It was Edward Norton's first time hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, but he got some helpful advice right at the start from a couple of veterans.
Alec Baldwin and Miley Cyrus made appearances during Norton's opening monologue, with 16-time host Baldwin offering Norton some tips — and Baldwin deadpanning that his turn in American History X was "hilarious." Cyrus basically promoted her upcoming tour and twerked later on in the episode (sigh).
What's one way to cope with directing withdrawal? Chop off your hair.
That's what Matthew Gray Gubler did.
"When it ended, I was so distraught, like, 'Oh no! What do I do?' ... I was so bored. I just flipped out and ...
Barely a week after he attempted to take his life, Owen Wilson is giving friends hope for a turnaround. "Obviously, he has been through a lot," director Wes Anderson told reporters at a Monday press conference to promote The Darjeeling Limited, in which Wilson costars. "I can tell you that he has been doing very well, he has been making us laugh."

In The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Bill Murray stars as an egotistical underwater adventurer who has relationship issues with his wife, long-lost son, and pretty much his whole crew. Turns out, there's a lot of misery behind the movie's comedy.
While Murray was interested in reteaming with his Royal Tennenbaums director, Wes Anderson, the 54-year-old was very unhappy during the several months they spent filming on location in Italy. "I was physically and emotionally drained, not just from the work," Murray sighs. "It was a torturous experience to be away from home for that long. I hated going to work. I was so personally miserable that it was really a challenge to work every day because I was just so lonely and missed my [family] so much. It was what I imagine being in prison is like."
While most of his Zissou co-stars say they got close, Murray has a rather cynical take on the setside camaraderie. "It was like a famil
