'The Lorax' cast dishes on new movie

Betty White may not have been a fan of Dr. Seuss before, but she certainly is now.

White, who stars along with Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Danny DeVito and Ed Helms in this weekend's animated take on Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax," says the story won her over with its originality.

And while you, like Efron, might remember the book from your childhood, the movie ventures off from the original Seuss creation. The Lorax, played by DeVito, is still there of course, and so is the Once-ler, but the tale of the Truffula trees kicks off with an adolescent crush.

Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax” arrives in theaters on March 2 - are you planning to go see it? Check out the video above to hear more about the release.

Five things you might not know about Cloris Leachman

She's highly accomplished, raunchy and definitely hilarious. If you've watched any movies or TV shows in the last 50 or so years, you've come to know Oscar-winning actress Cloris Leachman well.

Some of Leachman's most notable roles were Phyllis on "Mary Tyler Moore," Nurse Diesel in "High Anxiety" and Frau Blucher in "Young Frankenstein." More recently she starred as the Great Gam Gam in "Beerfest" and plays the grandma with dementia on Fox's hit show "Raising Hope."

Since Leachman has been in show business for quite a while, there really isn't a ton people don't know about her. But when she visited us at to answer iReport questions, we learned some tidbits about Cloris Leachman that you still may not know.

Death Cab shooting first ever live, one-take video

Tonight, at 7 p.m. EST,  Death Cab for Cutie will do something no band has ever attempted.  They'll shoot a scripted music video in one-take while it's being simulcast on the web.

Unlike the one-take videos by 'OK Go,' that can be re-done several times to get it right, Death Cab only has one shot, raising the stakes to new heights.

CNN caught up with two members of the band as they were rehearsing for the big performance.

The music video is for Death Cab's new single "You are a Tourist," off their upcoming album "Codes and Keys." The new album will be available in stores on May 31.

'Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber' won't accept new haircut

It's been a little while since Justin Bieber shocked fans by debuting a more 'mature' haircut, but some are still in denial over the loss of his signature side-swept 'do.

No one seems to be more upset, however, than the founder of a blog called 'Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber,' a catalog of women who have a striking resemblance to the teen pop star.

According to the blog's creator, Dannielle Owens-Reid, ever since Bieber changed his hairstyle, look-a-likes have submitted only one photo sporting the new look.

Owens-Reid told "Showbiz Tonight's" Brooke Anderson that they are "never going to not love Justin Bieber," but she went on to say that having to choose between the "swoopie" or the "spikey" is too much to think about.

Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard really do 'Drive Angry'

What would happen if you ticked off Nicolas Cage on the highway? Would he flip you the bird or just resort to deep yogic breathing?

There's no doubt that driving in Los Angeles can be stressful, so CNN decided to ask co-stars Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard of the new movie 'Drive Angry 3D' just how they handle their road rage.

The key, according to Cage, is to abide by two rules:  "Do not yell, do not flick people off." (Sage advice.)
