Future Box Office Bomb Delayed Until 2009

Mild Spoilers

Jim Sheridan's Brothers, which I've been very much looking forward to, being a fan of Jim's work and Susanne Bier's original 2004 film, is being bumped into '09 -- possibly a late summer release, or possibly one in the fall. MGM had planned it to open it on 12.4.08, but now they'll be taking it to next May's Cannes Film Festival. Draw whatever conclusions you want, but the implication is that it's not a quality issue as much as a concern that it might suffer against the heavy year-end competition.

This despite test-screening responses that seemed (emphasis on the "s" word) to indicate possible Oscar contention. Particular praise has gone to the performances of costars Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman.

Fey Sparks Bidding War With First Book

30 Rock creator Tina Fey looks set to cash in on her recent Emmy triumph - she's reportedly been offered a whopping $6 million to publish her first book.

The comedienne/writer picked up top honours for the hit TV show at the Primetime Emmy Awards last month, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actress.

Her big win ignited a bidding war among publishers, and now they are all vying for Fey to sign on the dotted line to seal a deal to release a tome, according to the New York Post.

However, the book will not be a memoir - the publication claims it's been pitched as "non-fiction humour, more in the style of author, screenwriter and film director Nora Ephron".

All good things must come to an end. And so Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson’s romantic getaway in Mexico concludes as the lovebirds were spotted arriving at LAX International Airport late last night from Cabo San Lucas.

While their arrival was smooth, the well-rested couple got into a little bit of trouble at the terminal after they were accosted by airport security after Sam was seen with a cigarette in her mouth. Under California Law it is illegal to smoke inside public buildings.

After a few sorrys and we’ll-never-do-it-agains, LiLo and SamRo fled outside where they were able to satisfy their nic-fit.

Warner Bros. Pictures is developing a feature version of "Yogi Bear," the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, and Surf's Up co-helmer/co-writer Ash Brannon is attached to direct.

Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, who executive produced "That '70s Show" and are writing the feature Tooth Fairy for Fox, are penning the screenplay. Donald De Line is producing via his De Line Pictures; Karen Rosenfelt is also producing.

The project is planned as a live-action/animated hybrid along the lines of Fox's 2007 hit Alvin and the Chipmunks. Much of the movie will be live-action, but Yogi Bear and sidekick Boo Boo will be done in CG.

Yogi's exploits take place in Jellystone Park, where he and Boo Boo get into good-natured mischief and must elude their nemesis, Ranger Smith.

Fall Out Boy mans up with $50k for No on 8

Photo: Getty Images

As not-so-subtly hinted at last week by our August cover boy Pete Wentz, Fall Out Boy just gave $50,000 to California's No on 8 campaign, the effort to stop a state constitutional amendment that would overturn this year's marriage.

Last week Wentz blogged, "There are a lot of causes out there -- a lot of 'good' fights to be fought. I think proposition 8 is pretty lame -- as many others do too. It's fucking lame."

On Wednesday, Equality California passed along this statement from the band about the donation: "We believe government shouldn't legislate love. Vote no on proposition 8."

Slightly more suitable for a press release, but not any less eloquent. Rock the fuck on, Fall Out Boy!

"We’ve never seen her looking so lovely as she did tonight. We’ve never seen her shine so bright.

Right down to the gloss on her lips, Rose McGowan was the lady in red as she left the Neil George Salon in Beverly Hills today sporting a new brunette hair colour.

The foxy actress recently made headlines after she expressed support for the Irish Republican Army. After starring in Fifty Dead Men Walking, she told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival: “I imagine had I grown up in Belfast, I would 100% have been in the IRA. My heart just broke for the cause. Violence is not to be played out daily and provide an answer to problems, but I understand it.”

Her comments were attacked by the author of the autobiography upon which the film is based, Martin McGartland who said “Rose McGowan’s comments were insulting to victims of IRA terrorism and she should apologize.”

Despite her headline-making controversy, the 35-year-old actress appeared in good spirits. Lesson to be learned: Never underestimate the power of a new ‘do!"

Famous Korean Actress Commits Suicide

One of South Korea's most popular actresses was found dead Thursday in an apparent suicide, police said.

Choi Jin-sil, whose fame earned her the nickname "The Nation's Actress," is believed to have hanged herself in the bathroom of her Seoul home, said Yang Jae-ho, chief investigator at Seoul's Seocho Police Station.

"It's obviously suicide," Yang told reporters, citing a doctor's examination of Choi's body and testimony from family members and friends. He said an investigation was under way.

No formal suicide note has been found, but Choi sent her makeup assistant cell phone text messages twice Wednesday night asking her to "take care of (my) children no matter what happens" and telling her that "I'm sorry," the investigator said.

Her death comes a month after the suicide of a fellow actor rumored to have owed her a large amount of money.
Choi's mother told police that the actress returned home drunk around midnight Wednesday, crying and denying the rumor, before going into the bathroom, Yang said.

Choi made her debut in the late 1980s and as a bright-eyed ingenue, quickly becoming one of South Korea's best-loved actresses. She starred in a number of box-office hits, including the films "My Love, My Bride" of 1990 and "How to Top My Wife" of 1994, and TV dramas such as "Jealousy," "My Rosy Life" and last year's "Bad Woman, Good Woman."
The actress was preparing for the second season of the TV drama "The Last Scandal of My Life" in which she played a woman who finds love with a top actor after a painful divorce.

Choi herself had gone through a difficult divorce in recent years. She had married baseball star Cho Sung-min in 2000 while he was playing for the Japanese pro baseball team Yomiuri Giants, but they divorced in 2004, with the deterioration of their relationship becoming tabloid fodder. They had two children.

A friend of Choi's told police that the actress had worried about raising the children after the divorce and about her future as an actress and often said she wanted to die, police investigator Yang said.

