Found this via Uproxx and it just might one of the greatest things that could be done with Mr. Gordon Levitt.  Seriously, how often can this guy make that weird face.  What’s the name of that face anyways?  It seems like he makes his face a puggish by imbuing wrinkles in insane places.  Also that right eyebrow is simply magical.  The magnitude that thing can go is absurd.  By the way has everyone seen 50/50?  You guys should.  He’s amazing in it.  And what’s the deal with Looper?  He’s like a young Bruce Willis?  There was an Entertainment Weekly article on it and it looked somewhat interesting.

We’ve featured a couple of face mashes here like Johnny Depp about the characters he’s played.  But this is a different kind of face mash up.  Queue the main villains of the Dark Knight Trilogy.  Scarecrow, Joker, and Bane.  This is a really neat picture who I wish I could credit the artist, but I’ve tried researching and came up empty handed.  Regardless, this is a cool idea that I totally think should be applied to other movies.  But now that I think of it, I can’t seem to think about any trilogy based movies with multiple different bad guys.  Maybe Star Wars having Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and the Emperor?  That’d be kinda cool with the same breather mask style as pictured above…A project to be put into my ideas binder.  See the Johnny Depp pictured we’ve featured before below.  My only question is that why isn’t Ras Al Ghul’s face as Scarecrow…well maybe they’re only using villains for ‘face’ value.  Ha.  I’m hilarious.

Tressugar compiled an interesting list with actors who have gone full frontal.  This isn’t what we usually cover, but Jason Segal made this list and I absolutely love him after his stunt he pulled on Forgetting Sarah Marshall.  It’s not that I like man junk, but it’s an overall interesting list to see brave actors who have allowed millions of people to see them.  Literally millions of people.  No way I’d do that kind of thing.  Semi-NSFW material ahead.

 

Actors Who Have Gone Full Frontal

Super awesome artist Kristele has a very distinct art style.  We’ve featured her banner including all these Firefly characters before, but now I wanna give her credit to these awesome individual pieces.These awesome character profiles of each character could totally serve as a template for a Firefly animated series.  I would watch that.  I would watch anything Firefly related.  All this recent Firefly posting makes me mis the show again…Sigh…time to go watch Firefly and Serenity for like the 50th time….

See the rest of the character profiles and then visit her deviantart profile I linked above.

A small and short video for ya’ll demonstrating how awesome Nathan Fillion.  Claimed geek god by many for his portrayal of the unforgettable Malcolm Reynolds in one season of Firefly and the awesome movie Serenity, Nathan Fillion is known for generating plenty of antics as seen in the video above.  During a dramatic scene, Fillion decides to carry dramatic in one camera pan across the entire crew. Appearing several times with a dead pan expression.  Some actors can’t handle it, but the ending is especially nice.  If you’re a fan of Firefly or Serenity, do yourself a favor and watch the clip.  If you’re not, do yourself a favor and watch both the series and movie and become a part of a Cult group that will be forever angry at the early death of a beloved show.

From artist Sam Spratt, we have one of the greatest images ever created in the history of man kind.  Ron Swanson is quite possibly the the embodiment of the All-American Hero.  He is an avid fan of meat, he has a strict code in dress, hair style, and personal effects, he can do practically anything given some wood and a hammer, and can catch fish with his bare hands.  He’s likely also fought a bear and won.  And that damn mustache.  It’s so glorious that it makes me want to shed my own Filipino heritage for some nice full facial hair.

Anywho, back to the artist who has created the most badass rendition of Ron Swanson.  Complete with both Tammy tattoos, a ridiculous but likely very true mustache chest hair, a ton of meat in the background, a Mulligan’s apron, and of course the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness.  I would kill for a conversation with Nick Offerman.

