+ There's a new 3 1/2 minute preview for the upcoming series of "Heroes," subtitled "Road to Redemption." It looks like this:
+ Say you're having a perfectly good day and you have nothing to worry about. Well, the new @AsteroidWatch at Twitter can fix that for you. Follow @AsteroidWatch and they'll let you know anytime a large heavenly body is careening toward Earth. (That is not a fat joke.) I assume their site will be sponsored by Xanax.
+ Uh oh, there's been a casting shake-up on the new "Twilight" movie with the role of Victoria. Rachelle Lefevre got the glittery boot and has been replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard.
+ Aint It Cool has an interview with "Independence Day" producer Roland Emmerich about his new film, "2012," a small, quiet, character-driven film about the intricacies of the Mayan calendar. And when I say "small" and "quiet," I of course mean "it will make your ears bleed." I saw the preview before "Harry Potter" the other night and seriously, it has the John F. Kennedy aircraft carrier crashing into The White House during a tsunami. I'm serious. And yes, I will be seeing it.
+ Beware, the next time you play "World of Warcraft" and that elf next to you "just wants to talk," chances are he could be a therapist. A London psychiatrist has proposed getting therapists to work with gaming addicts from within their virtual worlds. You know what's going to happen, right? The therapists are going to get addicted and then it'll be just like "Stargate" with everyone following everyone else in all willy-nilly. It should be pretty awesome. The article includes this helpful depiction of a "WoW" character photoshopped onto a couch with a very tall therapist pointing at him and judging.
+ IO9 has a review of the first episode of the new series, "V" and they seem to like it, which is shocking because, well, since when did IO9 ever like anything?
+ And finally, here's an interview with Eric Bana about his role in the new Judd Apatow movie, "Funny People." Much as I love Eric Bana (I still cry when Hector gets dragged around the walls of Troy by that bastard Achilles in "Troy")(and yes, I own "Troy" because there's nothing wrong with a woman of a certain age owning DVDs of men in leather sandles and breastplates)(right?), this will likely be the only one of his movies I see this year. I can only handle about 15 seconds of "The Time Traveler's Wife" preview before I want to vomit. And on that note, happy Thursday everyone!
