The violence and looting has blighted London since Saturday and Jessie Tweeted her fans to alert them to her feelings and frustration at not being able to do anything about it. Finally, she revealed that she was going to do what she does best and write a song.

Robert Pattinson, who apparently is the new spokesman for Adidas, goes grocery shopping.


Robert Pattinson was casual in a hoodie and sweat shorts to pick up food with a guy friend at a grocery store in LA on Tuesday. Robert was also sporting a hat to cover up the irregular hairdo he still has from shooting Cosmopolis, in which his character only manages to get halfway through his haircut. Rob is currently enjoying some downtime in California and he joined many of his Breaking Dawn costars for Sunday's Teen Choice Awards in Universal City. Robert Pattinson promoted Cancer Bites, a charity focused on blood cancer, as he accepted one of his awards over the weekend and as usual he had lots of thanks to give all the Twilight fans. He wrapped up his weekend with a trip to the Chateau Marmont, though he was without his usual date Kristen Stewart since she's currently overseas shooting Snow White and the Huntsman in his native UK.

'Avengers' Sneak Peek Officially Debuting At D23 Expo

Marvel Studios largely sat out San Diego Comic-Con last month, declining to deliver a major Hall H presentation as in years past. The speculation was the studio would hold back its superhero goods -- and the"Avengers" footage director Joss Whedonhas been capturing since the spring -- until D23 Expo, Disney's behind-the-scenes exhibition of what the mouse house has in its creative pipeline.
On Tuesday (August 9), that speculation proved to be accurate, as Disney announced "The Avengers" would officially be assembling at D23 when it hits the Anaheim Convention Center from August 19-21. The studio's press release didn't contain much further information about what (and who) will be part of the "Avengers" presentation, other than the vague promise of "cast members from Marvel's 'The Avengers.' " But Whedon told us at SDCC that what made it into the teaser trailer during the "Captain America" end credits was shot in the first few weeks of production, so presumably the filmmaker now has a hefty editing bay worth of superhero footage.

Tough Times at the Newsstand

Vogue has a lot to thank Lady Gaga for.

The title was the only one in the fashion magazine category to show a sales increase on the newsstand in the first half, and it was all down to the outre pop star’s appearance on the March cover. The shot, featuring a pink-haired Gaga wearing a breezy white gown with purple lips, drove sales up by more than 100,000 copies over the March 2010 issue, which featured a polar opposite type of celebrity: Tina Fey.

All in all, Vogue averaged 360,400 copies during the first half of this year at newsstand, up 12.7 percent.

Every other fashion title — with the exception of Allure, which was flat — dropped in the first half, some by more than double digits. However, the industry as a whole experienced a decline of 9.2 percent. “Fashion seems reflective of the overall trend right now,” said Jack Hanrahan, publisher of CircMatters. “Overall, only a few magazines are not doing so badly but, mostly, there are a lot of negative numbers.”

Time Inc.’s InStyle, down 8 percent for the period, remains the leader at the newsstand, selling an average of 570,272 copies, according to Audit Bureau of Circulations.

Marie Claire, down 21.5 percent in single-copy sales to 198,752, had the worst percentage newsstand decline among fashion titles for the half. “Our category in particular rises and falls when there are big strong female movies,editor in chief Joanna Coles said, referring to earlier successes like “Sex in the City 2.” “This year, the movies for women have been much less interesting.”

Welcome To Heartbreak: Full Trailer for Sundance Hit ‘Like Crazy’ Lands

Arriving barely a week after the teaser trailer, a full length spot has arrived for Sundance hit “Like Crazy.” The long-distance romantic drama stars Anton Yelchin, Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence and it struck a nerve with audiences at Park City earlier this year taking home the Grand Jury Prize for director Drake Doremus and Special Jury Prize for Felicity Jones. This writer saw the film back in January and thought it was easily one of the best of the fest. The film was mostly improvised and manages to capture that suffocating feeling of being in a long distance relationship delivering a few moments that are truly crushing. Paramount Vantage are finally beginning to roll out the marketing for the film and though they got off to a rocky start with the initial sound mix on the teaser, they quickly corrected the problem and are now on a roll. The latest trailer adds a few story beats to the previous clip but keeps the aching Ingrid Michaelson cover (not actually used in the film). Though the film won’t be for everyone, tonally it stakes out a space somewhere between “(500) Days of Summer” and “Blue Valentine” and it should pick up some major kudos for Jones’ performance in the film.

