Seen that episode of "30 Rock," where James Franco is having a full-on clandestine relationship
with a Japanese anime body pillow? Yeah, well, in support of the
age-old-adage of truth trumping fiction in the strange department, it turns out
that's actually a not-as-uncommon-as-you'd-think phenomenon in Japan.
The email didn't go out of its way to explain itself. ALEC BALDWIN, appearing at the fabled JFK Forum at Harvard University's storied Kennedy School of Government, as a guest of the Institute of Politics. In conversation with no less an interlocutor than New York Times National Editor RICK BERKE (who admitted to staying up late the night before to watch It's Complicated on DVD).
NY Mag's Vulture blog tracked down 30 Rock producer Robert Carlock -- a former Harvard Lampoon editor, and thus someone who should know better -- to take him to task for what may be the world's worst Boston accent in a generation. You won't believe this: the guy had the balls to say that Julianne Moore sounds like an actual Bostonian!
