BUZZ: "Dark Knight" Rumors, Lautner Gains Weight for "Twilight," and more

Twilight News of the Day: Taylor Lautner is so eager to keep his part as Jacob that he's been lifting weights and gaining pounds. He's put on 19 so far, and plans on gaining 10 more. Let's hope his upcoming meeting with Chris Weitz goes well, cause there's nothing I hate more than an actor-switcheroo mid-saga or series. I mean, how epic would Lord of the Rings have been if Sam was switched after the second film?

Dark Knight Rumors of the Week: The working title is Gotham, Eddie Murphy has been tapped to play the role of the Riddler, Shia LaBeouf is up for Robin, and Rachel Weisz will play Catwoman. I don't know what's weirder--LaBeouf in tights or a British Catwoman.

Connor Cruise, one of Tom's adopted kids, scored his first role as the younger version of Will Smith's character in Seven Pounds. I guess being friends with Smith does have its benefits.

• "Ugly Betty" Casting: Daniel Eric Gold (Charlie Wilson's War) has been tapped to play a love interest for Betty, who she meets at YETI (Young Editors' Training Initiative). Since he has a series regular option in his contract, there's a chance that he could stay on. So does that mean that he'll get a job at Mode or even better, will they start a mag together?

• Watch as Beyonce tries to play the angry, jealous, homicidal wife in the thriller Obsessed:
