Today's news you might've missed:

  • Congratulation for Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh! The couple welcomed a baby girl Friday morning. Check out their lengthy statement below:

"Early this morning Kayte gave birth to Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer. We are thrilled. She was 6 lbs. 2oz. when she entered the world at 1am on the 13th of July in the year 2012. Mother and child are in excellent health. We were ecstatic earlier this year, when we announced that Kayte was carrying twins. Tragically we lost the little boy shortly thereafter. This was not something we cared to make known publicly at the time. It was unspeakably painful and we know that people will understand our desire to keep the news private then, as we know they will respect our privacy in this matter now. A glorious birth with a lingering sadness is ours today. We choose to celebrate the life that has been given us. We proudly introduce our Faith to the world today looking forward to the days ahead and the children yet to come."

  • Well, we know the fans wouldn't have it any other way: Word out of Comic-Con is that the new showrunners are planning to keep "Community" just as weird as ever. [CNN Geek Out!'s Twitter]

  • Charlie Sheen's Twitter account was once the source of many a laugh, but fans are going to have to get their giggles elsewhere. Sheen posted a cryptic tweet Friday morning that just may have signaled his departure from the social networking site. [E!]

Schwarzenegger looking forward to 'Twins' sequel

A sequel to "Twins" is inching closer to the big screen.

One of the stars of the 1988 comedy, Arnold Schwarzenegger, recently told Comic-Con attendees that the reported follow-up is underway, CinemaBlend reports.

"I think they have moved it along, and director Ivan Reitman has shown interest in being involved, [studio] Universal is excited about it," Schwarzenegger said. "We are now looking for a great writer to write the sequel, and I'm looking forward to doing it, because I think it will be hilarious."

Back in March it was rumored that Eddie Murphy might even join Schwarzenegger and his "Twins" co-star Danny DeVito in the film, thereby turning the "Twins" sequel into one called "Triplets." Although Schwarzenegger didn't mention it, all three of the actors are said to have signed off on the concept.

Up next for the actor/politician is August's "The Expendables 2," which he helped promote this week at Comic-Con.

'Louie' gets lost in translation

Unlike other shows, "Louie" takes place in the real New York. A city devoid of glamour, where businesswomen and homeless men sweat side-by-side on subway platforms, and old men eat club sandwiches in dimly lit diners.

On Thursday's episode, Louie explored the back alleys and bodegas of another city. In Miami for a hotel gig, he retreated to his room to eat in bed, with only the hushed weight of his loneliness as company.
