Remains of the Day: Zooey Deschanel Set to Play Janis Joplin

  • Zooey Deschanel has won the coveted lead role in the Janice Joplin biopic. The film’s original lead, Pink, dropped out because she claims the project turned into “some circus pop contest – who’s the ‘it’ girl who wants to play Janice.” [SG]
  • Two adorable Asian boys performing Jessica Simpson’s “A Public Affair” is actually much more entertaining than watching Simpson perform the song. [Perez Hilton]
  • Paris Hilton admitted she cries when she listens to her new album. Yeah, me too, but for completely different reasons than Paris. [Access Hollywood]
  • Boy George has completed his community service, and doesn’t he look relieved! [Towerload]
  • Paris Hilton vows not to lip-synch again. [WOW Report]
  • “Desperate Housewives” star James Denton believes the show was passed over for an Emmy this year because it’s “very dark.” I’m sure the fact that last season sucked had something to do with it too. [Junkiness]
  • Kylie Minogue’s blabby sister Dannii says the singer is “so ready to get pregnant.” [Digital Spy]
  • Pretend you’re Tom Cruise and “Escape the Paparazzi.” [BWE]
