Nothing says "I keep in touch with the worlds of entertainment, media and communications" like a healthy obsession with Gawker Media. Gawker media has at least 3 good websites on its list, two of which are Gawker and Defamer, the third one you will have to find for yourself. Here is Defamer's entertainment trade roundup:

· Owen “The Butterscotch Stallion” Wilson shakes his glorious mane and gallops proudly away from Paramount’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, possibly due to the studio’s inability to find a female co-star meeting the Stallion’s exacting standards. In a tragic downgrade, Zach Braff is now considered the frontrunner to take Wilson’s place. [THR]

· Fox orders a pilot of the Jerry “All Your TV Are Belong To Me” Bruckheimer celebrity-lawyer procedural American Crime. Bored of merely recycling concepts, Bruckheimer mixes things up by reusing titles, as American Crime was the original name of CBS’s Close to Home. [Variety]

· Jennifer Garner’s Vandalia Films sets up erotic thriller Sabbatical at Touchstone as a starring vehicle for the actress, who bravely refuses to believe that marrying Ben Affleck has effectively ended her career. [THR]

· Touchstone TV rewards Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Jim Parriott for his breakout, post-Housewives timeslot hit with a three year overall deal. [Variety]

· NBC ponders moving My Name is Earl to highly competitive (and lucrative) Thursday night, but Fox might be mulling a shift of juggernaut American Idol to that night as well, likely resulting in untold Must See TV ratings carnage. [THR]
