    Stewart Does Letterman, Likely Can't Do Girl with Dragon Tattoo

    It looks like Twilight star Kristen Stewart is too busy to even chase after The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. She'd love to do the role, but hasn't talked to David Fincher about it and may not be able to squeeze it into her crazy schedule anyway. (Meanwhile, in The New Yorker, Nora Ephron channels Li...

    Cruise vs. Cruise, Kimmel Rides Zipline, Knight and Day B.O.

    Compare the real Tom Cruise doing stunts on Jimmy Kimmel -- and the fake Tom Cruise below. @TomCruise is all over Twitter with his blog posts. Not missing a trick. (Again, I think he should pull back on trying to get people's attention.)

    Trailer Watch: Harry Potter Finale Looks Very Lord of the Rings

    James Franco: Everywhere

    Actor James Franco seems to be everywhere these days. He's starring in serious dramas (Howl) and goofy comedies (Date Night), directing a Saturday Night Live doc and a Cannes short, making art (he has an upcoming New York solo show of photos, drawings and videos) and falling asleep during class at Columbia's MFA program in creative writing (he's prepping a children's book).
