Also there: Kirsten Dunst, Jennifer Meyer, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Bryce Dallas Howard.

The show’s star agreed to serve 30 days for driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of .08 percent, as well as 18 days for violating his probation for a 2004 drunken driving case, according to court records.
The actor was not in the courtroom and his attorney, Blair Berk, entered the plea agreement. A second misdemeanor charge, driving under the influence, was dropped. The charges stemmed from a traffic stop in Los Angeles last month.
As part of the arrangement, Sutherland must also enroll in an 18-month alcohol-education class and attend weekly alcohol-therapy sessions for six months.
He’s doing like 45 days in jail for a fourth DUI?
While early releases have been granted to others, including celebrities, because of jail crowding and other concerns, Sutherland must serve all of his time, according to the plea agreement. The sheriff also was specifically ordered to not release Sutherland to electronic monitoring.
The 40-year-old actor will officially be sentenced Dec. 21, when he must begin serving the 18 days in the county jail. It also is the same day his show begins its winter production break.
Sutherland then will have until July 1, 2008, to serve the remaining 30 days in jail. He will be on probation for five years and faces fines and a driving suspension, according to court documents.
The actor’s plea arrangement ensures that production of “24″ will not be interrupted, Fox officials said in a statement.
“Kiefer made clear to us at the time of his arrest that his first concern was the welfare of those he worked with and that he intended to do whatever was necessary to prevent shutting down the show because of his situation,” the statement said.
“He told us that even if he had to sacrifice more time in custody in order to protect the show and the jobs of those who work with him, he would do so. From what occurred today, it is evident he is a man of his word,” it said.
Okay, it’s nice of him to not want the crew guys on 24 to lose their jobs, but what about the countless lives he puts at risk every time he drives drunk?
QUIT. DRINKING. KEIFER.
This is truly a 24-hour job.
I went to a screening for Elizabeth: The Golden Age this afternoon (which, by the way, co-stars Abbie Cornish, the Australian temptress with whom Ryan Phillippe cheated on Reese Witherspoon, and it pains me to know that movie critic after movie critic will review this film without even mentioning that very salient fact). Anyway, the film was incredible. I loved the first one, and this one was every bit as good. The dresses and hair were amazing. I’ve decided I’m going to be Queen Elizabeth for Halloween.
But that’s not the point.
The point is that, on Tuesday, a judge ordered Britney Spears to be booked for her August hit and run. You know, when she hit a parked car and the paparazzi got the whole thing on tape?
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Rebecca Omens said the 25-year-old pop star must be fingerprinted and photographed before Oct. 25, when she is required to appear in court. Spears was charged last month with hit and run and driving without a valid license after she allegedly smashed her car into another in a parking lot in August.
Spears was not present for Tuesday’s arraignment. She was represented by attorney Michael Flanagan, who said his client “must go to any L.A. police station for fingerprints and mug shots.”
From the National Enquirer:
The 55-year-old actor has suffered a severe drinking relapse and was readmitted to a Los Angeles hospital to detox on Oct. 8, the NATIONAL ENQUIRER reports in its new issue.
“David does so well staying sober and then something kicks in and he’s back drinking,” a close source told the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.
Weak and trembling, David was readmitted to Cedar Sinai Medical Center, where doctors began the detox process.
“He looked awful when they brought him in,” said the source. “His color was ashen. He felt sick. It was just so sad.”
See, it’s sad because he’s probably going to die soon if this keeps up.

Vanessa Carlton is great becauseâ€¦â€¦sheâ€™s hot, plain and simpleâ€¦.and letâ€™s face it, sheâ€™s got a different sound about her that I canâ€™t help but adore.

Over 3.9 million total viewers tuned into the â€œRock of Love with Bret Michaelsâ€ reunion special this past Sunday night (10/7) to learn that Bret’s love match was a mismatch. VH1 will continue to help Bret find his â€˜roseâ€™ and announces today that a second season of the record-breaking series will premiere on VH1 in early 2008.
After handing in her VIP pass, Jes, the pink-haired beauty proved she was not fit to handle Bret Michaelsâ€™ rock-star lifestyle. But the tour continues on and the Poison frontman is searching again for someone to â€˜rock his world.â€™ The second season will feature 20 new women pining for Bretâ€™s heart.
