Jesse McCartney, Gregory Raposo, Matthew Ballinger, Frankie Galasso, and Chris Trousdale were the faces of Dream Street. Their debut album was released in 2001 and was certified Gold in the US by the RIAA peaking #1 on Billboard's Independent Albums chart and at #37 on The Billboard 200. The final Dream Street release was the soundtrack album to the released 2002 film The Biggest Fan starring former Dream Street member Chris Trousdale. In 2002, the managers of Dream Street wanted the boys to quit school and focus entirely on the band. The parents then had a legal dispute over this and took the managers to court. The parents won the lawsuit and the boys were never allowed to perform with each other again as part of the agreement.

Mel Gibson is caught on tape admitting that he hit the mother of his love child, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
It’s another bombshell development, following our world exclusive when we revealed that Mel was taped spewing a vile, racist rant, telling Oksana Grigorieva, "You look like a f***ing pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault."
Now, RadarOnline.com is revealing even more content from the tape and this time Mel admits to hitting Oksana twice in the face while she was holding their baby daughter Lucia.
On tape, a teary Oksana is heard asking Mel, “What kind of a man is that who would hit a woman when she is holding a child in her hands, hitting her twice in the face?
“What kind of a man is that?” the Russian musician repeats.

It’s just been five months since the release of her signature scent “Kim Kardashian”, and the sexy bombshell already announced the upcoming fragrance on her website:
“I am so excited to tell you guys that my second fragrance will launch in February of 2011!!!!! I wanted to let you guys know here first so you can all share the excitement with me.”
There’s no word on how it’s gonna smell yet, but Kim revealed in her site that she’s currently busy shooting the ad campaign for the new fragrance.
“I’m at the commercial shoot now and cannot wait to get all glammed up! Look at these amazing dresses I get to choose from!”
The Kardashians have been known for their success in clothing business. Will fragrance be their next huge thing? We’ll see!
Newly-engaged actor Orlando Bloom has joined the list of sweet smelling studs fronting a fragrance campaign after landing the role as the face of Hugo Boss’ new cologne.
BOSS Orange is the label’s follow-up to the wildly-successful feminine scent, which was fronted by Sienna Miller when it was launched in Europe last year.
“BOSS Orange is a brand I immediately identified with because it has a laid back, spontaneous quality I relate to,” the actor, 33, said in a release Tuesday.

Sheriff Deals with Paparazzi at Lindsay’s Apartment
July 7, 2010 at 9:31 pm
West Hollywood Sheriff’s deputies were called to Lindsay Lohan’s apartment building this afternoon and were questioning photographers outside, according to X17online.
Sergeant Conner at the West Hollywood Sheriffs station told X17online: “We had a call related to the paparazzi outside the building. Apparently someone tried to rush the building but it turned out to be a non-event.”
According to Weho Daily records, the call was dispatched at 3:53pm.
X17 reports that it wasn’t only paparazzi there, but mainstream media as well.
Weho Daily swung by there tonight at about 10PM and they were still around, clumped under some trees on the sidewalk across the street from the building, and some are idling the time away around the corner, where a news van with an extended broadcast dish sits.
An employee of the 7-Eleven store nearby reported that a paparazzi asked if he could scale the billboard pole in the parking lot to see if he could get shots into her building across the street. They said no to the request.
UPDATE: Sheriff was just dispatched back to the location at 10:45pm on a report that they were being “unruly and loud” — we’re unsure if the neighbors are just fed up in general, or if she is on the move causing them to frenzy. They called in parking enforcement to ticket and possibly tow the numerous pap cars parked illegally in the residential permit zone.

It's true. The 88-year-old actress is posing for her own 2011 calendar. Some of the photos are archival, others are Betty with animals and more than one month features Betty posing with shirtless, beefcake-type men.
The Betty White Calendar costs $12.99 and will go on sale in September.
Royalties will go to the Morris Animal Foundation where White serves as a trustee.
In May, White became the oldest person to host Saturday Night Live. She's co-starring in the new TV Land original sitcom, Hot in Cleveland, which airs Wednesdays.
Lindsay Lohan took to her Twitter account on Wednesday to calm the furor over a profane message on one of her fingernails. The troubled actress explained that having the words "f--- U" inscribed on the nail of her middle finger on Tuesday was just a joke and not meant to insult Judge Marsha Revel, who sentenced her to 90 days in jail and 90 days of in-patient rehab for a probation violation. "Didn't we do our nails as a joke with our friend DC?" she tweeted. "It had nothing to do w/court. It's an airbrush design from a stencil xx."
While some legal experts have speculated that Lohan could get a few extra days in jail tacked on for contempt of court in the incident, Revel has not made any comments on the gesture so far. Attorney Scott Leemon told MTV News that the four-letter salute from Lohan was mostly just poor form and childish nonsense that could come back to bite her. "Is it a crazy move? I don't think she thought anyone could catch on, and I don't think it had any part in the decision that was made [by Judge Revel]," said Leemon, a New York lawyer who is not involved in Lohan's case but who has logged time in court representing 50 Cent, Young Buck, Busta Rhymes, Young Jeezy and Tony Yayo. "But it won't be good if she has to come in front of her again for another violation."
Just hours after Lohan begged for leniency and pleaded with Revel that she was taking her probation seriously, still images of the profanity on her nail began to surface and questions arose about whom the message was intended for. Lohan also used her Twitter to vent about the sentence she received, which a number of legal experts told MTV News seemed harsh for Lohan's probations violations. Her tweets quoted Article 5 of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, which states, "No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment."
She followed that with a comment about an article referring to U.S. sentencing guidelines and how their 15th anniversary passed with no "celebrations, parades, or other festivities in honor of this punishment scheme created by Congress and the U.S. Sentencing Commission. ... Instead, the day passed like most others during the last 15: scores of federal defendants sentenced under a constitutionally perverted system that saps moral judgment through its mechanical rules." She also provided a link to a story about Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a 43-year-old Iranian mother of two who is scheduled to be stoned to death for adultery.
Lohan was ordered to surrender to the court to begin her jail term on July 20. She is expected to serve around 25 percent of her time, which means she could end up behind bars for a minimum of 23 days. Lohan's lawyer could not be reached for comment on the controversy over the nail message.

