While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • "Hunger Games" casting update: Abercrombie & Fitch model/"Smallville" actor Alan Ritchson has been cast as Gloss in the franchise's next film, "Catching Fire." (You stopped reading at Abercrombie & Fitch model, didn't you? We didn't provide that photo for kicks.)
  • So, an Aaliyah album from Drake is really happening: He said backstage at the OVO festival in Toronto that the new single "Enough Said" is "all off of an Aaliyah project that me and 40 are commanding ... To get 13, 14 new Aaliyah songs, everyone should be excited. It's not about me, it's not about 40. It's about her and her fans and us just getting the opportunity to give you something that we feel is great." [MTV]
  • Rumor of the day: Former "X-Files" co-stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny are reportedly bringing fans' fantasies to life by shacking up. [Gawker]
  • Rumor of the day times two: The gossip on Kristen Stewart from the "Cops" who police it is that the actress has dropped out of one of her upcoming projects, "Cali." [Gossip Cop]
  • Shia LaBeouf is said to be in talks to star in what IndieWire calls Lars Von Trier's "soft-core porn drama" "Nymphomaniac," which we think he'd be perfect for. Clearly he's already A-OK with full-frontal nudity. (That's NSFW, btw). [THR]
  • We're not sure why Debra Messing's "Smash" character Julia is constantly entertaining relationships, seeing at how incredibly unsuccessful she is with that part of her life, but it sounds like she'll have a new love interest when the Broadway-focused NBC show returns. We're not complaining (too much),  because eye candy Daniel Sunjata has been cast as the new guy trying to win her heart. [EW]
  • Just when you were starting to panic, Jennifer Aniston's rep has confirmed that the actress and Justin Theroux are still an item. That hot breeze you feel is the world exhaling in relief. [Wonderwall]

    cnn could possibly be able to see id's(not positive) - I've spoken to CNN in the last month about blogging rules and I can assure you CNN will not waste the time looking for cheating boyfriends or girlfriends, however if someone is saying they have personal info we need to alert them.

  38. The Truth

    Thanks to some fine detective work from a certain well-known Hacker group (that shall remain anonymous) a certain scandalous, inter-office memo will be brought to light from the internal offices of CNN.Com. This memo deals with instructions on how to deal with, what to do and what NOT to do when it comes to Blog (WYWW) Trolls.

    The long and the short of it states this: Site clicks lead to advertising dollars and Trolls lead to more clicks. Trolls, therefore, are GOOD for the bottom line. At first DavidW was sent in here to moderate these forums, then his duties turned to making this a more "Social" friendly blog, allowing users to have some "fun" with each other. If you notice, THAT concept disappeared quickly and the trolling got turned up to "11."

    At this point, not only has trolling become a profitable past-time for CNN, with it now being officially ENCOURAGED by CNN, but some clever traps set by skilled hackers have revealed ip addresses on certain inflammatory posts coming from INSIDE the offices of CNN itself!

    Who watches the Watchmen? We shall soon find out!

      If true this would be hilarious. Both CNNs pro-troll sleaziness, and getting pwned by hackers, neither would particularly shock me. Though I am highly dubious about whether this is on the level. Where will the memo be posted?
