Sean Penn Leads A Ridgemont High Reunion
Tags: Sean Penn Leads A Ridgemont High Reunion
The 2011 Guys Choice Awards aired on Spike TV Friday night (June 10). The celebrities were out and were in rare form. Jim Carrey received the Funniest Motherf***** Mantlers and his speech was, well ... we can't embed it on this family-friendly site. But Spike has made it available if you missed the broadcast.
But what we can share with you are the "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" reunion, Jennifer Aniston receiving the Decade of Hotness Award (which she likes that it takes her back to 2001, since she says had some scary looks in the 90s) and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog riffing on Anthony Weiner (among other topics).
Actor Sean Penn's sense of humor has been on an extended vacation (aside from his deadpan "Colbert Report" appearance), so it's nice to see him acknowledge an important part of his past -- stoner surfer Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times At Ridgemont High. At Spike's Guys Choice 2011, Penn got up on stage with director Amy Heckerling and other contributors (how did I forget Forest Whitaker was in that??) to accept an award (from Robert DeNiro) for the classic comedy, and gave an all-too-short in-character shout-out.

Sean Penn might have a couple of Oscars under his belt, but he's still Spicoli after all these years. The "Milk" actor was on hand for Spike TV's "Guys Choice" awards on Saturday with several of his castmates from the 1982 classic "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," which was inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame. Surrounded by Forest Whitaker, Judge Reinhold, Robert Romanus and "Fast Times" director Amy Heckerling (as well as Robert De Niro, who bestowed the antlered trophy), Penn revisited his surfer/stoner character Jeff Spicoli, delivering the »
At Spike TV's "Guys Choice Awards" (because guys so rarely get to decide just about everything) the male cast of Fast Times at Ridgemont High and director Amy Heckerling reunited on stage and Sean Penn brought back his breakthrough role as Jeff Spicoli for about two seconds by saying "Aloha, Mr. Hand" as only Spicoli could say it. Spicoli is a funny role these days because it's such a light role and Penn has devoted himself to serious movies and serious issues for the majority of his career. The last time he did an (intentional) comedy was 1999's Sweet and Lowdown (2001's I Am Sam is pretty hilarious). I can't help but wonder if audiences could even accept Penn in a comic role today.

In honor of the film's 30th anniversary this year, the cast of Fast Times at Ridgemont High reunited at Spike TV's Guy Choice Awards back on June 4th. The actual awards ceremony airs on TV tomorrow night, but Spike was cool enough to put most of the highlights on their website, including this one. Unfortunately none of the main actresses were available, but it's still cool to see some of the main players back together again, as well as Sean Penn try on the voice of Spicoli one last time. Featured in this image, we have: From left: Taylor Negron (the pizza delivery guy); Forest Whitaker (Charles Jefferson); Amy Heckerling (director); Brian Backer (Mark "Rat" Ratner); Judge Reinhold (Brad Hamilton); Robert Romanus (Mike Damone); and Sean Penn (Jeff...
After last season's cliffhanger of priceless Nazi-plundered art seemingly going ka-boom, then popping up in a storage locker from an anonymous source, the "White Collar" Season 3 premiere is back and guess who stole the art? Mozzie. Which should have come as less of a surprise than it did, I think.
Mozzie comes clean as the thief to Neal and they decide to run with the loot. Peter's big clue to who stole the stuff is the scrap of one of Neal's paintings he saw at the explosion. It turns out Mozzie used Neal's art in the swap so the forensic tests would find paint and canvas in the warehouse and Neal is sweating. Peter can't go to the Bureau with his suspicions yet, so Elle offers to call in a favor at a gallery to test the scrap and see if it's old or new.

It was a guys' night out on Saturday (June 4) at Spike TV's annual "Guys Choice Awards." Among the honorees of the evening were "Funniest Mother F***er" Jim Carrey, "Rookie of the Year" Blake Griffin and "Brass Balls" recipient, Keith Richards.
Zap2it was on the red carpet asking a few of the attendees about some of their biggest man-crushes. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.
We can think of plenty of guys who have a man crush on L.A. Clipper, Griffin, but when we spoke with the him, the athlete revealed a soft spot for teammate DeAndre Jordan. The two arrived, walked the carpet and sat together during the show. Dare we call them "dates?"
"Reno 911's" Tom Lennon and Ben Garant were amped to present the "Manvention of the Year" award for 3D Japanese pornography... or something. [Related: Stay tuned for our "Being a Girl at Guys Choice" perspective post coming later this week.]

