I’ve been a big fan of Sienna Miller ever since she called Pittsburgh "Shitsburgh".  Nothing against the city, I just think hybrid words are fantasgreat.  Anyway, she recently told the BBC that she has been cast as Maid Marian in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Nottingham, a twist on Robin Hood in which the Sheriff of Nottingham is a sympathetic figure.  Brian Helgeland, who won an oscar for co-writing L.A. Confidential, is writing the script.  Russell Crowe is set to play the sheriff.

Speaking to the BBC’s Colin Paterson, Miller said: "It’s happening. I just found out. It’s the most exciting news in the world." [BBC]

I don’t know about that.  Call me old-fashioned, but I thought picures of Sienna Miller’s vagina on the internet was pretty exciting news.  And while we’re on that, what the hell’s this guy’s problem? I don’t know what you’re trying to prove by averting your eyes from the full frontal going on right in front of you, pal, but it’s not working.  I wouldn’t even have taken my binoculars off. 

In other hard-hitting BBC News, Chinese South Africans are now black.
