Since her film career lost momentum, Katherine Heigl is returning to TV in a CIA drama for NBC, but the actress' bad reputation might still wreak havoc on her attempted comeback.

Benedict Cumberbatch has opened up about being abducted in South Africa eight years ago in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Cumberbatch and two friends had been driving back to the set of To the Ends of the Earth north of Durban when car troubles put their journey on pause. "It was cold, and it was dark. I felt rotten. We were wary because that's a notoriously dangerous place to drive. Then, poof, the front-right tire blows," Cumberbatch recalled. "So we got the spare, but that meant getting all of our luggage out. We were like sitting ducks, adverts for -- not prosperity necessarily but materialism."

There haven't been a lot of comedy westerns save Blazing Saddles, Three Amigos and Wild Wild West, none of which were released in the new millennium. Thankfully, Hulu breathed new life into the genre with its original series Quick Draw, an improvised comedy from 10 Items or Less' John Lehrand Nancy Hower.
Quick Draw follows Sheriff John Henry Hoyle (Lehr), a bumbling Harvard grad who is so confident in his intellectual superiority he even boasts about graduating 327th in his class. Now living in Great Bend, Kansas, Hoyle attempts to introduce forensics to the local rubes, who include the dim-witted Deputy Eli (newcomer Nick Brown), the brazen brothel owner Honey (The Sopranos' Allison Dunbar) and the mopey Undertaker Vernon Shank (Cougar Town's Bob Clendenin).
Upon hearing he only has six months left (at Late Night), Jimmy Fallon transforms into Walter White for a new Breaking Bad parody entitled Joking Bad.
The 13-minute video features Fallon and his announcer Steve Higgins as Walt and the "bitch"-loving Jesse Pinkman, respectively, as they work together to cook up the best jokes on the market.

Rowling will make her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is planned as the first film in a new series featuring magical creatures and characters, some of which will be drawn from her previousHarry Potter texts.
"It all started when Warner Bros. came to me with the suggestion of turning Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them into a film. I thought it was a fun idea, but the idea of seeing Newt Scamander, the supposed author of 'Fantastic Beasts,' realized by another writer was difficult," Rowling said.
