Actress Sandra Oh is coming back to Canada next weekend to host the Genie Awards, the annual celebration of the year's top Canadian films, organizers announced Monday evening.
Though perhaps most well-known for her Golden Globe-winning turn as an ambitious young surgeon on hit TV medical drama Grey's Anatomy, Oh has also maintained strong links to the independent and Canadian film communities.
Earlier this year, the Nepean, Ont.-born, Ottawa-raised Oh served as a juror for the dramatic competition grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
Oh is also a former best actress Genie-winner for her roles in Don McKellar's Last Night and Mina Shum's Double Happiness. Her credits range from the Oscar contender Sideways to the HBO comedy Arliss to early work in Canadian productions like CBC's The Diary of Evelyn Lau.
In December, the Toronto branch of the group Women in Film and Television presented Oh with the international achivement honour at its 2007 Crystal Awards. She recently returned to filming Grey's Anatomy after the end of the recent U.S. screenwriters strike — during which she was a prominent face on the picket lines supporting her writer colleagues.
With 12 nominations each, David Cronenberg's Russian mafia thriller Eastern Promises and the Rwandan genocide drama Shake Hands with the Devil are the lead nominees going into the 28th annual Genie Awards.
The ceremony will be held in Toronto on March 3.

Poet and author Charles Bukowski is gone but the bungalow where he penned his first novel still stands, as bedraggled as the writer himself, and city leaders say they will save it as a literary landmark in a city better known for its Hollywood glitz.
The Los Angeles City Council was expected to vote next week to preserve the faded stucco home in the shadow of Hollywood where the hard-living Bukowski lived from 1963 to 1972 and wrote the autobiographical novel "Post Office," among other works.
The city's Cultural Heritage Commission has recommended the nearly 90-year-old property's designation as a historic monument, rescuing it from demolition by developers looking to put up condominiums.
"Hollywood is famous not because everybody has been a saint or a nun," Los Angeles City Councilman Eric Garcetti said. "It's always attracted complicated and important people and Charles Bukowski certainly fits that mold."
Garcetti said the hard-drinking writer, best known for chronicling his own seedy life on the gritty streets of Los Angeles, deserved to be remembered even though he was "not necessarily a guy you'd want to be friends with."
In addition to Bukowski's former home, the property includes several brown Spanish Colonial Revival style "ready to assemble" apartments and bungalows that the city says were built on the lot between 1922 and 1926.

World Premiere of Mariah Carey's Touch My Body Video!!
"We were at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday night where the Night Before Oscar party was happening. So many stars – better attended than the Oscars and I’ll be up for a week straight writing down all my observations. Will get to the breaking information first.
John Krasinski and Rashida Jones – she is gorgeous in person with the sexiest voice ever – left together holding hands, climbed into his black Lexus and drove away. He’s tall, she’s short, and they are still VERY much together. When they were walking out, he had his hand on the back of her neck – you know that sexy part of the back of your neck where it feels good to have your man holding you? Yes… right there. Not that it matters but he has clean fingernails. This is only notable to me because my cousin Cat’s big peeve about Ben Affleck is that he looks like he has dirty fingernails. Since then I’ve always looked at fingernails.
To be honest, John didn’t look great that night. Was wearing a light grey sweater and his hair was “done”. Like gelled and combed. Not sweet. She on the other hand was lovely. Red lipstick, great skin, amazing coat – looked like Stella.
Sorry folks. No real life Jim and Pam."
WHICH seemingly happy couple is hiding a horrible secret? The singer/actress is beaten regularly by her controlling hubby, who demands that everything go his way or not at all.
If you think the teaming of Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher sounds like something out of a reality show, you're not far off. The pair are joining forces to create an unscripted series for ABC.
The as-yet-untitled project will feature contestants competing in a beauty pageant. Naturally there's a twist, but the network has requested that the concept remain under wraps because the show hasn't started production.

Whoopi Goldberg's omission from an Oscar montage – perceived by her and others to be a slight that left the View host in tears – was "an absolute oversight," the award show's producer tells PEOPLE.
"No harm was intended, and I feel very, very badly that she was left out," Gil Cates said Tuesday. "I'm going to call her and tell her that."
Although described as a montage of hosts, the piece shown at Sunday night's telecast on ABC was actually "supposed to be a montage of 80 exciting moments of the Academy Awards" culled from hundreds of hours of footage, says Cates. "Basically, that was not a montage about hosts."
He noted that former host Steve Martin also wasn't in the montage.
Still, Cates said, "It was an absolute oversight" to leave out Goldberg, an Oscar winner and nominee who had hosted telecasts that Cates himself produced.
"I asked her to be on the show. She did it twice," he said. "She is a formidable talent."
The untitled flick "will blow Blow out of the water," says a movie insider who added that Leo "is excited about the opportunity to play the airplane pilot who travels with Mark's character to obtain kilos of cocaine from Pablo Escobar."
This will be the third film that the pair has been in together. Mark, 36, and Leo, 33, starred in 1995's The Basketball Diaries and most recently in 2006's The Departed.
Has anyone seen the documentary? I wonder if it's any good.
Larry Birkhead and Anna Nicole Smith's 1-year-old daughter Dannielynn is "resting comfortably" after undergoing corrective eye surgery, Birkhead tells Entertainment Tonight.
Dannielynn, who was diagnosed with strabismus (commonly known as a lazy eye), "is home from surgery and resting comfortably," Birkhead tells ET. "My thanks go out to Dr. Arthur Rosenbaum and the Jules Stein Eye Institute staff for taking great care of Dannielynn."
Birkhead, 34, previously admitted that it was tough to consider surgery for the child, but told PEOPLE on Sunday: "A lot of parents ... gave me a lot of support and a lot of encouraging words and gave me the strength. I'm a baby when it comes to needles myself, and I definitely don't want to hand my child over to some surgeons. So, it's a little nerve-racking but she's in the best doctors' hands."
Singer will mentor kids in plea deal
Bobby Brown is set to do an entire year of community service in Brockton, MA.
The Boston native was arrested for possession of cocaine in December, and asked the police not to bring charges against him.
He got his wish and no criminal charges will issue, as Brown opted to carry out community service by mentoring children and young adults in the underprivileged city.
Brown’s attorney Stephanie Soriano told the Boston Herald that the 39-year-old singer will begin community service within a couple of months
Two Star Trek stars have been spotted sporting new looks for their for roles in the 23rd century. The most stark of these is Eric Bana, who plays the villain Nero. Bana showed up for the The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday with a shaved head. In addition, Simon Pegg (the new Scotty) was scene on British TV last week without his usual blond look.
Simon Pegg’s usual look is blond, but in the picture below from his recent appearance on the Encore post-show at this year’s Brit Awards you can see that he gets closer to the original Scotty’s look with a darker style (but not black as it was originally with Doohan). And although he didn’t shave his head, Pegg did shave his beard. Although there is some stubble below, TrekMovie.com has been told that his Scotty is clean shaven.