Her mother also told police that Choi had shown signs of depression after the divorce and had been taking a sedative, Yang said.

Choi reportedly had been under stress following the rumors that she had lent money to actor Ahn Jae-hwan, who was found dead in his car last month after committing suicide.

Choi denied the rumors and asked police to investigate who circulated the claims that Ahn killed himself after Choi pressured him to repay the debt.

Yang said a securities firm employee and another suspect are under investigation for defamation.

An ambulance carrying the body of top South Korean actress Choi Jin-sil leaves her home for a hospital as surrounded by media and police officers in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday, Oct. 2, 2008.

Here's something to scare you awake: David Gest regrets his plastic surgery

Photobucket VS Photobucket
David Gest regrets going under the knife. The reality star had a nose job, facelift, cheek implants and was given a cleft chin in 1981.‘I’ve never thought of myself as handsome,’ he says. ‘I can’t bear to look in the mirror. 'I was an idiot to have plastic surgery – there was nothing wrong with my nose.'But nobody could have stopped me at the time. I was a foolish kid.’ David, now 55, says appearing on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006 helped him accept his appearance.‘It is the best thing I ever did,’ he says. ‘I finally realised that people liked me.I guess people saw the real me and realised I wasn’t just a freak in sunglasses.'I get mobbed in the street by fans now. It’s crazy, but I love it.’

Let the record show that I think he's the scum of the earth (mostly because of his accusations toward Liza). Plus who would voluntarily want a cleft chin? Anyways, I just wanted to make sure you guys are up and alert for school and work.

Jessica Simpson Wants To Cook On TV?

Jessica Simpson
looked out of touch with reality as she made her way into Madeo restaurant on Wednesday night (October 1) in West Hollywood, CA.

While it seems her busy career is taking her toll on her it doesn't mean she wouldn't make time for more work, the singer recently said she would love to another reality show, but this time a cooking show.

She says "I'd love to be on a cookery show like Top Chef. Or appear with a celebrity chef. I feel like I'm a pretty good cook. I make really good chicken 'n' dumplings. But I use simple recipes, so I don't know how great I would do."


Angelina Jolie Back As Lara Croft?

Angelina Jolie is a busy woman, on top of running her ever growing household, she just touched down in New York City and has signed on for the sequel of Kung Fu Panda.

But it has been reported that the actress could be signing on to a new Tomb Raider movie, based on the upcoming eight game from the series, Underworld.

While the new Tomb Raider model thinks she is the best Lara Croft, it seems Hollywood bosses prefer Jolie.

A source told The Sun that “Lara is such a fantastic character and the games lend themselves to movies so well, even though the first two movies were not very well received, there is still a lot of confidence in Lara and Tomb Raider as a franchise. The producers would dearly love to get Angelina back in the role and the door is being left open to her. This would be a far darker movie with a lot more emphasis on storyline.”

Guy pays for wrecked Aston Martin

Daniel Craig has revealed a fan paid £200,000 for an Aston Martin DBS wrecked during productions of the 22nd James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" - £70,000 more than a new model would have cost, reports the Daily Record.

The luxury supercar was written off in April when technician Fraser Dunn crashed it through iron railings and into Lake Garda in Italy.

Craig said: "I think somebody paid about £200,000 for this written off Aston Martin. It was a Bond aficionado."

The car was one of six Aston Martins Fraser used on the set of Quantum Of Solace, the 21st Bond film. It had been due to take part in a lakeside scene in which Craig roars away from the site of a fireball crash and a truck ends up in the water.

Craig added: "It was early morning. It was a winding road. It was wet and I think he just lost control.

"But who cares? Because he's fine and it's only a car.

"I saw him the other night and shook his hand."


Kevin Rudolf prepares new album

You may not know him yet, but Kevin Rudolf is on his way to regular rotation on your iPod. Signed to Cash Money/Universal Republic earlier this year, the 25-year-old singer/songwriter/producer released "Let It Rock." The single, which features Lil Wayne, recently peaked at No. 23 on the Pop 100 and No. 33 on the Hot 100.

After labelmate Lil Wayne's album "Da Carter III" sold over a million copies in it's first week of release this June, Rudolf hoping to follow his success as the November 25 release of his debut, "In The City," nears.

"I came up with the track at home back in June and played if for Wayne. He loved it and wanted to jump on it. We mixed it three days later and it was on the radio a few weeks after that," says Rudolf. "Then, when Wayne did a million in a week, that's when we knew we had to put my record out now to take advantage of his success."

Rudolf, who's been playing guitar since he was 12, got his start because of a chance meeting with producer Timbaland in 2004. "I was always a songwriter, but I got into production after my friend Jimmy Douglas introduced me to Timb," he says. "I brought my guitar to the meeting [to] contribute something if I could and ended up playing on a bunch of tracks," including Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right," Lil Kim's "The Jump Off" and Timbaland's "Scream," to list a few.

A year-and-a-half ago, Rudolf decided to release his own project after getting a "real vision of what I could contribute as a producer, musician and songwriter and tapping into my own voice," he explains. One day last January, while at New York's Hit Factory studio working on the set, Rudolf met Cash Money Records' Slim Williams. After playing some of his songs for the executive, Williams offered him a record deal.

Now, the New York native is ready to release "City," which he describes as a "conceptual album that follows the story of my experiences Ð it's like a coming of age story in NYC."

"In The City" was produced entirely by Rudolf except for one track handled by The Neptunes' Chad Hugo. "We were in the studio mixing one day and he walked in the room and said he wanted to do something with us," Rudolf recalls. "We banged some music out that same night!" The set features songs like the seven-minute ballad "Great Escape" and "N.Y.C.," which will be included in the soundtrack to "Fighting," a film starring Terrence Howard due later this year.

