What's scarier than Scary Movie? Ice cold! Oh wait, no, that's not it. How about Lindsay Lohan landing a role in the fright flick's latest sequel?
According to E! Online, the actress has agreed to be in Scary Movie 5, the same movie Charlie Sheen will make an appearance in (despite the small detail that he was killed off in the previous edition). Her rep says "as of right now" no one has signed on the dotted line, but all parties are in. Except for Scary star Anna Faris who chose to opt out of the film at four.
No word on the role the actress is expected to play, but tune in on Jan. 11, 2013 when the horror comedy hits theaters. And hey, if Lohan's movie roles are anything like her slew of car accidents — viewers will be lining up to watch. Scary, indeed.

It seems as though Matthew Perry is television's little engine that could. He, along with fellow actors Tyler James Williams, Julie White, John Cho, Laura Benanti, Suzy Nakamura, Brett Gelman, and producers Todd Holland, Karey Nixon, Scott Silveri, and Jon Pollack took to the Television Critics Association stage to discuss their NBC fall comedy, Go On, at the Beverly Hilton on Tuesday. Perry, who recently completed work on the failed ABC sitcom Mr. Sunshine, was quick to self-depricatingly sing the praises of his new employer.
"First of all, this is the room where people like Mr. Sunshine?" Perry joked, when a reporter praised the departed show. "I wish I had just stayed in this room that whole year! The bad news for me, creatively, is that Scott created a TV show for me better than the one that I created for myself. This show is just better. Scott is a better writer that I am." Silveri modestly joked back, saying "I also happen to be a better actor than he is." Perry went on to explain his desire to work on the show, saying that he "gravitate[s] towards broken characters who try to be better people. The set-up is better here. This guy has had some very dramatic things happen to him, and he's in denial when you meet him. It's a built-in excuse to be really funny." On the show, Perry plays a popular sportscaster who attends group therapy as a way to cope with a devastating personal loss. A reporter noted that group therapy is typically very fluid, but Silveri insists that this is a good thing. "It will become a natural thing for him to be attending," Silveri said. "In the research that I've done, there's a fair bit of continuity for years in these groups. People don't heal all that quickly. There's also an easy way to cycle new people in, and cycle people out as people misbehave." The show will also feature characters from Perry's workplace, which Silveri insists is another positive asset for the show. "There is going to be some cross-pollination, because these are all characters that are important to Matthew's character," Silveri said. "We love the work characters, we love the support group characters. Each being strong helps the other." White, who plays a support-group member, was the first to be cast. Her character was pitched as a widow grieving the death of her husband, but she soon received a phone call from Silveri asking if she minded playing the role gay. "The idea of losing your spouse, or your partner, is the same kind of grief for everyone," White said. "In that way, Matthew and I, our characters are on the same kind of journey." "It was important for us to represent all kinds of people in the show," Silveri added. Benanti plays the sexy leader of the support group, and though her character has great chemistry with Perry's, she noted that viewers shouldn't necessarily expect a romance (at least not right away). "I think that my character probably has relatively straight ethics," she said. "You can tell from the pilot that [she and Perry] have a nice chemistry, and him telling me about his loss is something that I'm very empathic towards... maybe more so than a traditional therapist might be." But that doesn't mean that they'll get together. "I flirt with him just off-screen," Benanti joked. Gelman's wacky character, who is seen in the pilot going to lamaze classes, only goes to group because he wants to fit in... somewhere. Anywhere. "He's not a sociopath," Gelman insisted. "But he's not someone who is used to being around people very often. He wants friends, but he doesn't know the proper way to go about acquiring them. It gets pretty awkward. He meets the number one cool friend, which is Matthew. ... he has strange intentions at times. But he's harmless." Silveri — who was also a producer on Friends — says he still enjoys working with Perry, whose talents have only improved over the years. "Having worked with him for 8 years, I was well aware of the full spectrum of his talents," he said. "But I still get surprised." What's not surprising, however, is that Perry has maintained his Chandler Bing brand of self-deprecating sarcasm. When asked about his favorite role, the actor replied: "It's either this, or The Whole Ten Yards." Yikes.

