    Former Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr, was found dead on Tuesday.  Starr who suffered a long battle with heroin addiction was 44.

    According to The Guardian Starr’s body was discovered at a private residence in Salt Lake City.  The cause of death is yet unknown

    “There is nothing to indicate that this was foul play by another individual,” said authorities.

    Starr was replaced by Black Sabbath bassist Mike Inez after he broke off from Alice in Chains midtour shortly after the band’s 1992 breakthrough album, “Dirt.” Starr admitted later that the split was due to his growing drug addiction.

    Starr was arrested three weeks ago on in Salt Lake City on suspicion of felony possession of a controlled substance and was held on $20,000 bail.

    Starr’s is the 2nd tragedy of the ill fated group.  In April 2002, Alice in Chains vocalist Layne Staley, died of a heroine overdose at his home in Seattle.

    Batman ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Casting Shortlist: Knightley, Hathaway, Biel?

    Thursday, January 13th, 2011

    The cast for Batman: The Dark Knight Rises’ cast, seems to be still up in the air. Conflicting reports emerged on Tuesday over which women have been asked to audition for the roles of anti-hero, love interest and reporter so although there is no definite information this is what is being bandied around by those in the know.

    First, Collider.com reported that a source told them that Eva Green and Naomi Watts had been cast in the Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film, potentially as the anti-hero/love Talia al Ghul and love interest Vicki Vale, respectively.

    Shortly after, The Hollywood Reporter came out with its own version of things, casting a wider net and asserting that the film was still holding auditions for the parts. They had Keira Knightley, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Kate Mara and Charlotte Riley as scheduled to try out, along with Gemme Arteton, though she may have scheduling conflicts given her new role in an upcoming Snow White adaptation.

    Nolan co-wrote the script and will direct and thankfully Christian Bale will return for his third adventure as Batman.

    Aaron Eckhart, who played Two Face in the previous film, said he hasn’t been asked to work on a third, while Nolan shot down the rumor of Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing The Riddler, as well as the possibility of Mr. Freeze (once played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) returning to the series.

    For a reminder of what this movie will have to live up to check this out below:

    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Starlet’s Sexy Transformation

    Thursday, January 13th, 2011

    Here’s a glimpse of Rooney Mara’s ultra-sexy new image for her upcoming, blockbuster role in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”

    Mara, is going for the “goth Pippi Longstocking,” look the flick’s director, David Fincher, told W magazine, in editions that will hit newsstands Jan. 25.

    Fincher, who accompanied Mara on this photo shoot in Stockholm helped craft the look that will be similar to how she’ll appear in the much-anticipated flick.

    Jean-Baptiste Mondino for W Magazine

    “Dragon” is expected to debut on US movie screens in December.

    Mara, 25, who up until she took the part didn’t even have pierced ears said her off-screen appearance is nothing close to the tattooed and pierced look of “Dragon’s” hacker, Lisbeth Salander, who teams up with a well-known journalist to unravel a mysterious disappearance. “They put four holes in each ear, and, weirdly, that hurt the most.”

    Mara’s screen test included a disturbing scene in which the character seeks revenge on her rapist.  “We had five of six girls audition with the . . . scene,” Fincher said. “That’s Salander’s big scene and we had to see if they could do it.”

    Mara said she didn’t flinch, and appreciated the chance to impress.

    There were a few shocked faces when Fincher picked Mara, “The studio pressures you to pick a name,” he said. “All walks of life want the path of least resistance.”

    ‘True Grit’ is tops at the Box Office

    Monday, January 10th, 2011

    “True Grit” was tops with $15 million at the weekend and become the first Western to top the $100 million mark since the 1990s.

    The Paramount release stars Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon held of strong competition from Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller’s comedy “Little Fockers,” which was No. 1 for the previous two weekends and slipped to second with $13.8 million.

    “True Grit,” which was directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, lifted its total to $110.4 million.

    Nicolas Cage’s supernatural thriller “Season of the Witch” opened at No. 3 with $10.7 million. Distributed by Relativity Media, the movie stars Cage as a knight in the Middle Ages escorting a suspected witch to her trial.

    Gwyneth Paltrow’s country-music drama “Country Strong” premiered at No. 6 with $7.3 million. The Sony Screen Gems release casts Paltrow as a boozy singer trying to get her act straight after rehab.

    “True Grit” is a new take on Charles Portis’ novel, previously adapted in a 1969 version that earned John Wayne an Academy Award. Bridges stars as lawman Rooster Cogburn, hired by a 14-year-old girl to track down her father’s killer.

    While “True Grit” rides high, Hollywood’s overall revenues continued a slide that persisted through the fall and holiday season with a drop of 30% on takings from the same time last year.

    Harry Potter Plagiarism Case Dismissed!

    Sunday, January 9th, 2011

    Back in October, a judge had refused to dismiss a Harry Potter plagiarism lawsuit against J.K. Rowling by the estate of late author Adrian Jacob who claimed that the plot of Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire – the fourth of seven in the series – was lifted from Mr Jacobs’ 1987 children’s book Willy The Wizard No 1: Livid Land.

    Mr Jacob’s son and grandson sued Ms Rowling for £500million – claiming that several themes in the book penned by Mr Jacobs were duplicated in 2000 publication of The Goblet Of Fire.

    Judge Shira Sheindlin dismissed the lawsuit, on the grounds that the two books were “distinctly different in both substance and style.”

    She went on to say:  “The contrast between the total concept and feel of the works is so stark that any serious comparison of the two strains credulity.”

    Miss Rowling’s U.S. publisher, Scholastic Corp, welcomed the ruling, saying: ‘The court’s swift dismissal supports our position that the case was completely without merit and that comparing Willy the Wizard to the Harry Potter series was absurd.’
