Attention-starved screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno, The U.S. of Tara) has plenty of good news. She delivered baby Marcello Daniel Maurio on July 27. And her new traveling talk-show Red Band Trailer, recorded in her Airstream, is playing on YouTube. Her first three shows are below.

And Jason Reitman may actually direct her script Young Adult with Charlize Theron in the role of a young adult writer who stalks her ex-high school boyfriend. The Juno team of Mr. Mudd and Mandate start filming in November, reports Deadline.

Cody's first Red Band Trailer interviews are with folks she knows: Adam Brody, who starred in Jennifer's Body, which Cody wrote; TV host Chelsea Handler, for whom Cody's husband Dan Maurio works; and Juno star Jason Bateman. I admire Cody's screenwriting. I'm not sure about her future as a talk-show host. But I watched all three of these--recognizing that her guests were a lot more comfortable with the camera than she is. Isn't the space already pretty cluttered?

Episode 101: Adam Brody

Episode 102: Chelsea Handler

Episode 103: Jason Bateman

    ...AND she just sold a TV pilot to Fox. The lady is BUSY. Which makes me happy, I really enjoy her prose and her sense of humor. :)

    I'm sorry that I didn't write a stripper blog, have a top manager find me after googling the word "pussy", win an Oscar for my first spec sale, get hand picked by Spielberg to run a show...I just hope this woman realizes her path has been amazingly blessed. I mean, like it's science fiction her story. I do like her though, even if I'm totally jeal. She's a fun wordsmith (well, except for that heinous scene with Rain Wilson in Juno with the legomyeggo dialogue)
