Matt Bomer: Shirtless 'White Collar' Teaser Pics!

Here’s a sneak peek of a shirtless Matt Bomer in tomorrow night’s White Collar!

The flashback episode, entitled “Forging Bonds,” shows Matt’s character, Neal Caffrey, forging a Monet painting and how Neal and Mozzie (Willie Garson) met.

“The way I met Mozzie and the way we sort of came to become friends was pleasantly surprising,” Matt said. “Getting to see Willie in several different toupees and facial hair arrangements was sort of the highlight of that episode for me, one of many highlights of that episode.”

Amber Portwood Stars Feud with Kim Kardashian

Image and video hosting by TinyPic 

The 30-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star caused controversy recently when she warned girls against idolising the stars of shows like MTV's Teen Mom. 'Teen Mom' star Amber Portwood didn't take too kindly to Kim's comments, back by reminding the socialite of her own dubious past.

'There's actually a study that shows since the original 16 and Pregnant aired, the number of teen pregnancies has gone down,' Amber told E! Online

'Last time I checked, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape floating around on the internet and I'm pretty sure she made a lot of money off of it. She made a sex tape when she was younger, and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mom?'

In her defense, Amber said, 'If you read the articles about the show, they do nothing but talk about how the show reveals how hard it is for all of us. It doesn't glamorize anything!

'It shows the heartache we've all gone through. We may be 'celebrities' because our face is out there, but it's only because we've done some bad things. That's not glamorous.'

jessica alba concerned about ruining her child!!

Jessica Alba recently admitted concerns that her 2-year-old daughter will struggle to cope when she’s old enough to understand that her mummy is famous.

The Hollywood star – who only has one child with hubby Cash Warren – said, “It’s a tough balance. It’s tough to figure out if you’re going to ruin your kid for the rest of their life by the decisions you’re making.”

Wait, doesn’t everybody feel like that regardless of whether or not they’re famous? We think they do. But anyway, the 29-year-old Sin City star then joked that her daughter will probably end up needing therapy when she’s older.

“I try to do the best I can and try to balance as much as I can between work and family and giving her boundaries but also letting her make her own decisions. This is definitely therapy material! I just know it!”

This isn’t the first time Ms Alba has raised the issue. She recently said, “I grew up Catholic so I have lots of guilt I can’t seem to shake away. I’m really just a simple girl from the suburbs.”


Jason Mraz Waiting For Gay Marriage

Jason Mraz told Tristan Prettyman 'I'm Yours,' but he won't say "I do," for perhaps quite a while.

Mraz, who popped the question to Prettyman right before Christmas, told attendees of the Concert to Benefit the American Foundation for Equal Rights on Wednesday that he won't walk down the aisle until everyone can -- including gay couples.

"We both feel that in our engagement, we have a union that's really special and cant be broken. It's a sacred bond," he told the audience (via Us Weekly). "The wedding would be nice for our family, our friends, our community -- our moms especially -- and so it puts us in the fight. We can't get married until [gay] marriage is legal and equal... I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights."

Mraz wasn't the only singer to speak out at the benefit in a big way. Elton John announced that he supported gay marriage, a reversal of sorts from his 2009 statement in which he said that he was satisfied with his civil union with partner David Furnish, and said, "F**k you," to marriage equality opponents.

Mraz has taken political stances before, working in June with Free The Slaves to shine a light on modern slavery.

Why Did James Franco Wear a Blond Wig at Sundance?

So what hasn't James Franco done lately?

He's attending Yale University, wrote a book, signed on to co-host the Oscars, starred in the critically acclaimed 127 Hours … and became a ditzy blonde.

Franco showed off the new look at the Sundance Film Festival, where he's promoting his documentary, Three's Company: The Drama, which examines the classic 1970's sitcom.

The actor, 32, channeled his inner-Suzanne Somers by donning a long blond wig and black beanie while hosting a "Reagle Beagle"-themed bash Friday night at Chefdance, presented by Sotheby's.

"He was singing into the mic at the deejay booth," says a party guest. 

The deejay blasted the old school Three's Company theme song throughout the evening. "James was having a great time."

Other celeb fans toasting alongside him: Andie MacDowell and Eliza Dushku and 
Rick Fox.

Franco capped off his big night arriving to TAO at The Samsung Galaxy Tab Lift just after 2 a.m. with a group of 20 including agent Kevin Huvane. Also there were actors Susan Sarandon (with small group but sans beau Jonathan Bricklin) and Hugh Dancy (with one guy friend, sans wife Claire Danes).

Andrew Garfield didn't expect 'The Social Network' to be exciting at first


'The Social Network' star Andrew Garfield has admitted he didn't think it would be an exciting movie until he read the script.

The 27-year-old actor, who plays the role of ousted Facebook founder Eduardo Saverin in the film, was initially skeptical about the subject matter, but quickly fell in love with the project.

"When I first heard about it, I was confused, like most people. It doesn't conjure images of an exciting film when you hear the words 'Facebook movie,'" ContactMusic quoted him as saying.

"But then as soon as I knew who had written the script I thought, 'Well, there must be something in it' and of course, I was proved right upon reading it," he said.

Andrew believes part of the appeal of the movie is how there are no clearly defined good and bad characters.

"There are no villains, no heroes, just a bunch of human beings with different opinions of the situation," he added.

Kurt Russell's (Secret) Confession: I Hope Kate Hudson Has a Girl


As could be expected, Kurt Russell is overjoyed at the news that Kate Hudson is pregnant.

"It's fun having babies once again," Russell, 59, the longtime partner of Hudson's mother, Goldie Hawn, tells PEOPLE. "We just really like that. And it's fun to watch them grow. It's fun to see what they're grasping."

But the actor has a confession to make.

"I think secretly we're all hoping for a girl," he says with a laugh.

News broke last week that Hudson, 31, who has 7-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, is expecting a child with boyfriend Matthew Bellamy, 32, the British frontman for the rock group Muse.

Russell said Friday night at the 8th Annual Living Legends of Aviation Awards at the Beverly Hilton that Ryder also is looking forward to becoming a big brother again.

Robinson and wife Allison Bridges are parents to year-old daughter Cheyenne. "There's a great relationship between [Ryder and Cheyenne]. [Ryder] was very excited about that. And he's very excited about this too," Russell told PEOPLE.

And Russell says that Bellamy fits in great with the family. "He's really fun. We all enjoy him. We understand what Katie sees in the guy. He's a great guy," he says.

Any wedding talk for the soon-to-be parents?

"No. I haven't heard any of that," says Russell.


I looooooooove Kurt Russell...like a lot.


'The King's Speech' wins, 'The Social Network' loses at the Producers Guild Awards

"The King's Speech" took top honors at the 22nd annual Producers Guild of America ceremony in Los Angeles, upsetting "The Social Network."

Saturday's award to "The King's Speech" is the first loss of the awards season for "The Social Network," making the race for the best picture Oscar more interesting, the Los Angeles Times noted.

The PGA gave the award for Outstanding Producer of Animated Theatrical Motion Pictures to Darla K. Anderson for "Toy Story 3." Lesley Chilcott won the documentary feature category for "Waiting for 'Superman.'"

"The Social Network" was the front-runner in the PGA awards. The upset gives "The King's Speech" a clear shot at winning the Oscar, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"The Social Network" is about the Harvard undergraduate founders of Facebook. "The King's Speech" is about King George VI's efforts to conquer his stuttering. "Network" has already won the Golden Globe and Critics Choice Movie Award for best film.

The ABC TV show "Modern Family" won the Danny Thomas Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic TV-Comedy.

The Norman Felton Award for Outstanding Producer of Episodic TV-Drama went to AMC's "Mad Men."

"The King's Speech" producers Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Gareth Unwin were recipients of the Darryl F. Zanuck Award for Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures.


AI homeless drama update - Alex Lambert claims he ISN'T on retainer

Who knew this would be so fun to watch? First, Alex Lambert tweeted that he was living on the streets of LA. Then 19E said that Alex is on retainer and there was no way he was homeless. Now, Alex is tweeting that he isn't getting a retainer at all.

"I just got back on the internet from like a week ago and I'm reading that everywhere! When Do I get this retainer? $$ dude! These guys have been telling the media they been payin me! Makin me look like im lyin! It's a shame dude!"

