Slumdog Millionaire

How sweet is this story, it makes us love little Dev even more. Dev Patel and Danny Boyle are going on ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ to raise money for Indian street kids. The ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star and the film’s Oscar-winning director hope to bag the £1 million jackpot for the Railway Children charity when they team up for a UK celebrity special. A source said: “Danny and Dev are keen to keep on giving back to the street kids depicted in the movie. “It should happen this year. To have Dev back in the Millionaire hot seat would be brilliant, and would do a lot for the charity.” The film follows orphan Jamal, who is born into the slums of Mumbai.  After fleeing his violent and poverty stricken home, Jamal – played by 18-year-old Dev – enters India’s version of the game show and scoops the top prize against all odds.  A spokesperson for the ITV show said: “We were approached by Railway Children about the special – and we think it would be fantastic. “Danny and Dev would play together, as with all our celebrity specials, but filming depends on their availability.”

First Glastonbury and now V, we hear The Killers will headline the V Festival in August. The rockers confirmed they will headline the annual music event, saying their show will be “bigger and better” than ever. Bassist Mark Stoermer said: “We are indeed headlining the V Festival and we’re lucky to be doing it on our third album – things keep getting better for us. We will have the biggest lighting show we’ve ever had – it costs twice as much as our last tour. When you’re playing big places you’ve got to give something to everyone, including the fans at the back.” We’ll see you down there.

Lindsay Lohan could land a role in Warren Beatty’s new film – if she agrees to live with him. Warren is keen to cast Lindsay as his daughter but is concerned about rumours of her past erratic behaviour on set, so wants to keep an eye on her.  FOX News said: “Warren, the smartest guy in Hollywood bar none, wants Ms. Lohan to come live under his roof – at least one of his guest roofs – while he shoots this movie.  Lindsay is said to know this is a chance of a lifetime and a way to re-start her languishing career.” Warren are you crazy? Do you know what you are letting yourself into? Well we wish you luck.
