Lil Wayne Caught With Unauthorized Electronics in His Jail Cell

Corrections sources are telling the Voice that rapper Lil Wayne was caught today at Rikers in possession of "unauthorized earphones and a charger" during a search. An investigation is underway to find the missing device (almost certainly an iPod or other kind of MP3 player) that goes with the headphones. The MP3 player was discovered in the cell of another inmate in the unit. And, in a kind of tragic detail, it turns out Lil Wayne had hidden the original contraband--the charger and headphones--in a snack bag in the garbage can of his cell. He's being charged with an infraction--possession of contraband, says our source. Inmates are allowed to purchase an AM/FM player and earphones from the commissary, but what Wayne had wasn't authorized. Before you yawn, realize that everyone in Rikers--even the celebrities--is forbidden to possess any form of non-sanctioned mobile electronics, whether cell phones, videogames, or otherwise, and the fact that Lil Wayne was found with an iPod in his cell means that someone had to smuggle it into him.

Whether it was a guard or a visitor is unknown as yet, but either would constitute a serious security breach. (Already, just a few weeks into Wayne's year and a day term on weapons charges, a Rikers guard was fired for allegedly spying on the rapper.) Ironically, before Wayne went behind bars, the rapper told Rolling Stone that he planned to keep working while in prison: "I'll have an iPod, and I'll make sure they keep sending me beats." Guess the lack of one turned out to be more a burden than he could bear--no surprise for a guy who recorded at all hours of the day and night back when he was a free man.

he probably just wanted his music to write rhymes and stuff :( all he wanted was some music DAMNIT

Confirmed: Britney Spears working with M.I.A. "XXXO" producer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

With stage one of his mainstream-takeover master plan complete, Mercer [Rusko] is now focusing on stage two: major labels. He recently produced songs for Rihanna and rapper T.I., and has begun work on a Britney Spears record with megaproducer and South Rakkas Crew label head Alex Greggs. The upcoming tracks may put dubstep, and Rusko, on the map. But he’s not worried about going too pop, he says, as he unveils his M.I.A. tracks from his beat-up laptop.

“They approach me because they want me to do what I do. They don’t want me to make a cheesy pop record. I just want to be known for my beats. It’s simple. What you see is what you get. Bang! The music.”


Larry Rudolph Shoots Down Reports He’s Working With Lindsay Lohan

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

Music manager extraordinaire Larry Rudolph was surprised by a recent report that he’s interested in resurrecting Lindsay Lohan’s career.

On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Rudolph, who helped bring pop princess Britney Spears back to superstardom after her breakdown, was “working” with LiLo.

“He’s not 100 percent in yet,” a source told the Web site. “If Rudolph feels Lindsay is ready, he’s onboard,” another source said.

Larry, however, seemed to shoot down the report Tuesday afternoon in a statement to Access Hollywood. When asked about the rumors he told Access, “TMZ has a very vivid imagination.”

The Sarah Silverman Program canceled

It’s the end of the road for Comedy Central’s The Sarah Silverman Program, which has been canceled after 3 seasons despite a Twitter campaign to save it.

The show earned Silverman a lead actress Emmy nomination last year. But it also was on the brink of cancellation in 2009 when she and fellow executive producers Dan Sterling and Rob Schrab threatened to quit after the cable network asked them to slash the series’ budget by more than 20%.

A last-minute deal with sister network Logo was reached to co-finance the series, so a 10-episode third season was ordered. But midway through Season 3, which wrapped last month, the network bumped the series from 10:30 PM to midnight, hinting at its intention not to continue with Sarah.

At the beginning of the year, Comedy Central went through a regime change, with former New Line executive Kent Alterman taking over for Lauren Corrao as head of original programming.

Silverman, meanwhile, is keeping busy promoting her bestselling book The Bedwetter and signing on to co-star in the Sarah Polley movie Take This Waltz.



Miley Cyrus -- So You Think You Can Lap Dance?

Miley Cyrus felt more than the beat last summer as she got downright nasty on the dance floor with a slightly older gentleman during a wrap party for a movie ... and TMZ has obtained the video.

Miley -- who was 16 at the time -- was dancing with 44-year-old Adam Shankman during a wrap party last summer in Georgia for the movie, "The Last Song." Shankman, who is openly gay, produced the movie as well as "Hairspray" and other flicks and is a judge on "So You Think You Can Dance?"

The people who shot the video say they were offended by the dirty dancing -- which included a graphic lap dance.

We're told Miley's parents were not at the wrap party. Miley's reps had no comment.

Check out the full story on TMZ TV tonight.

* Mods this was not post. The video that was previously posted is just her grinding on him, in this video she grinds on him then later gives him a lap dance.

Ian McKellan mistaken for panhandler, given spare change

Whether he's playing Gandalf, Magneto or King Lear, Sir Ian McKellen is known for his character roles. But his latest performance was perhaps his most impressive yet - he was mistaken for a genuine tramp as he sat outside a theatre. The 70-year-old X-Men star was wearing his threadbare costume during a break from rehearsing for Waiting For Godot in Melbourne, Australia, when a passer-by gave him an Australian dollar

He tweeted: 'During the dress rehearsal of Godot, I crouched by the stage door of the Comedy Theatre, getting some air, my bowler hat at my feet [and] seeing an unkempt old man down on his luck, a passer-by said, 'Need some help, brother?' and put a dollar in my hat.'
Sir Ian added: 'I hope the Melbourne audiences will be as generous

'The dollar coin is now lodged between two drawing pins on the board above my dressing room mirror. The actor recreated the moment for publicity shots - perhaps hoping to increase the interest in the play.

