First Look At Ten New Breaking Dawn Faces!

Step right up Twi-Hards, it’s time to put a face to the names of some favorite Breaking Dawn vamps and tramps! Summit Entertainment has just issued a press release giving a rundown of the folks who’ll be bringing the Amazon, Egyptian, Irish and Romanian Covens to life on the big screen for the epic two-parter. Also listed were the American and European Nomads.

Perhaps most recognizable on the list is Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies fame, who will be portraying Garrett of the American Nomads. Also familiar from his turn in Across The Universe is Joe Anderson, who signed to appear as the European nomad Alistair. And Lost alum Andrea Gabriel joins the Egyptian coven as Kebi. Check out the gallery below to get a first look at some of the other faces you can expect to see in the Twilight finale!

T.I. Talks Suicidal Jumper Off The Ledge

T.I. wishes you’d step back from the ledge, my friend (What? You were all thinking it). While on his way to shoot a music video in Atlanta, the 30-year old rapper heard on the radio that a man was threatening to jump off of the 22nd-story station headquarters. That’s when Tip sprung into action and sped over to the scene.  “Something in me just said, ‘man you gotta try and help. You gotta do whatever you can,’ “he told TMZ later that day.

T.I., known as Clifford Harris to his mom, asked the authorities what he could do to help, and ended up recording a video message for the distraught jumper.  In it he said, “Nothing is that bad. Nothing in life is worth taking your life. I’m here to help you. Please come down to talk to me.” His pleas worked, and the man agreed to come down as long as he got some time to talk with T.I. one-on-one.

Sure Tip’s had some troubles with the law in the past. He’s served seven months in prison for firearms offenses in 2009, and is currently on probation for drug offenses. But it seems to us that he’s turned over a new leaf. Launching a foundation to fight Alzheimer’s? Rescuing strangers from tall buildings with a single vid-message? It’s official: T.I. wants Superman’s job.

Helen Mirren’s Not Cut Out For Red Premiere

helen_mirren_main

Helen Mirren flaunted her new figure on the red carpet last night at the Los Angeles screening of Red. The real thing was on location in New York filming scenes for Arthur with a swooning Russell Brand. But the red carpet had more than its share of Oscar-winning star-power with the likes of Jodie Foster, Richard Dreyfuss and Morgan Freeman, who was thankfully without his step-grandchild lover. Also in attendance was Weird Al, which is…yes, weird. Check out the outfits, the glam, the couples and the cardboard in the gallery below!

Will PETA Please Report To Mischa Barton’s Head

mischa_main

Oh no! Mischa Barton forgot to wear a hat to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic! How embarrassing. Luckily she was able to find something on the side of the road to stick on her head. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be dead. Oh my gosh, get it off, get it off, get it off! Somebody help her!

Okay, Mischa might not have a real live bird on her head. But can you blame us for thinking so? Her dark-feathered headpiece is an eyesore on what’s an otherwise fabulous flapper throwback. When a bird appears to be taking flight on your scalp, it tends to distract the eye no matter what you’re wearing. Next time she should just leave that hat in its cage.

Kim Kardashian Has Great Form

kim_kardashian_bowling_main

This weekend Kim Kardashian showed off her bowling skills on lanes that are nicer than the nicest apartment we will ever have. The reality star made the trek from New York to Connecticut on Saturday to host the opening of Foxwoods Casino’s “High Rollers” bowling center, and possibly to flee drink-throwing crazies. She looked amazing in a gold Leger mini-dress, but we’re pretty sure those heals aren’t regulation bowling shoes. The fact she was able to get down the lane without mishap in that outfit leads us to believe that this girl knows how to roll. Doing it in a mini and stilettos takes a lot of (bowling) balls.

The Kardashians Make Bar Brawl A Family Affair

kardashian_main1

When you take on one Kardashian, you take on all of the Kardashians. One woman learned that lesson the hard way last night at the Manhattan hotspot Juliet. While the sisters were out celebrating the fact that they’re Kardashians, Kim was attacked by an enraged girlfriend of a male fan. All the dude wanted was a picture, but apparently his ladyfriend thought they were flirting. That’s when she harnessed all of her crazy, marched up to Kim and threw a drink in her face.