“Even better news for fans is that, should this come to pass, Judge plans on retaining the show’s original ghetto-tech aesthetic, right down to the faded color palatte. The source also reveals that the Extract director intends on keeping B and B’s format identical to its original sketch-videos-sketch incarnation, but with more contemporary music clips for the cartoon slacker-duo to skewer…”

Montreal filmmaker Jacob Tierney certainly got folks talking on Tuesday. In a piece in La Presse - click ici to read it - the director of The Trotsky slams Quebec cinema for being too white-bread, too pure-laine, and too homegenous.
“Quebec society is extremely turned in on itself. Our art and our culture shows only white francophones. Anglophones and immigrants are ignored. They have no place in the québécois dream. It’s shameful.”
“I was born in Quebec, I speak French, but for the people, that doesn’t change anything: I will always be perceived as the Outsider. Some people tell me I can always move to Toronto, but I don’t want to go to Toronto! Montreal is home!”
His point, which is right on the money, is that mainstream franco cinema here all-too-often ignores anglos, immigrants and most anyone who isn't old-stock francophone.
The comments have already ignited quite a bit of chatter. I was invited to talk about it on the Premiere Chaine's noon-time phone-in show - I was the token bloke, I guess standing in for M. Tierney, who declined the invitation to explain his comments (which were made to a La Presse reporter in Los Angeles covering the premiere there of The Trotsky). The article from La Presse elicited all kinds of comments, which you can see after the article on cyberpresse, and most of the folks writing in clearly disagree rather vehemently with Tierney.
As usual, depressingly enough, cyberpresse readers are accusing Tierney of Quebec-bashing, pulling out all the usual stuff about how we must talk only about white francophones because this is a minority culture drowning in a sea of anglophone oppression. La Presse columnist Stephane Laporte has already posted a response to Tierney - click here to read it - and Laporte says "il n'y a rien de scandaleux qu'il raconte avant tout notre histoire" (there is nothing scandalous that our cinema tells first and foremost our own history). The problem with that statement is that anglos and allos are in fact part of our history.
To me, it's just weird that so few Quebecois films give a real sense of what life is really like here in Montreal (which is where the vast majority of these films take place). No one here lives exclusively in one language or one culture. And to make that point is not Quebec-bashing. It's just telling the truth, as unpleasant at that might be.

The takeover, the break is indeed over. As you may've read about over the last week, I've got a new band called Black Cards. When FOB went on hiatus, I wasn't really sure what to do with myself. I know I wanted to keep travelling the world with my family. We had been to Jamaica recently. I spent a lot of time hanging around the beaches and I started to get inspired again by songs like "two sevens clash" and "warriors". I'd never heard any of these songs but could imagine them having an everlasting imprint, like people would dance to this stuff forever. I could feel these songs really meant something. Not just in Jamaica but globally, crossing through culture and language. I started collaborating via email with my friend Sam, who I knew from working on "As Cruel as School Children". He had been listening to a lot of old British stuff and we mashed that with the island vibe in the studio. I wanted to try a female vocalist cos I couldn't imagine trying to replace Patrick. Combine all this with my nonsense and ideas. Stuff I could never write or never had a perspective to write from in FOB.
Check out some of what we've been working here at www.blackcardsmusic.com. I know this won't be for everyone but honestly its a chance for me to try something different. I remain Fall Out Boy's #1 fan.
If you can still call him a douche after his choice to go with a female vocalist, I just don't know what to think about you. Also it's unclear who else is in the band, except this person Sam that he mentions in the post and Craig Owens who posted a video with a song a few days ago. Added the tags, sorry about that mods

