Will Arnett: I'm just trying to make people laugh

After three seasons of “Arrested Development,” a slew of big-screen comedies and hilarious guest spots on shows like “30 Rock” and “Parks and Recreation,” funnyman Will Arnett brings us “Running Wilde,” in which he plays an “insane billionaire.”

His character Steve Wilde is rich and self-absorbed, but when he’s reunited with Emmy (Keri Russell), he vows to change so that he might win back her heart.

“This is something that’s kind of new for us,” Arnett said during a conference call. “We’re telling a romantic story within a comedy. Every week we get better and better at telling the story of these two people.”

Taylor Swift's pen only targets some

Taylor Swift's exes must be shaking in their boots about whether they'll get ripped to shreds on her upcoming album "Speak Now," but former beau Taylor Lautner, for one, can sleep easy. The singer says in the November issue of Glamour magazine that she's still on good terms with the "Twilight" star.

"He’s one of my best friends," Swift, 20, says of "Valentine's Day" co-star Lautner, 18, from whom she split last December after three months of dating. "He’s wonderful, and we’ll always be close. I’m so thankful for that."

John Mayer left Twitter for the sake of his art

The Twitter community may be mourning the loss of John Mayer but the singer says he left the social networking site for the sake of his art.

MTV reports that the former king of oversharing, who quit Twitter in September, explained it all in a blog post that appears to have been removed. "It occurred to me that since the invocation of Twitter, nobody who has participated in it has created any lasting art," he wrote. "And yes! Yours truly is included in that roundup as well."

In fact, Mayer, 32, claims that most people's tweets are "disposable," and goes on to question, "Has any artist, since they've begun to give you daily insights into their life, created their best work yet? Are the best writers of our time on Twitter?"

Emma Stone cast as Gwen Stacy in 'Spider-Man'

Hollywood "It" girl Emma Stone has been captured by America's favorite web-slinging hero! The actress has officially been cast in the new "Spider-Man" reboot.

After weeks of rumors that 21-year-old Stone - who currently stars in the hit teen comedy "Easy A" - would play Spidey's red-headed love interest Mary Jane, the Hollywood Reporter now confirms that she'll play blonde love interest Gwen Stacy instead.

According to director Marc Webb, hiring Stone to star opposite leading man Andrew Garfield, 27, was a no-brainer – Webb's Spidey senses went off when the two auditioned together.
