Joy Behar is out… Jenny McCarthy is in? Once Behar makes her exit from The View this August, rumor has it that McCarthy will fill her seat.

A shirtless rapper. An angst-filled record. Gnarling black dobermans. Spiked-out silver body armor. Such is the recipe for what we believe to be the music video for Kanye West‘s controversial Yeezus single “Black Skinhead.” The computer-generated clip reportedly appeared on his minimalistic site last night, although all that remains now is a banner for his upcoming collaboration with A.P.C. West, who’s been forthcoming about his affinity for Pacific Rim and Jean Touitou on Twitter, has yet to speak on the bizarre visual, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it were the real thing. [Huffington Post]

With Comic-Con one week away, Marvel is amping up its promotion of Captain AmericaThe Winter Soldier.

Marvel will present the project with another anticipated sequel, Thor: The Dark World, during the expo’s close on July 20. [L.A. Times]

One of Jay-Z‘s most buzzed-about records from Magna Carta Holy Grail ends in a nod to Miley Cyrus and her novel affinity for twerking.

But I don’t see Mr. Carter shoutin [sic] any of you b—— out,” she tweeted. “#twerkmileytwerk.” [E! Online]

January Jones is on a vigilante streak. See the Mad Men mainstay trade out her bouffants and elbow-length gloves for a Sweetwater revolver as a widowed, wild west dame who’s out to avenge her husband’s murder. [Entertainment Weekly]

George Clooney will be the recipient of the British Academy of Film and Television Art’s highest honor this November. The Oscar-winning bachelor will receive the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in film for being one of the “industry’s true icons.” “His work has captivated audiences from all corners of the globe, and BAFTA Los Angeles is proud to be celebrating his immeasurable contributions to our craft,” said BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Gary Dartnall. [The Hollywood Reporter]
