Jake Gyllenhaal in PRINCE OF PERSIA.

Hugh Jackman in something or other — it’s not WOLVERINE but we don’t really care WHAT it is.

R. Stevens catches up with GW and Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh.


  1. That Jackman shot is almost certainly from the Nicole Kidman Australian sort-of western with the awful trailer.

  2. Jon Stewart was dead on re the Bush beach volleyball tap: “Back of the hand, small of the back. Perhaps the finest decision of his entire presidency.”

  3. Yeah. Jake Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko.. as a Persian Prince. Cause heaven forbid we actually cast middle easterners as middle easterners heroes. (Almost said Arab, but Persians are not Arabs, remembering Persepolis.) Nope. Go to the casting line for the terrorist villain in the newest action flick. Well, we did have Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai and Tom Hanks in The Last N—a on Earth. So I shouldn’t be surprised.

    Though, yeah, he does look like Grunge.
