Today's news you might've missed:

  • Questlove of The Roots tipped off his Twitter followers to pay close attention to the song the band played as Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann dropped by "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, and according to reports, it turned out to be Fishbone's "Lyin' A-s B-–." Host Fallon has since tweeted that Questlove is "grounded." In a statement to ABC News, Questlove says, "The performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision. The show was not aware of it and I feel bad if her feelings were hurt. That was not my intention." [Questlove's Twitter/Jimmy Fallon's Twitter/ABC News]
  • Ewan McGregor is making a play for the small screen. The 40-year-old actor has landed a role in HBO's adaptation of lauded novel "The Corrections." McGregor will portray the middle child, Chip, in the network's take on Jonathan Franzen's fictional Midwestern family. [THR]
  • Speaking of book adaptations, Aaron Sorkin says he's "strongly considering" taking on the task of penning the Steve Jobs biopic. "Right now I'm just in the thinking-about-it stages," Sorkin said. "It's a really big movie and it's going to be a great movie no matter who writes it." But c'mon, who better than Mr. "Social Network" for the job? [E!]

Wagner to guest star as murder suspect on 'NCIS'

Tonight's episode of "NCIS" might get a bit awkward.

According to MSNBC, actor Robert Wagner plays Anthony DiNozzo, Sr., who will be a murder suspect on the new episode, "Sins of the Father."

This episode is airing just days following the decision by Los Angeles authorities to re-open their investigation into the 1981 death of Wagner's wife, Natalie Wood. Police said Friday that Wagner is not a suspect in the new probe into Wood's drowning, but his "NCIS" character will be under police scrutiny.

Wagner has appeared on the series before as the father of special agent Anthony DiNozzo, and tonight Wagner's character is expected to be led away in handcuffs.

The new episode of "NCIS" airs at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Christopher Nolan spills 'Dark Knight Rises' details

Empire magazine has some new details on the upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" in its latest issue, which also features two covers: one of Batman, and the other of Bane.

Director Christopher Nolan reveals to the magazine that a lot of time has passed in between the conclusion of 2008's "The Dark Knight" and the starting point for 2012's "Rises."

"It's really all about finishing Batman and Bruce Wayne's story. We left him in a very precarious place," Nolan tells Empire. "Perhaps surprisingly for some people, our story picks up quite a bit later, eight years after 'The Dark Knight.' So he's an older Bruce Wayne; he's not in a great state."