To help promote the album, Rudolf will start a promotional radio tour next month and plans on scheduling another tour before 2008 is over. "I've been hearing some crazy stuff, like 'Let It Rock' is Ryan Seacrest and Lindsey Lohan's favorite song right now. I have been very blessed and feel really lucky," says Rudolf. "There is no info or pictures of me anywhere, yet the track has taken a life of its own. The music is truly speaking for itself."


Rob Guest dies after massive stroke

Australia and New Zealand's musical theatre communities are planning a series of tributes, including a public memorial service in Melbourne, for entertainer Rob Guest, who died this morning after suffering a massive stroke.

Productions including Billy Elliot, The Rocky Horror Show and The Phantom of the Opera will dedicate to Guest, who suffered a massive stroke at just 58 years old.

Friends are planning a public service at a Melbourne theatre - either the Regent or the Princess - with songs and speeches.

Guest's family met this afternoon to discuss arrangements for the service, in about ten days' time, and also a private funeral to be held early next week.

Following one of the most successful runs in European concert history, Madonna returns to the U.S. for the start of her mammoth Sticky & Sweet Tour with five sold out shows in the New York area.

Jessica Alba spends $16,000 on clothes that don’t fit her.

Jessica Alba’s secret for dropping the last of her pregnancy pounds? A new fall wardrobe.

On September 16, the new mom spent an hour at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills and shelled out more than $16,000 — for clothes that were at least a size too small for her.

“Jessica is determined to get back her pre-baby body,” her pal reveals. “She really thinks it will help to motivate her to work hard and lose the extra weight. Of course, she already looks amazing. She already has the flattest stomach you’ve ever seen! But she’s an actress and wants to get back into the size 2 she was before she gave birth.”

Jessica, who along with husband Cash Warren welcomed daughter Honor on June 7, gained 35 pounds while she was expecting. Now, the 27-year-old works out at least three times a week with celebrity fitness guru Ramona Braganza and follows a strict diet of low-fat, high-protein foods like oatmeal, egg whites, fish and brown rice. “Jessica has always preferred healthy food,” notes Braganza.

Jay-Z 'Dreams of Having a Family'

Jay-Z was flying solo at the U.N. Global Leadership Awards Gala in New York Wednesday night. But even without wife Beyoncé Knowles by his side, he still happily chatted about his plans to start a family – eventually.

The rapper, who was being honored for his work to bring clean water to young people in Africa, has spent several weeks touring the continent.

But unlike Angelina Jolie and Madonna, it didn't inspire him to adopt. "No," the Grammy-winner (he got hitched in April) told PEOPLE. "I don't want to bring any kids home."

But Jay-Z does want babies of his own. "Most people dream of having a family someday," he told reporters. "So I'm just a regular American boy."

In the meantime, he's focused on his humanitarian work – noting that more than 2 billion people don't have access to clean water.

"Many charities, you close your eyes and cross your fingers and hope that the money gets to the people who really deserve it," he said. "But with this, I got to go to Africa, see the water pumps. I got to see the kids turn them on."

Leighton Meester Does Gotham

Leighton Meester
is looking smoking hot on the cover for the fall issue of Gotham Magazine, to see pictures of Meester celebrating the magazine click here.

On the show influencing her own personal style: Yeah, of course, of course. It makes you much more aware of what you put on, aware of trends and styles. And in a photo shoot, especially one like this, it’s kind of cool to try something new. I’m not trying to go overtly sexy or too fashion-y. I have a lot more knowledge of designers and things like that. But I think it has a lot less to do with what designers you wear and what the trends are than who you are and what you feel good in. I still feel good in jeans and T-shirts for every day, so that hasn’t changed. But I like dressing up more.

On if she thinks about what she is wearing because she is in the public eye: Not really. You can’t pay attention to what tabloids say. That’s not what my job is about—it’s not about getting judged by other people. And while fashion is an awesome, exciting part of my job, because that’s what the show is partly about, it really doesn’t define who you are. You look ridiculous if you dress for people other than yourself. It’s just sad.

On what is coming up in Gossip Girl: There’s a lot of Chuck and Blair stuff. At the end of last season, he totally blew it. I think when he comes back, he kind of regrets what he did. He wants to make up for it, but he’s not going to be able to. Blair will not let him get off that easy, she’s going to make it a little difficult for him. She’s seeing a guy named Lord Marcus; he’s from England, and of course, it makes Chuck incredibly jealous. And it’s hard, Blair really does want something, but she can’t let her guard down because she’s been hurt a lot. Of course, nothing can be perfect for her, even though all she ever strives for is to be perfect. And there’s a lot of Serena and Blair “frenemy” stuff…

On why people try to make a rivalry between her and Blake Lively: I couldn’t tell you, to be honest. I think it does have to do with being a girl. And I think that people are just not creative. They want us to be our characters on the show. They want us to all be dating each other and fighting with each other, when in reality it’s a TV show.

Over the last few years she has caught quite a bit of global media coverage thanks to her now infamous Youtube clips. See Sara, unlike uppity conservative bitches like Elisabeth Hasselbeck, is aware of her prominent role on the show as the program's central sex appeal. She takes her duties as that gimmick VERY SERIOUSLY by dancing provocatively with guests and inviting them to hand search her voluptuous body for concealed items, regularly riding a surfboard while dressed in a tiny skin-tight dress and she comes to work each morning wearing a top that's soooo small she spends the entire episode fighting to keep it covering her bolstering breasts. Her entire on-air time can be summed up in a single montage clip filled with numerous nip slip episodes, up skirt moments and infinite cleavage.

Lauren Conrad Mocked and Destroyed on 'Family Guy'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"The Hills" hottie Lauren Conrad was actually happy to be made fun of as a guest character on an upcoming episode of "Family Guy."

