TMZ, which operates under the auspices of AOL News, definitely serves a purpose. In life, there’s always somebody that has to reside in the murkiest layer–the person that denies insurance benefits to cancer patients, the defense attorney that attacks victims in order to save her guilty defendant, the jerk that has to tell little kids that there is no Santa Claus. TMZ is like that person. The supergossip team’s shamelessness allows them to dig deep into the wounds of Hollywood to tell us who’s crazy, who’s dead, who has anal sex with prostitutes instead of their wife, who’s suing their ex, who’s blown all of their money on 8 balls. Without them, we wouldn’t know such things, at least not so quickly and with no tactful filter. It’s questionable whether or not we’d ever want to, but that’s not the point. Bottom line, as I said before: TMZ has a purpose, I guess.
Yesterday, the site posted a segment featuring an on-the-fly “interview” with Sung Kang, one of Jen’s many hot boyfriends and familiar sexyface from the Fast & Furious franchise (You can see him alive again in the upcoming sequel, Fast Five). See below:

On the heels of Fast and Furious‘s $72.5 million opening last weekend, it’s been announced that a fifth installment of the street-racing movie franchise is already in the works.
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, both of whose acting skills seemed to be suffering from some kind of Lou Gehrig’s in the fourth installment–rapidly degenerating before your eyes–are slated to return for the fifth movie. No word yet on whether Justin Lin will be hired again to direct, though it would be foolish not to, since the guy is so money.

Occupation: Film Director
Known for: having a movie Midas touch.
Sure, you may know him for some of his previous work: Better Luck Tomorrow, Annapolis, or Finishing the Game–but we’re simply focused, at the moment, on his crowning achievement: The Fast and the Furious Franchise.
How could Universal (or Jen, for that matter) have gotten through 2006 without The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, a movie so addictive and rad that even my tech-iest tech-head friend, who hates sports cars and refuses to own any films on DVD, actually happens to own one DVD–and that’s the one.
Installment four (inventively titled Fast & Furious) of the very fast, very furious films rocketed to the number one spot at the box office this weekend, racking in 2009′s highest haul thus far of $72.5 million. YEEEOWZA. That’s some money, hunny!
Hate or love the movies, you’ve gotta hand it to Lin for doing his part to stimulate this economy!
I didn’t see The Fast and the Furious, nor did I see 2 Fast 2 Furious. But while in an emotional lull spent sifting through the movies available in hi-def on cable one night, I did watch the entirety of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. I’m pretty sure Jen has seen it too.
Sadly, Tokyo Drift did not feature the beauteous bod of Paul Walker (which apparently made up for a lack of plot points in the first two), and was just about as lame as expected, and by golly, was a total fekking rip-off.
That’s bullshit! If we’re going to sit through two hours of curious car antics, this guy (not the bald one) had better be around:
…so that, in order to distract ourselves from the concept, writing, and direction (sorry, Justin Lin) Jen and I can fantasize about “shifting Walker’s gears.” IFYAKNOWWHATIMEAN.
So I hope the rumors going around this week that Diesel and Walker are talking about coming back for round four of the Fastester Furiousest Madness are true. ‘Cuz I’ve been practicing driving stick. IFYAKNOWWHATIMEAN.
