If you’re going through Girls withdrawal (it’s been almost a month since the season ended), the Tribeca Film Festival has just the methadone you’re looking for. Not only do a couple of the show’s producers appear in Very Semi-Serious and Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead (Bruce Eric Kaplan is also a New Yorker cartoonist and Judd Apatow is a National Lampoon fan) but Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet are the leads in Hungry Hearts and Bleeding Heart, respectively. Both are dark psychological thrillers in which the characters get caught up with a deeply disturbed romantic partner and run to their parents for help. Spoiler alert: neither of these films end well. But are either of them heart-worthy?
Magnolia Is Giving Away Cupcakes in Honor of Justin Timberlake’s Birthday Because, Uh…
If you bring your MasterCard to Magnolia Bakery today, you’ll get a free cupcake in honor of Justin Timberlake’s 33rd birthday. No, they don’t have Justin’s face on them (we asked), but the promotion maybe makes sense? Timberlake has a two-year, multi-million dollar endorsement deal with MasterCard. Plus his pal Andy Samberg, a guest at JT and Jessica Biel’s wedding, penned “Lazy Sunday” — a tribute to the bakery with “all the bomb frostings” — before going on to co-star with Timberlake in “Dick in a Box.” AND Biel apparently enjoys making cupcakes for Timberlake. PLUS using letters in Timberlake’s last name, you can form words such as “eat,” “bake,” and “milk.”