We can't wait for 19E's inevitable response, "I know you are but what am I?" and Alex's poignant return with, "Your mom." No matter what happens next, Alex is pissing off some 19E people and it's hilarious to watch the damage control on both sides.

Judd Apatow Really Didn't Like Ricky Gervais' Golden Globes Jokes


Producers Guild Awards host Judd Apatow built his opening monologue around a profanity-laced attack on the way Ricky Gervais handled his Golden Globe Awards hosting chores a week earlier in the same room at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“What did you think of Ricky Gervais?” he asked the black-tie industry crowd Saturday night. “I didn’t like him. I thought he was mean.”

Apatow, whose movies include The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, knocked Gervais for his controversial jokes.

“He had that joke about the guy on Lost,” said Apatow. “He said he ate everybody else. Let’s be honest -- Ricky Gervais just lost weight. Even now he’s four pounds away from not being allowed to do a joke like that. Did he lose weight just to make fat jokes? You think that’s how mean he is?"

J Lo Obviously Dismissed Feud With The Voice, Remains a Lamb All These Years Like The Other Girls

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jennifer Lopez has dismissed reports that she is feuding with Mariah Carey.

The singer, who is gearing up for her music comeback this year, insisted that she is a "big fan" of Carey and that the pair have never been in competition with each other.

Asked by Carey's husband Nick Cannon on his radio show if there was a "beef" between the two, she said: "Never has been for me at all. No, no, I've always been a big fan of hers. It's all love from me. I feel really blessed in my life, and it's not a competition with other people - it's a competition with myself."

Lopez also congratulated Cannon on Carey's pregnancy, insisting: "You're going to love it. I promise it's going to be the best thing that ever happened to you guys and I'm so excited for you!"


I like that J Lo is such a fan and also, her new single is surprisingly addictive. That's weird, I have all the good things to say about her..

Cheryl Cole tells Derek Hough she will 'never marry' again

X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has allegedly told Derek Hough that she will never marry again.

Sources told a Sunday newspaper that the 27-year-old gave the bad news to the pro dancer during a series of "heart-to-heart" talks.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday: "Cheryl has told Derek point blank that she won't marry him.

"They've been talking a lot recently about what the future holds for them. Cheryl has told Derek she loves him and wants to settle down and start a family.

"But she's made it quite clear that it won't involve a wedding."

They added: "She's been permanently scarred by her marriage break-up with Ashley and can't face going through another divorce."

A recent report claimed that Cheryl had also told Derek that she will not be moving in with him when she relocates to Hollywood later this year.

Nelly: Mariah Carey Is My Inspiration

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Nelly is inspired by Mariah Carey for his career comeback.

The "Hot In Herre" hitmaker has never matched the success of his first two albums, 2000's Country Grammer and Nellyville in 2002 but insists he will never give up because he knows he can regain his popularity one day.

He said: "Look at Mariah Carey. She has a little break. People look at it like it's over. They have to throw dirt on her. Then all of a sudden, she's the biggest thing to hit the stage again. Even bigger. You see what I'm saying, and I think that happens. So when you look at it like that, you've got to apply yourself."

The 36-year-old star even wants to use the negative comments of his critics to further fuel his desire to achieve chart success again.

He added: "I feel like, if people want to count me out - which I don't know how you would count a guy out with 30 million records sold - then OK, I'm going to use it to my advantage. And I just felt that, since you don't want to acknowledge me, or if you want to act like I don't exist then good, don't check for me. But you will eventually hear from me - and it works better that way."


Emancipation of Mimi was the epic comeback of this generation, but its not exactly a comeback because Mariah has always been legendary in voice and music since "Vision of Love".

The Eight Career Options for Romantic-Comedy Heroines

You can tell a lot about a woman in a romantic comedy by the profession she's been assigned, so Vulture analyzed the eight most common careers of the genre to see just what they say about the women who pursue them (and the sort of men they inevitably fall for).


