Did You Hear?
:: Comedian/actor/mankini swimsuit suspender thong model Sacha Baron Cohen has signed on to play Freddie Mercury in a big-screen biopic of the Queen frontman’s life. As Borat would say, “Very nice!” (And as Brüno would say… well, we probably can’t post anything Brüno would say.) [Vulture]
:: It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia‘s sixth season premiered last night on FX—celebrate the return of this hideous, horribly-behaved gang of chums by listening to the show’s soundtrack, which star Charlie Day describes as “huffing paint through your ears.” Dayman! Ah ah ah! [EW Music Mix]
:: Check out Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” single teaser and mourn the fact that at nine-years old you were probably just making lanyard bracelet after lanyard bracelet at camp while this fierce kid is dropping hit records. [Just Jared]
:: Weezer will embark on a Blinkerton tour—the band will play two shows in each market, and “on the first night Weezer will play The Blue Album in its entirety, and the second night they will play Pinkerton in its entirety.” We’re not sure why they don’t just play both albums on the same night to save fans the trouble of paying for tickets (and parking, and food, and babysitters, etc.) twice. Maybe they’ll make up for it by taking Jorge Garcia on the road with them. [Spinner]
