La Coka Nostra rapper/actor Slaine has appeared in two films thus far, playing both a drug dealer/thug and a bank robber/goon, but he’s not at all worried about being typecast. “I’m not worried about being typecast after two movies,” he told the Boston Herald. “I have other opportunities in the pipeline and I’m sure I’m going to explore a bunch of different roles. If it’s a good script, I’ll play a gangster, drug dealer, bank robber, whatever.” Now that’s range. [BostonHerald]

Singer/songwriter Marnie Stern has some fond memories of listening to the King of Pop as a kid. “I remember getting on the school bus and the driver, Dwayne, would blast “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson. I worshipped that bus driver but he was nuts. One time he was going really fast through Central Park and a pigeon smashed on the windshield and everybody cheered [laughs]. He was really into pumping the tunes really loud, which, looking back, is ridiculous with a bunch of five-year-olds on a yellow school bus.” So real. [Pitchfork]
