Dane Cook: Fett Lives

Even though comedian and actor Dane Cook may be enjoying the spotlight as one of the hottest and hardest-working entertainers today, he still can't help but wish he was a mysterious bounty hunter equipped with a jetpack.

"Boba Fett was always my favorite," Cook says. "The whole mystery of Boba made him so appealing. He's just so cool. You wanted to be in that outfit and have all those gadgets with the jetpack. After Return of the Jedi there was a long time where I would not admit he was dead. In my mind, when he went into the Sarlacc pit he fixed his jetpack and flew out 10 minutes later and we just didn't see it. It was like having to admit Santa didn't exist."

Fett isn't the only character that fascinates Cook. "I've always identified most with Han Solo," Cook says. "As a kid, I had the blaster with the buttons on the side that made the sound effects and all that. I would get home from school and put on my brother's vest and my blaster belt. For a long time when I was really young, I thought I was Han Solo. I would sit around and wonder what Han Solo was doing that day and if he was doing a Kessel Run at that moment. I really believed these characters did exist somewhere in the galaxy."

Evanescence album headed for #1

Evanescence is poised to debut at Number One on the Billboard Top 200 with its new album, The Open Door, according to Hits Daily Double. Early sales tracking predicts that the CD will sell between 350,000 and 400,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release. The Open Door came out this past Tuesday (October 3rd) and follows up the band's six-million-selling 2003 major label debut, Fallen.

Singer Amy Lee told us she's not worried about equaling the previous album's sales: "I just haven't ever looked at it that way. Fallen is a great record, but I don't think you can try to match the success of another body of work. I think that's only gonna frustrate you. And if, honestly if what you really care about is record sales and money, there's no way you're gonna make a great piece of art, because then you're just gonna get all confused and make something ingenuine."

The sophomore album from the Killers, Sam's Town, is expected to land right behind Evanescence at Number Two, with sales north of 300,000.

Evanescence recorded The Open Door while dealing with its guitarist having a stroke, a legal battle with its former manager, and Lee's public break-up with Seether's Shaun Morgan.

EXCLUSIVE: Candy Spelling Is 'Thrilled' Tori's Pregnant

Tori Spelling's mother, Candy, has commented for the first time about her daughter's pregnancy – and she sounds like any proud grandmother-to-be.

"I'm thrilled and ecstatic," she tells PEOPLE, "and if Aaron were here, I know how thrilled he would also be to share in such a happy occasion."

Aaron Spelling – Candy's husband and Tori's father – died in June at age 83. On Tuesday, sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Tori is 14 weeks pregnant with her first child with husband Dean McDermott.

Candy Spelling's comment could signal a thawing in what has been a tense relationship between mother and daughter. In June, Tori, 33, told PEOPLE she was upset that she first heard of her father's death from a friend: "I was devastated. I thought I had some time (to see him). And I was saddened that the news had not come from my mother."

Candy quickly responded with a statement reading, "We are deeply saddened that, during our time of loss and grief, we are forced to respond to the media frenzy caused by the mean-spirited and surprising comments made by Tori to the press

''[Dawson] is comfortable with herself,'' says Aroch. ''She doesn't need a second opinion to know that she looks good. We were able to riff and try different things. It made for a fun day. She was great in front of the camera. She really loves it.'' Originally, the baked goods were intended as a snack, not a prop. ''We gave her a cupcake. She just walked onto the set and that was one of the first couple frames I snapped. It feels real. That's my favorite kind of picture — when you have a beautiful girl just being cute.''

I met Adam Brody!

Today at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, Adam Brody along with Luke Perry of 90210 were supporting Democratic Senator Candidate Sherrod Brown.
I'm not going to lie, the ONLY reason I went was to see Adam Brody. Pathetic, yes. But thats my life. Here is a short clip of Adam's speech (which was maybe 5 minutes long all together). And I got to take my pic with him so theres a pic of that too.

This is part 2 of an interview with Proj Run producer Andy Cohen & my favorite contestant ever, Santino. It's long, but there's a hilarious part where Santino goes off on him for insinuating that he had sex with a 35D boy. I made it bigger so you don't have to skim through.