Living in New York is a must for any magazine writer in a romantic comedy, and though our girl might work at a publication she deems frivolous, she dreams of working her way up to hard news (as in The Devil Wears Prada, Confessions of a Shopaholic, and How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days) or, at least, out of her fact-checking gig (Letters to Juliet). Still, she'd better be careful, as the magazine business is seductive and can turn this striving brainiac into someone shallow and callous (Prada, 13 Going on 30).

Justin Bieber is working with Sean Garrett to "become the next White Chocolate"

Now that he’s made a couple million off of feeding the dreams of high school girls the world over, Justin Bieber is ready to switch his style up. According to Sean Garrett, Bieber is ready to revamp his sound and become the next White Chocolate, a la Timberlake and Thicke.

“What we’re trying to do with Justin is to segue him into young adulthood,” says Garrett. “The one great thing about Justin Bieber is the fact that his fans are going to grow with him. So we want all the fans that started out with him to still be intrigued and excited about him, but we want to also stretch out a little bit and make the fans that are 22-23 years old love Justin as well. When Justin Timberlake went from the last album of *NSync to his first solo album — I want to say [we're aiming for] that level. That’s the bar for the type of song, that level of ‘Cry Me a River,’ big records.

Yeah… it might be just us, but we don’t think Justin Bieber now = Justin Timberlake when *NSync made “Gone.”

Cher Lloyd's first interview after X-Factor

Love her or loathe her, the kid from the council house in Malvern, Worcs, is definitely looking - and acting - like an international pop star. And all this before she has even released a single. The Sun caught up with Cher on the famous Sunset Strip in LA for her first interview since The X Factor.

She was still breathless with excitement after meeting Lil Wayne - a controversial rapper, real name Dwayne Carter, who has been charged for drugs and weapons offences in the past.

Cher said: "Meeting Lil Wayne was actually the best day of my life. I'll never ever forget it. "The same people who took the mickey out of me at school loved Lil Wayne and now I am chilling with him in the studio."

The skinny teenager has also been recording with Lady GaGa's producer RedOne - real name Nadir Khayat - who has made Cher his No1 priority for 2011. RedOne said: "There are created stars and creative stars. Cher's a creative star - she's amazing."

The only negative for Cher is that she can't seem to put on any weight - even in the US, where the portions are super-sized. Cher is very sensitive about her tiny size 6 frame and is desperate to fill out to silence her critics.

She said: "My big insecurity is that I am too small. I see girls with curves and I'd do anything to be like that. I'm trying. I eat all the time. "I like a full-on Chinese, everything covered in sweet and sour sauce - with chips! I could eat that every day.

Pauly D Wants You To Have A Happy Valetine’s Day


I am not the biggest fan of Valentine’s Day and have never been the type of girl to expect roses, chocolates, or gifts in little boxes. But there is something I would like a certain someone to get me this year—a Pauly D Valentine’s Day greeting. Apparently, the “Jersey Shore” star has recorded a bunch for Star Greetz that can be sent via email, twitter or Facebook. We’ll assume the word ‘smoosh’ isn’t in the messages?

Pauly D showed us his sweet side in Miami when he romanced Rocio, and even though that part seems to be gone now that he’s back in Seaside Heights, Pauly swears that he is actually a knight in shining armor. “I’ll go the extra mile on Valentine’s Day to make the woman happy. It’s all about the girl,” he said.

But it doesn’t always go well. “Worst Valentine’s Day I ever had was a few years back,” he said. “I got a flat tire on the highway with my date in the car, so my date and I had to ride back with the AAA man. Not cool.”

Matthew Weiner Hasn't Started Writing Mad Men's Fifth Season Yet


AMC has promised the world a fifth season of Mad Men, but the network is still negotiating with Lionsgate, which produces the drama. And with Matthew Weiner, whose contract expired. “I have every intention of making the show when they decide to work out their business with Lionsgate," Weiner said yesterday. "I have said over and over that I want the show to go on and on until it has worn out its welcome and we can’t think of anything more for the characters to do. I'm not looking for a new job. I’m dying to go back to work, but the truth is I don’t know what their plans are. We have not started writing. I am not back at work. They are fighting over a very lucrative property, and who is going to pay for it to get made; it’s one of the biggest perils of success — everyone wants a piece of it now and they are fighting over who is gonna get the biggest chunk. Then they will come to me because talent is last. It would be heartbreaking for me if they don’t work it out. Horrifying, really."

