So, whatever happened to those other ‘Dragon Tattoo’ movies? — There's a new book in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series coming in August, and we couldn't be more excited. Sadly, it's not written by the author of the original Millennium trilogy ( the late Stieg Larsson), but any excuse to spend more time with the computer-hacking, frozen pizza-eating Lisbeth Salander is fine by us.

DailyDish: ‘Grey’s’, ‘Scandal,’ ‘Murder’ FINALLY return (Thanks, Shonda!) — We waited patiently for two long months, and finally #TGIT is back and all is right with the world. To get properly caught up on where things stand with all of our shows, consult our handy recap guide, but be warned: Shonda Rhimes has news about Scandal.

Did ‘Ghostbusters 3′ director just reveal the cast? — Ghostbusters 3 director Paul Feig has talked about casting an all-female crew for his franchise reboot. But who's he gonna call? Just the funniest women Hollywood. Feig apparently just shared his casting choice on Twitter: Feig already directed Wiig and McCarthy in Bridesmaids. SNL's McKinnon and Jones help make for a well-rounded quartet.

Meet the size-22 model who just signed with a major agency — Model Tess Holliday just went from small-town girl to fashion-world big deal. Tess, a 29-year-old Mississippi native, signed a contract with British modeling agency MiLK Management and tells People that her success comes after years of bullying and self-doubt. It's something that I've wanted my whole life, so to even think that it's happened, it feels like an out-of-body experience.

Burn! Gayle King slams ‘O’ magazine co-workers for staying home on snow day

Tracee Ellis Ross: Wearing Spanx is the worst! — We think Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross is pretty much perfect as is, but in Hollywood, there's perfect and then there's perfect-perfect. But, Ross tells The New York Times that she's not fazed by the pressure to be supermodel-ready at all times. I just really strongly promote pushing against this culture of perfection.

Whoa! You’ve gotta see Kate Middleton’s EPIC tabloid Photoshop fail — When will tabloid photo editors learn that Photoshop should be used in moderation, if at all? When?! The latest victim of wrong-headed, heavy-handed image manipulation is the duchess herself, Kate Middleton. For some reason, Australia's Woman's Day mag thought it would be a good idea to turn Kate's creamy complexion into a dusty disaster.

There’s a stunt guy in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ named Groot — (elpollodelamuerte/Tumblr) We know, we know, the big Marvel tree creature is Groot. But we recently learned (because we accidentally fell down a IMDb black hole last week) that there was actually a real, human Groot on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy. Mr. Groot was the stunt double for Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer).

‘Bachelor’ Week 4: Mud, a camping virgin and Cinderella — Farmer Chris had his Bachelor work cut out for him this week. He started the night with 15 women and ended it with 11. Here are the top five highlights: This group date was fun for only one woman - Jillian, the physically fit, muscle-pumped news producer from Washington.

Johnny, where are you?! Depp flees the USA after ‘Mortdecai’ bombs BIG — Johnny Depp can run, but he can't hide from the epic fail that is Mortdecai. His latest bomb only pulled in $4.1 million at the box office over the weekend, and he's already booked it out of the United States. Thing is, he's not exactly escaping the problem ...
