Today's news you might've missed:
When Joshua Gomez was told at the end of last season that big changes were afoot for his character, Morgan, on "Chuck," he didn't know what to expect.
As Gomez described the scene to reporters on Thursday, "Chris Fedak, one of the co-creators, went down on the set and we were just kind of talking...and he was like, you know, have you heard about [the season finale] yet? And I said no. And he was like, 'Oh, I’m going to be really interested to see what you think.' And I was like, 'Oh boy, I’m dead.'"
When Gomez read the script, "you get to the last page [where Morgan said] 'I know kung fu,' and it was like, you’ve got to be kidding me. This is insanity, I’m a dead man."
Since that moment, Chuck's best friend has had the Intersect – the entire database of CIA knowledge, along with some kung fu skills, to boot – while Chuck himself has had to work on being a spy with no special powers.
According to Business Insider, Jay-Z just released an Occupy Wall Street-themed T-shirt through his Rocawear line, but none of the proceeds will go toward supporting the cause. (Maybe it’s one of those “awareness” products?)
The hip-hop mogul was recently photographed rocking one of the new shirts, which has the “W” in the phrase "Occupy Wall Street" crossed out and an additional “S,” so it reads "Occupy All Streets."
(Pal and OWS supporter Russell Simmons tweeted his love for the political top and wrote that Jay-Z's new shirt "took #OccupyWallStreet to a whole new level.")
Apparently Maury Povich heard the cries of "Maury could take care of this!!" in the comments on various blogs about Justin Bieber's paternity lawsuit, because the talk show host is trying to report for duty.
A rep for Povich's "Maury" show tells CNN that they're "actively pursuing" Bieber's tale of possible parenthood. The "Maury" show is of course infamous for its' "You are/are not the father!" DNA test segments.
The 17-year-old star has been dealing with recent accusations that he fathered a child with 20-year-old Mariah Yeater after a (according to her, incredibly brief) stolen moment backstage at one of his shows.
It's not that family-friendly movies these days don't have nostalgic appeal - see, "The Smurfs" summer box office dominance - it's that those throwback theatrical releases often still carry a 2011 sheen - see, "The Smurfs" summer box office dominance, and note that it was in 3-D.
But with Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin," his animated take on the beloved Belgian boy reporter whose adventures author and illustrator Herge chronicled to the delight of the young and old, star Jamie Bell argues that the message, at least, keeps it old-school.
The character Tintin, 25-year-old Bell told CNN at the movie's L.A. premiere this week, "is a hero but he's not a superhero. You know, he doesn't rely on all these really special powers or advances in technology to make him great; he's great because he just is. And I think that's a great message for kids."
Like many celebs, Madonna says she didn’t fit in as a teenager. The 53-year-old pop icon tells Harper’s Bazaar that her refusal to conform didn't go over well with her peers.
"I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys," she recalls in the magazine’s December issue. "I knew I couldn't fit into that. So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits."
As a result, young Madge’s hirsute state drew insults like “hairy monster” from students at her Midwest high school, where she says she was “tortured.” “The boys in my school would make fun of me,” she says.
