It was the shock heard round the basements of men still living with their parents and people of a certain age. Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4 billion and some change. What does that mean for you and me? Along with seeing Darth Vader and Princess Leia walking around in costume at Disneyland taking pictures with visitors, another trilogy of Star Wars film is promised with the first debuting in 2015, according to the HuffPo. So, now I get on my soapbox and make a personal appeal to Disney: Jar Jar Binks - bad. New Star Wars themed rides at Disneyland - good. Star Wars holiday specials - bad (See this if you need proof.). Although have you ever wondered why Star Tours is in Tomorrowland when it happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away?

Big Star in a Big Ad: Since Call of Duty is a HUGELY popular, of course you get the likes of director Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels) to direct your ad for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. And of course you get a big name actor like Robert Downey Jr. to star in said ad. Speaking of Ritchie, he's going to doing a remake of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
Sure, She's An infant, But... Kelsey Grammer may not be getting a father of the year award anytime soon. He decided to take his 3-month-old daughter with him to the Playboy mansion, according to TMZ. His wife was with him as well. THey were celebrating at a Halloween party because the family that parties together at the Playboy mansion, stays together I guess.
