Britney As Iron Man's Secretary? MySpacers Weigh In On Comic Film's Cast

Who will play Pepper Potts in the big-screen version of "Iron Man"? Well, if fans have their say, it could be a former lesbian witch. Or a geek goddess. Or one of several pouty-lipped lingerie models.

In May, Jon Favreau -- who's directing the "Iron Man" movie -- began asking fans for input on the film via his MySpace page. Everything was going swimmingly until late last week, when he posted a thread asking for advice on the role of Potts.

Virginia "Pepper" Potts first appeared in Marvel Comics' "Tales of Suspense #45" in 1963. Nicknamed "Pepper" because of her freckles, she worked as Tony Stark's personal secretary and confidante and was one of the few people that knew of his secret identity as Iron Man. Described in the Marvel Encyclopedia as "intelligent and extremely quick witted," Potts was a flame-headed ball of moxie and confidence, and though she was a secondary character in the "Iron Man" books, she was a rare early example of female empowerment in the comics universe.

Very quickly, Favreau learned that he should probably be careful what he asks for. Because while early posts included some logical choices (like redheads Alyson Hannigan, Amy Adams and former "Firefly" star Jewel Staite), the whole thing quickly devolved into a contest to see, well, who could post the most pictures of hot chicks in their underwear.

Thoroughly off-the-wall (and no doubt, hormonally charged) suggestions like former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler, Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima and British, uh, "actress" Kelly Brook suddenly became front-runners. Fans posted some head-scratching arguments to support their choices, a few of which we've collected here:

"Stacy Keibler is most likely a mediocre actress, but my God, look at her ... perfection I dare say?" — James Harkness, 24, Atlanta

"Kelly Brook should play Pepper Potts. She's by far the best-looking of all those suggested so far, and she's closer to Robert Downey Jr.'s age." — Rico Vendetta, 24, New York

"You people are the same weirdos who think Kirsten Dunst is hot, right? [My choice is] Kelly Brook." — Ethan, 26, Nashville

"I have to go with Jessica Biel .... she is hot and can handle physical roles." — Big Kenny, 26, New York

"I concur with Jessica Biel. I think old-school Virginia 'Pepper' Potts looks like sexy Jessica Biel with Mary-Janeish beautiful red hair!" — Andre 5000, 30, New York

"How about Catherine Bell? Nice looking, not too young and a hell of a body (ya know what I mean, right)!!!! I'm sure Robert ... I mean Tony would like her ... hee hee — I know I would." — Yannick, 28, Canada

"Jewel Staite or Ron Howard's daughter (I forgot her first name). Both are great." — Cosimo, 29, Macomb Township, MI

"Britney Spears. She is beautiful and has a lot of energy! And so unpredictable." — Livia, 18

Clearly you see the predicament Favreau faces. So many good choices, so many compelling arguments. And while it's not clear just how much fans' input will weigh on his casting decision (if it does at all), we figured that if random Internet users are having their say, then we should probably also get the opinion of the man who, you know, created the character of Pepper Potts, Marvel Comics' guru Stan Lee.

And, as it turns out, he'd go with "none of the above."

"I originally conceived Pepper as a loyal secretary: pretty as hell but a working girl. If she wanted a stylist, she could compete with the legions of beautiful models who are constantly flocking to Tony Stark. But she doesn't want that," Lee told MTV News. "So these women that are being thrown out there, they're not right at all. She's not supposed to be too buxom, or if she is, it wouldn't show too much. She's just an average working girl.

"But, if I had to make a choice, I would probably go with Kirsten Dunst. It's too bad that she's in the 'Spider-Man' films, because she can look like the girl next door, or she could look glamorous," Lee continued. "I'll be honest, I'm not too familiar with most of the girls though. I don't know who Kelly Brook is. I haven't ever seen Lindsay Lohan on the screen."

Robert Downey Jr. is Iron Man!

Marvel Entertainment, Inc.