“Like Crazy” will hit theaters October 28th. Check out the trailer in HD at Apple or below.

Well he is associated with Twilight...

Allegedly getting behind the wheel after having a bit too much to drink, "Twilight" actor Kiowa Gordon was arrested on suspicion of a DUI in Mesa, Arizona yesterday (August 9).

As the 21-year-old star was taken into custody, authorities discovered an active warrant against him, stemming from a failed court appearance over a previous arrest for drug paraphernalia possession and supplying alcohol to minors.

Kiowa, who plays Embry Call in the franchise films, was taken to the Maricopa County Jail where was charged with DUI and held on $1,000 bond.

Still sitting behind bars today, Gordon has been scheduled for a court appearance on August 18.

Agatha Christie Comes to the Big Screen

Arterton Moves Into Crooked House

It was announced back in March that Neil LaBute – who last brought us the US remake of Death at a Funeral – is working on a version of crime novel legend Agatha Christie’s Crooked House. Now he has a cast in place, with Gemma Arterton, Gabriel Byrne, Julie Andrews and Matthew Goode signing on.

Adapted for the big screen by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes and Tim Rose Price, the new cinematic version of the tale will roughly follow the book's plot, which finds a murder happening in the strange old house that is home to three generations of the same family.

One of them just happens to be an eccentric multi-millionaire, and suspicion falls on a young female member of the family. A detective who takes the case must figure out if she’s really the killer – or simply being framed, with her life on the line.

"The story has a couple of fresh sides to it that I didn't remember from Christie's work," LaBute tells Variety. "There's a love story, which didn't feature strongly in many of her books, so that seemed very different to me and fresh. Plus it's quite morally ambiguous, which also appealed to me."

With $20 million to play with, LaBute will kick off shooting on the movie this summer in England. After that, there’s a chance he could segue into a reunion with In The Company of Men star Aaron Eckhart for a sharp new drama.


I just read finished the book and it was fantastic! Agatha is the HBIC of mystery writing.

Flawless Gemma thanks you for your time....

From 'Potter' to 'Apes': How Much More Violent Can PG-13 Movies Get?

After nearly three decades, the PG-13 rating seems to have outlived its usefulness. 

Make no mistake, the PG-13 rated movies are getting edgier and rougher -- including, notably, the final “Harry Potter” installments, and the even more brutal “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” that debuted last weekend. 

Especially at “Apes,” unsuspecting child-accompanied parents may have found themselves wondering just how much more ape-thwacking, electrocuting, cop-pummeling onscreen action it would take to push the simian origin story a notch deeper into marketing no-no land.

Meanwhile, a genial Oscar-bait historical film that features a four-letter word in just one scene got clobbered with the dreaded R rating -- as do any number of films with milder sex than you’d see on HBO in primetime.

Sony/PIAS Warehouse Burnt Down in UK Riots

A Sony distribution warehouse in North London was burned to the ground around 4:00 a.m. GMT this morning during the third straight night of riots in the UK, as the BBC reports. The 200,000 square-foot center housed the entire inventory of PIAS UK, the primary distribution hub for more than 150 independent labels.

No injuries were reported in the blaze, but all inventory is feared lost. XL/Beggars, Warp, Rough Trade, Domino, 4AD, Sub Pop, Secretly Canadian, Jagjaguwar, Drag City, Thrill Jockey, FatCat, Kompakt, Mute, Ninja Tune, Vice, and Soul Jazz are among those affected.

Prior to the blaze, the manager of Rough Trade East Tweeted that Trumans Brewery, the arts and media quarter that houses the store, was on lockdown and that the store had to be closed "as a precaution to ensure staff and customers can get home safe tonight." Today, Rough Trade is encouraging customers to assist in cleanup around the city.

Lara Stone: Lady Gaga is not sexy at all

 Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If there's anyone who knows a thing or two about being sexy, it's half-Dutch, half-British model Lara Stone. The 26-year-old, who bears a distinctive gap-toothed grin and a cup-size not commonly associated with a catwalk model, is so in-demand that former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld thought she was so sexy she dedicated a whole issue of the magazine to her, while Calvin Klein signed her up to model for them exclusively.

But while we beg to disagree - she smoulders as the face and body of Calvin Klein's latest underwear range - Stone has her own opinions on what's sexy and what's not.
"Lady Gaga, for example, walking around in her bra and knickers and being really sexy but still she's not sexy at all, to me," she told Stylist

- The vibe is very good on the AP Reunion set despite some of the cast members' past, well-publicized ordeals (i.e Tara Reid's life).
- Encourages you again to smoke before viewing A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.
- Says he has a very different look in Total Recall, and there are bizarre things going on with his body and his hair.
- Knows jack shit about Star Trek 2 but scenes have been written.
- Fans are crabby about lack of Star Trek 2.