When I spoke to Wilfred star Jason Gann last month, he told me that he likes to subscribe to the belief that the lovable-ish pup is some sort of magical creature — not a figment of Ryan's (Elijah Wood) depressed, pot-filled imagination. Well, director Randall Einhorn majorly disagrees. Not only that, but he shot each episode this season from the perspective of Wilfred being totally imaginary. (I know, right?) And to blow your mind even more — Gann is a cat person!
Hollywood.com sat down with the cast and crew at the Hilton Bayfront on Thursday, where they discussed a generally darker season that will lead up to "a big surprise." Producer David Zuckerman says he's filled this current season with clues as to what this surprise may be, but fans in general haven't seemed to locate them yet. Let's just hope it's not what Einhorn admits is a "good theory" — that Wilfred is Ryan's guide to the afterlife.
Heavy stuff, right? But the Wilfred session wasn't all gloom and doom. Wood and Gann both mentioned an upcoming episode that features "a lot of cats" that had both of them in stitches, as well as Wilfred's upcoming stint in "doggie dancing." "The cat episode is damn funny," Wood says.
Ryan's sister, Kristen (Dorian Brown) returns from India during tonight's episode, and even though her "world is ending" — she's jobless, homeless, and spouseless — there is a silver lining from a comedy perspective. Since Kristen is now a mother, the show needed to cast a baby — but everyone knows that babies are terrible to work with, so the Wilfred team enlisted one of those fake babies you carry around with you in high school health class instead. During downtime on set, both Wood and Gann enjoyed messing with the fake little bugger. "My instinct was to beat the fake baby up," he says.

We probably didn't need a lawsuit to imply that working for Courtney Love isn't a great gig, but one former assistant is suing for essentially the overall awfulness of her onetime employer.
According to E! Online, the plaintiff, Jessica Labrie, Love "acted with an improper and evil motive amounting to malice or despicable conduct."
And that's just the beginning. Among other allegations, Labrie — who worked for a year as Love's administrative assistant and "forensic research aide" — says that her former boss frequently forced her to work overtime with paying overtime; asked her to hire a computer hacker (among other gray-area activities mentioned in the suit); and failed to make good on several promises, including paying for Labrie's college tuition and securing her a job on a Nirvana biopic.
Labrie resigned on June 27, 2011, at which time, she claims, Love owed her more than $2,000. She is seeking unspecified damages for, well, everything that was just mentioned.
"The most controversial woman in the history of rock" (per Rolling Stone magazine) had a pretty solid lawsuit-less streak going: She hadn't been sued since a January 2011 Twitter fiasco, which recently sucked in her 19-year-old daughter with the late Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean.

While we still have to wait until Sept. 30 to find out the fate of Carrie Mathison on Homeland, we know what's in store for Claire Danes: the Golden Globe-winning star is going to be a mom. People has confirmed that the 33-year-old actress and her husband, 37-year-old actor Hugh Dancy, are expecting their first child together. The couple, who wed back in 2009, worked together on the 2007 drama Evening. Though there's no official from Showtime, a spokesman told the mag that Danes' pregnancy is not expected to have an impact on the filming of Season 2. (Either that, or Nicholas Brody is about to get some intense news.) While Danes (also known for her additional work on My So-Called Life, Romeo + Juliet, The Family Stone, and Temple Grandin) will be busy with Homeland and impending motherhood, her hubby, the UK-born Dancy (who has appeared in Black Hawk Down, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Adam, and Our Idiot Brother) will be preparing for fatherhood while working on his own series, the upcoming thriller Hannibal.

