While you can continue to debate the merits of Sunday night's Oscars hosted by Seth MacFarlane (as we have already done), the bottom line is the Academy got what they wanted by hiring the edgy, younger skewing, "Family Guy" creator. The ratings for the show were up in 2013 with 40.3 million viewers tuning in, the highest figure since 41.3 million turned on their televisions to see if "Avatar" would win Best Picture. (It didn't.) Anyway, if the Academy wants to go with the same gameplan next year, they'll have to find someone else.

Easily one of the major buzz titles to come out of the Sundance Film Festival this year, Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut "Don Jon's Addiction" picked up nearly universal rave reviews, but many people also wondered: would the movie be able to keep the sex scenes intact? Let's rewind a bit. In the film, JGL has the titular lead, a porn addicted lothario who begins a relationship with two different women and tries to unplug from the smut he thoroughly enjoys. The movie itself also contains a handful of porn clips, but it looks like they will be getting the axe.

Now that the acquisitions floodgates are open, the buys keep piling up like it's Black Friday in studio shopping baskets, and this afternoon has brought news of the biggest deal yet at the festival, with Variety the first trade to report that Relativity Media are set to put down a what may be a record-breaking sum for "Don Jon's Addiction," the raunchy comedy that marks the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film also stars the "Looper" actor as a modern-day New Jersey Casanova, who's unable to form real relationships with women due to his porn addiction, but begins to soften up after meeting two women, a younger girl (Scarlett Johansson) and an older classmate (Julianne Moore), and we'd picked it out as one of the films likely to spark off a bidding war.

Jon Martello is the quintessential modern-day lothario. He and his friends objectify women, rate them on a scale of one to ten and cruise clubs for chicks that they can bed and discard. Jon, in particular, is exceptionally good at wooing the ladies with his muscles, slick-backed hair and cocky charms. His life, as he tells us in voiceover, is all about his friends, the gym, his ride (a Camaro muscle car), his family, church (no, really), girls and pornography. Lots and lots of pornography. Jon is an inveterate and compulsive porn addict, so much so that it prevents him from having a substantial relationship with any female. Jon Martello, in case you missed it, is a total guido from New Jersey, complete with "Jersey Shore "accent.

Yeah, we know. It was only this afternoon that we were talking about how hot Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at the moment, with franchises being thrown left and right at the actor. He's already passed on "Godzilla," and now he's turned down Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" for the chance to step into Robert Rodriguez's noir soaked world.

It seems everyone wants a piece of Joseph Gordon-Levitt these days. The actor was rumored to play Batman in "Justice League," is on the ever growing list of contenders for "Guardians Of The Galaxy," is hosting the Sundance awards later this month, and now has another franchise being tossed across his very messy desk. Needless to say, dude has options.

Just before the Christmas break, it was reported that Marvel's search for the leading man for their upcoming "Guardians Of The Galaxy" had been narrowed down to Jim Sturgess and "Chuck" star Zachary Levi. However, there was a caveat "that the studio may add a third name into the mix after the holidays." And that's exactly what has happened.

So, about a week ago rumors surfaced that the brewing "Justice League" movie would have the God-like Darkseid as the villain of the superhero team-up movie. But just what will his nefarious plot be? Well, if this latest buzz is anything to go by, his scheme will certainly require a few hands on deck.
