Ben Stiller is ‘Zoolander 2′ Ready

Ben Stiller and Paramount are working on Zoolander 2 with Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder, Iron Man) penning the script.

Theroux is reportedly going to Paris Fashion Week to “immerse himself on what is current fashion.”

No word yet if Owen Wilson will reprise his role, but Jonah Hill is in negotiations to play the villian.

A couple of months ago, Stiller confirmed that he was working hard for a Zoolander sequel, saying:

“I’ve been trying to get Zoolander 2 together and we’ve had a few scripts. I feel that is the sequel I really would like to do some day because I like the original and I would make sure it was something new and worthy of it first.”

What do you think of a sequel?

Sneak Peek: Mischa Barton and Kathy Griffin on ‘Law & Order: SVU’

Mischa Barton and Kathy Griffin guest star on tonight’s (Feb. 24) episode of Law & Order: SVU.

Here’s a synopsis of the episode:

Detectives Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and Eliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) find a woman bleeding from the neck and nearly dead.

The woman dies before they reach the hospital, and soon the investigation leads them to the frontman of the death metal band Vampyre Sacrifyce. He bites girls, steals blood from the local blood bank and sings about violence to women all in the name of his strange, vampiric lifestyle. The singer claims he was nowhere near the scene of the crime, and soon a lesbian rights group led by Babs Duffy (guest star Kathy Griffin) gets involved, claiming the victim’s death was a result of police neglect. However, when more women from Babs’s group are attacked, it becomes clear that the victim’s case wasn’t an isolated incident and that someone out there has a larger plan to bring the group down.

America Ferrera is in Denial of ‘Ugly Betty’ Cancellation

ABC canceled Ugly Betty, but America Ferrera doesn’t want to let go of her character just yet. She’s starring next on the big screen in Our Family Wedding. Here’s what she told Parade magazine:

On saying goodbye to Ugly Betty:

“I’ve lived with this character who I’ve loved from day one and I have only grown to feel more connected to her and also responsible for making sure her journey is a complete one. Her entire journey was about a transformation, kind of coming into her womanhood and owning herself both physically and emotionally. It’s hard to say goodbye. I haven’t really started going there yet because I still have four episodes to shoot. So I’m staying in denial for now and I’ll deal with all those emotions in a little bit. I imagine that when we finally wrap it’s not going to be a dry-eyed goodbye.”

On growing up thanks to the show:

“I never really pictured myself being on television. I couldn’t imagine a world coming along that would entice me enough to sign away years and years of my life to one character. Then Betty came around. I was 21 when I started and I’ve learned so much and grown so much as a person. It has to be about believing in what you’re doing.”

Carey Mulligan is quickly becoming the next big thing in Hollywood and has been getting advice from everyone, even Vogue’s editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.

Anna said I should wear short for the Oscars. I was like ‘No, that is so not what I had in my head when I was six years old!’

Mulligan said that she’s not ready for the Academy Awards, taking place on March 7.

“It’s beyond wild. I haven’t got a dress or speech planned. I haven’t got any of that stuff yet!”

So what’s her favorite part about being nominated for Best Actress?

“It is beyond crazy to be up against Meryl Streep. She is the best actor on the planet. So it is really hard not to be overawed. Meryl Streep is the queen!”
