Evil Dead was given a NC-17 rating; fitting

Apparently they still dole out the NC-17 rating here in the states and the Evil Dead remake just scored it after the MPAAs initial judgment. The film’s director, Fede Alvarez, went to Twitter and seemed pretty happy about it as he should be. After seeing the initial trailer he has removed the cheese and went for the over the top gore and fright factor. It works in every way and he should be proud of it.

Fede Alvarez @fedalvar

@WoozyTribe Was proud of scoring a NC17 when submitted! But we had to cut stuff out to get an R and get the film into theaters.

Of course he had to make a cut of the film so that it achieved an R rating here so that as many people as possible can see it in theatres. Like the 13 year-old shit head middle school kids that you immediately hate as soon as you see them walking in to the theatre.  -J

The Walking Hines Ward

Hines Ward was forced into retirement by the Pittsburgh Steelers before this past season. Well, not officially really but seriously? Come on. (Should I put a Super Bowl reference in here just to get some extra hits?) That hasn’t kept him from getting his Cheshire Cat grin more TV time. First it was NBC to do football commentary and then it was on to Rachel vs Guy: Celebrity Cook Off. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, he’s going to be a zombie on the second half of season three of The Walking Dead. How did he get this part? Let’s use Ward’s own words?

A former Georgia teammate of mine is one of the stars of the show, and my agent thought it would be something fun and different for me to do

Who is this star you might ask? It’s T-Dog who is famous for, um, well, being a black man and making it to season three of a show that kills off regular characters at a high frequency. They won’t get to act together since The Walking Dead has an unofficial rule where you can only have one black guy at a time so T-Dog got killed off in the first half of season 3. Tyresse will be taking over the reigns in the black character department. I wonder if Hines will get to eat his brains for taking over his friend’s spot? -Kevin
