Here's what's happening in the world of entertainment today:
- A representative for Tom Cruise is responding to comments made by former "Perfect Strangers" star Bronson Pinchot in a recent interview, according to EW.com. Pinchot claimed that Cruise made "constant unrelated homophobic comments" on the set of "Risky Business" in 1983. Cruise's rep tells the magazine, “Obviously, this is so far removed from who Tom Cruise is as a person, this must have been said in jest.”
- People reports that Michael Jackson's children were involved in a minor accident Wednesday involving a photographer following one of the family's vehicles. No one was injured, the magazine reports, and the incident is being investigated.
- Roman Polanski's legal team is now denying that he may go back to the U.S. voluntarily, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Attorney Herve Temime reportedly said that the director will continue to fight extradition.
- The curtain is coming down on "Shrek: The Musical." Variety reports that the show will close on January 3 after just over a year on Broadway, due to fluctuating box office.