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly angling for $1 million for her first post-jail interview, and going to prison could end up boosting sales of her clothing line, too. "Financially, it's the best thing that could have ever happened to Lindsay."
Lately, Lindsay's main sources of income have been paid appearances and tweeting for cash, which pay no more than a few thousand a pop. But jailhouse confessions? Those are really worth something. Paris Hilton was reportedly offered $1 million for hers. (But ultimately gave it away for free to Larry King.) Popeater's Rob Shuter reports,
"Expect to see a major TV and magazine deal," a source close to Lindsay tells me. "Lindsay might have made a lot of mistakes, but she knows how much her first interview is worth. She won't even consider offers of less than $1 million."
Of course, they won't literally be paying for the interview—as is de rigueur for American checkbook journalism, she will technically be paid for some sort of primary material (video confessionals?) so the interview can remain "unpaid."
Meanwhile, Women's Wear Daily's Marcy Medina reports that retailers are stocking up on apparel from Lindsay's 6126 leggings line.
"Lindsay has mind share right now, so people will be interested to see what the merchandise looks like," said Jeff Vansinderen, a senior retail analyst at B. Riley & Co. "Times are tough right now in the retail environment and if I'm a retailer, I'm going to put the merchandise out there and try to sell it."
"This is a hard incident, and we don't know how the consumer is going to react," said Fraser Ross, owner of Kitson stores, who ordered about $15,000 worth of 6126 apparel for this month. He acknowledged that Lohan could get out of jail in as few as 23 days "as the clothes are hitting stores and there will be interest in her."
Once she has all her post-prison money, LiLo can blow it all on a massive coke bender, go to jail for that, give more interviews and reap more profits, and—whoops! Looks like we've fallen into a vortex of infinite regression, degradation, and debauchery. This process is also known as "show business."
Mel Gibson Hurls ANOTHER Racist Slur: Wetbacks

"I will report her to the f**king people that take f**king money from the wetbacks," he said.

Some hot music-business news from The Land Down Under: Larrikin Music, the Australian publishing company that holds the rights to the old campfire favorite “Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree,” just successfully won five percent of Men at Work’s royalties for the song “Down Under.” Larrikin alleges that the flute part in Men at Work’s international hit and de facto Australian pop anthem too closely mimics “Kookaburra,” which was written by a now-deceased schoolteacher over 70 years ago.
On Tuesday, Jacobson ordered Men at Work's recording company, EMI Songs Australia, and "Down Under" songwriters Colin Hay and Ron Strykert, to pay 5 percent of royalties earned from the song since 2002 and from its future earnings. A statute of limitations restricted Larrikin from seeking royalties earned before 2002. The court didn't specify what the 5 percent penalty translates to in dollars.
Larrikin initially sought 60 percent of royalties, but the judge seemed to agree with EMI’s claim that that was a bit steep. EMI is, of course, filing an appeal.

Hans Christian Anderson’s The Little Mermaid is best known in cinematical terms these days as the Disney musical featuring singing crabs and a happy-go-lucky undersea princess who wins the heart of the human prince she loves. But if Working Title and Atonement/The Soloist director Joe Wright have any say in the matter, a very different version will be headed for our screens.
The production company and the director are teaming up for the first ever English-language live action take on the tale, which will follow the young mermaid’s quest to give up her life under the ocean to live with the human she falls for.
Though chances are it could harken back to the darker themes of Anderson’s original 1837 plot, we’re not sure it’ll delve too far, since Wright’s take will be inspired by a children’s puppet theatre production staged by the Little Angel Company in London.
Abi Morgan, who last wrote the script for Brick Lane, has been tasked with turning the story into a screenplay.
Wright, meanwhile, is finishing up work on assassin drama Hanna, with Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana and Cate Blanchett. Wonder if Ronan might be among the actresses considered to play the mermaid in the new movie?

Prince refuses to use digital platforms to distribute his music. But Kenny G says he will do what it takes to stay connected, especially since he just released a new album, the R&B-flavored "Heart & Soul."
America’s most squeaky-clean teens may start popping up in your mailbox: Archie, Betty, and Veronica of the beloved Archie Comics series are being honored with their very own postage stamp.
The Riverdale High trio will join fellow comic-strip legends Beetle Bailey, Calvin and Hobbes, Garfield, and Dennis the Menace as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s new Sunday Funnies commemorative stamps. The stamps will debut July 16 with a first-day-of-issue ceremony in Columbus, Ohio.
Each of the stamps features the funny-page stars completely in character: lazy Private Beetle Bailey, who arrived on the scene in 1950, laughs as Sarge flips his lid; tot-and-tiger team Calvin and Hobbes, who premiered in 1985, make funny faces; 5-year-old Dennis the Menace, who has been stirring up trouble since 1951, runs off to wreak more havoc; and Garfield, born in 1978, stays true to his catty self by giving eager pooch Odie the cold shoulder.
As for Archie, the forever-17-year-old redhead who was created in 1941 and made his newspaper debut in 1946, is shown sharing a chocolate milkshake with his favorite blonde and brunette gal pals.
To coincide with the honor, issue #210 of the “Archie Double Digest" (which is now available), includes a story in which the Riverdale gang imagine what it would be like to be immortalized in stamp form.
Said Archie Comics publisher Jon Goldwater of the tribute, “The U.S. Postage Stamp signifies just how much Archie Comics and its fabled romantic and comedic adventures of Archie and friends continue to touch our hearts and make us all laugh out loud, not just on Sundays, but on each and every day."
After hearing reports that Rihanna’s concert, planned for July 28 at Philips Arena, was suffering poor ticket sales, we have now heard it has been canceled.
Our source is an insider who’s been working with promoters.
Rihanna was to have performed with Ke$ha.
It’s just the latest in a long string of summer concert cancelations. Here locally, 50 Cent was to have played the Tabernacle but scrapped the show, presumably due to low ticket sales. On Friday night, Liza Minnelli’s planned concert at Chastain Park Amphitheatre was scotched. The performer sent a statement saying that complications following knee surgery forced the move.
And Lilith Fair dropped its planned Aug. 8 date.
Rihanna’s concert is still listed on the Philips events calendar and the Live Nation Web site, although some of her other concerts are listed as “canceled” on the Live Nation site.

