– From Jeff Sheridan: Brooke Hogan photo story on tonight’s “Showbiz Tonight” 11PM on CNN’s Headline News channel‏

– Also from Jeff: MMA “Warrior” movie review in the 8/19-26 Entertainment Weekly magazine‏

Since I can’t find this on www.ew.com , I’ll post the article here. It’s on page 46, has a photo of Tom Hardy in it & now, here’s the article:

“Boxing has Raging Bull. Pro wrestling has The Wrestler. Heck, even kickboxing has the oeuvre of Jean-Claude Van Damme. But where’s the defining movie for mixed martial arts? Well, Warrior hopes to be it. Two estranged brothers [Inception’s Tom Hardy and Animal Kingdom’s Joel Edgerton] must face off in the ring, battling each other – and their complicated past with an alcoholic father [Nick Nolte]. In order to make the combat believable, Hardy and Edgerton trained long and hard. “I don’t think
I’ve ever been in as good shape before or ever will be again,” laughs Edgerton. “We threw ourselves into what the film was, which is living and breathing and sleeping and
eating like fighters.” – Keith Staskiewicz Sept. 9″
