During a recent interview with Wired Magazine Hawking revealed “My ideal role would be a baddie in ‘James Bond.’ I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part.”

More information about the upcoming twenty-fourth James Bond movie are set to be released this coming Thursday. It is strongly rumored that actor Christoph Waltz will be playing the villain in the upcoming film, but we suppose they could always squeeze Hawking in there too!  Why not?

Cowardly Lion Costume From The Wizard Of Oz Sells For $3 Million

Cowardly-Lion1

(PCM) Talk about making a pop culture pay day, the infamous Cowardly Lion costume worn by actor Burt Lahr in the classic film “The Wizard Of Oz” sold for over $3 million dollars at a recent Bonham’s auction in New York City.

Auctioned off at Bonhams’ Turner Classic Movie Presents… There’s No Place Like Hollywood, the Cowardly Lion costume is verified as the same costume worn by Bert Lahr during the 1939 production of the classic, The Wizard of Oz.

Made of real lion hides, the costume was discoverd folded and tucked away in one of the oldes buildings on MGM’s lot and was aqcuired by The Comisar Collection and owned by Los Angelos TV founder James Comisar.

Several lion costumes were created for the production of The Wizard of Oz but the costume department ran into issues with consistency; most lion hides have distinct swirls and patterns, making it hard to have a uniform lion costume.

As a result, Lahr had to wear the same costume for every day of production, requiring the costume department to dry the costume every night in an industrial sized dryer in order to dry out all of the sweat produced by Lahr under the bright Technicolor production lights.

According to the New York Daily News, the face is sculpted to the likeness of the late actor and according to a spokesperson for costume owner James Comisar, there was a secondary costume that was used in the film that also recently sold at auction for over $1 million dollars.

Comisar says that he plans to use the money that he received from selling the Cowardly Lion costume to further invest in his exhibit and collection of TV memorabilia that includes items from “I Love Lucy” and “Lost” to name a few.

The Softer Side Of Celebrities

(PCM) It is not everyday that we get a chance to report on the softer and more human side of celebrity culture. Most of the time the focus seems to be on the latest celebrity legal scandal, relationship woes, and fashion, essentially the superficial elements. Recently, two celebrities made headlines by showcasing their more human side.

Tom-Hanks2

The story about actor Tom Hanks and the NYC cab driver was one such story. A cab driver was traveling down Park Ave at the end of his shift and noticed a passenger attempting to hail a cab.

When he pulled over to talk to the passenger, he at first told him no because the passenger needed to get to 47th street which was way further away than the driver wanted to be at the end of his day. When the passenger looks disappointed, the cab driver had a change of heart and decided to make the trek out of the kindness of his heart.

It turns out that as the very thankful passenger who was chatting away with the cab driver was none other than Tom Hanks!  Once the cab driver made the realization he yelled out “WILSONNN!!” and he and Hanks, who starred in the film “Castaway” had a good laugh over the character reference.

Being the super-friendly guy that he is Hanks even agreed to pose for a selfie with the cab driver and also invited him out to a viewing of his new play “Lucky Guy”, as well as, greeted him backstage at the performance. Kind of an ironic title for the show, don’t you think?

Other such heartwarming celebrity story comes from American Badass himself Kid Rock, who recently made a very touching and surprise visit for one of his number one fans birthday celebrations.

Dan McGurk has Down’s Syndrome and has made it no secret that he is truly Kid Rock’s number one fan. He and his family tireless worked to get an invitation out to Kid Rock to attend his 30th birthday party which was held at Clarkson Union Restaurant in Clarkson, Michigan.

McGurk even made a YouTube video in hopes of garnering Kid Rock’s attention and it looks like it worked. Rock showed up to the party and the look of utter surprise on McGurk’s face was absolutely priceless and adorable.

Kid Rock sang “Happy Birthday” to McGurk and presented him with a limited edition photo, hat ,an autographed custom Kid Rock guitar and of course tickets to an upcoming show.
