We previously mentioned that Bradley Cooper was interested in playing Lance Armstrong in the upcoming biopic helmed by director J.J. Abrams.

That apparently is totally false.

At Sunday's SAG Awards, Bradley was interviewed about the biopic rumors and said:

Terminally Ill Star Trek Fan For Whom J.J. Abrams Screened New Movie Has Passed Away

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.InspirationSad Sad

A bittersweet, yet profoundly powerful testament to what a small act of kindness can mean to so many.

Only a few short days after terminally ill Star Trek fan Dan Craft's story went viral and prompted director J.J. Abrams to treat he and his wife to a special rough-cut screening of the sequel Star Trek Into Darkness months before its official premiere, the New York Asian Film Festival organizer has passed away.

According to a message on the Festival's Facebook page:

Last night around 10:15pm, Dan Craft, who has been a member of Subway Cinema since 2004, passed away. His wife and brother were with him when he went, and he wasn’t in any pain. He’d been a bit loopy for a few days as his liver failed and toxins built up in his blood, and on Thursday his wife asked him if he needed to go to the bathroom. “I’m going…” he proclaimed, “Into the future.”

See you there, Dan.

Dan Craft: 1971 – 2013

We miss you.

We can't even begin to tell you how choked up - and inspired - this man's bravery and strength in the face of his own death makes us.

We just hope that his wife, friends, and all his loved one can find comfort and peace knowing that he left this world right after having been given such an incredible act of generosity and compassion that clearly meant so much to him in last days.

May your future be filled with the wonder that J.J.'s film - and the entire franchise - inspired in you, Dan.

And check out a full account of his Star Trek Into Darkness viewing experience, as recounted by his friend on RedditAFTER THE JUMP!!!

Joel McHale Sports Wood With Jennifer Lawrence At Movie Awards

Who says there’s no place for a TV star at a Movie Awards show??

We have a silly sketch for you (above) from Sunday's 2012 MTV Movie Awards, with Community's Joel McHale playing Lester Boonshaft — archery guru to the stars.

Jennifer Lawrence, winner of two delicious-looking buckets of Golden Popcorn, and J.J. Abamas were also featured in the skit that poked fun at Game of Thrones, Hawkeye of The Avengers, and — obvi — Katniss Everdeen.

The clip isn't exactly HIGHlarious but McHale is as charming as always and Lawrence talks about her “tits"!!!

So, yeah, we recommend it!!

RIP The Finder And Alcatraz!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzGlee

Alcatraz and the finder canceled

The Finder and Alcatraz fans, we're sorry for your loss.

Fox has officially announced the two freshman drama series will NOT be getting a second season.

Unlike the show's Lost-esque plot, Alcatraz's cancellation wasntotally predictable. The J.J. Abrams show suffered from dwindling ratings, and now the 4 people that watched it will never get their questions answered! SADFACE!

At least the nerds Abrams Sci-Fi fans still have Fringe!

Fox isn't just giving their dramas the boot. Comedies Breaking In and I Hate My Teenage Daughter have also been axed from their line up.

On the bright side, at least they still have Glee!!

Sweet! This already looks BEYOND awesome!

Production on J.J. Abrams' sequel to his seriously rad reboot of Star Trek has only just begun, but two photos apparently leaked from the set have surfaced on-line, and they are even slightly SPOILERIFIC!

Ch-ch-check out Zachary Quinto as Spock using what we believe to be the VULCAN NERVE PINCH on the villain, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and Zoe Saldana as Uhura with her phaser pointed (above)!

YES! YES! YES!

We cannot WAIT for this!

How about U?
