Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau
What a difference a couple of years have made for Iron Man.
"Nobody cared about Iron Man until we came here," director Jon Favreau told a packed house at the San Diego Comic-Con Saturday, reacting to a rowdy welcome much different than the one the first Iron Man film received two years ago. Favreau rewarded the more than 6,000 fans by showing five minutes of footage from next summer's sure-to-be-blockbuster smash.

Ben Roethlisberger, Shaquille O'Neal
A woman's sexual assault claim against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will not derail his participation in a new ABC reality show starring NBA star Shaquille O'Neal.
A 31-year-old Lake Tahoe casino hostess has filed a civil suit against Roethlisberger, claiming the Super Bowl champ raped her in a hotel penthouse in July 2008. Roethlisberger denied the accusations Thursday, and has not been criminally charged.
"Her false and vicious allegations are an attack on my family and on me," Roethlisberger read from a prepared statement. "I would never, ever force myself on a woman."
Production on Roethlisberger's episode of Shaq Vs. was...

Hot flames and high tempers are nothing new on Hell's Kitchen. But this season, it's not just Gordon Ramsay who is turning up the heat.
The sixth-season premiere of the Fox series (Tuesday at 8/7 CT) features a crop of 16 aspiring chefs, and a handful of them don't show any sign of intimidation. In fact, one contestant whose attitude is more pro wrestler than gourmet chef even asks Ramsay if he'd like to step outside to handle their disagreement.

Ramsay said he encourages that kind of confidence, as long as the culinary skills back it up.
"When you have the arrogance and you can't cook, then you're only going to look stupid," he said. "I suppose ...
Larry King, Joe Jackson
On Larry King Live Monday night, Joe Jackson denied allegations that he was trying to build a new music group with Michael Jackson's three children, calling the notion "a bunch of jive."

When the officer approached Donovan, the actor said, "Sorry, I didn't see the red light or your stopped car," according to the report.
