On my way back ...

... Eventually. Expect new posts here sometime this month. Sorry for the vagueness, but hey. It's been two years. Let me dust some cobwebs off.

An excuse to talk about Jon Hamm's face.

I love the red carpet. I love people's expressions. I love their clothes. I love their awkwardness. And since I'm still smarting over the commercial and critical disappointment that was "Sucker Punch" and I'm looking for places to live for grad school in the fall and studio apartments START AT $1,600 A MONTH, I really need something to amuse me. So here we go.

1. David Hasselhoff at the premiere of "Hop" in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Wow, just wow. Such commitment to looking like a creeper has to be applauded, and Hasselhoff is pulling it off beautifully here. Those little baby birds don't even KNOW that they're about to be serenaded by him singing pop songs at them. IT WILL HAPPEN.

2. Jonah Hill at the premiere of "Ceremony" in Los Angeles on March 22.

Word on the street is Hill is losing weight to star in the upcoming adaptation of "21 Jump Street," which should come out in 2012, and while I commend his 30-pound slim-down so far, I ALSO think his weight loss further accentuates his super-awkward body. His legs are so thin! But he still has a double chin! I don't get it, it's weird, DISLIKE. Get back to me when you lose enough weight to look like a real person, like Seth Rogen did (before he started gaining it back again).

3. Tom Felton at the Empire Awards, sponsored by Jameson, in London on Sunday.

What did Tom Felton win an award for? I don't care. Is he holding a bottle of Jameson? YES. Which automatically means I respect him more than ever before, and that sneering grin is doing it for me. I love you Draco Malfoy, you dickish Death Eater bitch.

4. Chloe Moretz at the first Annual Comedy Awards in New York City on Saturday.

Chloe Moretz is 14, and here she's dressed like she's 14, which is nice. But my boyfriend assures me she's just growing up to be super-hot, and I can't really argue with him here. I mean, that smirk? That's the smirk of soon-to-be hot and flirty teens EVERYWHERE. That's the smirk that once graced the faces of girls like Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan. Is Chloe Moretz a way better actress/person/anything than Miley and Lilo? Yes, but ... she will be super-hot. So hot.

5. Jon Hamm at the premiere of "Sucker Punch" in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Ignore the fact that longtime girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt is on his arm and just LOOK AT JON HAMM. LOOK AT HIM. I've never seen a scruffy neck beard and shiny suit look so good.

Movie news that pleases me.

I saw "Sucker Punch" last week and I guess I was the only person in the world who liked it, as it currently holds a 20 percent rating on RottenTomatoes. I mean, holy crap that's bad. That's the same rating as "Beastly"! That's just offensive to "Sucker Punch." The only thing linking the two movies is Vanessa Hudgens, so I'm going to blame her.

But yeah, these news items are keeping me happy in light of the commercial failure that is "Sucker Punch."

1. Armie Hammer, who played the Winklevoss twins in "The Social Network" and whose name always makes me giggle because it sounds like Arm & Hammer, will star as Prince Andrew Alcott in "The Brothers Grimm: Snow White," one of the upcoming adaptations of "Snow White." Director Tarsem Singh has already cast Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen. There's another "Snow White" adaptation being planned, with Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Viggo Mortensen.

+ EDIT: Sike! Viggo is no longer going to be in "Snow White and the Huntsman," which pleases me, because APPARENTLY he's in talks to play the villain in the "Superman" movie Amy Adams has been cast in. I'm going to go ahead and say I'm psychic for linking these two pieces of news together in the same post without even knowing their connection at first! You're welcome. Anyway, have these pictures of Hammer and Mortensen anyway.

If there could somehow be a "Snow White" adaptation with both Hammer and Mortensen in one movie, I would be super pumped, since Hammer looks like this ...

... and Mortensen looks like this ...

But alas, it cannot be. I would probably see Singh's version, because I can't stand Kristen Stewart, but I also can't stand Julia Roberts, so this will definitely be a balancing act for my hatred. I hate most female actresses, big surprise!

2. Amy Adams will be Lois Lane in the upcoming "Superman" adaptation, which Zack Snyder - who created the sadly under-performing "Sucker Punch" - will direct. I'm totally OK with this idea, since Kate Bosworth was such a poor Lois Lane in 2006's "Superman Returns," and since Adams kicked so much ass in "The Fighter." Literally, when she punched Micky's sisters in the face, I couldn't be happier.

Who wouldn't punch those shrill harpy bitches? Honestly.

3. Lastly, I'm not necessarily excited by this, but definitely intrigued: Mila Kunis has been cast as the Wicked Witch of the West in the film adaptation of "Oz: The Great and Powerful," which will also star James Franco. They played a drug-happy couple in 2010's "Date Night," which also starred Franco's amazing facial hair.

Sam Raimi (who did "The Evil Dead" and the "Spider-Man" trilogy with Tobey Maguire) is directing "Oz," which could be awesome, and the prequel will take a look at the land from the Wizard's point of view, chronicling how he came to power, as we all saw in "The Wizard of Oz." Franco is pretty slimy and sleazy at times, so I can definitely see him doing well with the role - and Kunis is hot. The end.

Dumb shit I would buy if my wallet didn't already hate me, part 2.

It may be raining outside, but I'm too lazy to go outside and check. It snowed this morning here in the Washington, D.C., suburbs, and I would like to go on record as saying, fuck that shit. I like snow and everything, but not when it's late March and April is right around the corner and at any point it should be sunny and delightful, not moody and gloomy and snowy.

Plus, when it gets charming and warm, I can wear things like this.

HA! Did you see that price tag? Yeah, I wish I could afford such crap. Unfortunately $450 is a shitton of money that I would immediately use to pay my heat and Verizon bills, not that I would feel good dropping on only one pair of shoes. No matter how weirdly curved they are. Or how wonderfully coral. Or strappy. I LOVE UNNECESSARY STRAPS ON THINGS.

Am I drying my tears? Obviously.
