More Superman photos, you say? Why, sure! (via /film.)

My pal and former boss, Sarah Bunting, wrote a nostalgia fact-check about Dawson's Creek for Vulture. This makes me so happy, you guys. It is wonderful, funny, and true. Please read.

Also at Vulture: a chat with cutie Ben Whishaw, currently appearing in The Hour on BBC America.

A nifty reveal from my pal Mo Ryan at AOL TV: Danny Pudi — that's Community's Abed to you — will show up in a cameo role on an upcoming episode of Chuck. There's some enthusiastic-fan synergy for you.

The professional partners have been announced for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars. They're trying to get that win for Maks, no? Pairing him with Hope Solo?

The Guardian tackles a very interesting question: Can a theatrical production get too much rehearsal time?

And finally: That was a very cute reveal Beyonce did at the VMAs of her baby belly. And it didn't hurt her record sales, either — in fact, it seems to have increased them substantially, at least in the short run. (How did they write that story without saying her sales saw a "baby bump"?)