Cheryl Cole has apparently hired a love counsellor to save her marriage to Ashley.
The Girls Aloud star speaks twice a day to the therapist who, according to the Daily Star, has told the singer she must get tough with the Chelsea player over allegations he cheated on her, or he'll think he can "get away with it".
But friends of Ashley, 27, reportedly claim he is already ridiculing the therapy as "mumbo jumbo".
It seems Cheryl, 24, has been told she and Ashley must meet with the counsellor for both joint sessions and individual therapy, and has been urged to show Ashley his bad behaviour will not be tolerated.
A source told the newspaper: "Cheryl's self-esteem was at rock bottom after the allegations emerged.
"But she's learned if she brushes it under the carpet it will be a sign to Ashley that it's okay. Cheryl has to make it 100 per cent clear it will never be tolerated again and that there is no quick fix plan like having a baby.
"Ashley will have to agree to counselling on his own and as a couple. He must make a commitment and learn to be accountable.
"Until the counsellor started helping her Cheryl felt low and discarded."
In order to save their marriage Ashley will reportedly have to sign a charter saying he will make one romantic gesture a week, stop drinking with his friends and start spending more time with Cheryl.
Cheryl Cole demands she and Ashley move house for fresh start
Cheryl Cole has demanded that she and cheating husband Ashley move home, telling him: "We need a fresh start."
The heartbroken Girls Aloud star - who took the Chelsea and England love-rat back after he slept with hairdresser Aimee Walton, 22 - says their sixbedroom mansion in Oxshott, Surrey, holds too many painful memories.
A source close to the couple said: "Cheryl is convinced they both need a complete change of scenery as they try and work things out between them.
"She's adamant that moving away from their home, where she was first told the news of his infidelity, would go a long way in putting the past behind them." Cheryl's ultimatum came during the pair's crisis meeting last Thursday when Ashley, 27, begged Cheryl, 24, to forgive him.
The source added: "Cheryl also explained that she knows a lot of people in the village and would find it difficult to walk around with her head held high after what's happened between them."
But Ashley isn't too happy about leaving the multi-million pound gated home with its own cinema - said to be one of the best properties in the area.
The source added: "Ashley loves the house - a footballer's pad is like a trophy in itself.
"Ash loves Cheryl and desperately wants to win her approval again. But it will be a struggle giving up the house of their dreams."
Cheryl abandoned the home a month ago and has been back only once.
Will Smith has taken the first steps to fulfilling his dream of becoming U.S. President.
The Hollywood star - who recently revealed he would love to become America's first black president - has been approached by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama to play him in a film of his life.
Obama told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Will and I have talked about the idea of him playing me because he has the same ears as me! He would be perfect."
Last year, Democrat supporter Smith revealed his political aspirations, saying: "I always wanted to be the first black president but Barack Obama stole my idea. That's OK with me. Barack can go first and then I'll take my turn."
Smith explained he would immediately address some fundamental issues if he were in office.
He added: "Once I'm in, I'll start changing a few things that urgently need changing."
"The basis of human sanity is physical survival. So I'd start with universal health care and shelter."
Smith is no stranger to playing real-life icons on screen.
In 2002 he was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his role as boxing legend Muhammad Ali in 'Ali'.
They have like the exact same ears. It's freakish really. Also, ever since Will Smith became BFF with Tom Cruise I have no use for him.
Melanie Brown is totally over Eddie Murphy. Scary Spice tells Stella magazine that she's "over any kind of relationship" and that her new man is going to be father to her daughter with Murphy.
"He is going to be her dad - her father-figure," the 32-year-old singer says of her husband Stephen Belafonte, who she married last June.
Brown adds that her film producer husband makes her feel like a woman, something she did not experience with her relationships.
"He is a man [and] I don't think I've had a man before. Normally I'm the man," she says. "He makes me feel like a woman, a lady."
And despite rumors about the Spice Girls' falling out, Brown insists that the group is "rock-solid."
"What we've been together - I'd forgotten how intense and powerful it was."
Didn't they date for like 2 months before they got married? I don't see the marriage lasting, but who knows. She wants to have kids with him. Three kids, three different dads. Classy.
Edited to add more on what I really think..I think that women should be more responsible about who they're having kids with. Yes, I understand, it happens. I understand that there are some of you whose mothers have 14 different kids by 8 different dads and everything is peachy...but that isn't the case most of the time. I'm not saying that if you're in a marriage for 15 years that results in kids then you should never get remarried and have more kids. But if you just get knocked up when you've been seeing a guy for 6 months and then that doesn't work out and the next time you date someone you're knocked up again..I think there's a problem. Pregnancy can be prevented. And I don't think it's right for a woman to have 4 kids by 4 different dads, all the kids having different last names, never spending a weekend together because they don't have the same dad. Not sharing a paternal family..etc. I think it's just confusing to children and irresponsible of women.
I'm sure all of your mother's are the saints you're making them out to be. I'm sure they all sacrificed so that each kid felt amazingly united and whole despite the fact that there are so many baby daddy's. But statistically it's not true.
Prince insisted all his guests wore purple to his post-Oscars party on Sunday.
The 'Purple Rain' singer - who held the $400,000 bash at his $20 million Los Angeles mansion - told stars including George Clooney, Johnny Depp and James McAvoy they must don the color in order to enjoy purple-colored snacks and Purple Rain cocktails.
A source said: "Purple has always been Prince's favorite color. He decided the guests must wear something purple. All the drinks and food were purple and the house was given a purple makeover."
Prince's sensuous party was in sharp contrast to Madonna's post-awards bash. Her guests, who included Jack Nicholson and John Travolta, were given a wheat and diary-free macrobiotic dinner.
The health-conscious singer had flown catering staff from London to prepare the main meal of steamed sea bass.
After eating, Madonna took to the dance floor, and urged her guests to follow her example.
The mother-of-two partied the night away until 4am, but just three hours later she had to turn up for jury duty at the Beverly Hills courthouse. Although she didn't get picked for any of yesterday's cases, she was overheard saying she only "got three hours sleep last night."
A source added: "She was exhausted."
I want to know what everyone who came wore. Probably just like a purple tie or something. But in my head Jack Nicholson is dressed like The Joker.
Outspoken Simon Cowell holds nothing back in talking about just about anything. The 'American Idol' host shares who he thinks will win the popular talent show, the presidential race, and of course, what he thinks of Britney Spears.
In an interview with 'Extra,' the music mogul says of all the contestants in 'Idol,' he thinks 17-year-old David Archuleta has the biggest chance of winning.
"He's cute. He's likeable. He has a big voice. He's the one to beat."
And although he is British, Cowell did not have reservations on uttering his opinions regarding the U.S. presidential race.
"I think he is terrific," he says referring to presidential candidate Barack Obama. "He's like a pop star. Anyone who can draw 25,000 people to hear a speech about politics is a star."
And as for Britney? Cowell says that he would decline to help the 'Toxic' singer if he was asked to manager her career.
"I couldn't be bothered to be honest. It's time for somebody new. It's just too complicated."
David and Danny are my bbs!
Jennifer Aniston has been celibate for six months.
The former 'Friends' star - who is currently believed to be dating her 'Traveling' co-star Aaron Eckhart - is reportedly abstaining from sex until she finds "true love".
A source told Britain's Closer magazine: "Jen's made it clear to men who want to date her she's not interested in one-night stands or flings."
"She's looking for true love and she's saving herself. She told me, 'I'm looking for the person who will love me for who I am, not what I am. I am not interested in sex for the sake of it'."
Jennifer's five-year marriage to Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt ended in divorce in 2005. She has since enjoyed relationships with 'Fred Claus' star Vince Vaughn and British model Paul Sculfor, and has also been romantically linked to 'Sex and the City' star Jason Lewis.
Jennifer has also allegedly had her eggs frozen as she seeks Mr. Right.
A source close to the 39-year-old actress told America's Star magazine: "Having the eggs frozen was a really smart move for Jennifer, because it buys her a few years to figure things out before she rushes into having children."
"She's giving herself a big break from the intense pressure to find her Mr. Right and start a family. She's in a good place now."
Unless she's playing Rachel Green I just really dislike her and I'm not really sure why. Someone explain please.
Kate Hudson loves walking round her house naked.
The 28-year-old actress says her mother Goldie Hawn and stepfather Kurt Russell brought her up to feel comfortable in her own skin and she finds shedding her clothes liberating.
She said: "My mother and father never gave a big deal about nudity in our house."
"I often walk around naked or just wearing panties."
The 'Almost Famous' star - who has a four-year-old son Ryder with her rocker ex-husband Chris Robinson - also insists she has no qualms about stripping on screen.
She added to Fabric magazine: "Actors are all supposed to be emotionally naked anyway."
Kate is not the only star to enjoy baring all when at home.
Last year, Christina Aguilera revealed she and her husband Jordan Bratman spice up their marriage by getting naked every Sunday.
The 27-year-old singer confessed: "We have to be the coziest couple around. We have something called naked Sundays. We just do everything in the house naked. It's important to keep the marriage alive, to spice it up a little."
Katherine Heigl plans to try for a baby in December.
The '27 Dresses' actress is eager to get pregnant in the next few months but her rocker husband Josh Kelley wants to wait until next year, so the pair have decided to compromise.
She said: "I say I want to start in July. He's saying the following July. So, we are thinking of a compromise - sometime in December."
Katherine, who looked stunning in a red gown at the Oscars on Sunday, confessed she was starstruck to be in the company of such A-listers at the prestigious ceremony.
She explained: "It was surreal. I felt very much out of my league. I was sitting next to Renee Zellweger and behind Cate Blanchett and Jack Nicholson. I wanted to take pictures!"
The 29-year-old blonde beauty also revealed Jack made her night by calling her "sugar".
She added to 'Access Hollywood': "He called me sugar a couple of times. I was so excited about it. I'm going to tell everyone."
I know that nearly everyone here hates her for some reason but I love her. I've loved her ever since my 13 year old self saw My Father the Hero. I thought she was like the most beautiful girl ever. When she wakes up with that gorgeous perfect hair...ugg.
So wait..you guys hate her because of a character she plays? I don't watch Grey's Anatomy so I don't know what the issue is. But I think it's pretty silly to dislike someone because of a character that they play on a television show.
Recently tied up with the duties associated with single motherhood, Bridget Moynahan was able to sneak out for awhile on Tuesday to earn a little cash for her family-of-two.
Moynahan looked radiant, posing in evening/bath wear on the beach as the photographers worked to make sure that everything turned out just right.
Meanwhile, not too long ago, Bridget did a YouTube interview with actor-comedian pal Sam Harris, who was in the room with her when she gave birth to little John Edward Thomas Moynahan in August.
When Harris asked “What was the most difficult thing about the pregnancy?”, Bridget burst into laughter and replied, “What was the most difficult thing about the pregnancy? You know what was the most difficult thing about the pregnancy!”
Harris told in the video clip that Bridget handled the mess over being dumped for Gisele Bunchen while pregnant with “(aplomb and dignity”.
“She has been a real trooper through all of this,” he said,“Her primary concern all the time is that baby. She’s a mother bear. She loves that baby and will do anything to make sure that things are right for him. I admire her so much.”
Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev Iceland Movie In Works
Director Sir Ridley Scott is making a new movie about late U.S. president Ronald Reagan's dealings with former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
The as-yet-untitled film will reportedly focus on the pair's famous 1986 summit conference that took place in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Scott tells the U.S. trade journal the Hollywood Reporter, "I want to show who they were and why they did what they did.
"Their actions helped shape history, paving the way for the end of the Cold War."
And although the American Gangster director has yet to begin casting, he insists "physical resemblance is secondary".
He adds, "It's less about visible appearance, more about the acting. (But) you have to acknowledge the physicality. Reagan was tall and elegant while Gorbachev was stocky, like a front row rugby player. In some ways, Gorbachev is easier to cast. Reagan is more colourful."
Ronald Reagan, the 40th American president, died in 2004 following a decade-long battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden has been telling friends Paris Hilton is "the one".
The pair - who were first seen together in Los Angeles last week - looked smitten as they held hands while shopping in West Hollywood. Paris has even been seen wearing a silver band from top jewelers Tiffany and Co. on her ring finger, according to gossip website pagesix.com.
A source close to Benji said: "He is really happy with Paris and has already been telling all his friends she is the one. He says he can really see himself ending up with her for good."
Hotel heiress Paris met Benji through her close friend Nicole Richie, who is engaged to Benji's brother Joel Madden.
Meanwhile, 27-year-old Paris is set to star in a new reality TV show documenting her search for a "new best friend".
A show insider told Us Weekly magazine: "Paris is tired of the haters and she's looking for someone new. She's looking for someone new and cool who she can trust."
The project is expected to be picked up by either music channel MTV or VH1, and will start filming later this year.
David Bowie thinks Scarlett Johansson's voice is "mystical".
The legendary singer provides backing vocals on two tracks for Scarlett's upcoming album of Tom Waits covers, 'Anywhere I Lay My Head', and says the actress stunned him with her talent.
In a posting on his official website, he wrote: "The songs are great, really good Tom Waits stuff, and Scarlett's performances are mystical and cool."
"She creates a mood that could have been summoned by someone like the novelists Margery Latimer or Jeanette Winterson."
David also insists his contribution to the record isn't as big as the hype.
He added: "I've seen the press on the album and I suppose the record company wanted to spin my involvement a little more than it actually warrants."
"All I really contribute are these oo's and ah's on a couple of tracks. David Sitek, the producer, originally asked me to do three songs, but for one of them, 'I Don't Wanna Grow Up', I didn't feel I could contribute much to it, so I left it alone."
The veteran star isn't the only one to be impressed with Scarlett's vocal styling. The actress recently revealed Tom Waits himself had been complimentary about her voice.
She said: "Tom Waits' melodies are so beautiful and his voice is so distinct. I sent him some of my early recordings, and he said, 'Go ahead.' I've heard he's very pleased."
'Anywhere I Lay My Head', which features 10 covers and one original song, 'Song for Jo', is due for worldwide release in May.

