Jon does another interview...and doesn't mention the Jews even once!



Pick up any tabloid magazine or turn on any entertainment show, and you're bound to see something on Jon and Kate Gosselin's bitter and public divorce. While both have been subject to much criticism, Jon has been the focus of the majority of negative publicity since their split. PopEater got the opportunity to talk with Jon so he could clear up any misconceptions, and he also spoke very candidly about Kate, his disdain for TLC, his love for his girlfriend Hailey Glassman and how he might go on 'The View.'

I still hate you Jon.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Two-time Emmy® winner Alec Baldwin ( 30 Rock ) is returning for a second season as co-host of The Essentials on Turner Classic Movies ( TCM ). In his first season, Baldwin displayed a deep knowledge of classic films. Baldwin and TCM host Robert Osborne will return in 2010 with a new slate of "must see" movies each week.

The Essentials airs Saturdays at 8 p.m. ( ET ). The 10th season will kick off in March 2010 with Elia Kazan's 1951 version of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, starring Marlon Brando and Oscar® winners Vivien Leigh, Kim Hunter and Karl Malden. The season will feature four Best Picture Oscar winners, including The Best Years of Our Lives ( 1946 ), Gigi ( 1958 ), Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and The Sting (1973 ), as well as Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winner Black Orpheus ( 1959 ).

For the first time, The Essentials will include special late-night installments, with the seminal 1970s films Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Serpico (1973).

Other titles for 2010 include the groundbreaking Bonnie and Clyde ( 1967 ) and The Graduate ( 1967 ); the delightful Ealing comedy Kind Hearts and Coronets ( 1949 ), with Alec Guinness in eight different roles; and the work of several top-name directors, such as Alfred Hitchcock ( Strangers on a Train – 1951 ), Frank Capra ( Meet John Doe – 1941 ), John Ford ( My Darling Clementine – 1946 ), Stanley Kramer ( Judgment at Nuremberg – 1961 ) and George Cukor (the newly restored A Star Is Born – 1954). The complete schedule for next year's installments of The Essentials will be announced later.

I think Alec does a great job on The Essentials, so I'm happy to hear this. He seems so passionate about film so he's a great fit. I'm also very happy about two of the Essential movies for this upcoming year featuring you-know-whoooo.

Kings of Leon clash over royalties

Rockers Kings Of Leon are at war over royalty payments - bassist Jared Followill has accused his brother Caleb of attempting to cash in on the band's next album.

Jared Followill 1 Pictures, Images and Photos

The Sex On Fire hitmakers scored a massive international hit with their last record, Only By The Night, which became one of the highest-selling albums of 2008.

But the success has fuelled the notoriously volatile relationship between the family band, and Jared Followill admits their latest fight is over song-writing credits for their upcoming fifth album.

He says, "We started seriously writing the songs when we got back home from tour. I got a call from Caleb going, 'I'm sitting here writing the next album by myself.' And we're like, 'Oh no, you're not!'

"We ended up going to his house so that when the record comes out he can't go, 'Dude, I'm getting 70 per cent of this s**t.'"

While guitarist Matthew adds, "We basically go to his house for the royalties."

Jared admits he has always found it difficult working with his brother, especially when they first formed the band: "Caleb was really weird when we first started. Everything that I thought was charming about us, he wanted us to lie about.

"For me, it's hard even having an opinion on this band. If I wasn't involved, I can't imagine liking us a lot, just because I only control 25 per cent of it. In every song there's something I wish I could change. Each one of us are like that, though."



Moses To Get The 300/Braveheart Treatment?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Variety reports that 20th Century Fox will develop a retelling of the story of Moses, from his near death as an infant to his adoption into the Egyptian royal family, his defiance of the Pharaoh and deliverance of the Hebrews from enslavement.

The script will be written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage, who recently completed a scripted retelling of Herman Melville's Moby Dick for director Timur Bekmambetov at Universal.

Moby Dick was pitched as a 300-like reimagining of the Melville story as a visually stunning action piece, and the story of Moses is conceived similarly.

The trade adds that the goal is to give a Braveheart feel to a story most famously captured in Cecil B. DeMille's 1956 film The Ten Commandments. Peter Chernin will produce with Dylan Clark.



Jon Gosselin turns tables on Kate Gosselin with charges of his own

The feud between Jon and Kate Gosselin continues. 

America's favorite dad recently turned the tables on Kate with allegations of improperly withdrawing money and violating a court order, reports RadarOnline.com. Last week, his estranged wife charged him with secretly emptying their bank account, leaving her with only $1,000. 

Jon and his lawyer, Mark Heller, recently filed court papers accusing Kate of the same financial misconduct while demanding a written explanation of $1 million that Kate removed from their accounts. 

In the newly released court papers, Jon admits to taking funds out from their joint money market account. While Kate accused her husband of withdrawing $230,000 from their joint account, Jon's claim states that Kate took out more than $60,000 from the same fund between July 17 and Sept. 29.

The shocking court papers also reveal that Kate should be held in contempt of court since she has not provided a detailed report of all money she spent from June 22 through July 6, despite court rules. In addition, Kate still hasn't given Jon written permission required for him to access four of their bank accounts online. 

Jon and his law team also want Kate to disclose her lawyer fees since she demanded the same. Talk about getting even. 


Oh dear, what a mess.

Scarlett Johansson Wishes She Was Judy Garland

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Scarlett Johansson released two albums, in which she sings no less (as if a pretty girl would play the guitar), and people didn’t hate them as much as you’d expect. So blame those people when Scarlett Johansson plays Judy Garland, because now she’s convinced she’s a vocalist.

Talking to Spinner Scarlett revealed that she’s always wanted to do musicals and as a youngster taking vocal lessons, she always dreamed of being Judy Garland.

