Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson is heading to TV after signing up as a coach on the U.K. version of The Voice. The rocker is reportedly set to replace The Script's Danny O'Donoghue, who quit the show after two series.
He completes the talent show's line-up, which consists of will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Kylie Minogue, who will be sitting in ex-mentor Jessie J's revolving red chair.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "(Ricky is) outspoken, cares passionately about the music scene and basically has some balls."
The show will return to screens in Britain next year (14).
Eccentric pop star Grace Jones is writing a memoir. The Pull Up to the Bumper singer has signed a deal with Gallery Books to pen an autobiography, which is scheduled for release next year (14).
In the untitled tome, the 65 year old plans to open up about her upbringing in Jamaica, her modelling career, her party days at New York's fabled Studio 54 and her acting experiences opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Bond star Sir Roger Moore.
Actor Tommy Lee Jones put in such a realistic portrayal of Douglas Macarthur it was like having the famed war general on set, according to his co-star Matthew Fox. The Men in Black star takes the role of the iconic World War II U.S. Army officer in hard-hitting military drama Emperor, and Fox, who plays a fellow leader in the film, was stunned at his colleague's performance.
Fox has revealed most of the shoot had been completed before Jones arrived to film his scenes, and his acting was so lifelike the cast and crew were convinced the real general was on set.
Fox tells U.K. morning show Daybreak, "I felt that there was no other actor I could imagine playing MacArthur. MacArthur is such an iconic military figure for Americans in the 20th Century and so I really felt that he was the perfect guy to play him and was going to bring a gravitas to that role. I really enjoyed it.
"He came at the end of the shoot so we had shot a huge portion of the film, and it was really like MacArthur was showing up in our world."
General MacArthur was an instrumental figure in the U.S.' military campaign in the Pacific and oversaw the surrender of Japan in 1945, which marked the end of World War II.
Actress Rashida Jones is reportedly dating funnyman Colin Jost. The pair was photographed taking a stroll in New York earlier this month (Sep13) and it has now been reported that The Social Network star Jones is romantically linked to the Saturday Night Live writer.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "She's known him for a while... Rashida is into him... She likes that he's funny."
Courteney Cox and David Arquette are selling off their marital home, four months after finalising their divorce. The Scream co-stars purchased the lavish Beverly Hills mansion in 2004, but the actress moved out of the property shortly after the couple separated in 2010, leaving Arquette to live in the five-bedroom pad, which was designed by famed architect A. Quincy Jones.
A judge made their split official in May (13) and now the exes are hoping to offload the estate by listing it on the market for $20 million (£13.3 million), reports TMZ.com.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have called off their engagement. The former Hannah Montana star's representative has confirmed the sad news to E!, explaining the couple has ended its almost four-year relationship.
Hemsworth and Cyrus met and fell in love while filming The Last Song in 2009. After briefly splitting in 2010, the couple reunited and became engaged in 2012.
Last week (ends15Sep13), rumours resurfaced about a romance between Hemsworth and January Jones, but his representative denied the reports calling them "tabloid fiction."
On Saturday (14Sep13), Cyrus stopped following The Hunger Games star on Twitter.com.
The couple was last spotted together last month (Aug13) at the Los Angeles premiere of Hemsworth's movie Paranoia.
It may be Amy Poehler's birthday today, but it's Parks and Recreation fans who are getting a gift - specifically, three new clips from the Sept. 26 season premiere. The show is continuing its tradition of starting the season away from Pawnee, by having the Parks Department travel all the way to London. And nobody is happier than Leslie Knope (Poehler), who has a whole day of rom-com themed bus tours planned. Ron (Nick Offerman), however, is less impressed, and his behavior proves that you can take the man out of America, but you can't take America out of the man.
