The Cricket's Daily 3: London calling
Here's what's happening today in pop culture:
• All eyes will be on London today, with the beginning of the 2012 Summer Olympics. It all starts with the opening ceremonies, so The Guardian helpfully provides us a nice profile of the show's director, filmmaker Danny Boyle. [The Guardian]
• Keira Knightley told Empire magazine that she made a deliberate decision to find roles in independent movies, and steer clear of blockbusters and the fame-whoring that comes with them. "It comes to a point where you think, 'What kind of film can I make that will allow me to live a proper life?' And those tentpole movies make it difficult," she said. [The Huffington Post]
• Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong is joining NBC's singing-competition show "The Voice," as a mentor backstopping Christina Aguilera's team. [Entertainment Weekly]
