Is Mila Kunis Going to Play Anastasia Steele?

Mila Kunis covers the November 2012 issue of Esquire.

-Uh oh. Mila Kunis has expressed interest in 50 Shades of Grey. Does this mean we can’t like her any more?

-In better book-to-movie casting news, Kate Winslet is reportedly up for a role in the film adaptation of the awesome YV novel Divergent.

– American Idol has more problems than Nicki sniping at Mariah. Nine former contestant are suing the show, claiming they were disqualified because of their race.

-I tend to watch The Office more out of a sense of obligation these days than actual admiration for the show, but the last 30 seconds of last night’s episode was a total heart-punch. Jim and Pam fighting and her being consoled by the previously unseen documentary crew made my stomach hurt. Watch the clip here.

-Well, this article about how Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski were rooting for each other during casting cheers me up a little.

-Everyone’s scrutinizing Taylor Swift’s breasts again…

Matt Damon took over Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, and he rocked it. Renaming it Jimmy Kimmel Sucks, he welcomed Ben Affleck, Nicole Kidman, Gary Oldman, Robin Williams, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Silverman, Andy Garcia and Demi Moore (whose face looked JACKED).

-In a new interview with Oprah, LL Cool J says he was brutally beaten by a man who lived with his mother.

Breaking Bad might get a companion after-show a la Talking Dead for its final season.

-These W videos of stars revealing their celebrity crushes are great. If you don’t have a lot of time, the best ones are Elle Fanning gushing about Ryan Gosling, Rebel Wilson crushing on Channing Tatum, and a scary skinny Matthew McConaughey waxing poetic about Susan Sarandon‘s unusually large pores. Oh, and if you want to see Kristen Stewart at her sickest looking, watch that one too. (It’s part of W‘s no-makeup issue.)

-Next week is the 30 Rock series finale. Sad, but this video of Tina Fey giving a tour of Liz Lemon‘s office is happy-making.

-Also, check out this supercut of  30 Rock’s tragically brilliant Dot Com.

Seann William Scott just broke off his engagement with his girlfriend.

-Speaking of nuptials, the dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the Parker premiere is actually a wedding dress. Blerg.

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s rep is denying rumours she’ll be slumming it on Downton Abbey.

-It’s been a good week to be a Jane Austen fan. Austenland, starring Keri Russell, is getting great reviews and just got bought by Sony at Sundance, while the late Nora Ephron wrote an adaptation of the awesome British mini-series Lost in Austen, which Sam Mendes is producing. I’m going to watch the crap out of all of it.

-Speaking of Sundance, Michael B Jordan had a very good festival. Vince FTW!

-The Upside Down trailer, starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess, is trippy as hell. In a good way.
