Perhaps to counter rumors she had been shopping for a $500K media deal to ditch Hef, Crystal Harris talked to Ryan Seacrest and his radio audience yesterday, explaining "It was all just happening too fast for me."
Not surprisingly, Lifetime has canceled its two-hour "Marrying Hef" special. That said, they've been filming the couple for months, so perhaps a "Ditching Hef" special is on the horizon?
Building on his comical tweet about revised weekend plans, Hugh Hefner has decided to slap a giant red "Runaway Bride" sticker on July issue of Playboy, already printed and heading to newstands with "Mrs. Crystal Hefner" on the cover.
We've never really seen Robin Williams as an advocate for product placement, but we're rethinking that. Williams named his daughter Zelda (born in 1989) after the video game princess, and now the two costar in a new ad for Nintendo 3DS's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3-D game.
The meat dress Lady Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Music Video Awards will be on displayat The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame starting today. The installment is part of the Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power exhibit. And no need to worry about the smell — the dress has dried out like beef jerky, with curators' paint adding the "fresh" bright-red sheen.
Unfazed by blowback about her repeating Angelina Jolie's "homewrecker" ways, Jennifer Aniston and beau Justin Theroux have taken the next step and are living together at her L.A. pad. Posted 06.16.11 by reelz
Online rumors have surrounded The Dark Knight Rises well before the sequel to The Dark Knight had a title, a release date, and even before Christopher Nolan announced his return to the director's chair. perhaps its Nolan's penchant for secrecy or the mania derived from the success of the two previous installments, but online speculation refuses to cease.
With production starting in May, Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway have already been announced as joining the cast as Bane and Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman) in the sequel, which should have helped put an end to the endless speculation. Instead, it only spurred it on. To help, we've again tried to uncover the truth and rumors about The Dark Knight Rises.
More "Batman 3" Truth vs. Fiction >> Posted 02.10.11 by Ryan
Director Christopher Nolan will reportedly start production next March on the highly anticipated Batman 3, and actors are lining up to participate. Robin Williams told Empire Magazine that he wanted to play The Riddler.
Why does Robin Williams want a stint in Arkham? >> Posted 06.30.10 by Ryan
I would do Batman in a second, playing anyone. I’d play The Riddler in the next one, although it would be hard to top Heath [Ledger] as the villain and I’m a little hairy for tights. I’m using this article as an ad. Chris, call me, I’ll do anything. I could be a great character — or some weird little man in the background in Arkham Asylum.
Every now and then there's a casting choice that seems predestined, a true chicken/egg situation. A role it's impossible to believe wasn't written with a particular actor in mind. Or a case where it seems cosmic forces must have been at play, birthing the perfect star for a role just waiting to make the jump from the page to the big screen.
We certainly had that reaction when we saw the first Alice in Wonderland poster. In the following video feature, our Mighty Movie Geek takes a look at Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, along with five other stars and the roles they were born to play. We call it the Deppage Factor. Posted 03.04.10 by reelz
Okay, we all thought from the beginning that Martin Lawrence waddling around in a fat suit in Big Momma's House was a cheap, inferior rip-off of Robin Williams and his antics in Mrs. Doubtfire. And we know that lately (and always?) Hollywood has been cranking out sequel after remake after sequel, completely shirking any whiff of originality. But we probably have to give the studios some credit: at least they're being blatantly transparent about it.
Cinema Blend reports that 20th Century Fox made an announcement that not only will there be a Big Momma's House 3, but the studio is hiring the very same screenwriter who penned Mrs. Doubtfire! Wow, and we thought they were at least trying to act like the whole thing wasn't a rip-off.
Yes it's true: Randi Mayem Singer will give us the third installment of latex-laced mediocrity. No word yet on a director or any cast members, although it would be hard to imagine they'd make it without Lawrence. We'll let you know when we hear more. That is, if you actually want to know more.

When Night at the Museum debuted in late 2006, no one -- including the star, Ben Stiller -- thought it would turn into a colossal hit, but $250M-plus later it has proven that family comedies can stand up to heavyweight genre pictures. With numbers like that, it's no surprise that 20th Century Fox decided to go back for another.
In Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, Stiller returns as Larry Daley, now an inventor and entrepreneur, rather than a night security guard. However, when Daley's friends are moved into federal storage at the Smithsonian Institution, he is called on to help out against the second coming of Pharaoh Kahmunrah (Hank Azaria), who plans to take over the world.
All of Daley's friends -- Robin Williams and Owen Wilson reprise their roles as Teddy Roosevelt and Jedediah, respectively, among others -- are back, and we get to meet many new faces, as well. This time around, Stiller's character has a love interest in the form of Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart. So, how does one go about introducing a romance between a man and, well, a mannequin? Stiller told Entertainment Weekly:
We constantly wrestled with "How much of a relationship with a wax dummy is he going to have?" We had to figure out how to resolve that.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian also stars Christopher Guest as Ivan the Terrible, Steve Coogan as Octavius, and features Dick Van Dyke as Cecil Fredericks. Posted 05.11.09 by BrentJS
Ben Stiller returns as Larry Daley, the bumbling-but-loveable night security guard at the Museum of Natural History from Night at the Museum. This time around, Daley has given up his night job to become an inventor. But, when his diminutive friends are shipped off to the Smithsonian Institution, it's Daley to the rescue!
Shawn Levy produces and directs Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, with Owen Wilson and Robin Williams reprising their roles as Jedediah and Teddy Roosevelt, respectively. The film also stars Amy Adams as Amelia Earhart, Hank Azaria as Pharaoh Kahmunrah, and Christopher Guest as Ivan the Terrible.
Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian is the first movie ever granted permission to film in the Smithsonian complex. In addition to the all-star cast, there are famous paintings, statues, historical figures, and pop-culture icons galore -- from August Rodin's The Thinker to Star Wars' Darth Vader.

Well, at least it will keep him away from the movies for a few. Once-funny man Robin Williams has announced that he'll be gracing the Great White Way with his no-longer-funny presence. He'll be bringing his one-man show "Weapons of Self-Destruction" to Broadway from April 28 to May 3.
While Williams has been on a 80-city tour with the show, that, unfortunately, doesn't mean he doesn't have any movies coming out. He'll still be terrorizing the multiplex this year in Old Dogs and the Night at the Museum sequel. Oh well, at least there's no Patch Adams sequel in the works. Posted 03.02.09 by reelz
