Am so not feeling Alanis Morrissette in OK! Magazine gushing about her 20 pound weight loss. Can’t put my finger on it but just isn’t sitting right. Maybe it’s because the styling is for sh-t. Who decided to put her in a long purple dress with those shoes? And those boots with the jeans are all wrong too. Full Story

Oh. Yeah.

They’re saying that 2009 will Taylor Kitsch’s year. God I hope so. It’s taken too long. Those of you who keep ignoring my Friday Night Lights posts will find out soon enough after Wolverine the quiver you have been missing. And, better still, that he’s not likely to go the Robert Pattinson-Los Angeles route. Full Story

Lights? For those of you without DirecTV, January is something to look forward to. New episodes of Friday Night Lights! I can tell you that Tim and Lyla get it on in the first 2 minutes. And how their relationship progresses after that will, in typical FNL fashion, break your bleeding heart. There is a scene where Tim, the misfit, finds himself in a situation so uncomfortable, what he does will crush your soul for hours. Full Story

Those of you who watch Friday Night Lights already know the amazing amazingness of Taylor Kitsch. Those of you don’t… well why not?!???? Come May, you will.

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…?!?!?

There she is – one of our first looks at Rachel McAdams on the set of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. Not exactly loving the hair but that’s how they wore it then, right?

Shenae Grimes returned home to Canada last week for the Gemini Awards and reportedly acted like a massive twat towards the local media, apparently insisting that they were beneath her newly acquired and imagined elevated stature. 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. Our interview with him was right after I broke my arm and I was still wearing my ugly Velcro sling. Full Story
