Today's news you might've missed:
Rihanna is set to make her movie debut in a film version of the board game “Battleship," and the first official photo of the pop star as Petty Officer Raikes has been released.
Gone are the star's signature skimpy outfits and wild hair; in costume, a fresh-faced Rihanna sports a brunette cropped ‘do and buttoned-up camouflage while gripping an oversized weapon.
Set for release in May 2012, “Battleship” centers on a fleet of Navy ships fighting “an armada of unknown origins.” The action movie also stars “True Blood” vampire Alexander Skarsgard, Liam Neeson and model Brooklyn Decker.
Rock star royalty Frances Bean, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, is all grown up (and tatted up) in bold new shots from photographer Hedi Slimane.
In the series of black and white photos, 18-year-old Frances looks strikingly like both her parents in worn clothing and goth accessories.
Pale and dark-haired, she also looks much more like an adult than the baby-faced kid we’re used to seeing in magazines and photos, such as in the snapshot above.
Frances interned for Rolling Stone in 2008, and debuted a collection of art last summer at a Los Angeles gallery.
A big screen version of MTV “reality” series “The Hills” may not be what TV viewers are clamoring for, but it may be coming anyway, according to Audrina Patridge.
A spin-off of reality show “Laguna Beach,” “The Hills” followed Lauren Conrad and pals Patridge, Lauren “Lo” Bosworth, Brody Jenner, Heidi Montag, Spencer Pratt, and Kristen Cavallari for six seasons as they stirred up drama amongst themselves. After much speculation about scripting, the show’s July 2010 finale revealed a Hollywood lot and backdrop, confirming that the series wasn’t real.
When the show ended, executive producer Adam DiVello wanted to bring Lauren Conrad & co. to the big screen. But the cast wasn't feeling it. Now that their careers have cooled off, it appears the frenemies are interested in doing a movie after all.
Just this past Friday, Syfy's official Twitter was knocking down reports that one of its most beloved shows, "Eureka," had been canceled.
"Although we don’t have a commitment beyond 6 episodes for the 6th season, we’re hopeful this will not be the end of the franchise," Craig Engler, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Syfy Digital, said at the time.
Flash forward to Monday night, when Syfy put out the statement that made Twitter explode: "After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka."
Ashton Kutcher is not only an actor - and Charlie Sheen’s replacement on “Two and a Half Men” - but he’s also turned into a tech guru and businessman.
Kutcher, 33, covers the September issue of Details, and gives his two cents on social media scandals, Twitter popularity and filling Sheen's sitcom shoes.
The actor once had the most popular Twitter account in the world, and still enjoys sharing his life with seven million followers. “I think privacy is valuable,” he says. “But at the end of the day, if you're not doing anything wrong you don't have anything to hide.”