TMZ called Holley for comment on a story we're working on, and she informed us she is no longer repping Lindsay. Sources tell us Holley resigned earlier today.
As for who Lindsay will be hiring ... we're told she's a brand new lawyer, Tiffany Feder-Cohen, who was just admitted to the bar in November.
As for what Lindsay wants her to do ... stay tuned. We'll tell you shortly
Sources tell TMZ ... Lindsay Lohan vows to appeal Judge Marsha Revel's 90-day jail sentence.
One source who was with Lindsay last night says LiLo proclaimed, "I'm not going to jail!" Lindsay was talking with people in her apartment about appealing the case.
As for how Lindsay could appeal ... the only real basis is arguing that Judge Revel abused her discretion in nailing LiLo with a 90-day sentence. The chances of winning such an appeal are extremely remote under the best of circumstances, and given Lindsay's performance on probation ... snowballs and hell come to mind.
Lindsay's vow to appeal could explain why Shawn Chapman Holley just threw in the towel and resigned.
We're told Lohan's new attorney, Tiffany Feder-Cohen, has already been in touch with the Sheriff's Department.
Lady Gaga lives her life in costume.
It is a concept that 23-year-old blogger and Gaga fan Denise Kuan decided to channel on her website, EverydayGaga.com.
After Kuan dressed as the pop star for Halloween in 2009, she began a blog to show what it would be like to spend every day dressed up as the singer.
Kuan's website features photos of her doing everyday activities dressed in full-on Gaga attire - from cleaning the house to hula-hooping to taking out the trash.
"In a way, the posts every day are little tributes to Lady Gaga," Kuan told CBSNews.com. "...going about her everyday life in her own way, regardless of what people around her might think."
Under the "About" section of her blog, Kuan features a quote from Lady Gaga that shows her desire to always be dressed up.
"When I meet celebrities and they’re in casual clothes, I'm always like: 'Whaaat?' I don't mean to be judgmental, but it would do them better to be who they really are, all the time," she quoted the singer as saying. "This is really who I am all the time. When I get out of a car and there are 30 fans waiting for me, I know I’m dressed the way I should be. There's a reason they have that emotional reaction."
Enough! Blubbering, bawling mega boob Lindsay Lohan doesn't deserve a speck of your sympathy or support, nor a dollop of respect. What Linz desperately needs is a swift kick in the teeth, a foot in the backside and a broom with which to clean up her many messes, which I would not touch with a full-body condom.
She's finished. Over. Once, she was a role model for young ladies, the fresh-faced child star who entered our living rooms and movie theaters with heaps of promise and every opportunity known to man and the creator. Now, she poses a dangerous example to girls everywhere, proving that, with enough money, fame and drugs, one never has to take responsibility for one's behavior.
These days, she resembles something dragged in on the bottom of my shoe.
Even in LA, a town of second, third and 23rd chances, the pathologically spoiled, drug-addled skank finally went too far, which is saying a lot in a place where a judge kissed up to girl-beater Chris Brown, and a jury actually freed OJ Simpson.

