- On the Doctor’s fame: “We’re going to explore that properly next series. The Doctor’s project is to sort of erase himself from history because there’s only so many times you can stand and boast at Stonehenge”
- On the heavier story arc: “I don’t think Doctor Who will ever be as arc-driven again”
Due to the increased interest from the title ‘Let’s Kill Hitler’, Moffat has told the writers to really “slut it up” and “write it like a movie poster. Let’s do big, huge, mad ideas”
- On Amy, Rory and River: “I do have an end game for all of them”
- On River: “You realise you’ve learned nothing. She may or may not be married to the Doctor, depending on whether that was actually a marriage ceremony, or whether it counts if he’s inside a giant robot replica of himself”
- On his future as showrunner: “Even though I’m more tired than I’ve ever been, I don’t feel any impulse to leave”
- On the first two episodes: “Steven told me the pitch for episodes 1 and 2 and it’s so brilliant. I got really excited. It’s got lots of things I like. There are some extraordinary times ahead”
- On his 2012 and beyond: “I get to go into the 50th anniversary which is really cool. That’s incredibly exciting”
- On the Series 7 break: “It’s a risk, I guess. But a good one”
- Karen says she is very happy about her role in Series 7 but adds: “When I leave properly, that’s it. I don’t want Amy to pop up again every so often, because for me it would take away from the big, emotional goodbye. I’m definite on that”
- On whether Amy could be killed off: “I think it could be done, if you tackled it right. Not that I wouldn’t love to pop back every so often. But just in terms of how it’s remembered…once she’s gone, she’s gone. So death could be an option”

So if you haven't heard, William Shatner said some shit about Star Wars and my baby momma Carrie Fisher said something back in an interview. Shatner posted another vid and implied Carrie needs a tit lift.
Flawless human being George Takei has made this video to end the feud, suggesting Star fans of all kinds band together against the menace that is TWILIGHT:
What does ONTD think?
I met Carrie Fisher at Dragoncon! She was the best. I told her I was bipolar as well and she gave me a huge hug and told me I'd be okay. Then at her panel, I asked for her name card and she said "you wanted to marry me right? Sure!" and when I came to get the thing, she said "this officiates our marriage" and KISSED ME ON THE LIPS. She is so sweet and down to earth!!!

Chad Linus Noah Bastian sat down with Salt Lake City's Fox station for an interview -- here is the video/text of it!
SALT LAKE CITY—
"It doesn't really seem like my life anymore. I look back and think wow that's crazy!" Noah Bastian said.
As a teenager, Noah had a small role in "Johnny Tsunami," a film shot in Utah. An agent spotted Noah's potential and encouraged him to move to Los Angeles to seek more work.

He followed her advice and, within a week of arriving, he'd landed a guest role on "The Young and the Restless." But an even bigger "break" was in store.
"A matter of two weeks I went from working in a hotel to being a fake pop icon to these kids," he said.
MTV cast Noah as "Chad Linus" in a boy band called 2ge+her. The group was custom-created for a feature length film to parody popular acts of the day like NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.
Noah and the other members were catapulted into fame--or something like it--almost overnight.
Noah recalls that when filming began, "they were blasting our faces on the Jumbotron in Times Square, and hired a thousand girls to stand and hold signs saying, 'We love you!'"
The film premiered on MTV, and successful ratings prompted plans for an ongoing series. The marketing included two albums which made showings on Billboard charts. In spite of tongue-in-cheek lyrics and song titles such as "The Hardest Part of Breaking Up Is Getting Back Your Stuff," and "You Plus Me Equals Calculus," many of MTV's young fans embraced the group.
"You didn't know a lot about boy bands then. You saw Justin (Timberlake) on stage but you didn't get to go behind the scenes and talk to them, and that's what fans felt like they were doing with the show," Noah said.
2ge+her even opened several shows for Britney Spears. "When Britney came to Times Square it looked like the president was coming. So we got to be a part of that," Noah recalls.
But the good times ended as quickly as they began, when together's youngest member Michael Cuccione died unexpectedly. Micheal had been successfully treated for Hodgkin's Disease when a car accident sent him back to a hospital. Unforeseen complications took his life.
"MTV decided, along with us, that the show needed to end," Noah said.
In the decade since, Noah has landed rolls in small films such as "Ice Spiders" and "The Adventures of Food Boy." When asked what he's been up to he responded "Not a lot," before breaking into a hearty laugh.
Between acting gigs, he waits tables in a Tapas restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City.
"As an actor one of your most important skills to know is how to carry a tray, because you'll be doing that a lot," he said.
Noah says his days in 2ge+her were incredibly fun, but also says he wasn't prepared to handle Hollywood at age nineteen. He admits to making some professional missteps and says the "down time" he's gotten in Utah has treated him well.
But the rest may be coming to an end. A recent Facebook post by fellow former band members Alex Solowitz and Kevin Farley asked if fans might be interested in a 2ge+her reunion. The answer; a resounding yes.
In the past month a social media campaign for a 2ge+her reunion has caught the attention of TMZ, Perez Hilton and MTV.com.
"I swear this has to be the first time fans have taken something that was so dead and brought it back to life," Noah said.
In the past weeks, he's been in contact with the other members of the band. He says there are several ideas on the table, but nothing yet set in stone.
"I've learned the hard way that with Hollywood you dont get your hopes up for anything," he said.