The 21-year-old twins — who topped last year’s Forbes Top Earning Stars Under 21 list with an estimated fortune of $40 million each — are publishing a coffee table book, Influence, through Penguin Young Readers Group.
It will feature “the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know — the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation,” Ashley said in a statement.
Among them: shoe guru Christian Louboutin, actress Lauren Hutton, photographer Terry Richardson and writer Bob Colacello.
“Ashley and I interviewed the people who have inspired us, with the hope that they will inspire and teach others,” Mary-Kate said.
The book — due this fall — will also feature exclusive photos of the twins and never-before-seen interviews with the two.
And I'm sure they're doing all the gritty work.
CCH Pounder has one of the choicest roles of any actress on television in that of Capt. Claudette Wyms on the FX Network’s police drama “The Shield.” The show with an uncommonly loyal following is set to return sometime this summer for its seventh and final season.
“It’s one of those sleeper series that once people see it they go, Oh my …’ And they really become sort of addicted to it,” she said at the recent NAACP Image Awards. “That’s what I think is so fabulous about this particular show.”
The final episodes have already been shot, but the writers’ strike had prevented them from being edited until now. The actress is eager for fans old and new to see what happens to Wyms, who was promoted to captain in Season 6, and the rest of the show’s characters.
“It’s definitely the most amazing season out of the seven,” she said. “I recommend to anybody if they haven’t seen it before to go back and see 1-6. It’s pretty amazing.”
Her character will have a host of issues to deal with, including menopause.
“I think what’s really wonderful about it is that she’s not just a powerful female, she’s a powerful female with incredible flaws,” Pounder, 55, said. “And with age coming up and retirement coming up, and she is experiencing ... change.”
Life after “The Shield” has already began. She spent seven months working on James Cameron’s new film, “Avatar,” which will be out in 2009, and just last week she wrapped work on the feature film “Orphan.”

When will "The Shield" return? Not until fall
I have bad news for fans of "The Shield." You've been waiting for the Michael Chiklis drama. You're going to have to wait longer.
It probably won't return until September, an FX spokesman told me.
The cable channel will present "Dirt" and "The Riches" in the spring. "Rescue Me" and "Damages" won't be back until next year, because of the writers' strike. So FX wanted to save something for fall, and that means the final 13 episodes of the cop drama will play there.
Another consideration: FX wanted to start "The Shield" after the Summer Olympics from China.
So there you have it. We could have used "The Shield" right now, don't you think?

SHE is ecstatic now, but there was a time during the second season of Desperate Housewives that star Marcia Cross was wallowing in pessimism.Though the 43-year-old psychology graduate felt at the peak of her professional powers playing Wisteria Lane's uptight Bree Van De Kamp, Cross's life away from the high-gloss soap was less sanguine.
Cross, who in 1993 lost her partner, actor Richard Jordan, to a brain tumour, had long since withdrawn from dating.
She had convinced herself she would never marry and had almost given up on her dream of having children.
Then she met stockbroker Tom Mahoney, who had a profoundly positive impact on Cross's psyche.
Odd as it seems, Cross was falling in love with Mahoney at the same time as newspapers started publishing rumours she was gay.
Troubled as she was by the scuttlebutt, Cross felt it would be undignified to make a public statement clarifying her sexuality.
‘‘I was not going to (name Mahoney) as proof of my sexuality,'' she says.
‘‘I was annoyed. I thought, ‘That is nobody's business'.''
PITTSBURGH -- Myron Cope, the longtime Steelers radio announcer, is dead at 79 after a long battle with various health problems.
Joe Gordon, Cope's longtime friend and a former team executive, said the announcer died Wednesday morning at a nursing home in Mount Lebanon.
"It's always a sad day when a member of the Steeler family is gone, and he was such an important member," said Bill Hillgrove, Cope's radio partner, upon hearing the news of his death. "I'm sure people feel like flying flags at half-staff. He was a source of so much fun and so many good times, and of course, he was a personal friend of mine. I feel a loss, but I also want to smile."
A Pittsburgh native born Myron Sydney Kopelman, Cope did Steelers games on radio for 35 years and is the only football commentator in the National Radio Hall of Fame.
His most memorable catchphrase -- "yoi" (and often "double yoi") -- meant that an important play had occurred. Other "Copeisms" that listeners might hear during a game included "Mmm-Hah!" and "Okel Dokel," which meant "okey dokey."
And of course, Cope is credited with inventing the now-famous "Terrible Towel" -- the yellow rags that fans waved for many years during games at Three Rivers Stadium, and now at Heinz Field.

A pop star spent a night behind bars last week, courtesy of the taxpayers of Kimble County.
Sheriff’s Deputy Billy Hull stopped Aaron Carter, 20, on Interstate 10 about noon on Thursday, February 21. Carter was driving a gold, 2009 Cadillac Escalade, carrying two pit bulls as passengers, when he was stopped and ticketed for speeding.
When Hull discovered marijuana in Carter’s vehicle, he arrested and jailed the young man, charging him with possession of marijuana, less than two ounces. Carter was magistrated at 9 the next morning by County Judge Delbert Roberts, where he entered no plea to the Class B misdemeanor and was released on a $2,000 bond. He was whisked away from the county jail by Deputy Hull to retrieve his dogs at a prearranged meeting behind the City Offices. Animal Control officer Carolyn Moore delivered Carter’s dogs to him there.
Carter was spotted later at CarQuest purchasing a new battery for his Escalade and signing autographs for a few fans.
According to Kimble County Sheriff Mike Chapman, Carter had been pulled over for speeding on the Interstate through Kimble County, about three months ago .
During his stay in Junction, city and county law officers worked together to make sure Carter was escorted around town with as little fanfare as possible. Once outside the county jail, two individuals who were not with Carter when he was stopped, a young male friend of Carter’s and a woman identified as Carter’s publicist, were aggressive in attempting to screen Carter from being photographed.
A local man, Ysidro Esquivel, was successful in taking some pictures of Carter during the dog delivery behind the City Offices. Those can be viewed at TMZ.com. The sale price for the pictures was not available.
Various reports were circulating that Carter was bound for a home in Austin or to visit his father in Atlanta. According to published reports, a statement released by the singer’s manager to Entertainment Tonight, said: “On his way to Florida bringing his two dogs to live on a large ranch, Aaron Carter was detained in Texas by a trooper for exceeding the speed limit by 5 mph. A search revealed a small amount of marijuana, a misdemeanor in this state. He sincerely regrets any embarrassment this caused to his family, friends and fans.”
Carter appeared on a reality show called “House of Carters” with his more famous brother Nick, a member of the BackStreet Boys.

February 27, 2008 -- RAPPER Nas was shocked when Maxim gave his new album, "N - - - - r," a 21/2-star review - because it isn't even finished yet. "I'm finishing the album now, and it will be out April 22," Nas told Page Six. Maxim has since apologized for the premature review, but Nas doesn't care. "I'd prefer [a review from] Playboy," the rapper said. "That kind of stuff doesn't reach my radar or effect anybody around me. I don't know what a music rating from Maxim is . . . I don't know what it even means really." Maxim also reviewed the Black Crowes' album, "War Paint," without listening to it in its entirety.
To publicize the launch of the new Davidoff Adventure Fragrance, Ewan McGregor was in London at the Langham Hotel where he gave exclusive interviews.
Launched last week in the UK, McGregor has signed to do worldwide television and print ads for the Davidoff Adventure fragrance. His trips "Long Way Down" and "Long Way Round" embody the spirit of the new fragrance.
"Ewan McGregor is a natural choice to represent Davidoff's new male fragrance. Not only is he one of the most talented actors of his generation, but he also has a charisma and an authenticity that will be very important for the new Davidoff Adventure fragrance," said Françoise Mariez, SVP International European Marketing Licenses, Coty Prestige.
Scottish-born Ewan McGregor first came to world attention as Renton in the critically acclaimed "Trainspotting," followed by playing a Jedi Master in "Star Wars" and singing alongside Nicole Kidman in "Moulin Rouge." He has starred in films such as "The Island", "Big Fish", and his latest release is the award winning Woody Allen's "Cassandra's Dream." McGregor also took time out between his film projects to fulfill a dream - a 20,000-mile motorcycle trip across the world for the documentaries "Long Way Round" and "Long Way Down", revealing his adventurous real-life personality.
The scent and style of the new Davidoff Adventure fragrance mark the beginning of a new era for the Davidoff fragrance portfolio.