The reason you should care is that ScarJo may now be looking for a musical to do. She’s excited that musicals are making a comeback in theaters and says of her dream to sing on film, “It's nice that I maybe have a chance to do it.” That doesn’t mean she’ll play Judy Garland, but it doesn’t sound like she’d turn it down either. Luckily, she’s probably too late. Back in March we heard that The Weinstein Company was making a Judy Garland biopic with Anne Hathaway as Garland. Not only does Anne sort of look like Judy, unlike Scarlett she’s capable of pulling off a fair approximation of Garland’s amazing voice.

Anne’s a good Judy Garland backup plan but if anyone ever gets serious about making her life into a movie, then without a doubt, Zooey Deschanel should really already have this part locked up. Come on, haven’t you seen Elf? Give Scarlett something else to sing about. She’s pretty far down on the “right to play Judy Garland” starlet list.

No one will ever come remotely close to the amazingness that is Judy Garland and to all the wannabes in Hollywood;

Robert Pattinson Happy To Surrender 'New Moon' Spotlight To Taylor Lautner

Robert Pattinson is ready to let Taylor Lautner have all the attention for a while.

Pattinson, who never really seems all that comfortable with the adoration he gets from fans and the media for his role in the "Twilight" movies, is ready to sit back and let someone else deal with the screaming girls. And thanks to his scaled-back role in "New Moon" and Lautner's beefed-up one, that shouldn't be too hard to accomplish.

"I'm not the lead in the second film. Taylor is," he told the Sydney Morning Herald. "I appear in Bella's dreams. So I'm in it but the focus is not on me. I just have significant moments at the beginning ... and the end. So I'm more of a supporting role in this one, which is why I felt so free. I didn't have to deal with any of the bullsh-- of the first one. I don't have to hold the movie or worry about the fans. I think I did it better without all those pressures."

Singer Ready For More X-Men

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Bryan Singer said Sunday he's interested in making another "X-Men" movie and has discussed the possibility with 20th Century Fox, according to The Associated Press.

"I'm still looking to possibly returning to the 'X-Men' franchise. I've been talking to Fox about it," the X-Men and X2: X-Men United director said at South Korea's Pusan International Film Festival. "I love Hugh Jackman. I love the cast."

Singer said the "X-Men" series is about tolerance and social structures. He said he likes to "trick audiences into thinking they're seeing fireworks, but they're learning about themselves and listening to what I have to say."

"The excitement about working in science fiction and fantasy is — the stories, if they are good, are about the human condition," he added.

30 Seconds To Mars Shutting Down Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood

In an attempt to break a world record or two and to capture images for their upcoming video for their new single, "Kings and Queens," 30 Seconds To Mars will be shutting down the world-famous Santa Monica Pier on the evening of October 12th. Additionally, they'll also be taking over Hollywood and Highland. What do they need from you to help them reach this insane accomplishment? Your bicycle!

For the past 12+ hours, I've been hanging out with 30 Seconds To Mars and a huge group of my fellow urban cyclists from all over Los Angeles to help the band shoot their music video "Kings and Queens." (I use "music video" lightly; it's much more like a short film.) Over the course of 12 hours, all overnight, cyclists took over the Sixth Street Bridge, Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, and stormed the Second and Third Street tunnels under Bunker Hill.

Jared Leto, frontman for 30STM, was ecstatic about the turn-out for the first day of the shoot after the night's events were completed. "Thanks so much to all the riders that came out tonight," he said. "It was unforgettable and amazing and we are so thankful to you all!" But if you live near LA and have a bicycle, you haven't missed out on the fun yet.

Tonight, the band will be taking over both the Santa Monica Pier and Hollywood and Highland. They're going to try to assemble the most people on bicycles on the pier and create the largest "circle of death" possible at Hollywood and Highland.

If you live and Los Angeles and would love to be a part of history (and a 30 Seconds To Mars video!), all you have to do is show up at Ocean and Colorado in Santa Monica at 4PM. You get that?

TODAY, OCT 12th, 4PM

And bring a bike! I had a blast riding around downtown LA with streets empty and with friends I hadn't seen in months. You're not going to want to miss this. Grab some friends, hop on your bikes, and get down to the ocean tonight!

Collapse )

Source: buzznet and ONTD_30STM

All of you LA ONTDers, you should totally try and see if you can go to this! Seems like it's going to be interesting... btw, if you plan on going the band has said that the more excentric you look, the better are your chances to be featured in the video... just a heads up ;)

Ryan Phillippe out with Abbie and his kids in Brentwood

Ryan Phillippe happily played the role of family man and he and girlfriend Abbie Cornish took his kids Ava and Deacon to a Halloween party in Brentwood, CA yesterday (October 11).

While the hunky actor and his lady love watched on while snacking on some cotton candy, young Ava and Deacon could be seen taking turns on a rented trampoline.

Meanwhile, though it’s usually Ryan whose getting the big screen praise, critics are continuing to buzz about Abbie’s role of obsessive Franny Brawne in the much-taked-about period flick Bright Star.

Says one critic: “The spectrum of emotion she portrays is impressive. At the end of the film, as she grips the banister, the audience realizes the intense pain of unrealized love through her anguished moans.”

Adds another: ” It’s unlikely that Bright Star will generate such generous notice from the academy, but Campion could be nominated anew for screenplay and Cornish for best actress.”

Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Suri: Boston Trio

Back out for another family romp, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes took daughter Suri for a walk in Boston, Massachusetts on Sunday (October 11).
Like many little girls, Suri Cruise likes to dress up as her mother.
Enjoying a Sunday afternoon stroll with parents Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise yesterday, the three-year-old played 'grown-up' as she walked along in high heels while 'sipping' a cup of coffee.

But while her mother was carrying the real thing, Suri was just carrying an empty Starbucks cup so she could make-believe.

NBC's fail multiplies...

'Glee' Cast Dumped from Macy's Parade

The hit FOX show "Glee" is chorus non grata at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ... and we've learned NBC is behind it all.

The network that can't produce a hit to save its life -- at least this year -- has banned the cast of "Glee" from appearing at the Parade that airs on NBC.

