    I love Joel McHale because he takes nothing seriously and always seems to say what I'm thinking.

    He even makes fun of his own E! network celeb coverage, so he's my kinda guy.

    It's always amazing whenever Paris Hilton tries to do... well, anything. It's clear she still thinks she has some amazing talent or skill to share with the world. So it always does my heart good to see that not too many others share Paris' opinion of herself.

    Her latest gift to the world is an even bigger bomb than I thought it would be:

    Paris: Box-Office Bomber
    Posted Feb 9th 2008 5:30PM by TMZ Staff

    Paris Hilton was whining for her friend Courtney at Avalon last night -- annoying all in earshot. But perhaps the Hilton heiress needed comfort due to her lackluster ticket sales.

    According to Fantasy Moguls, Paris' movie, "The Hottie and the Nottie," opened on 111 screens yesterday, and sold only $76 in ticket sales per location. That breaks down to approximately 10 people per theater. It's anticipated that the movie will sell only $23,000 during the three-day weekend.

    Looks like Paris' whining is clearly justified -- she should go straight to DVD next time!

    I heart Joel McHale! He makes me laugh every week for the same exact reason.


    On a much sadder note, Casanova was on Bravo! tonight and I couldn't watch it after a little while. Everytime I saw Heath's face I started crying. God, I wish I wasn't such an emotional person, lol!

    Jaws' Actor Scheider Dies at 75

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Roy Scheider, the actor best known for his role as a police chief in the blockbuster movie "Jaws," has died. He was 75.

    Scheider died Sunday at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital in Little Rock, hospital spokesman David Robinson said. The hospital did not release his cause of death.

    However, hospital spokeswoman Leslie Taylor said Scheider had been treated for multiple myeloma at the hospital's Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy for the past two years.

    Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss starred in the 1975 movie, "Jaws," which was widely hailed as the film that launched the era of the Hollywood blockbuster. It was the first film to earn $100 million at the box office.

    In 2005, one of Scheider's most famous lines in the movie — "You're gonna need a bigger boat" — was voted No. 35 on the American Film Institute's list of best quotes from U.S. movies.

    That year, some 30 years after "Jaws" premiered, hundreds of movie buffs flocked to Martha's Vineyard, off the southeastern coast of Massachusetts, to celebrate the great white shark that terrified millions of moviegoers.

    The island's JawsFest '05 also brought back some of the cast and crew, including screenwriter Carl Gottlieb and Peter Benchley, who wrote the novel that inspired Steven Spielberg's enduring classic.

    Spielberg, Scheider, who played a police chief, and Dreyfuss, who played an oceanographer, were absent from Jawsfest '05. Co-star Robert Shaw, who played Quint, died in 1978.

    Scheider also participated in rallies protesting U.S. military action in Iraq, including a massive New York demonstration in March 2003 that police said drew 125,000 chanting activists.
    Rest in peace, Mr. Scheider.

    Sad. I always liked him. I think one of my favorite movies of his was

    All That Jazz.

    He used to have a house in Key West and back in my young single days when we went to Key West a lot, we would always drive by it several times hoping to catch a glimpse of him. Never did.

    RIP Mr. Scheider.

    RIP Roy Scheider. You will be sorely missed. I will forever remember your most famous line in Jaws. "We're going to need a bigger boat."