"American Idol" Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe is way too smart to play coy with the judges who helped resurrect the show -- Jennifer LopezSteven Tyler and Randy Jackson have all re-signed.

Nigel made the announcement on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this AM, saying, "I am delighted to say that all three judges, along with the brilliant host of 'American Idol' are back for the next season."

The buzz is ... Jennifer got a huge pay bump -- from $12 million last season to $20 mil next season.  Steven Tyler still has a year to go before his contract is up, but we're hearing he got an increase as well.

Jill Zarin Contemplates Leaving 'The Real Housewives Of New York'

She's the queen bee of New York City but this socialite's days on the small screen may be numbered. On Saturday night, Jill Zarin and her husband, Bobby enjoyed dinner at Savanna's in Southampton where he was overheard telling Jill she should not return for another season of "The Real Housewives of New York."

“Bobby made it clear that it was Jill’s decision but couldn’t understand what she would have to gain from returning to a fifth season,” Luann a friend at the next table tells me. “Her daughter is in college and it’s time to take her parents on the cruise of a lifetime they have always wanted to do. Plus the success of her Skweez Couture and other deals she has coming up are a full-time job.”

Jill, who doesn’t need the $265,000 a season each lady earns, has never been the last to leave a party but knows that when it is time to make her exit, it's best to do so on a high note.

“The 'New York' show has been super successful but next season will never top the numbers they have now and after the failures of D.C. and Miami shows, everyone thinks the high point of the franchise is behind them not in front of them,” a Bravo insider tells me. “Everything has to come to an end. And the reunion show Part 2 ratings were very disappointing.”

A spokesperson for Jill did confirm that she was at the Southampton restaurant with her husband but declined to comment on whether Jill had made any decision about her future with the show. However, I was told that her shapewear line was picked up by major department stores during market week last week and to expect some big news about her other products in the upcoming weeks.

Although no final decisions have been made, Jill is hoping to be freed from her Bravo contract -- she has two more years to fulfill her reality TV obligation. Although we can't imagine the New York housewives sans the fiery redhead, it sounds like we may have to get used to it.

Kris and Bruce Jenner Renew Their Wedding Vows

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After 20 years of marriage Kris and Bruce Jenner decided to commemorate their love and wedding anniversary the only way they know how - with a lavish, televised vow renewal ceremony.
The reality TV couple were joined by their over-sized brood for the well documented nuptials which took place while the family holidayed in Bora Bora back in April.
And to go against every normal wedding tradition, the entire wedding party wore white.

Taking place on a hilltop above the Hilton Bora Bora Nui Resort the service was officiated by a Tahitian priest wearing full traditional costume.

Bruce, 61, and Kris, 55, sipped champagne and held hands as they made their way up to the wedding site wearing floral head garlands.
They were accompanied by Kourtney, 32, with baby Mason and Scott Disick, Kim, 30 with her fiancé Kris Humphries, Rob, 24, and their two youngest daughters Kylie, 15, and Kendall, 13.

Only Khloe, 26, and husband Lamar Odom were absent due to his playing schedule for the LA Lakers at the time.
The couple exchanged vows and new rings before Bruce reportedly hi-fived the children.
In true Kardashian fashion the entire ceremony was filmed for an upcoming episode of their E! show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Meanwhile Kim is set to be the next family member to walk down the aisle with fiancé Kris in less than two week's time.
The pair got engaged in May after Kris proposed with a custom-designed 20.5-carat Lorrain Schwartz diamond ring.

US website Radar has revealed there will be a star-studded guest-list, with the likes of Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye West expected.
A source said: 'I know Jennifer Lopez and Justin Bieber are invited.
'Selena Gomez was invited too but she is performing in New Jersey on the day of the wedding so she can't go.
'Will Smith and Jada will be guests, and of course Ryan Seacrest and Eva Longoria.'
The wedding is scheduled for later this month in Montecito, California.

Still engaged English male post

Henry Cavill says Hollywood is being stormed with British talent who are all “hitting their peak at the same time”.

The British actor will portray Superman and his alter ego Clark Kent in director Zack Snyder’s movie, Superman: Man of Steel, which is due for release in 2013.