"I thought it would be funny to see if we could get her to read very, very dense historical documents centering around the second World War," the show's creator Seth McFarlane told Pop Tarts. "Lauren did one scene where she had to read a paragraph on scientific self-analysis, which I thought was funny."

But the perennial party princess actually, like, impressed the show’s staff.

"She made an effort (to understand the text), so let me just put it that way," Seth said with a sly smile. "She took it very seriously and even hired an acting coach."

Conrad plays a genius in the episode — but it is comforting to know that she doesn't really take herself and her reality TV fame too seriously.

"It’s amazing, they destroy me in it. I’m totally making fun of myself," L.C. told us. "What can I say? It was funny, I had to go over historical facts and like, biology and weird formulas I had no idea about."

Curtis Muhammad Conway Jr,the son of Pro Boxer Laila Ali and retired NFL player Curtis Conway, is making his debut in OK! magazine.

Curtis was born on August 26th and had to be induced. According to Laila Ali:”The doctor thought that the baby might have a growth restriction. [During checkups] they measure the baby’s head, his abdomen and his legs. Sometimes, when the baby is not getting enough nutrients, the abdomen will be smaller because the organs aren’t really needed yet, but the head and legs will keep growing. When I got to 39 weeks, they said, “I think we should go ahead and take the baby out,” because he wasn’t getting 100 percent of his nutrients. That was hard, too, because I didn’t want to be induced. You can plan all you want, but things happen!”

Adds Duff, "I'm always wearing scarves to de-accentuate my shoulders."

Swift tells Us her skirts and jeans "have to be either low- or high-waisted. It can't be in the middle; I'm so tall [5-foot-11] it would make me look weird."

"Sherlock Holmes" ET interview with RDJ and Rachel McAdams

Collapse )

ET was in London to speak to the stars of the highly anticipated blockbuster 'Sherlock Holmes,' starring Robert Downey Jr. and Rachel McAdams.

The Guy Ritchie-directed film, due to begin shooting this month, will feature Downey Jr. as famed detective Sherlock Holmes in a mystery that promises a fresh take on the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle character.

The movie will present Holmes as more adventurous and less formal than previous screen incarnations and Downey Jr. says he is excited to take on the new action-packed challenge, saying it promises to be "big and fun."

He also reveals he'll have a lot of intense fight scenes in the film, which he says should be no problem for him since he has been training in martial arts for the past five years.

The 43-year-old actor's new project comes on the heels of his hugely successful blockbuster 'Iron Man,' which has already earned $318.3 million for Paramount Pictures at the U.S. box office.

For her part, McAdams describes her character as an underworld adventuress with a criminal mind, but who also has her romantic and "delicious" sides. She says it will be a pleasure working with Downey Jr. and Ritchie, whom she calls a "collaborative, experimental director."

Based on a forthcoming comic book written by the film's producer Lionel Wigram, 'Sherlock Holmes' will be distributed by Warner Bros for release in 2010.

Britney Goes Back to L.A. - Oct 2

Drawing an end to her short trip to the east coast, Britney Spears was spotted arriving at JFK Airport for a departing flight out of New York City on Thursday (October 2).

Accompanied by her father and security personnel, the "Womanizer" singer carefully made her way through a crowd of onlookers - venturing towards the security checkpoint.

During her visit to the Big Apple, Miss Spears promoted her new single, also visiting Philip Sousa Middle School in the Bronx borough of New York City to meet and greet student.

As previously reported by Gossip Girls, the comeback queen presented the students with a $10,000 check via Elizabeth Arden, which is to be used as an endowment for the school’s new music program.

To finish off the trip, Brit spent her final night out at Soho house before heading over to the Box nightclub to take in a burlesque show - possibly to get some ideas for her tour-in-the-making.

    Britney Spears - Womanizer

Jamie Spears bans Alli Sims from contacting Britney

Britney Spears’ cousin and former assistant Alli Sims has been barred from contacting the pop star.

Sims was once a regular at the Toxic hitmaker’s side, but she now admits that since Spears’ father Jamie took control of the singer’s affairs earlier this year, she has not been allowed to have any contact with her cousin.

Sims was recently accused of attempting to profit from her relationship with the star, by selling off clothes, jewellery and accessories she was given as Spears’ sidekick.
She tells New York Post gossip column PageSix, “I have no idea when I’ll see her again. I miss her every day.”

“When Spears’ dad gained control, he put some rules down… it’s just best for her to not communicate with a lot of people. My main concern is her being OK.”

The move reportedly comes as Jamie Spears attempts to remove allegedly negative influences from his daughter’s life, as she recovers from her breakdown in January.

Spears was also banned from seeing her former manager, Sam Lutfi, who was served with a restraining order in February ordering him to stay away from the singer and her family.


Naomi Campbell blames 9/11 for arrest

SupermodeL Naomi Campbell has blamed her spat with British Airways (BA) on the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The catwalk star was escorted off a BA plane and taken into custody at Heathrow Airport in April (08) after spitting at a police officer during a row over her luggage.

She was subsequently sentenced to community service in London after admitting to the incident, but maintains she was provoked after being called a racial slur.

And now Campbell, who had been a loyal BA customer until the fracas, insists she will never step on board another BA plane - claiming the 2001 terrorist attacks in America have changed air travel forever.

She says, "I think after 9/11 you can't say anything anymore on a plane. I've flown British Airways for years, since I was a child. The stewardesses will tell you that I would get on a plane, put on the blanket and go to sleep.

"I'll never fly that airline again, but nothing's really lost. I did get my luggage. I was reunited with my YSL (Yves Saint Laurent), and everything was cool."

Paris Hilton inspired by Kylie Minogue

Paris Hilton’s new pop record has been inspired by Aussie beauty Kylie Minogue.

The socialite said that she’s a big fan of the ‘can’t get you out of my head’ hitmaker and wanted her second album to be a tribute to her musical heroine.

