Lindsay Lohan ready for her closeup on OWN

 

Lindsay Lohan has standards: She won’t partake in Dancing with the Stars or star in a Kardashian-type reality show, but for the right amount of money, she’ll work with Oprah Winfrey. The 27-year-old actress has recently nailed down the, um, negotiations (in the $2 million range) for an eight part documentary on Oprah’s OWN network, insiders tell TMZ. For that sort of dough, we better hear some dirt, ladies. Production will start when Lohan wraps up rehab next month.

Times two

The Devious Maids cast is expanding. Shortly after Paula Garces confirmed her pregnancy, Dania Ramirez took to Instagram to post her own sonogram. She and husband, actor/director Bev Land, are expecting twins in March.

Stop the music

Don’t expect to attend too many Stevie Wonder concerts around these parts.

The blind singer, 63, says he won’t perform in Florida and other states with a “stand your ground” law in a video posted on YouTube in the wake of the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict.

The “stand your ground” law allows people to use deadly force if they believe their life is in danger.

Hugh’s back

This week’s 44th annual Comic-Con, which officially kicks off Thursday and runs through Sunday, is shaping up to be no different for famous veterans of the event.

Take Hugh Jackman, who’s making his fourth trip to the convention. Last year, he made a surprise appearance with the robot brawler Real Steel. Jackman will spend this week in San Diego hyping The Wolverine, the upcoming stand-alone X-Men spin-off, the actor’s sixth time playing the iconic comic character.

“It’s gold,” Jackman told the AP. “I love being with the fans.”

Director’s cut

Phew. Lil Wayne’s video for his new single God Bless Amerika is out there, minus one major scene: You won’t see the rapper trampling the American flag. LW was under fire when a clip was released of him doing just that to Old Glory.

    Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig: Kindred spirits try something new

    The last time most people saw Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader together, the two were probably wearing wigs while hosting a game show, making out with family members or giving unnecessarily detailed California traffic directions on Saturday Night Live. The next time audiences see them together, they won’t be so funny. In the opening scene of the writer-director Craig Johnson’s The Skeleton Twins, opening Friday, the two actors wield their hard-won chemistry to portray a brother and sister who decide to attempt suicide on the same night.
