Jimmy Buffett has been released from Sydney's St. Vincent's Hospital after falling off the stage at the end of a show Wednesday night and is "doing well," according to an update posted on margaritaville.com. He still needs a few days to recuperate, however, and has canceled a Saturday show in New Zealand.
While Buffett has checked out of a hospital, director Peter Jackson has checked in. He was admitted earlier today to a Wellington, New Zealand, hospital for surgery to fix a perforated stomach ulcer. This will further delay filming of The Hobbit, which was set to start shooting in mid-February but will now have to wait until Jackson is fully recovered from the operation.
Casting for Snow White and the Huntsman is making news again.

It's potentially shaping up to be pure A-List
Leave it to Natalie Portman to wear only the most environmentally friendly engagement ring. Fiancé Benjamin Millepied collaborated with jewelry-designer-to-the-stars Jamie Wolf to create a ring that spoke "to things that are important to Natalie." Hence, according to InStyle, the center stone is an antique (round, old-mine-cut diamond), the pave diamonds are certified as conflict-free (meaning no one was hurt or treated unfairly in the mining of the diamonds), and the platinum is recycled metal.
Vegas has Green Bay as 2.5-point favorites over Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl, and has installed The Social Network as the Best Picture favorite at 2-to-3, followed by The King's Speech at 5-to-2. Portman is the favorite for Best Actress, and Colin Firth for Best Actor.
