Tina and Amy roast Rickles, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Comedy roasts can be hit or miss, but add Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to just about anything and we're interested. The two comedians are part of the witty crowd paying tribute to Don Rickles in Spike TV's upcoming "One Night Only: An All-Star Tribute to Don Rickles." And by "tribute," they clearly mean "roast."

  • Netflix continues to be the answer to our dreams. They are considering turning "Wet Hot American Summer" into a TV series. [Variety]
  • While we're on the subject of movies becoming TV shows, Quentin Tarantino is thinking about making "Django Unchained" a four-hour miniseries. [USA Today]
  • According to a deleted tweet that's been screengrabbed and sent around the Internet, Miley Cyrus is calling Jennifer Lawrence a liar. [Perez Hilton]
  • Oof, this news makes us nervous: Marvel and director Edgar Wright have "parted ways" over "creative differences," meaning Wright won't be helming "Ant-Man." [THR]
  • In case you're curious, Katharine McPhee is about to be single again. [People]