The book details Assange's life from his childhood on Magnetic Island in Queensland, Australia, all the way through to his founding of the whistleblower website in 2006 to publish classified material. Producers Barry Josephson and Michelle Krumm, who have optioned The Most Dangerous Man in the World, say they are planning a 'suspenseful drama' in the vein of All the President's Men and with the thrill of a Tom Clancy novel. 'As soon as I met Andrew and read a few chapters of his profound book, I knew that – with his incredibly extensive depth of knowledge – it would enable us to bring a thought-provoking thriller to the screen,' says Krumm.

Exclusive Video: Chuck's Yvonne Strahovski Teases a 'Whole New' Sarah

You’re in good company if your heart was a bit crushed by last week’s interrupted marriage proposal on NBC’s Chuck (airing Mondays at 8/7c). “It’s very sad, isn’t it, what happened,” says Yvonne Strahovski, sharing viewers’ pain.

“[Sarah] wanted it to happen, she wants the proposal,” the actress shares in an exclusive TVLine video Q&A, shown below. Alas, General Beckman’s plan to send Sarah undercover as a “treasonous” CIA agent, all in the name of rescuing Chuck’s mother (played by Linda Hamilton), swung into action before Chuck could even get to “Will you…?”

Also in this not-at-all-unattractive video: Yvonne shares her take on the leather-clad, brunette Sarah making her debut in this week’s episode (“It’s a whole new side of Sarah Walker we’re going to see!”), previews the return of very special (and very funny) guest star, and absolutely effuses about her favorite episode of the season.

Oh, right — Strahovski also weighs in on the matter of Sarah and Chuck ever getting that marriage proposal business taken care of properly.

Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, 96, dies at Calif. home

Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, 96, dies at Calif. home

MORRO BAY, Calif. (AP) — Fitness guru Jack LaLanne, who inspired television viewers to trim down and pump iron decades before exercise became a national obsession, has died at age 96.

His agent, Rick Hersh, says LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia Sunday afternoon at his home in Morro Bay on California's central coast.

Hersh says Lalanne ate healthy and exercised every day of his life up until the end.

LaLanne credited fitness with transforming his life as a teen, and he worked over the next eight decades to transform others' lives, too.

He said, "The only way you can hurt the body is not use it." LaLanne's workout show was a television staple from the 1950s to '70s. He maintained a youthful physique into his 80s.

It's time to stop this obsession with works of art based on real events

From Oscar favourite The King's Speech to ex-Booker winner Wolf Hall, art that retells events is now the mainstay of films and books. But the concentration on reality stops writers using the imagination for storytelling.

Throughout their history, movies have been talked about in terms of dreaming: studios are "dream factories"; Hollywood is "the land of dreams". But scanning the list of contenders for this year's Oscars, such descriptions feels misplaced. The most striking thing about the leading films of the last 12 months is how many draw their inspiration from fact.

The leading Oscar contenders, The King's Speech and The Social Network, both offer fictionalised portraits of familiar but enigmatic public figures – a monarch and a monumentally successful entrepreneur. But it's also true of other hotly tipped releases such as The Fighter (about boxer Micky Ward) and 127 Hours (about rock climber Aron Ralston), as well as films still to hit our screens such as The Conquest (about the early life of President Sarkozy) or next year's Freddie Mercury movie starring Sacha Baron Cohen.

Is this glut of fact-based films a coincidence, or is something fundamental going on? Artists basing work on real people and events is hardly a new phenomenon. Shakespeare was very good at it, as Henry IV and Richard III attest. In Paradise Lost, Milton fictionalised the lives of two figures then regarded as historical: Adam and Eve. One of the greatest of all films, Citizen Kane, was inspired by the life of William Randolph Hearst. Even so, there has been a shift in recent years away from works of pure imagination towards ones that combine fact and fiction. This has been the case in every story-based medium.

