New blood on 'SYTYCD'

It seemed as though many of the regular choreographers (with the exception of semi-regulars Mandy Moore, Toni Redpath and guest judge Travis Wall) were given the July 4 weekend off on Wednesday night's "So You Think You Can Dance."

The result was a mixed bag from several new choreographers, but the good ones were really, really good.

This time, I'll put the bad news first. Aside from the fact that guest judge Carmen Electra (who openly admitted she's not an expert on waltzes) didn't bring much to the table, there was that Sean Avaristo hip-hop routine with Sasha and Alexander that fell completely flat. Look for them in the bottom three tonight.

Daniel Craig: 'Dragon Tattoo' is as adult as can be

If the book, the redband trailer and the (NSFW) movie poster of a topless Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander didn’t tip you off, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” isn’t for kids.

The adaptation coming from David Fincher in December is “as adult as you can possibly make it,” Daniel Craig told Esquire in the magazine’s August issue. “This is adult drama. I grew up, as we f---–g all did, watching ‘The Godfather’ and…movies that were made for adults.”

The recently married 43-year-old star continues, “This is a $100 million R-rated movie. Nobody makes those anymore. And Fincher, he's not holding back. They've given him free rein. He showed me some scenes recently, and my hand was over my mouth, going, Are you f---–g serious?"

Jennifer Aniston still talking about that 'Break-Up'

Jennifer Aniston’s performance in the movie “The Break-Up” was a heartfelt one: The actress says on “Inside the Actors Studio” that she drew from her real-life split from Brad Pitt for the role.

The 2006 movie, co-starring Vince Vaughn, “was a beautiful human story about a couple breaking up,” Aniston tells the Bravo show’s host, James Lipton. “And I was slightly familiar on the topic and the issue, and I honestly felt like, what a great way to exorcise some of that.”

If anything, she adds, her personal break-up made her job easier.
