While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Dustin Hoffman is preparing to start production on his new film, "Boys Choir," with a clean bill of health. According to his rep, the star has successfully been treated for cancer. [People]
  • There really is a first time for everything: Early bird Al Roker, who's spent 39 years on morning TV, accidentally overslept and missed the taping of his show "Wake Up with Al" on Tuesday. [Us Weekly]
  • Donald Glover's reduced screen time on "Community" is leaving room for new opportunities. The actor/rapper/comedian is developing a half-hour music themed comedy for FX that's tentatively titled, "Atlanta." [THR]
  • Benedict Cumberbatch's reach now extends to "Madagascar." The "Sherlock" actor has been tapped along with John Malkovich to voice two new characters in 2015's "The Penguins of Madagascar." [The Wrap]
  • We're more intrigued than scared by the new teaser for "American Horror Story: Coven," but we're sure that'll all change when the season premieres in October on FX.

      Hey Peace. How you doing? All is well here. I'm pretty sure Al Roker called in sick at some point. He surely must have had a case of taco s**ts at some time. Perhaps that is why he soiled himself at the White House lol.

      Hey Sadie! Doing good here. How about you? Yep Al really did crap his pants while at the White House. I imagine he had to have been embarrassed then.

    First he s**t himself at the White House and now he overslept his own morning show. Al Roker is on a roll.
