Entertainment Link-Off: A Twist In My Story

Charlize-TheronIt’s Seth Macfarlane vs. Angelina Jolie at the box office this weekend. While both films are currently panned by critics, at least Jolie has the advantage in the fact that everyone seems to love her performance as Malificent. Anyway, Macfarlane’s flick, A Million Ways to Die in the West is loaded with star power and he got Charlize Theron to be his leading lady. So let’s start off the ELO with her.
