Are more movie stars doing Broadway these days? It sure seems that way, with Katie Holmes, Tom Hanks, Jessica Chastain, Al Pacino, Henry Winkler, Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd taking to the stage recently.

We’ll add Scarlett Johansson into the mix. Here she is soaking up the applause Thursday following her opening night performance in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre.

  1. Dr. Drew Pinsky is having a heck of a time recruiting actual celebrities to star in a fourth season of his popular VH1 reality show “Celebrity Rehab.” In the past week alone, both Fergie (Duchess of York) and Liza Minnelli have either turned down offers to appear on the show or denied that they’ve even been approached. Ditto for Lindsay Lohan, who rebuffed an alleged $1 million offer weeks before she was ordered to wear a SCRAM alcoholmonitoring bracelet. Tila Tequila. So far, the cast is looking, well, a bit thin on star power. Tila Tequila has signed on to deal with an unspecified addiction (perhaps to Twitter?), habitual DUIer and former “Hills” cast member Jason Wahler is also in, along with Playboy playmate Shauna Sand and, allegedly as of this morning, Pointer Sister Bonnie Pointer. Has Dr. Drew exhausted Hollywood’s supply of chemicallyaddled celebs (and quasicelebs) or, after three. ET to add Pop Culture Mix. Celebrity Beat: Miley Cyrus simulates girlongirl kiss during “Britain’s Got Talent” performance. Gary Coleman’s parents seek custody of his remains; ex says she pulled the plug on life support because “he wouldn’t have made it anyway”. Betty White says Rue McClanahan’s death “hurts more than I ever thought”. Sean Penn says ex Robin Wright is “a ghost to me now”. LeAnn Rimes doesn’t regret affair with Eddie Cibrian. David Carradine’s widow suing film company for husband’s death. Fouryearold Suri Cruise has her own iPad. “Saved by the Bell’s” MarkPaul Gosselaar and wife split. How many Justin Biebers can you take in a fight? Crime Watch: Lindsay Lohan tested positive for cocaine at the time of her 2007 DUI arrest (but has passed two recent drug tests). Rumor Mill: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt laughing over “fake” split, claims pal. Dad. (Summit Entertainment) The MTV Movie Awards or as I like to call them, the Oscars for Hot Topic Shoppers are this Sunday night, which means that film lovers everywhere are currently agonizing over their predictions in the hopes of winning big in their office MTV Movie Award pools. Wait, they aren’t? Okay, fine, so the MTV Movie Awards are actually nothing more than a silly summertime diversion that gives studios the opportunity to push their latest projects directly in front of the faces of anyone who falls into their hip, young target demographic. Still, give some credit to MTV for doling out high honors in categories most trophy shows don’t dare to touch; I mean, would the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences ever have the guts to poll its members in.
