Charlie Sheen responds to 'Two and a Half Men' firing by waving machete; Gwyneth Paltrow pursuing record deal

Charlie Sheen reacts to being fired from "Two and a Half Men" by waving machete from the top of a tall building and invoking the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. Well, that and his lawyer threatens to sue Warner Bros. and "Two and Half Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre; Lorre, meanwhile, has hired his own attorney in preparation for the legal battle. (TMZ; The Hollywood Reporter) In case anyone still cares, here's a portion of that Lindsay Lohan surveillance video footage we mentioned yesterday. Please contain your excitement. Gwyneth Paltrow, who returns to "Glee" tonight, is in talks to get her own record deal. We all saw this coming, didn't we? (The Guardian) More morning mix -- including news of a renowned filmmaker allegedly hit with a tax lien and a "True Blood" star who is expecting twins -- after the jump....

Gwyneth Paltrow, Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore to perform at the Oscars

Gwyneth Paltrow, at the mic again on Oscar night. (Screen Gems) Because singing at the Country Music Association Awards wasn't enough, Gwyneth Paltrow will be back for more at this year's Oscars. The Academy announced that Paltrow will be among the performers bringing to life this year's nominees for best song during the Feb. 27 ceremony. Paltrow will croon "Coming Home" from her twangy melodrama "Country Strong." Also taking the stage: Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore, doing "I See the Light" from Disney's "Tangled"; A.R. Rahman and Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine (awesome) with "If I Rise" from "127 Hours"; and Oscar perennial Randy Newman, singing "We Belong Together" from "Toy Story 3." (Hopefully he'll follow that up with a spontaneous medley of "Short People" and "I Love L.A.")

But don't think you've gotten rid of Gwyneth Paltrow that easily. Entertainment Weekly confirmed over the weekend that Paltrow will definitely return to "Glee" -- you know, that little show with all the singing that featured a spunky Paltrow dancing with an umbrella back in November. Show creator Ryan Murphy told EW that Paltrow will reprise the part of teacher Holly Holliday for two episodes, and also will have a fling with Matthew Morrison's Will Schuester. This is good news since Paltrow's "Glee" episode has been the highlight of this season so far (and yes, I am including "Britney/Brittany"). She begins shooting the episodes this month, presumably after she hosts "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. That wasn't the only reason Paltrow's name surfaced over the weekend;...