Lohan denies feud with Avril Lavigne

Lindsay Lohan has denied reports that she clashed with Avril Lavigne recently at a Hollywood hotel.

It had been claimed that 25-year-old Lavigne shouted at Lohan in a Hollywood hotel: "Get the hell out of my face, you are fake, you are a loser. I don't like false people. Stay away from me and my friends."

Lohan reportedly then tried to get security guards to kick Lavigne out.
The 23-year-old actress denied to Us Magazine that this was the case, saying: "That is not true."

However, the feud between the two is said to have kicked off weeks before, after Lohan snubbed Lavigne at an event.


LOL, bye bitch

For weeks, even in the face of Heroes' bottom-dwelling ratings, conventional wisdom among TV-industry insiders has been that NBC was leaning heavily toward bringing back its once-mighty superhero series for a fifth and final thirteen-episode wrap-up season. But as NBC has become more confident in its slate of new shows, all indications are that our Heroes are dead.

Believe it or not, this is actually something of a surprise. Even though less than 5 million die-hard fans bothered to tune into last February's season-four finale (down from a peak of just under 17 million viewers who were watching at the start of season two), observers had figured NBC would find a way to keep Heroes around, if only as an insurance policy in case all of its new offerings flopped this fall. And since the show is wholly owned by NBC Universal, some speculated that the money generated by DVDs and international sales of the show would be enough of an incentive for NBC to give the show one more shot.

But when NBC executives got a look at the new pilots they had ordered (five have already been commissioned as series), they fell in love with their own handiwork; the network felt far better about these new shows' potential than they did about Heroes'
. Even though there's no guarantee that any of the newcomers will work, there's a lot more upside to giving a new contender such as J.J. Abrams's Undercovers the time to find an audience rather than yanking it off quickly and begging viewers to give Heroes one more shot. As a result, according to agency sources and chatter around Hollywood, Heroes has started looking less like a backup plan and more like a waste of money.

However, NBC (which declined to comment for this story) is nothing if not appreciative of the few Heroes fans who still care about the saga and doesn't want to leave them hanging. While a half-season appears to be out of the question, we hear there's a good chance the network will at least try to find a way to fund a two- or four-hour movie event in order to give some finality to the franchise. Those discussions haven't taken place yet, however, since NBC still hasn't officially told Heroes creator Tim Kring his show is canceled. Networks like to hold on to as many cards as possible headed into their annual upfront announcements (NBC's is on Monday), in case some last-minute development suddenly shifts the scheduling equation. This time last year, for example, the obits for Joss Whedon's Dollhouse had already been written when Fox stunned TV types by giving the show another (futile) shot.

In the case of Heroes, however, you can probably stick a Kensei sword in it: It's done.

Cougar Town turns out to be NOT about a cougar after all!

Interview: 'Cougar Town' producer Bill Lawrence on how the show transcended a bad title/premise


It hasn't been the best new comedy of the season (I leave it to the warring "Community" and "Modern Family" factions to battle that title to the death), but no show on television demonstrated a more impressive learning curve over the course of a season than ABC's "Cougar Town," which airs its next-to-last episode of the season tomorrow at 9:30.

What began as a sitcom that lived up - or down - to its title instead morphed into a charming, goofy ensemble comedy. Instead of chasing after younger guys and obsessing over wrinkles, Courteney Cox's Jules is now playing den mother to a weird surrogate family in her cul de sac, trying to pass the time by drinking wine, pranking each other, writing songs and inventing silly games like the elegantly simple Penny Can.

Noemie Lenoir’s Suicide Attempt

She’s one of the top models in the industry, but Noemie Lenoir appears to have hit a rough spot in life- she was found unconscious in a wooded area after what is believed to be a suicide attempt.

The 30-year-old Marks & Spencer babe was discovered slumped over in La Celle-Saint-Cloud near Paris, France by a man out walking his dog on Sunday (May 9).

According to an inside source, “After coming to, Noemie was in a state of great distress and clearly very ill. She had clearly attempted to harm herself and had fallen unconscious.”

“She was rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for the effects of poisoning. It seems that she may have tried to commit suicide as a cry for help. She’s now in a far better condition and recovering.”


More information here; apparently her bf is a douche:

"Hirschmann, a notorious playboy, has been accused by police of being involved in orgies with young models whom he is said to have plied with vodka-based cocktails called ‘Love Potion’ before videoing them in depraved sex acts.

He is accused of blackmailing the models with the X-rated tapes from the CCTV camera – demanding huge amounts of cash in return for not posting them on the internet. He denies the accusations."

Siohvaughn Wade Jailed in Custody Case

Messy NBA divorces and baby mama drama are all too common these days. On this Tuesday afternoon, it's the saga of Dwyane Wade's wife making headlines.

Siohvaughn Wade was taken into police custody today in Chicago after bailing on a mandatory hearing yesterday in the estranged pair's ongoing divorce war.

The Cook County Sheriff's Department says Siohvaughn was a wanted woman, and taken into custody this morning when she showed up to court in Chicago.

Yesterday, the court issued an order asking police to track her down.

In court today, Siohvaughn's attorney filed papers claiming that she - the attorney - was involved in a car accident yesterday, and asked that the order be rescinded citing the accident as the reason why Siohvaughn was a no-show.

The judge didn't buy it. Siohvaughn was jailed at 11:15 a.m.

Amusingly, Siohvaughn must have known the car accident excuse wasn't going to work, because court officials say she showed up with her $10,000 bond in hand.