The 28-year-old star believes the rise of English actors in movies at the moment is down to a blend of good timing and the quality of talent that is being nurtured.

"I think maybe it’s an experience thing", he told Total Film. “I’ve done quite a few jobs over an 11-year career and maybe it just so happens that all the Brits are hitting their peak at the same time. No matter what age we are, we just seem to be coming into our stride.

The Walking Dead: What Really Happened to Fired Showrunner Frank Darabont
by Kim Masters

When Frank Darabont appeared on a Comic-Con panel July 22 to promote The Walking Dead, he didn't realize he was a dead man walking. Neither did the cast and crew. Everyone was shocked when news broke three days later that AMC had taken the extraordinary step of firing Darabont from the network's biggest ratings hit.

In hot, sticky Atlanta, where production on the second season had been under way since June, the cast was summoned to a lunch meeting with AMC VP scripted programming Ben Davis, who confirmed that Darabont was out. The crew was briefed separately. One insider says those gathered were stunned at "the duplicity of AMC" for having used Darabont to promote the show at Comic-Con before firing him. And they were angry about the lack of explanation; they were simply told, cryptically, "This isn't working." Above all, they were disheartened. "It's a crushing blow," says the insider. "Even when you have a hit, they can still destroy you."

Awkward and vaguely defensive "House" interview with David Shore

(R.I.P. non-sucky Huddy ;___;)

Never did I think I'd be given the opportunity to conduct an interview with House creator, David Shore. But, if there's one thing the TCA press tour has taught me, it's that a badge can get you just about anything. Shore and I discussed Charlyne Yi's new role, the problem with ambiguous endings and Lisa Edelstein's absence. Throughout the interview, you'll see my afterthoughts in parentheses.

Nice to meet you! I write about your show weekly.
David Shore:
Well, thank you, I think.

(At this point, I'm praying that he hasn't read my piece on last year's finale. And then I realize I'm me and there's no way he has ever read anything I've written.)

Collapse )

I didn't think House really WAS trying to kill Cuddy or anyone else, but it really did look that way and realistically, he'd be accused/charged of attempted murder or second-degree whatever, so it'll just seem weird if they kinda ignore that on the show. Eeergh, it's so awkward when creators get defensive like this. IDK about Charlyne Yi, man.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar is engaged

Mark-Paul Gosselaar has found a new love and is getting married to advertising executive Catriona McGinn, PEOPLE has exclusively learned.

Gosselaar, 36, whose divorce from Lisa Ann Russell was finalized in May, proposed recently with a 5 carat cushion-cut diamond ring, custom designed by his friend, jeweler Neil Lane.

"He couldn't wait to propose," Lane tells PEOPLE. "He was so excited to have found the woman of his dreams."

The former star of Saved by the Bell and current star of Franklin & Bash has two children, son Michael, 7, and daughter Ava, 5, from his marriage to Russell.

No wedding date has been set.


SyFy orders an extra episode of Eureka to wrap up the series!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For more than five years, Eureka's barmy brainiacs have brought us nothing but joy—and we expected nothing less from our set visit today to that happiest of all places.

Sadly, instead of rejoicing with the cast over last week's sixth-season pickup (albeit for just six episodes), we arrived hours after Syfy announced that Eureka's fifth season—airing next summer—would be actually be its last.

At least we had a chance to commiserate with the stars and showrunner Jaime Paglia, who flew up to Vancouver this morning to address the cast and crew on the set's Global Dynamics rotunda

Over phony Vinspressos at the Café Diem set, star Joe Morton (Henry) told us, "People wanted 13 episodes [for season six], but six is better than nothing. Unfortunately now we're left with nothing. So it was a bit of a shock."

The timing couldn't be worse: Eureka, currently airing season "4.5" (yes, they have a confusing broadcast schedule) on Syfy, is almost finished shooting its fifth and last season. (To air next year. See, confusing.)

And this morning, everyone believed the fifth-season finale—already written and scheduled to film in a few days—would have to serve as the series finale.

Oh thank God! That's extremely nice of SyFy considering the circumstances.

Kate Moss wants to hang out with Cher Lloyd

WE'VE been told that London party hound Kate Moss wants to hang out with her. Despite the 19-year age gap, Mossy is a big fan of the X Factor star’s chart-topping single Swagger Jagger.

Kate Moss also finds the bolshy singer’s fiery attitude very amusing, apparently. We’re told: “Kate loves Cher’s cockiness and bravado. She’s been playing her new song at home and singing along to the: ‘You can’t stop looking at me, staring at me,’ bit.

