‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Casting News: Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban

Thor - Ragnarok

Thor 3 got itself a fucking silly-stacked cast. We already knew about Mark Ruffalo. We already knew about Tessa Thompson. We sort of knew about Cate Blanchett. But Goldblum and Urban, too? Marvel ain’t fucking around, and I imagine for good reason. As much as (my butt) and I worship the Odin-Son, his outings have been largely forgettable to the masses at large. Here is hoping the third installment’s as fantastic as its cast.

Cinematic Polyamory: The Cheekbones Edition

 Welcome to Friday’s (no longer Thursday, because I apparently can’t get my shit together on Thursdays) most ridiculous column, Cinematic Polyamory, which — for those of you playing the home game — basically amounts to an ongoing list of the famous people I want to bang.

Last week, I opened with my two number one celeb spouses: Emma Thompson and Steven Spielberg. Today’s lucky duo have been on the list since 2005; celeb hubby #2 has been fixed at numero duo ever since I clapped eyes on him, while celeb wife #2 took about a year to get to her current spot.
