    Watch Tom Hardy Be Very Naked In Short Film "Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother"

    This is unlikely to stay online long, but Greg Williams' short film "Sergeant Slaughter, My Big Brother" is currently online (and embedded below), and features a whole lot of full frontal (and some serious homoeroticism... even if its between two brothers) care of the dreamiest up-and-comer this side of Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy. Enjoy, though clearly not with co-workers in sight.. or check it out at the New York Digital Short Film Festival next weekend.

    Watch: Trailer For 'Set Up' Another Terrible Amazing Movie With 50 Cent

    Bruce Willis & Ryan Phillippe Shamed50 Cent is the gift that keeps on giving. Last year, the rapper/actor made a 10-picture, $200 million deal between his Cheetah Vision production banner and Hedge Fund Film Partners which appears to be resulting in a bunch of films shot on the cheap with no attention given to any details or to even the most basic tenets of filmmaking. Case in point: "Things Fall Apart." But this time Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe were somehow conned into this latest fiasco, "Set Up," which now has a trailer and we have no idea who keeps getting hired to cut these (though we secret hope Fiddy is doing it himself).

    International Sales Agent of the Day: Figa

    Figa Films Marimbas From Hell just won the $20,000 Ibero Grand Jury Prize in the Miami International Film Festival. This premiered at San Sebastian 2010 and went on to play TIFF 10. Directed by Julio Hernández Cordón, whose Gasolina made an international splash, is now in production on another film to keep in your sites. Marimbas tells the story of Don Alfonso, a deliveryman who also plays marimbas, the traditional Guatemalan instrument who approaches an underground heavy-metal legend, Blacko, suggesting the two fuse their styles. What results is a distinct Guatemalan story that represents one of the things that the Miami International Film Festival clearly does best: showcase great Latin American cinema.

    SNL's Victoria Jackson Is Both Still Alive AND a Crazy Backwoods Bigot

    One of the least successful people to ever come out of Saturday Night Live, I was surprised to learn today that Victoria Jackson is both alive, and a crazy backwoods Christian prone to weird hair accessories, non-sensical, REMARKABLY ignorant rants ("homophobia is a buzzword created by the liberal agenda!) and giving anti-gay and anti-Muslim rants on HLN. Jackson comes across as a total nutjob, which is easy enough to laugh at and shake off (mostly thanks the to her voice. I'd always thought that was an act?), but seriously HLN, CNN and every other news program out there: STOP GIVING THESE PEOPLE A PLATFORM AND MAKING IT SEEM LIKE THEIR OPINIONS BELONG ANYWHERE IN THE CONVERSATION.
