Talk about a big Hollywood treat for a small Washington state town!

Johnny Depp is currently filming the upcoming flick Lucky Them in the Seattle area, and he surprised small-town fans when he serenaded locals in the town of Carnation while taking a break from work.

The 49-year-old actor apparently had no qualms about interacting with his starstruck locals, looking relaxed and content as he played guitar and posed for pics.

Local reports suggest Depp was filming at a small lodge near the town, located in the Snoqualmie Valley and boasting a population of fewer than 2,000, when he decided upon the impromptu performance.

And from the looks of his smiling fans, he certainly made their day!

The Welsh actor, 27, confirmed the news that he has been cast in the forthcoming new series of the ITV period drama to his followers on Twitter.

He tweeted: ‘I can announce that I’m in the new season four of Downton Abbey. So excited. My heart is beating a little too fast…’

Cullen, who has appeared in the first series of Black Mirror and hit indie film Weekend, took the chance to thank his fans for their support.

He added: ‘Thank you for all the amazing messages. Really touched.’

Carnival Films and Masterpiece on PBS – which broadcasts the show in the US – announced the news that Cullen would be joining the cast as Lord Gillingham.

His character, who is tipped to be widow Lady Mary’s new love interest, is described as ‘an old family friend of the Crawleys who visits the family as a guest for a house party’.

James Franco keeps on the same gay denial




The straight heartthrob insists he’s accepted the question mark over his sexuality, which wasn’t helped when he volunteered to perform oral sex on a bloke in his 2011 flick The Broken Tower.

‘One of the things that’s very much part of my public image is the question of my sexuality,’ the 34-year-old conceeded, ‘it’s not something that bothers me in the slightest. It hasn’t gone away and I get asked about it from all sides. It’s partly my doing and partly not my doing.’

While the 127 Hours star insists he’s comfortable with his sexuality, he reckons it’s high time big name Hollywood stars come out despite fears gay stars can’t win straight roles.

‘I think that the people I have known who are performers who haven’t publicly come out didn’t because they’re afraid it’ll hurt their careers. And they’re afraid they won’t be able to play straight roles anymore,’ said Franco.

But he reckons times have changed and a gay actor could make it playing a straight role.

‘I think I could see a really big name coming out and doing that,’ he told Attitude magazine.

‘I think the time is about right. I’m not an authority on this but if I think about it for a second…if there’s somebody that was well respected and very secure with their career, I could see it happening in a very positive way.’

Read the full interview in the April issue of Attitude magazine out on Wednesday.

John Stamos Teams Up with The Black Keys

Uncle Jesse Drums on the Keys' New Album, Calls Patrick Carney an 'Inspiration'


Following the success of their last grammy-winning album, El Camino, The Black Keys are really "reaching for the stars" on their new album follow up, and one of those stars include Full House's Uncle Jesse, aka John Stamos, reports MTV News.

"We're working with John Stamos," Carney of the Keys said. "He's actually performing the drums on our album."

You got it babe..."Uncle Jesse" will be drumming his way into The Black Keys newest album.

Stamos, known as the cool, impressively-coiffed "Uncle Jesse" on Full House, has been an on-and-off drummer for the Beach Boys for several years, according to Elmore Magazine. He also showcased his musical talents on the 1990's hit sitcom by playing random cameos with his on-tv band Jesse and the Rippers.

John Stamos tweeted at Patrick Carney of The Black Keys on February 19th:

Although Stamos may think Carney is an "inspiration", according to recent news, most beliebers would have to disagree. Justin Bieber fans lashed out against the drummer for his negative comments about their pop idol after the Grammys a few weeks back.

"Grammys are for, like, music," Carney said. "Not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy, I guess."

Once Bieber responded by saying that Carney needs to be "slapped around" a little, Beliebers had Justin's back and took to Twitter with rage. Youngins tweeted insults at Carney, prompting the Grammy-winning musician to take on a fake Bieber profile for his own Twitter page, according to Daily News.

He changed his name to Justin Bieber, though he kept the "@patrickcarney" handle, with a profile description that reads "official twitter for the actual verified Justin Bieber DOS virtual buddy."

Moving past the recent Justin drama, The Black Keys refocus on what's most important, their music. In addition to addition Stamos to their new album, the Keys will also be re-teaming with frequent collaborator Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton on their new album, according to MTV.

The other Black Keys member, Dan Auerbach, explained in a previous interview a few months back, "We're going to start making the new album in the second week of January and we're hoping to have it done by some time in March ... The record isn't written yet, we'll do it when we get into the studio. This is when we both work best, when we're dying to make an album. All of our records take place in the studio, in that we make stuff up while we're there."

After playing a series of shows in April and May with special guests The Flaming Lips, according to Spin.com, they will reportedly take the summer off.

As for John Stamos, besides drumming on the Keys new album, after stints on ERGlee, and The New Normal in the last few years, Stamos is set to star in NBC's I Am Victor, a drama about "a high powered divorce attorney with a unique view of relationships," as noted by Vulture.

We look forward to seeing and hearing the latest from tv's best looking uncle..."have mercy!"
