Lena Dunham can’t keep a secret! The star and executive producer of Girlstold Alec Baldwin on his podcast that the Golden Globe-winning comedy will return for a third season.
“We’re starting season three at the end of March,” she’s heard telling Baldwin. “I’m so excited.”
Girls began its second season on Jan. 13, the same night it won the Golden Globe for best comedy series and best actress (Dunham). Girls delivered 1.6 million viewers across three airings compared to 1.1 million across two airings last year.
Dunham also hinted to Baldwin that they may make 12, as opposed to 10, episodes for the third season.
“I would love that,” she said. “I don’t want to like – I don’t have any desire in doing like, you know, a 22 episode – I don’t even understand how someone does the 22 episode marathon. But I do think that doing – I think that a little more would be just a little more storytelling real estate and it would be amazing. But you know, so I shoot four-and-a-half months out of the year, then I’m editing, then I’m doing press, then I’m writing, then I’m back.”
Inspired by real events, The Good Lie centers on a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the U.S. with three other lost boys. Encountering the modern world for the first time, they develop an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman assigned to help them, but the young man struggles to adjust to his new life and his feelings of guilt about the brother he left behind.
Monsieur Lazhar‘s Philippe Falardeau is set to direct from a screenplay by Margaret Nagle (Warm Springs).
The Good Lie will be produced by Black Label Media, the newly formed production and financing company from The Blind Side‘s Molly Smith. Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Karen Kehela Sherwood are producers, with Kim Roth and Reliance Entertainment’s Deepak Nayar as executive producers.
Nagle, who won WGA Awards in 2006 and 2011, developed the screenplay in Imagine Writer’s Lab. She is currently adapting Tuxedo Park for Playtone. Nagle is repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney David Matlof.
Witherspoon has a slew of films on tap, including Mud on May 26 and the forthcoming The Devil’s Knot. She is repped by Management 360 and CAA.
Falardeau’s Monsieur Lazhar was nominated for best foreign-language film last year at the Oscars. He is repped by UTA.
Affleck will play a seasoned grifter who teams up with and teaches a rookie girl, to be played by Stewart. Their relationship gets complicated as they start to develop feelings for one another. The lead roles had originally been pitched for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.
Glee actress Amber Riley has become the latest star to leave the hit U.S. TV show.
The 26 year old, who plays Mercedes Jones on the musical series, will bid farewell to the New Directions glee club at McKinley High at the end of the current third season as her character graduates from school.
After filming her final scenes for the program, she took to Twitter.com to write, “That’s a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life.
“I’m going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday! I have so many brothers and sisters now. But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! School’s Out Glee Kids! Let’s play!”
Actress Ashley Fink, who portrays Lauren Zizes, was revealed to have been dropped from the cast last month, while series co-creator Ryan Murphy previously announced he would be fading out the characters played by leading stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith as they ‘graduate’ this season, although they will return for cameos in future episodes.
Jennie Garth, best known for her role on the original “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and Peter Facinelli, the actor who plays the adoptive patriarch of the Cullen family in the “Twilight” movies, confirmed today that they are splitting after 11 years of marriage.
As E! News reported, the couple released a joint statement that said, “While we have decided to end our marriage, we both share the same deep love and devotion to our children. We remain dedicated to raising our beautiful daughters together. We ask for privacy and respect during this time.”
No reason for the split was given. This is not the first time reports of a break-up have circulated. Last July, Perez Hilton reported that Facinelli, 38, and Garth, 39, were living apart, but other outlets said the rumor was false.
The timing of the pending divorce is eyebrow-raising, considering that Garth’s new reality show, “Jennie Garth: Little Bit Country” — which chronicles the family’s move to a California farm — is slated to debut next month on CMT. Presumably marital troubles will be part of the story line.
Facinelli — who brought one of the couple’s three daughters, Luca Bella, to last night’s “Hunger Games” premiere — wed Garth in 2001 at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Montecito, Calif., where two of Garth’s “90210” co-stars, Tori Spelling and Tiffani Thiessen, served as bridesmaids.
It was Facinelli’s first marriage and Garth’s second; she married musician Daniel B. Clark in 1994 and finalized a divorce from him in 1996, the same year she met Facinelli while filming a TV movie called “An Unfinished Affair.”
In addition to Luca, now 14, the pair has a 9-year-old (Lola) and a 5-year-old (Fiona).
Pop superstar Selena Gomez has another single coming out later this month. The new track is called “Hit The Lights” and we’re excited to hear in on the radio!
