Actress Amanda Bynes was charged with reckless endangerment after police say she heaved a marijuana bong out of an apartment window in New York City.
She appeared in Manhattan court Friday wearing sweats and a long, disheveled blonde wig.
The incident happened at her apartment building on West 47th Street at about 7:40 p.m. Thursday.
Police say a building official called police to complain that Bynes was smoking marijuana and rolling a joint in the building's lobby.
The officers went to Bynes' apartment where they saw heavy smoke and a bong, which Bynes then threw out the window in front of officers.
The actor-writer-producer-fake-news-anchor is expanding his impressive list of skills by adding director, recently announcing that he would be taking a 12-week hiatus from his hosting duties on "The Daily Show" to helm his first movie, Rosewater, and now he's picked his leading man.
According to The Wrap, Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal will star as Iranian-Canadian reporter Maziar Bahari who was covering the Iranian elections in 2009 when he was arrested, interrogated and held in an Iranian prison for 118 days, accused of being a spy and released on $300, 000 after agreeing to spy on "anti-revolutionary" types and allowed to go home just days before his daughter was born.
The story gets rather meta since Bahari appeared on "The Daily Show" shortly before his arrest, participating in a satirical segment with Jason Jones that was later used as evidence that he was indeed a spy.
I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I applaud Jennifer Aniston's recent choice of movie roles that have her poking holes in her good girl persona by showing a new found tendency to play comically deranged (Horrible Bosses, "30 Rock") or silly (Wanderlust) and now in We're the Millers, she's a stripper posing as a suburban housewife. Bet you didn't see that one coming.
And as a bonus to her audience, these meaty roles give Aniston a chance to show off that ridiculous age-averse body and as this first trailer shows, girl's got it, and she's happy to flaunt it.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
Baby-faced Joseph Gordon-Levitt has basically grown up in front of the camera, from TV's "3rd Rock From the Sun" to plum movie roles in everything from indies like Brick to (500) Days of Summer and Inception but now JGL has taken a new step in an already-impressive career and has written and directed his first movie and we're finally getting a glimpse of his debut.
Don Jon stars JGL as a Jersey pretty boy meat head, concerned with, in the order outlined in the first trailer, his body, his pad, his family, his church, his boys, his girls....and his porn. In the preview, we see him working on or with all of the above, sporting tank tops alongside his on-screen father Tony Danza, hitting the gym, watching sports with male friends and courting the gum-chewing girl that may change him yet, Scarlett Johansson. Ah yes, but then there's that porn he mentioned.
Have we got your attention yet? Check out the first trailer for Don Jon, after the jump.
The idea of Michael Douglas playing Liberace might seem nearly as outrageous as Liberace himself.
Liberace, forever hailed as "Mr. Showmanship," was the excess-to-the-max pianist-personality whose onstage and offstage extravagance were legendary, and who wowed audiences in Las Vegas and worldwide to become the best-paid entertainer on the planet during his heyday from the 1950s to the 1970s.
He was the forerunner of flashy, gender-bender entertainers like Elton John, David Bowie, Madonna and Lady Gaga even as he kept a tight lid on his gay private life, which he feared could have ended his career had it come out. (His fans never seemed to get wise.)
With two summer blockbusters already doing major business at the movie theatre (i.e. Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness) we're still waiting for Hugh Jackman's hirsute turn as the surly X-men character and a new trailer for James Mangold's spin-off brings some heat with gravity-defying fight scenes and, of course, a lot of angry Hugh running with his shirt off.
The Wolverine finds the titular clawed mutant running away from his past and it's only when Yukio (Rila Fukushima) comes looking for him, with the promise of being repaid for saving her boss' life, does Logan emerge from the shadows.
The new trailer shows a bit more footage from the movie and makes it clear that though Wolverine has known loss and pain, he isn't ready to give up and will fight until the bitter end, which makes him a survivor. And a threat.
Catch the latest trailer for The Wolverine, hitting theatres July 26, right now!
Star Trek: Into Darkness didn't warp past its predecessor.
The sci-fi sequel directed by J.J. Abrams earned $70.1 million in its opening weekend. The original Trek reboot starring fresh faces Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana as part of the crew of the Enterprise opened with $75.2 million in 2009.
Abrams' sequel amped up the action with 3D and cast popular British import Benedict Cumberbatch as the villain John Harrison, whom Captain Kirk is dedicated to taking down.
Overall, critics were pleased with the sequel, which brought back its supporting cast including John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Simon Pegg and Karl Urban, earning it an 86 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes,very strong but a little less impressive than the 95 per cent score earned by the 2009 sci-fi flick.

Joel and Ethan Coen had almost given up on casting the lead for their film Inside Llewyn Davis. The part, a folk musician in early 1960s Greenwich Village, demanded the elusive combination of someone who could both carry a movie and perform the songs central to the film.
Then they met Oscar Isaac.
"It just didn't happen until he walked in the room," says Joel Coen. "There was a point at which we wondered if we'd written something that was essentially impossible to cast."
The Coens have long been known for their casting acumen, but they may have outdone even themselves with Isaac, a 33-year-old, Juilliard-trained actor with a few notable credits to his name but nothing on par with a major Coen brothers release. The film was greeted ecstatically at the Cannes Film Festival at its Sunday premiere, with Isaac hailed as the festival's breakout star and a possible Oscar nominee.
