The impossible is happening on America's most important reality show. Elsewhere in showbiz news today: Robert Pattinson gets a new gig, we're importing yet another British show, World War Z sounds both good and bad, and there's hope for Revolution yet.
The CW has announced that it's picked up Tyra Banks' occult drama America's Next Top Model for a mind-melting 20th season, to air next summer. So, OK, ho hum, more weird spells cast by Tyra Banks and her strange army of silvery gays. Been there done that. Except! Aha! There's a twist: This season, for the first time ever, there will be male model contestants competing with the girls! That's crazytown. Whole new game. Things are gonna get real. And by "real" we mean OMG maybe there will be another Bronnie situation. That would be lovely. Please, dear Tyra sorceress. Make that happen. [The Hollywood Reporter]
Now that his personal life is all patched up, English sex vampyr Robert Pattinson is getting back to work. He's just signed on to play a supporting role in a movie called Hold On To Me, a based-on-a-true-story drama about a woman (Carey Mulligan) and her boyfriend who kidnap the town's richest man and then everything goes to hell. Pattinson will not be playing the boyfriend, but rather some other guy. Don't worry though, the role is described as "flashy." Anyway, this sounds like a perfectly fine idea. Good to keep working and all that, especially when it's with someone like Carey Mulligan. And the director did Man On Wire, so he knows what he's doing. Smart thinking, Pattinson! He should book as many post-Twilight roles as he can now, before people figure out that, um, well, he's not the greatest of actors. Of course he will get better! But, y'know, still... Anyway.
