'Louie' and his 'Late Night' dreams

[This post contains spoilers for the August 30 episode of FX's "Louie."]

On the latest episode of “Louie,” the beleaguered comedian headed to Los Angeles. And as with so many saucer-eyed starlets before him, opportunity came knocking.

This episode defied Louie’s expectations as well as ours, replacing the usual intro with an acoustic ditty playing over a static shot of Hollywood’s famed Improv theater.

Stars react to Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood isn't running for office, but his speech at the Republican National Convention Thursday has drawn just as much attention as anything Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said.

The 82-year-old actor's conversation with a chair, meant to symbolize an invisible President Obama, drew reactions from all sides, including plenty of jokes from his Hollywood contemporaries. Who knew a piece of furniture could elicit this much response?

While you were working ...

Today 's news you might've missed:

  • With a month to go till filming begins, the remake of "RoboCop" has made a switcheroo: Michael Keaton will be taking Hugh Laurie's spot as Raymond Sellars, the head exec of the company that creates RoboCop. [Deadline]
  • Also, in casting, Jorge Garcia's picked up a guest spot on an upcoming episode of "Once Upon a Time" as a giant, perhaps for a Jack and the Beanstalk storyline. Consider our interest piqued. [TVLine]
  • This reads so much like an off-brand "Sex and the City" episode we shouldn't even try and bring it to your attention, but the scene it paints is just priceless: The gossip on John Mayer is that he broke up with Katy Perry via email. Please note that "gossip" is the operative word here. [HollywoodLife]
  • The reports about "Beverly Hills 90210" actors Jennie Garth (Kelly) and Luke Perry (Dylan) finding love also sounds a lot like fan fiction, but hey, O.G. "90210" fans can dream - and they should keep dreaming, because a rep for Garth says there's zero truth to the hopeful rumors. [Gawker]
  • Shia LaBeouf would like you to believe he got his role in "Nymphomaniac" by sending in sex tapes of himself and his girlfriend. [HuffPo]
  • We know this didn't technically happen while you were working - more like while you were sleeping, perhaps - but it's still hilarious. We present to you, "Reasons Why Rebel Wilson Wins at Life," in video:

Michael Douglas as Ronald Reagan in indie film?

Michael Douglas' next role might be pulled from the history books.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Douglas is in talks to play former President Ronald Reagan in a film called "Reykjavik."

The independent project centers on the 1986 nuclear arms discussions held between Reagan and Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev in the titular capital of Iceland.

Ridley Scott, now serving as a producer on the film, at one point was considering directing, but at the moment Mike Newell is reportedly in talks to helm the $10 million project.

THR notes that "Reykjavik's" producers are still looking for an actor to play Gorbachev - any thoughts on casting?
