Kat Dennings of "2 Broke Girls" is standing up for Lindsay Lohan in the wake of some trash-talking regarding the "Mean Girls" actress' recent guest appearance on the show. Dennings called "complete" bull on a Wednesday story that alleged Lohan was a "train wreck" on set, unable to deliver her lines or keep a straight face when the moment called for it. The editor of the blog Crazy Days and Nights apparently scored an audience seat for the Tuesday night taping, which allegedly ran long in large part to accommodate the guest star's gaffes, according to the post.

There's a new power hosting duo in town. CBS has tapped "2 Broke Girls" stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs to emcee the People's Choice Awards in January. Tuesday's announcement marks a change for the awards show, which was hosted by "The Big Bang Theory's" Kaley Cuoco for the last two years. Hosting gigs these days typically go to series stars the network wants to showcase, and Dennings and Behrs fit the bill for CBS. The network is also probably hoping for a bit of Golden Globes-like magic as well, after co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have reinvigorated that awards show for NBC. PHOTOS: Leading ladies of the fall TV season CBS also revealed the nominees for the awards, which were based on a record 160 million online votes, according to the network.

Kat Dennings is having a moment -- it's just not the moment she might have predicted. On Monday night -- just as her television show "2 Broke Girls" was airing on CBS -- the actress walked the red carpet to promote her new movie "Thor: The Dark World. " A few hours later, it was announced that she and her sitcom costar Beth Behrs will host the upcoming People's Choice Awards, that big barometer of the American mainstream. That Dennings, 27, has become a go-to girl in all kinds of broad entertainment is more than a little unexpected.

Michael CERA and Kat Dennings slide into a booth at Canter's Deli on Fairfax Avenue to talk about their romantic comedy “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” but mostly this reunion -- after last seeing each other in May for re-shoots -- feels like an excuse to worry over and needle each other with affection, like a youthful Tracy and Hepburn. Dennings, 22, who played Catherine Keener's daughter in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and appeared most recently in "The House Bunny," accesses her inner Jewish mother, training her melancholic gaze on Cera's slumping, beanpole frame and beseeching, "Are you eating?

Despite a diversionary opening salvo of post-feminist raunch and unfortunate racial stereotyping, "2 Broke Girls" is a solid, old-fashioned sitcom about two mismatched girls taking on the big city and makin' their dreams come true. It's so old-fashioned, in fact, that they're waitresses. In a Brooklyn diner. Where Max (Kat Dennings), the dark-haired, wise-crackin' downtown girl, rules the roost and Caroline (Beth Behrs), the blond trust fund princess, is the new hire so clueless she doesn't know how to "marry" the ketchup bottles.

Think of "Thor" as the ultimate Superhero Smackdown. In one corner is the canny Kenny B., a.k.a. Kenneth Branagh, a director still best known for superior Shakespearean productions like "Henry V," "Hamlet" and "Much Ado About Nothing," a man not usually associated with comic book adaptations. In the other corner are the mighty monarchs of Marvel Entertainment, a well-oiled mass entertainment machine boasting ownership of more than 8,000 comic book characters and more than $6.1 billion in worldwide box office grosses.

If anyone ever asks you what "Thor: The Dark World" has in common with "Blondie Goes Latin" and "Bomba and the Jungle Girl," here's the answer: It's the eighth movie in its franchise. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, as "Thor's" particular franchise is known, encompasses the new adventures of Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America and so on, worth billions around the world. (Rumor has it the next all-star "Avengers" movie will be two hours of actors in costume, counting their money.) So how's this "Thor" sequel?

Andy Warhol star Candy Darling loved movies so much that she strived to live in that projected flicker between illusion and reality. A transgender icon with a life as tragically short as some of the idols she worshipped, she's the deserving subject of an archivally rich remembrance, and such is James Rasin's poignant documentary "Beautiful Darling. " Using plenty of movie clips ("Flesh," "Women in Revolt"), new interviews on camera and old ones recorded by close friend Jeremiah Newton after her 1974 death, footage of her star-making off-off Broadway shows and readings from letters and diaries (with Chloë Sevigny as Candy)
