Earlier this week, it was reported that Justin Lin was being courted by Universal to return to the ‘Fast and Furious’ series after taking ‘Furious 7’ off and giving the director's seat to James Wan.

Daniel Tosh Caught ESPN Stealing His Bits and Lashes Back in the Funniest Way Possible

Daniel Tosh has got a gripe with ESPN.  The sports behemoth "came up" with a new segment for their programming, called, "Awesome Video Segment".

Not a genius title, admittedly.

But during the "Awesome Video Segment", they blatantly took the "Web Redemption" idea of Tosh's, and "cheapened the brand".

What Do You Want Your Obituary Photo to Be? I Want Mine to Be Fun!

I know this will probably seem kind of mean, and wrong, but a friend sent me a link to an obituary, and the photo seems a bit weird.
