Seth Rogen and James Franco
What would appear to be one prerequisite for scoring a membership in the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences? Working with Judd Apatow.
Frequent Apatow collaborators Seth Rogen, James Franco, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd and Jane Lynch are among the 134 industry names invited to join the elite Hollywood club this year. As members, they would enjoy voting privileges for all future Oscar ceremonies. (Apatow himself was invited to join AMPAS last year.)

Keshia Knight Pulliam
Keshia Knight Pulliam wants you to know: She's not Rudy Huxtable anymore.
The 30-year-old actress may forever be remembered for her adorable character on The Cosby Show, but the work she's churning out now is a far cry from days past. In Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail (now on DVD), Pulliam plays Candie, a young woman whose choices land her in the slammer.

"She's a girl who's made some bad decisions," Pulliam tells TVGuide.com. "Due to some unfortunate circumstances, she dropped out [of college] and that's where her life took a downward spiral. She got into drug abuse and prostitution, and it's just a story about choices — and how you rebound from those choices."
That story resonated with moviegoers who poured into theaters to make the film Perry's biggest box-office success to date. Pulliam first worked ...

Simon Cowell could command a salary of $108 million to $144 million if he continues with American Idol beyond the coming season, according to a British newspaper.
Cowell, who serves as the most polarizing — and thus the most entertaining — judge on the Fox hit has been offered "three to four times" his current annual appearance fee of $36 million, a source close to Idol executive producer Simon Fuller tells the U.K.'s The Guardian.

Like so many things in Michael Jackson's life, the questions about his estate and custody of his children have become complicated and mysterious — and no one, not even his family, knows what to believe.
As his parents sought control of his estate, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Jackson's most recent will, written in 2002, divided his estate between his mother, three children and charities, apparently cutting out Joseph Jackson, the father with whom he had a strained and tumultuous relationship.

The report came amid news reports saying not only that Jackson might not be the biological father of his children, but that the woman who gave birth to them might not be their biological mother.
TMZ reported that Jackson was not the biological father of any of his three children, while Us Weekly claimed the father of his two older children was Los Angeles dermatologist Arnold Klein. The site also said police sought to speak with Klein about any drugs he may have prescribed to Jackson, but a police spokeswoman declined to comment on the report to TVGuide.com.

We appreciate the understanding, support and well wishes from so many."
