You all might remember back in August there was an entry about Andrew Ference, talking about his very awesome excursion to Tanzania as an athlete ambassador with the Right to Play organization. Well, he's back at it, the crazy hippie.
This time it's Andrew Ference (working with the NHLPA) trying to save the environment, becoming the first of the four major sports leagues to implement an eco-friendly system of some kind.
Growing up in the wide-open country of northern Alberta, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference never considered himself an environmentalist.
But over the course of his childhood, he was always around people who cared about environmental issues. He, too, saw his interest in the planet grow. Now, he's heavily entrenched in environmental activism.
"We all have our personal choices trying to make a difference and do all you can, but at the end of the day, if you're the only guy doing it, it doesn't matter," he said. "You need to get after it. That's when the true power comes in. If you tell 10 people and it sticks with four, still, that's something."
As a result, Ference, a 28-year-old Edmonton native who rides his bike to TD Banknorth Garden on game days, buys organic food and owns two hybrid cars, started and is spearheading the NHLPA's Carbon Neutral Challenge campaign.

My love for Andrew Ference cannot be expressed in words.
We caught Zac Efron on the set of his new movie Seventeen, which is being shot here in sunny Southern California. This is Zac’s second post-High School Musical movie and it’s good to see that he’s taking it so seriously dressed in short sleeves, shorts and Nike’s. OK I’m kidding! He’s dressed like that because the scene being filmed is actually a backyard basketball scene. So he is actually in costume! Zac must have skipped breakfast or acting must be pretty hard work because Zac’s not messing around with the craft services. Check out those guns he’s sporting! I’m not sure if Zac’s going to be singing in ‘Seventeen’ but he sure ain’t messing around when it comes to his image.

The feud brewing between Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, which was allegedly sparked after Paris passed right by the birthday girl at Brit's recent bash, just got a little nastier. According to the Daily Star, Britney is threatening Paris: Shape up as friend or pay the price.
“Britney and her pals wrote to Paris and told her they are hearing rumors of a new sex-tape scandal, similar to the ‘One Night In Paris’ footage her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon put on the Web four years ago,” an insider told the Daily Star. “The letter also claims the tape shows footage of Paris locking lips with one of Britney’s female friends at a party.”
The correspondence wasn’t just FYI, as it warned Paris, “If she continues being rude to people, the footage will be leaked online.” The source added, “Britney and her pals also end their note by telling Paris they look forward to hearing back from her.”
But Paris isn’t exactly shaking in her stylish boots over the threat, a source close to the heiress assured DS. “It’s obvious Britney and her bratty pals are being silly. Paris laughed when she got the letter, supposedly from Britney and said it was ‘crap.’
Why this is fake:
Britney and Paris were not arguing or ignoring eachother the other night, they were partying together until 4am.
Britney cannot write a letter in this state, it's impossible.
The Daily Star? Puh-lease.
Why the fuck would Britney have Paris sex-tapes? Seriously??
This was just LOL-worthy.
And just because I wanted to.

Mike Patton (ex-Faith No More/Mr. Bungle, etc.) will be lending his vocal talents to a few upcoming films and video games, here's the official word:
"Mike Patton (ex-Faith No More, Mr. Bungle and currently of Peeping Tom, Fantomas and Mondo Cane amongst others) steps into the world of film with "I Am Legend" and "A Perfect Place." Patton's shape-shifting vocals will be heard in movie theaters across the country this month as he lends his voice to the dreaded creatures in "I Am Legend," the post-apocalyptic film set for release on Dec. 14. Next up is Patton's debut as a film composer with the film noir short, "A Perfect Place." The 20-plus minute film also marks the directorial debut of Derrick Scocchera, one of the founders of Fantoma Films, best known for their catalog of rare, cult films reissued on DVD. The score creatively reflects the style and tone of the film, which focuses on a pair of bumbling friends trying to dispose of a body. The film, shot in anamorphic black and white, will be packaged as a double-disc with the score and distributed together via Ipecac Recordings in March of 2008. While Patton's film work is relatively new, he's previously appeared in 2005's award-winning independent film "Firecracker" and has already provided vocals to several videogames including "The Darkness" and "Portal." 2008 finds him as the lead in videogame "Bionic Commando" and contributing vocal effects to "Left 4 Dead.""

Hilary Duff has no problem admitting she's very much in love with her boyfriend of a few months, New York Islanders’ hockey star Mike Comrie, whom she met on a trip to the Adirondack Mountains. But when it comes to talk of marriage, the actress says she's not rushing to walk down the aisle.
“I’m definitely not ready to get married,” the 20-year-old cutie confesses in the January issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale Dec. 11. “I think a reason that people in this business get married young is that they feel like everything comes to them sooner in life. It's normal to be like 'Okay, what's next?'”
In the interview Hilary also discusses her body image, admitting, "There definitely was a time, about a year and a half ago, when I was pretty obsessed with my body and my weight." However, the actress says she's outgrown the figure fixation. "It's not attractive when girls get superskinny. Guys don't like it. Girls don't like you as much. You lose some happiness when that's all you think about."

According to a press release, Usher’s little brother James Lackey aka “J Lack”signed a publishing deal with EMI. The deal was brokered by his mom Jonetta Patton who has taken on her youngest son as a client since her oldest son kicked her to the curb.

He produced the super annoying single “Get It Shorty” for Lloyd and he reportedly contributed a couple of tracks to Usher’s new album.I know he's up there somewhere celebrating being the "favorite son" now.

