Photo by Ben Pruchnie/Getty Images(LONDON) -- J.K. Rowling wants to make amends for one Harry Potter character's death -- Fred Weasley.

Over the weekend, she tweeted, "Today I would just like to say: I'm really sorry about Fred. *Bows head in acceptance of your reasonable ire*"

She added, "I thought I might apologise for one death per anniversary. Fred was the worst for me, so I started with him."

Fred died towards the end of the series during the battle at Hogwarts.

What about Dobby?

Rowling also addressed a fan when they asked "what would you say to someone who has failed to find meaning and wants to finally give up?"

John Fleenor/ABC(NEW YORK) -- Could this be the start of Carly Rae Jepsen’s television acting career?

The singer will guest star as herself on an episode of Castle.

In the episode titled “Dead From New York,” Rick Castle and Kate Beckett are called in to investigate the murder of the creator of a long-running sketch comedy show called "Saturday Night Tonight."

Jepsen, who made her Saturday Night Live debut last month, will appear as the musical guest on the Castle version of the show.

She’ll be singing her new song, “I Really Like You,” and also will have a couple of lines of dialogue during the episode.

“Did some serious acting on @Castle_ABC,” she tweeted late last week. “Ok, I had two lines, but still pretty stoked!”

In a preview clip from the episode, Castle, played by Nathan Fillion, tells the singer he’s a huge fan. “Thanks, that means a lot to me,” she responds.

Before he can gush anymore, Jepsen, 29, is called on stage to perform.

The episode, which also will feature Jaleel White as the star of "Saturday Night Tonight," airs Monday night on ABC.

There's Will Smith, as Deadshot, with shaved head, goatee and a very large gun.

 

Ayer also posted a separate photo of Smith, showing off his machinery.

Meanwhile in the group photo, Smith's Focus co-star Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, looks like a scary goth cheerleader with blue streaks in her hair, while model Cara Delevingne appears dark and mysterious as Enchantress.

"This will be magic," Delevinge wrote on Instagram, where she posted the cast photo.

Missing in the photo were Jared Leto as the Joker and Viola Davis, who will play Amanda Waller, the government agent who manages this squad of villains-turned=heroes.

Ayer tweeted an earlier preview of Leto in character, and he's definitely no joke.

Araya Diaz/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- When Bruce Jenner told ABC News' Diane Sawyer last month that he’s transgender, he said that his family had been supportive.

However, it was tough for his ex-wife, Kris Jenner, to digest the information at first.

In a trailer for a special two-part episode of E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians to air later this month, she is seen crying to her daughter, Kim Kardashian.

"I have these memories of this life and I feel sometimes like it didn’t exist,” Kris Jenner said through tears.

The former Olympian and Kris Jenner were married in 1991 and announced their split in 2013. Together they have two daughters, Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17.

Kardashian, 34, tried to make her mother see things from Bruce Jenner’s point of view.

“He has to deal with this for his entire life of waking up and feeling like, 'Woah! This isn’t my body. This doesn’t feel comfortable,’” she told her mother. “That’s the only way I can kind of imagine it. And you really have to, like, let go."

HBO(LOS ANGELES) -- WARNING: Spoilers ahead!

Fans who read and did not read the books were both surprised Sunday night on Game of Thrones when Ser Barristan the Bold was killed off. Barristan -- who is the advisor to the mother of dragons, Daenerys Targaryen -- is still alive in all the books, so everyone was caught off guard.

The actor who played the character, Ian McElhinney, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his demise.

"The totality of it didn’t really hit me until once it was over, and then I was surprised how emotional I felt. The guys were lovely; they gave me a really nice gift. I got a little bit tearful. It’s been great fun," he told the magazine.

In fact, McElhinney admitted he read the books, too.

"So I thought this season I was going to have more to do, and I was really looking forward to that," he added.