Karen Gillan has said she will welcome the next Doctor Who companion “with open arms” when her time is up on the show.
Speaking on Graham Norton’s Radio 2 show yesterday, she said: “I know the time is going to come when Rory and Amy have to leave. It’s inevitable and that will make me really, really sad. But that’s the nature of the show and what’s so good about it. What keeps it exciting is the fact that it’s reinvented all the time with new people. I think that’s a really great part of the show, so I will welcome the new companion with open arms.
“I don’t know what type of companion [the Doctor] would have next.”
Gillan also said her future was still “up in the air,” adding “I know that I’m going to be coming back, but I’m not sure when.”
You can listen to the whole interview in the player below.
The recently released 2012 edition of Doctor Who’s Brilliant Book may not contain any teasers like last year but it does have some interesting interviews with Steven Moffat, Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. They offer some hints on what’s ahead for the show.
Here’s some highlights.

A battle with every existing Megazord. i came.
Remember this post about all the existing Power Rangers fighting together in the new super sentai series? Well, i guess it's coming to an end so obviously they had to finish it with a fight with all the Megazords.
It starts around 3.30 and i guess what the show is trying to say is save all your old toys cause you never know when a giant alien spider might attack the earth.

The One Where: Zombie cheerleaders terrorise the community centre.
Verdict: It’s hackneyed hyperbole in TV land to describe a show as like watching a mini movie every week, but in the case of Misfits series three’s penultimate episode that description is entirely justified. Not just because of the grainy, washed out cinematography or the kinetic handheld camerawork – they’ve been part of the show’s signature style from the very beginning – but also because of the slow build structure of the story which teases and teases before erupting into a shower of blood and miniskirts.
As a result, for a zombie episode there’s surprisingly little actual zombie mayhem – but that’s what makes it work so well. Their fleeting appearances are used to punctuate moments of dramatic tension, provide comic relief (the sight of Mr Miggles lapping up blood from the gaping a hole in Maggie’s cheek is about as black as comedy gets) or offer up the grisly thrill of seeing a dead head’s melon caved in by the business end of a baseball bat. Repeatedly. As you might expect, Misfits’ zombies are also used in an entirely unexpected way – providing a tragic coda to Seth’s relationship with Shannon. One scene where he stands over her, hammer in hand, as she “sleeps” and he struggles with his colossal mistake is a smart moment of visual storytelling.
In lieu of a through line as clear as series two’s Superhoodie arc, several of this series’ running plotlines culminate in satisfying fashion this week. As well as the Thamesmead Avengers solving a problem together for what feels like the first time in ages, it also feels like the most balanced episode of the series – every character gets their moment to shine, but none more so than Rudy who’s bizarre explanation about why he hates f***ing cheerleaders is fabulously wrong.
Cornetto Watch: After last episode’s grievous oversight, the Cornetto returns with a vengeance this week, playing a crucial role in the scene where the gang visit Maggie’s. Maybe they got it all wrong and Maggie wasn’t jonesing for Rudy’s grey matter at all, some people are just crazy for Cornettos.
LMAO: Rudy’s ludicrous sledgehammer is a standout moment, but the award for funniest moment of the week (aka The Award For Rudy’s Best Moment) goes to his reaction after drawing the long straw. Talk about a sore winner.
Behind The Scenes: Regular readers of SFX might recognise this week’s episode as the one we reported from for our season three feature in issue 215. Here are some fun facts from the day: the shot where the stunt double dives out of the tiny window in the door took four takes (Gilgun missed his mark, the cue came to early and a light went out mid-take), the actress who Rudy hits in the face with a baseball bat (Iskra Lawrence) had a leg injury but carried on like a trooper and Gilgun thought the storyboards for this episode made him look like Tintin (or “That retard with the slanty eyes”).
Death sentence: Forget ice road trucking or crocodile wrestling, in the Misfits-verse “probation worker” is clearly the most dangerous profession in the world. And the gang know it too. Self referencing jokes are fine, but Misfits is getting very close to becoming too arch and knowing. How long can it possibly be before they’re all hauled away?
Simon: “He wants blood”
Rudy: “Lets get him a mouse and let him chow down on that little fucker.”
Simon: “And then we’d have a zombie mouse as well.”
Rudy: “This is just getting like a… zombie Noah’s Arc.”

