"Nobody Sees It, Didn't Happen"

Trailer # 2 has been released for Black Mass, the story of Boston's most notorious wanted man, Whitey Bulger, starring Johnny Depp.

Johnny's unrecognizable in this one - as he is in most of his films.

But funny thing, he does call to mind two other actors.

First, Jack Nicholson's character in The Departed.

Second, and only in one of the shots in the sunglasses, James Spader's character in The Blacklist.

What do you think?

The most feared, most wanted, most notorious gangster in U.S. history. Watch Johnny Depp in the exclusive new #BlackMass trailer.

Dick's Still Got It

Dick Van Dyke's a song-and-dance man at heart.

Sure, he's an actor and comic too, but deep down inside, he's a song-and-dance man.

So it's not surprising to see him moving quite well - especially given that he's 89 years old - in this video for Dustbowl Revival's song, "Never Had to Go."

He's still got his comic chops too.

Prehistoric Funk

I just stumbled on this video from a few months ago, but it's perfect for some holiday fun.

One of the hottest songs of the year so far has been Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk."

Turns out the beat and music are very similar to "Walk The Dinosaur," a song by a group called Was (Was Not) in 1987.

Pretty amazing how close these two are.

I wonder if Robin Thicke had anything to do with "Uptown Funk?"

Thank You for Your Service

It's Memorial Day, a time to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country.

We should all the take the time to stop and say thank you to those who've gone before us.

And let's not forget to say thanks to those that are still here.

This amazing video is from a year ago, but it remains poignant.

Runners in San Jose, California were participating in a charity race benefitting the military.

A 95-year-old veteran named Joe Bell set up a chair in front of his home, and sat in his old uniform tunic and cap to watch the racers pass.

And before long, the race was all about Joe, as the runners came up to him and shook his hand to thank him for his service.

Touching.

The sight of a 95-year-old veteran cheering on runners in a military charity race in San Jose triggered a spontaneous show of patriotism that captured the nation's attention.Joe Bell was waving at the runners when suddenly he became the one being honored. One by one, participants ran over to Bell, shaking his hand and thanking him for his service.The race benefited the Pat Tillman Foundation, set up in honor of the fallen Army Ranger and San Jose native.Watch KTLA's video here: http://ktlane.ws/1kwcgo9

Dave Grohl - The 5th Beatle

Music fans in London got a treat on Saturday night.

Paul McCartney was in concert. Like that's not enough.

But, he invited Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters on stage with him to assist with a Beatles classic, "I Saw Her Standing There."

Couple of observations...

(1) Paul's voice is holding out pretty well for a guy about to turn 74.

(2) Dave and Paul together is a very cool collaboration. And I would love to see more of them!