It’s hard not loving Pixar movies.  You’d have to be soulless to not absolutely fall in love with the creative and intriguing characters Pixar comes up with.  Moviefone has done the ambitious ranking of nearly all the Pixar characters throughout the years.  With nearly 118 contestants, it was a neat gallery going through and remembering all the crazy characters and the awesome voices that portrayed them.  I’ve included the link starting from number 1, because in all honesty, who wants to scroll through 118 pictures.  Guess who got the number one spot before you hit the link!

Peter Dinklage is very much one of my favorite actors.  He’s fearless.  Game of Thrones, Death at a Funeral, Penelope, Elf to name a few of my favorite roles.  What I’ve posted above is very much one of my favorite .gifs out there.  It’s a scene from the movie Penelope.  Dinklage plays a P.I. who tries to uncover a strange anomaly on a young girl with a veil.  The best P.I.’s are definitely the ones with attitudes.  I could watch Dinklage do this all day.

Avatar the Last Airbender was definitely one of the best animated series out there.  The Legend of Korra took a leap of faith by taking a time skip of about 60+ years to see the repercussions of Avatar Aang and his friends’ actions.  Though the Legend of Korra was definitely a great series, I couldn’t help but miss the old Team Avatar.  Aang’s playful nature, Toph’s bad-girl antics, and Sokka’s comic relief were all things to be missed.  Even their faces.  We were lucky to get some flashbacks through Korra’s eyes to see how they were and even their voices.  But we never got a look at Zuko or Katara at that age.  So at Comic Con Nickelodeon released this awesome image of Team Avatar in full color all grown up.  The image brings a large wave of nostalgia and I totally wish they could create an entire series revolving around them.

This is a cool image from Cracked that essentially shows how NBC’s Scrubs and Community are essentially the same show.  The image itself is neat due to the fact that the calling cards for the community college kids and Sacred Heart Hospital are fairly well done.  But the real wit is drawing up the similarities between the shows main characters.  Some descriptions are broader than others, but a few truly hit the nail on the head.  As soon as they start making Abed say, ‘Eagle!!!!’ once I’m out.

Gosh I miss Scrubs

So Katie Holmes is single again.  She might be a mother, but she’s still as adorable as she was before she wed Tom Cruise.  Over the past years, she’s modeled a couple of times and flaunted her adorable self.  The years have treated her well and she’s come a long way since Dawson’s Creek.  Heavy.com has compiled a large gallery of Katie Holmes’s sexiest pictures.  Click the link below and check out the gallery yourself.  Just be sure to wipe the drool off your face when you’re done.

Well this is a hella awesome photo.  If I got by their street names, Annie, Ron, and Tammy 2 all seemingly love one thing a little too much.  And while Tammy and Annie are clearly having a blast, Ron doesn’t seem to be phased.  Shit’s probably too weak for a man like him.  Anywho, this was a really cool photo that I stumbled upon and I thought it necessary to share it with you.  And while Parks and Recreation is something to look forward to, can the same be said about Community. Sure, I’ll definitely tune in to see how different the show will be, but only because of that reason.  The show won’t have the same quirkiness and wit as usual with Dan Harmon out of the picture.

Now this is a cool clip.  This is a fan-made [I wish I could credit, but it’s so hard these days, someone please remind me if they know] storyboard of how they would include the Joker in [SPOILERS] ……..the scene where Bane releases the inmates of Blackgate and possibly Arkham Asylum ………….[END SPOILERS].  The article had the following subtitles:

Bane: Who’s in there

Henchman: The Clown

Bane: …Leave him

There was a lot of debate in whether or not if the Clown Prince of Crime were included on what his role was, and I think this could of settled a good reason as to why he wasn’t present if he were to be included.  Your thoughts?

I love this list.  This list compiles some very ugly characters on televisions and takes a look at their real life actress portrayals.  We’ve featured one of the players on this list, Thesy Surface.  You’ll also see Crazy Kitty from Arrested Development, Bird-like Dee Reynolds from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.  We absolutely love showcasing attractive women here, so be sure to hit the link and see the prettier sides of actresses.