Though Mariah Carey was thrilled to learn she was pregnant with twins last year, the pop diva (who's married to Nick Cannon) wasn't quite as happy about the 70 pounds she gained during pregnancy. (12/12/10) Six months after giving birth to babies Moroccan and Monroe, 41-year-old Mariah became a spokesperson for the Jenny Craig weight-loss program, which she credits with helping her lose her last 30 pounds. (Those first 40, she says, was just water weight.) "I feel better in every way," Mariah told USA Today in November. "To me, it's mind, body and soul. I was in a bad place physically during my pregnancy."
The 21-year-old hasn't revealed how much weight she's lost, but did tell Shape how she did it: "I started slowly by walking the path around my house, and then eventually walking a little bit faster, and then actually going and climbing up the mountain [near my home]. So it was literally a mountain to climb, but I did that." She also began working with a personal trainer, taking Zumba classes with her mom, and making small changes to her diet.
The comedian's wake-up call came when he realized he could no longer keep up with his fiance's 5-year-old son. Drew began a physician-supervised fitness and nutrition program and was restricted to lean protein, lots of vegetables, limited fruit, few starches, vitamins and nutritional supplements, and at least 64 ounces of water a day, which helped him lose more than 75 pounds. "This is how you're supposed to feel every day," he told Parade. "This is what I should have felt like my whole life!"
Thanks to her stint on Season 13 of "Dancing With the Stars," this past fall, during which she made it to the final 3, the 43-year-old says she's lost 16 inches and four dress sizes and is now a svelte size 4. But can she stay stay that way?
The 5'8" actress became a Jenny Craig spokesperson at the end of 2009 and went on to lose more than 50 pounds in 12 months. This year, she donned a bikini for the first time ever in a national TV commercial for the weight-loss program. Talk about newfound confidence!
Alley credits her time on "Dancing With the Stars" earlier this year with helping her slim down, thanks to its rigorous rehearsals. "My dress is half the size it was when we started," the 60-year-old said on the season finale in May.
The "Zookeeper" star told David Letterman in January that the scale was his simple wake-up call. "I got on the scale and it read 290 pounds," he admitted. "Then I realized, I'm only ten pounds away from 300!" After breaking the 300-pound mark, he made some lifestyle changes and lost more than 40 pounds.
But when he landed the lead role in "The Green Hornet," Seth knew he had to slim down. Seth worked out with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak and eventually shed 30 pounds.
In late 2009, Kelly signed on to participate in "Dancing With the Stars" and told Shape she credits her dance partner, Louis van Amstel, with teaching her about healthy eating. The 5'2" 26-year-old now uses a personal trainer, does plyometrics, and simply stops eating when she's full, which has helped her maintain her new 112-pound body.
After joining the Weight Watchers program in 2010 and becoming a spokesperson for the company, the 29-year-old shed a whopping 50 pounds and is now down to a size 6. "I don't really like to count pounds," she said on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" earlier this year. "I look at it by age. I feel like I gained 10 years of my life back."
The 32-year-old actor reportedly slimmed down by hiking and trading burgers and fries for tofu and veggies.
The 55-year-old appeared on the "Today" show to flaunt her slimmer figure and announced she had lost 50 pounds in nine months .When asked by Ann Curry what motivated her to finally lose the weight, Fisher cracked, "The spark was that I weighed 3 million pounds." That and the fact she'd "exhausted the alphabet on bra sizes."
The 6'2" actor has now lost a whopping 200 pounds! He no longer drinks alcohol and exercises regularly.
For Louis C.K., controversy is comedic gold.
In an interview with “Nightline” anchor Bill Weir, the crass comedian talked about his family, why he chose to launch his upcoming stand-up special himself and when jokes can incite controversy, such as when Tracy Morgan was chastised for making homophobic comments this summer.
During a Nashville stand-up appearance in June, Morgan told a joke in which he said if his son talked to him in an effeminate voice, he would “stab that little (n word) in the throat.” The statement later sparked enormous public outrage and Morgan publicly apologized several times, making it clear that there was no excuse for his comments.
C.K. took to Morgan’s defense, saying at the time that he was “on a comedy stage, not a pulpit.” In a recent “Nightline” interview, C.K. told Weir that he thought the gay community missed a prime chance to have a discussion with Morgan, versus just attacking him for his comments.
“To me that joke is Tracy trying to figure it out, ‘my sons gay now, ok, but he better not talk like that cause I can’t...I don’t know how to deal with it,’” C.K. told Weir. “He’s afraid of it or he’s confused by it and then he blasts through the whole idea with a joke. That’s what jokes are. You don’t tiptoe through the idea, you just go ‘I would stab that little (n word) in the throat,’ and that brings everybody a huge relief in a very scary place and makes them laugh.”
Video can be viewed here if it doesn't load properly
“I think the opportunity that was lost was for the gay community to ask Tracy, ‘why did you say that’ and ‘what was your dad like’ and ‘what is being a man mean to you,’ you know what I mean? It could have been a starting point of a conversation that might have actually made a difference in how people feel about homophobia.”
Tune into “Nightline” on Monday, Dec. 12 to watch Bill Weir’s full interview with Louis C.K.
SO beautiful and also flaw-free.

