Heidi Klum Gets Naughty For Fashion Book
A new book of photography dedicated to Heidi Klum has hit the market. The book, Rankin’s Heidilicious, is jammed packed with sexy photographs of the supermodel. Heidi appears on every single page in every pose conceivable. She appears covered in chocolate, wearing suspenders, covered in paint, topless, and nude. This book is the perfect coffee table book because it’s arty not porny. [Egotastic]
Adrianne Curry Shows Off Her Muscles
Reality television star Adrianne Curry posted a photograph of her muscular upper back on Twitter today. The model flexes her guns and shows off her nicely round booty. Along with the photo, Curry posted the following message, “My pumped upper back. I may look skinner, but I'm cut,bitches! ;).” Curry lives a truly charmed life. She married a Brady, works out her hot body, and dresses up like hot comic book characters. [The Superficial]
Anthony Hopkins Joins Thor
In a new bit of casting news, Anthony Hopkins has joined Kenneth Branagh’s adaptation of Marvel’s Thor. He’s going to play Odin, the Norse god and poppa to Thor. As ruler of Asgard Hopkins will have good company: Natalie Portman, Robert De Niro, Jude Law, and Samuel L. Jackson have also climbed onboard Branagh’s ship of Thor. This has got a heavy duty cast for a somewhat questionable movie concept. Thor, a god, is sent down to earth to live amongst mere mortals after causing one too many problems in Asgard. Hopkins is pretty much perfect for the part of Odin and lends some veteran talent to the cast. [Heat Vision]
Men in Black 3 is in the Works
Yes, it’s true: there’s a Men in Black 3 movie in the works over at Sony. Etan Cohen, the guy who helped write Tropic Thunder, is signed on to pen the script. The main question at this point is: will Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones return for another sequel? Okay, that’s not really the question. The question is will Will Smith return? Because without him, this movie doesn’t have a whole lot going for it. Barry Sonnenfeld, who directed the first two movies, is happy to helm the third film, which should come as no surprise considering the complete lack of high profile projects he’s directed since Men in Black 2. Without Smith this thing is dead on arrival, but Smith definitely has his pick of the litter at this point. That said, without the return of Jones this movie might get made, but it’s unlikely it would be half as good as the first (the second sure wasn’t). [Collider]

Faith No More is extending their official comeback and planning to tour the United States. Faith No More blew away fans during a string of European dates this summer and it has apparently motivated the band to hit their native land for a number of gigs. Bassist Billy Gould confirmed the tour by stating: "In response to all of our concerned U.S. brethren, yes, we are now actively planning U.S. dates." Yes! [Contact Music]
Shaquille O'Neal Keeps Collecting Fake Police Badges
Occasional NBA center Shaquille O'Neal has applied for an honorary position with the Cleveland Sheriff's Department (something he's done in pretty much every city he's ever played in) in an effort to help battle crime and further take time away from actually improving on the basketball court. No word yet has been given as to whether the application will be accepted, but after his completely fake badge was stripped by the Phoenix Sheriff's department after asking Kobe "How his ass tastes" in a rap song, O'Neal has been without fictional authority for months and is desperate to get back his ability wear a Halloween costume and give warnings to tourists.

Sports Gamblers Finally On Top
For the first time in years, sportsbooks across the world are recording massive losses thanks to a predictable NFL season filled with minimal upsets and a slew of sh***y teams that refuse to cover a single point spread. The world's largest gambling operators claim that because favorites are winning by such decisive margins, pretty much everybody and their grandmother is cashing in this season - furthering the financial instability of an already volatile industry… How's it feel Vegas? We hope you have to eat nothing but ramen noodles your sophomore year of college because The Baltimore Ravens decided to take a knee on 2nd and goal. [Breaking Travel News]
