Happy August and Everything After!

* Get on your American Hustle David O Russell’s newest flick featuring both Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper from his Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook, together with Christian Bale and Amy Adams, are back with way cooler 70s hairstyles in the fictional story based on the real-life FBI sting known as Abscam. Add this to the ever-growing pile of must-see movies filling up the second half of 2013.

* The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has a new president – a woman at that. Hooray! Marketing exec Cheryl Boone Isaacs is the first African-American and third woman to head the 86-year old organization. Get to know her better with this Q-and-A with  from The Hollywood Reporter.

* Game of Thrones author George RR Martin has previewed an excerpt of a new novella titled  A Song of Ice and Fire, that will be released as part of a fantasy fiction anthology in December, which has a “higher body-count than Hamlet.” Would we expect anything less from GRRM?

* Longtime Pearl Jam producer Brendan O’Brien, who’s worked with the band on their forthcoming release Lightning Bolt, reveals that frontman Eddie Vedder still uses the same typewriter he’s been using for 20 years. Sometimes the way my laptop acts, I feel like I’ve been using it for the same amount of time too.

* Two big changes to Parks & Recreation – as Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe announce they aren’t sticking around, and they’ll make their exits on the season’s thirteenth episode, which will probably air in February. But there are rumours Mr Lowe may be getting his own TV show, so all may not be lost.

Ooh, and as an extra bonus because it is a new month after all – spend some time with Peter Dinklage as Boliver Trask at Trask Industries, in preparation for X-Men: Days of Future Past.
