"Colin Firth offered the chance to design a burger for Burger King..."

Boiled meat patty with curry sauce? Served with a side of chips.

"Larry King plans one-man comedy tour..."

Also known as the Larry King Sex Tape.

"Lindsay Lohan expected in court today" -- Expect Michael and Dina to be hanging out with Nancy Grace and Greta Von Susteren in the anchor booths ringside.

"Scarlett Johansson, Russell Brand added to Oscar lineup" -- Her I sorta get. Him, no. Sorry. No.

"Colin Firth offered the chance to design a burger for Burger King" -- The D'Arcy and the D'Arcy Jr.? As long as the BK Meal doesn't come with a CD of him singing in "Mama Mia," I'm good.

"Natalie Portman's new Miss Dior Cherie ad" -- Now THERE'S a candidate for Worst Actors in Hollywood History. Wood. En.

"Dianna Agron reportedly 'terrified' of ex Alex Pettyfer" -- Ex? Did I miss a post? I guess that earlier movie of his shoulda been called "Alex Rider: Heartbreaker."

"Kevin Costner on tap to play Superman's adoptive dad" -- Cf. above re: Worst Actors, etc. etc. Just tell me he's not going to try to do a midwestern accent.

Lindsay Lohan expected in court today to make formal plea bargain offer: she's already got a car hotwired and ready to go.

Russell Brand added to the list because in his spare time is a top-notch Scarlet Galabekian clone detector - a kind of a Blade Runner, if you will.

"Colin Firth offered the chance to design a burger for Burger King." Will it also be f-f-f-f-flame b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-cooked?

"Larry King plans one-man comedy tour." In this case, "one man" also describes the audience.

You know what I'd like to see Owen Wilson explain: his reasoning for accepting 80% of his movie roles.

"Homeless voice-over actor Ted Williams reportedly lands reality show deal." Rats. I was really hoping he'd do the sitcom where he's constantly getting mistaken for the frozen head baseball player.

I don't get the royal wedding thinking here. Tacky trashy Beckhams receive wedding invite, yet ex-royal Sarah Ferguson does not?

What Larry King will discover on his One Many Comedy Tour is the sound of one hand clapping.

Californian, it really does make sense. Beckham and Prince William worked together on the UK bid for the World Cup. I think they do charity work together too.

Sarah Ferguson, well, she tried to sell access to the royal family. Plus, Prince Philip has really never forgin her for the toe sucking incident.

Honestly, everyone makes a big deal about Sarah not being invited. While the princes are close to the Princesses that does not mean they are close to Sarah. She was never really considered likely to go. Nor did she really expect an invite. It is all manufactured much ado over nothing (quelle surprise).

Don’t get me wrong I love the fact that Ted Williams is using his Gift. I think the better story is that we all have Gifts from God and when we utilize them they will make room for us just like the Guy with the Golden Voice.

Alex Pettyfer lost one of the most beautiful girls to hit Hollywood, his career, and all for a movie nobody cares to pay for... I AM NUMBER FOUR - When men such as Alex Pettyfer become divas, they must be set to be examples, even if they are an example of failure. Failure in Hollywood isn't rare, but he was dating Glee actress, Dianna Agron, Nancy Drew herself. Did Pettyfer forget to meet with his therapist? Was Alex off his medication? Dianna Agron isn't one of Charlie Sheen's adult actresses, Pettyfer blew his chances at dating America's version of Cleopatra. Roman Caesars bow down to Agron - Whatever happened to powerful actors who could be dysfunctional like Marlon Brandon, Richard Burton, and Sir Lawrence Olivier? Where have the great men in Hollywood gone? Now Agron is going to end up with some flake like Justin Timberlake. He has ruined every celebrity he has dated in a dress. Now movie fans have pretty boys like Collin Farrell the diva male who has been pouting ever since he failed at trying to carry off the greatest military general of all history, Alexander the Great. Please, you couldn't act as Alexander the Great's blacksmith. You couldn't play Napoleon's door man with all the booze you drink before hitting the set. What do these actors insist on forgetting that acting is a career, a job, a path towards a greater goal?

Scarlett Johansson has the star quality it takes to be a terrific star on a worldwide stage. Her talent, powerful skills, appearance, figure, Johansson needs Hollywood. Maybe Broadway or the London stage; I hope Scarlett Johansson doesn't end up like Claire Danes, Jennifer Aniston, or Sarah Jessica Parker.
