Today's news you might've missed:

  • Not quite a hologram, but it'll likely be awesome to fans nonetheless. Queen's said to be plotting some sort of "optical illusion" to get Freddie Mercury to appear in an upcoming show. [BBC]
  • Remember those rumors that Johnny Depp's 14-year relationship with Vanessa Paradis was on the rocks? Not so, the "Dark Shadows" actor recently said on the red carpet for his film’s London premiere. Although he added that he's not sure why he keeps denying it, since no one believes him anyway. [The Sun]
  • Careful, aspiring (and maybe established, depending on how much you like the track) lyricists: Serena Williams is ready to take over the rap game. [TMZ]
  • Everyone can relax/breathe a sigh of relief/stop anticipating a newlywed reality show: Kanye West rapping about a wedding dress wasn't necessarily related to his "friend," Kim Kardashian. "He's just trying to make dope songs," says a "source" close to 'Ye. [Us Weekly]
  • Never mind that "so cute!" is something we normally reserve to describe children and babies, as Jennifer Lopez apparently said as much about her beau Casper Smart on "Idol." [People]

Just over a year ago, Nimoy returned to voice the role of William Bell in a partially-animated episode of the cult sci-fi series.

One "Transformers" movie and one "Big Bang Theory" episode later (both voice roles as well, mind you), viewers were stunned to see Nimoy return once again to "Fringe" in his first appearance on-screen in two years. So what brought him back?
