Ed Harris has been cast as John McCain in Game Change, HBO's retelling of the 2008 presidential campaign, based on the book by the same name,

Harris, a four-time Oscar nominee, will join Julianne Moore, who was already picked to play Sarah Palin, McCain's running mate in their 2008 bid.

The producers have not yet revealed who will play Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, three other big players in the historic campaign.

What do you think? Will Ed Harris make a good McCain?

While Harris, 60, is a bit younger than McCain, 74, he's definitely got the acting chops. We can see him embodying McCain's gritty, maverick persona quite easily.

Harris and Moore will be a talented pair to watch as the unsuccessful GOP running mates. It will be interesting to see who they're matched up against in the film.

Who do you think should play now-President Obama? If you asked Donald Trump, he'd probably recommend an actor who won't show his birth certificate.

What does the immediate future hold for Robert Pattinson? The actor will share the big screen with Reese Witherspoon in the highly-anticipated movie version of Water for Elephants. It comes out on April 22.

But what does the longer term future hold? In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, Rob is asked what kind of projects he has in mind beyond the Twilight Saga. It's hard to say, he responds.

Popular Guy

“You can never really predict what an audience wants or how to maintain a career, other than doing what you think is cool. Generally, what I think is cool is what everyone else hates.”

For more on Water for Elephants and the carers of its stars, pick up this week's issue of EW.

Chris Brown made headlines this week, and not strictly for the release of his new album, F.A.M.E. He may have even more enemies to forgive at this point.

The star exploded on Good Morning America followed a tense on-air chat with Robin Roberts, reportedly smashing a dressing room window and storming out.

During a Wednesday appearance on the BET video show 106 and Park, Brown made his first public comment on the incident, offering this apology:

Easy, Breezy

"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions."

Brown added: "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."

Brown says he was "thrown off" by Robin's line of questioning, and said that he feels she only brought up the Rihanna incident in an effort to "exploit me."

The singer says he did in fact explode backstage "to release the anger that I had inside me," but added that "I got very emotional and I apologize for that."

Dinner's ready! Welcome home! You gotta see this!

These things are acceptable to run into a room and yell. Other things? Not so much. In Tosh.0's recurring, viewer-submitted clip segment, some examples of things NOT to run into a room and yell are hilariously documented.

Nudity, wire hangers, 9/11, Gmail accounts ... nothing is off limits:

Ashley Greene doesn't want to talk about her split with Joe Jonas.

Because she was so hurt by the adorable singer? Perhaps. Or maybe because she's already moved on from him.

Earlier this week, Greene was spotted at Hollywood club Trousdale and, according to an onlooker, "was all over [Chris Evans]." That movie star's reaction, this witness adds: "He certainly didn't mind."

The Twilight Saga actress and the new Captain America - watch the trailer HERE - were spending time at Frankie Delgado's table when they weren't grinding up on one another.

"They were dancing together very closely," says an E! News source. "It looked like they had a lot of sexual chemistry."

Hours after Lindsay Lohan nixed a plea deal that would have ended her felony theft case with a light sentence, her lawyer was talking a good game.

On Wednesday, Shawn Chapman Holley proclaimed her embattled client's innocence and declared that the train wreck will be acquitted by a jury.

"Ms. Lohan has maintained her innocence from the moment this case was filed and she has never wavered from that," Holley said in a statement.

EFF A PLEA DEAL! Lindsay Lohan's will roll the dice at trial.

"Although many people advised her to follow the safe route by taking 'the deal,' the truth is, Ms. Lohan is innocent; she has a strong defense."

"We are confident a jury will listen to the evidence fairly and acquit her."

Holley formally notified the DA that Lindsay wasn't going to be accepting a plea deal that would include jail time and opted to go to trial.

Only 16 years old, Thia Megia was born a full generation after the end of Motown.

But that didn't stop this talented crooner from showing off a bit of rhythm and belting out Martha and the Vandellas' "(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave" on last night's American Idol performance show.

What is the best audition of the evening? No, we'd give that honor to Jacob Lusk or James Durbin. But it was a different type of song for Thia, who proved her versatility a bit, as Jennifer Lopez said: "I feel like we're scratching the surface with you a little bit."

Who needs a stage?

Lauren Alaina quickly abandoned it this week, sauntering around to the audience and singing her cover of a Supremes single ("You Keep Me Hangin' On") directly to the judges at times.

The county twang in Lauren's voice goes well with this Motown selection, as Randy offered up nothing but praise to the young contestant: "She's now got her swagger on. She's ready! She's ready!"

Jury selection gets underway this week in the manslaughter case involving Michael Jackson's death, and Dr. Conrad Murray is targeting responsible people.

What we mean by that is 12 men and/or women who take responsibility for their actions. Reading between the lines a bit - less likely to scapegoat others.

A big part of Dr. Murray's defense is that Michael was a hard-core addict who hid his dependence, thus absolving Murray of blame for what happened.

Dr. Conrad Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter.

One of the more revealing questionnaire items: "Do you believe patients have the responsibility to tell their doctors about their complete past and current social behaviors, including use of drugs, alcohol and prescription medications?"

Murray may also contend that Jackson killed himself with the final, lethal dose of Propofol, but it's interesting that he's playing up MJ's past as well.

Other questions focus on what people think of the case:

Make it your own. Do something unique. Put a fresh twist on it.

How often have we heard American Idol judges utter these words to contestants over the years? Considering such requests, Naima Adedapo put on one of the most impressive performance of last night with "Dancing in the Streets."

She incorporated horns and percussion instruments and broke it down at one point with her own style of moving and shaking. There was a tribal element to the rendition, helping it stand out and leading to the following critique from Randy:

"Finally, tonight, all of Naima showed up - the girl that loves all the African dance... the reggae girl... the singing. Everything was very smart that you did."

Do you agree?