Sources tell us Macy's invited the "Glee" cast -- the deal was all but signed -- but when rival NBC found out, they told the department store to pull the plug.

A rep for FOX declined to comment. NBC could not be reached. Macy's didn't get back to us.



Where the Wild Things Are gives hope to other unfilmable books

This weekend, "Where the Wild Things Are" finally comes to the big screen after being considered "unfilmable" for decades. But what, exactly, does that word even mean? And with this year's adaptations of "Wild Things" and "Watchmen," does it even still apply?

Below is a list of the books that have given Hollywood headaches for decades. Some have been filmed, some currently linger in development hell, and others will never be touched by any sensible filmmaker. Read on, and ask yourself the two questions that always seem to come up with such projects: "Why not?" or "Why bother?"

The wait is over ... media icon and weight loss guru Oprah Winfrey just announced her latest breakthrough diet -- corn dogs smothered in mustard.

Oprah and BFF Gayle King took a road trip to the Texas State Fair in Dallas yesterday to tape a special show -- which will air later this fall -- and based on the pictures we got of Oprah in a cowboy hat chowing down on a corn dog, she completely gave up on the traditional low-fat approach to dieting -- at least temporarily.

Our fair source claims Oprah also had herself a little of the fair's famous deep fried butter. No joke ... but so far, no confirmation on the battered butter from O's peeps.

Still, that's the kind of diet we can wrap our arms around.

UPDATE: It's confirmed -- Oprah ate the fried butter! In fact, she called it "the best treat of the fair."

hugh jackman-rpattz sing off

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Twilight star Rob is set to star in Unbound Captives with the X Men Origins: Wolverine star and revealed they bonded by seeing who could perform the best renditions of classic tracks by Abba.

Robert said: “We met up in Japan and we went karaoke singing. We were singing Abba songs, it was pretty funny. It was sort of an Abba song sing-off, you know, last man standing.

“I think he won, only because he can drink more than me and still sing in tune. He’s a cool guy and I’m really looking forward to that film.”

Robert has previously shown his musical side by recording songs for the Twilight soundtrack and despite also featuring in the music for sequel Twilight Saga: New Moon says he felt like “a t****r” when the movie came out.

He told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: “When the first film came out I felt like a complete t****r. It looked like I was trying to be cool or something, like Eminem.

“You know, be in a movie and then do a song for the soundtrack. But I didn’t look cool, I just looked ridiculous.”

Francis Ford Coppola Sees Cinema World Falling Apart

“The cinema as we know it is falling apart,” says Francis Ford Coppola.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

“It’s a period of incredible change,” says the director of “The Godfather” and “Apocalypse Now.” “We used to think of six, seven big film companies. Every one of them is under great stress now. Probably two or three will go out of business and the others will just make certain kind of films like ‘Harry Potter’ -- basically trying to make ‘Star Wars’ over and over again, because it’s a business.”

Coppola, 70, sporting a dark suit, is being interviewed in the Lebanese capital Beirut, where his latest movie “Tetro” opened the Beirut Film Festival after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this year.

“Cinema is losing the public’s interest,” says Coppola, “because there is so much it has to compete with to get people’s time.”

The profusion of leisure activities; the availability of movies on copied DVD and on the Internet; and news becoming entertainment are reshaping the industry, he says. Companies have combined businesses as customers turn to cheap downloads rather than visit shops or movie theaters.

“I think the cinema is going to live off into something more related to a live performance in which the filmmaker is there, like the conductor of an opera used to be,” Coppola says. “Cinema can be interactive, every night it can be a little different.”

Sitting on a red velvet sofa, surrounded by stone statues of Greek figures in the lobby of the Albergo hotel, Coppola says he did not direct for a decade until 2007 when “Youth Without Youth” was released: He spent that period working on abortive projects and readjusting to changes in the film industry.

Wines, Hotels

The director, who aside from his Californian winery has also been active in the publishing and hotel business, does not elaborate on future projects or say whether he plans to experiment in other industries.

“I don’t make a living anymore, I don’t have a job, I’m not trying to have a career, I’m not trying to be rich, I’m just trying to learn,” he says.

“Tetro”, which is based on an original screenplay, tells the story of a young man of Italian descent who sets off to Buenos Aires to reconnect with his long-lost older brother.

“I always hoped, even when I was younger, to do films that were original screenplays and more personal. My career changed a lot when I made ‘The Godfather’ because it became so successful,” Coppola says.

While the Godfather films scooped Oscars, he still has challenges in getting sponsors for some projects. He financed “Tetro” with revenue from his vineyard in California.

“Now, at this age, I’m doing what I wanted to do when I was 22,” Coppola says.

Civil War

Coppola moves on to discuss Lebanon: “Beirut is the symbol of a sophisticated cosmopolitan city damaged by civil war and political differences but it’s very regenerative.”

The filmmaker also tells of his interest in Middle-East history and the “relation between east and west.” He is intrigued about the conflict between Iran’s ruling elites after the June’s re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad which led to days of mass protests.



Katherine Jackson Won't Inherit MJ's Estate

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

TMZ has learned Michael Jackson intended to provide for his mother during her lifetime, but once she dies her share of the estate will go directly to MJ's three kids.

As we first reported, under the trust, 40% of Michael's estate goes to Katherine. The kids get 40% and the remaining 20% goes to charity. But we've learned ... Katherine Jackson will not get 40% outright.

The trustees -- John Branca and John McClain -- decide what money should go to the beneficiaries. Katherine has no voice in those decisions. Whatever remains in Katherine's trust when she dies goes directly to the children.

Bottom line -- Katherine will get a healthy stipend for the rest of her life ... now she's getting a hefty allowance and when the trust kicks in she'll probably get more. But she will not inherit 40% of her son's estate.


GOOD. The rest of the Jackson family was probably salivating over that money.

Carnie Wilson Kissed A Girl And Said "Ew! That's Gross!"

