    Last I'd heard anything about how the Fast & Furious franchise was going to incorporate Paul Walker's partially completed scenes in the most recent film installment, rumors were flying that the studio was planning to add "key footage" of the late actor via computer graphics.

    Personally, I thought that sounded a little sketchy, from the possibility of an uncanny-valley version of Walker digitally ghosting his way through the movie to the ethical murk of reproducing an actor's exact likeness after their death. However, yesterday an announcement was posted to the Fast & Furious Facebook page confirming how they're planning to complete the movie -- and their decision is surprisingly touching.

    Have you been looking forward to the movie adaptation of Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel Gone Girl? Man, I sure have, and ever since we got a sneak peek at Ben Affleck in character as Nick Dunne back in December, I've been dying to see more.

    My wish has finally become 20th Century Fox's command, because the first official Gone Girl trailer was posted to the web yesterday. It's largely dialogue-free, set to an intriguing soundtrack, and features a truly spooky image of Rosamund Pike as Amy. But what's really great about this trailer is watching it knowing that even fans of the book will have no idea how the movie will end.

    Zac Efron is nothing if not a man of his word. Earlier this week, the That Awkward Moment star promised his Twitter followers that if he managed to snag the MTV Movie Award for Best Shirtless Performance, he'd take his shirt off during his acceptance speech.

    And guys, the former Disney Channel star totally delivered. And we totally couldn't be happier.

    When Jessica Alba had her own John Travolta/Adele Dazeem moment and announced the winner, Zac Eee-fron, the party really started. Efron, clad in a short-sleeved denim shirt, made his way to the stage, and just as he promised (granted, with a little button-popping help from Rita Ora), he shed his top.

    Hubba hubba! We're still recovering:

    If there's any doubt in your mind that Katherine Heigl has money on the brain, you haven't been paying close enough attention to her life -- and who can blame you for that? The actress, who recently (and annoyingly) claimed she hasn't made a lot of money in the past few years, is now putting her lawyers where her mouth is by suing the pharmacy chain store Duane Reade for $6 million. Perhaps you're wondering what the store did to make her so mad? Did its employees purposely wax the floors with olive oil when they saw her coming? Nope. But whoever is in charge of the store's social media accounts did have the audacity to post a photo of Katherine carrying Duane Reade shopping bags as she exited an NYC store on its Twitter and Facebook pages and insist the 35-year-old actress actually shops there. So, $6 million for telling the truth -- has she gone mad?

    A shocking announcement put the entire nation into a state of alert last week. No, it wasn't about HealthCare.gov crashing again. It was this: Captain America star Chris Evans announcing his retirement from acting. No! How could it be? He was so young -- and way too hot to quit now. Why would he do that to us? Why? WHY? Well, relax everyone, because it's not happening. Chris Evans set the record straight on Good Morning America today. Evans is NOT quitting acting after all.

    Just days after announcing her split from her husband of 10 years, Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow is announcing the end of another big part of her life. Gwyneth is giving up acting, at least for now. Say it ain't so!

    Her critics are having a field day with this. They take this pronouncement as further evidence that Gwyneth views herself to be above the plebs, that she considers her sorrow so much greater than that of other humans that she must retreat from public life.

    I think it's the exact opposite. For a woman who has been so roundly criticized for being out of touch, for promoting an elite and unattainable lifestyle, this very public display of imperfection shows that she is every inch like you or me. Plus or minus 100 pounds and a closet full of Stella McCartney. No really. Sometimes Stella sleeps in Gwyneth's walk-in.*

    I wonder if he's scared of snakes. Oh, sorry, you just caught me deep in thought over the breaking (but still rumored) news that Disney has tapped Bradley Cooper to be the new Indiana Jones. I know, it kind of sounded like blasphemy to me too, at first. For as long as the movies have been around, there's only been one grown-up Indy, and we love us our crotchety Doctor Jones. 

    But Harrison Ford fans, here's some stuff worth considering. The original Indy is 71 years old, slated to appear in the new Star Wars movie (I know, that made me pee a little too). That means he's going to be pretty tied up for the foreseeable future. And if we learned nothing else from The Crystal Skull (and we didn't), it's that while our love for Harrison Ford will never wane, there's something slightly tragi-comic about an aged Indy.
