Aaron Sorkin does.
Cate Blanchett is attached to star in an authorized biopic of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball that Sorkin is set to write. I know, really chill, low-stakes movie. NOT.
The film will tackle Ball’s 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz, their show and kids, and her second marriage to Gary Morton. Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. will produce, so it might be a real circus of kids and feelings and you know, all THAT kind of thing.
Blanchett won the first of two Academy Awards for playing another Hollywood icon, Katharine Hepburn, in Martin Scorsese‘s “The Aviator,” so she’s no stranger to taking on large roles with lots of history. What do you think she’ll do with the role?
Also, do you think someone else would have been a better fit?

Quentin Tarantino is a HUGE fan of Jennifer Lawrence, but decided NOT to cast her in his new movie. So what’s the deal?
A couple months ago J.Law was in contention for a phenomenal role as an insane criminal en route to the gallows in Tarantino’s new western The Hateful Eight. But, she didn’t snag the role. QT said:
“When I was looking for Daisy, I could have seen Jennifer Lawrence doing a good job with the role. I’m a very big fan of hers. I think she could end up being another little Bette Davis if she keeps on going the way she’s going. I think her work with David O. Russell is very reminiscent of William Wyler and Bette Davis’s.”
That being said…
“Daisy should be a little older. She should fit in with the guys. Jennifer Jason Leigh came in and was really good. She went for a couple of things that other people just kind of playacted. She had to act like she got shot, and she just screamed bloody murder. I kept remembering Jennifer’s bloodcurdling scream. If it had happened in a house, somebody would have called the cops.”
So who snagged it? Amber Tamblyn originated the role of Daisy Domergue during the staged live reading, but it went to Single White Female star Jennifer Jason Leigh, who is gonna KILL IT.
What do you think of JLaw being passed over?

Britney Spears has some really important issues to discuss with you. World peace? Civil rights? HELL NO. She wants to talk Taylor Swift and being a movie star, DUH.
“I love Taylor Swift,” the “I’m a Slave 4 U” pop star said during the Teen Choice Awards. “I think she’s adorable. I love her music. Her music makes me so happy. She’s very level-headed. She’s a very, very smart girl, very wise.”
But in more Britney-centric news, Brit-Brit will be appearing on Jane the Virgin, and she’s a big fan of the CW show.
“I think the writing is so simple and so endearing and it’s funny!” Spears said. “I started watching the show before it got really big and I was telling everyone about it. They were all like, ‘What are you talking about?’ and then it got really big.”
Then she went on to talk about the Greek financial crisis.
“I used to watch a lot of TV shows,” Spears said. “I watched Once Upon a Time and Revenge and Californication…I haven’t watched a lot of TV shows lately.”
Oops, I mean she wanted to talk about TV more. In any case, Brit still has her ambitions, and nobody can take them away from her.
Are you going to watch Jane the Virgin with Miz SPEARZZZ?

Here’s some January Jones news you won’t BELIEVE (You will. You will believe it).
The actress was apparently a huge downer at a Playboy and “Self/less” party at Comic-Con, showing up to the Parq Restaurant & Nightclub with friends appearing “absolutely miserable,” according to Page Six. Oh, and the fun continued…
A page six insider reports that “she was in a really foul mood and sat by herself, chain-smoking an e-cigarette while her friends danced. She was completely disinterested, and no one knew why she was there.”
Nice, Jan. As if being a party pooper isn’t enough, you had to go and smoke an e-cigarette like a total dickwad. Granted, the guest list wasn’t super A list: Michael B. Jordan, Kendra Wilkinson and Hannibal Buress were like, the most famous people there, but still, it’s a PARTY.
Man, I love January’s work, but when she’s off-camera, I immediately dislike her. How do you feel about January Jones?