"And then I got my dates from my agent and I thought, ‘That doesn’t tally.’ Because there was no way if they were sticking to the books that I should be in for that number of weeks. It seemed to me they must be writing me out. So I had a word with the line producer and said, 'Can you corroborate that they’re writing me out?' Then the [showrunners] rang me and told me, ‘Your time is up in this series.’ So perhaps I took them by surprise that I knew," he said.

McElhinney was happy that he went out fighting.

"He had to be seen fighting. He’s been talked about as the greatest knight that ever was, so he’s got to fight. So it’s great that he does," he added.

ABC(NEW YORK) -- Reese Witherspoon is back on the big screen in the comedy Hot Pursuit, playing a police officer who must escort a witness, played by Sofia Vergara, to a federal trial. Although Vergara is difficult onscreen, Witherspoon said off-screen, she was a delight to work with.

"I was such a huge fan of her on Modern Family and when I got to actually sit with her and we started talking about what kind of movie we want to make together, I was just so charmed by her," said Witherspoon on Monday's Good Morning America. "She's just as lovely in person as she seems on TV."

In the film, the two travel from San Antonio to Dallas, and things get a bit rough along the way.

"Oh my gosh. We had fight scenes. And yeah, she would throw me around the room and I ended up in the emergency room one night," Witherspoon admitted. "They were just like, 'Did somebody shake you really hard because...?' I said, 'Yes! Sofia Vergara.'"

Witherspoon not only starred in Hot Pursuit: it's also the third film, following Gone Girl and Wild, produced by her production company, Pacific Standard. Witherspoon said she's trying to make more female-oriented movies that portray women positively.

"I have a daughter, who's almost 16, and it's so important to me that she sees herself onscreen," said Witherspoon, "and there's little girls out there like her that want to see themselves."

Hot Pursuit is in theaters Friday.

ABC(LOS ANGELES) — The fans will have their voices heard on Monday night's edition of Dancing with the Stars.

The six remaining couples will perform a dance style voted on by the viewers.

Each pair will also team up with an eliminated pro or troupe member for a trio dance highlighting the jive, paso doble, samba or salsa.

Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec and his partner, Kym Johnson, enter the night tied for last place, following their Argentine tango last week. He's not panicking, though -- he says, "I think you just gotta do the best you can and hope the scores are there...and that the fans keep you there."

Dancing with the Stars
airs Monday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC. A special results show, featuring a double elimination, will follow the next night at 8 p.m. ET.

  • Robert Herjavec, Kym Johnson and Jenna Johnson
  • Nastia Liukin, Derek Hough and Sasha Farber
  • Riker Lynch, Allison Holker and Brittany Cherry

Win McNamee/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Madonna may be having second thoughts about that onstage kiss she shared with Drake at last month's Coachella Music Festival.

During an online question and answer session on Saturday, the 56-year-old singer was asked if Drake, 28, was a good kisser.

"You asked the million dollar question...I kissed a girl, and I liked it," Madonna responded.

When another fan asked what advice Madonna would give her younger self, knowing what she knows now, the singer replied, "Don't kiss Drake, no matter how many times he begs you to."

After the kiss, which took place while Drake was seated onstage, he responded by leaning forward and covering his mouth.

"Don't misinterpret my shock!! he explained in an Instagram post the next day. "I got to make out with the queen Madonna and I feel [100] about that forever. Thank you @Madonna."

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have split.

The skier and the golfer's decision to end their "nearly three years together" was mutual, Vonn said on social media Sunday, citing their "hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart."

Vonn wrote on Facebook: "After nearly three years together, Tiger and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. I will always cherish the memories that we've created together. Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart."

The pro athletes also used Facebook to announce the start of their relationship.

In March 2013, Vonn wrote: "I guess it wasn't a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy."

Woods posted at the time: "Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes."

Paul Hawthorne/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Chad L. Coleman, who plays Tyreese on The Walking Dead and also portrayed Cutty on The Wire, has apologized for a profanity-laced rant on a New York City subway on Friday that was caught on video and posted to YouTube.