Comic Con was a week or two ago, and a lot of awesome stuff was revealed and announced.  Amongst them was the casting announcement of several new characters to be featured in Game of Thrones Season 3 aka Storm of Swords.  I absolutely love seeing some of these characters come alive to see if they fit the version I created in my head.  Especially versus the how I originally was able to see them in season 1 before reading the books.  Seeing the dude from Narnia be Jojen is a pretty good nail on the head, as well as Bryndon Tully.  I was especially impressed with Melisandre and Davos Seaworthy casting, and I’m sure once the make up and costumes are on, I won’t be able to tell the difference at all.  It’s all very exciting.  As for an update with Dance with Dragons, I’m nearing the last 100 pages, a review is scheduled for next week!

Can’t believe we have to wait an entire year for season 3!!!

We’re not really a gossip type here at Banana Scoop [we like to think we deliver REAL news, lol], but every once in a while, the usually horrible articles at MSN and Yahoo! catch my attention.  While they’re not too incredibly in depth and too often include celebrities I don’t care about [anyone with the name Bieber or Kardashian], I did find this article from MSN neat about how it compiles the heights of some famous celebrities.  I usually dig random celebrity facts and this is no different.  Sure the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes ones are obvious, but seeing some others like Mr. Bourdain here was pretty interesting.  Check out the article by clicking the link below.

Sean Izaakse drew this super badass rendition of Toy Story heroes and it got made into a legitimate toy!  These toys are what realistic space marines and hardened cowboys are supposed to look like, but having the skins of the unforgettable duo, Woody and Buzz,makes it all that much better.  Now I gotta ask, where is Jessie as the sexy femme fatale?  See the original rendition below.

Spring TV may be over, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop talking about it.  With most television shows, I often fall in love with some of the leads, which lends it itself to about a thick 30-40% of why I’d watch any given television show,  with story and humor/drama being the other 30% or so each.  So today, I kinda compiled some of my favorite crushes from this past season and some of the reasons why I fell so hard for them.

The criteria of why I chose some of the women include the following: 1) Attractiveness – most people in this industry are fairly attractive.  From this category, I’m looking for unique looking people who behold beauty in their own special way. 2) Personality – Most of the people on this list will make me laugh.  It’s truly the gateway into most men’s heart.  And when you have to choose from a list of all beautiful looking women, character personality is a good way to divide the lines. 3) Plot Driving – Whether they’re actually essential to the story or just a pretty face is kinda important to me.  It makes it so much more intimate when the characters you care for actually mean something to story.  4) Fashion Sense – I’m a self confirmed Metrosexual, so I value the way women look and carry themselves.  Their choice in wardrobe is very important to me.

Each girl will be based on a scale of 1-5 for each category.  However, each girl only has 15 points to be spent on the four categories, so I had to choose carefully.  Read below how I rated all my crushes.

From artist Boo21190, whose stylized as Anna Rettberg has created quite possibly the best collection of television characters as they hang out.  I want to play a game with you, how many can you possibly name?  After staring intently for 2-3 minutes I was able to get about 21/26 [I included the three ships in the window, 27 if you can name that obscure building lol and 30 if you count the pets, one of which I’m guessing is Sabrina’s cat]  I’ll admit however that I can’t name the faces of all of them, but I know at least what show they’re from.  I dare you to do better.  Below after the jump is my answer key.  Only visit if you’ve counted up yourself

Lisbeth Salander is by likely by far my favorite fictional character in the universe. After reading her adventures in Stieg Larssonn’s novels, I went on to fall in love with Rooney Mara’s Oscar nominated performance and in response, fell in love with Mara herself. I even dedicated a large image gallery simply dedicated to the best Rooney Mara pictures I could dig up. So I decided to honor Ms. Salander with a image gallery of her own with Deviant Art’s best pictures. Be sure to visit the artists themselves, whose names are left on the image captions. I’ve even included my rendition, but it doesn’t compare to the masters of their crafts. I tried to stray away from direct images from movie inspirations and tried to stick to original depictions of the puzzling but lovable Lisbeth Salander.
