It's important to remind everyone that Ricki Lander's audition for The Internship did not require a bikini, nor playing off a 71-year-old man, but she thought it would better her chances to include both.

Your Unwarranted Kevin Costner Update

You can always tell how Kevin Costner's career is going by how much he remembers he "loves the beautiful game of baseball." When he was stalling in the late '90s, he tried to recapture the Bull Durham-Field Of Dreams magic with For The Love Of The Game, a movie so dull and torpid that you'd never believe it was… » 8/03/06 1:15pm 8/03/06 1:15pm

Scrappy Podsednik Upgrading In Lady Department

We've always liked Chicago White Sox outfielder Scott Podsednik.
