Andre 3000
According to the Irish Film and Television Network, Andre 3000 is headed to Ireland to begin production on the Jimi Hendrix biography film All Is by My Side. Where will it stack up among these great music biopics?

Cameron Diaz Shows Off Her Long Legs In Short Shorts

Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz looked sexy in white shorts at the photocall for her new movie "Bad Teacher" in Madrid, Spain, today. The actress also wore a pink blazer, red belt, and skin-toned strappy heels. We think she rocks the casual look, don't you?

In the comedy from director Jake Kasdan ("Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story"), a booze-swilling, pot-smoking, hard-swearing seventh-grade teacher (Diaz) rallies to get out of the classroom for good by wrangling a rich substitute teacher into marriage.

Justin Timberlake also stars.

Jenna Fischer
Walk Hard star Jenna Fischer was once jailed for running a red light and forgetting to show up in court.

A warrant for the actress' arrest was issued after she failed to show before a judge while she was studying for her finals at a college in Missouri, and two officers turned up at her apartment to arrest her.

She was handcuffed, taken to a nearby police station and booked - and she was so tired after a long night of cramming for her exams she asked if she could sleep in a holding cell while she waited for one of her college professors to arrive and bail her out.

Fischer recalls, "I ask...

The Best & Worst Of Jack Black

June 23rd, 2009 11:25am EDT
Year One
If only life were so simple as to allow enjoyable Jack Black be noticeably different than awful Jack Black. Perhaps the slightly thinner, slightly less beardy version of him could be the best version of him and the more unshaven and huskier version could be the worst version of him, or vice versa; something, anything, that would allow the audience to know what not to waste their time on.

Yes, if only life were this simple.

Sadly, it's not, otherwise I would not have recently lost 97 minutes of my life to Black's latest film, "Year One". While having its moments coming mainly fro...

Saturday Night Live
For those of you who have been keeping score, it has been a long time since Saturday Night Live, once the premier, end all and be all of comedy on television, has held the clout it once demanded.

Judd Apatow
You may not know his name, but he's the guy who did "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." Ever since releasing his breakthrough film starring Steve Carell as the awkward celibate, Judd Apatow has been cranking out movies like nobody's business. The key is how many roles he can actively fill for that fancy silver screen - Apatow writes, directs, and produces. He's a triple-threat that's got him walking all over Hollywood.

In 2007, he wrote two screenplays (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and Knocked Up), directed one hit ("Knocked Up"), and produced three films ("Walk Hard," "Knocked Up," and Super...
