It's all about Batman.

Well not allll about Batman, but of course I have to post some Dark Knight ish since it comes out in 3 days!!!! Squeeeeeeeee. (Even though I'm not seeing it until Sunday because of BlogHer but man it will be worth it since Matt and I are seeing it here, woot). Anyhoo, here's the scoop...
  • Christian Bale was on the Today Show yesterday promoting the movie and talking about Heath and seriously I just want to hug him. He just seems so nice and sincere and quiet and ah, love.

    And then on top of it, last night was the Dark Knight premiere in NYC, color me jealous. The premiere definitely brought out some interesting folks (Lauren Conrad, Karina Smirnoff, Danny Devito?? Ummm okay) as well as the actual stars of the film:

    seriously cannot wait for this movie, eeeeee.

  • In other news in no way related to the Dark Knight.....Two of my favorite Thursday night TV shows could have some major changes soon (and not for the best, gah). Apparently William Peterson aka Gil Grissom aka the Man of CSI: is leaving the show mid-season. But not for good? The article says he'll come back whenever CBS needs him (so luckily they won't be killing him) and he'll still be executive producing so I guess it's not too too bad. And in Grey's news, apparently Katherine Heigl may be getting the boot? And one serious boot, Izzy may be killed off...wow. I knew Katherine was considering leaving the show to pursue movies more, but come on...don't leave, please?

  • In musical wedding news, Taboo from Black Eyed Peas got married this weekend. Now why would I mention this? I don't really care about him of BEP all that much to really share that. But um, they got married in Pasadena! Holla hometown! :) And the church they got married at, yeah I totally know where it is. Always nice to hear of celebs having low keyish weddings.

  • In other randomness... Josh Hartnett, remember him? Of course you do, who am I kidding? But do you remember him with flowy longish brownish blondish lightish hair and facial hair? Cause I sure don't.

    I remember him like this:

    Yeah I like the old Josh better.

  • In comedic and this-would-so-happen-to-me news, Miss USA took a tumble (again!) at this year's Miss Universe pageant. I mean two years in a row? That has to be a record or something. Or maybe she was dared to trip? Who knows, but it's still pretty funny.

  • And what's a Hollywood post without some cute babies? Salma Hayek took little Valentina out for a stroll yesterday and seriously, what a cutie?!

  • And ummmm of course I have to share the latest Garner-Affleck family photos because seriously, they make me swoon. And there are rumors swirling that Jen may be pregnant with baby #2?! But I'm not celebrating anything yet until a statement has been shared by Jen herself. But anyhoo, how cute are they?! Love.

Well that's all I got today. Luckily nothing too wild and crazy in Hollywood unless I missed something, let me know if I did.

And in news that will be considered Hollywood when I get famous...today's my mom's birthday! Woot woot, happiest of happy birthdays mom. Hope the boys (aka my annoying younger brothers) give you a day off :)

happy tuesday!

Jenn said...

I like old Josh better, too.

L Sass said...

I got my tickets this morning for The Dark Knight and I'm so so so so so excited! Is it Friday yet?

Every time I see The Dark Knight trailer (as I did last weekend when I saw Hancock) I get totally pumped for the movie. Although I watched the new E! True Hollywood Story of Heath Ledger and it was depressing. :(

rialeilani said...

i like the old josh better too, but that smirk on the new josh is pretty hot ;)

B2G said...

Um, I was obsessed with the old Josh. I don't like this new artsy-fartsy one so much.

Lauren said...

I'm so excited about Dark Knight! I'm going Thurs at midnight--my roommate already has our tickets. Christian Bale DOES make a great Batman, so i'm thrilled to see him do it up right again.

Regarding Izzie, I don't think they'll kill her off, but I think they'll probably get rid of her. She's been discussing leaving the show for a bit and after her harsh words about the script, go ahead. I love her character and I really like Heigl as an actress--a lot!, but she really needs to tone her ego down a bit.

Traci Anne said...

I dunno, I've never liked Izzie or Katherine Heigl, so no love lost there :) I do think Jen Garner's pregnant - either that or it's a really unflattering top!

Angela said...

Danny DeVito was the Penguin in the first Batman movie, from like 1989, with Michael Keaton. That's why he was there most likely.

And Josh Hartnett? He looks so much older now! WOW!

California Girl said...

Batman's going to be great. I can't wait to see Heath Ledger in it. I'm sure there will be chills.

Valentina is to die for cute. Like a little button!

And I this Mrs. Affleck is definitely pregnant. Would be so awesome for little Vi!

thatShortChick said...

little miss salma is gorgeous! but, i'm waiting for gwen stefani to pop out another sure-to-be cutie.

Princess Pointful said...

I want to do a lot more than hug Christian Bale. Just sayin'.

Dana said...

i can't wait!!! TDK here i come!!

Shelley said...

Josh has always been "artsy-fartsy." I'm glad he's moved away from the teen heart throb roll and is doing movies that he's more interested in.

I'm not digging the facial hair that much, either. And I'm partial to his past looks (That picture you found I remember from my Teen People magazine back in the day. Rawr.) But then again... he looks older and more sophisticated now.

Course, I am biased when it comes to Josh Hartnett. He is, after all, from Minnesota. :-)

I saw The PRestige this past weekend to rile me up for my main man in Batman.

I'm talking about Michael Caine.

Auburn Kat said...

It's going to be weird watching that movie with Heath in it!

Oh and I would take Josh either way!

Adele said...

aaa! im sooo excited for this film aswell!! but it doesn't come out till the 24th here :( and im going on the holiday on the 27th! so that leaves me like... 3 days to see it and im stressing because i know it will be sold out! xx

Andrea said...

OMG when I heard that Jen may be preggo for the 2nd time, I immediately thought of you :D Now B will never make your cute child list ;-) JK! Hope it works out for you... I mean Jen being preggo and all!

Alexa said...

what a beautiful family you have!

also, as much as i love christian bale - i'm also pumped to see aaron eckhart. he's pretty damn smokin' too.

wanna know me said...

aww i heart taboo! I mean, he's a great artist, but most of all, he's FILIPINO! and looks like he got married to a filipina too! so cute!

kay* said...

i am so sad William Peterson is leaving CSI - he is one of my older men crushes. love intelligence in a man - so sexy.

Anonymous said...

jen totally looks preggo! i love your hollywood posts =)

Playful Professional said...

I went Thursday at midnight. Amazing. Did you get to see it??

Amanda. said...

That cast picture is great...
only thing missing is Heath.
Pshh. I'm still saddened
by that whole thing. Maggie
looks GREAT! Love her.

I've heard Katherine is
getting killed off Greys.
I wonder how that'll gooo...

While I do prefer Josh with
shorter hair...Mr. Hartnett's
long hair isn't completely
awful. I still think he
has such a cute face!

Ben and Jen...oh how I
adore theee. And I would
just be SO thrilled if
she was expecting another
little cherub face!

And what a darling family
