Steve Carell, Keira Knightley to star in romantic comedy?

Deadline reports that the funnyman is expected to headline "Seeking a Friend at the End of the World," a love story that unfolds as an asteroid is about to wipe out the earth.

'Grey's Anatomy' gets all 'Glee' on us: What's the verdict?

“Grey’s Anatomy” mixed its medical dramatics with singing on last night’s episode, and as with all musical episodes of TV shows, it can be a risky proposition.

Quick catch-up: Dr. Callie Torres (played by Sara Ramirez) and Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) were in a car accident following Arizona’s marriage proposal, an accident made all the more horrifying by the fact that Callie’s pregnant. That trauma is how we got this singing business incorporated in the first place.

As the New York Post explains, “‘Grey's' solution for that [spontaneous singing] problem was theorizing that the brain does crazy things after an injury, so a post-crash Callie was hallucinating that everyone at Seattle Grace was bursting into song.”

Reaction to that move has been pretty mixed.

Getting 'Mobbed' with emotions

Since I blog about "American Idol," my television was already set to Fox on Thursday night.

The show uses the concept of flash mobs, where hundreds of folks show up spontaneously for a single event. In this case, a guy named Justin wanted to propose to his girlfriend of three years, Nikki.

Franco: Maybe I had 'low energy' at Oscars

After being criticized by Oscars viewers, James Franco is finally speaking out about his hosting gig, saying that perhaps he was a little too "low energy."

On tonight's "Late Show With David Letterman," Franco tells the talk-show host that many people thought he was stoned during the ceremony.

"People said I was under the influence," says the actor. "I've thought about it. I think I know why: I love her, but Anne Hathaway is so energetic, I think the Tasmanian Devil would look stoned standing next to Anne Hathaway. She has a lot of energy!"