J Lo selling all jewelry given to her by Marc Anthony
Forget about the fat lady singing -- you know it's over when you sell the jewels.
That's what Jennifer Lopez is doing as she marks the official end (in our minds, anyway) to her marriage to Marc Anthony.
Based on a "source" close to the pop star, the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Lopez is getting rid of clothes, gifts and the real kicker: the bling. Writes the paper, "J. Lo also reportedly is quietly selling all the jewelry Anthony gave her -- and he gave her quite a lot." No kidding.
See, this is Jennifer's "thing": when she's done with something, the source says, she needs to be rid of it. Completely. No remaining baubles, no sparkly accessories to remind her of the bad times.
Says the "source," "When Jennifer moves on, she totally moves on," as her current beau, backup dancer Casper Smart, will figure out -- he "will likely discover he will 'disappear' when she tires of him too." Ouch.
She already proved this once, selling back her giant, $1.2 million Harry Winston engagement ring from Ben Affleck after the two split in 2004.
Strong female, always making her bank account bigger. How do you get over an ex, ONTD?
Courtney Stodden has been a lightning rod of controversy since she, as a 16-year-old, married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. And that marked just the beginning of the outcry over the teen.
In October she drew complaints after dressing too provocatively while at a pumpkin patch in Los Angeles. Photos showed Stodden wearing knee-high stilettos, Daisy Dukes and a barely-there shirt. A month later, she went on "Dr. Drew's Life Changers" in an attempt to prove that she's not had any sort of "modifications." And then there are the highly-suggestive Twitter posts from the aspiring reality star/singer/model with musings like "Squeezing my snowballs inside of a seasonal sexy little lingerie as I begin to swing around the Christmas tree to hot rock 'n roll hits! XOs"
Zap2it caught up with the now 17-year-old Courtney to ask her everything you wanted to know -- like her daily routine, her first kiss and what super power she'd like to have. Here's what she had to say...
Tell us one thing the general public doesn't know about you:
The general public doesn't know that I am a total vegetarian. I believe in the rights of animals & respecting them. They are angelic creatures and deserve to be treated so.
Describe your daily routine:
I live like a princess! In the mornings, I get out of bed - of course wearing some sexy little lingerie & a fluffy pair of 7-inch stiletto slippers - and hop into the kitchen to where I munch on a bowl of cereal and whip myself up a morning mocha beverage. I then step into the steaming shower to get prepared for the day that is to come. In the evenings, I love to just wind down by locking myself up inside, popping in a classic movie and cuddling up with my beautiful family.
Who was your first kiss? Was it any good?
It probably wasn't considered 'a good one' for my 1st grade classmate. It was the kind of relationship where the boy absolutely loved the girl...but the girl...the girl thought he had major cooties! One day at school, this boy finally got up the courage to run up to me & try to sneak me a smooch for his own satisfaction...but what he didn't see coming was a slap to the face! I immediately reacted and hit him as hard as I could across his face as he fell to the ground and realized that his offering was completely rejected - but that didn't stop him from loving me - and his kiss didn't stop me from thinking he had cooties.
What super power would you like to have?
I would find it breathtaking to be able to feel what it's like to fly... Wait. I'm already flying - flying on the wings of love!
Movies that make you cry?
I always find tears flowing down my cheeks when I watch "Titanic."
Is there another celebrity you've always wanted to meet and haven't yet?
I'd love to meet Senator John McCain one day. What a cutie!
What is your favorite book?
What's a surprising activity you do in your free time?
I love taking invigorating hikes with my precious pink pooch Bazaar and my mother throughout the hills of Hollywood. Oh and did I mention that I do that in 7-inch stilettos?! ;)
What goes in your carry-on bag on the plane?
MORE clothes, shoes, clutches...things that I cannot fit inside of my huge suitcase! And, of course, some delicious rich chocolate in case of an emergency sweet tooth!
Who is your celebrity crush?
DOUG HUTCHISON! Yummy...
What do your friends make fun of you for?
For being a little too sexual at times...oops...meow.
What is your favorite song to sing in the car?
"Don't Put It On Me, Girl." It's surely catchy but a little bit of a challenge to keep up with. Give it a try! You'll see what I mean...
What clique did you belong to in high school?
The 'too sexy 'n hot for high school' clique. ;)