There's a Carnie Wilson interview that just went up at Out.com. Apparently she's now hosting The Newlywed Game and they're letting gay couples on the show now.

At the beginning of the interview she's all "I love gays!"

Out: I read that you were instrumental in finally getting gay couples on The Newlywed Game.
Carnie Wilson: Last year when we had our first season with me hosting, I asked, “Why don’t we have gay couples on the show?” And the network looked at me and said, “Uh, we’re not really sure.” It just was never really even discussed. Maybe I sparked something -- I hope that I did -- but I think that it couldn’t have happened soon enough. It’s the real world, it’s the real dealm and it really comes down to one thing and that’s love. That’s what this is about: love is love.

BUT THEN -- the interviewer asks her about a line on her Wikipedia page about having a "lesbian experience" when she was a teenager and she shows how she really feels about gays:

I was trolling your Wikipedia page -- which I know can be a dubious way to find out information about someone -- and there’s an entry stating that you had “publicly acknowledged a lesbian experience as a teen.”
I didn’t have a lesbian experience. Things just get so twisted and weird.

That’s why I thought I’d ask -- because I’d never heard that before.
I think that’s just -- not appropriate. It’s not the case. My girlfriend gave me a kiss on the mouth and I was like “Ew! That’s gross!” And that was my lesbian experience. So if you want to call that a lesbian experience, then fine. I don’t.

Like -- did she forget who she was talking to? Out is a gay magazine -- you'd think she'd try to at least say something like "She kissed me and nothing happened. Just wasn't my cup of tea. So I don't consider myself a lesbian." Even if she thought "Ew! That's Gross" when she was a teenager -- just a really dumb thing to say.

karl lagerfeld calls us fat

Karl Lagerfeld says only 'fat mummies' object to thin models
German designer claims objections to 'size-zero' models are driven by overweight women

A model wears a Karl Lagerfeld creation for Chanel at Paris Fashion Week.

Karl Lagerfeld, the eccentric German fashion tsar, has waded into the debate about size-zero models by saying that people want to look at "skinny models" and classing those who complain as "fat mummies".

Lagerfeld, 71, was reacting to the magazine Brigitte's announcement last week that it will in future use "ordinary, realistic" women rather than professional models in its photo shoots. He said the decision by Germany's most popular women's magazine was "absurd" and driven by overweight women who did not like to be reminded of their weight issues.

RIP Brendan Mullen

Club promoter Brendan Mullen dies
Founded legendary punk club Masque


Brendan Mullen, the promoter-entrepreneur who founded Hollywood's legendary punk rock launching pad the Masque, died Monday in Los Angeles hospital after suffering a massive stroke.

A Scotsman by birth, Mullen emigrated from London to Los Angeles in 1973. He created the Masque -- a dank, soon graffiti-scarred 10,000-foot space at 1655 N. Cherokee, behind and beneath the Pussycat adult theater on Hollywood Boulevard -- in June 1977 as a low-rent rehearsal space for local musicians. (Mullen himself played drums in his own punk lounge act, the Satintones.)

It quickly morphed into the principal performance venue for the city's then-nascent punk scene, mounting its first show by the Skulls on Aug. 18, 1977. It served as a stage and a hangout for an honor roll of first-generation punk groups: the Germs, X, the Go-Go's, the Screamers, the Flesh Eaters, the Weirdos, the Alleycats, the Plugz, the Bags.

The freewheeling Masque, where the charming and oft-acerbic Mullen hosted the proceedings, was a magnet for the antipathy of local merchants and daily scrutiny by police, fire, and licensing officials, and was soon cited by city authorities for various licensing violations.

Closed and reopened more than once, it moved to another space on Santa Monica Boulevard before shuttering permanently in February 1979.

Mullen is seen in the abandoned Cherokee Avenue club in W.T. Morgan's 1986 documentary about X, "The Unheard Music."

From 1981-92, Mullen booked shows at the Sunset Boulevard bar Club Lingerie. His diverse shows included sets by talent ranging from veteran R&B, blues, and rock 'n' roll acts to hip-hoppers and avant garde rockers. He also mounted dates at the downtown Variety Arts Center in the late '80s, and stage managed some of the L.A. Weekly's music awards shows.

In recent years, Mullen prolifically chronicled the history of L.A. punk, and, not incidentally, his own role in the scene.

His books included "We Got the Neutron Bomb: The Untold Story of L.A. Punk" (2001, with Marc Spitz); "Lexicon Devil: The Fast Times and Short Life of Darby Crash and the Germs" (2002, with Don Bolles and Adam Parfrey); and the photo history "Live at the Masque: Nightmare in Punk Alley" (2007). He also authored the Jane's Addiction oral history "Whores" (2005).

Mullen is survived by his longtime companion Kateri Butler.

No Need To Worry For Now, Dollhouse Fans!

Fox: We will air all 13 'Dollhouse' episodes

"Dollhouse" fans can breathe easier: Fox will air all 13 episodes.

On the heels of impressive DVR data for the "Dollhouse" premiere, network executives say they will run each produced hour of the show's current order despite the Friday drama's modest overall ratings.

"We're going to run all the episodes," Fox scheduling chief Preston Beckman said. "We're not saying we're happy with those numbers, or accept them, but we don't have to overreact. During [November] sweeps we might have to jack up the numbers a little [with other programming], but we plan on completing the order for this show."

As for ordering additional episodes, or a third season, Fox says they will make that decision after the current run.

GLEE Tour in 2010?!

Attention Gleeks: you may be able to catch all your favorite Glee songs performed live next year. EW has learned that a Glee music tour is in the early discussion stage. It’s not surprising given that the series’ music has been exploding on iTunes and the first Glee soundtrack drops on Nov. 3. Back in July, Fox Broadcasting president Kevin Reilly hinted at the development to EW. “We’ve had a tremendous amount of enthusiasm from our music partners,” said Reilly. ”Certainly if these kids become stars in their own right, who knows? Live appearances. Albums. There’s lots of things that could happen.” While nothing is 100% confirmed yet, co-creator Ryan Murphy tells EW that the tour would most likely be scheduled around spring 2010, once shooting of the first season has ended.


