Earlier, we told you that Jessica Biel was up for the role of Wonder Woman in the Justice League film, but she's since decided to bow out of the project. That's kind of sad, because we were looking forward to seeing Ms. Biel play the Amazon princess. However, there is other casting news that might intrigue you.

Tyrese Gibson, who was prominently featured in Transformers, might well be meeting your eye again in JLA, playing Green Lantern. This means they're likely not going with the Hal Jordan Green Lantern, unless they're making a radical casting decision, but it's not all bad news.

What do you think?

As NBC rolls through their back catalog, attempting to resurrect long-dead television franchises (Bionic Woman, anyone?) they have come up with a real doozy. Doug Liman, the man responsible for Swingers and Go, will be producing a new version of Knight Rider, the series that made David Hasselhoff a household name and a singing superstar.

This version of the show, however, will owe a lot more to Transformers than to anything else. This show will feature a legion of evil cars that will oppose K.I.T.T. out there on the nation's roads. Now, Hasselhoff won't be on the show, unless he makes a cameo appearance in Season Two as Michael Knight's father, but it should still be interesting, at the very least.

The Phoenix Suns' Amare Stoudamire is one of the most popular players in the National Basketball Association, and also one of the most talented basketball players in the world. This is why he's earned the cover of NBA '08. Recently, Amare dropped in to the Sony studios to show off his skills for the motion capture crew there, so that they could get his moves in the game.

And we've got the video of the event. Please, do not thank us. We're only doing our job.

Our cousins at E! have done it again. They will air Tales From The Hoff, a series about the life of David Hasselhoff, to be produced by Ryan Seacrest. The show will be very much in the vein of Curb Your Enthusiasm, in that it will be about real people, but it will be scripted.

Oh, and it will star DAVID HASSELHOFF, which has a chance of either being totally sweet or a complete disaster. It doesn't really matter, does it? As long as you get a chance to hang with the Hoff, you win.

TheFeed are big fans of Wes Anderson. As a matter of fact, we struggle to think of a better American film in the past 10 years than The Royal Tennenbaums, which is a flat out masterpiece. We even, for the most part, liked The Life Acquatic with Steve Zissou. So, you can imagine how happy we are that there are not one, but two Anderson films coming out in the next couple of weeks, and that the first, Hotel Chevalier, is available for free on iTunes!

Wait, though. There's more. This Hotel Chevalier short, a 13-minute film, features the very first ever appearance of Natalie Portman naked on film. Now, how much would you pay? Forget it! You don't have to pay anything! Just thank your old friends here at TheFeed for looking out for you.

Last week, we told you that the Justice League film was a go, and that it had a script and a director. Now, word comes that Jessica Biel is in talks to play Wonder Woman in that film, and TheFeed has only one thought on its mind. How will she look in that costume? Very, very hot is the answer.

This is the first piece of positive casting news to come from the JLA project. We know that neither Brandon Routh nor Christian Bale will be reprising their roles as Superman or Batman, respectively, but we also know that both characters are central to the film. We're mostly just thrilled that Jessica Biel will be scantilly clad in a film.

Matthew McConaughey has stepped for Owen Wilson in his cameo spot in Ben Stiller's upcoming Tropic Thunder.

Written by Idiocracy writer Etan Cohen, Tropic Thunder is a parody of big-budget racing films like Tom Cruise’s Days of Thunder and Sylvester Stallone’s Driven.

Wilson dropped out of the film following his alleged suicide attempt last month.

The movie is filming in Hawaii and also stars Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr.

But the real news here is that no one has had the idea of remaking the Burt Reynolds/Loni Anderson/Jim Nabors classic Stroker Ace, the greatest racing film of all time! That honor will go to me as soon as I make my millions in real estate! Hahahahaha!

Stephen Colbert has been accused of stealing a joke from an Air America radio show, reagrding how Republicans are like Klingons, in that they are all trying to say it's more honorable to win the war in Iraq than it is to win the presidency. Cenk Uygur, the host of the radio show in question, has threatened to sue Colbert for $65 million over the joke.

Now, you'll notice that this isn't the most interesting joke in the world, and certainly not worth $.65, let alone $65 million. Also, Stephen Colbert doesn't have to steal jokes from anyone, certainly not a bagger who wants to raise his personality profile by taking on one of the funniest men in show business. We'd like to call for a boycott of Young Turks, the Air America radio show Uygur hosts, in support.

