Exclusive photos of Degrassi cast members in LA shooting scenes for what’s rumoured to be a movie of the week to air Summer 2009…?!?!?

Word is they’ve booked a boatload of celebrity cameos – Degrassi, a Canadian show, is actually much more popular in the US. Full Story

Also attaching photos of newly nominated Robert Downey Jr, capping off his remarkable comeback year with an appearance at the Globes in January and looking ahead of course to more as RDJ’s The Soloist is slated for release in 2009, said to be yet another tour de force. Full Story

Scott Speedman has buzzed it all off, seen yesterday on the set of a new movie called Funny People. It works on him, his hair is thick enough, but I l prefer it the way it was when I saw him in Cannes in May – suits his personality. Like a major stoner.

Keanu is promoting the upcoming holiday blockbuster The Day the Earth Stood Still and hooked up with the magazine at his favourite book store for the interview, impressing and even seducing the writer so much that he appears to have developed a little man crush which actually reads really cute. Full Story
