Hayden Panettiere May Love You: Hayden Panettiere will not especially stretch in her first bid for big-screen stardom in I Love You, Beth Cooper, for which she’s in talks to play a cheerleader who is drawn into misadventures after the school nerd proclaims his love for her in his valedictorian speech. (Chris Columbus may direct.) We truly hope this will be released the same weekend as I Love You, Phillip Morris. [Variety]

Rebeck Burns Down Our House: Fresh from ripping the scab off the festering world of stamp collecting in her recent Broadway debut Mauritius, Theresa Rebeck gets really dangerous with Our House, which opens this month at the Denver Center Theater Company under the direction of Daniel Fish and is described as — wait for it — a “satiric skewering of reality television.” Get the pitchforks and torches, she's satirizing reality television!