NBC has firmed up its lineup for this winter, bringing back Medium to Monday night and launching its new reality series Baby Borrowers. The network promises some 85 hours of scripted programming during the first-quarter of 2008, though the lineup looks like it will feature some 11 hours of reality programming each week as well. The fourth season of Medium will launch in the show's original 10 p.m. Monday slot on Jan. 7. This upcoming season features Anjelica Huston in a six-episode arc. It will be preceded on Mondays by Deal or No Deal at 9 and American Gladiators at 8. Once Gladiators wraps its season, Baby Borrowers will get is premiere on Monday, Feb. 18. The new show puts real babies in the care of rowdy teenagers in an attempt to teach them a lesson in responsibility. NBC's other midseason series are 1 vs. 100, The Celebrity Apprentice, The Biggest Loser, newcomer Lipstick Jungle, Law & Order, and a repurposed Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Kiefer Sutherland, starting Day 3 of his 48-day sentence for DUI and a probation violation, is a "model prisoner," says a spokesman for the Glendale City Jail.
"He's not happy to be here," Officer John Balian says, "but you can tell from his demeanor that he's sorry and takes responsibility for what's he's done."
Sutherland spent his first full day on Thursday folding jail laundry. He also had cornflakes for breakfast, a turkey sandwich for lunch and chicken a la king for dinner.
The 24 actor, who is housed alone in a cell, has also been assigned to serve meals to the other eight to 10 inmates, one of whom was recently arrested for attempted murder – on four people.
"But we don't put murderers or rapists who are awaiting trial in the same area as a guy convicted of a DUI," Balian explains, adding that Sutherland, as an inmate worker, has access alone to one of three common rooms, each with a television.
The only interaction Sutherland will have with other inmates is when he slides a tray of food through slots in their cell doors.
He also has shower access twice a day.
As of Thursday evening, Sutherland had not had any visitors. However, Balian says that the actor brought several books to keep him busy.
The jail spokesman reiterates that Sutherland will do the full 48 days straight without early release:
"There's no way he's getting out early, unless a judge orders otherwise, which is highly unlikely," he says.
LC Makes 'Life-Changing' Decision in Hills Finale
She’s not revealing many details, but Lauren Conrad says she makes a “life-changing” decision in the season-three finale of MTV’s The Hills, which airs Monday—and she’s happy with the choice she made.
“I gotta be honest, I haven’t seen the final episode yet,” Conrad told PEOPLE at the magazine’s 50th Grammy Awards Kick-Off Party on Thursday. “I know that something happens in our lives, but I don’t know what they’re showing. … Something very exciting happens in my life. I can’t tell you what, obviously, because it has to air, but it was a life-changing something.”
Conrad reportedly is offered a second chance at living in Paris—something she turned down at the end of season one to be with Jason Wahler. Conrad isn’t confirming that, but does say she had a choice to make, and is happy with her decision.
Does it have anything to do with Brody Jenner? “I mean, a little bit, but mostly do to with me,” she says. “I have to make a very big decision—which I made, which I’m very happy with now.”
As the third season wraps, Conrad added that it’s been interesting seeing the viewership change—and even skew a bit older.
“When I did Laguna [Beach], it was all younger, younger kids,” she says, “but most of the people that I talk to (now) are like mid-30s.”
We were going to put "Declare Independence" at the top of our list of New Year's resolutions, but with Björk's third Volta single of the same name coming out January 1, 2008 via One Little Indian in the UK, it's like she's done it for us. Now the Icelandic singer has revealed the full details of the single, which will come in CD/DVD, download, and 12" formats.
Jarring remixes from Matthew Herbert, Björk's former Sugarcubes bandmate Einar Örn's Ghostigital, and Mark Stent all appear on each version of the single. The two-disc CD/DVD comes augmented with the song's recently Forkcasted Michel Gondry video, Björk's sixth video collaboration with the French director. The download, exclusive to iTunes, features the same tracklist as the CD/DVD, including the video.
Fans have a few more chances to see Björk live (with Ratatat!) before the resolutions kick in, but her 2008 world tour dates remain intact.

