  • Alec Baldwin quit his former "public" life but he hasn't quit acting. The 55-year-old has lined up a gig on "Law & Order: SVU." Get this: he's going to play a journalist. [Time]
  • If HBO's "Looking" was keeping its eyes peeled for a renewal, it's found it. The freshman series has been granted a season 2. [Twitter]
  • Katy Perry and John Mayer have either broken up again, or they're planning to get married. The Internet can't decide which. [E!]
  • David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin are planning to pretend like Ashton Kutcher's "Jobs" never happened and get to work on a Steve Jobs biopic of their own. [Film School Rejects]
