While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • For a pretty consistently working actor, Brad Pitt sure does have a lot of side gigs. On top of being the face of Chanel No. 5, Pitt's also apparently a furniture designer. His line, Architectural Digest assures us, includes "a rather fantastic bed." Of course it does. [AD]
  • Veronica Mars Kristen Bell isn't the only TV star expecting! So is Beverley Mitchell, a.k.a. the "7th Heaven" actress who had a first row seat at all of Jessica Biel's wedding festivities. [People]
  • What's this? Could Matthew Vaughn have departed "X-Men" because he's in talks to helm for another franchise with intense fandom? But before any "Star Wars" fans form a serious opinion, remember: It's just a rumor as of now! [Collider]
  • CBS' "Elementary" is hitting its marks: It's picked up a full season, and the network will also show it off next year after the Super Bowl. Lucy Liu, Jonny Lee Miller - all eyes will be on you come February. [NYT]
  • We know he's of age, but come on guys - a "Just-in Beaver" blow-up doll? Sigh. [E!]

How your favorite TV characters are voting

With the race between Mitt Romney and President Obama being neck-and-neck, even fictional characters have weighed in on the "who are you voting for?" conversation.

While we're used to seeing political humor on shows like "Saturday Night Live" in an election year, the coverage of the road to November 6 has spilled over into lighthearted but timely plotlines on a number of TV sitcoms.

Sharon Osbourne opens up on double mastectomy

Once Sharon Osbourne learned she carries a gene that makes her predisposed to breast cancer, her next move to get a double mastectomy was a "no-brainer," "The Talk" co-host told Hello! magazine in its latest issue.

'Boardwalk Empire': Gillian’s dark twisted fantasy

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the November 4 episode of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."]

‘Homeland’: ‘My eyes are open. How could they not be?’

[Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the November 4 episode of "Homeland."]

In last night’s episode, “A Gettysburg Address,” Roya had a secret meeting with a man at an outdoor D.C. plaza. Because the mystery man was wearing sunglasses, the CIA’s facial recognition software couldn't positively identify him.

Virgil and Max were on the scene with their fancy audio equipment, but Roya’s conversation couldn't be picked up because the fountain in the plaza made it sound “like Niagara Falls.” When the meeting ended, Virgil followed the man but lost him on the Metro. Carrie figured that their only hope was to bring Brody in to try and ID the man.

Baby on the way for Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard

Engaged pair Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are expanding their family.

A rep for 32-year-old Bell tells CNN that the couple are expecting their first child in late spring. (How we wish they taped their reaction when they found out, as we're sure it topped Bell's reaction to a sloth run-in on her birthday.)
