Once again, it’s time for SLAMonline’s hottest new weekly feature, wherein Lang and Sam try to guess what this week’s cover of Entertainment Weekly will be…
Lang Whitaker: Guess what time it is?
Sam Rubenstein: EW?
Sam Rubenstein: gametime?
Lang Whitaker: Ew Guessed it!
Sam Rubenstein: I’m ready, although really clueless.
Lang Whitaker: So am I. I think if we’ve learned anything it’s that we’re really bad at guessing EW covers
Sam Rubenstein: Yes. But they’ve been wildly unpredictable lately.
Sam Rubenstein: We used to get them right before the game.
Lang Whitaker: I know. I’m not sure is that’s more of a reflection of our poor picking power or EW going down the tubes.
Sam Rubenstein: I think we should blame EW.
Lang Whitaker: Probably.
Lang Whitaker: So…maybe TO on the cover?
Sam Rubenstein: Hmmm…
Sam Rubenstein: That would definitley be their “edgiest” ever.
Lang Whitaker: If it were up to me, it would be a Norm MacDonald cover. His new album is hilarious.
Sam Rubenstein: ooooh… That would be a bold move. But that gives me an idea for who their cover might be.
Sam Rubenstein: Dane Cook. He’s hosting SNL’s season opener
Lang Whitaker: And he has that Jessica Simpson movie coming out
Lang Whitaker: I just don’t think he’s really all that funny…maybe it’s just me…apparently it’s just me
Sam Rubenstein: No, you’re not alone. He is not funny. I mean, millions of people think he is, but I am not one of them.
Sam Rubenstein: There was a little blurb from him a few weeks ago in the magazine, so maybe they were holding off for the cover.
Lang Whitaker: They should do a while SNL thing, since it’s got two TV shows based on it and has the season premiere
Lang Whitaker: but then, they just did a thing on SNL last week leading off their front of the book.
Lang Whitaker: So…
Sam Rubenstein: Do you have a pick?
Lang Whitaker: The Departed.
Sam Rubenstein: They had a whole feature on Scorcese last week, but they didn’t speak to any of the superduperstars in the movie.
Sam Rubenstein: Could be. I think you might be right.
Sam Rubenstein: I picked that last week, but too early.
Lang Whitaker: Still might be too early, don’t think it’s out for a few more weeks.
Lang Whitaker: but it’s never too early for Leo and Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson on the cover
Sam Rubenstein: Hey Marky Mark is in it too.
Lang Whitaker: Right
Lang Whitaker: OK…look it up…
Sam Rubenstein: This week’s cover is…
Sam Rubenstein: KATE WINSLET!!! Hey, she did a movie with DiCaprio 10 years ago. And I find her extremely attractive. But this is yet another head-scratcher.
