18 December 2008 11:05 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

America's most eligible bachelor may be getting hitched—and soon! But settle down, fangirls. Even though John Krasinski was just spotted on what appeared to be a date to the movies with rumored girlfriend Emily Blunt, implying that he may well be off the market, the wedding we're talking about is on TV, on that awesome little show called The Office. After a rocky start, Jim and Pam are happily engaged. Jim bought a house for her and everything is going beautifully. So the next step has to be a wedding, right? Well, happily, there's a new piece of casting that makes me think Pam and Jim might be getting married sooner than we think... Yesterday, The Office posted a casting notice for a »

SAG: Over 130 Stars Against Strike

15 December 2008 1:45 PM, PST | Digital Media Law | See recent Digital Media Law news »

Over 130 stars have weighed in on the SAG strike authorization, coming out firmly against. Citing the economy, the A-listers “strongly” urged SAG members not to authorize a strike, and instead “take the high road … unite with our brothers and sisters in the entertainment community and … three years down the line … make a great deal” when all the union contracts expire roughly simultaneously.

Finally, we’re hearing from the A-listers, and it may be enough to pull SAG back from the brink. Meanwhile SAG Board members in NY and Chicago came out against the authorization over the weekend.

In addition, SAG President Alan Rosenberg was forced to cancel the emergency in-person National Board meeting he had scheduled for this Friday, after SAG activists pointed out in the strongest terms that Rosenberg had no right under the SAG constitution or state law to require that the meeting be in person, rather than by videoconference. »

Michael Bublé Still Carries Torch for Emily Blunt

7 December 2008 11:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Bublé still has a place in his heart for ex-girlfriend Emily Blunt. "I will always love her. We're still friends," the sexy crooner told People after his sold-out show Friday night at New York's Madison Square Garden, where he wrapped up a two-year tour promoting his CD, It's Time. The Canadian-born Bublé, 32, and the The Devil Wears Prada star, 26, broke up in July, having dated since 2005 – since she first stopped backstage to say hi after one of his shows. The Golden Globe-winning actress has recently started dating The Office's John Krasinski. Bublé wishes her only well in her new relationship. »

2009 Sundance Film Selections: U.S. Dramatic Competition

3 December 2008 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- If you are wondering what are the kinds of films that come out of this particular section - look no further then in current headline grabber examples such as with Ballast and Frozen River. So there is always reason to be excited about the announcement of this section. As expected the debuts from Sophie Barthes, John Hindman and Cruz Angeles will be the make up of 16 film selection (read my predictions here). I'm already familiar with at least half of the projects as with John Krasinski’s debut and Adam Salky’s feature length film project but of course, the rest were completely off my radar. Among the projects we covered here are Lee Daniels’ latest Push (not the Summit film) which includes Lenny Kravitz’ screen debut (which means we can expect him to pick up a guitar for one of them parties). THR announced that Nicholas Jasenovec and »

Leo and Zac weren't the only hot guys who were spotted courtside at a Lakers game this weekend — there was a brand new bunch of boys in the house last night.

Blunt Finds Love After Buble Split

20 November 2008 10:52 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Emily Blunt is healing her heartache in the arms of a new love - four months after splitting from Canadian singer Michael Buble.

The Devil Wears Prada star parted ways with The Home hitmaker in July after three years together, citing their hectic work schedules for the break-up.

Buble recently admitted the split hit him hard - but according to Star magazine, Blunt has moved on and is turning up the heat on her relationship with actor John Krasinski - after a romantic getaway at a Santa Barbara, California ranch earlier this month.

A source tells the magazine, "They ordered room service, took long walks and spent every second together. John really cares for Emily - he totally fawns over her. And she's loving the attention. She's a down-to-earth girl, but it's nice to be treated so well." »
