While you were working ...

Today 's news you might've missed:

  • With a month to go till filming begins, the remake of "RoboCop" has made a switcheroo: Michael Keaton will be taking Hugh Laurie's spot as Raymond Sellars, the head exec of the company that creates RoboCop. [Deadline]
  • Also, in casting, Jorge Garcia's picked up a guest spot on an upcoming episode of "Once Upon a Time" as a giant, perhaps for a Jack and the Beanstalk storyline. Consider our interest piqued. [TVLine]
  • This reads so much like an off-brand "Sex and the City" episode we shouldn't even try and bring it to your attention, but the scene it paints is just priceless: The gossip on John Mayer is that he broke up with Katy Perry via email. Please note that "gossip" is the operative word here. [HollywoodLife]
  • The reports about "Beverly Hills 90210" actors Jennie Garth (Kelly) and Luke Perry (Dylan) finding love also sounds a lot like fan fiction, but hey, O.G. "90210" fans can dream - and they should keep dreaming, because a rep for Garth says there's zero truth to the hopeful rumors. [Gawker]
  • Shia LaBeouf would like you to believe he got his role in "Nymphomaniac" by sending in sex tapes of himself and his girlfriend. [HuffPo]
  • We know this didn't technically happen while you were working - more like while you were sleeping, perhaps - but it's still hilarious. We present to you, "Reasons Why Rebel Wilson Wins at Life," in video:

    • ah...

      Yes, I saw that, too. You're right, very said. I also saw that it has been ruled that Sly Stallone's son died of a heart attack, and that no drugs were involved. FYI

    Michael Keaton is too 1980s for this. He really isn't funny or an overly likeable actor.

    I wasn't too sure about "Once Upon a Time" when it 1st came on, but, turned out to be a pretty good show. Lookin' forward to the new season!

    • ah...

      I got to admit, I like the show, too. I don't really see this Jorge Garcia as a giant, though. He's big, but not in a "giant" sort of way. I really liked him in Lost. I wonder if Alcatraz is coming back this season? Anybody know?

      Hi ah..., It seems like Alcatraz has been off air for awhile now. I haven't seen any ads for it at all. IDK, if there's a new season or not. (alot of help I am. Lol)

  12. Good Health John

    Hey John Mayer, I know you've just had your surgery and it must be terrifying. I hope all the best for you. Too bad you had to come to Hollywood for the medical attention because as soon as you landed you had paparazzi following you hungry to make up stories. Relax, heal, get well.

  14. ah...

    So John Mayer dumped Katy Perry by email. Wow, that took some real balls. He said she partied too hard for him. It seems she has a hard time hanging on to a guy. Sokman, you still have a chance. lol

      By e-mail, what a pansy! If Katy Perry knew of all the times Sokman said he'd drink her bath water, ya know, he might just stand a chance. "Go for it Sokman, I'll be rooting for ya"!
