A Week In News Featuring: Shia LaBeouf, Prince Harry, Russell Brand & Geri Halliwell, Justin Bieber, Bill Cosby, Katy Perry and More

30th August 2012

Method Acting? Last week's weekly roundup touched upon Shia LaBeouf's apparent 'real sex scenes' for Lars Von Trier's 'Nymphomaniac'. Well, it seems he's been at it again, dropping acid and drinking moonshine. Is he taking method acting too far?

Prince Charming: Prince Harry's antics in Vegas a couple of weeks ago have snowballed into an international furore, with media outlets on both sides of the Atlantic debating the ethics of printing the pictures of Harry playing strip billiards. All we know is that the world would be a far quieter place without him. God bless him!

Spice Up Your Life: We were both excited and positively bemused by news this week that British comedian Russell Brand is apparently dating Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell.

Spice Up Your Life: We were both excited and positively bemused by news this week that British comedian Russell Brand is apparently dating Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell. The couple reportedly bonded over a mutual love for yoga and spiritualism. What do you think, are they a good couple?

Sam Lands Hot Role: The final key roles in The Hunger Games sequel 'Catching Fire' are being cast, with actor Sam Claflin landing the much coveted part of Finnick Odair. Sam is relatively new to Hollywood, though he's had roles in 'Snow White and the Huntsman' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'.

Bieber heads to Springfield: Justin Bieber risked the wrath of Fox bosses this week by telling Twitter followers he will be appearing on the next season The Simpsons! Details are being kept under wraps, though we're not sure we like the idea of the mischievous chart-topper teaming up with Bart Simpson.

Bill's Going Nowhere: Despite Facebook users' best efforts to kill him off, we were pleased to hear that Bill Cosby was alive and well this week. The comedy legend is probably getting pretty sick and tired of assuring his fans that he's still alive.

Sly's Still Got It: Big congratulations to Sylvester Stallone and his 'Expendables 2' team this week, after the action-romp retained its position at the top of the box office. The movies have triumphed against the odds to prove profitable, and a third flick is already being lined up.

Dear John: Katy Perry should have probably taken heed from Taylor Swift, after allegedly being dumped by John Mayer.

Dear John: Katy Perry should have probably taken heed from Taylor Swift, after allegedly being dumped by John Mayer. Is the blues musician's reputation as a serial lothario starting to impact on his career?

Here's Eddie! The Oscars should have been the making of Eddie Murphy's Hollywood comeback, though Brett Ratner spoilt all of that. Now, it looks as though Murphy is in talks to make a Beverly Hills Cop television show. If it works, great, if it doesn't, then we suspect Eddie might be out of ideas.

Video of the Week: This week's hottest footage comes from New York, where a gaunt looking Matthew McConaughey and his family head out to walk their dog and enjoy the sunshine. The Texan has lost a reported 30lbs for his role in forthcoming drama 'The Dallas Buyer's Club'
