After weeks of back and forth, will he or won't he, Marvel finally announced Robert Downey Jr.'s next appearance as Tony Stark / Iron Man, playing counterpoint to Chris Evans' Steve Roger in the NSA-fueled Captain America 3.
But the most interesting part of the announcement is this behind-the-scenes blurb from Variety:
Originally, Marvel wanted to hire Downey for a small role, which would have required just three weeks of work. But Downey wanted Stark to have a more substantial role in the film's plot, which would give him more screen time and naturally a bigger payday. This angered Marvel Entertainment chief Ike Perlmutter, who ordered the screenwriters to write Iron Man out of the script entirely, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
Robert Downey Jr. is Tony Stark. Tony Stark, likewise, is Robert Downey Jr. (with a dash of Elon Musk). There's no point arguing otherwise; so much of Stark the character feels like an extension of Downey's own. Marvel Studios has merged the two personalities into one inextricably linked entity, which is why Marvel is more likely to write the character out completely rather than recasting.
But while Robert Downey Jr. may always be Tony Stark, he won't always be Iron Man. And now that all of Marvel's movies are arguably one expansive story, the future of Iron Man is decidedly less certain — and at the same time, way more interesting.
Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man has been the catalyst for all of Marvel's film success. But the story has grown beyond him. It's a long-term concern but one Marvel Studios is no doubt contemplating — after all, it claims to be planning films through 2028.
Come to think of it, what's Don Cheadle up to for the next 14 years?

When President Obama finished “evolving” and announced, in May 2012, that he thought “same-sex couples should be able to get married,” he went farther than any previous president though not quite so far as many activists would have liked. In his interview with Robin Roberts, he said he thought the issue would, and should be, “worked out at the local level,” thus implicitly denying that marriage was a constitutionally protected right.
It would appear he has evolved again. In the Oct. 27 issue of The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin reveals that the president has dropped his federalist stance.
“Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all fifty states,” the president told Mr. Toobin.

These last two years before the next election are going to be nuts.
Laurie Holden, who played Andrea in The Walking Dead, doesn't just pretend to be a badass. She's the real deal in her role as a volunteer for Operation Underground Railroad, a human rights organization that targets sex traffickers. Recently she was part of a raid in Colombia involving 55 sex slaves.
This week's episode of Nightline follows the sting and shows Holden in all her real-life glory. The organization worked with Colombian authorities to stage a bachelor party with underage sex workers. When the traffickers agree on camera to to pimp out the underage girls and the money is exchanged, the cops move in to make the arrests.
During the ordeal Holden works with social workers to comfort the girls, who fear they're the ones who will be in trouble and that they won't be paid. Holden is clearly heartbroken when interviewed after the fact. But she should also be extremely proud of her work.

Last night, renowned Aussie rapper Matt Colwell, aka 360, appeared for the first time on ABC's weekly panel program Q&A. The acclaimed rhymesmith made his debut alongside 'rock-star physicist' Brian Cox (who was a member of '90s pop-house act D:ream), actress Miranda Tapsell (The Sapphires), conductor and educator Richard Gill, and mathematician Nalini Joshi for a broad range of questions and answers that covered everything from time travel to the education curriculum, and 360 represented well with his contributions to the robust debate, enlightening viewers with far more than the simple confirmation that he scrubs up well in a suit...
he thinks the australian flag is a racist icon
May as well start with the big one — far and away the most controversial statement we heard from 360 last night was his admission that he equates the Australian flag with racism.
"“There are so many racist bigots in this country, and they’re everywhere," 360 began, responding to an audience member's question about whether it is time for Australia to demonstrate that it is not an inherently racist place. "I was talking to someone earlier about this, but the Australian flag, to me, has now become… I identify that with racism."
When host Tony Jones pressed him to elaborate, noting the contentious nature of the statement, 360 expanded:
"Like, on Australia Day, you see a bunch of dudes walking around with their tops off, and they’re getting on the drink and all that. They’ve got an Australian flag around their neck… I’ve seen it so many times, like, I’ve been in a taxi where we’ve pulled up because these dickheads have been walking across the road, and they just start yelling at the taxi driver, like, ‘Get out of the country! This is not your country!’, you know what I mean? And they’re wearing Australian flags! I’ve seen it so much, like, growing up, still today… it’s pathetic.”
hip-hop has a homophobia problem
As the topic of racism continued to dominate the panel, 360 made a brief comment introducing the topic of sexuality to the mix, on which Jones picked up and pressed for elaboration, pointing to the existing culture of homophobia in hip-hop and even citing a 360 lyric: "If the devil wears Prada, then the devil must be a f**got".
“I used to use homophobic slurs all the time, in battle rap, every day talking to my mates, and stuff like that," 360 explained. "And I was young; I was very ignorant. And then I got interviewed by a gay man, and he said to me, ‘Do you understand your power with kids and how much influence you have on these kids? And you’re saying a word like "f**got", and it teaches them that’s OK.'
"And, ever since then, that changed me. I think the only way you can beat ignorance is with education. And ever since then, I’ve realised the position that I was in — I was a role model for young kids, so I wanna be a positive one, you know? I don’t want to be a negative one. So that just changed everything for me after that. I realised I was ignorant; I realised that was stupid, but I grew up. I moved on."

South African athlete Oscar Pistorius has been given five years in jail for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Judge Thokozile Masipa also gave Pistorius a three-year suspended sentence for a firearms charge.
The parents of Reeva Steenkamp told the BBC they were happy with the sentence and relieved the case was over. The defence said it expected Pistorius to serve about 10 months in prison.
Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide but cleared of murder.
Prosecutors had called for a minimum 10-year term, and the defence had argued for community service and house arrest.

