Ten random things: July 2

Ten stars Entertainment Weekly loves right now:

  1. Mike Rowe, host of The Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs (no. 52)
  2. Ghosts of Cité Soleil, documentary feature (no. 18)
  3. Fantastic Voyage, trippy 60s sci-fi movie (no. 29)
  4. Tom Stoppard, playwright (no. 95)
  5. Chiwetel Ejiofor, actor (no. 14)
  6. Rob Thomas, rock star and documentarian (no. 73)
  7. Hillary Lindsay, country music songwriter (no. 61)
  8. Alan Rickman, actor (no. 4)
  9. Zoe Kravitz, actress (no. 27
  10. Terrence Howard, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr., and Jeff Bridges, the cast of Iron Man (no. 11)

The most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly features The EW 100, "the stars [they] love right now." They use a rather expansive definition of the word "star," as can be seen by the inclusion of two movies in the randomly selected sampling above. Other "stars" include the Will Ferrell/Adam McKay website at no. 6, videogames Halo 3 and Grand Theft Auto 4 at nos. 9 and 10 respectively, Kevin Smith's as-yet-unproduced script for Zack and Miri Make a Porno at no. 22, and the Caribbean — not the ocean, but the countries and territories found there — at no. 60. I think it's a little unfair to force the cast of Iron Man — who have seven Oscar nominations among them — to share one number, while giving individual numbers to the videogames, but what do I know?