"Where are my humanitarians?" Coleman screams in the video, before announcing, "Yes, I'm Chad L. Coleman. I'm on The Wire and The Walking Dead."

"And when you record what I said," he continues, "tell me what the f**king you exposed. Nothing but the truth."

Coleman explains to TMZ he had a lot of "built up frustration" as a result of the death of Baltimore resident Freddie Gray, who died of severe spinal injuries after being in police custody.

The actor says he lost it when a man on the train used the "n" word in referring to him.  The guy's friend said she recognized Coleman, and he responded by saying, "No, we don't know that n****r."

Coleman insists to TMZ that he was not drunk during the rant, but admits he's not proud he couldn't control his emotions.

He told the gossip website he wanted to apologize to the cast of The Walking Dead and his family.

The Walking Dead recently wrapped up its fifth season on AMC.

Matthew Lloyd/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Monday is May 4th, and thanks to a punny 1979 London Evening News headline and a legion of die-hard fans, it's known the world over as "Star Wars Day."

The headline about the election of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher -- "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations" -- inspired a grassroots movement for Star Wars junkies to celebrate George Lucas' galaxy far, far away.  

The first such organized May the 4th celebration took place in Toronto, Canada in 2011, but thanks to December's release of J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens that debuted at last month's Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, fandom is at a fever pitch this May 4.

Many of the new movie's returning favorites, including Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels -- better known as Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, and C-3PO -- joined Abrams and producer and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy at the confab.

"You guys grew up with us, so, so it's an amazing thing to a part of so many people's childhoods -- and to be a toy at the same time," Fisher said to laughs. "So thank you for playing with me when I'm plastic."

Hamill called the fans more "family" than anything else, for keeping the faith all these years. He also joked how he once hoped the original blockbuster might out-gross Planet of the Apes. That it did, in spades.

Abrams said he'll never forget seeing the Star Wars titles slam onto the screen for the first time, commenting it was the "first time a movie made me laugh that way, and made me believe in another world that way," and explained, "it was really George Lucas' brilliance not only creating these incredible characters and this amazing universe, but also that it, it, it had just heart, and the biggest thing for me is it had such hope."

Kennedy explained there's a "generational" appeal of the saga that is so important to the filmmakers behind the new trilogy and other Star Wars projects. She mentioned, "everybody has a Star Wars story."

At Celebration Anaheim, they were also joined by some of the series' new stars, including John Boyega and Daisy Ridley -- who now can also be seen in a Vanity Fair cover story about the film, and in a photo spread shot by Annie Leibowitz, along with Harrison Ford, who was still recovering from his recent plane crash and unable to attend the expo.

Speaking of the photoshoot, an accompanying video gives some never-before-seen peeks at the movie, especially of Adam Driver, unmasked in his black Sith robes, and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o wearing a motion-capture suit, meaning she could be a partially computer-generated character.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
, opens Dec. 18. The film will be released by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

Jason Davis/Getty Images for the Muscular Dystrophy Association(CHICAGO) — A Labor Day television tradition is no more.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association has announced it is discontinuing its annual telethon, the origins of which trace back to the mid-1950s.

The telethon was mainly associated with Jerry Lewis, who hosted it for more than four decades and memorably sang "You'll Never Walk Alone" on the show. He was dropped as host by the MDA in 2011.

Steven M. Derks, MDA president and CEO, said in a post on the organization's website, "In its heyday, the MDA telethon sparked an era of giving and volunteerism across America inspired by courageous MDA families who became household heroes. ...While televisions and telephones are still in play today to engage supporters, cost-effective digital media are now the preferred channels of choice."

The telethon welcomed numerous celebrities through the years, from John Lennon and Michael Jackson to Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Lopez. ABC aired a shortened, two-hour version of the telethon the past two years.

The MDA says the telethon raised a total of more than two billion dollars in donations.