Meanwhile, Ben (Adam Scott) and Andy (Chris Pratt) are having a much better go of things when they meet with Lord Covington (Peter Serafinowicz) to discuss their music charity. The best part of the clip, however, isn't Andy's terrible British accent, but rather the casual acknowledgement of his dramatic weight loss at the very beginning. (Apparently, he just stopped drinking beer and dropped 50 pounds.) Pratt went through a major physical transformation to play Star Lord in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film, and creator Mike Shur said that although the show would mention the dramatic difference in the character's appearance, "I don't think beyond a little joke about it that we'll end up doing anything significant. We're not going to suddenly say that Andy became a fitness nut because that doesn't ring true."
Across the pond, however, things aren't looking so good for Tom (Aziz Ansari). After his mysterious investor - who is definitely not Diddy - decided to open his own clothing rental business across the street, Rent-A-Swag is in trouble. Luckily, Tom's best friend Jean Ralphio (Ben Schwartz) is there to offer some of his sagest wisdom: "When life gives you lemons, you sell your grandmother's jewlery and you go clubbin'." Oh, Jean Ralphio. How did we ever live before you were there to guide us?

UPDATE: Both Cyrus and Hemswort's reps have confirmed the news exclusively to People: the engagement has officially been called off.
EARLIER: We couldn't usher in the autumn without the traditional breaking up of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. The time-honored tradition has become sacrosanct practice in contemporary society, alike in spirit and accountability to the changing of the leaves' colors or the shifting of the nature of television from esteemed drama to subpar comedy. Once again, the rumors are afoot: E! reports from an unnamed source that Cyrus and Hemsworth are splitting after four years (on and off) together.
According to the reports, it was 20-year-old Cyrus who terminated the relationship, having determined Hemsworth, 23, to be guilty of infidelity. Some yet unsubstantiated details point to Hemsworth's involvement in a concord of sexting with Mad Men's own January Jones. Let this be a reminder: Sexting is cheating. The lamest kind of cheating, but cheating nonetheless.
Although the news is only budding now, reports add that Hemsworth was conspicuously absent during Cyrus' performance of "We Can't Stop" at the 2013 Video Music Awards. Granted, this could simply be chalked up to the fact that he had a notion of what she was going to do onstage and decided, instead, to be anywhere else. Oh yeah, and Cyrus stopped following Hemsworth on Twitter over the weekend — which is, like, huge.

Harrison Ford is set to receive the Hollywood Career Award at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards. The Indiana Jones star will be feted on 21 October (13) at the Beverly Hilton in California, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Hollywood Film Awards founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu, says, "It is a great honour to be able to celebrate Harrison Ford's extraordinary talent and remarkable career."
Previous recipients have included Kirk Douglas, John Travolta, Robin Williams, Dustin Hoffman and Sylvester Stallone.
British actor Vinnie Jones narrowly escaped serious injury on the set of his 2001 thriller Swordfish after an action sequence went horribly wrong and left a stuntman fighting for his life in hospital. The former soccer player appeared opposite John Travolta, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry in the film, and he was happy to do all of his own stunts on set.
However, Travolta unwittingly saved him from a frightening accident when he ordered Jones not to carry out a dangerous wire manoeuvre before a stuntman tried it. The stuntman sustained horrific injuries when the scene, involving a daring escape from a coach, went wrong, and Jones was thankful for his lucky escape.
In his new autobiography, It's Been Emotional, he writes, "So we're on set and they've rigged me up on the wire... ready for a run-through... Suddenly JT (Travolta) comes in and says, 'Vin, have you rehearsed any of this?... No, no, no... I wanna see the stuntman do this before Vinnie'... So my stuntman comes in. They shout 'Action!'... He flies straight through the back of the coach, 70 foot up... He smashed through.. the back window and plunges to the concrete floor... We watch him hit the f**king concrete. We all honestly thought he was dead. Travolta comes running out screaming... It could have been me. I'd been seconds away from doing the stunt. Only JT's intervention stopped me. The stuntman broke his spine. It really smashed him up."
