ZQ and Dania Ramirez out for a stroll

Zachary Quinto catches up with his Heroes costar Dania Ramirez with a quick shopping trip in West Hollywood on Saturday afternoon (June 13).

Zach, 32, will soon be heading out to NYC to produce and star in a movie about the world financial meltdown. He tells Jam, “I would play a sort of young financial analyst who comes from a rocket science background and applies that knowledge to the financial world. It’s a significantly different character than either [Star Trek's] Spock or [Heroes'] Sylar. It has elements of Glengarry Glen Ross.”

It is the biggest private yacht in existence and comes with a missile-detection system, two helipads, a luxury spa, swimming pool and a miniature submarine.

But when you're Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, only the most ostentatious displays of wealth will do.

His latest baby is the Eclipse, a 557-footer reported to have cost a staggering £300million.

Can't wait to see Dasha and her fake boobs all over this.

Matthew Gray Gublers new movie 'How to Be a Serial Killer' to Debut at SDCC 09

The theatrical premiere of How to Be a Serial Killer is on July 24th at the Gaslamp 15 in Downtown San Diego. A hilariously disturbing dark comedy, How To Be A Serial Killer is the story of Mike Wilson (Dameon Clarke), a charismatic, educated, and articulate young man who has found his life’s purpose in exterminating ... people. Determined to spread his message about the joy of serial killing, Mike recruits a lost soul named Bart (Matthew Gray Gubler) to be his pupil and leads him through his 10-step program, which includes such quintessential lessons as theories on corpse disposal, balancing work and play, practical methods of killing, and planning a getaway. Mike and Bart’s curriculum is interrupted when Mike’s girlfriend (Laura Regan) discovers what’s beneath her boyfriend’s charming exterior. Bart discovers that with determination, discipline, and hard work, the great life he has always dreamed of is only a victim away.

WonderGirls will move on with the plans of their American debut.

The girls who had been confirmed to be the performing guests to Jonas Brothers‘ World Tour 2009, will be releasing a digital single on 27th June. And from 27th June all the way till mid August, they will be performing for the opening show to Jonas Brothers‘ World Tour concert. They will be performing the songs ‘Nobody’ and ‘Tell Me’ for the concert. And they will be performing the English versions to the songs.

One of the American staff said, ‘The song ‘Nobody’ is a great charming song for listeners of all ages from whatever nationality. Not only is the song perfect, the choreography is perfect.”

“The girls will debut with their own charms and not having to transform into the other American artistes.” Park Jin Young will be the producer to the girls’ American debut, and unlike the other artistes trying to hit into the American market, he did not work with other American artistes for the girls’ debut.

And it is said that the WonderGirls will release their American official debut album in September-October. The album will have songs written and composed by Jonas Brothers. The girls will also work with the Jonas Brothers to come up with a electronic house number.

Bo Bice and wife expecting third child

There will be two American Idol debuts to look forward to in January – the premiere of Season 9 and a new arrival from alum Bo Bice!

The season four contestant announced wife Caroline's pregnancy on Friday evening at a fan club gathering in Nashville.

"American Idol has a new winner each year – seems things are the same in our house," Bice, 33, tells PEOPLE. "Can't wait to introduce our new little 'Idol' to the world January 31st!"

The latest addition will be the third child for Bice and his wife, who are also parents to sons Caleb James, 9 months, and Aidan Michael, 3 ½. The couple have been married four years.

On tour throughout the summer, the rocker will open for Lynyrd Skynyrd in August.



The gossip story of the day so far is that Paramount's upcoming "G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra" is so bad that the director may have been fired.

It all began when a posting on Don Murphy's message board, now removed, claimed that a test screening of the upcoming action film scored the worst marks in the studio's history. As a result Paramount exec Brad Weston had the film's director Stephen Sommers ("The Mummy," "Van Helsing") fired and locked out of the editing room.

Stuart Baird, a renowned "fixer" editor was brought it to try to see if it could be made releasable, while producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was told "his services were no longer needed on the film either". When word of the firing started to get around, Sommers "was summoned back to the editing room but only to save appearances, Baird is still editing the movie with studio input."

Real `Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' gravely ill
By GREGORY KATZ – The Associated Press - 1 day ago

LONDON (AP) — They were childhood chums. Then they drifted apart, lost touch completely, and only renewed their friendship decades later, when illness struck.

Not so unusual, really.

Except she is Lucy Vodden — the girl who was the inspiration for the Beatles' 1967 psychedelic classic "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" — and he is Julian Lennon, the musician son of John Lennon.