Milo Ventimiglia on Heroes
February 27, 2008
While "Heroes" fans will have to wait until the fall when the show will return with new episodes, ComingSoon.net talked to Milo Ventimiglia Monday on the set of his new movie, Armored, and he told us a little about his "Heroes" character, Peter Petrelli. Armored, co-starring Columbus Short, Matt Dillon, Laurence Fishburne, Jean Reno and Skeet Ulrich, is currently being shot in Culver City on the Sony Pictures lot. The 30-year-old star admitted he knows what's in store for him on the NBC series, but he can't give up many details. Okay, actually he can't spill any information, but we tried anyway.

Gwyneth Paltrow has filmed a public service announcement for UNICEF to help raise money to prevent children being born with the HIV virus.
Paltrow's video clip was launched online Wednesday.
The actress agreed to take part in the PSA after being approached by pal Jemima Khan – ex-girlfriend of Hugh Grant – who is urging world leaders to honor their 2007 pledge for AIDS funding that would allow all pregnant women with HIV to receive treatment and care to ensure that their babies are born free from the virus.
"I asked Gwyneth if she would agree to do the voiceover for the film as she is a mother with a global profile who I know is a supporter of UNICEF," Khan tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Paltrow, 35, narrates the four-minute dramatization of a poem by Simon Armitage that deals with the unwanted "gift" of mothers passing on the virus to their unborn children.
"According to UNICEF, a baby is born with HIV almost every minute of every day somewhere in the world. The virus is passed from mother to child during the birth or pregnancy," said Paltrow in a statement released during the film launch. "I have just found out that this can be prevented for less than $2 yet very few women in the poorer countries of the world can get the medicine they need to ensure their baby is born free from HIV. I hope that this new short film will raise awareness and funds about this issue and UNICEF will be able to reach every woman with the vital care and medicines they need."
Six ways ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ star makes herself a cut above the rest
By Alonso DuraldeFilm critic
Natalie Portman may lose her noggin in “The Other Boleyn Girl,” but in real life the 26-year-old has a very good head on her shoulders. In fact, Portman’s doing such a bang-up job of handling international celebrity that it makes her underwear-eschewing, publicly-melting-down peers look even more ridiculous when they try to blame their foibles on the media or the paparazzi.
In an age of starlets gone wild — and the pursuit of same by the insatiable scandal-sheet press corps — Portman has risen to the top of her profession with smarts and class. Even if all of her film choices weren’t the greatest — anybody remember “Where the Heart Is”? — she’s hit upon a winning formula for playing the fame game, and her peers would do well to follow her lead.
James Marsden does the ol' switcheroo again after sinking his teeth in the comedy and rom com genres playing Corny Collins in Hairspray, cutie-pie Prince Edward in Enchanted, and that cranky guy in 27 Dresses. This time he is doing a thriller called The Box also starring Cameron Diaz, and directed by Richard Kelly.
The Box is based on a short story called Button, Button and was a Twilight Zone episode. It is about a couple (Marsden and Diaz) who are given a box that if you press the button inside it you will get a million dollars. The only thing is that someone you don't know will die.
( Collapse )
In the article the three stars were asked if they would press the button:
Frank Langella: "I wouldn't push it for a very good reason. Because I've lived 40 years longer than the people who are being asked to push it, and I know what consequence means. People that age don't always. That is one of the great lessons of the film."
Cameron Diaz: "I know I wouldn't do that. But how often do we push a button every day? It's meant to be a metaphor. We do it all day long and we're not even aware of it. There is a cause and an effect. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Honking your horn. Showing up late. The ultimate big red button is, are you aware of your actions?"
James Marsden: "No, but that's me. We were sitting and talking in a makeup trailer, and one person said, 'I'd probably do it.' I said, 'I would never do it.' He said, 'Yeah, but you're you.' A successful actor making lots of money is different from working at Boston Market. Now if it were $5 million, I might balk for a second. But I would like to think otherwise."
I think there were some people on here who were extras in this? If so, share your stories?

" Troubled rocker Pete Doherty pulled out of yesterday's NME awards at the last minute because he wasn't feeling very well.
The Babyshambles frontman, who split from Kate Moss earlier this week, got his mum Jacqueline to ring up organisers and make his excuses just hours before he was due at the Hammersmith Palais bash.
The self-confessed heroin and crack user, on bail following allegations of robbery and blackmail offences, was going to bring a minder and stay in an isolated room, before making a quick exit after their performance.
But show sources say the real reason Pete pulled out was because he didn't want to be kicked out of his central London rehab clinic for breaking his 10pm curfew.

Sore loser much? Only a handful of weeks have passed since she was given the ceremonial "auf Wiedersehen" from Project Runway’s Heidi Klum, but season four fan favorite Sweet P., 46, has pulled a Jay McCarroll and dissed the gown the Runway star wore to this year’s Academy Awards.
In a post-Oscar fashion recap blog posted on MTV.com, Sweet P. sounded off on Klum’s crimson Galliano creation while recapping the night’s red carpet looks.
“Of course, [Klum] is stunning, but I do not like the big collar thing,” Sweet P. writes. “It looks as if Galliano was inspired by Christian & Chris' avant-garde look. A bit too Cruella de Ville!”
Britney Spears's mom, Lynne, has been praising her ex-husband, Jamie, who has taken control of their troubled daughter's affairs.
"Jamie had to change his whole routine. Lynne sings his praises. He has been such a rock. He has stepped up to the plate," a family friend tells PEOPLE.
"He's gathered a team of reputable people who are around [Britney] now. She's not well, but for the first time in a long time she has people around her who really care about her."
As for how Lynne is coping with having her daughter in and out of the hospital, the friend says, "She's up and down. It's a roller coaster ride as a mother."
Plus, Lynne also wants to spend time with her pregnant 16-year-old daughter, Jamie Lynn, who lives in Kentwood, La., the source says. "She has to spend time between L.A. and Kentwood. As a mother she feels needed in both places. She's doing whatever she can to help both girls. She's got that maternal instinct, and it's in high gear."
One positive step for the family has been Britney's recent visits with her sons, Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1.
"Lynne talked to Jamie, and he said it was a good visit," says the source. "[Britney] slipped into that motherly mode. They picked up right where they left off. She still has a long way to go [to get better], but that's what we hope and pray for ... Lynne and Jamie want their child to be whole again."

