Doctor Who is turning into a Google Doodle game, so say goodbye to productivity this Friday; Hugh Jackman had a terrifying brush with cancer; Oprah and a former stripper have teamed up to write an HBO show; and the trailer for Nymphomaniac has blow jobs in it and yet manages to still not be sexy.
- In honor of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, Google unveiled its largest doodle yet (internally called a Whodle, because, why not)—an interactive game filled with Tardises, Time Lords and Daleks. The doodle isn't currently available everywhere so best to play it on the Google UK site. [Google UK]
- Hugh Jackman was treated for skin cancer this week—the actor had a basil cell carcinoma on his nose, that was excised. [Instagram]
- In an extremely unlikely pairing, Diablo Cody and Oprah Winfrey are teaming up on a half-hour comedy for HBO, based on the book Moody Bitches: The Truth About the Drugs You're Taking, The Sex You're Not Having, The Sleep You're Missing and What's Really Making you Crazy. Cody will write the series, which will be produced through Winfrey's Harpo Films. [THR]
- The trailer for Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac is out today, and while there is (obviously) a ton of sex, there's also a ton of crying. Give RedTube a break today and rub one out to this. Oh also Billy Elliot's Jamie Bell is all grown up and spanking people. Right-o. [YouTube]