“Kate said she’d like to hang out with Cher and introduce her to her strict circle of north London friends.

“She was telling us that Cher Lloyd reminds her of herself as a youngster, when she first started modeling and mixing in showbiz circles. She thinks they have the same brash spirit.

Kate is fascinated by her sense of style and personality. She’s also intrigued by her background of being a traveller.”

The supermodel, 37, is a huge fan of The X Factor. Rumours were flying around last year that she might appear as a guest judge. Kate’s even been down to the X Factor studios a few times with her daughter Lila Grace, eight.

Hippy chick Kate also joined a 20-strong group of travellers for a raucous night of singing and dancing in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, a while ago.

We’d love to be a fly on the wall around Chez Moss when Cher, 18, rocks up with her swag on.

character stuff from girl with the dragon tattoo

Hot on the heels of the trailer release for Tanner Hall, the 2009 movie featuring the new Lisbeth Salander, Rooney Mara, comes a full portfolio of portraits and bios for every significant character in David Fincher‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

These are appropriately grim images for the so-called ‘feel bad movie of Christmas,’ but for those who want to know what actor corresponds to their favorite (or most-hated) character in the original Swedish film, they’ll do the trick. Think of these like an old-school trading card set for the film. Hey Topps, can you get on that? (Is Topps still around?)

Lindsay is a fan of quartz

Let’s get this out of the way. Lindsay Lohan was not really buying drugs outside a bar in Venice Beach yesterday. She’s an idiot but she’s street smart. Well, at least she’s street smart enough not to buy drugs in broad daylight. I hope…

X17 taped a video of Lindsay Lohan outside of Hal’s Bar & Grill on Tuesday. At one point, a tatted up man (your stereotypical suspicious-looking drug dealer) came up to her and handed Lindsay’s friend a bag of powdery white substance. After her friend checked it out, Lindsay takes a Ziploc baggie from a different guy and gives him cash. Many assume she was buying drugs.

Lindsay’s publicist Steve Honig has denied these allegations says X17, “Knowingly and consciously making inferences about Lindsay that are completely untrue, and creating a fictitious story to get more people to visit their site. We were not given a chance to comment on this story before it went up, and no effort was made to gather the facts about what actually occurred. When I addressed this with the agency, they told me ‘we’re not the New York Times.’ They have made a horrific mistake; the worst part is, they know it but don’t care.”

Honig says that while what was in the baggie were rocks and crystals, it wasn’t illegal as they consisted of “sea jasper, a meteor, rose quartz and quartz,” purchased by a friend of hers from a store down the street. Riiight. Because that makes complete sense to have your friend buy you rocks from down the street just to have you inspect them before buying it yourself.

Okay, so maybe Lindsay IS dumb enough to buy drugs in broad daylight. Granted, she’s not above planting stories to screw with the media so take this with a grain of powdery white substance.

Why I’m Not Looking Forward To 'The Help'

I picked up a copy of Kathryn Stockett’s bestselling novel The Help at an airport bookstore. I figured the four-hour flight to Texas would be enough time to absorb 544 plot-driven pages, and reading the novel during one of my frequent trips south seemed appropriate. For some readers, The Help calls up memories of being nurtured and cared for by black women who might have been more like mothers to them than their own white birth mothers. The story conjures for me, however, the labor–and, at times, humiliation–those domestic workers endured. True, some of those black women also no doubt felt genuine affection for the white families they worked for. But the dictates of race and class strained those emotional ties. Black women entrusted with the care of white households and children were often still forced to enter back doors and use separate facilities. Like it or not, this vexed dynamic of interracial intimacy and dehumanization is one of the founding stories of our nation.

Many black people claim mothers, aunts and grandmothers who were (or are) maids and caregivers for white families. When I was a little girl growing up in California, I’d spend summers in Texas with my great aunt who worked for the Blankenships. Some mornings she’d pile me, sleepy-eyed, into her car and drive to one of her small town’s more affluent white neighborhoods. I’d color, draw or doze in the den that doubled as young Matthew’s playroom while my aunt would brew coffee and polish the already-clean-looking kitchen to a bleachy, scented shine. When Matthew awoke, we’d play together. Though my aunt worked for his mother, we were still too young to understand the boundaries of race and class that separated them and us. I still found it strange that my aunt called his mother Mrs. Blankenship while the younger white woman called my aunt by her first name. In a small act of rebellion, I refused to adhere to the southern custom of saying “Yes, ma’am” and “No, ma’am.”

