George Lucas Wanted to Direct ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′

Last month, George Lucas was asked if he had seen the ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’ trailer, and what his reaction was. He said he hadn’t watched the ‘Force Awakens’ trailer, had no plans to and was “not really” interested in the movie. We made him sad, we wrote at the time. But, maybe it wasn’t us that made him sad. While out promoting his new animated movie ‘Strange Magic’, Lucas reveals that he himself wanted to direct ‘Star Wars: Episode 7’.

Ohio State Defeats Oregon 42-20 for College Football National Championship [Video]

Even with a third-string quarterback, Ohio State was better than an Oregon team led by a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.

Backup quarterback Cardale Jones completed 16-of-23 passes for 242 yards and a touchdown with an interception and ran for another touchdown and sophomore tailback Ezekiel "Zeke" Elliott ran for 246 yards and four touchdowns as the fourth-seeded Buckeyes defeated the second-seeded Ducks 42-20 in the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday night in Arlington, Texas.

The victory gave Ohio State (14-1), the Big Ten Conference champion, its eighth national championship.

R.I.P. Taylor Negron — One of the ‘Fame-ish’ People [Video]

A stand up comic, playwright, painter, and sometimes actor, Taylor Negron often joked that he wasn't famous, he was "fame-ish", meaning that he wasn't quite a celebrity, but he had done just enough to have people quote lines from "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" and "Better Off Dead" to him all the time.

He also loved to speak publicly about living life to the fullest, and that's what I'll remember him for most.

President Barack Obama: ‘If I Was a Lions Fan, I’d Be Pretty Aggravated’

For angry, heartbroken Detroit Lions fans there isn't much consolation.

The NFL admitted to blowing a pass interference call and missing an offensive holding call in Sunday's game vs the Cowboys, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Dallas then squeaked by Detroit 24-20 with a game-winning touchdown drive, knocking the Lions out of the playoffs.

Well, thanks for being honest, NFL. But it doesn't change the outcome of the game. What's done is done-- The Lions are done this year.

For what it's worth, President Barack Obama says he gets it.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘The Woman in Black’ Can’t Stop ‘The Hobbit’

After the jam-packed month of December, with its huge family-friendly blockbusters and awards season Oscar bait, we have arrived in the month of January. Formerly a dumping ground for mediocre films, the month has taken on a new identity in the past few years as a testing ground for unique genre films (think ‘Cloverfield’) and a solid place to release a horror movie, which seems to do quite well right around New Year’s for whatever reason. This year, we have ‘The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,’ which had a fairly solid opening. Not solid enough to topple the Christmas Week champions, but no one is complaining too much.
