Think Evan Rachel Wood’s roles in Marilyn Manson music videos are fun? Wait’ll you see her with Lily Cole and Tilda Swinton! The three will star in Manson’s bone-chilling cinematic counterpart to the story, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll. A tamer retelling of the PG material will be Hatter, another upcoming film based on the Mad Hatter series, featuring Alan Cumming and Rebecca Romijn.
ON THE MARC
Marc Jacobs can’t stop exposing himself! Showing off his new look isn’t enough for the designer; he now wants to put his whole life on display. Following a cameo on MTV’s The Hills, Jacobs announced he wants his own reality show, saying it would focus on: “Everything, all aspects of my life. All the drama, the intrigue, the sex, the romance, the work. I'm a shameless human being.” Any takers?
Staying true to her MySpace roots, Lily Allen's very own variety show on BBC, Lily Allen and Friends, will whittle down the singer's near 500,000 virtual friends to be audience members during live tapings. The lucky few will also get the chance to pick unsigned bands to perform on the show!
Following in the footsteps of Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, Lindsay Lohan will tackle the small screen on the ABC’s Ugly Betty. But unlike Posh who made a cameo on the show, Lohan will be playing the role of beauty queen-turned-assistant manager of the fast food chain where Betty works.
We’ve come to expect, well, the unexpected from Winona Ryder, who is now set to star in JJ Abrams’ 2008 Star Trek XI movie. She will be play the wife of Vulcan diplomat Sarek. We have no idea what that means either…
