Olivia Wilde's having a boy, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis growing their family is already about all the cute we can handle, but then we caught wind of the way she's remembering her due date: "May the Fourth be with you." And then we died. By the way, Wilde and her funny fiancé are expecting a baby boy. [E!/People]
  • Michael Douglas is on fire. The actor has lined up a new job as Hank Pym in Marvel's "Ant-man" movie. The flick already stars Paul Rudd, who portrays the character who takes over the superhero title from Pym after he retires. [Variety]
  • You don't heckle Steve McQueen and live to tell about it, at least not if you do your heckling at the New York Critics' Circle's awards ceremony. The critic who allegedly disrupted "12 Years A Slave" helmer Steve McQueen's acceptance speech at the ceremony has been booted from the organization [ NYMag's Vulture]
  • "Better Call," text or email your friends obsessed with "Breaking Bad." The spinoff series, "Better Call Saul," will premiere sometime in November, after the first half of "Mad Men's" final season gets underway starting April 13.
  • Non-famous Shia LaBeouf acts so much like Famous Shia LaBeouf we're not sure we're going to be able to tell the difference. Non-famous Shia, who's taken an oath to retire from the fame game, is still prone to tweeting his every thought and rebuttal, including his disagreement with Jim Carrey's plagiarism joke at the Golden Globes Sunday. In case his latest tweets have you think he's retracting his previous announcement that he's retired from celebrity, LaBeouf confirmed, "I AM NOT FAMOUS ANYMORE." [Shia LaBeouf's Twitter]

'True Detective': What's the verdict?

It's hard to go wrong when your new show includes both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, so HBO's "True Detective" was already off to a good start when it premiered on Sunday night.

The new crime drama is set in Louisiana across two time periods as detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) recount a years-long search for a serial killer.

Take a listen to Shakira's duet with Rihanna

When we first heard that Shakira was teaming up with Rihanna for a new song, we imagined something sultry would be the result, a track along the lines of Shakira's hit with Beyoncé, "Beautiful Liar."

But we guessed wrong. The resulting single, "Can't Remember To Forget You," is a Caribbean-influenced rock-fest that takes us back to Shakira's early days.

The Colombian-born songstress co-wrote the track along with RiRi and others, and has been heavily promoting as the first single from her upcoming album arriving on March 25.

What do you think of the single?
