Thompson on Hollywood

Mad Men Seduction Video

Here's a distraction on a busy work day. Jump in. Why is rampant sexism so...sexy? My only complaint: why wasn't there more of the show's ultra-womanizer, Don Draper?

Debating Eclipse and Knight and Day with At the Movies' Phillips and Scott

Apparently my defense of James Mangold's Knight and Day so astonished At the Movies' Michael Phillips and A.O. Scott that the co-hosts asked me to debate the subject with them online via Skype; we also tangled a bit on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which Scott liked, but Phillips loathed.

Stewart Does Letterman, Likely Can't Do Girl with Dragon Tattoo

It looks like Twilight star Kristen Stewart is too busy to even chase after The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She'd love to do the role, but hasn't talked to David Fincher about it and may not be able to squeeze it into her crazy schedule anyway. (Meanwhile, in The New Yorker, Nora Ephron channels Lisbeth Salander.)

Cruise vs. Cruise, Kimmel Rides Zipline, Knight and Day B.O.

Compare the real Tom Cruise doing stunts on Jimmy Kimmel -- and the fake Tom Cruise below. @TomCruise is all over Twitter with his blog posts. Not missing a trick. (Again, I think he should pull back on trying to get people's attention.)

Trailer Watch: Harry Potter Finale Looks Very Lord of the Rings

The trailer (below) pushing Warner Bros.' November 19 release of the Harry Potter finale Deathly Hallows: Part I (Part II comes July 15, 2011) looks dark, dangerous and epic: Lord of the Rings scale. (It looks even more expensive than the last one, which was $250 million.) Ralph Fiennes as Voldemort chills my spine.

Vanity Fair Cover Girl Jolie Talks Home vs. Career, Bier Teases Haevnen, Kick-Ass Power Petites

- Angelina Jolie graces the cover of August's Vanity Fair, amping up for the release of Salt on July 23rd. The mag posted a taste of the interview today. It's not the first time she's said it, but Jolie was clear about acting not being the most important thing to her, and she does not anticipate doing it much longer, even though it helped her to learn about herself while growing up.
