Today's news you might've missed:
In case you didn’t already get the memo, “The Hunger Games” is going to be big. Like “Twilight”- and “Harry Potter”-big.
The flick, based off Suzanne Collins’ young adult novel of the same name, hits theaters on Friday, and is expected to rake in more than $80 million.
However, given Fandango’s report that the website is selling 10 “Hunger Games” tickets per second, $80 million seems like a conservative estimate.
Wilmer Valderrama and Steve Harris are two sides of the same coin.
Valderrama and Harris are turning heads in their latest series, "Awake," as the two detectives partnered up with Jason Isaacs' Michael Britten, a man who lives in two realities. (One's a dream and one's real, but which is which?)
Valderrama is still remembered for his role as Fez on "That '70s Show," and this gritty procedural/psychological thriller is about as far from that sitcom as you can get.
“Sex and the City” producer Michael Patrick King isn’t enthralled by the idea of a prequel to the HBO series, but it seems Carrie Bradshaw herself is ready to pass on the torch.
Sarah Jessica Parker, who played the Manhattanite for six seasons (and two films), recently reached out to AnnaSophia Robb, who plays a teenaged Bradshaw on The CW’s “The Carrie Diaries.”
“She sent me a letter! I wrote her one back, too,” Robb told Us Weekly. “She was just very encouraging about it all. It was really cool.”
Usher has collaborations on the brain.
The “Climax” singer stopped by U.K. radio station Capital FM to tease his upcoming collaboration with British singer-songwriter Labrinth.
The track will be featured on his forthcoming album, “The Shanertance,” due out this year.
There's a lot to like about "Bent," especially on paper.
Amanda Peet has been great in just about everything, David Walton showed promise on the short-lived "Perfect Couples," and you really can't go wrong with Jeffrey Tambor ("Arrested Development") and J.B. Smoove (.Curb Your Enthusiasm").
Wednesday night's two-episode premiere also featured whip-smart dialogue at times, especially between Peet and Walton, as Alex the homeowner and Pete the contractor, respectively.
