Celebrity Twitterwatch: Matt Doyle's Naughty Christmas Ornaments, Nick Adams Hangs Big Balls Deep, and Pink Is Angry

30 December 2011 10:40 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

And Nick Adams is in the front inexplicably.

Welcome to Celebrity Twitterwatch, where we get a peek into the fabulous and how they live their lives, 140 characters at a time. This week brings us a wide selection, but it all starts at Christmas, as we find out what the holiday traditions are when Santa has to check Us Weekly to find out if they've been naughty or nice.

Before the holiday can begin, you have to decorate, and even if you know fabulous designers, you may still opt for the Hgtv method. Thankfully, like just about all Diy explanations, even Christmas decorations can sound naughty, especially as Broadway's Nick Adams takes them out of context.

"the bigger balls I like to hang lower and deeper..." #hgtvchristmas

I've read the statistics about wrapping paper, and what a ridiculous waste it is and how much trash it makes. »

Morning Meme: Robbie Williams Names His Price, Lady Gaga Has Gone Good, and Are Chris Colfer and Jennifer Saunders Besties?

30 December 2011 4:53 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Just a reminder, we're on a reduced schedule this week. We'll have a Meme, Briefs, and a few things in between. We'll be back to our normal schedule next week. Until then follow our Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr for things that we hope will amuse you.

Robbie Williams was on his Radio Rudebox show when friends suggested that £5 million was a good price to pay him for gay sex. Williams considered it and decided that £2 million was fair, but not for Brad Pitt. "It’s £2 million for Santa, but it’s a freebie for Brad Pitt." He then thought for a minute and said “How much would I have to pay him?”

Good news everyone! Paris Hilton is no longer banned from the Wynn Hotels in Las Vegas after being arrested in the bathrooms. Which means it's safe for the rest of us at The Palms.

Christina Hendricks in Talks to Join Elle Fanning in Sally Potter’s ‘Bomb’

27 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Although Christina Hendricks has played modern or even futuristic [2] characters throughout her career, there's no question that she's best known for her portrayal of '60s office manager Joan Harris (née Holloway) on Mad Men. Perhaps that success is why she's in talks to return to the era for Sally Potter's period film Bomb, where she'll star alongside Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, and Alice Englert. Annette Bening is said to be circling a role in the project as well. More details after the jump. The Daily Mail [3] broke the news of Hendricks' casting earlier this week. Potter's film centers around two teenage rebels involved with the anti-nuclear movement in 1960s London, against the backdrop of the Cold War and the sexual revolution. Fanning will star as Ginger, the brainier one of the two girls, while Englert (daughter of director Jane Campion) is signed on to play boy-crazy Rosa. Nivola »

Celebrity Twitterwatch: Chris Colfer's Sarcastic Fish, Dave Salmoni's Holiday Toast, and Eric Balfour Embraces the Haters

23 December 2011 9:14 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

And his boyfriend bakes for a living!

Welcome to Celebrity Twitterwatch, where we let you see what's on the mind of you favorite celebrities other than the lines that someone else has written for them. The holidays seem to be on everyone's mind this week, which means that people who make their living at least partially on their looks are concerned about food.

I've never understood how The Setup Squad's Jonathan D. Lovitz does it anyhow - his boyfriend bakes cookies professionally. I'd be as big as a house, and I mean my house, not those tiny apartments people in New York City live in. But maybe it's those close quarters in New York City that keep everyone sick, so they can be thin?

Well I have the flu. I hurt.Everywhere. Silver lining; I'll be so skinny when it's over

The Year In Television: 2011's Break-Out TV Actors

22 December 2011 11:21 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

This is the sixth in a multi-part series, The Year in Television 2011.

Not everyone can be a TV actor Mvp. You have to have charisma, talent, and you need a memorable part that plays to your particular strengths on a well-written show. Also, good lighting helps. This year we surveyed the television landscape to come up with ten people - both male and femaile - who we really thought broke out from the pack and made inordinate contributions to their respective shows. Some are newcomers, others have been acting for years. These are the break out TV actors of 2011 and, speaking of lighting, we'd like to shine a little more on them.

Aaron Ashmore, Warehouse 13

After years playing Jimmy Olsen on Smallville, Aaron Ashmore joined season 3 of Warehouse 13 as Steve Jinks, a gay Atf agent with the unique ability to tell whether someone is lying.

It's not easy »

Morning Meme: "SNL" Gets a Heavenly Visit, Chris Colfer and Lea Michele Stun On "Wwhl" and Betty White's Birthday Spectacular

19 December 2011 4:23 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il died Saturday morning. It is expected to send shock waves throughout the world as no plan for succession has been announced publicly, though his son has been mentioned as a possible successor.

Students in New York who were suspended over "Tebowing" in the hall during class changes are protesting their suspension. The school board says it has nothing to do with religious freedom (and the students admit it was more about the football than praying), but having students incite 40 people to drop to one knee in crowded hallways disrupts class changes and creates fire hazards. Cell phone video seems to support the administration.

Deadline seems to think GLAAD is getting worked up over nothing with the protest of Work It. It's just a guys-in-dresses comedy in the British tradition. This is of course not taking into account the advertising with men in dresses at urinals, »
