CHRISTIAN BALE CAST AS STEVE JOBS: Christian Bale will be playing Steve Jobs in a new biopic from Aaron Sorkin. Sorkin confirmed the casting to Bloomberg TV saying, “What we needed was the best actor. It’s like the NFL draft. There are some people who make a science out of exactly the guys they need to draft a middle, inside linebacker who can do this…and other teams say, ‘Who’s the best athlete on the board.’ We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range, and that’s Chris Bale.” The Apple mogul was recently portrayed by Ashton Kutcher in Jobs which received mixed reviews.

TV DRAMA BASED ON ARCHIE CHARACTERS IN DEVELOPMENT: Greg Berlanti, known for his work on Dawson’s Creek as well as CW’s Arrow and The Flash, is working on a live-action drama based on the characters featured in Archie comics. The show will be called Riverdale — named for the fictional town where the characters live. According to Deadline, “The series will showcase the eternal love triangle of Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper and rich socialite Veronica Lodge and will include the entire cast of characters from the comic books — including Archie’s rival Reggie Mantle and slacker best friend Jughead Jones. Popular gay character Kevin Keller also will play a pivotal role, with other characters from Archie Comics’ expansive library also slated to appear, including Josie and the Pussycats.” The show is being developed at Fox.

MARC CHERRY DEVELOPING ‘PHANTOM OF THE OPERA’ FOR ABC: Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry is working on a television adaptation of Phantom of the Opera for ABC. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be “a drama with musical elements in the same vein of ABC’s Nashville. The new Phantom is described as a contemporary reimagining of Gaston Leroux’s gothic novel and set in the sexy and cutthroat world of the modern-day music business.” Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage musical adaptation of the work is the longest-running show in Broadway history.

CBS CUTS ‘CSI’ EPISODE ORDER: CBS has reduced the episode order for the current season of CSI. The 15th season will consist of only 18 episodes rather than the usual 22. It is believed that the decision was actually made back in May as part of a plan to help launch midseason shows including the CSI spin-off, CSI: Cyber.

COURTNEY LOVE JOINS ‘EMPIRE': Courtney Love has landed a role on Fox’s upcoming hip hop industry drama, Empire. The recurring role is as rocker Elle Dallas — an artist signed to the label at the center of the show. Empire will premiere midseason. It comes from Lee Daniels, known for The Butler, and stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, and Gabourey Sidibe.

 

JENNIFER LAWRENCE BUYS A NEW L.A. HOME: Jennifer Lawrence has reportedly dropped over $7 million on a new home in L.A. The five-bedroom 5,550 square-foot pad includes a home gym, gourmet kitchen, stone courtyard, and swimming pool. It used to belong to Jessica Simpson. New parents Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher also recently moved onto the same block in Beverly Hills.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE DEFENDS HIS POSITION ON WEALTHIEST BRIT LIST: Daniel Radcliffe is challenging Heat magazine’s recent list of wealthiest people under 30 in the UK. One Direction came in at the top spot with 124.99 million with the Harry Potter star worth $102.48 million which Radcliffe claims to be unfair since One Direction consists of five people. He told the magazine, “There’s five of them! That doesn’t count! Not that I care but I am definitely first!” Robert Pattinson, Keira Knightley, and Adele round out the top five.

ZELDA WILLIAMS GETS TATTOO TRIBUTE TO HER FATHER: Zelda Williams pays tribute to her father, Robin Williams, in a new tattoo she got on her hand. The ink is a picture of a hummingbird in flight with Robin’s birthday — 07/21/51 — written below it. She shared a photo of the finished product on Instagram on Wednesday (October 22nd) and wrote, “For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life. I’ll always put my hand out to shake with a smile. As for this Instagram, I don’t know in what capacity I’ll continue using it in the future, but I’m leaving it up regardless so that fake accounts hoping to use my name or misuse my family’s photos will get no traction. To be clear, this is MY ONLY account. Publicly, I have Twitter, and this. If other people post quotes and photos claiming to be me or my family, please, do not send them personal information or click links, even for charity. They could be utilizing sympathy to scam you. For the record, no one has ever or will ever speak for me but me. Thank you.” Robin passed away on August 11th.

CHRIS ROCK OFFERS AN UPDATE ON TRACY MORGAN: Chris Rock recently chatted with USA Today where he provided an update on Tracy Morgan’s condition since his involvement in a car accident back in June that took the life of comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair. Chris told the newspaper, “He’s OK. I saw him not too long ago. He doesn’t live too far from me. I went by his house and showed him a copy of the movie. He was very happy. He’s got physical therapists. There’s a lot of rehab going on. He’s traumatized — his friend died.” Tracy has a role in Chris’ upcoming movie, Top Five.

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY REFLECTS BACK ON HER PROM NIGHT: Keira Knightley was asked about her prom date while playing a game of 20 questions with her Laggies co-star Sam Rockwell. She revealed, “It was a she. Neither of us got invited by anybody else. No guys came anywhere near us. But she had black tie because it was black tie.” Keira added, “She actually texted me at lunch. She is over from New York visiting her mom in England and wondered if I was there to have dinner with her.”

 

Anne Hathaway Was Really Late To The Party

Anne Hathaway and her husband committed a major party foul after being invited to a soiree at Matthew McConaughey’s house while they were filming their new movie Interstellar. The Oscar winner admitted her mistake while promoting the project at a recent press event.

She said, “My husband and I drive up. It’s a Sunday. It’s a beautiful day. There are no cars around and we thought, OK, we’re on time. We’re on time for once. Matthew goes, ‘Yeah, you gotta come in.’ Matthew turns around, again with a smile and goes, ‘The party was last night.'” Anne went on to reveal that her co-star was a good sport about it and asked them to stay for a glass of wine which turned into several bottles.

 

Joan Rivers Lawsuit In The Works?

Melissa Rivers has allegedly been advised to sue the medical facility who performed the procedure that led to her mother’s death last month. Sources tell TMZ that a lawsuit may be Melissa’s only way to get to the bottom of what really went down during the surgery.

Taking legal action will force the doctors and staff at Yorkville Endoscopy to give sworn depositions regarding the events that led up to when Joan’s breathing stopped. Melissa is reportedly angry over the situation because she believes the facility and the department of health knows what happened but are not giving any answers.