Sometimes murder mysteries focus on innocent people who have had their lives ripped away, and sometimes they focus on people who have a lot of skeletons in their closet. This time around, it's the latter, and it's full of corrupt cops, booze, and mysterious death. The Hollywood Reporter has posted that the cast has come into place on an upcoming indie film, helmed by Brian Jun, called The Thacker Case. This is actually based on a true story of the 1983 wrongful death case of a man named Kevin Thacker -- one that was adapted by Robert Dean Klein, from a story by attorney Stuart Pepper. As THR describes it: "The story centers on around [sic] the mysterious death of repeat drunk driving offender Thacker, and the discovery of his body in an alley behind the Mashalltown, Iowa, police department after his latest DUI arrest."
The players will be -- Eliza Dushku (Buffy), Gabriel Mann (The Bourne Supremacy), and John Savage (Carnivale). Mann is playing Pepper, the author of the original piece, who is "a young up-and-coming attorney who launches his career by landing the controversial case, which required him to wade through law enforcement corruption and cover-ups." Dushku is taking her arse-kicking down a touch and will be his loyal assistant, Monica Wright, and Savage will play Thacker's father, "who enlists the help of Pepper to discover the truth behind his son's death."
Production began this week in Los Angeles and Iowa, after a recent casting call. The specs are still online, so dip into the jump for some character particulars for the movie, courtesy of igotmuse. Warning: There are no big spoilers, but if you're touchy about details, refrain from jumping.
She played a period character in "The Wings of the Dove." She was the dirty lover in "Fight Club" and a chimpanzee love interest in "Planet of the Apes," but who knew that all Helena Bonham Carter ever wanted to do was ... sing?
BUT, he was wrong. It seems that DJ Larry Flick may have been psyched out by a fan-made album cover that's been floating around the internet since August.
Talented artist Robster had made the fake cover and called the album Licorice - so unless Madonna has started to name her albums after being inspired by her fans artwork then the suggested album title (which is now all over the internet as confirmed in various news reports) is probably not true....but fans did like the name!
Here is a look at the FAKE fan made cover that maybe confused the press.
High School Musical stud Zac Efron, 20, says that his dancing moves and singing skills are useless, because they do not impress girls. Zac, who is dating HSM costar Vanessa Hudgens, 18, was never able to win over women with his musical talents. He revealed:
“It doesn’t work (singing and dancing). I’ve tried. Conversation always works best. There’s probably only one instance I can think of when singing to a girl worked for me. As for dancing, you can’t really go up to a girl and bust in on a cool dance move. It just doesn’t work. I’ve tried that, too. It’s not that cool.”
Well, I'm sure Zac's fierce posing skills helped him hook up with Baby V. What do you think?
Amy Winehouse is still reeling from her recent woes – scrapping her U.K. tour and coping with her husband's incarceration. But singer and music producer Mark Ronson tells PEOPLE that his good friend is doing well and getting "psyched" for her six Grammy nominations.
"She's good," says Ronson, 32, who produced much of Winehouse's record-of-the-year candidate, Back to Black. "I called her today because the record was something that we went through together ... Hopefully she will get into America so we can celebrate."
(The singer's October pot bust in Norway could cause her visa difficulties. She's now appealing the charge.)
Winehouse, 24, is also up for best new artist and song of the year for "Rehab." So what was her reaction?
"Amy doesn't get excited about anything," Ronson explains. "She was never once excited while in the studio. And today she is just like, 'Yeah, Ronnie, chops, we got Grammy nominations.' That's her. But she is happy and psyched."
ok, half the reason I posted this was just so I could google mark ronson pictures and drool
The adage goes, “Sex sells,” and one of its biggest sales-women is Trina. The Dade County queen has been in the game and has dropped jaws since her appearance in Trick Daddy’s "Nann Nigga." Ever since 1999, Trina has been trying to remain constant and innovative in, not only her appearance, but her musical growth as well. As the south has continued to concrete its foundation as one of the dominant superpowers in hip-hop, Trina’s new album Still Da Baddest looks like it’ll be her most innovative joint to date. Not only is the album a rebirth, but she has left her label – Atlantic for EMI.
HipHopDX talks with Trina – still “da baddest” one – as she talks about her happiest “Single Again” moment, spreads love for the newest members of Slip-N-Slide records and expresses how marketing can help more female emcees get out there in the game.
HipHopDX: Your name was in a lot of people’s mouths this year and your new album hasn’t even dropped yet. How does that feel?
Trina: [Laughs] I think that it’s great when people talk about me. It means that I worked extremely hard. Even without an album, my name stays in a circular motion, so I have to be doing something right for someone to talking.

Scottish actor EWAN McGREGOR was shocked when he recently visited a STAR WARS filming location in Tunisia - as wasn't recognised by a single fan.
The small town of Matmata, which featured in 1977's Star Wars, is visited daily by busloads of tourists - but when the 36-year-old stopped in the North African country during his epic motorcycle journey earlier this year (07), not one of the film's devotees spotted him.
McGregor, who plays Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels, says, "(We went to) the place where Luke Skywalker grew up in the films. I was standing next to my own poster there - the place was full of Star Wars fans, and no one even recognised me."
If I were one of these people and learned about this, I'd probably iron my hands like Dobby to punish myself.
The second season of “Friday Night Lights,” the critically acclaimed drama set on and off a Texas football field, has managed to attract no more than 7.5 million viewers a week.
Fans could say NBC is partly to blame; the Friday time slot the show now occupies is sometimes considered a death sentence. Twenty percent of viewers record the show and watch it later, according to Nielsen data.
But “Friday Night Lights” has one fact in its favor: despite ranking No. 53 in the 18- to 49-year-old demographic this season, it is the second most “upscale” series on television (behind the NBC comedy “The Office”).

As the writers' strike wears on, Tina Fey gets to spend a lot more time with her 2-year-old daughter Alice – and is finding out just how grown-up the little one is becoming.
"She's hilarious," Fey, 37, tells PEOPLE. "She's really starting to talk in full sentences, and she has her opinions and she's a little bit learning how to lie."
"She's at this age where I'll say, 'I have to change your diaper,' and she'll say, 'No, no, because it's all gone. Diaper all gone.' And I'll say, 'That's a lie.' Or I'll say, 'Eat your vegetables,' and she'll say, 'No, I can't, they're dirty.' She's a very funny, sweet kid."
PEOPLE spoke with Fey and her husband, Jeff Richmond, at "An Evening With 30 Rock," a panel discussion with the NBC show's cast Thursday night inside New York's Puck Building and sponsored by the American Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
Richmond, a composer, also remarked on Alice's precociousness – in particular, her expanding taste in music.
"She likes Mary Poppins," said Richmond, 47. "She sings 'Just a Spoonful of Sugar,' that's her tour de force. ... We were trying to teach her some Amy Winehouse the other day – just the 'No, no, no' part."
It also sounds like Alice, who was born in September 2005, is already brushing up on world events, with some help from CNN.
"Oh yeah, she topical," Richmond said. "She can't differentiate between all the colors – even though she knows all the color names – but she knows who Anderson Cooper is."
On the subject of the strike, Fey said she wants to be working again – but is thankful to have the extra time to spend with her family.
"I have 1,000 percent more time with Alice," she said. "I'm as tired as I was when I was working, because a 2-year-old will wear you out, but that's the only blessing in this strike situation for me."

