Elisabeth Moss has cut her shoulder-length hair short and gone platinum-blond, à la Miley Cyrus - but we prefer to think she's getting her Twiggy on, in keeping with the essence of "Mad Men" and its 1960s setting. Twiggy, of course, is British model Leslie Lawson, whose androgynous look made her a fashion icon and otherwise famous face in the mid-'60s. Moss rocked her new 'do on the "For a Good Time, Call ... " red carpet Tuesday in New York, supporting the film starring Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller, Seth Rogen and Justin Long, which opens Aug. 31 in limited release.

Nostalgia was a driving force behind Betty Thomas' desire to direct the family film "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel," opening Christmas Day. Thomas has fond memories of the Chipmunks album, "Let's All Sing With the Chipmunks." "I'm pretty sure it was my first album," says the 61-year-old Emmy-winning Thomas, who also directed "The Brady Bunch Movie" and "Private Parts." "I thought it was the coolest thing. It was my entry into the music world. That is one reason I would have wanted to do this movie."

Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner could be the latest A-listers hitting the boards. The pair, who co-star as superheroes in the expected blockbuster "The Avengers" opening Friday, could be Broadway bound as husband and wife in a revival of Tennessee Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. " Oscar-winner and recent resident action hero Renner revealed last month he was considering starring as Brick alongside Johansson as Maggie. Johansson, who on Wednesday received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, won a Tony for her 2010 role in Arthur Miller's "A View From the Bridge.

Beyonce has a bob, which would be big hair news even if she hadn't chopped off her long locks last week and gone for a petite blond pixie 'do. But she did just chop off her hair a week ago Wednesday. So why the quick turnaround, Bey, after having the long hair for so long? We suppose it's always easier to take that leap the second time you do it. Stepping out in Miami for a lunch date with Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy, the "Single Ladies" singer sported a reverse bob, chin length in the front and short-short-short in the back - held in place with a Greek goddess-style headband.

To attend the preview party for the $28.2-million Hollywood Hills compound flipped by actor-turned-developer Brad Blumenthal and his business partner Leo Hauser this summer you needed that valuable Tinseltown commodity: an invitation. Think movie previews and red-carpet events. Nothing draws interest quite like exclusivity in this town. Here's my insider experience: Turning onto a side street off Sunset Strip I left my car with the valet service and was greeted by about a half-dozen young men in suits with matching iPads bearing the name “The Agency.” One of these real estate agents, whose company is marketing the estate for sale, checked me off the guest list, and I moved to the driveway where a trio of Lamborghinis from a local dealer caught the eyes of passersby.

The first Steve Jobs movie will premiere next month, but it's not the film anyone expected. Funny or Die will release a parody biopic titled "iSteve" on April 15 on the Internet. It'll be the first of three movies based on the late Apple co-founder to be released. The movie will star Justin Long as Jobs. You might remember, of course, that Long was once a major part of Apple's marketing, playing the Mac in the "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" commercials of the 2000s. The movie will run between 60 and 75 minutes long and be the longest project made to date by Funny or Die, a website that specializes in short parody videos that often feature well-known celebrities.

No one can say "Strange Wilderness" writer-producer Peter Gaulke and writer-director Fred Wolf ducked responsibility for the gross-out comedy misfire. The "Saturday Night Live" alums not only kept their names on the movie, which opened Friday without advance screenings, but they also lent their monikers to the main characters.

The second game will be played at 11 a.m. today at Harbor, and a third game will follow, if necessary.

When director Len Wiseman received the script for "Live Free or Die Hard," the fourth installment in the Bruce Willis action franchise, he suddenly felt like the 15-year-old he'd been when he saw the original in 1988. "I was obsessed with 'Die Hard' in high school," says Wiseman ("Underworld," "Underworld: Evolution"). "The action was amazing, and the relationship between the good guys was like nothing else I had seen before."
