Jason Bateman's grateful he got 'Arrested'

Jason Bateman has a crazy long resume, but the actor told CNN that he thinks "Arrested Development" was a turning point in his career.

"I wasn't doing much of anything before that show," the actor, who'll next appear in the dramatic thriller "Disconnect," said Tuesday. "I was just really fortunate that that was a show that was watched by those who hand out jobs in Hollywood. There are some shows that are big hits that are watched by middle America but not seen by Los Angeles and New York, and maybe opportunities for people on those shows are not as deep as some of the things that we were given the opportunity to do coming off of that show, so I feel very very fortunate.”

McCartney to re-release 'Wings over America'

If Paul McCartney's 1976 live album with Wings is in regular rotation for you, make note of May 28.

A deluxe edition box set will include a remastered, two-disc version of "Wings over America," a bonus audio disc that was recorded at San Francisco's Cow Palace, and a DVD of the TV special "Wings over the World." The box set also includes a commemorative tour book and four art books that showcase photos and memorabilia from their trek.

Ahead of the deluxe edition's release, the live concert film "Rockshow," which featured the band's 1975 and 1976 "Wings over the World" tour, will open for one night only in various locations around the globe on May 15. If you can't make it (or can't find a screening in your area), a DVD of the film will be released on June 11.

Fans tweet to save 'Buckwild' as MTV stops production

Fans of MTV's West Virginia-based reality show "Buckwild" are rallying to save it in light of MTV's announcement that it's ceasing production on the reality series after cast member Shain Gandee's death.

"After careful consideration, MTV will not be moving forward with season two of 'Buckwild' in West Virginia. We love the cast and the show and this was not an easy decision, but given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him," the network said in a statement Wednesday. "Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately."
