We've heard tell that Natalie Portman is set to produce and star in a film adaptation of the bestseller book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Sweet. We think she'll make a lovely zombified Elizabeth Bennett, but a thought did occur to us: Portman is a famous vegan, so how will she react to her character's conspicuous consumption of human flesh? If she's a Method Actor, we daresay she'll have to ease herself back into the world of meat eating to really portray the book accurately onscreen. We recommend getting started with Lobel's Meat Bible: All You Need To Know About Meat and Poultry From America's Master Butchers, ($27) which details the selection and preparation process for every conceivable cut of (non-human) meat, along with lots of great recipes. Start with chicken, then work your way through pork, lamb, and beef, kiddo. Good luck!
