Eminem and 'Random Acts of Violence'

Eminem is getting ready to make a comeback on the big screen. The rapper is set to star in the upcoming crime thriller "Random Acts of Violence."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the project, which has been in development for four years, centers on a just-out-of-prison ex-con who struggles to stay on the right side of the law while being pressured by the shady people from his past. Meanwhile, the FBI is attempting to recruit him to help bring down the bad guys.

Update 1/7, 6:35 p.m. : A rep for the rapper tells CNN that "Eminem's producing team, including his manager Paul Rosenberg, have been developing this project for some time.  Everyone involved hopes that it comes to fruition and the film goes into production, but as of right now nothing is set in stone and there is no firm start date.”

Thursday morning he was chatting with Meredith Vieira and Matt Lauer on “Today,” and followed it up by swinging by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” where he recounted his incredible story.

Carrie Underwood loves being a 'hockey wife'

Married life certainly suits Carrie Underwood. Since exchanging vows with Ottawa Senators hockey player Mike Fisher last July, the country queen has transformed into quite the happy homemaker.

"It is nice being a hockey wife," 27-year-old Underwood said yesterday in an interview with Minneapolis radio station K102. "Of course now, I'm, like, cleaning the house, buying the groceries... I can spend hours in a grocery store, and I'm the happiest person in the universe."

Though their careers keep them busy – and often in different countries – Underwood says that she and 30-year-old Fisher, who have homes in Nashville and Canada, make an effort to spend as little time apart as possible.

"We're together a lot more than people think we are," says the "American Idol" champ. "Even if it's just for a day, we get to pop in. We'll make sure we put the extra time and effort to do that."

Aretha Franklin: Health problem 'resolved'

It looks like the source of Aretha Franklin’s recent health issues is staying between the Queen of Soul and her doctors – Franklin said in an interview with Jet magazine that she’s keeping quiet.

“I am not one to do a lot of talking about my personal health or business,” the 68-year-old singer said. “There are a lot of people who will talk about anything, as long as there is somebody listening. But I am not one of those people.”

Indeed, as word spread that Franklin was having surgery for an unknown trouble in early December - a month after announcing that her concerts were canceled until May because of doctor’s orders - reports suggested that she had cancer, with the National Enquirer saying that Franklin had been diagnosed with inoperable and incurable pancreatic cancer over the summer.

Piers Morgan: I seduced Gayle to get Oprah

If you want to get to Oprah Winfrey, you've got to go through her BFF first.

That's the lesson Piers Morgan learned before nabbing the talk-show titan as his debut guest on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

"I had to seduce Gayle King by e-mail, which I did very successfully for a sustained period of time," Morgan, 45, tells CNN. "A great sort of digital courtship. And if you get to Gayle you get to Oprah!"