Her new daughter, Harlow Winter Kate, in her arms and her boyfriend, Joel Madden, by her side, Nicole Richie tells PEOPLE for its new cover story on newsstands Friday that when it comes to the changes she's experienced in the six weeks since the baby's arrival, "It's almost like I don't even remember what life was like before her. She gives life a whole new meaning and a whole new purpose."
As for breastfeeding, "There's just so much I can't eat because she's sensitive," says the new mom, 26. "I eat really bland [food] ? chicken noodle soup, vegetables, fish. I had to cut out milk, no tomatoes, no lettuce. You think you have to cut everything out when you're pregnant, but you really have to cut everything out when you're breastfeeding."
And while Richie says, "I don't know" how long she was in labor, "because I don't know what time I actually went into labor, but I pushed for 10 minutes," Madden, 28, said of his daughter: "She came out and she was crying. The doctor goes, 'Well, it looks like you got a little girl!' "

Angelina Jolie is planning to have her baby in France to honor her mother reports The Sun. It's also being reported that she's not having twins, but only having one girl. A source said, “Angelina has been told she is expecting a girl. She’s thrilled.”
Not having twins? That gives all the Brangaloonies plenty of time to return the second set of baby gifts they bought. It also gives them time to take down their second and matching baby shrine.
I know she's still a few months away, but it's never too soon to think of baby names. If she wants to honor her French roots, I'm thinking Baguette, Jean Nate or Penelope (after Pepe LaPew's love interest).

Superstar singer Chris Brown performs in front of thousands of screaming fans without even breaking a sweat, but put the 18-year-old in front of girlfriend Rihanna’s relatives for a first-time meeting and he gets stage fright.
Rihanna, 19(20), took Chris home to Barbados last week to meet her family, including her two younger, protective brothers, and before he left, the R&B star told a pal he was worried what everyone would think of him.
“Rihanna is very close to her family,” the pal tells OK!. “But she knew they loved Chris as much as she does.”
That didn’t stop one of her brothers from giving the “Kiss Kiss” singer a hard time. “He told Chris that PDA was tacky and said he may be a little too short for his sister!” Still, the pal adds, “Chris loved seeing all the pictures in Rihanna’s family home of her winning Miss Combermere, [a local beauty pageant she won at 16], lounging on the beach and singing in local clubs. He cares about Rihanna. Things have started really heating up from friends to something more.”

Colin Farrell says he's thankful for the early diagnosis of his 4-year-old son's neuro-genetic disorder and for the vast joy his "little fella" experiences.
"He's nothing but a gift," Farrell, 31, said about son James on the Irish interview show Tubridy Tonight. With paternal pride he said: "As far as I'm concerned he's exactly the way he should be."
Though he was on TV to promote his latest movie, In Bruges, Farrell addressed the topic of James, whose Angelman Syndrome was revealed publicly last year.
"Angelman's is a neuro-genetic disorder," he explained. "The 15th chromosome is dormant. It affects their fine motor skills. They say that one in 30,000 children is affected by it."
According to his father, before James had celebrated his first birthday, he was showing signs of illness, which led to an early diagnosis for the boy.

Pop star Michael Jackson will avoid foreclosure on his Neverland Ranch property with a new loan, a Jackson insider told CNN Wednesday.
Michael Jackson owes millions of dollars on his sprawling property in the Santa Ynez Valley in California.
But the Jackson source said that won't happen.
"Michael Jackson's ranch is not going to be auctioned off at the courthouse," the Jackson insider said. "The financing is all being worked out."
"There are plenty of lenders willing to work with him. The real estate market is very bad right now and Jackson is being affected just like many other Americans," the source said.
The Santa Barbara County Recorder's Web site lists a "notice of trustees sale" by Jackson and his property lenders, Financial Title Company, filed Monday.
In California, title companies typically represent lenders in foreclosure cases.
A notice of trustees sale cannot be posted earlier than 90 days after a notice of default is filed. That notice is not filed unless a loan is in substantial default, sometimes six months or more past due.
A real estate source inside Santa Barbara County said the trustees filing is only the first step in a long process that could drag on for months.
The real estate source said other options are available to Jackson, including selling the ranch directly to another party or making a payment on his $24.5 million Neverland debt that would satisfy the trustee.
The recorder's Web site also reveals there was a release of lien on Jackson on February 4, showing he paid off all or part of delinquent taxes to the state of California.
"It seems unlikely that someone would pay off back taxes, only to let the ranch go up for auction a few weeks later," said the real estate source.
Jackson has not lived at Neverland since June 2005, after a Santa Barbara County jury found him not guilty of child molestation charges.
Hulk Hogan who is divorcing Linda Bollea after nearly twenty-five years of marriage, cheated on his wife with a female friend of his teen daughter Brooke, according to a tabloid report.
Thirty-three year old Christiane Plante, who worked with nineteen year old Brooke on her 2006 LP, has confessed to her affair with the fifty-four year old dad of her friend in a snitching report with The National Enquirer.
Christine claims the affair took place while the family were shooting reality show Hogan Knows Best in 2007:
"My relationship with Terry began at a time when Terry and Linda privately knew their marriage was ending. She had left him already, although no official papers had been filed. Terry is a good man, good father and a good friend, and he and I grew close at a time when he was going through a very difficult period. It seemed right then, but I know it was wrong. Having felt the guilt and pain build up, I gave a note to Brooke apologizing for my actions. I will never be able to fully forgive myself for this. I have lost an amazing friend."

Scarlett Johansson's privacy about her love life may give fans and the media headaches, but it only impresses another Hollywood starlet.

THE "Big Brother" contestant who stirred up a controversy when he called autistic children "retards," has been fired from his job.
But Adam Jasinski, who worked for the United Autism Foundation, doesn't know he's been canned.
He is sequestered in the "Big Brother" house in LA, cut off from contact with the outside world, in keeping with the show's rules.
The foundation announced his firing on its Web site yesterday.
At least one advertiser pulled out of the show following the public outcry over the crude remark and several autism groups even called for CBS to cancel the reality series because producers chose to air the remark in an edited version of the program.
Jasinski was heard on the program saying that he could call children with autism whatever he liked because he worked with them.
"Mr. Jasinski will no longer work for or represent the United Autism Foundation since he caused tremendous damage to UNIAF," the announcement read.
For the last few months, reports Erin Carlson of the Associated Press, Oscar-winning Juno scribe Diablo Cody has been somewhat of an anomaly in Hollywood: The Celebrity Writer. "Not even wordsmith heavies Paul Haggis, Wes Anderson or Charlie Kaufman have stood in a spotlight so bright," writes Carlson. "But then, none of them had the allure of a pole-dancing past, punkish attitude or surprising smash-hit, Oscar-worthy pregnancy comedy." Of course, as most celebs know, there's a terrible downside to fame: The Haters. And one can't help thinking it's a Crime Against Womanity. Would the Coen brothers ever be so aggressively mocked in parody videos? Would anyone have called Waldo Salt a whore? Blame the shoes.
Every year, Stuart Weitzman has a woman wear a million dollar pair of heels on the Oscars' red carpet. If you're a Hollywood enthusiast, or insider, you know this; Cody, apparently, didn't. So she blogged about it: "I must have somehow missed the part where my shoes cost a MILLION FUCKING DOLLARS and my 'choice' of footwear would be publicized nationwide... This looks really attention-whorey, and for once, I didn't do it on purpose." Stuart Weitzman responded, noting that Cody selected the shoes herself (which she doesn't deny) and stated: "I offered her the opportunity initially because I so enjoyed her film, and I'm very happy for her success." But the incident -- and Cody's newfound place in the spotlight --rubs some people the wrong way. Comments on a Stuart Weitzman-related post over at Oh No They Didn't range from mean-spirited to insulting to downright misogynistic. "It seems as if everyone involved with Juno drank some kool aid that turned them into self-important bitches this awards season," says Disco_Balla. "Uh, you're a stripper/screenwriter. Whoring out should not be a problem for you," writes Gobbledoo. Commenter Idiophone says, "That bitch shouldn't even be invited." "Yeah shes a cunt," chimes in Superhyphy. A reader named Helen who brought this post to our attention via email asks:
"What is it about unconventional women that make people (especially other women) hate on them so viciously for any perceived missteps? It's like nothing's changed in a thousand years and we just love to pick up big ol' sharp things and chuck 'em at the first "cunt" who talks too much out of turn. I'm sick of sitting around while women kick other women in the face.I am pretty sure that whatever Cody does or doesn't deserve, she gets more (pointed, claws-out) hate than an equally eccentric man."
The truth is, a woman has never won an Oscar for Best Director. Since 1927, when the awards began, six women have won for best screenplay (four have won best adapted screenplay). Diablo Cody is not a nerdy shrinking violet with thick glasses and a tight bun -- or whatever a female "writer" is supposed to look like. As she said in a recent interview, "I've gotten an excessive amount of attention because I have that cheesy back story. It's really a lot of bells and whistles. We're really all just sedentary geeks, who love to write." Yes, she's a former stripper, yes, she wears leopard print, yes, she has tattoos. Does that make her a "whore" a "cunt" or a "bitch"? There have been comments on this very blog, from women, saying they don't want to see Juno because they don't like Cody's "attitude." Where does the backlash stem from? Is a woman not allowed to be smart, outspoken, sexy and trailblazing? And if she is all of those things, why do so many -- including other women -- automatically hate on her?

