1. Billie Joe Armstrong would like for “that kid in Twilight,” aka Robert Pattinson, to star in the upcoming film adaptation of Green Day’s Broadway musical, American Idiot. “He’s a good actor,” he told Perez Hilton. “There’s still more to come with that kid.” Right. We’re sure that his rabid teenage girl fan-base has nothing to do with it. [via NME]
2. The producers of My So-Called Life have sold a new hour-long drama to Fox that’s called Confessions of a Contractor and is described as “an alternative soap that focuses on what happens when you mix desire, jealousy, and home renovation.” Yuck. [via THR]
3. Perhaps hoping to compete with NBC’s upcoming show with Snoop Dogg, CBS has signed a deal with Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst to star in a new sitcom. The show, which Durst also plans to produce, “centers around a rock legend looking for balance between his high profile lifestyle and trying to raise a family.” Double yuck. [via Deadline]
4. Lady Gaga has won a lawsuit against animated singer Lady Goo Goo, a character from the kid’s game Moshi Monsters known for posting parody performances of Gaga’s songs, such as “Peppy-razzi,” on YouTube. [via Guardian]
5. Hulu is no longer for sale. The reason? As Vulture explains, potential buyers like Yahoo, Google, and Apple were understandably uncomfortable with shelling out $1 billion when the site couldn’t guarantee long-term rights to its current lineup of TV shows.
