[YOUTUBE "imW392e6XR0"] Jimmy Kimmel brought back his fantastic Celebrities Read Mean Tweets About Themselves segment Wednesday night, with a shocking twist. This time, a surprising number of the mean Tweets were actually ... good?
Sure, there were the requisite amounts of unfathomable abuse – why does Andy Garcia, of all people, have haters? – and impenetrable obscenities (particularly the ones aimed at Matthew McConaughey). But other Tweets showed a heretofore-unobserved level of wit that made their targets suppress a chuckle. Even David Blaine thought that David Blaine joke was pretty solid!

Don Cheadle is set to star in and direct the long-awaited biopic of legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, Kill the Trumpet Player. We're thrilled about this casting choice. Cheadle is an amazing actor and will likely bring just the right note of smoky intensity to the role. Not to mention he really – almost shockingly – looks like Miles Davis.
Though not the first time Hollywood's nailed the casting of a legend, it's still fairly rare for industry insiders and fans to agree. Here are four more biopic stars we thought were eerily appropriate lead choices.

House of Lies's Kristen Bell and Don Cheadle want fans to know the truth: that they're alive and well.
The stars have taken to Twitter to assure folks that they're safe after a report surfaced claiming that gunfire broke out at a Los Angeles location where the Showtime series was shooting.
According to TMZ, the show was filming at a housing project in South Central Los Angeles Friday when shots were fired, the result of an alleged gang-related incident.

He's one popular birthday boy!
Ellen DeGeneres, Ben Stiller, Jimmy Kimmel, Tobey Maguire, Laura Dern, John Krasinski, Don Cheadle, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Isla Fisher, Samantha Ronson, Will Arnett, Malin Ackerman and Dax Shepard were among the celebs who headed to Jennifer Aniston's Bel Air mansion Saturday night as the actress threw her fiancé, Justin Theroux, a 42nd birthday bash.
The party also took place on the one-year anniversary of the couple's engagement. Though the party sparked rumors of a possible surprise wedding, guests dressed down and the atmosphere was casual.

A megalomaniacal terrorist unleashes a rash of bombings across the United States. Innocent people die. A nation reels in horror. No, these aren’t the latest headlines – they're the set-up of the latest Iron Man movie, already igniting controversy.
For some viewers, that plotline about a terrorist known as The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) cuts too closely to the Boston Marathon bombing allegedly carried out by the Tsarnaev brothers earlier this month. It certainly caused a hush to fall over the crowd at the film's glitzy Los Angeles premiere at the El Capitan Theatre last week.
The film's stars addressed the issue at a press conference last week, with Don Cheadle (who plays Col. James Rhodes) stressing that the film was finished well before the bombings earlier this month, and that there is no political agenda.
"The job of this film is to entertain," he said. "That's what we're hoping to do."

The film KONY 2012 premiered Monday March 5, at 12 p.m. PST. By noon Thursday, more than 35 million views had registered on YouTube.
With the help of Facebook and Twitter, Jason Russell's documentary has even captured the attention of celebrities including Ryan Gosling, Rihanna, Oprah and Justin Bieber.
The slickly produced 30-minute video follows Russell's efforts since 2006 to raise awareness around the world about Uganda's guerrilla leader Joseph Kony, whose terrifying actions have landed him the top spot of the International Criminal Court's most wanted list. Kony's rebel group has kidnapped thousands of children, turning the boys into child soldiers and the girls into sex slaves.
In a determination to "make Kony a household name," so that Uganda military can find and arrest him, Russell has met with key politicians and his Invisible Children campaign has targeted 20 "culture-makers," including Tim Tebow, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Seacrest and Taylor Swift.

Don Cheadle was honored at the Los Angeles Film Festival Sunday night by actress Halle Berry, who gave a personal – and informative – speech about her fellow actor.
After congratulating Cheadle, 43, whom she affectionately calls "Che Che," on receiving the Spirit of Independence Award, Berry coyly told the audience which included Jennifer Beals, Julia Nixon, Illeanna Douglas, and Loretta Devine: "I'm here to tell you tonight what you don’t know about Don Cheadle."
In Halle Berry's own words, here are some fun facts about the Hotel Rwanda actor:
