  • The latest Spider-man casting rumor: Anton Yelchin for Harry Osborne. Nevermind the fact that no one even knows if Harry Osborne will be in the film (that said: I like Yelchin, and if Osborne is in it, I'd be OK with his casting). (Slashfilm)

  • For those following the fallout from Ed Norton getting kicked to the Bruce Banner curb, the actor has now released his own statement. And even if he did allow his agent to do the dirty work for him, Norton himself is taking the high ground. It's classy. And hell, it might even be sincere.

  • Amanda Seyfried is the first to join Andrew Niccol's (Gattaca) I'm.mortal, a sci-fi flick about a world that never ages, but only the rich stay alive permanently. You had me at Niccol. Seyfried sure doesn't hurt. (Variety)

  • For the curious, here's an early look at Russell Brand in the Arthur remake, which will also star Jennifer Garner, Helen Mirren, and Nick Nolte:

  • Aidan Gillen (Tommy Carcetti in "The Wire,") has joined the cast of HBO's "Game of Thrones." (THR)

  • And finally, here's Whoopi Goldberg, basically the only person in the world who has come to the defense of Mel Gibson. Sort of. She says he's not a racist, and then blames the anti-Semetic tirade of a few years back on the alcohol, and then suggests that he's not drunk in the most recent rant. So ... I hope to God these statements came out before yesterday's recorded phone message was released, because after that, not even Hitler would defend Mel Gibson.
