Alec Baldwin May Have Slapped, Not Punched Man Over Parking Spot -
Alec Baldwin’s denial about punching his alleged victim during an argument over a parking space last week may be accurate.
TMZ reports law enforcement officials say the male driver, who took Baldwin's spot, told cops the actor struck him with his hand. Officials say that is more consistent with a slap and not a punch, as had been reported.
If it was a slap, it might not be considered assault if the two men were in a shoving match, which means Baldwin wouldn’t be charged at all.
Rick Grimes isn’t gone, after all. Producers say Andrew Lincoln will be back in the role for a series of three Walking Dead movies on the horizon.
Shaquille O’Neal and Ken Jeong will team up for the unscripted TBS series Unqualified. It will see the odd pair try out a variety of odd jobs, like patrolling malls as rent-a-cops, substitute teaching kindergarten, train conducting and performing as party clowns.
Greg Kinnear is in talks to star in the latest remake of War of the Worlds, which Fox will produce in Europe.
Anika Noni Rose has signed on to star in Beast Mode, a TNT pilot based on the life of legendary boxing trainer Ann Wolfe.
Kitty O'Neil, a deaf Hollywood stuntwoman who doubled for Lynda Carter on Wonder Woman and set a land-speed record as the fastest female driver ever, has died at a hospital near her South Dakota home. She was 72.
