Learning French Eddie Izzard is brilliant. Here he is on learning French (it gets better toward the end).
Bienvenue chez Cauet Cauet interviews Bradley Cooper during the French promos for The Hangover Part 2 (VF: Very Bad Trip 2). Doing an interview in French doesn’t look that hard.
Return of the Saints I know the producers expected me to be perving at Eliza Dushku in the reimagining of The Saint, shopped at Cannes earlier this month, but I couldn’t get over the fact that Sir Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy are in the pilot in bit parts. Sir Roger also co-produces—I assume Tribune owns the TV rights. More thoughts in my blog post today.
She had one turkey Once upon a time, when NBC was a struggling network, it tried to ape the success of CBS’s The Mary Tyler Moore Show with The Avengers’ (the real one) Diana Rigg in Diana.

Clean since April 7 More evidence of the Google bot being wrong. This is the site that hosted the malware that our ad server was accused of distributing. It’s been clean since April 7. However, Google still provides a warning with its search-engine result, and there’s still a warning page when you click through. Google acknowledges this site is clean, yet still continues to block it. I would say the webmaster has a prima facie case against Google for misrepresentation.
