Study finds life better for a well dressed man – even on TV

Don Draper is definitely on to something - it turns out girls might really be crazy about a sharp dressed man after all.

A recent study conducted by Men's Wearhouse found that clothes really do make the man, even on television where a not-so-nice guy might still get the girl when he's nattily attired.

Characters like Draper on "Mad Men", "How I Met Your Mother"s Barney Stinson (well know for his "suit up" advice) and Mr. Big on "Sex and the City" display that there is a lot to be said for setting a fashion standard.

Franco bringing two lit classics to big screen

James Franco is one busy guy. As Marquee previously reported, the "127 Hours" actor is set to host the February 27 Oscars and is preparing to write and direct a film based on the life of slain "Rebel Without a Cause" star Sal Mineo.

Now, "Palo Alto" author Franco is planning to bring two literary classics to the big screen, reports Showbiz411.com. The first is William Faulkner's "As I Lay Dying," which Franco plans to direct based on a screenplay that he wrote. Franco told Showbiz411's Roger Friedman he hopes to begin the project next spring.

Meanwhile, Franco also hopes to take on Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian" in 2012 and is currently in the process of making a deal to write the script and direct the project.

Those hoping to get a glimpse of 32-year-old Franco's talents as a filmmaker will get the chance at this month's Sundance Film Festival, where he'll show off his art project film based on the hit '80s sitcom “Three’s Company."

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock as a couple?

I have to say there were a lot of surprising Hollywood hookups over the holidays, but the one that is most surprising to me is Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock.

They got together with some friends to celebrate the New Year. Ryan and Sandra have denied any romantic connection, but seeing those two together got me thinking: maybe these two should get together!

Let’s look at the facts: They had great chemistry in their hit movie “The Proposal,” they’re both newly single, he was named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” and she was named People’s “Woman of the Year”! Seems like the stars are aligning in more ways than one!

Howard Stern to appear on 'Piers Morgan Tonight'

Howard Stern announced on his Sirius/XM radio show today that he would be among the first guests on "Piers Morgan Tonight," which is set to debut in CNN's 9 p.m. time slot on January 17.

Piers Morgan is remaining tight-lipped about the alleged booking - no official word yet on Howard Stern or any other guest. But Stern provided grist to the rumor mill when he said that he probably should not have mentioned it at all.

TVNewser posted a recap of the segment, which originally appeared on the Stern fan site MarksFriggin.com: FULL POST

Kellie Pickler is married!

Country songs may be a bit more uplifting in 2011 now that all of the industry’s female stars are walking down the aisle. Kellie Pickler just joined friend Carrie Underwood and fellow singer Shania Twain in happily-married-land (and Miranda Lambert’s up next!)

"Yes, it's true," Pickler tweeted at 3 p.m. Tuesday. "@kylecjacobs and I said 'I Do!' Thank you Jesus!"

The former "American Idol" contestant wed songwriter Kyle Jacobs in a secret ceremony on January 1 on a private island in the Caribbean. The couple got engaged in June 2010 on a Florida beach after 2 ½ years of dating.

No other details were made public, but Pickler shared some of her wedding plans with PEOPLE in August.
