Did you like CBS’ modern version of Sherlock Holmes, Elementary? I’m devoted to the BBC Sherlock, but I liked Elementary well enough. I didn’t feel the need to watch it every week, but it didn’t linger long on my DVR, either. I did think Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu made a good Holmes/Watson, and it occurred to me, when Natalie Dormer made her entrance as Irene Adler and Elementary took an unexpected leap to the left with how it unwound the Moriarty mystery, that Elementary is the first network drama to respond directly to the pressures being put on network TV by cable. Full Story

Haven’t posted about Mandy Moore in a long, long time. It’s been a career of fits and starts. There was a television pilot a while back. Seemed promising but then when they started to get into it, she wasn’t right for the part and was replaced. Shortly after she landed another pilot called The Advocates but then CBS passed and even though it was being offered around elsewhere, so far no one has picked it up. Full Story

I believe I said on the Tony Awards live-blog that NPH was not truly going to be appreciated for being the renaissance man that he is until he turned 40, with peak appreciation for his awesome, awesome stardom coming when he’s 50. I should start making psychic predictions.  NPH turned 40 on June 15th. Full Story

Johnny Depp was in Russia yesterday with Armie Hammer promoting The Lone Ranger. And look who was at his side for dinner. Holding hands. Not hiding. No running into dumpsters. It is. They are. And this is how Johnny prefers it when he’s in love. He likes it when his women are with him. He’s never been resistant to having his women with him on the carpet. Full Story

Harry and a baby - again! How are we supposed to fight the power of this image? It's been used against us multiple times and always leaves me feeling somewhat manipulated. Cuteness, hotness, parenting instincts, it really hits all the right buttons, and now Harry's back at it. More on that in a second, but first, can we talk again about the 1D movie trailer? Sure, it follows the exact same format as the other pop star sort-of-documentaries that are so popular right now. Full Story

Emma Stone is actually a natural blonde. Most people know her to be a redhead. It was originally Judd Apatow who suggested she go red for Superbad. And that’s how we fell in love with her. Emma’s been blonde for a while now for the Spider-Man sequel to play Gwen Stacy. Shooting wrapped last weekend. Full Story

Usually he’s piling onto his schedule, signing up for new projects, new degrees, new artistic collaborations, but James Franco has, just two weeks before production was slated to begin, dropped out of his latest directorial effort, Garden of Last Days, in which he was also going to star. But he had a tantrum over creative differences and left the production in the lurch, and it will likely shut down as a result. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I like this description of The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, that I read over at A.V. Club: Part of the point here is to stake a claim on a genre that’s traditionally been a boys’ club, and in that regard, The Heat delivers: In a bonding moment, this odd couple goes on a bender as epic as anything in The Hangover.  Read Full Intro