Shadow and Act
Patrick J. Adams’ dream came true this morning — quite literally. He was fast asleep in Los Angeles, in the wee hours of the morning, when he got sucked into a hazy vortex of cellphone vibrations. He awoke to six missed calls. One of them was from his manager, delivering the out-of-the-blue news: He’d scored a SAG nomination for best actor in a drama series for his role on USA Network’s “Suits.”
“To be honest, I didn’t even know this was happening today,” said the award newbie. “I thought something terrible had happened and picked up and found out quite the opposite. I’m just trying to wrap my head around it.”
Adams is admittedly overwhelmed by the sudden storm of attention. Not only is the Screen Actors Guild nod his first award nomination, he’s also never attended a red-carpet award ceremony, of any kind. “This is my first year for a lot of this stuff. This is all brand new to me. It’s been such a whirlwind of a year. I never, ever imagined it would get to this point. You don’t expect anything — it’s been all about learning, this year.”
Along those lines, he’s less intimidated and more inspired by the heavy-hitting contenders in his category, which include Steve Buscemi, Kyle Chandler, Bryan Cranston and Michael C. Hall. Over the years, he’s watched their careers closely and looked at all four actors as role models. “They’re all teachers, in a sense. I’ve watched how they work, week to week, and how they conduct themselves in their lives. These are just incredible men. So to be amongst them in this way— I haven’t processed it yet. It’s such an insane honor to walk among them. I’m speechless.”
"Suits" may not be quite as well known as "Dexter," "Boardwalk Empire," "Breaking Bad" and "Friday Night Lights," but Adams is hopeful that his nomination will boost the show's profile and draw new audiences. “The other [nominated actors’] shows are critically acclaimed shows that have changed the landscape of television. If we could get some of those people who follow shows that dare to be different, it just encourages our show to take more risks and to be brave and to continue to evolve in a way people don’t necessarily expect.”
Adams just wrapped up a play, “Nine Circles,” in Los Angeles and will soon show up as a recurring character on HBO’s “Luck,” which premieres in January. But he’d really like to begin exploring bigger film roles.
“I’ve done a lot of smaller indie films, but I’ve never been in a studio film environment. That’s another brave new world!”
Yay! Good for him. He deserves it. Can't wait for this show to come back.
