-The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer has been released and it’s … not bad. Like, surprisingly not bad. I was expecting more cheese, but they’re playing it so straight it might actually work (they even showed considerable restraint by not ending it with “coming soon”). Is it possible Sam Taylor-Johnson managed to turn that terribly, terribly written book into a watchable move? My only concern: they tease us before showing Jamie Dornan‘s face and when they finally do, in that first scene he looks a little…doughy. Which is crazy because he was unbelievably hot it The Fall. Did his beard hold the key to all his sexiness? Here’s more proof.
-Meanwhile, Jamie’s costar Dakota Johnson was spotted with her possible new boyfriend Matthew Hitt, the lead vocalist of the band Drowners.
–Mireille Enos had a baby boy and called him Larkin Zouey Ruck. Also, did anyone else know she was married to Alan Ruck?! This makes me weirdly happy.
-With all of the TIFF announcements, I somehow missed the fact that Anna Kendrick will be here for not one, but two movies: a musical romance called The Last Five Years, and a drama called Cake costarring Jennifer Aniston. Squee!
-Are Jon Snow and Ygritte dating IRL?
–Audra McDonald, Jimmy Fallon and Josh Charles sang Yahoo! Answers last night. Who knew Will Gardiner had those pipes?
–Shia LaBeouf showed up in court today to face his disorderly conduct charges at that Cabaret performance last month. Not surprisingly, there’s a plea deal in the works.
-Yet another reason not to watch New Girl anymore: Jessica Biel just joined the cast.
–Lupita Nyong’o’s French Elle cover is tres jolie.
-Maybe it’s just because my current bout of insomnia has led me to a Gossip Girl rewatch this week, but Penn Badgley’s tweet to Leighton Meester got me all mushy.
–Ricky Gervais says he discovered “big, sweaty slob” Louis C.K., who never thanked him.
-The Hollywood Reporter got Tatiana Maslany to do some Shaun of the Dead cosplay, killing fanboys everywhere.
-I want Taylor Swift’s booties.
-The Washington Post imagined what it’d be like if famous actors created lifestyle websites, and it’s hilarious.
-Meanwhile, Blake Lively might have revealed a split-second glimpse of her wedding dress in Preserve’s welcome video.
–Jake Gyllenhaal is on the prowl in the first trailer for Nightcrawler.
