Remember when we first heard the news of Roman Polanski’s God of Carnage and its cast? And we were a little skeptical and surprised that Matt Dillon was a part of it? Well someone seems to have been listening to me because Dillon is out and John C. Reilly is in!
Honestly, I couldn’t be more pleased with this bit of casting news. How awesome is John C. Reilly? He can do mumblecore comedy as in Cyrus. He can do straight comedy like in Step Brothers. He can do absurd comedy like Dr. Steve Brule. And he can do the dramatic too and since I can’t really differentiate the different types of drama, we’ll just make a blanket statement that he’s good and remind you that he was in Days of Thunder.
Now we have to figure out who Reilly will be paired off with. Our choices in the matter are Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster. Honestly, I see it going toward Foster because the Winslet and Christoph Waltz makes slightly more sense but I actually want to see Reilly and Winslet paired up. For some reason that makes me laugh. But who am I kidding, Polanski is a crazy man. He could pair up Waltz and Reilly. Its not like the man could harm his reputation further.
John C. Reilly's Phone Troubles: Late Last Night
Last night, John C. Reilly talked to Jay Leno about Australian animals that like to eat body parts. But those guys aren’t even the most dangerous. Turns out, koala bears are terribly scary! And kangaroos, that trick you into liking them until you run out of treats to give them.
And then he told Jay about a time when his arms fell asleep and he couldn't answer the phone. So what does he do? Use a bluetooth device? Can't, this was probably in the seventies. Could he have put the call on speaker phone? Nope, because seriously, the seventies didn’t do anything good for us except create the concept of anonymous sex. So again, what does he do? Watch and find out.
Jon Stewart took time out of his busy schedule of beating his female staff members and stapling their fingers together until they give him good ideas to make up for the fact they have lady parts (I’m only kidding – I’m on team Daily Show) to talk about how NASA people are “reaching out” to the Muslim world. Not only did this send Conservative networks into overdrive, it got them talking like Raggedy Ann.

And John Oliver talked about how Queen Elizabeth II came to New York City for the first time in more than thirty years. But what was the point? After that much time, one would think she’d just stop caring about us altogether after pretending to for so long.
