I love the concept of the upcoming HBO show, The Leftovers. It focuses on what might happen if a Rapture-like event occurred and several million people suddenly, and without explanation, disappeared from the planet. Here is the trailer...
What I like most about the plot is that it's not known what really happened. So religious people assume it was the Rapture and many of the most devout are left wondering why they didn't get taken. The rest of the world has to figure out how to carry on (or whether they even want to) without their missing loved ones, not knowing whether they are still alive somewhere or gone for good.
This should be very interesting...can't wait!
The Leftovers premieres on HBO June 15th.

Well, looks who's replacing David Letterman next year…
A week after David Letterman announced his retirement, CBS has named his successor. Stephen Colbert has inked a five-year deal to take over Late Show, a move that is effective as soon as Letterman officially steps aside from the late-night show he has headlined since its launch on CBS in 1993.
Colbert is host of Comedy Central’s faux-news show The Colbert Report, which airs at the same time as Late Show, 11:30 PM. Colbert had been on the radar of top CBS brass for awhile and was said to be a top choice of CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves.
I think that Stephen Colbert is probably the best choice they could have made. He's got a similar sense of humor and snark.
I'm still gonna miss Dave.

Very cool new cover of Rolling Stone featuring the Veep's Julia Louis Dreyfus.
That tattoo of the Constitution on her back had to hurt.
What's up with the two dents above her crack? You'd think they would Photoshop those out or, at the very least, BeDazzle them…weird.
Also, if you haven't watched Veep on HBO…you should.
She's a riot.

Another Hollywood legend has passed away…
Mickey Rooney, whose roller-coaster, nine-decade career in show business included vaudeville, silent films, movies, television and Broadway, died Sunday. He was 93.
Rooney's career spanned almost the entire history of motion pictures. He made his first film, the silent "Not to Be Trusted," in 1926 and followed it up with several shorts based on the "Mickey McGuire" comic strip. He was still making movies nine decades later, including "Night at the Museum" (2006) and "The Muppets" (2011).
Rooney had just completed his last movie role in the next installment of "Night at the Museum" with Ben Stiller.
He lived an amazing life and had a very long career that he loved. You can't ask for more than that in life.
He will be missed.

That certainly changes the dynamic of the film…
And I thought that movie couldn't get any better.
And, if you haven't already seen it…this Avengers: Honest Trailer is hilarious.