"I was really inspired by Kylie Minogue. I love her; I just love that European dance vibe,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. "The last album was completely hip-hop and this is completely different,” she added.

Paris also said that her new pop sound features few "tongue-in-cheek" songs, called ‘Platinum Blonde’ and ‘Paris For President’, as well as a hard-hitting song, ‘Jailhouse Baby’ – which talks of the time she spent behind bars in 2007.

ellen talks prop 8

"Though she’s yet to join the ranks of Brad Pitt and Pete Wentz by publicly making a major donation to the campaign to fight California’s Proposition 8, Ellen Degeneres denounced the proposition last night during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Even Leno — with all his homophobic tendencies — got into the action by spreading a gay-friendly message of tolerance.

Said the late night host: “The economy is falling apart — I don’t care what you do!”

Added newly married Ellen: “I look at the people that are losing their homes and they’re forclosing. And people in Texas who have lost their homes. There are so many people that need money right now. And if you’re raising millions of dollars, give it to those people, please. Because you don’t need to promote hate.”

The marquees of the Broadway theatres will be dimmed Oct. 3 at 8 PM for one minute to pay tribute to the late Paul Newman, who died Sept. 26 at the age of 83 after battling cancer.

In a statement Charlotte St. Martin, executive director of The Broadway League, said, "For over half a century Paul Newman has graced our stages and inspired our souls with his brilliant talent. He received a Tony nomination for his inventive role as the Stage Manager in Our Town. After beginning his illustrious career on stage, his love for theatre continued throughout his life as demonstrated by the Newman family's support of the renowned Westport Country Playhouse. Off-stage, his tireless devotion to philanthropic work has enhanced many lives and worthwhile causes. His presence everywhere will be missed."

To hear Allison Mack herself tell it, there's "lots of craziness" on tap for Smallville's Chloe this season.

Plus: The secret to her and Tom Welling's "super" chemistry. — Matt Mitovich

TVGuide.com: For starters, congratulations on being the top-rated female in our Sexiest Sci Fi Stars poll.

Allison Mack: Really?! [Laughs] I had no idea! That’s cool.

TVGuide.com: Well-played!
Mack: Thank you! That’s so interesting....

TVGuide.com: The last time we spoke was two years ago ("Smallville's Chloe, You Got Us Mail"). How would you say Chloe has changed in that time?
Mack: Oh my gosh.... Well, she's come to have superpowers, she's been killed about four times [Laughs], she's getting married, she's been infected by Brainiac..... I think she has come into her own in a way that she never has before. I think she's starting to understand what she wants separate and aside from Clark, and she is building her own relationship with herself and her own life, and proactively going after all of that instead of just running around and doing whatever she thinks Clark needs. She's grown into her own woman.

"Kung Fu Panda" sequel set for 2011

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Panda-ing to fans, DreamWorks Animation has officially confirmed that a sequel to its animated hit "Kung Fu Panda" is in the works and has set a release date of June 3, 2011.

The film, which will reunite Jack Black, as kung fu fan Po, Angelina Jolie and other members of the original voice cast, will be released in 3-D -- the new standard for all DreamWorks Animation movies starting next year -- on regular and Imax screens worldwide.

The 2011 date means that "Panda" will be sharing the summer box-office schedule with Disney/Pixar's "Cars 2," which Disney moved last week from a 2012 release to summer 2011.

The original "Panda," which grossed more than $626 million worldwide, is DreamWorks Animation's most successful nonsequel. It will be released on DVD and Blu-ray November 9.

Larry Flynt Produces Sarah Palin Look-Alike Porno

Voters will soon be able to see a new side of Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin. Or at least her look-alike.

Feeding off the obsession surrounding the Republican vice-presidential hopeful, Hustler founder and free-speech advocate Larry Flynt has shot an X-rated film featuring a Palin doppelganger, according to New York's Daily News. (And yes, they recruited an actress/"actress," not Tina Fey).

Producers put out a casting call on CraigsList in L.A. almost immediately following the Republican National Convention. The ad offered $3,000 for "a Sarah Palin look-alike for an adult film to be shot in the next 10 days."

The film has since been shot, but the title has yet to be released. The blogosphere has already crafted a few names, such as "Juneau You Want It" and "Northern XXXsposure." (We personally like "To Russia with Love.") SOURCE

Audrina Inks Deal With Divine Rights of Denim

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Following in the fashionable footsteps of her Hills co-stars, Audrina Patridge has inked a deal with Divine Rights of Denim not only to co-design a line, but be the face of it as well. Audrina has already proved that she is more of a jeans and T-shirt type of gal than her fashionista former roommate Lauren Conrad, and she already has a favorite pair from the brand — the skinny “Lust” style in black stretch. Unlike Lauren’s higher-priced line, Audrina’s denim collaboration will likely be more affordable — Divine Rights of Denim jeans normally start at $58. Audrina’s line and her ads will be coming out in November.


Edit:// E! Just posted this on their blog:

First, she moved out. Now, Audrina Patridge is moving up—by way of her first endorsement deal.

The Hills star and sometimes actress (is there a difference?) will become the new face of Divine Rights Denim, a source tells E! News. She will collaborate on jean designs as well.

According to Divine's director of sales, Angel Shoshan, Audrina apparently possesses what is known in the jeans world as a "real denim edgy friendliness" that the company wanted.

"She has that flavor to her," says Shoshan. "She can wear a wife beater and jeans, and she just looks comfortable and hot."

Also, FYI Audrina makes a reported $700,000 a season for The Hills.

Rachael Ray: "I Thought I Was Going To Die"

Rachael Ray has found herself in the middle of a throat cancer scare after doctors found an abnormal growth near her larynx late last month.

