Johnny Depp has officially signed on to play Tonto in a movie adaptation of The Lone Ranger. Now they're looking for a leading man to play the title character. Johnny said, "There's so many interesting possibilities out there. Brad Pitt would be great. George Clooney would be great. Don't know who it's going to be just yet." I think Depp and Pitt would be fantastic together. Regardless of who they choose, I'll be seeing this movie.
Snoop Dogg says he's made an 'anthem for Prince William' after he was reportedly asked to perform for the newly engaged prince. "When I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William’s marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something," the rapper said in a statement obtained by The Wall Street Journal. This has yet to be confirmed by the royal family, but if it's true... well, they'll definitely earn some street cred in my book.
Christina Aguilera told People mag that she's seeing Matthew Rutler, a set assistant from her new flick, Burlesque. "Once I filed for divorce, we started dating. I'm not trying to jump into anything. I'm taking it slow and trying to be happy." Someone should help Christina with the definition of 'taking it slow'.
Josh Duhamel was kicked off an airplane when he refused to turn off his phone. The flight attendant reportedly asked him three times. When he laughed in her face, she had the pilot turn the plane around which was already on the runway. Celebrities may be rich, but they aren't special. Turn off your damn phone, Josh!
Star is reporting Britney’s husband for two days, Jason Alexander, received a phone call from the pop star where she accused current boyfriend, Jason Trawick, of beating her. I won't post a link to the tape since it's a fake. Jason Alexander is obviously desperate for money and attention. Britney and her people quickly squashed the story. She took to her Twitter with the following message.
"Star Magazine, Radar Online, Jason Alexander and the rest of you liars, Ya'll can kiss my lily white southern Louisiana ass!"
Another tv show is being turned into a movie. This time it's 21 Jump Street which will star Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. I love Johnny Depp now, but I wasn't a fan back in the day. I've never seen a single episode of 21 Jump Street so I seriously doubt I'll watch this movie.
