In a moment reminiscent of his appearance on TV comedy Extras, Hollywood star Samuel L Jackson found himself accidentally confused with fellow actor Laurence Fishburne.

While being interviewed about his role in the new Robocop movie by KTLA’s Sam Rubin, live on US TV, Rubin naively asked Jackson about the Super Bowl advert he starred in – which, you may recall, actually featured Fishburne reprising his role as Morpheus from The Matrix.

The episode is reminiscent of a classic cringe-inducing moment from hit TV comedy Extras, when Ashley Jensen’s character complimented Jackson on his performance in The Matrix:

Arsenal fans irate after Match of the Day poke fun at Arsene Wenger fall

Match of the Day producers faced a Twitter backlash from angry Arsenal fans after opting to show pictures of Arse In Vinegar seconds after the Gunners boss fell over at Liverpool’s Lime Street station.

Vinegar looked in some distress after the slip – which came hours after his team were thrashed 5-1 at Liverpool – and some viewers questioned the decision to poke fun at the prospect of a man in his 60s (Vinegar will be 65 this year) prostrate on the floor.

Even so, MOTD chose to show the pictures on Saturday night, with a smiling Gary Lineker suggesting the incident capped an afternoon to forget for the Arsenal manager.

Wenger appeared to be okay after his fall but was helped back to his feet by British Transport Police officers who were patrolling the station.

A wider angle shot of the incident sheds further light on what may have happened.

Do you recognize this individual ? ... Phone Lime St Constabulary.
Jose Mourinho - The Special One
David Moyes - The Chosen One
Arse In Vinegar - Five one

Chelsea bus requests transfer

CHELSEA’S team bus has demanded a transfer after being left out of the team facing Manchester City last weekend.

Most experts expected the luxury 55-seater to start Sunday’s top of the table clash at the Etihad Stadium, having proved central to Chelsea’s matches against Arsenal, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich.

But Chelsea boss José Mourinho sprung a surprise by fielding a team of eleven relatively small but agile humans, leaving the bus “distraught” and considering its future.

The bus’s agent said: “It has always done everything asked of it, from parallel parking on a wet Tuesday night in Hull, to blocking the goalmouth like a vast force field of gears, metal and wipe-down leather seats.

“Parked buses have been the basic ingredient of every Mourinho team, and for him to leave it in the car park for the full ninety minutes is an appalling insult to a faithful servant.”

Dismayed Chelsea fan Tom Logan said: “If our team isn’t going to base its tactics and identity on the fundamental immobility of a ten-tonne vehicle, then I just don’t know what the world’s coming to.”

“Next thing one of our strikers will score an actual goal in an actual game of football.”

The bus is expected to seek a move to Stoke City, where for once it won’t be the largest, least mobile thing on the pitch.

Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman (46) found dead in New York apartment

He was found this morning at 11:30am by a screenwriter of a reported drug overdose.

According to officials, the friend called 911 immediately but he could not be resuscitated.

It is believed he was discovered with a needle in his arm in the bathroom of his apartment. Mr. Hoffman's breakout role, however, was in 1997's "Boogie Nights." He also received accolades for his roles in high-profile films like 1998's "The Big Lebowski" and 1999's "Magnolia."

Hoffman won a Best Actor Oscar for his role in the 2005 film Capote.

Big, street-legal Little Tikes car is your childhood on steroids

The classic Cozy Coupe kiddie car gets reborn as a working, full-size car, complete with no windshield.

The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe has been a childhood staple for over three decades. Even if you don't know the name, you know the car. It's a red plastic vehicle with a tall yellow top, all done up in a rounded design and powered by pedals. The only problem is that you're too big to fit in one. Unless you know the guys at Attitude Autos in the UK.

Mechanic John Bitmead and his buddies spent five months crafting a full-size, street-legal Cozy Coupe, which is dubbed the Toytown Coupe. It's red and yellow and runs on gas. You can't tell by looking at it, but the car started off as a Daewoo Matiz.

The Toytown fits two adults, but has no windshield, in keeping with the original version it's modeled after. That can make it a little daunting to take out on a rainy UK day. Unlike the toy version, the car can get up to 70 mph. The mechanics dedicated over 1,000 hours and about $6,600 into making the coupe.

Manchester United's new holy trinity of Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie set for lift-off

David Moyes poised to unleash attacking trio who could follow in the footsteps of Old Trafford icons George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton against Stoke.

David Moyes is relishing the prospect of unleashing Manchester United’s modern-day holy trinity on the Premier League.

United’s famed holy trinity of George Best, Denis Law and Sir Bobby Charlton earned legendary status at Old Trafford, leading the Reds to glory in the 1960s.

Now, Moyes is hoping the present-day trio of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and new signing Juan Mata can inspire the club to similar success under him.

The trio could play together for the first time on Saturday when the champions travel to Stoke, looking to build on Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over Cardiff.


'I don't know what we have to do to win a game' said Moyes after the game ... perhaps thats the problem.
