It was a week for jumping right in and getting to work, wherever it had to happen. Ashton Kutcher splashed around a swimming pool on the set of his new movie. Craig Bierko drew a bath — yes, a bath — for John Malkovich. And Jay-Z, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and David Schwimmer all stayed dry while they soaked up a busy slate of concerts, panels, and screenings.
In an exclusive peek at D.J. Caruso’s Sept. 26 thriller Eagle Eye, a slacker (Shia LaBeouf) and a single mom (Michelle Monaghan) come together after a stranger blackmails them. ”They’re involved in a big conspiracy,” says executive producer Alex Kurtzman. ”It’ll keep you guessing till the last frame.”
The One Where Ross Directed
Four years after saying goodbye to his Friends, David Schwimmer arrives at a March 20 screening of his feature directorial debut, Run Fat Boy Run, in Manhattan. He’s joined by Fat Boy star Thandie Newton, a strangely placed scarf, and a lot of facial hair.
Web Obsession of the Week
Rub-a-dub-dub, there’s a two-time Oscar nominee in your tub! Craig Bierko (Fox’s Unhitched) has launched a new Web talk show in which he interviews and bathes with celebrities, like John Malkovich. Lathering Malkovich with a sponge, Bierko grills him on hot topics like Portugal and McDonald’s. And if it all sounds ridiculously awkward to you, well, that’s because it is. (superdeluxe.com)