Although preliminary tests have found the growth to be benign, the Emmy-winning domestic goddess, a former chain smoker, must undergo surgery to have the lump removed, the National Enquirer reports. The procedure will leave the chatty culinary expert without her voice for approximately two months, tabloid insiders says.

“Rachael’s first thoughts were she had throat cancer….She thought she was going to die!”

“Doctors told her they plan to remove the growth,” an Enquirer spy blabs, “And she will not be able to speak for up to two months.”

Rachael is presently taping a “marathon” of segments that will air on her hit daytime series, The Rachael Ray Show, while she recuperates from surgery.

so now hairspray is closing, but not before bringing back...

Hairspray, the Tony Award-winning hit Broadway musical, is expected to close in mid-January 2009, but not before welcoming back the Mother of All Ednas — Harvey Fierstein.

Playbill.com has learned that Fierstein — who won a 2003 Tony Award as Best Actor in a Musical for playing Edna Turnblad, the mama of a portly Baltimore dreamer named Tracy — would return to the Neil Simon Theatre between November and mid-January to give the smash a colorful sendoff.

It's not hard to guess that Fierstein's presence (and the announcement that the show is in its final months) is expected to re-ignite the box office and that the show just might stay on fire into the spring — or even beyond. (The closing notice of Rent excited theatregoers and prompted an extension beyond the first planned closing date.)

A spokesman for Hairspray told Playbill.com Oct. 2 that an official announcement about the show's future is imminent.

parents hate cbs

The Parents Television Council filed an indecency complaint with the FCC over the ~Peekaboo Penis~ from last week's episode of Survivor.

The self-appointed watchdog group Parents Television Council has filed an indecency complaint with the Federal Communications Commission over the season debut of "Survivor: Gabon" -- ironically the first episode of this series to be broadcast in high-definition.
If you look closely at participants in a race, you see Marcus Lehman's little colonel "falling out" of his boxer shorts as he runs to the finish line, PTC reports. "The image was not obscured in any way," PTC notes in disgust. In fairness, the episode had a lot of pixelation -- just not of Lehman's male pride.
"Although this instance was brief, it was nonetheless shocking and purposeful," PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement.
CBS, in a statement, insisted it was "a completely unintentional, inadvertent and fleeting incident that was virtually undetectable when viewed in real time." "Fleeting" was the word of choice when the Super Bowl Nipplegate story broke, too. "In the first 24 hours after the broadcast, before freeze-frame images were widely posted online, we received one viewer comment from the 13 million who watched the telecast," the network said.
PTC had this to say about that:

"CBS's decision to hide behind excuses that the incident was 'fleeting' and didn't generate an immediate flood of complaints is the epitome of irresponsibility. The number of 'fleeting' penises we expect to see on broadcast television is zero."

In case you haven't seen it, this is the penis.

I wanted to address my fans about my upcoming album.

I have worked on this album for close to one year. I have taken the time so I can create my sound. Something that says who I am at this stage in my life. I have poured my heart and soul into it. It is my baby. It is the most time I have spent on any project since my first records as a member of Destiny's Child when I was 15 years old. I have recorded over 70 songs and have created a sound that reveals all of me. I am in a different place right now and I wanted people to see the many sides of me. The music is upbeat for the dance, fun side and it is reflective, passionate and serious for the personal side. I have taken risks here. I am not afraid and my music will explain it all. There is no label or tag on my sound. It's me and I am so excited to share it with the world on November 18."

Other chartings for "Womanizer" include placing #72 on Billboard's Hot Airplay, which measures radio airplay, and is one of the three component charts, along with the Hot 100 Singles Sales and the Hot Digital Songs charts, that determine the chart positions of singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

"Womanizer" also climbed up Mediabase, which monitors more than 1,800 radio stations in 180 U.S. and Canadian markets, coming in at #29, up 4 spots from yesterday.

giada de laurentits defends her food fuckery

Giada De Laurentiis has led a lush life, with her idyllic childhood in Italy, family connections in Hollywood, success as a brand-name chef and happiness as a wife and mother. Just don't call her "food porn."

"Porn? I'm not doing porn! What the hell are people talking about?" Giada De Laurentiis is sipping an iced coffee at the Catch restaurant in Santa Monica's Casa del Mar Hotel, and attempting to deny her place as the resident Food Network seductress. The mission seems pretty futile. With her petite 5´3" figure enveloped in a slinky gray dress paired with silver gladiator sandals, her "food porn" sex appeal—praised in men's magazines like Details and Esquire since her TV debut six years ago—is obvious. And Giada's silky, long brown hair, wide, gleaming smile and, well, décolletage didn't exactly stop two of her cookbooks from climbing to the top of the New York Times bestseller list in 2005 and 2006.

Old man Gary post

Distribution Workshop, the new Hong Kong-based production and sales outfit founded by Nansun Shi and Jeffrey Chan, has picked up international rights outside Japan to upcoming Japanese thriller Rain Fall, starring Gary Oldman.

The $12m film, directed by Australian Max Mannix and produced by Japan's Satoru Iseki and Megumi Fukasawa, is currently in post-production in Australia after shooting in New York and Tokyo.

Based on the best-selling novel by Barry Eisler, the film stars Japanese actor Kippei Shiina (Shinobi, Sakuran) as the assassin John Rain who is forced to protect the daughter of one of his own targets. Oldman plays the chief officer of the CIA Tokyo bureau, while Kyoko Hasegawa (Nanayo) plays the daughter.

The film is backed by Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan, Sony Music Entertainment Japan, Asatsu ADK and Lawson Ticket. It is being billed as one of the first Japanese productions to use Western-style financing methods, including a completion bond supplied by Film Finances and bank financing from Standard Chartered.

SPE Japan will release in the film in Japan in April 2009 through one of the country's largest circuits on around 300 prints.