It's nice to know that Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson are handling their breakup pretty well. At least that's what it seemed like last night at the taping of Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards… Penn was on hand for the induction of Fast Times at Ridgemont High into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame, while ScarJo hit the stage with her Avengers costar Chris Evans (looking super cute in a pair of Simon Spurr jeans, by the way) to honor the U.S. military. Penn and Johansson ran into each other backstage. "Scarlett Johansson & Sean Penn took a pic together backstage," tweeted my pal Jared Eng of Just Jared.

The Sony lot in Culver City was transformed into a mix of Key West and Havana Cuba last night for the fifth annual Guys Choice Awards. It's always an unconventional affair and last night was no different, with Cameron Diaz kicking things off in a sexy sheer suit and setting up the evening with a few rules a la Bad Teacher. She came out again later to present Jim Carrey with the Funniest MFer award, and he pushed the boundaries with his acceptance speech. Justin Timberlake preached to the crowd about finding the Holy Grail of Hotness winner, his Friends With Benefits costar Mila Kunis, who defeated Minka Kelly for the crown. It was Jennifer Aniston, however, who got the ultimate accolades for her sexy status: the Decade of Hotness award. She thanked her yoga teacher for keeping her in such great shape and gave big hugs to all her Horrible Bosses costars, »

Newly single stars Sean Penn and Scarlett Johansson avoided a face-to-face reunion on Saturday as the former lovers both attended the Spike Guys' Choice Awards in Los Angeles.
The actors were said to have enjoyed a brief romance before news of the break-up emerged earlier this week.
But there was no awkward meet-up at the glitzy California bash - Johansson walked the red carpet, while Penn arrived late to accept an award from Robert De Niro as his 1982 movie Fast Times At Ridgemont High was inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.
Johansson opted not to talk about her love life to reporters and instead turned the focus onto her latest movie project.
She told JustJared.com, "I just flew in from New Mexico, where I've been shooting The Avengers. A bunch of the cast is here tonight but I'm here to support the troops. (Co-star) Chris Evans and I are presenting. We're right in the middle of scenes and figuring a lot of stuff out. I've been training a lot and doing all sorts of exercises."
The evening saw Justin Timberlake present his Friends with Benefits co-star Mila Kunis with the Holy Grail of Hotness Award, while Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards stepped onstage to accept the humorously titled Brass Balls Award, as well as a literary prize for his autobiography, Life.
Pineapple Express star Danny McBride was hailed the Comedy Mvp, while Modern Family TV babe Sofia Vergara accepted the Hot and Funny prize, and Jennifer Aniston was lauded with the Decade of Hotness title. »

In the mood for some tasty waves, a cool buzz, or at least a mini-reunion of the cast of Fast Times at Ridgemont High?

An American Pie movie just isn’t the same without the entire cast. Watching one without all of its key members is like squeezing blood from a stone. American Reunion has locked in the original cast members from American Pie for the eighth film in the franchise.
If you missed the last four spin-offs (American Pie Presents: Bandcamp, The Nake Mile, Beta House and The Book of Love) that’s because they went straight to video, but fear not, Everyone is back for the Reunion. Shannon Elizabeth (That 70′s Show) was one of the last holdouts–probably because (we’re guessing) she’d have to get nude–but signed to join co-stars Jason Biggs (Mad Love), Chris Klein (We Were Soldiers), Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother), Thomas Ian Nicholas (Let the Game Begin), Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Dad), Natasha Lyonne (Blade: Trinity), Seann William Scott (Role Models, Goon »

It was in 1982 that he landed his breakout role as the stoner-surfer Jeff Spicoli, in the iconic comedy classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Some actors don’t like to reflect on their earlier roles that made them stars, but Penn isn’t one of them.

I tried so hard to find an Oprah-themed Bad Movie We Love this week. Bad news, my darlings: they're all not good enough. Beloved is too boring, Native Son is too serious, and The Color Purple is too funny. (Trust me.) So I rallied and made big choices. This week I'm commemorating Tree of Life star Sean Penn's filthy past and Oprah's biggest finale guest: the ineffable, the insufferable, La Sleaza Bonita herself, Madonna. Read: This Is A Great Day. And the movie is a legend among awful, latrine-stink cinema, a rancid little misfortune cookie called Shanghai Surprise. Or as I prefer to call it: Not-So-Fast Times with Frigid Wife. »
