The Entertation Index: June 10
Efron, Zac – The High School Musical star has finally made it so big that he’s going to join the Miller-Gold Agency. July 12 sees the premiere of the fifth season of HBO’s Entourage, wherein Lil’ Wayne and Tom Brady will also guest star along with Efron, who is reported to be superagent Ari Gold’s latest client. I’m sure Lloyd’s going to love that. Also, I’d like to point out that I’m only mentioning Zac Efron because he’s going to be on Entourage, which I like. Come back when you’re on an episode of Deadliest Warrior, Zac. That’s another one that will get you onto this list.

Galifianakis, Zach - Though his stellar performance in the gangbusting comedy The Hangover has gained him massive notoriety of late, underground comic Zach Galifianakis’ work should already be on your radar. Need proof? Rent Galifianakis’ Live at the Purple Onion, available on DVD, or just watch the video below, in which he teamed with Kanye West for “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”

Middle, Malcolm in the – Nick at Nite has purchased the entire run of Fox’s 2000-06 comedy Malcolm in the Middle for airing on the late night network. Spokespeople for Nick at Nite listed the reason being that “we’re pretty sure everyone in America has seen those fourteen episodes of the George Lopez Show by now, since we’ve aired all of them every single night for the last two years.”

Motherf**ker, Sexy – In news that will surely make us all feel really old, Prince will not be going crazy anytime soon, as the hips formerly known as functional are in dire need of replacement. The rocker, who is currently walking with a diamond-encrusted cane, is also a Jehova’s Witness — which means he continues to refuse the surgery because the religious denomination doesn’t condone blood transfusions. Reportedly, the famed guitarist’s hip pain is tolerable, only hurting when it purple rains.

Picasso, Stolen Sketchbook of - Thieves stole a 33-drawing sketchbook of noted artist Pablo Picasso from a Paris museum on Tuesday, prompting French police and Picasso’s grandson to begin sleuthing for the valuable item. I must admit, I’m somewhat skeptical of my next door neighbor, who has both eyes on the same side of her head. She’s been looking guilty lately.

Stiller, Ben – During a recent Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian press junket, Stiller offended our neighbors to the south by using antibacterial gel after shaking hands with Mexican reporters. Stiller calls the incident a misunderstanding and joked that he’d like to meet with Mexican President Felipe Calderon to offer his support.
