New couple alert?
Rose Byrne and Boardwalk Empire's Bobby Cannavale clutched hands as they surreptitiously made their way through the crowd inside the Hall of Ocean Life at New York's American Museum of Natural History Monday night. Though the duo never posed for pictures together on the red carpet, they looked to be very much together and enjoying each other's company at a bash to celebrate IFC's hit comedy Portlandia's upcoming third season (Jan. 4, 10 p.m. ET). (When asked if they were dating, Byrne's rep had no comment.)
The soiree, which began with a screening of two upcoming episodes from the series and an introduction by its stars and writers, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, continued into the vast ocean-themed room, lined with hundreds of models of sea creatures and bathed purplish-blue lights as a 94 ft. long blue whale hung from the ceiling.
A who's who of the comedy world stars – Martin Short; David Cross and wife Amber Tamblyn; and most of the current cast of SNL – mingled in the large room, chatting with each other and with fans (there was no separate VIP section) and grabbing drinks from the large bar in the center of the room or nibbling passed Hors d'oeuvre such as bite-sized waffles with Camembert cheese.

It's la bella vita for Justin Timberlake and his bride-to-be Jessica Biel.
The happy couple have been celebrating in Italy along with close friends Andy Samberg, Timbaland and 7th Heaven's Beverly Mitchell in advance of their weekend wedding.
According to multiple reports and published photos, on Thursday, Timberlake and Biel hosted a party where guests hung out around open fires and dined on fresh-made cheese, local olives and wine.
Shots of the occasion snapped by Splash News show guests (including former SNL star Samberg) lounging outside on white furniture. According to E! Online, the pair were both casually dressed – Biel in pants and a beige top, and Timberlake in blue pants, a white shirt and a skinny tie.

Celebrities know they've made it big when they're mocked by a Saturday Night Live cast member, and Paul the Psychic Octopus was no exception.
Andy Samberg, who dressed up as an octopus and portrayed Paul as a boozy, cocky creature on the ESPY Awards, says it was his growing fame that contributed to Paul's demise this week.
"I'm greatly saddened by this news, but must quote Paul himself when he said, 'Mo' Money, Mo' Problems,'" a deadpan Samberg, who is an SNL cast member, tells PEOPLE. "In this case, the 'problem' is death."

The 2009 MTV Movie Awards never take themselves too seriously, but this year may be the funniest yet. Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg has been selected to host the show on May 31.
Now in their 18th year, the MTV awards are well known for their zany film parodies and outrageous antics. (Remember Will Ferrell's liplock with Sacha Baron Cohen?) Samberg's comedic styles should be a nice match for the awards, which present golden popcorn trophies in unconventional categories such as "best villain," "best action sequence" and "best kiss."
"I'm super excited to host the movie awards," says Samberg. "I grew up watching the show and a lot of the past hosts are heroes of mine. Plus, my friends and I were writers for the show prior to working at SNL, so it will be a sweet and satisfying homecoming. I can't wait to act really important."

Shia LaBeouf and Andy Samberg are going where few have gone before in the promos for Saturday Night Live – the Rockefeller Center roof garden!
In one of the three promos, LaBeouf, this week's host, plays in the bushes with the SNL regular ("You're welcome" for the tour, they proclaim).
And in another, Samberg even busts out his whip for a cute Harrison Ford impression and obvious plug for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which stars LaBeouf and hits theaters May 22.
The musical guest is My Morning Jacket – not My Night Jacket, which according to the last promo might make LaBeouf's brain explode.

He's under house arrest in Atlanta awaiting trial on weapons charges, but rapper T.I. got good news from a federal magistrate judge on Thursday: He can leave the house ... to go to church. The rapper (real name: Clifford Harris) can attend Easter services at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. No word, though, if he can squeeze in a brunch or an egg hunt during his five-plus hours of freedom.
