1. Sneak Peak of Kristen Bell in “When in Rome.”
The movie looks somewhat decent. Since it’s Disney, it’ll follow the formula of the girl getting together with the guy of her dreams. The comedy will be light and a bit cheesy, but fun. I’m just wondering if Kristen Bell has the star-power to attract an audience. Sure, she’s one of the most beautiful actresses right now, but she’s really only been in one movie with mass appeal (Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Other than that she starred in Veronica Mars which was critically acclaimed but suffered from low ratings, and she had a short stay with the declining TV-series Heroes.
2. David Slade (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night) to direct the third installment of the Twilight franchise, Eclipse. So I guess Twilight’s taking the Harry Potter approach by switching directors for each movie. While Hardwicke did a fine job in Twilight, New Moon has even higher expectations for Chris Weitz. And I just assume the franchise will grow larger for Eclipse when Slade takes control. Slade certainly has potential to take this vampire-romance into something memorable. I thought his break-out film, Hard Candy, had moments of brilliance but overall it fell a bit short of being great. Now I’m curious as to who’s going to direct the fourth and final adaptation of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn.

5. A recent Harris poll revealed that CSI was the voters’ favorite TV show of all-time. Say what?! Behind it were M*A*S*H, House, NCIS, 24, Seinfeld, Friends, Two and a Half Men, Lost, and ER.