She is therefore now out of custody as of this posting.

Last week, she filed a lawsuit alleging her husband's relationship and heavy petting with Gabrielle Union has caused distress to her and the couple's two children.

Siohvaugh also accused Dwyane of giving her an STD.

Marilyn Monroe's death is the plot of a new movie

Production company FilmEngine has just optioned to 'reopen' the case surrounding Marilyn Monroe's mysterious death. The film will dramatize Lionel Grandison's experience, a deputy Los Angeles coroner who claims he was forced to falsify Monroe's death certificate to say it was a suicide rather than murder. Grandison also contends that he read Monroe's diary.

"Marilyn" will be penned by John Ryan Jr., a filmmaker-producer who also had cameo appearances in The Parkers, Boston Public and Judging Amy. The production company FilmEngine has produced movies like Lucky Number Slevin, Raise Your Voice and the Butterfly Effect series. -_-

The "Marilyn" project brings Grandison's story to the bigscreen for the first time. His involvement with Monroe's case has been mentioned in several books.

"After being forced to sign a falsified death certificate, he was threatened for years about what he knew. The threats only stopped recently," Producer Anthony Rhulen said.


also, there is a documentary being made about her death called "Murder on Fifth Helena Drive." The infamous Marilyn Monroe smoking pot video will be featured (why? idk), and is being directed by Keya Morgan (the man who claimed to have had a Marilyn sex tape and historical photograph collector of sorts).

the biggest selling rapper of all time's new single "not afraid" to debut at #1

Eminem will join a very elite club tomorrow when the new Billboard Hot 100 singles chart is unveiled.

The hip-hop king's new single, "Not Afraid," will be just the 16th to debut at No. 1 on the nearly 52-year old chart.

Released digitally last Monday (May 3) just four days after its radio premiere, "Not Afraid" busts out of the gate with 380,000 first-week digital downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan -- the biggest sales week for a digital track this calendar year. The song also debuts at No. 24 on the radio-based Rap Songs chart, and is bubbling under the Radio Songs chart with 10.3 million listener impressions, according to Nielsen BDS.

"Not Afraid" is the lead single from Eminem's new album "Recovery," due out on June 22. The single is the first to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since Oct. 17, 2009, when Britney Spears' "3" danced in at No. 1. "Afraid" is only the second rap single to start at No. 1 following "I'll Be Missing You" by Puff Daddy & Faith Evans featuring 112, which began its 11-week run at the summit on the chart dated June 14, 1997.

"Not Afraid" is Eminem's third chart-topper. He first led the list for 12 weeks with "Lose Yourself" in 2002-03 and made an impressive 78-1 jump with "Crack A Bottle," along with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent, on the list dated Feb. 21, 2009. "Bottle" set a then-record for selling the most downloads in its first week of release (418,000), a mark shattered the following week when Flo Rida's "Right Round" started with 636,000.

Greg Grunberg and Jennifer Love Hewitt Join the Mile High Club in 'Love Bites'

Television viewers will get more than they bargained for with the news that NBC has picked up the show 'Love Bites.' One of the new comedy's episodes features the unlikely scene of Greg Grunberg joining the Mile High Club ... with Jennifer Love Hewitt.

"It was crazy," Grunberg confesses to PopEater. "But if you have to be stuck with someone in a bathroom that size, it might as well be Jennifer Love Hewitt," he adds. "I'm no petite guy, and it was really tight quarters."

Grunberg jumped at the chance to work with Hewitt for the first time. "She's the greatest. I have a small list of people whom I love working with, and she's on that list. We were dreaming, saying we should do a series together," he said.

The racy subject matter got the folks on the set talking. "I mentioned I hadn't joined the mile-high club and then someone on the set said they were sort of in the club, but not from the bathroom," recalls a still-outraged Grunberg. "I was like, 'How do you do that on the plane?'"

Grunberg says he's not a member and doesn't plan to be. "Those bathrooms are disgusting and tiny. It's people working down a checklist really. That's what it comes down to."

Even though the scene was shot on a fake plane set, it was still way too small for the 'Heroes' star. "This movie plane bathroom had removable walls, and I was still claustrophobic," says Grunberg. "We were like, 'How do people do this?'"


Soooo...any ONTD members also a part of the Mile High Club??? Don't be shy now.

Brad Pitt Working On The Tiger

Brad Pitt is teaming up with Darren Aronofsky to film novel adaptation 'The Tiger', scripted by '21 Grams' writer Guillermo Arriaga.

Brad Pitt and Darren Aronofsky are working on new adventure thriller 'The Tiger'.

The movie - based on a non-fiction book yet to be released by John Vaillant - has been optioned by Focus Features, with Brad potentially taking a leading role.

The story - which is being scripted by Guillermo Arriaga - tells the tale of human developers in Siberia who are tracked and hunted by an "almost" supernaturally-powerful tiger, Variety reports.

Guillermo said: "This is the first time I have adapted a screenplay, since I have previously only written original screenplays.

"I chose to adapt this story, first, because I have a profound love for the outdoors and the intense tension between man and nature which the book reflects; and, second, because of the great privilege of working with such accomplished filmmakers as Darren Aronofsky, Brad Pitt, and James Schamus."

Guillermo and Brad previously worked together on drama movie 'Babel' and both dropped out of 'The Fighter' - which now stars Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg.

The novel 'The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival' is due for publication in August.

Hardly a shocker if true, unless you were one of those definitively declaring it had zero chance for renewal. If that’s you, please wait for confirmation before going into hiding!

