Baby on the way for Neve Campbell

Surely this was something for Neve Campbell to "scream" with joy about: People magazine reports that she's expecting a baby.

If you've seen paparazzi shots you might've guessed as much, as Campbell's been spotted with a tell-tale baby bump recently, E! News notes.

But a rep for the 38-year-old actress has nonetheless confirmed that she and actor JJ Feild are set to welcome their little one later this year. The couple's "thrilled," the rep adds to People mag.

According to E!, Campbell has been dating Feild, 33, since last year. The "Captain America"  actor will next be seen in "Austenland," while up next for mommy-to-be Campbell is a Lifetime movie that she also produced called "Sworn to Silence."

TMZ says Brand grabbed the photographer's iPhone on Monday and threw it through the window of a downtown business - an incident the star seems to admit to on Twitter.

Ingrid Michaelson keeps building

Fans may count five albums in singer Ingrid Michaelson's body of work, but her math is slightly different.

The “Be OK” singer explained to CNN that she doesn't think her "very first album" counts.

"I don’t consider [it] anything because I hate it,” she said. “My second album is what I consider to be my first album, 'Girls and Boys.' My third album was a glorified EP called 'Be OK,' that had some cover tracks and some live tracks, but it’s very sparse and wasn’t meant to be a full album. In my brain, the second album is 'Everybody,' and the third album is 'Human Again,' which is now.”

Friday Top Five: TV at the Movies

Jonah Hill’s “21 Jump Street” movie arrives in theaters today, and there's no doubt that when some of us saw the trailers for this comedy, we were understandably confused.

“Wait, wasn’t that TV show pretty serious? Didn’t it star a young, brooding Johnny Depp?” Why yes, it was and it did.

When a TV show gets remade as a movie, sometimes all bets are off. It can stick as close to or veer as far from the source material as it wants. Since we seem to be living through an endless string of these remakes, don’t expect it to change anytime soon.

'30 Rock': 'Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Dummy'

'30 Rock': 'Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Dummy'

It’s easy to forget that “30 Rock” is more than a just joke machine (because the jokes are so good!), but what makes it a truly great show is the humanity of the characters (yes, even not-certified-human Kenneth).

So when Tracy said, “It sure is rewarding as a TV viewer when someone you’re invested in shows growth,” it was a nice summation of an episode in which even perpetual dummy Dennis Duffy has evolved.

Tracy and Jenna were set to host NBC’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, but Hazel reignited their rivalry when she showed them a promo that gave Jenna top billing. Pete explained, “we don’t let them watch NBC. Jenna thinks that Christina Aguilera lost her voice during childbirth.”
