Eric Matthews (Will Friedle) Will Be The Voice Of Star-Lord In The ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Animated Series

Plays With SquirrelsAfter the release of Guardians Of The Galaxy back in August of last year, Marvel and Disney have made sure to capitalize on the film’s instant success. The film was such a hit with critics and projected for such high box office numbers that a sequel was announced at Comic-Con International, a week before the movie was even released in theaters. After its release, Guardians spawned everything imaginable in merchandising, from action figures to raccoon ear headphones, and made an overnight action star/sex symbol of Chris Pratt.

Back in October, at New York Comic-Con, Disney and Marvel announced plans for a Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series on the Disney XD channel. With all of the success the franchise has seen it is no surprise that Disney would approach Marvel about utilizing Guardians the same way they did Star Wars with Star Wars Rebels. While the series does not have a solid premiere date other than some time this year, more news has come forward about casting voices for the Guardians. Today, Disney has announced that Boy Meets World actor Will Friedle will be providing the voice of Star-Lord, the character made famous by action star/sex symbol Chris Pratt.

It’s always wonderful when two of your favorite things come together to make a beautiful baby, and that is exactly what happened here. Will Friedle, most famously known as Eric Matthews on Boy Meets World, will be voicing Star-Lord for the new Guardians Of The Galaxy animated series on Disney. If you love Boy Meets World (how could you not) and Guardians Of The Galaxy (HOW COULD YOU NOT) then this is pretty cool news. There’s a solid chance I won’t watch the show, but who cares, because Eric Matthews is back on a television screen (sort of) which is right where he belongs. The only left to do is for the creators of the animated series to sneak Plays With Squirrels into an episode and I’ll be able to die a happy man.

Adam Savage From MythBusters Is A Madman, And I Love It

Just in case you were looking for something to do in your spare time you could always recreate the maze from ‘The Shining’. Because that wouldn’t be incredibly hard to do or anything. My first reaction, this is fucking awesome. My second reaction, this is fucking AWESOME. It makes me angry how talented mr Adam Savage is not to mention what a fantastic shop he has. Hey Adam, got any internships available? Teach me!

Who’s Excited For Dakota Johnson & Her ‘Exciting’ Personality To Host SNL This Week?

I think Dakota Johnson is getting a bad rap. It’s widely known that book nerds are the most vicious critics out there. It’s happened with Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, and now it’s spreading into movies like Gone Girl and more recently 50 Shades of Grey. No matter what the actors and filmmakers do, the movie will never live up to the hype of the book. I don’t know if people expected Dakota Johnson to be some kind of kinky sex slave in real life, but she gives a perfectly fine interview and presents herself well yet everyone jumps down her throat. Of course for me personally, the ultimate test of a man or woman’s merit is how well they host SNL. This is Dakota’s first time, so she has a chance to either shut everyone up or be terrible. Since I’ll be watching the show, I’m hoping for the former. The cast should have an extra pep in their step after their extended time off and the SNL 40 special, so let’s hope they have some good material and tomorrow night’s show is a success. – Ryan

Seth Rollins Showed Up on ‘The Daily Show’ Last Night & Officially Challenged Jon Stewart To Come To Raw

In case you haven’t been following this story, Seth Rollins casually mentioned he could take over for Jon Stewart on ‘The Daily Show’ during a recent Raw, to which Jon Stewart replied via YouTube, to which Seth Rollins re replied via TMZ’s YouTube. Rollins thinks he would a better (and funnier) host of ‘The Daily Show’ and Jon Stewart is an American hero who will not go quietly into the night. Well last night, things hit a boiling point when Rollins sneakily appeared on ‘The Daily Show’ and issued an open challenge for Stewart to appear on this week’s Raw from New Jersey. I have to imagine Stewart will show up in some capacity, or else why would he go through all the trouble of having Rollins confront him on air. I would love for the story to be that Stewart and Randy Orton are best friends, and Rollins picking on Stewart is what finally makes Randy snap and RKO him into next year. Either that or Orton and Jon Stewart vs. Seth Rollins and J & J Security at WrestleMania 31 in a handicap tag match. I’ll be happy with either of those things happening.

Will Patton Proves That Even American Heroes Who Save The World From Extinction Can Get DUI’s

ArmageddonActor Will Patton, of the movies “Remember the Titans” and “Armageddon” and the current TNT series “Falling Skies,” was charged Tuesday with driving under the influence in his native South Carolina.

Patton, 60, was stopped on the Isle of Palms on Tuesday night and charged with first offense driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of less than 0.10, court records show. The legal limit for driving is 0.08.

Patton was driving a pickup truck seen veering over the center line of the main road through the beach community northeast of Charleston, according to an incident report.

The arresting officer asked Patton whether he had been drinking, and he replied, “Not too much, a couple bottles … er … couple of glasses of wine,” the report said.

