Katie Holmes headed back to Broadway in 'Dead Accounts'

Katie Holmes may be leaving Tom Cruise, but she’s getting back together with Broadway. She will return to the stage to star in Dead Accounts, a new play by Smash creator and season 1 showrunner Theresa Rebeck, opening at Broadway’s Music Box Theatre this fall, the producers announced Thursday.

The five-character comedy follows Jack, who returns home to his family, including his sister Lorna (Holmes), who is caring for their aging parents. Jack’s return throws things into a tailspin. According to the logline, the show “tackles the timely issues of corporate greed, small town values, and whether or not your family will always welcome you back…with no questions asked.” Dead Accounts premiered at Cincinnati’s Playhouse in the Park in February.

The play will be directed by Tony winner Jack O’Brien (Catch Me If You Can). Holmes made her Broadway debut in the Arthur Miller revival All My Sons back in 2008. Rebeck’s most recent production, Seminar, closed on Broadway this past May.

Tom Cruise named highest-paid Hollywood actor

Tom Cruise has some good news on his birthday. Forbes unveiled its list of the highest-paid working actors and Cruise sits at the top.

Hopefully, the $75 million that the Mission: Impossible star raked in will soothe a bit of the sting from Katie Holmes’ divorce papers. Cruise, who turns 50 today, ultimately might not look back so fondly on the past year, considering his personal turmoil. But he had an unbelievable year at the box office, blowing by last year’s champ, Leonardo DiCaprio. The King of the World had to settle for $37 million, less than half of his 2010-11 earnings.

New faces on the Forbes list include Dwayne Johnson ($36 million), Hollywood’s go-to franchise resuscitater, Sacha Baron Cohen ($30 million), and the Twilight hunks, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson ($26.5 million). Check out the entire list below. READ FULL STORY

Rupert Murdoch on Scientology: 'Something creepy, maybe even evil'

Like practically everyone else in the world, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch offered an opinion on the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes divorce announcement on Twitter over the weekend. “Scientology back in news,” Murdoch tweeted. “Very weird cult, but big, big money involved with Tom Cruise either number two or three in hierarchy.”

Murdoch then expanded, “Watch Katie Holmes and Scientology story develop. Something creepy, maybe even evil, about these people.” READ FULL STORY

'The Kennedys' poster revisits Camelot

Some historians have preemptively criticized The History Channel’s upcoming eight-part miniseries, The Kennedys, but there’s little to nitpick about the promotional poster that recently leaked online. The collage of Kennedy faces perfectly captures the personalities of Camelot’s players. There’s the burden of history weighing on the president (Greg Kinnear), modeled from his official presidential portrait, the pleasant but fragile smile of Jackie (Katie Holmes), Robert’s (Barry Pepper) clear-eyed determination, and their father’s (Tom Wilkinson) guile and ambition. Below, Pepper and Kinnear re-enact the famous picture of the brothers consulting during the 1960 Democratic National Convention.

Does this artful attention to historic detail give The Kennedys some credibility?

Katie Holmes joins Adam Sandler's 'Jack and Jill'

katie-holmesImage Credit: Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesLet me get through all this at once: Katie Holmes will play Adam Sandler’s wife in next year’s Jack and Jill, in which Sandler will play two characters: family man, Jack, and his twin sister, Jill. Oh, and Al Pacino will play Al Pacino. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the curiously-casted film is scheduled to shoot this October.

First off, I don’t think it’s a big deal that Pacino will be playing himself. It won’t be the first time! Ooo-aaahhh! And we’ve seen Sandler play a woman before, back in the days of Saturday Night Live. All in all, this is a strange trio, but probably no more bizarre than the cast of Anger Management (Sandler, Jack Nicholson, Marisa Tomei). Let’s just pray that Sandler doesn’t get his makeup tips from Galaxia.

'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' teaser trailer: Hands off Katie Holmes' BMW, and that child!

After the break, watch the teaser trailer for Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Guillermo del Toro’s remake of the 1973 made-for-TV original. Katie Holmes plays a variation of Kim Darby’s character, a neurotic homemaker intent on decorating a spooky Victorian house. Instead of “a housewife,” Katie is “the girlfriend.” And hey! It’s Guy Pearce! Definitely watch this at your desk while staring blankly at a black screen for the first 30 or so seconds because it’s important to thoroughly creep your coworkers out.

Tony Awards 2010: Green Day is everywhere, Jay-Z is nowhere, and Catherine Zeta-Jones gets 'crass'

Green-DayImage Credit: Kevin Mazur/Wireimage.comIf you watched the 2010 Tony Awards—and that’s a very big if, considering it was the night of the True Blood premiere and game 5 of the NBA finals—you probably saw a few strange things: Host Sean Hayes tonguing Kristin Chenoweth, Green Day playing a mini-concert, and Oscar winners Denzel Washington and Catherine Zeta-Jones making off with two of the four major acting awards. The night’s biggest winner was, uncharacteristically, a play: the Mark Rothko homage Red, which took home six awards including Best Play. Memphis—featuring music by Bon Jovi’s David Bryan—won Best Musical. Below, a few more moments from Tony night 2010:

Green Day night: So, let’s tally it up here: American Idiot had four musical numbers. Four: three in the opening number (one from the cast, and two from Green Day), then the show’s official Best Musical performance later in the telecast. That’s more awards than it got (it won best sets and lighting). Heck, that’s more nominations than it got. Think the other best musical nominees were ticked off? READ FULL STORY

Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy in History Channel’s eight-hour miniseries The Kennedys. Joel Surnow, who created 24, will produce the series for 2011. Barry Pepper will play Robert and Tom Wilkinson will play family patriarch Joseph. But who will Lindsay Lohan play?!? [ArtsBeat]
