Abby Elliott leaves 'SNL'; Michael J. Fox may be back on TV; Shia LaBeouf swears off blockbusters
- Abby Elliott, daughter of actor Chris Elliott, has confirmed she's not returning to Saturday Night Live next season after four years on the show, twice her father's tenure, the New York Times says. Who's going to make fun of Zooey Deschanel and Angelina Jolie now?
- Every network is falling over themselves to find out more about Michael J. Fox's planned return to television in a new sitcom being developed by Sony Pictures Television for a 2013 release, New York magazine says. Because when Abby Elliot leaving SNL is big news, you can tell the networks are desperate for a hit.
- Shia LaBeouf, who made his name on movies like Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, has said he's never going to work for the big Hollywood studios now, the Hollywood Reporter says. The 26-year-old probably assures that plan when he says the executives in Tinseltown won't let you be a "visionary," but instead "give you the money, then get on a plane and come to the set and stick a finger up your ass and chase you around for five months."
