Actress Molly Sims is expecting her second child with her producer husband Scott Stuber.
The Yes, Man star announced the news in a post on her blog on Tuesday (30Sep14). She writes, "I can't even (begin) to explain just how excited we are for a new baby. We are so, so, so blessed as a family, and I'm speechless at the fact that we have the opportunity to bring a second bundle of joy into the world, I absolutely cannot wait to see what life will be like as a mother to a toddler and a newborn, and I really can't wait to see Brooks as an older brother to Baby #2! (sic)"
The couple is already parents to two-year-old son Brooks and in early September (14), Sims revealed she was keen to expand her family, telling Us Weekly magazine, "We are trying (for a baby), which is fun. We waited to enjoy Brooks at first. But I'm ready (for another baby)!"
They have been married since 2011.
Actress Sophia Bush has contacted police after receiving a series of disturbing online messages.
The former One Tree Hill star has been targeted by an anonymous online user for months, so she has gone to the cops with more than 500 screen grabs of hateful messages sent to both her and her fans. Bush published a warning to her followers on Instagram.com to make them aware of the rogue account which features a name very similar to the star's own online handle.
She writes, "For the past few months I have been harassed to the point of sheer horror by an online stalker. This person has taken to harassing and bullying many of my followers as well. And tonight I finally said f**k this s**t... The photograph is a tiny sampling of over 500 screenshots I've taken in the last three months. And I'm sharing it here to make something very clear. This kind of behavior does. Not. Fly. You do not have permission to hide. Not anymore: This has gotten beyond out of hand. Obsessive. Violent. And legally punishable. "And law enforcement says 'we're on it,' and 'don't acknowledge this person,' but when this person, this vitriolic perverse monster is targeting all of you?... Nope. No silence. As the evidence of staking (sic) and harassment mounts, so does my anger. Because this is grotesque."
She also implored the anonymous user to get help, adding, "Because my God I feel so sorry for you. But my sorrow in the face of your pain is no match for my anger at the pain you are causing others... All the time you're taking to verbally harass us, threaten physical assault, and terrorize strangers? Please start spending it in therapy and learn to love yourself. You deserve it. And because none of us deserve one more moment of your bullying bulls**t."
Dance music DJ Baauer has cancelled his U.S. tour less than a week before the first show. The Harlem Shake hitmaker was due to kick off a joint trek with German DJ Boys Noize in San Diego, California on Thursday (02Oct14), but both acts have now axed the dates so they can record new music.
Baauer, real name Harry Rodrigues, tells fans, "I'm so sorry to do this, but Alex (Boys Noize) and I have to pull this tour. There's a bunch of reasons why this needed to happen, but mostly, Alex and I have to get back into the studio and finish our projects... I never ever cancel shows, so pulling this whole tour is devastating. But what it means is more music out to you guys sooner. I hope you understand and I love you."
Foxygen's accident-prone lead singer Sam France broke his hand during a gig in August (14). France smashed into a drum kit while performing at the Fonda Theatre in the cult rock group's native Los Angeles, but managed to finish the set.
However, a visit to the doctor the next day revealed he had a shattered scaphoid bone in his hand.
Speaking to British magazine Mojo about the incident, French says, "That was a weird but really intense show... But I really like intense shows... It'll be more restrained (in future)."
The accident happened a year after he fell off stage and broke his leg in July, 2013.
After his fall last year (13), French underwent surgery and physical therapy to get back on his feet.
A recording of the Billy Elliot stage show has beaten Denzel Washington's new thriller The Equalizer to the top spot in the U.K box office chart. The beloved British theatre production, based on the 2000 film starring Jamie Bell, stormed U.K. cinemas this weekend (26-28Sep14), bringing in $3 million (£1.9 million).
The feat put the filmed stage show narrowly ahead of Washington's Hollywood blockbuster which took just $22,323 (£13,952) less.
After two weekends at the top, fantasy-comedy The Boxtrolls moved down to number three with sales of $1.8 million (£1.1 million).
British comedy What We Did On Our Holiday entered the chart at number four, netting $1.3 million ($810,000), while Liam Neeson's A Walk Among Tombstones dropped from second to fifth place with sales of $960,000 ($600,000).
Monty Python's 1979 comedy Life Of Brian is to be screened in a U.K. town 35 years after local officials banned the movie over its "blasphemous" content. City officials in Truro, in Cornwall, south west England, took offence to the religious themes in the film, in which a man named Brian is born on the same day as Jesus Christ and mistaken for the Messiah.
They banned the movie along with a number of other local authorities in Britain, but the order has since been lifted due to a change in the law and Life of Brian is now to receive its premiere in Truro at a charity screening in December (14).
The film will be screened at Truro's Plaza cinema and the event will raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Jeff Goldblum has stripped off for a bizarre new advert in which he is seen wearing nothing but tiny bathing shorts and a 1970s-style wig while sitting in a hot tub. The Jurassic Park actor stars as Terry Quattro, an exaggerated celebrity who uses GE Lighting's new smart light bulbs to make himself look good and be a hit with the ladies.
Goldblum dons a shaggy wig, chunky rings and a silk smoking jacket to promote the smartphone-controlled bulbs in the advert, in which he says, "You can get successful guy lighting at normal guy prices... but don't take my word for it, ask this unremarkable nobody... Have fun looking as good as me America."
The actor also runs through the benefits of mood lighting in one scene in which he is seen playing the piano in a hot tub while wearing small vintage-style swimming shorts.
Chic star Nile Rodgers is working with bandmates from beyond the grave by reworking outtakes from old music to create new tracks. The disco legend has compiled old demos and lost tapes, including two Sister Sledge tracks, and collaborated with DJ duo The Martinez Brothers to create new sounds for the first Chic record since 1992's Chic-Ism.
Rodgers found the experience cathartic as he could reconnect with colleagues who had passed away, including Chic co-founder Bernard Edwards and drummer Tony Thompson, who died in 1996 and 2003 respectively.
He tells Britain's Mojo magazine, "There's stuff I'm emotional about so I don't know if I want them (the songs) to come out... I'm just finishing the songs, and it's allowed me to play with my bandmates who've passed away, so it's cool. It's been hard for me because it's emotional, but I'll probably be trying to sell a million too."
John Malkovich is to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland on Saturday (04Oct14). The double-Oscar nominee is being presented with the prestigious Golden Eye award at the movie event, which ends on Sunday (05Oct14).

British rockers Kasabian are backing a charity raising awareness of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS). The band took to Twitter.com on Tuesday (30Sep14) to throw their support behind The Joe Humphries Memorial Trust and the organisation's drive to break the silence over the little-known heart disease.
The message reads, "We're getting behind @Jhmtorguk's campaign to break the silence on SADS details: SADS Awareness Week 4-11 Oct (sic)".
The condition claimed the life of Irish pop star Stephen Gately in 2009. The Boyzone singer died aged 33 after collapsing at his home on the Spanish island of Majorca.
