NEW YORK — Paul Rudd wants to take you bowling — and he's bringing along some of his friends.
The actor is hosting a bowling benefit next month in New York to support Our Time, which helps children who stutter. The event will be held Oct. 22 at Lucky Strike lanes.
The guest list includes Gina Gershon, Mariska Hargitay, Rashida Jones, Julianna Margulies, Jesse L. Martin, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Denis O'Hare, Fisher Stevens, Victor Garber, Rosie Perez, Anthony Rapp, Rachel Dratch, Lewis Black, John Oliver, Mo Rocca, Steve Kazee, and Bobby Cannavale.
Rudd was playing a character who stutters in Richard Greenberg's Three Days of Rain in 2006 when he learned about Our Time.
Taking a break
Disc jockey Suzanne Carroll, host of The Jazz Brunch on WRVF-FM 101.5 (The River), is taking a hiatus from the show for health issues.
Ms. Carroll, who has battled multiple sclerosis since she began the show 17 years ago, is taking time off to address health problems. She is responsible for the advertising sales, promotions, production, music selection and hosting the Sunday morning Jazz Brunch.
Her last show before the leave of absence will be Oct. 7. She will return for a special Christmas edition Dec. 23 and then be back regularly in March, 2013.
"Taking my first long term break from my show in 17 years is very difficult, but with all the amazing support I have it is making this easier for me," she said in a statement.
NEW YORK — Lady Gaga launched her debut perfume from inside a giant-sized perfume bottle.
The avant garde pop star was in a large bottle — a replica of her "Fame" fragrance — appearing in the transparent glass where attendees took photos and watched the singer get a tattoo on her neck.
The entertainer entered the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on New York's Upper East Side on Thursday night on top of a convertible. She posed for pictures and interacted with some fans.
Inside, she laid in the bottle in a sparkly top, black skirt, and red wig. Then she took off some clothing and a wig — now appearing in lingerie, including a thong — and began receiving a tattoo on the back of her neck.
NEW YORK — Welcome aboard the mother ship, Emma Bing. The woman who was her mother's inspiration for writing what millions of pregnant women consider their bible, What to Expect When You're Expecting, is now pregnant herself and joining the family business.
Bing, 29, is due on her second wedding anniversary, Feb. 18, and guess who's going to be in the delivery room.
"Are you kidding me? Of course," Bing's mom, Heidi Murkoff, said Thursday. "I wouldn't miss it."
NEW YORK — Geoffrey Rush — who played speech therapist Lionel Logue in the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech — has repeatedly said he first found the script left in brown paper wrapping on his Australia home's doorstep. Now, he says he wishes he had kept that story to himself. Rush says other aspiring filmmakers have followed suit, leaving all manner of projects at his front door in Melbourne since the movie first came out in 2010. As he puts it: "The brown paper package phenomenon continues."
