Kristen Stewart's 'Snow White' may end up a trilogy

The “Twilight” saga will come to an end on the big screen in 2012, but Kristen Stewart may be tackling another franchise with her role in next year’s “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

The 21-year-old actress stars as the fairest of them all in the film, which sees Charlize Theron as the evil queen and "Thor's" Chris Hemsworth as the huntsman. But instead of stretching a single plotline across three films, says producer Joe Roth, he sees it instead as three separate stories.

“It’s meant to be the first in a series of films,” he tells Entertainment Weekly. “This story will end, but there will be questions remaining for these three characters.”

Everyone’s a Critic: Summer TV

In the fall, I’ll need several advanced logarithms to figure out a plan to DVR all of the shows I’ll be watching. But right now, the TV landscape is a little more sparse.

That means there’s an opportunity to watch shows I normally might not make time for, like “Covert Affairs,” “Falling Skies” and “Wilfred.”

They’re not the greatest shows ever, but they’re entertaining enough to overlook some occasionally clunky dialogue and implausible/predictable plot points. And a large part of that willingness to dive into these shows is the fact that, honestly, there’s not a whole lot else on. (If you're saying to yourself, "Jordan, I thought this was supposed to be a critical blog. Why are you writing about shows you like? Where’s the hate?" I'm getting there...)

Sheen roast to air same day as Kutcher's 'Men' debut

Charlie Sheen and his “Two and a Half Men” replacement, Ashton Kutcher, will have a TV face-off of sorts come fall.

Comedy Central’s “Roast of Charlie Sheen” is set to air the same day as “Men’s” ninth season premiere, which marks Kutcher’s series debut.

However, viewers will have some time to recoup between the CBS sitcom and the primetime roasting as they'll air an hour apart.

Nadya Suleman: I never said 'I hate babies'

Nadya Suleman is reportedly steaming mad over an interview she says she never even gave.

As we reported earlier, In Touch Weekly released a story which quotes the mother of 14 – including a set of octuplets – as saying "I hate babies, they disgust me."

According to the article, Suleman is at her wits end and "utterly overwhelmed" with the task of raising her mega-family alone, which the interview says has resulted in her being both financially and emotionally devastated.