I'd settle for 10 years, but at least he's getting jail time? oop I skipped the 10 months part, that's insane. For murdering a person!

Has this pollster’s luck finally run out?
"Prophets" -- Finch is suspicious when a gifted political pollster's number comes up at the same time that his typically ironclad predictions go wrong, and believes that the two events are linked. Meanwhile, Reese is sidelined by a direct order from Captain Moreno, on Person of Interest, Tuesday, Oct. 21 (10:01-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Jason Ritter guest stars as pollster Simon Lee. Also guest starring is Cara Buono(and it seems that she might finally get to meet Root).

One reason the show sparks passionate interest is because of the steamy sex scenes between Olivia Pope and the married president of the United States (Tony Goldwyn). "They're hard to do. Sex scenes are always awkward," Washington says. "You're doing things that you're supposed to do with only certain people in your life. Because this is not your real partner in life, doing that is awkward. And then doing it in a room full of people is awkward."
Even discussing Goldwyn's obvious sex appeal is a minefield, Washington says. "Particularly with a show like ours, where people are so invested in the chemistry, you just learn to be careful, because people's real relationships in life are important. I so respect and admire his wife and him and their family, and he feels the same way about mine. And so you learn to be careful about how you say things."
In Washington's first major film, Save the Last Dance, she played a teen mother, and she knew that her first task was "to make sure the character wasn't a stereotype, but that she felt like a real person.... Especially for me, as a woman and as a person of color, I play these roles where many people in society may never think about that person." She sought out variety and range in her career. "I knew that there were going to be special challenges to being a woman of color as an actor." Of course, she says, "we have a different world now. But still"—a wry smile—"it's not as though we all live in a wonderland of inclusivity."
She looks super beautiful. <3
Matthew McConaughey covers GQ magazine’s November 2014 issue.
Here’s what the 44-year-old Interstellar actor had to share with the mag:
On the Washington Redskins name (and gun control?):“Man, it's twofold. What interests me is how quickly it got pushed into the social consciousness. We were all fine with it since the 1930s, and all of a sudden we go, "No, gotta change it"? It seems like when the first levee breaks, everybody gets on board. I know a lot of Native Americans don't have a problem with it, but they're not going to say, "No, we really want the name." That's not how they're going to use their pulpit. It's like my feeling about gun control: "I get it. You have the right to have guns. But look, let's forget that right. Let's forget the pleasure you get safely on your range, because it's in the wrong hands in other places . . . It's just... I love the emblem. I dig it. It gives me a little fire and some oomph. But now that it's in the court of public opinion, it's going to change. I wish it wouldn't, but it will.”
On marrying his longtime love Camilla Alves:“I had to get to the point where I saw it as more than just the thing to do. I wanted to really want to. You know, I didn’t want it to be a destination; the fun is that we’re on the adventure together. And look, some of it had to do with her putting it on me. It took her going, ‘C’mon, Big Boy, Mr. Easygoing-We’ll- Get-to-It-When-We-Get-to-It. Either sh*t or get off the pot.’”
On whether he’s still friends with Lance Armstrong:“I like people who are great at what they do. At that time, we were two single men who were doing good in their careers and came from different places. To put my own emotions in front of this and go ‘You didn’t tell me the truth’ would be arrogant. And you know what? This is a friend. Who I know to be a good man. If there was an apology, it was said and I heard it.”
ETA: I included the full quote, which is worse.
Luke Hemsworth leads the way after leaving Urth Caffe with his younger brother Chris Hemsworth on Sunday (October 19) in Santa Monica, Calif.
The super hunky brothers were joined by a group of friends for their weekend lunch outing.
Selena Gomez walks just steps ahead Orlando Bloom as they both depart from LAX Airport on Monday (October 20) in Los Angeles.
The 22-year-old entertainer looked like she was trying to hide her smile as she and friend Alfredo Flores walked briskly ahead, while the 37-year-old actor wore a hat and tried to keep incognito as he brought up the rear.
Orlando and Selena were famously spotted hanging out together earlier this year at Chelsea Handler‘s Uganda Be Kidding Me Live Show.
Over the summer, Orlando punched Selena’s on again/off again boyfriend Justin Bieber – and the whole thing was caught on video.
Look at your life choices Orlando.
So not ready for this scene yet...and what will come right after it.
At an NYC screening of WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD, Shailene Woodley was asked if she felt awkward filming sex scenes, with one scene involving the much older Thomas Jane.
"[It's] crazy. And sort of wrong. But I felt great doing it. I was not fully robed. And our bodies had no makeup. Who needs makeup? I'm only 22. My boobs are great. They don't need any help. My parents saw the film. I thought it might be awkward, but they both loved it."
And as expected, she continued to champion the sisterhood:
"Women should be there for other women. It's such cruelty and competition out there. Women must help other women. Not say those ugly things about the others just out of their insecurity. I don't believe in that."
WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD hits theatres Oct. 24.

I was surprised at how polarizing the film (particularly its ending) was when it premiered at Sundance. I personally loved it.

She's well known for transforming her appearance for movie roles.
But off-screen Renee Zellweger, 45, displayed an astonishingly different look at ELLE's 21st annual Women In Hollywood Awards at the Four Seasons Hotel in California on Monday.
The Jerry Maguire actress looked almost unrecognisable with her super line-free forehead, altered brow and suspiciously puffy face, although she has never admitted to getting surgery.
