Yes, Hollywood’s writers have gone on strike, and some of your favorite TV shows have stopped production. But it’s not the end of entertainment: There’s a new dose of Oprah on YouTube…Jennifer Garner and Kevin Kline on Broadway…and once again, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on a red carpet!

Walking the Line
A new adventure for Julia Louis-Dreyfus: joining the Writers Guild of America picket line outside Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank on Nov. 5. Click on the link for full strike coverage.

They Don’t Do Teeth
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie make a rare appearance — in Los Angeles, that is — to celebrate the premiere of her latest, Beowulf.

Web Obsession of the Week
Oprah Winfrey’s new YouTube channel features footage shot by Winfrey on the official ”Oprah Cam.” Because we all need to see the world’s most influential woman wish guest Tyson the Skateboarding Bulldog a happy birthday backstage — six times. (

There You Are
We’re always happy to print a Sarah Michelle Gellar quote, and an AFI Fest screening of her new film, Southland Tales, (Southland Tales) gave us the perfect excuse: ”It’s very cold tonight. Good thing I got to know Dwayne on the film, because there is no quicker way to warm up than huddle close to The Rock.” (on the advantages of costarring with Dwayne ”The Rock” Johnson in Southland Tales)

Over You?
The face screams rock & roll. The heart-shaped pendant? Not so much. Chris Daughtry flashed devil horns at the 2007 MTV Europe Music Awards but left Munich empty-handed.

Jack Blond
Margot at the Wedding star Black has lightened up for Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder. We like!

Alias: Roxane
Jennifer Garner remains the object of Kevin Kline’s affection during the curtain call for their opening night in Cyrano de Bergerac.
