5 Things You Will Not See at Comic-Con This Year

Warner Bros. Warner Bros.

In case you haven't already noticed, the list of movie-related items expected to drop at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con event is, to put it mildly, incredibly extensive.

Just about all the major players are pullin' out the stops this year to get that geek street cred on lock ('cause nerds rule, yo!). So, while we're all optimistically jotting down little lists of things to be particularly jazzed about, things are going to be so busy, hectic and ridiculously awesome for just about anyone even remotely involved with the entertainment biz ... well, except for a few people.

Believe it or not, there are some franchises opting out of a day in the sun at America's Finest City ... and some pretty big ones, too. Get More »

Orlando Bloom 'Taking the Hobbits to Isengard' as a Farewell to Legolas

Well, well, well. Look at who's got himself an elvish little sense of humor!

Orlando Bloom has now completed his work on "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" (for the uninitiated, it's also commonly* referred to as "The Hobbit 3: Shameless Cash Run"), so to celebrate him putting down that blonde wig and quiver set once and for all, Bloom and director Peter Jackson decided to pay a little homage to some on-point but long forgotten viral funnydom.

Jean-Ralphio Tries To Convince Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson To Star in "The Hobbit"

Above is a video for something called "Youtube Comedy Week," which apparently is a real thing and no one of authority feels it to be in any way redundant, like comedy on YouTube is going to cease after a seven-day window or something BUT I DIGRESS.

The video features Ben Schwartz as a character that may or may not be Jean-Ralphio from "Parks and Recreation" trying to convince Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn to make either of "Lincoln" or "The Hobbit" into a buddy comedy. The pair scoffs at the idea — or at least Vaughn does — but we have to admit, "Lincoln" as a buddy comedy featuring Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth as roommates-gone-bad at least has some potential, even if that potential could be considered wildly offensive to many.