Miller still upset about breakup w/ Jude Law

Sienna Miller has reportedly admitted she is still hurting from her break-up with Jude Law.

The actress has revealed that her separation from Law was made more painful due to the publicity the relationship attained in its final days.

The former couple, who became engaged in 2004, were put under strain when allegations surfaced that Law was having an affair with his children's nanny in 2005.

Miller has said that Law's public apology and subsequent split from the actor was a "moment" in her life she would have liked to happen in private.

Miller told Vogue: "That was a very pivotal time in my life, and I’m happy saying that. It’s a private moment when you get your heart broken for the first time, and that was the absolute antithesis of private. It couldn’t have been more public! I had people on the street being like, 'Hang in there, love!', and all you want to do is crawl into a cave and weep for a week.

"It's dangerous to bring this up. I talked about him in an interview not long ago, saying that I still love him, and he was like, 'Please stop talking about it'."

Ben Harper is a stand-up guy!

A gift with strings attached

By Lynn Saxberg, The Ottawa Citizen

American roots-rocker Ben Harper talked about the usual stuff during the first part of my phone interview with him last month. We chatted about his new band, Relentless7, their new album, White Lies for Dark Times, and what's coming up for the summer. He's on tour, headlining the main stage at Bluesfest on July 9.

But I changed the subject a bit because I wanted to hear more about his musical development. His family has owned a music store in California for more than 50 years, and I was curious to know if he'd taken formal music lessons. He did, he told me, but quit every time. Most of his musical education came from hanging around the store.

David Letterman To Be Canned?!?!???!?

Fire David Letterman? Website and Politician Call on CBS to Fire David Letterman

Craig Ferguson jokingly declared himself the "King of Late Night" Friday night and the Scot comedian just might become just that if the Fire David Letterman crusade catches hold and produces the result it demands. But Letterman is the leader in late night television, according to the latest rankings, possibly due to unfamiliarity with the new host of the "Tonight Show," Conan O'Brien, and the controversy over the Sarah Palin jokes that inspired pundits, politicians, and average citizens to call upon CBS to fire David Letterman.

FireDavidLetterman.com has been set up to hold David Letterman "accountable for his disgraceful statements," according to the site's Mission Statement. The site includes a sample protest/boycott letter and a list of "Late Show with David Letterman" advertising sponsors' to which one can write. The site also calls upon the outraged to write, e-mail, or call their local CBS affiliate or local sponsor of the show to let them know they disapprove or will boycott their station/product until David Letterman's show is removed from the station's lineup. The site even lists six ways to make FireDavidLetterman.com viral.

But under the title "Fire David Letterman" is the announcement of a rally to be held on Tuesday, June 16, at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City (where "Late Show with David Letterman") is recorded.

David Letterman seems to have touched a nerve with his inappropriate joke told Monday night. Not one to ever let a Sarah Palin moment go un-joked about, Letterman included in his Top 10 List that night ("Top Ten Highlights of Sarah Palin's Trip to New York") that Palin had went to Bloomingdale's to "update her 'slutty flight attendant' look." After some criticism leveled for the sexist joke, most detractors centered on the 'awkward' joke where he said that Sarah Palin's daughter had been "knocked up" by Alex Rodriguez (New York Yankees baseball player) in the seventh inning.

Want Okey Gokey's Glasses?

Danny Gokey Eyeglasses as worn by Danny Gokey on American Idol. Designer eyeglasses include brands such as Armani, Gucci, Dolce Gabbana and much more. Percentage of all the proceeds on sales of Danny Gokey Eyeglasses go to support Danny Gokey’s charity - Sophia’s Heart Foundation.

Typically, an Idol would have to wait until his contract with 19 ended after the tour to go ahead with a private venture like this, but maybe they gave their blessing with 10% of the proceeds going to the Sophia’s Heart Foundation, the charity Danny started in memory of his wife…

Danny has lots of glasses, but he sure doesn’t mix it up style wise. It kind of limits the line. Good luck to him. If he doesn’t get a recording contract, maybe he can turn into an eyeglass mogul

I guess he's got to make money somehow

Aubrey O'Day Defended by NOH8 Founders

The cofounders of NOH8 tell Usmagazine.com exclusively reports that Aubrey O'Day was a diva while shooting their No H8TE ad campaign are wrong.

"We are happy and excited to have Aubrey O'Day apart of the NOH8Campaign," cofounders Adam Bouska and Jeff Parhsley tell Us in a statement.

