A Massachusetts-based convenience store is having a hard time holding on to David Hasselhoff. Cumberland Farms is using life-sized cutouts of The Hoff to advertise their iced coffee drinks at 570 of their stores, and so far, around 550 of those Hoffs have been stolen. The company asked people to stop stealing the signs, but added that they hope people who currently are in possession of a stolen Hasselhoff cutout write and let the company know that he is being well cared for.
Katie Holmes will be back on Broadway this fall. The actress will star in the new Theresa Rebeck comedy Dead Accounts. Holmes made her Broadway debut in 2008 in a revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons.
Actress and cookbook writer Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly in negotiations to star in Blood, Bones & Butter. The indie movie will be based on chef Gabrielle Hamilton's 2011 memoir.
Comedy writer Tom Davis passed away on Thursday at the age of 59. Davis was a long-time writing partner of Al Franken, and the pair were the first writers hired for Satuday Night Live back in 1975. During his time on SNL he was a co-creator of the Coneheads and collaborated with Dan Aykroyd on his Julia Child impression.