Would you guys go to a Glee concert? IDK if I would... sounds almost like an AI show where all they sing are covers.

Liam whining about stuff... mainly about the way Noel dresses

Liam Gallagher: 'I'm gutted about Oasis' split'

He also takes a swipe at Noel Gallagher for dressing 'like Liz Hurley's son'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Liam Gallagher has spoken again about Oasis splitting up, admitting he's "gutted" the band have come to an end.

Last week, the singer said that "Oasis is no longer" , after Noel Gallagher quit the band in August, and has now told the Daily Mail that he still can't bear to to speak about the split in-depth.

"It's only just been a month and I have to sit down and work it out because as far as I'm concerned my comments would be on my musical headstone," Gallagher said.

He added: "But I'm gutted. I love being in Oasis. When I'm ready, you will hear my side of the story."

In the interview – which saw Gallagher speaking about his clothing label Pretty Green – he also takes a swipe at Noel Gallagher's fashion sense.

"He dresses like Liz Hurley's son," Gallagher said. "He's on the posh vibe. Loves a cardigan and all that. He had some of the Pretty Green gear when we were almost on speaking terms, but I don't think he's happy about it. A few of my mates were backstage wearing it and he was like 'Why are you wearing that?' And my mates were like 'Cos you bloody can't'. What does he know anyway? His fashion sense is massively overrated."

Gallagher went on to reveal that he has given up drugs in order to become a better father.

He said: "I've knocked all that [drug use] on the head since last November. I'll have a drink now and again. But not for the time being – I'm having a rest.

"You must remember, though, that I've caned it for 20 years and not just on the sauce but with all sorts. I've had a great time and now I'm having a break. It doesn't work with kids, man. You wake up the next day after a session and you're looking for bits of your kids' homework and football boots. You're all over the place – it's rubbish."

Beyoncé 'Wonder Woman' casting 'a hoax'

A report that Beyoncé was in talks to play Wonder Woman has proved to be false.

The Obsessed actress was alleged to have said during a press conference that she had multiple movie projects currently in the works, including Wonder Woman.

The 28-year-old was quoted as saying that she was to meet with the writers of GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Max Payne director John Moore in forthcoming months to discuss her participation in the comic book adaptation to film in mid-2010.

According to ComicBookMovie, the information came from a contributor who had reportedly posted the made-up story in order to impress his girlfriend. He has since been banned from the site, which has posted an apology regarding the matter.

Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt recently admitted that her dream role would be to portray Wonder Woman.


Maurice Sendak To Concerned Parents: Go To Hell!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If you're worried about taking your kids to see Where The Wild Things Are after reports of crying children having to leave screenings of the rough cut, halfway through, then Maurice Sendak has a message for you: "Go to hell."

A story in the Oct. 19 Newsweek contains this classic exchange:

What do you say to parents who think the Wild Things film may be too scary?

Sendak: I would tell them to go to hell. That's a question I will not tolerate.

Because kids can handle it?

Sendak: If they can't handle it, go home. Or wet your pants. Do whatever you like. But it's not a question that can be answered.

Jonze: Dave, you want to field that one?

Eggers: The part about kids wetting their pants? Should kids wear diapers when they go to the movies? I think adults should wear diapers going to it, too. I think everyone should be prepared for any eventuality.

So apparently I was wrong about Michael Bay being the film-maker most eager to have us all wear diapers to the movies.

Good news for fellow Dollhouse fans...

Premiere week DVR results: 'Dollhouse,' 'Smallville' top gain list

Premiere week DVR data is here and the results show that Fox's "Dollhouse" gained a higher percentage of additional viewers than nearly any other show.

The "Dollhouse" premiere rating jumped a stunning 50% when seven-day viewing is added.

Granted, the "Dollhouse" base was extremely low -- the show went from a 1.0 rating to a 1.5. Many other shows during premiere week obviously gained far more than a half a rating point. But executives look at how much a show gained compared to its initial live-plus-same-day number, and to boost your rating by 50% is huge.

The CW's "Smallville," which also airs Friday nights, likewise gained 50%, tying "Dollhouse" for the biggest percentage gain. 

"Dollhouse" has been doing pretty dreadful, but this news coupled with Friday's ratings gain will likely give some hope to Joss Whedon fans ... the question is whether it's enough to change the show's fate.

The next-biggest DVR gainer is The CW's "90210," climbing 40%.

Fox's "Fringe" is next on the list, up 39% -- no surprise considering its tough new time period.

Then "Melrose Place" (+38%) and "Gossip Girl" (+36%). Again, not a surprise, since the CW always posts high percentage gains thanks to its low base and young DVR-savvy audience.

Another Friday night show, NBC's "Law & Order" is next (+33%), followed by NBC's "Heroes" (+32%). 

Few more: Fox's "Bones" (+29%), CBS' "The Mentalist" (+28%), CBS' "Numbers" (+28%), ABC's "Castle" (+26%), Fox's "Glee" (+26%) and NBC's "The Office" (+26%).

Though I haven't seen a breakdown on this point yet, I'm sure the average gain for premiere week is higher than it was last year. 

So let's skip down to the bottom of the list and see who's gaining the least.

Among what's interesting down here is that Fox's "Dollhouse" lead-in, the new comedy "Brothers," was one of the least time-shifted shows -- gaining, well, when rounded it's 0%. Which proves that just because a scripted show is on Fridays doesn't mean people will necessarily check it out later.

NBC's "The Jay Leno Show" occupied many of the lower spots, generally gaining about a tenth of a rating point (or 5%).

CBS' "Cold Case" (+5%) and freshman sitcom "Accidentally on Purpose" (+6%) don't seem to be on many viewers season pass list. 

Neither are Fox's Sunday animated comedies -- which is surprising. Especially with many guys watching "Sunday Night Football," you would think shows like "Cleveland" and "American Dad" would climb more than 8%.