Chris Brown is continuing his resurgence this week with word that he has been in the studio with Keyshia Cole. The 21-year-old broke the news about their collaboration in a recent Twitter update.
Brown tweeted: "In the studio wit Keyshia Cole . . . she says hello!!!!"
The collaboration is the most recent move by Brown, who has struggled to recover his career since pleading guilty to assault charges against his ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Last week, Brown also connected with hip-hop's man of the moment - Drake.
In a recent interview with Extra, Drake revealed that the two met up in the studio saying, "I've been working all night. I've just been in the studio. I was actually in the studio with Chris Brown for a little bit."
Usher's album is barely 4-months-old and he's already on to his next project.
The singer is releasing eight new songs on a new disc, "Versus," which will be out Aug. 24. The songs will also be released on a special deluxe version of "Raymond V. Raymond," which was released in March. That album includes hits like the No. 1 song "OMG."
Usher follows in the footsteps of Lady Gaga, who released "The Fame Monster" as a separate disc and also as a deluxe version of "The Fame" after the success of that album.
Gaga is not amused.
ONTD, are you unable to read? Usher is not ripping off Gaga by rereleasing the album. He is ripping her off by putting the rerelease's bonus songs out as their own album.
Kanye West and his model-girlfriend Amber Rose are taking a break, a source close to the rapper, 33, tells UsMagazine.com.
"They are still good friends," the source tells Us. "Kanye is consumed with recording his comeback record in Hawaii and had to shut it all off. When he's in work mode, he can't handle a relationship. He told Amber he needs to devote everything right now to his craft."
Rose, 27, isn't sulking.
Over the Fourth of July weekend, she was spotted making out with Kim Kardashian's ex Reggie Bush at Axe Lounge in NYC's The Hamptons -- as West's hit "Flashing Lights" blared from the speakers.
Nevertheless, a second source tells Us: "I wouldn't say it's over for good" for West and Rose. "It's always off-and-on when it's convenient for these two. He doesn't go out anymore and she loves it, so he lets her. I wouldn't be surprised if they are seen together again next week."
'Friday Night Lights' MVP Connie Britton on Emmy nod: 'There must be some mistake'
by Michael Ausiello
Shortly after Connie Britton learned that she’d finally scored an Emmy nomination for her impeccable work on Friday Night Lights, the lead-actress contender rang me up to share her reaction, as well as her feelings about the series’ imminent end. (She and the gang are—gulp!—just two weeks away from shooting the finale.) Now, I don’t wanna say she had to call me, although I did do everything but go door-to-door to ATAS voters’ houses to make sure they had checked her name on their ballots. Okay, she had to call me. There, I said it. Below, her thoughts:
Congrats! Can you believe it?
CONNIE BRITTON: It’s ridiculous.
I was worried they called your name by accident.
BRITTON: The first two calls I had this morning, I still was like, “Are you sure? There must be some mistake.”

Celine Dion is going to be surrounded by men!
The "My Heart Will Go On" singer, who announced she's expecting twins in November, is going to have two boys, Star has learned exclusively.
In May, Celine — who already has a 9-year-old son, René-Charles, with husband René Angélil, 68 — announced that she's pregnant with two bundles of joy thanks to her sixth attempt at in-vitro fertilization.
I was hoping for at least one girl, but I'm still excited! Yay for them!
Director Chris Columbus says he has learned that directors should consider the family ties of children who appear in their films.
Columbus, who directed Home Alone, the first two Harry Potter films, and Percy Jackson and Olympians The Lightning Thief , told the Coventry Telegraph Wednesday that he had "learned a big lesson way back when we did Home Alone " because he ended up casting Macaulay Culkin, whom he described as "a kid who truly had a troubled family life." As a result his celebrity didn't "work out for him," Columbus said. When he cast the Potter films, however, he had already come to the realization "that you really have to cast the family as well, and look at their parents, and those Potter kids have turned out pretty well."
I find this slightly rude... Mac's drama is way in the past. But this post has Culkins and Harry Potter, and is thus my favorite post.
Efron, Lautner: Dream Cast for Gay Grease Remake
Zac Efron and Taylor Lautner would be director Randal Kleiser’s choice to star in a gay remake of his blockbuster musical Grease.
In an interview with Gay.com, Kleiser, who has been out as a gay man most of his career, also says that out actors Sean Hayes and Neil Patrick Harris “are the role models of today, and probably the next generation will find more, because I think less and less people are getting uptight about being gay.”
A sing-along version of Kleiser’s 1978 hit musical romance that starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John will be shown Friday night at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and open in select theaters nationwide July 8.
Selena Gomez has revealed that she is a Cheryl Cole fan.
The 17-year-old - who is due to release her sophomore album in September - heard Cole's debut solo single 'Fight For This Love' during a promotional trip to the UK, reports OMG Music.
"Nobody in the States knows her, she’s amazing," she said. "I have her whole album (3 Words). I had to call her label and get a copy as they don’t sell it in the States.
"This is how obsessed I am with this girl… we’re on the same label and I was like [on the phone] ‘I NEED this album!"
Gomez had previously revealed that she would like to work with the Girls Aloud singer, who is currently being treated in hospital for malaria.