Update: again, my understanding of the deal is that it’s a standard 13+9 order (NBC has the option to order 9 more episodes, commonly referred to as a “back 9″) and that indicates Chuck would be on the fall schedule. Last year (for the current season). Chuck was announced as a mid-season show to begin with last May and there was no “back 9″ attached. Later its air date was pushed up to early January and NBC ordered six additional episodes.

Courtney Love reaches out to daughter on twitter

Courtney Love, who has been a bit bizzy these days touring and promoting the release of the new Hole album Nobody’s Daughter to spend much time penning frantic meltdowns on Twitter or Facebook, suffered a social media break-down this past weekend likely due to the occasion of Mother’s Day.

A couple of days ago, Courtney posted a SLEW of her trademark wacky tweets on her official Twitter profile ranting on everything from her ruined financial situation to Billy Corgan (I know, what’s new, right?) But late last night/early this morning, C. Love posted another slew of tweets directed at her daughter Frances Bean Cobain (whom she lost parental custody of late last year) in a likely attempt to offer her estranged daughter advice in life, love and legalities … as only Courtney Love can do.

Here is C. Love’s latest string of tweet messages for your reading pleasure (all spelling and grammatical errors are her own):

The Biggest Midget in the Game is a Big O' Lesbian.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

British musician Lady Sovereign has sensationally talked about coming out in the new issue of DIVA magazine.

Speaking exclusively to the leading women's title - the world’s best-selling lesbian glossy magazine - she discusses her sexuality, her status and her personal life; including why she refused to discuss her love life before.

“Magazines would always ask about it but [questions about my sexuality] would get stopped by my publicists. It was my choice, too, because I was a bit worried about it but now I don’t really give a shit.

"You can’t hide away forever. It’s just stupid and now I’ve come out I feel a lot more comfortable with myself. But it was a bit scary back then because some people do have horrible opinions.”

In the interview she also discusses the pressures of fame and her mother’s recent tragic death.

The issue, which also features Stella Duffy and Heather Cassils, is on sale 13 May.

'Less Than Perfect's' Sara Rue Drops 40 Lbs. on Jenny Craig

(Before and after pic from Popeater.)

Being a spokesperson for Jenny Craig has been actress Sara Rue’s most challenging role ever, but it’s also been her most rewarding one. Since December she has taken control of her food issues and recently hit a new milestone–losing 40 lbs.! “I feel great and I feel very excited and hopeful,” Rue, 31, tells PEOPLE. “It’s pretty cool to know that however I want my body to look, I can have that.” Fellow Jenny Craig spokesperson Valerie Bertinelli tells PEOPLE, “I’m so proud of her. Look at her! She’s freakin’ gorgeous.” Anxious to “see what this body can do,” Rue has signed up for the Napa to Sonoma half marathon, which she plans to run with Bertinelli in July. “I never thought I would take to running, but I did a 5K recently and that went well! And I think I might be crazy, but my next goal is to do a half marathon with Valerie this summer,” says Rue. “I’m really excited to ramp up my training now that I’ve lost 40. We’ll see where this takes me!” Rue originally set a weight loss goal of 30 lbs., but managed to surpass that by considering her Jenny Craig experience as a lifestyle change instead of a diet. And she’s not done yet. “I’m going to go on and lose a little bit more,” she says. “The longer I am on the program, the less I have to think about it. It just becomes a lifestyle. It’s not like you’re on today, off tomorrow."


Damn, she looks pretty good.

Today's WTF news

Lawrence Taylor To Use Masturbation Excuse: TMZ

Lawrence Taylor may claim that he committed a "masturbatory act" while with a 16-year-old prostitute, TMZ reports. According to the web site, Taylor will claim that he pleasured himself, but will deny having sex with the girl he was arrested for raping.

As ProFootballTalk noted last week, Taylor could still be convicted of a Class E felony even if he did not have sexual intercourse with the teenager. If Taylor is found to have engaged in oral sex with the girl, as has been suggested, he could be guilty of "oral sexual conduct or anal sexual conduct with a person less than seventeen years old."

Taylor was arrested last week and charged with third-degree rape and third-degree patronizing of a prostitute, the latest scandal to befall Taylor's tumultuous adult life. Another man, who allegedly kidnapped the child prostitute, is charged with a federal child sex trafficking crime.

Robert Pattinson Talks Rap Career

He’s beginning to do press for the upcoming film “Eclipse,” and Robert Pattinson paid a visit to the “Oprah Winfrey Show” this week along with Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart.

When asked how he ditches his English accent for Edward Cullen’s American dialect, Rob explained it’s not hard because he used to aspire to be a rapper and listened to a lot of American rap music.

"I used to want to be a rapper when I was, like, 14. I grew up watching American movies and stuff."

As for the overwhelming popularity that has come with the “Twilight” films, Pattinson explained, "It's a great position to be in because you can walk into a room and everybody's screaming. It's not really about you. So, it never really goes to your head and you can kind of participate in it. It's about the fans themselves. A lot of people, they just like doing Twilight-related things."

The Verge: Rami Malek

Just when you thought you had a handle on HBO’s WWII miniseries The Pacific, along came Rami Malek to mess with your expectations. As the war-ravaged Merriell “Snafu” Shelton, Malek is haunting and morally ambiguous, with a Cajun drawl that’s creepy one moment and heartbreaking the next. It isn’t just the character, though; Malek seems to operate on an entirely different wavelength from the other actors, with an interest in discovering unique cadences and behavior that has helped to make his past roles as a suicide bomber on this season of 24 and a gay teen in The War at Home just as memorable.

