Christopher Nolan on board for another 'Batman'

It’s a move that even Christopher Nolan admits everyone was assuming would come to pass eventually. The filmmaker, who had everyone’s heads spinning this summer with “Inception,” will take the reigns of the next “Batman” movie as well.

"It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way," Nolan said in an interview with Empire. "I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it."

Nolan, who helmed both “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight,” has already started working on the script with Jonathan Nolan (who also wrote the screenplay for 2008's "Dark Knight"). The movie is tentatively slated for a July, 2012 release.

Anderson Cooper to host daytime show

Yes, everyone, it looks like the rumors are true: Anderson Cooper is indeed moving to daytime.

The CNN host has signed a deal for an hour-long daily daytime show that is set for national syndication in Fall 2011, according to a statement. The aim of the show is to cover the stories everyone’s talking about around the “water cooler,” and will focus on everything from social issues to pop culture, human interest pieces to trends and events.

On top of hosting this new daytime show, Cooper will still man the desk on CNN's “AC:360” weeknights at 10 p.m.

PDA problems on 'Modern Family'

PDA problems on 'Modern Family'

A group of Facebook users clamored for it, and so it finally happened on Wednesday night's episode of "Modern Family:" Cameron and Mitchell kissed. But if you turned your head or even blinked, you might have missed it.

It took place in the background very quickly, a very understated handling of it in the tradition of this show, which always tries - for the most part - to ground itself in reality.

Why hadn't we seen them kiss before? Well, it turns out that Mitchell is not a big fan of public displays of affection, while Cameron loves them ("Gays don't high-five!"). Among several places where Mitchell thinks people shouldn't kiss is a bowling alley. "I almost got a turkey!" Cameron complained. Mitchell also isn't a fan of Cameron's game, "kiss-buggy" (kissing whenever one sees a VW bug).

MC Hammer has fighting words for Jay-Z

MC Hammer has some fighting words for Jay-Z.

Last week, Kanye West released the track, “So Appalled,” as part of his now-canceled G.O.O.D. Music Fridays. Aside from Jay-Z, the song features the likes of RZA, Swizz Beatz, Pusha T and CyHi Da Prince, but it’s Hova's verse that's at the heart of Hammer’s anger.

“And Hammer went broke so you know I’m more focused/I lost 30 mil so I spent another 30/cause unlike Hammer, 30 million can’t hurt me," the industry mogul rapped.
