Sarah Palin on HBO's 'Game Change': I'll just grit my teeth

Sarah Palin wasn't thrilled to find out that Kathy Griffin will play a "Sarah Palin-type" character on "Glee," and now she's bracing herself for Julianne Moore portraying her in the upcoming HBO film "Game Change."

“I think I'll just grit my teeth and bear whatever comes...with that movie,” the former governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Thursday. Palin joked that she's happy to provide so many actresses with work but wishes they would share their good fortune.

"I'm all about job creation. And I guess I could provide some of these gals who pretend like they are me some job security," she said. "I would ask, though, if they're of the mind of spreading the wealth around, that perhaps they want to spring for one of my kids' sets of braces or something as they capitalize on pretending to be me."

Jake Gyllenhaal: No photos in the restroom, please

Take note Jake Gyllenhaal fans: This actor isn't cool with powder room photography.

The story coming out of SXSW is that there was a “heated scuffle in the theater bathroom” when a fan tried to snap Gyllenhaal’s photo at an “inelegant time,” Entertainment Weekly reports.

EW asked the actor, whose film “Source Code” premiered at SXSW and opens on April 1, and he laughed and confirmed that it was true.

Bradley Cooper wants Tom Buchanan role in 'Gatsby'

Bradley Cooper wants Tom Buchanan role in 'Gatsby'

Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan are already locked in for "The Great Gatsby," but there's one more actor dying to be a part of director Baz Luhrmann's upcoming 3-D spectacle: Bradley Cooper.

In a new interview with the New York Times, Cooper lobbies for the role of Tom Buchanan, the cocky blueblood husband of Gatsby's (DiCaprio) love interest, Daisy (Mulligan).

"To me, he's the best character in the book. He's so complicated," says the star of "The Hangover – Part II." "He's xenophobic, he's an alcoholic, but he also understands some profound stuff about class. Whoever plays it has to take a gentle hand, because it could so easily be stock, where he’s a rich jerk you don't identify with at all."

Will Jennifer Lawrence snag 'Hunger Games' lead?

The hunt for a leading lady to star in "The Hunger Games" may soon be over: According to Deadline, "Winter's Bone" star Jennifer Lawrence is the favorite for the big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' teen-fiction trilogy.

As fans of the best-selling novels know, the gory "Hunger Games" books center on Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old girl who lives in a post-apocalyptic world in which she is chosen to compete in a government-sponsored reality show that requires her to kill her peers.

Much like "Twilight's" Bella Swan, Katniss also finds herself in a love triangle and is torn between nice-guy fellow contestant Peeta and heartthrob hunter Gale.

Kathy Griffin responds to Sarah Palin calling her a bully

The back-and-forth between Sarah Palin and Kathy Griffin isn't over yet. The comedian has fired back in response to Palin calling her an "adult bully."

Griffin, who hasn't been shy about lobbing jokes at the Palin clan and will play a Palin-esque character in an upcoming episode of "Glee," "can do anything to me or say anything about me, because you know, she's kind of this — she's a 50-year-old adult bully, really, is what she is," Palin told Fox News earlier this month. "Kind of a has-been comedian, and she can do those things to me."

But Griffin, who's invited Palin to her Broadway show currently playing at the Belasco theater, told ABC News that she doesn't think Palin really knows what bullying means.

Alec Baldwin to Charlie Sheen: You can't win

Alec Baldwin is offering troubled former "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen some tough love and telling the fired actor—who is suing Warner Bros. Television for $100 million—to sober up and beg for his job back.

"You can't win. Really. You can't," Baldwin says in a new Huffington Post editorial, warning Sheen that network studio execs believe "no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit. And, in that regard, they are often right. Add to that the fact that the actor who is torturing their diseased egos is a drug-addled, porn star-squiring, near-Joycean Internet ranter, and they really want you to go."

Baldwin advises Sheen to take a time out and make amends with "Two and a Half Men" executive producer Chuck Lorre. "Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck," he writes. "Go on 'Letterman' and make an apology. Write a huge check to the B'Nai Brith. And then beg for your job back."
