(Nerd) Newsday Tuesday

Freddie Prinze Jr says Kiefer Sutherland is unprofessional… and nearly everyone replies “Who is Freddie Prinze Jr?” Kiefer’s people address the situation the most obvious way: by pointing out that he has a lucrative career, and that Fox wouldn’t have brought “24” back after 5 years if he were.

While those stars are squabbling, “Walking Dead” actor Steven Yeun addresses racism in Hollywood. He discusses that he has trouble getting roles because there simply aren’t roles for Asian men -and worse, many roles meant for Asian men a whitewashed. You can read more on that here.

Geeks Of Doom gave fans the low down on blu-ray special features for “Agents of SHIELD” they link up a pretty rad blooper real, too.

Quentin Tarantino, now making his foray into comics with Dynamite’s Django Unchained/Zorro crossover series announces that he’ll be directing 2 flicks due out in 2015, one called “The Hateful Eight” and the other? A superlength version of Kill Bill with a 30 minute anime scene.

Also straight out of Comic-Con: Jensen Ackles talks about “Demon Dean” in the season 10 storyline. & Sam Raimi announces an Evil Dead TV series made for Groovy Bruce himself!

In the world of non-entertainment news from San Diego ComicCon: A man plowed into a “Zombie Walk” He started edging out trying to get through the crowd. People/zombies upset about his dangerous driving started banging on the car and sitting on the hood. The man freaked out and drove into the paraders and also injured an 84 year old woman who was not part of the walk.

For the record, I like Wonder Woman’s get up, it’s serious + powerful. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery and it’s just one Amazon emulating another after all. I’ll count it as a nod to Xena and hope that Gal Gadot can hurl and insult or deliver a battle cry half as fiercely as Lucy Lawless.

Male Objectification Monday- Jensen Ackles

“Grrl, are you posting Man Candy Monday on a Tuesday?!”

Who cares, Jensen Ackles’s abs are here.

I know, Jensen, I am so clever and funny. 

Anyway, Jensen has been keeping fans entertained as Dean Winchester on the CW’s Supernatural for the past 9 years. The demon hunting Winchester brothers fall under the category of whiny white misunderstood male protagonists and the plot is accelerated by the fridging of female after female for more angst and has gotten more and more predictable (come on, which one is ending up in which version of the afterlife this time? Probably Dean, Dean’s gotta save Sam, something about Castiel’s wonky powers. Something something King of Hell. Time travel. Our dad lied to us. Blah) and dialogue is laden with homophobic gay jokes. 

But you don’t care what they’re saying, do you?

Nope.

His TV brother is pretty good, too.

Sadly, this show has too many shirts

and towels

But he looks pretty good in clothes, too.

Other roles include voice acting role of the Red Hood in 2010’s Batman: Under the Red Hood. 2009’s My Bloody Valentine and way back in 2001, he played Jessica Alba’s bio engineered brother on Dark Angel (which was a very clever show and should have had the longevity that Supernatural has).
