USA Today has finally uncovered the mystery of who that guy in the Capital One commercial is.
His name is Nate Torrence and he’s been compared to everyone from the "time to make the donuts guy" to the "Crazy Eddie guy," yet Torrence has managed to stay grounded. Still, landing the part of the "No! guy" opposite David Spade in the credit card commercials has put him in "an insane, crazy place," according to the paper. The 28 year old actor, who has a wife and baby, also appears on Golden Grahams and Volkswagen commercials, and has a bit part in the next Adam Sandler movie "Click". Which is more than we can say for David Spade.
George Clooney: Movie Star. Sex Symbol. Oscar Winner. Liberal.
What, is that last one supposed to be a surprise or something?
Everybody’s favorite ex-ER doc (sorry Noah Wiley) decided that it’s time for somebody in Hollywood to step forward and admit that they’re a liberal. Finally! I was beginning to think that all the actors and actresses out West were big fans of the Bush administration. I mean, I haven’t even heard a good "Dick Cheney shot somebody in the face" joke since the Oscars… I was getting worried.
Read Clooney’s I’m A Liberal. There I said it! here. I hope when he’s done with his acting career George dives into politics. We could use a sexy president. Sorry. I mean sexier president.
Rav from the News of the World has an update on that crazy on-again, off-again (in more than one way) couple, Kate Moss and Pete Doherty:
KATE MOSS and junkie badboy PETE DOHERTY are an item again, I can exclusively reveal. The couple have enjoyed a string of nights together at her Â£2.5 million country retreat in Gloucestershire. And she’s even given him a key to her new pad in St John’s Wood, north London.
It comes just days after Doherty scrawled "I love Kate 4eva" on his car window as he left court after facing new drugs charges. Last night a source revealed: "It’s the news Kate’s been trying to hide, but it’s true they’re spending more and more time together… "Pete’s like a love-sick teenager all over again."
So if you’re having problems with your girlfriend, just get arrested and write her name on a car window as you leave court. Works every time!
Britney Spears has reportedly had it with Kevin Federline‘s "spend-happy" ways. So she’s come up with a way to deal with it:
Insiders said Spears has put Federline…on a budget. "Each month, he will be allotted a certain amount of money for personal use – i.e., clothing, nightclubs, booze and day-to-day activities. Any big items – cars, or trips that go over allowance – need to be approved by Brit herself," said one source.
This isn’t surprising, considering money problems are a big cause of stress in marriages, especially if the wife makes more money than the husband. But things should be fine once the royalties from "PopoZao" start rolling in.
GREEK HEIR: Alexander III. Apparently this heir to the Stavros/Lastis throne is dating Lindsay Lohan. It’s a good time to be Greek in Hollywood. (Socialite Life)
PITTY PARTY: Oscar-Winning Crash producer claims she’s broke. Will work for millions. (CNN)
BIN LADIN: Wafah Dufour Bin Ladin is stealing the spotlight from her Uncle Osama. The aspiring singer has landed her very own reality show. It doesn’t hurt to be connected. (yahoo)
MASHUP: I-porn. The i-pod commercial reinterpreted with porn images could only be enhanced by a Brokeback Mountain theme song. (daily sixer)
PLAYLIST: It was a tossup between Alex’s, Cate’s and Patton Oswalts. But we had to give it Pres. Bush. With a playlist that includes Dan Maclain and the Archies, there’s no question the Monkees are on that ‘shuffle buddy’ too. (BWE)

When I was in college, auditioning for the Real World was just another way to put off finding a real job. But these days landing one of those shows IS a real job and the perks are endless. Landing an MTV reality show means a ticket to the Gauntlet and an automatic hosting gig on E! But thanks to Absolute Dawg, the real world/road rules blog, we’ve discovered that’s just the beginning.
This entire month, Katie Doyle and her Gauntlet 2 cast-mates Derek, Trishelle, Jamie and Landon are being put up in a fancy Acapulco hotel for MTV’s spring break. Here’s how Katie describes her average day at work this month:
"Landon and I are going to get massages later. There is nothing more relaxing than a massage right on the beach. We got invited on a yacht, and hung out with some cool people….We got more free clothes coming from American Eagle…We have awesome views and and a cool waterfall in our pool."
In my heart I know they’re just as envious of my life (she wrote from her cubicle that smells like onions).