Selena’s album “When The Sun Goes Down” is such a fun album which catchy and danceable tracks. Her new single “Hit The Lights” is a perfect example as it’s a positive song about having fun and just letting go. It’s the perfect song to follow her latest single “Love You Like A Love Song” and I can see it becoming a bit hit.
The morning after actress Meryl Streep walked off with an Oscar many bet would go to Viola Davis, Streep gave a cash-strapped school in Rhode Island a $10,000 donation in Davis’s honor, the school’s founder said on Tuesday.
Davis, 46, has been a champion for now-bankrupt Central Falls, Rhode Island, the town she grew up in and has herself donated cash to help keep the library open.
Her longtime friend and sometimes rival Streep, 62, in response to Davis’s cheerleading sent a $10,000 check to a local charter school, the Segue Institute for Learning, which faces closure.
The check arrived on Monday, the morning after Streep won the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady,” beating out front-runner Davis, who played a maid in “The Help.”
“We’ve just been screaming from the rooftops,” said Angelo Garcia, founder and director of operations at the school.
“We’re excited Meryl Streep has gotten the ball rolling for us, but we recognize there’s a long road ahead of us,” he said.
The school is currently located in a public building that’s slated to be sold because of financial difficulties in Central Falls, said Garcia, who has been friends with Davis since childhood.
It must buy the building or move to another location in the next 12 or 13 weeks, he said.
The donation from Streep’s Silver Mountain Foundation for the Arts – which the charity confirmed – will help the school start a capital campaign aimed at raising $1.2 million to buy and renovate the building and an adjacent community center, Garcia said.
Davis has “always kept us on her radar,” Garcia said, and the donation followed a conversation Davis had with Streep “about a little school started” by her longtime friend.
The school has more than 200 students this year and was expected to grow to 240 next year, he said.
Billy Crystal, Angelina Jolie’s leg and French silent film “The Artist” brought the Oscars bouncing back from recent slack viewership, drawing a larger-than-expected 39 million TV viewers and setting social media abuzz.
Some 39.3 million Americans watched the Oscars ceremony on television on Sunday, up from the 37.6 million audience in 2011, according to preliminary ratings data.
Broadcaster ABC said it was the second largest TV audience for the Academy Awards since 2007.
The bigger audience came and stayed tuned-in despite criticism that host Billy Crystal, 63, put on an old-fashioned show, and that the big awards went to “The Artist”, a film that few people have seen.
The Academy Awards also retained all of its 2011 audience in the 18-49 year-old age group prized by advertisers, and drew more women in that viewer category than last year.
The annual Oscars ceremony show is traditionally one of the most watched events on U.S. television but audiences have fallen away in the past few years, especially when blockbuster films like “Avatar” are not in the running for the biggest honors in the movie industry.
“The Artist”, which has made only about $30 million at the North American box office, was the big winner on Sunday with five Oscars including best picture, best director and best actor for Frenchman Jean Dujardin.
Crystal, making his 9th appearance as Oscar host, got mixed reviews. Alessandra Stanley at the New York Times said “the whole night looked like an AARP pep rally,” while Tim Goodman at the Hollywood Reporter called Crystal’s efforts a “safe unfunny retro-disaster.”
But the news was not all bad for Crystal. Entertainment Weekly’s Ken Tucker said it was a “jolly good show,” and the New York Daily News said that Crystal “recaptured smartly the formula that worked for him in the past: quick-hit opening monologue, a song-and-dance number, then a sprinkling of jokes that had an edge but never drew blood.”
Despite the jibes from critics about being old-fashioned, the Internet was abuzz with Oscar talk as millions of people watched and chatted online before and after the telecast. ABC said four million people visited website Oscar.com or used an Oscar smartphone app on Sunday alone.
Social media tracker Trendrr said social activity during the show – ranging from online buzz to Twitter comments and Facebook ‘likes’ – doubled from 2011 to 4.2 million hits on Sunday. Red Carpet coverage brought 3.9 million hits.
Meryl Streep, who was a surprise best actress winner over presumed front-runner Viola Davis, attracted the most mentions on social media, Trendrr said. The most-mentioned actor was “The Artist” star Jean Dujardin.
Angelina Jolie set the online world alight when she thrust her leg out of her thigh-high slit dress while presenting an award. Within minutes, a Twitter account had been set up with the handle “angiesrightleg,” and by Monday it had some 17,000 followers.
