The first trailer for 'Paradise,' the directorial debut from writer Diablo Cody ('Juno,' 'Young Adult'), has landed online just days after the announcement that the film will have its premiere on VOD via DirecTV on August 8.

Amid a host of new developments announced at FX today, including company promotions and its first original animated series, 'Chozen,' to premiere on spinoff network FXX, the company announced that comedian Russell Brand's late-night talk show, 'Brand X with Russell Brand,' would no longer move forward. The cable network will keep in business with the comedian, however, developing an original scripted comedy to better highlight his talents.
Hot on the heels of 'Louie's three Emmy nominations, FX announced today that its much beloved and critically acclaimed comedy series will be returning for a thirteen episode fourth season next year.

Now a somewhat similar situation is playing out between Katy Perry and her ex-husband Russell Brand as she prepares for the July 5th release of her own concert film, 'Part of Me.'

Journey, Joan Jett, Poison, and Bon Jovi. What do these artists have in common? They're now music that middle-aged people grew up with.

Blige, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Bryan Cranston, Paul Giamatti, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and one Mr. Tom Cruise.
If this whole actor/comedian/divorcer-of-pop-stars thing doesn't work out for Russell Brand, he may have a secondary career as a baseball pitcher.

And now he's in hot water with the police.
