You'd never guess it by looking at her, but "Grey's Anatomy," "Knocked Up" star (and Maxim 100 member) Katherine Heigl is no fan of balls. In fact, she hates balls so much that she's created a website called IHateBalls.com, designed to encourage the spaying and neutering of pets. Bob Barker would approve. Heigl launched the website, along with a PSA video, in support of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, in an effort to potentially save the lives of millions of animals killed in pet shelters every years.
When I think about Seth Rogen, I don't automtically think "great dramatic thespian." Very funny man? Check. Conduit to express the agony of the human experience? Less so. So when I heard he was going to be in this movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt (a man of considerable talents, both dramatically and comedically) in which the protagonist (Levitt) gets cancer, I thought "huh...well that'll be something." Well the trailer for "50/50" is now online, and lo and behold, it seems Rogen has been given the role of "buddy who tries to help you through it by making you think of anything else.
Would a "Knocked Up" follow-up feel quite the same without the original's top-billed star? We shall see. Seth Rogen recently broke Movies.com the bad news that writer-director Judd Apatow's upcoming follow up to his 2007 hit romantic comedy won't include Rogen's central slacker character. The plan has apparently been that this one, previously tenatively titled "This Is Forty" and hitting theaters June 1, 2012, will spotlight Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's reprised couple.
Don't look now, but Megan Fox is becoming a comedic actress. The "Transformers" star has become the go-to girl for the role of "hot woman in romantic comedy," having already appeared in Simon Pegg's "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People." Fox also just wrapped filming on the comedy "Friends With Kids" which stars Jon Hamm and Kristin Wiig. Now, Hollywood Reporter is saying that Fox is in talks to appear in Judd Apatow's newest romantic comedy.
