carrie underwood to star in sound of music

NBC is currently developing a three-hour television movie remake of the iconic 'The Sound of Music' and the starring role was handed to talented country singer Carrie Underwood.

Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment said, "Speaking for everyone at NBC, we couldn't be happier to have the gifted Carrie Underwood take up the mantle of the great Maria von Trapp.  She was an iconic woman who will now be played by an iconic artist."

The 1965 Oscar-winning film 'The Sound of Music' featured Julie Andrews.  She was awarded a Golden Globe and nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actress category.

During the 2007 CBS special Movies Rock, relative newbie Underwood got an opportunity to try out those famous lyrics that continue to move every generation to climb mountains of their own.

The made for TV movie will premiere sometime during the 2013 holiday season.

Check out Carrie's five-year-old rendition below:

jessica simpson baby bump pics

Amid swirling rumors of a second pregnancy, Jessica Simpson and her growing family were photographed yesterday arriving at LAX on a flight from New York.

The Weight Watchers ambassador, who recently lost 60 pounds, was carrying her seven-month-old daughter Maxwell Drew as she and fiance Eric Johnson traveled through Los Angeles International airport.

It was difficult to determine whether she is sporting a noticeable baby bump yet because the fashion designer was wearing a loose fitting grey shirt that came down to the top of her thighs.

The actress, who kept her last pregnancy a non-confirmed event for six-months, has not acknowledged the new rumors ... though she did tweet on Thanksgiving, "I am so grateful for my new lil family!"

Check out a full report with photo stills on the video below:

francesca eastwood 2013 miss golden globe

Following a long tradition of celebrity offspring who have handed out the coveted Golden Globe trophies each year, A-list actor Clint Eastwood's teen daughter will take on the task shortly after the new year.

Francesca Eastwood, 19, appeared last night at a Globe's party and said, "I'm a little worried, maybe, about falling over or doing something like that.  I do not want to wear a ball gown, but I think that fancy dresses are reserved for the nominees.  I'm planning on something simple that won't make me fall over."

Her mother is actress Frances Fisher, who engaged in a five year relationship with Clint from 2000-2005, though they never married.

Francesca appeared during season one of the E! network series Mrs. Eastwood & Company, starring Clint's wife Dina Eastwood and their 15-year-old daughter Morgan Eastwood.

Clint's daughter Kathryn Eastwood served as Miss Golden Globe in 2005 and presented her father with an award for 'Million Dollar Baby.'  She was born to flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves, a woman who carried on a four year affair with the actor while he was still married to actress Sondra Locke.  That secret union also resulted in the birth of a son, Scott Reeves.

Hosting this year's star-studded Golden Globes event live from the Beverly Hilton will be the comedic duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.  The NBC broadcast airs Sunday, Jan. 13, at 8 p.m. ET, 5 p.m. PT.

Check out a photo, circa 2005, featuring Eastwood, Kathryn and Francesca at the 2005 Golden Globe Awards after the jump:

lilo charged in nyc and la

Hours after Lindsay Lohan was arrested in Manhattan for assaulting a female nightclub patron, the Los Angeles District Attorney charged the 'Mean Girls' actress with three misdemeanor counts for lying to a Santa Monica policeman.

Timing is everything and we have to assume that it was no coincidence that the L.A. DA decided to pull the trigger on Lohan after letting the investigation lag for five months.

The 26-year-old plowed a Porsche into the back of a semi truck in June and led police to believe her personal assistant was behind the wheel.  At some point he decided not to take a fall for Lohan and officers are confident they have enough evidence to prosecute her for the deception.

The California charges could mean an automatic revocation of her 2011 probation in connection a shoplifting charge for removing a necklace from a Venice jewelry store.  We're guessing L.A. County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner will soon be presiding over an emergency hearing.

Suffice it to say it has been a really bad week for Lindsay.  Sunday she was the butt of a billion Twitter jokes for her lackluster Liz Taylor portrayal.  Ironically, that turned out to be the least of her problems.

After being released from police custody, Lindsay threw a screaming fit and left her personal assistant Gavin Doyle on the police station curb.

He hit Twitter, "@lindsaylohan after bailing you out last night I HOPE and PRAY you get the help you so desperately need.  We are ALL rooting for you. Xxx"

Later he tweeted, "Life is NOT a movie it's a reality that needs to be faced."

Check out two videos below ... in the first one goes all she-devil against her assistant at the 20 second mark on the slider.  The second shows police taking her into custody:

hes 26 shes 50

It is no secret that Demi Moore has always had a preference for younger men and it looks like New Yorker Vito Schnabel is her latest love interest.

The 26-year-old West Village art dealer, son of famed painter Julian Schnabel, has been dabbling into more than the arts recently.

He and Moore met in Jodhpur, India at Naomi Cambell's mega 50th birthday bash a few weeks ago, and have been quietly spending time together - pic here.

No stranger to dating Cougars, Schnabel has been previously linked to Elle Macpherson and Liv Tyler.

Seemingly a chip off the old block, Vito's father is engaged to ex-model May Andersen, 30.  The senior Schnabel is 60 ... a mere ten years older than Moore.

Ashton Kutcher, 34, is still married to Demi but has moved on with actress Mila Kunis, his 'That '70s Show' co-star.  She's 29 and was recently named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive.

Last night on 'X Factor' Britney Spears and premiered their "Scream and Shout" video on the show and it could just be a hot club hit.

The new tune is the latest single from Black Eyed Peas mastermind's upcoming "#willpower" solo album.

The frontman said, "Working with an artist like Britney is the reason I love making music.  She loves music as much as I do. And I am so proud of this new song 'Scream & Shout.' This is the most exciting song I've worked on in a long time."

Britney seemed a bit nervous about the video last night.  Host Khloe Kardashian asked Spears what it was like working with Will and she said, "He's like a big kid to work with.  He's so much fun. We had a lot of fun."

Brit shows some personality by bringing back "It's Britney, Bitch."

Talk show host Wendy Williams is the latest celebrity to take off her clothes for animal rights group PETA.  Her campaign was unveiled yesterday in Times Square in New York City.

Williams, who was once a fur lover, has joined the "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign and declared, "We should all try to be comfortable in our own skin and let animals keep theirs."

PETA and Williams are urging those who own fur coats to donate them to the organization so that they can donate them to the homeless as part of a winter coat drive.

lindsay lohan arrested

Just another day in the life of Lindsay Lohan.  Seriously.  At 4:00 a.m. this morning the actress was arrested for "allegedly" punching a woman in the face.

The 'Liz & Dick' star was at Club Avenue when she got into a heated exchange with a female patron seated in a nearby booth.  The woman opted not to heed LiLo's command, "Give me space" and got a punch in the face for her failure to comply.

A 911 call brought officers to the scene, where Lindsay was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge and carted off to a nearby police precinct station.

At this writing Lohan is about to be released with a desk appearance ticket.  She'll be required to appear before a judge in the near future.

Adding to her legal woes is the fact that the Los Angeles District Attorney's office could soon charge the actress with lying to police after plowing into the back end of a semi on the Pacific Coast Highway in June.

Either one of these charges could land Lohan back in jail for violating her probation.

These are just a few of her wall of shame mugshots:
