Will Arnett came to 'Arrested Development's' rescue

While you may know Will Arnett from playing versions of the “the stunted, spoiled, filthy-rich dumb-ass," as GQ put it, throughout his career, the actor told the magazine in their September issue that he's ready to branch out.

In Fox's new sitcom "Running Wilde," he'll play Steve Wilde, the descendant of an oil tycoon who isn't above holding a competition with his neighbor to see who can purchase the smallest and most expensive Arabian horse. It may sound like the same obnoxious, wealthy character, but Wilde is different, Arnett pointed out: He's also a romantic who's bent on trying to regain the affection of a former sweetheart (played by Keri Russell).

“I'm moving out of my comfort zone," Arnett told GQ, "and right into my wheelhouse."

Billy Joel's music will get the spotlight on 'Glee'

Billy Joel fans, get ready to Gleek out! The singer has given the greenlight to a "Glee" episode featuring all of his greatest hits.

"I said, 'Yeah, go ahead, use my stuff,'" Joel, a fan of the smash Fox series, told Access Hollywood. "I was in a chorus when I was in high school, why not?"

Joel's song "Piano Man" was already featured on "Glee" last season, and was performed by guest star Neil Patrick Harris in an episode that earned him an Emmy over the weekend.

While the New York native is excited about being honored by the gang at McKinley High, he has no plans to appear on the show a la Britney Spears, whose music catalog is also getting the "Glee" treatment.

"I'm just not a big TV actor type of guy," Joel, 61, explained. "I'm a piano player."

Heidi Montag: I feel trapped in my own body

Heidi Montag has something she wants to get off her chest: Yes, she feels like a boob for getting those super-sized breast implants.

In the new issue of Life & Style, "The Hills" star - whose plastic surgeon, Dr. Frank Ryan, died in a car accident last week - reveals that she regrets boosting her bust to a size G and plans to take them down a notch.

"I'm desperate to go back to normal," she told the magazine. "I'm downgrading and going a little smaller, to a D or a double D."

Lily Allen has better things to do than 'X-Factor'

If you think Simon Cowell is harsh, wait until you hear what Lily Allen had to say about the former "American Idol" judge and his U.K. show, "The X-Factor."

The 25-year-old singer dissed Cowell's Brit talent competition - which he'll adapt for the U.S. in the fall - during a Twitter tirade on Saturday.

"Too set up/scripted in my humble opinion," she tweeted. "It's everything that I detest about modern western culture. Cowell is the only one who really benefits."

Britney Spears: I'm a big fan of Lady Gaga

Britney Spears: I'm a big fan of Lady Gaga

Britney Spears is not one to hold a grudge.

Lady Gaga may have dethroned her as the Queen of Twitter, but the pop princess doesn't seem to be bothered by it. In fact, she says she'd happily work with Gaga in the future.

"I'm a big fan of hers," Spears, 28, tells the new issue of the U.K.'s Pop magazine, which features a Japanese anime-inspired photo shoot of the "Womanizer" singer. The former Mouseketeer adds that she wouldn't rule out teaming up with Gaga, 24, for a track or two. "Anything's possible!"

The collaboration could happen soon. Spears is currently working on a new album, and Gaga - who, like Spears, served as the subject of an entire "Glee" episode - would likely be game: She already worked with another pop diva, Beyonce, on the single "Telephone" earlier this year.
