THAT EXPLAINS BORAT'S BULGE IN "SWEENEY TODD" -- SACHA BARON COHEN'S DEMONIC SECRET!!! 


According to Handbag, director Tim Burton has admitted that Sacha Baron used padding in his trousers when filming the musical "Sweeney Todd."

"Borat" and "Ali G" star Sacha Baron Cohen's confidence took a knock yesterday when "Sweeney Todd" director Tim Burton let the cat out of the bag about his impressive performance in the upcoming musical by admitting Cohen had used padding to achieve a prodigious trouser bulge.

"I thought he was just happy to do a musical!" Burton explained. "I didn't ask [how he did it]. But I was happy when I saw it."

And let me tell ya, Cohen's big bulge is the most frightening thing about the movie!

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND JESSICA BIEL -- BIG SCREEN DREAMS!!! 


Teen Hollywood is reporting that pop superstar Justin Timberlake is set to take his relationship with actress Jessica Biel to the big screen. The couple are currently looking for a movie project to work on together and are trying to agree on a suitable genre.

Apparently, Justin wants to do a comedy, while Jessica wants something grittier (she rocks in "The Illusionist").

Hhhhmmmmmm, let's see, they should do a dark comedy!

Meanwhile, Miss Biel, who wants darker roles, is set to do a romantic comedy! What?

But hold on folks, it's a film based on the Noel Coward play called "Easy Virtue." Biel will play an American divorcee, Larita Huntington, who travels to the South of France and marries a young wealthy Englishman John Whittaker, to be played by Ben Barnes, on the spur of the moment.

The couple return to England to face his unapproving family, including his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Whittaker, played by Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Like "Meet the Whittakers!"

But I'm sure Australian director Stephan Elliott, the guy who gave us "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" will put his original spin!

FIRST IT'S "RAMBO," NOW....IT'S "CONAN THE BARBARIAN!!!" 


Lionsgate films, purveyor of pop-culture junk food! First, they're releasing "Rambo" on Jan. 25th. Now, talks are being made that "Conan the Barbarian" will return to the big screen!

Listen, I love "Conan" as much as you do, but this new film version will not star the famous celeb-Governor from California!

As you may totally recall, the original 80s film launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. But now, owners of the Robert E. Howard created character are treading carefully. Why not? There are profits from comic books, video games (Xbox 360), and online role-playing games at stake!

Here are some fun facts:

* The film will be written by Thomas Dean Donnely and Joshua Oppenheimer (the guys who gave us the equally junkie "Sahara")

* Production is set to begin later this year DEPENDING on the Writers strike!

WHERE'S RED SONJA WHEN YOU NEED HER?