A gossip site reported the former Danity Kane singer demanded car service and stiffed the driver after, but NOH8 says:

"It is unfortunate that while doing something for the greater good someone found pleasure in trying to tear it down. Aubrey believes in marriage equality which is exactly what this campaign is about. We had a great time shooting her and we can't wait to release the PSA next week. Aubrey O'Day and the NOH8 Campaign will continue to work together in the fight against hate and discrimination."

The campaign -- which attracts attention to the California legislation that bans same-sex marriage -- is also supported by Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, Pete Wentz, Emmy Rossum and Lance Bass.

Morgan Freeman, Ruler of the Free World

The first shot of Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela from the upcoming Clint Eastwood-directed Invictus has surfaced online. You can check out the full sized photos of Freeman, Eastwood and Matt Damon below.

The project, previously titled The Human Factor, sees Damon as rugby star Francois Pienaar, who created, along with Nelson Mandela (Freeman), an event that gave whites and blacks in South Africa a common cause to rally around as the country was trying to heal from the wounds of apartheid.

Mandela, freed from 27 years in prison and elected president, decided to get behind South Africa's Springboks team when the country was selected as host country for the 1985 Rugby World Cup. The Springboks had been banned from international competition because of the country's apartheid practices.

The majority of blacks viewed the team as a symbol of exclusion, but they rooted along with white countrymen as the Springboks won in overtime against New Zealand to capture the Cup.

The name Invictus refers to a poem by William Earnest Henley that was often recited by Mandela.

Warner Brothers is planning a december release for the film.

Hundreds Attend L.A. Funeral for David Carradine

Hundreds of people, including friends, family and former co-stars, attended a funeral service for actor David Carradine Saturday.

The service was held indoors at the Hall of Liberty at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, the cemetery adjacent to Griffith Park. The service was invitation only, and security guards stood outside the hall.

The funeral, attended by more than 400 people, lasted for more than two hours. Among the guests were numerous actors, including Michael Madsen, Jane Seymour, Tom Selleck, Frances Fisher, Daryl Hannah, Lucy Liu, Ali Larter, Edward James Olmos, Rob Schneider and James Cromwell.

Madsen and Liu both starred alongside Carradine in the "Kill Bill" movies.

Carradine's family avoided the small group of reporters that gathered outside.

His burial was private.

Last week, Carradine, 72, was found hanging in a Bangkok hotel room. The investigation into his death is ongoing.

A martial arts practitioner himself, Carradine was best known for the U.S. TV series "Kung Fu," which aired from 1972-75. He played Kwai Chang Caine, an orphan who was raised by Shaolin monks and fled China for the American West after killing the emperor's nephew in retaliation for the murder of his kung fu master.

Carradine also appeared in more than 100 feature films with such directors as Martin Scorsese, Ingmar Bergman and Hal Ashby. He returned to the top in recent years as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's two-part saga "Kill Bill."

Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

Talk about a waterworks show!

Channeling his inner water fountain, Marilyn Manson performed at day two of the Download Festival at Donington Park in Castle Donington, England yesterday (June 13).

From the deterioration of our ethical norms to the degradation of faith, the shock rocker has been blamed for a slew of social issues, but he insists that it’s his association with the Columbine massacre that has significantly damaged his career.

“Blaming me for [Columbine] was ridiculous,” he tells Kerrang magazine. “It’s a lack of responsibility from everyone. If you want to blame something, well, I went to a Christian school. That’s why I write what I write. Shall we blame the Christians? I essentially lost everything because of Columbine but, if it happened now, it just wouldn’t have the same impact. There has to be that first person who takes the arrows in the back and I guess that was me.”

Manson was also linked to the massacre at Virginia Tech in 2007, when mass murderer Asa Coon was found to be wearing a t-shirt depicting his face. “If there was a Grammy Award for death toll, it would be mine. I don’t think anyone has been blamed for as much violence as me,” he adds.

Rox's Torrealba reunited with son after abduction

DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies catcher Yorvit Torrealba felt the fear cut through him. His 11-year-old son was in the hands of kidnappers and he thought the boy was going to die.

Torrealba sat by the phone in Venezuela, listening to his wife negotiate with the kidnappers. It was thought best that Torrealba not do the talking.

"It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy," Yorvit Torrealba said after his son was kidnapped.

"It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy," he said. "For three days I couldn't sleep, I couldn't drink water. I felt like my hands were tied and I couldn't do anything."

Torrealba spoke of his ordeal Sunday, the first time he has done so since Yorvit Eduardo was released by his abductors. Now, nearly two weeks later, his son is fine and with him in Denver.

"Overall, he's happy, he's good," Torrealba said before the Rockies played Seattle. "When we were in Miami I took him to the park, to the mall just to have a normal life again. He's doing really good."

