Michael Jackson's daughter says she was inspired to be an actress after seeing her father in the film "Moonwalker." "My dad was in the movie 'Moonwalker' and I knew he could sing really well, but I didn't know he could act," Paris Jackson told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. "I saw that and I said, 'Wow, I want to be just like him.'" That's such a sweet sentiment, we're going to go ahead and ignore the implications of what being "just like" Michael Jackson would mean.The film featuring Jackson's signature dance move and other videos was released in 1988. Paris said her father encouraged her and did improvisation sessions to develop her skills. The 13-year-old has been cast alongside Larry King in a film based on a new children's book, "Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys," which is in early stages of development. Yes, that Larry King. We'll keep an open mind for the kid's sake, but it's probably no stretch to say this isn't going to be a Martin Scorsese project. UGG BootsThe wesbite IMDB shows the film is tentatively scheduled for a 2013 release. Paris also told DeGeneres about the lengths her father took to protect her identity. The interview is slated to air Thursday. She said her father protected her and her two brothers from the media by placing them in masks or dressing them in costumes when they were in public. She said she initially thought wearing the mask was stupid, but later came to realize that it was for her and her brothers' protection. And again, we'll cut her some slack and not mention the term "protection" and the words "dangling babies from balconies" in the same sentence. She said no one recognized her when she began attending school after her father's death in June 2009. "I was like, 'Yes, I have a chance to be normal,'" she said. Jackson's children have since been in the public eye, appearing onstage at their father's televised memorial service, the Grammy Awards and other television appearances. The last guy in Hollywood one would expect to be part of a reality show is ... wait for it ... getting himself a reality show.Well, sort of. If TMZ is to be believed, Clint Eastwood's extended family is going to let cameras follow them around, documenting their lives. Eastwood's wife Dina -- along with the couple's 15-year-old daughter Morgan and Clint's 18-year-old daughter Francesca-- are currently shooting a family-oriented reality series for E! UGG Boots AustraliaAllegedly, the same producers of "The Real World" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" are behind the project, which will focus largely on Francesca's aspirations of following in her parents' thespian footsteps. The story also says the man himself will pop up in an occasional cameo. Hey, maybe a cameraman will try following him somewhere he's not supposed to go and Clint will shoot him.The camera isn't completely foreign to the family, as Eastwood's oldest daughter Alison Eastwood, is an established film vet, doing work both as an actress and director.Lindsay Lohan showed up to court on Wednesday.On time.She didn't look disheveled.She didn't cry or offer bad excuses.And the judge told her she's doing well.No, really.What planet are we on? It's true. A judge offered Lohan something she's probably never really heard in a court room: praise. Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner said the actress was doing well under strict new terms of her probation and urged her to keep up the good work. This is weird. It's like up is down and the water is circling the drain counter clockwise. It's a good thing she didn't show up for her scheduled taping of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" the previous day or we'd think this is some sort of robot.Wait ... has anyone actually checked? The actress has completed 12 days at the county morgue and five therapy sessions since Nov. 2, when she was sentenced to a strict routine of community service and counseling after her latest probation violation. "You're doing well and I'd like to see it continue," Sautner said during a 10-minute status hearing. She also offered Lohan an incentive to succeed, saying the actress could take leisure trips outside California after she completes a dozen days of morgue work a month. The actress had permission from her probation officer to take a trip to Hawaii to celebrate her sister's birthday. She returned just hours before the hearing. Lohan, 25, has drawn the repeated ire of judges for failing to complete counseling sessions and community service assignments on time. Sautner made clear Wednesday that she believes Lohan's new schedule -- which requires the model and actress to appear in court monthly until March -- is the reason for the turnaround. The judge even hinted that Lohan might end her supervised probation early if she works harder. "Do more days a month and we can end this in February, possibly," Sautner said. C'mon, let's not get carried away. UGG Ultra Short BootsAssume there's still Lindsay Lohan DNA in there somewhere.The judge said Lohan should keep reporting to court in person to make sure she remains on track. "I think she likes to come see me," Sautner joked. "I think that's her motivation." Oh man -- now she's BFFs with the judge.Lohan appeared in court wearing brown slacks and a beige cardigan and found a smaller crowd of reporters than has chronicled the actress' court scoldings since she missed a hearing in May 2010. The last time she appeared in court without a probation compliance issue on the agenda was February 2010. Judges repeatedly sent her to jail and rehab since then, and Sautner said last month she was giving Lohan one final chance to end the court spectacle. The actress remains on probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor grand theft case filed after she took a $2,500 necklace without permission from a store. Her appearance Wednesday came days before a Playboy issue featuring Lohan in a mostly nude pictorial hits newsstands. Remember in "Star Wars," how they could erase a droid's memory if it knew things it shouldn't? How it would pretty much come back with the same personality without knowing Darth Vader was Luke's father? Let's get to wiping Mike Myers' memory. According to the New York Post's Page Six, Myers still has the bad case of brain lock that hasn't allowed him to come up with any new ideas the past decade or so, longer is you consider the third "Austin Powers" film was basically the equivalent of a once-great band releasing a record of boring outtakes. UGG Roxy Tall 5818Hopefully someone will stage an intervention before Myers' new plans for Austin Powers came come to fruition. Not only is he allegedly planning a fourth film, but he also wants to make an Austin Powers musical.A source close to 48-year-old Myers confirmed to Page Six, "Mike is in talks to turn 'Austin Powers' into a musical stage show. Mike would be heavily involved in writing the show, but he will not star in it, even though he has quite a good singing voice."It may be a better idea to start a band at 48 years old then to do anything else with Austin Powers - if no other reason than to keep thousands of grown men from again dressing up on Halloween and asking everyone within earshot whether they find them horny in atrocious bad accents.Yes, Monty Python did go back and make a great musical about a very funny movie years later. But they hadn't sullied that movie with a half-decent sequel, then a God-awful money grab of a second sequel. Please ... stop.
