Trailer Alert: Beasts Of No Nation

Beasts of No Nation, which was bought by Netflix and will officially debut on the platform and in theatres October 16th, is the heartbreaking story of the journey of a child solider in Africa. The big name star is Idris Elba, who plays the mercenary, but the movie’s heart and soul is first time actor Ama K. Abebrese. The film was written and directed by Cary Fukunaga, who was the man behind the camera for all of season 1 of True Detective. He’s an amazing director, and you get a taste for his unique shooting style in certain scenes in the trailer, so I can’t wait to see the entire finished product next month. I’d personally watch Idris Elba tie his shoes for two hours, so I have to imagine he’s amazing here, just like he is in everything else.

SNL Pals Jimmy Fallon & Jason Sudekis Played ‘Drinko’ On The Tonight Show

As a big time SNL fan, I love that Jimmy Fallon is the host of The Tonight Show, because any time you turn on the show, there’s a solid chance an old SNL alum is going to be on, and it’s going to be fun and adorable. Jason Sudekis was never the ‘main guy’ on SNL, but a sketch was always better when he was in it. He could play the straight guy, the wacky guy and everything in between, and he genuinely loved being on the show. He and Fallon reunited last night, and played Fallon’s version of Plinko, which is Drinko. The rules are simple: you drop discs down a Plinko board and whatever two cups the discs land in, you mix together and  drink it. The creepiest part: the hands that come out of nowhere to give you the cups. The best part: no discs land in the tequila cup, but Sudekis drinks it anyway.

T-Pain Singing Without Auto-Tune is Remarkably Good

Why use auto-tune all the time if you got pipes like this?! I don’t really get that move. All along people tearing T down for being a product of a computer program when all along he’s a sweet scoop of brown sugar with a voice like an angel. I have two requests T-Pain. 1. please keep singing without auto-tune and 2. please go back towearing top hats.

Tom Brady Is Free & The NFL Really Sucks At Handing Out Suspensions

Patriots fans right now:

First off, congrats to Tom Brady, the Patriots and Patriots fans. The fact that this whole thing has lasted 9 months and the Patriots and their fans couldn’t even enjoy their Super Bowl win is ridiculous, but the right guy won in the end. Also, how terrible is the NFL at handing out suspensions? Every suspension that initially hand out is reduced or obliterated altogether. It’s almost comical. Now that Brady is going to play week 1, the Patriots are going to really murder some teams. Legitimate murder. And now, my two favorite reactions on Twitter:

Also, no big deal but kind of a big deal. I called this ruling back in August:

Ja Rule Is Upset That Wikipedia Has His Height Wrong, Does Not Understand How Wikipedia Works

Ja Rule is a lot of things, but a master of the internet is clearly not one of them. Apparently he came across his own Wikipedia page, and of all things, was upset that his height was listed wrong. He also simultaneously does and doesn’t know how Wikipedia works. On the one hand, yes, it is inaccurate, which is what happens when ANYONE can edit a web page. On the other hand, he suggests that somebody should “fix his shit”, which is exactly how Wikipedia works. I also like how he used his mug shot to confirm how tall he is. That’s kind of bad ass. If he had never been arrested he would have had to have someone stand next to him with a tape measurer or a bunch of rulers taped together. Infinitely less cool. Regardless of Ja Rule’s internet prowess, we’ll always have the memories:

Crazy Ass Gary Busey Announced He’ll Be On The Newest Season Of DWTS From Atop A Horse On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Gary Busey might be the only person in the world that could get me to watch Dancing With The Stars. It’s easy to call him insane, because he really is, but he’s that special type of insane that doesn’t he’s insane. He thinks yelling at your TV while it’s off or collecting lizards is a thing that everyone does, and while I’m glad everyone isn’t like Gary Busey, I’m he exists. I can’t imagine he’s much a dancer at this stage in his life, but you can bet your sweet ass I’ll be tuning in to see what happens. I really hope he somehow incorporates the horse into his act.

WWE Hall of Famer Jimmy ‘Superfly’ Snuka Has Been Charged With The Murder of His Girlfriend From 1983

WWEHigh-flying wrestling legend Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka got pinned one last time Tuesday — with a 32-year-old murder rap.

The Fiji-born WWE Hall of Famer was jailed on $100,000 bail in Lehigh, Pa. – a stunning fall from grace – in the 1983 death of girlfriend Nancy Argentino, 23, of Brooklyn.

“We never found justice in all this time, but it’s better late than never,” the victim’s sister, Lorraine Salome, 60, told the Daily News.

Prosecutors say Snuka fractured the slender Argentino’s skull during a day of abuse, then failed to call for help for at least 12 hours — and perhaps a full day.

Snuka was arrested four months before that for dragging Argentino by her hair down the hallway of an upstate New York hotel. In that incident near Syracuse, it took sheriff’s deputies and two dogs to get the wrestler under control.

“The next time the violence happened, it was too late,” Salome said at her Brooklyn home. “She was gone and everybody was in shock.”

The sister hopes the accused killer never gets a day’s rest.

It’s been a tough summer if you’re a WWE Hall of Famer and it’s one of the more bizarre summers I can imagine as a wrestling fan. Coming out of WrestleMania 31, WWE was literally on an all time high. They put on one of the best shows ever, the WWE Network numbers were sky rocketing and NXT was taking over the world. Now we’re in September, and between the untimely deaths of Roddy Piper and Dusty Rhodes and the racism/murder scandals of Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Snuka, it’s a really weird time to be a wrestling fan. Of course the Snuka murder is something that has been speculated on for decades. His girlfriend died under mysterious circumstances back in 1983, and he was the only one who had been with her that night. He was somehow never charged, but now it looks like his past has caught up with him. You’re innocent until proven guilty, but whenever you’re arrested 32 years after a murder, it’s usually because they have some kind of evidence on you. Let’s try and keep pro wrestling out of the headlines for awhile, OK guys?
