For the readers of AskMen.com, the guy who made the biggest impact this year and most shaped "what it means to be a man of influence in 2012" isn't a real man at all. He's fictional. (And he's not alone: Christian Grey from "Fifty Shades of Grey" was named the 13th most influential man of the year.)

While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • The honor of "first canceled TV series of the season" goes to CBS' "Made in Jersey," which apparently wasn't made to last. [EW]
  • We haven't seen the last of McSteamy, "Grey's" fans. Eric Dane's Mark Sloan may be dead to our doctors at Seattle Grace, but the actor's career might find new life in a TNT pilot from Michael Bay called "The Last Ship," about the crew on a naval destroyer. [Deadline]
  • It says a lot about expected paydays when we hear a rumor that Liam Neeson earned $10 million for "Taken 2" and we think, "really? That's all?" [HuffPo]
  • Love's aboard the set of ABC's new series "Last Resort," as Scott Speedman has scooped up a new squeeze: His co-star Camille De Pazzis. [Us Weekly]
  • Uma Thurman, it seems, is ready to show her sultry side ... and probably some skin while she's at it. The actress has joined the cast of Lars Von Trier's "epic pornographic drama," a.k.a., "Nymphomanic." [THR]
  • Jennifer Lawrence's bank account is undoubtedly about to be filled to the brim: When not filming a potential box office smash, Lawrence will find time to rake in more loot as the new face of Miss Dior. [E!]
  • While Kelly Clarkson's new single "Catch My Breath" sounds to our ears essentially like everything else she's ever done, we find that to be a great thing:

Watch: Trailer arrives for 'Hitchcock'

"All of us harbor dark recesses of violence and horror," says Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock in the new trailer for the eponymous film. "I'm just a man hiding in the corner with a camera - watching."

Released on Wednesday, the clip for Sacha Gervasi's drama about the making of Hitchcock's "Psycho" is edited and scored in a way to create a delicious sense of humorous suspense.

But it's not enough to detract from the powerful on-screen duo that is Anthony Hopkins as the legendary filmmaker and Helen Mirren as his wife, Alma Reville.

Speaking to The Daily, Nicks, who served as a coach to "Idol" contestants last season, gave a (very) strong reaction to Minaj's outburst during "Idol" auditions last week.