As The Pacific draws to a close, Movieline spoke to the 28-year-old actor about how difficult the miniseries has been to shake, and what’s next for him in the Tom Hanks-directed Larry Crowne.

Tyler Lambert, Son of Dana Plato, Commits Suicide

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tyler Lambert, son of 'Diff'rent Strokes' star Dana Plato, committed suicide on May 6, almost exactly 11 years after his mother ended her life. Lambert was 25.

The Tulsa, Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told PopEater that Lambert (pictured in 1999) died from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. Toxicology tests are pending. Though the office had no more information at this time, the National Enquirer alleges Lambert suffered depression surrounding the anniversary of his mother's death and descended into a drug binge prior to his suicide.

In reports from a not-yet-online National Enquirer piece, Lambert's grandmother said, "Tyler wanted to be with his mother. His father Lanny (Lambert, Plato's ex-husband) is devastated."

Dana Plato committed suicide with prescription pills on May 8, 1999. She was 36 years old. In 2006, a 21-year-old Lambert filed a $20,000 wrongful death lawsuit against Plato's former fiance, claiming he contributed to Plato's death by "not giving immediate medical assistance or contacting medical personnel," court documents stated.


Sean Penn Ordered to Anger Management

Sean Penn will have to be on his best behavior for the next three years.

The Oscar-winning actor pleaded no contest Wednesday to misdemeanor vandalism stemming from a tussle with paparazzi last year. Penn, who was not present, entered the plea through his attorney in a Los Angeles court.

Penn, 49, was sentenced to three years probation and 36 hours of anger management sessions as part of a plea deal with prosecutors. One count of battery was dropped. Any brushes with the law during his probation term could potentially send him in jail.

The Adjustment Bureau Trailer

Adapted from Philip K Dick’s short story The Adjustment Team (albeit very loosely, since a direct version would be more like an episode of The Twilight Zone), the plot finds Damon as ambitious political type David Norris, who seems destined for greatness and the US senate.

But then he meets ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Blunt), and, as you might expect, falls for her. Soon, however, he’s up against the mysterious agents of fate known as the Adjustment Bureau – fedora-topped types who claim to move the chess pieces of the world around to a pre-assigned plan. And David’s relationship with Elise is interrupting their carefully designed scheme…

Cue a tough decision – does David let her go and see both their futures secured, or does he try to hang on to his love and risk their lives.


Timothy Olyphant Replaces Shartlo Copley in I Am Number Four

Timothy Olyphant to replace Sharlto Copley in I Am Number Four
We reported last month that Sharlto Copley was in talks to star in a new D.J. Caruso sci-fi film and now it seems he has dropped out of the project and a replacement has been found. Variety is reporting that Justified star Timothy Olyphant will be replacing Copley in I Am Number Four.

It was said that Copley was forced to bow out of the role due to scheduling conflicts with his upcoming press commitments to his new film, The A-Team, which is due in theaters on June 11.

The film is based off the young-adult novel series by James Frey and Jobie Hughes. The story centers around nine alien teens who leave their home planet, right before it was destroyed, for Earth, disguised as regular American teenagers. They then discover that they're being hunted by their enemy on Earth.

Olyphant will play Henri, the guardian of Number Four (Alex Pettyfer). Kevin Durand will play the alien enemy that is pursuing them while Teresa Palmer will play Number Six, Dianna Agron will play Sarah, the Earth girl that falls for Number Four and Callan McAuliffe will portray Number Four's new best friend.

D.J. Caruso is directing from the adapted script by Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar and Marti Noxon. No production schedule was released for the film.

I Am Number Four comes to theaters February 18th, 2011 and stars Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Kevin Durand, Dianna Agron, Teresa Palmer, Callan McAuliffe. The film is directed by D.J. Caruso.



Paris Hilton Gives Up Fast Food For Summer Of Yachting

Paris Hilton's summer plans have prompted her to work out and eat right. She dished about her new fitness regime:

"I've been really working out. I'm not eating fast food anymore,"
"No more McDonalds, In-N-Out done," she added. "[I'm] getting my bikini body, so I'm about that."

Her summer plans are the reason behind the hurry to be bikini ready:

"I'm just going to be on a yacht. Summer must have? A yacht," said Hilton, who is heading to the Cannes Film Festival this week. "I'm going to St. Tropez, Monaco. I'll be working as well, but a lot of relaxing."

Wow, I guess I need to get that on my "summer must have" list. Right after I finish paying off that new private jet I ordered.
Paris is going to enjoy her summer as a single woman.

Ke$ha > Everyone

Ke$ha this week becomes the first "lead artist" to sell 1 million or more copies of three songs in 2010. "Your Love Is My Drug" tops the 1 million mark in paid downloads this week. "TiK ToK" and "Blah Blah Blah" (featuring 3OH!3) have also sold more than 1 million copies this year. Ludacris has also sold 1 million or more copies of three songs in 2010, but he was the lead artist on just one of those entries ("How Low"). He was the featured artist on Justin Bieber's "Baby" and Taio Cruz's "Break Your Heart."

Ke$ha re-teams with 3OH!3 on the new "My First Kiss," but this time 3OH!3 has top billing and she is the featured artist. The song sold 190,000 copies this week and enters Hot Digital Songs at #4.


