Once again, it’s time for the News Roundup, in which we gather all the little news items we don’t care enough about to actually flesh out in a full post (just kidding, little news nuggets, we love you, too—and we’re sorry we told you that we loved our movie reviews and news posts more, we just had a lot to drink that night and work’s been really rough, lately). From new buzz about Mortal Kombat to Untitled Religious Drama to whatever the hell is happening over at NBC, here’s today’s news in brief:
- The Hollywood Reporter digs on Katie Couric and Matt Lauer joining together on the The Today Show to giggle about having NBC by the you-know-whats.
- Want to write the punchline to the darkest pop culture joke ever told? Swing by Unreality Mag.
- Then, if you want to read what should be an unfunny joke but is apparently completely serious, check out Unreality’s mind-boggling list of best cartoon sidekicks ever. No Milhouse? C’mon!
- After that, relax yourself by owning a piece of pop culture in the classiest way possible, courtesy of KULT Studio.
- Seriously—Mortal Kombat got an online series?
- Looks like Joaquin Phoenix is going to continue to court to controversy, as he’s reportedly in talks to star in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘I-Promise-This-Isn’t-About-Scientology-(But-It’s-Really-About-Scientology)’ film, Untitled Religious Drama.