According to TMZ, things went downhill from there. Khloe and part-time Kardashian-babydaddy/full-time-tool Scott Disick had to jump in to pull the furious girl off of Kim. Khloe lost her wedding ring in the scuffle and “literally dove across the floor to retrieve it.” For his efforts, Scott was kicked out of the club, and the rest of the K-Krew exited soon after.

You don’t usually think of the Kardashian’s getting into bar brawls. Maybe they’re trying to compete with Jersey Shore. Kim And Kourtney Take Seaside Heights, anyone?

Ke$ha Drops New Video for “Take It Off”, Doesn’t Make The Song Better

Ke$ha’s got it backwards. She made a new video, but unfortunately she left her aural assault “Take It Off” in there. It wasn’t the video we were complaining about, K-Money. Despite her efforts, it’s still a bad song and we took it off ourselves soon after.

America’s $weetheart posted the alternative video on her Youtube channel yesterday, writing, “me n my friends were bored and we were really channeling some 80s hard (tron, david bowie in labrynth, revenge of the nerds) and we made this new video for take it off. it was really fun to make. i hope you guys like it!!!!!”

The result seems to be less of “a dirty free for all”, and more like a post-apocalyptic lazer tag birthday party. There’s even face painting! Although there is the bit where she vandalizes a live human with a can of glowing spray paint. That got weird. Is it just us?

Jack Sparrow Helps Elementary School Pirates

Johnny Depp’s awesome level has just reached superhuman levels. When student Beatrice Delap wrote a letter to Pirates of the Carribean hero Jack Sparrow looking for help staging a mutiny against her teachers, Depp took a hands-on approach. Yesterday the actor showed up at the girl’s elementary school, dressed in full pirate regalia.

The nine-year-old wrote: “Captain Jack Sparrow, at Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we’d love if you could come and help.”

Depp, who was filming scenes for the upcoming Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides in nearby East London, appeared at the school with only ten minutes notice. According to the Daily Mail, he addressed the students in trademark Sparrow rasp. The sashaying swashbuckler then called Delap out of the crowd for a hug, and told her that he intended to frame her letter before adding, “Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today, ‘cos there are police outside that have been monitoring me.”

Our biggest question for the lucky “budding pirate” is: where did you get Captain Sparrow’s address? And can you send it our way?

Kanye And Selita Hold Hands, But Are They A Couple?

kanye_selita_main_1

Kanye West seemed to forget his mask when he showed up at the Grazia Masquerade Ball in Paris on Tuesday. But no one cared because he brought Victoria’s Secret angel Selita Ebanks, providing yet another example of why it’s awesome to date a super model.

Did we say “date”? Our mistake. Because according to Selita, the fashionista and fashionisto (?) are just friends. This, despite the fact that they’re clearly holding hands in the linked-finger romantic manner, and have been spotted looking friendly at a number of events, including the US Open last month. Selita even starred in Kayne’s short film Runaway. And Kanye mentioned her in his new song “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” for crying out loud! Sounds like the Robsten defense to us.

To be fair, Kanye has been making the rounds since giving Amber Rose the boot this spring. He’s hit the town with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Shay the UK Bombshell, but the 34-year old rapper insists that he’s on the hunt for a Mrs. Taylor-Swift‘s-Worst-Nightmare. For what it’s worth, our vote goes to Selita.

The 20 Sexiest Celebrity Nerds

When we see ridiculously attractive celebs driving their Ferraris to some hot Hollywood party with their glamourous spouse by their side, it hurts. To make ourselves feel better, we assume there must be a trade off for being so gorgeous and successful, and that these A-listers must be spectacularly stupid. Our wounded egos desperately try to console us by saying, “Yeah well, they may be better looking, more popular, and have more money than you, but….at least you probably did better on your SATs! And you got that junior year calculus grade up to a C+, so Matt Damon can suck it!”

But we’ve got some really bad news. Many stars not only have the beauty and the brawn, but million-dollar brains to match. Check out the gallery below to see which smart stars made our Hollywood Honor Roll! And be sure to see Waiting for Superman, the new documentary about the cracks in our education system and the super-smart kids trying to climb out of them.
