Jamie Dornan was on a golf course when this photo was taken so it’s most likely a golf ball in his pocket, but the internet lost its poo anyway.

Johnny Depp once passed on Face/Off when he found out it wasn’t a hockey movie.

-This is a good article on how “It gets good after 6 episodes!” is becoming increasingly untenable in Peak TV. There’s no longer time for “hope watching” until things get better.

-Speaking of preview screenings, I saw The Amazing Spider-Man last night. I liked Andrew Garfield just fine in The Social Network and Never Let Me Go, but lemme tell you, halfway through this film, you can actually feel yourself falling for this guy. He’s vulnerable yet tough (even before the spider bite), and oh so awkward. There’s a scene between him and Emma Stone where they’re adorably, clumsily planning a date, and I think the whole theatre was cringing/watching it through their fingers. Expect a lot of dumb plays on the word ‘amazing’ in the reviews, but it really did win me over. Meanwhile, here’s some goofy pics of Andrew playing basketball in NYC, and here is video of him and Emma answering fan questions.

Ke$ha continues to live up to our very, very low expectations by getting the words “Suck It” tattooed on her inner lip.
