As shows prepare to halt production (Grey's Anatomy was supposed to fim through May and is now set to stop filming next week), actors are taking to the picket lines in support of the Writers Guild of America. Without storylines, there are no more shows. And actors are no fools. The last thing they want is angry writers destroying their character or killing them off. The cast of The Office, Grey's Anatomy, Heroes, and Reno 911 all spent some time marching (in the case of Grey's, during their lunch break from filming).
In talks to join the cast of Ugly Betty for three episodes. LiLo would play a former high-school classmate of Betty’s who manages the fast-food joint where Betty's dad gets a job until Betty sets her up with a job at “Mode.”
Writing in from Washington D.C. is East Coast correspondent, Millie:
Last night I attended the DC premiere of Lions for Lambs. Tom and Katie (aka Pixie and Pixette) were there and I had a little star moment. I went to get some beverages before the movie started and ran right into them as they were entering the theater. I was pinned to the wall by some security guard wearing a bullet proof vest (really?) as they kissed cheeks, shook hands and took pictures with everyone and their moms. Speaking of moms, Pixie’s mom was there. And so were her chompers. I don’t think she ever stopped smiling. Pixie is little, obviously, and Pixette is really pretty. She’s skinny, but not anno and she’s buff. Her shoes were rocking. Here’s a picture:
So finally Robert Redford came and introduced the movie. Here’s a picture of him:

Nick Hogan is being booked on a charge of reckless driving involving serious bodily injury related to his Aug. 26 car crash which left his friend John Graziano, 22, critically injured. His family issued the following statement:
"Nick and the entire 'Hogan' Bollea family are saddened that criminal charges have been filed in regards to the tragic single car accident on August 26, 2007. Nick will meet and answer these charges in the appropriate arena – a court of law. The family's primary focus and concern still remains for the continued recovery of Nick's longtime friend John Graziano. The Bolleas will also continue to stand by the Graziano family and help them in any way they can. "The tragedy to both families is compounded by the fact that unfortunately John was not wearing his seatbelt. Thankfully, Nick was wearing his. Because of what happened to John, the entire Bollea family will make it a priority to increase public awareness about the importance of always wearing your seatbelt. "There has been much speculation as to the speed and wet road conditions surrounding this accident. Although all the evidence has not been evaluated, preliminary reports from the experts indicate that this was not, in fact, a high-speed accident. "Because Nick is still a juvenile and has no prior criminal record, we are disappointed that he is being charged as an adult offender. However, we are confident that the evidence will demonstrate that this was an accident. We ask all who follow these events to keep an open mind as to the facts until they have been ultimately determined. Finally, we thank all who have prayed for John's recovery and ask for your continued support and prayers."
Gimme More! Nick Hogan

Alison Lohman, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Nicolette Sheridan, and a slew of other celebrities turned out for the Los Angeles premiere of Beowulf. In the film, Angie plays a temptress killer lizard and is painted gold but animated without clothes on. She says that she won't let the kids see it now, but hopes they will in the future.
As Beyonce touching down in the Philippines, her longtime boyfriend Jay Z has a mighty big day. Not only does his critically acclaimed, far more impressive than the last, "American Gangster" album drop today, but he is supposedly working on a cosmetics line with Elizabeth Arden. That's right. Make-up by Jay Z for the Rocawear line. How gangster is that?
