- If the above image of Russell Brand as Trinculo in Julie Taymor's The Tempest doesn't have you kids craving some Shakespeare, how about the film's poster, which almost seems to need Nic Cage's face and/or Jerry Bruckheimer's name on it somewhere. Related: check out Brand and Tempest co-star Helen Mirren on the soapy set of the Arthur remake.

- I don't mind that Todd Phillips and Steve Conrad, who wrote and directed the very underrated comedy The Promotion, are reportedly developing a new biopic about John Belushi. I never saw Wired anyway. But I will be upset if they take any of The Hollywood Reporter's suggestions for stars, which include Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and Ethan Suplee (not to mention too-old actors Zach Galifianakis and Jack Black).
