A WORD FROM STEVE...
Welcome back! How was your week? We're back for another week of hot women, the biggest Hollywood news, and some celebrity gossip! For some additional reading you can check out my interview with Playboy's Miss August, Val Keil! Then peep my interview with one of the coolest dudes in Hollywood Ari Gold! Want more? OK. Read my review for American Courtesans! Still not enough? Take your pick between my Comics 411 or my Big Screen Bulletin!
Kimberly Kane is one to watch. In 2010, Kane was named by Maxim as one of the 12 top female stars in porn and she's been named one of the top 10 female directors by XCritic. It's Vivid Entertainment's latest release, Devil on a Chain that has everyone talking. Starring and directed by the multi-talented Kane, Devil on a Chain tells the story of Candy (played by Kimberly), who has just 24 hours to find her sister Cherry (Skin Diamond), who has been kidnapped by a nefarious criminal organization involved in the perverted underbelly of sex trafficking in the bleak Salton Sea California landscape. Only Candy can find her sister and she'll lay waste to anyone who gets in her way.
As I mentioned, Kane not only directed and stars in the movie, but she also co-wrote the sexploitation/neu vintage, adult action comedy screenplay with Nate Liquor. "I wanted to revisit the sexploitation genre of the 70s using the great talents that we have available in this industry," said Kane. "Of course, I'm breathing new life into these really hip and really stylized movies because I think porn enthusiasts will love the sexy tongue-in-cheek fun. One of my favorite characters is the evil pimp who has OCD and is constantly using a hand sanitizer. I also think that fans will totally love the editing by the amazing Winkytiki."
I had the chance to catch up with Kimberly and ask her some questions about her latest ventures.
Steve Gustafson: Kimberly, thank you for taking some time to answer some questions for 411mania.com! You've been a hot topic both in and out of the industry recently. Speaking about Vivid's Devil on a Chain, you co-wrote, star, and directed this feature, which is a huge accomplishment. What inspired you to wear so many hats?
Kimberly Kane: I like to stay busy. I'm a creative person and I outgrow things and move on.
Steve Gustafson: Was it difficult managing the various duties?
Kimberly Kane: I've been directing and performing for many years. It's be come like one big job. I have an awesome crew and production manger helping me so it's a very collaborative affair.
Steve Gustafson: How would you describe Devil on a Chain to a new fan?
Kimberly Kane: Devil on a Chain is what I like to call a "neu vintage" Sexploitation movie. It has all the campy, ass kicking, sexy and hip you'd get in the 1970's Sexploitation films of the past, using the best talent we have in the business today. I think it's one of my coolest movies yet.
Steve Gustafson: Not too long ago you set the internet on fire with a simple picture of you in the Wonder Woman costume for the Wonder Woman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody movie. How was dealing with all the attention?
Kimberly Kane: I'm glad people are excited about the new Wonder Woman movie (coming soon) it's a great honor to be picked to play such a huge character. I know a lot of actresses went out for the part, but I'm happy they chose me.
Steve Gustafson: What can we look out for from you in the near future?
Kimberly Kane: I have new movies coming out soon with Vivid Entertainment that are really cool. I have an all girl movie called Pink Velvet and a epic crime drama feature coming out next year that was shot on location in San Francisco. I also have a brand new website launching and my very on iPhone App that will feature photos of me and my own photography. It's a very exciting year!
Steve Gustafson: What's the best way for fans to keep up-to-date on your latest news and movies?
Kimberly Kane: Follow me on twitter @kimberlykane.
Steve Gustafson: Thanks again Kimberly and all the best!
OK, I have to note that Vivid sent me some photos to run with the interview and I just got to open them but they aren't safe to run on the site. If you really want to see them, hit me up. Otherwise, this picture of Kimberly as Wonder Woman will have to suffice. Devil on a Chain is available NOW! Head over to Vivid.com to pick it up!
Alright, who's greeting us this week? It's none other than...Draya Michelle! I can't say for sure but I think I'm the one who first introduced Draya into the pages of 411mania.com. For better or for worse. Here's Michelle and her gold bikini.
Last week we had a mega-three way between Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sofia Vergara, and Mila Kunis. Here's the results:
Mila Kunis 35.22%
Jennifer Love Hewitt 34.22%
Sofia Vergara 30.56%
SUPER close one! Not many votes separated the girls but Mila comes out on top. Which I'm a little surprised at but really, we're all winners here.
This week I wanted to switch it up. Take two train wrecks and put them on a collision course with each other. On one side, Miley Cyrus. I don't have to say too much. On the other, Lindsay Lohan. Again, she speaks for herself. Folks, who's the hottest Drama Queen?
Miley Cyrus VS Lindsay Lohan
PIC OF THE WEEK! Aubrey O'Day. What more do I need to say. Here's yet another tiny bikini pic of a 411mania staple. Not sure what's going on in this picture or who the kid in the background is, but does it matter?
