Your pop culture cheat sheet

Here's what's going on in the world of entertainment this morning:

  • The New York Times reports that reruns of the "Late Show with David Letterman" beat "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" last week. It was the second week in a row in which Letterman won the late night battle.
  • People reports that actor Jason Schwartzman ("Funny People") married clothing designer Brandy Cunningham in a "small ceremony" on July 11.
  • "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke is taking on "The Girl with the Red Riding Hood," a re-imagining of the classic fairy tale, according to Variety.
  • A fourth "Bourne" movie is in the works with Josh Zetumer attached to write it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
  • After being removed from "Big Brother" for tossing her microphone into a pool (among other rule violations), Chima Simone issued a statement apologizing for calling fellow houseguest Russell Kairouz, a Lebanese-American, “a terrorist,” according to EW.com: "I used a phrase that was insensitive given his Middle Eastern descent, and I apologize to all who are justifiably offended with my use of that racially charged term."
  • In theaters today: Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds" starring Brad Pitt, the family-friendly "Shorts" from director Robert Rodriguez and "Post Grad" starring Alexis Bledel ("Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants").
