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.
