Actor Peter Sarsgaard warms up for his nightly appearances in a Broadway play by playing topless table tennis in his New York apartment.
The actor has a special gadget that fires balls back at him, meaning his partner Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn't have to participate in the bizarre spectacle.

Well I didn't see this one coming. According to THR, Don Cheadle will be replacing Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2. Apparently Howard and Marvel couldn't sort out an agreement over money, so they asked Don Cheadle to play Jim Rhodes instead. Recasting characters in popular franchises is nothing now. It happened this summer in The Dark Knight, when Maggie Gyllenhaal took…

Photo: Warner Bros. Two weeks after The Dark Knight was released the first widely spread lie about a sequel that wasn't even greenlit made its way around the Internet. Johnny Depp was going to play The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman was going to play The Penguin. That was on July 31 as regurgitated by The Boston Globe. Since then Brian Austin Green, Angelina Jolie, Cher and Tera Patrick have all been said to be potential villains, and when I say "said" I mean to say someone lied about their potential involvement. The latest episode involving a third Batman film came yesterday as Michael Caine confirmed he can indeed read the British tabloids to MTV and said a Warner exec "told" him that you top Heath Ledger's Joker performance by casting "Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin." Whaaa? Shock and awe. You mean to »

Jet Li's plastic surgery didn't exactly go as planned
Photo: Universal Pictures I don't remember ever seeing a movie driven by so much cause and effect as The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. This film is inspired by the idea that a group of people should get in trouble over and over again and the only goal of the project is to get them out of said trouble until we all live happily ever after. Then, of course, there is always the argument that replacing a principle actor in the franchise is a distracting move, but it is typically a move we can live with (Maggie Gyllenhaal replacing Katie Holmes in The Dark Knight). However, it looks as if Maria Bello set out to prove that Rachel Weisz is damn near irreplaceable as she does her absolute best to distract you at every turn. If it isn't her »

Sitting alongside Maggie Gyllenhaal in a long-sleeved black shirt and dark navy pants, the Batman star looked uncomfortable as he scanned the crowd of reporters, eyebrows furrowed. He was equally unforthcoming the night before, when he refused to answer questions »

Latest: Batman star Christian Bale has denied assaulting his mother and sister after he was released from police custody on Tuesday.
Bale, 34, is alleged to have attacked his mother Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, at London's Dorchester Hotel on Sunday night.
In a statement issued shortly after Bale's release, a spokesperson for the star says: "Christian Bale attended a London police station today, on a voluntary basis, in order to assist with an allegation that had been made against him to the police by his mother and sister.
"Mr. Bale, who denies the allegation, co-operated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police. At this time, there will be no further comment by Mr. Bale."
The actor's arrest came just hours after he attended the European premiere of his new Batman movie The Dark Knight in London's Leicester Square on Monday, alongside stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Sir Michael Caine.
According to reports, authorities did not attempt to arrest the star until after the high-profile event because they were certain Bale would not flee the country to resist arrest, adding that the lack of severity in the case did not warrant an immediate response.
The actor has reportedly been ordered by police to make a court appearance in September. »

And the actress believes Ledger deserves an award because his role was inspiring to other actors.
She tells WENN, "In order to be a good actor you have to find a place where you are free, but it's very unusual to be absolutely free in the way that he was in this movie.
"It was inspiring working with him. It was such a pleasure.
"In a way I feel funny about thinking about Oscars when he isn't alive, but at the same time I'm a member of the Academy and I would vote for him." »
A posthumous Oscar for Heath Ledger for his Joker performance? "I would vote for him," his Dark Knight cstar Maggie Gyllenhaal told reporters Monday at the film's London premiere. Gyllenhaal, 30, said of Ledger's Oscar prospects that the "degree of difficulty should be incorporated into the award."
