Who will reign in pop culture next month? A dead drug addict and rapper-turned-filmmaker are on Esquire's list of predictions:
- Actor John C. Reilly will compete with Will Farrell for jokes in the upcoming laffer, Step Brothers.
- Beastie Boy Adam Yauch has directed Gunnin' for that #1 Spot, a doc about high school basketball prospects in Harlem.
- Deceased scribe Hunter S. Thompson is analyzed in the Johnny Depp-narrated doc, Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.
- Comedian Michael Ian Black has penned My Custom Van: And 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays that Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face.
- Men Without Pants, the brainchild of producer Dan the Automator and drummer Russell Simins, will drop a new album, Naturally.