The Situation Wants To Be The Next De Niro. Or The Rock

Not content with merely being a a stomach flashing reality tycoon, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino wants a chance to flex his acting muscles, which he seems to think are as big as his biceps. In fact, he wants to follow in the footsteps of great thespians like Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Leonardo DiCaprio…and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Let’s aim for The Rock and see what happens, Mike. To be fair, he does have some similarities with this list of masters. He shares the Italian heritage with Rob, Al and Leo, and both The Sitch and The Rock are known for being shirtless. Plus they both have “The” in their names. He’ll be a natural!

He recently opened up to In Touch Online about his next career move. “Obviously, I look up to De Niro and Pacino, and for someone who’s closer in age Leo [DiCaprio] — I’d eventually like to make great movies someday,” told “But I’m trying to go in a trajectory similar to ‘The Rock,’ [Dwayne Johnson], who took his bold personality and phrases from the WWE into film.” We’re not sure if you can jump from the Rock track to the De Niro track, but Mike’s sure gonna try! He’s making his acting debut with a cameo in the upcoming Three Stooges remake. Maybe someday he’ll be trading those vodka bottles for Oscars.

The Star Wars Porn Parody Is Actually Funny?

Axel Braun, director of the Batman and Avatar porn parodies, has finished principal photography on Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody, which is in 3D and releases on DVD in September. Judging from the safe for work trailer below it may be genuinely funny, rather than just labelled parody to get around copyright laws while being devoid of humor. Take this exchange for example (take it all).

Luke: How did my father die?
Obi-Wan: A young Jedi named Darth Vader who was a pupil of mine until I cut his arms and legs off and left him burning in a river of lava . . .
Luke: I think I want to go home now.

It’ll also be interesting to see them explain how Lexington Steele can be Seth Gamble’s father. Rounding out the rest of the cast are Allie Haze as Princess Leia, Tom Byron as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Rocco Reed as Han Solo, and Alec Knight as Chewbacca. One of the press releases informs us Chewbacca will be having a sex scene, which totally wasn’t one of our concerns. *quickly deletes Google search history* Speaking of Chewbacca, check out the safe for work pictures after the trailer for some candid set photos.

Lifetime orders Jennifer Love Hewitt's movie "Client List" to series

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s The Client List has scored something few Lifetime original movies ever do: a series pickup!

The female-centric network has placed a 10-episode order for a drama series based on last year’s flick to premiere in 2012.

Hewitt will both reprise her Client List role — which earned the actress a Golden Globe nomination — and serve as executive producer of the project. Additionally, Lifetime has inked a development deal with Hewitt’s production company Fedora Films.

Client List
tells the scandalous story of a strapped-for-cash housewife who runs a prostitution ring day spa after her husband abandons her.

It was actually pretty good for a Lifetime movie, but how it is going to work as a series? 

Brit Marling talks about being an "It Girl"

Brit Marling is amused, if a little perplexed, at being dubbed Hollywood’s “It Girl.”

“Has there ever been an ‘It Guy’?,” the cerebral and ethereal actor/screenwriter asked rhetorically in a recent phone interview.

Marling, 27, emerged from obscurity at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, when she starred in two microbudgeted movies that she also co-wrote: “Another Earth,” a gentle drama that takes place as scientists have discovered a planet identical to ours; and “Sound of My Voice,” in which she plays a mysterious cult leader who claims to be from the future.

Both movies were picked up at Sundance by Fox Searchlight.
Since Sundance, she’s made a movie with Richard Gere, has turned down an offer from Steven Soderbergh and is contemplating roles that would have her working with Robert Redford or Tom Cruise.

And journalists, at Sundance and during this summer’s rollout of “Another Earth” (it opens Friday, Aug. 12, in Salt Lake City) stress Marling’s striking beauty and intelligence — sometimes acting shocked, or a bit cynical, that both come in the same package. (“How to Succeed in Hollywood Despite Being Really Beautiful” was the headline of a New York Times profile.)

TBS cancels Lopez Tonight

TBS's George Lopez late-night show Lopez Tonight has just two more tomorrows left: The network just announced that it has canceled the low-rated talker after two seasons, with its final broadcast set to air Thursday. A network spokesman called the move a "difficult decision," but really, it shouldn't have been: Ratings for Lopez were awful. How bad? So bad that reruns of nineties sitcoms on teeny-tiny Teen Nick drew nearly twice as many viewers as Lopez in key demos a few weeks ago (a Lopez number generally hovers around 250,000 viewers in the adults 18 to 49 demo TBS targets). Of course, Lopez didn't get much help from his lead-in, Conan, which has also been turning in soft ratings (around 700,000 adults 18 to 49 viewers, not counting DVR viewership and repeats). So did Coco kill Lopez by pushing him out of the marquee 11 p.m. slot?

