Arnold Schwarzenegger
True Blood star Joe Manganiello can't thank director David Ayer enough for handing him a role in new action movie Sabotage, because it gave him the chance to get close to his hero Arnold Schwarzenegger.

After missing out on a role in Training Day, which Ayer wrote, Manganiello found himself living out a dream on the set of the writer/director's latest project, and he admits it was intimidating and daunting at times to act opposite the guy who used to stare at him from a poster on his bedroom wall.

Zack Snyder's reported list of actors in the running to play Batman in an upcoming crossover with Superman includes some intriguing selections.

At the top of the list, as far as name recognition, are Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling. Both have worked with Warner Bros. on Gangster Squad. Broslin is also working with the studio for Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Gosling, on the other hand, seems to be attached to just about everything these days.

Joe Manganiello returns to HIMYM
HIMYM returned last night and so did Joe Manganiello as Brad, Marshall’s old law school buddy. The episode “World’s Greatest Couple,” where Brad and Marshall have a bromance back in season two is still one of my favorites. Marshall finds Brad a bit down on his luck, and offers to get him an interview at the law firm at which he is working.

When the gang finds out about this, they relay to Marshall that he gives out too many recommendations, calling him the “Stamp Tramp.” By giving out so many stamps of approval, they have basically become meaningless. Needless to say, the interview ends...
