Eva Amurri is Susan Sarandon’s Little Girl

Anyone who’s ever wanted to see Eva Amurri, Susan Sarandon’s daughter, in the buff is soon going to get their wish. The big-breasted actress plays a student stripper in the upcoming season of David Duchovny’s Showtime series Californication, and she is going to take all of it off. Duchovny has arguably the best job on the face of the planet, as it’s going to be his job to get seduced by Amurri. We’re sure he’ll give it his best college try. [Egotastic]

Rebecca Hall Getting Dazed with Richard Linklater

Rebecca Hall, the hottie who made her big debut in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, won the lead in director Richard Linklater’s road trip film Liars A-E. It’s about a woman who – for some reason it’s set during Obama’s inauguration – goes about getting stuff back from all of her ex-boyfriends. Picture Broken Flowers minus Bill Murray. Kat Dennings from Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist is set to play Hall’s best friend. If nothing else we know that this film will be easy on the eyes. [Hollywood Reporter]

Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood Becoming a Team

Matt Damon stars in legendary director Clint Eastwood’s new film Invictus, which follows the story of Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) and the captain of the rugby team of South Africa, Francois Pienaar (Matt Damon), as they try to reunite their country. And now the actor and director are teaming up for a supernatural thriller the director is comparing to The Sixth Sense. This is definitely a change of pace for the director’s typically gritty dramas. If Eastwood wants to make a scary movie, you can be damn sure it’s going to be scary. And that’s scary. [Variety]

Joe Perry is Pretty Pissed at Steven Tyler

Aerosmith's axeman Joe Perry officially expressed irritation that the band has been forced to cancel their U.S. and Canadian shows after Steven Tyler fell off a stage back in August. Perry said he was "upset" that the band had cancelled the tour and explained that he has hardly spoken to Tyler since his fall. "I haven't talked to him in over five weeks," he told the Associated Press. "I don't know what's going on with him. I hear he's getting better, but I don't know I really don't know what's going on with him." All is not well with the bad boys of Boston. [AP]

Delonte West Goes Terminator

While it's unclear if he was preparing for the apocalypse or trying to save Sarah Connor from the T1, Cleveland Cavaliers’ guard Delonte West was arrested late last night for speeding on his motorcycle while carrying two handguns and a loaded rifle. The 26-year-old guard has yet to comment on the situation, but reporters around the country would love to know how exactly this will affect LeBron James 2010 free agent status. [National Post]

Lamar Odom Gains 275 Pounds Over Offseason

Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom proposed to Khloe Kardashian (the sister of that chick with a sex tape) and plans to get married in less than two weeks. Long regarded as the biggest pothead in the NBA, it has not been confirmed that the engagement was done while sober or as some elaborate joke. Either way, congrats from the Spike team and we look forward to one day seeing your eight-foot children. [The Hollywood Gossip]

Title of "Dumbest Thief Ever" Passed On to This Guy

Joining our ever-increasing pantheon of stupid criminals, we have one 19-year-old Pennsylvania man who was nabbed after forgetting to log out of his Facebook account at the scene of the crime. What would drive someone to stop to check Facebook on a computer owned by the person you robbing? Facebook addiction is a serious problem, folks. Mark my words—its only a matter of time before some idiot felon gives a play-by-play tweet session of a crime in progress. [Mashable]

Dell and HP Developing 3D Gaming Laptops Whether You Want 'Em or Not

While the reaction to the newest push for 3D displays has been mixed at best, HP and Dell are convinced that you'll be willing to put on goofy glasses and get a headache for a price, regardless. The rumor is that Dell and HP have placed orders with Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron for 3D notebooks and they could arrive soon. Acer also has been rumored to be releasing a notebook with a 16-inch 3D display as soon as next month. 3D technology would add quite a bit to these types of notebooks - I mean, who hasn't wondered why they couldn't check their email in three dimensions before?
