Spring Training Is Here

Spring training is finally here. Or as it's known in Chicago, the best day of the year because the rest of the season will be pure misery.

The red band trailer has been release for Seth Rogen's upcoming comedy, Observe and Report. Anna Faris, Michael Pena and Ray Liotta co-star in the dark comedy. Please be aware that Seth does not have his usual Jewfro.

Here's a look at the numbers for 2010 Senate candidates.
The best: Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) hasn't had a real race since he won his seat in 1986, but he continues to stockpile cash as if he is a prime Democratic target. Shelby's $13.4 million war chest is the biggest of any incumbent on the board for 2010 and is sure to attract lots of attention from National Republican Senatorial Committee operatives seeking to separate him from some of that cash. Sens. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) and Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) are the only other members of the $10 million cash-on-hand club: Bayh ended 2008 with $10.9 million in the bank, while Schumer, perhaps the best fundraiser in the Senate, closed the year with $10.6 million.
Universal picks up The Adventurer's Handbook.
Like the curly-headed love child of Seth Rogen and Jack Osborne, Jonah Hill has been hard at work, crafting himself a comedy script - filled with extreme travels across the globe. Now Universal have signed a seven-figure deal to acquire the film which will star Hill and fellow Apatow alumnus Jason Schwartzman.

The Adventurer's Handbook will follow four friends who take on an unbelievable journey across the globe, based around the true life exploits of hardcore explorers in a book by Mick Confrey.

Hill co-wrote the script with Matt Spicer and son of Henry, Max Winkler. All three are set to executive produce. Saturday Night Live and Hot Rod's Akiva Schaffer is in line to direct the project.
Not in the mood for a romantic-comedy this weekend? Try a bromantic movie instead!

Have a good Shabbas