"Morbid, Dead-Girl Lit" Is Hott

A look into the minds of teens - who are actually adults thinking like kids, but stay with me - is really, fascinatingly scary:

In a juicy profile, New Yorker's Rebecca Mead goes inside the behemoth teen taste-maker Alloy, a sort of sinister junior Clear Channel that's responsible for much of the YA bestseller list, including the multimedia Gossip Girl and Traveling Pants juggernauts and, more lately, The Vampire Diaries. And do we ever see the pink, undead, bratty sausage being made! Here's how Mead describes the efficient hit-factory:

[Alloy] pack-ges about thirty novels a year for publishers, and also generates television shows and a growing number of ideas for featurefilms. In order to do all this, Alloy has developed a process with an industrial level of efficiency. Ideas are typically suggested in weekly development meetings and, if they gain the approval of Morgenstein and Bank, are fleshed out into a short summary by an editor. A writer is asked to create a sample chapter on spec; if Alloy executives are happy with the sample, they put her (or, on occasion, him) on contract. The writer hashes out a plot with Bank, one or two other editors, and Sara Shandler, Alloy's editorial director-an alumnus of Seventeen, who, at the age of nineteen, put together the anthology "Ophelia Speaks.

Ahhhhnald Schwarzenegger signs tougher paparazzi law

Bill makes it easier to sue media outlets that use privacy-invading photos

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

LOS ANGELES - California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed an anti-paparazzi bill making it easier to sue media outlets that use photos that invade celebrities’ privacy.

A statement issued Monday says the former “Terminator” star had signed a number of bills, including the amendment to a decade-old law that allows fines against paparazzi who illegally or offensively take photos or recordings.

The amendment permits lawsuits against media outlets that pay for and make first use of material they knew was improperly obtained.

Tabloid magazines, TV shows and Internet sites sometimes pay millions of dollars for celebrity fodder.

The amendment takes effect in January.

Christian Bale


This is the trailer for Nasty Old People, which, according to BoingBoing is “the first feature film in Swedish history to be released under a Creative Commons license.” I don’t really know what that means, but apparently you can download it for free legally from The Pirate Bay. It sounds pretty typical for a Scandinavian film — death, nazis, etc.

Mette is a member of a neo-Nazi gang, her day job is to take care of four crazy old people that all are just waiting to die. Her life becomes a journey into a burlesque fairytale, where the rules of the game are created by Mette herself. Mette is indifferent about her way of life, until she one night assaults a man, kicking him senseless. Waking up the day after, she realizes that something is wrong, and in company with the her crazy oldies she longs for respect and love. She can tell that the old folks are marginalized by the modern society, but together they create a world and a voice of their own.

Hard to get a real feel from it from the trailer. Mainly I just posted it because it had nazis and old people watching porno. Plus the trailer shows the nazi chick in a bath tub, and it’s a foreign film so you know you’ll get to see her naked lots. I don’t really understand what neo-Nazis in Scandinavia do. Do they just march around going, “You know who we hate? The dark people we’ve read about in books!” It’s like someone from Alabama complaining about the Jews.

Stephen Gately had X Factor job

STEPHEN Gately was due to appear on the X Factor to help judge Louis Walsh mentor the groups, The Sun can reveal.

He was ready to film in the next few weeks and was said to be "really excited" about appearing on the ITV1 hit. It was part of his plan for a TV comeback before releasing a new album with Boyzone. Stephen was also in talks to star in a reality show.

His X Factor appearance would have come shortly after bandmate Ronan Keating, 32, helped Louis pick his final three acts.

A source said: "Stephen was really excited about coming down to the live show. He had been asking Ronan about the groups. Stephen loved the show and wanted to come on as well." In one of his last interviews, Stephen also revealed he felt under pressure to get back into shape for the comeback after seeing Ronan show off a six-pack while posing for pictures.

In the interview last Monday, he said: "I wish I was in good shape. I have been in the gym today because I'm feeling the pressure of him, and I thought, 'I've got to get back in shape'."

Zach Braff is NOT DEAD

NEW YORK (WPIX) - Actor Zach Braff seems to be the latest celebrity killed on the internet.

Braff, 34, is alive and well despite a rumor that popped up on Twitter, complete with a fake CNN article that stated Braff had died of an apparent suicide. The headline of the web article read, "Beloved Scrubs Actor Found Dead in his Home."

An ABC spokesperson has since confirmed that the whole story was a hoax.

"He's alive," an official wrote in an email. "Thank God. It's just another hoax. People, always doubt what you read on social networking sites..."

New Blood: The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley

New Blood: The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley

paul-wesley-tv-pata.jpg"I hate to admit this," Paul Wesley says, "but I've never really owned a TV." It's quite a confession, given that the actor's appeared in more than two dozen small-screen series, including 24, The O.C., and C.S.I. "I've had cameos on some cool shows," he says. "But it's nice to now be doing something that I'm involved in from the beginning."
He's talking, of course, about The Vampire Diaries--the new CW drama based on L.J. Smith's bestselling books. Starring as sensitive vampire Stefan Salvatore, Paul's a natural on camera, but getting into character was challenging: "I'm 150 years old but trapped in a teenager's body, I have these supernatural abilities, and whenever my hormones go out of whack"--like, for example, when he sees his love interest, Elena (Nina Dobrev)--"my eyes turn bloodred, and I get all pale and veiny." He could, however, relate to Stefan's reclusiveness: "I wasn't some weird loner in school, but I definitely wasn't invited to any of the cool parties," the New Jersey native, who started missing classes after he was cast on a soap opera sophomore year, says. "Girls didn't like me that much--I didn't even go to my prom."
Paul didn't just draw from his own experience; he also did his research. "The minute I was cast, I plowed through all the books." And he made a point of not reading or watching Twilight. "I didn't want to be influenced by it at all," he says. But the other bloodsuckers were hard to avoid: New Moon and The Vampire Diaries were both being shot in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, last April. "The cast was staying at our hotel--we saw them everywhere and hung out all the time. They're actually really nice people." And while critics have been quick to call the show a Twilight spin-off (though, for the record, Smith's books were written before Stephenie Meyer's), Paul, who recently relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, to continue filming, disagrees: "They have vampires and high school romance in common, but that's about it." --LINDSAY TALBOT

High School Musical: Glee's Lea Michele



Broadway baby Lea Michele tunes up for television's Glee.