I guess South Carolina cops don’t give you any credit for saving the world. Will Patton, the scene stealer in Remember The Titans and Armageddon, was arrested for DUI after he was .02 over the legal limit, which kind of sucks. I’ve always been under the impression that if you get pulled over and your BAC is that low then you’re just a bad driver. If a 60 year old man has a BAC of .10 he’s not drunk. If Patton was “veering over the  center line” then he’s probably just a shit driver. While informing the officer who pulled you over that you had “a couple bottles…er…couples glasses of wine” is good in theory and probably a fun story to tell your friends later, you probably shouldn’t say that. Also, if Will Patton’s BAC was only .10 after he had a couple bottles of wine, maybe he should cool off on the drinking for awhile. At least we know he’ll never have to pay taxes.

Kevin Garnett’s Return To Minnesota Is Your Daily Reminder That Sports Are Awesome

This is one of those moments that you can’t really put into words. Kevin Garnett is one of, if not the greatest competitor in the history of basketball, and maybe even sports in general. You can personally love him or hate him, but his intensity and skill can not be denied. Also, his importance to the Timberwolves franchise is incomparable. He’s first in franchise history in points, rebounds, assists, steals and every other major statistcal category. He may won a title in Boston and played a few forgettable seasons in Brooklyn, but when you think of the Minnesota Timberwolves, you think of Kevin Garnett. As a side note, how great is it for Andrew Wiggins to have KG in Minnesota? He’s already had a great rookie year, and now with KG there to constantly pushing him to get better, he should be one of the best players in the league sooner rather than later.

In Case You Needed A Reminder That The World Is Ass Backwards, The Kardashians Just Signed A $100 Million Deal With E!

WHYThe Kardashians have signed a record-breaking, $100 million-plus deal to remain with E! for another four years, sources have exclusively confirmed to Page Six.

Momager Kris Jenner recently secured the astonishing deal for herself and daughters Kim,Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Bruce Jenner is not part of the deal, having previously agreed that he will be leaving after the upcoming 10th season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Bruce has his own show at E! based on his sex transition.

The Kardashian deal, the highest in TV history for a reality brand, is being kept strictly under wraps. E!’s parent company, Comcast, says it plans to save by spending less on content if its proposed merger with Time Warner Cable goes ahead.

The deal covers at least four more seasons of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” as well as spinoffs, which have included “Kourtney and Khloé Take the Hamptons.” E! executives also believe the family’s huge social media following will fuel future digital projects. Jenner had previously been rumored to be in talks about a Kardashian YouTube channel.

EXCELLENT. This is exactly what the world needs. Not only are the Kardashians going to continue to be on television, but they’re going to be making even more money. Kourtney Kardashian is worth $18 million. Kim Kardashian is worth $65 million. Kris Jenner is worth $125 million. Typing literally made me throw up all over my keyboard. As someone invested in the future of humanity, this is a huge blow to the sanity of mankind. Honestly, it’s no wonder the younger generation wants to be a reality TV star. If you can have a net worth of $65 million for having sex with a black guy on tape and crying on television, why would you aspire to be anything else? God damn it all.

Trailer Alert – ‘Zombeavers’, An Actual Movie About Killer Beavers That Turn Into Zombies

I like to pride myself on being able to describe most of what I see on the internet, but after watching this movie trailer four times, I’m still at a loss for words. ‘Zombeavers’ looks like it has some decent production value, which means actual money was put into this thing. It’s got everything you’re used to seeing in a horror movie: pretty girls in bikini’s, brain dead main characters, a secluded setting and beaver dams. You show me a classic horror movie without a beaver dam and I’ll show you a poor excuse for a horror movie. Evil beavers weren’t enough for this movie, though, so not only are the beavers evil and trying to kill everyone, but when the humans kill the beavers, they come back as zombies. I know The Walking Dead gets a lot of viewers every week, but they’d be pretty stupid not to steal a few ideas from this movie. I’m thinking mixing in Walkers and beavers to give the un-dead a little pizzazz. Also, “They’ll Dam You To Hell” might be my favorite movie slogan of all time.

It’s Time For The WWE To #GiveDivasAChance – Introducing The ‘Queen of the Ring’ Tournament

image

There has been constant random booking and mainly NO TIMING when it comes to the main roster Diva’s and more specifically the buildup to WrestleMania, and I believe I have a unique idea that could possibly help reignite the Diva’s division as a whole.  The concept is an adaption of the “King of the Ring” but instead would be referred to as “Queen of the Ring” for obvious reasons. The finals of the tournament would be contested at Wrestlemania.

Now there would be about 20-23 diva’s involved in this match, including most of the “Main Roster” Diva’s and some of the NXT diva’s, but also leave some room for any returning and/or debuting talents as the tournament went on. Here’s the best part about the tournament: the current Diva’s Champion would ALSO be thrown into this tournament with every tournament round match she is placed in being a championship title defense, which in turn will bring more prestige and excitement to the division.

Personally I’m sick and tired of watching the diva’s division not only get pushed to the back burner by WWE but also the fans in general, because these women have so much potential but barely get to showcase due to time restraints or poor booking.

Hey! What do I know I’m just a wrestling fan!
