Why Megan Fox Won't Star in Transformers 3, Nic Cage TMI, Twilight Crisis Averted

May 17, 2010

Buzz Bin writer Stacie Hougland has been MIA for the last 336 hours (that's 2 weeks, for those of you counting) watching the extended special edition collectible director’s cut of Avatar. She has finally uncrossed her eyes and returns this week.

  •  Who's the Real Jerk? Depending on whose spin you're buying, Megan Fox was either dumped by Paramount, or left Transformers 3 this week on her own accord because Michael Bay is an abusive a-hole. I'm inclined to believe there's truth to both sides....
  •  Too Much Information Nic Cage gets weirder and weirder. First it was a pyramid-shaped tomb in New Orleans, now he confesses he only eats things who have "dignified" sex, like fish and fowl, but not pigs. He might still have that sweet BevHills mansion if he put as much thought into his career choices as he does in his dinner's sex life. Next!
  •  Blood Money Twihards will be thrilled to know Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz will stay part of the Cullen family in Breaking Dawn, having settled for $1.25 million after asking anywhere from $2-4 mil. Glad that got resolved!.
  •   High Watts-age It will take more than a little makeup and soft camera filters to convince me Naomi Watts resembles Marilyn Monroe in any way, shape or form. But someone thinks it will work.
  •  Gidget Rides Again Look for sporty surf girl Gidget to return to film and TV for the first time since the mid-'80s, no doubt to star a tween from the ABC Family channel or Miley Cyrus's little sister. What's next, the Flying Nun?
  •  Knight Errant The latest actor to tilt at windmills with director Terry Gilliam is Ewan McGregor, who along with Robert Duvall has signed on to Gilliam’s long-suffering in-the-works project The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. He takes on the role originally planned for Johnny Depp, which may or may not still be a 21st century ad exec who time-travels to the 16th century.
  •  “It’s Not You, It’s Me” After managing to be both outspoken and diplomatic last week admitting that Transformers 2 was crap, Shia LaBeouf does it again by blaming himself for Indiana Jones 4’s suckage. Because it wasn’t George Lucas’s script involving crystallized aliens and buried spaceships, oh no.
  •  Best. Agent. Ever. Get ready for Sam Worthington to ruin yet another potential movie franchise starring as adventurer Allan Quatermain in a sci-fi (?) version of King Solomon’s Mines. Well, nothing could be worse than Sean Connery’s portrayal of the guy.
