It would be the end of an era!

But what does he care? He's got the U.S. one now to occupy his time!

Although Simon Cowell has high hopes that he can get another year out of the X Factor UK with the current line-up of judges - Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos, Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh - he's apparently ready to put the axe in the series after that, so he can launch a new project in 2013!

He explains:

angry birds to hit one billion downloads

The crazy part is that they'll probably make it happen!

After passing the 250 million download mark for their Angry Birds games, Finnish company Rovio has their eyes set on one billion downloads!

Here's what the head of Rovio's brand marketing department, Wibe Wagemans, had to say about their ambitious goal with Angry Birds:

"This is something that even six months ago was unthinkable."

Guess we'll see if they're able to reach their goal before the next big app featuring bothered animals comes along.

Will it be Pissed Off Pandas? Aggravated Alligators? Furious Frogs?

…Enraged Emus??? LOLz!

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Producers Talk Production Woes

Filed under: Broadway Babies

spider man turn off the dark producers talk production woes

It's been a long, tough, challenging, and DANGEROUS road for the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark team!

The producers behind the cursed project have opened up, for the first time, about the treacherous road they've traveled with this production.

Here's what producer Jeremiah "Jere" Harris had to say about it:

“There's nothing easy on this show. From the time he and I took over and got involved, this has been a constant battle from every perspective.”

More from producer Michael Cohl:

“[The original story] was muddled [and] difficult to follow. It lacked emotion. It lacked spirit and sincerity."

"The reorganization makes it feel really good. The flying, the special effects, the beauty of the show, the Julie atmosphere and attitude — it's all staying."

"I am not the least bit embarrassed by any of this. And I know Jere isn't either. We tried to do something that's ambitious to the third power."

We certainly give them credit for taking on such an ambitious project, and we'd give them EVEN MORE credit if people hadn't been injured during the process.

Let's just hope it's smooth sailing from here on out…and we know that's A LOT to hope for!
