The Norbit star was passing through the state last month when he stopped at a fast food chain for a quick bite. While Williams was inside, one of his bodyguards opened fire on a retired police dog named Lester after it bit him in the parking lot after running free from its owners during a walk.

And when the funnyman/actor came outside, he felt so sorry for the devastated owners of the German shepherd; he ran inside his tour bus and gave the family his ow...

Comedian Katt Williams is facing new financial woes - he owes more than $280,000 in unpaid taxes.

Officers at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed a demand against the Norbit star for $284,419 on March 15th at the Los Angeles County Recorder of Deeds.

Before we get started on the Mega Oscar Diary, let's go to a few random ramblings from the cadre of pre-shows around the dial:

-Philip Seymour Hoffman's hat probably came with a matching set of fingerless gloves.

-Those who were unable to see the Los Angeles CW affiliate's pre-show missed this exchange.

-Mickey Rourke: (Slowly eyes her up from head to toe with a knowing smile and walks off.)

The 45-year-old actor publicly dumped six-mon...
