Remember Jon Huntsman? Yeah, him. The guy who isn't Rick Perry. Like other presidential candidates, Huntsman has had to sit back and watch as Perry and his ten-gallon rhetoric have sucked up almost all of the oxygen this week on the Republican side of the race. Apparently, on Thursday, Huntsman decided to do something about it, taking to Twitter at an unprecedented level of engagement. Huntsman tweeted four times, including one missive that was a direct slap at Perry and one that, well, mentioned Captain Beefheart.

A corruption-tackling prosecutor has been selected to head a new agency that will scrutinize the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, with the power to conduct investigations inside the troubled jails and elsewhere. After months of searching, the Board of Supervisors offered the job Tuesday to Deputy Dist. Atty. Max Huntsman, a supervisor in the district attorney's public corruption division who has been among the lead prosecutors in the trial of Bell city officials, according to county sources familiar with the decision.

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum acknowledged that Jon Huntsman Jr.'s departure from the GOP presidential primary would give front-runner Mitt Romney a boost in South Carolina, but declined to call on Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who also trails badly in the polls, to pull out. "That's up for candidates themselves to decide," he said. Huntsman's decision still leaves the race with four candidates dicing up the conservative vote and desperately appealing to evangelical Christians, who will be a significant part of the turnout for Saturday's primary.

Using a slide presentation that began with a stack of $100 bills atop the city seal, the prosecutor Wednesday said that the widespread corruption in Bell was the work of the city's top administrators - Robert Rizzo and Angela Spaccia. "There wasn't a mastermind in this case," Deputy Dist. Atty. Max Huntsman said. "There was a master and a mind. Mr. Rizzo was in charge. He was the boss, he had the power… but Ms. Spaccia made what he wanted to happen, happen. " After a month of testimony, but no appearance by Rizzo, who quietly pleaded no contest to 69 felonies last month, Spaccia's trial began winding down as the prosecution began its closing argument in a case that is rooted in the 2010 Bell corruption scandal.

As Jon Huntsman finished his presidential pitch to hundreds of Republicans cruising this picturesque lake aboard a 230-foot yacht, he promised they hadn't seen the last of him. "We're going to get around the state, and we're going to get to know all of you. We're going to shake hands, we're going to have discussions and we're going to talk about the issues," the former Utah governor and recent ambassador to China said, while his wife, Mary Kaye,...

In Jon Huntsman's final weeks as ambassador to China, he stressed that he would not decide whether to run for president until he returned to the United States — an important statement, because sitting ambassadors are prohibited from actively taking part in political campaigns. But while still heading the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, Huntsman accepted invitations to deliver commencement addresses in the pivotal nominating states of New Hampshire and South Carolina. In New Hampshire, two political operatives who are now playing key roles in his soon-to-be-announced presidential bid helped arrange his visit.

Moviegoers may be impressed by "Snow White and the Huntsman's" computer-generated trolls, flying fairies and mythical beasts. But it could be Colleen Atwood's complicated, handmade costumes that really steal the show. The film's Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) may be losing her grip on the title of fairest of them all, but she nevertheless tops the cast's best-dressed list. In some cases, some of Ravenna's 20 outfits (counting several multiple versions of the same gowns) took weeks to construct, though they might appear on screen for only a few seconds.

MARLOES SANDS, Wales - Nearly a hundred soldiers on horseback sprinted across the beach here last fall, dodging arrows and catapulted fire balls. Despite many casualties, the charging "Snow White and the Huntsman" army was determined to storm the castle of the evil Queen Ravenna, who not only can suck the beauty out of young women but also transmogrify into a murder of crows. Assessing the battle from an all-terrain vehicle was Rupert Sanders, a commercial director making his first feature film.

One Snow White fairy tale, two films, two master costume designers and a pair of Oscar nominations showcase just how elemental to moviemaking a costume designer truly is. If you've seen both films - "Mirror Mirror," starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins, and "Snow White and the Huntsman," starring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart - you know the plots are essentially the same: Each is true to the Brothers Grimm tale of beautiful damsel versus...

President Obama plans to make his first visit to China in mid-November, U.S. Ambassador Jon Huntsman Jr. announced today during his first meeting in Beijing with journalists. "After the president has been able to sit down with many of the good leaders here in China, I am hopeful . . . the U.S.-China relationship will be stronger than ever before," Huntsman said. Although Obama's trip has been widely rumored, it had not been officially announced by the White House or by Beijing.

Los Angeles County prosecutors have closed an investigation into the spending habits of West Hollywood Councilman John Duran, whose charges on a city-issued credit card were the focus of a nearly two-year probe. Deputy Dist. Atty. Max Huntsman said criminal charges will not be filed against Duran, who charged dozens of meals to his city expense account, spending more than $7,000 at local restaurants over three years. There was "no evidence available to contradict the claim of city officials that they were conducting public business during these meals," Huntsman wrote in a letter Thursday to a person who filed a complaint against members of the City Council.

British model and actress Liberty Ross has reportedly filed for divorce from Rupert Sanders, the "Snow White and the Huntsman" director who infamously cheated on her last summer with actress Kristen Stewart. She's asking for joint custody of their 5- and 7-year-old children, spousal support and attorney's fees, in papers filed Friday in L.A. Superior Court, according to TMZ . Sanders, who filed his response Friday as well, also is seeking joint custody but wants to share the legal fees.

While a recent cheating scandal involving Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson may be affecting their personal lives, it has yet to have any serious ramifications on the young "Twilight" stars' careers. As Pattinson hit the promotional trail this week to talk up his new collaboration with David Cronenberg, "Cosmopolis," in which he stars as a paranoid billionaire, reports surfaced that Stewart had been dropped from a planned follow-up to her summer film “Snow White and the Huntsman.” But the studio that released that film, Universal, insists that plans for a second movie centering on the Huntsman character played by Chris Hemsworth are proceeding and that Stewart's Snow White could still be a character in that film, despite reports that suggested otherwise.

The absolute lack of denials in the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal continued Wednesday with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders issuing his own apology to his wife and two young children. "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family," Sanders, 41, said in a statement to People magazine, which also had 22-year-old Stewart's apology exclusively. "My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart.

"Snow White and the Huntsman,"starring a fierce Kristen Stewart and an even fiercer Charlize Theron as warring sides of good and evil, is a baroque enchantment filled with dazzling darkness, desultory dwarfs, demonic trolls and beastly fairies. It is an absolute wonder to watch and creates a warrior princess for the ages. But what this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white. Perhaps they are saving the passion for the sequel, for it seems there is surely one to come after director Rupert Sanders' brilliantly inventive debut.
