Channing Tatum taking the lead in '21 Jump Street'?

Hollywood may have finally found the one man who can fill Johnny Depp's shoes – at least as far as "21 Jump Street" is concerned. Actor Channing Tatum is reportedly ready to take the lead in the big-screen adaptation of Depp's popular '80s cop show.

According to Deadline.com, the producers of the "21 Jump Street" movie say that 30-year-old Tatum, who co-starred with Depp in 2009's "Public Enemies," possesses exactly the right youthful good looks to make him believable as a cop who goes undercover as a high school student.

Sony Pictures, which is behind the "21 Jump Street" reboot, also believes that Tatum plays well opposite comic actor Jonah Hill, who is both writing and starring in the film.

Janet Jackson: I got colonics at age 11

Being a child star wasn't necessarily "Good Times" for Janet Jackson. The actress/singer tells the December issue of Health that she blames being a young performer for many of the body image issues she would struggle with later in life.

“When I did 'Good Times,' they used to bind my chest because I was developing breasts at a young age," says 44-year-old Jackson, who played Penny Woods on the hit TV comedy from 1977-79. "It immediately makes you think, ‘The way I am isn’t good enough.’ They thought I was too heavy and that I needed to lose weight. When I look back at the show, I was your average-size kid.”

Still, it was around that same time that her mother, Katherine Jackson, took the 11-year-old for regular colonic treatments to help keep her trim.

Growing up (or not) on 'Parenthood'

Growing up (or not) on 'Parenthood'

On last night’s episode of “Parenthood,” Sarah, Adam and Gordon hear the demo test results on her shoe-clicker idea – and it's a bomb. (There are mornings when I'd love to have something like that to help my kids find their shoes, but I guess the focus group couldn't appreciate it.)

Afterward, Zeek and Adam are in the grocery store talking about it while trying to wrangle Max and his chips. At the 10 items only check-out line, some twit ahead of them has 17 items, which Max notices. He proceeds to remove the twit's items himself and heads for a meltdown. Because said shopper is a twit, he can't just shut up and move along. He says Adam should "train" Max better, then calls Max the r-word.

Adam knocks him to the ground. And who can blame him? When they get home, no one wants to tell Kristina what happened.

Dakota Fanning's twice the homecoming queen

As if being one of Hollywood's most popular young actresses wasn't enough, Dakota Fanning has also been crowned her high school's homecoming queen – two years in a row!

The 16-year-old "Twilight: Breaking Dawn" star received her latest accolade on November 8, when she was honored before her fellow students at North Hollywood's Campbell Hall Episcopal High School. Accompanied by homecoming king Henry Aleck, Fanning beamed while wearing her regal tiara and sash and carrying a bouquet of roses.

Currently in her senior year, Fanning is grateful to have attended an actual high school rather than being schooled on set, and says she plans to continue her education after graduation.

'Veronica Mars' movie: Closer to reality?

Not long after teen mystery series "Veronica Mars" was canceled by the CW back in 2007, the talk of a possible movie version began (especially since the last episode didn't resolve much of anything).

The show's star, Kristen Bell, has kept busy on the big and small screen, but she (and creator Rob Thomas) has made no secret of the fact that she would love to do a movie, tweeting her followers to bombard Warner Bros. Pictures with messages to give it the green light.

This has not gone unnoticed by the studio (which is owned by Time Warner, the owner of CNN), and last Friday they tweeted their followers to "send your film requests and petitions to VeronicaMarsMovie@warnerbros.com."
