For whatever reason, I often get Corey Stoll and Paul Scheer mixed up. It’s probably because they’ve both tall, white and bald. Also because I’m a racist. Regardless, only one of them is in talks for a role in Edgar Wright’s upcoming adaptation of Marvel’s Ant-Man. Hint hint: it’s the one with the better teeth.
Since making the move to Hollywood, Karen Gillan has been scooping up roles in her post-Doctor Who career. She’s appeared in the rom-com Not Another Happy Ending, the horror film Oculus, and now she’s joining the cast of Paul Scheer‘s NTSF:SD:SUV::. The live-action terrorism drama spoof airs on [adult swim] and also stars Rebecca Romijn and an eye-patch-wearing Kate Mulgrew, plus, obviously, Sheer. Deadline reports Gillan will play, “Daisy, the ‘Q’ tech expert of the NTSF:SD:SUV:: world.” NTSF:SD:SUV:: is expected to return in July, and filming has just begun on the show’s third season.
How do you like that? Karen will be back on American TV screens in no time, I know I’ve missed her. And I’m stoked to see her using those comedic chops. I’m also still holding out hope she’ll agree to appear on Inspector Spacetime.

NOTHING if SOPA & PIPA aren’t stopped. If these controversial pieces of legislation were to pass you could say goodbye to amusing collections of funny shit on the internet, like Nerdy Bits.
Above: The Joy of Tech illustrate the internet blackout of 2012, happening today in protest of the damaging legislation SOPA and PIPA. And while yes, the blackout could help get you laid, you won’t be able visit many of your favorite sites. Here’s a list of websites currently blacked out in protest. (Laughing Squid)
Don’t know what SOPA , or it’s sibling PIPA, are? Let’s educate! What is SOPA? by Gizmodo gives a great and easy to understand explanation. But so does this animated clip from The Oatmeal, and it involves jet skis and koala/goat love, making it much more amusing.
Do your part to stop SOPA and PIPA. As of now SOPA has been shelved, but it’s not dead, it could rear its ugly head again. PIPA, it’s Senate counterpart is still going strong. Call your senator and tell them you want to keep the internet a cool, hip place where we can laugh at Arnold Schwarzenegger parodies and Skyrim memes until we too take an arrow in the knee.
Please guys, do it for the LOLcats.
