There's a new movie coming out starring Patrick Wilson (son of WTVT Fox 13's John Wilson) as a bitter and suicidal space station captain and Liv Tyler as his new assistant. Because playing a space station captain in a sci-fi dramedy would make you bitter adn suicidal, wouldn't it?
The Hollywood Reporter says Space Station '76, which also stars Matt Bomer, Marisa Coughlan and Jerry O'Connell is an ode to 1970s suburbia, as envisioned by writer/director Jack Plotnick. "People think that the 1970s were about the discos and the free love, but in the suburbs you were left feeling, ‘Where’s the party?’ " Plotnick said. "So the emotional story is what I felt in the '70s. My parents weren’t happy together and they stuck it out for the kids. It's an homage to them. And in one way, I think we're like these solitary ships in space trying to connect."
Voice coach and profane kiss-off singer Cee-Lo Green was a little too grabby for someone's taste, because the LAPD is apparently investigating him for sexual battery. We probably all know what Cee-Lo is going to say about all that, too.
TMZ says cops were investigating an unspecified claim, apparently visiting a restaurant in downtown L.A., although whether that's related to the complaint is anyone's guess. Green denied the allegation to the site, and said he hadn't been to the restaurant in three months: "Nothing ever happened there or anywhere else," he said. So, you're saying it is related to the restaurant, then?
It used to be Brad Pitt didn't even want to marry Angelina Jolie. Now he's so pro-marriage, he proposed to Angie in April and has decided to donate $100,000 for the fight for marriage equality in four states. Call The Juice* crazy, but it's possible next week's election may have had something to do with the timing.
"It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days," Pitt wrote in a Wednesday email to members of the Human Rights Campaign, according to People. "If you're like me, you don't want to have to ask yourself on the day after the election, what else could I have done?" HRC is fighting for gay rights and marraige equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington state.
What's worse than harassing 82-year-old uber-actor Gene Hackman and his wife at a restaurant in New Mexico? Getting b-slapped by 82-year-old uber-actor Gene Hackman and his wife at a restaurant in New Mexico.
Some dimwit homeless guy named Bruce Becker, 63, was apparently harassing the couple outside a Santa Fe eatery and called Gene's wife Betsy Arakawa the dreaded C-word. Hackman, of the old breed, did what any real man would do and socked Becker across the chops. So then Becker called the cops, who didn't seem very concerned that an 82-year-old man stood up for his wife.
Another day, another arrest for Terminator 2 star Edward Furlong. This time it's for domestic violence; it's only a matter of time before the term "bath salts" get mentioned in one of his police reports.
The perpetually troubled actor was arrested for domestic violence early Tuesday after allegedly grabbing his girlfriend’s arm at Los Angeles International Airport. E! Online said the actor was charged with felony domestic violence and taken to jail on $50,000 bail.
It's been seven years since Reese Witherspoon recorded some music for Walk the Line, famously fraught with her ambivalence about the whole process. She may have gotten over that stage fright, though, because word is she'll be singing again -- this time with Michael Buble.
Us Weekly says the actress is working on a deal to do a duet with Canadian Buble. That's just the kind of song a woman in her demographic -- a 36-year-old mother of three -- would want to hear!
By now we all know Justin Timberlake apologized for that video making fun of homeless people his doofy friend made, so can we squeeze one more item out of Jessica Biel's wedding? We can? Oh good, because Jess has said she plans on changing her name. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean she'll become a better actress.
"Yes, I'm changing my name," the 30-year-old told People, skipping over the disconcerting fact she has a brother also named Justin. "My professional name will still be the same, but for life, yes, I think it sounds great. I think I really won the jackpot of names."
Well, no, the jackpot of names would be Babatunde Omoroga Adebimpe, but the lead singer of TV on the Radio already has that one. Really, just say it out loud -- it makes the whole day brighter. And help you forget you made movies like Stealth and Powder Blue.
If there's one person tired of hearing gossip about herself, it's Christina Aguilera, who took a moment on Thursday during a keynote Q&A at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Conference to complain about bloggers and Simon Cowell. Oh, please, do tell us how you hate people who talk about you, celebrity who makes a living by being talked about.
"Now everyone is a critic," she said of tabloids and bloggers, both of which The Juice* are technically members. "I don't read blogs. It's just God-knows-who in Buttf--- wherever writing hate s---. You can't take it seriously. I'm sure you've all been hated on at some point by buttf--- people."
Hey, who told her it was our job to hate on people? And you know who else she hates? That hater of haters, Simon Cowell, whom she came to realize was a real jerk when she started doing a job like his on The Voice.
The Conan the Barbarian movie trilogy you never wanted is finally going to happen, because Arnold Schwarzeneger is part of a deal with Universal Pictures to make a third movie, The Legend of Conan. Of course, it wouldn't hurt if they just pretended Conan the Destroyer never even happened. Oh wait, that's exactly what they're doing.
"After the original seminal movie, all that came after looked silly to me,” producer Chris Morgan, who came up with the idea and may write the script, told Deadline.com. "This movie picks up Conan where Arnold is now in his life, and we will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story. I love the property of Conan so much that I wouldn't touch it unless we came up with something worthy. We think this is a worthy successor to the original film. Think of this as Conan's Unforgiven."
Rapper Lil Wayne got a scare on a Thursday flight after he suffered something like a seizure and the plane made an emergency landing. You mean he got through airport security with that grill?
Well, a seizure isn't quite accurate, as early reports had claimed, because after he landed in Texas (TMZ didn't provide a city) he was taken to a hospital, where a more specific cause was determined. "Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration," his rep told MTV News in a statement. "He is at home on doctor-mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love."
It's always nice to head into the weekend with some good news, so we're happy to say Robin Roberts called Good Morning America on Thursday to tell the show and guest Oprah Winfrey she's doing much better after a bone marrow transplant for myelodysplastic syndrome.
"It's Day 35. Thirty five days ago, I had my bone marrow transplant. It is a journey," Roberts said on the phone, noting she's "incredibly blessed to be doing as well as I am. Some days I do feel like I am 35 days old and can't get my head off the pillow, but those days are becoming fewer and fewer."
Roberts said it's tough dealing with the disease in the public eye, but "it's a privilege to be a messenger." (Watch part of the interview below.) She also told Winfrey she's being sure to write every feeling and event down.
Sean Diddy Combs was shaken up but unhurt after a car accident in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. Well, he was hurting, but not so much he had to go to the hospital.
The L.A. Times says Combs' driver crashed into a Lexus that made a left turn in front of their Escalade on Sunset Boulevard. Everyone at the scene complained of being in pain, but no one was taken to the hospital. That's a legal move Diddy may come to regret, but he said he'd get his own treatment. The Cadillac, unfortunately, took on for the team.
One of Justin Timberlake's friends is such a nice guy, he decided to use the occasion of JT's $6.5 million wedding Jessica Biel to show a video mocking homeless people. We'd show it to you, but the guy threatened to sue Gawker for posting just 20 seconds of it, so you'd better believe The Juice* Legal Defense Fund isn't large enough to cope with that.
The video, which runs more than eight minutes, was shot by L.A. real estate agent Justin Huchel, one of the 100 or so people invited to Puglia, Italy, last week for the festivities. He took the opportunity to show the video to all the wedding's guest, which may have resulted in a lot of awkward silence, because the dude is just making fun of poor people in Los Angeles. What a funnyman he must be!
In the video, which opens with a title card reading "Greetings from Your Hollywood Friends Who Just Couldn't Make It," Huchel asks questions of several people who are obviously homeless, or at least spend most of their time on the street. As Gawker points out, many of them are obviously drunk, high, or not right in the head.