P.S. -- Hey, Helen:
you can watch the marion press interview here
Jack LaLanne has a new book "Fiscal Fitness: 8 Steps to Wealth & Health," out in March. When I saw this interview to promote it, I had to share his tough love ~*~thinspiration~*~ and old man attitude with ontd.
Bolded for the tl;dr but it's probably still too long for you...

LaLanne: You've got to keep your health account and your bank account together. If you're a multi-millionaire, and you don't have your health, what good is anything? A lot of people are multimillionaires by the time they're 40 or 50 years old, but they get arthritis and rheumatism, they're fat, and their sex life is gone. Can you make love to your money?
I'm 93, and I still work out two hours every day. And I watch my diet very closely. I'm 5 feet 7½ inches and I weigh 150 pounds. My chest is 46 (inches) and my waist is 28 (inches). My neck is 17 (inches).

LaLanne: On my 70th birthday, I towed 70 boats with 70 people a mile and a half from Long Beach Harbor. I did all the movements with my legs and my arms, and my feet and hands were tied. Now that was tough. I had to train for months and months.
Bankrate: How did you do it?
LaLanne: Willpower. And I was in shape. I had endurance and strength. On one of my birthdays I did a thousand chins and a thousand push-ups.
My next birthday, I'm going to tow my wife across the bathtub.
My mom met him before at a restaurant. She told me his handshake could crush the bones in your hand, but he's sweet and friendly.
& did anyone else lol at the foundry reference?
Jessica Simpson is going overseas to entertain Americans in uniform, she announces in a Web posting.
"Hey ya'll," begins her personal message on the Jessica Simpson site Sweetkises.net. "I just wanted to say hi, and let you know that I am hard at work on my country record, and I can't wait to share it will all of you."
At the heart of her posting, she says, "I am heading to Kuwait to do a show for the troops, then back in the studio."
She concludes, "I love you all and am so blessed by the support and love you show me everyday!! xoxo jess."
Simpson, 27, has extended herself before. Last year, PEOPLE reported, she gave generously to an orphanage in Mexico.
LAPD Now Confirms Britney Investigation
The LAPD is finally commenting on the investigation first reported by TMZ earlier this month.
As we said, Sam Lutfi is under investigation by the Robbery Homicide division of LAPD for allegedly drugging Brit. LAPD officials first said there was no such investigation. Now, Captain Kyle Jackson of Robbery Homicide has issued the following statement:
"The issues regarding Britney Spears are being considered by the department to determine if laws have been violated. Particular suspects have not yet been fully identified nor has a formal investigation into open charges officially commenced. At this time we don't know whether or not a formal investigation will be initiated."
Translation -- They're lookin' at Sam.
UPDATE #1: ARE YOU FOR REAL OR ARE YOU KIDDIN' ME?!
As we reported a week ago, the LAPD says they are NOT investigating Sam Lutfi in connection with accusations that he may have drugged Britney Spears, nor are they investigating him for anything else!
Despite a TMZ headline that declares "LAPD Now Confirms Britney Investigation," the statement they were given by Captain Kyle Jackson of the Robbery Homicide division states, "Particular suspects have not yet been fully identified nor has a formal investigation into open charges officially commenced."
Officer Anna Aguirre of the LAPD just told us this:
"That's false; there's no case that has been initiated against him. Robbery Homicide has not confirmed that. As of right now we don't have anything official -- there's no actual investigation, per se. There's no actual investigation that we've been involved in."
So nothing yet ... maybe something to come?
EXTRA EXTRA THIS JUST IN! X17 IS RUN BY SAM LUTFI!
Singer/actress Miley Cyrus has been banned by her parents from hanging out with Lindsay Lohan, because they fear she's a bad influence. The pair met at the Academy Awards on Sunday, and former teen starlet Lohan offered the Hannah Montana star her number.
However the tabloid the National Enquirer claims Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus forced the 15-year-old to delete it, fearing 21-year-old Lohan - who spent time in rehab last year for alcohol abuse - sets a bad example. And the ban is sure to rile Cyrus, who recently complained she is lonely because her parents refuse to let her hang out with friends they don't approve of.
She said, "They're protective for sure. My mom is more strict than my dad. You want to keep your close circle of friends. And sometimes my mom is saying, 'I have a bad vibe about this person. She needs to hang out with you when I'm around just to keep you safe.' I need more friends. It's kind of like my quest right now just to have more true friends."
NICOLE KIDMAN's publicist has slammed reports the pregnant actress was spotted boozing backstage at the Oscars, insisting the star would never be so careless with her health.
New York Post columnist Cindy Adams claimed Kidman was sipping wine at the Academy Awards on Sunday (24Feb08), and her report has fired up publicist Catherine Olim.
Olim fumes, "Nicole Kidman most certainly did NOT drink white wine or any other alcoholic beverage backstage. She had water and lemon zinger tea. That's it. I know, I was there with her.
"I cannot remember that last time that Cindy Adams got anything right. She's an idiot, and you can quote me."
Paul Dano, coming off his featured role in "There Will Be Blood," will star in and executive produce "Gigantic," an offbeat romantic comedy being helmed by first-time director Matt Aselton. Zooey Deschanel will also star in the indie feature.
Killer Films' Christine Vachon and Charles Pugliese are producing, as is Mindy Goldberg of Epoch Films.
Written by Aselton and Adam Nagata, the script revolves around a mattress salesman and a young woman he meets at his store.
Production is tentatively set for early March in New York. Machine Made Media is financing.
After "Gigantic," Dano will segue to the indie feature "The Good Heart," which reunites him with Brian Cox; the two starred in Michael Cuesta's "L.I.E." Shooting on "Heart" is scheduled for New York and Iceland at the end of April. "Heart" revolves around an abrasive barman (Cox) and a young homeless man (Dano) who becomes his protege.
Dano caught the industry's attention with his work in "Little Miss Sunshine," which he followed up with the characters of Paul and Eli Sunday in "Blood." He is repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment.
Deschanel will next be seen starring opposite Mark Wahlberg in M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening." She is repped by CAA, Seven Summits Management and Hansen Jacobson Teller.

