Charlie Day may play the nerdy scientist in Pacific Rim, but don’t let the sheepish facade fool you. He’s kicking alien butt and taking names in the big budget apocalyptic sci-fi flick -and he’s even ready to demonstrate his movie-trained skills off camera should the end of the world come sooner rather than later.

“I’m fighting back with the rest of the human race! This guy’s not going down,” Day told Celebuzz at the Hollywood premiere July 9. “I’m going to pull tails of Kaijus, I’m going to kick them in their lizard balls, I’m going to do whatever I can do… I’m gonna scratch their eyes… I’m going down swinging!”

But he’s realistic about how things on Earth could really end if it came down to the Kaiju or the human race – breaking wind: “I think Mother Nature will just fart us off the planet.”

The funnyman plays the manic Dr. Newton Geiszler in director Guillermo del Toro‘s highly-anticipated action thriller where the human-piloted Jaeger robots come to epic blows with the Kaiju monsters that are intent on destroying the world.

But forget massive mechanical robots throwing punches, the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia star is just happy to play the smart guy (for once).

“This guy can read and write!” he added. “That’s refreshing. It’s fun to play a guy who’s cocky and arrogant and the smartest guy in the room.”

Henry Cavill Kaley Cuoco hand holding Sherman Oaks

Massive Big Bang Theory fan Henry Cavill and his girlfriend of a few hours Kaley Cuoco have called it quits, E! Online reported late Thursday. No reason was given for their breakup, just as there was no logical reason they started dating in the first place. But, hey, they remain friends!

Reports that they were dating began circulating just two weeks ago. Among the highlights of their whirlwind romance included a trip to the grocery store and an equally thrilling stop at Starbucks. Bye!

Brandi Glanville Breaks Hand Self Defense Class Twitter

You don’t realize how much it sucks to not be able to use one of your hands until you can’t use one of your hands.

That’s a lesson Brandi Glanville is learning today, while adapting to, wait for it, a newly broken hand. And naturally, the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills showed off the damage on Twitter.

One day after she announced that she may or may not have broken her hand in self defense class, Glanville tweeted the photo along with the message, “Hand… Broken… Self defense class…not my month…”

As far as it not being her month, the reality star might be referring to a night out on Monday that ended with some pretty salacious photos finding their way onto the internet. Thankfully for the world, she’s the most honest of all the housewives and announced that, “I got drunk with my gays its not murder,,everyone kept sending us drinks.I was being polite.”

Let’s all raise our glass in honor of being polite. This one’s for you Brandi.

Just as they did with the royal wedding, the tight-knit parish of Bucklebury is preparing to welcome a new member of the Middleton family into the fold.

Celebuzz spoke to local merchants about Her Royal Highness and the excitement surrounding Baby Cambridge’s arrival. The Old Boot Inn owner John Haley told us that the town is planning a do for the ages.

“It will be massive,” he said.

Haley was one of the Bucklebury business owners invited to William and Catherine’s wedding in 2011. Following the ceremony, Haley threw a celebration for the locals.

“After the wedding we had 350 people here for a party, and it’ll be much the same [for the birth]. Hoping for 200 people to come down!” he said proudly.

“I actually asked Kate if she could please tell me the date so we could plan the party. She said, ‘John I really would but I have no idea what day it is.’

“It’s very difficult to plan because we don’t know the arrival so we’re waiting,” Haley said jovially.

“Kate always comes in and orders something special,” he continued. “I asked her if we could reveal and serve her favorite dish and she said she wouldn’t mind.

“We have a bottle or two in the fridge ready to be popped when the baby is here – to wet the baby’s head and the parents and bless the baby,” Haley explained. “We are ready to party once we get that call.”

“We have a couple musicians in town so an odd guitar may be brought out.”

Martin Fidler, owner of The Bladebone Butchery, is quite thrilled for the his friends.

“We’ve known the Middletons from the beginning. They’re such a wonderful family,” he said. “We love them dearly. We just wish them the very best.”

As for William and Catherine’s new adventure?

“They’ll be wonderful parents to the next generation of the throne,” Fidler said.

In the words of Terry Hutt: Hip hip hooray!

Christina Aguilera The Voice

Christina Aguilera has had more than her fair share of, shall we say, interesting looks throughout her career.

Don’t get me wrong, her music is strangely addictive considering how little she can actually relate with her fans. Well, it seems that she’s taken some notes and is ready to come back to The Voice looking like a normal person.

The singer and reality show judge posted the picture above on Facebook earlier today and I’ve got to say that I’m digging her style. Her hair is a normal height. Her make-up is fun, yet reserved. And her jacket is a fun nod to this Hipster Nation.

Keep it coming, Christina. You’ve only been back a short time, but have already come such a long way.

Matthew McConaughey Scarlett Johansson Martin Scorsese Dlce and Gabbana NYC

Holy hot people, Batman!

Two of Hollywood’s sexiest people, Matthew McConaughey and Scarlett Johansson, were spotted in New York City today looking hot and avoiding the rain. If the classic black outfits aren’t enough of a giveaway, they were filming a commercial for designer Dolce & Gabbana.

As if being dressed in amazing designer duds wasn’t enough, the pair shot scenes behind the wheel of an amazing car all while being directed by Martin Scorsese.

Earlier this spring, the pair were seen on location in Malibu filming another spot for the designer brand.

Personally, I’d like to know how much Dolce and Gabbana are spending on this campaign.

