Get a look at 'Thor'

Yes, that's Chris Hemsworth working those guns up there.

But that's besides the point. Marvel has unleashed more images from its upcoming movie "Thor," starring the aforementioned (jacked) Hemsworth as the Asgard warrior sent to live amongst humans, Natalie Portman as Jane and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.

Marvel has been whetting appetites for "Thor's" preview at San Diego Comic-Con for a while now, and these images seem to be adding to the anticipation.

The feature will find its way to theaters on May 6, 2011.

Haven't you always wanted Betty White on your T-shirt?

The public wants to see Betty White in everything from NBC's "Community" to a pin-up calendar, so it makes sense that clothing emblazoned with her cheerful face wouldn't be far behind.

Jerry Leigh Apparel has partnered with the 88-year-old star to bring you a line of T-shirts and hoodies that will debut in stores in August.

The hoodies come equipped with  MP3 player-ready washable earbuds, and bear slogans like "Long Live the Queen" and "White Heat" along with a likeness of White, for which Jerry Leigh Apparel snagged an exclusive license.

Portions of the sales from the T-shirts and hoodies will go towards the animal health organization Morris Animal Foundation, for which White is a trustee.

If you can't wait until August, you can buy a Betty White HoodieBuddie here.

'Pretty Little Liars': The homecoming hangover

After last week’s action-packed homecoming drama, I was sure we were in for a slow episode Tuesday, but “Pretty Little Liars” proved me wrong. Two fast-paced episodes in a row? Hallelujah.

In fact, the episode picked up right where it left off – with the girls searching for Emily at the homecoming dance. Though she was nowhere to be found, her cell phone sat on the ground beside a small pool of blood.

Meanwhile, a bloody Toby drove a bleeding Emily, who was passed out in the backseat of his car, to the hospital. We later found out from the assembly of police officers congregating at Emily’s house that he left her there alone, hurried home, exchanged the car for his motorcycle and skipped town.

Thank Bieber's success for 'Idol' age change

Even "American Idol" isn't immune to Bieber fever.

Judge Randy Jackson told MTV News that the incredible success of the 16-year-old singing sensation is one of the reasons the TV talent contest has lowered its minimum age requirement from 16 to 15 years of age.

"You're seeing stars like Justin Bieber," said 54-year-old Jackson, who kicked off season 10 auditions in Nashville last week. "There's a lot of kids that are getting better earlier. It's great."

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': Will Sarah Palin go to Listol's wedding?

Sandra Bullock was the hot topic this morning at the "Showbiz Tonight" meeting. In a custody hearing, the court may have unwittingly cleared the way for a possible reconciliation between Bullock and Jesse James.

James scored a big coup in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Janine Lindemulder when the court allowed James to move their daughter Sunny to Texas, where Bullock lives.

"Showbiz Tonight’s" Senior Producer Mark Balinsky said this morning, “It seems like Jesse is taking the first step in reconciliation with Sandra.” But could Sandra really take him back after what he did? Tune in to the "Showbiz Tonight" debate and find out.

Jon Hamm to guest star on 'Simpsons'

“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm is about to join an even madder cast –“The Simpsons”!

The 39-year-old actor will lend his voice to the hit Fox series in a mobster-themed episode to air in December. According to EW, Hamm will play an FBI supervisor whom Homer reports to when he goes undercover in prison to infiltrate a gangster’s inner circle.

“He has no patience for Homer,” said "Simpsons" executive producer Al Jean of Hamm’s character. “Homer asks if he can pick his undercover name, and finally Jon just says, ‘Your name will be Nicky Blue Pants Altosaxophony.’ Homer says, ‘Do I get to keep the name when I’m done with it?’ and Jon says, ‘No, it’s the property of the government.’”

And what was it like to work with the in-demand actor? “He was really funny. And handsome,” says Jean. “He had it all.”