Shi and Chan are commencing sales talks on the project at the upcoming Asian Film Market at Pusan. Their new outfit is a joint venture between themselves and Beijing-based Bona International Film Group, which is China's biggest independent distributor. Former Mandarin Films executive Virginia Leung recently joined the company as head of sales.

Distribution Workshop will also be handling titles from Irresistible Films, a fund established by Japan's Avex Group and Hong Kong producer Bill Kong, which is holding a launch event at Pusan.

The company has also picked up international rights to Chinese sleeper hit Almost Perfect, a comedy directed by newcomer Wang Yuelun and starring Huang Yi (Plastic City), which grossed $7m during the period of the Beijing Olympics.

TomKat and Suri Step Out in the Big Apple

Ever the adorable family, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were spotted holding hands with daughter Suri as they left their downtown New York City apartment on Thursday (October 2).

On their way outside, the “Top Gun” stud watched his little girl drag her tiny gold Mary Jane flats as Katie helped out by carrying Suri’s doll.
Meanwhile, as the big October 16th Opening Night of Katie’s Broadway show “All My Sons” grows closer (two weeks from tonight), it looks like the fears that audiences weren’t interested in seeing her onstage are already being quashed.

In fact, “All My Sons” turned in some impressive first-week sales, topping the Broadway theaters with a whopping $684,002. Attendance reports also tell that the show has been playing to nearly full houses every night.

New Casting Scoop

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a super-size edition of Casting Scoops featuring exclusive intel on Saturday Night Live, Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Damages, and more!

Saturday Night Live: On the off chance this weekend's SNL features a spoof of tonight's vice presidential slugfest, I can tell you who will be playing PBS moderator Gwen Ifill: Queen Latifah. A well-placed source confirms to me exclusively that SNL has gone ahead and secured Latifah's services for Saturday's show. The insider cautions, however, that the debate sketch isn't 100 percent locked -- and a final decision might not come down until Saturday. There's also no official word as to whether Tina Fey would be back as Palin, but this much I know for sure: If she loved me, she'd do it.

The New Adventures of Old Christine: Talk about a stretch: Megan Mullally is playing a homophobe! This November, the Emmy-winning Will & Grace laugh riot will guest star on Old Christine as the head of the family values-based organization that owns Christine’s gym. Her character threatens to shut down the fitness center when she learns of Christine and Barb's marriage.

Desperate Housewives: Fat Actress' Rachael Harris will appear in a November episode of Housewives as a reporter doing a profile on nationally renowned domestic goddess Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross).

Grey's Anatomy: I'm happy to report that negotiations between Grey's and Alias alum Melissa George have produced a signed contract. It remains unclear when exactly George's bisexual intern will first show up at Seattle Grace, but if I know Shonda Rhimes, it'll be the precise moment Erica and Callie find true happiness.

Damages: An Emmy can do wonders for one's career, but can it also raise the dead? Apparently so! Fresh off his Supporting Actor win as Damages' Ray Fiske, who shot and killed himself in last season's penultimate episode, Zeljko Ivanek has inked a deal to make what my source calls "several appearances" in season 2. Hope Patty Hewes isn't afraid of ghosts!


Megan Mullally ♥
No Tina Fey = blasphemy

Anyone watching the debate?

Harvey Weinstein Made to Look Really Bad Over 'Reader' Flap
Harrassing Sydney Pollack on deathbed? Oh Harvey...

I have never met Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood Daily and quite frankly I hope I never do. She has an arrogance about her that is extremely off-putting and the way she feeds off the negativity that she generates is not at all flattering. However, that doesn't mean she isn't good at her job, which is probably best described as a Hollywood power blogger and she is offering up quite a doozy this evening.

On Sunday, Finke made a claim that Harvey Weinstein had harrassed the widow of the late Anthony Minghella as well as Sydney Pollack while on his deathbed, all in relation to getting The Reader into theaters in time for an Oscar run. Finke then went on to quote an email from Scott Rudin saying:

Kate Moss 50kg gold statue unveiled

A 50kg solid gold statue of Kate Moss has been unveiled at a contemporary sculpture exhibition at London's British Musuem.
The statue, titled "Siren" and valued at $3.36 million, is thought to be the largest gold statue to be made since ancient Egyptian times, the Associated Press reported.

Marc Quinn's work, described as an "Aphrodite of our times" is part of the Statuephilia exhibition.

"I thought the next thing to do would be to make a sculpure of the person who's the ideal beauty of the moment," he said.
"But even Kate Moss doesn't live up to the image."

Damien Hirst will commandeer the historic wall cases of the Enlightenment Gallery and fill them with 200 specially created skulls, the Associated Press reported.

The resulting work, Cornucopia, will address Hirst's fascination with death.

Bryan Adams Rocks Brand-New Veggie Testimonial

Grammy Award winner Bryan Adams is one heck of a hard-rockin' musician and a photographer extraordinaire to boot—this Renaissance man has even helped PETA with our own celebrity photo shoots. During his nearly three decades of entertaining the masses, his talents have garnered him 13 Grammy nominations; five Golden Globe nominations for songs he wrote for films, including the film Bobby; and three Oscar nominations. He's recorded hits such as "Straight From the Heart," "Heaven," and "Summer of '69"—a karaoke favorite 'round here!
He's also a vegan, and he's been one for quite some time—17 years to be exact! He says he gets the energy and endurance he needs to put on a rockin' show largely from the food he puts into his body.

Sadly, his tour isn't taking him to any U.S. venues this year, but you can check out his new veggie testimonial right here!

Other Viewing Options

Yes, it's safe to say you won't find this Canadian scarfing down an unhealthy, cruelty-filled bucket of fried chicken. In fact, you might remember that the Kingston, Ontario–born rocker spoke out against most of the KFCs in Canada before the new animal welfare standards were adopted there. To adopt a cruelty-free diet just like Bryan's, you can order your very own "Vegetarian Starter Kit" right here.

