'Jersey Shore' cast helping with Hurricane Sandy relief, Denzel Washington's "Flight," Coldplay's drummer appearing in 'Game of Thrones'


Jersey Shore Cast to Help With Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort

If you live on the east coast or have watched the news any time in the last week, you know that New Jersey is one of the states got hit pretty hard by that bitch Sandy.

One of the places hit hardest in Jersey is Seaside Heights, which left many wondering if the cast of Jersey Shore would be willing to do something to help the town that helped to make them famous.

You no longer have to wonder because it has been announced that the cast will indeed do their part to help raise money that will go to rebuilding the shore.

They have joined with Architecture for Humanity to plan a benefit that will air live on MTV on November 15.

The one house special will feature the cast along with a variety of celeb guests doing their part to help collect donations that will go to the Restore the Shore fund.

That’s pretty awesome!

Stolichnaya and Budweiser Didn't Agree to Be Used in "Flight" Movie

Most companies love to have their brand featured on a TV show or in a movie.  Product placement is usually pretty good for the brand’s image denzel washington flightand sales.

But, it’s looking like two brands aren’t thrilled about the exposure and want to do something about it.

The upcoming film Flight is about a pilot (played by Denzel Washington) who is heroic, but also an alcoholic.  So, it is pretty obvious that viewers are going to see quite a few liquor brands splashes across the big screen.

However, two brands you might not see are Stolichnaya and Budweiser.

During an interview Budweiser’s VP voiced his displeasure about his brand being used for something negative.  And a Stoli rep has said that that the brand didn’t even agree to be used in the movie.

Will they win and have their logos removed?  Probably not, since a “fair use” provision allows film productions to use recognizable images and signage without having to first get permission.

And, will this fight hurt the brands?  Not sure about that either.

Should be interesting…

Coldplay Drummer Will Champion to Appear in HBO's Game of Thrones

Do you like Coldplay?  Do you like Game of Thrones?  Would you like to somehow see the two come together?

If you said yes, then you are in luck.

It looks like the band’s drummer, Will Champion, will be appearing in at least one episode of the popular series.

What does the role entail for Champion?  Well, he’ll be playing a drummer!  Duh!

Unfortunately that’s pretty much all that is known.

It seems like the series likes adding a musical cameo here and there considering Gary Lightbody, the lead singer of Snow Patrol, will also appear at some point during the new season.

Want to see what the series has in store for both musicians?  You’ll have to wait until the third season begins in March 2013.
