Scarlett Johansson To Play Sex Addict Alien

Awesome casting news of the day. Scarlett Johansson has signed on for Under the Skin, a sci-fi film directed by Jonathan Glazer who did Sexy Beast. “Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey — her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes."

Sofia Vergara Drops Some Cleavage And Gets Ultra Curvy For Kmart.

Here’s the bodaciously hot Sofia Vergara dropping my jaw with a shwingtastic display of her uber hotness, awesome cleavage, and wicked curves… for Kmart. Yeah, I didn’t believe the photo description either, but it’s true. And it is so freaking hoooooot! Good lord, will you get a load of those rollercoaster curves!? What am I saying? You cats are probably too busy drooling over the photos that you’re not even read this. And I don’t blame you. Anyways, enjoy!

Irina Shayk Doesn’T Shave Her Legs

Russian model Irina Shayk, mostly famous these days for being the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model, was out in LA yesterday looking slightly less sexy than she did in the magazine. Mostly because she doesn’t shave her legs. And if she doesn’t shave her legs, her bush must be an abomination. If I’m dating a supermodel, her vagina better look like it was drawn on with a pencil.

Tigers Whores Are Stealing From Each Other

TMZ has learned a Tiger Woods mistress got the shaft off set as well as on -- while shooting a Tiger porn spoof -- because she claims another mistress stole all her money while she wasn't looking. Joslyn James -- mistress 11 -- says she was on the San Fernando Valley set for Vivid's upcoming porn "Three Mistresses" when another mistress in the skin flick allegedly went into her purse and snatched a $100 bill, a bracelet and a cell phone. Joslyn tells us she's on her way to file a police report, fingering Devon James ... mistress 15. Joslyn claims Devon was in the dressing room with full access to her purse while she was shooting the scene. We could not reach Devon for comment. Police are on the hunt.

PHOTOGRAPHY & EYE CANDY

Unseen Images Of A Lost London

They are a remarkable window onto a bygone age. A snapshot of a city in transition - with horse-drawn carts and cobbled streets replaced by a booming industrial revolution. Lost in the archives of English Heritage for 25 years, these never-before published images have now been compiled into a book. From Victorian London to the devastation of two world wars, they provide a unique record of a vanishing way of life in the capital. Here, CLAIRE COHEN compares the London of a century ago with photographs taken at the same locations today.

122 Brilliant and Blinding Blow Outs

99.99% of our photography falls within a certain acceptable range of exposure—one filled with color and detail. Last week's Shooting Challenge was dedicated to the rare .01% that's blinded by the light. The resulting shots are incredible.

Living With The Dead

In the center of the crowded Philippine capital of Manila, home to more than 11 million people, lies the North Cemetery. The final resting place of several Filipino Presidents, celebrities, and hundreds of thousands of the city’s Catholic dead, the cemetery is also home to a living community of over 2,000 people. In a country where around 40 percent of people live below the poverty line, and overpopulation in Manila is reaching desperate proportions, the cemetery provides a unique residence for the hundreds of families that live and work within its walls.

The Immortal Bridge

Mount Tai in the Shandon Province, China has had cultural and religious significance for thousands of years. It is one of the five sacred mountains of China and is associated with the dawn, birth and renaissance. As you progress up the mountain you will come across this – The Immortal Bridge. The Immortal Bridge is composed of three huge rocks and several smaller ones. Below it is a valley and to the south is a seemingly bottomless abyss. No one knows quite when these enormous rocks fell in to their current place but it is quite likely they have been like this since the last ice age.

Viva Los Hoons! Jalopnik Reader Buys Mexican Focus RS

Remember the lime green 2010 Ford Focus RS for sale in Mexico? One of our readers bought it and will be importing it to the US. To say we're jealous would be like saying the sun's warm. Complete story below. Our new best friend who should totally let us go for a drive when he gets the car legalized wishes to remain anonymous, but he was kind enough to provide full details about how he was able to purchase a not-for-US Import Focus RS and exactly what kind of car lunatic he is.

95 Years of Chevy Pickup History

It started with a simple idea: a few car chassis fitted with hand-built beds to help carry materials around a booming car factory. Before long, millions of Chevrolet pickups were woven into the fabric of a fast-growing country. Chevy trucks tackled the toughest jobs on farms and in the fields; hauled tools and lumber to the burgeoning suburbs; and carried families and friends into and out of the wilds for well-earned vacations. “The legacy that Chevrolet trucks have built over the last 95 years is important to protect,” said Don Johnson, Chevrolet’s vice president of sales and service. “The best way for us to do that is by delivering the capability and technology our customers have grown to expect, in both our current trucks and in our next generation of full-size pickups."

