This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner will be hosted by talk show funny man Conan O'Brien. As usual, the stars will be out in full force, with celebrities living the dinner tables of various news outlets.
Recently, veteran newsman Tom Brokaw thinks that the some celebrities who are invited to the dinners make a mockery of the event. The final straw for him was Lindsay Lohan attending the 2012 dinner. "She became a big star at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Give me a break," Brokaw says.
No Lohan scheduled for this year, but the names of those appearing cover the spectrum of television and film. The cast of "Modern Family," along with two stars from the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" are among the highlights.
The full list of celebrity guests at the White House Correspondents' Dinner is below:
3Rd Update, 3:40 Pm: Psy is the only act to get 1 billion hits on YouTube with his “Gangnam Style” video, and his follow-up video “Gentleman” is already past 232M views. He has been tapped to join CBS News’ table at tomorrow’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner alongside the likes of Homeland‘s Claire Danes and her husband, Hannibal‘s Hugh Dancy. Related: Conan O’Brien Is Obama Press Secretary For The Day 2Nd Update, 8:10 Am: One day before the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, Fox News Channel has said who from Hollywood it is bringing to the event — and it’s a big list. While Greta Van Susteren is passing on this year’s dinner, Fox News stars Bill O’Reilly, Chris Wallace, Geraldo Rivera and Bret Baier will be in attendance, as will the likes of Oscar-winner screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and a contingent from sister studio Fox’s »

The Carrie Diaries' Brendan Dooling has had a whirlwind first season, going from girlfriend to coming out, and it's just going to get more intense. Still, Brendan doesn't know where his story might go in season two, if it happens. "I mean, in the books, he lives in a tent in his backyard because his dad doesn't want him in the house. I'm not sure where Amy Harris and the writers are going to take his story. You know, I don't know how much of — godwilling, Season 2 — I don't know how much of that would be Carrie and Walt in the city, as opposed to Walt in Castlebury. But there's certainly a lot more adversity coming his way. He's had support in the closet, and now I don't know what his support system is like outside of it." And Entertainment Weekly has a very spoilery photo you probably want to see. »
Teen Wolf is going to a full throated howl on same-sex loving this season. We already know that Danny will be dating one of the Alpha Twins played by Max and Charlie Carver, but we didn't know how far they might take it. Jeff Davis says there will be some only-on-cable scenes between the boys. "I can't say we go to Spartacus levels, but their sex scenes are treated just like any other sex scenes you've seen on our show. I've always thought that if you present this idealized world where young gay men and women are no different from anyone else, and it's not really questioned by the other characters, maybe life starts to imitate art and you begin to see that in the real world."
Sounds like the Prop 8 movie is on the fast track. When Dustin Lance Black's play 8 about the Prop 8 hearings in California was put on in New York City and Los Angeles about a year ago, director Rob Reiner told us he and the Oscar-winning screenwriter were already talking about a big-screen adaptation. But now we've learned that the Supreme Court's decision to hear the Prop 8 case has spurred Black to complete the script as soon as possible. Directed by Reiner, the L.A. production starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Bomer, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kevin Bacon. In NYC, Joe Mantello directed the performance headlined by Morgan Freeman, Ellen Barkin, John »
Title: Mental Director: Pj Hogan Starring: Toni Collette, Anthony Lapaglia, Liev Schreiber, Lily Sullivan, Rebecca Gibney, Sam Clark “Muriel’s Wedding” director Pj Hogan and star Toni Collette reunite to considerably less winning effect with “Mental,” a mad, garrulous little slice of alt-nanny comedy. As imaginative as it is indefatigable, the film nonetheless puts an overall unconvincingly quirky Australian spin on fractured-family mental health movies like Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” Dustin Lance Black’s “Virginia” and Ryan Murphy’s 2006 adaptation of Augusten Burroughs’ “Running with Scissors.” All three of those tales, among many others, take inspiration from memoirs of coming-of-age amidst mental illness, and touch on parentalized [ Read More ]

