Alec Baldwin Is Killing His Next Movie Role (Sort Of).


The director of photography in an Alec Baldwin movie was killed and the film’s director was injured on October 21st when the actor fired a prop firearm on the set of a movie in New Mexico.  Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed and Joel Souza, 48, was injured around 1:50 p.m. on the set of “Rust,” a Western being filmed in Santa Fe County, Juan Rios, a spokesman for the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, said. The circumstances of the shooting are under investigation.  Mr. Rios said the shooting at Bonanza Creek Ranch happened in the middle of a scene that was either being rehearsed or filmed. He said the Sheriff’s Office was interviewing people on the set to determine how the two had been shot.  This seems scarily similar to the incident that resulted in the death of Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee’s son) during the filming of the movie ‘The Crow’.  

“We’re trying to determine right now how and what type of projectile was used in the firearm,” he said.  Mr. Rios said on Thursday night that the Sheriff’s Office had not filed charges against anyone in connection with the shooting.  Ms. Hutchins was flown to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she later died, Mr. Rios said. Mr. Souza was taken to CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe. Mr. Souza’s condition was not immediately available.  The film’s producers and a representative for Mr. Baldwin, 63, did not immediately respond to emails or phone calls on Thursday night.  On Thursday morning, Mr. Baldwin posted a photo on Instagram in his film costume, which included what appeared to be a prosthetic wound on his torso.  We know that he didn’t know… but a tad bit in bad taste though.  

Jon Bernthal Gets Punished On Hot Ones.


Since its debut, Hot Ones has been an amazing look at celebs semi outside of their comfort zones, and answer questions while having their tastebuds burnt out. But seeing people playing against character is always quite refreshing. From seeing Kevin Hart loose control of his mouth to the point that he was almost drunk, to finding out that Stone Cold Steve Austin is actually quite a open and chatty kinda dude, many of the episodes show people in a light they are not normally under. Jon Bernthal is most known for playing Shane in ‘The Walking Dead’, or The Punisher on Netflix, but seeing him out of character, he’s quite an entertaining guy as it. Check out his interview with Hot Wings below.

In 2011, Samuel L. Jackson was named the highest gross actor of all time. While we were a bit taken back at first, when you really think about, he’s been in so many films that it was bound to happen. Now we get to see what the world of Disney would be like if Samuel Jackson played the main character in some of our favorite films. This hilarious movie poster series was written by Alex J. Mann and designed by Jennifer Sanders.

Blending Iconic Faces From The Past And Present

Then and Now is a powerful collection of mash-ups by photographer and graphic designer Marc Ghali. In the series, the Canada-based photographer creatively blends old black and white photographs with sections of colorful, modern images. He perfectly arranges the new and old fragments so that, upon quick glance, viewers might believe they are looking at just one subject. However, each compilation features two faces representing the past and the present.

The subjects are often related in regards to professions, ranging from singers and actors to historical leaders. Some of the mash-ups include Rihanna and Diana Ross, Brad Pitt and James Dean, and two British princesses, Kate and Diana. It appears that Ghali really has an eye for matching faces as the many similarities are quite striking. The artist says, “I wanted to do something fun creatively. I was inspired by a series [by George Chamoun] called Iconatomy, and wanted to draw on parallels between influential figures pasts and present in an interpretative way.” It’s certainly fascinating to see how the world really hasn’t changed much across so many decades of time.

As hard as my team and I work on scouring the interwebs for new source material for this blog, I’ll be the first to admit that we can’t catch EVERYTHING.  Sometimes there are articles, skits, photos, and happenings that simple elude our eyes and ears, but luckily I have other sources that help out without knowing.  I came onto Facebook after spinning a beach party on Cinco De Mayo, and saw a post from my boy Rob Scott about President Obama’s original speech after catching Osama Bin Laden.  Click the pic to watch this hilarious video, and shout outs again to Rob Scott for putting this video on my radar
