In a recent interview with the UK's Sunday times Harry Potter series author, JK Rowling, admitted that Hermione should have wed Harry and not Ron. Not So Daily writer, Amanda, gives us her thoughts on Jo's regret.
The onslaught of automobile ads during Sunday's "Big Game" was nauseating, and if you blinked (or rolled your eyes for a moment) you may have missed a tease for a brand new Captain America: The Winter Soldier. See the full trailer, after the jump.

And so we bid farewell to yet another talented entertainer, Philip Seymour Hoffman. What is undoubtedly a sad day in the entertainment industry is also a sad day here at the Not So Daily. We will never again be able to experience Philip Seymour Hoffman. I say experience, because that is what a viewer heads into the theater expecting from Hoffman’s ability to play complex and troubled characters. To watch him play Truman Capote, the role that one him an Oscar, or his terrifying manipulative character in The Master – were true film experiences. We could go down the list of his cinematic achievements tracing all the way back to his role in Twister, but really, we just wanted to express that the loss of a great actor is felt outside of his family and the industry he worked within, we the moviegoers have also experienced a loss.
Hoffman was notoriously a private man, a New York based actor who wasn't a part of the movie star glam, and as circumstances surrounding his death are revealed we know that he was a man who struggled with his own demons. He was a man battling with addiction while creating great art. It is unfortunately a pattern not unknown among actors and writers, and with yet another loss at the hands of our fallible human nature, we say farewell and we hope that his family, friends and fellow actors find their peace.
Given the characters he portrayed and the circumstances of his death, there is a line from a 2008 New York Times Magazine profile that seems hauntingly applicable to the loss of one of our “great” actors. "For me, acting is torturous, and it's torturous because you know it's a beautiful thing," he said. "I was young once, and I said, 'That's beautiful and I want that.' Wanting it is easy, but trying to be great -- well, that's absolutely torturous."