The Heroes actress,18, will be joined at the early-morning announcement Dec. 13 by at least one other star who has yet to be revealed.
There's a good chance she'll announce her own show. Last year, NBC's Heroes ended up in the running for drama series but lost to Grey's Anatomy.
The 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards will be televised Jan. 13 on NBC.
Friends may have ended in 2004, but the successful series lives on in syndication, and a reunion hasn't been ruled out by one of the Central Perk regulars, Courteney Cox.
"I don't think so," Cox, 43, tells Us Weekly in its latest issue. "But I would never say 100 percent no."
And what would her Friends character, Monica Geller, be up to now?
"She's running her suburb and in charge of the PTA," hypothesized Cox, now the star of FX's Dirt. "She's driving Chandler crazy, and he's probably driving her crazy too."
And like Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, Cox plans to spend Christmas with her family — husband David Arquette, 36, and CoCo, 3 — "someplace warm" where "there will be no Santa Ana winds."

What’s more, he says, it was all a big publicity stunt on the part of the restaurant. “This was done by the stupid restaurant to get publicity,” he said. “…it’s not my signature.”
That’s right, “you’re fired!” is his signature!
“I don’t want to mention the person’s name - it wasn’t my real father - but somebody hurt my mom and me, I had to deal with that from seven all the way to 13. It affected me, especially (my behaviour) towards women - I treat them differently. I don’t want to put a woman through the same thing that person put my mom through. I was scared and timid when I was little. I used to pee in my bed… I think it was me being nervous, and scared to get up (out of bed) and see what was going on. My mom used to try and hide it from me and my sister, but we knew. Anybody that’s going through it, just try to deal with it, talk it out.”– Chris Brown

The number of Spears-related items sold at the online auction site totaled 34,345, compared with 27,377 items associated with Hilton, eBay said this week.
Items associated with Spears ranged from signed CDs to disposable lighters featuring her likeness. Among the Hilton-related items sold: a toothbrush claimed to have been found in the hotel heiress' trash.
Fragrances were the most popular product category sold for Spears and Hilton.
Both fared better than Lindsay Lohan. Her name was only associated with 8,099 items sold, according to eBay.
However, the three tabloid staples were all outslugged by Barry Bonds, who was pegged to 145,497 related items, including a grilled-cheese sandwich, which netted a winning bid of $30. The seller claimed Bonds' 756th home-run ball bounced off the sandwich in San Francisco's AT&T Park.
Among the searches for movie franchise-themed merchandise, "Transformers" crushed "Harry Potter" with 442,342 related items sold compared with the boy wizard's 344,825 related baubles. Not surprisingly, wares in the action-figure category made up 71 percent of sales associated with the robots in disguise.

Rupert Everett believes that his homosexuality has prevented him from becoming a major Hollywood star. The 48-year-old is convinced that he is just as good an actor as Hugh Grant and would be as successful as him if he were not gay. He said: "It's not ideal to be homosexual in my business. For instance, I'm every bit as good as Hugh Grant, and I can do the same sort of thing, but look at the roles he gets. He's always working, and I work hardly ever."

DONALD TRUMP's 58-year-old ex-wife IVANA has vowed no expense will be spared for her forthcoming wedding to ROSSANO RUBICONDI.
The couple will exchange nuptials at Donald Trump's Florida estate, where the billionaire and his third wife Melanie Knauss held their wedding reception in January 2005.
And Ivana has revealed her plans for the big day - which will see the bride accompanied by 15 bridesmaids and a full orchestra.
She says, "I'm just starting the guest list. I've already got 800-plus people and I'm going to have a 30-piece orchestra and 15 bridesmaids."
HOLLYWOOD - Will Smith's new movie I Am Legend has suffered a major box office setback in the Far East--Chinese film bosses have banned it from their cinemas.
The Hollywood actor has been campaigning to secure a release for I Am Legend, but China is stubbornly sticking to its policy of capping the influx of Hollywood movies--part of a drive to boost the country's film industry.
The delay comes amid reports China has issued a three-month ban on all American films.
Smithsays, "We struggled very, very hard to try to get it to work out, but there are only a certain amount of foreign films that are allowed in."
However, the Oscar-nominated actor hasn't given up hope of agreeing a release date--he's currently working on a deal with China Film Group's chairman Han Sanping.
In the past, Chinese regulators have issued bans on foreign films during holidays and school breaks, when audiences are biggest.
In the past, Carrie Underwood has revealed that she tries to exercise as much as possible (up to four or five times a week), and the small-town girl has dropped a significant amount of weight since she won American Idol and became a big-city dweller. Now Carrie has admitted in the new issue of Glamour magazine that her infatuation with food goes way beyond the norm. "I'm slightly obsessive-compulsive about what I eat, more than I should be," the vegetarian says. "I write down everything I eat. I started doing it last year and in the last year is when I've gotten more healthy and lost weight." But is it really healthy to pay such close attention to what you eat?
Although the 24-year-old admits she allows herself to splurge sometimes (most often on cheese), Carrie told Self magazine last month that sometimes her food intake goes beyond a splurge. "I have a big problem controlling myself with the cheese. I can eat a pound of it." And considering that there are 1800 calories in a pound of cheddar, it's not surprising the "Before He Cheats" singer pretty much lives on a treadmill. But hopefully her workouts are only intense when she overindulges, otherwise fans might start calling her Carrie Underweight!Source-- http://www.pagesix.com/story/carrie+food+obsessed

