  • No such luck for Oxygen's "The Glee Project." That show has been canceled - but it has nothing to do with the death of "Glee's" Cory Monteith, producers say. [THR]

  • Kristen Stewart found Will Smith, 44, to be "too old" to play her love interest in the caper comedy "Focus." "Wolf of Wall Street" actress, Margot Robbie, has no such qualms. [Variety]