Academy Award® Nominee Robert Downey Jr. will take on the role of one of Marvel's greatest Super Heroes, signing on as the title character for Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated Iron Man. This project, the first feature film to be produced independently by Marvel Entertainment, will launch into theaters May 2, 2008. The film is being directed by Jon Favreau and will be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Downey is widely recognized as one of Hollywood's most versatile actors. Nominated for an Oscar® for his extraordinary portrayal of Charlie Chaplin in "Chaplin," Downey has been featured in more than 50 films. His upcoming credits include "Fur" (co-starring Nicole Kidman), "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints," and the David Fincher film "Zodiac." He has also recently been seen in such films as: "A Scanner Darkly," "The Shaggy Dog," "Good Night, And Good Luck.," "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang," "Gothika," "The Singing Detective" and "Wonder Boys."

Based upon Marvel's iconic Super Hero, Iron Man tells the story of Tony Stark, a billionaire industrialist and genius inventor who is kidnapped and forced to build a devastating weapon. Instead, using his intelligence and ingenuity, Tony builds a high-tech suit of armor and escapes captivity. Upon his return to America, Tony must come to terms with his past. When he uncovers a nefarious plot with global implications, he dons his powerful armor and vows to protect the world as Iron Man.

"Robert Downey Jr. is one of the most talented and acclaimed actors of this generation. His versatility sets him apart and makes him an ideal fit to play such a complex character as Iron Man. We could not think of another actor better suited to bring one of Marvel's crown jewels to the big screen and be the centerpiece of our first independently produced feature," said Kevin Feige, President of Production, Marvel Studios.

Marvel Studios is currently casting all supporting roles. Filming is slated to begin in Los Angeles in February 2007.

Iron Man will be produced by Feige and Avi Arad. Executive Producers are Michael Helfant, Ari Arad, Favreau, Louis D'Esposito and Peter Billingsley. Downey is represented by CAA.

Suri Cruise makes debut in Vanity Fair

NEW YORK - With a cherubic face and a shock of dark hair, Suri Cruise — subject of the world's most anticipated baby photo — made her debut Wednesday on the cover of Vanity Fair.

The magazine's 22-page spread of 4 1/2-month-old Suri and her famous parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, includes photos taken by Annie Leibovitz for the October issue, on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles and nationwide on Sept. 12.

The cover photo shows Suri peeking out of a jacket worn by Cruise with Holmes looking on. Katie Couric, in her first night as anchor of the "CBS Evening News," revealed the photo Tuesday.

Born April 18, Suri had not previously appeared in any published photos, prompting some public speculation about her very existence.

"She has Kate's lips and eyes," the 44-year-old Cruise is quoted as telling the magazine. Counters Holmes: "I think she has Tom's eyes. I think she looks like Tom."

Leading up to the frenzy over the photos, "We were just living our lives, being a family," Cruise says. "Actually, we were taking our own photos and always planned to release those at the right time."

But "then all the craziness began," Holmes, 27, says. "This `where is Suri?' controversy. Tom and I looked at each other and said, `What's going on?' We weren't trying to hide anything."

Holmes also explains their purchase of a sonogram machine, saying she and Cruise were followed by paparazzi and as a result, her doctor had to make house calls.

"The sonogram was for his use!" she says.

Holmes says of her daughter: "She's a glorious girl. She's the miracle of our life."

Jackie Chan Protests Racy Magazine Pics

Hong Kong action star Jackie Chan, center, and Tony Leung Ka-fai, right, arrive at Hong Kong's government headquarters during a demonstration Tuesday, Aug. 29,. 2006. Members of Hong Kong's entertainment industry attended a televised rally Monday to protest tabloid journalism they said violated their privacy rights. The demonstration was sparked by the publication of photos of pop star Gillian Chung changing her clothes after a recent concert in Malaysia. The pictures were on the cover of the weekly Easy Finder magazine. Black T-shirts read: "Bitterness and disgust, To tolerate evil is to abet it." (AP Photo/Vincent Yu)

Jackie Chan and fellow stars marched silently Tuesday to Hong Kong's government headquarters, protesting against a gossip magazine that featured a cover photo of a pop singer changing backstage.

The celebrities, wearing black T-shirts, handed over a petition denouncing the photos that were secretly taken of Hong Kong pop singer Gillian Chung, part of the popular female duo Twins. The stars urged the government to tighten laws governing racy publications.

