‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Teaser: So Style, Much Cool

Also in the Afternoon Links: Big Boi’s prophesied ‘Game of Thrones’ song, the latest and greatest ‘True Detective’ Easter egg, and the process behind Ryan Gosling’s dreamy directorial debut.

If you expected anything more from a Sin City sequel teaser than pure sleek pulp and a single gravelly utterance of the subtitle, these nine long years have warped your brain, friend. A Dame to Kill For will be as Robert Rodriguezy as movies get, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Josh Brolin, and Ray Liotta are along for the ride this time. (So are most of the sexy faces from the first one, including some who died. Excited to be excited to see you again, Mickey Rourke!)

Donald Glover says he’s returning to Community.

Lindsay Lohan is visiting 2 Broke Girls. All kindsa witty things one could say about that if one so chooses.

Macaulay Culkin’s going to play a Pizza Underground concert. In public. In another country (England). Bold, man.

Mary-Louise Parker, who I thought was retiring, is doing an NBC single-cam comedy pilot called Feed Me. It’s “a comedic exploration of adult intimacy and desire that centers on a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together.”

Michael Fassbender is a papier-mâché-headed rocker in Frank, which also features Maggie Gyllenhaal and Domhnall “I Was in Harry Potter But, More Importantly, Black Mirror” Gleeson. [via]

For Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster, the cast (Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes) was asked to work with a dream analyst. Ronan tells Vulture: “We would come in the next day to discuss our dreams with each other, and act them out … It was a very new method for me, because all of a sudden, Ryan was encouraging us to incorporate our own personalities into our characters, how you feel about things, what your anxieties are, and things like that.”

Lady Gaga playing SXSW, SXSW officially OVER!!

Oscar-nominated Captain Phillips screenwriter Billy Ray will write the Jonah Hill–Leo DiCaprio movie about Richard Jewell, the man who saved many Olympic spectators from a bomb in Atlanta in ’96. (Which was the subject of a recent 30 for 30 short.)

Grain o’ salt TMZ report: NBC wants stars to do The Tonight Show exclusively or not do it at all.

David Simon might do a six-episode Martin Luther King Jr. project for HBO. Oprah is a producer. Hope they make another mixtape.

The From Dusk Till Dawn show will be a Netflix Original … but not in the U.S.

And here’s Big Boi’s prophesied Game of Thrones track, in which he says “Fuck the Lannisters and everybody ride with ’em / Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch, finna slice some iron in ’em.” Wale’s song is here, plus a track list.