Sunday’s Academy Awards TV audience was on a par with February’s Grammy Awards show, which was watched by a bumper 39.9 million Americans and fueled by the sudden death of singer Whitney Houston.
Kate Middleton is royalty, but that doesn’t mean that she wants to hire a bunch of people to focus on her weight loss or gain. She doesn’t feel the need for a personal trainer and she actually hates dieting. She doesn’t really need to diet, considering that she’s already naturally thin.
A source said, “For as long as I’ve known her, she’s never had a trainer.”
She does work out, doing three 40-minute workouts per week. She does rowing at a private gym, along with running and weight training. Us Weekly reports:
When in London, the slim, 5-foot-10 beauty visits Clarence House’s small private gym for rowing, running and weight training. But when she’s home in Anglesey, Wales, with hubby Prince William, 29, “she never works out indoors, regardless of how rough the weather is. She likes to go on hikes, carrying small weights for her arms. She says it kills two birds with one stone,” says the palace aide, adding, “William joins her on weekends.”
Kate, 29, keeps eating simple too. Though one pal says, “she hates dieting,” she sticks to healthy picks like oatmeal, dried fruit and almonds. “Kate’s not much into sweets,” says the aide, “but she does love Kettle chips!”
Of course she hates dieting, every woman I know hates dieting. So she’s just like us! If you add in the royalty, fame and marrying a Prince in a fairytale ceremony….wait, she’s nothing like us. Moving on.
Daniel Radcliffe may be the star of one of the most popular movie franchises of all time, but he still has a thing or two to learn about dating.
Luckily the actor has found love with girlfriend Rosie Coker, a production assistant he met on the set of the last Harry Potter film.
“I hated dating, because I’m crap at it! With Rosie, I didn’t know what was appropriate, like on which date you’re supposed to try and kiss her,” Radcliffe tells Sunday’s Parade magazine.
Early on in the process, Radcliffe, 22, recalls, “I went to kiss Rosie and at the last minute lost my nerve and ended up kissing her neck, which is a very intimate place to kiss somebody on the second date. Fortunately, she just found it really funny.”
Sounds like the actor’s dating flub didn’t hinder things with Coker.
“When Rosie’s here, every day seems better,” he says. “Ultimately, I think, it comes down to that – having somebody in your life who makes you happier than you thought you could be.”
Radcliffe, who recently ended a Broadway run in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and will next star in The Woman in Black, says he’s “not an easy person to love.”
“There are lots of times when I’m a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I’m useless,” he says.
“I mean, I’m a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things (fantasy football, most recently). And she listens to it, and she loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness – all of those things that I hate about myself.”
Scarlett Johnasson is very fond of her “We Bought A Zoo” co-star Matt Damon.
The actress stars as Kelly Foster in the film, a zookeeper who helps Benjamin Mee (Damon’s character) re-open and run his recently purchased zoo. The movie is based on the true story of Mee and his family, who run the Dartmoor Zoological Park in England.
“It’s been incredible,” Johansson said about working with Damon in an interview provided by the film’s studio, 20th Century Fox. “I’ve been a huge fan of his since I was a kid, since he was a kid, and I just think he’s an incredibly generous actor.”
Johansson goes on to say Damon is “unbelievably professional and unbelievably kind and so much fun to work with just because he’s a lot of laughs when it’s that time and when it’s down to the work he’s just present and focused and he’s just a gem.”
The film is directed by Cameron Crowe, known for writing and directing films like “Jerry Maguire” “Almost Famous.” Before working in the film industry, Crowe worked as a music journalist for Rolling Stone and his love of music is reflected in many of his films.
“Cameron plays a lot of music when we’re filming,” Johansson revealed. “He plays a lot of music when we’re setting up. I listen to a lot of music, I’m an avid lover of music and I shared a lot of music with Cameron and he shared with me.”
“I think that he has a lot of understanding of the beats and of the dialogue and the understanding of the beats of our character’s actions,” she added. “He thinks of that in a lot of ways as a sort of musicality.
As for her character, Johansson said, “She’s a very practical person and I think is good natured and she’s a person who picks animals over people and I think that’s very much who she is and where her head is at.”
“She’s a very much a person who gets it done and gets it done well and leaves no loose ends,” she added.
“We Bought A Zoo” hit theaters on December 23. Check out the trailer below.
Elizabeth Hurley, who manages to look young despite being in her late 40s, has acknowledged Shane Warne plays a major part in keeping her in good shape. The 46-year-old actress stays slim with a regular exercise plan, but admits it can sometimes be hard to stick to her own regime.
