Amongst all The Dark Knight hype, the industry is already buzzing about future sequels. Who to follow in Heath Ledger's footsteps as an unforgettable villain? Why, none other than the beautiful, baby-making action star, Angelina Jolie! She may be taking on the role of Catwoman, the character made famous by Julie Newmar, should director Christopher Nolan decide to resurrect Batman's feline foe.
"Angelina would own the part," says Newmar. "My industry friends tell me (she) has made inquiries about the role. I can understand how it would pique her interest. Catwoman is Batman's one true love. She's tremendously popular with women because she's both a heroine and a villainess."
Other famous women who have portrayed the deadly Catwoman: Eartha Kitt, Lee Meriwether, Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Rosie O'Donnell is working with NBC on a new primetime show (slated for 2009) that would have a similar feel to The Ed Sullivan Show. Ideally The Ro would do the program live from a Broadway theater type setting where she could host skits and a variety of music and comedy acts.

Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesThe latest development in the crazy world of Denise Richards: she just dragged Charlie Sheen into court for an emergency child custody hearing. Was it to drive ratings for her E! reality show, It's Complicated? Perhaps, but what followed was beyond screwed up. She then had the court screen videos of their girls, Sam and Lola, supposedly acting in strange and disturbing ways. Sheen's lawyers had the "evidence" dismissed. "Denise's accusations were vile," says an insider. "She was basically trying to say Charlie [manipulated] the kids and acted inappropriately with them. It's disgusting and totally untrue. Charlie is furious . . . Denise has really pushed it too far this time." That's so not something to joke about, and if this is true Denise has really reached a new level of sick.Read More »from Can she get any lower?

David Livingston/Getty ImagesModel/actress Rebecca Romijn and actor Jerry O'Connell have announced they are expecting twins. Of course I'm very happy for the couple who have been together since 2004… but I can't help but think about one person: eternal bachelor/Romijn's ex, John Stamos. I had my eye on him way back before I was even supposed to have crushes, as he played the Elvis-obsessed uncle, Jesse Katsopolis, on Olsen Twin launch pad, Full House. The Emmy-winning actor somehow looks even hotter now in hospital scrubs as Tony Gates on ER, which, OK, I don't actually watch, but I enjoyed just looking up pics of him on the internet.Read More »from My not-so-secret crush: John Stamos

Many speculate about the final days of actor Heath Ledger and wonder if getting into a dark place to portray the Joker had a negative effect on him. Well, it's safe to say 20-year-old Michigan resident Spencer Taylor has fallen under the influence. This weekend he was arrested trying to steal Batman posters and memorabilia from The Three Rivers Cinema multiplex while dressed in full Joker attire and makeup. The Dark Knight fan was charged with larceny and malicious destruction of property and posed for booking photos both in and out of character. Creepy!Read More »from Is the Joker driving people crazy?

Alicia Silverstone - The babe from the Aerosmith videos totally like became our wannabe BFF in 1995's Clueless after she lost out on the lead role on My So-Called Life (wow that would have been weird!). She never landed any stellar roles after until her cancelled show, Miss Match, which we kinda liked. Alicia, if you're reading this, we heart you.
Winona Ryder - When someone has Edward Scissorhands, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Reality Bites and Girl, Interrupted on their resume, you'd think they'd be set for life. Insert a few crappy throwaways (Autumn in New York, Mr. Deeds) and a major clothing theft from Saks Fifth Avenue and you can almost consider your career dunzo.

Scott Gries/ImageDirectRead More »from Britney Spears nominated for Video Music Awardâ€”is there any chance she could take back MTV?
Hooray! It looks like we're not the only ones with our fingers crossed, anxiously awaiting a Britney comeback. MTV has nominated Ms. Spears Video Music Award-her song "Piece of Me" is up for the Best Female Music Video category. The bad news? She's competing against newcomer Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl," (which has been #1 on Billboard for the past six weeks), powerhouse Rihanna's "Take a Bow," long-term music vet Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body," and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks' "No Air."
Granted Britney could eat Jordin alive even with a mouth full of Cheetos, and Mariah isn't the exact epitome of MTV's demographic anymore, Britney being recognized above Rihanna or Katy might require heck freezing over. T.I. who's nominated for Best Male Video even questions her odds. "Stiff competition, he says. "May the best hot chick win!" Which reminds us…. You know what could really usher in a quick, surprise comeback for Brit? A duet with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake! LIVE ON THE
Bryan Bedder/Getty ImagesSomeone somewhere decided Shia LaBeouf was going to be the next big thing. Well, we have a message we'd like to tell that person: we're not feeling him! Sure Shia kept up a decent stage presence in films like Transformers, this summer's installment of Indiana Jones and thriller Disturbia, but were his performances particularly noteworthy? Definitely not. Now add to his resume an arrest for drunken Walgreens shopping, a bench warrant for skipping out on his court appearance, tossing around anti-gay slurs and his most recent DUI accident (he injured his passenger and the other driver and needed hand surgery which will delay his return to the filming of Transformers 2 at least one month) and we're really having a hard time being sold on the latest young man the entertainment industry is trying to shove down our throats. Are we really gaining anything by his existence in Hollywood? Even his name is a pain to pronounce!Read More »from Things we don't get: Shia LaBeouf

Michael Buckner/Getty ImagesIt's so easy to make fun of the guy, but it's kind of sad how he can't catch a break anymore career-wise. "I've had some big 'nos,' and they kind of threw me into a tailspin. The first was when I was up for Indiana Jones and Steven Spielberg turned me down. The next came when I was up for Superman and they passed. The latest big 'no' was when I brought Knight Rider back to NBC. They said, 'We love the project, but we don't think we want you starring in it.' And I went, 'Wow.' I'm still part of it because I love NBC and I love the show."Read More »from Quote of the Day: Poor David Hasselhoff