A bluffer's guide to Andrew Garfield

Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson has been at work assembling an adaptation of the novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy from author John Le Carre. A month ago we heard that Gary Oldman set to star, with possible co-stars Michael Fassbender, Colin Firth and David Thewlis.
Sadly, David Thewlis won’t be part of the lineup, but the other three names are now confirmed along with a new addition: Ralph Fiennes.
Variety says the film will shoot in London in October, but at this point we don’t have any new info about the script by Peter Morgan or the characters that will be associated with the cast.
The story has retired intelligence agent George Smiley (Gary Oldman) being called back to serve when a high-ranking member of MI6 is suspected of being a Soviet mole. I still hope that Le Carré and Morgan kept the jargon that was used in the novel; Le Carré called MI6 ‘the circus’, black bag ops were ’scalphunters’ and American agents were ‘the cousins’.
Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy has been adapted twice before: by the BBC for television in 1979 with Alec Guinness starring as George Smiley, and then by BBC Radio 4 in 1988. A 1982 BBC mini-series later adapted Smiley’s People (again with Guinness), the third book in the trilogy, but the middle chapter has never made it to screen. The shoes of Alec Guinness will be difficult to fill, and I’d initially hoped for someone like Bob Hoskins, but Gary Oldman could easily nail this, too.
Holy shit, this cast and this director! This just became one of my most anticipated films.

Exclusive: Chris Evans on Cap's new look
Chris Evans, as you might have guessed, is a very busy man. Not only is he coping with realization that he is, in fact, the new Captain America, but he’s also, you know, working and stuff. Still, we managed to catch him recently to give us a few words about the goings on in Camp Captain America: The First Avenger.
More specifically, about the costume and design challenges the team are facing, and just how Cap’s going to look – especially exciting considering the concept art leaked just last month.
"It’s an amazing costume. Given the fact that his costume is red, white and blue, and it’s tight, and it could be kind of flash and over the top – and given the fact that the movie takes place in the ‘40s and ‘50s – they’ve done a really good job of making it look really cool."
"I think everyone that’s going to see it is going to say, 'Okay, well done. Well done. I think they got the costume right. The casting they completely ruined, but the costume they nailed!'"
In comparison to his lithe, skin-tight Fantastic Four costume, Evans says: “[In the FF suit] …you could move around quite well. This is a little more cumbersome. It doesn’t exactly breathe the way the Fantastic Four costume breathed, but it’s the way it should be. Any type of World War II uniform would be a little chunky, and I think that’s what kind of gives it its character.”
Damn straight Captain, couldn’t agree with you more. Now let’s talk shields. What kind of kit can we expect here?
“We’ve been testing a lot of shields. Last time I was in London they had six shields and I had to hold each one, see if I was comfortable with each one, see which one we all thought had the right look. The thing is pretty heavy, so I’m not sure I can throw it that far! I’ll give it my best shot, but hopefully they’ll have some sort of stunt shield when it comes to actually chucking it!”
Agreed. Flinging an actual shield is not a good idea. We speak from experience with our very own 300 shield. The kitchen window will never, ever be the same again.
Captain America: The First Avenger is out on July 22 next year.
blah blah blah, let's turn this into a Chris picspam, shall we?
Gina Gershon, Danny Glover and Robert Patrick will lead the cast of the indie film "Five Minarets in New York."
The movie is the English-language debut of Turkish writer-director Mahsun Kirmizigul, whose previous film, "I Saw the Sun," was Turkey's foreign-language film Oscar submission last year. Gershon will star as Maria, the wife of a Turkish scholar who is arrested by federal authorities after being wrongfully accused of a crime.
The APA-repped Gershon is in theaters in the Taylor Hackford-directed drama "Love Ranch." The actress is filming the Maya Entertainment crime story "The Exodus of Charlie Wright."
The ICM-repped Glover most recently appeared in "2012," "Blindness" and "Death at a Funeral."
Patrick, repped by Paradigm and the Coronel Group, recently appeared in "The Men Who Stare at Goats," "Strange Wilderness" and "Bridge to Terabithia."
A former singer, Kirmizigul also is the writer-director of "The White Angel" and the co-writer of "The Wings of the Night."
It's a good day for Modern Family. In addition to being nominated for the Emmy for Best Comedy Series, basically every actor in the show (with the glaring exception of Ed O'Neill) got an individual nod. This morning, we spoke with Jesse Tyler Ferguson about his nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy, along with his co-stars Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell. Obviously, he's very excited.
Emma? It's Lea Michele!
Sing me a song!
[Singing.] It's time to try, defying gravity!
Okay, Jesse, I'm on to you. How are you feeling?
Excited is an understatement. I got a voice message from Ty Burrell. Eric Stonestreet called me, bawling, which was sweet, and of course started making me cry. The Twitter has blown up; I've gotten text messages — a lot is happening.
Were you expecting it?
No. I was absolutely, 100 percent cocky about the show getting nominated; I knew it would be. And I was certain that Eric and Ty would get them, but I really wasn't expecting it for myself. I actually thought everyone would get one but me. I even sent out an e-mail saying, "If I'm the only cast member not nominated, I solemnly swear to not be moody, and to be happy for the show, and only cry quietly in privacy."

