"A teenage private eye…trust me, I know how dumb that sounds."
Those are the opening lines of the upcoming Veronica Mars movie, and to say the film has been "highly anticipated" among the cult TV show's rabid fanbase would be an understatement. Some 91,000 "Marshmallows" — the nickname for the Veronica die-hards — contributed roughly $5.7 million to a landmark Kickstarter campaign to revive the beloved Nancy Drew-meets-Raymond Chandler series, seven years after the show was canceled by the CW.

After the surprising news that "Heroes" will be coming back with a 13-episode event series titled "Heroes Reborn," it's game on for bringing shows back from the dead. After all, does anyone remember what "Heroes" was like toward the end of its original run? Not exactly something you'd be itching to see brought back to life.
With that in mind, here are five shows we would love to see revived and given a bit of an updated spin by NBC, be it by remake or continuation.
This time around, it's about a gay couple who, back in college, when they were both still in the closet, slept with the same woman. Now said woman has died and left her 13-year-old daughter to this couple that is used to their lives as fashionable DINKs (double income, no kids) -- but which one is the father. Dick Butkus »
O'Connell set up shop next to Labeouf, copying his act of wearing a paper bag over his head to meet fans, all for a fun little Funny or Die video. In the clip, O'Connell apologizes for a lot of things, complains about how hot it is wearing a bag over your head and mumbles incoherently when asked questions by reporters.
It's far more entertaining than Labeouf's performance art could ever possibly be. »
Labeouf has gone from plagiariser to 'performance artist' in a matter of weeks. He's an ultimate internet and media troll
Harvard Business School should do a case study on Shia Labeouf. He's gone from plagiariser to credible artist in a matter of weeks. The former child actor for Disney has more credibility now than in his decade-plus TV and bad action film career, and it's all thanks to his trolling spree involving the media, the internet, the entertainment industry, and now, the art world.
Labeouf is in the midst of a widely publicized #Iamsorry exhibit in Los Angeles through Sunday. Wearing a paperbag on your head has never seemed so clever.
The press fascination began in December after it became known Labeouf plagiarized a well-known graphic novel word for word and scene for scene in his directorial debut. But instead of disappearing in shame, he upped his bizarre antics – continued plagiarizing, »

Finally, it's Shia Labeouf who is being copied. After his whirlwind descent into whatever it is he's trying to do, Labeouf opened an "art exhibit" in Los Angeles Tuesday (Feb. 11), titled "#Iamsorry." Luckily, Jerry O'Connell is there with a response.
O'Connell, one of the stars of the upcoming "Veronica Mars" movie, opened a pop-up art exhibit next door to Labeouf's. In his exhibit, Labeouf wears a paper bag over his head reading "I am not famous anymore" and he doesn't say a word. O'Connell's is similar, except his bag says "super famous" and he has no problem talking to those who come in and apologizing for everything that is wrong with the world.
The rival exhibit, "#Iamsorrytoo," is for a Funny or Die video that will be released at some point. O'Connell tells Buzzfeed that it all came together when Gallery 1988 owner Jensen Karp emailed him early Wednesday morning.

Jennifer's fiancé, Justin Theroux, was not present, as he is currently filming in NYC. Speaking of celebrity birthdays, Mila Kunis organized a surprise party for Ashton Kutcher's 36th bash last week by renting out a restaurant.

Heads up, Shia Labeouf! Fellow actor Jerry O'Connell wants people to know #Iamsorrytoo. In what has been confirmed by E! News as a Funny or Die skit, O'Connell has set up an art exhibit spoofing the Transformers art stunt in Los Angeles. O'Connell mocked Shia's display down to the smallest details, titling the exhibit #Iamsorrytoo, a play off of Labeouf's #Iamsorry, and even set up the whole show in the space right next to Shia's exhibit. Funny or Die tweeted, "Breaking: Jerry O'Connell has an art exhibit directly next to Shia Labeouf's. 7358 Beverly. Today only. #IAmSorryToo." According to Will Hackney, who attended both exhibits today, tells E! news that—like »
Bibbidi Bobbidi...Who? Disney Channel will celebrate Valentine's Day on Friday, Feb. 14, by twice riffing on the beloved 1950 animated classic Cinderella. On the star-studded "Smee-rella" episode of Jake and the Never Land Pirates (8:30 a.m./7:30c), shlumpy Mr. Smee is transformed by Pip the Pirate Genie (voiced by Jerry O'Connell) into a dashing buccaneer who, with his newfound swagger, attends the Pirate Convention hosted by Red Jessica (Jane Kaczmarek) and catches the eye of Jessica's first mate Mollie (Melissa Rauch).

Game on, boys! While Texas Hold 'Em may entice Hollywood card players to come together for game night, it's XBox that proves to be the It activity for Will Arnett, Justin Theroux and their famous friends.

Get ready, Marshmallows! Even though we've gotten a bit of Veronica Mars footage here and there, there wasn't a full trailer - until now. In the official preview, the pieces come together as we see Veronica (Kristen Bell) living in New York with Piz (Chris Lowell), years after high school. She's a lawyer, but a crime - and the involvement of Logan (Jason Dohring) - brings her back to Neptune. All the familiar faces are here, like Wallace (Percy Daggs III), Mac (Tina Majorino), and Dick (Ryan Hansen), and this time we get to see other cast members like Deputy Leo (Max Greenfield) and newbie Jerry O'Connell as Sheriff Dan Lamb (brother to Don). I can't wait to see what happens between Veronica and Logan when the movie comes out March 14, but shoot, I really just can't wait to see everything. Watch the full trailer now! »

While the previous Veronica Mars trailers took time to graciously thank the fans and hype the film's love triangle, the new official trailer is all sweet, sweet Vm action. Teased earlier tonight on E!, the trailer offers us a glimpse of Veronica's inevitable struggle with her attraction to Logan, her banter with papa Keith and, perhaps most significantly, her conflict with a skeevy-looking Jerry O'Connell as Sheriff Dan Lamb, brother to the late, not particularly great Don Lamb. The Lamb family sure knows how to raise a smarmy, power-obsessed son. Nature vs. nurture: The debate rages on. »
