Charlie Sheen: That was all one weird phase

If you haven't noticed, Charlie Sheen is no longer spouting a Sheen-ism a minute, running from talk show to daytime program to nightly news segment exclaiming "winning!" and "I'm a rock star from Mars!"

Instead, he's bouncing from "The Tonight Show" to "Today" trying to explain what was going on with him during those crazy weeks. Interestingly, not even the actor himself has wrapped his head around what happened earlier this year.

"That was a time when, you know...I really don't know what happened," Sheen tells Matt Lauer on "Today." "It was one of those things where, boy, the planets were either aligned perfectly or imperfectly. I just said some stuff and it caught traction globally and instantly and I couldn't really put out that fire so I kept fueling it."

Jerry Ferrara talks potential for 'Entourage' movie

Believe it or not, actor Jerry Ferrara doesn’t have much in common with his television alter ego, “Entourage’s” Turtle.

Having gone from a Boston Market employee in 2004 to one of HBO's most popular shows, Ferrara made a name for himself as the loyal, overweight, pot-smoking, freeloading best friend of the show’s protagonist, Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier). Fast forward to 2011 and the actor's just wrapped portraying a more fit and serious Turtle, not to mention he's walking away from "Entourage" having written a few episodes of the show.

But sans potential of a movie, what if we have seen the last of Turtle? If so, how does the guy who spent a good part of his adulthood playing the character prove he can grow beyond the show that gave him his first real break?

'The Secret Circle': Are witches the new vampires?

[Editor's Note: This post includes spoilers for the pilot episode of the CW's "The Secret Circle."]

Attractive teenagers. Love triangles. Supernatural elements. Unexplained deaths. The CW’s “The Secret Circle,” based on the book series of the same name, is everything its target demo could want in a new program.

So far there’s no mention of vampires or werewolves, but “The Secret Circle’s” magic quality – sorry for the pun – should be enough to carry the show.

Unbeknownst to main character Cassie (Brittany Robertson) at the start of the pilot, she’s a witch. (She also knows how to change a tire, sans magic - or AAA - which is pretty impressive.)

Brad Pitt: Jen Aniston wasn't dull, I was

Brad Pitt would like to clear a few things up.

In an interview with Parade magazine, Pitt reflects on what life was like in the '90s. He tells the mag that he spent a lot of time "trying to hide out" and escape the "full celebrity cacophony." His hide-out process, he said, involved sitting on the couch with a joint in his hand, and eventually he started to feel "pathetic."

Here's where his ex Jennifer Aniston comes in: Pitt tells Parade that "It became very clear to me...that I wasn’t living an interesting life myself...I think that my marriage [to actress Jennifer Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t."
