Leonard Nimoy returns to 'Fringe'

[Editor's Note: Stop reading this post now if you don't want to know anything about Friday night's new episode of "Fringe."]

So much for retirement?

Leonard Nimoy will be back on tonight's episode of "Fringe," in some form or another, as his character William Bell. (Of course it's quite possible that it's only his voice that has been "un-retired": This follows the announcement that he will be voicing the character of Sentinel Prime in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," a nice homage to his work in 1986's "Transformers: the Movie.")

"Bellie," as Walter calls him, has been back on the show for the past few episodes, having taken residence in Olivia's body, in a brilliant Nimoy-esque performance by Anna Torv.

Behind the scenes with David Arquette

David Arquette is notoriously open about his personal life. During interviews with Howard Stern and Ryan Seacrest, the “Scream 4” actor discussed his separation from wife Courteney Cox, his sexual escapades and his 6-year-old daughter Coco - no holds barred.

Life.com editor-at-large Jeff Vespa was privy to the same full access when he spent three days photographing the actor – beginning on April 8, the day after Arquette reached a personal milestone: 100 days sober.

Arquette entered rehab at the start of the year to seek help for “alcohol and other issues,” People reported. He checked out nearly a month later, after completing his treatment.

Kimora Lee Simmons: I'm not anorexic

Kimora Lee Simmons has indeed lost 25 pounds within the past year, but she’d like you to know that she did it in a healthy way.

Although reports spread quoting the 35-year-old saying that she lost the weight by not eating and subsisting on items like smoothies and protein bars, Simmons says in a blog post on her site that that’s not the whole story.

Those reports "led people to believe that I shed 25 lbs by not eating, which is completely ridiculous” Simmons writes. “I am a mother of three young children, two of whom are girls and I’m trying to raise them with a healthy body image. It’s taken me almost a year to lose close to 25 lbs and I did it through healthy diet and exercise.”

Neve Campbell's a 'pussycat' when it comes to scary movies

Neve Campbell hasn’t had to contend with "Scream's" knife-wielding masked killer in a decade, but the 37-year-old actress says that from the first day of working on “Scream 4," it was just like old times.

“It was fun. It’s not just a similar cast, but a good deal of our crew from the last 15 years, so the first days definitely felt like a reunion,” Campbell said in an interview, adding that not everything stayed the same: “Everyone’s a little bit rounder and a little bit older,” she laughed.

But keeping the heart of the cast together was crucial for Campbell as she stepped into the role of Sidney Prescott for a fourth time.
