Legal Thriller for Matthew McConaughey  

Matthew McConaughey is set to play another lawyer in the upcoming legal thriller, "The Lincoln Lawyer."

Based on the book by Michael Connolly, McConaughey is attached to star as low-level criminal defense attorney Michael Haller who has to defend a super-rich client. The problem is, this wealthy customer may have ties to a previous murder case that Haller handled.

The last time McConaughey starred as a lawyer, effectively, was in "A Time to Kill" based on a John Grisham novel.

Eeewww Story of the Day! Cloris Leachman Had an Affair with Gene Hackman! 

Okay, before you guys hyperventilate, the affair didn't happen now, it occurred decades ago in the 1970s when Cloris Leachman and Gene Hackman were both younger.

The 82-year old actress is writing a memoir called Cloris where she revealed her affair with Hackman. It started with a nice dinner, then finished off with a hot, steamy passionate tryst in San Francisco where both were shooting films.

Here's an excerpt:

"As we moved into the main course, it was as if a cosmic wind enveloped us. Some giant space magnet was pulling us together. We didn't finish the meal. We went upstairs, flew into bed and made love. It was epic. And the next morning, Gene went back to his film and I went back to mine. I haven't seen Gene since that night, but I remember well the feisty lad he was."

You go Miss Cloris!

But in all honesty, whatever happened to the Cloris Leachman the respected actress? I missed seeing her in passionate films like her Academy Award winning-turn in "The Last Picture Show."

But at least she's alive and kicking, and enjoying her renewed fame thanks to "Dancing with the Stars." And apparently, she's still thinking of sex :happy

Coming Soon: Contemporary Jesus Story in "American Jesus" 

Director Matthew Vaughn ("Stardust") and comics creator Mark Millar ("Wanted") just finished collaborating on "Kick-Ass," and now, the duo are planning to reteam again for "American Jesus."

"American Jesus," written by Millar, is a comic book miniseries detailing the return of Christ and his eventual showdown with the Antichrist.

So Christ as a super hero! That's freaking cool!

Another cool angle with the Vaughn/Millar collaboration? They made "Kick-Ass" outside the studio system! So they're rebels as well :happy
