Today's news you might've missed:
It seems like Elton John is in total protector mode these days - of his own 17-month-old son, Zachary, and, it seems, world-touring rock stars.
The legendary British singer told The Guardian recently that he does sometimes worry about Lady Gaga’s health.
"She is frail, and she doesn't eat when she should, and she's a girl, and it's tougher for a girl," the 65-year-old said of his 26-year-old friend's grueling performance schedule. “She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes."
Former “Seinfeld” star Jason Alexander got on the wrong side of some of his fans when he made a wisecrack about cricket being a "gay" sport, and he's since apologized.
The actor was speaking with Craig Ferguson on CBS' “The Late Late Show” Friday when the topic came up, and Alexander said cricket was, to him, "a bit gay" because "There's a lot of people wearing white. People wearing helmets for no discernible reason…Everybody breaks for tea in the middle."
And then, "You know how I know it's really kind of a gay game? It's the pitch," the actor went on. "It's the weirdest ... It's not like a manly baseball pitch; it's a queer British gay pitch."
While watching Monday night's episode of "The Bachelorette," I imagined what the "Bachelor" franchise would have looked like if it premiered back in 1976.
For starters, Richard Dawson probably would've been tapped to participate. The game show host and actor, who died Saturday night at age 79, was TV's "Kissing Bandit" on "Family Feud," smooching all the female contestants during the show's original 1976-1985 run. I could imagine him bringing his wit and charm to the manor, adding class to a show that sorely lacks it sometimes. Thanks for the memories, Richard.
Back in today's time, "The Bachelorette" started with a big announcement from Chris Harrison, who was wearing a shirt so purple and plaid that I'm surprised he wasn't the nerdiest Prince fan on the planet.
Classic 1960s sitcom “The Munsters” will be revived with “Sliders” actor Jerry O’Connell as its leading man.
Deadline reports that O’Connell will play patriarch Herman Munster in “Mockingbird Lane,” a reboot of the vintage series about a lovable family of monsters.
The revamped show - which will also reportedly co-star Eddie Izzard (Grandpa), Mason Cook (Eddie) and Charity Wakefield (the “plain” cousin) - will air on NBC. The pilot was written by Bryan Fuller (“Pushing Daisies”) and directed by Bryan Singer (“Superman Returns").
If a picture's worth a thousand words, Lifetime's likely hoping that the first still from "Liz & Dick" vouches for its casting.
The network began principal photography on Monday, and released the first official image from the film, although other unofficial photos have also been floating around.
The black-and-white still shows Lindsay Lohan as the late Elizabeth Taylor, styled to convey plenty of old Hollywood glamour. Kissing her neck in the aptly passionate photo is Grant Bowler of "True Blood," in character as Taylor's storied partner and sometimes co-star Richard Burton.
