Report: Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Avengers 2’ earnings will be record-breaking

  • $20 million paycheck to reprise the role of Black Widow source

» Think this has anything to do with rumors that Johansson will be starring in a Black Widow spin-off and/or S.H.I.E.L.D. movie? Or the massive payday that Robert Downey Jr. saw as a result of the first ‘Avengers' flick? Then again, maybe Disney and Marvel realize that — after you release the third-highest grossing film of all time — you’re going to have to pay your all-star cast a bit more money to get them all back for the sequel.

Check out this awesome mash-up of The Andy Griffith Show theme song and Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’, created several months ago for Paste Magazine by DJ Party Ben. Perhaps one of the oddest ways to remember Griffith, who died early this morning. Here’s a more traditional way.

Insanely sad to hear this; Andy was an icon. He made television worth watching for many.
UPDATE: CBS News is seeking independent confirmation of Griffith’s death, backing off this initial report.
UPDATE 2: The local sheriff’s department has confirmed the report. You’ll be missed, Andy.

Following divorce news, Holmes echoes concerns of other ex-Scientologists
The Daily Mail is reporting that actress Katie Holmes’ recent decision to divorce husband Tom Cruise was due largely to his desire to enroll their daughter Suri in the Church of Scientology’s highly-controversial Sea Org. While celebrity gossip isn’t typically our bag, Holmes echoes complaints previously made by director Paul Haggis and other former members of the church. Most notably, mysterious vehicles — clearly too expensive for the paparazzi — have been spotted outside Holmes’ New York apartment consistently in recent days. The actress says their monitoring is meant as an intimidation tactic. If true, Holmes is certainly not the first person to be harassed by the Church, but could the light shed by her high-profile divorce make her one of the last? (Photo via FunAlso, chosen because Suri Cruise is much cuter than Paul Haggis) source

50 Cent might have made $100 million off his Vitamin Water investment a few years back, but we think it’s time he looks into a new line of work. Late last night, while driving on the Long Island Expressway, the rapper’s bulletproof SUV was rear-ended by an out-of-control Mack Truck. While he was taken to the hospital on a stretcher, representatives of 50 have since confirmed that he’s OK. After comparing the damage on each vehicle though, we’re wondering if Fifty shouldn’t be in charge of designing the next presidential limo. (Photos via ThisIs50)

Before the Mickey Mouse Club discovered the now-ubiquitous actor/hunk/superhero, Ryan Gosling was a gawky Canadian kid with a horrible bowl cut who just happened to have some nasty dance moves. Here he is in 1991, melting hearts with this angelic cover of “When a Man Loves a Woman” and breaking it down to C+C Music Factory’s “Everybody Dance Now” with his sister, Mandi.

At one point he pushes his sister out of the way to upstage her. Top that.

Don Rickles’ Obama joke cut from TV broadcast of Shirley MacLaine tribute 
TV Land has announced that a controversial joke, told by legendary insult comic Don Rickles, will not appear during the television broadcast of the American Film Institute’s tribute to Shirley MacLaine. “President Obama is a personal friend of mine,” said Rickles, adding, “He was over to the house yesterday, but the mop broke.” (EDIT because some didn’t get the joke: Rickles is implying that Obama is his janitor, which has racial connotations.) While Rickles’ spokesman, as well as fellow comedian Jim Norton, were quick to defend the 86-year-old comedian, many others are happy to hear that the joke won’t make it on-air. So, what do you think? Did TV Land make the right call? (Photo by Gary Dunaier) source

Danny Boyle unveils plans for 2012 Olympic opening ceremony
First Look: Boyle, the director of “Slumdog Millionaire" and "Trainspotting,” plans to simulate the countryside, even going so far as to include live animals in the show, and will also feature a village cricket team, the world’s largest harmonically tuned bell, and a model of Glastonbury Tor. In honor of the Glastonbury festival, cancelled this year because of the Olympics, Boyle also plans to have mosh pits at both ends of the arena. So, how do you think it will stack up compared to previous years? For reference: Here are the 2008 and 2010 ceremonies. (Photo via RadioTimes) source
