Today's News: Our Take


Cher is pulling out her hair trying to track down a $10,000 wig stolen from her private collection. Police report that someone made off with the fur ball during one of the singer's recent concert stops.

Cody Banks Returns Mummy to Multiplex

Arnold Vosloo has high hopes for the spy-kid comedy Agent Cody Banks (hitting theaters March 21), in which he plays a Mohawked villain opposite Malcolm in the Middle's Frankie Muniz and Hilary Duff (Lizzie McGuire). But the down-to-earth South African actor — best known to Stateside audiences as the title monster in The Mummy and its sequel — has no delusions of Oscar.

The music network has also recruited Ashton Kutcher to headline Punk'd, a comedy show in which the actor plays practical jokes on his celeb friends — which basically includes Brittany Murphy and the cast of That '70s Show.