Giovanni Ribisi Is In 'Avatar'

Giovanni Ribisi will join the cast of James Cameron's VFX-laden Avatar, where he will play a character by the name of Selfridge. Ribisi will join Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana, and Sigourney Weaver in the feature, which has a price tag of $190 million, and will feature some computer-generated characters in it, as well.

Avatar, the story of humans facing off against aliens from another planet, is a project that Cameron has been trying to get off the ground since he directed his last project, an art house indie movie called Titanic. We can only hope he can make the transition to big budget film without too much trouble.

Tarantino Making Sex Film?

Quentin Tarantino is thinking about making an old-school, 70's-style erotic movie, about some friends who go to Sweden and hook up with some random chicks there. This will make a change from the violent films that QT has been making for the better part of the last 18 years or so.

One of the interesting things about this endeavor is that Tarantino has admitted that he will have to reveal whatever kinks he has if he wants to make the film any good. And that he's a little nervous about doing that. So, we guess that Quentin is cool with all kinds of violence, but is kind of a prude when it comes to talking about what turns him on.

Barry Bonds' record-breaking 756th home run ball has been sold online...to fashion designer Mark Ecko, who has put the fate of the ball up to a public vote. You can vote to bestow the ball on the Baseball Hall of Fame, brand it with an asterisk, or blast it into space. Ecko will then do whatever the vote has deemed he should.

This is not the first time the eccentric designer has done strange things to American pop culture items. There's a very famous video of him breaking onto the tarmac and tagging Air Force One, which turned out to be a fake, but was hilarious nonetheless. This is real, though. He purchased the ball online for over $750,000. Why not vote on the fate of the ball?

Colin McRae, world-famous off-road racer and namesake of videogames including the recently-released DiRT, is feared dead after a helicopter crash in his native Scotland over the weekend. There were said to be four bodies in the 'copter, owned and operated by McRae, but a formal identification process has yet to take place.

The craft was burned so badly that it was impossible to identify the type of helicopter it was, so it's going to take quite some time for a confirmation, but McRae was said, by his manager, to be the one piloting the aircraft. TheFeed is saddened by the loss of one of the videogaming pantheon.

In addition, Colin McRae’s website is now hosting Messages of Condolence and the good people at Codemasters, who made the game, have posted an obituary for McRae on their website.

As popular and profitable as The Simpsons Movie was for Homer fans the world over, talks of a second theatrical installment seems to be as certain as the new Guns N Roses album. The New York Post spoke to Exec Producer and showrunner Al Jean on the prospects of a second excuse to watch TV on the big-screen, to which Jean gave the typical Hollywood cryptic response:

"We would only do a sequel if we believed it was a movie that had to be made, just like we did with the first one. We wouldn't want to do it just because the first one was successful, or because we wanted to make money off of a movie. We'd only do it if we had a script that we thought was great [and] there's no script at this point."

Tommy Lee Says, "Sorry"

No doubt, if you were watching this year’s MTV Video Music Awards you saw Kid Rock and Tommy Lee get into an ugly scuffle in the middle of Alicia Keys’ performance.

Being the upstanding father and tax payer that he is, Motley Crue drummer, Tommy Lee has decided to set a good example and apologize, but not to the Devil Without a Cause, to Keys; "I apologize sweetie... I had nothing to do with the timing and disrespect."

Lee had some other choice words for the Detroit Kid. "I get a tap on the shoulder from Kid Pebble. I stand up and embrace him with a semi hug and say, 'Hey dude, what up?' He punches me in the face... Well if ya wanna call it that!?... (It was) more like a bitch slap!... Wuss!!"

Why, oh why do celebrities never settle their feuds in no holds barred, Pay Per View events?

Christian Bale told a British film magazine that he is in the running to play Solid Snake in a film version of Metal Gear Solid. That dude is so lucky. First he gets to play Batman, and now this? We don't mind, actually, because Christian Bale is nothing if not a really, really good actor, which is what Metal Geat Solid needs to be a movie that's taken seriously, and not written off as if it were just another videogame movie.

There's nothing written in stone, yet, so we're not sure how close to reality this is. However, as soon as we know more about the casting, we'll be sure and let you know. Oh,yeah...The Dark Knight is coming this summer, just in case you've forgotten just how badass this man really is.