As the nation waits with bated breath for the Supreme Court to weigh in on gay marriage, some Hollywood heavyweights are prepping a Prop 8 movie.
The film would be based on Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black's "8," a play that used transcripts from the 2010 trial that struck down the law as the source material for an all-star retelling of the case. Proposition 8 is a 2008 California ballot proposition that resulted in an amendment to the state's constitution that declared the state only "recognizes" marriage between a man and a woman. A litany of tinseltown's biggest names performed in the play's inaugural showing, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Jane Lynch, Martin Sheen, Kevin Bacon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lahti, George Takei, John C. Reilly, Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Director Rob Reiner has said that he aims to turn the play into a movie. "We are working on it, »

Hollywood is showing its support for marriage equality as the Supreme Court hears arguments in an historic case. A number of members of the entertainment industry headed to Washington as the court heard arguments for and against Proposition 8, California’s gay marriage ban, which a federal appeals court ruled unconstitutional in February 2012. Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk, Prop 8) and Rob Reiner attended, with Black tweeting he was “moved tears several times during arguments today" and that “history has been made.” Many not in attendance also sounded off, with Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson tweeting

The gay marriage debate is a hot topic among celebrities as the Supreme Court hears arguments in the case of California's Prop. 8, which amends the state's Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Many celebrities have made their opinion on the issue known by participating in the NOH8 campaign, produced by celebrity photographer Adam Bouska.
Some stars went so far as to travel to Washington D.C. to attend the Supreme Court proceedings Tuesday (March 26). The Huffington Post reports "A Few Good Men" director Rob Reiner paid someone to stand in line so that he would be first to enter the courtroom. "Milk" director Dustin Lance Black also told his Facebook fans he would be in attendance.
Katy Perry was present in spirit outside the courthouse as public demonstrators danced to her music, while fending off the Westboro Baptist Church protesters. Still, many celebs were happy to weigh in from afar. Here »
This morning the Supreme Court began hearing arguments for and against Proposition 8, California's same sex marriage ban that was ruled unconstitutional last February. Hollywood took to Twitter and traveled to Washington to show its support. Oscar winning screenwriter and director Dustin Lance Black, who penned the biopic on Harvey Milk, wrote on Facebook that he will be present for the hearing. Producer and director Rob Reiner was also in attendance. Reiner is a board member of the American Foundation for Equal Rights. »

The battle has been years in the making; the line to get into the historic event began nearly a week ago. As the Supreme Court finally hears the arguments for and against Proposition 8, the struck-down ban on same-sex marriage in California, Hollywood is in Washington to show its support for marriage equality. Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, who wrote the biopic of gay civil rights leader Harvey Milk and then penned 8, the attention-grabbing, Clooney and Pitt-starring play about the original court case that felled Prop 8, wrote on Facebook that he will be at

Five underrated Oscar speeches. Five opportunities to applaud fine podium behavior. Let's go.
This is one of my all-time favorites: Ingrid Bergman, who had probably forgotten all about her tiny, insignificant part in Murder on the Orient Express (which, by the way, is mysteriously popular among Agatha Christie stories despite having the most ridiculous, unenjoyably stupid conclusions in her entire catalog -- how is that trash heap more well-known than the glorious Witness for the Prosecution? Tell me!) won her third Oscar in 1974 against, among other notable performances, Madeline effing Kahn in Blazing effing Saddles. But Ingrid knew how weird this win was: In her speech, she immediately announced that sometimes the Oscars' "timing is wrong" before cheering on fellow nominee Valentina Cortese, explaining how Cortese's performance in Day for Night illustrated wonderful truths about acting, and announcing that »
Jonathan Taylor Thomas is making a rare onscreen appearance, guest starring with his old TV dad on Last Man Standing, which I didn't know was still on the air. I used to have such a crush on Jtt.
The Face host Nigel Barker is directing a film about my friend David Mixner. The movie will chronicle his years of activism and politics, telling the story of the gay rights movement, from the 1980s through the HIV crisis, to the present day.
Out has put together their annual list of the most eligible gay bachelors, with Dustin Lance Black ranking #1. Chris Colfer is at 37 for some reason. My future ex-husband Russell Tovey is nowhere to be found on the list. Broadway.com notes that the theater community makes a strong showing, with people like Gavin Creel, but also Ryan Steele and Matt Doyle, who not only aren't really bachelors, but are happily together. »
