Depp pays Gervais back for Golden Globes jokes

If it feels like Gervais' routine at the Golden Globes was a lifetime ago, it's because it sort of was, but that doesn't make this clip from the comedian/actor's new show any less funny.

Gervais recruited Johnny Depp to play the disgruntled Hollywood star still ticked that Gervais had the nerve to "trash" him "in front of, like, 200 million people at the Golden Globes," as "The Rum Diary" actor says in the clip for the sitcom "Life's Too Short."

Katie Holmes as 'HIMYM's' slutty pumpkin

Are you in the scantily-clad costume day Halloween spirit yet? If not, maybe Katie Holmes can help.

The actress will be on Monday's Halloween edition of "How I Met Your Mother" as the "slutty pumpkin" that Ted (Josh Radnor) has been hoping to reconnect with since episode six.

Finally, this hard to find love interest is unmasked, and we find out that her name is Naomi and that it apparently takes her a few drinks before she breaks out in her best tootsie roll.

Creator Craig Thomas told Vulture when he and Carter Bays announced the casting in September that Holmes "is a lovely and talented actress, which is why we've saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show's history."

Watch Holmes don the slutty pumpkin wear on the October 31 episode of "How I Met Your Mother," on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.

Josh Holloway, Chris Brown land 'Planet B-Boy'

Josh Holloway, Chris Brown land 'Planet B-Boy'

Chris Brown's acting career is moving right along: The 22-year-old star, also appearing in Steve Harvey's film "Think Like A Man," has been cast alongside "Lost" actor Josh Holloway in "Planet B-Boy," according to Entertainment Weekly.

Production is already underway for the film, which is based on the lauded documentary of the same name. "Jumping the Broom's" Laz Alonso, Josh Peck ("Drake & Josh") and Caity Lotz ("Mad Men") have also been cast.

The doc "Planet B-Boy" focused on the international breakdancing community, and the plot for the fictional release follows the same idea. It'll tell the story of an American group of b-boys who travel to France to compete in the Battle of the Year International Championships. We don't know the specifics on the roles Brown and Holloway will portray, but one can guess they'll have to bust a move at least once.

The director of the "B-Boy" documentary, Benson Lee, is also directing this adaptation.

'Project Runway' adds an 'Accessory'

Take heart all you "Project Runway" fans who fear acute withdrawal once the season finale airs - there's always "Project Accessory."

The spin-off to the popular fashion design show debuts Thursday right after the season-ending episode of "Runway" (I'm rooting for Anya to make a come-from-behind victory, by the way).  In the spin-off, 12 designers will compete for $100,000 and other prizes by crafting shoes, handbags, jewelry and other accessories. All on nerve-wracking deadlines, of course.

Actress/model Molly Sims is hosting the show, with design magnate Kenneth Cole among the judges. The elaborately-named Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti will serve in the Tim Gunn/mentor role.

Adrian Grenier has to console 'Entourage' fans

Since HBO's "Entourage" ended, actor Adrian Grenier says he has "changed from being Vinny Chase the celebrity to Adrian the therapist," offering a shoulder for fans over the demise of the series.

"I have to console so many people on the street," he told CNN. "I mean grown men practically in tears now wondering what they're going to do now on Sunday nights. So it's a lot of huggin' it out."

The actor has plenty of time on his hands now for projects like the site SHFT.com, which he co-founded. The website encourages people to live sustainable lives, offering a holistic view of sustainability, with everything from architecture to travel.
