Couldn't you just as easily snap a photo of the speedometer while you were driving that fast? Wouldn't that make the car manufacturer liable?

Don't get me wrong - I absolutely believe that people probably try and drive fast to get Snapchat to show the speed, but I don't think Snapchat is at fault for that.

The Unrated Version Of 'Batman V Superman' Is How Long!?!

Ben Affleck
In case the theatrical version wasn't long enough for you, the R-Rated home release of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will make you very happy. It's going to be 181 minutes, which clocks in at just above 3 hours. It's also going to be a little more violent, hence the R-Rating.

I don't mind when they make movies for home viewing that long, but let's keep the theater versions at around 2 hours. I like to spend $28 on a giant soda, and I know you won't pause the movie just for me to go to the bathroom.

Kobe Bryant Makes First Appearance Since Retiring, And It's A Prank

Kobe Bryant
Kobe Bryant's first appearance since retiring came on Ellen, and as she often does she used her guest for a prank.

The idea was that Kobe meets with an Aesthetician about Botox because he was sweating too much - That's the "real" reason he retired. Watch:



It's pretty well done - Ellen tells him what to say including things like, "I'd stand up but I'm too tall." Then it gets even better - I'm impressived Kobe was able to keep a straight face!

The Legacy of an Iconic Musical Genius....

It's been a week, yet the news of Prince's untimely passing has yet to sink in. I keep thinking I'm gonna suddenly be snatched out of my sleep and realize, 'Man, what kind of crazy dream was that?!' We always use the term 'Icon' when talking about most of today's long-standing, platinum-selling recording artists, but the term 'Iconic' doesn't seem to scratch the surface of the talent, the music, the social activisim, and pure genius of Prince Rogers Nelson. I've been a fan since his first album, 'For You', and remained a fan through all of his albums, hairstyle changes, and battles with his record label for the rights to his music...I was in Hawaii in 1996 and had the extreme pleasure of seeing him in concert during the 'Emancipation' tour when he had 'Slave' emblazoned on his right cheek. I was in the third row and screamed the entire night! One of the best concerts I had ever seen, which made me an even bigger fan. It would be 2011 before I would see him in concert again. "The Welcome 2 America' tour came to Greensboro coliseum and I was first in line to buy tickets, something I rarely do, but I was not about to miss Prince in concert! I'm sure my experiences are just like any other Prince fan, in that this loss is a bit hard to take, but I take comfort in knowing that the music and the legacy of one of the greatest artists of our time and beyond.....will live on.

Rest in Power.....Prince Rogers Nelson


Check out the video below of one of my favorite (too many to name) performances...this one from Prince's 'Rave Un2 the Year 2000' DVD:

Why #WomanCard Is Trending Today

Hillary Clinton
If you've seen #WomanCard trending anywhere today and wondered why, here's the story.

After his big wins on Tuesday, Donald Trump seems to be turning his attacks towards Hillary Clinton. He was quoted as saying that all Hillary has going for her is the "woman card." 

Hillary replied perfectly saying, "“If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in!”

If Trump Wins, These Celebrities Might Flee The U.S.

Donald Trump

Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland and Delaware all voted for Trump over Cruz and Kasich yesterday, giving him an even bigger lead in the party’s delegate count.

But this post isn't about politics, it’s about Hollywood. 

Several celebrities have come out saying if Donald is elected President, they will move out of the country. What will we do?

Girls star Lena Dunham now says she’ll move to Vancouver. “I can get my work done from there.” 

Other stars who have pledged to relocate if Trump wins the White House include Miley Cyrus, Jon Stewart, Samuel L. Jackson and Cher.

If a celebrity endorsement matters to you in your voting process, which it shouldn't, Kerry Washington, Chris Brown, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Josh Groban, Demi Lovato, Common, America Ferrera, Jack Black, Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller, Jennifer Lawrence, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Sarah Silverman, Shakira, Richard Gere, Bette Midler and Louis C.K. have all publicly denounced Trump.

No word yet on if anyone on that list is house shopping in Canada in an effort to be Lena's neighbor.

Are You Ready To Share Your 'STD Status' On Tinder?

Consumer with an iPhone

This is not totally crazy. Mately, a subscription-based STD testing service, is planning to launch an Indiegogo campaign for a dating app. They want to change how we date online to include an STD status. 

The idea is that members can privately share their STD test results with people who they meet on dating apps like Tinder.  

The promo video below makes a good point, “When it comes to our sexual health, shouldn't we have information we can trust?" 



In the video they describe the system as being perfect, but anyone with half a brain could find ways to cheat the system. Creepy, huh?
