Guess who’s coming to dinner, ‘Chuck’

Last night’s episode might have been titled “Chuck vs. the Leftovers,” but the show served up a main course.

This season’s main bad guy, Volkoff (former 007 Timothy Dalton) knows that Chuck is still alive. What he DOESN’T know is that Chuck is the son of his object of affection. When he finds out, and discovers that she has a daughter too, he wants to… impress them at a family dinner?

As long as it ends up with Dalton playing charades, I’m willing to go along with it.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Do you get the Kardashians' popularity?

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Do you get the Kardashians' popularity?

There’s brand new reaction today to Kim, Khloe and Kourtney’s shocking decision to drop their controversial debit card (which had their pictures on it) with outrageous fees! I think they were wise to cut ties with the card; maybe they got some bad advice to sign on in the first place. Hopefully they will look at the fine print more closely going forward. Their image and livelihood depend on it.

But the Kardashian sisters are still more popular than ever – even with this mess. Do you get the Kardashian sisters’ popularity? I mean, Kim Kardashian is even the most searched name on Bing.

It’s baffling, and yet understandable - I think their millions of fans love their style, their drama and their glamorous lifestyle. They epitomize how the jet-setting rich and famous live, and people love getting a glimpse of that. Also, they seem like sweet girls who are just working hard to capitalize on their popularity, which I think a lot of people can appreciate.

Rihanna: I'll stop talking about C. Brown if you will

It's been almost two years since her pre-Grammys assault by Chris Brown, and Rihanna is tired of talking about it. In fact, the singer says she just wants to move on from the life-altering incident and is hoping that everyone else will do the same.

The 22-year-old Barbados native made her revelation after one of her Twitter followers, greenangeleyez1, sent her the following message on November 28: "I luv u bt it's time u stopped talking about the situation with chris in interviews. How r people gonna move on?"

"AGREED!" replied Rihanna. "People won't stop askin abt it! Its f-in annoying! Nobody wants to relive that, but some ppl can't respect that!"

'Winter's Bone' up for seven Spirit Awards

The nominations for the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards have been announced, and while the competition is stiff, Gotham Independent Film Awards best feature winner "Winter's Bone" is up for more than a handful.

The film, about a young woman's search through dangerous territory for her drug-pushing dad, is up for seven nods including best feature, which is stockpiled with some of the most talked about films this year: "The Kids Are All Right,” “Black Swan,” “127 Hours” and "Greenberg” are “Winter’s Bone's" competition.

Newly-minted Oscar host James Franco still has to wait and see if he'll be up for an Oscar, but he is up for a Spirit Award in the best male lead category for his role in "127 Hours." He faces competition from Ben Stiller for "Greenberg" and Aaron Eckhart for "Rabbit Hole," among others.

Meanwhile, Natalie Portman's turn in "Black Swan" earned her a best female lead nomination, and she'll be facing off against actresses like Annette Bening (“The Kids Are All Right”), Nicole Kidman ("Rabbit Hole") and Michelle Williams ("Blue Valentine").

The Spirit Awards, which honors the best in independent film, will be held on Saturday, February 26. Check out a list of nominees after the jump. Who are you pulling for?

'Jersey Shore' among Barbara Walters' 'Most Fascinating'

If you’ve been fascinated by the “Jersey Shore” cast’s ability to lay around in bed for hours at a time, throw around the word "done" without actually meaning it and somehow still find time for regular GTL sessions, you’re not the only one. Barbara Walters is pretty fascinated with the reality TV stars as well, and has included the cast among her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2010" special.

Walters will also sit down with teen pop idol Justin Bieber; former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin; Sandra Bullock; LeBron James; new “Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez; and the recently engaged Kate Middleton.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a 2010 list if it didn’t include 88-year-old Betty White, whose star has arguably shone the brightest this year. But Walters won’t focus on just White’s success – she’ll also delve into her sex life. When Walters inquires if one still has sex at White’s age, the comedienne responds, “If one gets lucky!”

Casting agent dismissed from Peter Jackson's 'Hobbit'

Apparently discrimination exists even in the world of men with furry feet.

A casting agent for the upcoming film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" was dismissed on Monday after placing advertisements calling for extras with "light skin tones," reports the New York Times.

According to the newspaper, one actress was turned away after being told she was too dark to appear in the film. “The casting manager basically said they weren’t having anybody who wasn’t pale-skinned,” she says.
