BUZZ: More Pregnancy on "Secret Life," Knightley & Farrell in Gangster Thriller, and more

Molly Ringwald is pregnant with twins and they're writing it into "The Secret Life of an American Teenager," which basically means her character got pregnant by her ex-husband during their goodbye sex. This should make for an interesting dynamic. I wonder how unhelpful she'll be now that she too has to deal with an unwanted pregnancy.

Keira Knightley is finally getting back to modern times with a gangster thriller opposite Colin Farrell. William Monaghan (The Departed) is adapting Ken Bruen's novel, London Boulevard. Farrell will play a "South London criminal who was just released from prison and tries to turn his life around by becoming a handyman for a reclusive actress." I hope it's a hit so she can stop rocking corsets and big wigs. I'd believe she was a great actress if she actually tried something new. I'm convinced it's the only way she'll win an Oscar.

Ryan Reynolds had a cameo in X-Men Origins: Wolverine as the character Deadpool, but the director decided to increase his role and film a few scenes opposite Wolverine. The character is known as a man who acquires regenerative abilities from Wolverine, but becomes disfigured and mentally unstable after the operation. Maybe if he's a hit, they'll give him his own origin story.
