Justin Bieber, Tom Hanks
Is Tom Hanks vying for a spot on Dancing with the Stars?
Over the weekend, Justin Bieber posted a video on Instagram showing Hanks busting a move to Montell Jordan's 1990s hit "This Is How We Do It" at the wedding of Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun. Oh, and if that wasn't perfect enough, Hanks is wearing a yarmulke and a shawl.

If you were to put 1960s television on a psychiatrist's couch, it would be diagnosed as schizophrenic. Primetime was loaded with frothy, high-concept sitcoms, such as Gilligan's Island and I Dream of Jeannie, that became baby boomer favorites, while network news delivered grim images of the Vietnam War, social unrest, and assassinations.
Last season, Girls blew our minds with Booth Jonathan's video tower of terror. But this year, Gaby Hoffman has stolen the spotlight with her portrayal of Adam's sister Caroline. (And she didn't even need Duncan Shiek to do it.)
Caroline's the type of woman who breaks glass in her bare hands and tries to euthanize her own grandmother. But in her rare moments of calm, it's clear she possesses the same depth of wit and understanding as Adam (Adam Driver). She just doesn't quite know how to express it. Though frankly, neither does he.
Jonah Hill, Oprah Winfrey
In the words of Sally Field, the Academy likes David O. Russell. It really likes him. On Thursday, Russell's American Hustle co-led (with Gravity) Thursday's Oscar nominations with 10, while Russell carved out a piece of Oscar history for himself: He's now the only director to have two films garner acting nominations in all four categories. Those weren't the only shockers though.
Tina Fey, Amy Poehler
Memo to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association: Please have Tina Fey and Amy Poehlerhost the Golden Globes forever. (For that matter, the Academy should take note as well.) The former Saturday Night Live colleagues, hosting the Globes for the second year in a row, got the evening off to a rollicking start with an opening monologue that lampooned everyone fromTom Hanks to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and kept the night on track with a couple of skits and one rock star makeout session.
Steve Martin, Angelina Jolie and Angela Lansbury were awarded honorary Oscars at the Governors Awards Saturday night.
Gravity out-weighed the box office for the third week in a row, raking in another $31 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
In the No. 2 spot was Captain Phillips with $17.3. The Tom Hanks film, which is based on a true story, has grossed a total of $53.3 million in two weeks.
Rebel Wilson and Conan O'Brien
Our top moments of the week:
14. Deadliest Temper Tantrum: On The Originals, Klaus tries to rectify the fact that he turned over his daggered brother to his current foe. After a drawn-out plan that costs quite a few lives, Klaus leads Marcel to believe he saved him and, in turn, would return his brother. But in the final scene, Marcel's bratty little mini-witch throws a hissy fit and refuses to give back Elijah before learning how to kill an Original. Klaus better steer clear of Rebekah when she finds out their brother is still gone.
13. Most Mysterious Transformation: On Tuesday's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., viewers get yet another hint as to who or what Agent Coulson is after his death in The Avengers. Coulson and the team help save his former protégé, who is surprised by how different he is from when she knew him. "But what did they do to him?" she questions Melinda May. Seriously, we're asking...
Toy Story of Terror
It's Scream with playthings. A scream and a hoot, to be precise. And the first real event of the Halloween season, deserving to become an annual family tradition right up there with It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown — which ABC is holding until Halloween night itself. Disney Pixar's first made-for-TV special, ABC's Toy Story of TERROR! (Wednesday, 8/7c), is a delightful half-hour vignette of gags, action and self-empowerment, couching its never-give-up message in terrific non-stop entertainment. Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are back as Woody and Buzz, along with such other iconic fan faves as Don Rickles' Mr. Potato Head and Wallace Shawn's anxious dinosaur Rex, but the focus is on cowgirl Jessie (Joan Cusack), who has to face her abandonment issues and fear of being boxed up alone when one by one, her pals keep disappearing from a shady roadside motel where their owner Bonnie (and her mom) are staying overnight.
