So ‘Bad’ It’s Good
I love you for putting Michael Cera and Jonah Hill of Superbad on your cover (where’s McLovin?). I especially enjoyed reading the roundtable with them, Seth Rogen, and Judd Apatow (”Two Wild and Crazy Guys”). When I see Apatow’s name attached to a project, I know it contains great actors giving funny, heartfelt performances.

I was psyched to see Michael Cera on the cover. I almost forgive you for never putting him on it with his Arrested Development family.

I understand that Superbad is a teenage sex comedy, but the use of women’s bodies as mere decoration offended my feminist sensibilities.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy Stephen King’s pieces in EW. I’ve never picked up a Harry Potter book, (gasp!), but I did love reading ”J.K. Rowling’s Ministry of Magic” and discovering what he had to say about them.
Weathering the Storm
Thank you for ”Back From the Brink.” As a musician, it was one of the most thought-provoking stories I’ve ever read. Firsthand accounts of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy made the article hit home.
Wish Upon ‘Star’
Stardust was a breath of fresh air in a genre that’s been sorely lacking in recent years. I hope people will have the sense to ignore Mr. Gleiberman’s cranky snub (Movies) and give it the chance it deserves.

In ”Actress Without Borders” (Fall Movie Preview, #949/950), we stated that Reese Witherspoon will earn a reported $29 million to star in Our Family Trouble. That film is still in development and no deal is set. We apologize for the error.
OBSESSIVE FAN OF THE WEEK!
You’re never too young to be a metalhead. Wellington, Fla., native Heath McKnight was 10 years old when he discovered Iron Man: ”Tony Stark could don armor and fly around…. I was hooked!” Twenty-one years later, he’s a columnist for fansite Advanced Iron and is ”counting down the days” until the superhero’s 2008 film debut. ”Others have more comics,” he notes, ”but not too many people tattooed ol’ Shellhead on their forearms.”