As a new round of bargaining got underway, the WGA Friday morning expressed concerns over rumors that the AMPTP might soon cut off talks and challenged the AMPTP to keep negotiating through the holidays.
"Highly placed executives have been telling some of our writers that the companies are preparing to abruptly cut off negotiations," the WGA missive read. "They say the companies plan to accuse the WGA of stalling and being unwilling to negotiate, and that the companies will use that as an excuse to walk out.
"The Writers Guilds of America, West and East are going on record now that any such claims are absolutely untrue. We have been at the negotiating table every day, willing to bargain. Furthermore, we hereby challenge the AMPTP to negotiate in good faith, day and night, through the Christmas and New Year's holidays - whatever is necessary - to get this done and get the town back to work. The Writers Guilds will remain at the table every day, for as long as it takes, to make a fair deal."
Email also expressed concerns over rumors that "one or more of the companies are prepared to throw away the spring and fall TV season, plus features, and prolong the strike. Aside from the devastating effect this would have on the unions, workers, and their families in this industry, it would certainly explain the AMPTP's refusal to put any new proposals, even a bad one, on the table."
Guild began its email to members by seeming to accuse the AMPTP of dragging its feet in making new offers.
"On Thursday, we met at 10am, and they told us their new proposals would be ready shortly," the email said. "At 5pm, they told us their proposals still weren't ready, that they would be working on them late into the night, and that we should come back this morning at 10am. The fact that we saw everyone from the AMPTP leave the building by 6:45pm is not a promising sign."
Despite the tough words, negotiations were scheduled to resume this morning.

Bow Wow Rushed To The Hospital After Concert
MC suffering from 'stress and exhaustion,' his label says.
Bow Wow gave his camp a scare Thursday night when the 20-year-old rapper had to be rushed to a Cincinnati hospital after his concert performance at the U.S. Bank Arena.
Bow is said to be doing well but is still in the hospital undergoing tests. His record company, Sony Music, said in a statement on Friday (December 7) that the young superstar appears to be suffering from "stress and exhaustion."
Not only has Bow been one of the top-line acts on his current tour with Chris Brown, Sean Kingston, Soulja Boy, Lil Mama and others, but he's also been all over the world during the past few months promoting Face Off, his joint LP with Omarion, which drops Tuesday.
The tour hits Chicago on Friday night, but Bow will not be cleared to take the stage, according to Sony.
"He loves them and will be sure to come back to Chicago soon!" his company said of what Bow wants to express to fans.
Bow is expected to return to the tour very shortly, and as an added bonus, Omarion will be joining the tour on some select dates, which have yet to be announced. If you listen to the duo's new LP, you can expect Bow and O to hit the road with a full show of their own in 2008. On the title track, Bow proclaims, "Rest in peace to the Scream Tour. It's the Face Off tour next summer."

Michelle Williams (I'm Not There, Brokeback Mountain) is in final negotiations to play the wife of Leonardo DiCaprio's character in the Martin Scorsese-directed Shutter Island, for Paramount Pictures. She also joins Ben Kingsley and Mark Ruffalo in the drama, based on Dennis Lehane's 2004 novel, about a pair of U.S. marshals (DiCaprio and Ruffalo) who travel to a Massachusetts island to investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane. The two get trapped on the island when a hurricane hits and a violent inmate riot breaks out. Williams is set to play the dead wife who haunts DiCaprio's character. Kingsley has just been cast as the hospital's enigmatic chief physician who reluctantly hosts to the two marshals. Shooting is scheduled to start in March. Williams got an Oscar nod for her role in 2005's Brokeback, and she will next appear in Fox's The List and writer-director Charlie Kaufman's Synecdoche, New York. She stars with Gael Garcia Bernal in Swedish director Lukas Moodysson's first English-language movie, Mammoth, which is currently in production.
I'm still sad she & Heath broke up, tbh. And I'm sold on anything involving Leo and Marty. ♥
Anne Hathaway will star alongside Kate Hudson in New Regency's romantic comedy Bride Wars, which is being directed by Gary Winick (13 Going on 30). Hathaway and Hudson will play best friends who get into a rift when their planned wedding dates clash. Neither one will step aside, so the two pals compete over venues, services, and guests. Hudson is also producing with Julie Yorn and Alan Riche. Shooting will start early next year using a script written pre-strike by June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson. Hathaway recently played Agent 99 in Warner Bros. Get Smart, which also starred Steve Carell.
I like her OK, but this just looks bad. :P When will they stop with the boring romantic comedies?

Popular for her music, clothing line and perfume, singer Gwen Stefani is adding college scholarships to her repertoire.
The Gwen Stefani After-the-Fires Scholarship will be open to graduating high school seniors and college students who lost their homes and/or source of income in the October wildfires. Stefani donated $166,000 in proceeds from her Oct. 30 San Diego concert to the San Diego Foundation fire relief fund.
“When I heard about the devastation of the fires, at first I felt I should cancel my show out of respect,” Stefani said in a prepared statement. “But then it occurred to me there might be a more useful solution.”
How many students who would benefit from Stefani's fund has not been determined.
In addition to her scholarships, a $10,000 fund set up by an anonymous donor was announced Thursday for seniors attending a tribal charter high school in San Diego County.
Meanwhile, the San Diego Foundation's annual scholarship program will include scholarships to help those affected by the fires. Details about those scholarships will be released in about two weeks, officials said.
Fueled by Santa Ana winds, the series of wildfires began Oct. 21 and forced 600,000 residents from their homes. The fires killed at least 10 people and destroyed more than 1,700 homes.
For information on scholarships offered by the San Diego Foundation, visit www.sdfoundation.org. Students can download the Common Scholarship Application, which allows them to apply for more than 75 scholarships by submitting one application and one set of materials.

