    Spout About: Bin Laden Killed; Thor Covers Usher; "Inception" and "Scott Pilgrim" Parodies Continue

    Obviously the big news this morning is the death of Osama Bin Laden. And people are likely still making movie-related jokes that I could round up and recap, such as references to Morgan Spurlock's "Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden" and "The Wizard of Oz" as well as "Armageddon" and "Deep Impact," neither of which were in fact relevant (thank goodness) to what President Obama's long-delayed announcement was about (either way, Bruce Willis gets the job done, right?).

    Must Watch: Lara Logan on 60 Minutes

    I know this is a bit off topic but this is important about how women are treated in this world. Lara Logan went to Egypt to do her job. To broadcast a revolution. She can back a battered and abused women. Female journalists have been assaulted before but this is really the first time a woman stood up and said this is what happened and this is unacceptable. Just know that this is a very hard segment to watch.

    Lee Pace Joins 'The Hobbit' As Elven King Thranduil, Dean O'Gorman Replaces Rob Kazinsky As Fili

    Considering its long, troubled pre-production beset by delays, a change of director, and even health problems for Peter Jackson, we're glad that filming on "The Hobbit" has now commenced and things seem to be running fairly smoothly. With one exception, that is: last weekend, it was announced that British actor Rob Kazinsky had dropped out of the film. Kazinsky had been cast as Fili, one of the 13 dwarves that accompany Bilbo Baggins on his quest, but withdrew due to "health issues," although it's worth noting that Jackson has recast on his films before, replacing Stuart Townsend with Viggo Mortensen on "Lord of the Rings," and Ryan Gosling with Mark Wahlberg on "The Lovely Bones."

    'Breaking Bad' Star Bryan Cranston Latest Addition To Randomly Assembled Cast For 'Rock of Ages'

    Justin Theroux Rewriting Script With Director Adam ShankmanIt's always satisfying when someone finds success later in life, having worked quietly for years, and we're delighted that the latest actor to follow that path is Bryan Cranston. The 55-year-old has credits stretching back 30 years, and achieved relative fame as the father in long-running sitcom "Malcolm in the Middle," but he demonstrated a range far beyond a sitcom dad with his turn as the cancer-riddled, meth-dealing chemistry teacher at the center of AMC's "Breaking Bad," which has seen the veteran win three Emmys on the trot.

    Bin Laden Lives...As a Joke: A Few Brief Clips.

    For many Americans, Osama bin Laden was a shadowy presence on par with Freddy Krueger, a phantom symbol for fear rather than a flesh-and-blood threat. The news of his death at American hands has been met with such high levels of jubilance partly because the words "bin Laden killed" sound so surreal. How do you kill an idea? Well, putting a bullet in the head of the real deal is certainly a good start.
