Title: On the Set: Fringe's Final Hours

It's the end of the worlds as we know it. And all Fringe Division wants is soup.

"I swear I saw someone walking around with it!" says ­Jasika Nicole, bubbly and bundled up between takes while filming on a Vancouver lot. With a week left before wrapping Fringe's fifth and final season, the mood on this drizzly December afternoon is unexpectedly light. Especially for folks facing a string of long night shoots involving the ultimate battle between our ­heroes and their bald overlords, the Observers. "It's going to be big," says Anna Torv, whose Olivia Dunham is already bearing the bumps and ­bruises of the previous episode's action. "I'll be impressed if we can shoot it in the time allotted."

Kim Kardashian wants her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Kim Kardashian has some lofty goals.

The 31-year-old recently revealed to V magazine that she wants to see her name alongside some of Hollywood's legends.

“I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold," she told the magazine.

Well Kim can keep dreaming, according to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which is responsible for handing out stars to celebrities.

"She has not been nominated. She is a reality star. We don't do reality stars. She needs to get a real acting job then come to us," a rep for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce told Hollyscoop.

Kardashian does have some acting under her belt, having recently guest-starred on three episodes of "Drop Dead Diva," and she has a role in Tyler Perry's upcoming film, "The Marriage Counselor." But it's also important to note that the Hollywood Walk of Fame is not nearly as prestigious as the Chamber of Commerce would like people to believe.

Eye Color and the Perception of Beauty

About a year ago I came accross a striking image of Zoe Deschanel. What struck me most was the color of her eyes and how they seemed to disproportionally influence my perception of her beauty. Being a brown eyed person it made me wonder: How much does eye color really influence the perception of beauty? With that in mind I did a couple of manipulations, one of Zoe and the other of Meghan Fox. I posted this original image to Reddit and within hours it made it to the front page. The comments were fascinating and triggered many strong reactions.

Michael J. Fox to star in TV comedy as dad with Parkinson's

Actor Michael J. Fox, who stepped back from full-time acting in 2000 to focus on fighting Parkinson's disease, will star in a new TV comedy loosely based on his own life suffering from the illness.

NBC television said on Monday it had ordered a full 22 episodes of an untitled comedy series starring the "Spin City" and "Back to the Future" actor for the fall of 2013.

The show will feature Fox as a husband and father of three from New York City dealing with family, career, and challenges including the degenerative nervous system disorder, Parkinson's disease.

"He (Fox) is utterly relatable, optimistic, and in a class by himself, and I have no doubt that the character he will create - and the vivid family characters surrounding him - will be both instantly recognizable and hilarious," NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement.

Netflix and DirecTV want to continue The Killing

A month after AMC announced the cancellation of the whodunnit series just two seasons (and one murder) in, reports are emerging that two different companies are considering making a bid to bring the show back to life: DirecTV and Netflix. But why would anyone want to do that, exactly?

The Killing, which debuted on AMC amid much fanfare in 2011, is an American remake of a Dutch series titled Forbrydelsen(which translated, literally, as “The Crime”). The show centered around the investigation of one murder, that of Rosie Larson, a teenager whose body is found in the trunk of an abandoned car just outside Seattle, Washington, and followed the format of the Dutch original with each episode taking place in a roughly 24 hour period within the investigation (It alienated a number of its fanbase by not following another of the Dutch show’s conventions and wrapping very case up within a season at the most; when Larson’s killer wasn’t found by the end of the first season, there was considerable outcry amongst viewers). After debuting as AMC’s second-highest rated premiere behindThe Walking Dead (2.7 million viewers), ratings dipped throughout its two-season run until it was cancelled with a series low of 1.59 million viewers.
