Marvel needs to hurry up and confirm someone for Doctor Strange. Every other day, there's another rumor about a different tall, dark and brooding actor set to play The Sorcerer Supreme. Today isn't any different.

Deadline is reporting that every girl's dream, Benny C, is already in talks with Marvel Studios. Kevin Feige's not so secret press conference is tomorrow, so there's hope that this'll finally be settled. Until then, we'll keep our skepticism:

Well after weeks of speculation, the mystery seems to have finally been solved: Kim Jong Un has been spotted. Alive!

And now here he is in a recent photo spread, back at work, touring a creepy orphanage, devoid of any children.

New images of the Great Leader, released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), show him at the Pyongyang Baby Home and Orphanage wandering around inflatable swans while looking confused and happily inspecting a Hello Kitty tea sets, pink bunk beds and ball pits.

Looks like everything is back to normal in North Korea. Now if we can just find those missing children...

Welcome to the dark side… of politics.

Viktor Shevchenko, a former electrician - turned sith lord - turned political candidate, was not allowed to vote in Ukraine's parliamentary election on Sunday, due to the fact that he refused to remove his helmet.

Schevchenko, who legally changed his name to Darth Vader prior to the elections, said he "would die if he took his helmet off," according to ABC News.

He arrived at the polling station standing atop a large black van blasting the Imperial March.

Vader was running in the Ukraine's Internet Party, with promises to turn the Ukraine into a "galactic empire" and build a military space station "that will protect the whole territory of Ukraine."

Do you ever wonder what Larry King is doing at 2am on a Sunday night/Monday morning?

Answer: Taking the social media world by storm… that's what!

For the second week in a row, the 80-year old radio/tv host has tweeted a series of random thoughts, questions, observations on his feed. He covers everything from fear of colonoscopies and his favorite Chinese food, to pipe smoking, and his hatred of snow.

And no he isn't drunk, nor has his Twitter account been hacked - as he clarifies here in an equally funny Instagram video (see above).

Here are a few examples, but be sure check out his official account:

A baby got his family all shook up when he was born with an amazing full quiff hairstyle made famous by Elvis. George Georgious has a large mop of black hair, which formed into a little wave minutes after birth. Despite any attempts to brush it flat, the little rock and roller has a permanent quiff with natural "sideburns" flat to his face. George, aged 10 weeks, now has a bouncing bouffant and mother Maria is regularly stopped in the street by admirers who compare him to the King.

Hypocrite of the Day: Staind Singer Butchers National Anthem at World Series

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis struck out with baseball fans (and America!) Sunday night, with his unique rendition of the National Anthem at Game 5 of the World Series, and Twitter was not very pleased.

While replacing "at the twilight's last gleaming" with " were so gallantly streaming," might seem like a simple enough mistake to make in front of a large crowd - it was actually Lewis himself who lambasted Christina Aguilera back in 2011 for her screw up.

"I guess I just don't understand how people who sing The National Anthem can be so f—ing self-absorbed that they would try to change that f—ing song. If there is a single song in the history of this country that deserves no creative interpretation, it's that one."

"Self-absorbed," Lewis later apologized to America on his website:
All I can say is I'm sorry and ask for the Nation's forgiveness. My nerves got the best of me and I am completely torn up about what happened. America is the greatest country in the world. The Star-Spangled Banner means so much to so many, including myself. I hope everyone can understand the intensity of the situation and my true intent of this performance. I hope that the Nation, Major League Baseball and the many fans of our national pastime can forgive me.
