> Hugh Jackman is in talks to star as Jean Valjean in a film adaptation of Les Miserables.
> Lady Gaga took to Twitter yesterday to urge her "NY Monsters" to call Senator Mark Grisanti, who is still undecided on whether he will vote for or against gay marriage in the Empire state. We suggest you give him a call as well -- today is crucial: (518) 455-3240.
> (Don't?) Take us out to the ball game? A security guard at a Minnesota Twins game told two women who briefly kissed that they were not allowed to do so in the stadium and that they should "adhere to the 10 Commandments." Kind of ironic, considering the Twins are considering shooting an "It Gets Better" video.
> Things are about to get gayer on White Collar this Tuesday night when we finally get our first peak at Moran Atias as Diana's (Marsha Thomason) girlfriend, Christie.
> In Iran, a special police force of over 70,000 officers is patrolling the streets to make sure that men are not wearing "glamorous hairstyles" or necklaces in an effort to stamp out Western influences on the country.
