Courtney Love Discusses Casting For Kurt Cobain Biopic

Courtney Love At 'Grey Seminar' At the 2014 Cannes Lions

 

I know EXACTLY who Courtney is talking about when she told The Philippine Daily Enquirer that she’s been ruminating over whom she would like to see play her late husband Kurt Cobain in the upcoming biopic about the Nirvana frontman.

“Love and her team are apparently considering demo reels submitted by actors who want to play Cobain in a film, with hopes of beginning production “within the next year”. “[It] was really tough because these boys are so pretty, so cute,” she told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts … Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces.” “

I’ll just come right out with it: Charlie Hunnman. Why, you ask? Remember that Courtney has signed on to play a pre-school teacher on Sons of Anarchy next season? I’m pretty sure that has involved some sniffing around of Charlie on Courtney’s part. He might not be 25 years old, but surely he can play Kurt. Charlie does have the “young Brad Pitt” look about him, doesn’t he?

I’ll admit it it if I’m wrong…but this all seems to add up nicely, don’t you think?

Courtney Love is 50 Today, You People – By Guest Contributing Writer Mary, Behind the Red Curtain

I'mstillbreathing-courtney

Courtney Love, everyone’s nightmare wife, is turning 50 today, the same day I hear the news that Ryan Gosling, everyone’s perfect boyfriend*, will have a child with Eva Mendes. How God could fill my head with so much conflicting news in one day… Courtney, still thinking she can reclaim her title of Rock Queen/Queen Bitch, perennially down for the count, downed by drugs, drowned by alcohol, downed by narcissism and madness- forced to watch stupider, more reasonable women take the crown she wore on “Live Through This”.

Every year a rumored triumphant return, every year a let down. Meanwhile Ryan has found a women worthy of love and impregnation, a woman who will not be smoking, shooting up, and giving foul mouthed interviews to Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair while she has a child In Utero. No, an actress of some talent, Eva will be looking more and more like a blow-up Sophia Loren until her waist disappears and she has to wear sensible flats while Ryan adorably accompanies her to Lamaze class.

 

As a former punk fighting to age without displaying too much dignity, I root for Courtney every time she dusts herself off. As a proud grandmother, myself, I am happy there will be one more Love child and one less Son of Anarchy.

Now all the women sing along with us! One more…

And how ’bout an round of applause for our Gorgeous Mary…over there. Behind the David Lynchian red velvet curtain.

‘Seinfeld’ Turns 25

It’s been 25 years since the best show about nothing premiered on NBC on July 5 way back in 1989. To make you feel really old, I was only about 4 at the time, but it would be years later with the help of numerous reruns that I would come to appreciate it’s genius. Created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, the first season only featured 4 episodes, but thankfully the ratings were just good enough to help it secure a second season. It then went on to become one of the most watched, and quoted shows in television history, with it’s series finale attracting a little over 76 million viewers.

I can see why it took two seasons for the show to catch on with viewers, those first couple of episodes are pretty bad. The situations also felt a little too real, like when Jerry and Elaine decided to see if they could be “friends with benefits.” It finally found it’s groove in Season 3 with sillier episodes like ‘The Subway‘ and George’s whining became more tolerable. Seinfeld is a “love it” or “hate it” kind of show, but the mark it left on pop culture is undeniable. Even though you should hate these people, you can help but identify with them. Continue Reading
