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 interesting. Otherwise, on to the links!

• The Fantastic Four reboot is still happening, and now with a completely CG Thing.

• We can’t wait for Stone’s Social Network, but these parody posters are pretty damned entertaining as well.

• Because we love lists, Adult Swim brings us a list of the Most Invasive Surgeries on the network. Mind you, this is before Children’s Hospital aired.

Leonardo DiCaprio has passed on Mel Gibson’s viking picture. We can only imagine what that phone call sounded like.

• Want do get women like Don Draper? The Mad Men School of Seduction can help.

• The second half of Caprica‘s first season gets a trailer, and it looks pretty cool.

Zach Galifiniakis‘ Between Two Ferns is back with new guest Steve Carell. We won’t ruin it, but the line “The only French word you know is Buffet” made us pee a little bit.

• Contrary to popular belief, the new Hawaii Five-O is going to be quite different. Sadly, that means we may not get “book ’em” in the dialogue.

• Ellen Degeneres has announced that she’s no longer going to judge American Idol. Her replacement? Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. This is called “trading up.”

• Love Doctor Who and the ladies? (No, those are not mutually exclusive.) Good because here’s a list of the ten hottest Doctor Who companions.

• From the “bed decisions” department comes word that Laurence Fishburne’s daughter has decided that doing a porn film is a great career move. Daddy must be so proud. Can a Matrix porn parody be far behind?

• Finally, because we love Mad Men and booze, here’s a little video that highlights all the great scenes in the show where men, you know, drink. Surprise, there’s a lot of them. Cheers!