Hardly. Fact is, while some pundits tried to spin Conan O'Brien's bumping of Lopez Tonight to midnight a little under a year ago as a demotion for Lopez, if anything, it was a life preserver. Lopez Tonight was turning in mediocre numbers when it aired at 11 p.m. and its renewal for a season two was hardly assured before O'Brien entered the picture. It's possible TBS might have given the show another season — it costs less to produce than O'Brien's show — but, most likely, Lopez would've almost certainly ended up where it is today: canceled.

As for O'Brien, today's Lopez news will likely turn a renewed spotlight on his ratings, which have undeniably faded in recent months as the media buzz over his move to cable has worn off. Rivals such as Comedy Central have been unrelenting in their attack on O'Brien, issuing press releases randomly calling out Coco's numbers in a bid to point out the show isn't doing that well. But two points of defense here for O'Brien. First, his TBS lead-ins have been pretty dreadful. (Quick: Name an original series you watch on TBS. Didn't think so.) Secondly, it was a given the ratings for Conan would drift downward as the novelty of a big-time network star on cable died down. The challenge now for O'Brien, his producers, and TBS is to find a way to generate buzz and excitement around the show, in order to remind folks he's still slinging laughs at 11 p.m. Might we suggest enlisting Justin Timberlake to team up with Coco for a history of Irish drinking songs?

Online petition for Bert and Ernie to become a married couple

An online petition launched Monday argues that for the sake of children, PBS and "Sesame Street" should acknowledge that long-term “roommates” Bert and Ernie are gay, and allow the muppets to marry.

According to the petition posted to and promoted on Facebook, if the beloved characters were to disclose the true nature of their relationship, it “would show children and their parents that not only is it acceptable but also teach children that homophobia is wrong, bullying is wrong and that "Sesame Street" should recognize that there are LGBT relationships, families, and include them in their show.”

Nicki Minaj Breaks Female Rapper Record With ‘SuperBass’


In what will be sure to rattle the cages of many of her naysayers, Nicki Minaj has once again surpassed the achievements of female rappers everywhere on the Billboard Hot 100.

This time with her single ‘SuperBass’.

This weeks #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, ‘SuperBass‘ is the highest charting single to be released by a female Rapper in the last nine years since Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’ reached #2 in 2002.

This comes as phenomenal news for the entertainer’s fans as the single has achieved this feat without the aid of a featured artist, highlighting Minaj’s ever growing star power.

Now certified double platinum, ‘Bass’ has sold more units that any single released by Rap Queen Lil Kim whose feud with the Pop star was overshadowed by the success of Minaj’s #1 album ‘Pink Friday’ which has sold over 1.5 million copies since its release in November 2010.

9/11 Drama "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" Set for Christmas Day 2011; 1st Photo

Warner Bros. thinks it has a serious Oscar contender this year with Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and it’s not tough to see why. 

You’ve got a thrice Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (The Reader), Oscar-winning leads Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, and it will be released in a limited theatrical run on December 25th so it can qualify for Oscar consideration.  It will expand nationwide on January 20, 2012.  Wouldn’t you know it: Oscar nominations are announced on January 24th.  What a coincidence.

This is my long-winded way of leading up to the news that Warner Bros. has released the first image from the movie.  It’s an image of Oskar (Thomas Horn) being held by his father (Hanks) even though the events of the book center around Oskar’s father dying in the 9/11 attacks and Oskar trying to uncover the secret of the key he found in his father’s closet.  Apparently the film has found a way to incorporate Hanks’ character (most likely through flashback). 


Oskar (Thomas Horn) is convinced that his father (Tom Hanks), who died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, has left a final message for him hidden somewhere in the city. Feeling disconnected from his grieving mother (Sandra Bullock) and driven by a relentlessly active mind that refuses to believe in things that can’t be observed, Oskar begins searching New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he found in his father’s closet. His journey through the five boroughs takes him beyond his own loss to a greater understanding of the observable world around him.

