Larry King's 'Harry Potter' special to air July 10

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2” hits theaters on July 15, marking the end of an era.

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint will join CNN’s Larry King on July 10 for a special hour-long program, featuring interviews with the cast and never before seen footage of the soon-to-be-released film. (Do you have questions for Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis, director David Yates or producers David Heyman and David Barron? Ask away by uploading a 15-seconds-or-less iReport video by noon ET on July 8 and you could see the answer on CNN.com!)

“I was so young, it’s difficult to remember much of my life before this thing happened to me,” Watson tells King. “I was still losing my baby teeth [while playing Hermione]."

Soundcheck: Seven years in, Matt & Kim still have that feeling

When Brooklyn based duo Matt & Kim arrived in Philadelphia as part of their “Sidewalks” tour in early June, the temps were so sweltering that drummer Kim Schifino says she almost threw up on stage.

Good thing their next stop brought them to Atlanta on a thick, humid day, where the heat from outside was felt even more in the grungy confines of The Masquerade, where the two were set to play.

But the sticky weather actually hit the perfect note for the band, consisting of Kim and singer/keyboardist Matt Johnson, since they love nothing more than to throw a “sweaty dance party.”

Shia LaBeouf covers the August issue of Details

Shia LaBeouf hooked up with Megan Fox?

If we know anything about Shia LaBeouf by now it’s that the actor doesn’t bite his tongue, least of all about former co-star Megan Fox.

The 25-year-old star has explained that it may have been Fox’s “Spice Girl strength” that led to her bouncing from the “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” set, and also chimed in when Michael Bay claimed that it was Spielberg who fired Fox after she made those Hitler comparisons. (“She started s- talking our captain. Which you can’t do,” he told GQ.)

And now, in an interview with Details for its August issue, LaBeouf alludes that he and Fox were closer than some may have thought. According the magazine, when LaBeouf was asked if he “hooked up” with 25-year-old Fox, who is married to Brian Austin Green, the “Transformers” actor nodded in the affirmative.

Let's talk Charlie (Sheen)

Unemployed winner that he is – according to his Twitter profile – Charlie Sheen is keeping people talking.

The 45-year-old actor is at the center of a new round of reports on whether he’s found a new job on TV and what will become of his character on “Two and a Half Men.”

In May there were headlines that Sheen was preparing to return to television as early as January, and now a report has surfaced claiming that Lionsgate Television has worked out a sitcom deal with the actor. TBS (which, like CNN, is owned by Time Warner) was supposedly one of the networks interested in the program.

'The Bachelorette' breaks with Bentley (we think)

'The Bachelorette' breaks with Bentley (we think)

Last night's episode of "The Bachelorette" had Ashley expressing excitement about the latest show destination, Hong Kong, calling it "an island, a city and more."  This makes Hong Kong the Reese's peanut butter cup of world cities.

Meanwhile, she's still talking about Bentley. In fact, she's mentioned Bentley about a dozen times in the first three minutes of the show. If you're still playing that drinking game I proposed two weeks ago, you've probably passed out at this point.

At the hotel, Chris Harrison tells Ashley that the show has located Bentley and ordered, er, "asked" him to come to Hong Kong and talk to her. Chris tells Ashley to not leave Bentley's room unless all her questions are answered, striking fear that ABC's primetime schedule could be preempted for the next month as a result.
