Viral Video Star Sophia Grace Brownlee Lands Major Movie Role

As Sophia Grace Brownlee would say, this news is SO GOOD.

If you're familiar with the tiara-and-tutu-sporting, British 10-year-old, you'd know her catchphrase is enthusiastically proclaiming … well, whatever she's talking about … to be "SO GOOD!"

The pint-sized pop star and perpetuator of pink has been cast as Red Riding Hood in Disney's upcoming adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods," according to Entertainment Weekly.

The movie will be directed by Rob Marshall and the cast isn't too shabby. It includes Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick and that up-and-comer you may have heard of ... Meryl Streep.

Sophia Grace shot to stardom with her cousin Rosie when Ellen DeGeneres scooped them out of oblivion after seeing a viral YouTube video of the girls performing Nicki Minaj's hit song "Super Bass."

Brunette Sophia Grace is the duo's sassy and talkative frontwoman, while blonde Rosie serves as her "hype girl," who is all about less is more when it comes to speaking.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

'Sandlot' Actor Tom Guiry Arrested in Headbutt

You're killin' me, Smalls.

Did you ever wonder how Scotty Smalls would turn out when he grew up and left the Sandlot behind? Well, I bet you didn't guess head-butting cops.

Court records show that Thomas Guiry, 32, the actor who played Smalls in 1993's iconic "The Sandlot," is charged with head-butting a police officer on Saturday, according to ABC's Houston affiliate KTRK.

This apparently went down at Bush Intercontinental Airport where a United Airlines employee called airport police saying that Guiry was too drunk to fly, police told CNN. That's when Smalls...I mean, Guiry, allegedly head-butted the officer.

He was arrested, charged with assault and is out of jail on a $5,000 bond, according to KTRK. He is expected to be in court next month.

Social Climber does not like the image of Scotty growing up to be drunk and belligerent, so if any of these allegations are true, let's pull it together, Smalls.

I bet the terror of hitting that Babe Ruth baseball into the Beast's backyard is starting to look pretty good compared with jail.


Who needs church for confession when you have Twitter?

The Interweb-using masses have taken to Twitter to confess their deepest, darkest secrets with the hashtag #confessyourunpopularopinion.

These earth-shattering confessions include not liking Nutella as much as everyone else, people's real feelings about cats, not liking Lady Gaga's music and, perhaps more shockingly -- unironically and genuinely loving Nickelback.

Well, now we know how everyone really feels. Cue the collective sigh.

Sylvester Stallone Twitter Smackdown of Bruce Willis

Welcome to this week's thrilling celebrity feud. Your players this week are the aging action stars Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis.

Stallone took to Twitter on Tuesday to gracefully and professionally announce that Harrison Ford would be replacing Bruce Willis in the upcoming "Expendables 3." He also subtly let the world know how he felt about the casting change.

"WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!" Stallone tweeted. (The caps are all him.)


Ouch. No word yet from Willis but we don't expect the "Die Hard" star to go down without a fight.

2) Two in New Jersey and one in Minnesota

3) 58-5-25-59-30 and powerball 32

Stephen Colbert's Daft Punk Video is Worth 5 Minutes of Your Life

Have you ever been stood up for a date and left wondering what you should do? Well, next time, think to yourself, what would Stephen Colbert do?

The answer: He would call a bunch of famous friends and slap together the greatest five minute dance party ever.

When weirdly elusive and helmet-wearing band Daft Punk cancelled its Tuesday appearance on the "Colbert Report" reportedly because of some agreement with MTV leading up to the Video Music Awards, the comedian decided to put together his own rendition of the band's song "Get Lucky."

The result was a delightful montage of a carefree Colbert dancing with everyone from Hugh Laurie to the Rockettes to Henry Kissinger.

The obvious takeaway from all of this is that everyone needs to do a lot more of Colbert's arms-in-the-air-like-a-touchdown-sign, one-foot-grounded, one-foot-used-for-spinning dance move.
