I just read that Adele is releasing new single at the end of 2012 and I think that was worth mentioning at the very beginning. She did however say, that we shouldn't expect a new album to accompany the new single. But I'm not complaining. Now some quotes again, few are a bit olde. Try to say the first one really fast:

"-Actually I was going to stay in my office and work on my law blog.
-Of course... the "Bob Loblaw Law Blog". Wow sir, you are a mouthful!
-Bob and Tobias
Scot Baio and David Cross on Arrested Development

 "Our bodies can't do what they used to be able to do. Yours can't play hockey with twenty-year-olds, mine can't laugh really hard without peeing"
Christina Applegate on Up All Night

"-Slutty Brownies are these amazing things made of cookie dough, Oreos and brownie dough.
-Why are they called slutty?
-I guess because a lot go into them? I don't know.
Jessica Simpson and Jay Leno on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Though the official list of movies shown at Cannes isn't released until April 19th, theWrap took some time to make predictions on what movies will be a part of the prestigious ceremony. Even if they aren't completely right, its still a pretty good list on what international films to look out for. And also on the list: Holly Motors. A low-budget film about woman moonlighting as a beggar and a murderer. The movie stars Eva Mendez and Kylie Minogue among others.

Though I will probably always see Jenna Fischer as Pam from The Office, her new movie certainly seems very different. She plays a woman trying to find her calling on life and ends up falling in love with a street performer. Directed by her husband Lee Kirk, The Giant Mechanical Man seems like an adorable love story.

 Another movie released its trailer too, though this is way more mainstream. The remake of 1990 sci-fi movie Total Recall hits the theaters this summer, and seems like worth checking out. The movie is about a man whose memory has been tempered with and finds some new sides of himself. Colin Farrel takes on the lead role trying to prove that he still has what it takes to draw in the green on box office. Kate Beckinsale and  Jessica Biel provide the beauty.

Some weeks ago I talked about the upcoming movie adaption of the musical Les Miserables. The production is well on its way and Hugh Jackman posted new photo from the set of him in his costume. Jackman plays Jean Valjean, an convict escaping his parole and  trying to put his life together during the French revolution.

When the news broke on April 1st, it was no surprise that people thought it was April Fools joke, since it certainly sounded like that. Aston Kutcher playing Steve Jobs, whaaat? But this has been confirmed. Kutcher isn't really known for his dramatic roles, but he certainly looks like Jobs when he was younger. He will either do a great job, or it will be a huge failure.

I don't know if its the April Fools or what, but a lot has been going on in the world of comedy. Last week on Conan, Will Farrel made a guest appearance as Ron Burgundy from Anchorman, revealing that there is a sequel coming up. I've never actually seen this financially successful comedy, but maybe I now have to see it, at least his appearance made me laugh.

Few other sequels caught my eye, and I honestly thought I was being fooled. First, Farrelly brothers told they are working on the sequel for Dumb and Dumber, with both Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels signed up to reprise their roles. Then I found this other news, which seemed totally absurd. Do you remember that mediocre/really bad comedy with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito called Twins? Well now they are working on a sequel called, surprise surprise, Triplets. And what makes it so bad, is that Eddie Murphy is going the be the third, genetically engineered sibling. I mean really?

In some other comedy film news, Amanda Peet has been cast in Identity Theft, already starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman. The name already tells the basic synopsis of  the film, but it might surprise you that it is McCarthy's character that steals Bateman's identity. Peet will most likely play his romantic interest. Peet is currently starring on Bent, a new comedy series, which has gotten great reviews but hasn't got the viewers since it airs against The American Idol. I truly hope they'll move its spot, because I'd hate to see it cancelled pre-maturely.

Family Guy creator and voice actor Seth MacFarlane is branching out to movie business. He just released trailer to his new movie Ted, starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis (his Family Guy co-star), while MacFarlane provides voice to Ted, and CGI-animated bear living with Wahlberg. Trailer seems funny at least, gotta love Ted as a cashier: 

A lot going on in TV comedies  too. Lorne Michaels, the legendary producer at NBC has been looking for new comediennes for SNL, and Kate McKinnon will be premiering in next new episode, in which case it would be on next Saturday when Sofia Vergara is hosting. Will be fun to see what they come up with, I haven't seen McKinnon in any other previous role before, but I trust Lorne.

That's not the only thing happening at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, home to 30 Rock too, duh! Elizabeth Banks is coming down from her Hunger Games buzz by returning to TV, reprising her role as Avery Jessup, who in the current storyline, is still being held captive at North Korea. She is said to appear sometime during May, can't wait!

Though Glee still hasn't returned from its break, they certainly know how to keep us hooked. First Whoopi Goldberg was announced to join the cast as a professor at NYADA, the art school where Rachel and Kurt are applying. She is set to star in at least 3 episodes. Then Lindsey Lohan was added to the mix, she would play herself on the show, as a judge on Show Choir Nationals. Maybe this is Glee's way of apologizing for making fun at her when Gwyneth Paltrow was guest-starring.

Happy Endings is also teasing us with teasers of future episodes. This time they released first four minutes of the season finale. See the clip here and read spoilers from the episode. One word: MANDONNA

And of course the most talked about premiere of the week. Game Of Thrones season 2 premiered Sunday, and was everything what I was expecting: new characters, plots, killing, nudity and pure awesomeness! I found this great photo gallery from EW, which sheds light on the GOT actors off-camera persona. Take a look! Here is a teaser video of upcoming events, this is almost too exciting to share:

Some new post coming this weekend if I found inspiration, but weekly post next Tuesday at least.
