'Sweet Home Alabama's' Bubba Thompson on beers, the Bible, Salma Hayek and the 'Cowboy Code'

  • Pop2it
Fan favorite finalist Bubba Thompson from Cmt's "Sweet Home Alabama" has written a book about love, dating, and the uniquely debonaire ways of a real cowboy. But before you read the Alabama charmer's book, check out Bubba's answers to our "Survey Says" questions:

What is your current computer desktop picture?

Open sky -- there's nothing better to look at for the soul.

What would you want to be written on your tombstone?

He lived an honest life and knew how to "Cowboy Up."

Do you believe in karma?

The way you treat others is the most important thing in a cowboy's life. Honoring and respecting others, your faith, your animals and your land -- it all comes back to you as karma in the end. This is one of the main themes in my new book.

What was the last lie you told?

"I only had one beer."

Do you have any strange phobias?

Dermot Mulroney Vs. Dylan McDermott

  • NextMovie
They're practically the same age, with names so similar they give dyslexics seizures, and both have played love interests of Julia Roberts. But Dermot Mulroney and Dylan McDermott are not the same person. We swear.

The two actors have both had steady careers, with Mulroney sticking mostly to character roles on the big screen ("Zodiac," "J. Edgar") while McDermott found fame on the boob tube starring in hit shows like "The Practice," "Dark Blue" and Ryan Murphy's current FX series "American Horror Story."

What would happen if these two went toe-to-toe for nine electrifying rounds in our ring of pop culture minutiae? With McDermott set to join Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis on the election trail in "The Campaign" this week, there's no better time than the present.

Best Movie Role

Dermot Mulroney: Randall Hertzel, "About Schmidt" (2002)

Dylan McDermott: Secret Service Agent Al D'Andrea, "In the Line of Fire" (1993)

Advantage: Mulroney,

My First Job: Woody Harrelson

My First Job: Woody Harrelson
Everett Woody Harrelson in “The Cowboy Way” (1994)

He refuses to take work calls on a cell phone. He doesn’t eat meat or smoke. Sometimes, he’ll drink caffeine. But one thing’s for sure, Woody Harrelson has perfect aim.

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Harrelson took on the job of local paperboy. He found he had a knack for delivering the dailies, but when it came to collecting money, the 10-year-old Harrelson failed.

“It was very difficult being a paper boy.

Dylan McDermott Perks with Emma Watson

  • Boomtron
Variety shared an exclusive with the world centering upon actor Dylan McDermott. He’s his own brand of McDreamy, yes? He’s also gearing up for both television and film, making him a well rounded actor this year indeed.

In addition to signing the dotted line to act in the FX pilot American Horror Story from creator Ryan Murphy, he has two, count them, two films upcoming. One is called Nobody Walks, written by Lena Dunham and Ry Russo Young (and directed by Young). McDermott joins John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby and Jane Levy on the cast.

Willie Nelson to Make 3-5 Films a Year

  • Cinematical
Willie Nelson to Make 3-5 Films a Year
He's been acting for 30 years and recently even became part of a franchise (Dukes of Hazzard), but I would never think of Willie Nelson as a movie star. Yet the country music icon and star of 1980s Honeysuckle Rose has launched a production company called Luck Films, which will produce 3-5 films a year, many featuring Nelson and/or his music. Nelson isn't going at this alone, though. Joining him are actor/producer Kerry Wallum, actor/filmmaker Norman Macera and producers Scott Macauley and David Von Roehm. According to Variety, each release will have a budget under $3 million.

The company's first movie, which I can't find any info on except that it will star Nelson and start shooting in May, is called The Dry Gulch Kid. The next, titled Shoot Out of Luck, will feature Nelson and Randall 'Tex' Cobb as sideshow cowboys who "tangle" with the mob for a

When Hearing "Hallelujah" is No Time to Rejoice

  • IFC
There's no shortage of songs that get overused on the big and small screen, and whether the result of unimaginative hacks or some ill-conceived notion of what audiences want (uninformed hacks), it's always baffling. Staples like "The Way You Look Tonight," "Let's Get It On" and James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)" should never be heard in a film again. Then there are songs that have been so overused they should never be heard again, period. Bad to begin with, mindless garbage like "Takin' Care Of Business" and "Walking on Sunshine" are musical trans fats -- artificial, monetized and bad for society, they should be banned as such.

Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is a different sort of song altogether. It's far from bad, nor is it really a staple that's overplayed its welcome. In fact, it should be acknowledged, once the mind's cleared of the cynicism wrought by overexposure,
