While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "Late Show" viewers will now be able to drift off into slumber to the soothing tones of David Letterman's voice through 2014. And if you stay awake to catch Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show," he's staying around for at least two more years as well.
  • Tune in this Saturday, April 7, to see President Obama give an introduction to the remastered edition of 1962's "To Kill a Mockingbird," which will air on USA. [LAT]
  • The red band trailer for Seth MacFarlane's "Ted" is here, but be forewarned: Just because Ted is a stuffed bear doesn't mean he doesn't know how to wield some (hilariously) foul language. Those with sensitive ears should skip this one. [YouTube]
  • Minka Kelly's touchy-feely-ness with Wilmer Valderrama while in Australia has led the Internet to come to the conclusion that they're dating, whether they actually or not. [Celebuzz]
  • Russell Brand meant what he said when he told People mag that he had nothing to "let go of" because he wasn't holding on to anything following his divorce from  Katy Perry. Dude didn't even keep the house - he's reportedly ceded the $6.5 million home to Ms. "Part of Me." [Gossip Cop]
  • Not that we're surprised, but "Game of Thrones" ratings were monster on Sunday, with 3.9 million watching the premiere. It's a series high for the HBO show. [EW]
  • If and when a Whitney Houston biopic were to happen, Rihanna "would love" to play the late singer. [Telegraph]
  • Robert Pattinson had to take off his shirt, get a near sunburn and head out on a body of water with nothing but a surf board and a paddle in order to get some attention. This is what "Hunger Games" hath wrought, kids. [People]
  • Well, this sounds absolutely horrifying/a potential reality show, if it's true: Some doctor who's never treated her says Lara Flynn Boyle's face looks like it's "melting" because of alleged plastic surgery having run its course. [Radar Online]
  • Levi Johnston may or may not be getting ready to be a dad again. [TMZ]

Apple co-founder approves of Kutcher as Jobs

The reaction to Ashton Kutcher landing the role of Steve Jobs in an upcoming indie about the late visionary's early life and the founding of Apple ranged from confused ("So its a comedy?") to displeased ("Zombie Steve Jobs won't let this happen") to hopeful ("Kutcher is just nuts enough to be a good match for the role").

And since the casting news broke Sunday, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has weighed in, and he says he's supports the decision.

"The fear that many might have is that Ashton was selected because he's 'hot' right now. But I feel that his selection was done in the most professional manner," he told TMZ in a statement. "And I'm glad that he's onboard. I think he'll put a lot into it and that he cares about this particular subject."

Carnie Wilson on second weight loss surgery: It's about health

Carnie Wilson is defending her decision to turn to weight loss surgery for a second time in her ongoing battle of the bulge.

The singer went on "Today" Tuesday to announce that her choice had nothing to do with aesthetics, and everything to do with her discovery that she was a borderline diabetic last year.

"I've learned I've got to take care of my health,” said the Wilson Phillips star about her continued journey to wellness, which will be chronicled on the TV Guide network's reality show, “Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On.”
