The Hollywood Reporter says JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has signed on to play the music mogul in "Spinning Gold." They're still trying to find the right director for the project.

CBS unveiled their new fall schedule yesterday – and it didn’t include the much-talked-about EDDIE MURPHY's reboot of "Beverly Hills Cop." The network says, they were more interested in a half-hour comedy. So is that it? Well, no because now it appears that "Beverly Hills Cop" could show up on another network --or maybe even cable.

NICOLE KIDMAN has already modeled for Chanel and now she has been tapped by Jimmy Choo shoes to be the face of their fall ad campaign. The ads have already been shot and will debut in August.
Original supermodel CHRISTY TURLINGTON BURNS is returning as the face of Calvin Klein... 25 years after she first struck a pose for the brand. Women’s Wear Daily says she just shot a full underwear campaign that will start appearing on billboards and in magazines in September. (And she doesn’t look like she’s aged at all.) Christy first modeled for Calvin Klein back in 1988 for their “Eternity” fragrance.”
Congratulations to AMERICA FERRARA, who is set to graduate from the University of Southern California tomorrow. The actress revealed on Twitter that it "took me 10 years, but it feels great!" America is receiving her bachelor's degree in international relations and enrolled at the prestigious college back in 2002, but took a leave of absence when she landed her plum role on "Ugly Betty."
Another celebrity Twitter hack- or maybe it was just a joke but yesterday’s tweet from Sean “Diddy” Combs read: "MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show” The show’s logo was added as his picture on the account as well. But PBS has released a statement that no, he won't be joining the cast of Downton Abbey.