Yoko Ono Honored

Yoko Ono is one of the world’s most famous Japanese people, primarily using her fame and money to promote art and peace. Her peace activism has recently been recognised through the Hiroshima Art Prize. Even at 78, she has a certain rock-star grace, no doubt shaped by her marriage to John Lennon. In trademark fedora hat and sunglasses, she addressed a full-capacity audience on August 4 at Mori Art Museum with a message for Japan in its post-quake state.

Leading up to this year’s anniversary of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bomb attacks, Ono talked about how the March 11 disasters give a new perspective to the nuclear tragedies of 1945. As an expatriate Japanese, she has observed dramatic changes in international reactions between 1945 and 2011. And as a young person in post-war America, Ono witnessed indifference and a general notion that Japan “had it coming”. However, this year, the artist saw people all over New York expressing sorrow and “praying for Japan”.

'Dance Moms' Turn The Tables On Kids

As if it wasn't stressful enough to manage the careers of their little ones, this week the dance moms themselves are made to take the stage, shining a light on the origins of their daughters' exceptional talent.
While some mothers have some dance experience, most agree the exercise is not a pleasurable one but nevertheless go through with the routine to keep head instructor Abby Lee Miller at peace.

But one mother upsets the others when she creates her own solo. The newest mother at the Abby Lee Dance Studio is Cathy and she is already rubbing the other mothers up the wrong way, so when they unite for a dance routine and she steals the spotlight, tempers fly.

"She changed the dance! She's doing a solo out there," Abby says in disbelief as she watches backstage. "What is she doing? She's trying to upstage everyone!"

Are Leaked Set Photos And Videos Ruining Comic Book Movies?

With dozens of photos and videos leaking from the set ofThe Dark Knight Rises, and the promise of many more fromThe Avengers, are they ruining the movies for us or are WE to blame? Here's my take...

These days, if high profile movies like The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises are being filmed outside, you can guarantee that paparazzi and fans alike will be there snapping as many photos as possible. And who can blame them?!The professionals make a bundle from sites who want high quality images which will bring in a huge amount of traffic, and I know I’d be out there with a camera if Batman and Bane were fighting in my city. The question is, are these photos ruining the movies for us? In many ways, yes, I think they are. I’m sure you’ll remember me posting dozens upon dozens of pictures sent in from the Manchester and Liverpool sets of Captain America: The First Avenger last year. Did they or any others really spoil the film? Well, no, not really. However, I’d be lying to say I didn’t find it more than a little distracting seeing “New York” and knowing full well that it was instead two English cities, both of which are just a few hours drive away from where I live. While the minor details revealed in these types of photos are far from a big deal, the recent ones taken in Pittsburgh on the set of the latest Batman movie are surely the perfect examples of those which ARE spoiling the big screen experience for us all.

Blake Shelton's Wild Ride

Blake Shelton is sweet on tweeting. Almost daily, no matter how busy he is, he whips out his iPhone, punches in messages of 140 characters or less, and—bam!—his close to 600,000 Twitter followers know exactly what’s on his mind.

Mostly, the Oklahoma-born country star makes jokes. “I’m so drunk right now I just tried to change the channel on my aquarium …” reads one of the more printable entries. He taps out an “I’m so drunk …” missive nearly every day, or its equally sozzled cousin, “I’m so hungover. …” Shelton has said that execs at his record label have expressed concern about some of his tweets, but they’re meant to amuse. “It’s just a way to say something ridiculous. Yeah, I drink a lot,” says the singer, whose beverage of choice is Bacardi rum mixed with Crystal Light, “but I’m not drunk every night.”

Sure, it's her job to talk Swift up. But anyone who's seen Swift at work can't question her devotion to her fans.

Which is where illness comes in. In July Swift reluctantly postponed some shows on her US Speak Now tour. "I've never had to do that before, it was devastating," says Swift, a woman for whom postpone isn't usually in the vocabulary.

But that vocabulary and, more problematically, her singing voice were out of action due to a nasty case of bronchitis.

Camp Swift let the singer recover, with theories that a combination of singing in the rain at an outdoor show ("She thought if the fans are out there getting wet, she would get wet with them," Erickson says) and hugging a random flu-riddled fan may have led to the bronchitis.

Not that Swift is being any less hands-on since kicking bronchitis' ass. Her people suggested at the height of the H1N1 virus pandemic that maybe she should limit getting up close and personal with fans. Swift disagreed and carried on with her flesh-pressing business as normal.

Backstage at Swift's New Jersey show (she'll do four shows in Newark's Prudential Centre - her promoter says they could have easily done another four) the 21 year old is a true professional.