“Shane is very disciplined when he has to be but, bizarrely, I eat at least three times more than him because I’m far greedier and think about food all day long,” The Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
“He’s naturally very athletic because he’s been a professional sportsman for over 20 years. He keeps threatening to make me run with him, but I’ve resisted so far!” she said.
“I put myself under pressure to remain slim because I still model my own bikinis but it is much more difficult to feel motivated in the gloomy winter.
“I wrap myself up and try to walk every day with my dogs and sometimes force myself to run a bit – but I hate it. I love Pilates and yoga but, again, am more likely to do them in the spring and summer,” Hurley said.
When it comes to her diet plan, Hurley says she is relatively relaxed with what she eats but always makes sure what she eats is organic.
“I almost never eat anything from a tin or a packet and the same goes for over the festive season. I’m passionate about home-cooked food and am convinced that eating a lot of packaged and processed food encourages weight gain.
“If you think about it, a homemade cake has only four ingredients; butter, eggs, sugar and flour but if you look at the ingredients list of a shop-bought cake, it can be quadruple that and most of it stuff you don’t want in your body,” she added.
Lindsay Lohan was led in shame, not to mention handcuffs for probation violation from an L.A. courthouse.
Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked her probation and set a hearing for Nov. 2, when a one-and-a half jail term will be on the table.
It is curious that Lohan never seems to learn from her legal tribunes. Lohan said she was thrown out of her probation-required program at the Down Town Women’s center for missing nine sessions.
She told her probation officer she did not find the Center “fulfilling.”
The judge concluded Lindsay violated her probation, scoffing time after time. The Judge also doubted Lindsay attended sessions with her shrink once a week, as the Judge required.
The judge dismissed Shawn Holley’s argument that Lindsay had to go abroad to work — where she was seen partying on several occasions — and that’s why she missed a number of community service appointments, saying, “She’s supposed to be an actress, from what I hear.”
TMZ said Lindsay’s bail bondsman appeared in court and will be bailing her out shortly.
The judge could barely contain her contempt for the Probation Dept., which gave Lindsay a glowing report. Judge Sautner said the Probation Dept. had no authority to send Lindsay to the Red Cross to do her community service and said Lindsay would not get credit for the time she served there.
Before Lindsay was taken away in cuffs, the judge said Lindsay must complete 16 hours at the morgue before the November 2 hearing.
With a year to go before Taylor Swift expects to put a new album in stores, the singer says she’s already recorded enough tunes to fill a double disc CD. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest Thursday morning, Swift revealed that she’s been writing and recording since her last album ‘Speak Now’ was released.
“I’ve recorded 25 so far, and we have a year to go,” Swift said. While most of the material on ‘Speak Now’ came within six months of the album’s completion, the singer says she’s been active for over a year. Many of the songs were written on her own, just a girl and her guitar with pen and paper at three o’clock in the morning.
“Being so busy there’s not a lot of time to stop in the middle of the day and just kind of think about this feeling that you just realized about a relationship you had a year ago,” Swift commented when asked why her best ideas come so late at night. “The ones I love the most end up happening very quickly.”
Two weeks ago, an article in the New Yorker shared that Swift hasn’t been happy lately. When asked about the songs she’d written for the new album, she said, “They’re sad? If I’m being honest.” The most recent one, she revealed, “is about moving on.” There’s speculation that Swift has gone through a tough breakup this summer.
Heidi Range is planning to marry her fiance Dave Berry next year and she already picked out a wedding dress.
Heidi Range plans to marry in winter 2012.
The Sugababes singer – who is engaged to TV presenter Dave Berry – has revealed her plans for the ceremony are well underway, and she has already picked out a dress.
She told Britain’s Star magazine: “We want to do it in the winter next year. I want to make sure everything’s perfect! I’ve already found the dress, so I just need to find the venue and then everything else will fall into place.”
However, her Sugababes bandmates Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen – who replaced Keisha Buchanan in the line-up in 2009 – will not be joining her as bridesmaids on the special day.
She said: “I’ve always wanted my sister, my best friend, and Dave’s sister.”
The original line-up of the band, which also included Mutya Buena, was famous for in-fighting, but although the group are calmer now, Jade admits joining was “very difficult”.
She said: “I was the change in the line-up, so indirectly people associated all the change of sound with me.
“There was too much going on at once. I just went through the motions. We were turning up every day just trying to get through it. It was a very difficult time.”
