While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Before you even ask: No, nothing from your childhood is sacred. CBS Television is plotting a reboot of '80s TV show "Beauty and the Beast" for the CW. [TVLine]
  • In case you were curious, a rumored illicit photograph of an unidentified  gentleman's penis said to have been hacked from Mila Kunis' phone is not Justin Timberlake, a source close to Justin Timberlake reportedly says. A rumored photograph of Justin Timberlake wearing pink panties on his head? That one may still be a possibility... [TMZ]
  • You know how happy Brad Pitt is to have Angelina Jolie for a partner? Well, besides that Parade interview. He's so happy to have her, he wants them to do everything together - including work. [EW]
  • We've seen their "Cribs," and now we can take a journey through their "Hoods," thanks to MTV. The network is working on two comedies and three "docu-series," one of which will be based on the movie "Catfish" and another the aforementioned "Hoods," which follows a celebrity as they return to their roots. First episode? Ke$ha. [The Wrap]
  • And lastly, to cap the end to a very long week, "The Soup" does a parody of one of the worst TV scenes of all time, the boat from "Ringer" that got lost in that sea of green(screen). Clip at the link - along with a nicely done "Community" plug at the end. [E!]

Taylor Lautner 'protective' of Lily Collins on 'Abduction' set

Teen star Taylor Lautner is a hot property in Hollywood, thanks to the “Twilight” movies. But the 19-year-old’s flick, “Abduction,” hasn’t even hit theaters yet and the actor’s already been linked to co-star Lily Collins.

Denzel Whitaker spoke to CNN at the film’s premiere yesterday, and hinted that there may have been something to the rumors.

Whitaker watched the romance between Lautner and Collins blossom on set and wishes the couple the best, whatever they are. “Their relationship was cute and I hope it's still going on, if it's still going on,” he said.

Wyclef Jean is a fan of 'rad' Sarah Palin

At Donna Karan's Fashion Week party in NYC on Monday, singer Wyclef Jean revealed that he's "a huge fan of Sarah Palin,” the former Fugee told Women’s Wear Daily.

Wyclef explained that he’s big on the Alaskan politician “'Cause she’s rad.” The star continued singing Palin’s praises: “She’s shrewd. She’s cool. Because at the end of the day, I’m for the people, because this is the United States of America ... this is what America’s really about.”

Though conservative Palin may not be the most popular figure in Hollywood, maybe the singer can relate because he once harbored presidential ambition himself. Haitian-born Jean campaigned to run his home country last year.

Louis van Amstel talks Chaz Bono and 'DWTS'

Brad Pitt is getting a lot of heat for an interview with Parade magazine! Brad opened up about his relationship with Angelina Jolie and his past marriage to Jennifer Aniston, but a lot of people aren’t happy with what Brad said about Jen.

Immediately after the interview was released, the Brad backlash started and it became so great that Brad backtracked and said he was misquoted. "It grieves me that this was interpreted this way," he said in a statement. "Jen is an incredibly giving, loving and hilarious woman...The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself – and that, I am responsible for.”

I think Brad is usually very careful in choosing his words about his private life, so I do think he regrets answering the question the way he did. I’m inclined to cut him slack here. As long as Jen understands where he was coming from, that should be all that matters. What do you think about Brad’s quotes to Parade? Was it a simple misunderstanding? Or do you think Brad should have just kept quiet?

Tonight, we also have a "Showbiz Tonight" exclusive interview with former “Dancing With the Stars” pro Louis van Amstel. He is disgusted by Chaz Bono’s haters – the people who are lashing out at Chaz over his sex change. Plus, Louis reveals how he thinks HLN’s own Nancy Grace will do on the show. See you tonight, exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.

'Hunger Games' shooting wraps in North Carolina

We’re one step closer to watching Suzanne Collins’ dystopian action series come to life onscreen. “The Hunger Games” has wrapped, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Principal photography on the Lionsgate adaptation was completed in North Carolina, where the movie was shot, last Saturday.

"The Hunger Games" was initially planned as a mid-budget flick for youngsters, but due to the wide-ranging popularity of the book series, it’s become a nearly $100-million production, reports the Los Angeles Times. Lionsgate is targeting movie-goers of all ages, not just teens.

It's Lil Martha Stewart!

It's Lil Martha Stewart!

Imagine a children's cartoon character saying things like: "Something about the lactic acid in milk makes your hands soft," or, "It's hard to sit on a beach when all I wanna do is make invitations," or "Use this to trim off the dead skin around your nails."

It doesn't seem plausible... unless that character is an animated, 10-year-old Martha Stewart.

As it turns out, Stewart is borrowing a page (a hand-letter pressed one, no doubt!) from the book of "Muppet Babies." The digital animated series "Martha & Friends" chronicles the crafty adventures of Martha and her pals Lily, Hannah and Kevin.
