Today's news you might've missed:
- Frankie Muniz suffered a mini-stroke last Friday, and while we agree that he does need to take care of himself (we hope you feel better, Frankie!), we disagree that he's getting old. He's only turning 27 on December 5! [Twitter]
- Not quite a mega-movie-franchise, but a TV deal isn't bad. J.K. Rowling's "The Casual Vacancy" is being turned into a drama for BBC One. [Telegraph]
- The New York Film Critics Circle enjoyed Matthew McConaughey in chaps as much as we did. He won the best supporting actor award for his raunchy romp in "Magic Mike" as well as for his work in "Bernie." [NYFCC]
- Kate Bosworth has been flying low on the Hollywood radar lately, but perhaps she's been quietly angling for a music career. The 29-year-old actress shows her vocal ability in a new holiday-themed ad for Topshop.
- Taylor Swift appears to be fully aware that the holiday season is the best time to find a ... let's say "friend," seeing that it's cold outside, presents are about to be exchanged, etc. The chart-topping singer has Swiftly moved on from her romance with Conor Kennedy to holding hands at the Central Park Zoo with One Direction's Harry Styles. [MTV]
- This Rob Kardashian/Rita Ora gossip is growing a longer tail. Apparently, the youngest Kardashian went back in for a round two Monday evening on his supposed cheating ex, whom the Internet has concluded is Rita Ora. [Gossip Cop]
- Fringies, the end is near: "Fringe" executive producer Joel Wyman has been tweeting images from the set as the final episode is being shot (which also happens to be the 100th episode, which cast and crew celebrated over the weekend). Its title? "An Enemy of Fate." [Hypable]
- It may not have gone over well with parents of impressionable kids, but Matt Damon's giggly "tossing salad" joke on "Today" this morning has us hoping he's going to be a tawdry-minded regular.
