As was reported earlier today, Britney flew into NYC last night to attend the Fox Up Fronts event this afternoon. After a bit of anxious waiting, the announcement was finally made. More »
Last week we learned that singer Demi Lovato was one of the front-runners for the 4th judging spot on the upcoming second season of The X Factor and today we hear from TMZ that she officially signed on as judge. Now, just becuse TMZ is “confirming” the news, we really won’t know for absolute sure until we hear it from Fox themselves. As you may recall, we saw video earlier of Britney Spears in NYC today which is almost certainly confirmation that she, too, has signed on to judge The X Factor as the 3rd judge. Click below for the reported deets about Demi‘s X Factor signing. More »
Back in early April we learned that actor Ashton Kutcher nabbed the coveted role of the late Steve Jobs in a biopic about his life. Today we get our first look at Kutcher as Jobs on the set of the film, tentatively titled Steve Jobs: Get Inspired. As was noted before, Ashton does bear a striking resmeblence to the young Steve Jobs but many people have voiced their concerns that Kutcher may not be the right person to portray the Apple genius. I can’t say I’m convinced either. Nonetheless, the film is now in production … and Ashton is hard at work on the Jobs. More »

We're SO ALMOST There
For the past few days multiple sites have been republishing a report by E! News that claims that Britney Spears finally singed her $15 million dollar deal to judge the upcoming season of The X Factor.

Plans are reportedly in the works for our dear Britney to make an appearance at the Fox Up Fronts event (where the network announces the new & returning shows for next season) in NYC on Monday to officially announce the deal. Folks, we are SO close to the official confirmation but … we’re not there just yet. More »
"She's a good guy."
Back in February of last year, we learned officially that actress Marion Cotillard joined the cast of the forthcoming superhero sequel film Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. A couple of months later, it was revealed that Cotillard was cast to play a character named Miranda Tate … but it was widely speculated that Miranda Tate is merely a cover for another character — Talia Al Ghul, daughter of Ra’s Al Ghul (the villain featured in Batman Begins). Today we get to hear from Cotillard herself in the pages of the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter and learn, once and for all, which character she will be playing in The Dark Knight Rises.

The Remake Of 'Starbuck'
Okay, that title is a little cheekily misleading, you’ll have to forgive me. Vince Vaughn is not really a father to hundreds of children, he is in negotiations to star in the remake of the 2011 movie Starbuck, which premiered at last year’s Toronto film festival. The French Canadian movie tells the story of a middle aged man who finds out that he has fathered over 530 children through sperm donations. Do you think Vince is a good match for this role? More »

Angelina Out Cameron In
A few weeks ago there was talk of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt starring together in the upcoming Ridley Scott film, The Counselor. Brangelina haven’t been on the screen together since the days of Mr and Mrs Smith, where they met. But, alas, the acclaimed reunion on the silver screen wasn’t meant to be. Today we have learned that Angelina has been replaced by Cameron Diaz. The film, by the same guy who wrote No Country For Old Men, stars Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem and is dark and brooding. Do you think Cameron can handle it? More »