Rachel Berry, the teenaged would-be drama queen at the center of Fox's song-and-dance series Glee, would pretty much kill to be Lea Michele, the actress who plays her. After all, Lea made her Broadway debut at eight, stepping in as young Cosette in Les Mis??rables after an open call. "I'd never sung before," the New York City native says. "My friend was auditioning, and I was like, 'I want to go too!' I just took to it."

She appeared in Ragtime and Fiddler on the Roof and won the starring role in Spring Awakening at fourteen, sticking with the show for almost eight years as it went from early workshops to the Great White Way. Nothing's set in stone, but she "really, really wants" to appear in the forthcoming feature film version.) Now 23, she lives in L.A. with Glee costar Dianna Agron (who plays on-screen rival Quinn) and a pair of cats named for two characters in Hair. Meanwhile Ms. Berry, though talented, is still striving (and stuck in Ohio).

Nevertheless, Lea insists that she was quite keen to take on the role of Rachel. "I'd been hearing about Glee for a while," she explains, "and I fought for it, that's for sure." Asked who she was fighting, she laughs--turns out it wasn't exactly an uphill battle. A "Well, I'd met Ryan Murphy, the cocreator, in 2007, A and after I was cast, he told me that he had sort of written the part with me in mind," she admits. "I wish I'd known earlier . . . I would have been a lot less nervous!"

Trouble in Paradise?

American Idol runner up Adam Lambert partied hard with his boyfriend Friday night at hotspot Teddys, and RadarOnline.com was there to soak up all the fun.

Everything was fine for a while with the couple. They danced together and knocked back some vodka Redbulls and were touchy-feely. (Remember when Adam was on Idol and there was speculation about his sexuality?)

But before you could say “I can’t believe Kris Allen won”, Adam and his significant other seemed to get into a bit of a tiff.

Adam started chatting up another guy and Mr. Significant Other didn’t seem happy. In fact, he left the lounge for the smoking section and lit up a cigarette. Then, he started walking away from the Roosevelt Hotel (where Teddy’s is located).

Next thing you know, Adam was running after him, telling him to wait and they disappeared into the night.

We couldn’t hear what they were saying, but it sure looked like Adam was trying to make peace!


An interesting article about how the movie 'Good Hair' got it wrong.

Chris Rock’s documentary, Good Hair, opened Friday to mixed, but frequently positive, reviews. I’m going to take the painful stance of suggesting that’s because there aren’t a lot of black women in the film reviewing community. Good Hair is often funny, fascinating, and raises a few key ideas. What it doesn’t do is offer a cogent, relevant analysis of why black women relax their hair or wear hair extensions — which was supposed to have been the point.

Some background: Rock says he did the film because his daughter came to him one day, upset, that she didn’t have “good hair.” This apparently prompted the comedian to begin an odyssey that took him from the hair salons of New York City to a hair show in Atlanta, from Indian hair-shaving ceremonies, to the Beverly Hills salons that buy the Indian hair. But in all that conversation what you never hear are opposing viewpoints. Nearly everyone in Chris Rock’s movie seems to agree on a few critical ideas (that can happen when you limit your sample). Frankly, as a black woman, I sat through Good Hair with one dominant thought: Who are these people? Their opinions rarely represented my own, or those of anyone I know. I am but one voice in this vast, complicated community, but I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t say something. Here, a few of the ways Good Hair gets it entirely wrong.

Orlando Bloom: UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

Orlando Bloom Pictures, Images and Photos

Orlando Bloom has been appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, in recognition of his commitment to the rights of children around the world.

“I look forward to working with UNICEF as they continue to make the world a better place for children,” says the 32-year-old British actor who has already seen the work UNICEF is doing in Nepal, Russia, and Sarajevo. “UNICEF doesn’t just deliver humanitarian aid, which is what they are known for all over the world. They also educate and provide tools which help women and children face challenges specific to their own lives. I responded to how UNICEF works as much as I did to the work itself. I look forward to learning more and to supporting UNICEF any way I can.”

To celebrate 20 years of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, Orlando will, this week, record a PSA for UNICEF on the importance of clean and accessible drinking water.

Amy Winehouse feared her new breast implants would explode

POP singer Amy Winehouse was rushed to hospital after she feared her new breast implants would explode.

After surgery to lift her breasts last Thursday, 26-year-old Amy, 26, appeared as a backing singer for goddaughter Dionne Bromfield on the UK TV show Strictly Come Dancing and was clearly in discomfort.

"Amy started shouting, 'I need to see someone, my boobs are f***ing killing me,'" a friend of the Rehab singer told The Daily Mirror newspaper in England.

"Her manager quickly sorted a car to get her to the London Clinic. Typically,  Amy made the driver stop off at Nando’s for some chicken - she said she didn’t want hospital food.

"The doctors ordered her to stay overnight to make sure everything was OK. She only had her breasts lifted a few days ago and she should have been resting to let them heal instead of running around town."

She was admitted to the London Clinic as an emergency case and kept in overnight on Saturday, before being discharged yesterday.

Amy was clearly in pain before going on stage.

"She was chatting to (contestant) Jo Wood before going on and told her about the op and how much pain she was in.

"Everyone noticed that she looked out of time when she tried to dance. The reason was that she was in such pain she could hardly lift her arms."

Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat and Har Mar Superstar to Write a Show About Hipsters

Film star Ellen Page is adding a TV writer-producer credit to her resume.

