Today's news you might've missed:

  • We've always pegged Ryan Gosling as more of a lover than a fighter, but this video just may prove us wrong. The actor is being pegged as the valiant Samaritan in the striped tank top who stopped an NYC street fight in the video below.  [New York Daily News]

  • Surprise, surprise: Runaway bride/Playboy model Crystal Harris is trying to get her own reality show. You don't say! [TMZ]
  • While Kim Kardashian was busy blowing a reported $10 million on her "fairytale" wedding, former flame Ray J was celebrating his 30th birthday in Vegas. [Bossip]
  • If you didn't like "Tree of Life," Sean Penn says to lay the blame on director Terrence Malick. Penn's quoted as telling Le Figaro, "A clearer and more conventional narrative would have helped the film without, in my opinion, lessening its beauty and its impact...What’s more, Terry himself never managed to explain it to me clearly." [The New Yorker]
  • This snippet of Amy Winehouse's duet with Tony Bennett, "Body and Soul," is only 45 seconds long, but you don't need much more to marvel at what a great voice the late singer had. [Idolator]

Four 'Glee Project' finalists land 'Glee' cameos

Not one, not two, but all four of the finalists from "The Glee Project" have been offered the chance to appear on Fox's series "Glee," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen both took the top prize of landing a seven-episode arc on the show, but fellow finalists Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell say their two episodes a piece isn't anything to sneeze at.

"For the first time in my life I couldn’t say anything; I was speechless," Newell told THR of learning about the opportunity to guest star. "It’s a moment in my life that I’ll probably never forget because it was the only moment in my life that I was quiet for."

Lil Wayne gets 'gnarly gash' skateboarding

Lil Wayne is recovering from what sounds like a nasty spill taken at a St. Louis-area skate park.

The rapper was in town to perform at a concert on Sunday, and afterward headed out with his skateboard. After taking a fall, though, he landed at the DePaul Health Center emergency room, reports Rolling Stone.

"The Lou was good but I busted my...head at the sk8park!" Wayne tweeted Monday. "9stitches! Gnarly gash over my left eye! Luv the people."

The 28-year-old is gearing up for a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday, and is set to release his album, "Tha Carter IV," immediately after the show on the Web.

Weekend reviews in 140 or less

"Fright Night," "One Day," "Conan the Barbarian" and "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World" were the new movies at the theater this weekend, but it was actually the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's "The Help" which won the box office.

The movie pushed past the well-received "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" to earn an estimated $20.5 million this weekend, leaving the four newbies with more paltry openings.

Although "Spy Kids" did the best out of the foursome with $12 million, we're going to start with "Fright Night," since apparently none of you went to go see Jessica Alba's kid movie with Aromascope.
