Weekend Roundup

Remember almost TWO years ago when I tried to hip y'all to Theo James? I have been trying to tell y'all. Anyway, he's been cast as Four in the upcoming "Divergent" movie. I am 50 shades of excited about this. (If you are not hip to the "Divergent" series and you liked "The Hunger Games" then you need to run, do not walk, to your nearest Barnes and Noble or open iBooks/Amazon/B& and start reading IMMEDIATELY.) - Just Jared

Depending on who you ask, Lil' Wayne is either at death's door or needs to take this health scare for what it is and dial it back a bit. It's no secret that I'm not a fan of Wayne, but he has kids and they need their father. So I'm hoping he makes a full recovery. TMZ and CNN

I've been with T-Mobile for 13 years. I'm talking since they were Powertel. But I travel a lot and their service just doesn't cut it. Plus their phones STAY expensive. So as soon as the Galaxy S IV drops T-Mobile can kick rocks. - Tech Radar

Confession: I've never read "The Great Gatsby." However, with Jay-Z involved with the movie adaptation's soundtrack, I will promptly be heading over to iBooks to get my read on ahead of the film's release. - LA Times

I'm not ashamed to say that I've read all of the Twilight books and seen *coughowncough* all of the movies. I also read "The Host." I liked it. So I'm moderately excited about the movie even though it seems to be getting very little press. - Facebook

Is there a black guy in the band? (I'm a little embarrassed about how many of these I got wrong.) - BuzzFeed

I like the idea of a device that prevents texting and driving. (I've been guilty of that more times than I care to admit.) But does it allow the GPS to work? I can sometimes be severely directionally challenged. Texts I don't need but GPS is a must. - Mashable

Jessie J shaved her head for charity. I love her even more now. - US Magazine

Fellow Whovians: EW has a new trailer for the upcoming season of Doctor Who which begins March 30. (Insert overwhelming giddiness here) -

I would vote for a Clinton/Obama ticket all day!!!! Real talk, I would volunteer every free moment I had to voter registration, campaign fundraising and anything else that would get these two elected. - HuffPo

These keep happening. I am not mad about that.