Letter from Japanese Government to Hayden
While respecting Ms. Panettierre’s personal feelings towards dolphins and her commitment to travel to Taiji to make her protest, I hope that your viewers will be reassured by the fact that Japan is carefully managing marine living resources for the future. The government’s fisheries policies are based on scientific information and take into account the opinions of the public.
Fisheries Attache, Embassy of Japan
Dear Mr. Fukuda,
Rest assured our viewers and the public at large is appalled by Japanese whaling and fisheries practices. Even within your own country, recent polls show that over 77% of the Japanese public is against whaling while only 11% support it.
To say that Japan is carefully managing marine living resources for the future is a joke. Recent scientific studies have shown that over 90% of the world’s large fish have been depleted by over-fishing and Japan’s own factory-fishing fleets are largely responsible for this, decimating one species after another. Just recently, Japan was found to be in violation of its quota on endangered blue fin tuna. I cannot find one example where Japan has carefully managed any marine species.
In regards to dolphins and whales, Japan’s blatant disregard for these species is unfathomable. Japan is cruelly and needlessly butchering over 20,000 dolphins and other small cetaceans every year. There is no humane way to kill a dolphin or whale and scientific research shows that dolphin and whale meat is unhealthy for human consumption. Your own Government studies show dolphin and whale meat can contain up to 10-16 times the healthful level of mercury and that elevated levels of mercury have been proven to cause birth defects, neural damage, and death. As a result, several Japanese supermarket chains have pulled dolphin and whale meat from their shelves due to the health risks. Despite this however, your fisheries agency continues to advocate for the needless killing of dolphins and whales.
In addition, your whaling fleet is now planning to kill over 1,000 whales in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary including endangered fin and humpback whales. There is nothing scientific about this slaughter. All the data being collected can be and is being collected through non-lethal means by bona-fide scientists, not bogus scientists like yours.
Recently, a representative for Japan’s fisheries agency said:
“Whales are just as important, and no more special, than any other fish,” says Japan Fisheries Agency spokesperson Hideki Moronuki, maintaining Japan’s long-held position that marine mammals should get no special treatment for being warm-blooded.
Your scientists can’t even tell the difference between a marine mammal and a fish. Do you realize how ignorant Japan looks to the rest of the world? Please be advised that we are telling all consumers to not purchase any Japanese made products until Japan stops killing dolphins and whales and we will be vigilant in this regard. We are determined to end Japan’s brutally cruel and needless slaughter of dolphins and whales and I will do everything within my power to ensure this.

Hannah Montana starlet Miley Cyrus, 15, confessed to Twist magazine her true feelings on kissing costar Cody Linley, 18, on set in front of her boyfriend! Miley revealed:
"I was like, 'Oh my gosh, he is an angel!' I was always give him a hard time about it because then after the show the crowd was like, 'Kiss her!' And I had a boyfriend then, and he came and watched that episode. They didn't write the kiss in until about an hour before we started shooting. We weren't supposed to kiss and then finally they were like, 'You have to do it.' So they wrote it in and I had already planned for my boyfriend at the time to come..
..So then when they were asking us to kiss without the camera on I couldn't do it. I'm so disappointed, I wish I would have just done it. But at one point they weren't even filming anymore I made him they they were so I could kiss him one more time!"
And on another kissing scene with Rico, Miley said:
"Well I had to kiss Moises who plays Rico on Hannah Montana and I was like, 'Guys, this is seriously not fair. You owe me no kissing scenes for a month unless it's Cody Linley!'"
Yikes, it sounds like things get pretty crazy on the Hannah Montana set! Good thing Miley is dating Nick Jonas now. It looks like her kissing days with Cody Linley are just a thing of the past?
Striking writers, studios break off talks again
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Contract talks between striking screenwriters and Hollywood studios broke down again on Friday after four straight days of negotiations, the industry's bargaining representative said in a statement.
There was no immediate response from the Writers Guild of America, which represents the 10,500 film and TV writers who have been on strike since an earlier round of negotiations collapsed on November 5, triggering the worst labor crisis to hit Hollywood in nearly 20 years.
"We're disappointed to report that talks between the AMPTP and WGA have broken down yet again," the studios' statement said. "We're puzzled and disheartened by an ongoing WGA negotiating strategy that seems designed to delay or derail talks rather than facilitate an end to this strike."
According to Nikki Finke, the AMPTP issued a deal on internet streaming, on the condition that the WGA stopped asking for regulations on reality tv and animation. An hour later after issuing their offer, the AMPTP walked out of the talks. For her full coverage, check out DeadlineHollywoodDaily.

