Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood Is Scoring Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Inherent Vice’

Also in the Afternoon Links: Chris Pratt says velociraptors are “the wolves of dinosaurs”; Clay Aiken is running for Congress; and Kendrick, Janelle, and Pharrell are performing at the NBA All-Star Game.

Guitarist Jonny Greenwood has been film god P.T. Anderson’s in-house composer since There Will Be Blood in 2007. That soundtrack — elegantly horror movie–ish to suit the terrifying character study of Daniel Plainview — became the thing I always listen to while reading anything remotely scary. P.T.A. and J.G. teamed again for The Master — equally phenomenal. Now they’re getting back together for Inherent Vice, Anderson’s Thomas Pynchon adaptation that should be out sometime this year.

Michael J. Fox already has plans to head back to The Good Wife.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are really writing and executive-producing an adaptation of Preacher. As I wrote when Preacher was rumored back in November, there’s no way the series isn’t going to cause a Category 5 controversy storm to slam directly into AMC.

Vaguely related: Former Mad Men writers/executive producers André and Maria Jacquemetton are adapting the DC comic DMZ for Syfy.

Gary Oldman is latest Star Wars casting rumor victim who will concede that “they’ve called.”

“What are you up to today?” “Nothing, just dressing up as a zombie to terrify New Yorkers in honor of the return of The Walking Dead.”

Ice-T: “I did this thing, I read an audio book for Audible … OK, they didn’t tell me that this was a motherfucking Dungeons and Dragons book. Now those of y’all out there that don’t know, Dungeons and Dragons is some crazy deep, deep, deep nerd shit. So every word is made up, motherfuckers talk like Yoda. How do you read this shit? It took me three and half hours to read 25 pages.” [via]

Jurassic World tidbits: It’ll be shot on real live film — partially 65 mm — and Chris Pratt says velociraptors are “like the wolves of dinosaurs.”

Kendrick Lamar, Janelle Monáe, and Pharrell will perform at the NBA All-Star Game on February 16. Based on how unreal Kendrick’s performance and Pharrell’s hat were at the Grammys — and how much Janelle puts into every single performance — it’ll be a treat.

Clay Aiken is running for Congress. Officially.

A post–Totally Biased–cancellation W. Kamau Bell is starting to get some tour dates cooking.

Aaron Paul, Michael B. Jordan, Gal Godot, and Michael Pena have joined Triple Nine, a heist thriller that already had Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, and Casey Affleck on board.

Lost’Evangeline Lilly may costar in Ant-Man. Evangeline Lilly needs some roles; we need to stop having to say she’s from Lost.

And here’s Tom Hanks catching up with Lieutenant Dan and Bubba.
