Afternoon Delight: Amber Heard cools herself off for Guess, Kristen Wiig joins “Anchorman” sequel

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to Barbara Hershey, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Laura Linney and Vivian Wu!

Out actress Amber Heard shoves a handful of ice down her shirt for GUESS Girl Fragrance. (After my wife watched the below commercial she did a slow clap and told me she now wants to buy Guess Girl. And ice cubes.)

Tina Fey will team up with Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore for the comedy The Nest. The film is about “two thirty-something sisters who spend one last crazy weekend in their childhood home before selling it.” Fey will play one of the sisters. Who do you think should play her sibling?

Queen Latifah is joining forces with Netflix. The movie-streaming media source has signed a licensing deal with Latifah’s production company Flavor Unit Entertainment. Starting in Spring 2013 Netflix will have the first opportunity to stream movies from Flavor Unit after they are released in theaters.

Over the weekend, our gay brother Ian McKellen (aka Gandalf) received an honorary doctorate from the University of Ulster. Here’s an excerpt from Dr. McKellen’s super gay acceptance speech:

“Thanks to every gay person in public and nonpublic life who has come out. Thanks to those politicians not in thrall to those constituents who cling to the status quo and who, given referenda, would happily reinstate capital punishment and the beating of children. Thanks most perhaps to the cherished national belief that an Englishman—and an Irishman’s—home is his castle and that the state has no business interfering in their bedrooms. Every rotten antigay law has been repealed, shaken down from the constitutional tree. So complete is the reversal, that we even have the anomaly of civil partnerships which are not available to heterosexuals and uniquely benefit the gays!”

Kristen Wiig has officially signed on for Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Dreams do come true!