Stressed-Out Bow Wow Rushed to Hospital
Posted Dec 7th 2007 4:38PM by TMZ Staff
Filed under: Music, Nurse!
Rapper Bow Wow (he's not lil' anymore, people!) was rushed to a Cincinnati hospital Thursday night after a performance there.
According to a statement issued by his record label, the 20-year-old is suffering from "stress and exhaustion." They also said that although his tour with Chris Brown, Sean Kingston and Soulja Boy is heading to Chicago tonight, Bow Wow won't be on stage.
As for his Chicago fans, a Sony rep said, "He loves them and will be sure to come back to Chicago soon!"
In 2003, one year prior to the release of American Idiot, Green Day secretly released an album titled Money Money 2020 under the name The Network. The sound was a mix of punk and new-wave and featured Billie Joe, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool switching off on vocal duties.
Four years after its release, Buzznet's own DJ Rossstar has just uncovered a new Green Day side-project by the name of Foxboro Hot Tubs. The sound takes you back to the '60s yet has that distinct Billie Joe sound in the vocals.
We discovered this news based on a tip from a source close to Green Day. There's a Foxboro Hot Tubs Web site that is currently just a graphic of a moving clock and you can hear three Foxboro Hot Tubs tracks here! A free downloadable six song album is coming soon.
I actually really love the sound of this. 'Mother Mary' is quite catchy.
And sometimes I feel like the Green Day side projects sound much better than Green Day.

Los Angeles Superior Court judge Scott Millington issued the no-bail bench warrant and revoked Baldwin's probation after he failed to appear "without sufficient excuse" and without his lawyer, according to court documents.
An after-hours call to Baldwin's attorney, Grant Hoagland, was not immediately returned.
Baldwin, brother of actors William, Stephen and Alec Baldwin, was required to meet with the judge connection with a cocaine-possession case.
The case stemmed from the 47-year-old actor's arrest last year, when police found him and another man in a Santa Monica motel, possessing cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
Baldwin is undergoing treatment in hopes of getting two misdemeanor charges dismissed. Under California law, some drug offenders who obtain treatment can have the charges dropped upon successful completion of their rehabilitation.
At a progress report in February, Hoagland said Baldwin had passed 20 drug tests and was sober for 92 days.
Baldwin later opened up about his cocaine addiction in a series of confessional video diaries that were shown on ABC News' "Primetime." The video charted his progress through a three-month drug treatment program in Malibu.
"I've been very thorough in my recovery, and identified where I am powerless," Baldwin said. "And I'm truly powerless over cocaine. There's no question about that in my life."
Baldwin has appeared in the television series "Homicide: Life on the Street" and the movie "Car 54, Where Are You?"

First Buffy, then Scrubs, eventually Ugly Betty and maybe House? TV Guide reports that the cast of FOX's House would like to do a musical episode. Jennifer Morrison, who plays Allison Cameron, claims that since most of the actors on the show have some sort of musical background, they have been poking the writers to have the doctors break into song!
Desperate Housewives actor Jesse Metcalfe has been spotted heading back to his girlfriend, Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle’s house with an armful of dry cleaning, showing that the couple are probably back on track.
According to reports, Jesse arrived at Nadine’s London pad wearing a dark grey hoody, shorts and red socks as he scurried from his car to avoid the paparazzi.
28-year-old Jesse - who reportedly proposed to Nadine, 22, at G.A.Y nightclub last week – later appeared at the door to pay for a take-away and ducked back inside clutching the bag of food.
The couple, however, are yet to confirm their engagement.
NEW YORK - As the writers strike heads into its sixth week, your favorite scripted dramas and comedies are continuing to dwindle.
The networks plan lots of new programs for January and beyond, including loads of reality fare. And there will be fresh scripted series that were wrapped before the strike began.
Sure, there'll be stuff to watch. But that's cold comfort for fans feeling the premature absence of new episodes of the shows they love best.
END IN SIGHT:
• The last new "Pushing Daisies" airs on ABC Wednesday.
• There's just one more new episode of ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" (yet to be scheduled).
• ABC's "Desperate Housewives" has one new episode, likely airing in January.
A FEW TO GO:
• The "Crime Scene Investigation" trio, "NCIS," "Criminal Minds," "Without a Trace" and "Cold Case" are down to a couple of new episodes apiece on CBS.
• NBC's comedy "30 Rock" has a fresh episode Thursday, with one more after that, as yet without an airdate.
• Just three new episodes of ABC's "Ugly Betty" are left.
• ABC's comedy "Samantha Who?" has four more episodes in the can.
• Fox's "Family Guy" has scheduled a normal mix of new and repeat episodes at least through January. Even better, "The Simpsons" has a full season's worth of episodes in store.
STUCK IN REPEATS:
• NBC dramas "Heroes" and "Life" are kaput.
• NBC's "The Office" is closed for business, as is ABC's "Private Practice."
• "Big Bang Theory" has run dry, along with fellow CBS sitcoms "How I Met Your Mother," "Two And a Half Men" and "Rules of Engagement."
WHO KNOWS WHEN?:
• The planned January return of Fox's "24" has been postponed indefinitely. Since only some of the series' 24 episodes have been shot, Fox didn't want to risk beginning a new season that might be interrupted.
• Fox's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" will have a two-night premiere Jan. 13-14. This new drama, a reinvention of the "Terminator" film franchise, arrives with 13 episodes completed.
• Fox has three new episodes of "House" slotted for early 2008, one of them following the Super Bowl broadcast.
• NBC's "Medium" will return Jan. 7 with nine episodes in the can.
• "The New Adventures of Old Christine" will be back Jan. 28 with at least eight episodes of this CBS sitcom, and the apocalyptic drama "Jericho" returns in February with seven episodes.
• "Cashmere Mafia," ABC's new comedy-drama starring Lucy Liu, will arrive with seven episodes completed.
• NBC's "Lipstick Jungle," with Brooke Shields, premieres Feb. 7.

