John Travolta has played a lot of iconic roles, from Danny Zuko in "Grease" to Tony Manero in "Saturday Night Fever," but there's one particular role that has eluded him: a villain in a James Bond film.
"I would love that. They're going a different way with their villain in this next film but I've spoken to (producer) Barbara Broccoli about it and she loves the idea, so that would be great," he said in an interview with the Telegraph.

Woody Allen has responded to the sexual assault allegations reopened by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow in open letter published in the New York Times last Sunday.
Allen, 78, rejected the molestation claims, saying it was his ex-partner Mia Farrow, who vengefully orchestrated the whole thing, coaching a then 7-year-old Dylan to make the allegations. He also said he's not sure if his son Ronan is his or was fathered by Frank Sinatra.
Dylan Farrow then responded to Allen's op-ed.
"Woody Allen has an arsenal of lawyers and publicists but the one thing he does not have on his side is the truth," she told ABC News. "I hope this is the end of his vicious attacks and of the media campaign by his lawyers and publicists as he's promised. I won't let the truth be buried and I won't be silenced."

Bill Nye was once again the "Science Guy" at a debate earlier this week against the founder of the Creation Museum.

Ham argued that the earth is only 6,000 years old, while Nye tried to convince the audience that the scientific community's claim that the earth is "billions and billions" of years is old was a better argument.
