While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • If these early negotiations pan out, "Hunger Games" fans could see Julianne Moore sign on to the franchise as District 13 leader Alma Coin. [THR]
  • Well, well, well, look who else is going to be at San Diego Comic-Con this year: Gillian Anderson! The actress will be attending the "X-Files" 20th anniversary panel, of course, plus a few others. You can also catch "Ender's Game" stars Harrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld there at the Hall H panel on July 18.

Roughly six months after the producer/DJ popped the question to the celebrity tattoo artist via Twitter in December, Kat Von D tweeted hints that their engagement is a wrap. "Man, I'm a fool," she posted Wednesday night. "Cheating on your loved one is the most hurtful thing one could do. I hate to have to admit, that this relationship is indeed over."