His son saw a doctor twice while in Miami.

"The first time he saw the doctor, all he talked about was what happened," Torrealba said. "The second time, he was talking about stuff we were doing. He's doing better. He's making progress."

Torrealba's son will be at Coors Field on Tuesday when the Rockies open a three-game series against Tampa Bay. He said he and his wife will stay in the U.S.

"That's SIR Christopher Lee, tyvm."

Saruman the White may not be the lord of the rings, but he is now a knight of the empire, thanks to Queen Elizabeth II.

Veteran actor Christopher Lee, who played the jewelry-craving schemer in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, was bestowed with a knighthood Saturday as part of the queen's birthday honors list, recognized for his contributions to the dramatic arts.

All told, the 87-year-old thespian has amassed more than 250 film and television credits.

Lee is no stranger to titles of nobility, at least on the big screen. Aside from playing the evil wizard who goes wand to wand with Ian McKellen's Gandalf, Lee is best known for playing Count Dooku in the Star Wars prequels and Count Dracula in Britain's classic Hammer horror films.

Two other well-known actors made the list, albeit further down the title rank: X-Men star and Tony Award winner Alan Cumming was named an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) and Pirates of the Caribbean star and Tony winner Jonathan Pryce was named a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire).


about damn time, too! and for people who don't understand british honorary titles, being knighted means christopher can call himself "sir christopher lee" while alan and jonathan just have honorary titles after their surname (like PhD if you will)

Mos Def Thinks Jay-Z Should Defend His 'Greatest Rapper Alive' Title
He proposes the ultimate MC battle, in which his team of five would go up against Jay, Kanye West and others.

By Steven Roberts
When Mos Def visited Angie Martinez's New York radio show Tuesday to promote his new album, The Ecstatic, neither had any idea that would be promoting the most spectacular MC battle ever.

In March, a video hit YouTube that featured Mos challenging Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and others to a battle. Martinez asked him about the video. Mos admitted it was a candid moment in front of friends.

"I don't have to address it, but what I said, I will stand by," Mos said, adding that his comments were in regards to an article he saw (ours?) naming Jay-Z the greatest MC alive. "Friend or foe, I love you all, but I'm saying if you saying that you're better than Slick Rick, who is still very alive and well, you saying that you're better than Rakim, you saying you're better than Black Thought — and the people making that claim have never been in a position to have to defend that in an open forum."

"But isn't it all up to what you like?" Martinez asked.

"It is subjective, but people start coming out and making claims that you can't defend," Mos said.

He made an analogy to an automaker saying it has the best V8 engine. The automaker has to prove that against other automakers' engines, and a race would prove who is better.

"I just don't believe that claim, where any of these rappers are saying that they are the best alive," Mos Def said. "Really?!? Well, you can easily put that to the test."

I thought it would be a good opportunity to practice taking pictures and we were in the pit, right in front of them so it made it taking pictures a lot easier. There were a LOT of 13 to 15 year olds. I sort of felt old sitting there amidst all of them.
OH, and Trace is ugly. I thought people were exaggerating but he really is ugly. haha. He even took his shirt off and wiped this towel all over his body and under his pits and he threw it to the audience. What is up with that? He also kept spitting on stage. Kind of disgusting. Although Blake and Anthony were kind of cute. Especially when the drummer said stuff about how the Philippines is home and shit. It's pretty unfortunate that the cutes ones had to be the ones at the back. Oh and Blake threw me a pick. That was pretty cool but I have no idea what to do with it. lol.

JoJo News - Album, New Sound, and 25 To Life

JoJo gives us a little more information about her upcoming third studio album, what her new sound will be like, and what the deal is with her rumoured new single "25 To Life".

New Album Info:
"My new album just represents where I am in my life as an 18-year-old woman at a crossroads" reveals JoJo "I'm really excited to let everyone hear some new material in a few months."

"We'll hear the new single in a few months, with the album hopefully by the fourth quarter this year"

New Sound:
And will her new album sound like her two previous smash hits "Leave (Get Out)" and "Too Little, Too Late"?

"Um, I don't think so. I've always felt like I've tried to bring an element of soul to my music, even with my first and second album, but now I'm living on my own, I'm out in the world. I've written this whole album and co-written it and really taken the reigns so in that sense it's totally different because I didn't get the chance to do that with my first two albums."

"I'm just a lover of music and that's really represented on this [new album] so it is a bit of a departure."

25 To Life:
JoJo also took to her
MySpace page to address the rumours surrounding her new song "25 To Life", which Love B Scott claimed was the lead single from her album.

