T.I. Sentenced to 366 Days in the Slammer

Rapper T.I. was sentenced to one year and one day in a Georgia prison as part of his plea deal with prosecutors over a 2007 felony weapons charge.

The Grammy-winning hip-hop star was accompanied by his family, manager and longtime partner Tameka Cottle (a.k.a. Tiny Cottle) at the morning hearing.

Under the terms of a deal brokered last March, T.I. pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge and agreed to complete 1,000 hours of community service prior to his sentencing and pay a $100,000 fine in exchange for a relatively light sentence.

He must do another 500 hours of community service after getting sprung.

The 28-year-old T.I. (real name is Clifford Harris Jr.), is required to turn himself to prison within the next 60 days, but is not expected do so before May 19.

Northern Georgia District Judge Charles Pannell Jr., who praised the artist for exceeding the expectations required from his plea deal, acknowledged that T.I. had commitments that prevented him from being jailed before the May date.

"Today I would like to say thank you to some, and apologize to all," said the rapper, who will serve his time at a penitentiary to be named later.

T.I. was arrested on October 13, 2007, just before the BET Hip-Hop Awards after cops caught him trying to buy unregistered machine guns and silencers.

Couldn't make time for criminal behavior on a day he wasn't performing, apparently. Makes Chris Brown's pre-Grammys walloping of Rihanna seem tame.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a Father!
Four years later!

Former Grey's Anatomy guest star Jeffrey Dean Morgan recently found out that he has a child with actress-producer Sherrie Rose, according to Us Weekly.

"Yes, I have a 4-year-old son with Jeffrey," Rose confirmed to Us.

The actor reportedly had no clue until this celeb gossip report broke today. Kind of a d!ck move by Sherrie Rose in that case, no? What gives, lady?

A source said the Watchmen star learned of the boy a few weeks ago and has since met him: "He's shocked and surprised, but he wants to be in the child's life."

Rose is an ex-girlfriend of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who is also known, gossip-wise, for his longtime relationship with his former fiancee, Mary-Louise Parker.

They began dating in 2006 after meeting on her hit Showtime series, Weeds, where he played her late husband, but she called off their engagement in 2008.

WB planning new Tomb Raider reboot
Posted in: Movie News

We reported yesterday how Megan Fox may be being lined up to play Lara Croft in a new TOMB RAIDER movie. Well, those rumours have not been confirmed, but today The Hollywood Reporter has said that there will be a new TR movie, and it will be a reboot ala the recent Batman/ Bond movies etc.

The trade says that Warners Bros. and producer Dan Lin are in early development on a new flick, which will revamp the character and her mission and bear very little resemblance to the original pictures, which were made by Paramount. It will reimagine the origins of the character, her love interest and the main villain, according to THR.

The original Angelina Jolie starrer in 2001 made $275 million worldwide, while the 2003 follow-up earned a more modest $157 million.

There was no mention as to who will don the mini-shorts and tight top though.

Fox hire Carnahan and Scotts for A-Team film
Posted in: Movie News

Twentieth Century Fox have hired SMOKIN' ACES writer/ director and Ridley Scott and brother Tony Scott as executive producer and producer for the planned big-screen film THE A-TEAM, based on the original 1980s TV show of the same name.

Stephen J. Cannell, who created the original TV series, will also produce the film.

Carnahan will polish the script by Skip Woods with Brian Bloom.

Variety says that the intention is to start production by June for a June 11, 2010, release. It said that the Middle East will replace Vietnam as the place the four did their tour of duty, but Carnahan said the origin story is the jumping-off point.

"You can ... make a film that reflects on the real world without losing the great sense of fun and the velocity of action in a classic summer popcorn film," Carnahan said.

"Tony and I feel that marrying this Scott Free project with Joe's sensibility will result in a fast-paced, exciting franchise, one we hope will be around for years to come," Ridley Scott said to the trade.
