Oprah has her eyes set on the Broadway stage… again! Word has it that Oprah is considering a revival of Marsha Norman’s Night, Mother in which she’d make her Main Stem debut. Miss Winfrey has already proven to be a theater box-office smash when she produced the 2005 musical The Color Purple. [Vulture]

After rumors that Vanity Fair was working on an “epic takedown” piece profiling Gwyneth Paltrow, editor in chief Graydon Carter released a letter earlier this week claiming they were doing no such thing. Loooks liek things are all well and good, Gwenyth was invited to the mag’s infamous Oscar Awards post-party. [E Online]

Attention comic book fans: Fox is bringing in the big guns to screen test for the Fantastic Four reboot next to Michael B. Jordan. Emmy Rossum and Kate Mara have auditioned for the part of the Invisible Woman, and That Awkward Moment star Miles Teller has tried out for the part of the group’s leader, Mr. Fantastic.

Have you missed Aaron Paul since the end of Breaking Bad? If so, you’re in luck. According to Deadline (via Vulture), Paul has been added to the crime drama Triple Nine along with Michael B. Jordan (there’s that name again), Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer and Michael Pena. The actors will be joining an already superb cast containing Casey Affleck, and Kate Winslet. [Vulture]

Another day, another Justin Beiber acting like a jerk story. Sigh. The Canadian pop singer and his father were apparently not the greatest of guests on a flight to the Super Bowl over the weekend. The father and son duo, along with their friends, were reportedly unbelievably rude to the flight attendant during the trip. The co-pilots were forced to wear oxygen masks in order to prevent themselves from inhaling the, er, pot smoke in the plane. [Huff Po]

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt apparently spared no expense on a romantic couples trip to Australia. The couple splurged on an $800 adults-only retreat after heading down under to finish up work on Angie’s film Unbroken. [Perez Hilton]
