Stuff here. Get your Very Important Stuff here.

5. Alec Baldwin’s Second Daughter Was Born.

Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria announced the birth of Carmen Gabriela, who arrived Friday, August 23rd. The “30 Rock” actor has said he has visions of himself being Mr. Mom and hopes his younger child will have no idea he was an actor. “I have one dream in my life and that is that this daughter I’m having — she comes to me about seven or eight years from now, she has a friend, and she’s at her house and she says, ‘Daddy, Susie’s mom says you used to be on TV. Daddy, is that true?’ She has no knowledge of me as a public person. That would be heaven for me,” he said. “I’d love to [quit acting] if I could, yeah. That would be the greatest thing in the world.” Big sister, Ireland welcomed the new baby her own way.

My hope for little Carmen is that she never gets called a farm animal by her father…

4. Danny Boyle Signed on to Direct a Television Pilot.

Boyle will direct the first episode of “Babylon,” a new police drama/comedy from Four Lions writers, Sam Bain (“Peep Show”) and Jesse Armstrong (In the Loop). The director has also announced he’s working on Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting sequel, Porno.

3. Stephen Moyer Sunk His Teeth into NBC’s “The Sound of Music.”

Unlike the Batfleck bullshit, this particular abomination—NBC’s upcoming live holiday production of “The Sound of Music”—is to be reviled not only because of its stars (Moyer as Captain Von Trapp; Carrie Underwood as Maria). Rather, its very existence is an affront to humanity. Stay away from The Sound of Music. I don’t care about Moyer’s musical theater background. I don’t care if Underwood has long, shiny blond hair, perfect teeth, sings like a bird and has Grammys flying out of her magical hooha. Julie Andrews. Christopher Plummer. That is all. DO YOU HEAR ME NBC?

2. BBC1 Set up Dustin Hoffman to Romance Judi Dench.

The pair will bring Roald Dahl’s charming Esio Trot to the small screen. The classic children’s book tells the story of a shy man’s attempts to win his neighbor’s heart. Hoffman will play Mr. Hoppy to Dench’s Ms. Silver; Dearbhla Walsh (“Borgia, The Tudors, Little Dorrit”) will direct the Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Pirate Radio)—Paul Mayhew-Archer (“The Vicar of Dibley”) adaptation…no word yet how many tortoises will star.

1. New Thor: The Dark World Photos and a Featurette Hit the Webosphere.

New Featurette:

Thankfully, I can distract myself from other fiascos with these pretty, pretty pics and random thoughts of Thor accidentally dropping Jane while flying (please?).
