There's a "Justice League" Porno . . . Featuring Ron Jeremy as The Penguin!
They say HEATH LEDGER was born to play the Joker. If that's true, then so is this: RON JEREMY was born to play the Penguin.
And that's happening in a new X-rated version DC Comics' "Justice League". It's called, "Justice League: A Hardcore Parody" . . . and it includes all the classic DC superheroes . . .
Like Superman, Batman and Robin, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and Green Lantern . . . Plus the villains Catwoman, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and Ron Jeremy's Penguin.
There's no word when this future masterpiece will come out, but we have some pictures from the set.
They include a shot in which Wonder Woman is on her knees, getting ready to boost the morale of her fellow superheroes, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
But the real money shot . . . if you'll pardon the pun . . . is a photo of Ron Jeremy as the Penguin. It's GOLD.

Wesley Snipes Is Behind Bars:
Am I the only one who was getting an eerie feeling that WESLEY SNIPES was going to pull a runner and flee the country?
Well, it didn't happen. Wesley turned himself in yesterday to begin his 3-year sentence for failing to pay millions of dollars in taxes.
Snipes . . . who's 48 . . . was convicted in April of 2008, but was allowed to remain free for over two years while he mounted one unsuccessful appeal after another.
Wesley's new home is the McKean Federal Correctional Institution. It's a minimum-security joint in Lewis Run, Pennsylvania . . . which is in the Northwest corner of the state, just south of the New York state border.
E! Online says it's a pretty soft place. In fact, it's got a nickname: McKean the Dream".
Wesley will have dorm-style living quarters, plus a personal radio and 300 phone minutes per month.
But it won't all be a walk in the park. He'll have to work seven hours a day. His job could be anything from landscaping to food service to painting. And he'll make between 12 and 40 cents per hour.
Oh, and he won't be allowed conjugal visits.
Even though his sentence is three years, Snipes is only expected to serve about 26 months . . . as long as he keeps his nose clean.
Chelsea Handler Went After Angelina Jolie Again:
CHELSEA HANDLER went after ANGELINA JOLIE again . . . this time during an interview with KATIE COURIC for "Glamour" magazine.
She said, quote, "I'm not a fan. She just doesn't come off to me as a sincere woman. She seems like a woman that you'd really want to avoid."
But Chelsea had much love for JENNIFER ANISTON . . . quote, "Jennifer makes me laugh. She's irreverent and hilarious, and she sends me really, really funny e-mails."
Elsewhere in the interview, Chelsea talked about her own brand of humor . . . quote, "I think it's important to be politically incorrect. You don't want to be nasty, and you don't want to be malicious.
"But it's okay . . . I mean, funny trumps everything in my mind."
But there ARE lines Chelsea won't cross . . . quote, "I think talking about children and their looks is not nice. Like, unattractive children. I don't do that. And I don't talk about people who are dying. I think that's inappropriate."
Chelsea also discussed being more like a guy when it comes to sex . . . quote, "I'm not a typical girl in the sense that I'm dying to get married or dying to procreate. I don't really have those desires.
"I respect them, but I do feel like more of a guy in that way. And I don't like to be tied down to one person. I don't like long-term commitments."
She also seems to be denying anything happened between her and 50 CENT . . . quote, "He came to my show in New Orleans with 15 people, and they take a photo of us and assume that we're a couple.
"But he's really cute, and I have to be honest, there's a good chance that I will end up hooking up with a rapper at some point."
Aretha Franklin May Leave the Hospital This Weekend:
We still don't know if ARETHA FRANKLIN has pancreatic cancer . . . or any kind of cancer for that matter.
But her cousin, Brenda Corbett, says she's, quote, "doing better than doctors expected", and may head home from the hospital as early as this weekend.
Bea Arthur Was in the Marines During World War 2 . . . and She Got an STD:
Apparently, there's been a rumor going around for many years that BEA ARTHUR was in the Marines in the early 1940s, during World War 2. For some reason, she always denied it.
But thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, Bea's military records are now public. And it's all true.
Bea enlisted in the Marine Corps' Women's Reserve in 1943, and she served for two and a half years . . . working as both a typist and a truck driver.
It appears that Bea was a good soldier . . . although there is one blot on her record.
It seems that a misconduct report was filed against Bea late in 1944 . . . because she CONTRACTED A VENEREAL DISEASE that left her, quote, "incapacitated for duty" for five weeks. Her pay was reduced for that period.
Josh Duhamel Is Sorry for Being a Jerk on a Plane:
JOSH DUHAMEL is finally apologizing for being a jerk last week, and refusing to turn off his phone so his flight could leave.
He was disrespectful toward the flight attendant and wouldn't stop texting, so they kicked him off the plane.
Yesterday, he told "Entertainment Tonight", quote, "I messed up. I feel like an idiot because of it.
"I meant no disrespect to the crew or the flight attendant or any of the people that were on the plane.
"That's just not the person I try to be, and I just wanted a chance to apologize to the people that were affected by it.
"I probably need to check myself into 'BlackBerries Anonymous.'"
Michael Bay Admits That Mistakes Were Made with "Transformers 2":
Director MICHAEL BAY is acknowledging what we've all been thinking for years now: "Transformers 2" wasn't exactly the best movie. But he's also vowing to fix that with the third installment, "Transformers: Dark of the Moon".
He says, quote, "'Transformers 2' was still an entertaining movie, but I think we failed on certain aspects. What we did with this movie is I think we have a much better script, and we got back to basics.
"It's more serious. I got rid of the dorky comedy; I mean we've got two little characters, that's it, but the dorkiness is not there. Dork-free 'Transformers'. It's much more serious. It's still entertaining; it's big looking."
By the way . . . this is going to be Michael Bay's LAST "Transformers" movie. He says, quote, "I think this has gotta be it. I think someone else will take the torch from here.
"It's just that I don't think you could do it again with Shia and everybody, I think it's time to move on."

A&E Has Yanked "The Hasselhoffs" After Just Two Episodes:
A&E is apparently through with "The Hasselhoffs" . . . that new reality show starring DAVID HASSELHOFF and his daughters, HAYLEY and TAYLOR ANN.
They've pulled it from their schedule after just TWO episodes. Naturally, the show seems done, but an A&E spokesperson wouldn't say it was "canceled."
The two episodes that DID air failed to attract an audience. The first drew 718,000 people . . . (--which is less than the population of Columbus, Ohio) . . . and the second one had 505,000 viewers . . . (--or the population of Cleveland, Ohio.)
