While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "Game of Thrones" is coming...back on Sunday, April 1 at 9 p.m. Also newly scheduled on HBO's calendar: Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin in "Game Change," which will debut March 10.
  • Adele is warming up her pipes for her first post-surgery live performance at the Brit Awards on February 21. [MTV]
  • The "Twilight" franchise is drawing to a close this year, but Kristen Stewart's still cashing in: The actress is the face of a new Balenciaga scent that's expected to arrive this fall.  [WWD]
  • The plot for the "Friends with Kids" trailer feels oddly familiar - like "No Strings Attached" married "The Switch" and had a baby called "Knocked Up" - but it gets "we might go see this" points based on the cast.

  • Just when you thought witches/superheroes/anyone else with a latent power was "the new vampire," NBC is attempting to create a Dracula drama. The concept will reportedly be very "'Dangerous Liaisons' meets 'The Tudors.'" [Deadline]
  • Katy Perry is looking a little blue, but don't worry, it's probably temporary: The singer's been spotted with new blue hair as she was spotted out stepping out in her first post-split appearance to film an Adidas commercial. [E!]

Lil Wayne to publish memoir on prison time

Lil Wayne to publish memoir on prison time

Lil Wayne will soon speak through the pages of a book instead of the songs of an album, as the rapper has lined up a memoir about his time in prison.

The Young Money star served an eight month stint at Rikers Island in 2010 for a gun charge, and was released in November of that year. While imprisoned, he kept a series of journals, and those writings will be compiled for a book entitled "Gone Till November," Billboard reports.

Set to be released on November 28, "Gone Till November" will reveal the rapper's thoughts about his family, his past, the people he's encountered and his future plans.

Says Ben Greenberg, executive editor of Grand Central Publishing, "We are thrilled to be publishing Wayne's prison memoir. He kept detailed journals of his inner and outer life while he was on Rikers Island, and they certainly tell a story."

'One Life to Live' draws to a close

Editor's Note: This post contains some spoilers for the January 13 episode of ABC's "One Life to Live."

Friday's series finale for long-running soap "One Life to Live" was likely doubly bitter for fans, since they know that the show won't get to shift online as previously hoped. Company Prospect Park announced in November that it couldn't carry on the legacy of either "OLTL," or its fellow deceased soap, "All My Children," on the Web.

And so after 43 years, "OLTL" signed off for good from ABC on Friday. While there was a cliffhanger involved, it wasn't, as TV Line points out, anywhere near the gun firing that brought "All My Children" to a close. (Although at that point, fans were expecting to be able to pick up with the series when it moved online.)

Instead, "OLTL" went for "a bevy of heartwarming moments" to bring the soap to a close, including the paternity of Jessica and the birth of Destiny's son.

Channing Tatum: I know I'm not the best actor

While some may cringe at some of Channing Tatum's career choices - the dance franchise "Step-Up," or the 2010 romance "Dear John" - he tells Details magazine that he took such gigs for a reason, and it wasn't just a paycheck.

"You gotta do 'Dear Johns,'" Tatum said, also adding his February love story co-starring Rachel McAdams, "The Vow," to the list of "musts."

Tatum will play Leo, the loving, devoted husband to McAdams' Paige, who forgets their happy relationship when she suffers severe memory loss following a car accident. Leo, of course, embarks on a mission to help Paige fall for him all over again. (Yup, it's coming out Valentine's Day weekend.)

Sheldon brings the bling on 'Big Bang Theory'

I'll admit that I was extra excited to see that Thursday's return of "The Big Bang Theory" was an episode focusing on "Shamy."

Sheldon being Sheldon, he could care less about Amy's scientific accomplishments, and instead boasted about his 100 Twitter followers... so it looked like he was in the dog house.

And so Leonard stepped in with some tried and true advice: "You skip over any attempt to repair your emotional connection and you win back her affection with an empty financial gesture."

Even if we didn't include his name in the headline, we're betting you could tell the trailer below is for a Wes Anderson movie.

After taking us into the animated world of the "Fantastic Mr. Fox" in 2009, Anderson takes us to summer camp with the live action "Moonrise Kingdom," expected to have a limited release in late May.
