Will Forte leaves 'Saturday Night Live'

The time has come to say farewell to Will Forte, “Saturday Night Live” fans – the actor has announced that he won't be returning to NBC’s late-night sketch comedy show as it enters its 36th season this fall.

“After eight great seasons, Will has made the decision to move on from SNL to pursue new opportunities,” Forte’s rep said. “He is eternally grateful to Lorne and all of the incredible people he worked with over the years.”

Forte came into the "SNL" fold in 2002, creating a variety of memorable characters, not in the least MacGruber, whose story was turned into a feature film and released in May.

NBC hasn’t issued an official statement, and the NYTimes reports that the network has declined to comment on any potential newbies coming on, as deals are expected to close after Labor Day. "SNL's" new season kicks off September 25 at 11:30 p.m.

Behind the Scenes on 'Showbiz Tonight': The wronged wives club

What a difference a few months make for Sandra Bullock and Elin Nordegren.

When the new year arrived, both women were in the depths of despair, with crumbling marriages and their husbands’ cheating scandals splashed across the tabloids. But since then, in two dramatic tell-all interviews, these remarkable women have created a new club "Showbiz Tonight" is calling, “The Wronged Wives Club.”

Elin Nordegren stunned the world by opening up exclusively to People magazine this week about her painful split from Tiger Woods. She talked about being blind-sided by his multiple affairs, her severe emotional distress and going through “hell.”

Oprah Winfrey: This show has been my life

Considering how often many of us have to reach for tissue while watching “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” the host is actually hoping to remain relatively dry-eyed during her last season.

“I don’t intend to be crying the whole season,” Winfrey told TV Guide. “The only time I get really emotional and nostalgic about the show is when I think about the viewers. Hopefully some of them will follow me to OWN, but I know not everybody will.”

Winfrey added that “the show hasn't been a big part of my life. It's been my life. I didn't have children. I had the show."

Mark Salling: I don't even drive a Lexus

In a rumored turn of events that could easily fit into an episode of “Glee,” a report claims that Naya Rivera, who plays Santana Lopez on the Fox hit show, has done serious damage to co-star Mark Salling’s car.

Reports have linked Salling, 28, with Rivera, but he's also been seen with SC Johnson heiress Samantha Marq, and was momentarily thought to be hanging with Vienna Girardi as well before Salling shot that rumor down.

Rivera, 23, supposedly wasn't pleased with Salling's single man status and unleashed her fury by egging and keying his car. A source claims, "When Naya found out, she and some pals trashed his Lexus.” Rivera’s rep didn’t return a request for comment on that report, but Salling himself begs to differ.

‘Iron Fist’ next Marvel movie?

Along with a number of other Marvel comics currently getting the Hollywood treatment – including “Thor,” “The First Avenger: Captain America” and “Iron Man 3” – the studio seems to be digging in the comic crates once again, this time for a hero with a bit of a lower profile.

According to Deadline.com, the "Iron Fist" is the next super in line to get his own movie. The story of Danny Rand, a martial arts expert who develops a pair of indestructible fists after winning a battle with a dragon, first emerged in the '70s, and it's believed that Marvel has tapped Rich Wilkes, the man who penned “xXx," the movie that began a franchise of films with Vin Diesel.

EW thinks it’s kind of odd to give the greenlight to a martial arts movie since interest from American moviegoers in the genre seems to have flagged, they are giving “Spider-Man” something of a reinvention, so why not try to pay homage to the lesser-known Marvel icons?

Another Marvel comic that's reported to fly under the Disney banner, as "Iron Fist" would, is Dr. Strange, the New York surgeon who loses his sense of touch and has to learn to use his mind to combat evil instead of physical force. Aside from these two, are there any other lesser-known heroes that you think Marvel should turn to next?