Irina Shayk, Cristiano Ronaldo Girlfriend, HACKED On Facebook
Irina Shayk, a 24-year-old model linked to soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, was the victim of a Facebook hacker attack, the New York Post reports. According to the article, someone entered Shayk's account and wrote public postings pretending to be upset over Ronaldo's newborn son -- of whom Shayk is not the mother.
"I am so devastated, I am at home crying right now," one of the posts said. But Shayk, who is currently in New York with the former FIFA World Player of the Year, will not comment on her lover's baby.
needs some boca
which one of you hacked her facebook account?
actually my guess is that KAKA hacked her account cuz he's angry at CRon
You're going to have to throw away the brow tweezers you got engraved with the name "Ronaldo" on it, because apparently that's not what Cristiano Ronaldo named his 1-month-old son. Cristiano's sister tells The Daily Telegraph that Crispy has given his son the name Cristiano Jr. I guess Cristianojesty was already taken. Crispy's sister said:
"The baby is doing very well. We are looking after him while Cristiano is away. He's called Cristiano just like his dad. "Cristiano chose the name but we like it. He looks like his father and like me. He has the same eyes. We don’t know the mother, we never met her."
It makes sense that Cristiano Jr. is named Cristiano Jr. I mean, Crispy Sr. has already hired Mimi's airbrusher to paint 6-pack abs on Crispy Jr. so his son can have a situation just like him! Crispy Sr. has already ordered a custom-made spray tanning playpen so that his son have a perfect "5-month-old orange left in the back of the fridge" complexion just like him! And Crispy Sr. has already already bought a pacifier that squirts lip gloss so that his son can have precious shiny lips just like him. So of course he's going to name his son after himself!
Here's more of Crispy Sr. flaunting his ebony toe nails while on vacation in NYC with his girlfriend. Before you start going on about how Crispy Sr. should be at home in Portugal with his new baby, think for a minute. Crispy Jr. is obviously not ready yet.. Do you really expect Crispy Sr. to spend an extended amount of time with a pasty baby with non-plucked brows?!
The Montreux Jazz Festival began brilliantly under the burning sun. Prince gave the honor of his presence among the audience, the tourists appreciated the free concerts and the program was excellent.
Nevertheless the waters of the lake of Geneva are troubled. Regina Spektor, who played yesterday at the Stravinski auditorium, entered the stage in tears. In a broken voice she explained that one of her musicians had suddenly passed away in Montreux a few days previously. Despite bouts of weeping her performance was unfailing, and the American pianist repeatedly gave homage to her "beautiful friend Dan".
According to the newspaper "24 heures" the musician had drowned in the lake of Geneva, near the Chillon Castle in the Montreux community. The body was retrieved ten meters off the shore where the water is about three meters deep. A friend who had gone swimming with him had suddenly lost him from view. Currently an investigation is underway.
The concert was really intense, people were in tears and really supportive whenever she needed a minute. Near the beginning she asked the audience to please stop taking photos and after that I only saw one person do so (although there's a video of Samson on YT already). In between songs she kept having to wipe her eyes and collect herself and at one point her bandmate took over and played a song Dan had loved. But she pulled through all songs, her voice was as phenomenal as ever and never broke and you could see how much she was feeling it. Raw emotion, especially during Blue Lips, The Wallet and of course Genius Next Door.

20th Century Fox has revealed the new trailer for Machete, opening in theaters on September 3. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Ethan Maniquis, the action film stars Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal.
Machete is based on the "fake" trailer in Rodriguez's 2007 Grindhouse. The feature version of the trailer finds Machete (Trejo) a renegade former Mexican Federale, roaming the streets of Texas after a shakedown from drug lord Torrez (Seagal). Reluctantly, Machete takes an offer from spin doctor Benz (Fahey) to assassinate McLaughlin (De Niro) a corrupt Senator. Double crossed and on the run Machete braves the odds with the help of Luz (Michelle Rodriguez), a saucy taco slinger, Padre (Marin) his "holy" brother, and April (Lohan) a socialite with a penchant for guns. All while being tracked by Sartana (Alba), a sexy ICE agent with a special interest in the blade slinger.
He's fun, trust-worthy, and supportive, plus you don't have to compete with him. He's your gay best friend--and he's in demand.

Are Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels headed for a custody battle?
Almost a week after the singer filed legal documents to end their partnership, Michaels also went to court to file her own papers.
But while Etheridge, 49, requested joint custody of the couple's 3-year-old twins, Michaels, 35, is seeking full legal and physical custody, with visitation for Etheridge, documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court show. Michaels gave birth to son Miller and daughter Johnnie in 2006. She is also asking the court to grant her spousal support.
In her paperwork, Michaels filed for a dissolution of marriage rather than a dissolution of domestic partnership. At the time of their union, they did not qualify to legally marry. However, her attorney says the filing was a deliberate choice.
"Tammy filed a dissolution of marriage, because in her eyes this was a marriage. Both she and Melissa gave it the dignity of a marriage – they had a marital ceremony back in 2001," attorney Steve Knowles tells PEOPLE. "If the court system says there was no such thing as a marriage and tells us we have to amend it to a domestic partnership, so be it. It's a symbolic act on Tammy's part, and frankly she thought it would be better for the children if they were recognized as children of a married couple. ... It was not at all Tammy's decision to go down the route to dissolve their marriage."
Both Etheridge and Michaels cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split.
Michaels expressed her shock over Etheridge's filing, writing on her blog Saturday that she felt blindsided.