“American Gladiators” was a true 90’s television phenomenon. Who could forget Ice, Malibu, Laser, Hawk and Nitro? Not NBC, who’s bringing it back bigger, stronger and faster… and with The Hulk at the helm!
“The set is nuts,” Hulk told Access Hollywood. “I’ve been on sets where they spent a little bit of money, but this set – they went crazy!”
“American Gladiators” is the ultimate spectacle of strength, which takes place on a massive 12,000 square foot sound stage.
NBC is gearing up to launch the revival of the classic competition show, in which super strong citizen contenders take on the 12 super human gladiators in Roman-inspired games.
“Things are bigger and faster,” Hulk said of the new version. “Now we’ve got water. I wish it was shark infested. It’s not shark infested.”
Instead of falling on stunt pads during the all mighty joust, the weak are plunged into a pool.
Another classic game from the old version is also returning – The Pyramid!
Contestants will try to claw their way up to the top, but mostly, the Gladiators will be tossing them right back down.

Asked to describe the video, Simpson tells Billboard.com, "One of my favorite artists is Salvador Dali. You'll see a little bit of that surrealism in it. There's a bit of 'Being John Malkovich' in there too. It's a little out there," she says with a laugh.
"Out of My Head (Ay Ya Ya)" goes to iTunes and other leading digital retailers on Tuesday. Like a good percentage of the new album, it was produced by Timbaland, who tapped into Simpson's love of '80s music when crafting the material.
"There's definitely influences here and there from it, but it's definitely not a full-on '80s record," Simpson says. "There's a pop/rock element as well," she notes, pointing to songs like "Never Dream Alone" and the sassy "Rulebreaker." Elsewhere, "Murder" will feature a rap from Gym Class Heroes member Travis McCoy.
"I've never gone into a room and worked with somebody who puts a beat on and you start going," says Simpson, who also worked in the studio with Kenna and the Neptunes' Chad Hugo. "It felt like somewhere to go with the record where I'd never been."
Simpson plans to decide the album title over the holiday break, but is already looking toward her return to the live stage. "I want to do like a smaller club tour first," she says. "Probably around February, we'll be back."

Rent a celebrity for your next birthday party or bar mitzvah. Tara Reid comes cheap these days at $3,500 a gig. So, too, does Nick Lachey whose price tag has dropped to $60,000. Michael Bolton still commands $75,000, and Mariah Carey is as hot as ever at a cool $3 million for a private appearance.
Who's making a guest appearance at your private New Year's Eve party this year? Elton John, Robin Williams or will you settle for Tara Reid?
That all depends on your wallet and the value of your guest's star stock. In the thriving rent-a-celebrity business, the price tag for having a celeb drop by is a telling barometer of who's hot and who's not.

Mariah Carey earns a cool $3 million for a private appearance, up from $1 million in 2006.

Nick Lachey, Vanessa Minnillo Tipped to Wed This Weekend
Friday , December 07, 2007
By Hollie McKay
He may have been a “Newlywed” once before, but it seems Nick Lachey is ready to march down the aisle again … this weekend.
Pop singer Lachey and his MTV star girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo will be married in a secret ceremony at one of the Carlyle Hotels in the Bahamas this weekend, a source told FOXNews.com's Pop Tarts columnist Hollie McKay.
Minnillo's entourage arrived at the dazzling digs Friday afternoon, the source said.
Reps for the comely couple could not be reached.
Lachey, 34, was previously married to Jessica Simpson, and starred with her in the hit MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica."
Earlier this year, Simpson said she was stung when Lachey jumped back into dating after their high-profile breakup.
"Oh, it hurt me," the 27-year-old singer-actress said in an interview in the March issue of Elle magazine. "Two or three weeks later? Yeah, I'd say it kind of hurt me."
Simpson filed for divorce in December 2005 after three years of marriage, and is now reportedly dating Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo.

Were you, like me, a big fan of the movie Now and Then as a kid?
That movie featured Christina Ricci as a young Rosie O'Donnell, Gaby Hoffman as a young Demi Moore, Thora Birch as a young Melanie Griffith, and Ashleigh Aston Moore as a young Rita Wilson.
Christina Ricci's doing Speed Racer, Gaby Hoffman, according to her Wikipedia entry, is currently doing theatre, Thora Birch went on to do Ghost World and some gum commercials, but it seemed that Ashleigh Aston Moore fell off the face of the earth.
It's hard to believe that the chubby girl from Now and Then grew into:

Vanessa Hudgens jet sets out of LAX airport in Los Angeles on Friday. The 18-year-old High School Musical actress toted around her Louis Vuitton Monogram Cuir Embossed Stephen Bag before boarding her flight.
Where’s V headed, you ask? On Sunday, Vanessa will be in Washington DC on Sunday performing at TNT’s annual benefit show, Christmas in Washington. She’s probably flying east as you’re reading this…
The special will be hosted by Dr. Phil and his wife Robin McGraw and will benefit the Children’s National Medical Center. Other artists slated to perform: Ne-Yo, Alan Jackson, Andrea Bocelli, Colbie Caillat, Heather Headley and Katharine McPhee.
Joe Jonas, 18, who recently dated AJ Michalka, 16, revealed that he broke up with her because their long-distance relationship was 'too much to manage' and that they both went their 'separate ways'. Joe said:
"I'm always disappointed when I'm into a girl and she brushes off something that's really important to me. When I'm excited about something, I want to share it with the people I love, and if a girl isn't excited for me, or at least excited that it's making me happy, well, that's a sign that something is wrong."
A long distance relationship is always hard, but I wonder if there was something wrong with AJ. Maybe she couldn't handle the Jonas Brothers recent extreme success? Do you think AJ is pretty enough for Joe?
