''Pleasantville,'' Men of the Year Awards, and more are happening this week
Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire will attend the L.A. premiere of Pleasantville, about two teens getting sucked into a TV show. Too bad it’s South Park.

In Toronto, Alanis Morissette winds up a 12-city mini-tour to launch her new album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (out in stores Nov. 3).
