Olivia goes home on a spine-tingling 'Fringe'

We've seen some pretty amazing episodes of "Fringe" - usually involving a twist ending of some kind. But Thursday night's episode stood head and shoulders above them all.

Picking up where we left of last week, Peter got a mysterious message on his phone from the real Olivia while he was in bed with "Bolivia" from the other world. After failing to recall  a phrase Olivia said to Peter last season, "Bolivia" pulled a gun on him: "I failed the test, didn't I?"

We've been witnessing the evolution of Peter's character, and this week, we heard vengeful Peter tell "Bolivia," "I'm going to get answers. And if I find out you did anything to Olivia, then I'm going to kill you."

Johnny Depp doesn't need 'that piece of paper'

Despite their 12 years and two children together, Johnny Depp says he has no intentions of marrying his French girlfriend Vanessa Paradis.

"I never found myself needing that piece of paper," 47-year-old Depp told TV's "Extra" of why he hasn't wed the mother of his kids, Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, 8. "Marriage is really from soul to soul, heart to heart. You don't need somebody to say, 'OK, you're married.'"

That said, "The Tourist" star, who was wed to makeup artist Lori Anne Allison from 1983 to 1986, and was reportedly previously engaged to actresses Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder, as well as model Kate Moss, says he would walk down the aisle with Paradis, 37, if she asked him to put a ring on it.

"If Vanessa wanted to get hitched, why not," he says. "But the thing is, I'd be so scared of ruining her last name. She's got such a good last name."

Justin Long co-hosts with Kathie Lee

We're not at all sure of the “how” or “why” this happened, but we're glad it did.

Actor Justin Long subbed in for Hota Kotb in the final hour of the “Today” show on Thursday ... and it was pretty entertaining. Long and the show’s co-host Kathie Lee Gifford covered such ground as Kotb’s thong (who according to Gifford had accompanied Kotb on a tropical vacation to celebrate a friend’s birthday), Long’s “junk” and some of his less than astute choices of movie roles.

Long even did a little impersonation of “Saturday Night Live” cast member Kristin Wiig impersonating Gifford. Words can't even express Long and Gifford's chemistry. Check it out here.

Ryan Gosling: 'fat and unemployed'

Apparently grieving fathers don't gain weight - actor Ryan Gosling says he was fired from the 2009 movie "The Lovely Bones" for getting too fat.

In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the 30-year-old star reveals that he prepped to play the role of Jack Salmon – whose teenage daughter Susie is brutally murdered – by packing on 60 pounds.

"I was melting Haagen Dazs and drinking it when I was thirsty," he says. The problem was, Gosling never told film director Peter Jackson of his plan.

'Black Swan' flutters into theaters Friday

Darren Aronofsky’s new psychological thriller, in theaters Friday, has generated a good amount of water cooler chitchat and Oscar buzz – especially considering the film is only opening in limited release.

CNN's Tom Charity described the flick - which stars Natalie Portman as dedicated dancer Nina, and Mila Kunis as rival ballerina Lilly - as “a dementedly lurid psychological horror movie in white tutus and leg warmers.”

He adds: “It's the kind of chick flick guys are going to love (yes, there's even a little girl-on-girl action). Never mind the quality, feel the heat.”

Audience gets a refund after Steve Martin disappoints

That recent speech that funnyman Steve Martin gave at the 92nd Street Y was no laughing matter – and that's exactly why the audience is getting their money back.

Guests who attended the November 29 event had expected to hear the comedy legend talk about his career, but they became irritated when the one-hour interview session - conducted by Martin's friend, New York Times Magazine columnist Deborah Solomon - remained focused on the art world, the subject of his new book, "An Object of Beauty."

Martin tells the New York Times that viewers who tuned in to the interview via closed-circuit TV began sending e-mails to the Y complaining “that the evening was not going the way they wished, meaning we were discussing art.” In fact, those in the venue reportedly cheered when Solomon was handed a note asking her to talk more about Martin's career.
