Baldwin, Alec — Beloved actor and unofficial Mayor of Television Alec Baldwin was reportedly kicked off an American Airlines flight on Tuesday afternoon after he refused to stop playing the popular internet game “Words With Friends,” tweeting later about it with the hashtag “#nowonderaaisbankrupt.” Sources close to Baldwin, however, reveal that the thesp was just cranky because the only three tiles he had left to play were G, O and P, and staunchly refused to make a move.

Hangover III — Bradley Cooper told television host Graham Norton on a British talk show that a plan for a third Hangover film is in the works, confirming many of our fears that what originally was a truly inspired stand-alone comedy would be inevitably smashed to death in the Hollywood carpet. Cooper said that the third film would likely be the last, and that director Todd Phillips currently had a team of rhesus monkeys tied down Clockwork Orange-style and watching the first two over and over again so they can effectively use the same exact formula of the first two again.

Stooges, Three — Here’s good fodder for a debate: a few months ago, we derided the need for the Farrelly Bros.’ Three Stooges movie — but yesterday the trailer for the remake in question appeared all over the web. On one hand, it looks tremendously horrible (with its original stars Jim Carrey, Sean Penn and Benecio Del Toro long since departed from the project). On the other hand, it does appear to be remarkably astute in recreating the aesthetic of the Stooges. What do you guys think? Horrendous cash grab or slyly genius move by the Farrellys?

Up — A Utah house inspired by the Pixar film Up and recently purchased for $400,000 is facing heat from neighbors who claim its candy-hued multicolor paint job is an eyesore and that all the neighborhood homes are supposed to be painted in similar earth-tone colors. But I can think of the last time the Up house was threatened by an encroaching society. You guys get the balloons, I’ll get the helium tank and strings, okay? 1-2-3 go!