Too bad you're not coming to the U.S. this go-around, Bryan, but we'll keep our fingers crossed for next time.



Speaking of animals, this post is dedicated to Rupert.  R.I.P.
I love you ecctv for accepting this post to honour dear Rupert!


P.S. Did you notice that ONTD is a "friend" of PETA.  (To the right side here.)  You were all PETA members (indirectly) and you didnt even know it!  :-P

If you want to make some wise-ass comment about how Bill is gay/looks like a girl and the band sucks... don't. Because it's not really funny, and you're not really being witty, either. Yes, he looks like an electrocuted raccoon and acts femininely, but he's still a good singer and they've worked hard. Now, is anyone going to the one in Orlando? I sure as hell am!

Alec Baldwin, Amateur Legal Scholar


In this super exciting article published October 2nd in the Harvard Law Record (or at least the online version), Alec Baldwin makes the transition from the most likable but still somewhat douchey person on earth to his new profession, Amateur Legal Scholar. It's pretty long and potentially not as super exciting as I claimed in the first sentence, but here are the best parts, with an interruption from me, writing in italics:

Alec Baldwin takes on family law

Actor speaks about his own custody battles, advocates paternal rights

By: Chris Szabla

Posted: 10/2/08

Alec Baldwin is on a roll - just recently, the affable actor won an Emmy Award for his role on the critically-acclaimed sitcom, 30 Rock. But the 50 year old Baldwin wasn't smiling when he entered Ames Courtroom last Thursday, September 25. He was making his second appearance at HLS to engage in a serious discussion with Professor Jeannie Suk on the problems of divorce courts and custody proceedings.

Baldwin reserved much of his consternation for the gender biases which he believes pervade family law. He was concerned when, from the outset, he was assured the specific custody officer his case had been assigned was noted as "good for fathers". "It was troubling," he observed, "that other [custody offices] might have been bad."

More legal critique goes here in the full article..... I'd like to point out that Alec may not be a lawyer, but I bet he's watched his fair share of Law and Order, and really, isn't it about the same?

Baldwin went on to propose a new default rule for custody proceedings. Currently, he said, courts had extensively broad discretion in such cases. He called for a presumption of innocence, and a standard of shared, 50-50 custody - unless a party could prove something fundamentally wrong with the parenting skills of the other.

Even if his proposals were adopted, however, Baldwin believes the legal system is plagued by more fundamental problems. He took aim, for example, at the opacity of the legal profession.

To Baldwin, the lack of oversight that ordinary people could exercise over law meant that the legal system looked like "a game two lawyers play…if a guy cuts another guy's throat, and he wins, it's a game. Nothing that looks or smells like justice," Baldwin concluded, "walks into an American courtroom anymore."

Bob & Marty together again

Now this is more like it. With all due respect to animated movies, we’ve been writing about talking bears and pandas all morning and were crying out for something with a bit of substance.

And movie news doesn’t come much more substantial than the reteaming of Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro, does it?

The dream team – the guys who made (deep breath) Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King Of Comedy, New York, New York, Cape Fear, Goodfellas and Casino together – haven’t worked together since 1995. Since then, there have been flirtations – most notably on The Winter Of Frankie Machine (which De Niro is now set to make with Michael Mann) – but nothing concrete.

But now, the duo look set to work together again on the Paramount crime flick, I Heard You Paint Houses. Huzzah, hurrah, hurray!

The movie will be based on a book by Charles Brandt, a writer who befriended an Irish hitman called Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran (told you he was Irish) before he died in 2004. Sheeran confessed a number of killings to Brandt including, so it’s claimed, the dismemberment of the famous missing Teamster boss, Jimmy Hoffa.

But Sheeran was also reported to have killed around 25 people while working for the Mob (the book’s title is taken from hitman slang for blood splatter on walls).

Sounds like typical Scorsese/De Niro territory to us, but we’re sure that the duo can find something new to mine here.

It’s early days yet – De Niro has signed on as Sheeran, but Scorsese has just brought on Steven Zaillian to adapt the book into a screenplay. So it could be a couple of years before anything happens with this – but we’re hopeful.

Scorsese has, of course, forged a fruitful working relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio over the last few years (four movies and counting!), but the sparks he creates in tandem with De Niro are special. They’re more than special – they’re cinema history, and we can’t wait to see those sparks fly again.

Scorsese will produce the movie, along with De Niro and his producing partner, Jane Rosenthal.

Lil Wayne Blogs It Up


Lil Wayne, the inexplicably attractive yet understandably popular hip hop artist who is known to some as the greatest living rapper, has recently begun a series of blogs for ESPN.com.

According to the editor's note on the talented lyricist's blog, "This is the first in a blog series by mega-rapper of the moment Lil Wayne. When speaking to him for a package about at-bat music in MLB (a bunch of guys use Lil Wayne), he offered to blog for us."

Here is a delightful excerpt from his first blog:

Hello, everybody.

This is the first entry in the blog I'm doing for ESPN The Magazine. I don't watch nothing but sports—no movies, no news, no television shows—so I thought this would be fun.

Further on in the same blog entry, Weezy talks about some of his favourite teams and athletes, especially noting his fondness for tennis superstar Roger Federer:

Besides the Packers, my favorite teams are the Red Sox, the Lakers and the Boston Bruins. I also love tennis. I had a lot of people over to my place to watch the Wimbledon final this year, and we went crazy. I love Federer but Nadal is my favorite. He's the man. I love his motivation and his heart is big. He leaves it on the court. And when I found out he still lives with his family despite his success, that was it for me. That's unbelievable right there. That just goes to show you where his heart is at, how much love he has.

The ESPN website does not specify how many entries Lil Wayne will be responsible for.