Check out all the images in the gallery above, and, if you’ve got the time, the pictures of ScarJo from the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Rooney

Wayne Rooney wants to quit Manchester United, in spite of public assurances from manager David Moyes he is not for sale, according to the Daily Star.

Chelsea believe they are in pole position to land the 25 million-rated striker if he decides to leave Old Trafford this summer after almost a decade at the club.

United manager Moyes said earlier this week he had met the 27-year-old “three of four times” to thrash out his future, and also stressed that the 240,000-a-week marksman is not for sale.

However, speculation over Rooney’s future goes on as, crucially, the Scotsman failed to mention specifically if the player is happy at the club and still wants to stay.

Moyes was expected to use the club’s three-week pre-season tour of Asia and Australia to hold more talks with the ex-Everton star, but it was revealed last night that Rooney would be flying home after suffering a hamstring injury.

A statement said:

“Following a scan on a hamstring injury sustained in training, it has been decided Wayne Rooney should return home for further assessment and rehabilitation.”

He has been ruled out for a month and will sit out United’s season-curtain raiser against Wigan Athletic in the Community Shield on August 11, the season opener against Swansea six days later as well as England’s friendly against Scotland, which is sandwiched between those two fixtures.

Chelsea were confident they could land Rooney when speculation about his unhappiness in Manchester first surfaced. The Blues will however have to compete with Arsenal if the striker becomes available, with their London rivals also interested.

Demba Ba

Aston Villa have identified Chelsea’s Demba Ba as the replacement for Christian Benteke this summer, according to the Daily Star.

Villa look set to lose Benteke just one year after signing him from Genk, after he handed in a transfer request earlier this week.

The Midlands club will now listen to offers starting from 25 million, with Tottenham thought to be favourites for the 22-year-old’s signature.

With that in mind, Villa have already stepped up their pursuits for a replacement, and have been trailing Ba, who is available for just 7 million after joining the Blues in the January transfer window from Newcastle.

The former Magpies ace does not factor into new manager Jose Mourinho’s plans at Stamford Bridge and will be allowed to call time on his short stay in West London.

While Villa could afford the transfer fee, the Senegalese striker’s wage demands could be an issue, according to the same report.

The 28-year-old is a proven goalscorer in the Premier League and despite fears about his record for knee injuries, Newcastle took a chance on him and he scored 29 goals at St James’ Park.

Intriguingly, Chelsea, who are also interested in Benteke, could offer Ba-plus-cash for the highly-rated Belgian international, but Mourinho is thought to have other transfer targets further up his wishlist, such as Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney.

Benteke also knows he would likely get more playing time at White Hart Lane than at Stamford Bridge and, with a World Cup year coming up, that could prove crucial when he decides on his next career move.

Whatever happens, Villa have told the player they are not prepared to be messed about this summer – and Lambert has warned the starlet that any business must be concluded by the start of next month or all bets are off.

Benteke has not travelled to Germany with the rest of the squad as they begin their three-game tour of the country.

tom huddlestone

Tom Huddlestone will arrive on Wearside for talks with Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio after the Black Cats agreed a 5 million fee with Tottenham Hotspur for the player’s services, according to the Evening Standard.

Di Canio though will have to convince Huddlestone to take a wage cut of 5,000 a week (dropping from 40k to 35k) to come to the Staidum of Light and there could be concerns that a major ankle injury suffered two years ago and that has caused problems for the player since, could hamper the chances of him passing a medical.

The 26-year-old midfielder only made 14 league appearances for Spurs last season and will likely be itching to play regular Premier League football after a lack a opportunities in Andre Villas-boas’s side. New Spurs signing Paulinho has added considerable competition in Tottenham’s central midfield that already included Scott Parker, Jake Livermore, Sandro and January’s new signing, Lewis Holtby. A move for Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen is also muted.

The White Hart Lane club made Huddlestone available for transfer earlier in the summer but despite interest from other clubs, namely Fulham, it’s only Sunderland who have met Tottenham’s asking price.

A move to the North East may boost Huddlestone’s chances of an England call-up, something he has only had one of in the last three years. With the World Cup looming over every England player this summer, he’ll want to make a good impression for boss Roy Hodgson in as many domestic games as possible, and at Sunderland he would likely be on the team-sheet for every match.

Sunderland head coach, Paolo Di Canio, hopes to improve and boost his midfield after poor displays from that area of the pitch in the previous term.

This season of Game of Thrones has been quite hectic, but we were there every step of the way. And now, as we try to face the reality of another year until a new season of Game of Thrones, there is still much to be done and much to explore.

Now, being a fan of Game of Thrones entails a certain amount of heartbreak no matter what. When Ned Stark’s head came off in Season 1, it was clear that anybody, anybody was fair game. That fact has only become starker as one beloved character after another has fallen. This has made a lot of fans want to swear off the show entirely, but I’m here to tell you why you shouldn’t.

It wouldn’t be Westeros without the death, but there’s also a little bit of good, or at least entertaining, that comes along with it. Join me as we look forward to Top 5 great things to expect next season…

*This is an article about a future season, so obviously there will be spoilers.

Also, Honorable Mention: Coldhands, who I really thought would be the final reveal of this season. He is the character that will help Bran and company journey beyond the wall and lead the way. He will kill all the men responsible for the Mutiny at Craster’s Keep. His face has never been seen, only his hands, and they’re pure black. Rumours abound to what or who he actually is, and while he certainly is epic, so are most people in Game of Thrones.
