While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • The "Anchorman 2" casting director seems to be staffing up according to our list of favorite funny people: James Marsden is the latest to join the comedy, which just added Kristen Wiig earlier this month.
  • It would appear that Diane Lane wasted no time in moving forward with a divorce from Josh Brolin, as reports suggest she filed on February 15. [TMZ]
  • If you have yet to see these stunning photos of Jennifer Lawrence as Miss Dior, you need to drop what you're doing and check them out immediately: [WWD]
  • Lindsay Lohan's lawsuit against Pitbull, which took issue with his lyrics in "Give Me Everything," has been dismissed. On the plus side, though, at least that's one less court case in rotation. [EW]
  • We haven't glimpsed little Sebastian "The Bash" Taylor Thomaz yet - nor would we expect to, considering he's just a day old - but even the kid's blanket is adorable. It doesn't hurt that first-time dad Wiz Khalifa has the best expression on his face as he holds his newborn. [Amber Rose's Instagram]
  • You can't hold down the Beek from the Creek. "Don't Trust the B-- in Apt. 23" is (sadly) over, but James Van Der Beek is bouncing back with a new comedy on CBS called "Friends with Better Lives." [THR]

Cirque du Soleil brings King of Pop to Vegas

Cirque du Soleil has confirmed that a new show inspired by the work of Michael Jackson is coming to Las Vegas this year.

Called "Michael Jackson ONE," the King of Pop-themed event will start preview performances on May 23, and will officially premiere June 29 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

"Michael Jackson ONE", written and directed by Jamie King, is described as "a theatrical evocation of Michael’s creative genius." The story focuses on "four misfits" who embark on a "transformative adventure ... guided and inspired by [Jackson's] music ... By journey's end, they will personify Michael's agility, courage, playfulness and love."

This marks the second MJ-inspired show from Cirque du Soleil, as they're also currently showing "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour," which also uses the pop icon's music.

General ticket sales for "Michael Jackson ONE" begin March 7.

'Parks and Rec' says 'I do'

There were understandably high hopes for the "Parks and Recreation" wedding episode (which we only knew was going to happen for the past week, sneaky NBC).

Thursday night's first of two new episodes delivered in every way imaginable. (Ann's decision to have Chris be the father of her baby, momentous as that is, is a discussion for another day.)

Last week's ratings also didn't help.
