Clark will also be on The Queen Latifah Show this Wednesday October 9th (Yes, she has a show and is killing in the ratings) and Gary will also be returning to the Late Show With David Letterman on November 7th.

"Made In America" captures Jay Z uniting the biggest names in music - including Clark, D'Angelo, Janelle Monáe, Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Run-D.M.C., Kanye West - to perform at a star-studded, multi-genre, two-day "Made in America" festival in Philadelphia. The film chronicles the inspirational event, which emphasizes "the diversity of musical genres that appeal to today's youth, the cultural heterogeneity of the festival's target audience - and, perhaps most important, the myriad possibilities for success that exist for those willing to do the hard work of making dreams come true," as Variety put it in its review.

Nice to see Janelle and Gary getting some shine on this.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Pretty impressive that Ron Howard is behind this. Perhaps more films like this will be made now?

"The Dark Tower" by Steven King has been cancelled by Universal Pictures.  It ran into trouble as it was supposed to start shooting this summer but in late spring, Universal announced there would be a delay to make the movie more cost-effective.  It looks like they were not able to do that.

The project was to be directed by Ron Howard with Javier Bardem to star.  Universal is not making any more comments public about "The Dark Tower" although 3 movies were to be made.  Comcast took over Universal after the movie was agreed upon last fall. 

No word on how Imagine Entertainment feels about Universal's decision not to make the movie now after all.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Too High Of A Budget


Heidi Montag Makes Fun Of Her Plastic Surgery

We almost did not post this due to Spencer Bratt Pratt being in it. Here is a funny or die video of Heidi Montag making fun of her plastic surgery she has had.

It's funny now, yes. A few more surgeries....it won't be so funny.

Check out the video and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB

P.S. Director Ron Howard shot the video.


“Angels & Demons” Beams Away “Star Trek”

"Angels & Demons", the sequel to "The Da Vinci Code" took in $48 Million to displace Star Trek from the number 1 spot.  It beat the Chris Pine movie by about $5 million dollars.  It only dropped 43 percent which is the best in 3 years, even better than the Dark Knight.

Tom Hanks & Ron Howard still have that box office clout.  World Wide, "Angels & Demons" did amazingly well, taking in over $150 million combined with the debut in America.  Clout baby, clout.-Dr.FB


Video: Jamie Foxx & T-Pain “Blame it”
