On Monday, days after learning from his board of directors that the merger had gone through two months ahead of schedule, Wilke says he found out from an article on Ad Age’s Website that he would no longer be with the organization he’d founded seven years ago. 'There wasn’t supposed to be a shutdown,' Wilke told 'That was never planned. I know the board was very concerned about being in the black at the end of the year, so their solution was to cancel our big fundraiser and to let me go.'"

Cam Gigandet Gives Good Sweater


Cam Gigandet, who's part of the Vampire brat pack in the upcoming Twilight film, attempts to look as cute (and as much like David Beckham) as possible in this new Gap ad. Of course, to some of you, it may be a lot cuter if you remember what's underneath that Argyle.

Sean Faris Puts Up His Dukes


I was recently offered a peek at the trailer for the upcoming film Never Back Down starring Sean Faris which i'd probably describe as Fight Club meets Karate Kid meets The O.C. in Florida. Faris plays a newcomer in town who makes the mistake of mixing it up with a bully determined to make him look like a bitch. He then finds a Mr. Miyagi-style mixed martial arts coach in Djimon Hounsou. There's no gay element in the movie as far as I can see, except the fact that two Abercrombie-type twinks are flexing their sweaty chests and biceps for two hours while pummeling each other as a Calvin Klein underwear model looks on. And well, that seemed pretty gay to me.





Faris' rival is played by Cam Gigandet.