Anthony Hopkins in Talks to Play Alfred Hitchcock


Sir Anthony Hopkins may soon make a turn as the Master of Suspense, Sir Alfred Hitchcock.  The Oscar-winner is currently in negotiations with Ivan Reitman’s Montecito Pictures to star in the film adaptation of Stephen Rebello’s book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho.  Momentum on the film is certainly gaining as, only two days ago, we reported that Anvil! The Story of Anvil director Sacha Gervasi was in talks to direct the pic and rewrite John McLaughlin’s (Black Swan) script.

This is not Hopkins’ first time courting the role, as Heat Vision points out, that the actor was attached to a previous iteration of the project with Ryan Murphy directing and Helen Mirren starring opposite Hopkins.

Drake in Talks to Join Eva Green in ARBITRAGE


Teen-actor-turned-hip-hop-star Drake may soon be returning to his former profession.  The former Degrassi: The Next Generation star is currently in talks to join writer/director Nicholas Jarecki’s (The Informers) financial thriller Arbitrage.  If the deal goes through, Drake (whose full name is Aubrey Drake Graham) would join a solid cast that already features Eva Green and Susan Sarandon.

Taylor Armstrong's Real Name Is Shana Hughes

A reader emailed this to realfauxhousewives.com:

"My husband and I live in Boca Raton and we met Taylor and Russel in Boca and then we all drove down (in my husband’s car) to Miami (South Beach) to have dinner. At the time, Taylor and Russell were just dating. He was trying to get my husband to invest in some crazy deal – luckily my husband decided against it.
Taylor was very aloof – she did not say much about what she did for a living and her life – she was also rude and condescending. However, she did make sure that we were aware she was Taylor “Ford” from the Ford Motor Family of Oklahoma. I had such a strong feeling it was not true – she seemed more like white-trash dressed in Gucci than a trust-fund person – but I did not say anything about my feelings. Russell insisted to my husband that she was from the “Ford” family. They obviously were trying to impress us. If only Taylor had some manners, then perhaps we would have had some positive thoughts about her!

It was the worst night….because Taylor was so bizarre – she was so obnoxious and was very rude – I had never seen someone be that rude in my entire life. She was screaming (trying to be cute and flirty with Russell) in the car and then started making out with Russell in the back seat of our Mercedes. Russell was such a wimp…he didn’t even say anything to her about her rude and obnoxious behavior.

She was drunk when we picked them up at the hotel they were staying at – and she proceeded to get even more drunk at the restaurant (Prime 112 in South Beach). She did not speak to my husband or me and she kept making snide remarks about us to Russell (all while we were across from them at the same table). It also seemed like she was “high” on something, by the way she was acting, but I can not confirm that for sure. Finally, half way through the dinner they both got up to use the restroom and never came back! They left us with a huge bill (mostly from all the drinks they ordered) and when we called Russell to find out what happened to them, he did not answer his cell. The next day Russell called my husband – on the voicemaill he said that Taylor wanted to leave early to meet up with some celebrity – I forget which celebrity it was - who was in South Beach that night. My husband did not return the call. He was extremely turned off by their behavior.

I forgot about this terrible night, but when I saw Taylor on RHBH I knew I had met her somewhere – when I found out that her maiden name was “Ford” I remembered all of it. When I learned online that her real name is Shana Hughes Armstrong, I could not stop laughing! She was so pretentious and snobby the night we were with her and it turns out she is a fraud! The fact that she changed her entire name to appear as an “important” person is so sad, because it verifies just how very insecure she is – and also how much of a “social climber” she is.

After I realized this was the same Taylor that my husband and I met six years ago, I went through an old pile of photos and found a picture of the four of us, taken at Prime 112 restaurant in South Beach.
My husband does not want a picture of himself with Russell on the internet, becaues he does not want to be associated with Russell (Russell does not have the cleanest reputation in the financial industry) – but I promise I will try to talk him into it!
By the way, back in 2004 she had those horrendous lips too! She didn’t have the extensions in and she wasn’t as skinny as she is now (she looks anorexic now).

Just thought you might find this interesting!

All the best"

Edited to add Veromi.net entry showing the name Taylor Ford Armstrong. 

So that makes 3 different names. Shana Hughes, Shana Taylor & Taylor Ford Armstrong.

