Today's talk you might've missed:

  • If all goes well, David Mazouz is about to become very, very popular. The kid actor, who portrayed Kiefer Sutherland's son on "Touch," has signed on to play the young Bruce Wayne on Fox's Batman prequel, "Gotham." Camren Bicondova has also joined the cast as Selina Kyle (a.k.a., the girl who grows up to be Catwoman). [THR]
  • Robin Thicke is still trying to woo back his estranged wife Paula Patton with his performances. In Atlantic City, he told the audience that he loves Patton "too," and then proceeded to play Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." [People]
  • Lupita Nyong'o is a Mexican-Kenyan, guys. She said so herself. End of argument. [The Wrap]
  • But while we're talking about Oscar winners, Jared Leto has already messed up his best supporting actor trophy. [ET Canada]
  • The last time we heard about Vito Schnabel, he was dating Demi Moore, but apparently the son of artist Julian Schnabel has moved on to Heidi Klum. [NYDN]
  • With the persistent rumors indicating that Scarlett Johansson is expecting, it's left us wondering what could happen to her role in the "Avengers" sequel. Insiders are saying that it's likely her scenes as Black Widow will be fast-tracked. [E!]