"It is a bit frustrating that material is coming out that is NOT intended to be a first single or even a representation of the album. This is one of the ONLY records that I did not write or co-write. I'm happy that you guys are responding postively to the new music, yet just a bit annoyed that its not official."

Fallen Princesses: Disney Just Got Real

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

These works place Fairy Tale characters in modern day scenarios. In all of the images the Princess is placed in an environment that articulates her conflict. The '...happily ever after' is replaced with a realistic outcome and addresses current issues.

The project was inspired by my observation of three-year-old girls, who were developing an interest in Disney's Fairy tales. As a new mother I have been able to get a close up look at the phenomenon of young girls fascinated with Princesses and their desire to dress up like them. The Disney versions almost always have sad beginning, with an overbearing female villain, and the end is predictably a happy one. The Prince usually saves the day and makes the victimized young beauty into a Princess.

As a young girl, growing up abroad, I was not exposed to Fairy tales. These new discoveries lead to my fascination with the origins of Fairy tales. I explored the original brothers Grimm's stories and found that they have very dark and sometimes gruesome aspects, many of which were changed by Disney. I began to imagine Disney's perfect Princesses juxtaposed with real issues that were affecting women around me, such as illness, addiction and self-image issues.

There are 2 more to be shot for this series which is going on exhibit on Oct. 15/09.

Vardalos Fires Off At 'Fat-ist' Hollywood

James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie back for Wanted 2

Russian newsite RIA Novosti had a chance to talk to that country's biggest filmmaker Timur Bekmabetov recently, and he told them that he has started preparations on making the sequel to the 2008 summer hit Wanted and that they've found a way to bring Angelina Jolie's character back.

Talking about the tentatively-titled Wanted 2, Bekmambetov told them, "In July we will start preparation for the film. I think in the late autumn or winter shooting will be performed. The shooting will take place in America, India and Russia."

Besides Jolie's character, Fox, Bekmambetov hopes to bring back the character played by Kostya Khabenskiy, who also starred in Bekmambetov's breakout films Night Watch and Day Watch, as well as introducing new characters. The sequel reportedly has a $150 million budget, which is the biggest Hollywood production made by a Russian filmmaker, and Bekmambetov will once again have Russian crew involved in all aspects of production.

Hannah Montana ending in 2010

“Hannah Montana” is coming to an end.

The Disney Channel series starring Miley Cyrus is expected to wrap up a four season run next year, according to the 16-year-old’s dad and co-star, Billy Ray Cyrus.

In an interview for Access Hollywood and “The Billy Bush Show,” Cyrus said the cast, which just wrapped up shooting season 3, will carry on for one more run of shows at Miley’s request.

“Quite frankly, I give a lot of credit to Miley for taking it to another year,” Cyrus said. “She didn’t want it to just end with whatever was the last episode we did. She wanted it to build to where there’s a moral to the story, to where it doesn’t just end and go away and that’s it. She wanted there to be an official ending to ‘Hannah Montana.’”

Cyrus said they will film the final 11 half-hour long episodes and a one-hour long season finale, all expected to screen in 2010.

“We’ll start (shooting) season 4 sometime around the end of January,” Billy Ray said. “We have to be done by the first week of June in the summer of next year.”

''You better get that straight!'' Asner adds, slyly slipping into the crabby tone he perfected as Grant, the role that won him five of his seven Emmys, first on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and later in the spinoff Lou Grant.

Asner does not want to limit himself, because Hollywood has done that for him throughout the years. He says in only one year during his more-than-half century career has he landed as much work as he wanted, when he was working on Moore's sitcom and shot 1976's Rich Man, Poor Man miniseries that also won him an Emmy.

1. This former B list television actress was on a hit initial show and now has said goodbye to that and has dropped to a quick C. Anyway, she is known for her love of meth and at a wrap party at the end of the season, our actress decided that she was going to drive her B- list aging comic co-star’s SUV through a garage door at the party. A closed garage door. After she had crashed through the door and dented the wall of the kitchen someone asked her why she had done it, and she said just because it was something she had always wanted to do. Nice. CDAN

2. Which female fans of a highly desired actor are wasting their time? No, he’s not gay, he’s actually celibate but it hasn’t been leaked for fear of running his sexy screen god image. NWMagazine

3. This A list actress who used to be the highest paid actress in Hollywood donated her entire paycheck from a recent movie to four different charities. It was the largest donation any of the four charities had ever received. CDAN

4. Which world-class tennis player should perhaps lay off the HGH (Human Growth Hormones) if he wants to stop his spate of injuries?
