Lena Dunham wants Kendrick Lamar to appear on Girls.
The actress and writer is desperate for the "Swimming Pools" rapper to appear on her show and she's already got an idea of an "inappropriate" storyline he could be involved in: "If I could ever get any rapper, right now I'm going to go with Kendrick Lamar. I would want him for something inappropriate. I'd say to him, 'I'm in a relationship, but I want you to know that I connect with you on a visual level.' He would make a nice addition to our cast. He's really busy though."
Katie Holmes is in talks to launch her own reality show.
The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark star has reportedly been plotting to reinvent herself as America's next domestic goddess in the vein of fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow and is considering showing her life on the small screen.
"Katie admires how Gwyneth Paltrow has carved out a foodie career. She's hoping this might be a great new direction for her. A number of prominent cable networks are interested in the show, which will see Katie learning to make different dishes, as well as concentrating on catering for children," a source said.
The report comes after Katie, 35, posted pictures of herself with her designer pal Zac Posen learning how to make fresh pasta at Mario Batali's New York cookery school, Eataly. It is thought Katie was getting advice from the top chef about her new show, especially since she only started to experiment in the kitchen two years ago.
True Detective may be one of HBO's hottest shows right now, but Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash aren't so sure that everyone truly understands what Matthew McConaughey (Rust) and Woody Harrelson (Marty) are saying in the cop drama.
For a short segment on McHale's satiric E! talk show, The Soup, the comedian slips into McConaughey's role while Rash pulls of his impression of Harrelson on the new series. In recreating key scenes, the pair not only exaggerate the characters' southern accents but also spout some nonsensical dialogue, a crack at the show's lines rich that are rich with metaphors.
Regardless of whether or not folks can understand what Rust and Marty are saying every Sunday night, it doesn't seem to be hurting viewership!

WWE Superstar Fandango wants to be a contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
The 32-year-old wrestler is a fan of the program and if the opportunity arose to compete on the ballroom show he'd jump at the chance. Fandango - who uses ballroom dance moves in the ring and is always accompanied by his "dancing partner" Summer Rae - first got into the series when fellow WWE Superstar Chris Jericho competed on it in 2011. When asked if he'd like to compete on the series, Fandango told BANG Showbiz, "I would like to give it a go, I just need the right partner - maybe a lingerie model! I've watched Dancing with the Stars, I watched when Chris Jericho was on it, I think it's cool. It's always cool to see the stars - whether they're a football player or an actor, an actress, a model, whatever - put into that situation of crunch training to try and win the show. How they deal with the pressures and their egos of not being really good at it is interesting to see."
NeNe Leakes will compete on Dancing With The Stars. The outspoken Real Housewives of Atlanta star is set to join the likes of Price Is Right host Drew Carey, former ice hockey player Sean Avery and Full House alumni Candace Cameron Bure on the 18th season of the popular ballroom dancing show.
The full line-up was officially unveiled on Good Morning America yesterday morning and features a heavy dose of athletes. Double-amputee snowboarding champion Amy Purdy, who will be partnered with professional dancer Derek Hough, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, and Olympic figure skaters Charlie White and Meryl Davis have all signed on to compete.
Lindsay Lohan feels like a "prisoner."
The 27-year-old star left rehab over seven months ago, following the completion of court-mandated treatment, and began working on documentary series Lindsay for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, but in the first trailer (seen after the jump!) for the show she's seen breaking down as she admits she feels trapped by the cameras.
"I don't want them following me to an AA [alcoholics anonymous] meeting," she said, sitting in her apartment with a companion. When asked if she ever feels like a prisoner, she added, "Yes, all the time."
The Mean Girls actress opened up about her wild past and claimed she's not interested in partying anymore as she's already done everything there is to do. "There's nothing left in a having a drink for me. What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to," she explained.
"Aziz is the busiest man in Hollywood. I don't have time to go get massages with Aziz and he doesn't have time to get mimosas with me... So no, we don't have Donna and Tom's relationship. I don't think there's anyone who has Donna and Tom's relationship."

CNN has canceled Piers Morgan Live.
The news network have confirmed the nightly show - which was previously known as Piers Morgan Tonight - is coming to an end after over three years, though the exact date of the final program is yet to be determined. The British presenter told the New York Times newspaper he and CNN president Jeff Zucker had discussed the future of the program last week and decided to cancel it following "painful" ratings, which he believes is due to a failure to "connect" with American people.
Talk about a surprise elimination!
Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet announced late last night that she won't be returning as a co-host for the dancing competition's 18th season.
Despite having served as the reality show's co-host for eight seasons, Brooke broke the surprising news on her Twitter: "Weird day ... Shocking pre-season elimination #DWTS …ME. Tom Bergeron didn't even read my name... I won't be returning to the show this season."
A confirmation of the news was given by the show's executive producer Conrad Green, who wrote in a statement, "We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season...

Matt LeBlanc is a "little more together" than his on-screen persona.
The 46-year-old actor plays a fictional version of himself in Episodes, but admits he is noting like his character in real life.
"It's a fictitious character, and you just have to approach it that way. He just happens to have the same name I do. When we were coming up with who the character was going to be, I thought it would be fun - since our salaries were all published during Friends - to make this Matt LeBlanc way, way wealthier than me. You've got this guy completely oblivious to the consequences of his actions; that's fun to play. And he's really damaged, this lost soul, the Matt LeBlanc on TV," the Friends star said. But he added, "I like to think I have my s**t a little more together than that."
Matt, who has a 10-year-old daughter Marina with his ex-wife Mellissa McKnight, is glad he has regained some anonymity since Friends came to an end in 2004: "The weirdest thing was walking into a room, a restaurant, a bar, a movie theater, anywhere there's a lot of people, and everybody sort of stopping what they're doing and taking notice you're in the room. And they know you, or they think they do - they know your name, they know what you do for a living, they know how much money you make, they know where you're from, but they're all strangers to you."