Page has teamed with HBO for "Stitch N' Bitch," a single-camera comedy she will write with two other young actors, Alia Shawkat and Sean Tillmann.

The trio will executive produce the project, which follows two painfully cool hipster girls as they relocate from Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood to Los Angeles' Silver Lake enclave in hopes of becoming artists -- of any kind.

Page, Shawkat and Tillmann might also star, but a decision about them acting in "Stitch" will be made later.

The three worked together on the Drew Barrymore-directed "Whip It," which is in theaters. Page plays the lead and Shawkat co-stars. Tillmann has a small role.

Page, an Oscar nominee for her breakthrough role in "Juno," is filming "Inception" opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. She is repped by WME, manager Kelly Bush and attorney Kevin Yorn.

"Arrested Development" alumna Shawkat, repped by UTA, Kipperman Management and attorney Jamie Feldman, recently wrapped "The Runaways" and co-starred in "Amreeka."

Tillmann also is a musician who goes by stage names Har Mar Superstar and Sean Na Na.


Sigh, hipsters. If Ellen and Alia are going to star in this, I might watch. They should try and get some AD alumni on the show.

If you think Michael Jackson's "This Is It" sounds familiar, it's because the song is a rip-off that was released nearly two decades ago by another artist ... and the man making this claim is none other than music legend Paul Anka.

Anka tells TMZ in 1983, he wrote a song with Jackson called "I Never Heard" -- and the demo of the song was recorded in Anka's studio in Carmel, CA. Anka says he took the tape to a studio in Hollywood to put the finishing touches on it for Anka's duets album, "Walk a Fine Line." Anka claims Jackson -- who was just blowing up at the time with "Thriller" -- got a big head and "stole the tapes" from the studio.

Anka tells us he called the lawyers who repped both he and Jackson -- ironically one of them was John Branca -- and threatened them with a lawsuit if he didn't get the tapes back. Anka got them back but insists Jackson made a copy of the tapes and used the track with his voice from "I Never Heard" -- and simply retitled it, "This Is It."

Anka gave "I Never Heard" to another artist -- Safire -- who recorded it in 1990.

We called Sony Music
who released "This Is It" ... no comment so far.

Anka tells us he's talking with his lawyers about his legal options.

Admittedly, I don’t keep up with SpongeBob SquarePants the way I do with, say, Lost or Medium or Melrose Place. But this exclusive clip from Truth or Square, a one-hour special airing Nov. 6, 8:00 p.m. EDT, on Nickelodeon, has me wondering if maybe I should. I mean, seriously, SpongeBob getting married to Sandy? A primitive multicellular beastie betrothed to a squirrel? I can’t say I saw these nuptials coming!

Fortunately, a Nickelodeon publicist sent me a release putting the ceremony in context. Truth or Square — narrated by Ricky Gervais and featuring Rosario Dawson, Craig Ferguson, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, LeBron James, Pink, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Robin Williams — will piece together never-before-seen flashbacks of SpongeBob and his pals after they get trapped inside Krusty Krab’s freezer during the restaurant’s “eleventy seventh” birthday. And apparently, the SpongeBob-Sandy ceremony is one of the Very Special Moments being revisited for the first time. Press play below for a glimpse of a moony-eyed SpongeBob in love. You may never look at Bikini Bottom the same way again.

Thomas Lennon to write & star in new NBC comedy with Robert Ben Garant

Two months after he broke the news of his Comedy Central show "Reno 911!" coming to an end, series star/co-creator Thomas Lennon is headlining a new comedy project at NBC.

The broadcast network has handed a pilot commitment with penalty to the multicamera comedy he will write with Robert Ben Garant, his "Reno" co-creator/co-star and frequent collaborator.

The two also will executive produce the project, whose premise is being kept under wraps, with Peter Principato and Paul Young. Lennon will star; Garant will play a supporting role.

Additionally, NBC and sibling Universal Media Studios, which is producing the Lennon/Garant project, has inked a talent holding deal with Lennon that includes his show with Garant.

NBC and UMS moved quickly to lock in Lennon and Garant following "Reno's" August cancellation after a six-season run.

"Our entire team has long been fans of the work Lennon and Garant have done on 'Reno 911!' as well as their comedy films," NBC president of primetime entertainment Angela Bromstad said, noting that network brass will look for the duo "to come up with a comedy hit."

Lennon and Garant, co-founders of New York-based sketch comedy troupe the State, have written such features as the two "Night at the Museum" films, "Reno 911!: Miami," "Balls of Fury" and "The Pacifier."

The pair, who recently signed a writing deal with Spyglass Entertainment, have several film projects in the pipeline: "How to Survive a Robot Uprising" at Paramount, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" and "The Devil You Know" at Fox and "The Incredible Shrinking Man" for Universal and Imagine.

In front of the camera, Lennon recently appeared in "I Love You, Man" and "17 Again."

British BFF’s Leona Lewis and Keisha Buchanan were snapped last night as they arrived to a charity event hand-in-hand.

The pair were both dressed up in matching pirate outfits.

According to recent reports in the media, Keisha’s solo career could be off to a strong start, with both Ne-Yo and Taio Cruz both revealing that they’d love to work with the former Sugababe.

A paternity test has confirmed what Jude Law already admitted. The Sherlock Holmes star is, in fact, the father of Samantha Burke’s daughter, Sophia, reports E! News. “Since the birth of her daughter, Sophia, there have been a number of reports in the media questioning paternity,” said Burke’s representative, Eileen Koch. “In response to those questions, Samantha can firm that DNA testing has conclusively established that Jude Law is Sophia’s father. Samantha and Sophia are doing well and appreciate all of the well wishes they have received.”

The baby, born Sept. 22, was the product of a brief flight between the current Broadway star, 36, and the aspiring model, 24.
“I can advise that, as per Jude’s original statement, he considers this an entirely private matter and will be making no further comment – nor us on his behalf,” said Law's London representative, Sara Keene.
