Ian McKellen - Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings movies and Magneto from the X-Men movies - is setting his sights on a slightly less active character in his next film.

In Mr. Holmes, he plays the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes in his golden years.

Retired for 30 years and living quietly in the English countryside, Holmes gets distracted by an unsolved case, and is forced to remember why he retired three decades earlier.

It looks very interesting - a Holmes we've never seen.

Due out in theaters this summer... Check out the trailer.

Yesterday, we wrote about Robert Downey Jr's new promotion to raise money for Julia's House by offering to take a fan to the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Today, we're treated to a newly-released trailer for the film, giving us more of a glimpse into what's going on.

Looks like this is a classic evil spawned by good intentions tale - when Tony Stark's plan to shield the Earth goes awry.

I'm getting a little interested all of a sudden.

How about you?

So, do you remember the Hot Mugshot Guy?

Jeremy Meeks was arrested in Stockton, California last June on weapons charges. The PD at the time called him "one of the most violent criminals in the Stockton area."

His mugshot from that arrest went viral, and all of a sudden, in addition to being a felon, he was famous.

Last month, he was handed a 27-month prison sentence, and he says he's using his time creatively, planning for a post-release career in modeling and acting.

He says he's working with an agent, and he eats healthy too. "I do a lot of pushups, pull-ups, dips, burpees, and I stay very active."

By "very active," he means running away from other inmates, most likely...

Sharon Osbourne - mama to Kelly, wife to Ozzy, and host at The Talk - is not known for being quiet, shy and reclusive.

She's also a well-known and vocal opponent of real fur.

So she didn't pull any punches in a recent interview with Closer magazine where she called Kim Kardashian out.

Not only for wearing fur, but for accessorizing her 20-month-old daughter - North West - in fur and other outfits that aren't appropriate for a toddler.

On the subject of fur, it makes Sharon "physically sick" and she says that "wearing it is a very dated way of showing everyone how rich you are."

She says that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have asked the K-Klan to stop wearing fur.

And on the subject of little North, Sharon points out that she's not "an accessory - she shouldn't be wearing ugly couture clothes."

Ouch.

I wonder if Kim will fire back about Sharon's hair...

Three-quarters of the major players from Seinfeld - you remember, the show about nothing? - had a mini-reunion yesterday at the Palm Restaurant in Beverly Hills.

Jerry Seinfeld was hosting the first Los Angeles Fatherhood Lunch to Benefit Baby Buggy, a charity with which he's associated.

Two of his co-stars - Jason Alexander (George) and Michael Richards (Kramer) - were also on hand.

Looks like they had some fun while they raised some funds.

It's a Seinfeld reunion at #BabyBuggyFatherhood Fantastic event and charity. @LoveRecycled @esquirenetwork #CarMatchmaker

Chris Hemsworth will be hosting Saturday Night Live this Saturday night, and yesterday, SNL released some promo clips featuring him and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon.

At first, it was the classic girl-overwhelmed-by-hot-guy thing. But as the clips progressed, they got better, showing that Thor has a decent sense of humor.

Check them out - and check out SNL this Saturday at 11:30 to see if Thor can wield the Hammer of Humor for 90 minutes.

Conan O'Brien visited Jon Stewart and The Daily Show the other night, fresh from his recent trip to Cuba.

Conan was the first TV host and TV show to go to Cuba since the embargo was lifted.

"I thought this was my chance," said Conan. "I wanted to get in there ahead of The View gets down there..."

Conan talked about the experience, especially the delight he had watching The Gilmore Girls in Spanish.

Conan in Cuba airs tonight on TBS...

Robert Downey Jr - RDJ, as he's now calling himself - has gone viral with a new video, and it's pretty cool.

He's offering a fan and a guest the chance to spend some quality time with him in Hollywood, including attending the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

All you have to do is visit Omaze.com and donate a minimum of $10 to Julia's House, a hospice that helps terminally ill children and their parents.

It's a pretty amazing thing for RDJ to do...

Kelly Clarkson made some news a week or so ago when she said no one wanted to sing duets with her.

No one's quite sure why, but when she visited The Tonight Show this week, Jimmy Fallon stepped up and took Kelly's challenge.

They did a medley of duets, including Sonny & Cher's "I Got You, Babe," The Human League's "Don't You Want Me," and Elton John & Kiki Dee's "Don't Go Breaking My Heart."

They saved the best for last though, with a great rendition of Lionel Richie and Diana Ross' "Endless Love."

Check it out!

Country superstar Carrie Underwood welcomed her new little bundle of joy last Friday. Check out her tweet from yesterday... Back in December, she visited The Tonight Show and talked with Jimmy Fallon about the pressure she felt to sing properly all the time, even in the car, because the baby could hear every note.

Check it out for an overdose of cuteness!
