While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • If he used to perform with College Humor, we're betting that he'll be funny on "The Farm" too: Thomas Middleditch (left in the photo above) has been cast as Dwight Schrute's brother Jeb on the upcoming "Office" spinoff on NBC. [EW]
  • While some stars like to pretend that they're totally chill with the people who gave them life watching them get down and dirty on camera, Kirsten Dunst has been more honest. "I can't do that to [my Dad]," she's said of not filling him in on her latest movie, "Bachelorette." "I didn't even tell him there was an L.A. premiere." Which is exactly what we would've done, from fear of an awkward Thanksgiving alone. [E!]
  • It's probably a payday for some of you out there, so let's talk dollars and cents, specifically how they might relate to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: Rumor has it Papa Cruise'll have to shell out $400,000 a month in child support until his daughter Suri turns 18. Frankly, we'd expect a hear a rumored higher number. [TMZ]
  • Also in money talks: Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban, who are said to be close to sealing a pair of deals with "American Idol." Minaj is rumored to be circling a deal that would offer $8 million, while Urban would reportedly pull in $3-4 million. [THR]
  • And speaking of Nicki Minaj - have you seen her music video for "I Am Your Leader"? [MTV]

    Weather ForecastingIt was October and the Indians on a remote reservation asked their new Chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was a Chief in a modern society he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared. But being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is the coming winter going to be cold?" "It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold," the meteorologist at the weather service responded. So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again. "Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes," the man at National Weather Service again replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter." The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find. Two weeks later the Chief called the National Weather Service again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?" "Absolutely," the man replied. "It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters ever." "How can you be so sure?" the Chief asked. The weatherman replied, "The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy."
