Wonder Woman heading to NBC

Call her invincible! After a long battle, Wonder Woman will finally be making her way to TV screens: Deadline.com reports that NBC has picked up David E. Kelley's pilot about the Amazing amazon.

As Marquee previously reported, the project had been turned down by several networks earlier in the month, but Kelley remained optimistic.

Goldie Hawn 'excited' about Kate Hudson's baby news

Goldie Hawn could barely contain her joy for daughter Kate Hudson as she attended the British 2011 Comedy Awards in London this weekend.

Hudson, 31, was said to be expecting earlier this month, and Hawn spilled to Us Weekly, “I’m excited! It’s exciting."

According to Us, Hudson has been dating daddy-to-be Matthew Bellamy for nine months, and while the pregnancy wasn't planned the couple is embracing the news, a source told the weekly magazine.

The “Raising Helen” actress has been busy raising one thus far – her 7-year-old-son Ryder, whom she had with ex Chris Robinson. According to an Us Weekly source, Hudson is “happy for Ryder to finally have a brother or sister.”

And it looks like Hawn's ready for another grandchild. "You know, we're just all very happy...happy for them both," the 65-year-old actress said. "What's more to say?"

Kim Kardashian wants to have a mini Kris Humphries

Things seem to be getting serious between Kim Kardashian and her latest beau, Kris Humphries: The 30-year-old "Kourtney & Kim Take New York" star has been dating the New Jersey Nets player since December but is already fantasizing about having his baby.

"I want my son to look like this!" Kardashian tweeted on Sunday, including a childhood photo of 25-year-old Humphries.

Despite wanting to make babies with the basketball star, Kardashian isn't rushing into motherhood any time soon.

In a radio interview last year, the reality TV star said she's perfectly content just playing auntie to big sis Kourtney's 13-month-old son Mason.

"Let's just say Mason is the best birth control ever!" said Kardashian, who recently lashed out at MTV's "Teen Mom" for the increase in high-school pregnancies. "I'm definitely happy to wait awhile."

Carey Mulligan wants to appear on 'To Catch a Predator'

She earned an Oscar nomination for "An Education," appeared opposite Michael Douglas in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" and is set to co-star with Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Great Gatsby," but there's one dream role Carey Mulligan has yet to land: a stint on "To Catch a Predator."

In a recent interview with the U.K.'s The Guardian, the 25-year-old Brit It girl gushes about her favorite show, telling her interviewer, "Oh, you have to watch it! It's on in America, it's a reality show… They go online and pretend to be little boys and girls, and they get these pedophiles to come to this fake suburban house. And then this guy walks in called Chris Hansen and collars them. And then, when they try to walk out, these police officers jump on them!"

Mulligan continues, "They've got this guy who's dressed in army camouflage, with leaves on his outfit, who hides in the bushes, leaps out and throws them to the ground. The Leaf Man! Oh, it's so good."

In fact, Mulligan hopes to nab a part on the show one day. "That's what I want to do," she says. "I want to play the fake child on 'To Catch a Predator.' No, wait! I want to play the Leaf Man!"

Bill Clinton not doing a cameo in 'The Hangover 2'

Forget those rumors that former president Bill Clinton will be appearing in "The Hangover 2." According to star Ed Helms, Clinton's only role was behind-the-scenes.

"He came and visited us," Helms told MTV of  why Clinton turned up on the Thailand set of the upcoming comedy. "I'd be surprised if there's a scene in the movie."

While Clinton may not be on camera, expect to see another familiar face making a cameo: Mike Tyson. The heavyweight champion figured hilariously into the first film's story line and Helms confirms that he'll be back for a second round.