WHAT THE HELL?
When I see a headline that says: "Alyssa Milano's Sex Tape" I pay attention. Turns out the folks over at Funny or Die did it to me again. Check it out and accept this might be the nearest we'll ever get to her doing a sex tape.
Make sure you're following all the comings and goings around 411mania on Twitter! Follow me for some witty tweets from time-to-time as well. Dana White, Jesse Jane, and Larry Csonka follow me. What are you waiting for?
Star Wars Rumors!
Deadline.com created a stir on Wednesday when they reported that Benedict Cumberbatch was negotiating to star in The Lost City Of Z, a project that would effectively remove him from Star Wars: Episode VII consideration.
Cumberbatch picks up the project from Brad Pitt, who was first attached to star in Lost City of Z back in 2008 before opting out in 2010. Director James Gray, meanwhile, has remained with the project for the last five years.
Lost City of Z is based on David Grann's non-fiction account of British explorer Percy Fawcett and his obsession with finding the disappeared city of the title in the South American jungle. Fawcett and his son were lost and presumed killed during an exhibition to find the city in May of 1925. Their bodies were never recovered. Cumberbatch would star as Fawcett.
On Monday, a rumor that Cumberbatch could play a role in the new Star Wars film shot around the internet. That story was denied by Cumberbatch's representatives on Tuesday, and now seems moot with the news of Lost City of Z. In addition to that film, Cumberbatch is also set to star in Imitation Game as Alan Turing. He's featured in four upcoming 2013 releases, including 12 Years A Slave, The Fifth Estate, August: Osage County and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Did you want to see him in Star Wars? I think he'd be a great Grand Admiral Thrawn.
The next batch of super fans are ready. Angry Fifty Shades of Grey followers are petitioning against the casting choices made by producers of the erotic novel's film adaptation. The irate "Shaders"(?) are demanding Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer be cast as the leads instead.
On Monday, author E L James announced via Twitter that the stars of the much-anticipated kinky adaptation were finally chosen. Dakota Johnson is set to play virginal college student Anastasia Steele, while Charlie Hunnam will take on the role of Christian Grey, the brooding businessman who entices Anastasia over to the dark side with his "Red Room of Pain."
We have one of those at the 411mania Headquarters.
The Hollywood Reporter noted that a Change.org petition has been set up demanding the leads be recast with Bleldel and Bomer as the stars. The petition, which has since garnered over 20,000 signatures, reads:
Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.
Bledel and Bomer have been fan favorites since talks of the 50 Shades movie first began. Bledel was apparently "flattered" to be considered. "I don't know where it came from," she told Elle magazine last year. "All I know about are some fan-made trailers on the internet I've seen, but that's the only thing I've heard." Adding, "People definitely do have strong opinions about [the casting of Christian Grey]. I guess when people really identify with a concept, they feel strongly about it."
Producer Dana Brunetti defended casting Johnson and Hunnam, who reportedly nailed a "chemistry read" together.
Are you a secret Shades fan?
Love for Batman!
According to Latino Review, a new casting breakdown is rumored to be floating around to talent agencies for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel.
The casting breakdown suggests that Batman (BenAffleck) will have his own love interest in the film. The story says, "they're looking for someone in their late 20s and are open to all ethnicities." They also want an actress "who is both tall and possesses physicality." The character could be any number of possibilities such as Vicki Vale, Julie Madison, Selina Kyle, or someone else entirely. Let the rumors begin swirling over that.
Affleck stars with Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Amy Adams, and DianeLane. The film releases on July 17, 2015.

How about a Lois love triangle?
Oh, Will and Jada!
The tabloids won't rest until these two split! Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are neither selling their California mansion nor divorcing, despite what stories the rumor mill churns out.
Last week, Real Estalker first claimed that Will and Jada quietly put their $42 million, 25,000-square-foot Calabasas, Calif., estate on the market. The adobe-style home, designed by Stephen Samuelson, took years to build and features a recording studio, meditation room, a private terrace off the master bathroom and a free-form pool all on 150 acres. It was featured in Architectural Digest in 2011.
Gossip blogs like Hollywood Life and X17 Online questioned if the supposed sale of their dream home signifies an oncoming divorce. Hollywood Life even surmised the two may be "selling off assets in order to make a divorce mediation easier."
Bottomline, the entire story is a fabrication.
A spokesperson told the Daily Mail that Will and Jada are not selling their mansion. A source told Gossip Cop any talk of a split is "completely false."
Will and Jada, who married in 1997, have dealt with divorce rumors before. Both have candidly discussed their relationship, which has been speculated to be an open marriage.
"I've always told Will, 'You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay,'" the actress told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill back in April. "Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I'm here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that's not for me to do for him. Or vice versa."
Time to back off, Tabloids.
