HBO cancels 'Luck' after horse deaths

One day after a third horse died on the set of the HBO drama "Luck," HBO announced that it has ceased all future production.

The racetrack series premiered just last month, and it's expected that it will finish out the first season. (They were in the midst of filming season 2.)

In a statement, the network said, "Safety is always of paramount concern. We maintained the highest safety standards throughout production, higher in fact than any protocols existing in horseracing anywhere, with many fewer incidents than occur in racing or than befall horses normally in barns at night or pastures."

Lindsay Lohan: 'Hit and run' claim is absurd

Lindsay Lohan observers might've had flashbacks to 2007 on Wednesday when news spread that the actress had been in an alleged "hit and run."

But a rep for the 25-year-old tells CNN that her car didn't hit anything, and Lohan herself has called the allegations "a complete lie."

Earlier, TMZ reported that Lindsay had been exiting a Hollywood venue in her Porsche after midnight on Wednesday when she was blocked in by paparazzi and onlookers.

Will Ferrell drops body double with 'Casa de mi Padre'

Will Ferrell faced not one, but two challenges while filming his latest comedy, “Casa de mi Padre."

In the movie, Ferrell plays Armando Alvarez, who, along with his brother, winds up in a feud with a Mexican drug lord when they try to save their father's ranch. To pull it off, throughout the film, Ferrell spoke entirely in another language.

"I thought it would be so interesting and funny, [and that's] where the genesis of the idea came from, was to actually commit to an entire movie in Spanish. I thought, 'I don't think you've ever seen that before.' At least for someone from [an] American comedy to do that."