Chung was shown adjusting her bra backstage after a concert in Malaysia's Genting Highlands. It appeared on the cover of the current issue of Easy Finder weekly.

The photos have sparked a major backlash. Government regulators have received a deluge of complaints. Hong Kong's Obscene Articles Tribunal has classified the magazine issue "indecent," which could lead to prosecution. Chan and fellow stars attended a TV special protesting the photos Monday.

Hong Kong leader Donald Tsang spoke out against the photos Tuesday.

"I identify with society's strong criticism of these tactics," he said.

Journalists have opposed restrictions on their coverage as a threat to press freedom. Legal reforms propose banning secret surveillance by private parties, but the government is still considering the recommendations.

Asked if he wants to see paparazzi photos banned completely, Chan said he believed celebrities should be held accountable for their actions.

"As public figures, we should allow our pictures to be taken. If we crash our cars when we're drunk, it serves us right. People should scold us. But for a girl to be photographed when she's in a changing room, such a private place, is despicable behavior," he said.

Also Tuesday, about 10 protesters burned a copy of the Easy Finder issue outside Next Media, the media group that publishes the magazine.

Chung has filed for a court injunction demanding Easy Finder turn over the photos and reported the matter to both Hong Kong and Malaysian police.

Malaysia's Deputy Internal Security Minister Fu Ah Kiow said in an interview with Hong Kong's Cable TV aired Tuesday authorities will investigate people in the changing room at Genting with Chung and Genting's security personnel.

Hong Kong's celebrity-obsessed culture, its small size and its status as a hub for Chinese entertainment has made for a tense relationship between local paparazzi and movie and pop stars.

A local magazine was shut down temporarily amid a backlash after it published a cover photo of a visibly distressed, seminude female, widely reported to be actress Carina Lau, in October 2002.

Paris Hilton Kicks Off YouTube's New Ad Strategy

By Erika Morphy

YouTube, the popular Internet video social networking site, has started selling video ad space in prime spots on its home page. YouTube draws more than 100 million viewers to its site everyday.

YouTube is exploring ways to monetize its traffic flow of 100 million downloads a day by launching a pay-for-play video advertising service. Its inaugural spot is a promotion for Paris Hilton's new album, "Paris."

YouTube will feature one ad each day, which site visitors can rate and comment on in the same way they evaluate consumer-created videos. Hilton's ad has earned a meager two stars out of five, so far, and drawn 679 comments -- many of which are less than laudatory.

Until now, YouTube has concentrated on building a brand name and a participating community -- an effort that has succeeded admirably. Advertising has been limited to text ads or banner ads. More recently, YouTube has broached the idea of sponsorship advertising. Now, though, it is entering an entirely new sphere with its video ad product.

Smart Strategy
"This is a very smart strategy on the part of YouTube," said David Card, senior analyst for JupiterResearch. It meets a number of challenges that have stymied online marketers, he told TechNewsWorld. The online market has become so fragmented that it is difficult to formulate a coherent marketing strategy. It has also become very crowded, thus making it difficult to grab consumers' attention with any one advertising vehicle.

YouTube's audience is fairly homogenous, Card noted, which makes it a good venue for many youth-oriented items. Also, because YouTube is among the first to offer video advertising in such a fashion, it will likely stand out from the clutter, he said.

To be sure, YouTube's video advertising market has a narrow constituency. Many firms, Card noted, would be understandably nervous to advertise in an environment dominated by consumer-created content -- much of which mocks the very companies that might want to advertise on the site. The customer service operations at AOL and Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSK) , for instance, were recently skewered in videos created by disgruntled users. Read more

The Libertine, a Historical Movie

Starring: Johnny Depp, Samantha Morton, John Malkovich, Rosamund Pike
Director: Laurence Dunmore

Official website: http://www.miramax.com/thelibertine/

The Libertine is no boring, historical movie. Neither can you classify it as a classics movie like Pride And Prejudice or Elizabeth.

The Libertine is based on the acclaimed stage play of the same name by Stephen Jeffreys. Brash and raw in cinematography, the movie is helmed by first-time director, Laurence Dunmore. The British commercial and music video director brings a gritty and in-your-face realism to the movie, captured mainly on hand-held. Not to be easily upstaged by the movie’s freshness is the movie's main character, John Wilmot a.k.a. the 2nd Earl of Rochester (Johnny Depp).

Provocative, rebellious, daring and yet downright irrepressible in charisma and in genius, you either love or hate the man. Rochester is exiled for kidnapping his heiress bride, his love-hate relationship with King Charles II (John Malkovich) due to his no-holds barred criticisms and mockery on the King and the monarchy, his love and fascination for all things sexual and the arts and his failed affair with a struggling stage actress, Elizabeth Barry (Samantha Morton). But beneath the show of flamboyance and devil-may-care attitude, he is a man with a brilliant flair for poetry and theatre and hold an abyss-deep earnestness of seeking acceptance from the world that is unable to keep up with him.

The character's complexity is wonderfully played out by the hard-to-define Johnny Depp. Having led an equally heady and unconventional life and career in his early days himself, Depp easily convinces us that he IS Rochester. But as the movie progressed, one could not help but feel that the shadows of Captain Jack Sparrow lurked somewhere in Rochester.

If you felt disgust or some contempt for the man, then Rochester's short-lived life and death at an early age might win him your sympathies. Condemned by the King for his refusal to be involved in politics and betrayed and spurned by his lover, Rochester goes into a never-ending downward spiral. Eventually, he manages to redeem himself before he succumbed to his illness.

As the credits rolled at the movie's end, ask yourself these two questions: was this a man worthy of your sympathy or was it his retribution for his deeds? Or just simply in Rochester's own repeated words, "Do you like me now?"

'Miami Vice' takes $25.2M, sinks 'Pirates'

By GARY GENTILE, AP Business Writer

LOS ANGELES - The "Miami Vice" speedboat overtook the "Pirates of the Caribbean" juggernaut to capture the top spot at the weekend box office.


The film, which pairs Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx as the iconic TV characters Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs, took in $25.2 million, compared to $20.5 million for "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," according to studio estimates Sunday.

"It's nice to be number one," said Nikki Rocco, president of distribution at Universal Pictures.

The gritty, dark action film was directed by Michael Mann, who created the 1980s TV show. The movie was especially attractive to older audiences, with 62 percent of the audience over 30, according to the studio's exit polling. Read more...

Garfield 2: A Tail of Two Kitties

Not to be catty, but did we need another Garfield movie? The flabby tabby's 2004 pic proved pretty cat-egorically that what worked in newspaper strip form can look pretty paw-ltry on the big screen, even with $50m of CGI to play with. Helmer Tim Hill ups the ante by relocating the lasagne-loving feline to Merrie Olde England and by giving him a posh lookalike to swap places with. Even at 78 minutes, though, Garfield 2 has all the energy of a dead mouse.

Following his owner Jon (Breckin Meyer) to London to stop him proposing to his vet girlfriend (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray) is soon confused for the snooty Prince (Tim Curry) and transplanted to the stately estate the latter has just inherited. Spurned Lord Dargis (Billy Connolly) has other ideas, though, plotting a cat-astrophic end for the hairy heir so he can have the loot for himself. Fortunately for Garfield, and the movie, Prince's home comes with a menagerie of talking critters that unite to foil this sneaky scheme.


The large voice cast is the chief cat-traction this time around, with Bob Hoskins, Jane Horrocks, Richard E Grant et al bringing some homegrown charisma to their feathery and four-legged characters. As before, though, they tend to point up the blandness of the human players, not to mention the incongruity of the orange, computer-animated fuzzball in their midst. Post-Four Weddings, meanwhile, it appears Hollywood can't get enough of us wacky Brits with our stuffy manners and sprawling country piles.

Where the heck is Suri Cruise?

My cynical opinion -- Tom wants to out do Brad.

So here's my theory. Brad and Angelina got around $4 mil for the first pics of Shiloh, which they donated to charity. The word on the street is that Tom and Katie couldn't get more than $3 million for Suri pics. When you're as big as Tom Cruise, the only place to go is down. He was the biggest star in the world for a long time, loved by all. Now he's neither the biggest nor loved that much.

So forget about the conspiracy theories. People just weren't as into Suri pics as Shiloh pics, and it probably drove Tom nuts. But wait -- there's a solution. Create a mystery and the world will go crazy. That's exactly what I think is going on. If people start questioning if this baby really exists, the pictures automatically become more valuable. If he gets more than $4 mil, he beats Brad. I'm guessing if that happens, the money goes to Scientology, which could make the whole plan backfire.

In this town, stars make their own luck. Until recently, the Cruise machine was the master of managed publicity. I think this could be an attempt to re-capture some good ol' glory days.

Over The Hedge (2006)

The culture-clash antics of The Wild are reprised in a domestic setting in Dreamworks' animation Over the Hedge, which sees a 'family' of woodland creatures unite against the suburban neighbourhood that has encroached upon their patch during hibernation. Amusing set-pieces and an eclectic cast headed by Bruce Willis and Garry Shandling make this adaptation of the popular US comic strip frothy and entertaining, though the lack of a decent plot or memorable characters starts to show around the hour mark.

Waking up to find their natural habitat fenced by a humongous hedge, behind which lies a sprawling and hostile housing development, timorous turtle Verne (Shandling), preening possum Ozzie (William Shatner) and their buddies fear for the future. But help is at hand from RJ (Willis), a fast-talking raccoon who urges them to raid their new neighbours' rubbish bins for discarded junk food.

Under orders to replenish a grumpy bear's larder, however, RJ has an ulterior motive for turning his new pals into scavengers. And without Bill Oddie to save them from Allison Janney's house-proud gorgon, the titular hedge is the least of their worries.


Scoring satirical points about America's over-consumption doesn't quite excuse joint directors Tim Johnson (Antz) and Karey Kirkpatrick (writer of Chicken Run) from their film's slack pacing and repetitiveness, while the stunt casting of Avril Lavigne as Shatner's daughter results in the blandest vocal performance since Brad Pitt's in Sinbad. Thank goodness then for Steve Carell's hyperactive squirrel Hammy, easily the funniest and most appealing critter in this particular forest

Will Bloom/ Bosworth Film Be The Next Break-Up Or Gigli?

BEVERLY HILLS, California — British heartthrob Orlando Bloom has forged an impressive career by traveling the seven seas (Pirates Of The Caribbean), assisting a fellowship's quest through Middle Earth (The Lord Of The Rings) and battling renegades in Somalia (Black Hawk Down).

Now the 29-year-old hunk is making plans to embark on what could be his most hazardous mission yet: working with his girlfriend.

Bloom has signed on to Seasons Of Dust, the suddenly high-profile Tim Blake Nelson project that recently attracted Kate Bosworth too. Bloom and the Superman Returns beauty have been involved in a tabloid-fueling on-again, off-again relationship for more than four years.

"[Nelson's] a fantastic actor and director," Bloom said of the "Syriana" character actor and director of the obscure Holocaust flick "The Grey Zone." "He's going to direct this film called Seasons Of Dust, which is a really cool movie, set in 1935 in the Dust Bowl in Oklahoma City. It's set during the Depression and drought. That was a real tough time in American history."

It will be the first onscreen collaboration between Bloom and his 23-year-old flame. They will be following in the footsteps of recent real-couple successes Jennifer Aniston/ Vince Vaughn (The Break-Up) and Brad Pitt/ Angelina Jolie (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), while to be fair, both of those couples weren't together when filming began.

Johnny Depp: Captain Jack's Back!

JOHNNY DEPP returns for more lunacy in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest' -- and the charismatic star is talking to MARK STEINES about his highly anticipated sequel.

Johnny admits that his alter-ego Captain Jack is more than just another character: "He's definitely part of me ... it's criminal fun to play him. When they came up with the idea of parts two and three, it was an opportunity to jump in these shoes again."

One plus for Johnny was his sea legs. "Luckily, I haven't been sick, I'm probably just too dumb to get seasick!" Read more...