Details on a TRON 3 Teaser That Will Appear on the TRON: LEGACY DVD


I’m among the defenders of Tron: Legacy.  Mostly because of the visuals (duh), but I think the filmmakers put a lot of interesting ideas up on screen, then failed to explore them fully.  Legacy does not live up to its full potential, but lays the groundwork for a great sequel.

We know that Disney always hoped to establish a franchise.  The studio commissioned a sequel script last April and is reportedly very close to an official greenlight.  (Not to mention the animated series Tron: Uprising on Disney XD.)  But the extent of Disney’s planning may surprise you.  A new report suggests that Disney already has a teaser for Tron 3 in the can, and it will appear as a Tron: Legacy DVD extra.  As long as you don’t mind spoilers for the teaser or Tron: Legacy, hit the jump for details.

‘Captain America’ title will be changed to ‘The First Avenger’ in Russia, South Korea


How do you sell a movie called “Captain America” to an overseas market? In South Korea, Russia and the Ukraine, apparently, the answer is you don’t even try.

The film “Captain America: The First Avenger” will have its title truncated to, simply, “The First Avenger” in those three overseas markets, according to Marvel Studios insiders. The choice was made by Marvel, Paramount Pictures’ international team and distributors in those three countries based on market research results. Those involved in the decision are being careful to frame the move as a matter of brand management and consumer awareness and not as a decision tilted by cultural or political winds.

As for the film, "Gnomeo and Juliet" is directed by Kelly Asbury while set to hit theaters on February 11, 2011.

A synopsis of the picture via Walt Disney Pictures reads: "Garden gnomes Gnomeo (voice of McAvoy) and Juliet (voice of Blunt) have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with plastic pink flamingos and lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find lasting happiness?"

Viggod Mortensen and Michael Fassbender Singing in German on Dangerous Method Set

We have confirmation that yes, Viggo Mortensen can wear a false nose. Video has surfaced from the set of A Dangerous Method, the new movie from David Cronenberg, about the relationship between psychoanalysis forefathers Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Viggo Mortensen plays Freud and former Inglourious Basterd Michael Fassbender plays Jung.

In the two videos below you’ll see them shooting the movie in Vienna. Mostly this equates to a lot of actors wearing poofy dresses and tall hats. But you’ll get a good look at Viggo doing his Freud best in a beard and prosthetics, puffing away on a Freudian cigar. Take a look:

Kelly Osbourne is the new face of Madonna's clothing line

Kelly Osbourne has been chosen by MADONNA to front her junior fashion brand Material Girl, I can reveal.

And I hear Kelly, who recently slimmed down to a size eight, has the queen of pop’s 14-year-old daughter Lourdes to thank. A close friend of the star said: “Kelly’s always been a massive fan of Madonna and recently heard Lourdes idolised her, which she was very flattered by. It’s a huge coup.”

And a huge improvement on Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen, the skinny weasel who fronted the clothing range’s launch last year.

Glee cast look worse for wear at Naya Rivera's Las Vegas birthday bash

She plays a bitchy, backstabbing cheerleader on hit show Glee.

But Naya Rivera was not short of friends to help her toast her 24th birthday in Las Vegas this weekend.

And her fellow Glee clubbers certainly their hair down in sin city as they partied hard at The Bank Nightclub in the Bellagio hotel.

The group, which included star Cory Monteith, as well as Heather Morris, Harry Shum, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chord Overstreet, Kevin McHale and Amber Riley, looked like they'd been at the champagne as they sang Happy Birthday.

Kevin Smith to Self-Distribute Red State

Following the official first screening of his latest film, Red State, writer/director Kevin Smith surprised the Sundance audience by revealing that he's not using the festival to look for a distributor for the film after all. Instead, Smith has plans to self-distribute as a traveling roadshow.

Beginning March 5th at Radio City Music Hall, Smith will tour the film across North America before releasing Red State through his Smodcast Pictures on October 19th (the 17th anniversary of the release of Clerks.)

What's more, Smith has announced that his upcoming production, Hit Somebody, based on the ballad by Warren Zevon, will be his last project as a director. He will put the film together with the same crew as Red State and, from there, expand Smodcast Pictures with a dedication to giving aspiring filmmakers a chance to have their projects shown.
