I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

A terrified-looking local 2-year-old has become something of an Internet sensation over the past week. In a funny photo with a cute story-turned-viral image, Quincy Kroner posed with two friendly looking garbage men in front of their truck (as he held his own mini garbage truck toy).   Pictured: Internet gold. Dad and Northside resident Ollie Kroner, who’s no stranger to CityBeat, posted the photo on Facebook, saying, “Quincy's been waiting all week to show the garbage men his garbage truck. But, in the moment, he was overwhelmed in the presence of his heroes.” The photo was shared by friends and family, then their friends and so on until the image appeared prominently on Tumblr, Imgur, Awkward Family Photos, Huffington Post and ABC News.Despite the sudden fame, Quincy continues to live a low-profile, tiny human life. Read more here. (Worth noting is the writer’s choice to drive home the point that “it started with a sticker chart” and to include the comment "Garbage men get swole as hell and are generally the greatest people around.") Stock footage provider Dissolve created a “faux” TV trailer using only stock video, and it appears only slightly more generic that a CBS fall lineup. Just in time for Mad Men’s final season premiere, AMC paid tribute to the show with a bench resembling the Don Draper silhouette logo that has become so iconic. The bench — which I really need them to mass-produce — was unveiled in front of the Time-Life building, which Sterling Cooper & Partners has called home in Mad Men universe since Season Four. Jon Hamm was profiled in GQ’s April issue, and the show’s leading man shared some advice given to him from a guy who knows what it’s like to portray an iconic TV character and then, suddenly, not — Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston. "It's hard, man," Cranston told him. "It's hard to let it go. It'll hit you a couple of different ways at different times." But before you get depressed thinking about all of Mad Men joining Walter White and the other characters in the big TV set in the sky, there’s still a whole (OK, half) season of Mad Men to obsess and drink over, starting April 5. Serena Williams made her own 7/11 video a la Beyoncé. Almost as good as the original and how cute is it when she stops dancing to let that old man walk by? Definitely needed more azz, though. Goodbye Zuckerberg, hello Luthor! Jesse Eisenberg lost his curly locks to embody his upcoming role as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Check out his TRANSFORMATION (he just shaved his head) here.The cast of Pretty Woman the movie’s 25th anniversary with a reunion on the Today Show. While it has been quite a few years since the last good hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold movie, don’t count on a sequel. They say there will never be a Pretty Woman 2. At least some things are sacred. With that being said, of course there’s new remake news this week. Fox announced that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will return as Mulder and Scully in the network’s limited-series reboot of The X-Files. The John Candy classic Uncle Buck is also getting a TV remake. Mike Epps and Nia Long are set to star in the ABC comedy. (This isn’t the first time Uncle Buck is getting the TV treatment — there was a short-lived series of the same name in 1990). Until then, go downtown and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face. Some movies are getting turned into TV shows while some television series are getting reworked for the big screen. Finally, the Entourage movie trailer is here. Who doesn’t love a good conspiracy theory? Reddit user Euchrid_Eucrow posted an in-depth analysis on the Barenaked Ladies song “One Week” (yes, you’re reading all of this correctly) in the Fan Theories subreddit. S/He argues that that song — an upbeat Pop-Rock earworm full of random bits of early-Millennium pop culture — is about a man who killed his girlfriend and is slowly going mad as he stays in a room with the corpse. Internet! Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker throwing fifty shades of shade at Tom Hanks at a hockey game. Forget Resting Bitchface — Carrie Bradshaw’s got a very active bitchface.

I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

FX biker drama Sons of Anarchy will embark in its final ride this fall, after a game-changing penultimate season. The show has featured a few guest stars from the music world, including Henry Rollins and Dave Navarro. Next on that list is a surprising name — Marilyn Manson. Manson will play a recurring role in the final season: Ron Tully, a white supremacist behind bars who could prove to be a useful player for Jax. Hello, nightmares! It turns out Manson is far from the heartless characters he portrays on stage or screen — he reportedly picked up the role as a tribute to his dad, who is a big fan of the show. “Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” he told Variety. “So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship.” Aww, Marilyn! Marilyn Manson is not, for the record, Paul from The Wonder Years. We now know this as fact because the cast of the family classic recently reunited to promote a Wonder Years DVD set coming soon. We all know Winnie (Danica McKellar) went on to become a super hot mega genius and Kevin (Fred Savage) is still involved with show business (he's been a director and producer on Always Sunny and lots of other comedies), but what ever happened to Paul? As you can see, grown-up Paul (Josh Saviano) looks nothing like Manson today. But I guess we never have seen them in the same place at the same time… While we’re taking a walk down memory lane, O-Town is the latest early-‘00s boy band to reunite, though at least 15 women will be upset to discover Ashley Parker Angel, “The Cute One,” is no longer a part of the band. If you recall, the band was formed as part of 2000's Making the Band, a show that acknowledged the inauthentic, assembly-line nature of manufacturing boy bands while also...manufacturing a boy band. O-Town was assembled by Lou Pearlman, the manager behind the Backstreet Boys, *NSync, LFO, Aaron Carter and other Pop acts of the 1990s and early 2000s.Fun Fact: Pearlman was sued by every band/performer he worked with except one, and is now serving a 25-year sentence for charges of conspiracy, money laundering and making false statements during a bankruptcy proceeding. Great job! Tennis star Serena Williams “crashed” a wedding last week, because I guess being asked to take a photo with a bride and groom constitutes wedding crashing. It would be a fun memory to run into a celeb on your big day, but I don’t know if I’d really want my new spouse to get an eyeful of this right after committing eternally to me. Oh well, you know what they say: If you choose to get married on a public beach, you just might get crashed by a bangin' pro tennis player in animal print. (Also: Are leotards the new swimsuits?) The Bottle Boys are a Danish performance group that use bottles in various ways to play songs. Their latest cover, of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” is going viral. Check it out. The crew has competed on Britain’s Got Talent using beer bottles, water jugs and other containers to recreate popular songs. Two badass babes have signed on to the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII. Lupita N’yongo — Academy Award-winning actress from 12 Years a Slave and People’s “Most Beautiful” person of the year — and Gwendoline Christie — better known as Brienne of Tarth from Game of Thrones — are both slated to star in the latest Star Wars chapter, along with 600 other amazing actors. Also in movie news: From Edward to Indy? Robert Pattinson will likely take the role of Indiana Jokes for the next reboot. Now, here’s Chance The Rapper performing the theme song to my favorite educational cartoon, Arthur, at Sasquatch! Music Festival:(Thanks for the tip, Brooke!)
 
 

W&S Open is (Almost) as Big as Tennis Gets

As he sat at a podium in Mason, Andy Murray wasn’t quite sure where his gold medal was. Murray, a week removed from winning the Olympic gold medal for singles in men’s tennis, was in Cincinnati while his prize was far away.
