33109657.jpgJack Bauer To Go To Jail? Actor Kiefer Sutherland pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor DUI charge, opening up the possibility that the 24 actor could end up behind bars for 48 days. The guy wormed his way out of a Chinese torture boat; we have a feeling he’ll sidestep County.

33110691.jpgFor More On the Back of Elizabeth Snead’s Head, Check Out The Envelope: We’re all for Web sites adding more video, but we can’t decide what’s more interesting in this video, Ben Affleck’s comments, or the brassy tint of Elizabeth Snead’s weave.

wp_pod_72x72.jpgFunny Can Be Beautiful, Too: The hi-larious sounding Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood is accusing Unilever of hypocrisy for running Dove ads that praise women’s natural beauty, while also running ads for Axe body spray featuring women making asses out of themselves to get that fragrant guy. “Unilever spokeswoman Anita Larson said the Axe ads were clearly spoofs,” according to the story. But CFC, apparently, can’t take a joke. Not even a great-smelling one.

32956433.jpgIndiana Jones: Raiders Of Spielberg’s iMac: Computers and photographs for the upcoming Indiana Jones sequel were stolen, according to DreamWorks Pictures SKG. Police have no suspects yet, but in related news, Sumner Redstone’s face has melted off.

32948715.jpgBoingBoing Bounces Into Tiny TV: The world’s second-best blog is set to go small format today. Here’s the link — not that your inbox isn’t already filled with forwards to the site from your friends.

32951642.jpgShe’s Pretty. And She Can Fart, Too: Columnist Jay A. Fernandez falls head over heels in this profile of The Heartbreak Kid co-star Malin Akerman. You know a guy’s into you when he gives you a blurb-worthy gem like, “most unselfconscious performance by an actress in a comedy in recent memory.”

hbologo.jpgWe’re Glad, Too: The last line of this Robert Lloyd review of Coma, an HBO docu about traumatic brain injury is, “Mostly, you just think, ‘I’m glad it isn’t me.’” We felt the same way — but about reviewing it. We’re glad it wasn’t our assignemnt; the show sounds unbearably depressing.

monkeyass.jpgBad Choices: No, we’re not talking about Bush commuting Libby’s sentence. We get that: The guy looks out for his pals. We’re talking about the LAT’s decision to post a weirdly worded poll on its News Analysis piece asking readers to vote if they “agree with Pres. Bush that 30 months in federal prison is excessive for telling a lie?” When you phrase it that way, then, yes, 30 months in the slammer for “telling a lie” does seem excessive — Okay, Okay! You really do look fat in that dress. And also, who cares what readers think on this topic? If this is what passes for interactive, newspapers really are doomed.

ps3.jpgBig Brother’s Got Game: The Nielsen Co. will begin tracking the games people play on their PlayStation consoles. We expect some sad, sad statistics to start pouring out.

celebjedi.jpgThe Force Is/Are Strong With This One: Good for Geoff Boucher for knowing that the plural of “Jedi” is, in fact, “Jedi.”

cubesquare.jpgCube=Square: We knew hip-hop was dead when we saw Karl Rove rap. But for those of you who held out hope, we offer you this.

richardsmoke.jpgFun For The Kids And Mom And (Snort) Dad, Too! Disney is apparently not as amused as the rest of us by Keith Richards’ little gag-inducing gag.

cruiselaugh.jpgThetan-less Place On Earth: Dennis Rice is leaving Walt Disney Co. to join Tom Cruise and Paula Wagner at UA, saying the duo’s vision “is nothing less than pioneering a new approach to moviemaking.” We wanted to hear him say more, but Cruise whisked Rice away, locked him up in his compound and hooked him up to an ultrasound machine.
