Gene Hackman is Not Dead - Fear not, Gene Hackman is still with us. Twitter was chock full of tributes to the actor after Grantland posted an article titled "The Greatest Living American Actor at 85: Gene Hackman Is Gone But Still in Charge."...One of those mourning Hackman's so-called death was actor Dylan McDermott, who wrote "Rest in Peace."

Chevy Chase Given Nine Months to Live -- by the "National Enquirer!" - Let’s hope that Chevy Chase has his affairs in order. Why? Because the National Enquirer is saying that he has about nine months to live...Apparently medical experts told the gossip rag that Chase’s yo-yo dieting, heart condition, past drug addictions, battle with depression, and struggles with alcoholism have shaved years off his life span. Dr. Stuart Fischer – an internist who has NOT treated the “Saturday Night Live” legend – said, “This could very well be the last year of his life.”...Of course, Chevy isn’t the first celebrity the Enquirer has tried to kill off. Kirstie Alley, Macauley Culkin, Angelina Jolie, and Liza Minnelli have all been predicted to die. And they’re all still around.

Person Dies on Martin Scorsese's Set - Martin Scorsese's movie "Silence" is not getting off to a good start.

Kim Kardashian, other celebrities appear in Super Bowl ads - Along with puppies and babies, celebrities are a Super Bowl advertising staple. And this year is no exception...Using stars is a surefire way to grab attention during advertising's most competitive night, when a crowded field of 40-plus marketers vie for the attention of the more than 110 million viewers expected to tune in to the Super Bowl on Sunday...This year, advertisers are choosing quirkier celebrities and poking fun at bigger names. For instance, Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel make fun of their inability to understand the Internet in 1994 in a BMW ad. And character actors Steve Buscemi and Danny Trejo star in a Snickers spot.

            Snickers "The Brady Bunch" - In keeping with its 5-year-old "You're Not You When You're Hungry," campaign that      shows hungry people resembling humorous celebrities, Snickers 30-second ad recreates the famous Brady Bunch episode             in which the oldest daughter, Marcia, gets hit in the nose with a football. Florence Henderson and action movie   "Machete" star Danny Trejo also make appearances.

BMW "Newfangled Idea" - In order to promote its new all-electric BMW i3 in a 60-second spot, BMW enlisted former "Today"           show hosts Couric and Gumbel to recreate a 1994 on-air conversation when they tried to figure out what the @ symbol   in an email address meant. "Alison," Couric says to an off camera producer in the 1994 clip, "can you explain what     Internet is?" The ad flashes forward to today, when the duo are in a BMW's i3 similarly confused. "Big ideas take a little           getting used to," copy states.

Squarespace "Dreaming With Jeff" - The website publisher isn't releasing its full 30-second spot until game time but a teaser ad           shows a bearded "The Big Lebowski" actor Jeff Bridges recording relaxing sounds for an album called "Jeff Bridges             Sleeping Tapes." The company plans to sell the resulting tapes in cassette-tape and vinyl form and the tracks are free to           stream online. Squarespace CEO Anthony Casalena said the idea is that any idea can be presented via a Squarespace          platform.

T-Mobile hired Kim Kardashian for a 30-second spoof on public service announcements. It pokes fun at Kardashian's constant           online presence. She makes a plea to save people's unused data taken back by wireless carriers. She laments that the data     could have been used to see Kardashian's makeup, vacations and outfits. "Please help save the data," she pleads. The ad promotes T-Mobile's service that lets users keep their unused data for a year.

Kia "The Perfect Getaway" - Kia's ad spoofs Pierce Brosnan's action-movie persona. In the ad, an agent describes a perfect part      for Brosnan, who once played James Bond. Brosnan keeps expecting evil villains or explosions, but instead the agent    describes a Kia ad in which Brosnan drives to a snowy cabin in a 2016 Sorento. The tagline is "The perfect getaway             vehicle."

Apparently she was able to pull off 80 hours in just nine days. The Los Angeles City Attorney said that some of her service – like time spent meeting and greeting her fans before and after her London play – like looked fishy...The City Attorney has demanded two weeks to investigate exactly what Lindsay did or didn’t do to complete her time.
