Green graciously talked with us about all things Metallo, including who built him, why he hates the Blur and whether he'll return later this season...

Jon Gosselin: TLC a "Monster"

Jon Gosselin

Jon Gosselin sees TLC as a "monster" that has greedily cashed in on his family and even partially caused the breakdown of his marriage with Kate, his lawyer says.

TLC stopped filming the Gosselin children on the recently renamed Kate Plus Eight after the production staff was banned from the family home.

Jon Gosselin asked TLC to stop filming his children and to leave his property just days after the network renamed Jon & Kate Plus 8 and announced it would focus more on Kate Gosselin.

"Jon is resolved not to allow the TLC corporate machine to devour his family and promote the monster's best interests over those of his family," Jon Gosselin's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, said Thursday in a statement.

He expressed confidence that Jon "will be completely successful ...

Prosecutor: I Lied About Polanski's Case

Roman Polanski

A former prosecutor said he lied to a film crew about advising a judge to send director Roman Polanski to prison more than 30 years ago.

David F. Wells is depicted conferring with now-deceased trial judge Laurence J. Rittenband about Polanski's case in the HBO documentary Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired. In the film, Wells said the judge took his advice to renege on a plea bargain and sentence Polanski to additional jail time.

"I made that up to make the stuff look better," Wells told The Associated Press, adding that he overstated his role after he was told the film would air in France, not in the United States. "They interviewed me in the Malibu courthouse when I was still a DA, and I embellished a story. I'm a guy who cuts to the chase — I lied. It embarrasses the hell of me."

Wells, now retired for more than two years, didn't handle Polanski's case, but he was ... read more

Madonna says she would "rather get run over by a train" than get remarried.

On Wednesday night's Late Show with David Letterman, she also cracked that there were things to be thankful for while being married to filmmaker Guy Ritchie: At least she was out of the United States for the "Bush years."

After she made her entrance on the backs of a few New York Rangers, Letterman quipped, "Have you ever ridden hockey players before?" _ an apparent jab at her reported relationship with A-Rod of the New York Yankees.
