The Flickcast’s ‘On The Radar’

Welcome to this week’s On the Radar where we delve into all corners of the entertainment, tech and geek Internets for news, views and whatnot that may have escaped our regular coverage this week. Let is know if we missed something.

• Megan Fox is out of Transformers 3. Who will take her place? Heidi Montag or Ben Kingsley? Your guess is as good as ours.

• Speaking of replacing Megan Fox (only in the movie, not in our hearts) it looks like it may actually be this Victoria’s Secret model. Wonder what she had to wash to get the part?

• Patton Oswalt + Firefly + Comics = a nerdgasm the likes of which we’ve never seen.

• Who wouldn’t want to watch a video about Gwyneth Paltrow’s Shrimp Taco? There’s no further explanation necessary.

• Ever wonder what video games your favorite porn stars like to play? Well, wonder no more.

• What the hell is going on with Owen Wilson’s career? Pajiba breaks it down for us.

• NBC Exec Jeff Zucker runs a once-great network into the ground, and then gets a $30 million severance package. Ain’t life sweet?

• Finally, a comprehensive list of The Best and Worst Vampires in Film History…take that, shiny Robert Pattinson!

• Because Captain America is never meant to get his moment in the spotlight, new concept art surfaced of Chris Hemsworth as Thor.

• Keifer Sutherland may never play Jack Bauer again, which is OK. Now he can finally do that movie about a Werewolf Fight Club.

• We may have actually linked to the list of Best Innacurate Knock-Off Toys before, but Robert Cop and Spader-Man still get us every time.

• Because lists are just so much fun, check out The Best Fight Scenes You’ve Never Seen. Spoiler: we’ve seen all of them.

• Introducing The Inflatable Race Car For Wii. Because playing games while sitting in a pile of Cheetos and empty Mountain Dew cans wasn’t sad enough.

• James Cameron offers to help with the BP oil spill using his robots and stuff. Sure, why not? He couldn’t do any worse than BP.

• And last, but not least, ever wonder what happened to the Star Wars kid? No, not therapy for the rest of his life. This.
