It is so, SO ON between ORLANDO BLOOM and JUSTIN BIEBER. Okay, technically, it was on the moment Orlando took a swing at Justin at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. But Justin took it to another level yesterday by posting a picture of Orlando WIPING A TEAR FROM HIS EYE. E! Online says the photo was taken last year at the Broadway premiere of "Romeo & Juliet", which Orlando starred in. He also posted a picture of Miranda on Instagram, with the only caption being the image of a crown. But he took it down.
ALLISON WILLIAMS . . . universally recognized as THE HOT ONE on HBO's "Girls" . . . has been cast as PETER PAN in NBC's upcoming live special based on the Broadway musical. Yes, you heard me right: Marnie from "Girls" is going to play Peter Pan. It sounds bizarre, but it's actually really common for chicks to play Peter Pan onstage. MARY MARTIN . . . who was LARRY HAGMAN'S mother . . . famously did it in the 1950s. One-eyed minx SANDY DUNCAN owned the role in the '70s and '80s. And Olympic gymnast CATHY RIGBY did it on-and-off from 1990 up until 2013. And for this NBC special, they were actually considering KRISTEN BELL, but she had a scheduling conflict. "Peter Pan Live!" is being made by the same people who thought we wouldn't be bothered by CARRIE UNDERWOOD'S horrible acting in last year's "Sound of Music Live!". The difference here is that Allison Williams can do both things the role asks of her: Act AND sing. Oh, and did I mention thatCHRISTOPHER WALKEN is playing Captain Hook? "Peter Pan Live!" airs on Thursday, December 4th.
Production on the new season of "The Big Bang Theory" was supposed to start yesterday, but it's been delayed because several stars, including Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, want more money. Sources say Parsons, Galecki and Cuoco are holding out for, quote, "Friends money". That would be around $1 million an episode, which is what the "Friends" cast eventually got. They'll probably get it. Nobody really sees this as more than a typical contract negotiation. Season 8 is still set to debut on September 22nd, as planned.
Police say a 17-year-old girl was RAPED at a KEITH URBAN concert on Saturday, at an outdoor amphitheater in Mansfield, Massachusetts, 30 miles south of Boston. And it happened in front of a large group of people on the upper lawn. People who saw it took photos and video, and eventually a female fan ran over and pushed the guy off the girl. Other people say the guy got up and left on his own. Either way he ran off, but was caught and arrested a short time later. He's 18-year-old Sean Murphy, and he's been charged with rape. He pleaded not guilty, and was released on $10,000 bond. His lawyer says the whole thing was consensual, and quote, "This was a private act, that regrettably occurred in a public place." He also says the girl wasn't drunk or on drugs at the time, but Murphy has admitted to being "drunk on Jack Daniels and beer." And the police report says that when he called his parents, he was overheard saying he "messed up." This is the same concert police called a, quote, "mass casualty" event . . . more than 50 people were placed in protective custody, and 46 were given medical treatment. Mainly because they were all HAMMERED.

It seems like the folks at the Syfy Channel know what they’re doing when it comes to flying sharks terrorizing a major city.
Last year, Sharknado took a funnel cloud filled with sharks and unleashed it on the West Coast. Last night, Sharknado 2 did just about the same thing on the East Coast – this time plopping a bunch of snapping Jaws-like creatures on the Big Apple.
An hour or so after it aired last night, Hollywood Life wondered if it might be the best worst movie ever - “… so bad, it’s good…” is what they had to say.
Ian Ziering, one of the franchise players, hopes there’s a third installment on the way. “Sharkpocolypse Now!” is what he’s praying for.
The Twitterverse went nuts with commentary all night long at #Sharknado2TheSecondOne.
One of my favorite tweets came from the Ocean Conservancy. Check it out. And wait til next summer, I guess.
Sean Hannity recently had a segment on his Fox News show called “Sympathy for the Terrorists.” Some think that his stance favors one side over the other, to the point where he shouted loudly at the guest who opposed his viewpoint.
For some reason, Russell Brand recorded himself reacting to the segment, tearing it apart bit by bit.
And at the top of it, he said that Hannity “does look a bit like the Ken doll in the Toy Story 3 film.” Of course, Brand didn’t want to appear “petty” or “trivial.”
Which is good. Otherwise, he might land a show on Fox News, mightn’t he?
A three-hour whale watch tour off the coast of Massachusetts turned into an overnight ordeal for 157 passengers the other night.
The whale-watching boat failed to spot some lobster traps about 16 miles out, and got caught up in their lines.
It took until morning to free the boat. The Coast Guard had two ships stationed near the marooned vessel, providing food, water and blankets to the passengers, so except for being at sea a lot longer than they expected, everything ended up okay.
But here’s a lesson for you: whenever something’s labelled a “three-hour tour” and it involves the ocean, you might invoke the Gilligan Rule and stay on dry land.
Two folks traveling on a highway in the Boston area had the (fill in the blank) scared out of them yesterday morning when an unsecured ax flew off the landscaping track they were riding behind and smashed through their windshield.
Luckily, the ax didn’t go all the way through and the head sort of stuck on the dashboard – directly in front of the passenger’s face.
The truck’s driver was fined $200 for not completely securing his load.
They should also make him pay for new pants for both the motorist and the passenger.
ORLANDO BLOOM and JUSTIN BIEBER almost mixed it up at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain yesterday. Witnesses say it started when Justin PURPOSELY bumped into Orlando. Orlando then went after him and even THREW A PUNCH, which missed . . . after which Justin yelled, quote, "What's up, bi**h?" There was a brief confrontation, then Justin left . . . and the crowd applauded. The video is below, but it catches the action AFTER the punch was supposedly thrown.
Everybody thinks JENNIFER LAWRENCE is so sweet and real and down-to-Earth. But what if it's all just an act? An Australian gossip site says Jennifer's boyfriend NICHOLAS HOULT has broken up with her because of her, quote, "EXPLODED EGO." You know him as the guy who plays Beast in the "X-Men" movies. A source says, quote, "Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress . . . Nic wants a more low-key girlfriend." Who could that low-key girlfriend be? Sources say he's already cozying up to ELVIS' granddaughter RILEY KEOUGH . . . because, quote, "Riley is into acting in indies and not playing the fame game."
MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY came back to "Dancing with the Stars" last season, and he won the show with Olympic Ice Dancer MERYL DAVIS. And apparently, he wants to go out on top. On "The View" yesterday, Maksim said he's leaving "Dancing with the Stars" . . . for GOOD, this time. To be clear, he said he was done as a DANCER, but left the door open to return to the show in a different capacity. He didn't really elaborate . . . but we're assuming that would be as a JUDGE or something, because it isn't like he's going to come back as a set designer or boom mic operator.
DMX was recently in Orlando at a place called Magical Midway. There is a ride called the Slingshot. It thrusts you 350 ft in the air, just like a slingshot. He was REALLY scared and didn't even try to hide it. Check out the hilarious video below.
