First The PW Beefcake, Then The PW News


The impossibly perfect person Patrick Wilson has been swallowed up by a television program I can't stomach - even if they did do the right thing and get him out of his clothes a few times, as these until-now unposted shots seen above, plus ones here and more here, can attest to - so he doesn't really need to keep making movies if he didn't want to. But there he was, very fine in Young Adult, and he'll be in Ridley Scott's Prometheus in a small role (I think) too. Anyway I'm glad to hear he's still snapping up movie roles and not getting lazy and resting on his weekly paycheck laurels (cough Nathan Fillion cough). The new news: he's probably re-hooking up with his Insidious director James Wan for that true-story paranormal investigators movie I told you about way back in December. Says THR:

"Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are in final negotiations to star in The Conjuring, a supernatural thriller from New Line.

The casting will reteam Wilson with director James Wan, who directed the actor in Insidious, another supernatural creepfest that was one last year's most profitable movies.

In Conjuring, written by Chad and Carey Hayes, Wilson and Farmiga will play a husband and wife team of demonologists and psychic investigators who enter the most horrifying case of their career, spirits in a Rhode Island farmhouse.

The story is based on the real life tale of the Perron family and their ordeals in the 1970s. When New Line acquired the pitch from the Hayes, it included life rights to the Perron family and the paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

A March shoot in North Caroline is being eyed."

These Warren people gained the majority of their notoriety because of the Amityville Horror house, which they investigated first. They've been deemed frauds time and again. Since I don't believe in ghosts or spirits or anything like that I'm prone to agree, but that doesn't mean I won't have a fun time watching oogie-boogies pop out at Patrick and Vera in a movie all the same. Okay, back to the beefcake!

Biggest. Celeb. Crush. Ever.

And yet, I couldn't even get through ONE episode of A Gifted Man. Why couldn't his gift just be his body, and the whole show be him walking around naked? I'd watch that.

I enjoy Gifted.
