Brad Pitt to Star in True Detective: Yea or Nay?

When I caught word that Matthew McConaughey wouldn’t be returning for season two of True Detective, I have to admit, I panicked. However, considering the HBO show is an anthology and with each season the cast and theme changes, I should have been prepared to see McConaughey go. As for his replacement? It looks like the show might enlist the one and only Brad Pitt. But, to be honest, that’s not really easing my anguish. Or anyone else’s, it seems.

Lena Dunham Is About to Prove She’s Just “Not That Kind of Girl”

If you’re anything like me, it’s almost like Lena Dunham – a.k.a. Hannah Horvath – is speaking directly to you via her HBO original series, Girls. She can’t pay rent? You can’t pay rent.

Girls Star Zosia Mamet Lands Glamour Column

Okay, “lands” is a stretch. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this HBO actress skipped the rigid interview process. But I digress. The annoyingly adorable character you know as Shoshanna (or that girl who licked Peggy’s face in Mad Men) is writing a bimonthly column for Glamour titled “My Zo-Called Life.” And she gushed all about it on Chelsea Lately this week.

Fashionista quotes Mamet, “[My editor] will get e-mails from me at like 4:00 in the morning and I’ll be like, ‘I wanna write about the evolution of eyebrows.’” Who wouldn’t?

Fact is, Shosh could write about drywall and we would still skip lunch to read it.
