Rumors abound that Brad Pitt will be replacing Tom Cruise as the next Mission: Impossible star.Â Apparently after the Cruise rift with Paramount, the studio is looking elsewhere to fill the blockbuster role.
According to Access Hollywood, “If Paramount was serious about continuing the Mission: Impossible franchise without Tom Cruise in the lead role, Brad Pitt is obviously well suited to fill his very big shoes.”
“He’s sexy, he’s fit, he’s an A-list star in his own right, and after playing a similar role in last year’s blockbuster Mr. & Mrs. Smith, he’s certainly got the action chops.”

As posted earlier this year, Jackson & Federline have a two-year old son Kaleb & a four-year-old daughter Corey together.Â With Brit & K-Fed’s children together, one-year-old Sean Preston & newborn Sutton Pierce, Kevin has been a busy lad for his young years.
Shar reveals, “I like to keep my distance.”
K-Fed, being the considerate gentleman he is, left Jackson when she was pregnant with their second child after he met Spears at a nightclub & joined her on the European leg of her tour.
Jackson shares her feeling from the break-up, “As far as I was concerned, I was OK that the relationship ended…but the family breaking up is something painful.
“And honestly I didn’t let it happen. Now in the beginning it was rough, because he was overseas, so I really didn’t have much control over there.
“But when he came back home, I told him, ‘Kevin, I’m not going to let you be a convenient father, when it’s convenient for you.’
“If you are going to be part of these kids’ lives, then you’re going to be a part. If not, then you’re not.’”
All I can say is the ubiquitous, you go girl!

Clay Aiken is the ugly, awkward ducking turned into the more confident, new do swan. Clay has a new look, a new attitude, and by golly a new damn hairdo. So respect the boy, I mean man.
Aiken’s new album “A Thousand Different Ways” hit stores yesterday and by all accounts, the Clay fans are singing his praises. In a recent interview with People magazine, Clay revealed a little bit more about the new hairdo swan he has become.
On His New Do:
“I’m becoming a man, not just with my hair, but with my life. This year’s been an education: the education of Clay.”
On His Reported Gayness:
“What do you say (to that question)? â€¦ It’s like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, ‘Did you do this?’ Well, it didn’t matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. â€¦ People are going to believe what they want.”
That’s the best avoider answer I believe I’ve ever heard, he’s a master of the art.
On Panic Attacks He Suffered After American Idol:
“I’d walk into a room and say to myself, ‘I am not going to have a problem when these people stare at me.’ â€¦ But then (in) that situation, my heart would start pumping, and I’d start sweating and looking around nervously and shaking. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack.”
On Taking Anti-Anxiety Drugs:
“I said (to my doctor), ‘Listen, I don’t want to go to a therapist. I have nothing against therapists. I want to think I can do this on my own.’ And she recommended that I try a medication. â€¦ Now I can sit here; I can go into a store; I can handle a photo shoot. I’m able to get rid of all that stuff in the periphery. It makes everything easier.”
On His Future:
“I want to be a father so badly. I want (kids) one day. Not now. â€¦ I would love to adopt. There’s an orphanage not too far from my house, and I’ve been up before with church. I always thought, ‘What happens to those kids who have the potential to go to college but just can’t afford it?’ I’ve been thinking a lot lately about finding a way to pay for one of those kids to go to college.”

You know, who is Sting looking at while he smooches his lady love?Â I’m not buying this kiss.Â You?
Let’s take some wanted time with sexy actress Scarlett Johansson & get to know her a little better. Here are some recent quotes on how the young temptress feels.
On Being Curvy:
I’m curvy â€” I’m never going to be 5’11′ and 120 pounds,â€ she tells the mag. â€œBut I feel lucky to have what I’ve got.”
On Telling All:
“I can’t stand those articles where people spill their life story. After a while I feel like I know more about them than their best friend does â€” and that’s weird. It’s better when you don’t know everything.”
That’s so true. I feel like I know Lindsay Lohan’s breasts better than she does, I see them popping out of her shirt all the damn time.
On Her Career:
“Do I ever get nervous about this, right now, being the pinnacle of my career? Yeah, I do. At the end of (filming) every movie I think, `Wow â€” this is the last one! Nice working with you.’”
“Of course I want to get married, but I’m way too young,” she says. “I’m not ready to sacrifice a lot of things in my lifestyle just to have an engagement ring.”
On Trading Jobs with George W:
â€œWhose life would I like to step into for the day? The president’s. I could probably get some things done in the Oval Office.”
I’m sure you could, Scarlett. I’m sure you could. Does it, I daresay, have anything to do with a cigar?

Daniel Craig has taken over the Bond reigns fromÂ Irishman Pierce Brosnan who had the infamous role for three of the Bond series movies.
Owen was another actor slated to play the part of the suave spy, but is overjoyed for Craig & insists that he is thrilled that a “proper actor” has been cast as 007.Â A slight on Brosnan?
Owen states, “I think when Craig first took the part he got a pretty rough ride, which to a certain extent is inevitable because there are so many different people who have so many different ideas about something like that. You are never going to please everybody.
“The thing that is really exciting is that he is a proper actor. He is not shallow or posing. They have cast a really serious actor and I think that when the film comes out everyone will see what a great choice he was.”
Wow.Â Seems like the English still have a grudge for the Irish.
