William ShatnerTrek Fight! William Shatner calls director J.J. Abrams a franchise pig. “He’s gone too far this time!” says the first, make that second, James T. Kirk.

John Williams is planning on returning for new “Star Wars” movies. That’s good news. Can’t imagine “Star Wars” without his soundtrack.

This is cool. A real-life “Up” inspired hot air balloon. Don’t worry, though. Those aren’t just balloons on there. There’s actually a hot-air balloon underneath.

Keira Knightley’s Chanel ad is causing some uproar for being too sexy for kids. And yes, so are 90 percent of the ads on TV.

Steve Martin‘s a dad!  He and his wife, Anne Stringfield, 41, welcomed a child in December. Bet that’d be a fun household to grow up in.

Don’t forget: Starting today, PBS begins a week-long series on issues raised by December’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn., from the way schools treat mental health to the increase in requests for concealed weapon permits after the shooting.

Wonder what Dr. Seuss did before his drawings, books and stories became famous? He worked in the advertising industry. Thankfully, he doesn’t seem to have gone all Don Draper on us.
