-Also, Billy Ray Cyrus is on the board of the Parents Television Council, which is hilarious.
–Joshua Jackson is set to play a cowboy on a new Showtime drama. As someone who named her DVR Pacey, this makes me stupidly happy.
-Is anyone weirded out by the fact that Bradley Cooper looks like he’s reading a bedtime story to a child in these photos of him with his new girlfriend? No? Just me? And the book he’s reading is Lolita. COME ON!
-Get ready for a fanfic flood: Demi Lovato will romance Naya Rivera on Glee this season.

I got to pick my TIFF films yesterday, and even though I had priority access, Gravity was already sold out. (I knew we were screwed when TIFF programmer Cameron Bailey said on the radio that it was the one movie he would recommend to everyone.)
