Jenna Fischer & Lee Kirk Look 'Smitten' in New York

Originally posted 07/16/2013 06:50PM

Jenna Fischer and her husband Lee Kirk are relatively new parents (to 22-month-old son, Weston), so it was a luxury to spend a night out in New York City Monday.

The pair attended a special screening of Girl Most Likely (starring Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening), hosted by The Cinema Society and Brooks Brothers. Afterwards, the couple headed over – along with much of the cast – to a rooftop party at Hotel Americano.

“They were adorable,” says an onlooker. While guests sipped Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, “Jenna munched on a beef slider, and Lee stayed close to her most of the night. They were laughing and smiling,” as they mingled with other celeb guests.

The Twilight Saga might be coming to a close, but Robert Pattinson's career continues to make headlines.

Deadline confirmed that Pattinson will star opposite Carey Mulligan in Hold On To Me, the inspired-by-true-events story of a kidnapping gone wrong directed by James Marsh (who won Oscars for his films Man On Wire and Project Nim). The steamy crime drama follows a couple who kidnap the richest man in town for ransom and bury him.

Glee and Gossip Girl also announced a slew of cameos, while Aaron Paul secured a very different film role for the Breaking Bad star.

Keep up with who has been cast below:

Originally posted 09/22/2012 04:30PM

Only the accountants at Ernst & Young – the official vote-counters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – know who will take home an Emmy during Sunday's ceremony.

Until then it's anyone's guess. But we can tell you which Emmy nominees are getting the most buzz among 170.89 million Facebook users in the U.S.

Based on the number of "Likes" and the number of mentions on the social networking site, it seems Sofia Vergara is a fan favorite. The Modern Family star leads over Kristen Wiig, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Merritt Wever and Kathryn Joosten for the supporting comedy actress category.

That's one full house!

The Soho House celebrated the second day of the Toronto Film Festival on Friday with parties for Imogene, The Master and Anna Karenina.

Trudie Styler was one of the first guests to arrive. Wearing a white dress, Styler – who co-produced Imogene – sipped on a Grey Goose Le Fizz cocktail and happily greeted Kristen Wiig and Darren Criss, who star in the film.

Upstairs, The Master star Amy Adams arrived in an elegant black dress and spent most of the party chatting with guests.

Julianne Moore was also spotted mingling with guests and relaxing after a busy day of festival activities.

Meanwhile at the Anna Karenina bash, Keira Knightley – who wore a black Elie Saab Haute Couture gown – spent most of the evening talking with costar Aaron Johnson and his wife, filmmaker Sam Taylor Wood.



Nearby, Jude Law enjoyed a Grey Goose cocktail as he laughed with friends.

On Saturday, Soho House hosted an event following the premiere of Silver Linings Playbook: The film's star Bradley Cooper held court on a corner couch, snacking and chatting with other guests.

Chris O'Dowd and new wife, Dawn Porter were also in attendance and enjoyed seafood salads, meatballs and other light fare.

Woody Harrelson happily posed for photos with fans, while Alexander Skarsgard enjoyed a beer with female friend.

Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul – in town to promote Smashed – also made the scene, chatting with fans and fellow stars alike. He even recounted when he and fiancé Lauren Parsekian saw Sally Field on a recent flight and "were completely starstruck," says a source. "But she had the same reaction toward him!" Who wouldn't?

Also in the club: Happy couple Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, who hung out with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. And Glee star Chord Overstreet, who was sporting a hat, chatted up Krasinski a bit.
