Jennifer Lopez Does Dallas

Tuesday, March 14th, 2006

Variety says director Robert Luketic is rounding up his cast for Fox’s Dallas, the updated take on the classic ’80s series.

Luketic has offered his Monster-in-Law star Jennifer Lopez the part of Sue Ellen Ewing, Luke Wilson is negotiating to play Bobby Ewing, John Travolta has an offer to star as J.R. Ewing and Shirley MacLaine is down for the part of Miss Ellie Ewing.

While no deals are yet in place for these actors – Wilson is in negotiations – most of the pacts are likely to happen. And if that package does come to fruition, production is likely to commence in October after Travolta has finished up a starring role in New Line Cinema’s big screen version of Broadway hit Hairspray.

Robert Harling and Sacha Gervasi wrote drafts of the script.

Thursday, March 9th, 2006

Valentino expected Jennifer Lopez to wear his dress to the Oscars

Wednesday, March 8th, 2006

Psychic says Merle Oberon contacted him from beyond the grave – about JLo

Wednesday, March 8th, 2006

Late WUTHERING HEIGHTS star MERLE OBERON has sent celebrity psychic KENNY KINGSTON a message for JENNIFER LOPEZ from beyond the grave – ‘Play me and win an Oscar’. The Hollywood medium claims he was contacted by Oberon while he was watching the Academy Awards telecast on Sunday (05MAR06) and she insisted he put the word around Tinseltown that Lopez should play her in a biopic. Kingston says, “Merle Oberon was stunned by Jennifer at the Oscars – Jennifer was wearing an identical gown to the one she wore to the Academy Awards when she was nominated for Best Actress back in 1935. Isn’t that ironic? “Merle is a big fan and she thinks Jennifer has got the perfect exotic look to play her in a biopic. She’s convinced the role will earn Jennifer her first Oscar.” Oberon was born and grew up in India. She died, aged 68, of a massive stroke in 1979. She was known as QUEENIE THOMPSON until 1939 when her then-husband, ALEXANDER KORDA persuaded her to change her name. The actress overcame a car crash in London in 1937, which left her with severe facial scars.

Jennifer Lopez’s Pick for Best Dressed

Monday, March 6th, 2006

Jennifer Lopez was not nominated for any awards Sunday night, but the star who stole the spotlight when she presented in one of the hottest gowns of the evening still had fun at the show.

“I always love the acceptance speeches,” Lopez said. “You know, when everybody gets really emotional and thanks their mom and dad and their husbands, and their inspiration and their music. I’m a sucker for that stuff.”

Lopez chose a vintage green gown for the evening, but the actress who won best dressed in her eyes was fellow presenter Uma Thurman who wore a cap-sleeved, chiffon-skirted cream dress.

“Gorgeous when she walked out — oh!” Lopez said. “She’s just so statuesque, that beautiful dress, it was perfect for her skin tone.”