Solange Knowles is following big sister Beyonce's lead and recruiting a band of unknowns to join her on tour. Beyonce held auditions for a dance troupe to appear in her videos and perform live with her and now Solange is hoping to form her own band the same way.
She will be holding auditions for her Hadley Street Dreams Band in her adopted home of Los Angeles on March 6.
And she's hoping that her new recruits will be able to double up as dancers too.
A spokesman for Knowles says, "The Hadley Street Dreams, a '60s-inspired full band, will perform all live shows with Solange in support of her upcoming album, to be released this August."
Knowles' requirements include two female backing singers, a drummer, guitar player, bass player and two pianists.
Musicians who cannot make it to the March audition are invited to submit a try-out video to Knowles' website.
#10: Laugh if you will, but Chris delivered a leopard-print knockout for WWE Diva Maria, and we loved it all the way down to the itty-bitty booty shorts. The body-wrapping, leopard-print hoodie was lined with a glittering black fabric that even Nina Garcia got a kick out of, earning Chris his single solo win.

I know there's some glaring omissions in this list, any thoughts ONTD?
* Her album title, which means Emancipation = Mariah Carey squared
* Migrate, a new song on her album, being T-Pain's first collaboration with a female
* Her new movie Tennesee to premiere in April at Tribeca Film Festival
* And obviously, her new video
* Jack McBrayer (the nerdy guy in the video) was also at TRL with her

Attention, Dwight Schrute: You may be a daddy and not even know it!
As you Office fans know, Angela Kinsey (Angela) is pregnant in real life, so when my good friend Hyla over on our satellite radio show Yo on E! told me he was chatting up Dwight's alter ego Rainn Wilson, I begged him to ask the money -- Q: Is Dwight gonna be a daddy?

Suri Cruise won’t have a little brother or sister anytime soon.
“She’s not pregnant,” Katie Holmes' rep tells Usmagazine.com in response to OK! magazine’s new cover story which asks whether the actress, 29, is expecting.
The magazine quotes a source as saying, "She has that special glow that only pregnant women have. I would say there is a strong possibility that she's pregnant."
When asked if she wants more kids, Holmes told Entertainment Tonight, "Yes, definitely."
But for the time being, Holmes has said, she is content raising daughter, Suri, who turns 2 in April: "We're having the best time, it's so amazing."
British supermodel Naomi Campbell spent a second day recuperating in a Brazilian hospital Wednesday after doctors removed a cyst.
"We have been instructed to not release any information regarding Naomi," a Sirio Libanes Hospital spokeswoman said on condition of anonymity in line with hospital policy. "All I can tell you is that she is still at the hospital and that she is recovering very nicely."
Neither the spokeswoman nor Campbell's publicist, Jeff Raymond, knew how long she would remain there.
Campbell, a frequent visitor to Brazil who earlier this month celebrated Carnival in the northeastern city of Salvador, was admitted in recent days to the Sao Paulo facility.
Gynecologist Jose Aristodemo Pinotti described the procedure as a laparoscopy, in which doctors use a thin, lighted scope to view internal organs.
On Tuesday, the day after the surgery, Pinotti said Campbell was "completely cured and walking in her room."
The supermodel also was being cared for by David Uip, one of Brazil's leading experts in the treatment of infectious diseases, the hospital said.
Ryder Russell Robinson's jet-setting lifestyle doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon! The 4-year-old will continue to travel with his mom, actress Kate Hudson, to film shoots around the world until he's entering high school, Kate says.
Lest anyone doubt the wisdom in that decision, Kate -- as the daughter of actress Goldie Hawn -- says that she need look no further than herself and her brother Oliver Hudson to see that such an arrangement really can work. Kate tells Total Film magazine,
"I grew up in a working family and my children will do the same. Once we hit ninth grade then my parents thought, 'Right, you're in school and if we've got to work, we'll come home every two weeks.' Up until then we were always traveling with our parents, so I'll do the same thing with Ryder."
Ryder is the only child for Kate, 28, and her ex-husband, Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson.
"We have people over every Sunday, and this weekend we were watching the Oscars. Coco was hearing all the clapping, so she comes in the room and says, 'Mom, I'm going to come out and everyone clap for me'."
"So she came out and we were like 'Coco!' and clapping, and she loved it. So she goes back and puts on her Sleeping Beauty wig -- not the whole costume, just the long blonde wig -- and a bathing suit and comes back out again for us to clap. The next time it was Jasmine..."

Tween queens Miley Cyrus and Hayden Panettiere recently talked with Mario Lopez, the host of the new reality competition Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew.
Apparently the Hannah Montana and Heroes stars are big fans of the show!
When asked which dance group she was a fan of, Miley immediately said, “JabbaWockeeZ. They’re my favorite.”
Hayden admitted, “I like to shake my booty, I guess I could say.”
Ms. Panettiere also mentioned going back to the Heroes set:“We go back to filming April. I’m filming a movie in Vancouver so I’ll be joining them in May.” When asked how she spent her time during the strike, Panettiere responds, “Working on my album…The thing about the album that I wanted the most was making sure that every song didn’t sound the same.”

Bill's hair is outrageous y/y?
An extraordinary rough and polished diamond sautoir necklace designed by L'Wren Scott debuted
on the Red Carpet today at the 80th Academy Awards. The spectacular sautoir, worn by Oscar Presenter
Nicole Kidman, contains a total of 7645 diamonds including rough, faceted, and polished diamonds, which
total 1399 carats. The intricate design required in excess of 6200 man hours to handcraft.
People.com said it was worth $2 million.
I thought Nicole's necklace was gorgeous.
Prince threw the mother of all post-Oscar parties Sunday night and everyone was there. Even Best Actor Daniel Day Lewis who presumably drank all the milkshakes. The man loves his lactose. However, one person who wasn’t there was Lindsay Lohan. Apparently the situation reached Code Red when Prince’s people found out she might show up. FOX News reports:
“A big deal was made by Prince’s people that she wasn’t to be invited or if she was already, she needed to be uninvited,” our source said. “Apparently, Lindsay thought they were friends, so I am assuming she would have been disappointed.”
I guess Prince didn’t want anyone getting laid at his party. For those of you who don’t get the joke, let me put it in scientific terms: You see, Y = Lindsay’s vagina and X = every dude’s penis at the party. As X approaches Y the chances of S = guaranteed sex on the dishwasher increases. If Y, again her vagina, is multiplied by C = champagne then you get the equation Y * C = F which is scorch marks o
