I am thrilled to be a part of an amazing new book, A Letter to My Dog, coming out next year featuring notable names like Michael Vartan, Hilary Duff, Kristin Chenoweth, Ken Paves, and more. You too can have a chance to get your picture taken by the amazing professional photographer, Robin Layton. All you have to do is write your dog a letter and upload it with a photo of your pup to A Letter to My Dog.
Michael Vartan married his beautiful bride, Lauren Skaar, at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, CA yesterday. The pair met two years ago in a Whole Foods parking lot and the two got engaged in March of 2010. Lauren wore Vera Wang for her big day, and added her own touch with the addition of an Oscar de la Renta belt! The actor flashed his brand-new ring after the ceremony, where they shared a passionate first kiss as husband and wife. It was an Alias reunion as well, as Victor Garber was one of the groomsmen! Interestingly enough, Garber also served as the officiant in Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's wedding. Michael and Lauren's honeymoon will apparently have to wait, since he's currently shooting Hawthorne. It looked like a perfect, sunny afternoon and a gorgeous event. Congrats to the newlyweds!
News that Drew Barrymore has signed on to direct the movie adaptation of How to Be Single didn't just excite me because it sounds like it could be a cute romantic comedy; I'm more invested because I'm currently reading the book by Liz Tuccillo. The story is about five single friends in their late 30s living in New York City and each dealing with the challenges of her own love life. Though casting hasn't begun, I have some actors in mind to play the female five-some and their love interests, assuming that Barrymore will pluck her cast from her personal group of friends and costars.
Tonight Jada Pinkett Smith returns to the small screen for the first time in years. She stars in the new TNT drama, HawthoRNe. Like another new show, Showtime's Nurse Jackie, HawthoRNe follows the personal and professional tribulations of a nurse.
Christina Hawthorne (Smith) may be small, but when it comes to fighting for her patients and their families, she's a force to be reckoned with. By the looks of preview clips and the scene I've included below, this is one TV nurse who is bound to make a lasting impression.
In addition to fighting for her patients at work, Hawthorne fights to remain sane at home. The show takes place one year after her husband's death and we watch the tough nurse struggle to manage her own grief while also trying to be there for her rebellious daughter, Camille. The show also stars Michael Vartan as chief of surgery and Suleka Mathew, among others. Her personal life aside, Hawthorne seems like the kind of flawed but dedicated nurse people might look up to.
After the jump I have a preview clip from tonight's premiere, so read more
Jada Pinkett Smith brought Will along to the Turner networks' Upfronts in NY earlier today. She was the life of the party in her short cocktail dress, running around and chatting with other actors like Kyra Sedgwick and Tyler Perry. Jada's starring alongside Michael Vartan in a new medical show called Hawthorne, which premieres next month. Meanwhile, Will has news of his own to celebrate — his production company just acquired the rights to a true story about an ex-Marine dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Adrian Grenier gathered sports stars and actors at The Kress in LA last night to celebrate the launch of Absolut Los Angeles, a limited-edition vodka to honor the city. Cristiano Ronaldo took a break from his shirtless sunbathing, which is probably a good call considering that tan to mingle with Terrell Owens and Jaime Pressly. The soccer star was all about the thumbs up, though he apparently didn't want to share the love with LC. Fellow Entourage star Kevin Connolly was there to hang out with his buddy and probably live out a few scenarios that would be right at home on their show.

When I think of David Cross I think "ooh, funny!" (actually I think "never-nude" but that's for another conversation). When I think of Michael Vartan I think first "hot" and then "Vaughn," but never "funny!" And yet, these two will be paired up for the comedy Demoted. The Hollywood Reporter has more details:
Vartan will play Rodney McAdams, a hotshot Treadline Tires sales associate who delights in tormenting his less-than-cool colleague, Ken (Cross). But when their boss suddenly dies, Ken is promoted and assigns Rodney to a secretarial job as payback, giving the male chauvinist a taste of his own medicine.
I love to see Cross getting more work. And though these two seem strange together, maybe they'll have a great funny man/straight man thing going on. What do you think?
Now, I'm as happy as the next gal that our beloved
Vaughn Michael Vartan is getting work. And yet. . . a crocodile horror movie? Really? Well, OK, maybe it'll be the next Jaws. Or something.
Take a look at the trailer for Rogue, which opens this Friday April 25, and tell me: does it look like a fun-scary movie? Or just kinda dumb?