Bootsy Bellows opened recently and has already hit the headlines - Paris Hilton was leaving the venue when she was involved in a scuffle with the paparazzi last week (ends29Jun12) and Lindsay Lohan celebrated her 26th birthday there on Saturday night (30Jun12).
And now Arquette has revealed the inspiration behind the club's odd name.
During a pre-taped interview with U.S. reality TV star-turned-chat show host Bethenny Frankel, Arquette says, "It’s named after my mother... She did, like,... nude modelling.
"I was going through this book, because I’ve always loved pin-up models and all that kind of thing... and I come across a picture of my mom.
"And then (there's) another one (picture) and she’s, like, having a catfight with some other lady in lingerie. And she was alive at the time, and I’m like 18, and I go, 'Mom, look what I found'. And she goes, 'Oh David, you know we were just pretending. We weren’t really fighting.'
"(I'm like), 'But you’re naked!' She was like, 'The human body is beautiful'.
"So we opened this club, called Bootsy Bellows, and it’s singing and dancing and puppets. Because I’m a weirdo and I love puppets."
Lindsay Lohan celebrated her 26th birthday early at the weekend (30Jun12) at actor David Arquette's new club Boosty Bellows in West Hollywood, where old pal Paris Hilton clashed with the paparazzi last week (ends29Jun12). Lohan turns a year older on Monday (02Jul12).
It might have looked like a scene out of the male stripper film, Magic Mike, but unfortunately the 100 firefighters who showed up at the former home of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Lisa Vanderpump were actual firefighters.
The 17,000-square-foot pink palace — which was featured on the Bravo show and sold in September of last year for a mere $19 million — was seen on Friday with smoke billowing from the roof. Firefighters battled for an hour and a half in the exclusive Mulholland Estates neighborhood in the hopes of extinguishing the flames that ultimately sent one firefighter to the hospital with injuries.
Neighbor and Housewives costar, Adrienne Maloof — who lives across the street — confirmed there were no casualties, tweeting, "Thank you all for your concern! It has been a crazy couple of hours. Luckily everyone is safe!" Vanderpump also took to her Twitter page, saying, "Yes sadly I heard...a lot of wonderful memories, including my daughters wedding...I am glad to have shared it with you."
Someone else who is probably sad to hear the news is Vanderpump's ex-houseguest Cedric Martinez, who spent many years living in the palatial estate rent-free.

Remember the good old days, when Expendables 2 star Chuck Norris was just a meme? Well, recent years have seen the Walker, Texas Ranger star begin to unleash a whole new brand of Norrisisms unto the world. Norris has taken it upon himself to decry the efforts of James Turley, Ernst & Young CEO and board member of the Boy Scouts of America, to open the latter organization to the welcoming of homosexual children and scout leaders. Earlier in June, Turley released a statement vocalizing his intentions to fight the BSA policy of excluding gay members. Norris published an article on Ammoland.com that not only strongly implies a negative perspective on the homosexual community, but also expresses several conspiracy theories regarding the "agendas" of Turley and President Barack Obama.
Norris illustrates Turley's connections to Obama (having been invited to the first family's state dinner in March, having been nominated to the president's Export Council in 2010) as reason to suspect that he is acting on behalf of the "pro-gay Obama administration," probing the reader wit the recurring hypothetical question, "Is it a coincidence?" In fact, it is not a coincidence: the two men have opted for a personal and professional relationship quite certainly because of their aligned values, the belief in human equality being not the least important of the lot. But Norris instead suggests that "perks and favors" are what motivated Turley to express his opposition to the standing Boy Scouts policy. Norris even mentions Vladimir Putin as being potentially in the mix.
One of the most outlandish portions of the article is the following paragraph:"Is it a coincidence, too, that on March 3, 2009, Obama became the honorary president of the BSA — a position proudly and publicly held and highlighted by all presidents since President William Howard Taft in 1910 — but that Obama’s induction was held behind closed doors in the Oval Office with seven or so Boy Scouts present and absolutely nothing noted in the White House daily briefing or any other official communication?"It seems over the top to assume that Norris is actually insinuating that something sordid went on between Obama and the young boys in question, but it certainly reads that way.
Norris claims that the BSA's "century-old" standing policy simply advocates a "pro-traditional family stance," but it is Turley who is working on behalf of the idea of family. What the phrase "traditional family" should indicate is love, trust, and acceptance, not discrimination and alienation, as is what Norris is really fighting for. There is no concrete threat posed by the welcoming of homosexuals into the Boy Scouts of America. The only foreseeable results include allowing today's youth to learn more actively that gay children are no different than heterosexual children, and for those very gay children to experience the same joys and character-building exercises that the Boy Scouts of America has afforded to children for generations.

Black and white is clearly not his color.
The normally sexy Joe Manganiello — who is known to female fans for his shirtless scenes on HBO's True Blood — can be seen wearing a shirt and not-so-good hair in his high school yearbook picture. But a lot has changed in almost 20 years.
The 35-year-old actor is set to co-star alongside Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum in the highly anticipated film, Magic Mike, where he will play a male stripper named, Big D*ck Richie. We're thinking with a name like that, no one will be looking at his hairstyle.
Magic Mike hits theaters on June 29.
