Bourne Again!

If you're a fan of the Bourne trilogy - the three thrillers starring Matt Damon as the reawakened spy and assassin Jason Bourne - you are going to be delighted to read this news.

There are strong rumors that Matt's in development talks with Universal to bring the character back to the big screen.

Two years ago, the studio tried a spin-off - the underwhelming Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner.

Paul Greengrass, who wrote the second and third installments in the Bourne trilogy, is part of the team, set to write the script and direct the film.

Keep your fingers crossed, gang. This could be big.

Bey & Jay or Bonnie & Clyde?

Beyonce and Jay Z have wrapped up their On The Run Tour, so now they're releasing a series of three short films titled "Bang Bang." The first one came out yesterday.

If you saw the tour in person, you've already seen the three films strung together. If not (like most of us!), the three shorts are meant to pique our interest ahead of HBO's release of the On The Run concert film on September 20.

If nothing else, these two are brilliant marketers.

As for the short... Well, there's no dialogue. It's shot in black-and-white. Somebody shoots a mailbox, Jay Z puts his cigar out in a diner patron's hamburger. And Beyonce sort of looks like Faye Dunaway in a couple of shots. Oh, and the background music sounds like a Clint Eastwood spaghetti western.

Don't expect any Oscars for this one. But it will do the trick - keeping people talking about BeyZee.

Maybe She Should Glue It On

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg got married just a bit more than two weeks ago, and already, Jenny says she lost her wedding ring.

She visited Good Day NY yesterday and explained that she and her hubby had been in a hotel room and she had to remove the ring.

"It’s a little hard to get romantic with diamonds on your hand," Jenny said.

So she took it off and put it on the room service table. When room service came back, they collected the tray and now the ring is gone.

No word on whether she and Donnie were still in the bed when the ring and dirty dishes were collected.

But, she's not horribly upset. "If you’re gonna lose your wedding ring, you should lose it that way."

No one's seen Donnie in a while. I wonder if he's scouring the dumpsters at the hotel?

Big Time Pick Me Up

Okay, you're feeling a little low.

Work's got you down, it's the middle of the week, the weekend's in sight, but still...

You sure could use a little pick-me-up.

All you need is a big ol' dog, a garden hose and little girl with a tremendous laugh.

Play this video clip once, twice, three times - as many times as you need. It won't be long before you're smiling and ready to face the rest of the day, the rest of the week, the rest of the month.

If it doesn't work, have someone check your pulse...

Welcome Back, Babs

It's been over 50 years since singing legend Barbra Streisand has made an appearance on an American talk show. So it makes perfect sense that Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show turned the entire show over to her on Monday night.

Barbra was promoting her new album, "Partners," which was released commercially yesterday. It features Babs singing with other legends like Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Michael Buble, and thanks to some major studio magic, Elvis Presley.

None of them were available to sing with her on The Tonight Show, so Jimmy stepped in...

His Elvis needs a little work, his Blake Shelton sort of worked, and his Buble was passable, especially at the end.

But Babs was spectacular. Here's hoping she doesn't wait another 50 years to return.

Closed Captioning for the "I Don't Get Its," Perhaps?

Sometimes, it's not really clear what Elisabeth Hasselbeck is thinking...

In a tweet yesterday, she managed to wrap three scandals together: the one involivng Ray Rice and the NFL; the one involving the assualt on the US Embassy in Benghazi; and the one involving the IRS's alleged targeting of conservative groups. Is she suggesting that people are not calling for transparecny in all three? Or that people who are complaining about the NFL have more power than the others?

Or maybe she's just playing that game they used to play on Sesame Street: "One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong Here."

And in this case, maybe it's Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Rhapsody, or Not?

It's always risky to produce a cover version of a classic song.

Even more risky when the tune has achieved iconic status, like Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

It's one of those songs where just about everyone knows every note and every bit of lyric.

So why would a rock group like Panic! At The Disco take the chance? And a live version to boot.

One critic says that the lead singer's "voice is perfectly suitable for the journey of this great song."

What do you think? Does this live up to Freddie Mercury?

New View Coming Up

Season 18 of The View started up yesterday - did you catch it?

Whoopi Goldberg returns. Rosie O'Donnell is back - despite quitting the show seven years ago and vowing never to return. Actress Rosie Perez joined the team. And the fourth member, also new to the show, is conservative political commentator Nicolle Wallace.

You'll remember at the end of season 17, hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy were unceremoniously wheeled out the door. And the show's creator, Barbara Walters, retired over the summer.

The first show, from all reports, had all the elements of a shaky shakedown cruise. Let's see if the boat will stay afloat...

"It's the Things We Love Most... That Destroy Us"

The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was released yesterday in advance of the film's November 21 opening.

Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss Everdeen, along with Donald Sutherland as President Snow. In this one, Katniss is the Mockingjay, the symbol of revolution against the Capitol.

Also featured in this new movie: Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore and the recently departed Philip Seymour Hoffman.

He passed away before filming was complete for Part 2, so it will be interesting to see what producers do with his role.

Meanwhile, check out the trailer.