Automotive X Prize Winner Gets 102.5 MPG

It may look odd, but the ultralight Edison2 Very Light Car gets 102.5 mpg, it does so with good old-fashioned internal combustion and it’s just won the Progressive Automotive X Prize. The Very Light Car was among three innovative, if unusual, automobiles that shared the $10 million pot the X Prize promised to whomever built a production-ready vehicle capable of getting 100 mpg or its equivalent. Progressive Automotive X-Prize officials announced the winners today in Washington, D.C., some 30 months after the competition began. “We’ve seen a shift in the market since we first launched this competition, and a greater awareness by people everywhere to think more seriously about the actions we take, and how they affect our environment,” Peter Diamandis, chairman and CEO of the X Prize Foundation, said. “Gas mileage ranks as one of our top concerns when purchasing a new vehicle and I believe strongly that the innovations showcased throughout the life of this competition will continue to impact and improve our car buying options for the future.”

Shootout Tests Low-priced, High-mileage Cars

Ideal cars for the times. A handful of the best compacts, not very expensive, not very thirsty, big enough for a family. And surprisingly well-equipped. High fuel prices and a slow economy are making such cars hot but also raising sales prices. So Cars.com and USA TODAY pitted compact sedans meeting strict price and mileage requirements in our latest head-to-head Shootout to help you pick a winner for your garage before car prices get even higher. The Under 20/Over 35 Shootout judged five cars priced at less than $20,000, before shipping, and rated at more than 35 miles per gallon on the highway. As usual — to make sure the Shootouts have a real-life connection — a family, as well as Cars.com and USA TODAY experts, judged the cars. And that began swimmingly. The low-price, high-mileage compacts increasingly impressed family judge Frani Udell, a working mom from Northbrook, Ill., who hasn't been car shopping lately. Her regular ride is a 2008 Toyota Highlander crossover SUV, and she was self-conscious about how impressed she was with the 2011 Hyundai Elantra, a brand and model she said she'd have dismissed out-of-hand before she got this close look. In fact, she'd have written off all five before this chance to see, sit and pilot.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

Portland Rocks Down To Electric Avenue

In partnership with utility companies and, we imagine, with a little inspiration from Eddy Grant, the city of Portland has unveiled an “electric avenue” where EVs can plug in while parked. Located on the campus of Portland State University, on Southwest Montgomery Street between Southwest Broadway and Southwest Sixth Avenue, the stretch of road features five 240-volt, Level 2 charging stations which can recharge most EVs from empty in four to six hours. There’s also a single rapid charging station that can recharge compatible vehicles in under a half hour. We can only imagine the future episode of Portlandia featuring a couple Leaf drivers getting into a fist fight over who gets to plug in to the quick charger. At yesterday’s opening ceremonies, vehicles that plugged in included a Nissan Leaf, Tesla Roadster, Chevy Volt, Ford Transit Connect, Smith Newton, Mitsubishi iMiEV, Toyota Prius Plug-In and Arcimoto’s new Darkwing.

World's First Luxury Villa With Amusement Park Sized Water Slide

If you were planning a luxurious tropical retreat drenched with gorgeous evening sunsets and endless lazing afternoons accompanied with generous and lavish care, then this one is fashioned just for you. Lulu Holidays, a Hong Kong-based holiday company, has inaugurated the world’s first luxury holiday villa equipped with an amusement park sized water slide in Koh Samui, Thailand. The landscaped property spread across 600 square meters has five bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Three of these bathrooms have large Jacuzzis and picture windows to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Apart from a comfortable living and dining space the games room contains an 8ft. pool table, foosball table and a variety of other popular games including an outdoor ping-pong table. The stunning 92 square meter infinity pool is where you can have maximum fun and adventure. The pool has an amazing 78-meter long double loop slide plunging directly from the top-floor balcony to the pool.

Nintendo Wii Proton Pack

Straight from Egon's lab, after months of Beta testing I bring to you the first ever fully fictional Wii-Proton Pack to be used in conjunction with the Nintentdo Wii version of the Ghostbusters Video game. The cyclotron features four blue LEDs allowing you to know which player is selected or active and the Blue Power Cell actually shows you how much power the pack has. The Thrower has been carefully designed in regards to ergonomics and function. The front of the wand has an area in which you can place the Wii-mote and the back handle is where the Nunchuck is placed. Since the Wii-mote has in internal speaker in it's ABS housing, when playing the game the pack makes all the iconic Ghostbusters SFX. And being that the Wii utilizes wireless technology, the wand is not tethered to the pack via a cord. I will be shooting some video footage this week and will post it as soon as it's finished so you can see the pack in action!

How To Make Your Own Prison Wine

I don’t plan on going to prison any time soon, but if I do somehow end up there I’d at least like to be prepared. I’d imagine that a day in the life as a new prisoner can be quite stressful, and what better way is there to relax after a long day of making license plates and trying not to get shanked than with a nice glass of wine? Since prisons ban all alcoholic beverages however many inmates have taken to making their own wine, or “pruno” as it’s often called. There are plenty of different pruno recipes out there, but I decided to use the most popular one, which is attributed to a man named Jarvis Masters, who is currently on death row at San Quentin State Prison. Making prison wine is actually surprisingly easy, and all you really need is a one gallon plastic bag, ten oranges, eight ounces of fruit cocktail, some sugar cubes, six teaspoons of ketchup and a towel.
