Today's news you might've missed:
Over the past year, Kerry Washington took on the challenge of portraying two characters from vastly different time periods.
There's the powerful, if personally misguided, Washington, D.C., "fixer" Olivia Pope on ABC's "Scandal," and the slave Broomhilda in the Oscar-nominated "Django Unchained."
The sizable task at hand wasn't lost on 36-year-old Washington, who told Ebony magazine in its March issue that she's "grateful ... these two women on opposite ends of history, on opposite ends of their experience, both strong women but in such different ways, can exist at the same time."
We assumed that Justin Timberlake's new album is called "The 20/20 Experience" solely because it sounds classy, but alas, the 32-year-old musician has a better reason.
"I was playing some of the stuff for my friends and they would come in and out of the studio and I’d say, ‘What do you think of this?’" he recalled on Ryan Seacrest's radio show Monday. "And my best friend said, ‘This is music that you can see,’ and for some reason that stuck with me."
It's been more than a decade since Helen Fielding published a novel about her character Bridget Jones, but it turns out there's more to Jones' story.
Publisher Alfred A. Knopf announced Tuesday that Bridget Jones will return in a new book scheduled to arrive in November.
The '60s-era drama "Ironside" is being remade at NBC.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered a pilot for a remake from writer/executive producer Michael Caleo.
“A tough, sexy but acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in the city," NBC says in a description of the new "Ironside."
Blair Underwood is on board to star in the lead role Raymond Burr held from 1967 to 1975. David Semel, Teri Weinberg, John Davis and Jon Fox will also serve as producers on the hour-long drama.
This sounds like it could be a match made in comedy heaven.
According to Deadline, "Pitch Perfect" director Jason Moore is in talks to lead a movie called "The Nest," which is being produced by Tina Fey.
Better still, there's a chance "The Nest" could also serve as a post-"30 Rock" project for Fey. (Not that the 42-year-old actress/writer/producer is hurting for employment - she already has "Admission" arriving March 22, and is filming "The Muppets ... Again!" for 2014.)
"The Nest's" script was written by Fey's fellow "30 Rock" and "SNL" alum Paula Pell. The concept centers on two sisters in their 30s who, when they find out their parents are selling their home, decide to spend one last crazy weekend there together.