More of this lovefest in 3 months
If you're feeling overwhelmed just thinking about juggling your back-to-school agenda, take a lesson from multitaskers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. The tireless twins recently added a new line to a budding empire that already includes cult faves The Row and Elizabeth and James. But for Olsenboye--an affordable-cool collection of chiced-up staples and jeans--the designers got a little extra help via a collaboration with JCPenney. "They've been so supportive of our vision," says Mary-Kate, right down to Web videos the duo dreamed up "to bring the clothes to life." The job has its perks, though, thanks to the sisters' far-flung sources of inspiration. "Each season we pick a new city, then travel there for research. For fall, it's London," Ashley says. "We're really influenced by street fashion." So while girls around the globe have long studied the sibling style icons for cues, Mary-Kate and Ashley are now turning the focus around. "Olsenboye isn't about trends so much as how girls mix and match," Mary-Kate says. The duo put their famous layering skills to work at our shoot, creating a look for the first day of class from fall picks like a studded army jacket, heeled clogs, and slouchy gray jeans inspired by vintage-denim shopping trips. "With jeans, it's hard to find that perfect fit," Mary-Kate says. "We modeled ours after great pairs we've hunted down, to make them more available." One less thing for you to have to worry about.
They actually smiled; and look cute doing so! They need an affordable adult line. I absolutely love The Row and Elizabeth and James, but there is no way I could afford it right now. Olsenboye is just too young for me, they need a Macy's type of line.

Our sources say Gibson has emails and other evidence Oksana "tried to extract money from Mel in return for the [explosive] tapes." As TMZ has already reported, Oksana secretly recorded Gibson during several heated arguments back in February.
We're told Sheriff's investigators are concerned that Oksana had contact with civil lawyers and judges while she negotiated a visitation agreement with Mel over a 6-month period but never once contacted police. Oksana was represented by attorney Eric George, the son of California Supreme Court Justice Ronald George, to handle the visitation case. She went through 2 full days of mediation in May, conducted by two former judges, one of whom was a former federal prosecutor and negotiated a visitation agreement.
We've learned the agreement -- signed by both Oksana and Mel -- gave Mel full visitation rights and future joint legal custody of their daughter.
Last month, Oksana refused to give Mel his visitation rights and it was then that she made allegations of abuse for the first time.
TMZ has previously reported ... Mel denies knocking Oksana's teeth out.
OH WHAT A SURPRISE. I know nothing is confirmed yet but we don't know the whole story here. Maybe they're both crazy?

The release window has also been downsized from "Holiday 2010" to the more specific "November 2010."
Michael Jackson: The Experience will be released on the DS, PS3, PSP, Wii, and XBox 360. The XBox 360 version will have Kinect support, and put a digitized version of yourself on the screen, similar to Ubisoft's new Kinect fitness game, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved. The PS3 version will also have Move support. All three console versions will play similarly to Just Dance and have the player match the dance movements on the screen, but this time they'll be MJ's smooth magic motions. Yes!
The only specific details were about the 360, DS, and PSP versions. The DS and PSP versions will use what Ubisoft is calling "tap-on rhythm gameplay," which sounds like an MJ version of Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, which sounds good to me. The 360 version will also include four player jump in/jump out gameplay (hey I thought Kinect could only score 2 skeletons at once in Dance Central or Dance Masters?), and it will use auto-pitch control to improve your singing, since face it, we can't all rock a falsetto like The King. It is unknown whether the auto-tuning magic will be in the other versions yet, but it better be. I know I'll need some support with all the "woo!"s in "The Man in the Mirror" or the falsetto verses in "Smooth Criminal."
But the bad news: they still haven't confirmed any songs other than "Beat It" and "Billie Jean," so we still have to keep our fingers crossed for all our favorites. So what songs are you looking forward to? Who's excited for this game as much as I am? (And more importantly, who's bad?)

These pictures of Kim Kardashian admiring herself in the mirror don’t really come as much of a surprise to me, I imagine she does this for most of the day, what is surprising is that she just had her eyebrows done. What the hell? I could have sworn those things were completely natural, like Heidi Montag’s breasts or Lindsay Lohan’s innocence or my relationship with any number of Hollywood hotties. I feel duped and now I kinda want to see her natural big bushy cavewoman eyebrows. Maybe she’ll grow them out for me.

Lindsay Lohan's father became aggressive and agitated -- even using the ‘f-word’ to describe his frustrations with his public perception -- when the topic of his daughter’s three-month jail sentence came up during an appearance on Fox News’ “Studio B With Shepard Smith” on Thursday.
In a wide-ranging interview, Smith asked Michael Lohan about his reasons for allowing himself to be photographed smiling at a restaurant just hours after his daughter sobbed in a Los Angeles courtroom.
