About an hour ago, the actress coyly asked Twitter followers to name the origin of the quote “I’m smiling at you even though you’re aggravating me,” which, we know, is a line from none other than that effervescent escort to extinction, Ms. Trinket. The actress then retweeted the correct answer along with “Yes! And I can now confirm I’m EFFIE TRINKET in @TheHungerGames. So excited!”, confirming that she would indeed be reteaming with her Seabiscuit director Gary Ross to play the character in his big-screen version of the bestselling YA novel.
“This really could happen to anyone my age. I mean, maybe not the whole vampire thing, but everything else. It didn’t feel like, ‘Oh how could you have possibly played this? It’s so beyond you years!’ It’s like, ‘Not really, dude. I could f—-ing get pregnant tomorrow.”—
A report surfaced this morning that producers of the 2011 Tony Awards were looking to shake up this year’s June 12 telecast by hiring Chris Rock (who’s currently starring on Broadway in Motherf—er with a Hat) to host. But we’ve got some sad news: Word from Rock’s camp is that, though the comedian and former Oscar front man hasn’t ruled out being involved in the night’s festivities in some way (most think Motherf—er is a shoe-in for a nomination), he will not be MC-ing the show.
“In a recent issue of Star, we published headlines about Katie Holmes that could be read to suggest that she was addicted to drugs. Star did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for a drug addiction. Star apologizes to Ms. Holmes for any misperception and will be making a substantial donation to charity on Ms. Holmes’ behalf for any harm that we may have caused.”—Wow—Katie Holmes actually got Star magazine to apologize to her. Kudos, Mrs. Cruise.
Q’Viva! The Choice will seek out the best Latin America music performers “from remote villages to major cities.” (If you know how to sing, no matter where you are, a reality show is going to find you!)
Despite stiff competition (a two-hour Dancing with the Stars! A special 90-minute episode of Glee!), The Voice was the No. 1 show last night in the all-important 18-49 demographic. Early estimates guess that the singing series’ premiere pulled a 5.1 rating/13 share in the demo and 11.8 million viewers.
If you didn’t watch the first episode of The Voice, you’re in luck — our exhaustive recap should get you caught up in no time. If you did watch, what did you think of Episode 1?

“I think my favorite look was probably my Amazonian avatar or whatever that tribal look was. … I was like, Wow, this might be a little bit too scary for everyone — but I put it on and it just made so much sense. This is me, this is what I look like, and it was definitely a great representation of who I am as a drag queen.”—Why have I never seen an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race???
“When you’re the last place network, you don’t want to jeopardize that. You found your niche, stay there.”—Paul Reiser slams NBC for canceling his new sitcom after airing only two episodes. (Another zinger, said to Jay Leno: “NBC, to my knowledge, they don’t traditionally make bad decisions. I don’t know what your experience is.”)
In her defense, Crowther told the Times that though she’s appeared in several episodes of Glee as an extra, she wasn’t even on set when the prom scene was filmed. Instead, she claimed that she heard the spoiler from another extra — and that she had no idea it was true until Falchuk responded to her message with angry tweets. As a result of the incident, Crowther was told that she’d never work on another Fox program again; she’s also been suspended from her extra casting agencies for two to three weeks.
Tomorrow we start shooting (I THINK I’m legally permitted to say that). Day one. That’s right. We’ll be shooting the pivotal death/betrayal/product placement/setting up the sequel/coming out scene, at the following address:

According to the Hollywood Reporter, MasterImage 3D is poised to install glasses-free 3-D screens on the planes of several airlines. You know, because the biggest problem all of us have with air travel is that the in-flight movies are too two-dimensional.
