Michael C. Hall moves on from ‘Dexter’


New project

Panicking that you are going to miss Dexter after its final season? It’ll all be OK. You’ll be able to see the show’s star Michael C. Hall back in action pretty soon. Hollywood Reporter reports that the actor is working with Showtime on an adaptation of the novel American Dream Machine, about a talent agent and the movie business. No serial killings that we’re aware of at present. Hall will have a small role and executive produce.

Five’s the charm

Why fix it if it ain’t broke? Seventeen years after signing up for the first Mission: Impossible, Tom Cruise has signed on to his fifth installment of the franchise, which has done more than $1 billion worldwide, Deadline.com reports.


Chris Brown didn’t make it to the big gala Monday night due to technical difficulties. The singer’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Burbank, Calif., after the cockpit filled with smoke, reports TMZ. Newly single Brown did manage to make it to an afterparty with a mystery brunette. Hopefully the new lady is independent so he doesn’t have to “wife” her as he did with Rihanna.

Home bound

Ja Rule has left federal prison in the Adirondacks, though he’s not a free man. The release date for the rapper technically is July 28, with possible community-based supervision for the balance. He’ll remain in home confinement. JR served most of a two-year sentence for illegal gun possession in a state prison and subsequent transfer into federal custody in a tax evasion case.
