Back when I first heard that Lindsay Lohan would be posing nude for Playboy, I was sad. It seemed a desperate act for a once-promising young star, a final appeal for fame from someone with no other options. It seemed this could be Lohan’s last hurrah, the last time her name would grace a magazine cover (at least, until some sort of tragedy struck). But now, just one day after her Playboy cover leaked on the Web, rocketing Lohan to the top of Internet searches, I’m realizing this could hardly be the end for Lindsay Lohan. This, in fact, »

Pamela Anderson is going to play the Virgin Mary on the Canadian network CTV and The Comedy Network's "A Russell Peters Christmas Special." We'll wait while you go back and check the Zap2it home page for other headlines like "This just in ... pigs with wings," or "Four horsemen spotted on Hollywood Blvd!"
Yes, according to the Hollywood Reporter, the former "Baywatch" star who's done numerous nude photo shoots and one very public sex tape with Tommy Lee is about to play the Virgin Mary. Of course! It's practically type casting. Stripperella, Virgin Mary ... same thing.

With all of the terrible happenings in the news this week, today felt like the perfect Wednesday to veer away from contentious opinions, looting in London and big events impacting individuals who happen to work in comics. So here, without further ado are the ten tweets in the Twitter Report feed from the last 24 hours that were most likely to induce happiness.
They include details about the "Locke and Key" game from Joe Hill, Eric Powell Godzilla art and Stan Lee smiling next to a real life Stripperella. (Spoiler alert: He looks really, really happy.) They are in no particular order except for the best one being last.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for August 10, 2011.

Lee actually created the original version of the character along with Anthony Winn before the cartoon put a different spin on it. You can see Stan and co at Sdcc. The first comic book that Stan Lee has actually written for quite some time. And it’s Stripperella. Nothing to do with he cartoon, it;’s intended to be as Stan would have written it from his original idea. Copies will be signed at the show. Thanks to Bleeding Cool for the info and pics, for a few more head over to the site. By TwitterButtons.com »
In the wake of his infidelity scandal, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first official project since leaving politics has been cancelled.
Production has stopped on ”The Governator,” a family-friendly cartoon series that was to star Schwarzenegger as a retired governor who lives a secret double life as a crime-fighting superhero. His wife, Maria Shriver, and four children were originally planned as part of the series, but their involvement was scrapped before the entire series was cancelled Friday.
A Squared Entertainment, one of the entities producing “The Governator,” announced the show’s demise to the La Times, confirming suspicions that the concept was done for after Schwarzenegger publicly admitted to fathering a love child with a former housekeeper. Unfortunately, now we will never know who might have watched a 63-year-old man hotrod around in “super suits” battling cartoon terminators, if anyone.
This shutdown is the latest failure for a Stan Lee-created character based on a celebrity. »

First there was “Stripperella”, and now there’s “The Governator”. Yes, true believers, Stan Lee, the genius behind the “Spider-Man” comic book and “Stripperella” is launching a new cartoon called, of course, “The Governator” starring who else but the Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The cartoon, which is expected to be out next year, is supposed to be a combination of all the things that makes Schwarznenegger a movie hero. “The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together,” said Schwarzenegger to Entertainment Weekly. “It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies….” The show will be, [...] »
Since completing his term as the governor of California in January, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been hinting at a Hollywood comeback for months. The 63-year-old former action hero said he has at least 15 movie offers on his plate at the moment, including a fifth Terminator movie, a WWII drama titled With Wings as Eagles, and a probable return to The Expendables with his friends and former “Planet Hollywood” business partners Bruce Willis Sylvester Stallone.
But, earlier this month, Schwarzenegger scheduled a press conference to unveil his next project and, naturally, speculation ran rampant, including a pipe dream about True Lies 2 with the Avatar-embedded James Cameron.
The wait is over. Entertainment Weekly unveiled Schwarzenegger’s new career development: an animated television series about a superhero called “The Governator” voiced by Arnold himself. The title borrows from a term coined by the media during his political campaign in 2003, which he adopted at »