P.E. Heartbreak: Travie McCoy

At some point, dudes with decks started trumping guys with pecks. For us Honey chicks, the lanky, loose-lobed skater with a tapestry of tatts earns more cool points than the retardedly-ripped, Gatorade-guzzling athlete (So not mad at you, though, TO). I mean, come on — isn’t a trip to the skate park way more exciting than getting lost in a gang of groupies at All-Star weekend?

Exactly. That’s how 28-year-old Travie McCoy, the gorgeously-etched frontman of hip-pop collective, Gym Class Heroes managed to kickflip his way into our hearts. You gotta love a guy who wears his heart on his sleeve (better yet, his throat) and his idols on his hands (Hall is tatted on his left and Oates on his right). And yeah, he has a habit of making goofy faces but we know it’s only to mask his sexy.

We supported him through his blog-bled battle with addiction, cringed through his overly publicized breakup with Katy Perry and cheered when he jumped a racist prick at one of his shows. And now that he’s venturing into solo territory with Lazarus (Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen Records) on June 8th, he’s even more fun to listen to than look at. We’re crazy amped to experience his menage of reggae, punk-pop, and R&B. Verdict: We’d hit the nearest skate ramp and grind on Travie’s rail any day.

neighbors call cops on ciara; ciara debuts new song in parking lot

Singer CIARA had a brush with cops on Tuesday night (11May10) when a playback of her new songs prompted complaints from local residents.

The Goodies hitmaker was celebrating a pal's birthday in Los Angeles when they decided to continue the party in a nearby parking lot. Ciara insisted it was the perfect time to unveil her latest recordings to her friends - but their raucous reactions resulted in a visit from police officers.

In a series of posts on her blog, she writes, "Tonight was sooo much fun!! I originally had plans to go to the Victoria Secret (sic) party, but that changed (at the) last minute... and I headed to celebrate my friend's birthday party! It was sooo much fun, and the funny thing to top it off was we all decided to go to a parking lot and play a few of the newest songs I recorded and we realized (sic) we had the music just a little too loud because the police came by and said they had received reports of loud music!! But thank God we had the music down in time, and there was no trouble with the po po (police)."

And the singer even managed to charm the two cops into posing for pictures: "We actually ended up taking photos together!!... Here's a pic of me and the police officers. Thought it (would) be fun to share my night with u (sic)!"

That was fast! Lost has yet to air its final episode, but Evangeline Lilly has already landed a role in a sci-fi movie alongside Hugh Jackman and Anthony Mackie, according to Variety.

Real Steel, directed by Shawn Levy (Date Night, Night at the Museum), stars Jackman as an ex-fighter in a world where boxers are replaced by giant robots that compete in gladiator style battles. Lilly will play one of his friends, while Mackie will play a boxing promoter.

The film — produced by Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump) — is based on the short story by Richard Matheson that was adapted into a classic episode of The Twilight Zone starring Lee Marvin.


The King of the World ain't No Diva

He is a world famous star but Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't do diva fits, even when people do not recognize him.

At a premiere of Iron Man 2 that DiCaprio and girlfriend Bar Refaeli were attending, some people asked the couple to move out of their seats.

Instead of throwing a fit, the star, under a hat, and his girlfriend, moved to another seat – three times.

Even as the trailer for his new movie, Inception, began playing, they were asked to move yet again, and the Titanic star obliged silently, smiling at the irony of it all.

"He clearly didn't realize you could reserve seats. During the previews, Leo and his group were asked to move three times. Then, as the trailer for his new movie, Inception, began playing, they were asked to move again. They were gracious, [and] Leo was smiling at the irony of it," The New York Post quoted a source as saying.

They finally sat in the front row.

Why Lady Gaga is musically better than Madonna .

Okay, so Lady Gaga is no John Lennon when it comes to song lyrics, but before you dismiss her linguistic abilities, remember the Beatles wrote only about kissing and holding hands in the infancy of their musical career. Lennon’s poetic, haunting prose came much later on when he had matured as a songwriter/musician.

Now comparisons between Lady Gaga and Madonna are inevitable. Both are of Italian heritage, both struggled early in their careers, and both blasted onto the musical scene with mega-hit singles.

Scarlett works out , hasn't seen Iron Man 2 yet (no hot hubby included this time)

If "Iron Man 2" fans heading to the theater are hoping to see what MTV News has dubbed "the repulsor moment" in the flick, they may be disappointed to find that the scene didn't make the final cut. Those in need of a refresher can watch what we alluded to, at the 2:13 mark, in the trailer that premiered in March.

But moviegoers aren't the only ones in the dark about the moment in question. "A repulsor? Oh, yeah. ... It's not in the film?" Scarlett Johansson said when MTV News asked her about the now-deleted scene. "Am I with Robert [Downey Jr.]? I don't know. I have not yet seen the film, so I'll be looking out for that.

"But there is a scene where Natalie is sort of cozying up to Tony, and I do have that repulsor, as you call it," she said of her character, Natalie Romanoff, a.k.a. the Black Widow. "There was a moment where there was a little bit of repulsion, a jolt of some kind. Maybe it didn't make it into the movie, I don't know."

Although that particularly explosive scene didn't make the film, Johansson relished in the action scenes that did. "It was a bit daunting at first, especially when I was watching whatever Tom Harper, our stunt coordinator, had cut together, these sequences that he was planning and choreographing," Johansson recalled. "It was like, 'I'm going to be doing that in how many months?' It just seemed like it'd be really painful. And it was. It all paid off in the end."

Abadah still breaking records- haters still crying

In less than three weeks, James Cameron's "Avatar" has become the best-selling title ever in a comparable period, with almost 20 million copies sold worldwide. The film has also sold 6.2 million Blu-ray units, which is 31% of its disc sales (both DVD and Blu-ray). Usually Blu-ray represents only 7%-12% of all sales.

