Media Rushes to Keep Up with Latest Kim Kardashian Nude Spread

In terms of answered SEO prayers, it doesn’t get much better at the midpoint of the first work week of September for scrambling U.S. webmasters than “Kim Kardashian” + “Naked.”

The deliverer of this gift from the traffic gods is British GQ. Their 2014 Woman of the Year does a very good Beyonce impression, both on the cover and inside. Complex raves that the pictures snapped by Tom Munro “may be the sexiest we’ve ever seen.” E! Online suggests “post-baby Kim has still got it.” US Weekly declares “she’s a whole lotta woman.” And HollywoodLife leads with “no need for phone hacking.”

Variety reported on what will be the third film by Morgan about Blair. Previously, he had written “The Deal” about Blair’s stratospheric rise in British politics, followed by “The Queen” about the thorny relationship with Queen Elizabeth II.

Without trying to be too much like Oliver Stone, Morgan takes on Brit politics without the sledgehammer approach that Stone is so often fond of when it comes to things political.

Morgan will rely on actor Michael Sheen, who is gaining amazing fame as David Frost in “Frost/Nixon, to take on the Blair role. He played Blair in both earlier incarnates about the PM.

Bush is still a question mark. But Morgan, as he’s directing as well, could always at least approach Josh Brolin, who did stellar work as Bush in Stone’s “W.”
