The highly anticipated Speed Racer movie hits theaters today. It stars Emile Hirsch who burst onto the scene with his role in Into The Wild. Also hittin’ the big screen today: What Happens In Vegas starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz playing a couple who drunkenly get married in Vegas. Now we all know how well that can work out, just look at Britney Spears. In the movie Ashton and Cameron are forced to co-exist when one wins a jackpot with the other’s quarter. Hilarity ensues. Or you can just see Iron Man again (in fact, many of you did!)

There’s been a pretty solid rumor flying around that ABC’s Ugly Betty will be moving production to New York City where the show is actually set, to take advantage of new tax credits. And taking a cue from the title character, this idea has turned ugly real quick. The 300 plus crew that works on the show in LA is inherently out of a job and so they took out a full page ad in today’s Variety asking California state lawmakers and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to quote “enact meaningful incentives to keep film and television production in our state.”

Even celebrities are suckers for reality TV. According to his girlfriend Sarah, George Clooney and her get completely suckered in to shows like Rock of Love on VH1. Sarah actually has experience in reality TV shows, she was a model in Fear Factor. Of George, Sarah says quote “He still wants to date me, and I ate a scorpion."