To show how impressive these numbers are, "The Dark Knight" took 18 months to sell 2.5 million Blu-ray units. "Avatar" sold 2.7 million units in just the first four days.

Overseas, "Avatar" surpassed "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" as the bestselling title since it launched on DVD.

And given the speed at which "Avatar" has achieved record-breaking sales, coupled with special editions still to come (a 3D version is being planned), the movie could potentially become the highest-selling DVD of all time. Disney's "Finding Nemo" currently holds the record with approximately 40 million copies sold since November 2003.

Trailer, poster, & clip for Joan Rivers documentary

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"Can we talk?" We get to see Joan Rivers open up for the cameras both behind the scenes and on stage for her new documentary, "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" with the first official trailer hitting the web. The 76-year-old working comedian, who helped pave the way for the likes of Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler, openly discusses the highs and lows in both her career and her personal life in the film produced by IFC and Break Thru.

Abrasive, witty and intriguing, Rivers has made a career for more than forty years out of poking fun at herself, her looks and at others. In the 1980s, she was quite vocal about her various plastic surgery operations which made her an easy target for jokes and backlash. Since then she has guest-hosted "The Tonight Show," had her own TV program, toured the world, created a brand in her likeness and made millions of people laugh. Directors Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg wanted to go beyond the hype on Rivers' public persona and get into what it takes for a 76-year-old comedian to thrive. They followed her for a year in her life, right at the perfect time as her career had just received a massive jolt from her participation in "Celebrity Apprentice," and she was faced with a great deal of backlash after "protecting" her daughter Melissa on the program and speaking her mind, most of the time at the expense of her fellow contestants.

The film, which has been getting rave reviews at festival appearances, seems to delve far beyond Rivers' stage persona. We watch as Rivers stares at an empty calendar discussing how the ladies she helped create have taken away her club dates, and what she needs to do to get back on top. We also get to see a day in the life of a successful comedian who, no matter what she says about herself, has built a career on making others laugh at her own insecurities. As a fan of her comedy, it's impressive to see such a deep portrait of the woman and the comedian, who at one point was a living embodiment of her own caricature. Rivers prides herself on having a successful career and being a mother, and paving the way for women to succeed more easily in a one-time male-only industry.

Never one to shy away or back down from a fight, Rivers is constantly called out on her "goes there" behavior and says, "there is always an adjective in front of my name and it's never a nice one". Check out the trailer for "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work," which hits theaters on June 11th. Break Thru Films has a full list of the screenings for the film that will take place throughout the summer on their site.

two living hip hop legends to join hands once again

Superstar rappers Eminem and Jay-Z will play a Comerica Park show in September, the pair announced tonight.

As reported earlier by the Free Press, the Sept. 2 blockbuster show is part of a two-concert stand that will include a Sept. 13 date at New York's Yankee Stadium -- a home-and-home series for Detroit's Eminem and New York's Jay-Z.

Eminem will headline the Comerica Park show, with Jay-Z in that slot for the New York date.

The two announced the concerts live on ESPN during the third inning of tonight's game between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees at Comerica Park.

"We had talked about doing something together again soon anyway," Eminem told ESPN's Dave O'Brien and Rick Sutcliffe. "We just tried to come up with the best way and biggest way to do it."

Ticket on-sale information is not yet available.

It’s as star-powered a match-up as they come: Eminem and Jay-Z, two of the top-selling music acts of the past decade, were ranked No. 1 and 2 respectively in Vibe magazine's Best Rapper Alive poll in 2008.

The Detroit-New York stand marks the biggest collaboration yet between the two. Eminem was a guest on Jay-Z's 2001 track "Renegade."

"We've done things together -- smaller shows and whatnot," said Eminem. "But I'm not sure we've ever done anything this big."

Said Jay-Z: "I look for opportunities to work with Em, any time we get a chance to collaborate on things."

The Comerica Park show will be Eminem's first hometown concert since an August 2005 date at the same ballpark. That also turned out to be his final concert appearance for more than four years, as he slipped out of public view and into semi-retirement.

The Detroit and New York shows will follow a string of European performances for Eminem this summer, accompanying the June release of his "Recovery" album. No other U.S. dates have been announced.

Jay-Z has played a pair of Michigan shows in recent months, including a March date at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Eminem had hinted at the coming news with an overnight post on Twitter, including a cryptic double entendre that turned out to be baseball-related: "The announcement is tomorrow. It's gonna be a big 'hit.'"

The pair moved over to the Fox Sports Detroit booth for a chat with Detroit Tigers announcers Rod Allen and Mario Impemba during the top of the fourth inning.

Eminem had earlier told the ESPN crew that he was easing back into life as a baseball fan.

"I had stepped away from baseball for years," he said. "I'm getting back into it now, getting reacquainted with who's who.... My whole career, everything's been so busy, but when I get a chance to catch up with sports, I do."

While Eminem remained in a luxury suite, Jay-Z departed during the fifth inning, quickly signing autographs on the Montcalm sidewalk before hopping into a Cadillac Escalade bound for the airport.

Ryan Gosling, at Cannes With Blue Valentine, Tells Which Children’s Classic Is ‘the Worst’

Writer-director Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine was one of the few bona fide hits of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Now it’s headed to Cannes for a worldwide premiere that may help solidify the critical buzz surrounding its perfectly matched stars, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, and possibly position the film for an Oscar run this fall. The film is told through two time periods of a couple: The glory days of early romance and the devolving, bickering morass of late marriage. We spoke with Gosling about how he and Michelle Williams improvised for a full month while Cianfrance’s cameras rolled — and why he thinks The Giving Tree is “so fucked up.”

