Sandra Bullock Was the Sixth Choice for the Lead in "Gravity"
"Gravity" just set the record for the biggest opening weekend for a movie in the month of October. But SANDRA BULLOCK is lucky to be celebrating. Because she wasn't even CLOSE to being the first choice to play the female lead.
We heard last week that ANGELINA JOLIE was originally going to star, back when the movie was announced a few years ago. But after she bowed out, the producers went through FOUR more actresses before they got to Sandra.
They were, in this order . . . Marion Cotillard, Scarlett Johansson, Blake Lively and Natalie Portman. So Sandra was actually the SIXTH choice.

Harry Connick Jr. Is Getting His Own Sitcom on Fox
Did HARRY CONNICK JR. get a SITCOM out of his negotiations to be an "American Idol" judge? Maybe.
Fox has announced that they're developing a new sitcom, which will star Harry as, quote, "a successful entertainer and single dad who takes time off to reconnect with his teenage daughter." There's no word on a title yet.
It's pretty early in the process, so if this does come together, it wouldn't go into production until after the upcoming season of "Idol".
