Today's news you might've missed:
Although he's gained a reputation as Hollywood's playboy, George Clooney hasn't totally ruled out the idea of one day settling down for good.

Each new episode of ABC’s “Revenge” further invests viewers in Emily Thorne’s plot to avenge her father’s death.

It was either that gorgeous head of hair, or Daniel’s mother, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), who put that image in our heads. (In the pilot, as well as last night’s episode, Victoria darts to the scene of the crime, crying out for her son.)
