The Actor Has Some 'Scheduling Conflicts'
A while back we reported that Ben Affleck and Kristen Stewart would be possible co-stars in the upcoming movie Focus.

Kristen Stewart had not been confirmed yet, but word on the street is that once she did confirm, Ben dropped out. Hmmmmm… deets inside!

"Of course I will miss the show"
Antonio L.A. Reid, one of the judges on the US version of The X Factor has announced that he is leaving the show at the end of this season. Reid, a longtime producer and music mogul, has decided to hang up his reality TV judging/mentoring hat and focus on his career in the music business instead. There is only one week left of X Factor competition before season 2 comes to a close so we still have a little L.A. to look forward in our lives but he will NOT be on the judging panel next year.

Marvin Gaye III Calls The Project "Shameful"
Last week we learned that Lenny Kravitz had been cast as the lead in the upcoming Marvin Gaye biopic. I, for one, thought the casting choice was pretty much on point, and a few of you thought the same. There had been so much uproar over Zoe Saldana‘s casting in the Nina Simone biopic, and I really didn’t expect that kind of backlash here. But Marvin Gaye‘s son (Marvin Gaye III) has come forward asking Lenny Kravitz (a former schoolmate and friend to this day) to pull out of the project. Click inside to learn more.
The Sound Of Music with Julie Andrews. One of the many movies of my childhood. Like, for real. And it’s getting some sort of live remake on NBC… which is fine! I’m fine with that!

And although I haven’t listened to much Carrie Underwood lately, I understand that she’s crazy talented and well-respected so this can’t be too bad of an idea… right? Click inside to learn more!
