Brad Pitt wants to make the Chilean miners movie

Much like the rest of the world, Brad Pitt was touched by the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for more than two months before being rescued. Now, the 46-year-old actor is in talks to tell their tale on the big screen.

People.com reports that Pitt's production company Plan B – which he founded with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston – "has expressed potential interest in the story," according to company rep Jon Liebman, CEO of Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

"Like so many people worldwide, Plan B has been incredibly moved by the story of the Chilean miners and their families."

Would you watch 3 hours of comedy on NBC?

Some big changes were made at NBC on Monday, including television chairman Jeff Gaspin (who also had a hand in managing the various changes on the network's late night programming) announcing he will leave the company, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Along with that, the network announced some changes in the midseason schedule, foremost among them a risky expansion of their Thursday night comedy block into a third hour, following disappointing ratings for the relaunched non-celebrity "Apprentice." (The last network to try that was ABC in 1991, according to The L.A. Times.)

This includes a move of the just-renewed "30 Rock" to 10 p.m. ET, the return of critical darling "Parks and Recreation" in the post-"Office" slot, and a new series, "Perfect Couples," co-starring "The Daily Show's" Olivia Munn.

Jane Lynch: 'Glee' wedding dress to be a track suit

Don't expect "Glee's" Coach Sue Sylvester to switch up her style when she becomes a bride this season. Actress Jane Lynch reveals that instead of some froufrou gown, she'll be sporting one of Sue's signature track suits.

"The [wedding] dress is so awesome," Lynch tells Us magazine, adding that the ensemble is being crafted by Ali Rahimi, who is responsible for her Emmy and Golden Globes gowns. "He made a Sue Sylvester designer tracksuit wedding dress!"

As for additional details about Coach Sue's "I dos," Lynch – who wed psychiatrist Dr. Lara Embry in an intimate Massachusetts ceremony in June – is keeping mum.

"I'm not going to say who or what, or even what sex," says the 50-year-old star, who describes the upcoming TV nuptials as "unconventional." "But it is just so freakin weird - you're going to love it."

'Terriers': The best new show you're not watching

I started off this TV season with high hopes for a bunch of new shows. Two months later, I’m down to just one: "Terriers." It’s the best new show of the fall… but I might be the only one watching it.

Here’s the two-sentence lowdown: Hank is an ex-cop and recovering alcoholic. He and his partner Britt are low-rent private investigators who often find themselves in just a little over their heads.

There are just two episodes left in the show’s first season, and it may not be back for a second. So why should you be watching "Terriers"? Glad you asked, because I've got five reasons:
