New 'Spider-Man' doesn't want to be famous

He made a name for himself in the critically acclaimed "The Social Network," but Andrew Garfield will literally soar to new heights as the lead in the upcoming "Spider-Man" reboot. And that has the humble British actor worried.

Rep: Charlie Sheen has been showing up to work

In the aftermath of Charlie Sheen’s visit to New York last fall – which resulted in false allegations involving drug use, a trashed hotel room and a porn star – rumors are now swirling that Sheen blew off work following a Las Vegas-based bender.

TMZ reported that Sheen was still in Vegas after a weekend spent with three porn stars two hours before he was supposed to appear on the set of “Two and a Half Men” Tuesday morning.

But, according to a rep for the star, there’s no truth to it.

“I keep reading that Charlie Sheen did not show up for work today. I read those remarks two hours before his scheduled time of arrival,” the rep said in a statement to CNN. “Charlie Sheen arrived at work today and is there as I send this. Memo to Chicken Little: The sky remains in place.”

The judge she replaced last season, Mary Murphy - of "hot tamale train" fame - is coming back for the new season, news that's sure to get a very split reaction among fans of the show.

Murphy said in a press release, "I am thrilled and already dancing in my seat to be back as a permanent judge this season, which I'm sure will be the best ever."

His latest movie may be called "No Strings Attached," but it seems there are quite a few hitches involved in getting director Ivan Reitman's planned "Ghostbusters" sequel off the ground.

"All of the actors but one have read [the script] and loved it," Reitman tells CNN of "Ghostbusters III." "We're waiting for one of them to read it and see where we are.”

The holdout?
