HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tom Cruise’s confusing flick, Vanilla Sky, has been officially dubbed the most baffling film ever. According to a new poll by LoveFilm.com, movie buffs agree that they’re totally perplexed by the 2001 mystery thriller. Other flicks that leave audiences wondering include: David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, Donnie Darko, The Matrix Revolutions, Christopher Nolan’s Memento, 12 Monkeys, and the cult classic A Clockwork Orange.

BILLUND, Denmark – Soccer stud David Beckham may be rolling in free LEGOs. The company wants to make Becks their new creative mastermind after he unofficially endorsed the building blocks earlier this month by revealing to fans that he’d built a LEGO model of the Taj Majal. Sales increased by a whopping 663 percent following Beckham’s confession, and now LEGO has invited him to their headquarters in Denmark to help drum up new ideas for the classic toy.

HOLLYWOOD – All hope isn’t lost just yet on that big screen sequel to Anchorman. Although Paramount execs rejected the $60 million request to fund the flick, Steve Carell says Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay have an idea to turn Anchorman into a Broadway musical. Supposedly, the plan is to reunite the cast in a theatrical production and then go on to film a new movie. If that’s the case, Carell says he’s fully on board.

LOS ANGELES – Mad Men star Jon Hamm is going from sophisticated series to crude cartoon by appearing on The Simpsons. He’s set to voice a tough FBI agent who has no patience for Homer Simpson on an upcoming episode. Producers say Hamm did so well, they may invite him back for another round in animation.
