It's dance-off time on 'Live to Dance'

I was overjoyed to see that all of my favorites from the premiere of "Live to Dance" made it through to the semi-finals on Wednesday night's episode.

The only thing left to do was to give the judges (and yes, you, America) the opportunity to award the last two slots via a (entirely necessary, I'm sure) dance-off.

I don't know why Kendall Glover wasn't sent straight through, but Paula Abdul interrupting her school's assembly to let her know that she had to do a call-back - without actually telling her it meant that she hadn't quite made it to the next level - was a moment worth watching.

Pressly has since been released after posting a $15,000 bail and has a court date set to occur within the next 30 days.

Clooney, Ouija board movies in works

Angelina Jolie's "Cleopatra" is one step closer to getting made, George Clooney is starring in an Italian movie, and the Ouija board will soon be scaring up some fun on the big screen.

Producer Scott Rudin tells Deadline.com that he is close to hiring a director for Jolie's "Cleopatra" 3-D spectacular. Though Rudin won't name names, it's rumored that Paul Greengrass, who helmed the "Bourne Identity" franchise, will direct the Queen of the Nile biopic.

The film, based on author Stacy Schiff's "Cleopatra: A Life," will be much different from the 1963 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor, promises Rudin. "It is a completely revisionist Cleopatra, a much more grown-up sophisticated version," he has said. "She’s not a sex kitten, she’s a politician, strategist, warrior."
