There’s lots of drama in the office of David Newman, cool-ass film agent and dude who lunches simply to be seen. His assistant is quitting to work for his competitor, his clients are falling for the wrong partners, and his pals break up via text-message. Worst of all? He’s got the big-time hots for the agent who prowls the penthouse office.

Next up: Emily Blunt (the scene-stealing assistant from The Devil Wears Prada) and Mary Lynn Rajskub (24‘s breakout star) are in town to promote Sunshine Cleaning, their off-beat comedy about a single mother who starts up a crime-scene cleaning service to earn some much-needed cash. The co-stars fill you in on how to keep warm at the fest, decomposing co-stars and the fluffy, yappy dogs they plan on buying each other. Check out the other celebs we’ve bumped into out there.

The Pats are acting smug. The Giants are being scoffed. And at least one pundit thinks that a New England loss would equal immortality. As the Superbowl gets ready to kick off, and Leatherheads prepares to drop, we wanted to remind you that Hollywood has applied itself to the gridiron a number of times. Here are five movies that put the ball between the goalposts. What are your fave football flicks?
Friday Night Lights (2004)
The Game: In small-town Odessa, Texas, high school football isn’t everything, it’s the only thing. Based on a true story, Billy Bob Thornton finds his mojo and leads the ’88 team to the state finals.
10-yard Penalty: Literary purists gripe that it can’t live up to the legendary book by H.G. Bissinger.
Final Score: This ain’t The Replacements. Wins big points for its gritty realism (a father beats his son when he fumbles the ball) and the way it scrutinizes the dead end community as keenly as the on-the-field action.
Any Given Sunday (1999)
The Game: Oliver Stone does the NFL, with thumping music, graphic violence (an eyeball pops loose after one tackle), spit-heavy speeches from coach Al Pacino, and QB Jamie Foxx’s first dramatic performance.
10-yard Penalty: Cameron Diaz as the president of an NFL franchise is about as believable as Cameron Diaz as a super-spy who works for a guy named Charlie.
Final Score: With its pounding tackles and snarling fans, Stone’s macho epic hits as hard and fast as a coked-up Lawrence Taylor.
Actress, addict, and leggings-lover Lindsay Lohan is desperate to write a memoir about growing up Hollywood,. because after three rehab stints and a lot of crappy extensions, she’s apparently in dire need of some cash. The story would supposedly be modeled after Drew Barrymore‘s early 90′s tell-all Little Girl Lost, and we are oh-so desperate to read it. Luckily we’ve crafted a little sneak peak to satiate our hunger for her not-yet written auto-trash-ography. Enjoy.
Wilmer Valderama was like, the best boyfriend ever. The relationship was kind of illegal because of our age difference, but my mom was totally cool with it. She was all, “It’ll help your career if you date the guy from That 70′s Show!” And I was all, “Okay cool, well I already dated Aaron Carter, and that didn’t get me a record deal.” It just proved that she’s a great manager, because she was totally right – I definitely landed my part in Herbie: Fully Loaded thanks to my relash with Wilmer. People love kid movies that star salacious teenagers! My mom also totally didn’t care that Wilms was like, 48-years old or whatever. And he was so fun to date; we used to like, laugh all the time about other people together. He was cool when I wanted to watch cartoons and I was cool with him doing his character from That 70s Show constantly. When we broke up I sought solace into the only pair of arms that could hold me: Nicole Richie. Well, actually, she couldn’t hold me, but it didn’t matter because she was so awesomely skinny – and so awesomely connected to the dark side. Not Scientology, I mean the OTHER dark side. Well, technically it’s white, so maybe it should be called the white and powdery side. I’m confused. Ugh, how much more of this thing do I have to write? 200 pages? That’s insane! You better read this whole thing, reader. I could totally find you and kick your ass – I’m a celebrity AND I’m from Long Island, jerks!!!!!!
Wait, am I writing a text message or my book? Oh. I probably shouldn’t be doing this on my Blackberry, huh. And now, on to the next chapter, How to Get Super Skinny After Being Hospitalized for an Asthma Attack.
