Congress looking at problem of loud commercials

Congress tackles loud volume of TV commercials
"I not only dive for the mute button, but I end up having to close my windows so that the blast doesn't affect by neighbors," says Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto. "I live on a cul-de-sac, and so the sound resonates." Irritated with loud commercials, the California Democrat found it was also a common complaint with the Federal Communications Commission. So she drafted a bill aimed at preventing TV ads from playing noticeably louder than programs they sponsor. The House is scheduled to vote today on the bill. An identical measure has been introduced in the Senate. Even if they become law, will viewers notice much difference? Maybe, maybe not, some experts say.

Joss Whedon to make animated Buffy season 8

Joss Whedon Animates Season Eight of Buffy the Vampire Slayer :: TV :: News :: Paste
Whedon is not stopping to lick his wounds. As previously reported, he is set to direct an episode of Fox’s Glee in the second half of its season. And now news comes that he is casting voice actors for Season Eight of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which he will make into animated webisodes based around the comics. Dr. Horrible fans may be disappointed about the news. Whedon cryptically stated that he was working on “internet ventures” after Dollhouse was cancelled, leading to speculation that he would create more episodes of the popular web-only series. However, salivating Buffy fans will be ecstatic. Four years after Fox cancelled Buffy in 2003, Dark Horse Comics produced a comic-book series that picked up where the seventh and final season left off. The comics have been so popular that Whedon recently announced that what was originally conceived to be just a 40-issue “season” would be continued into Season Nine.

I thought they couldn't make me want to see "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" but I was wrong

Natalie Portman Plans to Play Zombie-Slayer | Underwire | Wired.com
Natalie Portman gets into the flesh-eating genre as producer-star of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. She’s teaming with Donnie Darko creator Richard Kelly on the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s best-seller. Describing the Lionsgate-backed venture, Annette Savitch, a producer with Portman’s handsomecharlie company, told Variety: “The idea of zombies running rampant in 19th-century England may sound odd, but it lends a modern sense of urgency to a well-known love story.”

Tom Waits to play Smaug the Dragon?

Tom Waits to star in The Hobbit? | Music | guardian.co.uk Completely amazing, if true.
Will Tom Waits battle Bilbo Baggins? A "trusted" source working on Guillermo del Toro's production of The Hobbit claims that the singer-songwriter is up for a part. Waits has acted before, in films such as Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Robert Altman's Short Cuts and Jim Jarmusch's Down By Law. But he has never played the kind of character you would expect to find in a JRR Tolkien's novel. Though the role under consideration isn't clear, an anonymous source told Ain't It Cool News that Waits is near the top of del Toro's list. "As much as I'd like to say he's a lock, I'm told he's simply someone the production is talking about," claims the source, "but they seem to be talking about him pretty seriously." For all his charms, Waits seems an unlikely pick for Bilbo, the titular hobbit played by Ian Holm in The Lord of the Rings films. He is, above all, too grumpy. Besides, a cornucopia of much more avuncular, nerdy actors, including The Office's Martin Freeman, Harry Potter's Daniel Radcliffe and Doctor Who's David Tennant are reportedly under consideration for the part. The film-makers are reportedly auditioning unknown actors too.

Iron Man had no script

Jeff Bridges Admits Iron Man Movie Had No Script - iron man - io9 This is Jeff Bridges talking about it.
"They had no script, man. They had an outline. We would show up for big scenes every day and we wouldn't know what we were going to say. We would have to go into our trailer and work on this scene and call up writers on the phone, 'You got any ideas?' Meanwhile the crew is tapping their foot on the stage waiting for us to come on." Bridges, director Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. would literally act out sequences during primitive rehearsals, Downey taking on Bridges's role and vice versa, to find and essentially improvise their way to full scenes, the actor recounts. Bridges says that the entire production was probably saved by the improv prowess of the film's director and star. "You've got the suits from Marvel in the trailer with us saying, 'No, you wouldn't say that,'" Bridges continued. "You would think with a $200 million movie you'd have the shit together, but it was just the opposite. And the reason for that is because they get ahead of themselves. They have a release date before the script, ‘Oh, we'll have the script before that time,' and they don't have their shit together. . . .