ABC's "V" Climbs/Preview for Season Finale

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

UPDATED: ABC's "V" -- on the bubble for a renewal and approaching the finish line for the season -- climbed in the ratings Tuesday night.

"V" (5.7 million viewers, 2.3 adults 18-49 rating) rose 10% in the rating. Not a large bump, yet showing any uptick at this crucial stage could help seal a second season pickup. "V" is already favored for a renewal over fellow ABC freshman sci-fi drama "FlashForward," which also recently improved, but has a lower overall ratings base. Lead-in "Lost" (10.3 million, 4.1) was up a tenth. ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" (12.5 million, 2.5) changed course, rising 4%.

"V" was one of several shows to demonstrate improvement last night despite the NBA playoffs continuing to draw viewers on cable.

Brody Jenner: Spencer Pratt Has "Lost It"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Brody Jenner thinks his former best friend Spencer Pratt has gone off the deep end.

"I actually think he's kind of lost it a little bit," Jenner, 26, said on the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning radio show Wednesday.

The new issue of Us Weekly reports Pratt, 26, has major rage issues. On the May 11 episode of The Hills, he had a violent outburst after Heidi's sister Holly confronted him about a crude remark he made about their mother being "just a vagina."

Said Jenner, "Lately, it's hard for me -- even as someone who used to be best friends with him -- to see what's real and what's not as far as he goes... I see he wants attention."

Jenner also said Pratt "got all crazy with those crystals," on which Us Weekly has reported the Pratts have spent $400,000.

Us Weekly also reports that the couple are in "panic mode" about losing their source of income because neither has taped since Mid-April. (Spencer was suspended from the MTV hit after threatening to kill a producer; Heidi's role was reduced after she objected to a faux-divorce story line.)

A source tells Us Weekly show creator Adam DiVello "said he doesn't think Heidi and Spencer will come back for the series finale."

Casting Call

Jamie Foxx in HORRIBLE BOSSES; Vega, Dafoe, Isaac, and Rodriguez Join THE JESUIT; McGregor, Blunt, and Thomas Go SALMON FISHING IN YEMEN

We have three pieces of casting news for you (and likely more on the way because of the deals being made at the Cannes Film Festival right now). Leading off, Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, and Kristen Scott Thomas will star in Lasse Hallstrom’s Salmon Fishing in Yemen, written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). Since THR doesn’t say what the movie’s about, I’ll move on to the casting on films where we can give you something more substantial.

First up, Jamie Foxx has signed on to Seth Gordon’s dark comedy Horrible Bosses. Also, Paz Vega will star in Paul Schrader’s The Jesuit with Willem Dafoe, Oscar Isaac, and Michelle Rodriguez in final negotiations to join. For more on both of these projects, hit the jump.

According to Just Jared, Jamie Foxx will co-star in the flick. As we reported yesterday, Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia). Directed by Seth Gordon (The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters), three best friends who decide to kill each other’s bosses. To elaborate, here’s what we said in our earlier story:

Jason Bateman will play a man who believes his hard work will be rewarded but when he gets passed over for a promotion, he hits rock bottom. Charlie Day plays a hapless guy, always in the wrong place at the wrong time. A part still to be cast is a ladies’ man who is good at his job, but gets a rude awakening when his boss passes away and gets replaced.

As we reported earlier in the week, Colin Farrell is also on board to co-star as one of the sleazy bosses. But you have to love a comedy that sounds like it’s based off Strangers on a Train. The cast is shaping up to be pretty great and Steve says he’s heard good things about the script, so this is definitely one to keep on your radar.

Then there’s The Jesuit. Variety reports that the film centers on “a man nicknamed “the Jesuit,” who is imprisoned for a crime he didn’t commit. When his wife is murdered and his son kidnapped and taken to Mexico, he devises an elaborate and dangerous plan to rescue his son and avenge the murder.” Paz Vega (The Spirit) is officially on board and Willem Dafoe, Michelle Rodriguez, and Oscar Isaac (who is one of the few bright spots in Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood) are in final negotiations to co-star. This would be the sixth time Dafoe happened in a Paul Schrader film (seventh if you count The Last Temptation of Christ, which Schrader wrote but didn’t direct)

A Videogame Post -- Adam Sandler/Pixels edition

Stunning 'Pixels' Scaling Up To Big Screen, Says Report

Patrick Jean's amazing short film Pixels, which documents the 8-bit destruction of New York City by Donkey Kong, Frogger, Space Invader and Vaus from Arkanoid, may be coming to a theater near you, thanks to Adam Sandler.

Deadline reports that Sandler's production company Happy Madison has purchased the rights to Pixels and that Columbia Pictures may develop the short into a feature film.
Jean said in an interview last month with Motionographer that he's been "contacted by several major feature studios to develop the project further." Happy Madison, by the way, is the production studio responsible for cinematic classics like Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Paul Blart: Mall Cop and You Don't Mess With The Zohan.

Adding more weight to the report are new domain registrations from Sony Pictures, the home of Columbia, dug up by URL-finding powers of Mr. Superannuation. Sony is squatting on various Pixels movie domains, proving it is at least that serious about getting the film made.

Deadline notes that the big screen adaptation of Pixels would be filmed in 3D, naturally, as any good movie should.
