Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently revealed that had Chris Pratt turned down the role of Star-Lord, he and Marvel would have made an offer to Glenn Howerton. At this point, it's hard to imagine anyone turning down Marvel for any reason except other contractual obligations or scheduing conflicts. Said Gunn, "Glenn came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn't cast Chris, that I would've cast Glenn Howerton in the role." That's interesting considering the long, Long, Long list of candidates initially in the running for the role. To be exact, Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Lee Pace (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), James Marsden (X-Men) Sullivan Stapleton (Animal Kingdom), Jim Sturgess (Cloud Atlas), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises »
Wrestling names can be hard to come up with. The name should ideally sound tough or cool without being cheesy. It’s a fine line to walk. Ideally, the name has to fit the person playing the character. However, even bad or bland wrestling names sometimes work. After all, Steve Austin shares the same name as the lead character from a campy 70’s show, all-time great Buddy Rogers doesn’t sound all that menacing, and The Rock is…well, a rock.
While none of those ring names may sound that great upon hearing them for the first time, they’re at least not offensive, and make you question the sanity of whoever came up with it. That’s not always the case though.
Professional wrestling is usually years behind the times when it comes to political correctness. Over the past 15 years alone, we’ve had Billy and Chuck, »

“If there was singing – and that’s a big if – if there was singing, it would be classic rock, not this Andrew Floyd Webber crap.”
So says Supernatural‘s Dean, butchered name and all, when he and Sam stumble upon a all-girls high school musical adaptation of their lives, based on the published and unpublished works of Chuck – who makes a surprise reappearance! – in the CW series’ 200th episode Tuesday night.
But there was actually plenty to love about the hour – even Dean came »
After 200 episodes, “Supernatural,” which bowed in 2005, has been to hell and back (several times), with a few sojourns to heaven, purgatory, Oz, the past, the post-apocalyptic future and even our world along the way. The show weathered the conversion from The WB to The CW, survived the 2007-08 writers’ strike, and transitioned through several showrunners — and there’s no end in sight. Here, the stars and creative team chart the unlikely journey of the “little show that could.”
Eric Kripke (Creator): For me, the core notion behind “Supernatural” was to make a series about urban legends. I think they’re this incredibly rich mythology about the United States, and no one had really tapped into that, so when I started as a writer, one of the first ideas I ever pitched was an urban legend show.
A couple years later I tried to pitch, basically, a “Scooby Doo” rip »
