- Not sure if I can see him playing Ozzy Osbourne, but I'm a fiend for funny comb-overs, and this on-set shot of Colin Farrell already has me anxious to see him in Horrible Bosses. [via New York Post]

- Weird Al Yankovic's new feature film, which was supposed to be made for Cartoon Network, is now in turnaround and could be made for theatrical release instead. He says, "maybe it'll get produced at some point, maybe it won't," which is good or bad news depending on how your mind works. I still think he should just really make that biopic starring himself that he thought was a joke.

- Home Alone, Harry Potter and Percy Jackson director Chris Columbus explains why it's necessary to look at the family when casting a child actor. Hopefully this saves us from future clans as messed up as the Culkins, Lohans, Simpsons, etc.
- Since Americans only like soccer/football every four years, and only then because it's rather trendy, here's another movie nobody in the U.S. will care to see: The Big Dream of Edward Koch (German: Der Ganz Grosse Traum des Konrad Koch), which will star underrated Spanish-German actor Daniel Bruhl (Inglourious Basterds; Goodbye Lenin!; The Bourne Ultimatum; Merry Christmas) as the real-life English teacher who brought the sport to Germany way back in 1874. Maybe afterward we'll get a sequel that actually brings soccer to popularity in the States. Ole, Ole, Ole!

- It won't top last week's Liza Minnelli appearance for cinema fans, but HSN is partnering with Hollywood on movie tie-in specials, the first being a 72-hour devotion to the upcoming adaptation of Eat, Pray, Love. I don't think it's going to be so much studio-licensed merchandising -- no Julia Roberts dolls or Eat, Pray, Love-brand cereal -- as it will be centered around items that can easily be associated with the food and travel-based movie and the countries in which it's set. Though you may be able to pick up a t-shirt or other swag with the film's logo along with your prayer beads and pasta maker when the special airs on August 6th.

- Apparently the Facebook-based film The Social Network can't be advertised on Facebook. But can some random person start a Community Page promoting it?

- Come Spring 2011, you and I and anyone else curious about this year's Cannes-winner Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives can see the film courtesy of distributor Strand Releasing, which just picked up U.S rights to the film.

- I don't want to say too much about this and get myself in trouble with my girlfriend, feminists, gay rights activists or anyone else. But here's a (kinda lame, obvious and easy) lesbian porn parody of Twilight (NSFW):
