Kristin Cavallari's advice for Lindsay Lohan

CNN iReporter Chris Morrow caught up with "The Hills" star Kristin Cavallari at San Diego Comic Con. Cavallari, who was at an event to accept an award for trendsetter of the year, offered a few tidbits of advice for recently incarcerated star Lindsay Lohan:

"Even, like, when it comes down to parking tickets, pay your parking tickets on time!" says Cavallari. "Just make sure everything is taken care of so that things doesn't follow you and then all of a sudden you're knee-deep in DUIs or parking tickets or whatever it is. Handle everything as it comes in."

Cavallari, who's no stranger to the tabloids, also tells Lohan to try to ignore the media frenzy around her case as much as she can. "It's extremely frustrating, but...at the end of the day, there's no point in getting really upset about it because there's nothing that you can do." FULL POST

Thursday comedies battle for the Comic-Con audience

Two shows with a passionate fanbase and very geeky references both showed up this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, and it just so happens that both will be on at the same time in the fall.

"The Big Bang Theory" hit the Con first and cast members talked about their feelings on the big move to Thursday.

"'Friends' is one of my all-time favorite shows. That was their timeslot for years, so I think it's awesome," said Kaley Cuoco. FULL POST

Next year's big budget summer movies, "Green Lantern," "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" all debuted the first footage ever seen by the public at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday.

Robert Downey, Jr. was there as well as a member of "The Avengers," and announced that Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner would be joining the team as Bruce Banner (a.k.a. the Hulk) and Hawkeye.

Reaction on Twitter to "Thor," "Captain America" and "The Avengers" was quite good overall: "Schofizzy" wrote, "Oh man, THOR looks heavenly! I'm in awe. I've been a believer since day one and this only solidified those thoughts. So pumped!" FULL POST

Fringe star sees double for new season

There have been some great doubles in TV history over the years; Patty Duke and Spock come to mind. So what's it like for Anna Torv, star of "Fringe," to add to that tradition?

"It's been really fun," Torv told CNN on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con. The parallel world version of her character, Olivia Dunham, introduced at the end of last season, is impersonating the "real world" Olivia.

"I want to play her a little bit more," Torv said, "but now that she's back I don't know how much of her we're gonna see."

'True Blood' vamps it up at Comic-Con

"Twilight" may be skipping San Diego Comic-Con this year, but there was certainly no shortage of people wild about vampires at Friday's "True Blood" panel in Hall H.

Joe Manganiello howled at the appreciative crowd, in true werewolf fashion, before it was revealed that he would have a "revealing" episode this week, getting a roar from the audience. Manganiello will soon be a regular cast member, so "Alcide" is here to stay.

Alexander Skarsgard wasn't able to make the panel, so a cardboard cutout took his place. Kristin Bauer was asked what it was like to work with animals, and she joked, "Skarsgard is not so bad."

Nicolas Cage drives out of hell (in 3-D)

You never know what you'll come across at San Diego Comic-Con.

During a rare moment on Friday where there wasn't an impossibly long line for Hall H, I poked my head in and saw Nicolas Cage and the cast of the upcoming movie, "Drive Angry 3-D. "

After the kid-friendly fun of  "Sorcerers Apprentice," Cage is back to action movies in a very big way.
