Wu-Tang Clan rapper/producer-turned-actor RZA could play a martial arts expert named the Blind Master in the G.I. Joe sequel, says MTV. The character trained Joe commandos Snake Eyes and Jinx.

Actor Wendell Pierce will be starring as B.B. King--the "King of Blues"--in an upcoming film, B.B. King and I. It's based on an encounter that aspiring drummer Michael Zanetis had with B.B.

Call us warped, but we're thrilled by the prospect of Armageddon. With millions of the faithful lifted skyward by the Rapture, their homes will be empty, meaning we'll finally be able to score a swanky Oceanside pad for mere pennies on the dollar.
Of course, should that scenario not play out on Saturday, we'll have to console ourselves with a marathon of doomsday flicks and pine for what might have been.

Jackass star Steve-O was arrested in Calgary this week for allegedly assaulting a heckler there eight years ago. Call us jaded, but we think the Canadian authorities are overreacting to behavior that's more an extension of the Jackass brand than a threat to public safety.
